Naruto Itachi Shinden Anime Announced


The Naruto franchise has netted another announcement by way of Jump Festa 2016, as it has been revealed that the Itachi Shinden spin-off novels (part of the Naruto Shinden series) is slated for an anime adaptation, certain to generate acclaim from the anti-hero’s legion of obsessed fans.

The announcement had caused surprise as the first novel was released only a few months ago in September, the anime possibly being a result of its success; the anime will be known as “Naruto: Shippuuden – Itachi Shinden-hen ~Hikari to Yami~” and will focus on Itachi Uchiha’s tragic past, bound to be rife with both hardship and questionable actions.

Whether or not “Sasuke Shinden” will eventually accompany the Itachi Shinden adaptation is not known, but considering the franchise’s abject refusal to end, it seems all but inveitable.

Naruto: Shippuuden – Itachi Shinden-hen ~Hikari to Yami~ will air in spring of 2016.
