Naruto Shippuden Episode 497: Gaara’s Search For Ideal Wedding Gift
According to a report from MobiPicker, wedding preparations have taken over the show to prepare for Naruto and Hinata’s grand wedding. In episode 497, Gaara and Killer seem to be having a difficult time looking for the best present for the couple. Much like what happened in episode 496, Shikamaru’s search for his own gift turned out to be a path for him to find love. The outlet teases that the same storyline could take place this time around, with Gaara and Killer B “getting into the idea of romance.”
The preview for episode 497 takes the story outside of Konoha. In the preview, fans will get to see that Gaara goes to Ichiraku Ramen to ask Iruka for advice. With only 22 days before the big wedding, everyone is shuffling to being at their best while they get the couple a special present.

Naruto Shippuden Gears Up For Boruto Transition
In other news, series creator Masashi Kishimoto also revealed what’s to happen in the upcoming spinoff, Boruto: The Next Generation.
As it went along, the Naruto stop kept getting more introspective and darker and darker. So for Boruto, I want it to be a little bit more happy and fun. Something that the younger boys and girls can also enjoy,” Kishimoto said, in an interview with Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
Naruto Shippuden first aired on TV Tokyo in February 2007. The hit anime series was adapted from the manga’s Part II series which Kishimoto penned. In the United States, Naruto only started airing in September 2015 under Cartoon Network’s Toonami. The show is finally coming to an end, after a decade.
Fans can expect to see the adventures and misadventures of Naruto’s son, Boruto, in April. Meanwhile, Naruto Shippuden episode 497 airs on Thursday, March 2, at 7:30 PM EST on TV Tokyo.
