Over time, as he starts to lose against the clone, the Nine-Tails starts to take control over Naruto's body and assumes a seven-tailed jinchūriki state with Yamato trying to restrain it. At the same time, though followed by Kakashi Hatake, Kabuto Yakushi manages to take his leave in midst of the ensuing chaos. Dokku and Shiseru decide to deactivate the Ama no Hoko and say good-bye to the children. On their way there, they confess their love for each other and decide to get married if they survive before portions of the ground start to sink, with Dokku keeping Shiseru from falling. By that time, Miina is able to get through Naruto, regaining control as he assumed a new form to save Shiseru after telling Dokku to go forward and stop the Ama no Hoko.

Shocked to not see the beast before him but actually his son, three of the four Kage are captured by sand arms created by Gaara.

As the battle waged on, the Fourth Kazekage is shocked to find himself trapped in Gaara's attack alongside the Second Mizukage and the Third Raikage. Seeing the sand manifest in the form of his late wife after protecting Gaara from one of his attacks, the former Kazekage realises that Karura had been protecting Gaara his whole life. Remorsefully, the Kazekage tells his son the truth of his mother's love for him and apologised that all he had done for Gaara was rob him of happiness, now realising that he had actually been unable to judge the true value of things in the end. Shocked to hear the truth of his mother's love form him and what Yashamaru had been forced to lie to Gaara and say, the young Kazekage breaks down crying. Gaara would later tell his father that while his mother was truly amazing, it was his father who had finally given him medicine to heal his wounded heart.

    Re: Official Naruto Shippuden Anime Schedule

    ✘ FEBRUARY 2013 SCHEDULE ✘



    Episode 299: The Acknowledged One (認められし者)
    Date of Release: February 7, 2013
    As Naruto fights to clutch onto his soul that the now-revitalised Nagato was attempting to remove from his body, B arrives at their location and attempts a surprise attack but it is foiled by the shared field-of-vision Nagato has with the Giant Snake-Tailed Chameleon and the King of Hell which had been summoned to store the young man's soul. In the clutches of Nagato's mechanical arms with a cannon pointing at him in point-blank range, the two jinchūriki are saved by Itachi and his Susanoo. Nagato, however, quickly regenerates and uses Chibaku Tensei with the intent of crushing his targets into the planetary body. Though Naruto raised the alarm that there was little they could do against this technique, Itachi rallies the group and has them use their most powerful long ranged attacks to target the centre of the sphere, effectively neutralising the attack. In the aftermath of this, Itachi is able to pierce Nagato with his Totsuka Sword freeing the Rinnegan-wielder from Kabuto's control. With the time he had left, Nagato lamented the fact that he had sullied the brilliant legacy their master had left behind and told Naruto to be the most amazing end to the trilogy that he could be. With this, Naruto tries to move out to the battlefield, but his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode wears off leading Itachi to tell him to not rely solely on his own power, but to put some trust in his comrades and their own power. After telling B to take care of Naruto, he incinerates the crow with Shisui's Sharingan and departs to deal with the person controlling the reincarnated shinobi.



    Episode 300: The Mizukage, the Giant Clam, and the Mirage (水影と蜃と蜃気楼)
    Date of Release: February 14, 2013
    Gaara is sealing the Second Mizukage and the Third Raikage with sand in the form of his mother, but they escape. They begin ruthlessly attacking the Fourth Division. Meanwhile, Ōnoki and Mū simultaneously attack each other with their Particle Style: Atomic Dismanlting Technique. Mū warns him to call Gaara to use his Sensory-type techniques or Ōnoki, who as aged, will die. The Second Mizukage tries helping the Fourth Division by explaining his skills to them and how they can counter them. The Second summons his Giant Clam as the Third Raikage suggests to them to use Earth Style as a shield and Wind Style as an offence. He leaves as Temari and other wind and earth style Shinobi follow him. Gaara leaves leaving some of the other shinobi in charge, much to the Second Mizukage's disproval. Gaara arrives to help Ōnoki fight Mū, who has cast his Hiding with Camouflage Technique, who is not affected by his Rock Clones. He prepares to use the Particle Style again, but Naruto in his Nine Tails' Chakra Mode, arrives to help using his Planetary Rasengan. He misses since Mū is a sensory type, but he uses Gaara's sand to jump towards him again and blasts him away with the technique. Ōnoki quickly uses his Earth Release: Added-Weight Rock Technique to subdue him in the ground before Gaara seals him. He angrily asks Naruto why he is in the battlefield just as Shikaku speaks speaks to them and explains why Naruto's there. Gaara asks Naruto if he can handle using the Nine Tails' chakra so easily, and he answers that he doesn't plan to die until becoming Hokage, and is not a kid just because Gaara is Kazekage. He starts going to where the Third Raikage is as they go to the Second Mizukage. The shinobi there are still struggling to defeat the Second's genjutsu, and are attacked by his Water Balloon Technique before Gaara rescues them. However, the oil in the technique keeps weakening his sand. Gaara engages the Second while defending mostly. While doing so, he is secretively using his sand to find the real clam. Onoki then tries to blow it up, but he doesn't have enough chakra. He then uses his stone fist to break the clam's shell and its genjutsu. However, Onoki strains his back, allowing the Second to use his Water Gun technique to seemingly kill Onoki.



    Episode 301: Paradox (矛盾)
    Date of Release: February 21, 2013
    As the Fourth Division's attacks prove futile against the Third Raikage, he re-emphasises how they were to attack him. Temari and a few other tessenjutsu users attack the Third with the Wind Release: Cast Net technique which appears to have finally incapacitated the Raikage, but as shinobi from the Sealing Team move in to bind him, they are sent reeling. Spotting his former aide Dodai amongst the Allied Shinobi Forces' ranks, he steps forward and tells Temari a bit more about the Raikage and noted that they needed a more powerful Wind Release technique to attack him. Noting that there was not a more powerful Wind Release user amongst their ranks or even in the Alliance, Naruto Uzumaki's shadow clone arrives, announcing that he would be able to do the job. Leaping into action, Naruto forms a Rasenshuriken which after some manipulation, finally lands an attack on the Raikage which proves to be just as futile. Retreating as Kabuto Yakushi eradicated the Third's persona, Dodai instructed the Earth Release users to erect a wall which he himself fortifies. Telling his comrades to retreat nonetheless, his words fall on deaf ears as the Raikage breaks through the wall using his Hell Stab. As the division is set upon again, Naruto and Dodai discuss the legacy of the Raikage leading Naruto to want to know how the Third got the scar on his body which was noted to be the "ultimate shield". Needing to ask the Eight-Tails directly, Dodai creates a distraction which the Third chases, buying them time to contact Inoichi Yamanaka who patches them through to B. Upon hearing of the monstrous battle between the Third and the Eight-Tails, Naruto formulates a strategy using Sage Mode as his cloak had dissipated due to attempting to make a Tailed Beast Ball. Ultimately, the Third ends up stabbing himself with his One-Finger Nukite, and his body begins to disintegrate and he is eventually bound and sealed. Dodai surmises that in the end, no one person could have the strongest shield and spear, noting that in the end, the Third had the strongest spear. Naruto agrees, noting that Gaara probably had the strongest shield. Meanwhile on Gaara's battlefield, the division struggle to defeat the Second Mizukage.



    Episode 302: Terror: The Steam Imp (恐怖・蒸危暴威)
    Date of Release: February 28, 2013
    Ōnoki is revealed to be a sand clone shocking the Second Mizukage as the sand rose up to seal him. However, before the tags can be completely applied, Gaara's Desert Layered Imperial Funeral explodes and the Mizukage's ominous face appears in the sky above them. As hail begins to fall, Ōnoki explains that this was not genjutsu again, but the Second's Steaming Danger Tyranny technique. As a chibi-like clone forms before them and begins to attack the Fourth Division, Gaara sets out to find the real Mizukage who, as the Tsuchikage noted, had been left severely weakened after using this technique. Finding him, Gaara moves to immediately seal the Mizukage, but once again before the seals can be applied, the clones intervenes this time, ripping them off the sand pyramid. Popping his head out from atop the pyramid, the Second greets his opponents serenely before ducking back in to avoid a volley of shuriken launched at him. Commenting that this was a good spot to hide, the Mizukage tells the Kazekage and Tsuchikage that he would no longer divulge the mechanisms behind his techniques, because if they were unable to defeat him, they had no hope of taking on the opposition's leader. Narrowly protecting his division from another explosion, Gaara then directly takes on the clone and is successfully able to stop the clone after using a mixture of his sand drenched in hail and his father's gold dust to both halt the clones movements and stop it from exploding by keeping it cool. Greatly impressed by this feat, the Second beams at Gaara stating that he and Naruto Uzumaki who had made his way to the battlefield eventually made a good combination. Before being sealed, the Second declares that he had found the golden egg amongst the current Kage after all. Elsewhere on the battlefield, it is revealed that before being sealed away, Mū had split himself in half. Unable to free his other half, Kabuto Yakushi contemplates his next move which would buy him enough time to summon his trump card. On the Alliance's side, everything has come to a standstill in the face of the threat of the White Zetsu Army clones infiltrating their ranks, especially at the Logistical Support and Medical Division.

    Re: Official Naruto Shippuden Anime Schedule

    ✘ MARCH 2013 SCHEDULE ✘



    Episode 303: Ghosts of the Past (過去の亡霊)
    Date of Release: March 7, 2013
    With the Allied Shinobi Forces on high alert because of the imposters within their midsts, their worries are further added to when Otogakure's Sound Four is reincarnated on the battlefield. The members of Konoha's disbanded Sasuke Retrieval Team, however, make short work of these opponents, displaying just how much they had grown over the years despite the amplification of their opponent's cursed seals. However, the Alliance's cheers of victory are soon stifled as a seal activates around the defeated shinobi and Kiba Inuzuka, Akamaru, Neji Hyūga, Shikamaru Nara, and Chōji Akimichi. Elsewhere, as he moves towards the location, Naruto senses the malevolence on the battlefield and rushes towards his friends' location.



    Episode 304: The Underworld Trasfer Jutsu (黄泉転身の術)
    Date of Release: March 14, 2013
    As Neji, Shikamaru, Chōji, Kiba, and Akamaru regroup to assess their situation, on the other side their friends frantically try to figure out what is wrong with them. Realizing that they are all still alive but left in a form of suspended animation with weak pulses and lethargic chakra flow, Shino and Ino do what they can to keep their comrades' chakra flowing, while requesting word be sent to HQ about the situation. Elsewhere, within the barrier erected by the Sound Four, the Konoha shinobi battle it out once again for their lives. News soon reaches Ino and Shino from Inoichi that their comrades are in something akin to a genjutsu state and that the only way to save them is to locate and recall their souls somehow although not even the sensory barrier at HQ is able to locate their souls. Elsewhere as Naruto rushes towards his friends' location, he encounters a group of shinobi, and takes out a transformed White Zetsu Army clone. After affirming that there were no more enemies in the group, Naruto moves on as there were no shinobi from the Communications Team there. Despite the fact, however, that the Konoha shinobi seem to have the upper hand in their battle against the Sound Four, their enemies regroup and tell them that their efforts are futile against immortals and then informs them that even if somehow they are defeated, there will be no escaping from the barrier; leaving the Konoha shinobi with two seemingly no-win options: die by their hands within the barrier or wait until their bodies in the real world eventually give out, and die regardless.



    Episode 305: The Vengeful (復讐者)
    Date of Release: March 21, 2013
    As the search to find their comrades' souls become frantic, as both Shino and Ino will themselves to continue keeping their comrades alive, within the barrier, the battle wages on between the Sound Four and the members of the disbanded Sasuke Retrieval Team. Meanwhile on the battlefield, Naruto is finally able to get in touch with HQ after finally finding someone from the Communications Team. When told that there was nothing that could be done as there was no-one in the Allied Shinobi Forces that could sense souls, Naruto lashes out at Shikaku for his seeming indifference to the welfare of his own son, but Shikaku merely notes that as the Chief Strategist of the Alliance, it was his duty to keep a level head and co-ordinates their efforts on the battlefield. Back within the barrier, as the Konoha-nins' efforts seem even more wasted, they are further perplexed by Shikamaru's constant aggravation of their opponents amidst their seemingly coordinated attacks. The Sound Four's true intention are soon revealed, as they note that they had become more powerful by carrying a vengeful will which was empowering them beyond their imagination — believing that Orochimaru was the one to have reincarnate them. This soon proves to be their undoing as their ill-will festered and grew to tremendous levels, seeping out of the barrier, allowing Naruto to pin-point their location. Realising the rationale behind Shikamaru's indirect and aggravating attacks, on the other side of the barrier Naruto creates an enormous Rasengan and successfully destroys the barrier, freeing his comrade's souls which return to their bodies. Back in their bodies, the Alliance is overjoyed to see their comrades alive and well. Conversely, however, Naruto worries, that negative feelings were still festering all over on the battlefield..



    Episode 306: The Heart's Eye (心の目)
    Date of Release: March 28, 2013
    As the remnants of the White Zetsu Army are eradicated one by one, the Hyūga cousins, Neji and Hinata fight side by side with Hinata protecting the newly-recuperated Neji. During this time, Hinata remembers the time that Neji protected her when they were younger: Neji was left in charge of Hinata's training as her father Hiashi had left the village on other duties. During the gruelling training, Hinata's eyesight became severely strained and she is put on bed-rest by a doctor in order to recover. Not wanting Hinata to miss the fireworks that she had made plans to attend with Team Kakashi, Neji goes to seek out the Eyebright plant that is fabled to grow in the Valley of Judgement, despite being advised against it. Accompanied by Naruto and Sakura, they make their way to the valley, where they are beset upon by humanoid creatures, without faces. Though they initially put up a valiant effort to stave them off, it starts becoming increasingly apparent that they it would become a battle of attrition until Might Guy and Kakashi make a surprise appearance and send the creatures scurrying away. After explaining why they are there, Kakashi notes that the search for the plant is futile and with that they all return to the village. Later, during the fireworks display, Hinata sits on her verandah for the display. In present time she reveals to Neji that Naruto and Sakura had told her the lengths he went through to help her, and had always wanted to thank him. With that, they resolve to defeat the enemy until Naruto arrives on the battlefield.

They escape and get tended to their wounds. It is learnt that they cannot carry on further owing to their wounds. Yūgao explains to Sakura why she cannot fight anymore.

During the fight she is saved from a death blow from Hayate by Yūgao who had decided to step in. Yūgao tells Sakura to fetch the sealing corps. The fight ensues during which Hayate commends Yūgao on her improvement in swordsmanship. During the fight Kabuto senses the delay and tries to take over Hayate's consciousness who seemingly pins Yūgao to a tree but in fact is saved by the efforts of Hayate to take back control and gets himself pierced by Yūgao's sword and falls.

    ✘ MAY 2013 SCHEDULE ✘




    Episode 311: "Prologue of Road to Ninja"
    Date of Release:May 2, 2013
    Tobi speaks with Zetsu about testing out a limited, trial-version of the "Infinite Tsukuyomi", but first notes that he needs to find what the target of the technique desires. Using the Crystal Ball Jutsu, Tobi finds Naruto Uzumaki in his apartment, bored and playing cards with two shadow clones. Meanwhile, Team Guy returns from a mission, with Tenten suggesting a trip to the public bath. Rock Lee declines her offer stating that he needed to train. During his training, he came across Naruto who was still in his apartment sulking and had the idea to invite him and the rest of the their friends to the public bath. In the baths, Sakura asks Hinata to loosen up, only for her to complain about her sizeable bust, much to Sakura's envy. While the girls bathed, Naruto told the guys that Lee would come after his training. Akamaru, who had sneaked into the bath house as a transformed Kiba, got soap all over the floor, which caused Chōji to slip and roll into the bath. This caused some of the water to flow out and prompted Shikamaru to have Chōji use the Expansion Justu in order to get the water level back up. While training on what was the top of the female changing area, Lee falls through the ceiling, getting himself caught by an angry Ino. Naruto, who decided to try to peek at the girls despite Neji's warning, witnessed their angry reactions at Lee, accusing him of being a pervert. Naruto, however, knew that Lee gathered everyone together so that Naruto wouldn't be alone and stood up for him. However, unbeknownst to Naruto, a bra got stuck to the back of his towel, causing Sakura to beat him up thinking he was being a panty thief. With the trip essentially ruined, Naruto returned to his apartment, still sulky. Later that night, however, the guys came to Naruto's apartment for a game of cards and after they left, Naruto felt depressed as he wished they had stayed for dinner.

After being swallowed by Roshi after he fully transformed into the Four Tails, Naruto meets the Tailed Beast himself, who insists that he be called by his actual name: Son Goku. After brief discussion about the humans' treatment of the Tailed Beasts, upon which Naruto learned the Nine-Tailed Fox's true name is Kurama, Son sees Naruto to be an exception.

Inside his subconscious, Son reveals to Naruto that the chakra rod is stuck at the base of his neck while in Tailed-Beast form and Naruto locates and starts pulling it out, with resistance from Tobi. Silently observing all that transpires, Kurama recalls Naruto's past achievements by his willingness to never give up and accepts that if Naruto truly wishes to help the Tailed-Beasts from the bottom of his heart, then as he always has, his actions would speak far louder than his words. Finally, Naruto uses a clone in Sage Mode he left inside the Four-Tails' body to find the exact spot the rod is located in relation to its position outside and uses Frog Strike to successfully push the rod out of the Four-Tails.

In his new Tailed Beast Mode, saving Kakashi and Guy, Naruto uses his remaining time in the form to battle the five Tailed Beasts while his clone locates their chakra receivers. The five Tailed Beasts make a collaborative Tailed Beast Ball, which Naruto matches with one of his own, sending the attacks into the sky.

Upon touching them, Naruto finds himself in a mental plane, along with Kurama, the other Jinchuriki and their Tailed Beasts. After the Jinchuriki and the Tailed Beasts give Naruto their names, they reveal the relationship between Roshi and Son to the youth. Watching his fellow Tailed Beasts each gift Naruto with a bit of their chakra like Son had, Kurama recalls their last moments with the Sage of the Six Paths at the time of their creation long ago. As Naruto removes the chakra receivers, Kurama is assured by the others' agreement with him that Naruto is the one the Sage foretold to show them the way.

Elsewhere, the Hokage Guard Platoon along with Dodai and Sagan continue to pursue Mū. While the Kage are distracted, Madara unleashes his Susanoo, causing them to fall through the trees. Madara proceeds to set the forest ablaze and not long after, the five Kage became unconscious. Ōnoki, continuously losing his consciousness, remembers of his talk with the First Tsuchikage about the strong will of the Iwa shinobi.

The other Kage are stunned to hear this while Madara remains unimpressed with Tsunade's abilities. He activates his Susanoo ribcage as Tsunade attacked him, slightly cracking the Susanoo. Madara tries immolating Tsunade but is stopped by Mei, who also attacks. A and Onoki deals a heavy blow on Madara while Tsunade lands a kick on the latter. Madara commented on Tsunade's abilities. Madara noted that all that remains of Hashirama is his cells inside of him and all that's left of Izuna was his eyes that belong to him now. He further stated that the only thing that could be passed on is hatred. Meanwhile, at the other battlefield, Chōza reveals to Dan that Madara Uchiha has been reanimated and that the five Kage are dealing with him. Dan was shocked to learn that Tsunade was now the Hokage. Dan expressed concern that they should instead, find the caster of the technique, noting that Hashirama is the only shinobi capable of defeating Madara. At the same time, Tsunade landed a devastating attack on Madara as his body begins to reform. Gaara attempted to bind and seal him although it was revealed to be a clone. Though the real Madara stabs Tsunade with his Susanoo Sword from below, he finds that Tsunade is able to heal without hand seals. Onoki attacks Madara with Particle Style but, Madara absorbs it through the Preta Path. Tsunade questions Madara's confidence, stating that the Kage forced him to use a wood clone. Madara admits five on one is a good match-up, thus creating twenty five wood cloones, with five each to battle each of the Kage. Meanwhile in the forest, after evading Sasuke with his crows, Itachi finds Kabuto. However, Sasuke managed to follow his brother while he mistook Kabuto for Orochimaru. Kabuto attempted to manipulate Sasuke, only for him to note that he is his enemy. Sasuke attempts to kill Kabuto but is stopped by Itachi who noted that they need to not kill him in order to stop the technique. As Sasuke agrees to cooperate but for Itachi to answer his questions later, the two Uchiha brothers and Kabuto prepared themselves for a dynamic battle that is to come.



    Episode 334: Sibling Tag Team (兄弟, 共闘!!)
    Date of Release: October 10, 2013

    Kabuto blocks his vision with his hood as a means of evading the Uchiha's visual genjutsu, then starts the fight by unleashing multiple snakes at the two brothers. Both Itachi and Sasuke evade the snakes, then used their Susano'os to grab hold of them. As the fight continues, Kabuto tells Sasuke that he is underestimating him before reveals that he possesses similar variations of some of the abilities of Taka: Suigetsu's flesh-liquid transformations, Karin's accelerated healing abilities, and Jugo's ability to utilize nature energy. Kabuto then reveals Jugo's lineage and how Orochimaru developed the Cursed Marks when his study on Jugo's DNA led him to the legendary Ryūchi Cave where the White Snake Sage lives. Though Orochimaru could not use Sage Jutsu as his host bodies couldn't tolerate nature energy, Kabuto mastered it as he unveils his Sage Mode. Sasuke says that his new form is nothing different from Orochimaru, but Kabuto explains that he exceeded his former master and considers himself as a snake transformed into a dragon. Kabuto proceeds to overwhelm the Uchiha before Itachi manages to counter at the last moment. Asking Sasuke if he remembered the plan they used while on a mission hunting a wild boar, Itachi uses his brother's aid to manage to cuts off one of Kabuto's horns. Meanwhile, battling twenty five wood clones, the Five Kage find themselves at a greater disadvantage when Madara has his clones conjure Susano'os of their own.



    Episode 335: To Each Their Own Leaf (互いの木ノ葉)
    Date of Release: October 24, 2013

    Kabuto is amused at the fact that Sasuke is now getting along well with his late brother, despite his intent to kill him in the past. Attempting to manipulate him over to his side by saying both their goals are to destroy the Hidden Leaf, Sasuke remains unconvinced as the young man denied his and Kabuto's goals are mutual. Recalling his life as a spy working for Konoha, Kabuto notes that he and Itachi are the same — both worked for the village and yet received dishonour in return. Itachi, however, declares that he is still Konoha's Itachi Uchiha, regardless of its dark side and inconsistencies. Casting the conversation aside, Itachi tells Sasuke about a technique that decides destiny — Izanami, which he will use to stop Kabuto and the Reanimation jutsu. Wasting no time, Kabuto attacks the brothers once more with his Sage Art: Inorganic Reincarnation, causing the cave formations to attack them. Kabuto attempts to rewrite Itachi's mind with the talisman but is thwarted by Sasuke. Kabuto begins to boast about his current abilities and that he is closer than anyone in the world to the Sage of the Six Paths. Criticising the Uchiha name in the process, he was stopped by Sasuke before he could say anything more as Itachi noted Kabuto reminded him of his old self. Kabuto recalls his childhood as an orphan, being raised by Nonō in the Leaf Orphanage, while stating that from the very beginning, he wasn't aware of his identity and that he had nothing all his life.



    Episode 336: Kabuto Yakushi (薬師カブト)
    Date of Release: October 31, 2013

    Kabuto remembers when he first met Orochimaru when he and the rest of the Leaf Orphanage aided several wounded Hidden Leaf Ninja, the Sannin member seeing potential in the child despite not interested in becoming a ninja. But that night, when Nonō is blackmailed by Danzo into an intelligence gathering mission in the Hidden Stone Village, Kabuto also ends up in Root's services as he spend much of his childhood infiltrating the villages of the Five Great Shinobi Nations. It was only while on a mission in the Stone Village to take out an enemy, Kabuto is attacked by who he quickly learned to be Nonō when he gravely wounded her. Attempting to heal her, Kabuto is shocked that she did not recognize him as he is forced to run away. Pondering this, Kabuto is once again approached by Orochimaru who bring him to his secret laboratory where he reveals that Root orchestrated Kabuto and Nonō to kill each other to silence them. Though he admits that he was supposed to kill any survivor, reminding the child of his lack of individuality due to Root, Orochimaru instead offers Kabuto a position as his right hand with the promise of true identity of his very own. Years later, after Orochimaru's later defeat by Sasuke, Kabuto injected himself with his former mentor's blood to achieve his quest to find his "true self".

    ✘ NOVEMBER 2013 SCHEDULE ✘




    Episode 337: The Izanami Activated (発動・イザナミ)
    Date of Release: November 7, 2013

    Casting aside Itachi's lectures to him, Kabuto reveals he assimilated more than just Orochimaru's DNA as he creates a construct of Sakon from the base of his navel snake through which he can use the signature attacks of the Sound Five. Although easily countering Kabuto's attacks at first, Itachi and Sasuke find themselves trapped in Tayuya's genjutsu so he can finish them off with an white snake Orochimaru construct. However, though a combined effort, Sasuke and Itachi escape the genjutsu and fend the snake off by casting genjutsu on each other. Kabuto, however, appears from the mouth of the snake with a surprise attack and bisects Itachi, tearfully stating his superiority before attempting to regain control over the reanimated ninja. As his body reforms, Itachi called out to Sasuke as he threw his sword at Kabuto, only for the snake sage to block and then counter. Kabuto then attacks Itachi with the sword and claimed that his genjutsu cannot affect him. But upon realizing a sense of déjá vu in the brothers' attack pattern, having claimed to be immune to such a trick, Kabuto learns that he is trapped with his mind via the endless loop of the Uchiha Clan's genjutsu Izanami.



    Episode 338: Izanagi and Izanami (イザナギとイザナミ)
    Date of Release: November 14, 2013

    With Izanami activated, and Kabuto trapped within its infinite loop, Sasuke uses this time to question his brother about the technique. Itachi tells Sasuke about the history behind Izanami's creation as well as the Uchiha clan's use of the technique. Itachi ultimately reveals to Sasuke that Izanami was created with the sole purpose of stopping the users of the technique's counterpart: Izanagi so that they would accept their fate — which is also the way to escape the infinite loop. Angered by the fact that Itachi would cast a technique that has an escape route, Sasuke questions his motives to which Itachi says that he wished to give Kabuto an opportunity to accept his fate. Sasuke, however, claims that Itachi is perfect and rather different from Kabuto but the elder Uchiha refuses this claim. Elsewhere, somewhere in a forest seemingly some distance away, a grown-up Urushi tells his comrade that he hoped by the time he gets home, Kabuto will be there. Back at the cave, Itachi prepares to put an end to the Reanimation jutsu.

    Date of Release: November 21, 2013

    Back at the front lines, the five Kage struggle to hold their own against Madara's Susanoo-clad wood clones. However, Ōnoki rallies them to fight, noting that they need to fulfil a task at which they cannot fail. Madara realises that Ōnoki is the problem and that he must break his will. With that, the Kage go on the offensive against Madara's clones once more. However, the situation soon takes a turn for the worse as Madara in turn responds with his full power by activating his final Susanoo and proceeds to use its sword to attack them. Elsewhere at the cave, Itachi commands Kabuto to put an end to the Reanimation Jutsu. Sasuke resolves that he will destroy the village that made his brother suffer for so long and bids farewell to Itachi forever. As lights begin to descend on the battlefield and the reincarnated shinobi begin to fade into pillars of light, Itachi approaches Sasuke and uses his Sharingan to show Sasuke everything about the Uchiha clan massacre. With the truth revealed to Sasuke at last, Itachi then imparts his final words to his brother, stating that no matter what happens and regardless of what he does from here on out, he will love him always.

    Watching Itachi's soul depart back into the afterlife, Sasuke becomes conflicted with his resolve before being found by Suigetsu and Jugo. Elsewhere, across the battlefield, the various ninja that Kabuto reanimated are descending back into the afterlife. The other Kage mystified by the turn of events while Onoki notes whoever is responsible is a true hero among ninja. Using his Ghost Transformation jutsu to take control of his then-ascending soul, Dan reaches Tsunade's location. Speaking to Tsunade within her subconscious, Dan gives her the remainder of his chakra before fading away to restore her Reserve Seal. As Tsunade comes to, she and the other Kage find Madara still among the living as he reveals that he rescinded the summoning contract while advising the Kage to tell the caster not to use a forbidden jutsu so carelessly. Elsewhere, seeing the reanimated Jinchurikis' departure as a sign of Itachi's success, Naruto provokes Tobi as the masked man decides to move on with his plan by bringing forth the Benihisago and Sealing Urn.
