"Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476 release date will come a week from now. Being the manga series' final episode, fans have mixed emotions about it; sad because the long-running series will be ending and excited at the same time because the next episode promises to be action-packed like no other.

The intense anticipation for the upcoming "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476 among long-time Naruto fans has created a host of speculations about what the last and hopefully the best episode could offer. Being the last fight of the rivals, the two most powerful ninjas are expected to give it their best shot in the coming episode, assuring that it would be the most explosive fight in the entire series.

Sasuke To Severe His Ties From Everything

It appears that in the coming "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476, Sasuke is dead serious in finishing off Naruto. As previously reported by GamenGuide, Sasuke wants to build his own perfect world, a world that will eliminate the conditions that led to the suffering of Itachi and himself.

To be able to do that, there are three things that Sasuke needs to get done in "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476. He needs to eliminate all the five Kages who are currently trapped in the Infinite Tsukuyomi, the destruction of all tailed beasts and more importantly, the elimination of Naruto as he has become the Jinchuuriki for all tailed beast similar to Hagoromo in the past.

To this end, Sasuke has already partially fulfilled his objective, having already trapped all tailed beasts using his Catastrophic Planetary Devastation Technique. The only thing left standing in the way is Naruto. For this reason, Sasuke cannot let any feelings for his former teammate of Kakashi's Team 7 stand in the way. As he said beforehand, killing Naruto is just a necessity; Sasuke will show no mercy and would really fight Naruto with the intent to kill in the coming "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476.

Sasuke Vs Naruto: Who Is More Powerful At The Moment?

But then this begs the question of who among the two combatants is really stronger at the moment. At the start of last episode, it appears that Naruto had the upper hand. Sasuke was alone while Naruto had Sakura, Kakashi and the complete set of all the tailed beasts. At that point, fans could have easily said that Naruto would win in the final battle in "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476.

But as things stand, the balance of power has been restored. Whatever advantage Naruto had at the onset was quickly eliminated by Sasuke. Sasuke demonstrated how powerful he had become by performing an even more powerful multi-sphered version of the Chibaku Tensei effectively sealing all tailed beasts in one stroke. Sakura is tucked away in a genjutsu while Kakashi proved to be too exhausted to be of much help. This means that in the final battle in "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476, it will be a one on one fight between Naruto and Sasuke as it should be.

But Naruto is not exactly a weakling at all. He still has a portion of the chakras of the tailed beasts inside him. Aside from that, he has also mastered how to harness the power of nature by doing the sage mode. All things considered, it would likely be an even match when "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476 release date arrives next week.

Shall One Perish In The Final Battle In 'Naruto Shippuden' Episode 476?

And finally, the question that everyone wants to know. Will one of them die in the final battle in "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476?

The speculations put forth on this topic vary greatly. There are even those who speculate that both would die in the series' final episode, "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476, as in this prediction by News Everyday.

However, there is actually an ongoing spinoff for the Naruto series. Called "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations," it details the trials and adventures of the next generation of ninjas in Konoha such as Boruto, Naruto's offspring and Sarada, Sasuke's daughter with Sakura. In fact both Naruto and Sasuke are alive in the new monthly manga series, which means that neither will perish in their final fight in the upcoming "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476.

'Naruto Shippuden' 476 Release Date

But then again, the only way to be certain is to watch the actual anime when it arrives. Fortunately, it will not be a long wait for fans. "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 476 release date is already slated this coming September 29, 2016. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for updates.
