Naruto Shippuden continues the story of the Naruto anime - while there is no Naruto Shippuden manga, Naruto Shippuden picks up from the Naruto manga volume twenty-eight and on. After training for two and a half years with Jiraiya, in these Naruto episodes, he returns to Konohagakure, reuniting with the friends he left, and reforming Team 7. Now called Team Kakashi, the missing Sasuke is replaced by Sai. All of Naruto's Classmates have matured and risen in the ranks, but Naruto himself hasn't gained any rank in his years of training. With the Akatsuki organization looming and Sasuke still at large, Naruto Shippuden brings ninja action every week!

Though he succeeds in freeing Son Goku from Tobi's control, receiving a gift from the Four Tails for his compassion, Naruto is upset upon learning the Tailed Beast is still bound to the Gedo Statue. Once Son is sealed back into the Gedo Statue, Tobi has all the other Jinch?riki fully transform into their Tailed Beasts for an all out attack. Silently proud of Naruto's victory of winning Son over, Kurama offers to lend the youth more power. Though annoyed of being thanked for helping Naruto during his encounter with Madara, Kurama suggests melding their chakra together. Declaring Kurama as a friend as he removes the seal, causing their chakra to meld, Naruto assumes a stronger version of his Nine Tails Chakra Mode. 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. He sends clones through Kurama's chakra arms to remove the chakra receivers. 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. Forced to seal the Tailed Beasts back into the Gedo Statue, Tobi tells a reverted Naruto that his victory changes nothing despite the youth insisting that it has after learning a lot of difficult names.
