Right now Naruto Shippuden is airing fillers – some funny, some serious, and some just annoying. We fans wonder when we’ll get back on track with the real, or cannon Naruto story. Well, good news comes from the Japanese anime/manga event, Jump Festa 11!
The Kage Summit and Confining the Jinchuriki Arcs will most likely make their debut in 2011! A promo poster, shown below, shows Naruto, Killer Bee, Madara, and Sasuke, all of who will be playing important roles in the cannon arcs to come. A similar poster came out last year with Mangekyo Sharingan Sasuke and Naruto with one of the toads. And as we all know, the battles between Itachi vs Sasuke and Pain vs Naruto took place in the anime this year. So the new poster is a good indicator that the fillers should end within the next few months. Maybe not January 2011, or February 2011, but sometime in 2011.
