Warning: Naruto Shippuden anime spoilers ahead
July 2016 is here and with it comes the month’s schedule for Naruto Shippuden! In June, the anime focused on Indra and Ashura, the sons of Sage of Six Paths Hagoromo Otsutsuki. Indra was the talented brother, ancestor to the Uchiha. Ashura was the one with no talent, ancestor to Uzumaki and Senju, that was able to inherit the teachings of his father and lean on the power of his comrades rather than his own. The story of the brother’s, which are fillers, continues in July, at least for the first two episodes.
Then on July 28 with episode 469, manga-following canon episodes make their return! With the story back in the present, Naruto and Sasuke are in different dimensions. Kakashi gives Team special 7 a special mission. Teamwork between Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke will be key to accomplish the mission with full force – seal Kaguyua! The previous canon Naruto Shippuden episode, episode 463, left off at Naruto manga chapter 683 so it’s expected the anime will cover manga chapters 684 and 685 at a minimum between episodes 469 and 470.
