Well, I saw something amusing MobuSeka dub used Richie Rich to insult the future first wife of the main character. Also, the main character reaction to playing that game is very similar (though far less dramatic in my case) to having to read another one of these bloody chapters is for me.

 

Summary Time: Chapter 69. Captives...the chapter number is making me wonder if Shikamaru and Madoc going to be put in a sex dungeon or something?

 

The Cover is Mustard...OK. Does anyone else think this is a childish face? Why are all Ikemoto's female character seem to have very child-like traits and features to me? The fact they are often sexualized makes it even creepier to look at them.

 

Madoc is shocked at seeing Hime. Mustard goes in for an attack but Hime's stupid charm power activates that prevents her from finishing a kick. Hime makes a comment about seeing her underwear. Then she order her to release Punk...this charm power is now just as broken as her brothers reflection power. During the whole the scene art is bad and Shikamaru is wondering what's going on...Though in his case it isn't because he can't figure out what the hell Ikemoto is failing to draw again. Also, its nice he had an idea last chapter but it was bound to fail.

 

...Ugh. Now Bolt and Sasuke are having a talk. Ok. He apologizes for not being around during the last battle, it was his responsibility as Bolt's mentor to deal with Femmy, he regrets that Nail had to do it, and feels like no one but him should be hated by the village...wasn't the cycle of hatred suppose to have been ended? Wasn't he suppose to find some sort of peace? Why does Sasuke feel like he has to be the villages scapegoat? (yes yes I know some stupid thing from his light novel) Wasn't Naruto suppose to fix all that? One page of this and I can already see several examples of How Naruto failed off the top of my head. The rest is about how Nail should not be blamed because Bolt asked him to and they are 'Bros.' Oh good, they bring up that Bolt has/suppose to be wearing Sasuke's headband since the chunin exams and has to keep wearing it till he gets that scar. Bolt wants to return it to Sasuke. How long has it been since the chunin exam? Its has to been a few weeks/months since then in story; longer in the anime. Why does he only think of giving it back now? Why hasn't this come up sooner? Sasuke says to keep it if it helps him. Bolt is happy...when is he getting his eye scarred again?...soon, please.  Sasuke mentions how soon it might be his turn to show his resolve...well we know he can't die since he needs to train Bolt during the time skip. Its Naruto that has the Grim Reaper hanging over his head.

 

Oh, Salad and Cups watch this interaction from afar and wonder what they are talking about....God, this art is awful; did he forget how to draw these two after not drawing them for a couple of years? Cups mentions how devoted he is to Bolt and he feels like he couldn't forgive if someone were to harm him...yes, give something to feed the anime shippers not like anyone really cares about Bolt & Nail. Speaking of shipping, Salad laments how useless she feels they both have been. Ok, this is likely an acknowledgment that they haven't been involved that much by Kishi and that is going to change...doubtful given his tract record. When a character stops being involved in the plot they might as well stop existing when Kishi writes something. Since, it is unlikely they will be re-involved in the plot after they start to fade from it. Cups in his Sai role ask about her clear feelings for Bolt that she has that she won't admit to. She ends their scene talking about she has to get stronger as her goal is to become hokage. Again, nice to see it mentioned, but unless this is back up by action; its meaningless fluff.

 

Nail wakes up with Naruto and the Clone still watching over him. This makes Nail recall this is how they met for the first time and ask is he going to start waxing nostalgically about his youth again. Naruto tries to get the Clone to leave the room so they can talk, but Nail cuts to the chase before she able to leave and ask about what's going to happen. Since, he thinks he killed Bolt. Naruto informs him Bolt is alive. Naruto considers the whole thing water under the bridge but it is clear the Clone doesn't feel that way.

 

Shikamaru/Ino inform Naruto and Sasuke what is happening in the lab.

 

Good news, Shikamaru can use his shadow possession to hold her. Since, it doesn't inflict harm. Shikamaru ask Ino to put him in a mental call with Madoc. Once, Madoc realizes he is in that call with Shikamaru he informs them they are all Hime's captives. Oh, wait. This implies Hime is not Madoc's daughter...maybe, and we start seeing the effects as Mustard falls for her.  Punk is freed as Shikamaru's hold fades and he starts torturing Madoc. Shikamaru asks Hime what her deal is, and like a shy girl she wants Nail. Shikamaru then hatches a plan to bribe Hime over to Konoha's side giving her Nail...when did he become a pimp? Of course, that is going to backfire even if it works. At least, its nice he was allowed to have two ideas so far in this manga: making a trap to speed along the plot, and pimping out a thirteen year old.

Dragon Ball Super 83 continuing the flashback. Gas hints to Bardock that the Saiyans are going to be wiped out. The Namekian tries to send Bardock home, but he refuses. As the fight goes on Gas wonders why Bardock is fighting. To Bardock, once a fight start all he thinks about is winning; everything else is meaningless. Gas releases his true power, but Bardock grows stronger due the saiyans going stronger through battle. He beats Gas. Elec comes over to pick him up and taunt Bardock by hinting about how Freeza is going to kill them all. He doesn't secure the kill as Freeza's ship is coming to check out the planet.

Right, so no one wants to comment again. Let me help you all get started. I find two things in the chapter absurd Sasuke being hated and everyone devotion towards Bolt.

 

When was anyone been allowed to hate Sasuke in Naruto and not be seen as in the wrong by the manga? Anytime someone says or thinks anything negative about Sasuke the manga makes it so that they are in the wrong. Think he is a stuck up prick who doesn't care about others? Clearly your just jealous. Think he is a traitor that abandoned his village for power willing even to kill his own teammates that still care about him if they get in his way? Your inhumane for abandoning a comrade. Think he wants to destroy the village and may have even gone mad, consume by revenge? You don't know him. You think his plans are insane? He is a genius, you're the idiot for questioning him. Think he gone too far or too far gone? You're horrible for giving up on him. So, this 'oh woe Sasuke is so hated,' comes off as very hollow.

 

Bolt 'friends' in this chapter seemed really upset and devoted towards him going on and on about how they could never forgive anyone who harmed him. This isn't odd normally in shounen since this is eventually the feeling most people have toward the main character. The problem is, what has Boruto done to earn such devotion from Surime, Mitsuki, and Sarada? This feels unearned because he hasn't done anything and has just been given this level of devotion. This manga has been obsessed with forging a bond between Nail and Bolt so their SNS bond doesn't seem so poorly founded as its predecessor and ridiculous once it becomes the entire manga. As well as wasting five chapters on Bolt making a bond with Richie Rich. Yet, it neglected these three as they have barely spent any amount of time bonding with either Nail or Bolt in this manga. The clone may have been the first arc villain in the anime but the manga has done nothing with her. Cups was made to worship Bolt by Orochimaru, but he hasn't shown himself to be worthy of that worship. As for Salad, one compliment from Bolt in chapter ten and she will give her life for him if needed. Yet, all three will do anything Bolt says on command and die if he needs them to? This feels just completely unearned. Granted getting things one did not earn yet the story acting like it is expected is certainly something he may have inherited from his mother.

if Sasuke is becoming hated then maybe Kishi is finally coming to his senses.

I wish I could have the powers of Superman so I could save protect the world under God's will.

Always have the spirit and the guts to never ever give up no matter what.

"We need some ideas for Boruto. Let's hear them"

One writer: "Let's have Naruto's and Sasuke's kids switch places. Let's have Boruto behave like Sasuke...gives no kittens about anyone, but himself and have everyone fall in love with him. He can also gain all these hax abilities with very little effort. As for Salad, she is going to be like Naruto...obsessed over Boruto for no reason. Probably would go to the ends of the earth for him and also make all of her development a waste of time."

"Genius."

And then someone went. "Wait. She is a girl. She can't be important to the story. Let us put her aside, create a new Sasuke for this manga, and have a repeat of chase after Sasuke story from part two."

...No. Sasuke is not hated from what I've seen in this manga. Besides Salad, but she doesn't count. This is some, "Woe is me," crap to say that Nail shouldn't be hated just like Sasuke shouldn't.

Isn't it kind of telling that Sarada and Mitsuki have a more realistic and understandable reaction to Boruto almost getting killed than Naruto does. father of the year we have here but back on topic. It is true, whatever bonds Boruto has with Sarada, Mitsuki and Sumire is TOLD NOT SHOWN, from what I remember for the most part. so while I appreciate them reacting as Boruto's kitten father SHOULD HAVE DONE, it is unwarranted from a story telling stand point. The double standards of Sasuke always fry my brain so no comments there.

The thing is by comparing Nail to Sasuke the manga is saying, "he shouldn't be hated for this."

 

Agreed. If a friend of mine died or nearly died but survived due to come contrivance. I Thank God they lived, and give the person that nearly killed them a good decking. My problem with his friends isn't they shouldn't be feeling this way, but it feels unearned.

 

Ultimately, the fact that this is even brought up in the manga should make clear what is going on. Naruto can't handle tough questions like this, both the story and the character run and ignore these tough question because they don't have an answer for them. Hell, one of the best examples of this happened just a few chapters ago, where Naruto told Shikamaru to shut up because he couldn't answer the question of instantly forgiving the person who killed his son despite the beliefs he preaches to everyone says to. What is going to happen is, when Nail turns evil the fact the anyone held a grudge against him for killing Bolt, even if for only a second, is going to be used as a major reason for why he fell.

Indeed, I know you didn't mean that it wasn't that Sarada Mitsuki and Sumire shouldn't have reacted as they did, but that from what the manga showed their bonds weren't given the focus and spotlight to show how close they are are so the feeling you get from their upset  is kind of off set by the lack of showing their friendship, because they were all sidelined for the Naruto X Sasuke 2.0 dynamic with Kawaki

Pretty much. Shounen have these moments to show other characters devotion towards the main character in return for the actions they had done for them. The two most common lets call piccolo and straw hat.

 

Piccolo (taking the bullet) moments are used to show that a person that was previous aloof to a person actually deeply cared about them due to a moment of kindness. Naruto has two famous moments in chapter one with Iruka, and Sasuke during the fight with Haku. These were to show that people do care about him and he has made friends/bonds; which is important for a kid that was alone and hated his entire life before that.

 

Straw Hats are statements of belief despite risk of death. Often for them the crew stating their belief that Luffy will be king of the pirates: Usopp vs the mole woman, Zoro & Sanji with Kuma, Jinbe against Big Mom, and recently Nami with the headbutting dinosaur woman.

 

I would put what they said in the second option despite no risk of life. But again it feels hollow because we haven't focused on their bond with Bolt at all.
