Naruto Shippuden is the second series of Naruto anime that follows the titular hero on his quest to become Hokage. Unlike the first series, Naruto is now older and has new teachers to help him through his adventure. At the same time, he faces the biggest threats to the five shinobi nations and must deal with the loss of someone he considers a brother.
While the original series was filled with serious issues, Shippuden dialed everything up a notch, thrusting Naruto into a world of war, death, and betrayal. He’s not a kid anymore and the gloves have come off.
Shippuden is finally coming to an end though, and with all of the story threads getting tied up, it can be a lot to take in. The anime and manga throw a lot at fans in order to explain the events at hand. For new fans, and those who may not remember everything from hundreds of episodes ago, we put together a simple explanation of everything that you need to know in order to understand what’s happening.
Naturally, there’s a lot of information that can come out of such a long series. With that being said, we’ll focus on the most pertinent bits to provide you a better understanding of the overall picture.
