Why do people watch this again?
I saw the first few episodes, thinking that this series might bring back what made the earlier naruto so great; a sense of atmosphere, tactical use of shinobi weapons instead of over-powered jutsus an' shit and some god damn nuanced characterisation. Instead I got a series whose characters follow a varied cookie cutter selection of their parents, and stupid, shitty dumbass tropes. And that's also not to mention the shitty animation quality, but that's passable.
Give me a reason why I should invest my time into this again?
One because hawawa
Two because Boruto is a legit good anime because Boruto is infinite better of a protagonist than part 1 Naruto ever was.
Third because hawawa is here to stay and is made more relevant than before.
Trying to establish Konoha's first puppet division?
That pink bunny might as well be her first pet before it died
>Saske and Toneri in one episode
>Naruto felt sorry (making his best friend crippled for life? Making shit awkward for Saske and Sakura?)
>Otsutsuki (the OG, not those pariah loke kimimaro) clan is extant and there are probably more than 2 of them
Man imma hype
>Kinshiki and Momoshiki are literally Nappa and Vegeta of Boruto
IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN
NOTHING CAN STOP PINKSHIT GENETICS
So what we learned from today episode is that Boruto's eye name is Jougan and Kaguya broke some Otsutsuki clan's rule that's why she is afraid someone gonna come to get her thus She decided to build an army with infinite tsukuyomi to fight them, Is that right?
That's disgraceful to the shinobi world.
Kaguya became immortal after eating the fruit
Which was supposed to be Momoshiki's in the first place
But you know, Kaguya got too involved in with the handsome king then got hunted down, then completely lost it
No Kaguya is not really a threat right now since she's sealed. What Sasuke trying to find is the threat that scare Kaguya so much that make her want to make an army to fight them.
Why is the anime so different from the manga?
Boruto seems way more powerful than he was during the chunni exam on the movie/manga and we are not even there yet.
Also, sarada looking for sasuke arc when? The manga was great
What's Toners deal? Is he gonna be some kind of 'guru' for Burrito?
>Nue is connected to the ayylmaos
>By extension, so is Sumire
>Boruto is also connected via his eye and whatever seal he receives later
>Danzo overall, is not playing 50D chess with Hiashi, but was in on The Plan™ this entire time
He can't keep getting away with it.
Naruto since the end of Shippuden can be described with three words
>Filler cash grab
This shit is so booooooooring
How the fuck does that look like a boy. She looks disgusting in the manga by Ikemoto.
HERE COMES OUR BOI
I have a bit of hope that instead of this series being a shit tier SoL like >>159701342 said it will turn back into what naruto does best which is fun fights between decent characters with interesting techniques. I mean surely thats what they plan?

He is stronger than his peers right now yeah but there are maybe one year left until chuunin exam. Remember He is a geniuses but always slacking off. Meanwhile the other keep training to get stronger like Sarada after gaiden since She find her motivation to be a hokage. When we get to the chuunin exam the other might be manage to be as strong or even stronger than Boruto. He wants to prove himself to his father but He knows he has been slacking off on his training. Afraid to dissapoint his father, he resort to cheating. At least that's how I think things will progress.
Guys you can pair up all you want but don't be absolutely retarded about the actual story going forward.
Why would I expect the story to stop in the first place?
It's going to be confirmed that Kaguya did nothing wrong. Calling it now.
It's the walkie talkies. You know? The ones they use?
>Implying these last 15 episodes haven't been better than the large majority of Part 2
Lol the last 8 or so episodes aren't even close to be called SoL. It feels like it because they are in the academy and right now it being more light hearted, but if the Sumire plot is indeed related to the Otsutsuki, then it was a pretty big deal.
Maybe they don't invade earth, instead we get the protagonists invading them.
Boruto Namek Arc fucking when?
We already got our Nappa and Vegeta, now's the time for Freeza. Sasuke is already the piccolo too.
Guys, guys. Guys this is important
Wasabi and Namida had a lot of lines you guys
Weren't we saying how great it would be if Shino adopted her a while back?
That make me wonder. Since the Chuunin exam crashed by Momoshiki, that mean Boruto and the others have to retake the exam right? Any chance Himawari enter the exam at younger age like Itachi?
Was there ever a Naruto character as universally loved as Sumire?
We did it H/a/wawa.
I'm proud of you neckbeards. Thanks for being the colossal faggots that you are. I will enjoy this ride for many days to come.
>Implying that the ayy lmaos won't come for the Nue in the remake of the movie arc in this anime or she won't be in the chunni exam before hand. Your autistic my dear pinkshit fan
the core idea of Ayylmaos were def based on Pic Related
Hawawa has no chance because she's just an irrelevant side character that's going to be put on an irrelevant team and might show up once every 4 arcs to look cute and do nothing else. Meanwhile Salad is one of the main characters and is constantly with Burrito supporting him along the way.
All of the Team Guys
I think I'm starting to get how the Ootsutsuki work. Every pair or so gets their own dimension and can harvest fruit to their heart's content, but must obey certain rules and probably can't introduce on another clan member's territory unless they break the rules like Kaguya did.
Who said anything about being more prominent? No one said "oh she'll take over the story". Just that she'll still be around. With Toneri talking about the Nue, there's going to be a future role for her
Gaiden is just about to start you retard. They're probably 11 by now and ready to graduate.
I dunno how many more we'll get. At least one is guaranteed because Kawaki has a seal, unless the flashforward represents the Pain arc of Boruto and the Ootsutsuki invasion takes place afterwards.
That face she has there with the
These edits are sugoi. Anymore of them anon?
That makes sense. Boruto's eye seems to be attuned to breaches in space. The Nue and the Gozu Tennou were apparently Danzo's attempt to use Kaguya's jutsu, so Bort's eye went haywire to close the "gate".
OH FUCK IT'S /OURGUY/! HE HAS A ROLE! HE'S TRYING TO STOP MOMO AND KIN. ARE WE GONNA SEE THEM FIGHT?
>Episode where she accidentally calls Shino otou-san when
Naruto confirmed for best Uchiha dad
Anons trying to compare a dogshit to an Uchiha with 1 moment and think she's better. It's time to wake up from your tsukuyomi anons.
>So you don't even know the age
Of course. The manga only comes out once a month while the anime comes out every week with new>>159702377
>Too bad the data around the end of 2014 and first half of 2015 is dead
Why is that? Were the archives having trouble?
I quit. I'm done with this shitty fucking show. I gave it a chance to right the wrong that was purpleshit and SP fucked me with this noncanon trash. Then having Sarada loose the background loli? this episode is everything wrong with Boruto. too much power and attention given to filler trash like sumire and not enough given to the main characters. Boruto as a series has been great until now by focusing on the main three, I'll start watching again once the academy arcs are over and purpleshit finally stops appearing on screen.
>By chance we have come to meet again, I see...
>Boruto: Pearl-gray nightmare!?
Sakura was also the main female lead and in the same team as Naruto, while Hinata was in another team and didn't showed up that often.
Now with who got Naruto together in the end?
>People who seriously think Naruto isn't trying his best
If Sumire, Wasabi and Namida are on a team then you realize Sumire's gonna be carrying the other three hard
>Yeah... sorry updated
Everything's fine now!
Joke's on you, kid. The Anime is the actual main canon for Boruto; that's the reason why they're making adjustments and changes into canon.
The Academy Story is part of a novel written by the author of the Boruto story, with the supervision of Kishi.
Uzumakis go through a late growth spurt.
>Anime is canon for Boruto
I should come to these threads more.
Not showing up to a birthday at all is better than showing up just to ruin it.
It is due to Kishi selfinserting his own problem into the Boruto and Naruto. Now that he has more free time for his children as Naruto had ended, I am sure this bullshit won't stayed for long.
fucking this. .I feel the common recycled complaints are people who watched the movie but haven't seen the anime which is the definitive version.
>Naruto is a shit father
>It's shown naruto actually does come home and spends time with his kids so he's a busy father not a shitty one
>Sasuke is a shit father
>Sasuke at least occasionally gives Sakura a "yeah, sorry" whenever he can, atleast showing he doesn't resent the idea of having a family.
>Boruto is naruto 2.0
>Boruto is smarter, stronger, and overall more likable than his father was at this point. He's sasuke without the autism.
>Boruto is edgy
>The anome has changed this from "he's edgy:" to "He's a chuuni"
>all the kids are copy+paste of their parents
>outside of shikidai (since I'm pretty sure the nara family is just one man being reincarnated through himself until the end of time) all the kids are their own characters, and there are even non-legacy characters.
this, the art might not be that good, but so far all the changes in the Boruto manga have been great.
This is what I'm seeing. The anime is the most refined out of the three; the manga is too short, while the movie is too much of a legacy thing.
Remember when every team was supposed to have a medical ninja? What ever happened to that?
What is Naruto even apologizing for? Is not his fault Sasuke and Sakura's marriage is a disaster and he wasn't hokage when Sasuke first ditched his family. He can't babysit them forever.
That's what happens when your ninjutsu is just a fucking gun
There's no reason why Naruto has to spend so much time at the office. They're living in a time of peace, and the previous Hokage didn't kill themselves for the job like that.
>>Sasuke at least occasionally gives Sakura a "yeah, sorry" whenever he can, atleast showing he doesn't resent the idea of having a family.
There's no reason why Sasuke had to never see his daughter. I mean, there is literally no reason given at all. Kishimoto didn't even attempt to excuse it. If anything, both the manga and now the anime make it clear that Sasuke is free to come visit home whenever he wants. If you want Sasuke to be vindicated, there needs to be at least one semi-valid reason why he had to stay away from his daughter for 12 years. Any of the following would do:
-I was trapped in an alternate dimension all this time
-I had enemies after me and couldn't put you in danger
-I was aware of a time-sensitive threat that would necessarily destroy everything we know if I didn't put my every waking hour into countering it
>-I was aware of a time-sensitive threat that would necessarily destroy everything we know if I didn't put my every waking hour into countering it
Isn't this the case tho? With Sauce gathering info about the ayy lmaos
that's funny, because it won't happen.
Going to be a good day.
Someone with a couple of episodes going to beat Salad, maybe in a different dimension.
These anons who think an anime only is going to take Bort. I can't wait till they get BTFO and they should settle down when the focus returns to best salad.
This is the ssme reason why Naruto has to work harder.
>hard times create strong people
>peace/easier times create weaker people
It just kinda makes sense for him to work harder for the village to not fall into some form of stagnation.
>Remember when every team was supposed to have a medical ninja?
That's actually being addressed better in Boruto. Mitsuki and Inojin are both medics. Denki will probably be one too.
I am sure if the last five-six episodes are getting revealed in the west, then it will build up a similiar hype as Naruto back then in the Chuunin exams.
Momoshiki and Kinshiki scene is literally Vegeta&Nappa DBZ hype level.
You people and your shipping shit is ridiculous. Sumire will die, and in Boruto's arms she'll tell him how she was happy he gave her another chance at life, short though it was. Then he'll bone Salad.
>Idiots still don't realize that while Sarada will be going up the ladder, Boruto will eventually go Rogue and will be separated from her.
And that's where Sumire, Denki and Iwabe come back in the story.
Silver medal win =/= actual win
Watch the focus of Sumire in anime and /a/ go down slowly each week.
I never said that but you guys thinking an original character who's not even on his team will be beat Salad.
Ok, where the fuck are you pinkshitfag? Are you mad? Stay mad.
She does not only stay. She has direct relevance to the plot. The Gozu Tennou was not just a jutsu from Danzo, it was something that is connected to Kaguya herself! What the hell can it actually do?
With this I am sure that the movie will be retconned to play along with the new plot.
>I never said that but you guys thinking an original character who's not even on his team will be beat Salad.
you're forgetting that Sarada's mom was Naruto's teammate, and still lost to Hinata.
Okay I don't know if you're just retarded or willfully ignorant but here's the truth. The writer for the manga and anime is the same guy, also supervised by Kishimoto who we know actually looks into the production. There is no hierarchy to the materials. They are all connected as one large original production. Ikemoto draws for the manga and light novel as well which is where we saw the anime-only characters in his style for the first time. This isn't like a typical production.
The last five or so episodes are literally god tier. They revived my excitement over the series I lost when the 4th ninja war began.
I really hope now the throw the manga out of they way and continue with the anime because the anime is great. Sumire chan makes it only better.
>This isn't like a typical production
Not like it can be, either. Naruto is a big name, and its sequel needs to be as carefully balanced as possible. Maybe it'll benefit it in the long run.
>naruto started as a story about ninjas
>now we space alien ninjas and ghosts
Can we just skip Gaiden? We have a much better plot being cooked right now. Why would I want to watch their retarded family drama when there is something much more interesting to watch?
>implying she's stronger than boruto
Dunno what's the problem. So far, the movie hasn't invalidated anything we've seen so far. Boruto, Mitsuki and Salad will end up in a team. Boruto will fight the ayylmaos and learn the jutsu that ruined Naruto. That doesn't suddenly mean that Denki, Iwabe and especially Hawawa are suddenly conflicting.
Heck, at this point they can pull off in the manga that Salad was just temporarily filling in for Sumire and it still wouldn't conflict.
It's implied Naruto is the one giving Sasuke the tasks that have him spending years away from the village. Which is why he apologizes. Just like Naruto, sasuke takes his job very seriously. I'm sure he can't bring himself to return home until his job is done.
oh it'd fucking trump sarada and boruto. I'm pretty sure the key problem with sharingan users was "shit, outta chakra." which all the strong ones circumvented by literally turning into gods. if a uzumaki gets their hands on that juice it's over
>calling sumire a filler character
>when salad herself has no actual relevance to the plot
Yeah, she will stay on team Konohamaru. It's just that she will have as much relevance to the plot as Sakura.
I think people are missing a key point that ties into the end of the movie: Ootsutsuki have rules, and Momoshiki, unlike Kaguya, adhered to those rules.
So pic related is something the Ootsutsuki do as a custom. Most likely to continue the passing of power that they've spent millennia accumulating, even to those who defeat them.
Boruto is like 8 and he already has legendary eyehax.
>Salad will be 2nd
Not anymore with Sumire around.
>That barely audible "hawawawa" at the end
>kaguya's forbidden jutsu
>being adept with water jutsu
>being stronger than a chuunin already
>having a connection with the ayys
You tell me who is going to be stronger
All this fighting between Sarada & Sumire nobody will notice the hidden gem.
She'll get her time in the sun
She still has a contract with a beast from another dimension.
>can meet with his butt buddy nardo and tell him to pass a message to his wife
>can't go home in the dead of night and tell her in person
Anon She's the Coolest girl. She's Obito
>team with all dudes
>team with all girls
Why is this allowed?
>Can we just skip Gaiden
No because it's relevant to motivations in the movie and Sarada got no screentime solely because they were going to give her this entire arc. I met like Sumire, but I like Sarada too. Even though Gaiden is shit.
Notice that the ayys did never say Gozu Tennou. They only mentioned the Nue. The Nue is they key, not the jutsu.
Nue is its own thing, always was. Gozu Tennou was the contract with Nue and the ability to weaponize the chakra inside it and blow up. The contract effectively facilitated an interdimensional bond with Nue, allowing it to pass through a gate into the shinobi world. That's the "hidden jutsu" of Kaguya's Danzo had nearly stumbled upon - the gateway.
Little slow in places, but good character introduction, development, and buildup and payoff were handled well. It's also good to see a mystery where you can go back to previous episodes and notice clues like Sumire's sideways glance on the roof after Boruto summed Nue's tail. Predictable, but coherent.
Her tattoo is probably like Boruto's. When she enters combat mode with Nue, it's going to grow back.
A solid 7/10.
Things that I liked:
-The interactions between the kids in the academy
-Shino's character development
-Sumire ending up being such a well written female character.
What I disliked:
-The monster of the week format in the beginning.
-The older generations getting nerfed
-Naruto being a jerk in the beginning
I think I hate the whale more than Sumire.
not quite sure but isn't team Jiraiya an all male team? they all look male to me.
youre telling me that these newly recruited, unexperienced and young boy genins are to transform into girls and then have their butts tossed around like a bowl of salad if the mission requires it
>-Naruto being a jerk in the beginning
Naruto never stops being a jerk.
Not sure if that's in the manga or not. Though I think Gai's team in the manga is all boys. That's probably why he's such a poorly adjusted adult.
Doubt that. Namida and Wasabi all got a voice in the first episode and focus in the opening and both endings.
It's going to be these twelve kids. Maybe later we'll get some flashbacks of the other class mates.
When you transform into something, it's not an illusion. You physically change. We see characters get transformed into weapons, folded up, and stored on characters' backs. If they can do that, then transforming themselves a penis and vagina is nothing.
It feels kind of weird how the anime and manga work, when one pretty much just focuses on Bort and pals, while the anime shows these side characters, who due to the manga feel like they're just irrelevant side characters like the old filler characters in Naruto no matter what they do
Little traitorous ninjas should not get off that easy. Sumire needs to become Konoha's public toilet until all of the villagers are satisfied.
No one has more insight than Lord Hiashi. He saw through it all. I can almost see the glorious future of the Hyuuga clan. Can the Ootsutsuki even hold a candle to him? He makes Toneri look like a joke.
Since Sumire still stays in the class and Gaiden starting soon, the anime will probably change the movie and the manga will probably introduce them now. Because today's episode was the perfect opportunity to write her off and them not doing it means that they have plans for her in the future. And if Sumire stays, then Iwabe and the other will also stay.
How would Danzo have had any information on Kaguya at all?
The only person in the naruverse aware of her existance was Black Zetsu and Danzo died long before he revealed himself.
Also read the subtitles, Toneri said Nue was stopped and it was Jougan's turn next.
The jougan is another space-time beast, not the name of the eye.
>He makes Toneri look like a joke.
>implying he didn't take pity on him and reward him for his efforts by letting him serve as borts spirit guide
If he never told him his eye was special he'd never have the drive to persevere and solve the Ghost Incident.
>How would Danzo have had any information on Kaguya at all?
Hashirama cells are connected to Ashura, remember? Point is Sasuke said he "almost" discovered it, which doesn't mean he knew beforehand. Just nearly stumbled onto it through experiments.
