  • As Yakumo's Genjutsu continues to take over, what will become of everyone in the end of this filler arc?

    Just as Kiba is engulfed in flames, Naruto hurries over to put the illusionary fire out. Meanwhile, Yakumo still has Kurenai trapped in her Genjutsu, and threatens to kill her if she doesn't tell the truth about what really happened to her parents, as well as what the Third Hokage ordered Kurenai to do. Using Shadow Clones to beat himself up so he doesn't feel the effects of the illusion, Naruto charges into the flames to the alternate dimension where Kurenai and Yakumo are. Back outside, Kiba rushes over to where Sakura, Gai and Unkai are, and explains what's going on inside.

    Unkai then decides to tell Sakura, Gai and Kiba what really happened, and tells the story of how the real reason Yakumo's parents died in the fire, was because of the demon inside of her. Already knowing this story, Naruto tries to explain it to Yakumo herself, but Kurenai doesn't want that to happen. Though it's too late; the memories of what really happened that day her parents were killed bubbles up to the surface of Yakumo's mind. She comes to the conclusion that it was herself that killed her parents, despite Kurenai's cries that it wasn't. Not able to bare it, Yakumo attempts suicide, thrusting her blade towards her heart... But is stopped by something in the painting in front of her. The something begins to emerge, filled with hate... the something that is the demon called "Id".

    What exactly is this horrible demon? And what will become of Naruto, Kurenai, Yakumo, and everyone else? You'll have to watch this suspenseful conclusion to the Yakumo Arc to find out!

    An excellent ending to this filler arc, and it was really great to see more screen time for Kurenai. Yakumo was definitely an interesting filler character, too. Next Time: The Weight of the Prized Artifact!
