Naruto Shippuden Brings Back Road to Ninja Movie Characters


Naruto Shippuden Brings Back Road to Ninja Movie Characters
Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie made its debut in Japanese theaters on July 28, 2012. In it, Naruto and Sakura are transported by Tobi into an alternate genjutsu reality where the personalities and circumstances are completely opposite from the world they know. For example, in Road to Ninja, Hinata is bold and provocative, Sasuke is in the village and a smooth-talking playboy, Ino is shy and modest, and Kiba is a cat-lover.

The Naruto Shippuden anime brings back these characters into our lives through a two-episode special next week, September 3rd, as Tenten is transported to the alternate genjutsu reality via Kaguya Otsutsuki’s Infinite Tsukuyomi! As you will see in the preview below, Menma (Naruto’s alternate genjutsu reality counterpart), is in the special as a Hidden Leaf Village ninja so we may be able to assume it takes place after Naruto defeats him in Road to Ninja.

The two episodes as a special are titled Road To Tenten: Into the Dream World, while Naruto Shippuden 427 individually is titled “The World of Dreams”. The title for Naruto Shippuden 428 has not yet been revealed. Take a look at the preview for episode 427 below!

For those that recall 2012 fillers, just before its theatrical release, the Naruto Shippuden anime had a promotional tie-in episode titled Road to Sakura, which featured Sakura Haruno from an alternate reality being transported into the Naruto world we know for a short period of time.
