Naruto Shippuden is one of my favorite anime series of all time. It is the sequel to Naruto and starts off two years after the story of Naruto. Naruto Shippuden is a serie about epic ninja's, The animation in the fights is top-notch, the characters are cool(except Sakura) and the storyline is great. Even though the canon episodes of this anime are awesome, the filler episodes are absolutely terrible. It seems the producers of Naruto Shippuden love making filler episodes because there are alot of them. I absolutely recommend skipping them. Most of the filler episodes have horrible stories where Naruto and the other characters look like idiots. The ninja ostrich filler (Episode 185) for example. Where a talking ninja ostrich defeats Naruto just after Naruto has defeated pain.
