Naruto Shippuden Plot:

Our protagonist in this story is a boy named Naruto Uzumaki. On the day of Naruto’s birth, a Nine-Tailed Fox suddenly attacked the Village Hidden in the Leaves. In order to save the village, the Fourth Hokage (leader of the village) sacrificed his own life and sealed the powers of the vicious Nine-Tailed Fox inside the newly born Naruto.

In the present, Naruto is an impulsive little knuckle-headed ninja who never gives up hope and always keeps on fighting. Sadly, the people of Naruto’s village hate him because of the beast that lives inside of him, but Naruto plans on changing the minds of everyone by becoming the next Hokage.

5 Places to Watch Naruto Shippuden Online

PLEASE NOTE: This list is only going to mention legal places to watch Naruto Shippuden or Naruto online. It will not include websites where you can watch Naruto for free.

  1. Netflix

Netflix is one of the most popular streaming services of all time, and thankfully, it also lets you watch both Naruto and Naruto Shippuden online. This streaming service has both the dubbed and subbed versions of the anime. Also, when you first join, you can watch everything on the platform for free for the first month.

Like all anime, sometimes Naruto may be only available on Netflix in certain countries. If you log on and can’t find Naruto on your Netflix library, don’t worry! You can get around that problem by using a VPN. I have confirmed that as of the writing of this article Naruto is available on Netflix Canada. So all you have to do is use a VPN to fake a Canada IP address and you’ll be good to go.

How to Watch Naruto on Netflix via VPN

This method works on both desktop PCs and mobile phones or tablets.

Purchase (or start a free trial) of a VPN. I can confirm that ExpressVPN works for this purpose.

In the settings choose Canada as your “Current Location”.

Click the power button to fire up the VPN and wait for it to do its magic

Once you’re connected, navigate to Netflix (browser or app)

Search “Your Name” in the Netflix search bar and you should see Naruto and Naruto Shippuden pop up.

Enjoy! Please note that if your Netflix library doesn’t update to reflect the country you selected in your VPN, you may have to clear the Netflix cache first and try again.

To to do this, go to settings -> apps -> Netflix -> clear cache. I’ve had no trouble using this method and I still use ExpressVPN to watch anime from various Netflix country libraries daily.

Pros:

You can watch anime and other kinds of tv shows and movies on this platform.

You can use Netflix Party to watch anime together with your friends.

You can’t watch anything for free.

Pros:

You can keep each episode that you purchase indefinitely.

Cons:

Very expensive compared to all the other options.
