So aparently Naruto will have a new season this January. Even tough i wouldnt call it a “third season” since the story takes place two years after Sasuke leaves the village (that makes it 1 and a half year before Shippuden) and it will be called “Naruto no Senaka: Nakama no Kiseki” wich was confirmed in Jump Festa 2015.
The new arc will focus on the chunnin exams while Naruto is with Jiraiya, wich will be held at Suna with Gaara as the new Kazekage.
Also, for those who enjoyed the ending of Naruto, there’s news on the upcoming Naruto movie that will air on August 2015
Yes, Boruto, Naruto and Hinata’s kid will have a movie that will focus on the new generation of ninja that appeared on Naruto 700.
“Even though the manga ended, I haven’t taken a break. I am currently thinking about a story between Bolt and Sarada. Sasuke and Sakura will be in it, too. I am also thinking about Bolt’s lethal technique.”
Also, rumors say that there will be another mini series in spring of 2015, following Naruto’s children and the new characters of the manga.
Still there has been no confirmation on wether Kishimoto will be working on them.
Finally, there is also the rumor that a ligth Novel will be released focusing on Kakashi. All of this are part of the project Naruto shin jidai Kaimaku Project (Naruto’s New Era Opening Project)
NARUTO, THE LAST: JAPANESE FANS REACTIONS, KISHIMOTO'S WORDS AND OTHER THINGS
I decided to compile the information I got for the people that are still wondering what the fuck is going on. Our translator is a native Japanese, so just listen and shut up. The name is not going to be revealed due to everyone on tumblr are assholes.
1) Summary of the movie and the situation at the theaters.
“This movie is sold 175% more than RTN in their first day. Which is understandable if you think of the huge Sasuke and Kakashi fanbase who bought the merchandise and tickets before the plot was shown AND the fans who went to see the movie because it’s the LAST movie which resolves the ending.”
^Above contains the information of how The Last only sold more than RTN in their respective FIRST day.
Translator words about the theards and words from a general view of what is happening in japanese websites about the movie, etc:
“The majority of hate comes from this false advertisement. Sasuke and Kakashi are always number one and two in popularity polls. The fans of Sasuke and Kakashi now understood that they were lead on to buy the pre-sale tickets because they have the biggest fanbase. Now they’re really really mad calling this fraud.”
“There was a refund in the movies before. The no refund policy started from this movie or they started after revealing the spoilers. Hence people call it a fraud.”
“I didn’t read much about Junko’s part. They say that she was a NS fan and she was forced in doing something she didn’t want to do or something like that. They were also saying something about her comment saying she doesn’t understand how guys can like that type of girl(=Hinata) or something. I didn’t read thoroughly so I’m not so sure.”
2) Japanese fans reactions.
As always, there is gonna be 2 sides, but from what I got, negatives reviews are overwhelming. Hinata’s anti-threads exploded, Naruto’s anti threads and anti movie’s were created too in 2ch. The comments are NOT only from NS fans, but from everyone.
I don’t know how to react towards Naruto becoming a scumbag
339 ：見ろ！名無しがゴミのようだ！：2014/12/05(金) 21:07:59.26 ID:XhJ9ANMW >>336 >最終回を読んだ読者の方が抱いた疑問やモヤモヤをここでキッチリと解消し、すっきりしてもらえると思います！」 ﾊﾊｯ “People who read the last chapter could clear their doubts with this movie” Loooool
We had a scene of the emotionless Sai worrying for Naruto at the fake confession But if the mislead is true then that means he was made to believe Naruto’s fake love for Sakura, Forced Sakura in a corner and said something he shouldn’t have I didn’t know Naruto was the worst scumbag who would say that he hate people who lie to themselves and do the same thing using people
I can’t stop laughing at the change of expression of the middle school students sitting in front of me. “The one where they Naruto filed to a parallel universe with Sakura was so much more interesting” I absolutely agree
People say that the privileges fraud always existed but you don’t go “Yeah, I accept it!” by that They should have made all the privileges into NH but they say they can’t because the tickets won’t sell. But that means that they are making something that doesn’t sell into the main of the movie.
The pre-sales ticket fraud is too horrible. If this movie airs it’s going to become a bigger sh*tstorm They know that Hinata doesn’t sell so they use other characters and do fraud And those pairing tards are keep on attacking on comments against this fanfic movie The retardedness of Hinata moe anime studio and NH tards are amazing They respond many times, change their IDs, and their thinking is so crappy.
What it’s unacceptable that those are the only Sasuke scenes Most of all they excluded him from the wedding Was that all Sasuke was to Naruto? Even though he kept on saying Sasuke Sasuke in canon Sigh, I’ll continue after I watch it
I don’t care whether this is a romance movie or whatever But why is every other character that isn’t Naruto or Hinata gone to the side? They kept on showing Sasuke and Kakashi in the pre-sales and this is what happens Also the other rookies seem to be tools Who is going to gain from watching this movie
I’m so relieved that I won’t get harassed by the retarded NH in this thread They attack on any single comment that talks bad about the movie with more than 20 replies and it’s sick It doesn’t make sense for the movie which not only doesn’t compliment the canon story but disregards it not to be bashed
I want to see Sasuke and Kakashi’s fight scenes more than Hinata’s scarf They could have made it Allstar Please tell me that this isn’t the last Naruto movie I liked this story that it makes me want to cry I want to see a ninja movie where team seven and the rookies are active instead of a romance movie Naruto had Iruka Everything is a mess
If they made the privileges Kakashi and Sasuke They knew that if they used these two characters the movie will sell and many people will be happy They knew this and they made Sasuke appear only for two seconds and that Kakashi scene. I feel like they had ill intentions.
Even in the poster and the main visual the rookies were drawn in the same size as Hinata The people who are going to watch the movie because it’s the last would have expected more actions They made only Hinata have some story that was not in canon and made her knit a scarf which was a waste of time The other characters are just there like ornaments and they ignored the unresolved plot points of canon manga This isn’t something you do in a movie you call the last
I feel so bad for Sasuke and Kakashi fans They made the use money with the pre-sales and the goods but in the movie they only appear for 90 seconds The comment on the book cover was forcefully brought in to sell it Hinata is the main so they should have made Hinata goods
With such an ill intended way of sales, even though they fixed some parts due to the bad response from the people watching the screening, it would have ended badly I feel bad for people who cannot get a refund But they are allowed to watch the movie and give this movie one star and complain
NaruHina fans are really not reading the canon manga Of course they won’t realize the difference of personalities and settings with the canon version so they are happy in their own thread I don’t know what they want if they are only happy with their characters wedding and not reading canon
Update of the Japanese comments in the anti-THE LAST thread. Apparently, it seems like the anime studio made a commercial where Sakura is being jealous of being robbed of her heroine status. The Naruto fandom are angry about this and this is their comments.
This commercial is true….how much of a scum are the staff? It’s so disgusting I can just feel their Sakura hate I hated them when they posted the Hinata is the true heroine comment Now my hate has increased, what a sh*t
Movie Voucher Inside me Naruto’s child era has finished and from when the adolescent era started I decided to make Naruto get with Hinata.
Hinata is the only one who saw Naruto trying hard from the beginning and cheered for him. Naruto knows that no matter how things don’t go well you’re cool as long as you try hard and never give up. Sakura also realizes that in the middle, but I felt sorry for Hinata who was there from the beginning if she isnt reciprocated (lol).
“But I didn’t really have any devotion about the love story of the two-Naruto and Hinata- (lol). I didn’t plan to write this story.”
“In the latest interview her answer (Junko’s) towards "How do you feel about the Hinata love story?” was quite direct: There was never anything to show that this (NH) was going to happen so I was surprised.“
"Also, it seems to be that the Bolt movie will have a Nana Mizuki play Himawari. However, Junko will not star in this movie for some reason.”
“I remember her words to Kishimoto during RTN promotion. It was like
Junko: If you will make a Naruto son, can I give my voice to him too, sensei?!?
Kishimoto: Sure! ”
This is from an old interview with her:
“Interviewer: So, the chronicles of a grown up Naruto begin at last. Can we expect any major changes to his voice and your performance to reflect it?
Takeuchi: Well, both young Naruto and grown-up Naruto are the same character, but…I’m going to imagine that some amazing stuff happened in the two years not chronicled in the original manga, and approach the role as if it were brand new. As for whether or not there’ll be changes to the voice or not, I won’t know until I actually do it… well, maybe it won’t change (smiles). I’m intending for half of the elements in my performance to consist of what we’ve built up until this point, and for the rest to be a brand new character. I’m really excited about it.
Interviewer: Will his relationship to Sakura and Kakashi undergo changes as well?
Takeuchi: I don’t think there will be major changes. But, for instance, where before he would have surely tried a brute strength approach, he might not; where before he would have simply tried to plow forward, he might stop and think. That’s where we’ll see his growth. I feel Naruto grows stronger the more people there are whom he cares for and needs protect, and the Naruto we’ll see in Shippuden will have a better grasp as to how to protect them. I think he also has more power to work with now, too. But he’ll still be as reckless as ever (smiles).
Also, I’m eager to see what happens, romantically with Sakura. I mean, little by little things have started looking up, right?
Interviewer: Well, that’s true.
Takeuchi: And that’s why I’m worried things will go terribly wrong! If things are going well right now it means it’ll be difficult* later on, so will you please stop getting worked up so easily, Sakura-chan!”
That’s probably why she was "surprised” at the ending.
4) Other things.
According to the greeting:
NARUTO’s new movie is coming on next august.
Boruto is a lead character and Naruto, Sasuke, Sarada will appear in it.
Kishi’s now busy thinking the scenario.
He’s going to think how SS get married from now.
He also worried whether the scenario of the last movie connects well with that of original manga.
He forgot to make Boruto & Himawari have Byakugan.
He named Boruto (volt) to express that Neji (which means volt in Japanese) fixed Naruto up with Hinata.
Also, it seems that Chie Nakamura complained for the lack of SS in the movie, so Kishimoto will make something about it in the incoming movie about Bolt.
