"Naruto Shippuden" Episode 484 air date is almost here. Fans are looking forward to the next arc to be introduced in coming episode after the brief boyhood arc that bridged the gap between the events of the original Naruto manga's finale and what is considered new territory for the long-running anime series. For those who might have missed them, here is a brief rundown on what to expect in "Naruto Shippuden" Episodes 484 and 485.

New Arc Has Plenty Of Material For A Sasuke-Themed December

Fans must have been delighted to learn that the anime series did not end with the epic battle between Naruto and Sasuke, which was the end of the parent Naruto manga. While the brief boyhood arc felt like a filler, the upcoming arc to be started by "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 484 and 485 will definitely be longer and more action-packed.

The upcoming arc will be sourced from the Naruto book that was launched back in 2015 titled "Sasuke's Story: Sunrise." While it is still unclear how many episodes the 224-page book could be turned into, Saiyan Island estimates that the new arc based on the book may contain around four episodes starting with "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 484.

New Arc Will Just Be One Of The Many?

In fact, there are indications that the anime series might go well beyond 2017, a comforting thought for those who are still unwilling to part with the well-loved series. Aside from the new arc that will start with "Naruto Shippuden" Episode 484 and 485, there are speculations that the anime series will eventually touch the Boruto storyline by mid 2017. While still unconfirmed, it is a good indication of continuity since the Boruto manga is still ongoing.
