"Coup d'État" (クーデター, Kūdetā) is episode 358 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.


Despite Hiruzen's misgivings, Danzō persuades the Konoha Council to side with his decision to have the Uchiha put under surveillance as they become the main suspects in the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's Attack due to the ocular ability of the Sharingan. Danzō insists that the Anbu put the Uchiha under 24-7 surveillance. Kakashi who also disagrees with this tact is assigned to the mission alongside the dutiful Itachi who comments that the clan were already aware of the fact that they were under suspicion. Members of the Konoha Military Police become more and more belligerent in their duties despite Fugaku's efforts and the complaints from the citizens soon reach the ears of the higher-ups who seem determined to increase pressure on the clan against the Third's better judgement. Elsewhere on a mission, two members of Ao's team suddenly fall, clutching their heads. Using the stolen Byakugan in his possession the Kirigakure-nin uncovers that it was the work of Shisui Uchiha and retreats. Reporting in, Shisui's team informs the Council of the success of the mission and then, he requests a private audience with Hiruzen where his request to act independently to clear up the suspicion on the Uchiha is granted. He then informs Itachi of this as well as the fact that he was assigned the task of spying on him since he had lost the trust of some of the clan's members. Realising that he would not be able to stop the coup d'état, Shisui shares his plan to use Kotoamatsukami on Fugaku in order to dissuade the clan from their actions with Hiruzen and Danzō — the latter of whom is sceptic that it will work. In his last meeting with the young Uchiha, Shisui initially foils Danzō's attempt to attack him but is caught off guard when he uses Izanagi and is able to steal one of his eyes. Escaping from Danzō and his Anbu, Shisui meets with Itachi and notes that it was too late to stop the Uchiha before entrusting Itachi with his remaining eye as well as the task of protecting the village and the name of the Uchiha. Shisui's suicide causes Itachi to awaken his Mangekyō Sharingan which he uses to read even more of the stone tablet in the Naka Shrine. Over time, things deteriorate even more between the clan and the village, leaving Itachi to contemplate his next course of action to try and honour his friend's last wishes.

    • Not to mention the eye fetish of his.
    • Agree with Fox, Danzo had good intentions but he went about it wrongly. If you include the fact he copied Kirigakure's previous train...
