Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto saga has no shortage of iconic moments, and more can be yours to own in the second Blu-ray set of the Naruto Shippuden anime. Naruto Shippuden Set 2 launches on January 30 and is now available to pre-order, so secure yours and read on for more about what to expect from the next leg of the ninja journey.

The second set of Naruto Shippuden episodes finds Gaara rescued from the clutches of the evil Akatsuki at last, though he’s not out of the woods just yet. Meanwhile, Naruto faces a sudden attack from a seemingly emotionless shinobi named Sai back in the Village Hidden in the Leaves. Complicating matters further, he learns that Sai has been assigned to be his new teammate, and the new Team Kakashi sets out on a spying mission in Orochimaru’s lair.

It’s there that Naruto comes face-to-face with his old rival and teammate, Sasuke, who has since become his hot-blooded enemy. What will happen when the two meet again, and what other conflicts loom on the horizon in this world of ever-heightening stakes?

Naruto Shippuden Set 2 includes episodes 28-55 across four Blu-ray discs, presented in 1080p in the original full frame, with both the English dub and the original Japanese audio with English subtitles. The special features are loaded, including an exclusive double-sided full color art card, episode 273 storyboards, clean versions of the opening and ending videos, an art gallery, double-sided cover and a voice actor featurette spotlighting Ben Diskin (Sai), Johnny Yong Bosch (Sasori), Troy Baker (Pain), Mary-Elizabeth Baker (Tsunade) and Roger Craig Smith (Deidara).
