    No I when they said faked his death it was either how he got away from Danzo but that doesn't make sense or it was how he died which they faked. Shisui is definitely dead and died after he last spoke to itachi.

    They also faked him having his eye at death but he secretly gave it to itachi before he died.

    So 4/5 because of the animation.
    Yh that knocked off the 5/5 rating for me as well.

    I didn't like it. It was awesome in the manga, but in the anime, it's just ... meh.

    Better than Bleach's animation? Hell no. And at least One Piece's animation is consistent. I really wish another company could animate Naruto, it seems like Pierrot has really lost the skill that they once had.

    A majority 5 stars for both the manga and anime this week. Very good week for Naruto. Next week is probably going to be good too. Expect lots of flashbacks in the next manga chapter though.

    I would have rather them give this fight good animation and give Gaara vs Former Kage the bad animation. But no... apparently all the average/mediocre fights deserve better animation than the overhyped/amazing fights. This was one of the four fights in the war that I didn't want them to screw up with bad animation, oh and look what happened. These animators are really doing Kishi a disservice.

    I feel the exact same way I don't mind if the battle against the kages animation is not great but I wanted this one to be. Imo they just need to focus on this battle, madara's arrival and his battle against the kages, sasuke and itachi vs kabuto and naruto vs tobi that whole battle.

    They can take a break with all the kages **** I'm not to bothered.

    I waited to see what the anime would do concerning this episode, and it's **** in my opinion. A lot of things they have done were BS. Not that it was that bad for a normal episode, but for a episode of this importance, it was really bad man

    Download the epiosde in 720p from the base home page, I just downloaded and watched it and it was like 5x better trust me. The animation was actually "good" not great though but it wasn't terrible. If you have problem with subtitles VCL media player works well and displays the subtitles for you. Give it a go

    I haven't watched the anime in years, saw the thumbnail on NB and had to watch.

    5/5. Animation didn't really bother me, more interested in content and when they follow the manga, not doing sh*tty fillers, it will always be good.

    yap. right here! I think that's what pissed me out in the first place.

    Streaming vs Downloading:

    Downloading is much much clearer on every scene, can go full screen and still HD depending on the quality you download of course



    Downloaded once again:



    So for me the animation just about reached "good" but it wasn't great

    Haha exactly. That was terrible I wonder if sometimes they actually review their own animation before sending it?

    4/5

    + This episode was awesome, but not as awesome for a 5/5.
    + Itachi VS Naruto and Killer B in Taijutsu was really interesting. :y
    + I like how Nagato owned Naruto and Killer B without braking a sweat. :noc:

    - On some scenes the animation was worst than s**t.
    - Itachi in the episode said that Shisui's Mangekyō Sharingan can activate again after decades, but the Manga said that need around a decade. . . . . . . . . that kinda doesn't seem right. :shrug:
    - Why the f**k did they made Shisui's eyes different colors! Did the Crow's Sharingan rusted or something! :mad:


    Next episode: Nagato VS Naruto, Itachi and Killer B! AWESOMENESS! :mugi:

    And why Shisui's eyes look round-shaped? In the manga, it clearly is square-shaped!




    I give this episode a 4/5, too

    Re: Naruto Shippuden Episode 298 "Contact! Naruto vs. Itachi" – Discussion

    Really poor animation. Very disappointed. I wanted this fight to be animated like Minato vs Tobi was; thats the naruto animation that I love and thats what makes this so annoying. We all know that they are capable of good animation for a weekly series so it's painful to see such an awesome moment from the manga animated so poorly.

    The pacing was a little odd too with moments like when Killer Bee works as slow as he can towards Genjutsu clone Itachi (when he's being held by the tentacle).

    They also skipped some scenes from Gaara's battlefield too with the Raikage and Mizukage laying waste to the the army which i'm guessing they've moved to a different episode.

    The new music introduced was cool when itachi broke free, however i feel like they aren't using their music well, alot of the fighting had no music whatsoever. Konan vs tobi was a really good fight for example with the added music so this episode fell short in terms of music too despite introducing a nice soundtrack halfway through.

    I really hope they improve the artwork and the animation for the anime because this is just horrible :/

    (Also I am an animator myself so I understand the difficulty of animation and for the record the pain battle animation was not poor. It was an art/ animation direction that was not preferred by many but as an animator from the west I could appreciate the experimentation and risk they took with that style to emphasize certain movements which non animators only see as retard expressions as seen in numerous youtube videos mocking the pain battle )

    Read post #41 and #45 I recommend you download the episode from the naruto homepage instead of stream online, the animation looks muchh better. I only found out 2 weeks ago.

    As for the bit about gaara and the kages, that is not skipped there leaving all of that for most of February they just wanted to leave all the gaara stuff to one episode that's why they didn't do it before.

    I thought the music all round for this episode was pretty good music was playing during the battle, it was quite though.
