I definitely like it. I really like how Kishimoto is showing Naruto is looking more grown up. He is midway through his 16th year now, so nearing the change in style to how Kishimoto draws 17-19 year olds. (Sakura's hit that point in this arc- turned 17. I noticed Kishimoto did subtly change how he drew Sakura at the start of the war arc- she now looks like a female character 17-19 years old, in his style.) That range is the first range where the characters look adult, the face is still softer than 20-24, and softer yet than the full adult face of 25-29 but the adolescent roundness of the jaw is just about gone and the size of the eyes in proportion to the face gets smaller, and the nose gets slightly more defined.

Am I the only one who thinks the art of the cover looks different from Kishimoto's usual art style?



To me, it has a more painting-esque appearance then most of the covers. It's kinda like that color spread of Naruto and Sasuke that looked like one of those old style Japanese paintings of the past.



It's interesting that A's Lightning Style Armor is colored yellow instead of blue. It reminded me of a fan colored panel of the Fourth Raikage and Sasuke fighting from one of those chapters.



Nevertheless, it's still a pretty cool cover. :True:

Im pretty sure its because in the manga, chakra is yellow rather then blue. I think even naruto's rasengan is yellow in the manga too.

Ew..no. No offense to you bearded guys, but I just can't picture Naruto with one :/ It would take away his youthful appearance

Back on topic....
I definitely like the cover. But I would like something a little more than just a character mashup. It's nice, nonetheless.
