About 525 chapters later, we have the more mellow Gaara fighting the Edo-Tensei of Kage Gengetsu Hozuki, concluding the Edo-Kage part of the storyline.

OPENING: "If" By Daisuke
CLOSING: "Goodbye Memory" By 7!!! Seven Oops​

Last time on NARUTO SHIPPUDEN
Naruto's clone faces off against the Edo-Tensei of the Third Raikage. Although losing his Kyuubi Mode cloak, Naruto2 is able to force the invulnerable Raikage into harming himself, leading to his sealing.

Please no spoilers. Edo-Gengetsu is no longer courteous to such behavior.

Finally took care of that Mizukage. Mu wasn't fully sealed and no one knows. Ulp. Summon who? Can't be good...

Episode 302: Terror! The Steam Imp
Adapted from Naruto Chapters 557-558

Lord First
It is revealed that the Onohki that Edo-Gengetsu shot was actually a sand clone strategically switched with the real Tsuchikage during the destruction of his Clam.

Edo-Gengetsu implements the Steam Imp, the Infinite Explosion Jutsu known by the Mizukage. It is a doppelganger with the surface of oil and the interior of water. The oil heats up, causing the water to vaporize into a steam explosion.

Gaara uses gold dust from his father’s previous attack to encage the Steam Imp and cool it down to stable conditions.

Last appearance of Edo-Gengetsu Hozuki, sealed up by the Sand Mausoleum. This ends the Edo-Kage arc.

It is revealed Edo-Mu had fragmented himself, splitting himself into two versions of himself. One got sealed up (almost confessing his condition), while the other hides and becomes mind-controlled by Kabuto to unleash his secret Edo-Tensei.

The Plot Thickens…

It is confirmed that Naruto2 is a clone.

Edo-Gengetsu goes from being cooperative to attacking his opponents as a way to test their mettle.

Kabuto considers Edo-Mu’s power-depletion from his fragmentation will mean it will take more time for him to summon the secret Edo-Tensei.

Love, Family, and Friendship
Edo-Gengetsu compliments Gaara, seeing his potential. He later compliments Naruto and Gaara’s friendship.

Remember When (or Not)
A flashback of Gaara’s Spy-Eye dispersing sand to carry Onohki to safety and create a clone in his place.

Edo-Gengetsu remembers Edo-Raza wielding gold dust.

Gaara explains how he got gold dust into the Steam Imp.

Naruto and Onohki defeating Edo-Mu is recollected, with the added scene of Edo-Mu secretly fragmenting himself.

But in the Manga…
Gaara’s switcheroo was strictly exposition in the Manga.

The chapter features two Konoha Ninja who make commands and comments. One has black hair. The other has blond hair (he’s the one who locates Edo-Gengetsu). The Anime has the black haired Ninja make the commands and comments.

The Manga has the Konoha Ninja locate Edo-Gengetsu, then Steam Imp knocking down or repelling Ninja. The Anime reverses this order.

The Anime adds the final tag sealing of Edo-Gengetsu Mausoleum prison.

The Anime adds Kabuto considering unleashing the Edo-Sound Quartet.

The Anime extends Onohki’s conversation with Temari. When Temari canonically refers to the Tsuchikage as an old man, Onohki snaps back, until Sari and Matsuri grab him and carry him to the medics. He breaks his back again.

The Anime adds a montage of the map of the Ninja world, with Naruto’s clones moving to each station of the Alliance. This is highlighted by scenes of the gang:

-At the Medic Camp, Sakura and Shizune deal with the decision to prohibit any more wounded to ward off any WZI.

-First Company, Shikamaru tries to think of a way to recognize the WZI. Meanwhile, Tenten is looking for the Bansho Fan.

-Second Company, Hinata and Neji remind each other of the Zetsu. Neji finds his Byakugan still blurry.

-Third Company, Kakashi is reported about Edo-Pakura and Edo-Gari still on the loose. Kakashi also considers they still have two more Edo-Swordsmen (Mangeko Hozuki and Fuguki Suizakan) to fight.

Considering there won't be any SHIPPUDEN this week, I'll comment here:

20 years ago, the 36th Chapter of NARUTO was published on July 3, 2000, introducing to readers Neji, Rock Lee, Tenten, Kotetetsu and Uzimo.

I don't understand something why does Shippuden has to be the last show on Toonami,
why cant black clover and Naruto Shippuden have the 12 am to 1 am slot on Toonami right now

Food wars and Jojo, and MHA, fire force, demon slayer, & finally Boruto
are all on breaks with season finales right now,

So why not bring Shippuden and black clover up to the 12 am - 1 am line up?

or Am I wrong?
