The Jump Super Anime Tour is returning for the first time in over two years! In the latest issue of Shonen Jump, Shueisha is announcing a brand new Naruto Shippuden anime special this fall. This won’t be a TV special, it will be an exclusive original part of the upcoming Jump Super Anime Tour 2013 event. The magazine teases the special will feature the “unbelievable appearance of a certain popular character.”

The parent company of Shonen Jump, Shueisha, generally brings festivities to different areas of Japan as part of the tour, focusing on it’s anime/manga properties. This year they will travel to five cities throughout Japan from October 6 to November 24.

Previous specials created for the event include “Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return” and “Naruto: The Cross Roads”, both of which eventually made it online English subbed.

No additional information has been revealed about the new Naruto Shippuden anime special, but we’ll keep you updated right here on Saiyan Island!

Thanks ANN

  • Rightful King


  • Narutofreak1412

    I think it will be Jiraiya, Sasuke, Minato or Itachi

  • Narutofreak1412

    or they are trolling and mean Naruto xD

  • H3LLRav3n

    Pretty sure it’s Goku. Can’t really think of anyone else “unbelievably popular.”

  • YES! o/

    Rikudō Sennin, perhaps?

  • Kc12344321

    I’d enjoy that

  • FlyingThunderGod

    lets see if it’s really an unbelievable character

  • Guest

    My bet’s on Itachi or Sasuke.

  • Chris Bosh

    My bet is on Rock Lee

  • *Super~Sayian*

    well hopefully this time they dont nerf the living snot out of goku.

  • Omojuze-san

    Well a popular character, hmmm that character shoud be strong, hey I know – Sakumo Hatake!! Would love to see him in action, since his power is said to rival that of the sannin, or even Shisui Uchiha, since we didn’t see him in action and he is said to be really strong. I know what’re u going to say, their dead, but hey, if Kabuto’s not defeated until fall, there is a chance we might see one of them:)

  • joshua slack


  • RedDragon10

    It’s obviously going to be a character not from the naruto series. How could Rock Lee or Sasuke”guest star” on a naruto special? My bet’s either on Goku, Luffy, or Toriko.

  • Nigel Davis

    Minato. I bet it will be a father/son ordeal. Just my guess.
    The Crossroads was actually awesome. I wonder if this one will be in full 3D, too?

  • John Ramirez

    Sweet. Another OVA.

  • Alair D.

    Oh, great… More animation wasted on non-canon.

  • Jorobo

    Oh great more complainers. if you are tired of the non-canon or anything based on the animation or show, don’t watch, it’s just that simple.

  • Rightful King

    Yeah, seriously, I can’t understand why people would even think at all it’ll be a naruto character

  • Tyler Casilio

    Naruto and Obito team up? Oooooooooh that would be cool yet make no sense like most of these things

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    I bet the special character will be Minato.

  • John

    Is Naruto trying to be like Dragon Ball Z or something?

  • Philip Huertas

    Both of your comments are true ._. regardless it does get really tiring hearing people b**ch about non-canon episodes ._.

  • PooPooGod

    Guys, its gonna be Naruto.

  • Shippudencave


  • Hinata47D

    that would be epic, sadly though it’s most likely going to be sasuke ;( ……… heart would stop if it was the sage of the six paths heheheh

  • John

    I thought it was having another anime like GT or something jezz calm down.

  • Elsepa

    Hashirama and Madara full fight? Tobirama’s death? that would be cool

  • MadaraBeatsTheAvengersOneByOne

    Do you read the manga?

  • Final

    This is good news I heard from a Naruto page I guess. At least it not about CC2.

  • MadaraBeatsTheAvengersOneByOne

    I think it would be someone staring with letter M

  • Vallen

    Its weird, but I’m more excited for the 2ns season of kuroko no basket from this scan haha

  • John

    Yeah I know.

  • Shippudencave

    oh…but naruto already has another anime, and even if it did have a third series it still wouldn’t be copying

  • John

    Ok whatever maybe for you but not everyone now can you like drop it.



  • sigma2503

    really plz shut up wasting animation is worst then saying wasting internet you are literally just trying to find things that come from your as to complain about and just to be clear i hate shippuden after naruto becomes one of the strongest ninjas in his world but i will never complain about absolute nothing.

  • sigma2503

    lol it would be funny if they put the edo kages in this

  • Vincent Duong

    It’s Bilbo Baggins

  • Gohan7861000

    Luffy isn’t unbelievably popular. I’d go with goku on this, but it could just be uchiha madara or rikudo

  • ShisuiUchiha88

    I was thinking that they will release a 1 hour episode or something to make it up to us… what a fail.

  • Keon

    If the second series is crap then I shudder to think about the third.

  • Jalen Hallman

    ichigo its fr

  • Jalen Hallman

    its from studio perriot its ichigo

  • Alex Sam Anif

    So, this pretty much confirms that we’ll be getting more fillers in October. Great…

  • RedDragon10

    Luffy’s not popular? You want to bet on that fact?

  • thecrows2332

    So are going to see it? Or is it only for the tour?

  • Alex Sam Anif

    If they start making canon episodes on a regular basis (and let’s hope they do. it’s been 5 months already!) then Kabuto shouldn’t make it past September at the most

  • Hinata47D

    it’s not filler because it isn’t a episode, it’s kid of like a mini movie

  • Hinata47D


  • Mavrick

    You are a new kind of dumb, have you NOT heard of an OVA?

  • narutopiece1

    I agree with you, I think i will be either the characters you mentioned. I am leaning more toward Goku as to being the guest character because of DB series being an inspiration to most of authors in japan.

  • xXVergiliusXx

    It will be Goku ;3

  • denn

    i hope it’s kenshin :)

  • NarutoForever


    Oh, Special “does not count, non-canon waste of thousands of resources for crap” nonsense. Oh, how this world cracks me up. How about using those same funds for some decent animation on CANON MATERIAL?

    This f!@#$^& world…

  • Vinicius OPN

    no, he said that they will do the special because fillers might come back…

  • Quiet Bozo


  • Paul Waaben Ammentorp

    Dude i think you got it wrong. Luffy is pretty much poplar, since the One Piece manga has been claimed the best in Japan by teens

  • Gohan7861000

    Luffy is popular in Japan, I was talking about worldwide. Goku or naruto owns the anime world

  • Gohan7861000

    Yea sure I can go ask anyone if they know luffy, I actually did and they say “is it a food”. Pretty much everyone knows naruto or goku. You said the wrong words, you should have said everyone in JAPAN knows luffy, worldwide its either goku or naruto

  • Gohan7861000

    I don’t care if its non canon, I just want It funny

  • romo vincent

    ot really doesnt matter

  • Sam Angelus

    It will be Mario from his latest oneshot manga.


    itll be me up there on the silver screen… no itll be madara

  • Subhan Shahid

    i hope its goku cause that would be f***** epic……….

  • Danny Stewart


    Make it happen

  • UchihaName

    Ahh, i love this anime!

  • UchihaName

    Lol from Lord of the Rings.

  • FireNFlames

    Lol, they will keep crying and forever will stay crying because they have nothing else to do. Just like with CC2, everyone cried about missing characters and STILL are. Lol, just get over it yall, you cant always get what you want.

  • Chōmei

    FINALLY! Madara has appeared.

  • RedDragon10

    No, we’re not talking worldwide. Do you think the special is airing worldwide or just in Japan? You asking a bunch of your friends is just a confirmation bias. I didn’t say the “wrong words” because we are referring to the special that airs in JAPAN.

  • byron123

    So how exactly will it work? Will it take time from the original anime’s schedule or will it be like a bonus?

  • MrZe1598

    yeah this year 5 months of filler were already wasted

  • MrZe1598


  • byron123

    Well I can’t say I hated them all. I did like chikara arc and 2 or 3 others but apart from that I’m happy that we will finally watch canon again. And so when they say a special anime how they mean it? How many episodes it usually has? Do they use good animation and lastly is it as an extra arc of something, or just random episodes?

  • byron123

    also just because you didn’t really clarify it, it is a bonus right? It won’t take any time from the actual thing.

  • jimmimcb

    its like an ova not a movie not an episode

  • byron123

    ah ok thanks for clearing this up.

  • Jevonte Marquis Gore

    I still wanna see the Naruto Crossroads special in english.

  • Faiz Ali

    i want itc to be goku,first ever anime vid crossover of these animes

  • Faiz Ali

    take that picure off. i looked at it and u set a damn tsukuyomi on me.i was stuck to a goddamn pole for 3 days.plz i know your strong but just ont hurt innocent people like me

  • Faiz Ali

    lolololololololol its matsuyama.rage when u watch it

  • BrainYZ

    it’s hard because it’s studio perriot.
    I know it’s not a tv special but there was an old (VERY old) non-tv specials and it included DBZ with OP (and Kochikame) without included Naruto or Bleach.

  • Faiz Ali

    they could use this time and money to make the best animation possible for madara.but if its goku…….theres an exception

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    This episode was terrible: pointless and beyond stupid dialogues and scenes like: “Oh, look! It’s Naruto! He can make clone Jutsu!” Thx, I didn’t fcking knew that, or Guy to Lee: “Look out for these fireballs, they can hurt you!” No shiet, Sherlock!!! It’s like they’re making EVERYTHING to overextend the series, so they can milk it to the maximum!!!!! And look at the animations; they’re terrible!!!! They all move in slowmotion while fighting and framerate is like 10/sec! Also, did you know that Naruto is master of jumping? He jumped from the tree, started conversation with some1, end it and jumped 2nd time!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!! He can fcking jump for 100m lenght and keep in air for like 20secs!!!! Studio Pierrot needs a cookie for that,seriously! I’d even put it personally in their asses!!!!!

  • Jabar Mason

    seriously you guys theres alos this new naruto movie i have an idea please release your info about all this new stuff already i cant wait

  • UchihaName

    Sorry. No can do :P INFINITE TSUKUYOMI!!

  • Ekush

    I can’t say I was fully satisfied but, as NaruHina fan, I really loved that Naruto Hinata moment…

  • JaVonn Thomas

    Technically GT isn’t part of the story… Not siding with John, just wanted to point that out

  • Konohagakure

    I heard the naruto shippuden movie 7 will be released next year and i think april or may i think

  • Jabar Mason

    yeah but the least they could do is release a trailer, title, plot, or something lol

  • Jorobo

    can you not

  • Konohagakure

    If studio pierrot have not shown narutos kurama mode before this movie i hope at least to show kurama mode in this movie

  • Jabar Mason

    i think that if its coming in 2014 than it has something to do with after shippuden like when naruto is hokage

  • Konohagakure

    If there is a part 3 of the naruto anime i wonder what is the title

  • Jabar Mason

    for me it would be naruto teisan

  • Konohagakure

    Which means…………..?

  • Jabar Mason

    no idea but it sounds cool lol

  • UchihaName

    Calm down

  • Konohagakure


  • Konohagakure

    Well i dont know if you complained about fillers for the past five months but now a lot of people have long waited for this even you waited for this episode but now youre complaining about it.its better than having five months of fillers. And the next episode will have good animation so dont worry

  • Faiz Ali

    aaaaahhhhhhh my eyes.thats it im going to get my own sharingan from obito.ill trade.rinn back to life and ill take both of his eyes and see how U like it.*tears* *sobs* my eyes

  • Gohan7861000

    Well nobody said Japan. Anyways that would mean that you said the wrong words, but that’s not the point I talk to people who are not my friends for this information. If I talked to my friends then 100 would say they know naruto and Dbz, but the other 100 are not anime fans, but they have seen Dbz. I ask purely random people if they know luffy, they say no.

  • AiHina

    teisan; short for teisansonoushou: which is brain damage from lack of oxygen. Seems you’ve chosen appropriately…

  • Kirk Phillips

    dude… naruhina forever

  • RedDragon10

    You went up to random people and asked them if they know who luffy is? I highly doubt this fact. In fact I doubt everything you’re saying at this point. You’re saying I said the wrong words, but it was always implied that I was speaking about Japan b/c the special is 1.) airing in Japan only and 2.) b/c Luffy is obviously incredibly popular there (and worldwide as well. I’m guessing your from the states or another isolated country). I don’t know what you mean by saying the “wrong words” but his popularity alone in Japan can be considered on a global scale.

  • Philip Huertas

    True true ._. but some immature people always want to get what they want eventually it’ll happen then again I keep forgetting people don’t have the kind of mature patience I do meh oh well

  • Gohan7861000

    Luffys popularity isn’t considered in a global scale cause hardly anyone knows who luffy is. He is famous only in Japan, while naruto is 2nd famous, but is considered the new goku worldwide. Pft no, that is stupid, I get to know them first and then see if we have anything in common. A survey more or less. Me asking random people is just me introducing myself that’s all.

  • Gohan7861000

    Wrong words as in you should have said Japan in the first time. Could have made me less confused. Lol my identity is a mystery in itself.

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    Yup, but its been done before in two Naruto movies and in a special which was basicly Naruto Olympics. So I can see it happening again.

  • disqus_Xyg30uQOLW

    unbelievable appearance of a certain popular character. who o who could it be

  • Lifestreamer

    The bullshit is strong in this one…
    Kid, One Piece is very known worldwide, a lot of people knows Luffy and One Piece in Europe (France and Germany mainly), Asia (all over the place, mainly in Japan, duh, and China the largest and most populous country in the world, is also important to note, Asians are much more in tune with the anime culture than United States and America in general) and America (in Brazil, the fifth largest country in the world, anime is very popular, and the One Piece manga is one of the best sellers there, hell, even in United States the strawhat crew has a very good fanbase, the fact that Naruto in more popular there doesn’t reduce the popurality of One Piece to zero, wtf!? Luffy is so unbeliavable popular that even you do not believe, lol.
    Also, asking in your neighborhood or your friends doesn’t prove nothing, if this reasoning is true so in my country (When it comes to Naruto) it’s something like:
    1 – People Ignorant about anime: Naruto? I don’t know what it is but it sounds disappointing..
    2 – People familiar with anime: Naruto? The mediocre series series about ninjas? I know but there are much beter things out there.

    Where I live, more than popular Naruto is infamous, and this still proves nothing, quit the Narutard act, and move on with the fact that One Piece IS extremely popular.

  • Rafael Georgiou

    Guys this special anime in fall will take place in the hours of the normal episodes or the manga story will continue regardless that specail event?

  • Bılly Bauer

    yes One Piece is popular but still there are more popular animes worldwide like Dbz and Naruto . I think he wanted to say that..

  • Bılly Bauer

    if he is from other series it is probably Ichigo. maybe Studio Pierrot going to promote J-Stars Victory VS with this special..

  • RedDragon10

    Buddy, just because your friends never heard of one piece doesn’t mean it’s not famous worldwide. Most of Europe, all of Asia, some of North America, and the a good portion of Latin America all know of One Piece. Stop arguing a futile cause. I don’t have to mention Japan to prove a point. Ain’t that right, Mr. UchichaLord?

  • jasmineHyuuga

    I wonder who this popular character could be. I have a small hunch who it could be but I’m not going to say.

  • jasmineHyuuga

    Damn Chill Bro

  • Lifestreamer

    UchihaLord!? Hahaha, now everything makes sense…

  • RedDragon10

    I’m pretty sure it’s him. Notice the original comments made by this gohan fellow and how uchihalord always liked the comment as they appeared. They’re most likely the same person.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    Just saying truth.

  • narutonatsu

    ichigo wont fit in man, goku will be awesome.

  • narutonatsu

    man naruto, goku, luffy, ichigo their all damn popular and own the world ight. …. maybe even natsu (he’s rising man) ….. like ur not making sense dbz and naruto arent the only awesome anime out there.

  • Gabriel Garcia

    I hope it is either Luffy or Goku.

  • Larry E. Powe Jr.

    OH YEAH!!

  • Larry E. Powe Jr.


  • jasmineHyuuga

    I hope it’s Goku.

  • GrammarNazi

    I hope it’s Sakura.

  • Tasha Kate Wood

    It’s Itachi. They just announced it today.

  • SyncG4x

    Goku or Luffy! All the way, Natsu’s not worth it! But if anyone, the king of Anime; Goku-San!
