Naruto light novels – Wraparound jacket band on Hinata Shou, Konoha Shinden Yukemuri Ninpou-chou novel volume is announcing on Thursday that a television anime adaptation for three Naruto Hiden/Shinden Novels also known as Hidden story novels or True story novels has been green lit. The new TV Anime will air in winter 2016, after the end of Naruto Shippuden TV Anime.
Naruto Light Novels TV Anime Details
As i mentioned earlier that the new anime is set to release this winter, although the exact date of the Anime is still not revealed but it will most probably come after the end of Naruto shippuden Anime series. Because the light novels which are getting adapted into the Anime Series covers the stories after the 4th great ninja war and the stories are set after the battle of Naruto and Sasuke.
You can say that these stories will most likely show what happens after 4th great ninja war and obviously there will be some flashbacks. The Anime will cover Konoha’s hidden story, Sasuke’s story and Shikamaru’s Hidden story, the character designs for these novels are similar to the character designs show in “The last – Naruto the movie.”
Naruto Shippuden Anime already covered Itachi’s Hidden Story few months ago covering the entire past of Itachi Uchiha right from his childhood till his death and what happened after that. Originally this story was going to be released as a new Anime but it was later decided that this story should be released as a filler. So basically this story became a canon filler.
So personally i think that this is going to be another canon filler which will take place after the final battle of Naruto and Sasuke. It might also be possible that the studio might release this as a different Anime series. But looking at how the Animation studio has been dragging out the Naruto shippuden Anime for so long, i think that this new Anime will be combined with the original anime series.
