From Narutoforums. Not sure if this was posted here yet or not. I think you guys got some tidbits before, but this is the full thing. (from motion comic interview for RTN)-


QUOTE
this is from
the bonus DVD given away to those who went to see Road to Ninja, released on 28/july 2012.

Note: For now I skip the part kish talks about the movie, as how he likes Michael J. Fox and Back to the Future, as how his family is important to him, as how he gave troubles to the anime crew as how my avatar (well no, the original of it) impressed himself and blah blah blah. And I tried to make the trans as true to Kishi's words as possible that sry if its too messy. if ud rather see the lines paraphrased, tell me.

-from the mark 16:38, kish on the future of the manga

Q: How will the manga develop from now?
Kishi: About the future development of the manga, yes?… Hereafter the Great Shinobi War will reach its final phase and yet more astonishing characters will appear, like this character after that character. It'll gain momentum, I think.
...Damn it, I don't care anymore, I'm gonna tell too many things (=spoilers), ok?
Yes, a faceoff between Naruto and Sasuke is waiting as well.
First of all 'beep!' come(/comes) back and because 'beep!',
'beep!' resurge(/s) from 'beep!'. And then the bijus gather together and 'beep' to 'beep(/win)!'.
This way there are many dramas(=dramatic events) planned for (/toward) the end and as 'beep' of 'beep' are going to fall like 'beep', your eyes will be glued (to the manga), I reckon.

Towards the end both the manga and the anime will get exciting, and as I'm writing the manga (the original), I'll make it exciting even if it costs me my life. I guarantee it will be thrilling, so please, get thrilled with it. Please, wait for that, I wont let u down. I'll try my best. Whatever comes I will do my best.
…I don't have any more to say…(laughter from the crew)
Did I say I'll do my best!? (laughter)

-masashi kishimoto×twitter Qs and As
kishs answers to fans tweets

a fan via twitter: what is Naruto for kishimoto-sensei?
K: by Naruto you mean the title or the character? if the character, a hero perhaps…yes hes the hero.

F: whats your drive that keeps you writing Naruto?
K: well, that must be you fans hot supports.

F: what ninjutsu do you want to use?
K: as ive said many a time, the jutsu useful for me is kagebunshin. if you ask me why, by using kagebunshin to make 17 clones of me and giving a page to each clone, Id finish a chap in no time.
so id like to use kagebunshin.

F: which chara is closest to you(/your character)?
K: the closest is…hmm maybe Kiba or Naruto…they do things before thinking…for that I think im close to them.

F: in the naruto charas, who would u like to make best friends with, if u could?
K: hmmm.. Actually I dont particularly want to be a close friend of any of them….but maybe Lee. yes its Lee. Rock Lee would be nice. He seems truthful.

F: if u were to go out with one of your female charas whod you like?
Kish: its kinda creepy to think about going out with a chara i created myself but...if forced, well, id say...Hinata, perhaps.

F: which chara is difficult to draw?
K: Sasuke comes first. sasuke is really (a toughie)…. for I designed him to expose his knees. I did the design beforehand but i found it difficult to keep drawing the knees …
cos I always felt awkward to draw his knees, I decided to hide them later on.
so are the most of those who came in during the chunin exam…like neji, hes quite tough to draw. I dont know why I had to design him like that myself but neji had those stupid 3 belts, bands or whatever u may call them around the chest and I was always wondering what the hell they were supposed to be while drawing him. when I started the part 2 thankfully I managed to change it, and I was quite happy with the design of the part 2 neji untill people started to say he wore long underpants and stuff. these days Im unhappy about it again. I want to change it(nejis clothing) again to be honest.

F: You share same birthday with Sasori, dont you? Is Sasori a special chara for you?
Kish: mmm do i? Sarori? the same birthday as his?is it so? …well…oh yes…in a mook book(=a term for publications cross between magazine and book) maybe? we forcefully decided the birthday when we made the mook book. oh yes yes I remember it now. sasori is…because sasori(the name) means scorpion and im a scorpion we should share the same birthday or something like that… thats about the size of it, really.

F: because i love kishimoto-sensai Im calling you "Kishie" or "Lord kishi-kage" but what would you like to be called as?
Kish: what id like to be called? call me as you like. I accept whatever.

F: If Naruto ever has a son what name will you give him?
Kish: If Naruto has a son what name hell have…hmm…I used to think menma would be fine. people often jokingly asked me "wont you start Menma when you finish Naruto?" "you should write about narutos son, Naruto the 2nd" or "why not write menma?" but now I used the name for the movie, that...ummmm…(the name of narutos son will be) Shinachiku* I guess.
*(shinachiku is another name for menma, seasoned bamboo shoots)

F: did itachi have someone special?
K: if Itachi had a gf? Yes, I believe he did. cos he must have been quite popular among girls, I think he had.

F: you said as the authors comments in the vol 60 that you develop your ideas in the bathroom. how long do you spend in the bath?
K: let me see…when a shower it takes about 30mins or so and when Im soaked in a hot tub, about one hour and half.
I bring some bottled water or tea with me. when my blood circulation is good, ideas are easy to pop into my head that I work on ideas in the bath.

F: how do your children call you?
K: Otoh-san (father). they call me Oto-san. Occasionally they call me 'the person who writes Naruto'

F: what do you want the most right now?
K: smiles from everyone that sees Narutos movie and/or the manga.

F: what kind of manga do you think ull be writing when you are an old man?
K: when im an old man let me retire please….but if I am still being whipped by editors to write manga, I d say ill write about love in an elderly home or something…I do like to write about love.

F: would you like to make another film?
Kish: i love to make films. yes I would. this time making a film, participating in it I found it fun and learnt a lot. so id love to do it again.

-thank you very much

And with that interview every Naruto fan fiction writer EVER now has an official word of god name to give to Naruto's son, too bad Kishimoto has already used one of them but at least we still have Shinachiku.

Interesting that he associates himself most closely with Kiba before Naruto. Ultimately they are both quite similar but that his first choice was Kiba bodes well I think for any future Kiba development.

Now since this interview officialy states that there will be a showdown between naruto and sasuke and a lot of daramtic moments, im even more sure that those recent chapters are some of the last we get to see hinata.
I feel like we are going to get a lot of action drom sakura.

So Naruto and Sasuke will have the show-down.
And I wonder what astonishing characters will appear, though...
I'm still waiting something from Sakura... It's been ages!

Well, at least we know that it seems that there will be some development for some characters, bijus gathering and dramatic events in the future with excitement near the end... and the rest are all 'beeps' fu.png

This means that the actual arc won't be the last. If Obito e Madara will die here, at 99% Sasuke will be the last villain. Otherwise what?

Yeap.
I fairly believe that Kishi doesn't feel the same touch to her he used to. He's like never mentioning her in any interview... If it's any female character he talks about, it's Hinata.
Really, now, Kishi?

Really? We are at chapter 615 and Kiba has been a joke character for all of Shippuden. I doubt he will get any future development since Kishi hasn't bothered with him at all. He didn't say he liked Kiba as a character. Only he shared a bad trait with him and Naruto in not thinking before they act.

The one thing that stood out for me the most, other than he likes to write about love(ha!), is what he said about Neji. How he didn't like how he looked in Shippuden and was going to change it. So I guess he just decided it was better to kill him off instead. yikes!

I'm glad Kishi gave a name to us! But why not a daughter too? I've always wanted Naruto to have a daughter. wub.gif It's just an image that stuck with me for a while now. But a daughter AND a son would be awesome! Maybe even three kids. xD

Yup, development was the wrong word to use I should have said focus but I obviously don't mean anything to the degree Hinata's gotten because her and Kiba are in no way on the same level of importance but Kiba is Narutos rival (self given title mind you) and considering that was brought up when the alliance was running I expect it to be payed off, that added with Kishi's quote about characters shining and I expect him to get some focus. But also Choji has often been just as much of a joke character and he has arguably gotten the biggest development in the war out of any character, even bigger than Hinata's I'd wager (at the moment at least).

I find it interesting how the quote about writing about love has been received, to me writing about love and writing about romance are two very different things, Naruto is a pretty positive manga, there are dark moments but ultimately it all works out, love could mean anything from love for your village, love for your family, love for your friends or teammates or love for your sensei, it doesn't have to be tied to romance, in that respect I think Naruto IS a manga about love and Kishi likes writing about it considering how positive the messages of the manga are.

Why is it that every time Kishi does an interview, he doesn't sound like a mangka, but rather a rabid fan answering questions? You know what I mean?

He could've stick with Menma, but then we have to worry which one we're talking about: the Part 1 filler hell character, Naruto's AU RTN self, or Naruto's future son. I think Shinachiku should be name of Naruto's second son. Though, I want a name for his possible daughter (but hopefully Sakura will give a good name for that one and that's a big IF).


Fighting for one's worth!

Sounds like a stealth insult to Kishi. But as for the question: not everyone is a good speaker and naturally comfortable when being interviewed. It is not everybody's thing. Also, Japanese doesn't translate that well into English. You need a have a competent translator to get a smooth translation that sounds good in English. The person who translated the interview mentions translating it "as true to Kishi's words as possible". Meaning probably that they did not make any effort to try to think what Kishi was trying to convey with his words but just took the most literal translation possible.

No, it's not. And it's not a translator problem either because this is common in all interviews, not just recent ones. Okay for example, a while back ago a fan said "I hope Hinata gets her chance to confess to Naruto" and Kishi was said to have said "I hope so too."

If that is really what he said, then it's a weird way to respond to it. Not weird as in bad, but it is sort of a response a fan would say. I guess what I am trying to say is, does he purposely sound like this to play off giving an answer or does he do it to pretend like he doesn't know. Sort of like the mangaka having fun doing his own work. I also don't see Kishi as being so bad in public speaking or I no longer see this as an excuse because he has been doing it a long time. After a while, you do get used to it.

It's not a good or bad thing with how he replies, but merely....weird.
