  • Summary: Naruto Shippuden (a.k.a. Naruto: Hurricane Chronicles) takes place two-and-a-half years after Naruto leaves to train with Jiraiya. Upon his return, Naruto finds out that everyone in his age group has surpassed him in rank, and he's fallen behind. With only six months left to rescue Sasuke, however, Naruto must face even more dangerous enemies.

    Shippuden is meant for older audiences than the original series. The story is much more complex and emotionally riveting than I originally imagined it would be, given that the original was just mediocre. Unfortunately, for Shippuden to make sense, you have to understand the conflicts from the original series. The characters have matured and become more likable (especially Naruto). The show also does a great job of exploring various supporting characters by following them periodically rather than Naruto. Expand

    Original Naruto was great but Naruto Shippuden is much better. Anime became much more mature, Naruto is actually "cool guy" now, much more likable. Other characters from original has grown up as well. If you will be waching this show you can be assured that you'll be surprised all the time. Epic battles and emotional moments make it only better. The only reason that I gave it 9 not 10 is because of the filler episodes. I ignored most of them, they're good but main story is so intresting that I just can't wait 20 episodes for main plot to move forward! Anyway Naruto is great anime that have a lot of beautiful meaning in it. It is not a fairy tail, many hard questions are brought to viewers atantion. I recommend this anime to anyone who look for entertaiment on higher level. Expand

    Naruto is a amazing show and it really does have a great story. almost everything matches up perfectly in explanations of things with no stupid explanation like it just is. sure their are some filler episodes but lets be serious their really aren't that many and their not all bad. on top of that the show is base off an ongoing manga, they cant just get ahead of it or the story will fall apart. a few filler episodes every now and then to save a series from falling apart really isn't that bad. also many people complain about fights taking to long and people talking a lot during the fight. this really isn't that bad either because if your actually paying attention you'll realize what each character is thinking and planning on doing which builds lots of tension. Also more often then not the plans devised to take someone out are very very well thought out would leave many people angry if they just happened with no explanation. Expand

    I love the original Naruto series, but thankfully Shippuden is more mature, and delivers a more emotional experience than the original series. the characters have grown up and so has everything else about the show. While many of the stories are darker than the original series this makes the happier moments seem that much happier. the battles themselves are bloodier and much more intense and there are some truly terrifying figures in the show, many of whom are victim to utterly depressing pasts. also this show is far better in Japanese with English subtitles, as the English dub often sounds simply stupid for lack of better words.

    I didn't like the original naruto, I was pleasantly surprised at how well shippuden caters to the older audiences..
    A deeper story,
    emotionally developed characters, a somewhat childish sense of humor..
    You'll find yourself unable to look away, watching episode after episode..

    If you like Naruto, just continue reading the manga because the anime series isn't that good compared to the manga. Especially for fans of the English Dub. Expand
