Warning: Major manga spoilers ahead
After a February full of Nine-Tailed fighting, exciting history telling, and Kisame-Guy action, the scene in Naruto Shuppuden changes, as least initially, from our hero Naruto to the Hidden Rain Village where a new battle is brewing. Check out the episode the air dates, episode titles, and Saiyan Island’s predictions as to what this month holds!
- March 01, 2012
Naruto Shippuden Episode 252 – The Angelic Herald of Death
As shown in the preview at the end of episode 251, the battle between Masked Madara and Konan will begin. We’ll see some flashbacks of Nagato and Yahiko and predict their goals for peace will help motivate Konan to use all she’s got to defeat Masked Madara.
- March 08, 2012
Naruto Shippuden Episode 253 -The Bridge to Peace
We predict the battle will continue in this episode. There will be an exciting new jutsu by Konan, but with the power of Izanagi, Masked Madara will come out on top and defeat Konan. We expect many flashbacks of Konan, Nagato, and Yahiko’s childhood.

Naruto Shippuden Episode 254 – Top Secret Super S Rank Mission
We predict in this episode Masked Madara, now with the Rinnegan, will reset his focus into capturing Naruto. Back on the Island, we predict a few somewhat humorous scenes with Guy and talk about the Island’s history. In addition to distracting Naruto to keep him safe, it’s likely there will be some talk on the war as well.

Naruto Shippuden Episode 255 – The Artist Returns
We predict this episode will feature the return of Deidara through Kabuto’s Edo Tensei. With Kabuto in control, him and Deidara will probably fight the Tsuchikage and his team. We predict Yamato will join the fight, but will end up getting captured.
- March 29, 2012
Naruto Shippuden Episode 256 – Amass! Shinobi Allied Forces
We predict this episode will feature Naruto training for Nine Tailed Beast Chakra Mode. Elsewhere, we predict Kabuto and Masked Madara will get ready for the way by getting Zetsu ready and calling upon a few summons via Edo Tensei. We also believe Five Kage make their final preparations, tactfully diving up ninja into different teams, before heading out to war.
So in summary, we believe the five Naruto Shippuden episodes in March will cover Naruto Manga chapters 508-516. The dates above are all actual, but the titles are translations and may change once they are officially released by Viz Media. 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!
