Shonen Jump Thread 2:The Last but probably not really though

Naruto was dumb, Bleach was a cheep-out, and One Piece wasn't there.

Also World Trigger, Assassination Classroom and Others.

So is this the Naruto series really ending or are they setting up for a whole new series?

How much of a dick is Yhwach and how useless are the ones left behind?

How much more tragic will Law's backstory be?

Let's talk about these things and more!

Then he gets Kankuro to fix him up with a Puppetmail arm and leg, and he and Susanoo!Sasuke go on wacky adventures trying to find the Philosopher's Chakra.

Kishimoto's art has been in a state of decline for years. He's basically inking with sharpies at this point.

Anyway some of the kids' designs are deeply ugly, but the Ino/Sai kid is far and away the worst. Maybe it would look less awful in black and white where Sai's sickly skintone wouldn't conflict so much with that bright orange hair, but as is it just looks awful.

I hope Naruto is less of a terrible fucking deadbeat than Minato turned out to be in a clutch.

Who's meant to be the mother of Lee's kid? Tenten since she appears in her shop on the very next page?

How old is fucking Tsunade meant to be by the epilogue? Without her false youth disguise she'd be sweeping the floor with every step.

The ending was certainly brief compared to how they had been dragging the entire series out till this point, all the skyscrapers were weird despite the timeskip.

Because Sakura's not really the mother, obviously. Perhaps, something, something what do you mean Sakura's not really a part of the Uzumaki clan like Karin? something, something.


Also, I really, REALLY hate that Sai ended up with Ino. It's completely senseless. All the other pairings were either implied (Lee/TenTen, Shikamaru/Temari in spades) or plausible, but not Sai. He's an asexual like Gaara is, so I can't see him ever reproducing; it just seemed as if Kishi shoved him in with Ino because there wasn't anyone else left. It's just a front. He's going all Brokeback Mountain with Suigetsu when nobody is looking.

Here's your explanation for Sai/Ino: Despite everything you would think, Kishimoto clearly demonstrated during the whole Danzou thing that she is not even remotely over Sasuke. And Sai is Sasuke Lite in every single way. He was brought into the series, diegetically and non-diegetically, to replace Sasuke.

Everything about his quick and total redemption, the 'romance' with Sakura and hell everything that little group of his 'Hawk' which were casually discarded by him but returned like obedient slaves did over the course of the series seem so nonsensical and awful.

Though if we're talking about bastards in this getting rewarded would be sorta amiss not to mention Orochimaru and Kabuto who got off lightly too despite all the flat-out evil and twisted experiments they had performed and all the innocent lives they had destroyed in their time, wandering away scotfree more powerful and immortal than ever.

So many bad guys in this series got 'redemption' and the heroes suddenly acting like they were the best people ever and completely ignoring all the nonsensically twisted and villainous stuff they had done beforehand.

It's too much to expect Kishimoto to have a coherent and well-planned-out ending, redemption or not. The thought was probably "Oh, 700 chapters, that's a good number to end on! But I just started this fight between Naruto and Sasuke... well, I'll just wrap that up real quick, no biggee."

The difference here is its not the quality of the ending's writing, the only reason these particular people are bitching is because they are hardcore shippers who didn't get what they wanted just like say the Zutarians at the end of Avatar.

If that only difference had been Naruto hooking up with Sakura instead of Hinata with no other changes they would have praised the ending as being excellently written.

It's not homophobic to not end that way, but you have to admit--the relationship between Naruto and Sasuke was given far more attention in the actual show than that of Naruto's relationship with either of his potential love interests. I can see someone making the argument that the emotional payoff of a Naruto/Sasuke hookup would have been more earned than that of any other pairing Naruto could end up in. Which is not to say I like the pairing (Hinata's by far the most likable of Naruto's potential love interests), but given the story we were forced to sit through, the Sasuke Route would have been one of the few ways to justify those two's fucked up relationship over the course of the story.

Thats just Kishi being a terrible writer, especially when it comes to characters interactions and their actions.

Look at Minato, cunt that killed himself because he couldn't be bothered to be a single dad, shushing his wife even as she tried to tell him how crazy and unnecessary that was.

Third Hokage, useless old bastard who didn't do a damn thing right, not with the village and not even looking after the kid of his successor properly (Also it makes no sense that people didn't realize he was the 4th's son, despite looking so much like him, and being the one with the demon sealed in him just like the 4th's wife had in her previously which is the whole reason they resented him, he even had his mother's surname)

Jiraiya, Naruto's Godfather, turns out to be another scumbag. Instead of being a kindly, crazy old wise man who took up this bright looking young man out of interest, he's a fucking asshole who completely abandoned this little baby who was his godson, did nothing for him all the years he was completely alone and crying to himself in his sleep. Its even more nonsensical with the reveal he was willing to take care of three random brats for three years that had no relation to him?

Itachi, the manga fellated him heavily when he cam back as a zombie but it does nothing to change the fact the things he did were not only villainous but also stupid and detrimental to what he states as his true goals. Trying to turn him into a saint after all that was nonsense.

Obito, dubbed by the hero as "the coolest guy", actually a total monster and whiny prick who's petulance lead to massacres of countless innocent people amongst other crimes just because the chick he was obsessed with as a kid died.

As another example of Kishi's poor character writing,
the whole reason this movie is coming out (explicitly called a love story showing things coming to a climax) and the epilogue was so brief is because he's admitted he can't write romance well(/at all).
The reason side characters are more likeable in the series is because they have to suffer through less chances of being written by Kishimoto, have a cool moment or two to stand on and a likeable basic character without plot cancers growing through them.

I think that the whole "keep stretching the manga out as long as it's popular thing" that hits every shounen writer hit Kishi particularly hard. It's pretty obvious with the way the story constantly folds back on character development and plot in order to keep it going. Bringing popular characters back, reusing plotlines, etc etc.

I know it's not anime, but the only thing I can compare it to is House MD. Where you kept waiting for the main character to become a better person and make some progress with his life. And every season finale you would see some progress only to have it all reset, and by reset I mean crash and burn, the next season and go back to the status qo. Except in Naruto it happens on a plot-wide scale.

Despite its faults though, I was honestly satisfied with the ending. I think I'll enjoy it a lot more when the animators and sound team have a crack at it though, and hopefully expanding on some scenes and things that were left unexplained.

He wrote himself into corners for the sake of keeping the story going, and when it came time to tie everything together no one could have done it in a satisfying way.

I don't want to sound like the shippers, but the character design for Sarada could be seen as proof of this. It's like he designed a character to be Sasuke's daughter in advance. But as he wrote the final arcs even he didn't know whether he was going to have Sasuke end up with Sakura or Karin. So he left the design ambiguous enough to be changed around with minor alterations depending on how it turned out.

Yeah, no kidding. Honestly, honestly, he sort of blew Naruto becoming hokage too. Naruto's desire to be hokage was never about the office itself, it was about Naruto attaining social acceptance. He wanted to be hokage because everyone had to respect and accept the hokage.

But the thing is, Naruto already has that. After the Pain arc there was no way around the fact that he was an accepted and even honored part of the village. That narrative arc was closed. Which makes Naruto actually becoming hokage just a piece of empty formality, devoid of any real impact.

Except that's nonsense, it turns out he's the prophesied child of destiny who is also the reincarnation of a legendary figure and is part of a noble clan and bloodline.
It stopped being about hard work when he got handed multiple powerups just because of who he was.

DudeWithMoney is also right, if Naruto had NOT become the Hokage and been living happily in the end at having the respect of others and a loving family that would be an ending that showed meaning.

I bet if Naruto had been a girl, and her interaction with Sasuke was left as-is: constantly going after him, refusing to believe he was irredeemable even to the point of physical danger, no matter how bad he hurt her and turned his back on her, some of the same Sasuke x Naruto shippers claiming homophobia would be throwing around words like "problematic" or "sexist." Hell, I bet there's people saying that about Sakura now, for marrying the guy...

Straight out, those two had a pretty abusive and toxic relationship for a really long time, but then they blew off each other's arms and I guess he worked it out of his system?

I know The Last is being written by a different team,* but I'm 100% certain it's impossible for a single movie to redeem literal years of Sasuke mercilessly trying to kill the protagonists and bring the world to its knees.

*Different Team or no, I want to see Hinata actually be useful. It'll be kinda pointless if she isn't at least capable of holding her own in a fight.

Yeah, that's actually a big problem I have with the ending. I'm a NaruHina guy myself, but I would have accepted a Sakura ending if that fake confession of hers was actually sincere. Having Sakura realize the guy she's been crushing on since she childhood was actually an psycho and that she needed to move on would have been a fascinating development for her. Along with her realizing her true feeling for Naruto as an adult.

I'll admit I'm not a fan of Sakura, but I didn't like how her questionable devotion to Sasuke was rewarded in the end.

>I know The Last is being written by a different team,* but I'm 100% certain it's impossible for a single movie to redeem literal years of Sasuke mercilessly trying to kill the protagonists and bring the world to its knees.

The M.O. for the movie, though, is just establishing Naruto and Hinata's relationship as lovers. The only thing I'm expecting from the film, regarding Sasuke, is when he and Sakura fucked. Because right now the only thing we have going is that "Boom. You're pregnant" edit.

>I want to see Hinata actually be useful.

One of the leaked images from the movie had her with super Byakugan, so it looks like she will keep up.

This is stupid. The entire POINT of Brolly's Legendary Super Saiyan form was that it was a transformation unto itself that had no limits; his power level basically just kept on rising the longer he used it. After the zenkai he got being smushed by the comet and crashing onto Earth, it even exceeded the level of a Super Saiyan 2. Having him transform into SSJ3 or 4 is not only ridiculous, it misses the point.


>Frieza

Okay, I'm honestly really curious about this one. Excepting Yamcha and possibly Krillin, there isn't a single major character in the series that couldn't solo Frieza, hardly trying, at this point. Even Goten or Trunks could manage if they turned Super Saiyan. Goku, Vegeta, and Gohan wouldn't even HAVE TO turn Super Saiyan!

So I'm guessing he's going to somehow have some kind of Cooler-ish transformation that enables him to magically reach the power level of a Super Saiyan 3. Ugh...

In the 12th movie, Gohan didn't even go SSJ before he one-punched Frieza into dust.

Why? Why? Why are you crying so?
I know all that you went through, you waited so long
Why? Why? I took so long getting to you?
How could I not realize? I finally found you…
It was hard to find

Now my feelings are different
My heart wants to be with you
You’re my other half
In a slip to the stars.

Why? Why? Why that expression?
You don’t have to worry anymore
Why? Why? …
All this time I did not see you
My feelings were confused

I just needed a because to love
A simple decision that I should have taken
Enjoy life with you
You’re the perfect person

That lifelong wait
I promise I’ll protect you
You are the star that shines on my sky
My heart will follow you to the end

No matter what happens
We can overcome anything
That’s what I want…. It’s what I want
That I want to do.

My heart wants to be with you
You’re my other half
In a slip to the stars …
We will face anything
And nothing will stop us …
Nobody can. Nobody can.

Man its getting really pathetic with the shippers in regards to the new naruto movie, they are going MAXIMUM ZUTARIAN.

They are intentionally going out of their way to pick out negative Japanese comments and try and claim thats proof that all Japan hates the new movie/Naruto & Hinata getting together, or that it isn't making any money despite making as much money as the previous film did over time on its opening night alone.
Also trying to claim that voice actors are in revolt and refuse to do more work because of particular characters not getting together.

Somehow this seems even worse than those people starting petitions to try and get the movie banned in the west or force Kishimoto to change the ending, its like they think they can sneakily alter reality if they get enough people to believe their propaganda.

Infinity Girl is awesome, doesn't matter how buff they be she can toss them into the stratosphere! I also like her massive megaman boots.

Something that came to me in the current issues that I should probably spoiler it makes sense that the majority of the villains attacking the heroes are just chumps who can get taken down by the young heroes. Think about it, in this world the majority of people have a superpower or 'quirk'.
They can throw on a costume based around a theme and commit crime but it doesn't mean they are going to be good in a fight or their quirk is particularly useful for combat and criminals don't have to be disciplined or be impressive enough to get into special training schools so they end up just being henchmen called up by other villains simply with flashier outfits. Basically in this world most of the mook villain henchmen are superpowered where in other comic universes would just be common thugs.

Source? Though I've no problem believing it.

He must have stolen someone's proposal when he created Naruto. He gave us this large world with an expansive set of characters who have a tone of potential... then spends 90% of the series focusing on Ninja Jesus, Ninja Judas, and their deus ex hacks while shitting all over the world, including his own canon.

That seems to happen quite often. Not developing stories beyond the premise. I agree the idea BEHIND Naruto is great - Ninja town and ninja school... but its wasted.
Same with stuff like Battle Athletes, and I'd even go as far as to say Sword Art Online or whatever that's named.

While it's true that failed potential is not a rare thing, Kishimoto seems to be especially good at it. Also, most stories start off with a small-ish group and gradually open up. Hunter x Hunter is a good example of this, I think; at least, from what I recall, it built up into the lumbering canon that it is now.

Naruto, on the other hand, tried to do a dozen main-ish characters from the start with heavy influence by secondary characters (Iruka was a large part of the very, very early story, but then just popped up whenever Kishi wanted to Naruto an extra reason to up the hax) and in the end almost none of them got any character development.

I think one of the things about Hero Academia that makes it so strong a series is it's civility.

A lot of jump goes for that crazy "SHIT IS SO SERIOUS, NOW WATCH ME MORPH INTO CHIBI" comedy style.

Hero Academia doesn't really do that and things flow much more fluidly and organically than in most Jump.

Take your own advice and follow the string of posts, the only 'character designs' being discussed are the superhero versions of the creator's assistants, who were likely designed by the assistants themselves since they were just being used as a shout-out to them in some bonus page.
The assistants quite likely submitted their own designs for themselves for the shout-out instead of the the creator designing them, how much simpler can I make it.

Explain this to me, because this is what I'm hearing on /a/: There was a scene in the Bleach anime where Ichigo and Orihime held hands, after the Grimmjow fight. That moment wasn't in the manga and Kubo got mad, leading to the scene being removed in future re-broadcasting. Later on, there's a filler episode that's basically IchigoXRukia and it has the two of them holding hands. Kubo's response is that the animation is beautiful. Is this right?

I stopped following the series during the Soul Society arc, so I have no clue about this situation.

I'm catching up on the Fairy Tail anime (dub is available on Hulu and it's good for background noise) and just got to the time skip. Stupid. I do recall people complaining, but was it as badly handled in the manga? It was simply one episode things are normal, then sunken island at the end, then next episode we're seven years later, and in 20 minutes everyone is back and okay because herp-derp they were sleeping. Not even a change of wardrobe, which is surprising considering how often they do so in this series.
