To celebrate the recent theatrical release in Japan of Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie, last week’s issue of SJ Alpha had a special Naruto manga one-shot. But that’s not all! Both the Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals and Naruto Shippuden anime aired episodes commemorating the event!
[Episode 491: Road to Sakura]
Kiba as a cat lover?! Shino as a horticulturist?! Shikamaru as an idiot?!
In the movie, Tobi’s dastardly plan switches the Leaf ninja’s personalities to their complete opposite! In this special episode, Sakura loses her memory, so her friends take on ill-fitting roles to help an amnesiac Sakura recover her memory.
