Naruto Shippuden Season 4
For Season 4, the creators came back with the revenge story. In this season, Shikamaru Nara will be avenging Asuma’s death from the ones who are guilty. The plot was simple yet effective.
You can call it the continuation of the previous season’s story. However, season 3 was on air for more than two years. So, creators thought it would be a better idea to break the season and show the revenge in the next season.
Season 4 was aired in Japan in late 2008 but on Disney XD it was aired in 2011.
