Hey there! So you've finished episode 52 and need to catch up before Shippuden. Or you've watched the series before and just want to discuss your most or least favorite moments of the original anime. Or maybe you just want to talk about the best fight scenes. Whatever the case, this thread is for YOU, the be-all, end-all discussion for episodes 53-220 of the original Naruto anime, which will not broadcast on Adult Swim but did broadcast in near-uncut form (sans swear words and an alcohol reference) in Toonami's original run on Cartoon Network.
Please stay civil and enjoy discussing one of the most popular anime to have ever aired on either side of the Pacific!
