Naruto shippuden follows the adventures of three young ninjas from the Leaf Village of Konoha ( Villige Hidden in the Leaf representing the Fire Country) 3 years after the events in the original Naruto.The Huricane Chronicles or Shippuden focus on the plans and actions of the rouge ninja organization called "Akatsuki" ( "Dawn") and of course the unraveling of the title character''s destiny along with the destiny of his best friend''s Sasuke Uchia''s destiny (taking revenge on his brother Itachi who is responsible for the murder of the entire Uchia clan inclduing his mother and father).The most intresting thing as most say in these new series is the bad guy factor represented by "Akatsuki" composed of several Shinobi traitors and deserters to theri origninal ninaja vilage. These shniobi are the following by order of the team they are in (teams of 2):1. Itachi Uchia2. Kisame Hoshigaki3.Konan4.Pain5.Deidara6.Sasori 7.Hidan 8.Kakazu9.Zetsu10.Tobi(Uciha Madara)For the most part of shippuden we experience naruto and his friends vs 2 members of akatsuki at a time ( a team ) with the hero ussualy coming out victorious. In the last realeses of the manga the misteryous Pa(e)in , the so called leader of akatsuki and his connection to Konan his partner and Jareya ( legendary leaf vilalge ninja and master of Naruto and his father) .
This Pein has been to me one of the most intresting characters yet in the manga because everything about him and his past seem to have a connection to Naruto''s destiny and also to his father''s ( The 4th , Yondaime , Minato) . The cool thing about pain is the nobody knows who he realy is and the writers seem to keep this going on forever though . Another wierd thing about the recent plot is the newest akatsuki member Tobi which is later revealed to be the founder of the Uciha clan ( Madara ) this sounding kinda impossible. It is also hinted by Jareya that Madara could be the one responsible for the appearance of 9 tailed beasts(another important story line in the naruto world ). This has been just a part of my sumamry on Naruto Shippuden hope you found it enjoyable .
