Warning: Major Manga Spoilers Ahead
Since February of this year, Naruto Shippuden has been on a great run of showing episodes that follow Masashi Kishimoto’s superb Naruto manga. The Naruto Shippuden June 2011 June shows the series will continue on in the same exciting fashion as months past, maybe even more, as fans can rejoice with the long awaited reunion of rivals! Check out the episode titles, air dates, and our predictions below for this exciting month.
Episode #214: The Burden I Should Bear – June 02, 2011
Now that Sakura has found Sasuke, we predict they will have a little chat, with Sakura trying to deceive Sasuke. However, as the episode 214 previews in episode 213 showed, Sasuke is no fool and will see through Sakura’s tricks! Sasuke will attempt to kill Sakura, but Kakashi will jump in for the save and battle Sasuke because the burden isn’t just Sakura’s to bare! Flashbacks to be included in this episode, for sure.
Episode #215: The Fated Two – June 09, 2011
We predict this episode will also have a few flashbacks as Kakashi continues his battle and Naruto continues to head toward Sasuke. It’s likely the end of this episode will feature Sasuke trying to kill Sakura again and our hero Naruto finally arriving to the scene to save his dream girl and confront his rival in the long awaited Team 7 reunion!
Episode #216: Top Class Shinobi – June 16, 2011
Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke, and Kakashi together once again! It’s the complete Team 7 reunion we’ve waited since Sasuke left the village around 328 episodes ago (fillers included)! We predict this episode will feature Naruto sharing his feelings with Sasuke, telling him how he understands him through the only way the two rivals can – a clash of RASENGAN AND CHIDORI!
Episode #217: Infiltrator – June 23, 2011
We predict this episode will feature the conclusion of the Team 7 reunion. Zetsu and Madara will appear and take Sasuke away to recover from his injuries as Sasuke desires to prepare for the ultimate showdown with Naruto in the future.
Episode #218: Nations on the Move – June 30, 2011
This episode will most likely be a wrap up of the Kage Arc. We predict appearances by the country lords (the daimyos) and Naruto, Sakura, and Kakashi picking up Lee, Sai, Kiba, and Akamaru (who Sakura gave sleep powder to a few episodes ago). It’s likely the Hidden Leaf council will be close to declaring 6th Hokage as Kakashi Hatake, but not won’t quite get their because Tsunade will wake up!
So in summary, the next five episodes of Naruto Shippuden based just on the titles, seem as if they will cover Naruto Manga chapters 483-488. The dates above are all actual, but the titles are translations and may change once they are officially released on Hulu or Crunchyroll. It’s a good chance though that the titles will be similar. As for our predictions, they are just that, and may not be what’s in the episodes. We’re only making an educated guess based on our experience reading the great manga known as NARUTO and of course hope episode 218 is not actually a filler!
