Boruto Naruto the movie spoilers + news + speculation 2015

Boruto Naruto the movie is due to premiere in Japanese theaters on August 7 of this year.

The future of the Naruto franchise depends on the success of this movie.

But for the moment Kishimoto-sensei himself has no plans for a continuation story in manga beyond Naruto Gaiden.

And I can hardly blame him, working for 96 hours a week, for 16 years straight and ultimately getting backlash from fans that didn’t get their ship pairing made a reality.

And in the process he left out in the open quite some questions that we may not see answered for a long, long time.

Finally the movie got a US release date on October 10th, Naruto’s birthday, as Kishimoto-sensei will attend NY Comic Con during those days.

Among other good news is that we’ll definitely know more about Mitsuki and his abilities in this movie:

Deemed as a brilliant shinobi, Mitsuki remains a mystery with his calm and composed behavior, quite the contrast to Boruto and Sarada. Seemingly his main ability is to stretch his limbs to imprison his oponents.

Does this sound quite familiar to you??

Axent Wear cat ear headphones are a roaring success

Nekomimi headphones: the campaign raised $3.4 million and they will be released on November 2015

Since the launch of their campaign on IndieGogo,  on November 2014, these superbly designed cat ear headphones are not only about aesthetics, but also about quality.

That’s why their manufacturers have strived all the way to find a decent factory to produce them with the highest standards.

you just can’t deny the amazing design concept here

What I love is how they kept updating their buyers through Tumblr with their situation and made everything clear from the beginning.

Naruto Gaiden spoilers chapters 9 and 10 and speculation (end)

Naruto Gaiden spoilers chapters 700 + 9 and 700 +10

(Updated on July 14th, 2015, edit: it seems that the spoiler tidbits for the ultimately non-existant chapter 11 were left out for either the movie or the Boruto manga)

So, this is pretty much the end of the ride.

Shueisha announced a week ago that chapter 10 would be released on July 6th, and that’d be it, as Naruto Gaiden is slated to have only one volume.

Then it seems that it won’t have a third part after the Scarlet Spring, as it was originally announced.

Now it seems that there was a last minute editorial decision to have chapter 10 this week.

In Chapter 9 you see that the saga is near closure as Sakura battles Shin and his clones.

Shin pulls out a ton of blades from his body and attacks her.

Sasuke is taking everyone to Shin’s hideout in a flying Susanoo and arrives to the place.

Sasuke uses Amaterasu on the Shin guy to avoid some blades to get impaled on Sakura’s arm.

You know, the way Kishimoto is not using any background in these and other panels is quite telling.

Naruto Shippuden anime schedule July 2015 and news

The good news is that we’re finally back to canon!

(Updated July 16: episodes 420 and 421 were delayed to July 23 and 30, respectively)

naruto shippuden anime

Episode 418 “The Green Wild Beast vs. Six Paths Madara” (碧き猛獣VS六道マダラ」) July 2, 2015
Episode 419 “Papa’s Springtime of Youth” (パパの青春)   July 9, 2015
Episode 420   “The Eight Inner Gates Formation”  (八門遁甲の陣)  July 23, 2015 <—the badass fight of Guy vs. Obito
Episode 421   “The Sage of the Six Paths” (六道仙人)     July 30, 2015  <—finally the story of Rikodou Sennin’s origin?

Note: episode 420 was originally set to air on July 16, but it was delayed, the reason is because the animators took a break, just like last month.

But we’ll have a two hour episode special in the first week of August, thats why they needed to rest.

This month the battle against Madara finally continues with Guy giving his best shot, a quite a shot it is!

And if they put another Kakashi/Obito/Rin emotional flashback for the 575675t79678th time, I’m going to puke, and Sai will begin each episode with a monologue on how nobody has a penis anymore.

Naruto Gaiden spoilers chapter 8 and speculation

Naruto Gaiden spoilers 700+8

I know I’m late in posting this, but at least it will serve for those who haven’t arrived here yet.

Released today June 18th, Sarada is furious after her discovery.

Though frankly, I’m in wait and see mode, because I’m not entirely convinced she’s Karin’s daughter.

We all know Kishimoto’s trolling tactics by now.

Could Loveless manga end on Volume 14 or 15?

When and how could Loveless manga end?

The last time we’ve heard of this manga is that it resumed last year.

Author Yun Kouga indicated that she would work on it for 2 or 3 more volumes before ending it.

Loveless manga began to be serialized in 2001 by Zero Sum Magazine, and it has had quite an erratic schedule, as Kouga-sensei originally intented for it to have only 5 volumes.

It’s been on and off in hiatus and sidestories.

But the story itself is at a point in that it’s like even she doesn’t know where it’s going to go.

And it’s interesting because the singularity of this manga is that it’s like it still doesn’t decide if it’s a shotacon, a shonen-ai or a yaoi, or a magic shonen fight.

loveless manga

Who is Seimei? An Aizen-type character?

The only thing that seems certain is that it’s a psychological manga, with plenty of mind manipulation and mind bending concepts through the magic of words and language to determine reality.

The manga is currently licensed by Viz Media, and Volume 12, the latest, came out on August 12, 2014. It’s still not known when Loveless Volume 13 will come out in Japan.

Naruto Shippuden anime schedule June 2015 and news

Naruto Shippuden Schedule anime June 2015

Last month was a shy insinuation to canon, and definitely a trollage with the new OP, but this month looks like they could be full ahead and be serious for the first time this year.

Naruto Shippuden anime

Well, more or less…

Episode 415 “The Two Mangekyo”  (二つの万華鏡) June 4, 2015

Episode 416  “Formation: Team Minato” (i結成・ミナト班)  June 11, 2015 <–Yes, a flashback filler episode

(There is no episode on June 18)

Episode 417  “You’ll Be My Backup” (お前はバックアップだ)  June 25, 2015

And July seems promising, as it seems it will be about Guy’s moment in the battle against Madara.

Update June 24: here’s the schedule for July 2015 that confirms they’re going full canon:

http://www.mymangamarathon.com/2015/06/naruto-shippuden-anime-schedule-july-2015-news.html

My best guess is that they have been taking so long with fillers because they were awaiting for people’s reaction to Naruto Gaiden, which has been mostly positive and it is somehow a guarantee that Naruto will continue to be animated.

Discovering Boys Love manga: Recipe no Oujisama review

Welcome to the Nyaa!! Romance (Romantsu) section!

In this first edition there’s a new boys love manga that I discovered recently, which is Recipe no Oujisama.

Here’s one of the covers:

Recipe no Oujisama

Released on 2012 by author Junko, it was originally intended to be a one-shot, but as always, it got to 8 chapters, leaving fans craving for more, literally.

Also known as Prince of Recipe, it was serialized by BexBoy magazine between 2012 and 2013 with only 8 chapters. So far, it’s not known whether it would get an anime or even an OVA adaptation. It seems unlikely, but who knows.

The premise is much more than the typical roommates story, and the author is very clear at that in her linework, by giving a distinct touch to every character. You’ll see soon why.

Naruto Gaiden (2015) – review + news + spoilers

Naruto Gaiden review 2015 – Chapters 1 and 2

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.

naruto gaiden

This was Naruto’s original premise that made me care for the character

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.
