Naruto is back in the Village Hidden in the Leaves, and he has a bunch of training under his belt to show for it. His boost in strength and ninja skill comes just in time, too, because the diabolical Akatsuki are on the move! You can see what goes down as Naruto Shippuden Set 1 brings the timeless saga to Blu-ray! 

With the passing of time comes big moves for some major players, including Gaara, who is now Kazekage of the Village Hidden in the Sand. He’s also the first target of the Akatsuki, so there’s no time wasted as the action of Naruto Shippuden quickly kicks into full gear.

The twisted might of the Akatsuki is on particularly frightening display as Granny Chiyo and Sakura throw down against a member of the group known as Sasori. The conflict grows more and more unpredictable as the nefarious Sasori strikes from afar with his marionettes, and it’s going to take some quick thinking and movement to best him in battle. 

Naruto Shippuden Set 1 includes the first 27 episodes across a four-disc set, presented in the original full frame with English and Japanese audio options. Among the special features are storyboards, clean versions of the opening and ending videos, an art gallery, trailers, the “Return of a Ninja” voice actor featurette and an exclusive art card. You can pave your own ninja way by ordering your copy today!
