Naruto Shippuden Kaguya Story – Well we thought that, Naruto Shippuden got back to canon with end of the Itachi’s story in episode 458 but seems we were wrong, since episode 459 stated that from episode 460 onwards we are getting background story of Kaguya. Well its frustrating that we are going back into the fillers once again, but guess what, it was decided more than a year ago that we are getting Kaguya’s filler after Itachi story.
As a matter of fact i have been reporting about Kaguya fillers, in every news article about Naruto Shippuden on this site from past few months. If you want you can read the articles given below to confirm that but as you can see it was not an unexpected news :-

Naruto Shippuden Kaguya Story
As i mentioned its kinda frustrating that we are going back to the fillers once again but, its also pretty much true that we know nothing when its come to Otsutsuki Kaguya. Well yes, she was the first chakra user and was feared as a rabbit goddess, she was mother of Sage of six paths and his brother, she was corrupted by the power she wielded and she used the first Mugen Tuskuyomi because of which she was sealed to death by her own sons. But seriously that was not enough to justify why she was corrupted and became obsessed with power she once wielded. Was she really a good person? or a pure evil person?
So what i want to say is all the things we know about Otsutsuki Kaguya, are more like giving a feeling that we are only scratching the surface and because of which the plot of Naruto somewhat felt incomplete. Now if we considered the story only from Manga and neglect the Anime, its easy to notice that Naruto Manga has gave a clear justification and motive behind the actions of each and every main antagonist – Starting right from Orochimaru, then Obito and then Madara and this applies to other characters too. Only the clear justification behind Kaguya and Black Zetsu’s action were not given, the background story and the reason for the actions were not too deep, despite being the main instigator of everything.
So i am not really sad or angry with the news that Naruto shippuden kaguya story is starting this week but instead i feel frustrated that they seriously messed up with the timing and lagged the story of the entire series by adding unnecessary fillers, Especially the “Jiraya Ninja Scroll Fillers.” Because of which am not sure that how i should accept the fact that the we are getting fillers once again this week. Well anyways i would be more happy about this Kaguya filler if the story would have continued with the canon episodes and less filler episodes and then would have started with this filler.
Naruto Shippuden Episode 459 Review
Well as a matter of fact in this episode 459 there was nothing new to review. Since this episodes contains some emotions as well as some shocking expressions of our characters who couldn’t comprehend the godlike power of Otsutsuki Kaguya. So episode 459 started with Naruto and Sasuke battling Kaguya yet they are not able to put a scratch on her.
Kaguya’s existence is like god as well as ghost because Sakura and Kakashi were intimidated by her appearance with shear fear. Still unlike Sakura, Kakashi gathers some guts to ask her – “what’s her motive?” So in return we get to know that all she wanna do is gather all chakra to her once again. She keeps saying – “Chakra belongs to me alone!” well guys, what could be the meaning of this? Does she wants to rule the world as the only being with chakra? and maintain the world peace with fear?
Well her words and her actions give the similar vibes. Getting back to the topic she changes the dimension using her immense power and transfers all people into the world of lava. Where Kakashi and Sakura falls in danger. Naruto asks Sasuke to save him, Kakashi and Sakura but instead Sasuke only saves Naruto, So Naruto somehow saves Kakashi and Sakura.
Sasuke tells Naruto in return that don’t bother about them because they can’t do anything, if we try to save them they will get in our way, right now our only concern is Kaguya, if one of us (Naruto or Sasuke) dies then its the end of the world. Naruto replies in return that “My body just moved on my own, just like on that bridge. Well anyways you know what i am talking about!” and then Naruto and Sasuke VS Kaguya resumes once again.
The battle continues on, where Naruto discovers that he can fly now (since he has the chakra of Sage of six paths) What’s more interesting is Naruto and Sasuke reminded Kaguya of her own grandsons Indra and Ashura. So she traps them and takes more closer look at them and cries. And that’s where Zetsu starts telling his and Kaguya’s story and the episode ends.
With the way Naruto Shippuden episode 458 and Naruto Shippuden episode 459 progressed, seriously, it made me more curious about Otsutsuki Kaguya’s background and i will admit that am slightly happy that we are getting know more about her and her background and more about the Otsutsuki clan. But i also hope that they won’t take too much time in explaining her story and background and keep the fillers more short and stick more to the canon.
We have sticked to the series this entire time so, i don’t mind sticking to the series a little longer. I really want to see Naruto till the end since this is the series i have been watching ever since i was a kid. Tell me what you guys think about the upcoming Naruto shippuden kaguya story. Are you curious to know more about Kaguya? or are you just angry?
