The Naruto manga series, written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto, is divided in two parts to split the storyline; the second part is simply known as Part II. The plot follows the return of the ninja Naruto Uzumaki to Konohagakure after two and a half years of training and his subsequent efforts to make his best friend, Sasuke Uchiha, return with him and his friends. However, the criminal organization Akatsuki starts hunting Naruto to get the nine-tailed demon fox that is sealed within him.

Part II starts with chapter 245 and is set two and a half years after the conclusion of chapter 238 in Part I. Chapters 239 through 244 form a gaiden set before the Naruto manga and detailing part of Kakashi Hatake's history. All subsequent chapters are considered to be part of the Part II storyline. Naruto is published by Shueisha chapter-by-chapter in Weekly Shōnen Jump and later collected in tankōbon format with various extras. Volume 28, the first volume of Part II, was released on June 3, 2005, while volume 51 was released on April 30, 2010.[1][2]

An anime adaptation of Part II, produced by Studio Pierrot and TV Tokyo, began airing on February 15, 2007 on TV Tokyo under the name Naruto: Shippūden (ナルト 疾風伝?, lit. Naruto: Hurricane Chronicles). These episodes began airing after the end of the original Naruto anime, which had been showing filler episodes in order to widen the plot gap between the anime and the manga.[3]

The English serialization of the Naruto manga is licensed by Viz Media and published in the United States in Shonen Jump. In order to compensate for the gap between the Japanese and English adaptations of the manga, Viz Media announced its "Naruto Nation" campaign, where it would release three volumes a month in the last four months of 2007 in order to close said gap and begin Part II.[4] Part II saw a similar treatment with "Generation Ninja", with Viz releasing eleven volumes between February and April 2009 in order to catch up to the Japanese serialization.[5] Volume 28 was released on March 4, 2008, and volume 48 was released on June 1, 2010.[6][7]
