Naruto Anime to Return to Manga Storyline After Kakashi Filler Arc

This coming February, the Naruto Shippuden anime will be featuring a new story arc that delves into Kakashi’s backstory. Titled ‘Kakashi: Shadow of the ANBU Black Ops,’ the arc will focus on the copy ninja’s time as part of the elite unit, as well as the things he had to do that was never discussed in the main anime arc.

As for the anime’s plans after the Kakashi backstory arc, director Hayato Date told a fan via Twitter that they will be returning to the manga storyline after the filler arc, and will possibly continue for the rest of the year. There’s no danger of the anime catching up to the manga, as the manga’s storyline is currently 56 chapters ahead of the anime.
