Naruto Spinoff Manga Mini-Series to Begin on April 27
This year’s 18th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that the spinoff manga mini-series Naruto Gaiden: Nanadaime Hokage to Akairo no Hanatsuzuki (Naruto Spinoff: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring Month) will start on April 27. The combined 22nd/23rd issue of Weekly Shonen Jump will ship on April 27, and the magazine teases, “Urgent News: The story enters a new generation…”
I don’t get Kishi’s reasons for making SasuSaku and NaruHina canon. NaruHina was the WHOLE SERIES (until The Last and Chapters 699 and 700) one-sided and SS as well! I think NS would have made more sense, and NaruSasu would have made the most.
