It's been a disaster lol.

At first we were getting Infinite Tsukiyomi fillers (5-6 months), which were expected (but were also not very good).

Then we got an anime adaption of the Itachi novels in which they altered the source material to try and keep it PG. (1 month 1/2)

Then we got canon for like 2-3 episodes, then we go to some back story for Kaguya. Then Hagoromo and his brother's "back story"

Back to canon for like 2 episodes.

Then Asura and his brother's "back story".

Then the Kakashi face reveal got animated.

Now we're back in the Kaguya fight.

Jesus Christ. Either they don't care anymore, or they are stalling for time to make a Boruto anime. Wouldn't surprise if they made even more fillers after the final Naruto vs Sasuke battle, although that would be cool, bridging the gap to The Last Movie and Boruto Movie. Kind of like what Dragon Ball Super did.

Have there been any news of an adaption for "The Seventh Hokage And The Scarlet Spring"? That could be a movie in itself.

Hee hee yea I don't quite get why Naruto considered Obito to be a cool guy when he was responsible for so many deaths, even if some happened indirectly. I didn't like how Obito's sins were just forgiven so easily by the end of the manga. ^^;

So that's 2 episodes of Kaguya. I'm surprised they're not taking a whole episode for the Hokage's to leave, especially for the Minato-Naruto angle. I was looking forward to that one actually.

The 50 episodes bit was a joke. But they will drag the hell out of it regardless.

Okay 50 episodes for a single conclusion battle are way to much even with fillers. They've milked out the climax with enough fillers. Kaguya should fall in the next few episodes. I bet there'll be 5-7 flashback episodes about Naruto's and Sasuke's past. They should end Shippuden at episode 500 at the latest.

The latest episode was well paced and now we're left with one episode before the final battle begins.
and i guess there will be flashbacks of Naruto and Sasuke's first battle in the Valley of the End since there are scenes in the opening that imply it.

Since there will be 2-3 chapters before the retelling of Boruto: Naruto the Movie is over i guess maybe something like this happen when the retelling is over

the Boruto movie ends with Boruto wondering who Orchimaru is so maybe he went the Sasuke way and he met Orchimaru and that's how things turned out in chapter 1 when we see Boruto and Kawai.

When i read the manga i didnt realize Naruto's reply about Kushina asking him to find someone like her which was meant for Sakura when he talked to Minato about it, but when i watched the episode i finally realized.
Naruto stuttered, which means he realize that Sakura still has feelings for Sasuke and he may not be able to end up with her which was what happened and that's why he ended up with Hinata and besides, Naruto had a crush on Sakura and he never really loved her and crush and love are two different things.

Please I hope not. They could have skipped the chunin and tsukyomi filler we really didn't need, end the canon stuff months ago, then stretch of the novels.There isn't enough material for a weekly series for Boruto(a monthly series) unless you want filler and hardly anything else.

True, but honestly after the way the first Naruto anime series had like a year and a half of non-stop filler, I wouldn't be surprised if we eventually get a Boruto anime series that's practically all filler too. Heck even the plot of Shippuden has been filler like a third of the time during its run. ^^;

IS it even filler when they've finished the canon stuff? That last episode was chapter 699 stuff and beside the epilogue the rest is basically Boruto. I do like that they cleared up a few things like Naruto studying to become Hokage, although if they're killing time they might have put some time into the last minute pairings and Sasuke finding a way to make up for his many crimes.


And to this day I still don't like the idea of Sasuke being pardoned. Now obviously they couldn't have left him in jail because they needed a sequel, but I feel like he should served a little more time than that.


It kind of works better if you think of Sasuke's journey to find more about Kaguya and explore as a self-imposed exile until he's ready to return. But he definitely should have had a more difficult atonement and Sakura in particular let him off too easy.

It makes little sense to jump from Genin to Kage (Garara was a special case) but it's what came out of Kishi's mouth himself.

Hmmm I guess technically it's not filler, but from my standpoint the new episodes aren't even necessary cuz all the things that'll occur from now on are just a way of milking the anime. And with no canon material left to cover, the anime will just make up its own subplots, which doesn't sound too good to me since that has been one of Shippuden's weak points in my view. :[

I finally watched The Last and the movie was nice and here's a few points i want to say about the movie:
1.I didnt like the idea of Naruto magically falling in love in Hinata and his relationship with her was developed in a movie that lasts about two hours, but at least it was explained in the movie and i also remember someone here pointed it out:during the two years time skip between chapter 699 and the movie, Naruto confessed his feelings to Sakura, but she rejected him because she still loved Sasuke and there wasnt much time to start the whole thing between Naruto and Hinata.
2.The movie showed a lot of moments of Naruto and Hinata and even added two more, but it didnt show two important moment with one being Naruto shocked by Neji's death and slapped by Hinata and then he takes her hand and thanks her for always being by his side and the second one being Hinata's Infinite Tsukuyomi dream.
3.Sakura and Hanabi tell Hinata to confess her feelings to Naruto, but she already did that when Naruto was captured by Pain, but i guess nobody know about that except for Hinata and Naruto.
4.I liked the fact Sai took part of the mission and got time screen in the movie because he's one of my favorites characters.

http://www.saiyanisland.com/2016/12/naruto-shippuden-shikamaru-leaf-village-stories-dated/

Yeah, the anime and especially the movies not written by Kishimoto killed off villains a lot more casually than the manga. There's a list of deaths on the wiki and the only people in the manga who Naruto directly killed were Kakuzu (and even then Kakashi had to put him out of his misery) and Yura, the guy who Itachi took over, (which is darkly hilarious because he was a good and loyal shinobi who worked for Konoha's closest ally). Even Sasuke has an asterisk by most of his arguable kills.

On the other hand, In the anime Naruto killed off Aoi Rokusho and Shura pretty casually. And in the movies NAruto basically personally killed all the villains except Shinno who basically got himself killed and Moryo who was a demon and Menma which was part of the movie that made no sense. Most of the movies Kishi didn't write had Naruto just straight up kill a human character at the end. Although to be fair, in Blood Prison and The Will of Fire (The only good Naruto movies IMO) the villain's deaths were at least given a little pathos.

These wedding present episodes have been rather nice and the writers and animators clearly are having some fun with it(Orochimaru randomly in background being spied on by Yamato, Leafy the mascot, the entire Team Guy episode...).

Guess the actual wedding may be the finale of the series and leads to Boruto. Which the manga is now getting into new content. Don't recall the god mark in the film, so I guess that's something that will be focused on throughout and may have been why Boruto and that other guy in the first page of the first chapter were heavily tattooed, killed a bunch of gods, which I guess a lot of Otsutsuki people are going to be coming in.

Hoping Zetsu makes his return.

I imagine he or someone of similar role(I would prefer the latter because that guy was jusy annoying) will come into play based on the first chapter with that guy saying the age of ninja is over.

I'm definitely assuming Kawaki isn't a ninja per se; though with that said, he also has the same markings Boruto will grow to have. Given the most recent chapter, I'm guessing that means he'll also be defeating a God at some point (assuming the marking Boruto now has is a direct result of that).

Either way, ninja vs. technology is definitely going to be a central theme, if that opening scene is any indication. And I wouldn't be surprised if Katasuke has a role to play in that.

So Boruto episode 2 came out today.

Iwabe vs Boruto was actually a pretty good fight for those early days. Not one of those mere seconds battle, but it felt more like Naruto vs Kiba (the arena also was pretty similiar to the Chunin exam indoor arena ). Also all the characters including Inojin (<3), Denki and the girls were interesting.

Sumire is also Hinata 2.0, but not that shy. She even shows a slight crush on Boruto. If she becomes a real character in the manga, then I smell another shipping war.

Is there a boruto thread? Or is this like the DB thread?

After watching the first 2 episodes and not reading the manga, i'm excited for boruto. Shippuden's filler got so bad to me that i stopped watching the anime altogether and finished the manga from where i was in the anime and read that special boruto colored issue. Here's my first impressions on boruto:

Before anything, loved seeing the uzumaki family in the opening. I was a big fan of naruhina and seeing the 4 in their home was so heartwarming. The flashforward was, much like shippuden's, interesting and exciting and unlike shippuden's, it has world building to do until we get there. I was expecting sarada to be prominently featured in these couple episodes but they are actually building the "tech kid" (i'll get the other's names eventually). Hopefully we'll see him also fighting but i'm not seeing it for now. I like ino and sai's son and metal lee is the best name of the history of naruto. Looking forward to what kishimoto can do with the world he built.

Question, is the class rep daughter of a naruto character? i would say she's anko's kid but anko's too old (and man did she left herself go). Another possibility is that she's ino and sai's kid as well but purple hair wouldn't be spontaneous would it?

It's all original content for the anime, which builds up characters until the start of the Chunin exams (which is also the start of the manga). Pretty much a prequel right now as the "introduction" arc for what comes later in the manga.

Characters like Iwabe, Denki, and Sumire are not in Boruto the movie at all. It is likely though that if they adapt the movie they will add these characters. It goes back to what I was talking about, they want the anime to be the full package so we should be expecting them to adapt the movie with the characters added in the anime and the changes the manga writer brought.

UltimateNinja
29th June 2017, 10:03 PM
It wouldn't even make sense for them to remove the new characters after fifteen episodes already. Sumire dying or something else would also be a bad decision. The cast without the new characters was already to small for a "next generation" with seven and Metal Lee also had a team with no names in the movie. Together with the new characters, we have twelve Konoha main characters, the exact same as Naruto. Even Sumire dying would be a bad decision, not only it would create a hole for the team building. it would also make all the other new characters like Iwabe, Denki, Wasabi and Namida look more like some "why they even exist" characters, especially the later two.

I predict for them to rewrite the movie with adding all the new characters (and expanding those second long fights) and later on adding those characters in the manga. It's probably because they started with the movie already in the manga that they're doing this "introduction" arc to introduce all (old+new) characters.

I still expect the worst.

The shipping war officially started.

Sumire survived and still appears in the next episode. The ending also included all the important academy students including Iwabe,Sumire,Denki,Namida and Wasabi. Since Gaiden starts soon, it's probably more or less safe now that they're indeed the next Konoha twelve.

Strong episode today. Animation top, fighting top, emotions top and a hell of a shipping episode. I like Sumire more than Sarada now (so much potential), so I like the direction they're going.

If there's no crap happening in the next episode, then this arc gets a 8.5/10. The last five-six episodes really skyrocked my my impression.

The ending was a little strange to me. The music was great but what they chose to show was just the rehash of this arc. Will we see this ending's animation throughout the 2nd arc or will this just be a one off and next episode we get to the normal ED?

She's my favourite ninja from Boruto's team, tho not cuz of her heritage. I got sick of the Sharingan in Naruto Shippuden honestly ha ha, so I'm not looking forward to how her Sharingan will inevitably be overly-glorified at some point.

Now that's and ending. With sarada's story the ED has way much more impact. Can't wait for that to come. Also i'm glad the class rep stayed.

Is it just me or was there a kind of death note vibe from the end of this episode? Like the shinigami were talking about the world of the living and it's rules. I loved that.

I was glad that Boruto combined his lightning nature into his shuriken in the new chapter cuz it at least made him seem slightly different from his dad. The teamwork shown between him and Tentou was decent as well even if it was a small thing.

Manga Chapter 14:


-Shojoji already being down is pretty akward. But maybe there's another fight
-Boruto's lightning shuriken was cool
-Tentou seems to be a neat character
-It seems like Boruto is more confident here than in the movie.


Anime episode 15


-Team building was hinted here. Ino-Shika-Cho and Boruto's team was obvious. More and more hints for Metal to have Iwabe&Denki in the team and the three girls building one team.
-Sumire staying (thanks god) and that last scene with her was heartwarming
-Shino getting once more some screentime.
-NaruSasu scene was good
-Toneri confirming Boruto's eye to be the named the "Jougan".
-The Momoshiki&Kinshiki scene was beatifully animated and it was really impressing. Also it just felt like the debut scene of Vegeta&Nappa in DBZ so much.
-Gaiden staff coming soon. Prefered the first version of the ending.

Good ending to the arc and the arc in generell was actually quite good compared to what we got in the second half of Shippuuden.

Shojoji's (is that the fat dude's name?) Fuuton jutsu was kinda cool, but I swear Boruto's clone spam and Rasengan makes him way too much like his dad...

I thought that his special shuriken jutsu was actually meant to showcase how Boruto isn't simply a copy of his dad. Granted, he's using Shadow Clones which was Naruto's main jutsu, but at least Boruto's capable of using his own original strategies too.

just so im clear, i lost 90% of my interest in the Naruto series quite a while ago. i really started waning halfway tru the great ninja war in shipuden anime where the character bloat got really bad. im not gonna go to far to explain the endless and consecutive fillers they put in..... im not trying to bash or insult the series but had they learned anything from the Naruto series or is it the same formula as the previous series? i guess they're still filler crazy as before? the fillers really got to me in the series quite a bit.

i made it to ep 378 in the shipuden anime many months ago and havent gotten back to it. its unclear if i'll ever complete the shipuden anime but thats not the big point here. i might one day see the last non-filler eps in the series if im bored enough to bother doing so. i doubt i'll ever look into boruto but im just curious if they changed up the formula up a bit.

The closest comparison you have with Boruto in regards to the rest of the series is that it's reminiscent of a lot of part 1. There's a large focus on the kids at school and we will eventually shift to the normal ninja team stuff. The anime doesn't really have filler because everything in the anime is completely new, there is no material that has been adapted from something else until the upcoming Gaiden arc.

I became pretty jaded on Naruto but Boruto really brought me back for the record.

thanks, i know the new manga is still in its early times so it shouldnt have too many fillers. the first few seasons of Naruto were pretty damn good until the fillers started coming in.

at this point i cant fathom jumping into the new ninja anime as i dont have the time. i also just dont want to be led on like the previous series where no patience for the manga side led to catch up. atleast i only have 51 more eps of shipuden to see (2 of them being filler). the way they handled shipuden anime was not ideal. lets just say they were salivating to put in some filler eps at every chance.

You may as well not even watch Boruto since it's technically filler. Decent filler compared to Shippuden's filler, but still filler nonetheless.

It really isn't. We just got a showcase of what Boruto's eye can do and we were given it's name yet people still thinks this is filler? The arc that is also Mitsuki's introduction to the village arc?

for the most part i dont have too many issues with fillers in other series but those series that live off it cause severe allergic reactions when i watch them. even with the boruto anime, im just not up for a ninja school anime at this point. i doubt i'll miss the series, shippuden did too much damage to its rep for me to get back into the successor series.

UltimateNinja

Watch it. It's actually good.

I don't know why the hell some are thinking it is filler, when the new characters appear in the novels, a lot of things that are relevant to the plot happens (Boruto's doujutsu, Mitsuki's debut, the important things in the last two episodes (can't tell that much without mentioning spoiler), there being plot strings which didn't appeared in the movie (like who appeared in episode 15) and them setting up some necessary changes (like Metal getting a team without those no-name characters from the movie). And especially there's I would say important development for the characters (including Boruto). And well Kishimot and Kodachi said that the anime is canon to the plot.

The first fifteen episodes are ment to introduce the characters and to build up some basics. If you call this filler arc, then Zabuza's arc is even more filler, since this arc actually have more minor things probably resulting into more plot strings later in the future. Not to mention that ALL of the new Konoha main characters are superior to Naruto's main characters in any way. May it be the depth of their characters, their power or them being more likable (well except you are really into bratty characters).

Really I would say Boruto's start is stronger than Naruto's. It's not as dark as Naruto's first fifteen episodes, but that's the only thing.

18th July 2017, 7:28 PM
its really doubtful i'll ever see boruto for the reasons previously stated in my past posts here. the way they handled shipuden really turned me off from the series, its actually a chore to even consider finishing off the last 50 non filler eps from shipudden anime. its also a series/interest exhaustion thing for me, i just want to see a decent ending to the series and move onto different anime at this point. at this point i find it enjoyable to watch series with a medium sized character pool. while those with huge list of characters are equally enjoyable in other aspects it does have its own downfalls ie bleach and the naruto series.

i just got too many other things to do ie other anime, those darn pokemon games, 10 books that i need to read and just life in general. it might turn out boruto ends up being better than previous anime but it not on my radar at this point.

The cast of the Boruto anime is its strongest point right now from my perspective cuz it gives off a feeling of freshness than Shippuden lacked. But I don't think you'd miss much in terms of action or storytelling if you skip it since those attributes are still kind of weak at this point and not everyone has the patience to see it improve.

i just saw ep 379-381 and remembered why it was such a chore to see that anime. that aside i dont mind focus on the characters but im not a fan of battle dragging on. at this point i dont know if i have the patience to wait on boruto but i did much enjoy the chunin exams. if they have a decent amount of exciting battles with a reasonable pace then id consider it.

i will criticize boruto for a bit here without even seeing the series at this point but im just going off what i saw happen in the previous series. i do know that this is a successor series and the new main cast has a bunch OP abilities the new gen has inherited from their parents. i find the combos to serve some overhype and also impede the future story as they ll need to go more over the top when push comes to shove.

it also seems like there will be a rather large cast which could cause for long battles where half the cast is just standing around for their turn at times. i dont mind 3 battles going at the same time but anymore is just too much.

these are just 2 reasons why i'll pass on the anime for the time being. i dont know at this point if these 2 situations will occur later on in the series but i'd rather pass on the anime atm and find out later on that they avoided the issues they had with the previous series.

I'm not really getting the love for Mitsuki tbh. While I like his design somewhat, most of his jutsu are a copy of Orochimaru's, which I saw enough of with Kabuto, Anko, and Sasuke. His Sage Mode design in that special chapter was lit, though.

Mrs. Oreo
20th July 2017, 1:21 AM
I can understand why Mitsuki's jutsu seem kind of unoriginal, tho then again it's not like Boruto or Sarada's known jutsu so far are that much better either ha ha. I do hope we'll see more of Mitsuki's snake Sage Mode in the future however. ^^

Episode was okay. Second half was the more interesting one since it had new content. Glad to see some Naruto&Boruto interactions. Iwabe appearing for some seconds was pretty cool and was actually the first "retcon" of the stuff happened before the anime. Hinata was boss in this episode and it felt really heartwarming at some parts.

But three episodes without best girl Sumire. It's pretty common for the series to not show important characters for months, but I want to see more of her so badly.
Glad for Gaiden to be only six episodes long.

I'm eager to see the Sarada gaiden chapters animated in the Boruto anime, although it wasn't that good of a story now that I look back. I mean Shin was an underwhelming villain and I'm also a bit upset that Suigetsu and Karin ended up working for Orochimaru instead of finding their own paths.

Yes Gaiden was crappy written mess. Thought they would expand the story more but knowing how long the arc will last, it probably won't happen.

Now waiting for some Genin arc where we see more of the anime characters.

Chapter 18:



HOLY SH*******! The best ever female character in the Narutoverse got into the manga!

Waited for this since months and now I am more than happy to see her. Even better for my dream ship in the future. Just hope she didn't gave up to be a fighting kunoichi and that research thing to be a hobby she did during the Chunin exam.

Inuzuka Akita is new waifu. I wonder if she's somehow related to Kiba since they're in the same clan.

Kotosuke actually was quite a friendly character and that bit at the end where Boruto forgives him with his reaction to that was slightly touching.

The fight was decent, even if Sarada pretty much got a free win thanks to the flash gadget.

Overall it didn't contributed to much to the plot. But I think the chapter was rather ment to finally introduce Sumire into the manga together with a new character being Akita. But the monthly release is the problem here. If this chapter was splitted into two and the manga being weekly, then everything would be fine, but now it's kinda slow.
