Naruto Gaiden review 2015
Indeed Kishimoto-sensei left quite a lot of feelings in chapters 699-700, but he also left a lot of questions and knots that were left untied.
Naruto Gaiden: the Seventh Hokage is set out to answer partially those questions and introduce the next-gen characters, Boruto and Sarada.
Boruto and Sarada need no presentation, as they are the sons of NaruHina and SasuSaku.
Boruto seems so far like a spoiled self-entitled brat, but never the type of fugly-crazy-charismatic brat that his father was, who had a dream despite his limitations, and that’s what made you instantly root for him to win.
The first thing Boruto does is to slam his father as a nonsense sprouting old man, even in the trailer for the upcoming movie. Where’s Hinata to teach him some manners too? Doesn’t Boruto know what his father went through to get to where he is?
Maybe that’s the plot: everyone sees Boruto as a spoiled brat who will never live up to his father, the Konoha Hero. He has to prove the contrary so that everybody recognizes him.
