I’m sure that many of us have noticed what is happing with SNS in the Bor//uto manga. Pretty much all of the SNS moments we were given in the Bor//uto movie, have been changed by the new mangaka (Mikio Ikemoto).
Now, I didn’t really care much about it because I knew this manga was just a rip-off that shouldn’t be taken seriously. But, then, it hit me.And just to make things clear;this is all just my theories and speculations.
Firstly, let’s take a look at what happened in the latest chapter of the Bor//uto manga:
We all remember this beautiful moment, right?
Well… Let’s just say the manga didn’t pay us the favour:
As you can see, in the first panel, I circled where Naruto and Sasuke are standing and in the second panel we can see the distance between the two.
Not only that but this also happened:
And, as far as I can tell, this was meant to replace these two scenes:
Not a millimetre of space between them. Arms wrapped around each other.
Holding onto bae for support.
After seeing this, I came up with a wild conclusion (which is just a speculation). I’m worried that this is what might happen with the rest of the Naruto anime and most likely with the Bor//uto anime. They will try to erase SNS. Of course, it’s not the same as with this movie and manga which show two different sides. But, I have a feeling like this is what will slowly start to happen. I’m guessing other pairings will go through this as well (but it’s not like they had anything to start with), but SNS will be mostly affected since it’s not ‘canon’ or ‘hetero’.
However, we know that Kishi will be working on this new anime as well and we do know how he feels about SNS. Maybe he will throw in some stuff for us. Though, we know what kind of troll he can be sometimes :’)
