Fuck this show. That was one of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen happen in an anime. The writers can’t come up with a reasonable excuse to get Sora out of there, so they say “The Kyuubi’s chakra disappears”. WTF is that?! After 30 episodes of this crap, you get to a potentially good climax and completely fuck it up with crap about friendship? There wasn’t even a fight, just Sora smacking around Naruto for a while and then it ends!And then they segue back into the manga near the end of the episode so they can justify what Asuma’s been saying about the king. 30 episodes, all for some stupid lesson?!
So for anybody who hasn’t seen the filler, everybody dies except for Sora who goes home.
Well, screw it, I’ll just look forward to seeing the fights I like from the manga animated. Though they’ll probably go out of their way to fuck that up somehow as well.
