How many episodes in the Naruto series are there exactly?

What a stupid thread.

4 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-09-29 22:21 ID:oPE0MBrh

I stopped watching Naruto & reading the manga when they started with the filler episodes.

5 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-09-29 22:48 ID:IpADogH0

I stopped watching Naruto when the first fight began in episode 1.

6 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-09-30 00:26 ID:QjBcYch6

I really don't give a damn when you all stopped watching it, I just asked a simple question, and was expecting a simple answere. And before anyone says," Then why don't you find out yourself how many episodes there are if its so simple", I just thought that I would have gotten a more accurate answere here......haters

7 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-09-30 05:15 ID:eDMUqx+n

naruto should have ended after season 3. i stopped watching once i realized around season 2/3 that they would reuse plot and recap and use stock footage

8 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-09-30 14:52 ID:Heaven

Naruto more like dumbuto am i rigt

9 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-01 04:12 ID:QjBcYch6

stock footage? explain a bit,this is new to me.

10 Name: KJI!XDpPLAUYlQ 2005-10-01 08:57 ID:Heaven

I stopped watching at 105 or so (just got behind) and never felt like starting back.

11 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-01 15:26 ID:paC6zJNF

naruto getting too childish i rekn... same thing over and over.. compare it to other anime like bleach.. naruto is nuffin ! :P

12 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-01 17:19 ID:Heaven

Naruto childish? Inconceivable!

13 Name: Simply Zoriath 2005-10-03 12:13 ID:dTxf0RgH

Honestly?!! Till now no on replied to his question... and do you guys even know WHY there are fillers?!! I bet you don't... go figure it out and then you will understand the use of fillers. As to the number of episodes, I don't know, and would like to know.

Someone answer... please.

14 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-03 13:14 ID:Heaven

I dunno, it just doesn't seem to be a good idea to start a thread with a very specific question. Either people will answer it or not but if any discussion takes place (happens rarely in these cases but does), it usually significantly diverts from the original, very specific topic.

15 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-06 04:55 ID:QjBcYch6

I just wanted to know how many episodes there are because, one site I went to had about 150, another 200,another had even more, so I was just curious.

16 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-06 20:41 ID:n0uY3VlN

Right now there are 154 episodes but there is going to be ∞ episodes.

17 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-11 23:04 ID:RZum4g8X

Filler episodes are used to strecth the source material so that it takes up more screen time. A filler episode is usually lighter in tone and contains more "fan-service" than the regular episodes but has no real effect on the major story line.

There are a couple major reasons for filler episodes. 1: to lighten the mood of the show. If things get too dark/emotional/tense the audiance grows tired of it and stops watching. A comedy/fan-service break will keep the audiance's attention. 2: To fill the contract. Series are licensed for a particular number of episodes (or episodes/season). The shows are paced so that the big moment of the show happens just before the contract runs out.

Episode 51 of Bleach (another long running series) is a good example of a filler episode.

Flashback episodes (a particular type of filler) reuses old footage and has little (if any) new animation. This is to give the animators a little break.

Long series like the Dragon Ball series and Naruto tend to start feeling like Great Expectations. Dragged out to point of being very tedious. I know I've reached my limit when I wish one of the main characters would die so the story will move on.

18 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-11 23:59 ID:9hH1ktR2


More reason to just wait until the manga is done and then read the series. See you in 2038.

19 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-12 10:53 ID:M2FKM489

The thing with Naruto is that it's a typical Shonen Jump-series
that keeps going and going and going duracell-style, and people
who have more... 'experience' with japanese animation think that
these kind of shows are repetetive, a ripoff of another show and
just too damn long, and find more pleasure in watching shows
that aren't meant to be milked until the end of time.

20 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-12 16:07 ID:cLDOJirt

bleach is a shonen jump series , will it die to?

21 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-12 18:15 ID:Heaven

Handy guide to anime and manga:

A series that is published in:

  • Shounen Jump: Not worth the bother.
  • Anything else: Sure, maybe.

22 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-12 19:10 ID:RZum4g8X

The thing that annoys me the most is the "Just wait 'til Goku gets here!" syndrome. This is when every one stands aound for three or more episodes waiting for the main character to show up, of course the main character is usually stuck doing some absurd "training", the only purpose of which is to delay. This probably to build suspense but after certian point suspense becomes tedium.

23 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-12 20:52 ID:Heaven

well, initially bleach wasn't half bad, like the first 4 volumes or something, it wasn't until the shonen shish kebab thing kicked in that it started really sucking

but the art is still pretty cool

24 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-14 17:10 ID:Heaven

Gotta say I like Naruto. Sure, it takes 5 episodes of nothing until the payoff, but it's worth it. Every series can't be uber serious like Evangelion.

27 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2006-02-14 01:39 ID:AmBgLOe2


watch more anime, and also are you like 15 or something

28 Name: Omega the 5th 2006-02-14 02:04 ID:Dgzw0jsc

No, I'm in my 20s. And I do watch alot of anime. I just get tired of the ultra serious anime and sometimes just watch to watch it and have fun, like when I first started watching it.

Also, if your going to insult me, have some balls and sign your name, otherwise it's kind of tough to take you seriously.

29 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2006-02-14 04:07 ID:Um3PawCa

>>28 seems to be missing the point of this kind of board.

30 Name: INTERNET THOUGH GUY 2006-02-14 04:11 ID:Heaven

I didn't start watching Naruto at all. I'm glad I never started.

31 Name: Wilford Brimley 2006-02-14 04:39 ID:Heaven

Dear Omega the 5th,

My name is Wilford Brimley and you are a faggot for liking Naruto.

Nobody cares about your name. Drop it, and start judging people on what they say, not who they are.

34 Name: yrui!sWV30Xl.cc 2006-02-14 15:55 ID:Heaven

have i made a wise choice by avoiding naturo like the plage?

one more thing >>32 go home i think i hear you mom callin

35 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2006-02-14 18:07 ID:Heaven

Depends on what kind of anime you like. I avoided it too because I didn't want to get stuck downloading 100+ episodes. Now that it's on TV, I've seen the first one or two dozen, and it's not bad at all. No worse than any other average shonen adventure show.

36 Name: Wilford Brimley 2006-02-15 09:08 ID:Heaven

I do not think anyone seriously thinks that Naruto sucks because it is a silly show for little kids. It sucks because of the horrible filler episodes, the staring down that lasts minutes, the recap of the last episode that takes 5 minutes, etc.

I agree, not every anime can be a serious series. Imagine that.. every book isn't Moby Dick!

37 Name: kito 2006-02-17 06:05 ID:Hc4mbjud

Hi, does anybody knows when will the filler episodes are going to finish so that they continue with the manga telling us what happens after 3 years have passed?

38 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2006-02-17 12:04 ID:vPIeh4w+

next season.

39 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2006-02-17 19:52 ID:Heaven


Fuck off, namefag.

Go over to your elitist, register-only forum where you can bitch about how nobody here likes Naruto with the other assholes who have large-ass signatures and 500x500 blinking avatars.



40 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2006-02-17 21:39 ID:Jbf+qyaV

I agree with >>28, and I'm anonymous, so stfu n00bz.

Of course, I also think naruto sucks, but the the jist of his statement is acceptable.

Although, >>28, names are not needed.

41 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2006-02-18 01:27 ID:W0RWW7Op

BTW, I saw an ep of Naruto on TV today. I only thought it sucked given its heritage and the crowd it attracts, and I confirmed it to be as sucky as expected.

>I agree with >>28, and I'm anonymous, so stfu n00bz.



42 Name: Wilford Brimley 2006-02-18 01:37 ID:Heaven

Stop being so mean to Omega the 5th. Now that I've had the chance to talk to him more he can convinced me of the fallacy of anonymous posting. ANONYMOUS OF THE WORLD UNITE, THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO LOSE IS YOUR NAME.

So, what should you do if you meet somebody who actually thinks he enjoys Naruto, and that for some reason punching him in the face is not an option?

45 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2006-02-18 17:26 ID:Heaven

First of all, for those of you that have been watching in the Naruto that has been dubbed and played in America: the voices do not do the series justice.
For those that are complaining about fillers: it can be a long process to animate a show, really long. I know, i do some animation. Fillers are a little easier to do, and they allow the series to expand its borders. The viewers can learn more about the characters or the animators can make new stories they have ideas for. If they just blastedd through the series, it would be over too soon.
Also: people have opinions. if they were all the same, they would be facts. some people like the show, some dont. That's fine.

53 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2006-02-23 21:57 ID:Heaven

No one gives a shit about the dub voices. The writing sucks completely when they diverge from the manga, not that the manga is anything terific in the first place. The series has no real defining purpose other than to make money. Thus, they will keep making it for as long as possible and for as cheap as possible. 'expand its borders'? Is that a new way to phrase "fuck we caught up to the manga!"? OVER TOO SOON? FUCKING EPISODE 173 and you are complaining that it would be too short?

The show might not be a complete pile of shit if it wasn't a complete pile of shit, designed to be a complete pile of shit. Naruto is so bad I cannot even watch it MST3k style. Oh and guess what, not all opinions are valid.

Like any shounen anime, it doesn't have a seasonal limit. It'll just keep going and going. Like Bleach.
Which is fine I guess, I couldn't keep up so I gave up.

65 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-03-14 12:47 ID:Heaven


You don't need a tripcode. Using a tripcode all the time is like saying "I'm SO IMPORTANT, I need to ALWAYS protect my IDENTITY!". This rubs people the wrong way. You don't even really need a name.

66 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-03-14 13:01 ID:Heaven

No it doesn't, if you think that you are a moron.

67 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-04-19 14:51 ID:JNXkTSva

Is Fullmetal Alchemist any better than typical shonen fare? I've always been afraid to check it out because young boys beating the odds, and overcoming obstacles spells mediocrity imo.

68 Name: MidsummersEve : 2006-04-19 19:32 ID:OGtaRSSh

The Naruto series was mediocre to start then got pretty good actually. Then when a very big climax came around, they statred making fillers... I think we're goin into the 10^ in fillers etc.. I've quit the series XD

69 Name: MidsummersEve : 2006-04-19 19:44 ID:OGtaRSSh

lol I just read the whole thread XD. Mkay I figured the main purpose of the fillers was to catch up to the manga.
I will defend Naruto as far as like the 150ths eps. cause then wbe get shitty fillers. It's a SIMPLE-MINDED anime, a fighting show for little boys. That's fine, I enjoyed quite a bit of the series, and I admit there were some not-so-shallow moments. But overall it isn't the best thing out there. Tough luck, most ongoing series get crappy. This is just a good example. Whatever the reason for the fillers, it was a bad decision because not only did they replace the original artists with other people (the style changed for the worse) but having too many fillers in a row loses audience. It's just not a good idea. Their choice though. I have to say, before going off and spitting bad opinions about the show, I would recommend watching is subbed simply because whether you like it or not, it adds to the quality. No it won't make this a #1 #2 or even #10 on the charts, but it puts it up with "Hey this is a little better than average". Something you watch when you're bored and don't feel you've wasted couch potato time.

71 Name: grr. : 2006-05-22 13:16 ID:C9MYTGYF

One thing. I. Love. Naruto. It has been my favourite series for a very long time and I've been so angry and disappointend because the fillers just go on and on and on..>___> I love how Naruto isn't all about fighting, (I am a grown up girl, not a little boy) but about many other things like loneliness and stuff. I adore the characters and I adore Masashi Kishimoto-sensei for drawing this.

The fillers SUCK horribly. And yeah, I think too that they are kind of a bad decision. Nobody likes to watch 40 episodes of fillers, one after another.. >_____< Geez..

I'm a very pissy person an it dosen't take alot to piss me off, but is dose take alot to get my blood boiling. I don't normaly do this but. YOU PEOPLE FUCKING SUCK. We get the concept that it sucks, but when someone just wants to say it's ok then let em. What the hell do you have to lose when they say it's ok unless you some egotistical ass hole who thinks they have to be right or the world will crumble under theur damn feet. In closeing you are all idiots an I know you will be gewtting pissed at me for days.
