It's going to be a bittersweet experience for the Naruto Shippuden fans because of its finale and the upcoming new series, "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" that is about to begin in a few weeks. Check out the recap of the last few episodes.
The previous episodes of "Naruto Shippuden" talked about the wedding of Naruto and Hinata. It can be recalled that in episode 497, everyone is looking for the perfect gift for the couple including Gaara who is trying hard to look for the best gift. He then realized that his presence as a friend is already a good gift for them but it was not revealed if he plans to give something else.
Episode 498 is another quest for the perfect gift episode but here Kiba and Shino are on the run to look for their present for the soon to be a married couple. It's a good thing that they opted to buy the special wine upon the suggestion of Kurenai.
However, in the recent 499 episode, Ikura still can't decide if he will give a congratulatory message to Naruto and Hinata. It was also here that Hinata was dismayed because she learned that some of the invited guests might not be able to come.
Hinata overheard them discussing on the mission Kakashi sent them out to do, iTech Post reported. She was touched but sad to hear the news. She even went to talk to Kakashi that she is willing not to continue with the wedding reception because of this. But Kakashi changed her mind.
Kakashi was confronted by the younger ninjas and told him they will attend the wedding and will just go on scheduled duties. Luckily, Lady Tsunade informed Kakashi to allow the invited guests to attend Naruto and Hinata's wedding.
He said that the rules were too old and the war is over so it's ok to forget about the rules. It was the only time that Kakashi changed his mind and went to Gaara to ask a favor to provide shinobis to be their guard on duty while they attend the wedding and they agreed.
Every follower of Naruto Shippuden is tuned in to what's going to happen in the next episode. They know that the wedding itself will be the highlight of the series' ending.
According to Droid Report, the Weekly Shonen Jump on their last episode provided a hint that Naruto Shippuden will end on March 23. Although there was no confirmation, the key indicator suggests that indeed, it will. The article reports that Comicbook mentioned that the rivalry of Naruto nd Sasuke has already ended.
