700 is in my eyes only a teaser. Just a nice highlight real with little character interaction. Lets hit all the demographics in 2015 ! Orochimaru and Sasuke will get get a spinoff in JSQ or something. The kids will get their own 4-koma thing in Jump for KidZ(but now in near present day because laptops and all). Kakashi is getting a book deal already
. Hinata could get some josei slice of life thing with cooking receipts. The internet loves her after all. Then they meet One Piece and Goku. Maybe even the Titans ? Don´t they all ?
I am even so cynical that i can see a jump universe thing in about 5 years time as an ongoing. If the new doesn´t hit, then the orange(get it ?) will becomes the new Yen. Who wants Mario 2 anyway ? The end is a bit incomplete(Kishimoto you sly devil you just don´t want to have your honeymoon) so even i will try some of these. Let´s see for how long.
I really like Naruto by the way but 72 Volumes are not cool. The later Pain stuff is where the manga took a hit and it is no HxH and Kenshin. But i "outgrew" endless and plotless shonen action(and nonsense echi when everything fails and the low hanging fruit called titZ is needed) and usually clean my lists of stuff i couldn't care less. Ninja man thou survived where Magi, Fairy Tail, Negi, Bleach and so on couldn´t. I would cite the very likable characters, the way too good for weekly art and the occasional highlights like Kakashis well used past as strong points. The japanese nonsense mythology later on and horrible Final Fantasy X like reasons(great game but the "i hate suffering so EVERYONE needs to die" motivation is just horrid) for the all the villain post Orochimaru were NOT cool. The Itachi as a good guy revelations nearly destroyed him and Sasuke as characters. Yes i liked Sasuke till then and his ending is satisfying but he went through 30 Volumes of directionless mess to get there. The endless zombie fights so we could recycle nostalgia for 5+ Volumes was forced too. Sakura being a housewife at the end and not a doctor is not nice at all by the way. She may be useless but at least she stuck to her convictions(her LOYALTY over 9000) and got her "man". I bet he thought of female Naruto when he got her pregnant
. Where did this leak come from ? The issues is still not out in japan right ?
Probably something like this: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/02/16/are-the-marvel-pirated -comics-an-inside-job/
My final thoughts are: Ten-Ten(over the magical 27 so you are right yuri999) has no parents so what did you expect ? Lee probably "adopted" again.
Choji chose well. I am biracial so i always approve and even look like his 30 year old self but with even more hair and beard
Shikamaru probably slept through his wedding night.
Sei makes sense from Inos side but he probably misspoke again and was just dragged along and then had to make it "right". Why is his kid albino. His skin is only because of long stays underground right ? Akumas girl was expected and cool.
Gaara joined the Ninja-SS with his looks. I repeat Kibas catgirl is a real character !
She was even in a game. Naruto´s wikia has more information then the bible
Some characters aged in reverse and some look like they haven´t slept in 20 years. The art itself was good and the direction of the panels was thoughtful but Kishimoto does not know how to proportion fat people. 699 is a 9,5/10. 700 is a 7,5/10.
Cool endings but Neo Boruto(can he at least start shaving before we start shipping ?) the third will fill the gaps. I stayed up late for 2 days to drink the forum tears on Naruto forums and so on. Then i slept way too fine. After all MY dreams came true.
Too bad that she won´t lose an eye in the movie as some expected but she deserves happiness after 17 years of hell.
First Cloud X Tifa canon(they even had sex in the game so that was easy), then Naruto X Hinata canon(the moment her bro dropped sealed the deal for me and she even went through all the childhood romance steps and red scarves mean love). I just noticed many parallels with FFVII. I may have sadly found my waify type'
. I call her gentle fist with breasts full of sorrow. Maybe a third ship in a few years ? RE´s Jill and Chris sound good. I also noticed that Naruto is Kushina and Hinata(as rarely as she shows up) is Minato from a characterisation standpoint.
I haven´t watch the anime(the animation from Shippuden forwards is ballZ) outside of youtube highlight but i will see 698-700 with a fine wine in hand. It will be like watching my gaijin youth ride into the sunset. How many words did i just write ? You have to forgive me. More then a decade of reading will do strange thing to you. The ending to Bersek in 10+ years will inspire my first online novel.Last edited by residentgrigo at 8:04 am, Nov 9 2014
