With the tale of Jiraiya coming to its gallant and tragic conclusion, the story of Naruto Shippuden continues next week with the long-awaited clash between the Uchiha brothers, Sasuke and Itachi! The episode promises to reveal the secrets behind the slaughter of the Uchiha clan and why Itachi did it, and just may widen the gap between Sasuke and Naruto.
Sasuke's long awaited battle with Itachi begins with the Uchiha brothers throwing genjutsu after genjutsu at each other. Sasuke seems to have Itachi cornered and asks him a few questions of the Uchiha massacre. Is Itachi not the only one involved in the Uchiha massacre? And does Sasuke still not possess enough hatred to defeat Itachi?
The episode will air on November 5th, and will be simulcast exclusively from the online media streaming site Crunchyroll for a week. After the week, the show will become available for free on Hulu.
