By Marc | September 19th, 2009

It’s time for more Naruto.  Last time we left the precocious ninja children, Naruto was leaving the village to spend a few years training to prepare to fight the villains everyone knows is coming.
The characters are a little bit older, so does a few years skipped lead to anything good? (For anyone who wants to watch, the first episode subbed is embedded at the very bottom of the review.) Continue reading

Wesley Crusher himself is playing someone in it.
We really should be hearing something about the Shippuden dub soon, they’ve been working on it for quite awhile at this point.

Naruto Shippuden in the USA News!- Updated
By Marc | November 16th, 2008

Viz is gonna start airring Shippuden almost day and date with the Japanese airrings and try and catch up with earlier episodes as fast as they can.

Frankly it seems a bit stupid to do it that way since it’s a plot based show and the early Shippuden haven’t gotten an American release yet (and who knows what this says about the potential for the show on TV).

Update-  Tv Tokyo will be putting new Naruto on Crunchyroll subbed an HOUR after it airs on Japanese TV.
