Naruto Shippuden schedule for March 2015
Yes, better late than never, as I now have full time to give this blog a makeover.
Feelings are mixed among fans, as some don’t like Kishimoto’s current direction and how the storyline ended, whereas there are others excited with the current developments. Well, shipping wars can do that to any popular shonen series.
If anything, we also are living now a wave of nostalgia over which were the best moments.
Frankly, I’m one of those who didn’t like very much how Kishimoto ended it on chapter 700, but I think that it’s probably that the author got tired of the series after 15 years, faced editorial pressure and studio pressure and simply wanted to wrap it up at once, and begin another storyline with Boruto to continue turning a profit.
Episode 402 “Escape vs. Pursuit” (逃走VS追跡) March 5, 2015
Episode 403 “Unwavering Gutsiness” (諦めないド根性) March 12, 2015
Episode 404 “Tenten’s Troubles” (テンテンの悩み) March 19, 2015
Episode 405 “The Imprisoned Pai r” (閉じ込められた二人) March 26, 2015
The pre-post-time (?) skip fillerology continues with the Chunin exams that everyone did while Naruto was away training with Jiraiya, focused on Shino, Kiba and Hinata, and eventually on TenTen, Lee and Neji. There are great character moments.
