Underwhelming is the word of the day.
I'm not saying it's bad or anything. I just expected more, and I think a lot of us were expecting at least some sort of payoff. Maybe if we'd known it was only ten chapters long, we'd have had less expectations and therefore, I wouldn't be feeling disappointed. When Naruto Gaiden was announced, I thought Kishimoto was going to go maybe 50-100 chapters long and we'd get some amazing drama. As it is... it's adequate enough. And since it was only ten chapters, I decided I'll just review them all at once.
|It's so pretty. Does the rainbow represent the freedom of gay marriage perhaps?|
|No seriously. The fandom believed that the glasses was proof that Karin was the mother... It's almost funny when you think about it.|
|Yes! Karin, that is the best line you've ever said in your entire life!|
|"Ah a fence! The perfect place to mark your grave!"|
|If I ever see another Sharingan-user after Gaiden, I am going to lose it.|
|Even Sarada cannot resist Chocho's charm.|
|Some lovely gore to turn you sadists on.|
|It's funny how hot he looks here but all the anime previews for Boruto make this guy look frog-like and scary.|
Orochimaru's appearance was very confusing and far more intriguing than Shin Uchiha could ever hope to be. I know that's not a fair comparison since Orochimaru is the best villain, but it's heavily implied he still does experiments and everybody just leaves him alone since he's apparently being passive and NOT murdering people for fun and bodies anymore. This gets even stranger when we see him and he's younger but won't explain why. This could potentially be a set-up for a really interesting plot in the future, where we discover Orochimaru is still stealing bodies and Suigetsu, Karin and Jugo are helping him but until then, Naruto's decision to only have Yamato (hooray for Yamato cameo!) spy on him is very odd.
|And I can't believe how much hotter you look now that you're supposedly a goody.|
|I'm so utterly indifferent to this film, it's astounding.|
On a last note, where the fuck were Hinata and Himawari?!
Summary Opinion: When the series focuses on Sarada and her drama, it's surprisingly good. It's well-written and pleasantly drawn, with only minimal complaints. When the series focuses on what feels like a half-assed villain plot, it opens up a plethora of plotholes and crap that nobody cares about. It's a build-up for the film, and that's pretty lame.
Overall Manga Rating: 3.5/5
Character of the Series: Sarada Uchiha. The greatest Naruto heroine of all the generations.
Predictions: The film is going to be okay. Nowhere near the level of recent DBZ movies but maybe higher than the level of most Naruto films. Boruto isn't going to get that much better but Sarada should hopefully remain good, unless the anime truly buggers her up... OH GOD, IT'S STUDIO PIERROT, RIGHT?! SHE'S DOOMED!
|Not sure if Kishimoto should thank the majority of his fans after their response to his ending... but I thank you for your flawed but brilliant work, sir.|
Born under the stars of the Dark Gods, Shiggins owns the power of the Great Eye and is utterly magnificent in his omniscience. If you dare to discover more about someone as great as him, then go ahead. And to all my friends and family members, YOU are wrong and I should be disappointed! Not the other way round!,.
