Naruto Shippuden September – October 2016 Schedule – Good & Bad News

Warning: Spoilers of Naruto Shippuden anime are ahead

Naruto Shippuden anime’s schedule for September has been released and a lot of the fans might not be happy about it. First of all, the bad news. Naruto Shippuden will be going on a long two week break starting next week. The first reason for this seems to be that the animators need a bit more time as evident by the fact that the preview for the next episode is in black and white (see below images). The second reason is due to Japanese holiday on the week of the 22nd of September.
