"Creeping Shadow" (忍び寄る影, Shinobiyoru Kage) is episode 347 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.

Summary

Kakashi comes looking for Jiraiya and tells him that the Ame Orphans are attempting to bring about change in Amegakure, through dialogue instead of military might. Jiraiya is satisfied to learn that the orphans are now growing up and reminisces of his time with them. Elsewhere at Amegakure, Kyūsuke brings letters of requests to Yahiko, which the Akatsuki will fulfil. Yahiko is determined that the Akatsuki can surpass Hanzō one day. At Hanzō's residence, he is informed of the Akatsuki by one of his men and expresses his approval for an organisation which shares the same ideal as him. Meanwhile, Yahiko, Konan and Nagato head to a small village that was earlier attacked. There, they meet with a group of people, who want to attack Iwagakure but the Akatsuki insists solving the issue through peace talks instead. This effort is in vain as the Konoha Anbu disguised as Iwa-shinobi refuse to negotiate and assault the three. Nagato is enraged, having witness Yahiko and Konan being beaten. The Demonic Statue of the Outer Path is unwillingly summoned by Nagato but Yahiko and Konan stop him. Danzō arrives to the location, to witness the defeated corpses of the "Iwa shinobi". Yahiko departs and the remainder of the Akatsuki follows, expressing their trust in him. Danzō arrives at Hanzō's residence, with the corpses of the fallen shinobi, whom he recognised as members of Hanzō's clan. Hanzō is shocked to hear that the Akatsuki, a group that shares the same ideal as him, is responsible for this.

Trivia

  • In one scene, Obito Uchiha's Sharingan is mistakenly depicted with two tomoe instead of three.
