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!
