I always felt spoiled, since I almost always had two translated versions of the manga, and two different fansubs to compare against back in ye olden days when official subs were usually much later to arrive and often sub-par.
I'm just even more stoked about the Rasengan, because two of his other players are in on the anime touchdown celebrations with him now! I can't even imagine what sort of shenanigans they're gonna come up with now that he's got a squad.
I saw that, and figured that that means it's finally time for me to start watching through it for real. I think I'll dive in on it after the simul-dub of MHA wraps for the season. Cool that it's hitting the NA audiences en masse now though.
This interview about the thematic differences between Naruto and Boruto is really interesting. Naruto was mostly all about overcoming loneliness and understanding the ways that others face those fears and express them differently, whereas Boruto is more about how to define yourself from under the shadow of another (which Naruto avoided by not knowing who his parents were) and proper use of technology and things: https://comicbook.com/anime/2019/01/06/naruto-boruto-anime-manga-differences/
So, Boruto is a lot more slow moving than Naruto, and it's got a very different focus, but I feel like the manga has finally hit its REALLY big milestone where I think that the series is absolutely worth diving into and checking out now. There are enough hooks into the mysteries going on, but now there's enough context to feel like you've got a better sense of what's going on and enough to feel more of the weight behind the events.
I haven't kept up with the anime at all really, but I'm wondering if anyone else will be / has been and has any thoughts on it.
Finally got around to seeing the last Naruto movie. As much as I enjoyed seeing hinata and Naruto fall in love it felt almost hollow in the way in which they did it. The whole looking into memories thing irked me as I kinda felt we needed hinata to overcome her shyness and tell him outright or for him to finally realise himself just how much she has always been there for him.
I also really wish we got to see more character developments leading to boruto.
I can't be the only one who wants to know how the hell Sai ended up with Ino.
