It’s official, the latest canon arc has begun! Naruto Shippuden episode 243 has now aired and with it comes a brand new ending! It’s titled “By My Side” and is by a Japanese artist known as Hemenway. The ending is 1 minute 25 and is presented in a watercolor-like style animation. From our interpretation of this ending, it seems as if Naruto is struggling in the darkness because of Sasuke, but thanks to his mother, Kushina, he is saved and brought back to the light.
This is the 20th ending in the Shippuden series, and 35th overall in the Naruto anime if including Part 1.
