That is true, although admittedly that new ending was PRETTY fan service-y regarding Mimosa and then there is the fact that he smacked into Asta chest first a few months ago in the manga. :twitch:  Sooooooo........ yeah

Plot hole: The Frog Elders/Village/Ma and Paw, and Naruto as the Child of Prophecy.

 

First off, the Child of Prophecy was utterly forgotten. Completely dropped. Sure there was something about reincarnation in the end, but it was equally about Sasuke as it was about Naruto. And it was definitely not about the Frog Elders' prophecy. They never touch on that again. This plot hole, to me, is huge. It's what the whole story was built on. Having a shared ending with Sasuke being equal just ruins Naruto's whole hero's journey. The story was presented as being about Naruto as the lone savior, but it wasn't that way in the end. 

 

And second, what about the Frog summons, Kakashi's dog summons, Sasuke's cat, snake or hawk summons, etc. None of that is ever touched on again. Ma and Paw frog went back to their frog village to just be forgotten about, I suppose, because at no point does Naruto ever mention taking a future student there and passing on his Frog contract, like Jiraiya did with him. 

 

Not to mention this TRIVIALIZES any thing that we knew about Naruto for in the beginning and as such it demolishes any reason and sympathy we had for rooting for him. Naruto is supposed to be thi orphan that was hated for carrying a demon that nearly obliterated his home and he was hated for it and he doesn't even know why, but NOW not only is he from a special clan that actually has been housing that demon in their bodies generations before him but he is a "jesus figure" that is suppose to bring world peace? That only not makes being Hokage seem incredibly trivial and irrelevant now, but also with how this series treats supposed "secret information" as EVERYONE KNOWS IT now you would think that someone would know of Naruto's heritage and that it would be brought up sooner,

Serious question but is the original cast eve doing the voices of the original characters in the Boruto dub? i.e. Maile Flanagan doing "Nardo" etc. etc.
