I bet Shueisha asked Kishimoto about him and he was like "Who? Oh, that guy? Just put him in the special you're planning, this should be enough for fans, I don't know how could he be useful to manga's action right now"


Haha cannot agree more! :D

Ohhh, I like those characters especially Minato and Itachi :D

I really like back stories, especially if I like the character so this is really awesome :3

Those characters.. Too bad, no Jiraiya ):
Yeah too bad. There are Hiruzen but no Jiraiya.

Yeah there is nothing we can do about it, it's Kakashi's story after all, and Jiraiya is not related to the Anbu in any way.

Isn't this supposed to be in the naruto shippuuden discussion forums?

Hey, Yamato! I almost forgot he existed.

Dec 5, 2013 1:42 AM by mitch3315

WOW, finally some Yamato! Could it be that he is still remembered by the authors?
Anyway I'm totally in, I watch everything related to Naruto either way. And the Anbu story sounds good, Kakashi Gaiden has been done really well, still one of my favourites.

Awesome, some more Kakashi is always appreciated.

Some of the greatest Naruto characters will be making an appearance as well. Minato and Itachi ftw

Maybe we will get to see what his face looks like! :D Doubt it though.

Looking forward to it. Any special featuring Kakashi is always good.

Hopefully we won't get trolled.
Admit it. Even if that episode is random it still funny and pissing off at the same time.

I remember when I saw Kakashi Gaiden awhile ago and was actually quite decent for two part episode that included Obito Uchiha, Rin, Minato etc. So yeah, I guess I'll look forward to this.
