Naruto Shippuden 489 is airing in a week?s time, but reports are already confirming that a new arc is kicking off the series. As fans of the anime series wait for the new arc to officially start, let us quickly discuss what will happen in the upcoming episode 488.
According to reports, the installment airing this week will conclude the journey of Sasuke outside Konoha. The episode features the much-anticipated fight between Sasuke and Chino. Viewers were expecting it?to take place in the 487th installment, but it did not happen then. So, there are speculations that it will finally transpire in the next episode.
Should that be the case, viewers should expect an action-packed installment with Sasuke using his full abilities against a ninja known for her Ketsuryugan. Rumor also has it that the battle is going to kill Chino and her partner Nowaki. But, some theories suggest that the fight will end peacefully.
Whether or not Chino and Nowaki die in 488, Naruto Shippuden 489 will still signify the start of a new arc. Publication University Herald mentioned that the new story arc will feature Sasuke?s daughter Sarada.
The young ninja has already appeared in the film Boruto: Naruto The Movie as a teammate of Boruto and Mitsuki. She is as well a part of Boruto: Naruto Next Generation. She is a fine young lady that has lots of potentials within her. The upcoming arc is expected to showcase her skills and abilities that are way superior than others in her generation.
Being the first born child of Sasuke and Sakura, Sarada should be really powerful. Boruto, son of Naruto and Hinata, has already shown how strong he is in the film. Sarada, on the other hand, only had a minor role in the movie. So this time, it is her turn to reveal her true abilities.
Episode 488 will air on January 5, Thursday. Meanwhile,?Naruto Shippuden 489 will hit the small screens on January 12. Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
