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:

000.jpg

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.

This art style is hot garbage. Why is it that there are like 50 different people who can copy Kishi almost flawlessly in fanworks but this guy makes it kittening hideous?

Passion vs forced to do it.

Which I've told you - time and time again - is dangerous! There will never be consensus, son, among those you have helped to ascend. They will all differ in their views of what it means to be free. The peace you so desperately seek does not exist.
 
These men are united now by a common cause. But when this battle is finished they will fall to fighting amongst themselves about how best to ensure control. In time it will lead to war. You will see.

Ikemoto is still trying that realistic style, and it still doesn't work for most of the old/kishimoto created characters.

 

This still does not feel like a chapter worth waiting a month for (though to be honest with all the delays it is quickly turning into a six week wait on average; which is even worse.) It feels like it maybe worth two chapters of a weekly manga if you added more to it. The flash back and the hospital could be one chapter that ends with him meeting the kages, and then another where Naruto both meet with the kages(really should be members of the village instead) then takes him home to meet the family.

Do I need to copy paste the manga for people to talking about the story instead of just complaining about the cover? Are my Summaries that bad that no one knows the plot? What little there is?

It's not you. It's the fact that we can tell from your summaries that Boruto is hot garbage.

...Technically, no. But after the first fifteen months of a prologue, this slow pacing, boring generic story, and the fact they already spoiled what's going to happen in the first chapter. It's still to good a dig to drop...also I think the Never Ending Prologue sounds better then Naruto Next Generation or what ever the official title is.

Your summaries are good. People just don't really know about it. Because they aren't doing the anti fan thing where you hate on something all the time but then read/watch it anyway. This franchise isn't good enough to deserve even that anymore.

What's there to talk about in terms of the plot? No one here is invested in it, with time OR Money :th_yeah: :zaru:

 

All "Nail" is is a darker, edgier Sasuke ripoff, and Ikemoto can't even disguise the fact that he is a Sasuke ripoff :no:  :laughcry:

Money? I have a hard time believing anyone is supporting this over here even if they do like it. That's why it's ridiculous that they killed the whole story to make this happen.

 

To be honest, it's probably a good thing they did. Who here would actually want to see NS done using THIS art style?

Nah, that Ikemoto guy won't be even touching the franchise besides assistant work had NS happened. That would be purely Masashi's art style.

Either the sequel wouldn't have happen because SP (especially the animators) would only want to do it if nH was the pairing, or the guy that does those Naruto parody manga...Taira Kenji may have taken over instead. Since he clearly likes NS, and can draw like Kishimoto more then Ikemoto. Likely if they decided they needed a light novelist they would have been able to get the guy that did the gusty ninja, blood prison, and kakashi light novels. Likely SJ asked the novelists if they wanted to be the writer of Boruto with that guy being first, most probably turned it down seeing the collapse that was happening; while Kodachi saw it as his big break.

 

Actually that probably would have been good a decent writer, and Kenji can draw Kishi-like and has a sense of humor.

 

Most people aren't reading the manga. I don't seem many paying for it. The ones that are reading seem to be in denial or convincing themselves that it will get better; eventually. Most people that like Boruto are fans of the anime, and love the latest arc...which was just the movie that came out three years ago apparently none of them watched.

 

The problem is for them is that now that the anime is past the chunin exam they can now gain on the manga story. Before they pretty much had free reign to do what they want, and strong arm the manga staff into allowing it. But now? They are still bound by the fact they are an adaptation of the manga, and I hope you all have notice this; the manga story has been very linear & consecutive . Other then before, and after the card arc there has been no break to put in filler arcs. The Ao arc flows immediately into the Kawaki arc where we are now. If they ever start an arc while it is on going they will quick breeze through it, and catch up to the manga with no gaps to put any filler. Also with how slow the manga is they are going to be doing a lot of filler no matter what unless something changes in the manga's pacing.

My point. Many if not all are not interested in even reading this trash, and no one sure as hell is going to be paying for it. Well fan that was actually let down by chapter 699 and 700 and are actually insulted by Kishi or Shueidsha, or Sp's "damage control" comments

There's a parody manga that pushes NS?

I finally got to read the chapter and the first question that popped into my head was, do the other kage just live in konoha now? Why the hell are they always conveniently present everytime naruto wants a meeting? Don't they have their own villages to rule over?

And i love how naruto was willing to be more of a father to some strange, shady kid instead of his own son.

Also, don't you guys think that sakura shouldve been the one diagnosing and studying kawaki? Being a medic nin is her whole thing afterall. Doesn't she run the hospital or something? Every chapter is stranger, i swear.

As for art, i say ikemoto is drawing naruto better but only naruto. Everyone else still looks horrible. XD
