Huh thought this was coming out next week...honestly just forgot about it...anyways.
Summary time. The Gift. OK. Naruto meets Nail this chapter unlikely he will kill him on the spot, but a man can dream can't he?
Well the Picture worth a thousand words so I'm going to show you the cover page:
The art has improve vastly since the start of the manga...which was over two years ago. But Naruto still looks off for some reason. Also they changed time-slots; again. Is it going to be every other month now or will they ever get a permanent time slot? Also Super Popular? The Manga volume barely sells 125K in its first week.
OK it opens up with kids in... IV Bags? That's Kara's experiment pods? This is a flashback where the boss of Kara put Nail into one of these bags to turn him into a Human weapon. The reason the guy is doing this is to make Nail his son, talks about filling him so he won't be empty anymore, and that probably where Kara got its name.
Nail wakes up in a Hospital with Naruto, Shikamaru, and Konohamaru watching over him. He tries to escape, but Shikarmu stops him with a shadow bind. Naruto starts talking to him, and neither he nor Nail think he fits the the role of hokage (of course jokingly from Naruto.) Nice to see the character that people spent 15 years reading about him trying to become something he completely fails at...Then again SP did abandon that so his goal would be Hinata's husband which he also fails at. Shikamaru warns Naruto that it dangerous to keep Nail here, but Naruto brushes him off. Then when he points out Naruto who is the hokage has more important things to do then be someone babysitter. Naruto starts talking about his past such as; he is a jinchuuriki, everyone hated him, and the Third protected everyone from Naruto...wait. What? Oh he must have been tasked.
OK. How often do these kittening 5 kages meet now a days? It feels that Nail was only out for a few hours, unless for some reason those three decided to spend days by his bed side till he woke up. Yet they are all there to hear sleazy inventor explain what's going on with Nail's body. He must be the new genius that explains everything since you figure that they would also have a medical ninja there that does an analysis on his body. I'll skip it, and you can go on a wiki or something to look it up if you want to. But they shouldn't physically be their that fast, if for nothing else because they have their own village to run. I remember in Naruto they did have the ability to have video conference calls -the feudal lords did it to approve of the war- they should be using that instead of being their physically this is just silly. Oh look Naruto finally uses the shadow clone to do his job... about 4 years of people saying this for them to finally use it. The Mizukage asked if Naruto should be wasting his time keeping an eye on the boy. Gaara also goes on about that he was a container, and all of them supports Naruto keeping an eye on Nail. They also bring up that Bolt, and Nail have the same tattoo. I wonder if Naruto bother to discuss this with people that live in the village?
Wait, he is actually taking him home...I honestly hope that idiot from redit wasn't right, god that would be stupid even from this series. Yikes Hinata looks awful..right Ikemoto hasn't been force to draw her constantly enough for him to have been improve like he has with Naruto. They talk. Nail tries to escape again, and this time Naruto activates the chakra form to intimidate him...I miss the older version. Wait he has plus eyes...does he have the sage mode going on at the same time? He doesn't have the marking around his eyes?
Boruto comes home, and when he is about to sit down he notices that the daughter's flower vase which was a birthday gift to hinata is smashed. This sets Bolt off. Yada yada. They introduce themselves to each other, and they give each other the nicknames that fanfic user will be using if people make fanfic for Boruto. kittenhead, and freeloader. Dear god what is with the daughter's face?!
And so the new rivalry starts over a smashed flower vase.
Next one 9/22.
Eh. The chapter was average.
