Say what you want about Naruto, but it had some of the best openings.
Boruto Manga is the sequel of the original Naruto Manga and it will be based on the next generation of the ninjas, especially the offspring of the generation from Naruto Manga. This means that in 2016, we will see more Boruto and Sarada, the offspring of Naruto and Sasuke.
"Boruto: Naruto the Movie" sequel
The sequel for "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" was also noted to be in the works by Masashi Kishimoto. Although he didn't directly confirm production for the movie, he mentioned he was suprised about the success of "Boruto." He will supervise the direction of the sequel the same way he did with the original movie.
Itachi gets his own manga
Itachi will be featured as the main character of two novels, "The True Legend of Itachi: Glory" and "The True Legend of Itachi: Dark Night." According to the official description of the novels, "This is the story of the glory, frustration, and determination of the ninja called a genius." The novels will also feature Shisui Uchiha.
iDigitalTimes reported that following the two novels, an anime adaption for Itachi will also release in March 2016. It will be based on the two novels and will follow his and Shisui's tribulations before the Uchiha clan is wiped out.
"Itachi Uchiha, age four. After seeing what occurs on the battlefield up close, he makes a certain decision. He decided that he would change the world. The dream that Itachi aimed for. His dream: A Hokage from the Uchiha clan, and a future where those he loved could live in peace. His time in the ninja academy, his meeting with Shisui, becoming a Genin, Chunin, and finally a member of the Anbu... Itachi ran straight down a path of glory, not knowing that a cruel darkness was spreading..."
So Sakura is a codependent doormat, I get that, but why did Sasuke settle down with her? Let alone impregnate her?
Dude this is literally the place where faggots wander about to talk about nothing but moe tits and waifus.
You are in the wrong place if you want to talk to nice people or talk about good anime.
/a/ssholes are all the board is compromised of.
Actually, now you gotta deal with Naruto's son and Sasuke's daughter working through their hackneyed sexual tension.
>but why did Sasuke settle down with her? Let alone impregnate her?
>Need to restart your clan to create future Uchiwawas
>Hate everyone except Naruto
>Still gotta bang something though
>There's still that one stalker girl who likes you for some reason.
>kill parents that made their kid a pariah
>kill terrorist that destroyed your home
>kill faggot that bullied kids for not believing in fate
Naruto was secretly mad at those guys.
Pretty sure he did it cause he felt bad for Sakura
Like she had spent years chasing after him and had nothing else
He had to do something to get her to think they had a connection like he has with Nardo
>killing a bunch of crazy fags with special snowflake eyes
>declare war to a bunch of unrepentant killers
>still wanted to make everyone happy with tree magic
He was truly the coolest guy.
Do you think Naruto would have been a better anime if they had condensed everything, reworked the budget to contain OP/ED levels of good animation, and only focused on certain scenes and not everything in the manga + filler
Do you think that in 30 years we'll have a Naruto adaptation that is a remake of the original series?
All of the OP would be the same, but remixed to fit the current trend of music
There is no doubt in my mind we will get a Naruto Shippuden Kai, and quite possibly a Naruto Kai before that. Cuts out all filler, streamlines the series in much shorter time? Naruto will last some time, it'll get the same treatment as DB.
a fucking HxH rip-off but the soundtrack is gold.
And who could forget BACHKOI BABY
Or the party van ending
that pitch is altered, don't think this is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcqD49GtjrE
I'd watch a show about these two
I have a feeling that Himawari is going to resent Sarada for taking up so much of her onii-chan's attention, or at least feel a bit jealous.
>tfw naruto could have been a cool show about ninja friends doing ninja stuff together but instead became a show about a guy getting so ass blasted that his crush died be decided to kill a third of the ninja population
You would know, right? Go back there, and be a little bitch.
and then plot said that he only did all of that because some asshole that should've died hundreds of years before the story started was still alive and manipulated him and was responsible for all the other bad things going on to everyone.
and THEN it's revealed that he too was a pawn and the real mastermind was some asshole created from ninja god's mother who was an all-powerful being because she ate fruit from the tree of might.
yeah the plot sperged hard towards the end. The bullshit about muh ninja reincarnations was bullshit, sasuke's final betrayal was bullshit all because they clearly wanted one last final valley fight and the biggest bullshit was the 'hey don't worry that you killed the standing 6th hokage, a fuck ton of samurai, cut off the 4th raikages arm, invaded a high ranking military meeting, sided with the terrorists, tried to kill your closest friends, fuck it, you're part of the village now!
literally turned into asspull: the show
Not evne going to lie i will be watching this and the kaguya bullshit cause both their stories need to be fleshed out a little more.
We all know itachi was one of the strongest ninja, but kubo never really went into detail of his greatness aside from him being the hurr durr child prodigy bullshit.
Hopefully this shows his girlfriend and missions he went on with shinsui and how they became best friends and how itahci slowly became hateful towards the darker side leaf village.
I hope the kaguya story shows her past and how she bore 2 children(yes its safe to assume someone fucked the bitch or she reproduced asexually) and shows the beginings of the kaguya clan(kimimaros clan).
If the do this shit right, it could be better than all of naruto past fuck ups and shit story, but im not very optimistic
For regular sharingan is just an extreme emotional attachment similar to how super saiyan is achieved in dbz.
The dying only applies to the mangekyo sharingan.
>posting dumb shit in naruto threads and not knowing basic lore
Want to know how i know you dont belong in this thread?
Cause thats some basic ass shit
>Dont you need to kill a family member to activate eye aids?
Any mental stress stimulates the eyes.
Generally the more life threatening or sad the situation = more stressful.
Eyes activate for survival reasons.
The second level shit needs to have a close family member or friend die because of the emotional response.
Third level requires you to take the eyes of another user who had 2nd level.
Fourth level is some deus ex machina shit with no logic behind it.
You can hate any anime you want cuck.
Naruto while being a 2/10 anime to me still satisfied generations enough to last god damn 14 fucking years.
14 years, do you even realize how many of your subjective 10/10 animes have come and went without even finishing a season let alone coming back for a 2nd season?
You're a fucking newfag if you can't understand this logic.
It is one of the best animes of all time, simply because of the sheer amount of people who watched it and read the manga.
That will be objective as far as history is concerned.
Same for one piece and bleach and all of the other shit stories shonen puts up.
Kakashi in the manga spent every waking moment at either Rin or Obito's grave.
Every time he said he was late, every time he would just up and vanish.
At those two fucker's graves.
He is not there and I'm sure becoming Hokage was actually healthier for him than it is for Naruto, simply because it forced him to be busy constantly.
honestly had he not killed all the samurai, i wouldn't blame anyone else for just pardoning him.
danzo was basically just as much a villain as anyone else and none of that other stuff really mattered.
>Itachi gets his own manga
Actually it's just an anime adaptation filler arc of the two novels, but yeah.
It never ends.
>hackneyed sexual tension
Shit seems pretty mutual anon. No gay trips to the Valley to sort out pent-up feelings.
If by marry you mean succeed as Hokage, then yes.
> Why didn't you put the byakugan on two of the most important characters in the new series and the mainline hyuuga descendants, you fucking retard!?
>Lol, I forget.
>BUY MY BOOKS
It's got a lot of things going for and against it so it's hard to say. At least Kishi's only supervising and someone else is writing/illustrating so he can't go full Jorge with another space MILF from fucking nowhere. And the schedule's changed to monthly which means more time to edit and improve shit and think things through.
What a fucking faggot.
He overexplains the obvious and overlooks the possibility of Kishi just lying/bending the truth a little bit in that interview. Plus the Byakugan is far from being the sole route for Bolt to get strong (get the kid Sage Mode and Flying Thunuder God, bam, he is up there with Minato already). I'd like Bolt to get the Byakugan/Tenseigan, but there's plenty of other asspulls possible.
He's speculating on what could get Bolt pissed off enough to unlock it. He very briefly mentions it, it's just shallow clickbait.
This. And we all know what'll happen if he does get it for maximum pottery. A redux of the Haku fight except instead of Fox mode it'll be Bort poking someone to death.
Truth be told the whole unlocking angle on the Byakugan makes me wonder how Hinata and Neji got theirs, especially if it is independent from the eyes looking naturally white to begin with.
Hinata I could see developing it when she was kidnapped (since we never see her mother it's feasible she was killed in that whole thing). For Neji it should be when his father was BTFO'd by the main branch when he got angry watching Hiashi's kids, I suppose.
>Wait so now we gotta deal with Naruto's son and Sasuke's son touching dicks?
along with their dads
>Truth be told the whole unlocking angle on the Byakugan makes me wonder how Hinata and Neji got theirs
No clue. Neji probably got his when daddy died but Hinata it's tough to say. Anyway I hope that's explained better in the future.
Honestly I'd like Bort to get it just because it'd connect to his heritage and would finally stop sucking since the MC has it.
Intentional or not, it's neat that with fewer whisker marks he has room on his face for the eye veins getting fucked.
I'd still prefer the manga to be about Himawari, but I'll take just some fun/cute family stuff.
That's part of the reason I think Kishi's a lying bastard or he somehow designed that intentionally and then forgot to add the Byakugan.
But it works. Look at Himawari. 2 whiskers is the way to go.
It never sucked, rather it just became irrelevant in part 2 onward, since no user of Byakugan was a main character so much.
You have shutting people down, full rotation defense, empty palm distance strike, its got a lot going on. Even during the war arc you had Neji repel the ten tails for a brief moment in order to remind people "Yeah, this guy is kind of a genius still, above most people out there.
They were always good, but they just kind of faded off after awhile, since there was no way to really bullshit putting any main focus on them. As long as you're one of the main guys, you are golden, you'll keep being relevant along with your ability somehow.
>was that the only way?
>did really neji have to die for naruto to get paired with hinata?
Not at all, he died to complete his character arc and reconnect with his father.
His death has given the War Arc its best moment and one of very few actually good bits, which did indeed have some semi-romantic interaction between Hinata and Naruto in it, but that was hardly the point of it happening.
>was that the only way
Given that they got together properly two years later at the climax of an entirely different crisis, no.
Is that stated specifically anywhere, or just speculation? We do know all Hyuuga shown all had the white eyes, but that's not a necessary thing for it, as demonstrated by Himawari. Both Sharingan and Rinnegan have conditions to awaken them, so that would tilt the balance of probability to there being an unlock for the third eyehax too, given that we've seen someone actually unlocking it.
That probably makes sense. They've always been a bunch of cousin-fuckers anyway so maybe the switch variant in Himawari is just a mutation.
But I always saw the Byakugan as just being the veins.
It kinda makes sense when you think of it:
>Sharingan: get sad, kill your friends
>Byakugan: get really fucking pissed off
>Rinnegan: get chakra from Indra and Ashura
>Tenseigan: get Ootsutsuki chakra and a "pure" Byakugan from the main branch
Eyehax in this series are still fucking stupid though.
post the rest of it faggot
He and Hinata getting together had probably nothing to do with Neji dying there in the end. I'd almost say that Neji dying for Naruto was more of a gay moment for him and Naruto in a sense, because he chose to die in the name of Naruto, since Naruto called him a genius once. Because this guy believed in him as great, this guy wanted to live up to being great for him in the end.
Hinata jumps in the way to protect, but Neji jumps in instead like "No, I'm the one who's gotta protect him, this is my moment".
Early Sharingan and the Byakugan had it on a level where it was okay for a setting with giant demon foxes and water dragon attacks.
The Rinnegan, as a thing of divine power unseen since their equivalent of the Messiah, is forgivable but far too many people ended up having it. Keep it something exclusive to Pein at the height of power the series gets to and I'm willing to forgive it.
Now giant chakra skeletons, that is fucking retarded and wrong. I may have hated Sasuke as a character, but at least before he got the MS his fights were pretty okay (with a dash of asspull to save him), but five minutes after he got it he used nothing but Amaterasu and Susanoo.
This. That's why I'm excited for the new series. Salad only got 1 tomoe right now and Burrito will probably get the most underrated eyehax and school everyone else with it because it's actually useful as fuck.
One thing I liked about MS is that it was unique for everyone, but EMS and Susanoo ruined it.
Five years later or so, Naruto starts to realize "Huh, I'm starting to have odd feelings about Hinata suddenly, this is strange" because he went through puberty far too late to realize what love was actually like before that point.
The girl apparently confessed to him twice over the years, and he misunderstood it both times. In order to realize he liked her all he had to realize is that she liked him, and then he starts to think about the relationship "Maybe there is something there come to think about it".
I mean that goes beyond just being dense, but for them to get together it was surprisingly simple in the end. All he had to realize was "Oh, that's what she meant for all those years".
He's not just after any girl that likes him, since he had hundreds of fangirls after the war, but seeing how much she loved him or tried over the years really did create an odd effect. Even before he knew her feelings though, it seemed like he felt the same in a way even if he wasn't sure what that feeling was yet, since he was thinking about her lately and tried inviting her to eat some ramen in his room.
Its oddly the most dense thing I've seen out of a shounen MC to date; despite how obvious it was he didn't see any of the signs from her, and he himself may have felt the same in some respects, but he never considered what those feelings meant until he realized that she liked him, at which point he decided this was a thing he was interested in.
Spirit of Neji lives on, considering Naruto named his first child after him. Also his ghost appeared before Rock Lee right before Hinata's wedding, to tell him what to get Hinata, and Lee completely fucked it up and got dumbells instead.
>Also his ghost appeared before Rock Lee right before Hinata's wedding, to tell him what to get Hinata, and Lee completely fucked it up and got dumbells instead.
didn't he couldn't remember what Neji said in his dream?
Real Shame Jiraiya never met Hinata. He'd have given Naruto a right kick in the ass, then teased them to death, finally giving him an actual fatherly talk or something.
I think he just couldn't understand it, so he interpreted it in his own way entirely.
Gai-sensei also helped him misinterpret it in a sense, as they both chipped in to buy her one dumbell each for her wedding. Rock Lee did this after imagining himself as a bride for awhile, and realizing that a bride has to be strong to raise kids, so you need dumbells to be strong.
We needed more scenes of the characters just interacting in general.
Hopefully Bort manga has more of it, since power levels are toned all the way down.
I called it hackneyed because everyone can see they're going to end up together, but we're probably going to see them stumble around the issue until they finally confess to each other. I guess "unneeded" is a better word here.
It is. Personally I don't mind because they're like the third "couple" in the entire series who don't have some retarded "tsundere"/love triangle and just seem to like each other with little to no drama involved.
But yeah if you're at all surprised by this you're basically fucking retarded.
i'd rather have sarada and chouchou team up adventures
I wonder if they're gonna slut up the sunflower like they did Salad for the new series.
Oh yeah I forgot she wore stockings. Absolute territory can't be beat.
EMS and Susanoo was perfectly fine when it was part of Sasuke's Choku-Tomoe as transmigrant just like Madara and Indra, it got silly when Kakashi and even Shisui could do it too and fucking retarded too.
>Boruto Manga is the sequel of the original Naruto Manga and it will be based on the next generation of the ninjas, especially the offspring of the generation from Naruto Manga. This means that in 2016, we will see more Boruto and Sarada, the offspring of Naruto and Sasuke.
Why am I actually excited about this? I mean we all know it's going to be shit but I still want to read it for some reason.
Also is Kishi going to be involved with it?
>would like to like it again if it was like the beginning?
I'd like it again if it's like the spin-off. Let's all hope they continue to shit on Suckura and the shippers.
>January 14, 2016
>Still no grown up Chou doujins
Sometime around March-April. Anyway, it sounds pretty good but the art is eh. Hopefully it improves.
The worst thing about this art is just Bort
Second: Chou-Chou and her mother are in the cast, and that means half the cloud village might show up.
Plenty of blacks is what I'm saying. Which is a smart move because blacks love Naruto.
Oh sweet baby jesus
Check those hips/thighs/legs
If she hits puberty over the course of the series, it's all but guaranteed.
Makes for a great reaction face though.
Two of the new generation's Cloud team are white as snow.
Hyuuga are still strongest in the Leaf
The fucking skyscrapers are so dumb.
Like, fuck kishi, why'd they have to be super modern glass skyscrapers, that shit clashes with the aesthetic so much. He could've put in those rad-ass Kumogakure skyscrapers, the one with the pipes and statues and sick neon boxes and shit.
Because that'd mean he'd have to do work in his place.
I can see them having shorter timeskips than the main series to show off how fast the new kids progress. If nardo hit his peak at 16-17, then his son will probably do so around 15.
>Every human has two arms
>Sauce isn't human
What does that mean for the daughter of a non-human?
I was being hyperbolic.
Does anyone happen to have the female kage's legs from the Bort movie?
>go into thread of thing
>never read thing
Okay, I would say "That makes sense." But I can't conprehend not being attracted to a girl like that.
There are guys that don't like that?
After everything you said, calling us retards is the last thing I expect, you said yourself you haven't read up, so why don't you fuck off and do some reading you lazy waste of shit.
Good as new if the wedding photo is to be believed. He wears it because it's a symbol of his fight with Sausage or something because he's that gay. Burrito got his arm all fucked up fighting an alien and he stopped wearing the bandage after it healed.
Wasn't that just a fuckup on SP's part?
Also healed burn marks isn't quite the same as the whole limb being prosthetic.
Then again depending on how much of his super special powers he retained, Naruto could technically grow back his arm entirely, right?
Undisputed best opening right here
Some cute SFW fluff coming soon, and Attaka Uzumaki 2 whenever good scans are up.
buyfag here, I plan on waiting on my shipment due a certain Naruto convention in Japan, so I can ship more doujin in one go, means my original plans on shipping it mid january are delayed
I also have Attaka Uzumaki 2 in the list
>Jiraiya trained Nagato, who ended up killing him
>Orochimaru trained Sasuke, who ended up killing him

I wonder if he drops by every now and again, warning her to watch out and reminding her that her pupil is kind of an unstable cunt.
tumblrdraws better than this
>Itachi, Madara, Obito and Sauce, 4 of the most powerful beings in the Nardoverse, all aimed to be hokage at some point
>they all failed and a girl with glasses will end up becoming the first Uchiha hokage
>but kubo never really went into detail of his greatness aside from him being the hurr durr child prodigy bullshit.
He did, repeatedly
Naruto is the one that doesn't want to hang out with his family or even leave his office, unless Sauce sends him a letter then he's all like "I better drop everything I'm doing and leave the village to go shank some little kid with the other most powerful being in the planet"
I wonder how Naruto would react if he found out Obitto killed best girl.
Makes be pissed someone with such a well written and important back story was completely forgotten after her death. It would of been awesome if the Amegakure ninja showed up at some point in the middle of the battle against Madara and Obitto to avenge their leader and fulfill her beliefs. This is Kishi we are talking about though; he always sets up the potential for something great then completely forgets about it and/or shits on it.
Obito killed his parents and over 50,000 ninjas and he stil called him the coolest guy and cried for his death.
Being responsible for another death won't make Naruto change his mind.
To be fair, that guy did MOST of the ninja stuff in the manga.
>Used a false identity
>Never showed his face
>Made elaborate hidden plans
>Killed a ton of people
>Obitto killed best girl.
>Makes be pissed someone with such a well written and important back story was completely forgotten after her death. It would of been awesome if the Amegakure ninja showed up at some point in the middle of the battle against Madara and Obitto to avenge their leader and fulfill her beliefs.
this is now a Konan thread, post Konan
There wasn't any pottery whatsoever between the ame orphans and team 7 besides all of them having different hair and eye colors, like most of the relevant teams.

new english translated NH doujin:

Man, he's really been going full tilt with this pairing since The Last got announced/series ended. And it's kind of surprising given his past work as well.
She got second hand TnJ'd, all of Naruto's TnJ victims turn into lifeless husks of their former selfes and become incapable of thinking about anything other than about how awesome and perfect Naruto is.
She is better off dead than endlessly sucking Naruto's dick like it happened to Gaara and Neji.
>"Hey Boruto, want to make all the prisoners fight each other?"
>Oh fuck yeah! Man this place is great, Dad would never let me have fun like that!
But seriously Mitsuki seems surprisingly stable for Orochimaru's kid. I guess he either doesn't have much to do with his MomDad, team Taka raised him or Orochimaru kept the more grizzly shit away from him.
Wait, Orochimaru isn't even able of doing most of the fucked up shit anymore anyways, is he?
Orochimaru simply turned out to be a better dad than Naruto and Sasuke
well he looks more of Orochimaru's old body rather than Toneri
>jack off before you change to female body then inseminate yourself
and kids thats how Oro became pregnant
>not hoping that she stays taller than Bort
>Wait, Orochimaru isn't even able of doing most of the fucked up shit anymore anyways, is he?
He may or may not have gotten himself pregnant by inseminating his new body with his old one and then gave birth to his own son who he is the mother and father of.
Anyway Mitsuki's a rad little dude and probably one of the best of the new generation.
>implying he's not going to shoot up like his father since he actually has a decent diet
>dem chiseled Hyuuga features
Salad's lucky she's locking that shit down early.
Not to mention that he'll be the next coming of his granddad in terms of haxness, just even stronger.
She's lucky that he already decided to dedicate his life to protecting her, shit would get tricky for her trying to get his
On the topic of that, does anyone else think it's crazy that that scene about Bolt's eyes made it into the movie? It's so blatant it's incredible
It does wonders that the new third-wheel autist isn't a replacement of a popular character, acknowledges that he is a third wheel and is the son of fucking Orochimaru.
>Not to mention that he'll be the next coming of his granddad in terms of haxness, just even stronger.
So far he seems more like the next coming of his dad. We're told he's a prodigy but in the movie he seemed like the shittest ninja in his team.
He seems like that because he doesn't try anything on his own because of low self esteem.
The little nigga learned to use three elements, learned Rasengan in record time (and can form it with one hand), instantly created and learned a Rasenshuriken technique, handled the massive chakra that his dad gave him just fine, apparently instantly learned Kage-bunshin, learned Sasuke shuriken tech even though it seems to be his weakness, has Jounin level Taijutsu and is able to at least use the gentle fist on an elementary level without even having Byakugan- and his goal is to become stronger than his dad.
I don't doubt him, frankly.
Bort is the biggest disappointment since my son.
All the trailers hyped him up to be an awesome prodigy, that knew both chidori and rasengan and was going to beat up the head ayylien by himself.
Movie comes out and all he does is use a max of 4 shadow clones and his special snowflake rasengan, most of his cool skills were done with a cheating device, he doesn't appear to be very smart, he gets rekt by mist fodder, he loses against fucking Shikadai and needs daddy's juice to even use the attack that kills Momo.
Kishi learned from his mistakes I guess. I think this is the best incarnation of Team 7 we've seen since the Sannin, maybe even better.
>Rasengan in record time (and can form it with one hand), instantly created and learned a Rasenshuriken technique
He didn't learn any of that, he learned how to do a failed rasengan did accidentally had an element added to it and was still fairly shit.
>has Jounin level Taijutsu and is able to at least use the gentle fist on an elementary level without even having Byakugan- and his goal is to become stronger than his dad.
Souce on this? I don't remember this being mentionned in the movie.
>not realizing that he's even more OP than we ever thought possible
It's just that he hasn't even begun to hit his true potential because of his own personal problems.
Nigga what are you talking about.
He didn't learn Chidori, so what? He learned a tech on the level of something instantly that Nardo needed thousands and thousands of clones for- a tech that the fourth couldn't complete at all. He's waaay to fucking strong for a genin his age.
Not to mention that he was pretty smart in the fight against Momoshiki.
He only lost and used the device because he's had some massive self esteem issues.
On his own I can see him take early Shippuden Naruto in a pretty good majority of fights.
Well he uses the gentle fist in the movie and he's described as having jounin level tech in the novelization.
Yeah I know.
Also that technique wasn't shitty dude, it was only "shitty" because it was used against a fucking ayylien god.
Against even any jounin? That shit woulda merked em in one hit.
You don't remember? He cheated to gain Sauce's approval because he thought his Rasengan was too small, but in reality it's because he accidentally an S-rank technique in four fucking days when it took his father weeks/months, thousands of shadow clones to grind EXP and even then couldn't be used effectively until he learned Sage Mode.
Bort did all that, no clones, two hands. Something nardo couldn't do until gaining Jesus' chakra and an inherent understanding of all natural things.
Also his Rasengan is full-sized by the end of the movie anyway.
Honestly, I liked the manga for the first few volumes. I feel like it jumped the shark after the Chuunin exams.
I was going to make a thread to see if anyone felt the same way but here's fine.
>On his own I can see him take early Shippuden Naruto in a pretty good majority of fights
At least up until Sage Mode and without the Kyuubi, yeah.
Maybe, it only scratched a tree when he first used it. But that doesn't matter since its properties are fucking ridiculous to begin with. Once he can really fill it up with chakra it'll be one of the most OP things in the whole damn series.
>Barely puts a dent in a tree
>Implying that wouldn't kill someone easily
Man most people don't have superhuman defenses, not even Ninja. The ones that do have some sort of skill asociated with it.
a normal rasengan obliterates trees and those don't kill anyone. Bones are stronger than wood.
He'd do some damage with it sure, if he manages to hit someone, but calling it on a level with rasenshuriken is just retarded.
well, remember that he has Hyuga genes, that means a very fine chakra control. No wonder he could all that, besides having a bit of Kurama's chakra and (probably) having some of Asura Otsutsuki's chakra and Hamura Otsutsuki's chakra. If Himawari isn't a prodigy when she grows up, like Boruto (and probably surpasing him), it would be so damn dissapointing
Konohamaru. Dem Sarutobi genes
I want Kakashi back
he was the real main character
>but calling it on a level with rasenshuriken is just retarded
You're right. It's actually worse. But when people say that they mean the level of difficulty acquisition is on par with the Rasenshuriken since it fills all the criteria for being an S-rank technique and the kid did it on the fly with no clones.
Power-wise it doesn't compare but how the fuck do you counter a technique like that?
A normal Rasengan should easily have the power to kill someone- as seen when Kabuto got fucked up super bad by one, despite overhealing
I also didn't mean that it's on the same level as the Rasenshuriken on a damage level, but as a technique- it's incredibly broken, an infusion of elemental chakra into a Rasengan and easily S-Level.
It's kinda sad how much he got shafted in the next gen stuff. All he has done is get his spa day ruined by Naruto, he had like 5 minutes of screentime in the movie where he was hokage (where he was portrayed as a weakling that needed Sauce to save his village) and he didn't even have lines in the Boruto movie.
I never made it that far. I stopped keeping up with it after the Chuunin exams but I maintained a detached interest.
After the timeskip I dropped it completely.
The Chuunin exams marked the point where it became less of an interesting story about members of a society trying to make their way in life in what looked like it was going to be a well-crafted and interesting world. Instead the narrative lens zooms way in and we go from seeing the life and times of the ninja to seeing The Struggle of A Few.
At least, that's what I could tell. Like I said, lost interest and eventually dropped it altogether.
>did it on the fly with no clones.
Accidentally, meaning no skill involved.
I don't get why you people are argueing this. Again it's a good thing that shit doesn't come too easy for Bort, if it did the upcoming manga would be boring as hell.
He doesn't have Kyuubi chakra, the whiskers are just a birth trait from having a Jinchuuriki parent.
Still, the mixture of giant chakra reserves and pinpoint chakra control is nothing to shake a stick at. Even if he has nowhere close the level as his father, he probably uses it way more efficiently.
Nigger the very fucking first arc was the struggle of a few, it very clearly focused on couple of characters and established them as the main trio with a teacher
you can shove your special snowflake "mature approach to nature discussion" up your ass it's either your first day on /a/ or you know damn well everyone thinks the show went to shit after the exams and are just pretending for whatever reason, probably for attention. Like tripfags
You see the damage that someone with absolute garbage levels of chakra like Sakura can do with good control.
Now imagine that shit times ten.
Plus he'll probably get Sage mode from somewhere, so most of the damage of not having outrageous chakra levels is already moot.
>Say what you want about Naruto
I honestly think this series is an extended IQ test, the longer you stick with it the lower yours is.
If you're still a fan after:
Itachi turns out to have been good all along - sb 100 IQ
Mass resurrection was a thing - sub 90 IQ
Mass resurrection continued to be a thing - sub 80 IQ
10 tailed beast - sub 70 IQ
Final bad guy is some guys mom - sub 40 IQ and someone is reading this post to you
I think they'll jump to Sarada directly, Konohamaru is now just a comic relief character.
If Kakashi didn't get to do shit as hokage other than to keep the seat warm for Naruto then what's even the point of making Konohamaru hokage?
>Accidentally, meaning no skill involved.
Actually it was a lot of skill, its just that he's a natural genius, like Itachi or Sasuke, so things that are incredibly technical or skill based can sometimes come easily for him.
He mastered Rasengan in a few days, that is a showing of how his genius works, he's got too much skill if anything.
You somehow can't undertstand how a story can work even if a character is strong or skilled though I guess. Its just like it was in the movie, his flaws and character faults don't come from not being strong enough, they come from his character lacking in several ways, along with emotional issues.
Even with all the shit that happened in the movie, he's still got a lot of character and emotional faults at the end of the day.
His skill is balanced out by his personality lacking in several ways; also even if he has the skill to create some new technique easily, he still fucks up in a lot of situations or is taken off guard easily, compared to salad and Mitsuki who have more experience at times.
He whacks nardo on the head with a book.
Pretty much. nardo said he'd become Hokage, not he'd stay Hokage forever. When he feels the time is right, he'll probably pass the torch.
>Accidentally, meaning no skill involved
Anon, that actually means he's more skilled because he did it intuitively. It's like someone who could paint the Mona Lisa with their eyes closed.
Obviously the first part would have had to focus on the main 3-4 characters to get them developed. But then as the tests are coming up we're getting introduced to all these new characters and new abilities and it looks like we're going to suddenly have a much wider and more varied cast - oh boy buckle up your seat belts because...
...it's fucking nothing.
The village is now a sprawling metropolis and he's got to keep tabs on all 5 villages instead of just his own. If anything being Hokage's harder than ever. It's like trying to be president, but he's doing it by himself like a retard.
That's literally never the case though, none of the newly introduced characters are made out to become the focus in any way. They're just slightly fleshed out side characters who stay that way to the end. The focus is ALWAYS on naruto and sasuke, this doesn't change at any point in the series
He already has assistants. But he doesn't want to shove his workload on other people.
Remember the whole "The whole village is my family stuff"?
He feels responsible. Too much even. That's a character flaw.
>He mastered Rasengan in a few days
No he didn't, it was an incomplete rasengan. He and Sauce both said so. It just had an element in it somewhere.
>You somehow can't undertstand how a story can work even if a character is strong or skilled though I guess.
You don't seem to understand that tension comes from danger. If you make Bort too strong, the enemies will need to be even stronger and you'll get shit like the later parts of shippuden that have 0 tactics and just consist of energy ball spamming.
>No he didn't, it was an incomplete rasengan. He and Sauce both said so. It just had an element in it somewhere
That means it's complete, just small. Rasengan is by itself an incomplete technique. It's the addition of an element that makes it complete. Bort's Vanishing Rasengan is a complete jutsu.
>Have a fuckton of material (and potential) to do some filler arcs for the anime using all the time between battle with Kaguya to after The Last movie
>"Just let's do a shitty filler of "what if" with the teams when they were kids, but without changing too much the original story and the original gay focus between Naruto and Sasuke"
fuck with them
>not realizing that they're all OP as shit
Salad's stronger than her mom was for 80% of the series. Boruto could take on his dad until the Pain arc and Mitsuki is a wild card but can keep up with them just fine so he's gotta be something special.
In fact all the next gen kids are better than their parents.
>No he didn't, it was an incomplete rasengan. He and Sauce both said so. It just had an element in it somewhere.
Go watch the movie again, Bolt and Sasuke thought it was incomplete at first, until Salad pointed out it was just different.
It worked differently and better than the normal rasengan. Since it was different; Bolt and Sasuke thought it was a failure, until she pointed out that it did hit.
After that Sasuke realized it was complete, but it was his own version of rasengan.
they should've just made more filler about the older characters, the kakashi / itachi filler arc was better than the real fucking story, I'm sure they could've made something like that about Tobirama and co for example, or young Danzo or something
>Rasengan is by itself an incomplete technique
Don't argue semantics, the rasengan itself was obviously imperfect.
>It's the addition of an element that makes it complete. Bort's Vanishing Rasengan is a complete jutsu.
Again, not true, Rasenshuriken wasn't created by simply adding wind to a rasengan. When Naruto first did it, it wasn't a rasenshuriken. Bort's rasenwhatever isn't complete since the rasengan wasn't perfect and the adding of the element wasn't finetuned. Do they even know what element he added to it?
Also this just occured to me, it took Naruto all but an afternoon to add wind to his rasengan. He just needed to figure out to use a clone. All the training before that was just him learning how to use wind.
>tfw no Hashirama/Madara/Tobirama/loli Tsunade stuff
Bottom couple made Mitsuki. When are we going to see Guy and Kakashi's kid?
>It worked differently and better than the normal rasengan.
There is a clear difference to what both techniques do to a tree. Stop pulling shit out of your ass.
That's not really the point. Also I wouldn't be sure about Nurutu vs Bort. Naruto's stamina and determination might pull him through. Bort seems to lack the determination.
>Do they even know what element he added to it?
Nope, but people say Wind.
But you're missing the point. The level of difficulty to do what nardo and Bort did is the same, one just did it accidentally and without clones which was impossible for nardo to do until he literally became Jesus.
>Maybe he is hung like a horse and that's why she liked him to start out with.
Probably not, Sai said he had a tiny dick and he gets jealous about Shino's giant "bug" between his legs.
And if the SD stuff is meant to be canon then Neji and Sauce are hung too.
>But you're missing the point. The level of difficulty to do what nardo and Bort did is the same, one just did it accidentally
I think you're missing what actually happened with Bort's rasengan.
He seems to have unconciously replaced one of the steps with adding the element, that's why it's smaller and weaker.
>The fact you're comparing him to Shippuden nardo because he'd kick regular nardo's ass like nothing demonstrates his talent.
I'm not comparing him to shippuden nardo at all. His rasengan is weaker than Naruto's was in part 1. Besides that he also is worse at Shadow clones. From what we've seen from Bort he's not better than Naruto. We're just told he is. But that wasn't my point, we're often reminded in the manga that determination makes ninja and Nardo has that in throves, unlike Bort. That's why I think he might win.
It's for the Konoha 11 kids only.
It's smaller/weaker because he didn't put much chakra into it, probably because he was unintentionally adding an element. He does a vanilla version at the end of the movie just before the credits and it's fine.
>Boruto did all of those.
The fact that it's not considered an actual rasengan says otherwise.
>Its not weaker or really smaller
I'm tired of repeating this, LOOK AT THE FUCKING TREES.
To be honest I think we're putting more thought into this than Kishi ever did.
>It's for the Konoha 11 kids only.
Why does SP keep pretending that they are the main characters? Kishi certainly doesn't.
>mfw show with Asian Kung Fu generation OP this season
>Quality > quantity
Naruto's shadowclones were discribed as perfect. But you bring your 4 Marines and I'll bring my 1000 guys with pitchforks and we'll see who wins.
I'm tired of repeating myself.
>nardo couldn't do that many in part 1 without the fox helping him out.
He used hundreds in the forest of death against the snorkel guys after Orochimaru sealed away the fox's powers.
You think that would be a good idea considering how rage prone Uch are?
They might cause severe damage in the process of awakening the eyes.
Also it's implied some magical bullshit to upgrade them, a fake death would not work.
Kakashi's eyes only upgraded because Rin was killed in front of Obito and he loved her, Kakashi assumed the eyes automatically did it, but it was only through luck and the bad guys scheme that Obito was there to see it.
If it was faked the eyes probably wouldn't second level. Itachi explains it pretty clearly that you must be involved in the death of your loved one.
That's what I mean, anyone with the curse seal actively has a portion of Orochi in them, just like Naruto's clones who can learn experience Orochi can extract himself from the curse seal and learn all of it's experiences.
He is also technically immortal in this sense as his body could die and he would just spawn from Mitsuki at any point he wanted to, but would lose all the experiences that happened since the curse seal was put on.
He said he extracted Kabutos "Orochi" persona and learned everything that was going on from it.
Anko technically has a seal on her also, he probably has been stealing info from her for years.
I'm watching the Boruto movie for the first time right now.
I'm an hour in and
Narutojust got fucking job'd like he didn't just save the world a couple years ago.
Like, what the fuck? Can a motherfucking
anime protagonisthave a goddamn fatherfor once?
Well, at least
hinata is still alive, she also got fucked up for some reason. Jesus Christ she's going to die too, isn't she?
Rant done. I don't even come here often, I just wanted to get that out of the way.
