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 increasing number of assignments, Danz? appoints Itachi to the rank of captain. Koharu voices her concern at Itachi's promotion, as does Homura. Kakashi warns Itachi not to get involved in any of the political problems of the higher-ups: the latter thanks Kakashi for all his assistance over the last two years. In the Third Training Ground, Tenz? also voices concern for the promotion, but is stopped as Y?gao appears and informs them that she is the replacement in the team. Elsewhere, Itachi informs Danz? that dissatisfaction is beginning to run high within the other members of the Uchiha clan. Back in the Hokage Residence, Hiruzen informs Kakashi that an intruder is entering the village undetected and bypassing the barrier code: in an attempt to find out who it is, Hiruzen tasks Kakashi with exploring all barrier placements to find out more. Within the Uchiha district, a masked man appears to examine the rock, before exiting through a warp portal. In the Academy, Guy watches on at the young students, when Kakashi appears and asks him to come with him. The pair walk through the Uchiha district, where Kakashi notices a change in the atmosphere of the clan members, as if they did not want outsiders there. Elsewhere, Itachi reports to Danz? that the Uchiha intend on revolting. Later, Itachi asks the masked man for assistance and annihilates the clan. The Anbu, being too late for preventing the tragedy, instead are tasked with clearing up the field. At the same time, Itachi gives a warning to Danz? not to harm his younger brother or confidential information would be leaked to every enemy nation. Before leaving, he asks for a secret meeting with Hiruzen, which talks about his forward intention and his brother's future. Hiruzen decides not to change the barrier code and permits Itachi to enter the village at any point if he is worried for Sasuke's wellbeing. Later, Kakashi is told of his change to become a teacher and that his time in the Anbu is now over.
