Naruto: September 3 Debuts Four “Brand New Episodes”

In the history of anime, few shows have been as popular as Naruto. The anime was able to present a full story, evoke a wide range of feelings in its audience, and serve as an inspiration to many.

The official website announced in early March that the anime will be receiving four “brand-new” episodes to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary. The official date has been set, and the specifics are provided below.

Announcing the September 3 premiere of four all-new episodes of the original Naruto anime, the official Naruto franchise Twitter account.

On September 3, the first four new episodes will be shown live at the Makuhari Messe event arena in Chiba. Only the launch date will reveal the show’s title and substance.

For fans, Naruto is more than just a collection of episodes; it’s a time capsule of experiences and feelings. If these four new episodes were released, it would be like a blast from the past for longtime viewers of the anime.

Remember how completely out of control things got when Studio Pierrot published the ten-minute reanimated movie covering the entirety of Naruto’s story? Think of the excitement this new season would generate.



Masashi Kishimoto created the world of Naruto in his comic series. It first appeared in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump on September 21, 1999, and ran until the November 10, 2014 issue. There are 72 tankōbon volumes of the manga.

In the second half of the anime, titled Naruto Shippuden, an older Naruto tries to rescue his comrade Sasuke while also dealing with the threat posed by the criminal group Akatsuki, which has its sights set on him as part of a larger plot.
