After the spectacular Naruto Vs Sasuke final fight, many of you have asked us what will happen after this. Before we explain what is coming up on the anime, here is the October schedule of Naruto Shippuden.
|478||The Seal of Reconciliation||October 6|
|479||Naruto Uzumaki!!||October 13|
Note: The dates above are all actual, but the titles may change when the episodes are officially released by Viz Media. Also, This isn’t the full schedule of October as it hasn’t been released yet.
Here are what is coming up on NARUTO SHIPPUDEN:
- As evident by the schedule, Naruto Shippuden will continue after the final battle. New Naruto Shippuden Opening 20 & Ending 39 will begin with the Episode titled NARUTO.HINATA. This was confirmed by TV Tokyo. We’re not sure if episode 480 is going to focus on Naruto & Hinata’s relationship post war (between chapter 699-700) or after chapter 700 but there is high possibility that this is just after the war.
- A NEW ARC that will focus on Epilogue novels will start this winter as it was confirmed before (see below video). No date has been set beside winter 2016.
- Possible post war filler episodes (CONFIRMED). We expect there to be few episode of fillers that aren’t based on the novels or manga. In fact, the voice actor of Sakura’s father, Yasunori Matsumoto, tweeted that he spoke some lines for Naruto episode 701 (Naruto Shippuden episode 481). Since, Sakura’s dad didn’t appear in the manga nor the novels, we doubt that the episode/s are canon.
P.S. The Epilogue novels are official part of the Naruto story as we explained it here.
