And by the way i saw this in tumblr :
The one who posted this said : "Mitsuki is completely obsolete now".
To be entirely honest, if you read the manga Cups only exist to give exposition. It is the anime that tried selling that he and Bolt were close friends. Going off even the manga adaptation of the movie. Bolt wasn't even close to his teammates, care about them, or for that matter even try to be friendly with them before the chunin exam because they notice a change of attitude when he was around his family when compared to when he was with them; ie nice, polite, friendly, happy, smiles, concerned with how they are doing, and so on. Salad called him basically a lazy spoiled brat to her father when he started training with him, and Cups seemed more her friend then Bolt's.
But again its the anime trying to make something that isn't supported by the source material, and we all know how that turns out when they do that.
Edit: I just remember kishi one shot for Cups and how Bolt is suppose to fill him. So, maybe the anime taking it from that, but again the clowns aren't interested in Kishi's characters. They want to do their own stories with their own characters. Which means Cups is irrelevant while Nail is Bolt's best friend/Bond-Brother.
Have they even started bonding for Bolt to even call Nail that? or is it the whole "Tell, don't show" dynamic that Naruto and Sasuke were LIVING off of, even now?
Mentioned it in last summary. Personally, no, I don't think they really done enough to warrant it, but I guess this is the one time they are actually going to speed something up in that manga.
Has a more diverse cast...which they rarely use.
Wasn't slow...While I agree, part of the problem with Naruto was the fact that kishi was rushed out of setting up the story early by his editor. Then again I don't recall any other manga wasting ten months on recap and another five on a prologue.
Has suspense at every turn...
Has unrivaled action sequences...ahahahaha. Pretty sure any of us can find better.
Has real villains...What they don't count Molding Cannibal, Cyborg Ao, more of Kaguya's clan or the knock of Akatsuki?
Naruto had a noble goal...which he abandon in the end because the fanbase care more about who he impregnated.
Naruto was on his own..wait wasn't Hinata always with him? They even use images from the last for this number's image. Beyond that it could be said this made Naruto's negative qualities more understandable therefor tolerable then his spoiled kitten of a son.
Naruto wasn't a "soft" series...its average for shounen to be honest in terms of tone...also it lost a lot of it edge once kishi became a dad.
Naruto worked hard for what he had... but in the end was just given the position of hokage and his wife.
Naruto started off weak...part of that is because kishi wanted Bolt to be different from his father, but mostly it was because SP wouldn't allow Hinata's son can be anything but perfect.
