Well....

At least it will probably be better than what is currently airing.
But at the same time I've seen enough flashbacks about Itachi that I don't really feel like it will add much to the story.

They really are stretching out Naruto now. I mean, first is the filleryomi that is currently going on, then the rumored Boruto Manga, which isn't going to be canon by the way due to it not being written by Kishimoto himself, and now this.

Hey, maybe it'll be good because I will mostly end up watching, so I suppose I shouldn't complain too much..

^At least the Boruto anime will be something new.

But with Itachi, we know everything important about him from flashback arcs.
Hopefully it might add something, but I feel like it will just be Itachi fighting random filler villains.

I say we have an intervention for Kishimoto and Shounen Jump.

Maybe that will make them stop.

I'm like a year behind on Shippuuden and I would rather watch this Itachi thing than try to catch up.

The main reason Itatchi was such a great character was because he was always working behind the scenes. Putting him in the spotlight will likely be identical to the Kakashi/Tenzo Anbu arc we already saw. I'd hate to see one of the best characters repeating his famous Sasuke flashback again. I swear I know that flashback by memory now.

Pretty sure it's going to be a continuously of the regular series. Since this is canon, it means fillers will end by then.

Yeah pretty much ^ I think the filler will end right there and then. I'm expecting good art/animation for the canon material since they have had enough time to improve the canon material after releasing filler after filler now. Atleast, that's what I'm hoping for.

Either way, I'm pretty stoked for Shinden. More Itachi is always a good thing.

Were the novels written by Kisimoto himself?

So unnecessary.... Pierrot has milked the cow for all its worth. The cow is dead and they're just taking the excess milk from the corpse. I mean, it's absolutely pathetic, the manga has been done for while and we got a sequel movie already out and then we got a sequel anime to the movie already announced. Shippuuden is never going to end at this rate!!!
