Naruto Shippuuden episode 381
It has been announced that the Naruto manga will end in five weeks. I am guessing that there won’t be any more fillers at this point and that the anime will end with the 400th episode. This is just a guess. Those companies like round numbers, so yeah.
So Naruto’s plan ended up working and Obito found himself in a position where he thought he needed to use the Infinite Tsukuyomi, a Jutsu that will supposedly enslave everyone with a powerful Genjutsu, a little bit earlier than planned. It just goes to show how much Naruto and the others are pressuring him. It’s those two (three if you count that annoying Zetsu) against an army of powerful Shinobi, including several Kage’s. It won’t be long now before the other Kage’s show up to re-join the battle as well, making it even harder for Obito and Madara to move.
I loved the part where Sasuke witnessed Naruto’s progress. He was annoyed by how much Chakra Naruto has nowadays and how well he can control it all. That’s just what happens when you’ve got friends that would die for you. Sasuke has lost all that along the way because of his desire to take revenge.
They might throw in a few flashback scenes to lengthen it all out a bit in order to properly reach the 400th episode, but I am not bothered. In fact, I wouldn’t at all be surprised if they actually threw in a few fillers to milk out a bit more money in the end. After all, the Naruto series (and movies) have been money making machines since ’99.
