So without wasting anytime lets get to it!

Naruto Shippuden Episode 479 Review

After Sasuke realized his mistake, Naruto and Sasuke had a little rest. In the meantime Sakura and Kakashi arrived to check out what happened. The aftermath of the battle devastated them but as they saw Sasuke and Naruto lying on the ground, Sakura heals them with quick medical assist.

Sasuke apologizes to her for what he did and once again Team 7 becomes the way it was back in the days. Soon after that Naruto and Sasuke undo the Mugen Tuskuyomi No Justsu with their sage powers and everyone comes back to their senses and realize that the war is over. Sasuke also releases the tail beast and set them free.

Scene move towards the village and the aftermath of war is shown. Every shinobi in the konoha mourns for the people whose life were lost in the battle and that includes Neji Hyuga, Inoichi Yamanaka, Shikaku nara. Words about Naruto’s big role in the 4th Great Ninja War spreads all over the world and people comes to visit him at Konoha from faraway place.

This was something which was not shown in the Manga but i am glad that in the Anime they did showed this. But Naruto’s popularity brings huge amount of stress to the security that guards the village gates. The village gates are secured with a barricade. As the policy of the village is that they can’t allow any foreign person in the village.

Naruto’s popularity due to his work in 4th Great Ninja War was briefly shown in “The last – Naruto The Movie.” However seeing the things in detail in the Anime episode really gives you a different feel. Sasuke on the other hand stays in prison. Also Kakashi was appointed as the sixth hokage and tsunade steps down from the job of hokage.

Seeing a mountain of paper work Kakashi doubts himself that he will be able to do it or not! Shikamaru request Kakashi to make him Hokage’s personal adviser. He aims to get away from his lazy life and now wants to become a responsible person. Kakashi accepts his request but he now clearly aims to make Naruto as his successor which is easily shown through his facial expression.

Kazekage Garra and Raikage and Killer bee and his team comes to check out Naruto’s health and meet Kakashi now that he became the sixth hokage. In the meeting with Naruto, they get to know that Tusnade is making a new hand for Naruto with Hashirama’s cells. Shikamaru brings Naruto to the academy where he gets to know that Kakashi is now the new Hokage and he gets pretty surprised with news.

However Kakashi has some other plans for Naruto, first he makes Naruto a Jonin and then he announces Naruto’s training in charge who will give him all knowledge that is necessary for Hokage. Yes! as i mentioned earlier Kakashi now clearly aims to make Naruto his successor. However he does not have enough knowledge to become a responsible and successful Hokage. As you know Naruto pretty much sucks in studies, but Hokage is a person who attends meeting and handles all the political matters.

Naruto is now the strongest shinobi but he is not well versed with political and diplomatic matters, that’s why Kakashi makes him study and keeps Iruka in charge of all his studies. Kakashi also releases Sasuke and from then onward Sasuke begins his journey to atone for everything he did. Sakura urges Sasuke to take her with him but he rejects that and promises her that this time he will come back. And at the end Naruto comes to meet Sasuke where he gives Sasuke his head band and that’s where the series ends.

Although they changed the ending which was pretty abrupt in my opinion – The story part where third hokage’s voice actor describes Naruto’s story as “Once upon a time a nine tailed beast attacked the village, the beast was sealed by 4th hokage inside a child. Over the time, the child and the beast became friends. However a new calamity Juubi was resurrected. The boy grew up to be shinobi, together with clans and villagers and the tailed beast sealed inside him. He defeated Juubi, the boy was named as Uzumaki Naruto.”

This entire story part comes after Naruto becomes 7th Hokage, however this part was shown in today’s episode and they didn’t show Naruto as a hokage. That means the series did not end and there are more episodes coming in near future!

Opinion

To be honest this episode was the most satisfying episode I’ve ever watched. They made this episode pretty different from the Manga and showed the events happened after war in complete detail. These were the things which we always wanted to know.

Also its satisfying to know that Naruto won’t stay genin forever, Finally Kakshi did what Tsunade never did. He made Naruto a Jonin and with a clear aim to make Naruto as his successor, he started his Hokage training without wasting anytime and on top of it he made Iruka in charge of it! Naruto becoming popular all over the world was also one of the best thing.

However just when we thought that we will get to see Naruto’s Hokage training fillers strikes once again. Yes next week we are getting fillers based on Naruto and Hinata’s childhood. The arc is also known as Boyhood arc. For more details check out the links below

Wrapping up

This episode was pure satisfaction. However we still can’t wait to see Naruto ascending the throne of Hokage. So what are your views about this episode? do you like it or not?
