Naruto Shippuden 476: Release Delayed, Next Episode Will Run For An Hour To Conclude The Series

By on

Naruto Shippuden 476 is going to be one of the biggest episodes in the anime series. It will feature the much-anticipated battle between Uzumaki Naruto and Uchiha Sasuke. But, producers revealed that fans will have to wait longer for the installment as it will not be aired this week.

Viewers saw Sasuke announcing a revolution against the five Kages, tailed beasts and Naruto in Episode 475. He wants to eliminate all of them and start a whole new world for all the ninja. Obviously, Naruto would not allow that. The installment ended with both of them standing on the same place they had their first fight.

Now, with the teaser released for the next episode, it will certainly feature the final showdown between the two. Rumor has it that the upcoming installment will be the last one for the anime series. However, TV Tokyo clarified that the release of the episode is going to be delayed.

The speculation that Naruto Shippuden 476 is going to be the ending of the series might be true. But, it will not air this week. The TV network revealed that the release date of the episode is taking place in the last week of September.

Although it is still two weeks from now, there is really nothing to be worried about. Why? Because it is definitely worth the wait. TV Tokyo also announced that Episode 476 is going to last for an hour. It will feature the final battle of Naruto and Sasuke, and possibly the last scene in the manga series.

Contrary to the prediction that the installment is going to be the last, rumors have it that the series will go until Episode 500. A lot of fans think that the creators will have a lot of fillers including the inauguration of Hatake Kakashi as the sixth Hokage. However, this is just a fan-based theory so take it with a grain of salt.

As of now, what fans really want to see is the one-hour long fight between Naruto and Sasuke in Naruto Shippuden 476. The installment is expected to air on September 29, Thursday. Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
