Just wondering if anyone else here was watching Naruto on tv, as it's been forever since they showed an episode, & I have no idea where they left off. I'd atleast like to watch it subbed, but, I don't know what ep to look for, I can't even remember what was happening in the last ep I saw!
Before Naruto made it's western TV debut, I was watching from the start fansubbed. I lasted until... episode 170-something - around thereabouts, anyhow - at which point, the TV series had caught up to where the manga was (or at least close enough for the anime creators to stop and think about what to do when they theoretically pass the manga and run out of content to so faithfully animate). LO AND BEHOLD. They did filler episodes. For. Months. MONTHS. And I stopped. Because the filler episodes were utter garbage. THEN SHIPPUDEN FINALLY CAME OUT. And I didn't care in the slightest. So I'll never know what happened 'til it's over and I can ask someone. I imagine it'll go something like this: "Did Naruto win and become hokage and happy endinglol?" "Yeah." "Cool."
Well the rest of the year is going to be about Sasuke, if you're following the fansubs. The manga side of this arc seemed to last the better part of last year just to cover stuff with him and the series is just now getting to that point.

Hmm, I know the dub is near the end of the series, so, Shippuden(spelling?) is not far away. I think there were 8 ep's left, but, I just can't remember for sure. As it is, I think my cable provider had the wrong ep numbers, so, I'm not even sure what ep number to look for, but I want to finish the damn original series, & move on to the next!
If you watched up to the 130's, than you've seen all of the main manga arcs for the original series. I seem to have up to 220 for the original series, not sure if it ended at that point or I simply quit bothering to download it (only watched the first dozen or so filler eps before getting bored).
Shinpuden has some fillers in it, but it releases less often than before (I think twice a month?) so it has been closer to the manga arcs thus far with a small filler story about one of the other tailed beasts which wasn't half bad.
