Is it me, or does Naruto not have that flair that it once had before? It is hard to describe, but these filler episodes right now are not the Naruto that I fell in love with. What's up with that?
Maybe because the episodes right now are what they really are, "fillers", even though they are made to appear to move the story along. I happen to like Naruto for making each saga in the series flow and not seem to drag on, like Dragonball Z and such. But now, these filler episodes are leaning toward that Dragonball-esque style, and it's not what I expect Naruto should be.
I hope it gets better in the future.
