The recent Naruto Shippuden episode 471, was a good episode if not for the 17 minutes of pure Obito flashback, making the fans a bit disappointed. Even the preview of the next episode, Naruto Shippuden 472 has more Obito flashback! All Naruto fans know that flashbacks are pretty much a signal for an impending death of that character. Hopefully the series won?t drag this too long as we want more of the ninja thrilling action – though awesomely cute,?the kiddie fights are not counted.
Obito?s Redemption and Death
In episode 471, we learn how Obito met Kakashi and Rin as well as how they became close. It was also revealed how he became a Chunin and then eventually becoming one of the leaders of Akatsuki. We all know that the outcome of this fight will lead to Obito?s death, though, it looks like the series is attempting to show the good and more human side of Obito, not to entirely negate the evil things he has done, but to show us what led him to be the person that he is and why he is desperately trying to get redemption by helping Naruto, Kakashi, Sasuke and Sakura against Kaguya.
Rin, even in death continues to watch over Kakashi and Obito. Rin?s spirit appeared while fighting Kaguya, holding Kakashi?s and Obito?s hand as if trying to lead them to fight goes to show how close these three were. Rin?s spirit gives them courage to not fear death so Obito took it like a man and allowed Kaguya?s ash bones to pierce him instead of Kakashi. Oh Obito, this scene pierced our hearts too!
In Naruto Shippuden 472, expect to see, as mentioned above, more Obito flashback and a continuation of the fight against Kaguya. Expect to see a build up on Kakashi as well, despite not having his Sharingan, he will surely show an impressive fight. Here?s a hint:
