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!

Despite Hiruzen's misgivings, Danzo persuades the Leaf Council to side with his decision to have the Uchiha put under 24-7 surveillance on the grounds that their sharingan makes them the likely cause for the Nine-Tails' attack on Konoha years ago. While Kakashi is not fond of this decision, he learns from Itachi that his clan is already aware that they are under suspicion. Members of the Leaf Military Police Force become more and more belligerent in their duties despite Fugaku's efforts and the complaints from the citizens soon reach the ears of the higher-ups who seem determined to increase pressure on the clan against the Third Hokage's better judgement. Elsewhere, a team of Hidden Mist ninja under Ao are forced to retreat when they realize they are facing Shisui Uchiha. Reporting of his team's success to the council, Shisui requests a private meeting with Hiruzen to gain his permission to act on his own to resolve the suspicion on the Uchiha. Meeting up with Itachi, revealing that their kinsmen had tasked him to keep an eye on Itachi since losing their trust, Shisui tells him of his intent to stop the planned coup d'état by using his Kotoamatsukami on Fugaku in order to dissuade the clan from their actions. However, Danzo is skeptic of the plan and attacks Shisui with the intent to use the Uchiha's eyes in his own way to protect the village. While effortlessly subduing Danzo at first, Shisui is caught off-guard by the older ninja's Izanagi. Escaping with only his left eye, seeing that it is too late to enact his plan, Shisui meets up with Itachi and gives him his eye. After having Itachi promise to protect both their village and their clan's good name, Shisui commits suicide with Itachi's Mangekyo Sharingan manifesting as a result. As things between the village and the Uchiha worsen, Itachi contemplates what course of action to take to honor his friend's last wishes.
