Naruto Akatsuki Trailer Focuses on Itachi

The Jump Comics Channel on YouTube uploaded a video showcasing the Akatsuki organization from Naruto. All of its members get a little bit of stage time showing off their personalities. But Itachi Uchiha is the one who has the most prominent place in the footage.

The Naruto Akatsuki promotional video is just over a minute long. It does contain some spoilers if you are not caught up with the series, such as Obito’s identity and Sasori’s true face. You can watch the video here:

In the Naruto series, Akatsuki was an organization of shinobi who did not have an affiliation with a village. Its members have changed since its creation, and the ones in the video are from Nagato’s time as the leader. These are also the members that the audience first sees when Akatsuki starts becoming a more active threat at the beginning of Shippuden.

Though the main Naruto series ended some time ago, it’s been a busy time for its fans. Not only is there a VR attraction, but there was also a popularity poll to decide the main character of a short spin-off. Jump Comics will announce the winner in April 2023, but when it last revealed the interim results, the top three characters were Minato Namikaze, Itachi Uchiha, and Sakura Haruno. Itachi’s popularity might have lent to his screentime in the Akatsuki trailer.

You can watch the Naruto Akatsuki trailer via the Jump Comics YouTube channel. Naruto is available for streaming on services such as Netflix and Crunchyroll.
