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!
these series ended on there terms, some of these finales were epic and will forever go down in tv history as amazing. and some were absolutely trash (cough, castle, cough, cough). but all in all they got to run there course which is all any writer/tv fan wants closure
