From episode 136 onward these Naruto episodes are what is known as fillers. In the original Japanese, the anime was catching up to the manga and so they created episodes so that the manga could get a bit ahead. Also, the two episode format continues as Cartoon Network has the schedule until the end of March. For discussion of the continuing English Viz manga canon please go to the English Manga Discussion subforum.

Rules for Episode Discussion:

  • This thread is for the discussion of these two episodes only. Discuss the plot, discuss the characters, comment on lines, and that sort of thing. If it doesn't have to do with these episodes, don't be surprised if your post is removed.

  • If you want to generally complain about the fillers go here:

    the ANTI-nejiXhinata fanclub.

  • If you complain about fillers (and not critical discussion of the episodes), posts will be removed. Do not ask when fillers will end or if episodes will be skipped. WE DO NOT KNOW YET!

  • To complain about the dub in general go here (this is where you complain about the voice acting):


  • Spoilers for episodes beyond these two will be removed if posted in the thread. There is a dub discussion thread here for discussion of episodes beyond 147 here:

    Sakura: 6.66

  • Don't ask for episodes (if you need clarification just pm me). You can say you missed the episodes, but don't ask for them.

  • Be mindful - you never know who is lurking in the thread. If you see a VA, please don't ask a question in this thread. Go to the Recording Studios section instead.

Read the revised dub section rules before posting as well please.

Please be sure to use the report post button if necessary.

Filler countdown: 73 episodes to go (after these episodes air)

"His FIANCE'!?"
"Hmm. My radar must be off."
"Ya' THINK?!

First two minutes, and it's already good.
Seems they flash green instead of red during the stylized violent scenes, either to remove the blood like reference, or since red apparently can cause seizures for some viewers.
LOL. He put it in the hole. Innunedo FTW! I'm gonna go ol'skool for the moment and say that 4Kids would've went out of their way to just remove that one scene 'cause of my dirty mind :D.
They used green 'cause red is too blood-like.

EDIT: Did Naruto just call Mizuki a "lousy ass?"
Man, this animation is tops. It looks like the same guy who did the Sasuke vs Oro, Naruto vs Sasuke, and Lee vs Garra fights. Forgot his name though.
Oh no!!! You know what that is!!!

Mizuki turns into Tony the TIger

Second episode is up next!!! X3

Seems similar to Norio Matsumoto's style, couldn't find the animation credits if it was actually his work or another's in similar style.
You know, I'm beginning to miss when there were title cards and they were read by Naruto :(.

EDIT: Whirlpool formation?
