Really? Because since he ended up putting Naruto and Hinata together, I thought he was a natural at picking good couples.

Eh, I meant it more for the Konoha clans. We don't know all that much about the Terumis.

I still say some "Danzo" would think clans interbreeding would be dangerous. I wouldn't be surprised if Boruto and Hiwa have people considering to murder them since they probably both have Kurama's chakra or something.

29th August 2015, 4:11 AM
For me, I don't mind fillers so long as they're done at the right time. In this case, they should stick with cannon till 699 is animated then do a filler arc that covers the 2 year gap that leads into The Last. Then do a follow up filler that incorporates the novels into anime form, leading into the NaruHina wedding and beyond.

The way they're going about things now can make one think and feel the anime team is trying to do to Naruto what was done to the Bleach anime.

Screw big budget fight scenes for the upcoming Kaguya and NvS fights. I say Studio Pierrot should spend all their remaining money on hiring dudes who work in those Japanese establishments where old women pay young handsome men to hang out with them and be their boy toys, and just use them as Naruto's male harem against Kaguya. Gotta cater to that female demographic.

Saw a video of Naruto and Sasuke fighting against whatever the villain is supposed to be in Boruto the movie.
Probably the male-Kaguya.

Really liked them fighting together, they look much more in sync than they were in the early days.
Personal highlight was Naruto taking Sasuke's sword mid-air and going at the male-Kaguya.
And Bolt/Boruto being awestruck with the fight, while wearing Naruto's Part-1 jacket.

All of the Infinite Tsukuyomi's dreams fillers except the Tenten one werent shown in the manga although Tenten's dream was executed differently in the anime and they were nice except karin's dream, they still have 10 dreams to show from the manga and they probably gonna add some more so the fillers gonna continue at least until January and next episode will have new opening and new ending so we could know whats gonna be shown until April from the opening.

Mr. Reloaded
1st October 2015, 8:12 PM
If this opening is truly the last one then this probably means we're gonna end the filler around the end of October-early November.

There is still 10 canon dreams of the infinite tsukuyomi that need to be shown in the anime and considering that up to now every dream is at least one episode and they're gonna add some more dreams, i'm gonna say the fillers will last until january.

The Boruto film was terrible, just as the hype led me to believe. Boruto's whininess and angst were the pits, plus the plot wasn't much better than the previous film's plot. I'm so glad that this franchise is dying down though: Now if only the anime's fillers would cease.

So I went to see Boruto and I loved it? I've got closure. It was a nice contained story, featured some cool fights and a great cast. I figured I would have some problems with Boruto, Naruto's role and the pacing but I didn't. I like Boruto more from the start more than I liked Naruto from his start. Naruto being weak made sense with his Hokage overexertion. The Chunin Exams could have had longer fights for the supporting characters though.

I can't believe Boruto obliterated a bijuu bomb with a rasengan and didn't lose his arm. That's OP.

Watched Boruto last week. It was pretty good. I don't really have much complaints, as this will probably the last movie we'll get. Ended off in a good note.
I did want to see more from the Chunin exams. The fights were pretty good and animation was top notch.
Boruto was a bit too OP, but at least we don't have a whole new series to deal with that..

In other news. There have been just eight non-filler episodes of the anime this year. EIGHT.

If they wanted more conflict in the Narutoverse, I`m sure SP could come up with something if they wanted. More Otsutsuki members as villains(or worse Uchihas). Plus there is the whole deal with Mitsuki and Orochimaru,

I just don`t see the point cause anything with the new generation would just feel like a rehash. Bolt and Sarada`s personal conflicts are resolved so I don`t know what else you could do with them

I'd rather just see this franchise end already since they pretty much ruined it after Naruto's fight with Pain imo. I can't really see anything else being that interesting anyways if they make another manga series.

Mr. Reloaded
2nd December 2015, 1:30 AM
If this is manga related then I see it being similar to Dragon Ball Super where Toriyama's not heavily involved in but is still watching over. I can't see Kishi going back so soon especially since he has that Sci-Fi manga coming up. It's most likely another movie sure but you never know.

2nd December 2015, 4:43 AM
Boruto was a super cute movie. It felt pretty easy to follow and nothing super surprised me...

But I honestly grew to like it. The emotions felt real and genuine, there were nice action scenes, and overall just very good. Nothing spectacular, but it never had to be anything more then it was, imo.

It really did bring back a sense of nostalgia, as if I was watching some old family movie with a bit more emphasis on action. Themes resonated well.

Minato is pretty boring.

We already got enough backstory of more interesting characters like Team Hiruzen,Madara,Hashirama,Ame orphans and Kakashi. There is no need for prequels because we got enough info about the past.

Platinum fan.
5th December 2015, 6:42 PM
Team Hiruzen, Madara and Hashirama more interesting then Minato? Now that I'll debate. Madara and Hashirama nearly killed the Naruto ending with their bland dinosaur age storyline. I'm shocked I made it through the final with Madara in the series. I'd take a Team Minato spinoff over any of those guys minus the Pain orphans, because they are just as interesting. Team Minato spinoff means more Kakashi and Obito before they ruined him, and both are better then Team Hiruzen, Marada, and Hashirama.

12th December 2015, 12:48 AM
A few years back Kishimoto mentioned he was considering doing a Minato prequel when the series ends (and he had Naruto's ending planned since...around 2005, I believe, so it was probably a fairly legitimate prequel consideration). That said, I'm not sure where the idea stands now.

I loved the series from start to finish (though VS Pain was amazing), but I'm just incredibly disenchanted by the immense drop in animation quality for the anime. Virtually every scene after the 10-Tails appearance is covered in a coating of grey for no apparent reason, the colours are barely there, the fluidity is lacking, and the characters' anatomies are hardly constant. I stopped watching for ages and then returned to see Gai vs Madara (just because the fight was that awesome in the manga). They handled the 5th Step of Evening Elephant extremely poorly (should've been an impact a la One-Punch Man rather than a punch in the back with a little blood coughed up), but Night Gai looked pretty good. The Opening showing a Gai and Madara back-and-forth would've been a nice expansion of the fight for the anime, but obviously they were too busy animating more filler to do that >_<. Thankfully Storm 4 is there to give all the jutsu their due justice, appearance-wise. Shame about the rest of the series, though.

I really want Kishi to do art for a videogame. His artstyle is really good. The one where he drew Team 7 with fantasy costumes by the river (I think Kakashi or Sakura was an archer) makes me yearn for a JRPG with Kishi's design, just like Toriyama has done DQ for decades now.

Anyone know when Boruto The Movie is getting a Blu-Ray release? I think it took 10 months (October 2015) for The Last to get a US Blu-Ray release after it came out in Japanese theaters (Dec 2014). Bolt came out in August, so maybe around June here?

I haven't seen the Boruto movie, so I don't know everyone. Just Boruto/Bolt, Sarada, Chocho, Sai/Ino's kid and Shikamaru's kid who's names I haven't learned yet but will shortly. I won't mind a new series aka Part 3. I just want the Boruto series to go back to the classic Naruto series of part 1. Where not everything is uber powered by destiny, Uzumaki bloodline, Uchiha bloodline, MS Sharingan and Rinnengan powerups. Go back to the fun stories of introducing all these new characters and their weird jutsu powers. This is why I loved the Chunnin Exam arc so much. Nobody felt overpowered to the point where they are invincible, not even Gaara and Neji, it introduced so many cool jutsu users and everyone felt unique and important not just Uchiha is the most dominate force in the world and Sharingan and Tailed Beast mode hax. So I hope we get fun stories like that again.

I don't know who that girl is in the pink hoodie but she looks pretty cool. Maybe she was in the Boruto movie?

The Uchiha nonsense was the biggest problem in part 2. The fact that they are more deadly then the Tailed Beast speaks volumes. I hope part 3 goes back to a part 1 vibe and not have every single plot revolve around the evolution of Sharingan and the Uchihas. I'm still angry that Rinnengan is a evolved Sharingan.

In part two, there were only a few Uchiha's left, of which Madara and Sasuke were destined to be legendary because of the Sage's brother housing in them. Obito was strong because he had a hax-ability, but was fairly average aside from that, until he got the beasts in him. Than who do we have left? Itachi? Compared to Obito, he was a freak of nature, genius. Madara, Itachi and Sasuke were standout Uchiha, Obito was nothing much. It's very clear that the former three were the best the clan had to offer in ages.

If you think that the Rinnegan is only an evolution of the Sharingan, than you're wrong. You need two things to get the Rinnegan, chakra from both the younger sage (commonly found in Senju/Uzumaki) and older sage (commonly found in Uchiha (and possibly Hyuuga)). Hence why Sasuke only got his when they met the younger sage.

AND why Boruto might get it*, but no Sharingan.

*iirc, the older brother got the eye-powers, so that means that the Hyuuga are descendants of him, and considering that Naruto is an Uzumaki..

The series treated Rinnegan ultimately nothing more then a Sasuke power-up. Nothing more. What once was a unique power from Nagato/Pain just became another OP Uchiha power in the end. Ironically of all those Uchiha you named, Obito I found to be the best one. Because he wasn't perfect by birth like those other three. Madara, Itachi, and Sasuke are so perfectly bred to be elites it was almost boring. That's actually why I liked Obito before they Fakadara'd him. Part II ruined the Uchihas for me. They became the answer to everything, they became the most dominate force in the series, even being able to tame the Tailed Beast with their Sharingan. But I won't do a another rant on them.

The fillers will never end. Even though I don't watch the anime portion of Naruto, I bet it's murder for those that do. I will admit some ideas to give focus to other characters sounds cool but not everyone is interesting enough and this just looks like overkill.

Its confirmed that once Itachi Shinden Book: Light and Darkness arc ends, we will move to Kaguya Ōtsutsuki arc and about Tsunade's dream arc, well it kinda spoiled the end because there was a battle between Naruto and Sasuke and there was a happy ending with nobody from konoha dying, but i'm glad that Naruto and Sasuke had a battle when they were at their strongest because their last battle in the manga happened when they were exhausted.

The thought occurred to me that the technological advances going on in the world might contribute to that. Nobody can come close to Naruto and Sasuke in legitimate power, but with technology they can help to close the gap, or something.

I very, very much doubt he was actually dead in the beginning either way, though.

This entire manga is basically a flashback with an older Boruto telling his story to the readers and how he came to the moment were he is fighting Kawaki. The actually mystery that lead to that point is what will make this sequel worth reading.

Huh? I'm only going off the manga and not the movie, but he didn't master it yet. He just barely pulled off a Rasengan (and fell *** over head into creating Vanishing Rasengan), but the perfected one he showed Sasuke later was through a TM.

I had no problem with Asuma and Kurenai either but otherwise, this. The only benefit Sakura had was that Naruto had a long-standing, established (but never explored) crush on her, but her doing a heel-face turn and reciprocating would have been no less forced than anything else.

Romance simply wasn't a central or even remotely significant part of the story, and was only made so at the end to set the stage for Boruto et al.

Expect at least 4 months of flashbacks for the Naruto vs Sasuke fight.

Maybe more months of missions they never went on filler

So Naruto found out about Boruto's jutsu mechanism, which I found surprising cuz I didn't think Naruto was that vigilant before now ha ha. Too bad this Chunin Exam is really rushed and we're not seeing each fight. ^^
