List of Naruto chapters (Part II, volumes 49–72)

The box cover with the front showing Naruto, and the right side Sakura.
The cover of the third box set of the Naruto manga, the second, and final half of the Part II storyline.

The plot of the Naruto manga series, written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto, is divided in two; the second part is known as Part II.[1][2] The series is about the eponymous character Naruto Uzumaki who wants recognition and respect from the fellow villagers, and to become the Hokage, the leader of Konohagakure. Part II, set two-and-a-half years after the conclusion of Part I, follows the return of the ninja Uzumaki to Konohagakure from two-and-a-half years of training. As he returns, he continues his goal of convincing his best friend Sasuke Uchiha to return with him and his other friends back to Konohagakure.

Naruto was published in individual chapters by Shueisha in Weekly Shōnen Jump and later collected in tankōbon format with extra content. The manga series was first published in issue 43 of 1999, with Part II beginning in issue 19 of 2005.[1] Volume 49 was published on January 4, 2010, and the final volume, 72, was published on February 4, 2015.[3][4]

An anime adaptation of Part II, produced by Studio Pierrot and TV Tokyo, premiered on February 15, 2007, on TV Tokyo as Naruto: Shippuden (NARUTO -ナルト- 疾風伝, Naruto: Shippūden, literally, Naruto: Hurricane Chronicles). The episodes began airing immediately after the end of the original Naruto anime, which had been showing filler episodes to widen the plot gap between the anime and the manga.[5]

The English version (serialization) of the Naruto manga, licensed by Viz Media, is published in North America in the Weekly Shonen Jump digital magazine[6] and was originally serialized in the defunct monthly Shonen Jump print magazine. English-language trade volumes are published digitally and in print on Viz Media's Viz Manga website. To compensate for occasional gaps between the manga's Japanese and English adaptations, Viz Media has periodically published several volumes in a short period of time.[2][7] Volume 49 was published in English on October 5, 2010, and volume 72 on October 6, 2015.[8][9] The third box set containing the volumes from the second half of Part II was released in the United States by Viz Media on January 5, 2016.[10]

When he receives Kisame's information, Madara sends Kabuto Yakushi (who is allied with Akatsuki) to capture Bee and Naruto. They are too well-defended, so Kabuto kidnaps Yamato.

  10. "It Doesn't Matter to Me" (どうでもいいんだよ "Dōdemo iinda yo")
Naruto destroys Tobi's mask, revealing his identity as Obito Uchiha (one of Kakashi's teammates, believed to have died in the previous war). After defeating the five Kages, Madara comes to Obito's assistance. It is learned that several years earlier, an elderly Madara found Obito's severely-wounded body and saved his life. Obito sought rehabilitation to rejoin his team, and learned that Kakashi and Rin were in danger. When he found them, Obito saw Kakashi kill Rin while they were surrounded by enemies. Obito saved Kakashi and began sharing Madara's goal of a illusionary world so the "cycles of the world" could be broken. As Madara died, Obito adopted his name and manipulated Nagato to create Akatsuki and capture the nine-tailed beasts required to reach his goal.

The First Hokage, Hashirama Senju, tells Sasuke that during his childhood the Senju and Uchiha clans were at war and he met Madara in secret. Sharing the objective of a world without war, Hashirama and Madara became friends. However, they were found by their clans and became leaders (and enemies) in the war. After years of fighting, Madara accepted Hashirama's proposal to end the war and Konoha was created; however, the two clans' hatred resulted in Madara abandoning Konoha. Madara kept attacking the village until he was apparently killed by Hashirama. Realizing that Hashirama and Itachi shared the same dreams, Sasuke accompanies Orochimaru, Taka and the Hokages to the battlefield.

As Team 7 returns to their world, the Hokage and Obito bid them farewell and depart for the afterlife as Madara dies of his injuries. Before he and Naruto can undo the illusion, Sasuke reveals his intention to murder the Kage and Naruto (canceling the Infinite Tsukiyomi with the captured Tailed Beasts and killing them as well). Sasuke explains his intention to begin a worldwide revolution to reform the ninja system, which Naruto forbids. Sasuke knocks Sakura out to keep her from interfering, and he and Naruto agree to settle things at the Valley of the End (where their conflict began). The battle ends with both ninja losing their dominant arms and Sasuke's redemption by Naruto. After Sakura saves them from bleeding to death, Naruto and Sasuke cancel the Infinite Tsukiyomi. Kakashi becomes the Sixth Hokage and pardons Sasuke, who decides to travel the world. Several years later, with a new arm and married to Hinata, Naruto (now the Seventh Hokage) attends the Five Kage Summit in Konoha after dealing with the antics of his son, Boruto Uzumaki.
