Warning: Major manga spoilers ahead
It was August of this year we hopped onto a boat with our hero Naruto for an adventure full of seaside fillers. Well, that journey is soon coming to end as Naruto will be hoisting his anchor and landing on a paradise island. Anime Games Online is extremley excited to say beginning January 5th, 2012 Naruto Shippuden will return to canon greatness! Yes, that’s right the fillers are over and the anime will be once again following Masashi Kishimoto’s great ninja story! Below are the air dates, titles, and our educated predictions on what’s to come!
- January 5, 2012
Naruto Shippuden Episode 243 – Land Ahoy! Is this the Island Paradise?
We predict Naruto will meet Bee in this episode and ask him to train him control the Fox. However, Bee will turn Naruto down and eventually Naruto will be directed to the Falls of Truth to meet his inner, darker self.
- January 12, 2012
Naruto Shippuden Episode 244 – Killer Bee and Motoi
It is likely this episode will continue Naruto’s inner conflict with his dark self. Afterwards, we predict the scene will shift to the Hidden Cloud’s Motoi who will tell Naruto about his history with Bee.
- January 19, 2012
Naruto Shippuden Episode 245 – Naruto vs Nine Tails
In this chapter we predict Bee will finally decide to help Naruto. Part of that, as the title suggestes, will feature a clash between Naruto and the Nine Tailed Fox! We expect some Rasengan action coming our way here!
- January 26, 2012
Naruto Shippuden Episode 246 -The Orange Sparkle
We predict this chapter the battle between Naruto and the Nine Tails will continue, with Naruto being consumed by the Fox’s hatred. At least until Naruto’s mom steps in to save Naruto, give a little story of her past to reignite his will of fire!
So in summary, we believe next four episodes of Naruto Shippuden will cover Naruto Manga chapters 492-498. The dates above are all actual, but the titles are translations and may change once they are officially released by Viz Media. As for our predictions, they are just that, and may not be what’s in the episodes. We’re only making an educated guess based on our experience reading the great manga known as NARUTO!
