I’m going to be discussing the future of the Naruto series now that Episode 479 has showcased what Chapter 699 of the manga was; with only Chapter 700 remaining what can we expect in the future you may ask, well I’m here to tell you!
So after this Episode as well as the “boyhood filler arc” from Studio Pierriot, the episodes will be:
- Naruto and Hinata
- Sasuke and Sakura
- Gaara and Shikamaru
- Kakashi and Jiraiya
After those episodes, Shippuden will enter a series of animating the Light novels/Naruto Hiden books that take place between Chapter 699 and 700. In other words, it will showcase the stories during the time skip as it is happening over time. Afterwards we will more than likely reach Chapter 700 and have the TRUE Finale of Naruto when he becomes Hokage. After that Episode airs, we will finally be entering the Boruto era of things and of course if you’re familiar with the timeline of events, Naruto Gaiden takes place before Boruto : Naruto the Movie.
Naruto Gaiden Anime
With Naruto Gaiden we can expect all 10 chapters to be animated and of course, include more detail to fill up Episode time. However, it isn’t said exactly when this schedule will take place or what order it will be in. Studio Pierriot is always back and forth with TV Tokyo so its just a matter of them slowly releasing information before we get confirmation for Naruto Gaiden. With that being said we can hope for it next year 2017 and look out for more news regarding the Naruto Anime. it will really depend on how long they animate each novel for since there are many of them.
So in end thanks for reading and we appreciate your support as always!
