It's your kids, Naruto! Something's gotta be done about your kids!


What the 7th Hokage had wrought

I'll be honest, I've always wanted to say that in relation to, something, so I may as well say it now that the new teaser for Boruto -Naruto the Movie- is out. But it's not just Marty Naruto's kid that's the problem: Sasuke's kid, Sarada, is prominently featured as the next-generation rival.

Kishimoto only knows what the plan is for the new ninja generation, beyond the fact that Naruto is officially more a brand than a name at this point. Which leads me to wonder just how long every future movie, manga, or TV show set in this world will have to be subtitled "Naruto the [Media Format]" to remind the masses that the ninja thing is Still A Thing.

The movie opens on August 7th, with Yuko Sanpei (aka Qwaser of the Stigmata's Sasha) cast to play Boruto and Kokoro Kikuchi (aka Heartcatch Precure's Potpourri) cast to play Sarada.
