You what gets me if Kishi wanted to add aliens, then he should have done so way back in part one with Team 7 meeting one who been around longer than Kaguya, but is a lot like the Doctor either the 10th 11th or 12th doctor.

Thru that true that. :smile: That WOULD BE foreshadowing at least, but nope foreshadowing is far too high a level of writing technique for Kishi!!! :zaru:  :lmao:

They're not jumping into the Boruto movie immediately after the Genin Exams from what I've looked up, but here it is:

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 36 – The Graduation Exam Begins!
    At last, the graduation exams have begun. After the first exam has finished, Boruto and his friends take part in a practical abilities exam. This exam involves a bell taking test, with the Sixth Hokage, Kakashi Hatake, and the Academy’s other teachers as opponents.
  • December 13, 2017
    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 37 – A Shinobi’s Resolve
    Boruto was the first to challenge the graduation exam’s proctor Kakashi, after being the first to arrive at his location, however, he is easily held down. Furthermore, Kakashi criticized not only Boruto himself, but also all his classmates, leading Boruto to become extremely frustrated. Boruto’s classmates arrive, and manage to free Boruto through a combined effort, allowing him to escape from Kakashi. Boruto is uncharacteristically depressed, so his classmates do their best to restore his spirits. Finding himself again, Boruto proposes a strategy to everyone.

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 38 – Formation, Three Man Cells…?
    Boruto and his friends are successful in becoming apprentice ninja, ‘Genin’, their first step. Firstly, they must form their basic teams to carry out missions in, a three man cell. Boruto expected to group up with his close friend Shikadai; however, Shikadai is forming a cell with Inojin and Chocho, following in their parents’ footsteps of the ‘Inoshikacho’ trio. Boruto then becomes grouped with Sarada and Mitsuki…

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 39 – The Path Illuminated by the Full Moon
    Mitsuki was originally from another village, the Village of the Hidden Sound. But since meeting with Boruto and the others, Mitsuki has decided that he will now remain at the Village of the Hidden Leaf and become a ninja. In the past, Mitsuki has had his memory taken away from him, and had lost his identity, along with what he wants to achieve in life, only to awaken in an unfamiliar laboratory. The mystery that surrounds Mitsuki, and the plethora of thoughts that surround him, has now cleared up for him.

    NO EPISODE

 

 

So I'm guessing sometime next year is they're gonna tackle the movie stuff again either I'm guessing middle of January or February-April at the latest.

 

There won't be an episode on my birthday thank God.

As I said, this is desperation at its finest.  They are adapting the movie for material because they are clawing at the walls for ideas and a means to stall.  Hell, for all we know, they're probably attempt to retcon away the examples of Hinata's complacency and incompetence as a parent.

I also think it because they just don't have the same creative minds working on Boruto that they had with Naruto. I think the best of the company have been moved over to work on Black Clover due to needing that show to succeeded. Leaving only a director that is just suppose to see how long he can hold the series together, a few people that were transferred over to Black Clover, and Hinata fanatics.

 

Look at the arcs in Boruto so far:

The academy arc; an introductory arc that was part slice of life part super natural mystery investigation that had a clone of Hinata plan to summon a clone of Kurama to attack the village that can only be stop by Bolt's super special on of a kind eye power.

The gaiden; was to rewrite it in order to appease the Domestic SS fans by shifting the focus from Salad to defending SS.

The field trip arc; trying to get people to watch it by using their nostogal for the wave arc, and the seven swordmen in genral

The genin arc; their numbers are poor so even more nostalgia and they are desperate enough to bring up NS to support BS.

 

What they will do with the chunin exam is repeat what they did with the gaiden.

I, for one, cannot wait to see what kind of retconned scenes are gonna put instead of the ones that make Naruto looks like a terrible father (I.E: "Himawari's Birthday) . 

It's gonna be soo baad, at least it will serve for a good laugh.

Even I can't imagine how much they are going to twist what happened in the movie so nH doesn't have any negative traits yet somehow. Bolt is still somehow justified in his anger with his dad.

 

Am I the only one who thinks it's weird people try to push Hinata as uber-powerful when Boruto is already at her level before leaving the academy?

*Some BS that since he is Hinata's child he must have inherited her sage power in the womb*

 

My question is how is Burrito even at the level he is? Naruto was a loud mouthed dummy, Hinata is timid and not at all battle orientated imo. It doesn't seem like Naruto took the time to teach Burruto anything, and I have a hard time believing Hinata did any of that stuff with him. So where did he suddenly get these BS innate skills from?

You would THINK they would want to continue the "Hard work beats Genius." theme. 

To be honest even with how little he has done in the manga. His power level does come off as reasonable in it (ignoring the fight with the effeminate one.) The problem is the anime, its staff, and their refusal to make Boruto come off as weak. Kishimoto made Boruto smarter and more naturally gifted than Naruto to try and make him slightly different. The anime on the other hand since he is the son of Hinata as well as the pairing they work so hard to make happened. They don't want him to be seen as weak and they want everyone to think he is awesome.

 

Isn't that suppose to be good ?? The more they did that the more they driven away what's left of their fanbase.

That's just my natural reaction to hearing their rehashing the chunin exams again after that ten month waste of time. Other then that, the thing is Boruto's chunin exam is honestly not that interesting, nor is him learning from Sasuke.

 

Indeed, because I doubt that even the NH/SS zombies  want to watch a lower-budget rehash of a plot that they've already seen.

 

And I personally think that this ploy to re-introduce the Boruto Movie's plot into the anime is going to be murder the show's ratings, especially when you consider the competition it's up against next year: Fairy Tail S8, Boku no Hero Academia S3, Attack on Titan S3, Hoshin Engi,  A Certain Magical Index S3,  Black Clover S2, Nanatsu no Taizai S2 (plus its movie), SAO S3 and its spin-off: SAO Gun Gale Alternative,  Overlord S2,  Fate/Extra: Encore and F/SN Heaven's Feel movies, just to name off the top of my head.  .

I actually wonder if many them even saw the Boruto movie or even read the manga? Other then the game this may be first time some of the american fans have seen Bolt chunin exams.

 

You what gets me if Kishi wanted to add aliens, then he should have done so way back in part one with Team 7 meeting one who been around longer than Kaguya, but is a lot like the Doctor either the 10th 11th or 12th doctor.

He was getting bored of Ninjas by the end and wanted to move on to Sci-fi. From what I recall it was just implied that kaguya was originally just possibly a woman from another land, and most of her power came from eating the Chakra Tree's fruit. Eventually their were some implications that it was change that she from another world by the end. Then one of her decedent clan's live on the moon. Then by Boruto she just became part of an other-dimensional race.

An an even better question is; HOW ARE THEY EVEN RELEVANT to the plot. Are they relevant to the plot? I don't think so, I don't recall them ever doing anything. I don't remember Hamura bring of anything of importance other than to make the Hyuga connected to Hagaromo therefore destroying all uniqueness of all three eye power bloodlines by saying they are all #$%&ing branch offs of each other. Heck Hamura was never even mentioned by ANYONE EXCEPT Hagaromo so even with that information thrown in, none of that crap makes any sense. Actually that really is where Naruto started going down hill. Nothing was unique anymore, and anything that made something in the story special ( be it a technique, bloodline or bloodline inherent ability) was blasted down by idiotic plot contrivances that was Kishi's FAILED attempt at a deep and intricate story and instead made the whole series look like an unproductive, nonsensical, not thought out watered down kitten

They are basically just a villain just for the sake of having a villain.  It's basically is just "Well, what kind of threat would be big enough to cause problems and not just have Naruto or Sasuke one shot them. I know, have Kaguya's genetic offspring be an evil clan that are almost as powerful as she is, but have them be weak enough to be dealt with by a small boy."

They made Boruto a prodigy because he needed to be powerful enough to fight off the Kaguya clones all the while making Sasuke and Naruto weak enough so they just don't one shot them and Boruto can be relevant. It is backwords ass logic. It doesn't make sense.

Bloodlines, prophecy, reincarnation.

That's all you need to know.

Fandom love hyuga. That because of neji and not Hinata.
Hyuga is a fodder.

And burito doesn't even have byakugan. Thus only make them even more fodder when burito is their last chance to become relevant.

I will not surprise if sp perform an asspull to hyuga clan comparable to what kishi did to uchiha.

`

Less we forget the great Uzumaki Asspull, where it turns out Naruto is a survivor of a clan that

 

1) Are the only people who can have Kurama sealed in them due to their unique chakra

2) Have their own bloodline limit (that Naruto never gets)

3) Are tied to the founding of Konoha, with Tsunade's Grandma being an Uzumaki. The spirals on Konoha-nin apparel are in respect to the Uzumaki clan

4) Were wiped out because they were OP PLZ NERF

 

Throwing all the lessons about how hard work prevails out the window and raising the question of how Naruto never knew about some of this. You think point 3 would be brought up in school, or with points 2 & 4 people would have high hopes about Naruto's potential.

I was actually referencing a quote from Uno the movie.

 

But yeah, it makes them money...I think...idk I haven't seen this story as heavily merchandise as Naruto was. Also is done once a month, instead of ounce a week.

Exactly. I don't mind explaining this point again. From What I hear, Anime studios in Japan don't make money of of direct viewership on television. They make it through third party means such as other companies sponsoring them to advertise that companies products, selling merchandise of that anime series pr buying the DVD releases etc. IF and I mean IF noone is doing any of those things then SP is NOT making money from Boruto, and it is logical to assume they are not because like I said they pissed off A LOT of their Japanese viewers by that stunt that they pulled during he premier screening of the Last by both FALSE advertising that the movie was Team 7 focused and was to wrap up the saga conclusively when it was just  big fat NaruHina fan fiction, and also they did a no refund policy on the tickets. In fact some of our members here can attest to it since a few of them actually live in Japan and they were bringing up word by mouth comments from public and how enraged they were at the steaming pile of garbage "the Last" was and I also recall a members here travelling to Japan for a time and they brought up a photo of a Naruto commemoration booth at an anime  convention of sorts and then Naruto booth was completely empty Again, several long time members that were here since at least 2014 can back me up on this because they witnessed the members here that were actually proving the ugly truth about what happened to Naruto after "The Last" showed it's "vomiting premise" in Japanese cinemas

 


Very true 
 
btw, Nice avatar and sig man!
 
Thanks I wanted a Dechako avatar and a Black Clover Sig with Asta and Noelle in it for a while :love: since I want to advertise Black clover more and my avatar photo was "SPOILERS!!!!" :P
