Four episodes of Viz Media’s anime series “Naruto Shippuden” are now available on iTunes before they’re released on DVD. The first episode is available for free.
Four more episodes will be released in October.
“Naruto Shippuden is the latest addition to the more than 150 earlier Naruto episodes and several feature films that are offered on the iTunes Store,” said Ken Sasaki, VP of strategy and business development for Viz. “These new Shippuden episodes are being made available well in advance of the eventual DVD release and offer fans the flexibility, 24/7 accessibility and convenience of digital download.”
