        I liked most of the fights in those two series at those points (note that when I mention the first Arrancar arc half, I'm talking about the Karakura Town portion).

        Hueco Mundo arc, yes. But again, talking about the Karakura segment.

        Rock Lee's point isn't enough to massively bring down the arc.

        But it wasn't too bad here. It's in the Sai arc where it's headache-inducing.

        Anything else?

          Karakura is around the 200 chapter mark so the point still stands
          All the fights in the Sasuke Retrieval arc were irrelevant outside of the Kimimaro and Sasuke fights, and the former was disappointing while the latter was pushed back after a number of irrelevant fights
          Rock Lee coming back is enough to ruin one of the fights, it's enough to ruin his entire character arc, and it's enough to shit on the concept of consequences that the series so cleverly established in the arcs prior
          It's absolutely terribad here because Naruto has little to no reason even at this point to care about Sasuke and the series starts to focus on Sasuke and less on Naruto from this point onward

            I gotta agree with Doc, I never read Naruto but last year when I tried I dropped it at that point, the fights were so fucking boring not to mention how uninteresting the introduced characters were

                  Finally watched the first episode of the anime. I'm interested in the future of the series.

                    Even when you're doing something right, you're doing something wrong.

                    But if you're going to insist on being a faggot, consider swapping career paths from a crusty-ass film critic to a professional anime critic on YT? Only partially joking, btw. Newspapers are dying since this generation doesn't have the requisite attention span needed to read anything longer than a Tweet and social media is all the rage now.

                      I hear it's ufotable producing this. If so he's probably doing the right thing for once, a high production value would do this series wonders.

                        I think Bahamut was the last anime I ever watched... Any series prior to its release (2014 iirc) by this studio that I might've seen? For sake of reference, "Brotherhood" probably had the best production of all the anime I've watched. Ufo put out any comparable works?

                        Morph They're mostly famous for the Fate series, (I'm sure you've heard of Fate/Zero at least once in the OG zfags thread) and honestly are not even in the same realm when it comes to production value. Now, I haven't watched the KnY episode so I don't know if it got the same treatment, but they usually never disappoint in that regard.
                        here's a scene from the first episode of F/SN UBW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGz42vpeGKk

                        Haven't watched F/Z, although I've seen it mentioned plenty, yeah. The clip you showed is decent but not amazing (though that may simply be because I'm on my phone atm and can't pick higher res like I can on a computer).
                        Also, my mistake. I forgot that I watched the Castlevania anime a while back -- it was so short. If Ufo can match THAT level of production -- and did -- Kimetsu is bound to be amazing, provided they closely follow the story.

                      To be fair to myself, I get tired of reading manga at times and just want to watch an anime. Welp, KNY looked good enough to pick up. Like Louay said, the anime adaptation is in the hands of a competent studio, so I'm not making a bad choice.

                        Been watching this show. A bit generic, but some surprisingly decent fight scenes.

                            Production value is unreal, but I sorta lost interest in the series when the GOAT (UM #2) was killed off in a relatively underwhelming fashion. Though be sure to tag me when the anime gets to Flame Pillar vs. UM3 and Sound Pillar vs. UM6, because seeing those particular fights animated would be kino.

                              Because Mob Psycho just found it's rival in the AOTY.

                                Someone here hasn't watched Vinland Saga.

                                Hearing people call KNY the AOTY because of one episode alone is also hysterical.

                                  It's not just that episode. As I watched it I was getting more and more impressed by it. The character development of even the antagonist, spectacular fights (The drum demon fight was superb), the interesting worldbuilding, gorgeous art, etc.

                                  Not to mention it's really nice to have a shonen protagonist stop pussy footing around and kills his opponents, and in the most GAR way possible.

                                    The worldbuilding is subpar, lol. I can see your other points being valid enough, though.

                                    Anyways, watch Vinland Saga.
