4.0 out of 5 stars Zombies & the Akatsuki, 21 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Naruto Shippuden - Box Set 6 [DVD] (DVD)
This sixth set of episodes of the `Naruto Shippuden' anime contains a further twelve episodes of the series. The first six episodes of the volume conclude the grave robbers story arc with Naruto and his friends attempting to stop the zombie invasion of Konoha, prevent the destruction of the village by a powerful lightning jutsu and save Sora from going out of control. While this arc isn't all that good, it is probably slightly better than some of the other filler arcs that the show has had with some nice fights and some good characters. The major problem with the arc is that some of the information reviled here is contradicted by later revelations from the proper storyline but this is par for the course with filler.

The second set of six episodes return the series to the proper storyline with Naruto returning to his training and a new pair of Akatsuki on the hunt for tailed beasts. This storyline does shift the focus away from Naruto somewhat with much of the episodes following Shikamaru, Asuma and the Akatsuki pair of Hidan and Kakuzu. These two new Akatsuki members are probably my team of all the Akatsuki pairs as not only are the characters interesting in their own right but their relationship is also very entertaining as well.

I would have given this set a full five stars if it wasn't for the filler but as it stands I feel that the volume is still worth a solid four stars.
