The Akatsuki Makes its Move (暁、始動, Akatsuki, Shidō) is episode 2 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.


Now that Naruto has returned to the Konohagakure from his approximate three year training, he, and the rest of the village, will soon have to deal with the Akatsuki. Once upon arrival, Jiraiya begins telling Kakashi that Akatsuki has begun to make their move which includes them capturing the tailed beasts. As they agreed Jiraiya returns Naruto's training to Kakashi after the long period of time they spend together. Tsunade decides that it's time to test if Naruto and Sakura are worthy enough to recreate Team Kakashi and hunt Akatsuki. They'll be doing the same test they did the first time they became ninja: take the bell from Kakashi. As Naruto and Sakura succeed, Akatsuki has already planned their first step towards the ultimate dream. In Sunagakure, two Akatsuki members, Sasori and Deidara, arrive at the gates of the Suna. Their secret agent Yūra has already cleared the guards to give them access.


  • This episode and episode 1 were originally aired together as an hour-long premier special.
  • The first appearance of Kakashi after the time skip is different to that of the manga.
  • The way Naruto and Jiraiya come back to Konoha after the time skip in Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3 was more similar to that of the manga than the anime. The first person he sees is Kakashi, instead of Team Ebisu and Sakura.
