Although I agree with Len's opinion of not rushing through with the manga story. I would prefer if they manage to extend some of the fights instead of explanations but this is just my view since I have read the manga chapters. Still though, compared to Bleach and how they manage to drag it out but not make it too slow pace. Naruto is quite weak in not able being to bring the fights alive. So far, the fight with Gai and Kisame was above decent. Not great but watchable. However, Ichigo's first fight with Grimmjaw was awesome, because we saw how Ichigo got owned so badly and in the manner which Grimmjaw did it. What I'm saying is that perhaps Naruto series could pick up the pace through dialogue and build up to the fights and extend the fight scenes.
