Warning: Major manga spoilers ahead
September’s schedule in the world of Naruto Shippuden was full of fillers, but in October 2012 we get right back on track with the ever exciting story-following canon episodes! At least in the first two weeks, which have titles that match what we expect to see in the manga! As the preview for Naruto Shippuden 282 shows, Naruto and Killer Bee’s confrontation with Tsunade and the Raikage and give a history between the Raikage and Bee’s relationship. Saiyan Island expects the confrontation and history to continue, but conclude in episode 283. As for episodes 283 and 284, we predict this to be filler episodes that cover two of the Edo Tensei reincarnations – Jinin Akebino (one of the 7 Swordsman) and Pakura (former Hidden Sand Village ninja).

So in summary, there will be 4 episodes of Naruto Shippuden episodes in October, two of which will be canon and two of which will be filler. Saiyan Island’s prediction is the two canon episodes will cover four chapters of the Naruto manga, 541 to 544. If true, the Naruto manga will be over 60 chapters ahead of the anime at the end of October.
As always, keep in mind, the dates above are all actual and only subject to the programmers change, but the titles are translations and may differ 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!
