Long before episode 471 of "Naruto Shippuden," the events to occur has already been depicted by the fans of the show. Much to their dismay, death flags were indeed raised during the episode.
International Business Times previously reported a spoiler alert for "Naruto Shippuden" episode 721, before it aired last Thursday, August 11. The episode was entitled "The Two of Them... Always," and was expected to show Sasuke, Sakura and Obito returning to the original dimension and engaging in a bloody battle with Kaguya.
True enough, the battle did happen. Based on the manga series and adapted into the anime series, one precious character made an ultimate sacrifice to save the others, Obito. He was one of the protagonists of the series and indeed, during the episode 471 of "Naruto Shippuden," his life was taken.
Obito took a fatal blow to save his warriors and it has been one of the most heroic and classic moves from the manga. According to Enstarz, this episode was one of the finest that Studio Pierrot has come up with in the past few months. Even the fans of the manga series agreed that the interpretation of Obito's death was more impactful than the events that occurred in the manga.
Obito's death was considered to be one of the greatest episodes directed of "Naruto Shippuden" series. The anime soundtrack that accompanied the fatal death of Obito was definitely recognized, when he took that blow to save Naruto, Sasuke and Kakashi.
Episode 471 of "Naruto Shippuden" also resonated the glory days of Naruto and a number of fight sequences that made a great impact to fans of the series. Amidst all what have been considered filler episodes, the quality and goodness of the recent episode has been noticeably great.
In addition to the scene that was already dramatic, the great implementation of it was also highly appreciated even by the fans of the manga series themselves.
