    I randomly opened what appears to be the latest Naruto Shippuuden episode on the site I use (ep 441) and I'm seeing Minato debriefing all of the Rookie 9 and their sensei from some sort of mission?

    What's going on here? Has the anime gone full fanfiction?

    2 minutes of Google: anime filler arc based on one of Jiraiya's books, an alternate reality where Naruto's parents didn't die and the Uchiha massacre didn't happen.

    No your just looking at never ending filler. Canon anime ended just as everyone entered the "Infinite Tsukuyomi" at the end of September. According to the recent calendar of episodes it's yet to be determined whether or not we get canon back in January 2016.

    It's the Infinite Tsukuyomi gone mad. Just an endless stream of alternate universes.

    Apparently there's a been a grand total of 9 non-filler episodes this year.

    Is it good fanfiction or bad fanfiction? Because that premise does have the potential for the former.

    Any of them worth watching? Assuming you've already done so? What were their premises?

    Entire year? Since January? How are the tv ratings? Holy shit, the anime Naruto fans must be lapping this shit up. I wouldn't be surprised of an extra year of anime filler. Maybe even after they finally wrap up canon, lmao.

    The filler is about the Jounin senseis being kidnapped by Akatsuki. The 4th Hokage is alive and Tobi has a byakugan. That's where I quit for the forseeable future. Clerith
    So far filler has been coming out since 9/3/2015

    There was a Chuunin Exam filler arc for when the most of the K12 became chuunin but I got bored of that partway through. Haven't touched any other fillers since so I can't say.

    There's been a couple of big announcements today. The first is about the new Boruto manga.

    According to Reddit "Kishimoto will be drawing a one-shot of this manga that will debut in Weekly Shounen Jump this Spring.
    The serialization itself will be done by: Kodachi Ukyou as the writer, and Mikio Ikemoto as the artist. Original Creator, General Supervisor: Kishimoto Masashi.
    It will be a monthly series that will run in Weekly Shounen Jump."
    Here's an example of Ikemoto's art style.

    The second is about an Itachi movie that is being adapted from his spinoff novel.

    I'll be checking both of them out but if the manga isn't interesting I'm dropping it because unlike the original manga I haven't committed several hundred chapters into it.

    Sounds like fun. I hope the Boruto manga reveals a bit more about the other characters who weren't shown in the epilogue.

    I'm a little late, but:

    I actually wrote it ages ago - but now I've posted it! Link.

    It's just an alternate ending to the first chapter, with added lulz.

    I just watched the latest Shippuden episode about Itachi. In some ways it actually reminds me of the better Itachi fan-fictions out there. Anyone else watch it what do you think? It's definitely looking better than the previous filler saga.

    A Naruto one-shot leads to Boruto the series.

    It looks like it should be interesting. However it looks like the new artist is modeling Sasuke after Snape. Despite that I like the new designs for characters so we'll see what happens.

    Orochimaru has a son? Who is the lucky (insane) mother?
