This week on Naruto Shippuden (271), a brand new episode titled “Road to Sakura” aired in Japan. This episode was a promotion for the up-coming movie Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie, which is just 2 days away from it’s Japanese theatrical release! In the episode, we see Sakura’s parents as normal citizens. Also, you may notice the movie’s poster is within the episode!
And before the Road to Sakura episode was a special Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie intro along with a short 3 minute segment promoting the movie. The song for the intro is exactly the same as Naruto Shippuden opening 11 (Totsugeki Rock), it just has Road to Ninja scenes. You won’t be able to hear it in the video below, however, because YouTube has it disabled. Anyways there is some new footage in both of the videos, so we hope you enjoy!
