Well, I think that fight is nearing its end so I might as well summaries it. I do one post for each chapter since it normally some time before someone comments...even if they don't really comment of what happened in the chapter they just complain about how Boruto sucks...or Kishimoto or how dare NS not happen or asked who the two tone hair emo boy is again.
Anyways. Chapter 36: Surprise Attack. The cover page is a colored group shot of the main cast of the manga: Naruto, Bolt, Salad, Sasuke, Nail, and Cups. Why is Konohamaru their team's sensei again?
Now, before I get on with the chapter. I need to talk about the taste of woman the people working on this like because it is important you understand something before we get to a certain scene in this chapter. Now Kishimoto despite what ever complaints you have of him likes outspoken women. He likes woman that speak their mind who aren't afraid to stand up for themselves to the point he honestly doesn't get the appeal of demure wallflowers. As for looks attractive and in shape seem to be what he likes. Ikemoto while I don't know what personality type he likes in a woman. I can tell you what he find physically attractive in a woman: young and he is a leg man. Any woman he he put any effort into will often have very shapely -often bare- legs. Often times in the manga their is often a focus on these women's' legs as well. The other thing is he likes them young. To the point that if a woman is suppose to be older in certain panels she will seem underage. Not help by the fact that he doesn't really draw breast on the adult woman. All of them are really slim except for the one lab assistant. Also I assume everyone remembers his changes to the designs of Salad's & the Clone's outfits right? As for Kodachi it is the reverse while I don't know that he finds physically attractive in a woman I have been able to gleam what he may like in a woman. He likes them...what the best way to put it...eager? Sexually active? Easy? Thirsty? He likes his woman to really wanting to have sex.
So, in Naruto we have a bunch of attractive outspoken women who people liked but didn't get much focus because Kishimoto had no confidence in his ability to write them.
In Boruto, we have a lot of young women -some even children- with bare legs constantly behaving in a sexual manner as well as being eager for sex. Oddly, the only two that don't fit that are Hinata and her daughter. I hope it due to that the daughter is too young, and I guess even Hinata is too antithetical to their taste.
Right, so the chapter start out with the Hokage monument and the skyscrapers on top of it. Wasn't the village only rebuilt like 15 years ago at best? Why is that the two areas design look so different? One is this weird mix of modern & traditional wooden city, and the other is just a modern city with a lot of skyscrapers. Also if the village were to expand due to an increase population. Why did they put in on top of the mountain instead of expanding outward like any other city would do first before just building tall? Also I don't recall their ever being a scene yet of people in that area.
Anyways, Bolt and Cups are jumping through the trees. Bolt trips and the two discuss how he never trips while tree running. Its because Karma is activated for some reason; could be due to the ten tails. Which normally only happens either during a fight or because of Nail, which gives Bolt a bad feeling.
Naruto is watching Nail look for a missing piece of the vase...still? Naruto point out he is unlike to find it since Hinata cleans the house everyday. Well, its not like she has anything better to do.
Then it cuts to Blonde Sai and Shikamaru's son talking about how they feel about Nail. They both like him.
Now to Ino's flower shop where Sakura is getting flowers for Sasuke's return...What? Even after three months this still confuses me. Why is she getting flower for his return? isn't it suppose to be the opposite? Anyways, in comes Salad who asked her mother about the seal on her forehead.
Back to Barbarian hair, who is still waiting this entire time. Either it wasn't that long or he going out for snacks and is polite enough not to leave a mess. He wonders what his boss Jigen is going to do.
This chapter jumps around a lot.
Back to Nail & Naruto. Hinata and the daughter are going out shopping while Nail finally calls it quits on finding the final piece. Then he notice his seal is acting up.
Back To Sakura, who explains the seal on her forehead -you should all know what it does- but apparently it comes from the time of the Six Sage. Which is a way to try and justify why Bolt and Her seal look the exact same. She also has to do some shopping so she asked Salad to bring the flowers home which clues Salad in that Sasuke coming home. The thing is due to how Kodaichi has been writing his women so far I sadly don't just see this as a mother and a daughter celebrating, "daddy is coming home." I get the feeling they are celebrating Sakura "getting some tonight." UGH. Ino senses Jenga (his nickname from now on) coming.
Whose then comes out of Nail's karma seal. Barbarian hair's toad is notice by Jenga and worries that he will become suspicious of him. Jenga notice that he is in Naruto's living room and apologies for entering without removing his shoes. Well, with this and that diner scene at least we know he has nice manners. Naruto attack and instantly get pierced
& pinned by some thick black rods. A conversation between him and Nail. Ino tells her people to follow protocol and Salad dashes off.
Kurama has to activate to get the rods out after berating Naruto for being a disgrace to his title. I get the feeling he has grown disappointed with Naruto over the years. Even to the point of having contempt for him now.
Back to Nail and Jenga. Jenga, says something, I guess insults Naruto and Nail gets upset transforming his face adding a horn to his head a bit which impresses Jenga with his progress. Naruto kicks him and for his rude manners Jenga decide to eliminate Naruto.
