New Naruto Shippuden Backstory Arc to Star Kakashi
Fans of Konoha’s famous copy ninja will have something to look forward to in February, as VIZ has just announced that Kakashi will be getting some serious screen time in an upcoming Kakashi-oriented flashback story arc in Naruto Shippuden.
Titled Kakashi: Shadow of the ANBU Black Ops, the special will delve deep into Kakashi’s intriguing past during his time as a member of the mysterious ANBU organization. There are no details provided yet, February 2014 is right around the corner so we imagine that we don’t have to wait too long.
Personally, the Kakashi-centric special is very timely as we feel that Team 7’s instructor hasn’t been given much time under the spotlight lately, with his scenes with Obito (spoiler for non-manga readers?) largely looking unimportant compared to what else is happening in the battlefield.
