Kakashi: Shadow of the ANBU Black Ops Drawings and Pictures

February 6, 2014 marks the start of the Naruto Shippuden ANBU Kakashi Special arc, Kakashi: Shadow of the ANBU Black Ops. As the title suggests, it focuses on Kakashi and his time as part of the ANBU Black Ops. This past weekend at the 2014 Jump Festa, there was a video, drawings and others forms of pictures on display. You can take a look at the images below. As for the video, it’ll likely be released by an official channel such as Studio Pierrot (Naruto’s animation company) or Viz Media (Naruto’s North American licensor) in the near future. We’ll be sure to have it for you on Saiyan Island when it becomes available. For now, enjoy three stills from the video.


The first few pictures below are of drawings made for the Kakashi: Shadow of the ANBU Black Ops special. The first one is of a board that has the drawings of Young Kakashi, Obito, Rin, Minato, Jiraiya, Hiruzen, Guy, Genma/Asuma, Raido/Kurenai, and ANBU Kakashi. The second, third, and fourth images are close ups of the Young Kakashi, ANBU Kakashi, and Minato drawings, respectively. The fifth image, not a part of the overall board, is a drawing of Kakashi and Guy as teenagers.



Here are promotional banners for the movie and an ANBU Kakashi figurine from Jump Festa. It seems Hiruzen, Minato, Yamato, and Itachi will be prominent characters in the Kakashi: Shadow of the ANBU Black Ops special.


Lastly, is a timeline of characters and what how they were in different parts of their life. The third row shows an overlap between Kakashi, Yamato, and Itachi as they were in the ANBU. Kakashi is older than Yamato by 2-3 years and Yamato is older than Itachi by about 5-6 years.


  • Masterpiece

    First time im excited for a filler. it better be good ^_^
    First and Merry christmas for everyone :D

  • Carlos Eduado

    kakashi with ambu mask,awesome.

  • Carlos Eduado

    Merry christmas for you too.


    Cool drawings! I hope the fights to be well animated!

  • Carlos Eduado

    imagine kakashi,itachi and yamato with this clothes in storm revolution,of course with different moves,that will be awesome

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    Why Does Kakashi have Sasuke’s MS?
    third screen shot.

  • Surprise Me

    Was waiting to see at one point Kakashi and Yamato’s past when they were still ANBU.

  • DI

    yeah right different moves xD cc2 is too lazy to do that

  • narutobleachop

    nice thinking! if they have new moves in the special CC2 has no excuses for not having these guys and with new jutsus

  • Reda Azzi

    I’d like to get an answer for this please.
    I didn’t know that the dbz game battle of z was digital only outside australia and Japan. so as my psn is aussie I put money on it so I can get battle of z when it comes out or pre order it from psn, I got 70 dollars on it. but now I just saw that battle of z is a physical copy for australia, does this mean, there is no digital for Aussie psn? there is no way I can get the game if its not digital as I got 70 dollars spent for the psn card, and I don’t live in australia…

    That awesome can’t wait I hope it not boring!

  • Carlos Eduado

    yeah,i did that,because of Mecha-Naruto,if cc2 put the story of Mecha-Naruto,in my opinion is not dificult to take that arc of Ambus and then put in the game.

  • uchihalord1994

    That’s a normal third stage sharingan bud! (:

  • Carlos Eduado

    yeah,but i can dream,can i?

  • Jesse Torres

    These are the kind of fillers i like.

  • Carlos Eduado

    Dammit,i want Itachi´s ambu mask.

  • Sasuke Uchiha

    I hope we might see a glimpse of his face

  • Rik Clarke

    Those kakashi sketches and that statue look beast.

  • Sasuke Uchiha

    Or that is English?

  • ramrej

    Kakashi looks mad evil with the anbu mask on and I’m willing to bet he wasn’t the nicest of people at the time. Better yet, he might have become a cold heartless person. Of course this do to the fact that obito and rin are dead (at least to him).

  • suigetsuthirsty

    hope they make it good and i hope they do real dark secret missions

  • kikki preza

    How long that special will last?

  • Oscar Yeung

    Dang I did not know that Itachi was younger than Kakashi by 7-9 years.

  • Kuwabara

    Kakashi’s ambu mask is better in my opinion

  • Kuwabara

    This special will probably make Kakashi into my favorite character in the whole series

  • Gyn

    Itachi was division chief of Anbu Black Ops at 13 years old… so he will probably lead Yamato and Kakashi who have 4-5 more years haha x)

  • narutopiece1

    Hell Yeah!! I am definitely looking forward to this filler XD With this line up: Kakashi, Itachi, Minato, Yamato, and Hiruzen, there is no way you can not be looking forward to this filler :)

  • http://www.narutospot.net/ Naruto Number 1 Fan (True Fan)

    What do you mean English?


    Woahhhhh kakashi with that anbu mask! And kid itachi!

  • narutobleachop

    i think it will last one or two months because of all the characters in it

  • Masterpiece

    When will you add January schedule ? Its already December 25/26 !

  • tin4o19

    January 9th – Episode 344 “Obito and Madara” “Obito to Madara” (オビトとマダラ)

    January 16th – Episode 345 “I’m in Hell” “Ore wa Jigoku ni Iru” (オレは地獄に居る)

  • kingbach

    So sad out of the big 3 naruto could have easily had the best fillers imagine a Hidan and kakauzu and other akatsuki member fillers or a filler about ex members or people who failed to enter and special fillers chronicling the tailed beasts and their captures or All the previous ninja wars such a rich history for easy filler but wasted on sub an uncreative and lazy studio like periott Bones woulda made a great Shippuden or imagine a sasuke assassination mission while training under orochimaru or garra rise to kazekage or a romantic side story or alternative world takes about the narutoverse like a pirate or high school or gangster or modern spy naruto filler

  • AnimePotential

    Have a feeling we’ll get a separate Anbu Kakashi (possibly Itachi as well) in Revolution. At the very least, with all the hype given to this arc, it’s very possible. Now whether that’s a good thing, as they are essentially different versions of the same character, depends on your opinion and just how well they build the character(s) if they do.

  • http://www.narutospot.net/ Naruto Number 1 Fan (True Fan)

    Hey masterpiece! We don’t know the tv guide did not reveal the entire titles for Naruto Shippuden in January! So it only two reveal and tin4o19 already showed you! So I really don’t know when I really hope somewhere this week! Enjoy your Holidays!

  • Oscar Yeung

    LMAO! Yeah! Itachi FW man!

  • Goku

    As much as I would love to agree. I’m gonna have to disagree on that, studio perriot animate a lot of anime. Yea with naruto they f**ked it up, but they can still change there reputation. Jut look at the chikara arc and the war arc, those where done fairly well. They are now making a filler arc on kakashi, which is great.

  • Oscar Yeung

    He already is man. I love his voice actor and is one of my mains in Storm 3.

  • Goku

    I’m gonna learn to contain my excitement. Because sometimes I can get disappointed. Kid Itachi and kakashi are my favs, so omgosh lol

  • http://www.narutospot.net/ Naruto Number 1 Fan (True Fan)

    Hi Kikki how are you? Wanna chat?

  • Goku

    I’m sorry, but who are you? Lol are you a saiyan island contributer that posts upcoming naruto eps?

  • http://www.narutospot.net/ Naruto Number 1 Fan (True Fan)

    No but I know where the titles are coming from and I know the source of it! FYI I talked to saiyan island about it and they said hopefully this week! I am a guy who send to Naruto fans an update about the titles and when it will be reveal and as I said before hopefully this week! I’m not the only one who relate the news but my two friends one you guys hate him so much after he told you guys the titles @Madara Uchiha and @artondrius

  • Ramen Guy (Unmasked Tobi)

    Apparently yamato was born with that head gear lol.

  • Ramen Guy (Unmasked Tobi)

    English that is yes?

  • Goku

    “You guys” Lol I can’t really hate someone I don’t know personally. Anyways that’s awesome. If others hate you guys for this, then they are no lives, selfish, pieces of sh*t. There will always be haters anyways lol

  • Ramen Guy (Unmasked Tobi)

    Lets hope together in despair.

  • kikki preza


  • Dudeondrugs

    That 3rd picture of Kakashi with the Sharingan shining and the mask… just wow, i have high hopes for this :)

  • Naruto

    Can’t wait! Looking awesome!

  • HyugaName


  • Sam Kennedy

    Studio Pierrot doesn’t have a good imagination -.-

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    sweet, minato, kakashi & itachi all in one special!

  • Alexander Ojeda

    Im confused why in the world do people think this is a filler arc everywhere i go i hear the word movie or special this will probably be like kakashi gaiden just a episode hour long

  • Dave Rocker

    revolution should have a create your own ninja mode

  • Kenshiro

    Will buy that Kakashi Anbu Figure. And I have not been excited for anything Naruto in a long time. This looks like it will be dope.

  • http://www.narutospot.net/ Naruto Number 1 Fan (True Fan)

    If you English sub trailer then yes!

  • http://www.narutospot.net/ Naruto Number 1 Fan (True Fan)

    Thank you and I didn’t mean they hate me and artondrius I meant they hate Madara for just that and that stupid!

  • http://www.narutospot.net/ Naruto Number 1 Fan (True Fan)

    Can we chat either on Facebook or skype!

  • Ragnarok

    Ur right, Bones would’ve done a great job or to an extension Sunrise. If Madhouse, Production I.G., or Ufotable, save it for the anime remake.

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    It’s so blurry how can you tell?
    I hope you are rght though those kind of mistakes are annoying.

  • A5J4DX


  • UchihaName

    Looks awesome. Can’t wait!

  • Gyn

    there is no hope in this roten world Unmasked Ramen Guy… you should know that better than anyone haha :)

  • http://www.shippudencave.webs.com/ Shippudencave

    These outfits….. OHMEGAWWDDD, I want them to be in revolution but that’s impossible. And little itachi. …..

  • Shuichi Minamino

  • jam francisco


  • oga tatsumi


  • Kuwabara

    It should but it probably wont :( but lets hope that we get it in Ninja Storm 4 :)

  • Patrick Delafuente

    HELL YEAH!!!!!!!! :D

  • Kuwabara

    Well my favorite characters are Itachi and Pain, and Kakashi was somewhere in my top 10 but this will put him in my 1# spot.

  • SuperSagejin

    This looks amazing, is it a filler arc or a movie?

  • Fahd Al Zarooni


  • disqus_GgCjFvZyeZ

    That kid itachi tho. :D

  • byron123

    Wow, great animation!

  • Umair Spongy Hair

    Might see some kid Itachi action.

  • jpradarojo

    The 3rd image is so baddass

  • Fabio

    Kakashi is boss. He definitely needs a new moveset for storm revolution.

  • http://www.shippudencave.webs.com/ Shippudencave

    Kakashi was born with his mask. He even wears a mask under another mask, Under an ANBU mask.

  • Akirascreaming

    Kakashi looks cool lol, and remember if KAKASHI is in the movie its definitely gonna be good :D !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Masterpiece

    I already know that,but I want to see their prediction and the rest of January episodes…

  • tin4o19

    Just read the manga and you’ll know what the predicitons are.

  • tin4o19

    OMG i can’t beleive that we’re going to see itachi in his first years in ANBU (i think he was around 10 years back then)

  • Ramen Guy (Unmasked Tobi)

    Why pain? The guy is a puppet.

  • Masterpiece

    Im already reading xD

  • Gyn

    And ? Sasori is a puppet too and he is badass as hell , lol Pain deserve to be on everyone top 10 favorite characters :)

  • Abdul Muhaimin


  • Abdul Muhaimin

    itachi look so young…

  • tin4o19

    My Naruto Storm Games comparasion:
    Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm – It was something new. It had beast graphics, great gameplay, big character roster, wall battles, jutsu clashes, mini games, it was 3d, epic free roam, massive boss battles + it was only for the PS3. The only things it lacked were a final boss battle and the way you played the story mode wasn’t bad but it was in the form of missions. It also lacked Online but back then there wasn’t online in naruto games so it wasn’t a big problem.
    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 – Epic. Just EPIC. New Characters, slightly better graphics,
    AMAZING boss battles, bigger world, epic story + it had online. But it lacked the epic free roam from Storm 1, jutsu clashes, wall battles, there were broken characters and people spammed the substitution.
    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations – A new bigger roster with new characters and PTS characters, the Online was better and the broken characters were repaired.
    It lacked jutsu clashes and wall battles. Here’s the worst part – the Story Mode – No free roam, No boss battles, No missions, but it wasn’t that bad because it reviewed the characters’ tales. So it is a good game after all.
    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 – Bigger Roster, sadly with PTS Characters. It had new characters, but most of them were broken. The Online was broken. Still the story was good (except for most of the war arc). Thank God the Story was like Storm 2′s. There was Hack and Slash, but it was worse than Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Nina Impact. It lacked too many characters like Sound 4,
    Edo Kages, Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, Pakura, Gari, Edo Sasori, Edo Kakuzu, Edo Chiyo, Edo Kimmimaro and others. CC2 created too many DLC Costumes. We had too many Narutos and Sasukes. At least the boss battles were epic (or atl least some of them). And CC2 said that it took them 3 years to make this game (I don’t believe them. DO YOU?).
    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution – For now i can say that i like it. Naruto and Sasuke have completely new movesets, there are team ultimate jutsu, there will be over 100 playable characters and the story will probably be like Storm 2 and 3 (because of the title art).
    Sadly the original character created by Masahi Kishimoto is a Training Dummy Replica of Naruto,
    but i like it’s moveset and the other sad thing about this game is that there will be PTS Characters.

  • Ramen Guy (Unmasked Tobi)

    By puppet I meant that he cant think for himself. Nagato controls his every move.

  • uchihalord1994

    Well it was a guess lol and yes it was blurry but its gotta be a normal sharingan since its not that obvious ! and sharingan shines in darkness :3 so the shape can be deceiving

  • Gyn

    who cares its the character himself I prefer pain to nagato lol the design of Pain is awesome and is voice too maybe thats what people like

  • Suck My Bankai

    Young anbu itachi looks so sick.. Also…… I know this is gonna sound stupid right now since its been forever since kakashi has been first seen but, I remember when everyone saw tobi they wanted to know who was under the mask… Well me, I’VE BEEN WANTING TO KNOW WHATS UNDER KAKASHI’S BLANKET OVER HIS MOUTH FOR YEARS.

  • Ging Freecs

    Itachi and pikachu are the only reasons I havent dropped naruto yet

  • Anbu kakashi!!!

    Anbu kakashi better be in revolution & it would be nice for him to have a NEW MOVESET! He supposedly knows over 1000 justus yet he has the lamest moveset EVER. I just dont get it.

  • Kakashi_Yamato_Iruka

    ANBU Kakashi and ANBU Yamato~~~
    Been waiting for a special like this!!!
    Hehe Young Yamato looks adorable

  • Just

    it will be anew movie or new filer in the anime?
    can any one explain plz&thanks:)

  • lordrockman

    filler anime

  • Ray Petree

    Well he would only be like 7 or 8 so…

  • http://www.shippudencave.webs.com/ Shippudencave

    What about that uchiha comedy? Where are all these specials?

  • Abdul Muhaimin

    so hes cute.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-WmpoP6ZSs Kira

    Awsome Itachi looks so cool ^^

  • Masterpiece

    To be exact Kakashi said he joined the ANBU at the age of 13.

  • monkey d goku

    this looks dope

  • Kuwabara

    Yeah dude its the design of Pain he looks so badass and I dont really like Nagato’s design, he looks so harmless.

  • PinkMaru

    My body is ready.

  • AkAiSB1414

    I would like to know what about itachi and sasuke special is it ova or filler or what ?

  • Blaze Gunn

    finally not useless filler arc

  • bobbyrayjenkins

    he said he was a captain when he was 13, not joined. he joined when he was 10

  • Craig

    You think Revolution will continue the story mode? Hahahaha, you’re on crack.

    Storm 2 and 3 were 3 years apart and Storm 3 STILL wasn’t complete and they had to make an alternate ending.

    Storm 3 and Revolutions only has a 1 year gap, prepare yourself for Generations 2.0 my friend,

  • tin4o19

    and what of it even if its like generation wouldn’t it be better
    i think that it was a really good game, i mean there weren’t so many broken characters and bugs like in storm 3 and the story mode wasn’t that bad either so i would like if this game will be like storm 3 or 2 but not like the dumb war story arc of storm 3, buuuuut i prefer a game without broken stuff and bugs instead of a game filled with spamming, bugs, broken movesets, bad story, less combos and so on
    and by the way – merry christmas and a happy new year and i hope that tommorow we will get some real news

  • TheWichi

    I think that would not happen cus… in the timeline you can see Itachi is alone Im pretty sure thats when he become a capitán, but well you know its just what im guessing.

  • Craig

    I loved Generations, but it’s no Storm 3.

  • Elrond98

    Who is Itachi?

  • genieinacassettetype

    I was thinking the same damn thing.

  • butch6


  • Chance Davis

    This actually makes Kakashi look like a badass again. He looks cooler in the anbu than he does when he’s older.

  • AjLuj

    Wow, we will see YAMATO again. Such a longggggg time.

  • Me-chan

    (although it isn’t logic at all that Itachi is older than 5 and Minato is alive, but it doesn’t matter! :3 )

  • Me-chan

    This is a new filler arc starting from February, can’t wait! >_<

  • Sasuke Uchiha

    I mean that your grammar sucks lol

  • http://www.narutospot.net/ Naruto Number 1 Fan (True Fan)

    My English is fine you loser!

  • Sasuke Uchiha

    A little butthurt maybe?

  • Gabby

    well I think is going to skip from Kakashi after he lost Obito and killed Rin to when he was a bit more ‘matured’. I read that Minato wanted him to be an anbu to keep an eye on him, but I guess later the nine tails attacked and all. So I guess is going to be a time skip…

  • noriko

    just amazing,kakashi is so cute

  • Ilja Y.

    I just hope they won’t use a women for young Itachi’s Voice over.

  • Zhat Villegas


  • Zhat Villegas

    well…ur not alone man…want to know what he’s hinding in there…lol
