Fillers are here for Naruto Shippuden! On the first day of November, we had a back-to-back, two episode special “hidden story” filler – Things You Can’t Get Back (Episode 286) and One Worth Betting On (Episode 287). On November 8th Kakashi takes on two of the 7 Swordsmen in Naruto Shippuden episode 288, “Danger: Jinpachi and Kushimaru!”

Then on November 22, to celebrate over 500 Naruto anime episodes, TV Tokyo has announced the beginning of a 6 episode filler arc – Chikara (which means Power). It features Kabuto as the main villain along with and a few characters brought back via Edo Tensei. Check out the almost minute and a half Naruto Shippuden Chikara special video preview below!

  • Ivan Nanita

    I really don’t care about fillers so much since i’m a manga reader but, Storm 3 is not going to feature a lot of things because of fillers. I prefer that Storm 3 gets delayed like 2 or 3 months so they can add more stuff since i believe they won’t make the new content DLC.

  • Sharingan_Nigga

     you know they going to come out with another naruto game, just milking the game that all.

  • jermar

    man at this rate i really wonder how many chapters we will cover in the anime by the time the game comes out.

  • IchigoUzumaki123

    Even though this is a filler, it looks pretty cool.

  • Dewayne Glass

    i think the story will follow the manga.

  • Frank Cerullo

    gotta atmit i like the look of the filler but still disappointed by this because storm 3 looks like its gonna end with naruto vs itachi :| if were lucky maybe MAYBE madara as teh final boss battle ( anruto clone vs madara)

  • David Han

    Would’ve been better if they made it a 600th episode celebration. Or better yet, if Chikara Force was the 7th Naruto movie.

  • joseVQZ

    This stupid fillers will be ruining the strory mode of Storm 3,by the way maybe will be a good filler and Damn what animation

  • Alex Marrero

    Storm 3 takes a blow through half of January. Ouch. And considering they rarely announce characters until they are featured in the anime, we may have an even longer information drought coming up.

  • Dakota Chelsea

    The animation this looks so different from the original animation like Kbuto looks totally different

  • RedDragon10

    I think I’ll pass.

  • deav0084

    Why is everybody only talking about the anime in terms of storm 3… didnt cc2 say they would keep true to the manga and that anime and MANGA fans would be satisfied no canon anime isnt gonna mes up production the slightest bit… cheer up people

  • KuroPansa

    I hope it won’t influence the normal episodes release in the usual time shift of the schedule, because I couldn’t stand 6 weeks of that filler, which obviously looks ridiculous.

  • Frank Cerullo

    that was the translator messing up what she told cc2 ceo guy was “will ther ebe filler from the anime in the game” when he answered tahst what he menat no “filler” stuff will be included not we mwill follow manga story line

  • Jazyl Homavazir

    I think the Animation looks fantastic & the recent fillers have been pretty good.

  • Vergil Uchiha

    wtf O_o whats with kabuto ? lol he looks different 

  • shafiq95

    wow ….they finally put some hardwork on those fucking fillers….im actually going to watch it 

  • braxton4715

    looks pretty interesting

  • Tobi

    Dafuq This look pretty nice i’ll watch it :3

  • Juan Welding Esquivel

    esto es una total tontería …que manera de festejar he:con un montón de episodios de relleno que niciquiera nos interesa,que no tiene nada que ver con la historia de naruto y que arruina naruto storm 3…yo diría que para festejar todo lo que queda de este año (que es poco,aparte por todo el relleno que han pasado durante el año y ha arruinado la serie) capítulos de naruto sin relleno y para la mitad del otro tan bien yo creo que eso si es festejar y en especial con los fans y por los fans eso seria una manera de festejar pero esto es….una completa idiotez.

  • narutopiece1

    o_O DAFAQ “I was going to write fillers are here yaaaaaaaaaaay (sarcasm)” now after i watched the preview; i am actually looking forward to this (BTW i heard this is only 6 episodes of fillers). YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

  • LeopoldHzilquihmbumn

    Holy sh*t, is that Hayate Gekko? :D

  • Hagareno

    So it’s essentially another naruto movie split up into episodes. 

  • treeko

    Thats it hopes dead for Storm 3 right about now.

  • shafiq95

    lol why is everyone blaming this filler for UNS3….that game has developed for 3 fucking years,they must have already plan the ending for the game…..besides this filler is actually looking great

  • Guest

    Too bad you’re wrong 

  • Brandon

    …Anyone else find it baffling that this filler arc looks better animated than ANY of the war arc episodes so far lol? I think they have their priorities mixed up. They should be less cheap about the canon material, and start making the war look as epic. They can skip this whole filler for all I care if the money were to go into the budget for fights next season. It would be worth the wait.

  • Guest

    I bet this is some kind of conspiracy, isn’t it kind of ironic that first CC2 said they’ll wait till the manga/anime ends, then all of sudden 4 months later after it’s release, CC2 said they already confirmed to make storm 3, then literally the next day or so kishimoto said he’ll extend his manga cause for some odd reason he said he needed to add more to it.. 

    which I find it kind of strange since he rushed most of the war, and even said before hand that he knew how the manga would end. but anyways when RTN preview ( voice actors ) was showing behind the scenes, it showed CC2 was somehow connected with the movie which of course is the first movie that kishi was actually behind the plot of the story. 

     then out of the blue these unnecessary fillers come into the war which is weird to me cause the war is far beyond the anime so theirs no worry of overlapping. So is it possible that maybe CC2, animators and even kishimoto made some secret deal to extend the manga and the fillers to make more storm games which also means kishimoto gets more profit since it’s under his name? 

     if you don’t believe that, then at least ask this question.. why did CC2 randomly change it’s mind about waiting till the anime ends for the full complete storm 3 and then when he finally confirmed the game, he never even told us WHY so early? remember when generations was made? everyone said that was to keep us entertained till storm 3, but then it was confirmed way to soon.. so what’s going on? - nah, I just made this theory up about them making a conspiracy, so PLEASE spare me the whole “kishimoto would never do that” or blah blah blah, I was just JOKING, thou everything about there connections is true. 

  • Alex Marrero

    It isn’t a conspiracy, it’s called “business.” Point, blank, period.

  • Alex Marrero


  • Alex Marrero

    Hopes dead? They haven’t skimped on characters yet (at least not recently). They already said more characters then Generations, which had 72. 

    So 42 from Storm 2 + Hiruzen, Zabuza, Haku, Kimimaro, Hanzo, Mifune, Darui = 49. 
    73 (minimum) – 48 = 24. 
    Leave a 5 character differential for mistakes/anyone I left out, we have at least 19-20 characters to be confirmed.

  • Alex Marrero

    Characters are not an issue as they’ve said there will be more then in Generations.

    42 (Storm 2) + Hiruzen, Zabuza, Haku, Kimimaro, Hanzo, Mifune, Darui = 49

    73 (minimum) – 49 = 24

    Assume I/they may have made a mistake, and we’re looking at at least 19-20 unconfirmed characters.


    I want to punch in Kabutos face so bad !! i hate him

  • *Super~Sayian*

    more like a “corrupted” business lol

  • braxton4715

    lol hes not that bad the person i would want to punch is danzo i hate his ass so much

  • *Super~Sayian*

    I want to punch obito 

  • JusticeManJoe

    i was just about to say that he looks a little off to me

  • JusticeManJoe

    Thank you im glad someone understands 

  • JusticeManJoe

    hes not wrong video games are planned and made way before the release by now Storm 3 is already done the stories done and everything they know what they are doing. The next few months till the games release is just polish and making the game look pretty and run smooth

  • MattUK92

    In-between Invasion of Pain Arc and Kage Summit Arc I’m guessing.
    Or in-between Hunt for Itachi Arc and Invasion of Pain Arc?

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    OH GOD, again with fillers O_O

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Me too, I prefer it that it gets release around October 15 2013, so they can add shit of load of EPIC stuffs XD

  • *Super~Sayian*

    are you going to watch the “death battle” between goku vs superman in a few days? I know you’re like a dbz fan, it’s on screw attack channel

  • Femi Adams

    Maybe they want to put the conclusion up as DLC like Asura’s Wrath (also made by CC2 for Capcom) had “The True Ending” to the story as paid DLC. Maybe Madara as a paid for only character they KNOW people will pay for those. Maybe they learn a few tricks from Capcom? Maybe that’s why Hiroshi Matsuyama-san always laughs when someone mentions Madara Uchiha or the ending of the game?

  • Zeke Asakura

    Death Battle? which youtube channel?

  • treeko

    Please don’t even mention Danzo’s name,oh the pain of that spammer from Naruto storm generations still lingers within me lol

  • saar azari

    your first option is correct since he revived itach and nagato with edo tensei

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I was going to watch it, but I kept forgetting, I will be sure to watch, thanks for the reminder ^_^

  • treeko

    To an extent I agree with you,but I don’t think they would need to do that to gain profit,I don’t remember ppl hating on cc2 when they were making Ultimate ninja games for ps2,the last 2 games only covered the starting 2 arcs of the shippuden story,but ppl didn’t complain,but now that they have gotten attention from Naruto fans around the globe mainly because of making the storm series multiplatform,I think they have become greedy because of this, similar case’s in the gaming industry are Call of duty,Battlefield,GTA etc the developers got Attention from people thus they became greedy and threw out whatever crap they could pack up in a silly excuse of a game,except for GTA lmao.

  • braxton4715

    lol that makes me hate him even more

  • Vergil Uchiha

    Haha! u sure ? i saw couple of pics about it in fb but i thought it was just a fanMade xD Man its Gonna Be Crazyy !!!

  • James Soldier


  • Mike Kersten

    Why the heck is this posted under Naruto Storm 3 news? -.-

  • blackblitz 2012

    to be fair the fillers are actually pretty decent again, so i guess it won’t be tht bad. of course i would much rather them carry on wit the actually story, but i guess they have to let the manga get ahead so they don’t catch up

  • ichigokun

    where does it say Naruto Storm 3?

  • unleashrage

    likewise and also i wouldn’t mind punching kiba or naruto.

  • Matsu96

    Kabuto looks creepy!! XD

  • treeko

    Anyone got advice on how beat up some deidara and onoki spammers,I know deidara is a good character when used properly but I mean those spammers who wont let you get near them,like when you chakra dash at them they’ll keep throwing his stupid birds or owls whatever they are,anyone got a counter for them?

  • KitahSenpai

     Kabuto can do edo tensei in the manga and anime before Naruto mastered the nine tails anyway… (When he shows ‘Tobi’ at the time the coffins).

  • Rafael Georgiou

    So this is actually 6 weeks fillers…?

  • thecrows2332

    Deidara VS Sai. Two different type of artist battling it out. I always wanted to see this:) Plus Yamoto is back for this! It may be a filler arc but im pretty excited about it.

  • Ken Smith

    That barely looks like kabuto xD

  • Ken Smith

    Omg at 0:56 that’s
    Hayate Gekkō From part 1 of naruto the chunin exam proctor.

  • timanel1

    put the fillers up on your asses and see if you like that as much as we like your fuking stupid fillers 

  • sarusarunomi

     I’ll check it out if it’s just like a short tv movie sort of thing ya know~
    Looks good, the story will most likely be cheesy as hell, but for the action, I’ll check it out!

  • dikkesjonnie

    Deidara: Chakra dash his ass of and shurikens so that you milk his subs, also Pain is always good support and distance characters example: Suigetsu, Deidara himself,little1010 and Tobi is helpful, Kakashi(kamui) and sasuke’s (susano),Guy, ultimate’s are very good to punish his birds and shit.
     Trolonoki: Make sure you attack him when he over used his jutsu and has no chakra(find your own way to do that it’ll make you stronger) also hidan is very useful to keep him busy or milk subs… I find myself mostly very easy to defeat deidara but ohnoki always makes a challange if he spams his jutsu.. never give em time to reload chakra, Kiba would be good to keep the pressure, chakra dash cancle the dog hits most of the time then Fang over fang his combo’s are very fast and you can always do the jutsu spam now and then..Ofcourse you can go spam yourself like lil1010,maskedman and so on.. but thats very easy solution… accept the challenge and fight with all you got.PS: ninja move… must do ninja moves man..Hope i helped you enough.

  • Wendell Johnson

    animation looks great…now i just wanna say i dont care about fillers.they dont get me mad at all but when it messes with storm games thats when i get concerned. but in london a fan asked will the chikara filler mess with the games matsuyama said no.matsuyama said the 6 episode filler will not effect the game because not only is the game covering the anime but will stay fateful to the manga.other than that lets see how many crybabies cry over the filler XD dont watch it if you dont want to just know that there will be no canon until january lol.oh another thing i’d advise you guys not to put logic into this filler because it FILLER it doesnt matter how much it doesnt make sense its still episodes that have nothing to do with the story….

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    That is Kabuto when he absorb half the power or Orochimaru XD

  • timanel1

    ofc it doesnt affect the game, the game is already decided to where will end. i bet it will end in madara first appearance , what it sucks when we have such a cool battles before that :

  • narutopiece1

    Tragic story: on the 1st of november, daily mail reported, a boy who leaped from apartment block after seeing his favourite Japanese cartoon character die. Guess which character it was?

  • treeko

    Thanks gonna try this out on very well known spammers.

  • tha bask

    Kabuto looks like Michael Jackson in 0:35 lmao

  • jason bradley

    animation looks really impressive but why does kabuto not have his snake skin is this a different kabuto

  • SuperdeadlyKing

    wow is this true? sad =(

  • Jacob ProudMoore

    Asuma or Jiraya

  • narutopiece1

    yeah the boy was Russian and he posted a message on a social networking site saying he was also ‘planning an ending’ two days before they found his body :(

  • Jacob ProudMoore

    Yah its itachi thats sad. It ant naruto fault tho

  • SuperdeadlyKing

    woah =O

  • KonohamaruHeaven Sarutobi

    that filler budget

  • IchigoUzumaki123

    Idk dude, CC2s best choice would be to follow the manga.

  • Jay Brown

    This takes place before the war arc that much I can tell. If you look closely you can see Naruto’s eyes turning read which means he doesn’t have KCM yet.

  • Wendell Johnson

    yea your right

  • Wendell Johnson

    yea…people have alraedy come to terms with the 3 possible endings of the game
    1.sasuke and itachi vs kabuto
    2.naruto vs obito+jinchuuriki
    3.madara vs 5 kages
    either one of these endings will be fine with me

  • Jay Brown

    I personally can’t wait to play as edo nagato. Chibaku Tensi for his ultimate please!

  • Rayshawn92

    OMG! :O

  • *Super~Sayian*

    screw attack is what the channel is called, the video isn’t out yet, but basically what it is, is that they choose certain characters from anime, cartoons and games and they have them fight each other, and usually they’ll use famous known character debates to fight each other such as sonic vs mario. you should check out all their death battles, especially the spiderman vs batman, but if you wanna see the trailer for goku vs superman, you got watch ending of the pickachu vs blanka fight which is there recent one. 

  • David Breimann

    edo nagato better not be anorexic starting off, please cc2 just use healthy nagato
    and awake could be the one pain had in impact 

  • Salvador

    Dat Animation:D

  • Salvador

     his is like between the sai and sasuke arc.

  • p.i.m.p.player47

    This looks pretty cool.

  • AldouphusWilliams

    this filler arc looks better than fights in the war, nice
    wasnt expecting this much action in a filler lol

  • Al D.

    They’re using the smooth animation style… :) I might just have to watch this filler for its animation.

  • John Louis Morley

    why does kabuto look like a chick?

  • Alex Marrero

    Sad, but he obviously must have had other issues. Still, never enjoy hearing things like this. I imagine the kinda pain he must have been in.

  • Alex Marrero

    Because he’s Orochimaru’s b@#$%

  • JustSomeGuy101

    nah man I would rather have it the other way round, ya know like unheathly grey hair nagato as the character and then healthy red haired nagato as the awakneing. I think he looks pretty cool when his all skinny and old it suits him. just my opinon though :)

  • Vergil Uchiha

    ahaha! Truee Datt

  • Tyler Casilio

    Its basically a movie cut up, just Kabuto looks odd. otherwise kinda awesome 

  • RedDragon10

    If Goku loses I’m gonna be pissed. 

  • Rafael Georgiou

    guys is it confirmed if all the episodes will be aired in 1 day or this filler will take 6 weeks?Please if someone knows tell me

  • Alex Marrero

    Most likely 6 weeks.

  • Rafael Georgiou

    I was afraid of this but thanks anyway

  • Alex Marrero

    I would punch Masked Man if his jutsu cool down allowed you to. -_-

  • Cameron lee

    Justicemanhoe :P

  • Jevonte Marquis Gore

    I hope this is short cuz CC2 needs the original anime storyline for Storm 3.

  • RedDragon10

    6 episodes equals 6 weeks equals a month and a half…

  • A.Z.

    Looking forward to this! :]

  • Érico Silva

    That “Smooth animation style” Ruined one of the best arcs on Naruto, ( Naruto 4, 6 tails vs Pain ) , so i’m a little bit worried, gonna watch it because there’s kabuto and he’s my favorite character in the series.

  • Érico Silva


  • fabricej

    WHY ? Just do the main storyline, nobody cares about these damn fillers. 

  • Praowploy Charoenraj

    Since like, before the Suna invasion…(when 3rd died) -.-

  • Freesun4

    How much you wanna bet that the animation will look worse that the one from the trailer?

  • Joshua

    Wanna celebrate the true spirit of Naruto, lets use totally unrelated filler :/

  • Bryan Cortes McQueen


  • Nicholas Bloom

    im actually very excited for this short filler arc

  • Nicholas Bloom

    that animatation style is not the same compared to this new filler arc in fact the new animation style is better then how they animated hinata’s confession

  • MuffinVonCupcake1

    I normally dislike fillers ever since the whole part 1 never ending fillers thing before shippuden, but this actually looks really sweet! The only thing that’s confusing me is the way Kabuto looks. And he normally never uses jutsu like that. Please don’t tell me they’re doing more Road To Ninja stuff? He seems like and alternate reality Kabuto. And did Nagato’s hair seem longer to anyone else? Ok, I’ll stop talking now.

  • byron123

    The reason for which Kabuto looks like that is because he has started to transform to what Orochimaru is like with the only difference that he hasn’t transformed completely yet.

  • MuffinVonCupcake1

    No, but wouldn’t he still have the marks on his face that he had when he met Naruto and Yamato when they were looking for Itachi? That kinda crap doesn’t just go away. I wonder if Kabuto maybe pulled a Mu and that Kabuto is only half of him? O.O Conspiraciessss!

  • byron123

    Well if you watched the episode now you’ll see that his face is slighty different.

  • MuffinVonCupcake1

    Yea, I saw it, and I realized I was wrong. It had the cracks and everything. I also realized Kabuto’s hair seems to be covering his affected eye. But jesus this is a good filler arc. Not even Guren was this awesome for me!

  • Fernando Benítez

    It is an alternate universe. It says so in the trailer ¬¬

  • byron123

    Lol this isn’t an alternative universe! Are you on crack or what? This filler takes place after Kabuto starts to become like Orochimaru and it’s after Nagato’s death. I don’t get how you came to the coclusion that it’s an alternative universe at the first place.

  • byron123

    Yeah indeed it’s very good and it actually has a purpose because it shows how Kabuto became so strong and shows us the process he had to go through to become like that.

  • Kimi Twigles

    cant wait for the next episode to be out! 

  • Mike Kersten

    they changed it.
