Watch on Crunchyroll

Let's discuss the ongoing anime in this thread.

The anime has just entered a new filler arc, The New Chunin Exam arc, which takes place after Naruto leaves to train with Jiraiya. First episode(394) was okay, if a bit slow. Hopefully things start kicking into gear next week.

I stopped watching anime a long time ago.

I'm not sure why they make filler, when manga ended, they can just end anime normally?

Tho, filler seems interesting, I always wanted to see how K9 become chuunin. I will probably check it.

I think it was rather promising for a filler Arc. But please, no more fillers after this!

Ah still forgot that this anime is still running. I stopped watching this anime years ago once they started the war l lost interest it was boring. Fillers again huh even when manga finished that's not necessary.

Episode 395 is up.

I'm happy to see Fu playing a role in this arc. Always nice to see more of the Jinchuriki.

So, currently there's the Chunin Exam Filler Arc (which is sort of canon, just timeskipped). Either way, spoilers below for the newest episode regarding the written test:



While watching, the one thing that occurred to me was that everybody couldn't communicate, and the risks of going over 100 were severe, as well as being below average. So while watching, I immediately got a thought of how they could solve the conundrum:

All those that have long-range communication Jutsu (assuming there's 1 in each of the 3 rooms), communicates to each other that EVERYBODY answers the 30-point question. That way, nobody will score over 100, and everybody will be the average and they will all pass. It would be a fantastic storypoint about how the masses are strong together (foreshadowing the final battle's alliances), while also allowing for everybody to pass (considering everybody can answer the 30 point question).

Toward the end of the episode, when Neiji and Hinata did their equalizing attack together, I think it was foreshadowing exactly this. About how equal results will cancel each other out and everything will be fine. They just did it in a flashy way to make everybody shut up.

I've watched it, I thought it was pretty good. A lot of people cheered during the NaruHina scenes and there were some funny moments, decent fight scenes and it was animated really well.
