I'm legit curious, has any other shounen series ever done anything similar to this before? It's not just that it's a movie about romance, it's the fact that they used all romantic clichés in the book, enough to rival your typical shoujo.
Not OP, but I'm genuinely asking here. What other shonen series ended with a movie explaining the love life of the male MC after the original series? An explicitly romantic movie, at that?
Some people have brought up a Rurouni Kenshin movie that is all about Kenshin/Tomoe relationship, but that's backstory stuff to the main series, not a conclusion.
I admit that I don't watch anime movies enough. But can you give me a hint if there's another like it? Because as of right now I think The Last Naruto the Movie is the only example of a post-shounen series movie that chooses to focus on the romantic conclusion for the male MC. And I'm not comfortable saying Naruto is unique in anything.
tthe closest I can think of is Kenshin
that one didn't get its own movie, though
>BTW did any of Inuyasha movies were about romance?
as far as I remember, they weren't much more romantic than the series
I thought that one too. But it's not like it's got it's own movie. Then again, only long running shounens get movies. Would Bosu Renkin even count as a cheesy romance though? Still, it was pretty damn good.
> And I'm not comfortable saying Naruto is unique in anything.
In this case, you better get comfortable with saying it, because as far as I know Naruto is the only one.
Thank goodness that Studio Pierrot loves Hinata so much.
Why the hell does Hinata look so mad in OP's pic?
thinking about Naruto ignoring her confession for two years?
Reminder that best bro who was going to beat pink shit was sidelined bi kishi.
>Fat Anko got in the final chapter but Yamato didn't.
U-uh guys. I dropped Naruto at episode 100-ish back then. Do you want to seriously tell me that it's over? Like in over over? Like in no more sequels over over? I've been living under a rock behind the moon in terms of shounen to be honest.
It's still kinda annoying that they're making another filler arc complete with QUALITY just to introduce a female jinjuriki that will be killed anyway
>So how is there not a camrip if this out yet?
we only got 40 minutes of it because nips are too strict about camrips
philippines' premiere was delayed, out next best bet is Australia
>And what happened to people trying to get this movie to come to American theaters?
Its weird to see the Naruto is still wearing his part 1 outfit while the rest of K11 in the picture are already in their part 2 clothes. guess this filler will eventually show Naruto switching to his part 2 clothes.
>Bug chick standing next to Shino on the cover
I swear something better happen between the two of them!
God damn the manga is over just fucking finish it already
Reminder that by supporting Hinata, you are against women.
Yamato was such a best. Fuck Kishi for forgetting about him.
You can throw in that the the time he fucking finally reciprocates her feelings is when she has already steeled herself to go with Netori to abotage his plans and rescue her sister.
That brief look of joy quickly put under control and her rejecting Naruto was probably one of the better moments of the movie.
Poor girl generally needed more time to shine beyond her romantic stuff though.
Even if Naruto is the one who beats the bad guy, I'm glad they gave Hinata a brief moment to shine in The last.
At least she saves people in filler.
It is definitely winding down.
The main manga has ended in November, the anime is having some fillers but will likely end sometime in 2015.
There is some Live Action stuff in the works, mostly theatre but there were rumors of a movie of the whole story. No one's sure about it though.
Kishimoto will do a miniseries about Bolt in April about Bolt with a movie planned for August.
There are also rumors of the anime including some filler arcs between chapters 699 and 700, basically doing Naruto GT.
But beyond that (and do note that most of this stuff is merely rumors at this point, with only the April and August miniseries and movie confirmed) the series is done.
Maybe she wants to avoid eye strain. Or maybe she wants to just look badass. The real answer is probably that SP thought she looked less cute with the Byakugan on and so kept it off.
I'd be willing to roll with the explanation that while fighting puppets the whole chakra point thing of the magic eyes is useless, but they do also give you 360 vision.
Also while the Byakugan is rather odd looking, that's okay. Those people interested in this movie would probably be familiar with it and more scratching their heads at its non-use rather than be upset at its use.
>she calls him cute
>they have a ride on her bug beast
>mentions that her lifelong dream is to be a schoolteacher
>kissu on the cheek when they eventually part
>Shino's fucking face when he hears that she's a reanimated corpse fucking shit up, her beast sucked out
>becomes a school teacher to honor his waifu and dies a wizard
It is better to experience love and lose it rather than not experience it at all. And besides, it could help develop Shino's character.
>She also teaches Hinata what it means to love a Jinchuuriki
>Epilogue where Naruto personally tells him that Fuu is dead
>Shino swears to honor Fuu's wish of becoming someone who guides the new generation
>it could help develop Shino's character.
Is there anything to develop? The only things we know about him is that he likes bugs and that he really regrets not going on the Sasuke retrieval mission.
>Those lyrics from the Hinata character song from The Last
>Himawari was originally tiny babby
Hopefully this means she'll actually do something in the new series, but I'm not holding my breath.
I'm here for the /chipotle/ anyway.
Not directly NaruHina, but still Uzumaki Family. Does anyone know if the artist did anymore of these?
>I swear something better happen between the two of them!
What does it mater, anon? Even if they do meet each other
it'll only make the end even more painful.
I bet coming home every day is like walking into a porno for Naruto.
>Hinata spews hentai cliches during sex
This image is of course OOC because everyone knows Minato and Kushina wouldn't give a shit about their son's happiness as long as he didn't marry that bitchy pink haired girl. They'd hate Hinata so much.
There are people who legitimately believe this.
>she's got a fetish for watching herself get fucked by her husbando in x-ray vision
>watching him cum in her makes her lose her mind every time
>giddily watches him get a hardon at the sight of her
The ship sunk a while ago. All we're doing is combing through the wreckage on the bottom of the Dead Sea.
The Last threads will be great for a few weeks but then I think it's time to pack it in until Burrito starts in April.
What wreckage? That ship was completely destroyed. You literally can't destroy a ship any more than THAT.
Fuck, even the old Ranma warships have some fucking fight left in them.
There's a trend of Naruto saying "What is this adorable creature?" in regards to Hinata. In fairness, she is quite the adorable creature.
I think it may actually stem from the same sort of place as our love of NaruHina. They suffer a lot on the off chance that best girl wins, which would make it all worth it. But too frequently, she doesn't.
It wouldn't end, while OP is more popular in Japan, worldwide, Naruto is today Dragon Ball, and if you learned something with Dragon Ball, you will know that Pierrot is going to milk that shit until you're in your fucking grave.
So expect new series, movies, ovas, spinoffs and a fucking games with characterd thst not even the most hardcore Narutard knew that existed as playable.
I'm still in awe that fucking Nanashi of all people makes this saccharine goodness. I'm glad that his Hinata is super healthy, too.
Nanashi's been getting progressively lewder with NH. I hope he eventually cracks and does a full-on lewd doujin of the 2. I wanna see if he can even do full-on vanilla porn for starters.
Because her brother soaked up all the edgy genes lingering in the Uzumaki and Hyuuga gene pools.
If you could change one minor thing about Naruto, what would it be?
Mine is Madara as the Main villian.
I still hope he stays on the likeable side of being a little brat, protective of his imouto.
Best family needs to be intact.
>what would it be?
Sasuke never kills Itachi and goes full DARKNESS. Instead Coolest Guy blows the whistle while Itachi is still alive so he's there to slap some sense into Sauce before he does something stupid.
You think that's edgy? Check this shit out.
Pretty much that, there are a lot of questionable choices but Madara was a perfect final villain and he was the sole reason why the war arc wasn't complete and irredeemable shit.
Madara did pic related to the fucking five kage, killed ninja Jesus and his platonic boyfriend, captured all 9 tailed beast at once without breaking a sweat, manipulated Obito into doing all the coolest guy shit he did and shit-talked everyone he came in contact with.
How on earth did Kishi consider bunny goddess a more worthy final villain?
Lee opening tha gates inestead of Gai, since it would fit with the "The new generation always beat the old ones" idea of the series, also Lee's hardwork would hav a proposue since would be stronger than Neji and Gaara and in the same elvel of Naruto and Sasuke his rivals, finally Lee beating the crap of Madara could work as a revange for Neji.
He will be joining uncle Sausage in his movie, apparently.
Speculation is based on the trenchcoat he'll be playing ninja detective.
Because she's the best parts of her parents.
>Himawari: Da- daddy!
>Hinata: That's it! Good job, Himawari.
>All right! Quickly, go and say it to papa.
>Naruto: What's up, Himawari?
>Himawari: Uhm, uhm, I've been pwacticing!*
>Hinata: (Do your best, Himawari!)
>Naruto: ... Himawari....
>You zaid id gread!**
>Himawari: Papa, that hurts...
>Hinata: Well done, Himawari
>[Meanwhile, with Sasuke and Sakura]
*Himawari's a toddler so she has trouble with her words. She tries to say "Otouchan" but it ends up as "Otoushan."
**Naruto cries like the big softy he is so he also has trouble with his words.
>not seeing the motherfucking trenchcoat
He looks like he's about to *teleports behind you and unzips katana*
>*Himawari's a toddler so she has trouble with her words. She tries to say "Otouchan" but it ends up as "Otoushan."
She's also a clumsy retard.
I felt Kaguya would have been a lot better if Kishi hinted more to her being final boss like he did with Madara. He only started mentioning her in the final arc so that although it wasn't really surprising when she did actually made an appearance, there was still a lot of questions about her that never got fully answered in the end.
Who got whose genes again?
Makes sense. His family has a thing for capes and flowing clothing.
But the thing about harems is that they DON'T go there. They don't ever pay off. They poke and they prod and they tease about shit, and characters do all sorts of lewd shit over and over, and go back to start.
Yet, I still just enjoy watching two characters hold hands, and by the good grace of the Lord above, actually kiss without it being some fucking silly series gimmick.
The series doesn't even have to be about it the romance, just fucking deliver for once.
That's probably why most people want him to have the Byakugan eventually.
While OP against normal people, the Gentle Fist and recon abilities have decent limits as opposed to the Sharingan, while th use of the eyes would give him something relatively under-explored to play with, especially should he also learn his grandfather's teleport technique.
Mix in some Sage/frog stuff from his father and Jiraiya (the crazy hair thing and the swamp tech?) and he'd have a fair bit more versitality and potential for interesting fights than his father's grand total of two techniques.
It would also be fun to see the Hokage do some shit every now and then and DON'T use his signature Rasengan, having actually learned other shit in the meantime, maybe using it as a finishing move once.
>What happens when you're drunk?! Hinata-sama!!!
>Hinata: N-Naruto-kun... you w-were a-always... near me...
>1) Crying drunk.
>Hinata: Naruto-kuuun, I like you, I like yooou!
>Naruto: Hi-Hinata... that's a bit awkward.
>2) Excessive physical contact.
>Hinata: Naruto-kun, you're so handsome <3
>Naruto: C-calm down, Hinata!!
>Hinata: I've gotten a bit too warm...
>Naruto: Waaah! Time out! Time out!!
>Naruto: She's leaning on me!
>Naruto decided to try to stop Hinata from drinking in front of people.
>begin to see more fights like Naruto vs sasuke in part 1
>maybe bring back genjutsu
as soon itachi appearead if you didn't have a sharigan genjutsu was basically useless
>they create more"original" fighting styles like jinchiriki who makes bubbles
>While OP against normal people, the Gentle Fist and recon abilities have decent limits as opposed to the Sharingan
Not to mention we may even get to see a Byakugan vs. Sharingan match if Burrito and Salad ever square off.
And Burrito could abuse his Byakugan and go blind for a chapter because he spent too much time peeping through girls' clothing.
The fundamental problem is that while anyone can tease, do some light fanservice and perhaps even imply a relationship, it's pretty hard to deliver.
An actually realised, decent relationship that isn't over by the next episode is pretty much a dead end if what you want is DRAMA and lewd shit.
Also writing serious romance is fairly different from just doing some light pandering. I'm still thankful SP and Kishi decided to have someone experienced with that stuff work on The Last.
>has lightning, wind and sage chakra
>electrified knives, lightning-based powerup to the teleport tech
>wind-enhanced Kaiten to chop up everything around him
>if he wants to disable he uses Gentle Fist, if he needs to wreck shit he uses Frog Kata

This one is entitled "The unripe strawberry." Lewdness ahoy.
>Sakura: Waah! Looks delicious!
>Hinata: They're in season now, so the Hyuuga's patronage has supplied them.
>Hinata: Okay, Sakura-san, open wide.
>Sakura: Thank you, Hinata.
>They're super sweet and delicious!
>he becomes a speedster muscle ninja thanks to Sage Mode
>his elemental Gentle FIST destroys half a village
>Hinata: All right, Kiba-kun and Shino-kun, you too
>Kiba: Oh, thank you.
>Hinata: ... Eh?
>Naruto: Could I get a bite too?
>Hinata: N-... Naruto-kun...
>Hinata: Then... here you go...
>sfx: Rero (Naruto rolling his tongue over the strawberry)
>Hinata: (Excuse meeeee?!)
>sfx: GAH (Naruto grasping her wrist tightly)
>sfx: Amu (Naruto nibbling on the strawberry)
>An actually realized, decent relationship that isn't over by the next episode is pretty much a dead end if what you want is DRAMA and lewd shit.
You're right, I never considered that. It reminds me of how boring Usagi and Mamoru got whenever they were on the same screen together after the first series ended.
Seiya seems like such a fresh breathe of air because they're actually doing shit together instead of doting on one another.
>sfx: chuu (Naruto licking Hinata's fingers)
>It was incredibly sweet.
>Naruto: Huh? (Did I somehow do that?) Oooi, Hinataaa?
>Group: He's completely unaware!
>Thank you very much!
>Sorry, Grandpa. The Uzumaki are Konoha's strongest now.
The miniseries better have Hiashi as a jazzy grandfather spoiling the shit out of the fruits of his hard labor.
>Boruto wants to be hardcore but his imouto won't let him
I really hope the miniseries has some cute moments. Have some fun ninja adventures without all the bullshit that killed the original series by all means, but do have some cute family shit too.
Boruto and Himawari are yin and Yang as evidenced by their hair and clothing.
So, I watched Naruto up to the start of shippuden then stopped. Now that I know the best girl wins i'm considering picking it up again. Do I have to watch the whole sodding lot? Is there a good point to start midway?
You really should not, the anime is rather bad with how much filler there is, not to mention the varying quality of animation and the story being shit to start with.
If you want a sample of the better parts I recommend the Hidan/Kakuzu and Pain arcs (although the latter has fucking terrible animations once Naruto loses his shit at Hinata getting stabbed). Still, Jiraiya's fight, Naruto dealing with loss and growing as a character and learning Sage tech, plus on top of it all Hinata's confession more than makes up for it.
Can't you faggots at least stop posting the shit from shitty forums? They're not even worth laughing at and you're acting like there's anything amusing about anything a subhuman who browses tumblr says.
>popped collar, trench coat, is probably doing an internal monologue about getting too old for this shit
>Sarada wants him to help her with some real thing, he treats it as the hottie offering a job at the beginning of detective stories
>the scene is all noir, it's raining, soft jazz music in the background
>Himawari hops by sporting a bright, colorful umbrella, looking for him because mommy made cinnamon rolls and him and Sarada can come too, maybe make this a sleepover
>Naruto decided to try to stop Hinata from drinking in front of people. So that sentence at the very bottom just says this? Is Hinata and Naruto a 'wife' and a 'husband' at this point? Is that why Hinata's and Naruto's name is in furigana?
>we could have had a fun story of a lonely ninja kid growing up and making friends, eventually finding the right girl
>we could have had the Jinchuuriki being an interesting bunch of weirdos, each different but instantly sympathizing with each other
>we could have seen all the beasts and hosts trying to get along with each other
Compared to others this show let some romantic stuff have almost decent screentime/be a reasonable part of characters' motivation. The expectations were also very low so you had the power of surprise, plus the best girl winning was probably one of the very few things editor-kun didn't get his hands on.
Throw in the fact that Hinata was one of the few characters who actually got an arc and that her confession happened at the height of one of the best parts of character growth for the main character himself, and you got some uncharacteristically good stuff for the manga.
Real shame it was followed up by the Kage Summit's DARKNESS and the letdown that was the war.
Also if TL Anon is around I'd be pretty curious what this is about.
Well if you keep on teasing a pseudo-couple this is what you get when they finally make it.
Also seeing as one is a wizard schoolteacher with a dead waifu and the other seems to still be childless/unmarried as he watches his dog slowly die of old age the men of Team 8 really got the short part of the ending stick.
He's the only one who comments on the absurdity of Sasuke being accepted back after all he did. This made me realize Kishi is very much aware of the stupidity and went with it due to executive meddling while providing his own opinion through few pieces of dialogue. Or to trolls us all in his own way.
>The... the Naruto-kun of long ago... so cute... I thought you were cool, but...
>Who's this? This beautiful neechan... looks like Hinata??
>Hey, Hinata, the you of back then is suuuper cute! Ah, you're really cute now too, or should I say beautiful, but...!
>Naruto-kun... the old me is dying... put her down...
>Eh? What're you saying, Hinata?
>Na... Naru... Naruto-kun...? Big... Naruto-kun...
This pairing is just as good, right?
This version of all the possible fanmade future Himawaris is my favourite. It's adorable as fuck
Please stop drawing ghost MinaKushi Japan. It just makes me sad
I wish I understand what these ships mean. As far as I know they're fap material, just like Touhou.
Maybe learn some actual wind element techniques, like that one Danzo was spamming?
Also the fucker has not only all the elements and wood, but a number of more complex kekkei genkai ones too thanks to the beasts.
Surely he would learn some techniques that use them rather than just slapping them on top of his Rasengan?
In the middle of the war he improvised, but in the decade or so between The Last and Chapter 700 he had plenty of time to improve his versatility.
>“Not only Naruto, but also Hinata grows (into adulthood)… (they are) truly the best couple, right?”
Well the powerlevels are expected to drop back down to just minor superpowers appropriate for fresh Genin.
The Byakugan is powerful, but should he need to awaken it or unlock it in some way he could be inexperienced with it or at any rate use it as a support power.
No laser skeletons this time around, hopefully.
Once he's older an interesting thing could be a Byakugan-user Bolt who also uses Sage Mode, negating the blind spot of the eye and possibly enhancing the Gentle Fist with nature energy like >>119589028 and >>119589292 mention.
That's not very hard, out of that bunch.
I still wonder how Chouji and his jungle fever waifu worked out though. Supposedly both have self-consciousness issues about themselves.
Could be an interesting thing to touch upon, should SP actually do some semi-meaningful fillers between The Last and chapter 700.
Height difference you say
I never understood how anyone could read this manga and think that Naruto and Hinata wouldn't get together. It was obvious endgame for years, yet there were people even on /a/ that thought it wouldn't happen.
