Naruto Shippuden 482 see’s Gaara’s past, even as far as to see his mother’s face. We also learn that Kankuro and Temari were there at the start but Gaara’s father shut them out from him. Shikamaru’s story focuses on his school and friends life with Choji and Naruto by his side at the time.
Naruto Shippuden 482 has to be one of the slowest Naruto episodes ever. Gaara tries to befriend Temari and Kankuro but his father stops that, he finds that he is better friends with Yashamaru, he is taken care of by him, all while Temari notices that something might be wrong and that something will happen in the future, which it definitely has.
Shikamaru gets to trouble when he flings a pencil at Choji, Naruto joins in and are made to stand outside, they all eat a few chips and fall asleep while standing. Naruto tries to protect Hinata from bullies while Choji and Shikamaru have some friendly banter. They also annoy Ino who shows up with a flower to give to some (most likely Sasuke), the episode ends somewhere there. Naruto Shippuden 482 ends here.
A deeply boring and slow episode, I had to watch it at two or even three times the speed, and it felt like the usual normal speed. These episodes are truly being butchered, it has come to a point where it’s no longer a series I can truly like because of the crap they’re doing here. Unnecessary crap. Naruto Shippuden 483, will be titled “Jiraiya – Kakashi”, lets see what that brings.
