Adult Swim will be opening the year with a lot of ninjutsu action as it brings back Masashi Kishimoto’s hit ninja anime Naruto Shippuden to their Toonami block today at 12:30 AM ET/PT, with new episodes being released each weekend thereafter.
Toonami will be airing the dubbed and uncut versions of Naruto Shippuden, which will follow the titular ninja, a full two and half years after the original anime series. Upon Naruto’s return, he sees that everything in his beloved village has changed – with his colleagues now being promoted up in ranks, leaving him behind. Of course, he also realizes that Sasuke has never returned from his search for Orochimaru. The series will continue to follow Naruto and his friends as they grow older and stronger, though not necessarily wiser in Naruto’s case.
