I hope the movie is better than that filler they gave us. They gave us 10 chapters to find out if Sakura is her real mom. They should have done the 10 chapters on how everyone was doing instead. We didn't even get to see Hinata or Naruto's daughter.

I am a Naruto fanboy. I will fight upon and die on this hill defending Naruto.

Now that being said, this is trash. Seriously, the art is garbage, the first chapter is just the first half of the Boruto movie, done worse.

Also, who signed off on these original characters, do not steal from the first couple pages?

MOD EDIT - removing images obviously from illegal sites

The art is pretty bad on some pages. There are some anatomy and perspective issues, as well as characters not looking their correct age or height. It's definitely a mixed bag.

Also, I don't understand why Mikio Ikemoto went with different character designs for the cast when this first chapter is clearly based on Boruto the Movie.

I'm just hoping things get better in the next few chapters.

I must say that although the series feels much different than Naruto, and looks different to boot~ (but NOT worse, as some claim)... I enjoy it MORE than the original somehow. More towards my taste buds.

I just want more of Boruto

To start off, Kishimoto is still supposedly going to be supervising the story, which could mean both good and bad things.

http://www.idigitaltimes.com/naruto-manga-one-shot-written-masashi-kishimoto-reveal-mitsukis-origin-523179

"Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto will remain on the creative team as a supervisor to the story. "

Like how the story is switching hands from Naruto to Boruto (and from Kishimoto to Kodachi), I can only hope another animation studio will take over doing the adaptation and will only animate canon material.

"According to the March 28 issue of Shonen Jump, Kishimoto’s Naruto one-shot will be titled “The Path Lit by the Full Moon” and will feature Mitsuki one of the newest generation of ninja."




TL;DR: Kishimoto is writing a new one-shot manga to explain the back-story of Mitsuki. Ukyo Kodachi is taking over the writing for Boruto while Mikie Ikemoto is going to do the art-work. Some spoiler stuff on those, both about Mitsuki and the first chapter of Boruto.

*sigh*

Heard this was coming out, stopped caring about Naruto years ago, but decided to see what this "sequel" was like......it was weird. I'm still not sure if it's good weird, or bad.....but it was weird.

They just need to let Naruto die.... I swear they will stretch this out until they get every cent of the fandom that is still left, it's pretty sad.

Disappointed most of the first chapter was boruto movie recap. But still more interesting see where it goes than most of the new anime and manga that's been coming out witch seems to almost entirely comprise of generic story arc sold to captivated audiences by absurd school girl sexual teases. If it end's up a new GT, oh well wasn't my production studio wasting money to put it out.

It's just bad trust me. I went back and looked at the artwork to see why it was bugging me so much and it looks so poorly drawn I've seen fan art that's looked better. Character's eyes frequently are pointing off in different directions some thing aren't properly shaded, Hinata looks blind for no apparent reason as does Boruto's sister in some panels, and if you want to be less technical the Boruto is flat out unlikeable to the degree that characters in the manga point out his flaws for significant portions of the first chapter. The chapter starts with Boruto himself saying how unlikeable he is at the start. This might improve over time but frankly it made me miss the good old days of Foodfight which at least wasn't trying to cash-in on a globally beloved franchise.

The art doesn't bug me, honestly. Unless it's chicken scratch like Attack on Titan I really don't care. I'm not an art nazi. What bugged me, was the story itself. The opening page basically says
The situations the characters are in feel really forced. I mean, what are the odds that the kids of the original ninja teams end up on the same teams as their parents? At the end of Naruto they show skyscrapers and advancement in technology (which I thought was bad then), and here they expand on it in a way that I'm like "Yeah I could see that, but why?" The time/setting/decisions of everything in this first chapter just feels so conflicting for me that I don't know what to make of it.

From what I've read of the first chapter, it looks like they're setting up a sort of "Twilight of the Gods" theme
for Boruto. Why else have the "flash-forward" that preceded the beginning of the main part of the story?
A shame that it basically tells us that all of what Naruto's generation was able to do leading up to Boruto's
story will get trashed, but I guess you can't have happy endings (even the bittersweet ones).
