So thoughts on the new arc announced at Jump Festa? Is it filler or do we consider it canon since Pierrot intends to continue Naruto anime.
I know but I was just wondering how they would handle the pacing and structure of the anime with this new filler arc. I originally thought they would just end the anime since the manga ended.
Have you watched Bleach anime by pierrot? they literally said at the mid point of one canon arc:
"Hey, lets tell a different story we forgot to tell"
Then a fucking filler arc started in the middle of another arc, once the filler finished they returned to the actual arc.
I dropped the bleach anime right there
>pacing is still god awful in the anime
>more filler arcs
For what purpose?
Thats not the main problem.Anime can have their own ending and route but why you concern about this?Except studio pierot said anime will had different result,I don't think rarely anybody 'care' about 'the story'.
Apparently the filler takes place between the two years that Naruto was training and the other took the Chunin exam. They should have given the characters a middle look between part 1 and part 2 opposed to just their part 2 look. It is what it is, not like I intend to watch it.
so they are actually going to address Fu as a character? might be interesting.
In January, Naruto Shippuden will be telling the story of the Chunin Exams that took place during Naruto’s absence from the Hidden Leaf Village. This is the first since the incident with Orochimaru and Gaara, now Kazekage, is looking to make things right. With the help of the Leaf, the Hidden Sand Village will take on the responsibility as host. Unbeknownst to Gaara, Tsunade, and the ninja participating, there is danger on the horizon as an ominous figure approaches from the shadows. What is their objective? We’ll have to find out in the Naruto Shippuden Chunin Exam filler arc. Among the ninja in the arc are Sakura, Hinata, Kiba, Shino, Choji, Neji, Rock Lee, Tenten, and Jinchuriki Fuu.
In the new Chunin Exams, ninja from other villages will be participating. From the Hidden Grass Village (red section) its Kasami (the man with the hair), Burami (the larger fellow), and Muyami (the boy with the glasses). From the Hidden Sand Village (green section) the participants are Yome (the girl with pig tails), Tsura (the man), and Sen (the girl with the fan). The Hidden Leaf Village (blue section) will also have three ninja aside from those we’re accustomed to seeing and they were in the series’ first Chunin Exams: Gennai (the man similar to Iruka), Komugi (the older fellow), and Inaho (the woman).
will neji gonna appear in the next movie?
That poster is so fucking weird. Regardless, it looks like it might be alright. Fuu's a character I've always wanted to see more of.
I wanna see the adventures of Ghost Neji.
A have a theory that all good ideas are thrown out by the request of the Author of the series because he hates the anime.
No author wants people to say "The Anime was better", so they purposely make all fillers suck.
I can imagine Kishimoto going:
"So, that idea about the background about the chuunin exams for the other teams? Throw it out. People dont want that. People want Curry. Yeah. Curry...of Life. Yeah. And Naruto making ramen...with rasengans. Ramen...rasengans. It's like poetry, it rhymes."
THEY DO IT ON PURPOSE.
This will likely have a bigger budget but probably not as big as the Chikara arc since that took the place of a movie.
It's a bit weird to put Fu in though since unlike Utakata, she didn't make any mention of Naruto already knowing her name. Still, I liked the Jinchuuriki charaters so I guess it's not bad for filler to focus on them. Utakata's arc was a little boring though.
>unlike Utakata, she didn't make any mention of Naruto already knowing her name
My guess would be that she met someone else and not Naruto himself. She seems fairly young, maybe she was in the exams.
I want this so she could have a bug face-off against Shino.
>I want this so she could have a bug face-off against Shino
>SP teases Fuu and Shino throughout the whole arc
>tfw you already know she gets captured and killed by Coolest Guy
>tfw the only girl who'd raise Shino's larvae is dead
To be fair, the Naruto manga world can go in a hundred different directions that are about a 1000x less retarded than canon plot.
Pacing will probably still be terrible though. Since it's like a C or D class studio at Pierrot that animates Naruto, while their A and B class teams do the good stuff.
Nothing as good as that, I'm afraid. I only know that the title is something like "Unaware of Love" or something.
You forgot to actually say what the filler is about.
It takes place 6 months before Shippuden, it's the Chunin Exam where Sakura and the rest of the rookies graduated.
They will have rivals from Konoha (including some canon characters that failed the written exam) and from other villages (fillers and Fuu, who will probably get captured).
Gaara will be the one organizing the exams in Sunna
Why is Sakura so much better as a nee-sama character to Hinata than as anything else?
>Fuu as a nee-san character
>Finally someone with the exact same interest as Shino
>Shino started to open up
>Left the chuunin exams as good friends
>Fuu is killed offscreen
>Shino never heard from her again
>Still waiting for her to return even in 700.
Apparently the main gist of the doujin is Naruto caring a lot about Hinata even before he realized he loved her.
I hope Naruto develops an upper arm fetish.
>no Uncle Neji
>no batty grandma Kushina
>no Han as Lurch
Thanks, Coolest Guy.
I hate that that guy took a full picture of Sasuke's family but not Naruto's.
I guess it's just not interesting.
We still don't know who's with Naruto on that Secret Poster, do we?
There was a poster of Naruto holding hands and runnng (on a field?) with someone blocked out with a big black SECRET before the movie aired.
It gav the most delusional NSfags a sliver of hope and it baffled a bunch of people because both NH and their kids have already been shown, so what the fuck's the point in hiding anything.
We never got a revelation on what SECRET was.
They're probably the softest in the whole village.
>implying it wasn't actually Madara
Nips have legendarily shit taste. It's why a wimpy Gary Stu like Kirito won Newtype's male protag contest.
And if you go by the panel underneath the Uzumaki pic looks way better with more effort.
Naruto's the closest thing to Hashirama he's got now.
I lied. It's actually Kaguya.
Which is kind of odd, she should have biceps like iron since she's primarily a physical fighter and generally very physically active and fit.
Chakra don't have to explain shit, I guess.
>implying Hinata isn't healthy as fuck
She mainly sits on her ass and trips over her own feet. She's the softest girl in the whole village.
Because Hinata makes everything better.
>Thanks, Coolest Guy
Speaking of Coolest Guys, what exactly was the point of the whole Tobi disguise again? Was he just bored and decided to fuck with one of the more high-strung members?
It's not like Tsuande isn't probably soft as fuck herself, and she's even more of a brute force fighter than Hinata.
Hell, 10/10 or Temari seem the most slender of the women on the show and they are both distance fighters who don't do melee shit.
Pretty sure one of the Ninja Storm games even made a short bit off of the issue of the kunoichi having to balance being a good fighter yet keeping oneself feminine.
Haku drops by and schools them all.
Her muscles are like water, flexible and soft, strong and swift.
Kishi wants us to believe it's the Sharingan but everyone knows that's a load of shit and the Uchiha just can't play nice.
I like to think he was just dicking around because he had some free time. Makes Obito seem like less of a sourpuss.
>Haku drops by and schools them all
Just goes to show that boys are better at everything.
Including being girls.
>It's not like Tsuande isn't probably soft as fuck herself
Of course she's soft. Just look at the size of those puppies.
What the fuck is Burrito wearing?
Shy girls don't tackle their fathers' legs as soon as he gets home.
Maybe... he's the Damian Wayne of the Naruto universe.
Dissapointed: the filler isn't about what happends between The Last ending and the wedding
The expression is not so different from Naruto trying to look tough as a kid.
Also no one can outedge Sasuke, no matter what trenchcoat they use. If you doubt that just re-read the Kage Summit arc.
At least he isn't a cackling retard though.
The second pic's a tracksuit.
That's for basic bitches who can't Rasengan. He's gonna add Lightning chakra to that bitch.
I'm not gonna lie. I'm looking forward to Bolt because he seems so different than his father. Also, is his VA really Konohamaru's? Seems strange for his character.
>The Uchiha are no longer the edge
To be fair, young Sauce was shotacon bait or a tsundere kid trying to act tough.
Poor Salad's got her work cut out for her.
Pink's genes really pacified 'em, didn't they? Uchihas went from Madara to this.
>Kishi likes Sakura more than Hinata
They made the perfect daughteru. Bolt is like an exact copy of his father, Sarada is unique and adorable.
>Kishi likes Sakura more than Hinata
That's fine with me. We all know what happens to Kishi's "favorites".
They really are.
The worst is yet to come, my friends. If NH are getting a third babby, SS will likely be blessed with a second.
They are at peace time with a giant city at the back
So Bolt, who wants to go to crazy adventures like his dad but can't, turns chuuni and dreams to be a hard-boiled detective and find trouble himself
>implying Kishi would be able to resist the temptation to make a male Sakura just to fuck with everyone some more
Salad already took all the Sauce genes. All that's left are Pink's.
>People thought the next Indra/Ashura is Bolt/Sarada, so both Naruto and Sasuke tried to get them closer
>They do get closer and become best friends
>But Naruto and Sasuke missed one part
>That of a jealous younger sister
>The next Indra vs Ashura is Himawari vs. Sarada
>Indra/Ashura rivalry is always between the same genders.
Now that the everything has cooled down and Avatar'ss ending shifted the attention, looks like a February release won't cause any awkward moments from those crazy shippers
Speaking of her, I wonder what roll she'll play in the manga. Himawari's sensei perhaps?
>that little segment about the Hyuuga's eyes
Hmm, I wonder if that means Byakugan for the kids is still go. He doesn't appear to put much emphasis on eye color at all.
>Salad already took all the Sauce genes
But who's genes will come out on top when her DNA compete's with this guy's?
>Bolt isn't a social retard like his father
>fucks both Salad and his sister
>implying SP isn't going to tug on your heartstrings again with his death
Because blood is thicker than water.
I dislike what Sauce turned into but I always liked Sakura even if she's the least interesting in this manga, she turned into something great. And I knew she'd make the perfect mother and the perfect daughter. Her dream was a life full of love, or some shit like that. Of course her kid would turn out perfect.
>Sarada for 9th Hokage pls
>Konohamaru will be 8th
>Burrito's a shoe-in for 9th
>Mirai will be 10th
>then Burrito and Salad's kid for the 11th
Makes sense. She's both Asuma and Kurenai's, so it could go either way.
He's doing a lot better than Nurudu at that age. Not a single orange jumpsuit in sight.
