What is with this garbage artwork? God I miss Kishimoto.
>Preferring Assistant-kun's "Art" to Kishimoto's "Art"
I'd rather have Kishimoto's artstyle over Assistant-kun any day of the week.
Posting best characyers
Hey good news though, they gave her tits back
Bort honestly reminds me of one of those linkin park kids who would burn their house down just to spite their parents for never paying attention to him. He's constantly angry and so wound up I'm almost sure he'd be the type who cries at his dead parents for dying without getting his permission or for once again ignoring him again.
It's not really that bad, and I've no doubt it will get better as we go along.
Wasn't there some drawing by the artist that showed Bort would be getting a charka mode and Salad would get the next level of the Sharingan? Though Bort's special ability would come from the tatoo we saw in the flashforward.
Bleach and Naruto fans always had shit standards, otherwise they would have stopped reading those manga.
One Piece is harder to judge because the art style is supposed to be cartoony and bizarre.
I'm not well versed in the other shounen jump series so I can't badmouth them yet.
I've always been able to enjoy shit, I'm bacially this guy. And I'm proud of it. - a "Narutard"
Can we address this bullshit? I kinda had hopes for this even just to "reset" the bullshit powerups and the whole power creep thing back to its beginning to have some actual fights using tactics and shit, but with the new pocket jutsu firing pipboy and shikasons shadow bullshit it seems thats not happening.
>I kinda had hopes for this even just to "reset" the bullshit powerups and the whole power creep thing back to its beginning to have some actual fights using tactics and shit
What are you, stupid?
Either that was just fanart or we're in for some serious powerlevel bullshit.
It's not details i'm after, it's being able to keep the slightest hint of consistency, to draw a uniform line, and don't have your characters look disfigured.
He was always a meh artist, and personally i never liked his style, but the things he's putting out now are below newbie doujin publisher.
He should know it's a good time to quit then. I'm amazed he has such a huge retard crowd that continues to buy his crap. Art aside, even the story went to shit not a lot after CA ended.
Staff listings for August episodes. Looks like the rest of the Kaguya fight will be getting average in-house and outsourced teams. Pierrot are probably saving the best animators for Naruto vs Sasuke.

>implying Kishi couldn't draw
Story telling aside, the dudes artwork is unquestionably top tier for weekly work
This new stuff would be passable to stand alone but next to it's predecessor standard it's ugly
Tactics were still used right up until the end.
Even at the heights of their power they were still using martial arts and jutsu to work around their frailties, this meme that it became dragonball z is just a glance across the surface of it.
The end of the Boruto movie is a good example of what I'm talking about.
>I hate Naruto so blindly that I refuse to acknowledge it's good artwork
You're the retard here, Son.
Kishi has a comprehensive understanding of illustrating action and depth garnered from literally decades of work at a pro level.
You have what I can only imagine is a cock smothered in cheeto dust to supplement your apparent art expertise.
kishimoto can't shade, can't color, barely knows what perspective and anatomy are, draws terrible borderline unreadable fight scenes and his women look like trannies
l can think of a good dozen weekly shonen with better art than naruto
You guys know she'll cap out powerwise at the second level sharingan, right? She literally can't get past this point unless Sauske makes another child. When the power creep starts to happen it happens exponential and she'll be left behind.
Talking about the implant thing to get the eternal version? Couldn't she use those clone kids in Kabuto's care? Although I seem to remember the effect were better if the people were close relatives.
>barely knows what perspective and anatomy are
>I'll just spout Keywords and pretend I know anything
Kishi excels at those two things, especially. You clearly don't know jack shit.
Kishimoto has literally drawn art showing her at Mangekyo level, kek
Only former h-mangaka know how to draw attractive waifus. It's not like Oda's or Togashi's girls look any better.
Yeah, that what I meant when I wrote she would get past the second level of the sharingan and she can't get beyound that point, how is she gonna get the eternal-Mangekyo? She would need a family member's eyes.
See almost any with a series past a hundred. Some changes, tough, aren't for the better. Anyone got a chart or something that shows the evolution of the author's drawing style?
>see JoJo for example
Araki was always great, but his start was more than a little rocky, especially in the proportion department.
That's literally the worst example you could've given him.
It's painful, but at least it has moments of looking pretty and the shading/posing/etc are dynamic
Also Jojo has a heavy emphasis on comedy/being fairly silly in the first place
The anatomy is terrible, but unintentionally or not, it adds to the comedy/atmosphere
Kind of like One's drawings, but Araki has artistic merits outside of his shit anatomy
They improve for a while, but then they get complacent and get a little worse. At least the long running ones.
>Naruto's art peaked in late part 1
>Bleach's art peaked in early Arrancar
>One Piece's art peaked at Enies Lobby
>Berserk's art peaked at the Conviction arc
>Jojo's art peaked at Part 3 (weekly) and Part 7 (Monthly)
>Not sure when Ippo and Conan peaked specifically but their current artstyles are definitely lacking
What side character do you feel was underused? I would say Juugo since he the original curse mark which showed promise since Sauske lost his yet he became the designated jobber of group Taka. Sad.
Now that i think about it the whole Taka team never really amounted to much,
-Every single one of the Konaha kids except Shikamaru.
-The Mizukage. She didn't do anything.
Also not a character per say, but the Sound Village as a whole completely vanishes from the plot without explanation.
>What side character do you feel was underused?
If could make rough major changes to Naruto as to make it not suck what would they be?
Mine would be that Nenji died at Sauske's departure to give it more impact.
Less eyepower wank as the series went on.
No Ten tails and common origin between the demons.
Death should be more permanent, thinking Gaara here and the villages who got resurrected by Pein.
-Have Chouji and Neji die for real during the Sasuke Retrieval arc. Their deaths can be used as motivation/development for the other characters
-Most importantly: Have Naruto successfully bring Sasuke back at the end of the Retrieval arc. Cut out all of the gratuitous Uchiha crap too.
-After that there's a timeskip. A long one, like Dragonball to Dragonball Z length. Everyone is in their late teens/early-20s and major characters are either Jounins or Chuunins.
-Optional: Jounin exam. Could be the "setting" for an arc.
-Only 2-3 post-timeskip arcs: One dealing with Itachi, One dealing with Orochimaru, and maybe one dealing with the Akatsuki Leader.
The cursemark recton I always found stupid, I really liked Sauske's demon form, so that goes.
I would probably also have Sasuke and Orochimaru being the main villains of part 2 and at the end Orochimaru is killed for good and Sasuke is brought back to the village as a prisoner. part 3 would be about the Akatsuki and their leader finally being taken down by team 7 when Sasuke sees the error of his ways.
The end stays roughly the same, Sauske aiding Naruto as hokage in the shadows and such. Boom.
Wait, they actually went back and fixed (or tried to at any rate) her tits for the volume release?
Man, the nips must have been really angry at that shit for that to happen.
Here's a question for you, /a/. Are the tailed beasts the only demons in the Naruto world? I know the movies have something like 3-4 if I recall, but most of them aren't canon. Those that are don't have them.
In the beginning it certainly seemed that there were many other demons, even the one-tailed was the vengeful spirit of a priest or something when it first showed up.
It's literally impossible for women to be strong in the Narutoverse, so yes.
I'm going to assume she'll stick to Cuckura's shitty punches and only use the Sharingan for analysis or genjutsu at most instead of the overpowered shit.
>mfw I saw those scenes when they were originally airing
This is what annoys me. Why didn't they give her more fire-style jutsu like the rest of her fucking clan? Her fighting style seems to be a rehash of her mom's MEGATON PUNCH shit.
I think every supernatural thing in the Naruto world spawned from Chakra which spawned from an alien.
We pretty much see every major chakra development chronologically so I don't think there are any other demons. Though one could easily write one in and say it was created by black zetsu or whatever.
Sasuke didn't technically kill Itachi to get his, I think the user just has to essentially suffer an emotional trauma.
Salad will probably asspull hers with love or fucking friendship.
Didn't Itachi kill his best friend to all the requirement? If so he's pretty much retarded, now that I remember the friend suggest it, didn't he, if that's the case then he's retarded.
If you wanted to farm upper tier Sharingans, and why wouldn't you, you could just put them under an illusion and force the trauma without needleesly killing people or something akin to that.
Where do these memes come from?
>You guys know she'll cap out powerwise at the second level sharingan, right?
> She literally can't get past this point unless Sauske makes another child.
>When the power creep starts to happen it happens exponential and she'll be left behind.
It seems you're retarded so let me tell you.
Sakura with the seal is equals to Naruto KM2 and Sasuke EMS.
Guess what, Sarada has a MS and she'll get Byakugo.
The fact that the GODDESS OF ALL CHAKRA was so weak because she's a woman is actually fucking hilarious.
I mean here they spend a gazillion chapters showing how utterly fucking ridiculous the Ten-Tails is and then Kaguya does nothing but hop between dimensions, get punched by another female, obliterated by Kakashi's broken-ass Kamui bullshit and sealed by Nardo and Sauce.
>seems to be a rehash of her mom's MEGATON PUNCH shit.
This triggered my autism because they made it clear at the start of part 2 that the megaton punch was a result of years in training medical ninjutsu. Salad got her period and threw one out like it could be learned on a whim, making Pink seem more incompetent than ever.
Kaguya can planet bust without even trying
Hop dimensions? Did you forget that she CREATED those worlds?
Did you forget that she fodderized both Sasuke and Naruto?
Kill yourself retard, read the manga.
Speaking of Kamui this shit is the most obnoxious plot-hole
Why the fuck does Obito get a broken-ass power that is literally more hax than the Rinnegan, for absolutely no explained reason and with practically no cost or requirements attached to it?
Fuck the Rinnegans powers, what the fuck could possibly defend against dimension warping? And all this time their power was basically split in two and severely nerfed.
>>Sakura with the seal is equals to Naruto KM2 and Sasuke EMS
It's literally in the databook, kill yourself fucktard.
How else do you think she managed to follow Naruto and Sasuke's pace in the final fight?
>inb4 I don't like her so it doesn't count xD
If I remember correctly, Madara also did not have to directly kill his bro to get Mangekyo, he just had to suffer the grief of his death.
I'm pretty sure it was Tobirama that performed the actual deed. So that supports the idea that there just needs to be a trauma.
It's just like back in dragonball when all these requisites were set for becoming a super saiyan. They were all tossed out the window when 5 year olds basically achieved it through a tantrum.
The databook is bullshit. She's way weaker than either of her teammates at that level. nardo is stronger and faster, can regenerate just the same, and Sauce has Susanoo and Amaterasu/Enton he can spam thanks to EMS.
Sakura can punch things, heal herself and summon Katsuyu and that's it.
>This triggered my autism because they made it clear at the start of part 2 that the megaton punch was a result of years in training medical ninjutsu.
You have it wrong, it needs good chakra control.
>Salad got her period and threw one out like it could be learned on a whim
She already knew how to do it.
For superstrenght what you need is chakra control, Sakura has been repeated hundreds of times through the series to be a genius in chakra control.
Sarada inherited that, but not only that she also has the Sharingan, which means that she can control her chakra even better.
>It seems you're retarded so let me tell you.
>Sakura with the seal is equals to Naruto KM2 and Sasuke EMS.
This has got to be bait. She around Tsunade, which means she's mid-kage tier. Now that's pretty great, but not demi-god level.
>This has got to be bait.
maybe, if you think Kishimoto was baiting when he said it. I guess Kishimoto is an epic troll xD.
> She around Tsunade
She was confirmed to be stronger than Tsunade. Even Hashirama said it.
she was raised by MEGATON PUNCH who only know MEGATON PUNCH. Sakura can't teach Sarada something she has no knowledge of. If Sasuke wasnt too busy fucking off in the wood for 12 years, he would probably kept the family tradition and teach her how to spit fire
Kamui drained chakra and wasn't all that great for offense against people who actually fought like shinobi instead of brawlers.
Minato put the smackdown on Obito when he relied to heavily on Kamui.
Rinnegan is definitely more powerful considering it brings people back to life and summons meteors on command.
It literally says that she was left behind but now(with Byakugo) managed to catch up and is equals to Naruto and Sasuke.
The ability to control the flames (=Enton). IIRC they stated once that he casts them with the right and controls them with the left.
Tsukuyomi was only ever used by Itachi, and Sasuke displayed multiple times that he can't use it, however the fact that there's the planet-wide version of it makes me think it's not unique.
Because they needed Obito to be really powerful but not THAT powerful.
That's why he only has one eye. If Kishimoto truly wanted to make him absolute god tier Obito would've gotten his two eyes, and we all know the bullshit those 2 eyes can do.
Itachi gave Sasuke his powers anon, that's why he has Amaterasu.
>Kamui drained chakra and wasn't all that great for offense against people who actually fought like shinobi instead of brawlers.
It didn't drain chakra at all, only kakashi had that problem
>Minato put the smackdown on Obito when he relied to heavily on Kamui.
Obito was 15
>Rinnegan is definitely more powerful considering it brings people back to life and summons meteors on command.
You can drop 200 meteors on the guy but they won't touch him, it's pointless.
You do realize that Obito only got beaten because of Kakashi right? He was fucking everyone before that.
And when he became a jinchuuriki his Kamui was sealed away, how convenient.
Hinata's three cupfuls of rice are a national treasure, but Assistant-kun wasn't informed of this.
Thanks random anon that hasn't read the manga!
Thanks random anon that hasn't read the manga!
Thanks random anon
Thanks random anon that hasn't read the manga!
I care so much about the opinion of a guy in an imageboard instead of Kishimoto!
She'd have lost to Kaguya Practically instantly if it weren't for Kakashi catching her when they were transported to lava world.
Also I don't see her doing jack shit against Sharingan hacks or a bijuu bomb. She's not on their level, its just a basic observation. I don't hate Sakura but taijutsu techniques won't touch edge and princess Naruto
They even had an actual moment in the manga where they went "no we don't mean the rinnegan silly, we mean kamui" when they talked about fearing eye powers.
Even the characters acknowledged what bullshit hax this is. Kakashi was limited as fuck with his offensive warping because he's a shitter and has no master race Uchiha blood. In Obito's hands he could have probably warped away his opponents whole.
Well then you're wrong.
Why are pinkshit fanboys always so salty? If Sakura fought nardo, she'd lose. If she fought Sasuke, she'd lose. Therefore, Sakura is not equal to nardo or Sasuke.
>Didn't sauske have the fire before he got his brother's eyes?
Itachi touched him and passed him his powers.
>What was his special power then if not the black fire?
It is Black Fire, but it's more like a coolest version of Itachi's flames. Sasuke can control it and shit.
Oh, it is fairly accurate.
However, that anon is just taking flavor text literally. The databook is referring to that bit when they all fight together with their summons instead of how it usually was where she used to get left behind while Naruto and Sasuke did the important stuff.
She's caught up to them in the sense that she didn't get left behind that time. It is not actually saying she's on par with them.
The databook is full of flowery speech like that. Taking it literally is dumb.
Both Itachi and Sasuke got theirs technically via the other parties suicide, but the important part was they considered it all their fault. Shisui literally slipped through Itachi's fingers and he jumped to his death, and Sasuke pretty much did kill Itachi, insofar as Itachi can be killed.
It has to be on that level, and the easiest way is to just murder your brother.
It was Indra, and that filler was totally shit. They even gave him the same pattern of Mangekyou than Sasuke even though Indra had a different one in the manga, while giving both brothers Chidori and Rasengan (which weren't invented yet).
>Why are pinkshit fanboys always so salty?
How am I salty for posting the databook? You're the only one getting mad here.
> If Sakura fought nardo, she'd lose.
Not against KM2
>If she fought Sasuke, she'd lose.
Not against EMS
>Therefore, Sakura is not equal to nardo or Sasuke.
Not to their final Senjutsu special reincarnation snowflake forms no.
To the previous ones, yes.
>However, that anon is just taking flavor text literally.
It says that thanks to her training she's now equals to Naruto and Sasuke
>The databook is full of flowery speech like that. Taking it literally is dumb.
Sure anon, i'm sure the databook is written in code! Back to evageeks with you and your conspiracy theories, retard.
Goddamn that's worse than I thought. That square face.
What lazy shits. The fourth invented the rasengan, and Indra having Sauske's eyes does even make sense when they're reincarnatons since Madara had his own pattren and his of of the links. If they wanted to do filler at least be somewhat original, how hard would it be to come up with an eye-design and some special moves?
>Kakashi's Kamui was way more imposing considering it could turn people inside out potentially
Kakashi's kamui was slow as shit.
>whereas Obito could only abduct.
Obito's eyes made him intangible and by touching someone he could send them to the Kamui dimension.
Kakashi had the long distance eye
Obito had the close distance one.
But when they fight Madara they use both eyes and it becomes incredibly fucking fast. Same when fighting Kaguya for Obito.
And then Kakashi and his mech that ignored durability.
>It's called hyperbole.
Except it's not an hyperbole, it literally says
>Thanks to her training, Sakura that was left behind is now equals to Naruto and Sasuke
Do I need to remind you of Sakura punching the shit out of Kaguya? Do you know how DURABLE and FAST Kaguya is? Do you know how fast Naruto and Sasuke are? they can cross 2 countries and a desert in the amount of time it takes Kakashi and Rikudo sennin to have a little chat. She still managed to catch up with their speed. Kaguya sees her with her byakugan but still can't do anything.
Or that Shin guy in the gaiden that was about to fuck Sasuke's ass? She punched the faggot so hard he literally needed a heart transplant.
>I don't like her so it's not true xDD
>after Sasuke either dies
This will never happen, Kishi doesn't have the balls to kill any of the main trio, even Sakura. Perhaps at the very last chapter if anything, but not while the story goes on.
>Kakashi had the long distance eye
>Obito had the close distance one.
He used it the same way Kakashi did on several occasions.It's the exact same ability except Kakashi couldn't use it properly
The village being resurrected. Why can't they learn that outright bringing people back to life makes death inconsequential and removes almost any tension?
Oh and the demons all being parts of the ten-tails, that I found dumb as shit.
>He's a troll
Are you 10?
>There's no way someone is that dumb and that aggressive in their writing.
How am I dumb and agressive for writing what's in the databook?
Are you just baiting now? Playing the u mad game?
>She has no counter to EMS
>she'd lose to eye hacks instantly
Byakugo changes her chakra flow constantly.
And Sasuke sucks dick at genjutsu, he was never good at it. Itachi was the genjutsu genius, and Shisui was the genjutsu god. Sasuke was never good at it and the only time it worked was against that fodder blonde guy.
Leaving that asides you do realize that she not being a good match up against sasuke doesn't mean that she's not as powerful as him right? You do realize there's compatibility things in Naruto right?
>How is she gonna stop a Bijuu bomb?
Needs time to charge up.
She can regenerate from the explosion.
So you're just baiting?
Ok good to know.
Next time make sure you have an actual argument pal! Instead of arguing with the Databook and the manga, where she has feats to show her strenght
>Sakura punching the shit out of Kaguya
Both times she blind sided them whilst they were actively distracted by N&S. Literally strikes from out of nowhere.
We have no idea how long it takes N&S to get to the waterfall. Nor do we have any reference for how much distance they cover. so that's complete speculation.
Sakura does fuck all except provide chakra and then get insta-wrekt by Genjutsu.
>Both times she blind sided them whilst they were actively distracted by N&S
1-Kaguya has Byakugan
2-She's Durable as hell
3-And she's incredibly fast.
1-Kaguya sees Sakura(the exclamation mark when Sakura appears behind her)
2-Still doesn't have time to react(speed)
3-Still gets her shit punched and is unable to tank it
>Sakura does fuck all except provide chakra and then get insta-wrekt by Genjutsu.
Except when she saved Naruto's life
Or when she healed the entire alliance.
Or when she punched Kaguya and landed her directly to Sasuke and Naruto's seal.
Nice try buddy.
>needs time to charge up
KM2 launches bombs and shuriken rasengan like they're child's play, she ain't gonna be able to deal with that destruction.
>you do realize that she not being a good match up against sasuke doesn't mean that she's not as powerful as him right?
>She doesn't have the power to beat him, but is somehow his equal in power
Then in what way is she his equal?
There's something really wrong deep down all Uchihas, best girl included.
Man, I know NaruSaku fags were cancerous. But Anti-Sakura fags are even more cancerous, it's incredible.
I seriously can't believe how /a/ hates a character so much they basically say fuck you to canon because of it. It's just stupid, then this place is supposed to be "better" than Tumblr, MAL or Reddit, but all I see here are the same retarded Narutards as ever posting their headcanon.
Honestly, it's just laughable and pathetic.
1-Kaguya sees Sakura(the exclamation mark when Sakura appears behind her)
2-Still doesn't have time to react(speed)
3-Still gets her shit punched and is unable to tank it
She doesn't see shit mate, byakugan doesn't see directly behind and the exclamation mark is clearly because N&S almost grabbed her in the previous panel. As you can see the !!? when she's punched showing surprise.
Kaguya is also not a shinobi, so despite huge chakra doesn't have battle sense at all. So getting the drop on an blind sided pensioner is hardly an incredible feat when N&S do all the fucking work to create the opening.
>healed the entire alliance
Objectively wrong and also who fucking cares when the entire army was just as useless as she is.
Nice try buddy.
>KM2 launches bombs and shuriken rasengan like they're child's play
He still needs time to charge, and does he throw bombs at his own face? Because Sakura is a melee fighter, she's always going to be right next to his face.
And she can heal with Byakugo.
>>She doesn't have the power to beat him but is somehow his equal in power
Except she has, I never said that she didn't you're just twisting my words.
I literally told you that Sasuke's genjutsu doesn't work against her using Byakugo.
I just added, that Sasuke having better compatibility against someone doesn't mean that someone is weaker. Naruto is strong as hell, he still can't beat Obito without Kakashi.
Obito couldn't even hope to dish as much damage as Konan, what happened? she got fucked in the ass
Just get over it, the Databook literally says she's equals to them.
See ya anon, go back to being stupid somewhere else, I really don't care about what some random fuck says when he clearly hasn't read the manga.
They literally have evil brain chakra that makes them go insane. Why they aren't all culled is beyond me. Sausage should have Enton'd his testicles so he could never spawn one of these foul creatures again.
What's amazing is that you still care after everyone finished arguing with you, you pathetic shitposter.
>She doesn't see shit mate, byakugan doesn't see directly behind
In a tiny spot. A literal spot
You never read Neji's fight right? You can't hide a human body from the byakugan, it's too big.
>Kaguya is also not a shinobi, so despite huge chakra doesn't have battle sense at all.
Yet she was able to react and BTFO Naruto and Sasuke every time they tried to attack her without any strategy right?
Now you're just pulling shit out your ass saying Kaguya is weak.
Well it wasn't the entire alliance considering a bunch were already dead, she did heal the thousands that were alive though.
>and also who fucking cares
You said she was useless, I just told you that she healed thousands of people.
And nice of you to ignore that she saved Naruto.
>What's amazing is that you still care after everyone finished arguing with you, you pathetic shitposter.
I literally just arrived to the thread to talk about Boruto. All I see is people posting their headcanon instead of just reading the manga. Then saying that the databook is wrong.
I'm telling you to fuck off, you're cancer man. Literally worse than tumblrtards
>y-you haven't read the manga so I'm right!
I have read the manga, every instance of Sakura's uselessness in engraved in my mind.
She is not as fast as Naruto so she would not "be right next to his face" so there's that, she can't heal complete obliteration no matter your denial.
>Doesn't work against her using Byakugo
I don't recall this ever being alluded to, so show citation or this is straight up headcanon.
Nevermind she can't withstand black flames, I know this because acid wrecks her shit even with the Byakugo.
What else you got??
nice of you to ignore that Kaguya is surprised by Sakuras punch, you can't deny that, I literally posted fucking evidence.
>BTFO Naruto and Sasuke
Wow you're right she absolutely managed to BTFO them by fucking teleporting using absolutely zero strategy. The minute she couldn't just use her portal she got punched from behind. Truly the skill of a honed opponent.
>Now you're just pulling shit out your ass saying Kaguya is weak.
No, you're putting words in my mouth, I said she had no battle sense, which she demonstrably does not. She falls for tricks throughout and without her portals would have lost the fight from the get go.
Go ahead and provide everyone even more evidence of your denial.
I like Sakura. It's a shame Kishimoto is such a godawful writer to have wasted one of his main characters so unbelievably badly. He truly cannot write female characters.
Why does /a/ care so much about how Hinata looks? I mean she appeared like 10 times in the original manga, she's not even a ninja anymore in this one. It doesn't matter how she looks man, let go already of this annoying waifu culture.
And you're posting the movie instead of Kishimoto's art, Kishimoto draws her ugly as sin recently just like every other female. They have manfaces and they look tired.
The only time she looks good is in side materials since he apparently takes some time to make characters better looking. Compare Part 1 Tsunade to the war, compare part 1 Sakura or right after TS Sakura to the war, manfaces. Hell compare Part 1 Hinata and right after TS Hinata to the war, again, manface.
The reception has been good, only filthy gaijin care. The only "con" that people mentioned is that they're doing the movie again, but it won't take more than 8 chapters or so.
>starting to believe naruto fans have never read anything else than naruto, no one can be this retarded otherwise
>kishimoto can't shade, can't color, barely knows what perspective and anatomy are, draws terrible borderline unreadable fight scenes and his women look like trannies
Holy shit. Can you just fuck off?
You do realize all the top 3 weekly shonen (OP, Bleach Naruto) rarely use any tones, right? Since it takes a lot of time to use that.
Also, Even I don't like Naruto's story that much but at least Kishi put the biggest effort into his works compared to Oda and Kubo. He literally way better than lazy ass Togashi.
Fuck you retard, if you don't care about Boruto then why come to threads? Nobody wants you faggots here, in fact you killed discussion with you cancerous argument.
Leave, fuck off.
>Thread is fine, people talking about Boruto, Sarada and Mizuki
>Saying the manga is not canon
Fuck off shitposter.
>The databook is full of flowery speech like that
>She's caught up to them in the sense that she didn't get left behind that time. It is not actually saying she's on par with them.
Basically this. Point is that in the past she was completely fucking useless like she was in the past.
At least this time around she fought, summoned slug, saved naruto, and punched kagura.
No more than the guys complaining about a side character having less tits.
Can't you leave already? We get it, you don't like Sakura and you say that the Databook is not canon.
It's fine, just post it in Gaia or whatever the hell you guys post your fanfics. Maybe the OBD since you want to talk about powerlevels instead of believing word of god?
Wow Shonen Jump went to shit.
>Milks their only decent Shonen left to death
>Lets Bleach and Nisekoi go to shit for several years
>Let's Togashi get away with his hiatus
>Continues Toriko, because the mangaka sucks up to Oda and Toriyama
>believing word of god
>He thinks Kishi creates the databooks.
Discussing powerlevels is a generous way to describe a one sided demonstration of why Sakura has never been near Sasuke and Naruto.
Gintama and Toriko are clearly both ending very soon.
Dunno what Jump is gonna do without those two. At least Hero Academia and Haikyuu are good tentpoles.
>Togashi would end HxH in 1 chapter if they pissed him off.
And? not a loss mate, HxH was never even a fraction of Naruto and it will never be.
It will never be a fraction of One Piece either.
They can just make a new series that sells more than it, in fact considering HxH never releases a volume every single series makes more money than it.
Will they fix Ino's flatness also?
There's no discussion here, one anon posts manga scans and databooks. Some other anon says he's wrong because his ass says so.
It's pretty simple to tell at first glance that second anon should kill himself for being a fanfic writer.
>and what is this meme about Databooks not being canon?
Are you mentally challenged? it's a basic concept to wrap your head around, Kishi didn't write them. They are just as canon as your SakuraxNaruto fanfic.
>>punching Kaguya from behind whilst she's fighting N&S is proof she's on par
No, it proves that she can fuck Kaguya who has a Byakugan and super durability.
You do realize Kaguya can tank bijuudamas right? Yet Sakura injured her and pushed her back
You do realize Kaguya can fight with Naruto and Sasuke right? Yet Sakura can manage to tag her.
You do realize that Hashirama says she's stronger than Tsunade, the databook says she's equals to Naruto and Sasuke AND she has feats to prove it right?
Get fucked hater.
>I've already embarrassed
>Posting his headcanon
So how many years ahead is this manga? Borutu looks like he's 10 years old. Akamaru's got to be like 15 years old by now, which is almost a century old in dog years. Are we going to see Kiba bring him to the vet to have him put down in any future chapters?
>Are you mentally challenged? it's a basic concept to wrap your head around, Kishi didn't write them.
Except he did, take your headcanon somewhere else shithead. They're called OFFICIAL NARUTO DATABOOKS and they're written or supervised by Kishimoto. Fuck off.
>They are just as canon as your SakuraxNaruto fanfic.
Except you're the one wirting fanfics pal.
And like I told you, the databook only agrees with the feats she has in the manga.
1-Can injure Kaguya, the strongest character in the series
2-Can tag Kaguya, the strongest character in the series
See? These are FEATS, do you know what feats are?
Sorry buddy to burst your bubble
Kaguya doesn't know she's there, stop embarrassing yourself.
>still going on about the databook
If I write a databook of my own that says the ramen shop owner is the strongest, does that become canon too?
>Posting his headcanon
Wtf are you talking about? everything I've posted has been backed up by evidence, you're the one 'posting headcanon, saying shit like Sasuke can't put Sakura into Genjutsu, that alone reveals your denial.
>feats to prove it
Such as? punching a Blind sided Kaguya who doesn't know she's there is not a feat lol
>Kaguya doesn't know she's there, stop embarrassing yourself.
Kaguya has Byakugan, stop embarrassing yourself. The Byakugan only has a stop where it's vulnerable, a small spot.
>If I write a databook of my own that says the ramen shop owner is the strongest, does that become canon too?
Yeah, if you're Kishimoto it does. Thing is, you're not Kishimoto and you don't get to write the Official Databooks.
Sorry, I know you want to be Kishi, maybe be someone in your life. Must be sad.
>Wtf are you talking about?
You don't belong here.
>everything I've posted has been backed up by evidence
You have no evidences, I posted feats that show Sakura injuring and tagging the strongest character in the series. Injuring Kaguya just puts her above than most characters, which again the Databook confirms by saying the's equals to KM2 and EMS Sasuke, high tiers.
>you're the one 'posting headcanon, saying shit like Sasuke can't put Sakura into Genjutsu
Genjutsu can be dispelled by infusing Chakra into the person, the Byakugo seal is is autonomous and what it does is release chakra into the body.
>Such as? punching a Blind sided Kaguya who doesn't know she's there is not a feat lol
Kaguya has Byakugan, she can't be blindsided like that. And Even if she is Blindsided, Sakura still has to keep up with Naruto and Sasuke's speed in order to follow the combo they were doing, she did. And even if she was blindsided, Sakura still needs to be strong enough to damage Kaguya, she did that too.
I already told you that you don't belong here.
>He's shutting my ass so it's bait
Kill yourself retard.
If you haven't read, don't like or don't care about Naruto then don't come to bother people that do like Naruto.
You clearly don't know anything about the series and you're just posting things because you dislike a character. You're going againt Kishimoto's story, a story that took him 15 years to write and that's just annoying.
All the woman look awful in this. And it's not even because they have no tits, that's a deeper issue, but because they just look weird. I think it's the jawline and the eyes. The jaws are curved and the eyes are oddly circular.
Kamui is fucking god tier until you learn he needs to materialize to absorb people which then he becomes nothing more than a nuisance, once people learned that, Obito got owned thoroughly.
I don't think he forgot so much as it fell to wayside to make way for pumping out chapters. Considering the pace of weekly manga this isn't surprising. The longer a manga runs the less ideas you have and the more time you need to spend thinking.
The ideas he got weren't very good, granted, but it was still time he'd have to spend.
It's really not. Araki changes and evolves his art style immense from Part to Part but I would never consider any of his styles a downgrade from the next. They're just new and different.
His art in Part 7 is my favorite style and there are pages there that I would actually call quite beautiful.
but they are in no way supervised by kishimoto, they are called like that beacuse the editorial want it to be called like that, but fuck off they are in no way a definitive canon or source of new information since kishimoto has never supervised a databook since the first one, and if you wanna argue that then find me a source where its said that kishimoto supervised the last one because he didnt
>Using inconsistent feats and outliers to defend a character that is consistently fodderized
>Sakufags this delusional
As long as they have One Piece they won't be afraid. Any new series gets automatic added exposure thanks to being in the same magazine as OP, so it's easier for them to make a series stick, if it's at least somewhat decent.
Danzo scheming so the conflict between the uchiha and the village become unavoidable, also he lust after Itachi's friend MS ability. The latter realize that Danzo is the only real opposition to a peacefully and secret agreement and want/threaten to use his MS unique ability to "rewrite" danzo's mind. It ends badly and danzo got half what he wants but got blackmailed so hard by Itachi for it that he doesn't appear before the late middle part of shippuden.
I really miss Naruto's old hair.
Make sense in a weird way. She is a "goddess" thanks to sheer power gap. She didn't have to work hard for it either since she obtained it from eating whatever she eat that day. She was never challenged and probably never has anything to do but say "dies" to kill people. Too bad kishi's couldn't articulate that, would have been a good concept, even if it's not something you'd expect for a end game villain.
you may have been on /a/ for too long then...
>Databooks aren't even authored by Kishimoto.
Not that it matter. There plenty things that are canon without author being truly involved with them. Databooks are a basic reference for shonen, regardless of who write them, however.
>evil brain chakra
Aaah the bitter sound of speed readers and antis. How cancerous.
It's not just female character. More people shit on Sakura because it's easy and almost a meme at this point. But ninja jesus and his homolust who pull 180° at plot conveniences are not better. Kishi is a good mangaka when it come to drawing but he clearly needs a writer who know the basic of story telling to make something at least consistent.
> Thinking Naruto wasn't already shit to begin with
I remember having to suffer through lunchtime at the community college every day for two years before I transferred. I say "suffered" because as soon as we all sat down to eat, you autistic fucks with your cringe inducing headbands would come in and start shouting about just this or shipping that. It got so bad the Anime club on campus even kicked you Narutards out.
Let me guess, all of the following are true:
1. You wear goth/emo clothing aside from Naruto paraphernalia
2. You are pursuing and art degree
3. You have a deviantart account, and think someone will "find" you because of your shit-tier anime fan art.
Source: my cousin was also a member of the Narutards ranks, and at age 28 has yet to hold a job. So much for that art degree. He doesn't even talk normally anymore, he just grunts at most people, due to his goth depression.
Sakura is obviously a reflection of some girl Kishimoto lusted after but ended up ignoring him and going for the bad boy.
That scene where she fake-confesses to Naruto and he calls her out on it felt like it was pretty personal for Kishi.
I actually like that in the end Sakura forgives Sasuke for all of his bullshit, Naruto gets his own girl and they all grow up and get over it. It feels realistic. Sakura may not have a "great" personality, but she has a realistic one.
Kishi is also very obviously a confused bisexual, and has brother issues too. I think he's guilty about always being more in the spotlight than his younger brother (who is also a manga artist and I liked Blazer Drive, he's not bad) but he'll always be "the little brother of the guy who made Naruto"
Itachi and Sasuke's relationship feels like him apologizing to his brother
There's so many storylines that involve brothers or brother-like figures and men who are a little too close to each other
>Itachi and Sasuke
>sai and his brother
>Juugo and Kimimaro
>Nagato and Yahiko
>Obito and Kakashi
>Zabuza and Haku
>Shisui and Itachi
off the top of my head
Not to mention the war to end all wars was started by a guy going insane because the girl he liked thought Kakashi was cooler
Kishi clearly has some issues with these things or I don't think they'd show up in literally every story arc.
Never got around to finishing Blazer Drive but I remember not likeing as much as his previous work 666 Satan/O-part Hunter.
I think the only time araki's new style bites him is when he goes back and draws Part 1-3 characters with it. It wouldn't be so bad if we didn't remember that those characters were supposed to be extremely buff and now they aren't.
Can also see where kishi got his monster designs from.
I like his art more than Masashi's.
I mean you can see that they started from the same place, and Kishi's middle art is a lot like his brother's but then they kinda went different ways.
>you're not salty about it so you must be an apologist
First, special abilities come from the blood not the brain. That's why it's called a bloodline. I know the manga show you a picture of a brain but it's because the optical nerves are attached to it. In answer to a trauma (alike to a defence mechanism) a chemical reaction is released, not to affect the brain, but the eyes.
Second, it basically turn a trauma into more eyes power. Not exactly what I would call a disavantage in a world waging war, if you exclude the loss in eyesight (which can be cured if you're a dick enough to take your relative's eyeballs). The Uchihas (aka: madara and sasuke) are unstable because era and/or ptsd not because "muh evil brain chakra". And only a retard would think it excuse them in the slightest.
If they were all evil retards, the uchiha would have likely killed each other long before becoming a problem. And there not even such a thing as brain chakra.
>Sasuke got EMS after getting Itachi's eyes
>Orochimaru somehow managed to get Sasuke's original pair of eyes
>Sarada gets MS, her vision starts deteriorating after too much use
>Orochimaru gives her her dad's eyes
There, problem solved.
She appeared a lot in off panels in the original manga, more than a few times in the plot. Among side-characters she was definitely one that showed up occasionally compared to most of them.
People care how she looks since they like Hinata. If she's drawn shittily, of course people will say its shitty. If nothing else her design always was pretty high tier throughout the manga. Character arc was also fun, but design was charming since the start even as a kid. Which is fitting since she's one of the two characters Kishi had planned before the manga started apparently, going by one or two illustrations he drew around that time.
Seems he likes her design enough to rehash it in his recent one-shot.
>don't read/research anything about Boruto, before a decent copy of the movie comes out
>couple of days ago BD comes out I watch it
>decide to check out the manga, hearing it's the official continuation of the original manga
>it's just a manga verson of the movie
Why is this shit allowed, I thought the manga continues where the movie left
Sharingan is literally asspull kekkei genkai, in the end it was literally stronger than rinnegan, whenever Kishimoto was in a bind with some fight, he would make a new sharingan power, that's most obvious with Itachi
>fat nigga's daughter is drawn nibbling on food
get it? you get it? get it? hey! hey! you get it? do you get it? you get it? get it? hey everyone! do you get it?
people still reading this? I quit when Hinata was ruined...
I'm almost tempted to pick it back up for Sakura. I know she ain't going to get any more screentime so fuck it.
>If could make rough major changes to Naruto as to make it not suck what would they be?
-Rinningan is not an uchiha power
-less Uchiha wank
-Rock Lee and Shino became jonin after timeskip along with Neji
-zombies in the war were used to give all the characters more time to shine
-samurai were better
and of course no chosen one bullshit
good romances need screen time, relationships of any kind in general NEED screen time. hinata's screen time was thrown in the garbage in shitpuden and she'd only get rolled out so she could fangirl all over naruto's cock. looking back, it makes me sick to my stomach
granted, this series was never about romance but then we have
muh scarf, the movie
The Last would be okay if it didn't attempt to invalidate every bond Naruto ever formed in his life, including the one he had with his own mother (He discarded the scarf his mom made for him because it made Hinata jealous. How anyone thought an orphan doing this was appropriate is beyond me) just so that Hinata could be Nauru's first, biggest, and only love instantly. As a person who likes NaruHina, it's painful the way they did it. Kishimoto's development for them was fine, but then the horny assholes at SP decided to rush things unnaturally.
im actually glad i didnt watch that now
Lol that jutsu does not boost your physical speed at all. The only way it would do it is by allowing you to push off the ground much harder to allow you to move in quick bursts. Its main purpose is to heal the shit out of you and let you hit harder. Her capabilities are objectively far below that of Naruto and Sasuke's given that both of them have capabilities at the moon level. All it would take to kill Sakura is to slice her head off. She would be dead instantly and her technique would not save her in that instance. She isn't fast enough to dodge most shit so she could be killed pretty easily if any of the characters in this series actually used their abilities competently. But that wouldn't make for a 'good' story.
I await the day Kishimoto apologizes for betraying his fans/himself and admits he isn't happy with how the story happened, because his editors forced his hands, when his contact with SJ/SP are expired. You can scoff at me now, but I assure you, that day is coming.
Great Snake Escape would have been fine if Kishi didn't show Sasuke at all during Deidara's monologue before the explosion and gave Sasuke some internal monologue about how he's not out of chakra he's just fucked up from Chidoriing himself. He'd already repeatedly shown that Sasuke can summon snakes near-instantly.
New databook stats for the kiddies. Bort is such a pleb.
Salad is probably the most powerful of the bunch at the moment. But considering this is leaving out things like the Rasengan, it probably represents a pre-movie ending time period.
Mitsuki is the smartest. No surprise there.
Jujutsu/ Curse Jutsu → http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Jujutsu
The perpetual asshurt of NaruSakufags sustain me
>Sakurastans still using this excuse to validate how shitty of a character she is
It's also worth mentioning that on this scale a 90 represents what's average for a genin, while a 60 is the benchmark for non-ninja normies. Meaning Bort's not stupid like his father, just average for a genin his age.
>The attribute score of an ordinary person has an average of 60; the genin average is 90.

You're retarded and completely wrong. Seeing as your a complete narutard, no surprise there.
They're also still pretty damn high for someone who doesn't train shit. Also, I think it's worth mentioning that Salad having 10 higher in Chakra likely means she has better control, not larger reserves.
Not like it matters much since Mitsuki has by far the largest reserves at the moment because fucking Sage Mode.
But yeah, after he starts training with Sausage expect these stats to increase fast.
>Because being one of the most badly written characters in Shonen Jump is something to be proud of
>Need to bring up other characters to shit on because they know they can't actually defend their pet fave

Then make 2 more clones to DP hiwamari and do bolt on your real body.
But the kids need attention so they don't become edgelords.
Like salad instantly become happy and started wearing high heels when she got attention from an older guy.
At least it isn't the bootleg version.
Doesn't look like it. Congrats, Sauce. You successfully made an Uchiha without fire with your neglect.
Also, how the fuck did Bort learn Purple fucking Lightning? Kakashi made that technique as a replacement for his Raikiri once he lost his Sharingan, and this little fucker has it.
I just realized his women look like children. I mean real children. They have really round jaws which suggests underdevelopment and a good amount of baby fat on the lower face. Proportionally the face looks vertically scrunched - especially the spacing between the bottom of the nose and the eyes - which is another child-like attribute. And of course, he reduced everyone's breast sizes.
Compared to that Kishi's women have narrow chins that have a steeper angle and they have more space vertically. And of course, Hinata has nice tits from the right angle at least.
Is Kishi's assistant an actual pedo?
Hinata was jealous and pouting that Naruto was wearing his dead mother's scarf instead of hers. She is literally autism: the character. She is just as much of a spoiled, whiney, self-absorbed brat as Sakura. She only gets away with it because of her bust size and quiet voice.
A bootleg version of Naruto. I'm hoping that Boruto, despite the shit art, won't be anywhere near as bad.
>I love misrepresenting characters and motives to suit my narrative of how they're awful
I know you do
She was only jealous when she didn't know it was his mother's scarf, he only told her at the end. Her being confused by him wearing another scarf and being misleading wasn't even a big point in the movie. She was still going to give him her own scarf regardless to wrap up that character arc they've had going since they were kids.
Scarf thing was based on a real story with a few embellishments.
No she wasn't super jealous and resentful of his mother. Seeing him wearing someone else's scarf didn't even change her path at all.
Read & weep. Either out of sadness that this exists or happiness that at least Boruto isn't this bad, admittedly that is not saying much.
>Salad is the tank
>Mitsuki is support/healer
>Bort is DPS
>forgetting Indra and Ashura and Hashirama and Madara
>Shadow clones split your chakra in half per clone
>Bort can make up to 4
>Salad can make zero
>still scored 10 points higher in chakra
They must mean control. CES requires near-perfect chakra control and she can do it.
And Sakura's not on this list. It's impossible that she has larger chakra reserves than him when he can use a move that splits your chakra in half, and then do it 3 more times and still have enough to fight.
>She was only jealous when she didn't know it was his mother's scarf
Which is still fucking stupid. Hinata was never the jealous type before this movie happens. It was a regression in her character.
>Character arc they has going since they were kids
You mean the one SP pulled out of their ass? There was plenty of decent material from the manga to work from, but instead they retcon a new shitty subplot stolen from SakuIno's childhoods and copy pasted it onto NaruHina. It was pathetic.
I know scarf thing was based on a real story. Everyone knows that. It just means nothing to me, and it was incorporated badly and was a poor replacement for actual character development for both of them.
The movie is bad. Everyone knows it's bad. It's ok to admit it. That doesn't mean NaruHina is bad, but The Last is very, very bad.
Right. And that was only because he was half-Uzumaki and had Kurama's chakra mixing with his own. His son doesn't have anywhere near the reserves but relative to his peers it's still insane.
