Animators Join Fans In Expressing Excitement For Long Awaited "Naruto" Anime Final Battle

The fight 14 years in the making is here

The anime adaptation of Naruto debuted on October 3, 2002. Two weeks later, on the 17th, we got a good introduction to Sasuke (you might remember an accidental kiss from way back then). Fourteen years later, Naruto and Sasuke will settle their differences in today's Shippuden episode #476/#477 Final Battle.


On social media, animators joined with fans in the exciting build-out to long awaited resolution of the feud.
