Naruto Shippuden Episode 496 Spoilers: Shikamaru Finds Love

In a report from Auto World News, the anime series continues with the arc from Hidden Leaf Village’s Story: The Perfect Day For A Wedding. This time, more preparations are set to be seen for Naruto and Hinata’s big wedding. Entitled Steam and Food Pills, episode 496 will feature Choji and Shikamaru’s search for the perfect gift for the couple. The promo teases that Choji plans to get the couple a present that involves food.

In the manga, Choji treats the couple to a lovely meal but the show might take a different turn. Reports say that Choji is set to join the couple in the special banquette, but will sit at a different table so the couple will have some privacy. On the other hand, in Shikamaru’s search to find the perfect gift to the couple, he ends up meeting a special lady named Tamari.

His new lady friend suggests that a romantic trip for the couple would be a great present. Throughout the discussion, Shikamaru admits to Choji that he is hesitant to talk to Tamari. And Choji helps his friend get over his fear. Interestingly, Shikamaru and Tamari head to the Konoha Hot Springs to see if Hinata would like to go there for their honeymoon. By some twist of fate, Tamari thought that the trip was for her and Shikamaru, and ends up running away when she finds out it was the probable gift to the couple. Shikamaru clears the air with his new lady friend and tries a second time to make things work between them.
