The spinoff could actually be good. I mean think about it.
>Power levels reset to the beginning of Part 1
>Actual ninja tactics
>No darkness or crazy eye bullshit
Of course the moment Salad activates her sharingan it'll be time to bail but it could still be good up until then.
>Power levels reset to the beginning of Part 1
But the moment anyone even slightly too strong for the new generation to handle turns up Naruto will just turn up and destroy them.
Well, Sharingan and Byakugan aren't all that broken. Sharingan didn't become a mess until the Mangekyou upgrade, which would not likely show up in a sequel other than Sasuke cameos. Also, Salad might even use the damn thing correctly to become a new copyninja, given her focus on intellect. Let's face it, Sasuke was just as much an idiot as Naruto and did jack with the base Sharigan's potential.
Yeah, inb4 DBZ bullshit ala majin bu saga
>goten and trunks ssj like it isn't big deal
>gohan must, yet again, unlock his full potential.
>an ancientevil has awaken
>No darkness or crazy eye bullshit
>byakugan and sharinga offspring
This is pretty much exactly what it'd be if they went the serious route with it. Salad would be the youngest Uchiha to ever unlock the sharingan, Bolt would learn rasengan before even graduating, some asspull about being able to access Kyuubi chakra and has sage cloak as a kid. Just hope it ends up being non-serious.
Is it just focuses on the new generation or is it gonna cover the shit that happens before the epilogue? Seems like a waste in character designs to over use them in the movie
>The spinoff could actually be good.
It couldn't be good. The original already sucked cock and to call the guy behind it an untalented hack would be a compliment.
Did people really like the ending beyond muh shipping? Because pic related was so much bullshit i couldn't see straight for hours
Do Naruto posters including the mod just flock to one thread? I see some nurutu threads and they barely get any reply. Is this all just the works of IRC? Why even bother making a thread?
All of you need to go home. There won't be a spin-off manga. The new-era project is just a bunch of short novels.
Not an actual short manga.
What the only one who can do anything to him is Naruto. Plus he did dispel the Tsukuyomi in the end. Also no one needs to know the details in between fighting Kaguya and the dispelling.
>The only bullshit was Sasuke deciding to fuck Sakura.
How about the fucking retards that let this mass murderer, kinslayer, and nearly world destroyer back into the fold with a fucking slap on the wrist just because blonde haired faggot messiah ninja said it was okay?
>Power levels reset to the beginning of Part 1
But all the "I can wipe continients easily" guys are dead,old,in other plane existence,wandering around the world or in boring office jobs.
>Bolt is MC so Byakugan actually gets used effectively
>Sharingan goes back to just being able to copy techniques and minor precognitive abilities
>entire series is just the kids goofing off and going on missions
>Orochimaru and some Zabuza-tier enemies are the main antagonists
>no excessive DARKNESS or angst because the kids have relatively normal lives
>high points are techniques like Rasengan and Chidori like in part 1
mite b cool
>He only killed a bunch of samurai and a dick everyone hated.
No. He also killed a bunch of Orochimaru's experiments/prisoners as part of his training. It was something they barely glossed over, WAY back when this timeskip shitheap started up.
>tfw you realize they didn't wrap up Orochimaru's storyline because he has a new bunch of little kids to rape
shunshin no jutsu shit isn't the same as the flying thunder god teleportation technique that only tobirama and minato used, it's actually not all that uncommon
The ending was pretty happy and satisfactory in my opinion.
Also, fuck mate, Sasuke didn't actually cause that much harm to the world. He killed Danzo, but he was a corrupt motherfucker as well.
Orochimaru's experiments were his fodder to attack Konoha anyways, Orochi's personal henchmen
Sasuke shouldn't be held accountable for that.
Two attempted murders oof the 5 kages on the other hand...
>It couldn't be good. The original already sucked cock and to call the guy behind it an untalented hack would be a compliment.
Now that was just uncalled for and rude. Kishi does have art talent and naruto was very fun in the beginning when he was shaping up the konoha world and making the ninja arts seem more interesting then just going full power level, there was a time when the characters had to use their chakra wisely and be strategic as a team instead of doing everything alone and relying on one persons power. or the belief that there were certain jutsu's that every ninja knew like transformation or substitution or dopplegangers and a bit of genjutsu and such but they had a few special jutsu's up their sleeves that they specialized in to beat their opponent by surprise.
As time went on though the story had to progress because a series can't run on forever, masashi probably got headaches thinking how can I end this series in the best way possible? and this was probably the best he could come up with with the help of his editors. (although I wouldn't be surprised if his editors pushed him in this direction to going power level)
I liked naruto and half of the shipudun arcs, (the talk about how there were exactly 9 tailed baste killed it for me, it was cool when gaara was introduced and he was similar to naruto in a way but the fact that there were so many jinchiriki's ruined the immersion that naruto wasn't that special a character if every country had a jinkirichi its also clear that maybe masashi had a lot of trouble trying to come up with cool jutsu's that seemed ninja like. (Hidan kind of ruined that for me as well as kakuzu a bit)
You would be lying to say you didn't enjoy naruto otherwise you wouldn't be here right now.
>Sasuke didn't actually cause that much harm to the world.
He actively declared that he would destroy an entire village, then when that didn't work out, claimed that he would kill all the leaders of all villages and become a common enemy for the world to unite against forever.
You don't get points back for trying to be a genocide-happy maniac but failing horrendously at your job.
They just moved on with their lives, that's not shipping, that's a natural human instinct.
It only bothers you so much because you're a big fucking autist who's probably into shipping in the first place.
Did everybody forget the skyline in the background?
>Salad running around with laptop 24/7
I can already see it.
>no one recognizing the spin off will be Beyblade 0
Plotting genocide and fully intending to go on with it should count for something. Also attempted murder on everyone he knows.
If someone tried to kill you but someone else stopped them, you would be BFF's with that person?
They are THE cutest pair
It's hard for this series to continue
Naruto and Sasuke are godlike now,they will always handle the worlds problems with ease
Kishimoto wants desperately to send this cash cow to slaughter
>you will never go back to your jr. high days for a few hours and celebrate this victory with your jr. high anime club friends
that you never had because you were too chickenshit to join an anime club
This completely makes up for
Tai and Sora
Number one bullshit is how they deal with sasuke, He got away with everything. So, Did the other villians, Kishi was rushing the ending and leave just big mess!
Not to mention that, He is still being edgy!
But he has another chance for that sweet Uchiha blood, he couldn't get Itachi, and he got greedy and waited too long to try Sasuke. Now that we got a new Uchiha Orochimaru can finally get some more foucus.
After rewatching some early episodes, rereading the exam arc and listening to few endings I was just a little baffled by the ending really. It didn't felt like a proper story, Naruto was climbing such mountains and had such diverse stories but the final war with the goddess and this just felt...strange.
holy shit it's as if it's been foreshadowed for fucking ever.
>b-but muh parallels
But he has another chance for that sweet Uchiha blood, he couldn't get Itachi, and he got greedy and waited too long to try Sasuke. Now that we got a new Uchiha Orochimaru can finally get some more foucus...
>Also, the last one, only Naruto, Kakashi and Sakura were around. Might as well be their little secret.
That doesn't somehow make it right. If anything that makes the ending even worse, that they're all covering for this huge faggot that would burn the entire world so long as he thought it kept people together. He outright tried to kill ALL OF THEM, but they just accept him back like nothing's changed. He tried to kill the pink one at least two times, but suddenly "i lub u pls babies".
He ONLY failed because he happened to be going against Ninja Jesus.
Absolutely 0 repercussions for everything wrong he did. Murdered people, plotted with an organization of criminals, endangered the world for the sake of a grudge, a traitor, fratricide-committing, near teammate-killing (and the red haired one from his new squad ONLY survived because his old group showed up) Ninja Judas to the retard Hokage's Ninja Jesus.
>NScucks try to say Naruto's a bad father and that he's neglectful
>first appearance with his son
>imparts some wisdom onto him because he knows he'll be the one to succeed him
>helps him mess up his own statue
>ends up being late for his own meeting as a result
Naruto's a top-tier dad. These salty faggots don't know shit.
>implying she wasnt love interest before the manga even started
>Power levels reset to the beginning of Part 1
No. Once power creep sets in, there's no going back. Remember how everyone was a Super Saiyan?
>trouble trying to come up with cool jutsu's that seemed ninja like. (Hidan kind of ruined that for me as well as kakuzu a bit)
Holy shit, I thought the same thing. I mean I remember when kakashi used the lightning blade for the first time zabuza stated he could ALMOST see the chakra in his hand. but then later when naruto learned the move rasangan it was like nothing more then DBZ where they used raw KI (DBZ fan here). the difference of ki and the whole chakra premise that I found so cool was that chakra was used as a tool to use different weapons while KI was used as a weapon in itself.
There were also jutsu's that I thought were pretty damn cool like shino's bugs and kankuro's puppet art and deidara's exploding clay. Things that I never would of associated with ninja's.
It also bugged me how nina tools like daggers and caltrops and such were discarded so much when those are almost the symbolic tools of being a ninja.
What's /a/ favorite naruto fights?
I really liked the one where shino fights kankuro, and the shikamaru fights that sound ninja who used genjutsu, those 2 felt the most ninja like for me.
the strategies they used are what made it so cool compared to DBZ.
DBZ goes, I good u bad we fight pow he strong i fight more pow somehow i won through power
Naruto went, Gotta plan for the worst he caught me off guard with this jutsu but I pulled this off and got the upper hand now to explain it so the reader knows what just happened because otherwise they will feel stupid if they don't understand what happened.
one can only barely fathom how happy Naruto and Hinata are right now
If the spin-off is more of the beginning of Naruto, ala the Zabuza arc and light-hearted shit, I'd be down to read/watch it again.
Everything after the Rescue Sasuke arc was complete bullshit. I liked the eye powers when they were really, really basic. Byakugan was some cool shit.
>there will never be an awesome Neji vs. Spider-Man fight again
Literally the only moment from that arc I enjoyed.
I don't know about that anon. It says nothing in here like that in the rough translation. That said, Both Naruto and the sun are behind her in the sketch. Naruto has been associated with the Sunlight since at least the end of part 1.
>Absolutely 0 repercussions for everything wrong he did
Because the one guy that wouldn't punish his sorry ass was always there to save him.
And what did Sasuke did next? He saved everyone's lives when he didn't had to.
You know, I thought it was fairly obvious, the parallels are still -there-, Minato/Kushina, - but in this case, Naruto is basically Kushina (the warm, hot one), while Hinata is Minato (the cool, relaxed one).
I dont get why people thought it'd be Naruto and Sakura. They're both warm, energetic people, and dont fit the whole parallels thing and ying yang thing the series likes.
>Everything after the Rescue Sasuke arc was complete bullshit.
Pre Pain arc Part II was decent back when people had hoped that Kishi would improve Sakura's character, back when Kishi gave focus to the other cast.
>one bloody bastard already
He forgave at least 2. Obito and Sasuke. Despite Obito pretty much being why his parents are fucking dead, starting a war with the entire world, killed a ridiculous amount of people, let the stupid god tree come to fruition, revive a maniac that killed even MORE people, it goes on.
Why does this fag forgive everybody in this stupid clan? I'm surprised he didn't forgive Madara too for the full circlejerk session.
>I remember when kakashi used the lightning blade for the first time zabuza stated he could ALMOST see the chakra in his hand.
If we are talking very early naruto remember when they did that bell test with kakashi and when the fight began sakura and sasuke went and hid while naruto went face to face with kakashi and said let the match begin and kakashi said "you may be thinking of the wrong kind of match". Kakashi said that the essence of being a ninja is to eradicate yourself, become invisible. Then it felt like the series started to take a more lets have a stand off type match and fight fair in square even though this isn't a chunin exam situation.
Also my favorite fight was the shikamaru fights temari in chunin exam and naruto and sasuke fight hake.
Summons, ninja tactics that don't involve giant fucking nukes, etc.
I'd like something 'new' with this generation while staying true to stuff that's a bit more low-key than what we got halfway through the series.
And no fucking Tailed Beasts, ffs.
I wouldn't say hate. Old /a/ didn't really care about it on a fanatical level. It was popular and got some threads that were either dedicated to QUALITY or hype threads, particularly around the Rock Lee and Rescue Sasuke arc.
That's all I remember.
Seems the Theme for the last got leaked.
No proxy needed
>I wanted to create the atmosphere of the particular period represented in the story but...I ended up drawing a "modern-looking" girl(smile).
Well he definitely found her cuter looking than Sakura. Does anyone have the translated early part one Sakura character concept?
Keep Sharingan at level 1. Let Salad just be able to predict people's moves and copy shit.
I really don't wanna see some next level shit, the Rinnegan, or the Byakugan miraculously becoming the Rinnegan.
naruto has crush on sakura,
sakura has dick lust for the sauce,
sasuke is MUH DARKNESS.
nothing fucking changed until the very end.
I'd love a Naruto story focused on peace time missions, peacekeeping and ninja dealing with the aftermath of the Ten Tails/Kaguya Event.
Just, more comedy, more relationships, more slice of life, less ZOMG DRAMA.
>mfw Naruto will get a different VA for the epilogue and Bolt will be voiced by Junko instead
Or they could get lazy and do the same shit they do with Goku, Gohan and Goten and have them all voice by the same actress.
>Kishimoto isn't writing or drawing it
>>Power levels reset to the beginning of Part 1
>>Actual ninja tactics
>>No darkness or crazy eye bullshit
well naruto would probably die or someshit. but if they could do less stupid epic war that could be fun
As a pure ninja tool, if we go by our definition of a ninja, the byakugan is OP as shit.
However, in naruto, their version of ninja don't match up with ours, and thus wind up not quite as good.
Pain wasnt even a fucking ninja.
He was a God.
Why are people so caught up with the term 'ninja'? It's just a word some people use in the series, and for the most part, some of them didnt act like it. Ninja doesnt even mean the same thing in their universe as it does in ours.
That's the thing that's always struck me abotu Naruto.
The series has a nice setting but it's not really explored. After a certain point it's just ONE CRISIS AFTER ANOTHER or DARKNESS.
This. No more fucking nukes or ridiculous eye techniques or excessive monologuing about hatred or DARKNESS.
Just some light-hearted ninja adventures with this new cast of characters.
If you mean ROTN he wrote an outline for that. His own comments seem to imply he was more behind Naruto and his illusion parent scenes as well as the villain more than anything else.
>Why does Bolt and Himawari both have whisker marks?
They actually have 2 fathers.
Sai calling Sakura out on her manipulative bullshit and making her cry was the only "development" that Sakura got that I actually enjoyed.
A naruto fag trying to make sense of this lazy writing... Can we get dubs now please?
>They become friends
>Turns out they become the epitome asexualism and platonic
>Himawari becomes the third MC and her and Bolt become Hikari and Taichi tier of sibling power
>Salad and Rock Lee's pupil become the bestest of friends
>Konohamaru and Moegi are boyfriend and girlfriend
>Kanbaru Ninja is a lesbian or as asexual as Salad and Burrito
>new InoShikaCho are still InoShikaCho
The real poetry would be in shipperfags frustration about not getting anything canon with the new generation.
The sharing an was really kind of confusing when you think about it, kakashi used it in the beginning because he could copy techniques or so even though he used a form of genjutsu to manipulate the enemy, the sharigan at first sounds like sasuke can use it to copy juts techniques then later the sharigan can be used to mimic physical moves like what lee did, then the sharigan could be used as a form to see through genjutsu, then the sharingan could be used to see the future movement of an enemy.
Its almost like masashi either didn't know what the sharing an should be allowed to do or just kept giving the sharing an new abilities like it was calvin ball. The sharingan really needed to be able to have one type of ability instead of just adding shit to it.
Byakugan was a lot better because to was so much better established at what it could do, It could se an enemies tenketsu points and it could give him a near 360 degrees view around him. it stayed that way and never changed.
>The sharingan really needed to be able to have one type of ability instead of just adding shit to it
I thought it gained more abilities as the number of tomoe went up.
Come to think of it, did we ever see a 1 tomoe Sharingan? Do those even exist?
I honestly didn't like it in the manga or animated.
>Naruto beasting on Sasuke
Only fun in the anime. Hated the fight in the manga.
Yeah, it gained more abilities as the number of tomoe went up, I think.
And I agree. It seemed to get pretty confusing as the series went on. I really don't like how it was a jack of all trades, master of everything.
>he was a god
that was his ego speaking
>Ninja doesnt even mean the same thing in their universe as it does in ours.
I will tell you right now anon that this is why naruto got so popular in the west, I'm not even shitting you. When we think of ninja we think of black cloak throw ninja stars and be invisible and fast shit. Naruto was a different view on ninja's, characters wore bright orange could breath fire and multiply them selves. This is why it was so damn popular because it wasn't the stereotype of ninja. Take twilight for example, the vampires don't burn in the sun they sparkle. Its shit like this that make these types of stories so damn popular.
>we never get to see naruto and the entire family together in at least one page
Fuck this ending.
>implying his daughter and the current shipping going on with her and burrito aren't just a symbol for the homosexual relationship naruto and sasuke had
>yfw salada pegs burrito while whispering all the lewd gay acts naruto and sasuke have done in the past
Search your feelings, you know it to be true.
>tsuntsun Satsuki vs deredere Hinata
Also i would've liked if the romance was played up a bit more. Naruto could have been the "badboy" troublemaker with a heart that knew HInata wanted the D. but ignored her because he didn't want to ruin her family life.
She is almost royalty after all
To me, Sharingan was the -worst- thing about the series. Rinnegan was the second, because it was later revealed to be a further step beyond Sharingan.
Fuck it, I really fucking hate Kishimoto as a writer anyway. His world building is fucking horrible, his plot makes no sense, and I just cannot buy the whole "Naruto managed to create peace" thing in the aftermath. What, did Naruto murder the leaders of the other countries and stopped them from having wars?
Because the whole point of ninja clans and shit where that THEY WERE HIRED to do battle by the countries to fight for them, proxy battles for domination, resources and assassination .Hidden Villages are supposed to be subservient to the countries. Did they decide "Man, world peace rules? I no longer wish to kill my rivals and conquer more land!"
The ending was bullshit.
I think narutos son is going to be a "bad boy" protagonist in this series.
Something about his attitude reminds me of sasuke. Plus his dad is king ninja so you know it's probably gone to his head.
Yeah, now that you mention it, I think they forgot the entire fucking point of Ninja Villages.
If they're all going to work together for profit and peace and unity, then how do they divvy that shit up?
No but a whole big theme was the cycle of hate and revenge. The whole irony of it all was that as long as the system of ninja exists the cycle will continue. They acknowledged that vengeance was rampant in the ninja world but in the end they didnt say what they planned to do about it. We can assume the shinoi alliance still exists but kishi made no note of it all. Everyone had sex and babies and they have ciiea, computers, and wifi. Thats it
That scene will probably be in the movie.
You just don't get it.
If Kishimoto wrote Female Naruto the same as if he wrote Male Naruto there wouldn't be a difference.
If Kishimoto tried to write Female Naruto like an actual shoujo (adding to the fact that he's not a good writer in general), we would get something equal or even worse than Sakura Haruno's tier as a character.
If Salad starts using Sakura's catch phrase regularly I'm going to be mad.
Geez guys, it's not like the entire military force of every relevant country choosing to not fight wars could get those daimyo figureheads to stand down or anything.
Yeah, that's my point. It's like the author forgot his own lore.
The Hidden Villages where just that- NINJA CLANS- that gathered in one country and -served- the COUNTRY and the Daimyo of that country as scouts, soldiers, assasins, and had proxy wars for dominance.
They received money and resources in exchange for everything- it's why Konoha doesnt have vast tracts of farmland to support it's infrastructure- they received money and goods from the villages. If you pay FUCKING ATTENTION to the series, occasionally you see the Daimyos talking about MONEY and the FUCKING FACT THAT THEY GET TO PICK WHO BECOMES HOKAGE.
For fuck's sake, it's like the author doesnt remember his own lore.
I guarantee you that at least a few Daimyo or two or three would have used the chaos and result of the Ten Tails Event to further his own agenda with assasinations and conquest.
The plot is stupid.
It's absolutely criminal Naruto didn't have a little girl that would grow up to be Naruko.
>tfw getting wet on /a/ of all places
Er, no they fucking didnt.
Konoha and all the Villages served at the pleasure of the Daimyos and received money and resources for their efforts.
Where the fuck do you think the money and food for the hidden village came from? Do you recall farmlands in Konoha?
No. There isnt any.
Dude, Kishimoto is only good for writing homoerotic relationships.
Part of the reason I don't want Salad and Burrito (or any other of the new kids)to ever enter in romantic relationship is because he will mess it up.
I love the Naruhina end, but him leaving it to peripherial media to retcon shit and fill holes it should have been fixed in.the manga itself screams how incompetent he is with this.
>implying Himawari won't grow up to be black haired Naruko
>twintails and all
Either that or she'll grow up like mommy. Either way she's going to leave many a heart broken and dick sore.
Is there a Europe equivalent in Ninja Land? How would they fare against Naruto and friends?
>Part of the reason I don't want Salad and Burrito (or any other of the new kids)to ever enter in romantic relationship is because he will mess it up
But he's not writing it. That's the point. His assistant is taking over the next generation for him.
That's why this whole thing has a chance to be decent in the first place.
yeah sasuke got his first tomoe's when itachi killed the clan.
I actually thought that the awakening the sharing an thing was cool in a way but I think it got ruined half way.
I theorized that you get a different stage of the eye depending on certain events as shown.
Obito's gets second stage sharing an when he protects kakashi, sasuke gets second level sharing an when he tries to protect naruto from haku.
So theroticlly protecting a friend gets you stage 2
then sasuke got the third eye part when he severed bonds with naruto, awakening part 3 which made sense that kakshi had a level 3 because he severed ties with obito and let him die. (kind of)
So betraying/ breaking a bond with your close friend awakens level 3
Then magenkyo is achieved by killing your closest friend (Whats really stupid is how this was the only sharigan level that was made CLEAR how to obtain it in the manga) Itachi and kakshi both had these, kakshi killed rin and itachi killed shisui, who were their closest friends. And thats how kakshi had a mangekyo sharing an.
(I was okay with the whole mangekyo sharingan form because that seemed to be recognized as the true final form of the eye)
Now I can't remember how sasuke got mangekyo cause he never did kill naruto but his brother. (the whole taking each others eyes got a little ridiculous after a while, the only reason I really give kakshi's a pass is because run was a medic ninja and could transplant the eye easily)
I thought it was an interesting premise that it seemed like the closer you become to someone the stronger the eye became but then it does a 180 and it becomes more powerful if you try to destroy those bonds. The biggest stage being killing your closest friend.
The only thing that annoys me is that the first stage is awoken by stress, which ruins the whole flow of the sharing an, It would of been better if stage one awakens by making a best friend.
