Naruto, one of the most popular anime series ever, is based on the same name manga series written by Masashi Kishimoto.
It originally aired from 2002 to 2007, and then it was followed by a show called “Naruto Shippuden,” which raised many questions, including the meaning of the title.
Take a look at the next few paragraphs to learn more about what Shippuden and Rasengan are all about! How does Shippuden relate to Naruto Shippuden?
According to the meaning of the first word Shi, it means being fast and rapid. The second word Pu means wind.
The last word means to tell a story, a legend, or a chronicle.
It is an encapsulation of the legend of the vortex as a whole.
The first two words of the phrase indicate that Naruto is rapidly growing, as implied by the first two words. Naruto’s transformation is wind and the fact that he added nature transformation to the Rasengan for the first time, something he was the first to do, which both Minato and Kakashi had previously failed to accomplish. Rasenshuriken remains Naruto’s most powerful attack but is also symbolic.
There was a three-year gap between Naruto and Shippuden, during which time he matured into something much different from the 12-year-old he was before. The first word signifies that the story has moved forward three years and that people have grown and changed. During a battle, the word can also mean sprinting.
Naruto’s last name Uzumaki is also related to storms, and the name Shippuden is just trying to point out that it is a legend about Naruto and how he became a Ninja.
Kanji: What You Need to Know
In ‘Shippuden,’ three different characters can be identified. There are literal and implied meanings for kanji. They read Shi(tsu)-Pu(tsu)-Den separately. There are three characters in the Chinese language that signify speed, wind, legends, or chronicles, respectively. Hurricane Chronicles/Hurricane Legends is the literal translation of “Hurricane Chronicles/Hurricane Legends.”. Do you know why this name is so renowned?
There’s a reason why it’s a great name.
In addition to his name and talents, Naruto Uzumaki plays a central role in the title. A hurricane resembles the shape of the family name Uzumaki, which means ‘swirl’ in Japanese. Despite trying to become the strongest Hokage of all time, Naruto is plagued by his drive to be accepted by others. In many of the key storylines, Rasengan, a mini chakra-cyclone orb that forms in his hands, is one of his signature moves. Many of Naruto’s attacks incorporate the element of wind. As Naruto tumbles into the storm of wars, friendships, and power, one could argue that he is the hurricane of his chronicles.
Naruto believes he must save Sasuke Uchiha, his brother-figure, as a large portion of the Shippuden plot. Their ideologies clash as well as their physical ability. The lighting element is Sasuke’s favorite element, which results in iconic imagery when he squares up to his rival in the battle of wind versus lightning; it’s the perfect storm. Naruto and Sasuke, both of whom have varying degrees of friendship and foe, serve as a kind of yin and yang dynamic and even as a kind of yin and yang to one another. It is important to note that the most iconic power they combine is the Six Paths of Yin and the Six Paths of Yang. This imagery of two forces coming together is similar to two cyclone clouds or a hurricane converging. Besides harkening back to Sasuke and Naruto’s united power, Shippuden also highlights the dual nature of their stormy relationship and epic journey together into adulthood. Taking a deeper look, Naruto: Shippuden can be viewed as the “swift growth of Naruto’s legend.” What a fantastic title.
“Naruto Shippuden” describes what Shippuden is all about, in your opinion?
This compound noun, which comes from the anime title “Naruto Shippuden,” is “Shippuden.” It is a compound word of two Japanese words, “Shippu,” which means fast wind, and “den,” which is a legend, myth, or chronicle.
This translates to “Hurricane Chronicles” in that Naruto Uzumaki uses wind as part of his Jutsu element to activate Rasengan, thus creating a perfect analogy for Shippuden (which I will explain later on).
In addition to Naruto’s mastery of his Jutsu, “Shippuden” also has several hidden meanings that should not be overlooked.
For example, it represents Naruto’s rapid growth and character arc throughout the anime series, since he begins his journey as a Hokage at 12.
- Naruto’s character arc is a masterpiece – his legendary and rapid growth throughout the series! In part one of the series, he was a 12-year-old boy. In the second part of the franchise, “Shippuden,” Kishimoto ages him up to the age of a teenager. Finally, he is shown as an adult married to Hinata and is now caring for his family.
- The meaning of his first and last name is “Naruto Uzumaki” – whirlpool. In chapter one, the series is named after him: “Naruto Uzumaki!!” And since Naruto’s chakra is air, Kishimoto-san intentionally made Naruto be the same as an uncontrollable hurricane.
- Rasengan’s wind powers are evident in Naruto’s title “Shippuden.” This is the most obvious reference because Kishimoto-san refers to Naruto’s exponentially growing wind powers called “Rasengan.”
Rasengan’s are what kind of animal are they?
Rasengan is a special form of Jutsu that Naruto has mastered in mystical martial arts.
Ninjas use Jutsu in the battle to channel elements such as air, water, fire, and earth through their chakra.
As air is Naruto’s element, he can control it with the Rasengan Jutsu he forms with his hands.
