"Master and Student" (師弟, Shitei) is episode 151 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
Naruto Episode 151
With Tento safe and Shojoji behind bars, Ikkyu and Tento (who's sworn to work hard and become someone worthy of supporting his father) head home. While seeing them off, Boruto returns the rare card that Tento gifted him in the previous episode, which is revealed to be a vintage Sasuke. While being interrogated, Shojoji reveals to Sasuke that the mark on Boruto's hand is a symbol of a secret organization called Kara. Although he claims he doesn't know too much about them, it's pretty clear that even a villain as fearsome as Shojoji is afraid of these mysterious figures.
Boruto Naruto Next Generations Episode 151 update is Sunday, 5 April 2020, at 5:30 PM JST. Note that the time is in Japanese standard time, so you might want to convert it to your local time if you want to get the episode immediately after its release.
"Naruto Shippuden" is a complex anime masterpiece where one dynamic story arc leads to another, coming together to create Naruto's compelling hero's journey. The series starts off with the criminal organization Akatsuki making big moves to take down the jinchuriki hosts of the legendary tailed beastscon. It winds through Naruto getting next-level powerful and joining his friends for the future of humanity in the Fourth Great Shinobi War. Still, any anime that makes it to 500 episodes is going to have some filler.
Filler is a necessary evil to keep your favorite anime on the air long enough to tell the full story from its source manga. Masashi Kishimoto, artist and creator of the "Naruto" manga, worked insane hours to churn out compelling comics regularly. Still, given the low cost and efficient process for making anime, at some point a given series will probably get ahead of its source material. This is why long-running shows like "Naruto" and "Naruto Shippuden" create episodes that aren't canon and add little to nothing to the storyline.
Before we say anything else, the canon episodes of "Naruto Shippuden" are 1-27, 29-56, 72-90, 113-143, 152-169, 172-175, 197-222, 243-256, 261-270, 272-278, 282-283, 296-302, 321-346, 362-375, 378-388, 391-393, 414-415, 417-421, 424-426, 451-463, 469-479, and 484-500.
These episodes are taken directly from the manga, centered on Naruto's progression toward achieving his destiny alongside his colleagues from Konoha and the other hidden villages, as well as his longstanding alliance with his original teammates Sakura and Sasuke. This is the bildungsroman of Naruto as completed in "Naruto Shippuden." The original "Naruto" series began with him as a troublemaker and weak student shinobi. "Naruto Shippuden" ends with him as the most powerful shinobi on the planet, with various evolutionary forms he can turn on when the battle really heats up. At the beginning, Naruto is a hated troublemaker; by the end, he's the world's savior. If you want to watch the bare minimum of episodes, these are absolutely not to be missed.
Many of these episodes are standalones or mini-arcs with no relevance to the storyline, some flashbacks to young Naruto and his friends going on some silly, pointless adventure. There's a drawn-out arc of Naruto and Yamato being seasick (at some point, Naruto's clones turn on him) as they head to Naruto's training with Killer B. One, Episode 271, only exists as a sort of advertisement for "Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie," and it should be added that none of the movies are canon, though they can be fun.
These filler episodes add nothing to the story and, in general, aren't worth watching. In fact, as some of these drag, on you'll often find yourself just wanting to jump forward to watching the canon episodes.
These "Naruto Shippuden" episodes have good stories and introduce some cool new abilities. We see a Land of Fire monastery full of formidable fighters, and any ninja story with legendary fighting monks is always awesome. (Just watch the old Shaw Brothers kung fu movies.) Several Akatsuki members show their power in wiping out some extremely powerful monks to collect bounties on them, including one monk with a jutsu, the Welcoming Approach: Thousand-Armed Murder, that looks like later jutsu involving manifesting powerful larger beings. (Hashirama's Sage Art Wood Release: True Several Thousand Hands specifically comes to mind.)
Plus, these episodes present the idea that a warrior can possess some tailed-beast chakra and still get the benefits. The fact that part of a tailed beast's chakra can reside inside somebody and turn them into a partial jinchuriki, even giving that person a tailed-beast cloak, will come in to play later.
There are plenty of elements that play into the canon. One is the introduction of the fact that there are Orochimaru compounds full of powerful shinobi, all of whom possess unique and, in some cases, truly frightening jutsu. There's a compelling story about how even an "evil" Orochimaru disciple can change for the love of another. We see the Three-Tails for a few episodes, more than any other time in the series. And we see the Four-Corner Sealing Barrier being used on a tailed beast, which will have a huge role towards the climax of the Fourth Great Shinobi War.
The beginning and end of most of these episodes show the villagers working together to rebuild the Village Hidden in the Leaves. Yet in between the open and close, we get mostly flashbacks. Many of these center on Naruto and how the individual shinobi rebuilding the village remembered the troublemaker years ago, and how proud they are of the shinobi he's become. None of the episodes make any changes or have any real bearing on the story, though they are fun, and again, the beginning and end of each episode is part of the main story.
Episodes 288 and 289 also connect to the story. Analogous to Episode 284, in 288, Kakashi and Might Guy have to fight and seal up other reanimated Legendary Swordsmen of the Mist. In Episode 289, they have to fight yet another reanimated Legendary Swordsman. These episodes are strong and fit into the current story so well that you might not even identify them as filler if you don't know.
Again, here's a run you can mostly skip, but there are a few episodes in this filler stretch you'd want to watch. Specifically, you should check out Episodes 303 through 305, 307, 308, and 317 before moving back into the canon episodes at 321.
For episodes 303 to 305, the Sound Village Four are reanimated for a rematch against the Hidden Leaf shinobi who had originally fought them in "Naruto." Not only is this worth watching for the rematch, with the Leaf shinobi now considerably stronger, but it also it explores the idea of how friends can be sealed off from each other and fight their way back. Episodes 307 and 308 are about another reanimation with deep emotional ties to the person he's fighting (a theme throughout this war being these painful reunions), as is Episode 317. Plus, both are centered on former Leaf Village Shinobi fighting current ones.
This is a short filler run of three pretty amusing episodes, so you might as well watch them. Episode 388 shows Gaara working with his former tailed beast, Shukaku, and rallying the other tailed beasts to join them in helping Naruto. Seeing a former jinchuriki pleading with his former tailed beast is extremely entertaining.
Again, these episodes don't necessarily add much to the canon story, though they are worth watching. And it's just a short handful of episodes, anyway, so in this case, just let the "Naruto Shippuden" binge ride.
Yes, these episodes aren't from the manga, so they're not canon. But they also give additional exposition about the Otsutsuki clan. Obviously, the introduction of these great otherworldly deific beings changed the direction of "Naruto Shippuden," taking the deepest truths of the shinobi world to an absolutely unforeseen place. Without giving away too much about the Otsusuki clan, let's suffice it to say that their story and its importance to the current "Shippuden" shinobi is similar to the creation stories in many of the great world religions.
Since we learn so much about the main characters of the series, from Naruto and Sasuke to even Hashirama and Madara, it's a good thing to get as much Otsutsuki beta as possible, especially since they not only founded the shinobi world but, at this point, are threatening to destroy it. These five filler episodes are definitely worth watching. 041b061a72
