  • More of the same, but at least they are sticking with the story. I think the art is starting to grow on me, slightly.

    • I'm here to inform you that the first volume of Boruto manga will be released in Japan on August 4, 2016. Based on that, we'll have four chapters so I think the movie will be covered at least in this volume.. So yeah, nothing changed at all.... -_-

      You're saying that the entire first volume of Boruto is just Boruto the Movie? Well, I can't say that I'm surprised.

    • Welp, that was a chapter. That's all I can really say about it.

      @AsianReaper Yeah, looks like Sasuke isn't just Indra's reincarnation...

      Right, like how the fk do you go from straight hair to curly hair? Don't get me started on Sarada's redesign. Seems like the Uchihas got a turn for the worst

    • I don't know...I don't think it's bad, but I also don't think it's worth celebrating about. It's Boruto The Movie the Manga - nothing more, nothing less. Since I haven't seen the movie yet, it's probably a bit more interesting to me than to those who already know exactly what's going to happen.

      But Sarada's design....yeah, I too don't like that. The rest is rather solid I think.

    • I'm okay with everyone's redesign, but Konohamaru's and Sakura's. Gosh it is hard to look at. As for what I think of the chapter overall, it was fine. A solid 3.

    • So basically, I don't need to watch the Boruto movie anymore, because this manga is the exact copy of it? Hurray!! What's next?? Manga chapters that are carbon-copy of all the other boring Naruto movies made so far?

        Loading editor
    • Not everyone has watched the movie. This is a way in which others can compensate. I mean the Boruto manga revealed some things we didn't know, like who was the new Ino-Shika-Cho's sensei. I see no problem with this. I mean if you are going to start off the Boruto series, why not start off with what started it all, the Boruto movie. We have maybe 2 to 3 more chapters of the movie recap, then it's all new from there. And if you are reading this chapter, you must know that from the first chapter, the first few chapters are going to be recapped from the Boruto movie so I don't know why you are complaining here.

      its terrible to do this. The Last was never redone in manga format etc, if people didnt see the movie then tough shit. No excuse for this garbage waste of time.

    • @Askin I'm quite sure I said I don't want you responding to me. I will say this however, the writers obviously aren't worried about The Last because it has zip to do with Boruto. Also, though it wasn't in manga form, The Last was chapter 699.5 as stated by Kishi. Your behavior is something that is unacceptable and you have been told to straighten up. You might have problems that you need to work out. I suggest you take the time to do so.

      So Kishi has already failed me with the latter stages of Naruto... then some Ikemoto man comes in with a weird design (I mean seriously, if you're going to take Dragon Ball Super's route by retelling the movie, it'd be apropos to go a step further and also just hire a fan artist that can mimic the original author's style (like Toyotaro mimicking Toriyama's style) - I am still trying to adjust to this new art style - Kishi's style may have also been unorthodox when Naruto first came out, but it at least had charm). Then Ikemoto fails us all by retelling the Boruto movie within the first 4+ months on top of that.

      I don't wanna prematurely lambaste this new series altogether but... ugh. Just ugh.

      So, about the chapter... yeah, nothing much to say really.

    • I noticed that the Uchiha tablet is now a monument outside. Was that in the movie? Cant tell.

      I liked the previous installment better because it had some new stuff. In this case, it's a slight re-ordering of scences but not much new. I am looking forward to the Chunin exams, since that's the part i expect to be the most renewed.

      Also, Kishimoto enjoyed drawign toes. It seems to be the new guy's "thing" is hair. I noticed some outrageous hair on people in background scenes, and i think it's his little "mark".

      I do like the...70's -ish hairstyles (or am i misreading that?). I think it fits the 70's -ish technology timeline. Konohameru's afro-ish look is good.

      I can't quite tell what the deal is with Sasuke, but i feel there's something...off. Is it the detailled Sharingan even from a distance?

    • What happens after the movie will be interesting. Boroto has one eye that can be turned into the Byakugan. I also wonder what type of marks he has on his hand. Besides one reason the characters are drawn similar bur different is because it was bone by Kishimoto's assistant. Hopefully the art will get better. However for the time being it will probably go over the movie.

    • I don't like this Boruto series so far. It changes a look of some characters (and I think all for worse, maybe except Inojin, but he was so awful it would be a miracle to make him look even worse), but the main problem is: it is just Boruto: The Movie as manga. I don't see a single scene added so far. Kinshiki and Momoshiki vs Bee is as short here as in the movie.

      Problem is - there is nothing alternative so far, it is just the same story with the same scenes.

    • I'm trying to figure out why this chapter is getting a zero. It's probably because it's a recap of the Boruto Movie. Just saying, that saying the chapter sucked, says that you didn't like the parts of the chapter that were in the movie because it is the movie in manga form with a few tweaks.

      I just looked at the page and no he has Sharingan in one eye and the Rinnegan in the other. There is only one circle around the pupil with the tomoe in his left eye, showing it is the Sharingan. Unlike the right eye that has multiple swirls around the pupil with tomoe. I suggest you look more closely.

    • What would be nice is if instead of recapping the whole movie, events that occurred within the timeframe that wasn't (at least not fully) in the movie (such as the exams) was covered. Then again, that'd require the mangaka to actually do storywriting. -_-

        Loading editor
    • @Ajr1218, to be fair we got a flash-forward to Boruto facing that one dude Kawaki, so we at the very least know Ike has a plan.

      @Rachin, I agree, this chapter didn't deserve a 0/5. I gave it a 3/5 because at the end of the day, even if the style is very different for my tastes, the artist is still a good artist. I can appreciate that.

      Rehashing the Boruto movie is just a way to show how the Manga style will differ from Kishi's work, so we can draw comparisons and figure out what this artist is about. I don't like his style for the series, but I can appreciate that he's good at what he does.

      previous chapter had new scenes. So presumably, this part of the movie had nothing to add. I'm interested to see what gets expanded the most, but almost certainly we'll see a significantly expanded chunin exams (Being almost universally considered the point where Naruto truly became good)

    • I think the movie part might have connection to the story line that is why I believe the author included this, of course this movie part is important to show Boruto's growth in manga, it will make sense later.

    • @AsianReaper, @Thekillman Lots of you think Naruto and Sasuke have equally strongs, but in reality it's not true, because they have the same quantity of chackra, but seen that the Chackra is not like Ki(the first is like to see someone who tries to write lots of letters with a pencil with a quantity of ink which cannot grow, while the second with a simple training can do it),Sasuke showed, with his ability to control his chackra, his real strengh. Naruto is not a good shinobi, for this reason he's weak.

    • Very minor piece of info from the Chapter 1 recap in WSJ: the markings on Boruto and Kawaki are referred to as "sigils" or "crests" (紋章, monshō), a term which I don't think has ever been used in the series, though it most likely just refers to their appearance.

      Good joke. The Boruto movie proves Sasuke's reserves are not even remotely comparable to Naruto's. They're not even comparable to a tailed beast like Gyuki.

      DarioAD wrote: Naruto is not a good shinobi, for this reason he's weak.

      Based upon...what? Naruto's weakness is that he cares. He cares about the village for instance. Momoshiki used this against him, forcing naruto to tank a supermassive Biju bomb. But if they'd been fighting in the middle of nowhere, Naruto would simply have deflected the blast.

      Naruto cares about a LOT more things than Sasuke, and all of it can be abused. Couple that with his inability to give up, and he can be forced to be self destructive.

      Naruto is stronger than Sasuke.

    • Then enlighten me if Sasuke has always been stronger than Naruto, why didn't he defeat Gaara and Haku back in Part 1, something which Naruto could do and why did Tobi say to Sasuke that Naruto was stronger than him after Pain's invasion? Also nothing in this chapter proved that Sasuke is stronger than Naruto so stop spreading false claims and remember this is a chapter discussion, not a versus discussion.

        Loading editor
    • @Dario I'm not saying that Sasuke isn't stronger than Naruto, but that this chapter doesn't prove that. I've read the chapter through and through. If you are talking about how well Sasuke fought Momoshiki, then that has nothing to do with Naruto because Naruto never got into a confrontation with him.

      @Sarutobi Naruto only beat Haku and Gaara due to him having the Nine-Tails. The Nine-Tails is part of him no doubt, but it's another thing entirely. It's not his power technically. The only times I accept Naruto using the Nine-Tails' poweri s when he has some control over the matter, albeit the Naruto during the war and so on.
