Haven't read the original from '98, but this one was pretty cool, pacing was wierd, but I guess since it was a one shot it had to go really fast to get most of the story he wanted to tell through. If he ever got this one serialized after Naruto, I would definitely be a fan, just seems like an awesome hitman love story. Love his definitive art style he has now, so probably a little biased, but what'd you guys think?

Ok, now that I know what it is, I say... eh. Recently his manga's have been coming up short of expectation. However, that is also due to Naruto ending. Idk, I'll give it a couple chapters and we'll see how it goes

Yeah I kinda liked it only though I read the oneshot and the preview. It was quite interesting and well if it was a series it would have been really good. Even though the oneshot is great too ^^

It could be this or something else, but whenever he decides to end Naruto, I hope he doesn't rush himself and just creates something even more amazing lol.

it's good. But i hope kishi finishes naruto properly and doesn't let it bust coming down to the end. I've been following naruto for 9 years and to be honest if he doesnt make the ending worth my while i am not sure i will be too hot over a new series. essentially, how he ends naruto can either make him or break him for this "mario"<- to me atleast.

Just read it last week. So far it seems pretty cool, it could definitely go places. Sort of disjointed but I understand that because it is a one-shot. Hopefully it gets turned into his next series.

It's a one-shot so I don't know how would he break it down into chapters if that manga actually get accepted and published.
Would he start from the very beginning on how Mario got into the job?
There's not much angle. Not to mention, the drawing doesn't suit the theme of the story.
He did not even apply any shadow or tone. The finalized drawings were too straight and clean.
For god sake, Mario is a hitman. Make me feel like I'm reading one.

I would rather have him do this [rough drafts] and stick with it:

If he did, I'm satisfied. The dirty look of rough drafts simulates the dirty jobs of being a hitman.


Well, Mario, can't hold a stick of candle against "Until Death Do Us part."
That manga made me curious to read "Jesus" and "Aegis."

That was actually pretty good. I wish it wasn't just a one shot.

Kinda liked it but not perfection. Honestly, I somewhat hope that he extends it into a full series serialized manga.

I like the gritty mafia theme and the story could continue with ease where he left off a unusual female companion and male lead..has all the makings of most popular mangas doesn't it? But how did the japanese readers like it is what im wondering?

I just LOVE the dark angle, we are seeing a side of Kishimoto I never knew existed. I think it's impossible to ignore the juxtaposition of Naruto and Mario. We all know him as the happy friendly ninja guy, now he's the Japanese Soprano guy, dark, cynicle, perverted, bloody, etc. The mario fellow seems like a very interesting protagonist, not that the over-used, bland, 1 dimension, nice guy stereotype we too often see. This gives him plenty of room for development
