Makes sense, though I hope no boruto characters

 

I don't think any Boruto stuff will be present because Naruto is showing in the Part 1 era on the cover.

The Hinata heartbroken bit, that can be solved easily: have Naruto being honest with her in a private conversation, he is not interested in her romantically. It can benefit her to move on and find someone to be with her. She was never important in the first place. It was her fans (and some inside help) that were pushing her which resulted on how the franchise ended up now.

Just don't watch it, and it'll quickly die off like Cowboy Bebop and the Titans.  One of the "virtues" of Netflix these days is that they are rather trigger-happy with cancellation if the audience reception is poor after the initial season. Especially for LA adaptations for anime and comics.

 

Well, it didn't stop me with the One Piece live-action series. Shockingly, I didn't care for the franchise back in the day, even during the 4Kids era, but watching it now, it is really good.

Live-action is currently on the works... oh boy.

Can't say one piece isn't huge anymore, that's for sure. Which was always one of the arguments you heard from naruto fans

 

That argument was only for the US because of how One Piece was handled through 4Kids before moving to Funimation. I can say its popularity skyrocketed thanks to online streaming and recently, the live-action series on Netflix.

I didn't realize Arise is getting an DLC continuation! Can't wait for it!

Recently (well, a couple of years ago), I started to watch The Witcher. I stopped for a moment as I recommended it to my mother, so we both got into it.

 

Geralt x Yennefer was so freaking obvious! Lots of banter, great chemistry, even during Yen's "betrayal" so she can get her magic back, they were meant for each other. I especially like them being foster parents to Cirilla. 

 

A shame that Henry Cavill left the series though. I'm not sure if Liam Hemsworth can keep up as Geralt for Season 4.

The only reason why many people believed Sasuke was Masashi's alter ego because of the damn screen time he hogged up for majority of the story. Remember I stated back then that because of Sasuke's screen time about the Uchihas, there wasn't a balance and it made Naruto a bit more inferior, which led to the jokes and memes that the franchise should be named "Sasuke". It was that reason I stated someone on his writing team or editor (if they weren't on Hinata lust mode) should had suggested to make a Sasuke spin-off so Naruto, Sakura (especially her) and Kakashi would've gain more screen time on the main franchise while Sasuke get his in his spin-off until Masashi decides to bring him back for the major fights. That would've guarantee money and income.

I'm still confused as to how NaruHina parrellels MinaKushi. Hinata is NOTHING like Minato at all. 

 

I don't know why they used Hinata into the equation. Obviously we knew Kushina = Sakura with a bit of Naruto in her, but now we're seeing Minato in his younger years more like his son in terms of weirdness (his long naming for example) and we knew Naruto has that quality. Hinata doesn't even fit into anything at all!

Is Ikemoto trying to make Sarada a fashion model?  :roll:

Wow, color me surprise. Minato's story was on point. Masashi, you had one job. Where was this writing during the end of Naruto?!

You see, THAT was a true Naruto story! Everything flowed well, no nonsense whatsoever. Everything and everyone was correct in terms of character. 

 

However, I see how Naruto got some of his "lameness" from Minato, with the weird long name for the Rasengan! Like father, like son. 

 

Although:

A bit of a shocker of cameos, so watching Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, I noticed a certain trio appeared on one screen:

If he wants to continue the franchise, he can always rely on his team that does the spin-offs, i.e. Team-Up Missions. Horikoshi-sensei can do the writing/supervisor role.
