Next week on January 23, 2014 get ready for a Naruto Shippuden special! That’s not a one-shot side story, but instead two episodes in one day! Episode 346 is titled “World of Dreams”. The title for episode 347 individually hasn’t been revealed, but as a tandem, the episodes are known as “Akatsuki Begins to Move ~The Bridge to Youth~”. As you can see in the previews below, the episodes will be flashbacks to Obito’s past, including the aftermath of Rin’s death and his meeting with Nagato, Konan, and Yahiko. This is canon and was shown in the manga, but it’s possible some filler might be included along with flashbacks we’ve seen in prior Naruto Shippuden episodes.
