Episode 447 of "Naruto Shippuden" will be aired on Thursday, 4 February, and there is still no end in sight for the filler episodes. In the previously aired Episode 446 titled "Collision" Naruto and Sasuke fought each other, but it still did not bring an end to the "Jiraiya Ninja Scrolls" as fans had hoped.

As of "Collision," Sasuke has awakened the Mangekyō Sharingan, which is an advanced form of the Sharingan. Awakened only by a handful of Uchiha, they are said to be "tenjō no kotowari o shōakuseshi hitomi," which is translated to "heavenly eyes that see the truth of all of creation without obstruction."

As "Naruto Shippuden" viewers know, Sasuke had sent a Fire Release jutsu and used a Kirin against Naruto in the battlefield. However, Sasuke's brother Itachi threw himself into his younger brother's attack and was killed. It is the trauma of his brother's death that caused the awakening of Mangekyō Sharingan in Sasuke.

Although the current plot is quite interesting, most hardcore Naruto fans are tired of the fillers, and dubbing "Niraiya Ninja Scrolls" as "Narutoception." Another fan, BakerPlays, mocked the trend by commenting, "Naruto Shippuden Episode 7821: Jiraiya Ninja Scrolls: Road to Tenten the Prequel 3."

However, it has been confirmed that these filler episodes will end in March, and in another few weeks, the "Naruto Shippuden" will return to the Naruto cannon.

In the coming episode, Pain will be seen attacking the leaf village, meaning "Another Moon" will feature a fight between Naruto and Pain, much to the annoyance of fans.

"So naruto about to beat all six pains who have the f**king rinnegan but he can't defeat sasuke. Does anyone see a problem with that," asks Kameron Brown. Ashleigh Namikaze responded to this saying, "Oh I see thousands of problems with that xD Sasuke don't even have the rennisharingan yet lmao! I think the logic is non logical anymore."

Watch Season 19 Episode 447 of "Naruto Shippuden" at 7:30 pm (JST) on Thursday, 4 February, via TV Tokyo. You can also watch "Collision" online via jpPlayerNaruspot and Crunchyroll.
