First Promotional Video Revealed For Boruto: Naruto Next Generation Anime

With every popular Manga comes a popular Anime series, and considering how popular Naruto still is even after it’s finale it’s only natural to assume that it’s Manga spin-off/continuation, Boruto: Naruto Next Generation, would too get it’s very own Anime adaptation. After Boruto: Naruto The Movie it was revealed that a Manga series based on the events of the film would be produced by Mikio Ikemoto and Ukyo Kodachi. The Manga, which has been running for a little while at this point in time, recounts the events of the latest film and continues onwards, telling a very familiar tale featuring some very familiar faces. TV Tokyo, who will be airing this new series, opened up a website yesterday dedicated to this upcoming Anime series. Alongside revealing the key art for the Anime, a promotional video was also posted, but it showed nothing more than scenes from both the original Anime and the aforementioned movie which disappointed some but still worked to build hype swell around a “franchise” with more than enough as it is. During this …

Humble Beginnings – A Look Back At Naruto: Ninja Council

There is something to be said about the evolution of Naruto video games overtime. They sure have come a very long way, developing into the unrivalled spectacle they now are today, with every iteration playing host to crisper graphics and the ability to experience some of the more outrageous events of Naruto’s fictional history. There is something that modern Naruto video games lack though; arguably, they have lost what was once most important to the series these games were based on…heart. While flashy graphics and cinematic battles work wonders to immerse players in the world of Naruto and it’s follow-up series Naruto Shippuuden, it seems as though these games have had to sacrifice their charming nature to do so. That’s not to say the newer Naruto titles aren’t worth the money you pay or the time put into developing them, this is simply what time and exponential curve in popularity does to a series, and it is during periods such as this that I like to reminisce upon the past, thinking back on the days wherein which a …

Naruto SUN Storm 4 Expansion “Road To Boruto” Set To Hit The West February 2017

I’ve said this countless times but some things truly never die, and one of them just so happens to be Masashi Kishimoto’s Shonen great Naruto. Despite the fact that the Manga ended quite some time ago, and the Anime is on it’s way out, people can’t seem to get enough of Naruto, and I totally understand why; it’s a pretty damn good series, despite it’s tendency to become too much of itself, but only in later story arcs…somebody stop me before I inject more personal bias into this article. The latest Naruto video game to be released was Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, also known as Naruto SUN Storm 4. This game, like it’s predecessors, came packed to the rafters with newly-added characters, story arcs, gameplay developments, and superior graphics, but the one thing it was missing was something many fans of the series truly hoped would be featured; Boruto. Now, before you begin attacking me; Boruto and Sarada were indeed released as playable DLC characters later on in the game’s early life, but that …

Naruto: Seventh Hokage And The Scarlet Spring – Review

The Last: Naruto The Movie, despite what the name suggests, was not the last Naruto…anything. In fact; it was the film that kicked off not only another short Manga run but another theatrical film titled Boruto: Naruto The Movie. Between the events of those two films lies the events of this here Manga; Naruto: The Seventh Hokage And The Scarlet Spring, which tells the tale of Sarada Uchiha’s search for who she believes to be her true mother. After the events of The Last: Naruto The Movie, it seems as though the the once-innocent child Ninjas of The Village Hidden In The Leaves all decided to begin procreating with their significant others almost immediately after the great war’s end. I suppose the removal of fear must be replaced with emotions just as powerful, and Lust…now that’s a big one! The issue with Sarada, the offspring of Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno, is that, well…she doesn’t believe any of this! After discovering a photograph of Sasuke’s old Taka teammate Karin, Sarada begins to believe that the …

Uzumaki Naruto: Illustrations (Art Book) – Review

Masashi Kishimoto: The man behind the adored Shonen Jump series Naruto. The world knows who he is. In fact; it’s harder not to know who he is than that of the inverse. Between the Manga’s first (published in 1999) and final (published in 2014) chapter, a lot has changed for this talented Mangaka. Not only did his writing style change over the many years of the series’ run, but so did his illustration skill, eventually coming to master the practice of sequential art in much the same way the legends before him had done. For the first time in SnapThirty history, and for the first time in my personal career as a pop culture-centric writer, I’ve been given the opportunity to review the, somewhat, collected works of Masashi Kishimoto in the form of the recently released Uzumaki Naruto: Illustrations art book which, as you may already know, is wonderous release dedicated to the illustrative work of Naruto’s Shippuden Era which spans from the titular character’s return to the village to his eventual role as the Hokage of …

Boruto: Naruto The Movie – Review

When it comes to a long-running series like Naruto, most reviews would begin with a brief history lesson; detailing it’s expansive lineage starting from 1999, but seeing as this movie marks the end of the series that started me on my personal journey to becoming what I am today and, hopefully, what I will be in the near future…I feel as though it deserves more than just a basic history lesson. Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto is the series that singlehandedly inspired me to want to both write comics and write about Japanese culture as a whole. It was the very first Manga I ever read, it was the first Anime I ever watched (knowing that it was indeed Anime), and it was the first piece of fiction to make me understand that we each live different lives that lead us in different directions, all of which are guided by our own choices. In the series, this was referred to as a “Ninja Way“, and I think that, without it, I would have never been able to …

Uzumaki Heads To Hollywood – Lionsgate To Make A Live-Action Naruto Film

Let’s be honest, reader…who the hell DIDN’T see this one coming? Of course there’s a live-action Naruto film in the works and of course it’s being made by a non-Japanese crew, thus is the fate of any popular Shonen series. Lionsgate Films, the well known studio, has recently announced that they’re currently in the process of making a live-action Naruto film. As of right now, production is very early on in the process, so early on that really only a director and producer have been attached to the project, alongside a few unimportant others. Yes, Masashi Kishimoto’s highly popular Shinobi-centric Manga series will, in due time, be hitting the streets of Hollywood with it’s very own live-action film set to be directed by Michael Gracey; a man I’m certain you don’t know or, at least, don’t know enough to be excited about. Gracey is being backed by producer Avi Arad who’s name you’ve surely heard thanks to his Marvel film-filled resume but, looking at the specific movies he produced…I can’t say it makes me any more …

Boruto: Naruto The Movie – Time To Meet The Next Generation Of Shinobi

Not half an hour before writing this article had I written another article regarding Boruto: Naruto The Movie and the official reveal of it’s antagonists. As any other fan of the series and of the upcoming movie, I believed this would be the most exciting piece of news to be revealed today…damn was I wrong. The very same issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump that only just revealed the identities of the film’s two antagonists also featured some very interesting and immeasurably thrilling images of the new generation of Ninja alongside their affiliations with one another. These new scans give readers a very nice look at some of the new kids, not just of Konohagakure but of the other, now-friendly villages from around the world of Naruto. Alongside Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki who’re the new Team 7 lead by none other than Naruto’s former small-time rival Konohamaru, come the rest of the kids set to feature as pretty heavy characters in the upcoming movie. From Kankuro’s son to the inappropriately-named Metal Lee, these news kids are looking even …

Boruto: Naruto The Movie’s Antagonists Finally Revealed

Basically, up until this point we’ve been given all the information about the upcoming Boruto movie that we need, apart from who the bad guys are…well today that’s exactly what has been revealed. I dont like to know too much about a film before going into it because, well…I want to actually enjoy the twists, turns, and shocks, I don’t want all that to be ruined by some pre-release promotional garbage. Thankfully, most things about Boruto: Naruto The Movie have been kept secret. Though I’m hoping we’re not given much more info than this: Momoshiki and Kinoshiki from the Otsutsuki Clan who will attack Konohagakura to attempt to extract Kurama (the Nine-Tails) out of Naruto and use him for their own evil deeds, much like countless Naruto enemies who came before them. This news, shown in Shueisha’s latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, also revealed who will voicing the two evil Shinobi: Hiroki Yasumoto will lend his gruff talents to Momoshiki and Daisuke Namikawa will lend his to Kinoshiki. Yasumoto you’d know from his work …

Boruto And Sarada Revealed As Characters For Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

You can’t get enough of Naruto can you? Nah, I didn’t think so. It’s fine, it’s fine, the world can’t get enough of Naruto so you’re very much in the majority here. The latest issue of Japan’s Weekly Shonen Jump has been released today and some fantastic world citizens have don’t the rest of us a solid by tearing out some pages from the new magazine, scanning them, and then putting them on the internet for the rest of us to see.

The originator of Chakra; Kaguya Otsutsuki has been revealed as …

Latest Boruto: Naruto The Movie Trailer Shows The New Generation In Action

It’s on days like these that I’m truly thankful that, all those years ago, I was introduced to the Shonen majesty that is Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto. Despite my more recent disposition towards the ending of the Manga, there’s still a great deal of my heart that is warmed by a piece of new media such as the brand-new trailer for the upcoming film Boruto: Naruto The Movie. The official website for the new film was updated today to include a trailer that happens to feature footage from the movie that has yet to have been shown in previous trailers and teasers. Despite the trailer being entirely in Japanese, it doesn’t take much brain power to figure out just what it is that’s going on within it. The new footage will get you old-school Naruto fans fired up as it throws back to the vibe of series’ beginning with the introduction of the kids of the new generation. It’s also super exciting to see Boruto in Naruto’s old gear as well as him using a pair …

All Six Paths Lead To Demise – Madara Confirmed As Playable Character For Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

There’s nothing better than a good video game, and every good video game always comes with an exciting and brutally powerful bad guy thrown into the mix to put the hero to the test. Originally it was Orochimaru who posses the biggest threat to our outrageous Shinobi hero Naruto…but that was some time ago. Massage Kishimoto, the creator of the series, kicked the snake man to the curb a long time ago and since then the spot of all-powerful antagonist has been filled by countless men and women all of which have fallen victim to the might of the ninja world’s greatest warrior. One of the final villains of the series, a man called Madara Uchiha, really made Naruto work for his heroic title and, if you ask me…he almost succeeded in his plan of utter world domination. Too bad the power of a Shonen hero is far too much for any bad guy to handle. Well Mr. Madara Uchiha being such a good bad guy, it’s only natural that he would appear in the …

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – First Look At Obito Uchiha 

Be honest; how well do you know Obito Uchiha? My guess is…not that well, which is fine because nobody knows him all that well. It’s kind of part of his charm as a bad guy. The problem with mystery is that, for the quizzical types like you and I, not knowing something about a character can be like a living hell! A week or so ago when Bandai Namco Games revealed that a gruesome Obito Uchiha fused with the plant man Zetsu would appear as a playable character in the upcoming fighting game Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. I found myself somewhat excited but also somewhat confused: What the hell will this guy be like to use? Will he fight like an Uchiha? Will he fight like a plant…man? I have no idea! Bandai Namco Games have today released a handful of screenshots alongside a nice character model of the new fighter that dont necessarily divulge any real information but they do show us what he’s going to be like in the game, which …

Obito Uchiha Revealed As Playable Character For Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

With any new fighting video game release comes some brand-new combatants to choose and throw down with. It’s exponentially more exciting when the fighting game series in question has been going on for many years and is based off of a series that has more unique characters than I’ve had hot meals. I bought my very first console with my own money thanks to the original Naruto Ultimate Ninja which had me captivated at first glance and despite my dislike for what Naruto has become I still find myself getting excited for every new release of the series so, as you can imagine, talk of Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 still gets me just as excited as it always has. Bandai Namco Games have been slowly but surely unveiling some of the upcoming game’s new characters and combat systems, and thanks to the latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump it has been revealed that Obito Uchiha will indeed feature as a playable character. We’ve seen him in the past as Tobi and even further in …

The Godfather Of Shinobi – Masashi Kishimoto Announced As Guest For New York Comic Con

I cannot stress this enough but…Naruto will simply never die! I know for a fact that I’ve written many articles in the recent past regarding the series and most of those articles start in, more or less, the same way. I usually talk about how Naruto, despite the main storyline Manga being finished and the Anime being on it’s way out, is still one of the most popular Shonen series’ of all time. This time around…I’m not going to worry about explaining that because, let’s be honest; if you don’t already know this by now than you’re simply not as big a Naruto fan than you think you are. We just saw the Western release of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump’s latest issue, which is published by Viz Media outside of Japan, and within the new edition comes a nice piece of news that sees the creator of Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto himself, taking a trip out to North America for the New York Comic Con festivities. Yes, you read correctly! Masashi Kishimoto has just been announced to be …

Kakashi’s Face Finally Revealed And It’s Just As Handsome As We Thought!

The day has finally come. It has finally come! Surely this means the apocalypse is on the horizon because I never imagined we’d ever see this. Ever! If the title of the article didn’t already give it away, allow me to catch you up to speed: Naruto is a very popular Shonen Anime and Manga that has only recently finished. Wait, no, the Anime is still going…it’s the Manga that’s finished! Wait, no, another Manga series just started, it’s the long line of Naruto movies that have finally finished! Wait, no, there’s actually still one more movie to be released. Has Naruto not ended? Because it just kind of sounds like Naruto still hasn’t ended! Anyway, that’s besides the point right now. Kakashi Hatake is a character who’s been in the series ever since the first few chapters. He was the man that trained the titular character alongside two of his close friends/enemies and basically made him what he is today: The saviour of the known world. Yes, there were a few mentor-types in between that …

Will The Naruto Exhibition Guestbook Finally Reveal Kakashi’s Face?

Naruto fans have always wondered just what was beyond the mask of Team 7 sensei and Leaf Jonin Kakashi. He hardly ever takes the damn thing off and whenever he actually does there’s something between us and what I assume is his lovely lower face. Many fans of over the years have tried their hand at interpreting just what it is that’s under the mask using the contours of his face and a little of their imagination but nothing comes close to the man himself Masashi Kishimoto drawing it with his own two hands. It’s just not the same! This may all change very soon though seeing as the new Naruto Exhibition that’s set to open up in just a few days may actually show Kakashi’s face in a short Manga drawn by series creator Masashi Kishimoto that is given to all exhibition-goers. The internet has already gotten a little peak at what this guestbook has to offer and what people have taken from it is that Kakashi’s face will indeed be shown. Now whether or …

New “Naruto” Manga To Begin April 27th In Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump

I know, for a fact, that this is what all you “Naruto” fans out there have been waiting for ever since the ending of the Manga. We all know that “Naruto” will never die. That’s a fact, and anyone that can’t deal with it just needs to make a bigger effort to do so. No matter what your views are of the series, you can’t deny that there is indeed a justification behind its incredibly high popularity level. I’m sure it was all apart of our childhoods and most people that watched or read it when it first started have continued to do so up until this day. The Anime is currently running a filler arc which SHOULD return to the main story in the near future, “The Last: Naruto The Movie” was released a little bit ago and people absolutely loved it for some odd reason, and, as mentioned, the Manga has only recently just ended BUT there’s more in store for the “Naruto” franchise. Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of the series, has already …

Naruto Shippuden’s New Chunin Exam Arc – A Justified Filler Or Just Another Stall Tactic?

It all started in chapter thirty four of the original “Naruto” Manga series. Before “Shippuden” was even close to being a reality, fans of the series followed the young Shinobi, Naruto, and his journey to becoming something more than a simple “nincompoop” with a bad attitude and an air of utter restlessness. It was during this stage of the little Ninja’s life that audiences were graced with an arc that, I believe, truly defines exactly what early chapters of “Naruto” were truly about. It showed each of the Konohagakure Ninjas – alongside some others from Sunagakure and the smaller Otogakure – in situations that tested them both physically and mentally while at the same time expressing to those reading their true personalities. Most fans of the series from this time, I’m sure, would have developed their loves for certain characters during this time whether or not they actually participated in the exams. It was during this arc that we were introduced to us the idea of brains over braun, it was where we got to see …

‘Naruto’ Creator Masashi Kishimoto Wins ‘Rookie Of The Year’ Award, Someone Needs To Look Up ‘Rookie’ In The Dictionary

Legendary mangaka Masashi Kishimoto is the man behind the global anime and manga sensation, Naruto. He started the Naruto manga in 1999 and now in 2015 he has been awarded the prestigious ‘Rookie Of The Year’ award for the series from the Japanese Government’s Agency of Cultural Affairs. Now I’m not quite sure how in the world Kishimoto could be considered a rookie of his chosen artform considering he is a 15 year plus veteran of the manga medium, but his eligibility for this award may be due to the fact that Naruto is actually his first and only completed work. So there you go. Regardless of all the controversy over whether Kishimoto should be considered a rookie or not, congratulations to the man who brought us Naruto on winning this fine award. Here’s looking at you, kid. -30-

Naruto The Movie: Road To Ninja – Review

Ever since my early high school days I’ve been a huge fan of Masashi Kishimoto’s “Naruto”. I followed both the Manga and Anime all the way up until the beginning of the second series “Shippuden” where I hit a steep decline in love for what was once one of the most important things in my life. Even as a fan of the early Anime, I never truly enjoyed the movies that came from it. “Ninja Clash In The Land Of Snow”, “Guardians Of The Crescent Moon Kingdom”, they just didn’t do the series I loved justice. “Shippuden” came around and alongside it a whole bunch of movies I too didn’t necessarily enjoy, but one DID pique my interest and it just so happens to be the newly released “Road To Ninja”. Something about an alternate universe story excites me but, as of recent times, “Naruto” has only come to disappoint. I’m hoping that, in this new universe, “Naruto” stayed as good as it once was all those years ago. – (Written prior to watching film) …

New Filler Arc Announced For The “Naruto” Anime Tells The Story of The Chunin Exams

I’m sure you’re more than aware but there was indeed a time in the “Naruto” universe where our hero simply wasn’t around. It was an angsty time for young Naruto and Sasuke who both left the village after a mighty battle wherein which the boys taught each other a true lesson about power and emotion. Sasuke left to do his own thing, joining Orochimaru who promised him a level of power that no one else could provide, with the goal that he would one day return to the Hidden Leaf Village and burn it to the ground. Naruto, on the other hand, left with one of the other legendary Sannin Jiraiya who spent two years training our hero to be the man he is today. Two similar paths that are also worlds apart: A fantastic metaphor for the relationship that these two young boys shared together. Just because the two characters left the village they grew up in, doesn’t mean that nothing happened while they were gone. Actually, according to this announcement, a great deal happened …

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 4 Announced For The PlayStation 4

“Naruto” is done. Yes, that’s it. It is over forever and you’ll never see any more “Naruto” content. That’s just something you’ll have to deal with. Forever. No “Naruto” stuff. “Naruto” is dead and gone. No…it’s not. The franchise is still going strong and even though the Manga has now officially ended there’s still so much more of “Naruto” to come, making it a series that will truly never die. Not that people want it to. “The Last: Naruto The Movie” started showing in Japanese theatres last weekend and has met quite an awe-inspiring critical and financial reception. There’s still a Manga series to come regarding the next generation of Ninja from the series and, only announced today, there’s a brand-new game on the way but this time it’ll be getting a release on a “next gen” console…the PlayStation 4. So, as you can see, there’s no real lack of “Naruto” in the world right now. In fact, I think there’s probably so much more circulating now thanks to the Manga ending than there ever …

“The Last: Naruto The Movie” – Madman Entertainment Releases English-Subtitled Trailer

Madman Entertainment, Australia’s leading Anime and Manga distributors, have just announced that they will be showing the upcoming Shonen Jump film “The Last: Naruto The Movie” in select cinemas across the great country in January of 2015 but they’re not quite done exciting “Naruto” fans. As a little bonus to what is already an exciting piece of news, Madman Entertainment have released their very own trailer for the new “Naruto” movie that not only gives us a nice glimpse of what we’re to expect of the film but also comes accompanied by English subtitles so we know exactly what it is that is being said. For more information on the exclusive screenings of “The Last: Naruto The Movie” check out this article which features everything detailed by Madman so far. Before jumping over to the other article though, first make sure you check out the trailer which we’ve provided for you just below. The moon is approaching dangerously close to Earth! Unless something is done, the moon will disintegrate, showering the earth with gigantic meteorites. …

Kishimoto’s Fellow Shonen Jump Mangaka Farewell “Naruto”

It’s not just us, the readers and watchers, who’re saying our farewells to the long-running Shonen series “Naruto”. We’ve read it, we’ve watched it, we’ve experienced all of it but we’re not the only ones. “Naruto” being part of the “Shonen Jump” lineup for many years, you can imagine that the man behind the series Masashi Kishimoto would have gotten very comfortable with his brothers and sisters in arms at Shonen Jump. It is them too that will now mourn the end of a series that has been, according to most readers, at the top of its game for a very long time. We’ve said our part, we’ve critiqued the end, we’ve seen what we’ve needed to see and now it is time for those behind the pages to comment on the end of what was one of the most inspiring contemporary Mangas. The latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump features a small but powerful list of comments made by other Shonen Jump Mangakas regarding the end of “Naruto”. They say their goodbyes, they …

Latest Chapter Of “One Piece” Pays Tribute To Fellow Shonen Jump Series “Naruto”

The long-running Shonen Jump series “Naruto” has finally…come to an end. “Goodbye, old friend!” says fans the world over as the final chapter gets released over in Japan but just because it’s yet to be released in the West doesn’t mean fanatics don’t have their ways of finding themselves a readable copy. Legal or…otherwise. Released in the same issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump is the latest chapter of another critically-acclaimed, long-running Manga series called, as you may already have guessed, “One Piece”. Now it’s known that all Mangaka share a sibling-like bond. Some more than others, obviously, but none like the one between Masashi Kishimoto and Eiichiro Oda. How do I know they’re close? Well, just look at the latest chapter of “One Piece” where the title page is one huge tribute to the now-finished Ninja series. Oda packed in just about as much “Naruto” content into the title page of chapter 766 as he could and it warms the heart. Be it Nami’s “Konohagakure-ispired” dress, the bipedal fox serving them their meal, or …

These “The Last: Naruto The Movie” Images May Be Fake But They’re Still Pretty Cool To look At

I don’t know how many times I’ve typed this in the past few weeks but…here we go again: “Naruto” is ending! I’m sure you’re very much aware of this already so if you’re sick of hearing it, I apologize. The long-running Shonen series is about to come to an end but not before a final “hurrah!” which will be coming in the form of a feature length movie based upon the lives of the main cast years in the future. We also just found out that there’s going to be another short “Naruto” series which is set to come out next year, but I wont speak about that for longer than I have to because I already did it in THIS article. Coming alongside an event this huge is always a slew of fake screenshots, images, videos and information that only work to excite and then anger the masses. In case this is your first time; welcome to the internet. “The Last: Naruto The Movie” is not impervious to this, in fact, it’s quite the …

There’s A New “Naruto” Series In The Works – “Naruto: The Next Generation”

It doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to figure out that “Naruto”, at this point in time, is the most popular Shonen Anime/Manga series. In fact, it may be the most popular Anime/Manga series, period. Unlike many other series’, right this second, “Naruto’s” all-encompassing popularity has come about due to the fact that the long-running series is just about over forever. Or so we’re told. Now don’t get my words wrong, “Naruto” is also much-loved to its characters, its story and the artwork behind the series but it’s no joke that the prospect of it ending has gotten people in a bit of a stir. This is why all the “Naruto” articles on our site are blowing up like crazy! Well, I’m here to deliver another piece of “Naruto-related” news that, let’s be real here, may or may not be one hundred percent legit. Basically…there’s a new “Naruto” Manga and possible Anime series on the way. As you can see in the title of this article, it will be called “Naruto: The Next Generation” and it …

The Last: Naruto The Movie – Theatrical Trailer

As my fellow writer Luke Halliday would way; “Naruto mania running wild, blokey!”, and for once in his life he’d be right. ‘Naruto’ mania is definitely running wild thanks to the almost finale of the long-running Manga combined with the immeasurable hype of the final movie of the franchise soon to begin its theatrical run in Japan. Up until this point in time, most of what we’ve seen of the movie has come in the form of short ads or still images of character designes but this time we’ve got the real deal: A full theatrical trailer that has just started playing in Japanese cinemas. Yes, it has been released online for fans all over the world to admire and, well…it’s looking damn good! I’m not even that into ‘Naruto’ anymore and I think it’s looking to be a great movie, I can’t help but imagine current fans’ excitement. it’s probably through the damn roof! The song you’re about to hear in the trailer is provided by Japanese jazz duo ‘Sukima Switch’ and will serve …

Check Out This New Ad For “The Last – Naruto The Movie” – It’s Short, Sweet And Awesome!

Fourteen seconds is all you need to prove a point, and the latest commercial for the upcoming ‘The Last – Naruto The Movie’ shows audiences exactly what it means to be fast and loud. The Manga series for the much-beloved Shonen tale ‘Naruto’ is just about to come to an end. I believe there’s only two chapters left before we say ‘bye bye’ to our favorite orange Ninja but that doesn’t mean he’ll be gone forever. No, no. As ‘Shinedown’ say; “sometimes goodbye means a second chance” and that’s exactly what Naruto has gotten himself. Yes, despite the Manga coming to an end, there’s one more ‘Naruto’ movie on the way. One that will take place a few years in the future and will feature the famed hero in a more ‘mature’ role alongside his Leaf Village friends. The latest Japanese commercial for the movie has just been shared online by the powers at be and at a tiny fourteen seconds long it still somehow shows us enough to get pumped up for what’s to …
