Naruto Shippuden is an ongoing anime series based on the Manga by Masashi Kishimoto and directed by Hayato Date.
It tells the story of a young shinobi called Naruto Uzumaki (Maile Flanagan) from the hidden leaf village. He is a Jinchuriki, who contains the nine tails within him. Along with the other shinobi from his village they learn and grow together as they try to keep their loved ones and the world at large safe.
Box Set 26 comprises episodes 336-348 and takes place during the Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax Arc.
The usual spoiler alert applies here, we are well into the story , so don’t read on unless you’re all caught up.
“I want to sever the fate of this world…”
The battles still rage on the various fronts, the five Kage battle Madara Uchiha while Naruto and Killer B take on Tobi and the rest of the shinobi army are still trying to take out their resurrected ancestors.
As he battles Itachi and Sasuke, Kabuto is forced to face up to his past and he becomes trapped in a loop by Itachi’s forbidden Genjutsu, Izanami. With the reanimation jutsu terminated, many of the fights are over, but Madara has managed to find a way to remain and now poses a significant threat.
Tobi has activated the ten tails husk and with the breaking of his mask, we look back on his history and the creation of the akatsuki.
Things are really starting to get serious now as this arc progresses and the storyline is moving along apace, which is really exciting. There are plenty of revelations about the relationships and identities of many of the protagonists and this is of course a must own for any fans of Naruto Shippuden.
“You don’t ever have to forgive me and whatever you do from here on out, know this. No matter what, I will love you always.”
Naruto Shippuden Box 27 is available to buy now on DVD.
