Fun spin off

People getting to overhype over nothing. Kishimoto was already done with chapter 700. Then the mangaka wanted him to continue so he just did a fun short spin off as other mangaka do after a story is completed. The drama isn't needed in the story. But it still feels wonderful too see some of these characters again. Now if you want a true ending read or watch bourto the movie.

Kishimoto just having fun writing this story after finish the series. After the internet reporting that Sarada is karin and Sasuke kishi decided to write about it, trolling everyone on it. Is it needed? Not really. Does it give us more information about certain characters? Indeed. But kishi having fun with this spin off and I enjoy it.

megane is the best
all character with glasses is the best!
Yeah when sarada appear in this was like a must read lol

To think that sarada was there child lol what a twist
Perfect 10 but sadly its just a very very short series

don't really care about cons and pros out there
they can debate all they want
naruto was one of the most decent thing next to DBZ for me
and the ending was satisfying (The last move was very Good)

I hope of more of this

Being surrounded by Tumblr spoilers and not reading it until it was finished, I knew most of what happened before reading it. I was expecting to be highly disappointed, possibly even angered (enough people on Tumblr were). Putting all Tumblr rants aside, it was pretty descent. That is if it were a stand-alone manga. That's the thing that gets me. It doesn't feel like Naruto. It felt like a comedic (because of Chouchou) soup opera with a tiny bit of Naruto. Besides the fighting, the only bits that had the same feeling that Naruto usually has was when Naruto discussed bonds with Sarada and when Sasuke answered her question about Sakura in the final chapter. Anyway, I just find the ending to Naruto a let down in general. It seems like Kishimoto just wrapped things up quick and easy when there was a lot more potential to be had.

Bland as f*** ending

Seriously, Kishi really doesn't know how to write good endings.
I mean yeah, I predicted that it'd end up the way it did but I just don't feel like the spin-off got a proper wrap-up. It's like Kishi couldn't be bothered to make a splash ending and just wanted to write a bland as f*** normal ending. I expected an awesome revelation or something. What did he even start a new spin-off for anyways? He just ended up reusing the same old themes he used in Naruto again. Sigh, maybe it's because I've been reading Naruto for too long. I just thought this spin-off deserved a good wrap-up. Man, it had to end like this, just when I started to really like Sarada. Giving it a 6 just because I liked Sarada. Would've given it a 5.

Naruto hate is almost as popular as the manga itself, perhaps more at times, and Sakura fans, especially those that had enough negation to stand for NaruSaku, are pretty posteriorly-blasted, so it would be smart not to take them too seriously.
I am giving this a 10 mostly because of how many negative reviews it is getting, especially because they seem to be fueled by resentment, but all around it is a pretty good gaiden. The plot is interesting, Kishimoto wasn't afraid to add some controversial stuff, and the fact that he could take a rest and write this more calmly shows.

This is the perfect example of why you should not continue a story after showing the flash-forward. You should always leave your readers wanting more and not saying "I never asked for this". Other than one revelation, the entire series turned out to be useless and akin to beating a dead horse.

Should add that BlackOrion sounds extremely biased and his review calling out other reviewers for not liking what he likes is highly hypocritical. Instead, disregard his tainted review and read the manga (in the end it's just 10 chapters) and see for yourself why a majority are letdown by it.

Some nice parts but the all Sasuke plot seems rushed. If there was a Naruto 2 (Like dragon ball Z) then the all family drama would have been better suited there (more time to actually do things properly )

However it´s still a fun read for those who liked Naruto

Same old , good Story

I find the new story is having the same theme as Naruto series with additional theme now which is more details relationship between parent and son/daughter relationship.

and it still contain old element of evil/hatred vs good/love which is typical of shounen manga theme.
It certainly keep me entertain week in and week out, and I do found very less manga that could do that except maybe kingdom.

I was wondering why many bad comment on below from the reader, if it was so bad with 1 or 2, 3 rating why they bother reading it and writing a review about it anyway? I guess internet do have a fair share of trolls.

I never bother reading manga I found rating below 4 and certainly wont bother writing a review on it.
