I'm pretty much just finishing this war because I invested a lot in the Naruto series, and I do want to see where it ends and what becomes of Naruto and the shinobi world in general. But for me, the writing hasn't been good since the Gokage summit. The series peaked during the Pain Invasion story and just never picked back up for me. The war arc hasn't been handled well and doesn't have that same feel. There have been a few good things for me on the side that I learned like A and Bee's relationship. the second Mizukage battle. Naruto learning about his parents and meeting Kushina. Shikamaru, Choji and Ino all showing why they are future Jonin material. More on Kakashi's backstory with Obito and Rin. And Naruto bonding with Kyuubi, which is ultimately one of the biggest highlights of the series.

The constant flashbacks and skipping around makes it near impossible to keep track of who is fighting and who is not, and what condition certain characters are in. Some characters you think might still be alive are dead, and some dead characters you think are dead are actually alive, but the fight skips around so much you can't tell. Orochimaru's revival along with all the Edo Tensei zombies. I will admit some were good like the gold and silver brothers and the 2nd Mizukage and 3rd Raikage. Others felt very lazy and unnecessary to bring back. But I ranted on them enough. Sakura's lack of build up to be Tsunade junior, and to gain a future Sannin title when she's done very little. I love Sakura and all but that needs build up. And a bunch of other stuff where the bad outweighs the good.
RIP anime version of Glovehead. Pokemon Adventures will save you.
