A single episode usually is made up of two or three chapters. The anime has stopped following the manga ever since after the Sasuke/Naruto fight and has subjected to fillers for the last couple years. People expect that Episode 200 will be either the last of the fillers or the beginning of the next half of Naruto. Hopefully, they'll do the Kakashi Gaiden. With the story arcs that have been completed in the Naruto II story, there should be enough material to make maybe 30 or so episodes. The first couple being an introductory episodes, the next being the Gaara Rescue Arc, and then the Grass Country Arc. By the time they catch up to the manga, they'll have to go through another filler hell again. *sigh*Originally Posted by fayt lingod
It took 135 episodes to finish the first half of the manga. That's about 240 chapters. (I forget when the Kakashi Gaiden began.) After episode 135 was filler hell.
It is to be expected.Originally Posted by Nympho
