A True Ending
“A True Ending” (本当の終わり, Hontō no Owari) is episode 393 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
In spite of Shukaku stopping Madara’s Susanoo Sword, the Uchiha sends another one hurtling towards Gaara, knocking him down, which leads the One-Tail to tell its former host not to overdo it, but the Kazekage continues to fight unyieldingly, declaring he is now the tanuki’s equal. The tailed beasts are then dragged into the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, forcing Naruto out of his Tailed Beast Mode. Losing his consciousness, Naruto begins to fall to the ground after having Kurama extracted, but Gaara uses his sand to cushion Naruto’s fall.
The tailed beasts are successfully resealed inside the statue as Madara slams his minion’s talkativeness. Tobirama sneaks up behind Madara, and engages in battle with him, buying Gaara enough time to escape with Naruto. Meanwhile, Sasuke rejoins the battle, but not before Hashirama transfers to him his own chakra, and gives him a “technique” to counter Madara’s senjutsu. As he arrives to Madara’s location, Sasuke finds himself suspended in midair before he could land a blow, and is then stabbed mercilessly by Madara. Elsewhere, Tobi, using his Kanzeon Lotus King, proceeds to assault the Shinobi Alliance, only to be fended off by Hiruzen. Meanwhile, Orochimaru and his group take cover to plan a surprise attack while Karin bursts into tears after sensing Sasuke’s predicament. As Naruto is escorted safely by Gaara, Hinata, learning of Naruto’s failing heartbeat through her Byakugan, rushes to his location, but stumbles and falls due to her low chakra, while Sakura, who remains the only medical-nin with enough chakra, begins to heal him. As grief overtakes both Sakura and Karin, the two kunoichi realise that if things continue like this, both Naruto and Sasuke will die.
