HOW TO UNIRONICALLY FIX NARUTO
>embrace bullshit ayylmaos fully
>pretty much attempt to drop standard ninja shit, because that ship sailed ages ago
>embrace outrageous power levels ala hunter
>focus more on having an actual story
>bloodborne-esque dimension hopping, end of the world synthesis, and play heavily with the idea of time
Seriously could kishi fix it? Does he even care anymore? Regardless of the shit that nardo came towards the end, the world still shows some promise.
Unfortunately, for this to actually work they'd have to spend time building the world and churning out lore and established power structures and levels
>boroto becomes dark lord, dark souls tier
>often communicate and deal with godlike beings, not ninja gods, but actual ones
How would you fix Naruto?
>Man that killed your grandfather and was in the same terrorist organization responsible for the death of your uncle is back in the village
>Do nothing about it
This shouldn't be allowed. Maybe if they stopped letting villains get away with everything, Naruto would be good
what the fuck happened after naruto ended? why is his son some one eyed NOTHINGPERSONNELKID looking mofo?
I'm looking shit up on google and apparently konoha got destroyed? naruto is dead? how does one even get stronger than him after all that shit he went through and was basically ninja god reincarnate?
>Does he even care anymore?
Why would he even consider it in need of fixing? It's super popular and made/is continuing to make him filthy rich.
Sounds like mission accomplished.
I agree with embracing aliens, outrageous power levels, but Naruto has to do a lot more than that to redeem it in my eyes.
>incorporate themes and characters from other mythologies, both modern and PIE, as part of world building
>give more focus to Salad's story and have her be at least on par with Bort throughout the story (unlikely, I know)
>have Bort be a failure hero
>expand and nuance on the Indra/Asura reincarnation aspect
>expand on the Ootsukis' backstory, such as making them a slave race
>have an actual, experienced writer write the story, not some spineless noob
>have Sasuke get called out on his bull
>Seriously could kishi fix it?
All he has to say is "this shit isn't canon bro, my assistant wrote it"
He better be prepared to die though since his assistant will probably kill him.
Haven't kept up with Naruto in years outside of checking in here and there, just want to know whether Burrito actually has the Byakugan or not, since that was like half of the point of marrying Hinata.
>Thinks he's the next Naruto
>He's actually just another sacrificial piece in a long line of jobbers
What a pathetic piece of shit, he will be surpassed by Orochi-chans adorable offspring any day now.
He should be grateful, maybe some greatness will rub off on his mediocre existence.
Also the snotnosed brat is going to fuck Moegi. And Hanabi will never even look at him, just soduko already.
>>Man that killed your grandfather and was in the same terrorist organization responsible for the death of your uncle is back in the village
>>Do nothing about it
>>He's actually just another sacrificial piece in a long line of jobbers
Don't forget he's (unknowingly) PERSONALLY training the son/clone of the man who killed his grand father, partially responsible for the death of his uncle, and destruction of his village.
LITERALLY THE KEKEST OF KEKS
That must be the most shitty unoriginal design of any Naruto villain.
It pains me that the artist decided to introduce that nigger in chapter 1 while he's still drawing and designing like an amateur.
>"Hey sensei sorry for killing you and trying to destroy the leaf"
He doesn't get it from strangers, his grandfather was a cuck too. Danzo was probably the only reason the leaf was still standing.
Orochimaru should have been the 4th, they could have saved themselves a lot of trouble back then.
>Naruto wasn't about team 7 traveling the lands, funding and securing ever more powerful jutsus
>Danzo was probably the only reason the leaf was still standing.
>But he made Pein!
He was making a deal with Hanzo to secure Ame as Konoha's ally. Considering how powerful Hanzo was, and how many times Ame seemingly became the main battleground of the Great Villages, getting him on Konoha's side at the cost of some punks trying to bring peace with no real plan seemed like a great deal.
Besides, BZ and Obito were already interested in the Ame orphans by that point. One way or another, Pein would've come into creation.
I'm genuinely surprised that Danzo still gets the blame for this considering Orochimaru's entire MO is convincing distressed kids to his side.
Wiki says it was made by Hashirama, contains Eight Trigrams Sealing Technique and Shadow Clones.
It was probably a long list of strong Senju and Uzumaki type jutsu, most of which would be sealing techniques.
Back in the day I saw maybe the first two episodes of Naruto at a friends place. A few days later when I was there again and the first thing I saw was team 7 on a boat I assumed they had set out on a Pokémon-esque adventure and that Kakashi was their Brock.
Kind of older looking guy they picked up somewhere along the road who seemed generally more informed about the world than the other characters. It was just the first impression my 13 year old self had.
Why doesn't anyone want to kill the Uchiha before she becomes a threat? Does literally all of Konoha completely lack pattern recognition?
His sister has it, but she has normal blue eyes instead of white eyes when she is not using it.
There is this flasforward where he has it in one eye with a scar over it kakashi style.
Why would any of those be forbidden?
Fucking hell, half the cast of Naruto knows how to make shadow clones, or other better shadow clones, why the hell is such a ubiquitous technique "forbidden"? What does "forbidden" even mean in this context?
>long hair grown up salad
>mitsuki has bullshit 2nd level snek sage mode
>boruto went full edge while giving no fucks about hokagay
>orochibro is the leader of anti ayylmao resistance
>theres a hot moonpeople chick that likes bort
Wow what went right
This would've been good, because she could've been maximum edgelord, extremely bitter that her dad wants to stand in the way of her potential until she forcibly unlocks her eyes somehow. She could've been Itachi, except not secretly a good guy.
Not even patern recognition it is a in universe scientifically proven fact that are a bunch warmongering retards.
The sharingan literally gets it's strength from them becoming batshit insane edgelords and the sharingan makes them go batshit insane.
Uchiha's are scum the best you can hope for if it works like the simpsons gene that only men get heavily affected by the DARKNESS.
But even then Salad has shown off her true Uchiha fucking shit colors.
Luckily enough Naruto was there to deal with it before it became too big of a problem, but he just nipped it at best at her core she still is like the rest of those inbred red-eyed rednecks.
I guess it's a question of which Rule of Naruto takes priority here, the one that states that all Uchihas are Full Edgelord serial killers, or the one that states that all women are pointless jobbers who need to stay in the kitchen.
I'm in for the prospect of porn and waifus
Neither is that annoying to me, so I'm fine with Sarada being Sasuke wannabe but since she's shit at anything ninja related she's just a minor threat not taken seriously by anyone
>implying bringing back the Five Hokage which also lead to Sauce fighting to help save the world too doesn't make up for it all
And besides that, the nigga has contingencies in contingencies, the world will sooner end before he ever dies for real, and might as well not antagonize him when he's now just chilling in the village serving drinks and dessert
You know which one it is going to be.
She was doomed the moment she got an x chromosome instead of an Y chromosome.
Her sharingan hax already caps out at mangekyou since she doesn't have a sibling to plug and play with.
Don't get me wrong mangekyou is great and all, but EMS is just straight up better than it and it certainly is no rinnegan.
The fact that it seems like they are going to focus on hyuga wank in boruto doesn't bode well for her.
The fact that she has Sakura's moveset and Sauce is probably going to teach Bort all his cool shit just seals the deal.
Tobirama created the Shadow Clones and Edo Tensei and then forbid their use (Edo Tensei for obvious reasons, Shadow Clones, I dunno why he forbid such a harmless technique).
Hashirama forbid the techniques on the scroll you mentioned, we don't know what kind of techniques it was.
They only appear in a non-canon filler episode and movie.
>pretty much attempt to drop standard ninja shit, because that ship sailed ages ago
They were always wizards who sometimes threw knives at each other.
Anyway, there's an even shorter way to fix nurudu with its sequel burudu
>have a fucking coherent and carefully planned plot
That's really all you need. And the artist could learn how to draw tits, too. That'd be nice.
>combining chakra mecha
Kishi probably got tired of having to constantly remember the scale difference when a character destroyed a moutain so he just made mountain sized chakra mechs to make it easier.
>Her sharingan hax already caps out at mangekyou since she doesn't have a sibling to plug and play with.
She can take her dad's eyes.
Or maybe Karin secretly isn't a cuck and she has a half sibling.
But yeah you're probably right because lol relevant women in naruto or really any shonenshit.
>let danzo brainwash children and make them kill each other
>worst ninja war where children were sent to the battlefield happened on his watch
>condoned genocide against his own citizens
>accepted the fourth's dying wish to raise his son but stuck him in a shitty apartment with barely enough money to buy ramen and spoiled milk and let the entire village shit on him for over a decade
It's not that hard to make a good plot. I know the mangaka regiment is hellish and harsh but I still don't know how that level of character degradation could be produced weekly.
Both Shadow Clones and Edo Tensei were created by Tobirama. He might have written both on the same scroll. Which lead to it being forbidden by Hashirama as it was Edo Tensei (and all the techniques that Tobirama created around the use of Edo Tensei) thus forbidding both techniques at the same time when one wasn't actually harmful.
Am I the only one going to watch Boruto just to see how absolutely shitty and retarded the power levels are going to get?
Also is it going to air alongside Naruto or did they finally stop random filler arcs every year?
I can literally see this fuckhead broadcasting to the whole village that Naruto was a jinchuruki just so he can have that forced lonely life we all crave for. I mean Naruto couldn't link up with anybody in the whole village?
Pretty fucked up that shadow clones isn't taught in konoha elementary school desu, since it's literally one of the most useful and versatile techniques. For the training montage applications if nothing else.
The show's animation quality has been pretty stable even on the outsourced episodes since the anime started adapting the post-manga novel stories. The Boruto main directors are promising, hopefully they can oversee the production well and if they can manage then the show can turn out to be like the current Pokemon season with pretty consistent production values.
I'm a sucker for mindless shonen shows, even if I drop most of them because they're shit. It'd be a pleasant surprise if this ended up being decent. I still maintain that the original Naruto was actually a lot of fun save for the filler. Never bothered with Shippuden since I just read the manga. I'm half tempted to watch Shippuden though for lack of anything else to do lately. It cant be that bad right
I enjoyed Shippuden much more.
Partially because the plot with the Akatsuki was much more interesting and the characters were slightly more mature.
There's some bad filler arcs here and there, but the main story was a lot of fun.
I feel like all of Naruto was great until the pain arc ended. The 4th ninja war was the gayest thing ever, I think it just should have been a Madara rez arc and then Madara god tier fight without power level bullshit.
I agree with the op now that we're this far down the rabbit hole. Just fuck it up and make it another DBZ.
S M O O T H
reviving the characters soooo last generation
seeing dead people is the new trend now senpai
>Why was shadow clones forbidden?
When you do a shadow clone, you're splitting your chakra with those shadow clones. If you do an assload of and don't have the natural high level of chakra the Senjus have, you'll die.
When Boruto killed one of the alien gods, he was given a mark on his hand.
Apparantly, the mark can expand into some tattoo.
This was a flashforward in the first boruto issue when he had an eye scar and was fighting another guy with a god killer tattoo.
Why do rich mangakas have to milk their shit dry?
Watch these last recent episodes and you can see good ol' Orochimaro casually strolling through Konoha, getting drunk at a bar alongside the future kages, getting annoyed because of Shino's bugs, and appearing in a video congratulating Naruto and Hinata on their wedding, filmed by Konohamaru. You know, the grandson of his late sensei whom he himself killed by impaling him with a sword during his invasion that aimed to destroy Konoha.
He got away with fucking everything and he knows it.
>stole shisui's fucking eye even though he could've ended the uprising with no cost
>hides when Pain attacks the village, the village he is trying to protect.
>cut deals with orochimaru despite him being public enemy no.1
>The best idea for pushing Boruto is to potentially kill off Naruto
>Not just let him leave the village to go off adventuring like he wants to anyways
>Wouldn't even need to be a Missing Nin
>Just have Naruto grant him permission to wander like Jiraiya with the occasional mission.
>kill off Naruto
>Boruto goes berserk and evil
>make Robo-Naruto the hero of the story
>the rest is basically G Gundam but with magic jutsus mixed in
>but I still don't know how that level of character degradation could be produced weekly
>plan story for 5 years
>bosses tell you to stretch it to 15 and still maintain weekly deadlines
That's how. Then add hundreds of filler episodes.
I'm not sure if the powerlevels will get much more retarded. There's not much more they can do without it literally becoming DBZ. Hopefully they'll add more hax techniques since those are more fun to see fights involving
>Boruto said he already know 3 different nature chakra
>can already do rasengan without effort
>trained by sauce
>byakugan potential bs
>Son of the greatest ninja ever born
>Senju, Hyuga, Uzumaki bloodline
He is already OP before hte manga even start I don't know how they can build a story about young ninjas from there. It's like having Goku ssj during Dragon Ball
It's literally GT all over again.
>try and recapture the feeling of pre-timeskip
>but keep all the crazy powerlevel bloat
>give up halfway and just have the cast fighting increasingly ridiculous and nonsensically powerful threats
Why exactly is this shit still around?
When naruto came to an end a friend of mine told me I should read it, so I read the whole thing within a month and I thought it was an okay time waster but nothing exceptional.
But how in the fuck is this still a thing?
Like, doesen't kishimoto have any respect for his work?
Maybe they can try things differently and separate the 3 op children (Sarada, Boruto, Orochimaru 2.0) from the rest and make them go on an adventure where their OPness won't be a problem.
It doesn't have to be Naruto 2.0
After all this time... I'm still so happy she won. She deserved it like nobody else.
Be honest, /a/ - did you think/hoped she would win in the end? I admit it was very unlikely near the end, when Naruto's dad showed up and made all those comparisions of Sakura to Naruto's mom
At least he explains he got off scott free
CC2 delivered the justice though
>Still can't believe they let Kabuto work with children. It's like they want him to have a private army.
That's how janissaries were formed anon
>Enslave the POWs
>Gets trained by Religious sect known as Bektashi order
>Acquire Killing Machines that only loyal to you
>Conquer whole Balkans
It was ultimately pointless because it was poorly developed.
If they're going to shove in some romance sub plot I wish they'd invest on it a bit harder or leave it out completely.
Kishi is no longer in charge you fool.
Shadow Clones aret forbidden, its MULTIPLE Shadow Clones that is forbidden. Simply because it cant kill you if you arent careful, Naruto is one of the few characters that split his chakra in half multiple times. And hes the only human that do that to over 1000.
You die when you run out of chakra, shadow clone is tech that splits your chakra in half with each clone. Kakashi, and elite, said he is only able to make about 5 clones max. Only chakra monsters like Naruto and other Jins can actually use the technique properly.
>Orochimaru should have been the 4th
You mispelled Jiraiya.
Orochimaru recognizes talent and bloodlines, but we would have no hard working ninja jesuses under his rule.
Oh. Yeah, that's right: Dumbass had broken genetics himself on top of busting his ass.
Ok then consider this: Orochimaru as Hokage, then no Might Guy beating the piss out of Madara.
>since it's literally one of the most useful and versatile techniques
One of the reasons it's something you definitely don't want to teach school kids, it's also really dangerous.
>Kakashi, and elite, said he is only able to make about 5 clones max
>Bort can already make 4
I mean, it's nothing compared to what Naruto "The Chakra Energizer Bunny" Uzumaki could do, but it's still something.
>Teach her ransengan and sage mode
Can't have two Rasengan users on the same team. As for Sage Mode, I don't think frog eyes + Sharingan would work.
At least Sakura will teach her Byakugou so she won't go blind from MS overuse
That's Bort though. I'm not saying Salad won't become a prodigy or isn't already, i'm just saying that copy sharingan doesn't mean you don't need a teacher.
She could copy Nardo, Kakashi or Sauces moves all day and she'd never hit hm because of how skilled and experienced they are.
>She could copy Nardo
She doesn't have the chakra reserves to do half the shit he does. The others are fine, she can even copy Bort if she wants.
Anyway, with 1-2 unknown Mangekyou abilities and her own personal Susano'o chakra mech waiting in the wings, she'll be fine.
no one is sure yet.
Probably Hina's, so she'll be ded or have a badass eye patch or whatever.
Nah, just letting him be blind would pass up a chance to make him more special. Given the eye transplant fetish Kishimoto cultivated while he was at the helm, I'd be surprised if his assistant didn't grant Boruto an additional devilgod eye where his asshole is supposed to be, that shoots death rays and can see where the sun ain't shining.
That's what makes it so good. He fought to the end, even when it was nearly futile, for a non-flashy death, just to do what was right and protect the next generation. It's one of the few moments that really stands with the main themes of Naruto.
Yeah, this is why I don't actively hate it, but when I was watching those few episodes I was just sitting there all, dude, you've been deathflagged to hell and back these last few episodes, you should probably get the fuck out of there.
In between laughing at the concept of a jutsu to surpass metal gear, of course.
The way boruto was holding that rasengan above his head looked like a spirit bomb. It took way shorter to make than a spirit bomb. That thing could easily destroy the village with no long charge time
Well, everyone else had their student-surpasses-master edo tensei fight, except Naruto who got to bone Nagato again.
Then again the fight would've been so uneven at that point it probably was for the better.
Like anon said before it would be meaningless to copy his moves since her reserves are minisclue to his . Like 0.2% of his. Besides Naruto only knows 2 moves, Rasengan/Rasenshuriken and Shadow Clones unlike other top tiers who have a varied arsenal. Those moves dont make him strong its his power modes that augment those moves (turns them into fucking nukes)that makes him a god. Sage Mode, Kyuubi Mode, Bjuu Mode, Six Paths Sage Mode Sarada aint copying shit worthwhile for goldy boy. Its why Burts Rasengan has a twist to it because normal rasengan(see Konohamaru) is shit.
now this makes more sense but still amount to jack shit. she can copy what? some fire ball justu and shuriken techs? because he dittched them in favour ofr chakra gundam and hell fire, one of once salad needs EMS for and the other she cant get becuase of Itachi eyes, she can one from papa but unlikely. all this shit doesnt matter since he ignores for Bort regardless.
copy what? his irrelevant 1000s justu he never fucking shows? kakashit is only relevant for 2 things. Chidori/Raiton Shinden and Kamui and he lost of them and Bort already knows the other.
Who else "Naruto ended, boruto isn't canon" here?
Way ahead of you. I dont even count Shippuden as canon.
For real things were going so damn well up until the end of the Sasuke Retrieval Arc i'm happy with just stopping there. Everything after that is like some crazy fan fiction with wizards and aliens and bullshit.
See the thing is you got Hunter x Hunter, Berserk, Jojo, Hellsing, Yu Yu Hakusho, One Punch Man, Gintama, and even Bleach are series that are long running but haven't degraded all their characters to the point of embarrassment.
Now some of them are mostly safe due to hiatus but the thing is Kishimoto is the only one to fuck up this badly when it comes to the characters and their retarded actions.
So the kush frog told Jiraiya and everyone else that Naruto must be alone in shitty conditions? See that makes no fucking sense if he's destined for great things with a fucking super fox in his belly.
Also wasn't Nagato the supposed prophecy?
How will Boruto become edgier now that the master of edge has mellowed out?
>she'd never hit hm because of how skilled and experienced they are.
She'd never hit them because the stat difference can't even be measured. She could however use anything she ripped from them to destroy everyone in her power bracket.
So rumours suggest that Neji will sorta become guardian angel of Boruto or Sarada since CC2 begun foreshadowing it >>154412187
Also, does Boruto turning Ootsutsuki lmao because Momo literally put curse seal on his palm?
that character design immediately makes me think everything that came after the boruto movie in the manga was uber shit.
how much more shit can you place on someone's face? it looks like his wet face rolled over a circus.
>double scratched headband (is he a fucking Rogue Ninja now?)
if he had earrings and piercings there wouldn't anything more you could add to the face
fuck im drunk
I bet the fuckers revive will Itachi again...
fuck i need to lay off the whiskey
What was his name again?
>rock lee SD spin off
>50 episode SD anime
>sasuke SD manga
>new boruto SD spinoff
i say author having a good run
didn't know there was a Bort spinoff.
Is that out now or later on?
Good run of good fun. Some of the SD eps were funny as shit, just 'cause it's Lee running around with dick jokes and turning Neji into a chick.
Boruto SD manga will out on somewhere around april/may
>Lee running around with dick jokes and turning Neji into a chick.
they did that in recent episodes kek
He couldn't have run away after they found him. He was trapped, so he tried to at least reason with Pain. Konan could have joined in too then he would have really been fucked.
I wish they explored the other swordsmen. That shit ended way too god damn fast.
He doesn't need hax eyes to use that effectively any more, but it doesn't look like he does anything after Kaguya anyways.
Hashirama' death is a mystery. Tobirama decided to sacrifice himself to let the people who were supposed to protect him as the hokage survive. He died fighting something like 20 bounty hunters and the Ginkaku and Kinkaku brothers.
They should have been revived as old farts then like the 3rd.
Well, they would have been hokageless between the 2nd and 3rd for a while then. Unless he became hokage around age 15. Just seems like a plot hole with the ages.
This. In Danzo's flashback Hiruzen looks young af. There is an age and timeline problem in Naruto. Giving that Hashirama was alive when Tsunade (his grand-daughter) was born he probably died when she was like 3, but that creates a lot of problems for the age of several characters.
I hope Sarada will be more than a jobber like Sakura. Just imagine if all 3 main characters are actually relevant.
It won't happen, though. Boruto is Goku. Snakeboy is Vegeta. Salad is Bulma.
I'm sort of actually miffed at how Kishi didn't do anything with the women in his series, especially the ones that had potential.
LIke Sakura pre shippuden sucked, but then shippuden started and itw as like holy fuck Sakura is cool now! Shes got super strength and all that shit, her fight with the puppet guy was really cool.
Then she gets sidelined and never grows past that. Hinata is the same way, just sort of sits there in the background.
The biggest waste of potential though is our one, our only, the based girl herself..
Salad caps at mangekyou and Bort got a fresh new god ayy tat and who knows what aspull powers he'll get from them plus it seems like they are going to make byakugan the new sharingan and don't even get me started on mikki who is basically Orochimaru's ninja Kira j. Yamato, who knows what kind of shit he can pull off.
You're overstating the shittiness of Naruto's childhood.
It wasn't as bad as fanfic writers make it seem.
It came down to the fact that in his home life, he was pretty much completely alone and had pretty much no parental attention or anything like that. They weren't mean to him really, just ignored him. Still bad, but its not like mobs were beating him.
Plus in multiple flashbacks, we're shown that he did have friends. He seemed to play quite a lot with Kiba, Shikamaru, and Choji when they were growing up.
Who the fuck knows, same reason I asked about 1 and 2. Maybe more eye fuckery? Who knows.
I guess. But then how did that asshole learn it?
Speaking about shit that doesn't make sense, is the current Orochimaru even the same one that was sealed by Itachi?
The current one came from Anko's seal, so could be be different beings now? But then how would he get the souls of the previous hokages? This is an other massive fucking plothole.
I'm pretty sure Tenten was just a meme from the start. I mean, I don't think her chuunin exam fight was even shown?
I guess at least she gets a job after the show is over unlike every other girl who ends up as a fucking housewife.
ALways wondered about that an de can't remember if it was ever explained.
The Second did not look old at all when he died meaning that Hashirama who died before wasn't that old either.
But Madara was literally like a 100 years old when he finally died
Females take a back seat in pretty much every shonen , it kind of comes with the territory, they're more like window dressing than anything else. Ineffectual good guys or villains or waifubait. Best they can hope for is to be plot relevant due to convenience with a certain power or intellect.
actually, the really funny thing is that, at least according to filler stuff, Orochimaru was working with Danzo before the Hokage found out, so his new job would be the same as his old job.
Danzo's obviously a later invention by Kishi, but it wouldn't surprise me if Danzo signed off on his invasion.
Its annoying that, that is the case. Not even cause muh equality shit, but sincerely because some of the combat themes of some of the girls were legit interesting. Temari and Tenten for instance have combat styles no one else in the series had, and they were wasted.
Like how come instead of the fuck long saga of fucking Kabuto's backstory, couldn't we have gotten something about Tenten even have as long instead. Hell they even set her up almost by making it so that she might get her hands on some sage weapons or something, then just blew that idea apart.
Second literally looked like that in the chapter he died in. So not what I would call old looking. Hashirama died I guess a couple of years before him so wasn't probably not old looking either.
My problem is that Hashirama was a grandfather when he died so he should've been older than as he was depicted.
But Kishi I still pretty incoherent when it comes to ages and timelines.
>Hashirama was a grandfather when he died so he should've been older than as he was depicted.
Hashirama was the OG hax, his genes can literally do anything.
I mean he beat, EMS madara with kyubi susanoo without any eyehax or tailed beasts.
Tenten's problem is that her gimmick of "throwing a fuck ton of weapons at you all the time" is pretty shit and doesnt lend itself to much creativity in combat.
What they should have done is made her a straight up master of just a few, like a staff, sword, or what have you. Emphasize her abilities as enhancing her unrivaled skill with a weapon and keep the fights intimate and less bombastic, instead of just hurling a bunch of shit at you.
Kabutp specifically said he made modifications to Madara's reanimated form so he would be back to his prime along with the enhancements he gained when he was old.
she hasn't fully embraced the edge
Nah, she could've been fine if she just got gud at what she does. She could've been like the puppetmasters from the sand village, except with weapons. Being able to perfectly control 100 knives at the same time would be pretty badass.
It'd be cool sure but it opens itself up to the same problem Temari showed against her. Just swing her big ass fan and done. It just feels especially easily to pigeon hole her into jobber status.
Maybe have strong enough control that a bit of wind isn't an issue. Maybe throw weapons from every direction. Maybe toss them in waves and reuse the ones that get knocked away.
And yeah, ultimately you obviously need more tricks up your sleeve. That's the problem with pretty much every character in the series, they're more or less one trick ponies except for Sasuke and Naruto.
>Also, does Boruto turning Ootsutsuki lmao because Momo literally put curse seal on his palm?
>hey kid you killed a god so you can't be a normal human anymore
>here's this seal that conveniently turns you into something more than human
It's heavily implied.
Being hyper-specialized wasnt as much of a problem pre-timeskip, although there were still some BS hack powers lingering around like the Sharingan and Byakugan but i could look past those things as being purely beneficial with no drawbacks because they were supposed to be a big deal and important.
The real problem came Shippuden time and just at the end of the Sasuke Retrieval Arc and we got introduced to weird ass curse mark shit and transformations.
>didn't know there was a Bort spinoff
We haven't heard much about it, but I think it'll start after the Sasuke SD is wrapped up.
I guess we've kinda found the problem with shonenshit writers then. They think women are some kind of alien creatures that have to be studied.
Jesus christ, just write them in the same way as you write male characters. It's not rocket surgery.
>Being able to perfectly control 100 knives at the same time would be pretty badass
You mean like this edgy asshole?
>Comparing Salad, Itachi Jesus Uchiha.
Nothing can stop Itachi, since he is one of the greatest sues in fiction.
If he was still alive he probably could have solo'd Madara and kaguya at once.
He ascended beyond just being an Uchiha.
>and just at the end of the Sasuke Retrieval Arc and we got introduced to weird ass curse mark shit and transformations
Except those were cool as shit and much better than the magic chakra skeletons that later came to replace them. Even if Sasuke's turned him into a hair metal flappy hand monster.
That wouldn't work at all. Caged Bird is only useful for slavery and brain scrambling. Sasuke might look for someone to help seal it though. Maybe stop by Orochimaru's since he/she's studied this thing in depth.
New OP and ED confirmed for Burrito anime.
They were alright. Not cool enough to justify their BS in most respects i think. When it comes to Sasuke anyway.
They made for great twists in the battles with the rest of the retrieval squad though which is why i can excuse it for them.
>Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki get sucked into a portal
>and transported to another dimension/planet
>it has chakra wielding beings
>the culture/world is similar to Greek mythology
>they begin to help out and work for some of the people of that realm
> they take on mercenary, terrorist, and other evil organizations
>they eventually begin to uncover the origin of the aylmaos and their end game
>they jump to other dimensions and and learn the bloody history of chakra
How? Maybe someone else happened to come up with the same jutsu.
I'm sure there's a ninja clan elsewhere who thought making flesh and blood clones would be a pretty sick idea.
Naruto could have been fixed from the very beginning if Kakashi was the protagonist all along and Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura were just three comic relief dumbasses no one gives a shit about.
That is honestly pretty cool
>Bort trains under not!Hercules, learns how to be a non-chunni badass
>Salad trains under not!Athena, learns battle tactics/techniques, philosophy, and how not to be a complete retard while in power
>Mitsuki trains under not!Hermes, learns how to be a good healing fuckboy
>main threat of Greek world is barbarians/Persians and their alien gods
>At ninja world, simultaneous arc about how people are reacting to disappearance of Neo-Team 7
>ends with ninja-world and Greek world joining forces to form pseudo-Roman Empire
Guys, guys, listen guys, what if Sasuke, guys, what is Sasuke... was a girl?
Found a version with better resolution and size
Not really, no. It's just easy to hate on because of the fanbase. It really dragged on toward the end and some of the asspulls were pretty terrible, but it was far from the worst shounen series out there. Although the amount of filler in the anime didn't help, for those who watched that.
The entire series would be fixed if any of these characters were the main character. Rock Lee, Tenten, Suigetsu, Kabuto, Kakashi, Jirobo, Konohamaru, Deidara, Shino, Sai, Yamato ands Shikamaru
Plenty of people disliked Naruto between his messiah-complex and Sasuke obsession, it's just that since the series ended most people have forgotten about his flaws since they're no longer relevant while the same hasn't been true for Sasuke and Sakura.
Honestly I always found Naruto as a character annoying as fuck. That's why I like Boruto more.
I'm talking about just to start out. He did fine. Typical sort of buffoonish shonen protagonist who had his moments of coolness. Loud, hotblooded, kind of obnoxious. It's all to be expected. But he did actually grow a little bit as it progressed. More trusting of his team mates, less prone to fly off the handle and do stupid shit, less of a know-it-all while knowing very little. It worked.
Your point about the Sasuke obsession is true but that goes back to Sasuke being a terrible foil in general and the relationship never seeming to progress past the point of token rivalry.
Holy shit we might get a new trailer soon. Fucking finally
>Orochimaru was the only Sannin to reproduce
He has no parents. He is literally a clone with Sennin energy. It was revealed Orochimaru made tons of Mitsuki clones and one of them is a spy who looks the same as the guy of Metal Gear Solid.
> and the relationship never seeming to progress past the point of token rivalry
Honestly that's why I like the new generation so much more. They actually feel like friends. Team 7 was a dysfunctional mess they tried to sell as sharing some kind of unbreakable bond. It was bullshit, especially compared to the other genin teams around them.
No, It started out pretty good. I think what happens is when something starts out exceptional but declines pretty low and makes people resent it more than it would have been if it had stayed bad all throughout.
I'd say series like Fairy Tail are worse.
Never understood this meme. The term gateway drug is used to describe a drug that leads to stronger and more life threatening drugs.
When you use the term "gateway anime" you're implying that it's an anime that leads people in to watching more anime.
What the fuck do you think people do here?
It doesn't assess the fact that even if Naruto isn't that great, that doesn't mean the people who watched it are going to have shit taste.
It started out well, and it did a lot of world building well, but it discarded it all for typical shonen tropes. The series suffered heavily from its weekly nature and the fact that it introduced too many characters and bloated its goal along with the power creep.
>I want to be Hokage
>let's save the world in the meanwhile and fulfill this giant prophecy and let's have a rival fight
Naruto could have been so much better if it kept its fights interesting all the way. Sharingan was too strong, and there were no unexpected fight outcomes.
Were the necks like that in part 1? I can't really remember. Anyway, it's pretty obvious what they're going for. They even had Boruto and Naruto start out at the same point in their lives - just before they graduate from the academy.
The thing is at the beginning people view Naruto as burden who cant get things right
However he became top tier ninja and suprised everyone
But things are different with Boruto.
People expects Bpruto to be like his dad. and even he manages to surpass Naruto, people will say "as expected from son of 7th and grandson of 4th"
In any case that Boruto fails, people will view as him as burden who cant get things right
This. Naruto was all about trying to get the acknowledgement of others, but Boruto is about trying to get out of his father's shadow. The previous protagonist's goal serves as an obstacle to the new protagonist. It's not something you see too often in shounen.
This is a Hinata who receives the Kage Dick no Jutsu. This is the best Hinata. No exceptions.
Here's the Uzumaki family translations from the anime website.
The leader of the village of Konohagakure, the Seventh Hokage, and the shinobi hero that ended the war that once took place. He brought peace to a shinobi world that was nothing but fighting. However, he is overwhelmed with Boruto’s unprecedented behavior. He may make mistakes in his way of parenting, but he worries about his son Boruto. He is so busy that he doesn’t have time to sleep, and runs around the village every day.
Boruto’s mother. She was once a kunoichi of the same time period as Naruto. She is usually kind, but seems scarier than anyone else when she’s angry. She worries for Boruto, who, in an unheard of manner, doesn’t take training seriously, and she sometimes scolds him. She is the user of a visual power called the “byakugan.”
Son of Uzumaki Naruto, who is the Seventh Hokage and leader of the village. With an unheard of nature, he immediately ditches his training and is not serious, but he is actually a prodigy and possesses a kind side that cares for his friends more than anyone. He brushes off the label of “Son of the Seventh” and decides in his heart “I will follow my own path.”
Boruto’s younger sister. Since her father Naruto doesn’t return home much, she feels lonely. On the other hand, she loves her older brother Boruto, who is kind to her and plays with her.
I guess Bort's a lazy fuck who hates training because everything until the movie came easily and naturally to him.
>Everyone else gets a super long, incredibly detailed, and storied description chronicling their achievements or relevance to the plot
>Himawari's is literally "Oh and he has a sister too, i guess"
And here you guys thought the girls would get to do anything.
It was great at the beggining:
-Orochimaru atacks Konoha
These were the best time of the show. After this, Kishimoto start with the gay shit with sasuke. In shippuden the show is not about ninjas anymore, it is a shitty dbz.
Besides that Mom's being "scary" and comically violent when mad is nothing new in shonen, or all kinds of media really. Look at Chi Chi from Dragon Ball. Straight up super bitch.
Which is unnecessary since Hinata and Kushina are nothing alike personality-wise. Why would they reinforce that with Hinata when it's been blatantly stated that Naruto himself takes most of his personality from her?
Orochimaru should've been the final boss.
In another world, one in which Kishimoto isn't a shithack writer, the story would been Orochimaru is Hitler-Isis and the five nations have to join together to stop a mad terrorist, not a fucking space god and an army of zombie people.
>The Akatsuki went from a band of powerful ninja mercenaries profiting from a world at or on the brink of war into a kaiju hunters
I mean even on paper it doesnt sound that bad these are some of the same elements that lead to the power creep Naruto needed to avoid in order to maintain its better, more interesting battles and fight scenes.
I think I'm nearing the end of the Sasuke Retrival Arc now /a/
>Sand Village: How can we prove to the Leaf that we're sorry?
>I know, let's send a couple of genin and that sand spirit child we wanted to be rid of so badly we tried to assassinate him several times
Gaara becoming kazekage is the equivalent of the zodiac killer becoming a political leader.
Actually, on second though, all politicians are corrupt so this might be the most accurate aspect of Naruto.
They can shoot fucking fire from their mouth, being stealthy and shit wont do a thing in a real shinobi battle.
Use a binding jutsu
Hide explosive notes around where you are that are triggered by motion meaning they explode if your foe is nearby. Also Byakugan lols at any stealth.
>Plenty of people disliked Naruto between his messiah-complex
Are you literally saying that you disliked Naruto because he was a moralfag?
it's highly likely.
Her mom was stacked at age 14, so Hima has a good chance of being sexylicious too.
So sakura's character is just being "scary'?
Kek. Hinata can be scary when angry, that's it. She doesn't give tow fucks and will take your eyes from their socket if needed, while Sakura can't even plant a kunai into a rinnegan without being scared.
Byakugan is king of stealth. When you play something like Assassin's Creed with a third person camera, allowing you to see around walls, you are basically playing with the benefits of having a byakugan. Shit would be far more difficult with a first person camera.
