Two years later, having been restored to its complete self with its other half, Kurama is shown willing to fight alongside Naruto both from within his subconscious and alongside the shinobi as two separate entities.
The “Konoha Hiden” arc features seven episodes in total, with the ensuing finale showcasing the show’s preeminent characters—the Konoha 11—scrambling to juggle time between fulfilling their duties and finding a present for the soon-to-be hitched couple.The original Naruto series, meanwhile, has been on air since 2002, followed by the lead’s adolescent years in the sequel Naruto Shippuden in 2007.Though angry at Minato's chakra imprint at first once learning of their relation and that it was his own father who sealed Kurama inside of him, Naruto quickly got over his anger and expressed pride in being the Fourth Hokage's son.Naruto would later fight alongside his reincarnated father against the Ten-Tails during the war where Minato not only became proud of how far his son had come as a shinobi, but was also reminded so much of how he was fighting alongside Kushina, moving him to tears of joy.After delighting audiences for the past 15 years, the hit anime has finally caught up with its manga predecessor, which ended last December.
According to manga-themed news outlet Go Boiano, the final episode entitled “Konoha Hiden: The Perfect Day for a Wedding” will highlight the days leading to the wedding of the titular character Naruto and the love of his life, Hinata.Despite audibly reproaching him for making such a claim, Kurama nevertheless had developed a level of respect for Naruto and his determination, even noting that he was different from the humans it had previously encountered, therefore allowing Naruto to utilise the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode without consequence.Kurama then intentionally aided Naruto when the reincarnated Madara was fighting against one of Naruto's shadow clones and the Fourth Division, saying it would rather choose Naruto than be manipulated by the Uchiha again.With his mother and B's help, Naruto managed to best Kurama in combat and take most of its chakra.During the start of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kurama tried instil doubt into Naruto by telling him that shouldering the hatred of an entire war was futile and reminding him of his failure to save Sasuke from revenge, but Naruto refuted with brimming confidence that regardless of the odds, he would still find a way to do something about them, before the young shinobi promised to someday resolve the fox's own hatred as well.When Naruto successfully freed Son Gokū from Obito's control, Kurama finally became convinced of Naruto's word and offered to meld its chakra with his as a coalition, to which the young shinobi then removed the seal that restrained it and happily acknowledged the fox as his teammate from Konohagakure.
