Naruto Shippuden 298 Contact! Naruto vs. Itachi is the latest episode of the Naruto Shippuden Series from the the last episode Naruto Shippuden 297 A Father's Hope, A Mother's Love.
From the last episode of the Naruto Shippuden Series, the episode start somewhere away from the battlefield of the previous kages against the shinobi alliance headed by Gaara and Oonoki. Nagato and Itachi came across with Naruto and Bee. At first they are just talking but as Kabuto activated the jutsu, they are still talking about what happen but Itachi and Nagato cannot control their body... When Itachi tried to use the Mangekyō Sharingan the jutsu that Itachi implanted to Naruto the last time they meet have been activated and it is the crow that has the eye of Shisui Uchiha that is programmed to cast a Genjutsu to protect Konoha. Itachi implanted this jutsu to Naruto believing in him that when he encountered Sasuke and used the Mangekyō Sharingan.
So Itachi was able to breakthrough Kabuto's jutsu and take down Nagato using his Amaterasu. Kabuto then reactivate Nagato. Nagato used his almighty push, so Bee turned on second version of his 8 tails mode and Nagato used Gakido to absorbed Bee's chackra and Ningendo to pull out Naruto's soul.
This episode of Naruto Shippuden 298 Contact! Naruto vs. Itachi is one of my long awaited episodes since I read it back in the Naruto Shippuden Manga seres, the animation is good in my own opinion and the the fight scenes are great. I give the animators a thumbs up on this one. Anyway, as for the story wise this is an unexpected happening, come to think of it that there is a way to breakthrough of the reanimation jutsu... Itachi is really on a different level and one of my favorites after watching this episode.
