Naruto's Kakashi Hatake Unveiled



At long last, we the fans of the anime series, Naruto and Naruto Shippūden, have finally learned what Kakashi Hatake's face looks like without his mask. For years Kakashi's Team 7, which consist  of Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha,  Sakura Haruno, and some members from other teams have conspired  and wagered against each other to unmask Kakashi to see his true face.

And if you have been watching the Naruto Shippūden, the Fourth Great Ninja War, you saw that in a flashback a stranger was enlisted by Team 7 in a co-plot to unmask Kakashi. As usual, our merry band of conspirers failed. Little did they know that they never had a chance of uncovering Kakashi's face as he was the strange photo journalist working alongside them.

However, to our delight we viewers got to see what Team 7 failed to discover, and below are screenshots of Kakashi Hatake unmasked. 





Kakashi Hatake's Pride: Team 7 working as one unit.
