When does Shippuden get good? There are so many different things to consider. We’ll talk about Naruto’s first chunin exam, his fight with Sasuke, and even his relationship with Sakura. But before we get to all the specifics, let’s look at the bigger picture. What is Shippuden’s premise? Why is it such a popular anime?
Naruto’s first chunin exam
After the Land of Waves arc, the Chunin Exams were held. These events were the next step for Naruto to become the next Hokage. The Chunin Exams were meant to showcase the fighting prowess of the genin class. However, some fans dropped off after a couple hundred episodes, and decided to skip the filler. However, many fans remained loyal, and the Chunin Exams were well worth watching.
After taking the Chunin Exam, Naruto’s resolve to become the next Hokage was strengthened. Despite not being able to answer all of the questions, he still fought to the final phase. Naruto’s beast spirit, jinchuriki, transformed him into a more powerful and aggressive fighter. Naruto used this beast spirit to defeat Gaara, who was his main rival.
Although many people thought that the Chunin Exams were purely based on strength, this was a far different matter. The Chunin Exams were designed to test the traits of a leader, as well as his courage and the use of resources. The Chunin Exams were also meant to test his courage, which Naruto displayed by refusing to quit when the going got tough.
The Chunin exams are held in three phases. The first two phases are team-based, while the third phase devolves into one-on-one combats. Each of these fights introduces new characters to the story, and after each of the three stages has been completed, the remaining Genin meet with Anko Mitarashi at the Forest of Death. While Naruto passes the first exam, he is not yet the next Chunin.
Naruto’s defeat of the Akatsuki
The defeat of the Akatsuki in Shippude, which took place in the third season, was one of the series’ highlights. The Akatsuki are an evil organisation that plagued the ninja community and were one of the most memorable villains of anime history. These ninjas sported expensive robes and loved to use nail polish and jewelry. Their main objective was to take over the ninja world. Although they were not equals in power, they sat atop the ninja hierarchy, and fought for control of the ninja world.
During the battle, Naruto and the other ninjas are on the verge of killing each other. When he notices this, he asks Temari to kill him and give the seal back to the ninja. However, the Fourth Hokage Minato Namikaze intervenes and prevents Naruto from releasing the Nine-Tails.
One of the best aspects of Naruto’s defeat of the Akihans was the introduction of a new character to the series, Hidan. Hidan is one of the weakest members of the Akatsuki and was able to kill Jiraya, but was defeated by Shikamaru and Konan without any preparation. The only woman in the Akatsuki, Konan, lacks screentime but has an interesting jutsu. He can transform himself into paper and fire razor-sharp shuriken.
Pain, the final enemy of the Akatsuki, is defeated by Naruto with the help of his Rasengan. The Pain then uses his chakra receivers to manipulate Naruto’s chakras, and Tsunade is left free to rejoin his old self and Sakura. Naruto also battles the Animal and Preta Paths, and uses a Frog Kumite to defeat them.
Naruto’s fight with Sasuke
The fight between Naruto and Sasuke in Shippuden is one of the most intense and emotionally compelling battles in the series. Although both characters are physically dominant and extremely durable, there is a certain amount of mystery surrounding their fight. While both men had multiple chances to kill the other, they were still unable to do so, and it is unclear if this was due to some plot armor or their own skill.
The second season of the series continues the story of Naruto’s quest to become the Hokage. This season is not currently available on Netflix, but you can find it on Hulu and Crunchyroll. The series picks up about two years after the first season’s climax, when Naruto loses to Sasuke. Shippuden focuses on the inner workings of the ninja world and shaping one’s destiny.
Both of these ninjas are driven by revenge. Sasuke’s aim is to kill Naruto in order to unlock a new level of rasengan, a weapon powered by a curse that cursed the Uchiha family. Naruto, however, refuses to die to avenge his brother. Two and a half years after their split from Konoha, Naruto and Sasuke cross paths once more. It is a very dramatic finale to the Naruto Shippuden series.
Throughout the series, Naruto and Sasuke have fought many times. After Sasuke defeated Kaguya and Cell 7, both men were forced to fight each other until their bodies could no longer hold any more energy. Despite their rivalry, though, both men remain friends and support each other. They are the strongest people in the series, and they will continue to be for a long time.
Naruto’s relationship with Sakura
The first major change in Naruto’s relationship with Sakura is when she confesses to being in love with Sasuke. The scene caused a stir as Naruto was surprised to see Sakura revealing her feelings for him. While Naruto normally displays a sad face when he realizes that Sakura is in love with Sasuke, he became angry with her for lying.
After Sakura and Naruto have met, they exchange letters. Sakura is a former student of Sasuke and was the first female shinobi. Their friendship was formed by their mutual admiration for one another. The relationship develops as the two go to the same school to train. Sakura becomes a strong and wise shinobi who is incredibly talented in the arts.
Despite the many obstacles that sasuke and Sakura faced, their love story eventually blossomed. The pair’s relationship endured many trials and tribulations as they became friends and then enemies, but they were reunited after a long separation. Sasuke eventually married Sakura and had a child with him. The relationship continues with the two characters, and is now one of the most complex and layered in the Naruto franchise.
Throughout the series, the relationship between Naruto and Sakura has been a mixed one. While it started out on the wrong foot, it has steadily developed into a close friendship. Sakura even confesses to having feelings for Naruto, though this was ultimately rejected. After the fight, the two are still close, but their relationship has been strained. And despite the fact that they have been together since childhood, there is a lot of tension between them.
Naruto’s relationship with Jiraiya the gallant
While we know that Naruto has a history with a man named Jiraiya the gallant, we do not know exactly how he came to be named this way. The book Jiraiya wrote was inspired by events that happened in his life. Jiraiya named his Godson Naruto and he leaves a copy of the book next to his tombstone. This book is a tribute to Jiraiya, the man who inspired the manga and anime series.
Throughout the series, Naruto’s relationship with Jirai-ya has been the subject of a lot of fan debate. Many have speculated that Naruto’s relationship with Jiraiya the gallant might be a result of their shared DNA. However, it is unclear whether the manga is actually a retelling of Naruto’s relationship with Jiraiya the gallant.
One of the most prominent characters from the series is Jiraiya, one of three Legendary Sannin. Although the Sannin were feared throughout the series, Jiraiya was a deviant who exhibited traits that made his opponents question his own power. One of his favorite hobbies was spying on girls while they were bathing. This was a particularly popular trait among Japanese fans.
The two friends have been friends from the beginning of the series. Jiraiya is a renowned sexual deviant and an eccentric. Jiraiya made money through adult fiction and autobiographies. However, her greatest legacy was teaching Naurto, who later became the child of prophecy. The story is a great example of the importance of friendship in the manga.
