Yes I do. Did Itachi look 10-12 years old to you when he and Obito massacred the Uchiha clan?QUOTE]


You want more proof that the ending took place 20 years after The Last? Look at how Kakashi, Iruka, Gai, and Kurenai looked. if the epilogue was a decade after the last and they were in their forties, why would they have wrinkles around their eyes and mouths? Minato and Kushina were in their forties during Road to Ninja and they didn't look old at all


Naruto becoming Hokage at 29 doesn't mean anything since we don't know how long he's held the position for

Also, I really suggest you click the link. There's a freaking timeline there.

If we want to split hairs Itachi would have been 13-14 when he massacred the clan I believe (Sasuke was 7-8), but still, in general I agree.

Perhaps not but, like Void Ventus said, the link you posted has a timeline scroll which seems to outright state that Chapter 700 takes place ten years after 699.

And twenty? Even if we were to entertain the notion that the ten years thing is wrong (I'm pretty sure it isn't), there is no way Mirai is 22.

Bort acting up was pretty obviously down to the fact that Naruto had recently gotten the new position and was around less. Hell, we see mid 20s Naruto and Hinata family at the end of the film.

Visible age doesn't mean much. Kurenai and Shizune are about the same age and one aged a lot better than the other.

Next time, read through your own link before making yourself look foolish when the answer is clearly in front of your face. And there are people in real life who do look older than they really are (shocking, I know). Kurenai gave up being a ninja when she got pregnant, so no wonder she looks much older (I have no doubt being a single mother is very taxing physically and mentally). Guy has been in a wheelchair since after the war, so he couldn't train anymore and keep his youth. Kakashi probably has several reasons why he also look the way he does, like maybe he stopped training once his rival also stopped, or maybe being Hokage was harder than he thought. Then there are people who look younger than they really are, like Shizune or Anko (though she got bloated).

I wouldn't. Shikamaru himself got more then the other Konoha eleven. Frankly even more the Sakura. Only Naruto and Sasuke top him. So doing that again with his kid would be too much. As much as I love Shikamaru, I'm glad they are using another kid as Salad's sidekick. I don't have a problem with Chouchou. It's not like I take this character seriously.

She's not like Karui getting mad at being called flat chested. She's not lazy but smart like Shikamaru/Dai. She's an airhead, but at least she's not the common anime trope who has DD cup jiggling breasts and is both clumsy and oblivious to things going on. I like her character, you don't, but that's fine.

Well we know that Uchiha's draw their power from emotional situations. I can only imaging the thought of seeing her father, whom she longed to meet since she could remember, would be enough of an emotional stimuli for her to awaken her sharingan.

It's not necessarily being in life threatening danger that unlocks the Sharingan. Remember, we later learned that Sasuke truly first got his Sharingan when he confronted Itachi during the massacre. For Sarada, the shock of seeing her dad for the first time provided a comparable emotional reaction, I imagine.

I don't care about the villain of this arc. Really couldn't care less about him. I just liked the Naruto, Salad, and Chouchou moments. My favorite being when Chouchou was all like "We're suppose to find my father" and Naruto responds "Where did Choji go" as that just totally flew over his head. Moments like this make reading these chapters fun. I really hope the rumors of Naruto being Salad's teacher and Sasuke being Bolt's teacher or whatever are true. The dynamics would work, especially if they with Bolt being more of a antagonist and Salad being more of a protagonist. They would basically be the opposite of Naruto and Sasuke. Naruto started off with the shady story of being associated with something bad (Kyuubi) and became a hero, while Sasuke was associated with something that started off being good and made him popular and he became a villain at one point. Now you could switch it around with Salad being associated with something bad/questionable (Sasuke) and become good, and have Bolt be associated with something good (Naruto) but turn out bad or anti-hero or whatever. Maybe I'm thinking too much on this.

Anyway this was a cool chapter. Best one yet of this series and Sasuke looks more and more like Madara. Scary.

What resemblance? They're both black and they have points; these facts are true of just about every (if not all) MS. Shisui's was a pinwheel whereas Shin's seems to be a drastically enlarged pupil with three points.

I'm really starting to like the villains less and less; it seems to me like they're trying to make another Obito copy imo. I'm loving the focus that Sarada is getting though, Naruto seems pretty cool so far, and I found his flackback and small story in this chapter about how Sasuke was his rival very nostalgic. I also actually like Chocho so far; she seems pretty good as the comedic relief character so far. I'm also interested in seeing what happens in the next chapter as I'm sure things will be resolved quickly between Sarada and Sasuke before he attacks her.

I would hazard a guess that it's a MS ability for Shin. While Kamui was unique to Obito, there was nothing saying it couldn't crop up elsewhere. Same with Sasuke's Blaze Release and Shisui's Kotoamatsukami (one would hope that one never crops up again, though), I suppose.

Alternatively, it's a Space-Time Ninjutsu that looks the same but is functionally different in other ways. Who knows?

Couldn't answer that, but if his commitment to keeping in touch with Sakura is anything like his commitment to being there for his daughter, it probably isn't an overly high priority of his. But between knowing that Naruto and Sasuke at the very least have a means of contacting one another (and I could be wrong, but Naruto's reaction to Sasuke's message didn't seem to suggest it being a one-time thing) and seeing no hint on Naruto's part that Sarada has a father that doesn't know she exists, I remain inclined to think he at least knows.

Well Shin's "dad" doesn't look like . I didn't care for Sasuke's reason for leaving the village since it still feels like he barely accomplished anything anyway.
He's bald and has transplanted eyes. Baldness can come from either inheritance from his mom or shaved his head, so being bald doesn 't confirm nor deny him being Shisui. Shisui lost both eyes, and this dude has shoddily put together Sharingan transplants on both eyes, and arm like Danzo. He doesn't have the old man marks that Kishi gave to Kakashi or Gai either, so he could be somewhere between Naruto's and Kakashi's age, exactly where Itachi and Shisui would fit in. I'm just going along the "Shisui is nUchiha!" joke, but it's still good to discuss and debate characters because Tobito.

This isn't the same Leaf Gokage meeting at the end of 700, right? Because Sasuke is already investigating? So Sauce has been looking for these nUchihas for possibly nearly 5 years? Goodness gracious, he really didn't accomplish much. Left his wife and daughter for years, only to come up short.

Someone who is more dangerous than Kaguya? Maybe the one, who created the Shinju tree?
The appearance of the masked man gave me shivers! All those implated sharingans don't look healthy...
So many "Shins"! Are they a newer, evolved version of the white zetsu army?
And dat cliffhanger! Can't wait for epic tag team action.
I think we might get a few revelations in the next chapter aswell.
So excited for this. Would have preferred making a brand new group though than reusing an old one. Heck, I would have also been fine with a recoloring. Maybe Shirotsuki or Kurotsuki, White/Black Dawn. No doubt they won't go down easily despite Naruto and Sasuke now hax gods, and hoping they won't be dealt with just yet in the movie.

So Sasuke is basically in the same boat as Naruto, with their respective duties being what is keeping them from their children; Naruto at least gets to be in the village with his, though.

Sasuke's attitude toward Sarada is still awful, though.

I'm giving Sasuke the benefit of the doubt here, at the very least he knows Sadara exists, and had somewhat of a decent reason for not being with his family.

But the way he's acting and the way he went about it pisses me off.

I wasn't really impressed with this chapter as much as I should. Salad got to scream at her father, she's probably been waiting years to do that. Sasuke's a deadbeat father but at least he had a good reason. I don't think it's a excuse to miss his daughter's life. And I guess this ends the Karin storyline, because where would that even fit in in all this mess? I still enjoy Naruto and Salad's relationship and seeing Chouchou offer Sasuke food was probably one of the few highlights of this chapter. Seriously I enjoy the Chouchou character. I already like her more then Sakura, who I don't care is coming. The last thing I want to see is Sakura and Sasuke suck face on panel. The Naruto series finally made really good female leads with a spinoff series.

By the way the real enemy that is stronger the Kaguya. I know who it is. I explained who it was during the Kaguya fight. It's the evil fruit Kaguya ate. It controlled her from her stomach and now that she's...whatever it has magically come back taking control of those Akatsuki rejects. Yep, that's the villain of this mini series. And only Chouchou will be brave enough to save the day and eat it. But overall a meh chapter.

What exactly is the rationale behind thinking Shin's (or the Shins'?) dad is Shisui? I've heard the nose theory--which doesn't seem nearly as similar now that we can see his whole face--but how exactly did it start?

It being Danzo would explain the Sharingan arm (but not why they're open again) and the stitched open eye (maybe?), but raises so many questions it's probably not worth entertaining as a possibility.

1. Shisui also cared a lot about Itachi's ideals.

2. Seeing as New Uchiha has considerably more than a couple spare eyes, I'd say this is a rather circumstantial thing to point out.

3. What does the Shunshin have to do with New Uchiha?

I'll give you Shisui being the only Uchiha with an ambiguous fate (I'd mention Izuna, but he should be long dead in any case), but given the eye spam and (seemingly) permanently active Sharingan, this relies upon us assuming he's an Uchiha in anything but name at all.

1) It's not impossible. I prefer to entertain possibilities that don't involve rehashing the Dark Naruto antagonist thrice over, though.
2) My point being, simply replacing missing eyes clearly wasn't the point. And we don't know for sure that he had to replace his eyes at all, for that matter.
3) Many Ninja have shown proficiency with Shunshin. Shisui took it to the next level, but he wasn't its sole user by any means.

Did he? Huh, could have sworn he toggled his.

He only switched one of his eyes when he had to use Izanagi as shown with his fight against Konan. His natural Sharingan he kept activated at all times with just a small amount of chakra

I don't really care who it is so long as, if we really must deal with yet another Sharingan spamming antagonist, we don't have to deal with a carbon copy of one we've already had.

Am I the only one not interested in these bad guys? I really wanted to go back to Sarada and Chouchou running around adventures of "Who are my parents?" Like Lolipiece said, the whole Karin thing seems to be a ploy to get people interested. And hey it worked. Because if they had started out with these lame Uchiha wannabees I most certainly would reconsider following this arc. They are boring. I want more Naruto interacting with Sarada and Chouchou. That was fun. As far as the battle goes, when I saw Naruto and Sasuke fall for the villains jutsu I said "And here comes Sakura about to punch the guy, Kaguya style" and what do you know, here comes Sakura punching the villain Kaguya style. I didn't mind that, but if you insist on trying to make Sakura look good, have her tank the enemies attacks and then punch him up close and kill him. That would have been a cool Sakura moment. But oh well, at least Sakura got to look cool. But these villains I do not care for. Not even remotely interested in what they are. They are just more Uchiha crap.

I find it no more strange than the fact that Naruto and Sasuke let Orochimaru go back to being as autonomous as ever without much (or any on Naruto's part, it seems) effort to keep track of what he is doing.

I smell a Raticate. This chapter started off so boring with Sakura and Uchiha-who-cares. I was wondering what all this talk about parents and children was leading up to. Then I got my answer. It's nice to see Yamato, Suigetsu and Jugo all doing so well. And Orochimaru is as young as ever. I loved Chouchou in this chapter and how she called Orochimaru a "it" that was perfect, that made the chapter good. Chouchou is the second best character behind Sarada in this. Then we get Suigetsu doing the dna test with Sarada and get the big reveal. Interesting that Karin is not in this hideout, but neither was Kabuto. I can already tell how this is going to end. Sarada's going to accept Sakura as her mother regardless of their blood and try and rescue her with the gang, not caring about the dna. Because that was what this chapter of Parents and children was all about. They smacked you right in the face with it. But seriously they just let Orochimaru run free with his experiments? I mean, sure he's not attacking Konoha anymore but still. Don't take the peace so lightly Naruto.

I'm not sure how one equals the other, though. Sasuke clearly seems to care for Sakura and Sarada in his own way, and obviously Sakura knows and accepts Sarada's parentage seeing as there's been no visible problems on her end.

Karin being the mom seems bad either way, but that doesn't say much of anything about Sasuke and Sakura's relationship as of yet.

I dont think Kabuto would want to work under Orochimaru again given everything that happened during the war. I imagine they both went their seperate ways to pursue their own individual goals.

I was thinking that too. What if Suigetsu messed up. But it wouldn't make good story writing if that is true. Because next chapter we're more then likely going to have a highly emotional Sarada who's going to lash out her feelings and if it turns out that Suigetsu just messed up the test it makes her storyline feel artificial and her emotional breakdown will lose it's meaning.

My guess is Sakura can't have kids so Sasuke went to Karin. Either way I still don't like Sakura/Sasuke pairing. Never will.

I considered the idea of it being something along these lines too; whatever the circumstances are Sakura most probably is aware of and okay with them, so it's not really a big deal. With that said, I hardly consider the manga above pulling something like Suigetsu screwing it up at this point.

Sakura being sterile would actually be a great reason why Karin is Sarada's mom. Not only does it help Sakura's character development (we could learn of issues she had to deal with when she and Sasuke found out she couldn't get pregnant), but also of Sasuke's and Salad's characters. Sakura was probably the one who encouraged Sasuke to get Karin pregnant, and this shocking revelation is a good development for Salad.

Naruto knew the whole time. Suigetsu even questioned him. Everyone else most likely knew it too, but decided to keep it quiet because they felt bad about Sakura being sterile.

I can see Karin storing Sasuke DNA in her desk and worship it (that's why she said to suigetsu that the desk is as much worth as her life) and Suigetsu simply misunderstood that and thought it was Karin's umbilical cord (that's why he used it for the DNA test).
I would not even be surprised if it's Sasuke's actual umbilical cord, because after Karin broke out of the konoha prison she had plenty of time to obtain Sasuke materials until she found Sasuke, Orochimaru, Suigetsu and the Kages on their way to the battlefield.

Well that's her private business. I mean really the only people I could see Sakura even telling anyone about that other then her husband would be Naruto, Kakashi, Tsunade and Ino, because she's closest to them. And even then it could still be a private and personal matter for her. Maybe this is why she secretly keeps a photo of Team Baka. It's probably the only photo of Karin and she has some respect for her after her help. If all this is true that is.

I think Suigetsu gave up on his Seven Swordsmen quest, which is too bad. That would have been a cool idea and it was the only part of Team Baka that really interested me. So he probably just stuck with Orochimaru. Jugo didn't really have a life or desire like Suigetsu and Karin did. So I'm not surprised he went back to Oro. Not like he had anything better to do.

A touching but somewhat boring chapter. I liked it better when it was just Naruto, Salad, and Chouchou traveling together. That was pretty fun. I still care nothing about our villain. I don't even know his name. If Sakura manages to kill him, I won't care. This villain is lame, I don't feel anything threatening from him. He's not interesting, I don't even know what he's trying to do and I don't think I care. So I say let Sakura kill the loser villain and we move on to something more interesting. As for Salad, she went through the development I expected from her since last chapter. I still really like her, but don't stretch this story out for too long with her.

My favorite part of this chapter was when Sakura was thinking of what Sasuke did to her that was better then a kiss. Was it when he choked her? When he tried to Chidori her face off? When he called her trash to her face? When he genjutsu stabbed her chest? When he said Sakura was stupid for loving him? So many Sasuke and Sakura moments to choose from. How can you just pick one?

We have two chapters left so my guess is no. He probably won't show up until the end when he gets his headband

But it's not a problem since we will have a whole movie dedicated to him

Well, this time they might be necessary since Gaiden might have readers unfamiliar with the original Naruto.
Geh... I guess so, still didn't need as many as pages as it got.


So wait, Sasuke's never kissed Sakura? Not even during their wedding? hmm...

Best marriage ever right?

I'm not even sure if you can even call it a marriage now? If they've never kissed, then does that mean they've never been intimate with each other?

Other than Sakura being beautiful, and her and Sarada being cute together, the whole chapter was Naruto basically reliving the time when him and the series actually had some type of morals and made an ounce of sense. Sasuke calling Sakura his wife was so forced. Guess they have to force feed the fact that they're "happily married". Naruto's honestly a better father to Sarada than he is to Boruto. No wonder Bolt doesn't care for him, lol. I'm surprised Kishimoto's letting Sakura get to fight so much in this series though. And to think I thought she'd be completely irrelevant in Gaiden.

Only two chapters left? I wonder if they'll try and squeeze in how Sasuke and Karin hooked up in one of them. As for the crappy villain, I guess we'll be getting another Team Seven is awesome moment to beat him. Overall other then Salad and Chouchou, this series has been underwhelming. Don't care about the villain, the idea of Sasuke and Sakura married makes me want to vomit, the whole Karin mother thing was interesting at first but really fizzled out fast. And we only have two chapters left? It's amusing that this was all about more Uchiha drama. Even if Salad is like my new favorite Uchiha now (sorry Obito)

You actually believe Sasuke put it in Karin? Seriously?

Every possible explanation to why there was a match sounds just as weird tbh.

Well, it sure is starting to look that way. Especially after this chapter were it is implied that Sakura was never intimate with Sasuke

Not in this mini-series apparently. It's all about Sarada since she's an Uchiha, while Bolt was lucky to even appear at all. :/

Another Uchiha trying to leave the village

Is this like a hidden instinct they all have when something bad happens to them?

Yes. It was explained at the end of the war arc that Uchihas have some form of mental illness that makes them more emotional.

I'm starting to have some doubts that Sasuke and Sakura are really married like they claim to be. If Sasuke really did gain feelings for her, then why haven't they ever kissed? It is just so confusing. I mean I don't expect Sasuke to be openly romantic, but surely in private they must have something

Sasuke might simply be shy around women, or perhaps he's just using Sakura as his beard.

You can't imply from that panel that they've never kissed or been intimate. In fact, Sasuke's seemed to have grown a healthy respect for his wife, thinking she can handle herself. You can imply something sexual from that panel, too. The sadness could easily be loneliness and longing for her husband who's away. But, nah, let's just assume they're totes not married and they haven't had a relationship, sexual or otherwise, for the twelve years they've apparently been together and to go along with this big honking obvious troll coming from the writers of this chapter.

If you really think there's not umpteen reasons Karin's DNA could have managed to find its way into Sarada in a manga that's ***-pulled some silly stuff, then that's pretty funny, too.

That looked as if Mitsuki was using snake hands and Bort was using Chidori. All of my predictions coming true, m8s.

so I guess Boruto did inherit Hinata's chakra nature. But wait, don't you need the Sharingan to use Chidori?

No. Kakashi created Chidori and perfected it with the help of Sharingan. Without it, he had trouble controlling it. But he could always do it without Sharingan. It's possible to do Chidori without Sharingan.
