Season 20 episode 471 of "Naruto Shippuden," which will be aired by TV Tokyo on Thursday, Aug. 11, will most likely show the death of Kakashi, along with that of another beloved character. The ongoing fierce battle between Naruto and friends, and Kaguya is the cause of this death.
The upcoming episode, titled "The Two of Them... Always," is expected to see Sasuke, Sakura, and Obito, who had crossed through the opening created by Obito's Kamui, returning to the original dimension. With their return, yet another bloody battle against Kaguya will be waged.
The first wielder of chakra on Earth will have an upper hand over all of them and to balance things out Kakashi is expected to take some extreme measures, thereby protecting the trio. However, one of the saddest moments of the entire season is expected to play put when Naruto's clone Obito dies.
The promo for the upcoming episode shows Obito's eyes bleeding and most fans are mentally preparing themselves to cry on Thursday. Check out some of their reactions on YouTube after watching the preview:
