Naruto's not over yet with new manga chapters, anime series coming soon! - RocketNews24

NG 3

Even though the manga that started it all ended last November, there’s been no shortage of things for fans of ninja franchise Naruto to enjoy since then. In addition to new episodes of the continuing TV anime adaptation, there’s been an animated movie and stage show, and you’d better believe plenty of people are looking forward to the upcoming Naruto Exhibition at art museums in Tokyo and Osaka.

Even if you’re of the mind that all the related events in the world can’t take the place of new comic content, there’s good news, as publisher Shueisha has announced a new, bonus installment of Naruto manga as it gears up for a shift in its anime focus.

According to the most recent issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, the comic anthology that was home to the Naruto manga for 15 years, creator Masashi Kishimoto is once again picking up his pen. This stint doesn’t look like it’ll be as long as his last one, though.

Shueisha says that Kishimoto is drawing a “short-term serialization” which will run in the double-issue of Weekly Shonen Jump that goes on sale April 27. The special edition is listed as both volumes 22 and 23 of the magazine, so it’s unclear whether the new installment will be one continuous chapter or broken into two sections that appear in different parts of the publication.

What we do know, though, is the title, Naruto Gaidenâ€"Shichidaime Haori to Hiiro no Hana no Tsuki, or Naruto Side Story-The Seventh Haori and the Scarlet Moon.

Artwork released ahead of the issue’s release seem to point to Naruto’s son Boruto, as well as rival Sasuke’s daughter Sarada, playing important roles.

Unfortunately, it looks like the Naruto Side Story is only sticking around for the single double-issue of Jump. You could speculate that its incredibly short run is just long enough to whet fans’ appetites for more ninja adventures without actually satisfying that craving, and you’re probably right.

But even that cloud has a silver lining. The newest issue of the magazine also mentions that a new Naruto anime, with Boruto as the main character, will premier in August.

▼ And if you’re looking for something to do while you’re waiting until then, there are 700 existing chapters of Naruto you could reread.

Boruto -Naruto the Movie-, the upcoming film sequel to the Naruto manga and The Last -Naruto the Movie-, will open in August. This new film will tell the story of [Highlight white text to read spoilers] Boruto (Bolt), Naruto Uzumaki and Hinata Hyūga's son who appeared in the 700th and final chapter of the manga. Kishimoto added, "I conceived a story in which Boruto and [Sasuke's daughter] Sarada appears. Sasuke and Sakura also appear." He also conceived of Boruto's special fighting move.

Kishimoto had said in an interview in November that he will still have other work left to do in the Naruto franchise until this summer, so he will not begin preparing his next non-Naruto title in earnest until after that.

'Naruto Spinoff: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring Month:' New Naruto ... - Design & Trend

(Photo : Shonen Jump) Although the original Naruto manga series ended recently, a new canon manga will be released for the popular ninja manga. Called “Naruto Gaiden: Nanadaime to Akairo no Hanatsuzuki.” Translated into English, it reads “Naruto Spinoff: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring Month.”

Although the original Naruto manga series ended recently, a new canon manga will be released for the popular ninja manga. Called "Naruto Gaiden: Nanadaime to Akairo no Hanatsuzuki." Translated into English, it reads "Naruto Spinoff: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring Month."

The issue will ship on April 27. The teaser reads: "Urgent News: The story enters a new generation..." Some fans speculate that the series will center around Naruto as hokage.

The spinoff was announced in November 2014 before the original manga series ended. News about the official date release comes from the 18th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump issue 22/23.

This release will coincide with the next upcoming Naruto movie, "Boruto: Naruto the Movie."

Initially, Naruto fans thought that "The Last: Naruto the Movie" would be the end of the popular anime. Turns out, it's not and it is actually the beginning of a new Naruto Era, called "New Era Project." According to Kishimoto, the next Naruto movie will center on "Boruto" (Bolt), Naruto's son with Hinata.

In the movie, Bolt will be joined by Sarada, daughter of Haruno Sakura and Uchiha Sasuke. Speculations are that Orochimaru may return as a villain. Perhaps Naruto will make an appearance as well and face Orochimaru.

This could be great as the two characters are offspring of the main characters, and it could be like a next generation rekindling of the former dynamic relationship the original three had.

Rumors are even swirling about the possible romantic tie between Bolt and Sarada.

Currently, Kishimoto is developing the characters for this next installment and is also working on Bolt's technique and ultimate move.

This upcoming movie will be the 11th edition of the Naruto the Movie series. The previous movie, "The Last: Naruto the Movie" featured Toneri Otsutsuki and the relationship between Naruto and Hinata.

The cartoon at the center of the case

Legal | A Turkish court has fined cartoonists Bahadır Baruter and Özer AydoÄŸan the equivalent of about $2,700 for a cartoon that allegedly implied that President Recep Tayyip ErdoÄŸan is gay. The cartoon, which appeared on the cover of Penguen magazine shortly after ErdoÄŸan’s election, showed him asking government officials whether they had prepared “any journalists to slaughter,” an allusion to ritual sacrifice. A citizen filed a complaint with the government, alleging the “ball-shaped” gesture that one character was making implied that ErdoÄŸan was gayâ€"an allegation the cartoonists denied. Nonetheless, the prosecutor charged both with insulting the president. The court agreed and sentenced them to 14 months in prison, then reduced that to 11 months because of the cartoonists’ “good behavior,” and finally commuted it to the fine. In a Kafkaesque twist, however, Baruter will now be tried on a new charge of insulting the prosecutor because, as part of his defense, he stated that the “wrong interpretation of the hand gesture by the prosecutor could be related to his subconscious.” [Hurriyet Daily News]
