Thread: Naruto Thread XII: This really has to be the final Naruto thread, right?

  1. #1

    Default Naruto Thread XII: This really has to be the final Naruto thread, right?

    Well, it took a few years to get through Naruto thread XI... almost a decade really... a far cry from the days when a Naruto thread would only last a few months... but at last we're on Naruto Thread XII!

    Which at this point is actually Boruto, but who is keeping track? If this paces anything like the previous thread, this one should last until One Piece finishes in "five years". We'll see how that works out.

    Naruto Discussion XII

    Shouldn't this be the Boruto thread, since Naruto is now a fodder in his own universe?

    Who the fuck cares about Burrito?

    No, seriously, isn't he just the 12th most popular guy in his own series?

    Boruto I isn't nearly as impressive as Naruto XII. Way less history and importance.

    Well...I guess Naruto threads are like FF games. Each one takes longer and longer to come out, but...I don't think they'll ever end. Also, they're numbered by Roman numerals.

    You missed the part about being progressively divisive.

    So I heard Kishimoto had a new series that got canceled after a year.

    Is that true? Because it's fucking hilarious if so.

    That is INCREDIBLY common with authors that have one big hit then try to do something else. Its VERY rare you get a Toriyama, Takehashi or Inoue that manage more than one big hit, so thats not really a mark against Kishi at all.

    Many times their failed projects ends up leading them back to doing a spinoff of their original hit. Shaman King and Battle Angel in particular comes to mind.

    Do you think Oda will make another big hit after One Piece?

    Oda will be too old to start a new manga after One Piece ends.

    For a super long series that spans decades, definitely

    for a small mini series or doing one shot short stories like he did before who knows

    He's been pretty explicit OP is going to be his life's work and there's nothing big after it, and thats why he's cramming everything into it now (like robots, gangster, and samurai stuff.) After OP is done I think he mostly is too.

    He'll probably go the Toriyama route and just do random 10 chapter things every couple of years when he has an idea, something the anime studios can get excited about and do a season of. Maybe do some video game designs, work on a movie. With his success he can do anything he wants. But he's almost certainly never going to do a long-term serial again. Well, he can't help himself so maybe 2-5 volume outings. Definitely nothing else approaching the planned scope OP had.

    I'm sure he wants a break and to retire, but he's such a passionate artist I also can't see him staying on break for too long once he's recharged.

    I don't think he has it in him to be Takehashi and just jump into another new long series every ten years.

    I see him doing a lot of one-shots here and there for a while.

    Yeah, I can also see Oda doing short stories about side characters in the OP world, conmemorative illustrations and original designs for video games/movies. And now that I think about it, isn't it strange that Kishimoto is doing none of that? Is he fed up with Naruto in general or what? He just jumped into Samurai 8 and kept repeating that it wasn't like Naruto.

    I feel like in this case it is a mark against Kishi.
    Not trying to make it personal but there's a distinction between the really good writers and the not so good ones or the ones that coasted along due to early popularity.

    And that's really just Kishi in his last few years of Naruto.
    JUMP even made a deliberate effort to help keep his Hachi story in longer.
    He's.. just not that good.
    The trait that successful authors who came back for a second round is that they always know what they are doing and their previous series have zero to very little leaks/flaws in terms of like, everything.
    Dr Slump, Slam Dunk, Yu Yu Hakusho holds well even to this day..and you can't really say that about Naruto.
    In recent years I can remember Beelzebub, now Beelzebub is a great series but was shaky as hell during its last few arcs.
    So I could see how Hungry Marie didn't last.
    And Kuroko Basket had style over substance towards its end which means Robot lasting that long was both a surprise and it ending wasn't.

    Well basically this post is just to say there are the legends...and there's everyone else.

    An easy case study to look at will be Kubo's BOTW, if it runs like weekly it will die off before it gets a year.
    And I'm willing to bet the same for Shokugeki and TPN's new works.

    Funny enough, for me it was basically late shippuuden Naruto in space, mixing sci-fi technology with samurai, instead of ninjas. Similar character types, similar designs, similar themes, similar inspirations, similar powers... (similar lack of quality in general )
