Naruto Shippuden will be ending its fillers about Naruto The Hero next week, but it will not be returning to the fourth ninja war, where Naruto, Sasuke, and the whole ninja world face the legend Madara. Instead, it will present another arc about Uchiha Itachi. Check out the new images for the upcoming series of filler.
In the image presented, Shisui was the one blowing fire from his mouth while sparring with the young Itachi. The former will also be a main character in the upcoming arc, but the storyline of the upcoming series is still unknown.
The photo of Itachi in his anbu gear would somehow give a hint about the upcoming arc. It is safe to assume that the filler would run through the life of the ninja before he massacred the Uchiha clan but still, it is unclear how much of Itachi?s life will be tackled.
Despite not returning to the Fourth Shinobi World War, fans would definitely still be excited about the arc because its main protagonist, Uchiha Itachi, is one of the most loved and respected characters in the series, alongside main hero Naruto and Uchiha Sasuke.
In other news, aside from the upcoming arc titled Naruto Shippuden: The True Legend of Itachi, it was also reported that there will be a new manga series about Boruto, son of the seventh hokage Uzumaki Naruto. Clearly, the story will be about the son of Naruto and it will be named after Boruto himself.
The new manga will premiere this spring in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. It will have a monthly release, unlike the former schedule of Naruto which was every week. Now for the storyline, with Naruto being the Hokage already, it is definitely after the Fourth Ninja War. Another thing that the fans should keep in mind is that the ninja world is already at peace so there will be quite a difference in the plot of the story.
Going back to Naruto Shippuden: The True Legend Of Itachi, it will be starting on March 3 and is reported to be a 9-episode series.
