Naruto Shippuden Episode 486 – Considering how interesting were the last two episodes of Sasuke Shinden arc, i had same expectation from this episode. However compared to the last two episode this was more interesting but still delivered us a quite expected outcome. Something which i found disappointing in this episode, what is that expected outcome and why its disappointing i will explain in the review below.
Naruto Shippuden Episode 486 Review
The story continues from where Naruto shippuden episode 485 ended, We thought that En Oyashiro guy is the one who was pulling strings behind the exploding human case and Sasuke and Orochimaru came to capture him. However it turned out that Sasuke and Orochimaru came to get the information from that En Oyashiro guy, as he was once related to the guy Fuushin, the antagonist of this arc.
Upon getting some information after dealing with the exploding humans that appeared at the underground battle venue, Sasuke with the other to companions set out towards the valley of end to find Fuushin. Turns out Uchiha clan had to do something about the people from the clan who was born with kekkei genkai to create exploding humans. And they were exiled to the valley of end. Upon reaching there Sasuke finds out a guy from the lightening guy however he was just working for Fuushin.
Sasuke defeats him easily and then using his Mangekyo sharingan Sasuke learns everything about Fuushin. Thus the identity of Fuushin and his companion was finally revealed and it turned out to be the people who Sasuke met in a small village where he first saw the exploding humans. This was in fact something which i found really interesting. From the very first episode of this arc it was quite expected that two people who are travelling with Sasuke are the antagonist who are hiding their identity from Sasuke.
Naruto Shippuden Episode 486 – Opinion
Their identity was so obvious that i didn’t felt a bit surprised by the fact that the two people travelling along with Sasuke are the ones who are pulling strings behind the exploding human case. But still i found this episode interesting because of the past story of Uchiha clan and their relation to these two antagonist. The entire story is some what cruel. However its something, which keeps you glued to the entire episode!
Naruto Shippuden Episode 486 – New way of developing a character
The episode also also shows how Sasuke is feeling about their entire past, their relation to the uchiha clans and all the sufferings they went through. Which clearly highlights his character development and all these events and moments which were showed in today’s episode was in fact helping him to mature. This overall thing of character development is something which i think, is completely new. This type of character development is not something which you will see in the entire Naruto Shippuden.
Maybe this different way of approach to develop a particular character is only applicable because the guy or the character that the studio and the writers are trying to develop is Sasuke. From the very beginning of Naruto the circumstances in which Sasuke was, became the ideal condition to complete this new approach of developing a character. It also means that, at least for now Sasuke is the only character in the entire Naruto Shippuden who can be developed using this new approach.
Naruto Shippuden Episode 486 – Difference between light novel and anime
Well i forgot to mention this in my last two reviews, that this Sasuke shinden : The book of Sunrise arc is quite different from how it was in light novel. A lot of things were different right from the beginning of this arc and specially this episode was totally different from how its described in the novel. Which is in a whole way another disappointing thing because, there were many important aspects which featured more character development of Sasuke and it was something which i think was real important!
Its clear that the studio is not following the content described in the light novel and made this arc quite direct and easier to understand. To compensate those important aspects they showed Sasuke maturing each and every episode.
This is good to cover the absence of content from the light novel but it still lives an empty feeling especially for the people like me who have read the light novel before and are familiar with the story. It was same thing with Itachi’s story the anime covered it quite differently from the way its described in the novel.
So if you are really interested in reading the novel Sasuke Shinden : The book of Sunrise, then you can visit this link – The book of Sunrise. But let me warn you, you will spoil yourself by knowing the story of next week’s episode i.e Naruto Shippuden Episode 487.
This episode was quite OK compared to the last two episode it was less interesting. However, at the same time it was still good to the point that it was enjoyable. What do you think about this episode? Do tell your opinions.
