The filler episodes 485 and 486 of "Naruto Shippuden" are nearing its climactic conclusion. In Episodes 485 and 486, Sasuke Uchiha continues his journey to atonement. Up next for "Naruto Shippuden" is the story arc for Shikamaru, widely regarded as the smartest shinobi in The Hidden Leaf Village.
As previously reported by Jobs & Hire, "Naruto Shippuden" episode 485, titled "Coliseum" Sasuke Uchiha continues his investigation about the "detonating men." Following the events of episode 484, Sasuke finds himself searching for an arms dealer named Oyashiro. Aided by former mentor Orochimaru, the pair of former rouge shinobis proceeded to an island wherein shinobi battles each other for the amusement of rich people.
Having no other choice, Sasuke enters the field and eventually won his battle over Oyashiro's fighters. Defeated, Oyashiro concedes that the leader of the Lightning Group is known as Fūshin. With valuable information now on hand, Sasuke freed every shinobi in the Coliseum.
In "Naruto Shippuden" episode 486, iTech Post reports that Sasuke persuades Oyashiro to reveal information about Fūshin, the Lightning Group leader. Based on the information Sasuke got from Oyashiro, Sasuke proceeded to look for Fūshin that led him on a deserted island.
Once on the island, a mysterious figure attacked Sasuke. Using his Sharingan, Sasuke figures that the attacker is a Genjutsu user and is able to fend off the attack. However, Sasuke feels another presence in the vicinity and he concludes that the Genjutsu user behind the "Detonating Men" is near.
Outnumbered, Sasuke squares off with the Kiri shinobis. In the ensuing battle, reinforcements would arrive to help out Sasuke, freeing the Sharingan user to face the probable mastermind behind the attacks against the Hidden Leave Village and other towns.
