Sometimes I wish they'd stop drawing out the fights for so long, though. Normally in anime there's maybe...two major fights going on at once? Like in Vleach newr the end of the Soul Society arc, Ichigo vs Byakuya and Yoruichi vs Soi Fon. So it flicks between the two fights and it takes a couple of episodes (there are less important fights going on at the same time but these only take up a few minutes of screen time so meh).
But with Naruto as it's happening now (I watch fansubs so we're talking Shipuuden episode (on top of the 220 episodes of Naruto)), there is SIX fights going on at once. All major characters. And they've spent the last two episodes cocking about.
Holy shit, Showdown, the badass of Filefront, likes Naruto? I hope your talking about the Japanese version. I haven't watched either, and I personally despise most of the shows unrealism and fanbase, along with most of the characters, but it seems to me that most Japanese versions of English-Dubbed Anime is a sliver better.
