  • I know you're definitely getting this because it's a new thread.

    Alright I'm done with school and my weekend has now started. I'm about to start planning out my weekend so can you please just let me know what your plans for the discussion are? Thanks!

    P.S. What are your thoughts on this stupid dress debacle?

    • I'm going to try my best to get to your stuff, but I've been incredibly busy with school and my mother being in the hospital for surgery. I've been answering questions on the side, but I have been reading your posts, just not having the time to construct answers.

    • Holy crap is she okay?! I hope it's nothing serious. Not that it will mean anything, but give her my best wishes.

      With that understood, now please take your time. I'm really looking forward to your answers but family comes first above all else.

  • Hey Omega, how've you been? If you recall back to when I posted that summary of The Last: Naruto the Movie, you saw that it was translated by a person on tumblr named Utapurinsesu. After reading through the summary, I created a tumblr account so I could get in touch with this person and ask him some questions that we all had. Well, we stayed in contact all this time, and we've been talking about a bunch of things. One of the more interesting ones is a almost (he has 10 minutes left to summarize that he will do at another time) complete summary of the interview Kishimoto did with Kobayashi (here is a link to the interview). While I'm sure you read a few bits about this from other sources (this is the same interview that said Neji died to make NaruHina happen, and that Kishimoto originally wanted to have Naruto and Sasuke holding hands instead of losing their arms), Utapurinsesu went into a lot more detail, and revealed some interesting facts. I thought it was pretty cool, so I figured I'll post what he said for you to see. Just so you know, I'm posting exactly what he wrote from our conversations, so if some things don't make sense, ask me for any context. Alright, here's the full summary:

    8.18 – 8:43 about Kagebunshin

    Ki “Kagebunshin…” Ko “I actually wanted to ask you about that afterwards” Ki “Oh sorry” [laughs] Ko ”But I’ll ask now. We get the impression that you kinda dug your own grave with that one” [drawing Naruto with so many bunshin from the start] Ki “Yeah I think so” Ko “Because you went and did right from chapter 1” Ki “Yeah…” Ko “So you had to balance his power from the start” Ki “That’s right. He [Naruto] quickly got stronger, didn’t he. When he improved, his number of bunshin increased too. I just thought ‘Ive really done it now!’”

    Ok, so now from the actual Q&A session, I’ll just summarize what was said because its far too long… Here is the first half and I’ll do the second half another time.

    Q1: ”I’ve always wondered where you began to come up with the concept of ‘Naruto’ as a story and thought that that’s what yoou’d write about.”

    A: Apparently he started out wanting to write a story about an old guy who owns a ramen shop and a young boy comes by, or something uninteresting like that. Other things also got mixed in with that like a story which was supposed to be really spectacular and it was about straightening up their lives and other emotive plots… He showed that to his publishers but they told him the story is way too far from what they want, and Kobayashi agrees that it doesn’t have any elements befitting a weekly Shounen Jump series. He started to research other shounen series (especially Akira Toriyama, who he was a big fan of). In the end the name ‘Naruto’ came from this failed story attempt, as well as the obvious influences that made it into the actual series. Then he made a story not about ninjas but about youkai (demons), where the main character was a fox who shape-shifted into a human. This story changed again so he made the fox demon into a human and redrew the whole thing, and submitted that version

    He wanted to do something different to other artists who had written about ninjas, so made Naruto blond, more like a foreigner than a ninja. He also decided to make ninjas more about ‘helping/ protecting’ rather than ‘dying’ and also less about ‘staying hidden’. After trying this out, he was then asked by kids ‘Is that really a ninja?’ and he thought ‘Uh oh. I’ve gone off on a tangent again!’ But he decided he wanted to stick with it anyway and his publishers also said its fine only being this far off the mark [about what a ninja is].

    Q2: “Do you remember how you came about the catchphrase ‘dattebayo’?”

    [This answer was kinda hard for me to understand coz the logic in his answer kinda jumps around a bit. This is what I THINK he meant] A: He decided to make a catchphrase that sounded silly that an old person etc would come out with. He also thought something that sounded like a speech impediment would be good, so decided to go with ‘dattebayo’”.

    Q3: “Did you have to think hard about [the setting/ creation of] naruto’s classmates?”

    A: Kishimoto didn’t actually originally intend for that kind of setting. Originally he intended to focus on various missions that Naruto went on, meeting 4-man cells from other villages. The teachers of the 4-man cell would be Kakashis rival. But after discussing this with his editor, he was told there wouldn’t be time for such a slow-paced development, so he needed to come bring all these characters and villages out at once. You’re going to make a tournament. Kishimoto said he can’t do it and if he did it’d kill him [not literally], but he was told to do it even if it kills him. That is how the Chuunin exams arc came about. That was what he was forced to do. But even now he wish he could do his original idea about focusing on missions.

    So he found it really difficult coming up with so many new characters and their designs in one go with no material to go on. So he asked for some designs from his editor to help, who saw a really weird looking keychain (?) and made drawings based on that, and that’s where Gai and Lee’s etc designs came from.

    Kobayashi says that listening to what he said earlier about Kakashi’s rival, it sounds like he was originally planning for team Gai to be from another village when introducing them here [since they weren’t introduced with the other rookies/ teachers]. Kishimoto says that was originally the case, but they decided it was better for Kakashi to have a rival from inside the village so they went with this instead and introduced Team Gai as being from Konoha.

    Kishimoto also says that the series picked up popularity thanks to the tournament aspect to find out who’d win, and even Kishimoto himself started to enjoy writing this part. But his editorial team told him to introduce a villain called Orochimaru in there that would stop the tournament from being finished instead. Kishimoto was disappointed since he was really getting into it, and had already put out the idea that he wanted Shikamaru to win. But before being told to put in the plot development of the tournament being destroyed, Kishimoto does admit that he was worrying about how to write Shikamaru’s fights for the rest of the tournament and make him the winner, since Shikamaru has an IQ of 200 and he [Kishimoto] doesn’t have a very high one, so he didn’t know how to pull it off.

    Q4: “Why did you decide to introduce a strong enemy like Zabuza right at the beginning of the series?”

    A: Kishimoto says that he wanted to do this right off the bat to show off Kakashi’s strength as an example of what an experienced ninja can do in the Narutoverse. This would set some cornerstones down in the manga straight away and make it easier for the audience to put things into perspective. Kobayashi points out that there were many things introduced in this arc that played huge roles right until the end of the series (kekkei genkai, sharingan etc), but Kishimoto just said he was ‘bluffing’ with these things in the beginning [nb: in other words he just made them up without any thought on how to use them in the future]. At the time he was just making these things up for the excitement and suspense, but didn’t pick up on what to do with some of these threads long-term until later. Basically he was making it up as he went. Even with Sasuke’s backstory, at the time of the Wave Arc, all that had been thought out was that Sasuke had an elder brother who had done something bad, and that was it. Kishimoto admits the planning was very hazy at this point. However, at the point where Itachi is actually introduced, Kishimoto had decided to secretly make him a good guy, but the reason he did something bad was because of circumstances. Kishimoto also says that although he introduced the Sharingan as being able to copy moves, the premise on what the Sharingan could do changed drastically over the course of the storyline.

    Kobayashi comments that the concept of focusing on eyeballs in a Shounen manga is unique, and Kishimoto laughs and agrees. Kishimoto explains that theres a really old story called ‘Take of the Gallant Jiraiya’ that often comes up in Kabuki and the like, where the main character Jiraiya actually has the Sharingan. Kishimoto decided to take the concept of the Sharingan from this story and create the Uchiha clan to give the Sharingan to. And because Kakashi also has a Sharingan despite not being an Uchiha, he wanted this to be a mystery that kept readers interested as to how he got it.

    Kobayashi comments that this mystery isn’t explained until Kakashi Gaiden much, much further down the line, but even so, you can see the group picture of Kakashi, Obito, Rin and Minato early on in the series [Kobayashi is showing a page from chapter 16]. Kishimoto says that may be so, but even by chapter 16 he had already decided this storyline, about Obito being an Uchiha, and that Minato was Naruto’s dad (but doesn’t confirm if he’d decided Minato’s name by then). Speaking of Minato, even though his identity was confirmed by this point, to begin with Kishimoto hadn’t thought of creating a fourth Hokage or him being Naruto’s dad. Kishimoto knew that he would have to introduce what had happened to his dad somewhere in the story, but didn’t know how to do it. Before coming up with Minato as the 4th Hokage, Minato’s spot on the Hokage Monument was actually taken by a dog [nb: you read that right, a dog]. He explains that at the time he actually wanted to try out that a ‘ninken’ (ninja dog) like those owned by the Inuzuka had been the Hokage at one point. But his editor told him he was thinking off on a tangent again, so instead of that just make him the main character’s dad instead.

    [until 21.35]

    On the popularity of characters - Kobayashi asks if Kishimoto had any idea how popular he thought Kakashi would be, as he became the most popular character, to which Kishimoto replies that he had no idea how he became so popular. Kobayashi says he’s missing the point and they both laugh, and suggests that maybe the reason is because Kakashi is cool.

    Kobayashi then says that Jiraiya was also popular, to which Kishimoto agrees. Kobayashi suggests that it’s because he’s always acting pervy and has Icha Icha etc. Kishimoto goes on to say that the characters he actually having the intention to become popular actually flopped. This is the case of Sai, who wasn’t well received at all. Kimimaro was also the same. Kimimaro was actually popular at first, but as soon as he was shown to pull out his spinal cord his popularity disappeared. Kobayashi suggests that maybe it’s because it grossed the fans out, especially female fans.

    On Sakura’s popularity & character - Kobayashi then asks about Sakura. Kishimoto says he tried to write her more realistically [than other characters], and tried to show a girl’s ‘real’ self/ feelings [through inner Sakura]. He thought she would appeal to female fans, but was surprised when she actually became hated. Kobayashi asks if there was a lot of Sakura hate, and Kishimoto says there was, and even young girls told him they hate her. Kishimoto said that he continued on regretting Sakura’s character. Kobayashi apologizes for bringing up the painful memories as Kishimoto apologizes for tailing off (lol).

    Kobayashi said that his team were discussing in a meeting why Sakura’s family was never written. He says that they eventually appeared in a movie, but not in the manga. Even when all the parents are shown along with their children during the war, and even random relatives are shown, Sakura’s parents aren’t seen. He says that they came across like a civilian family and kind of made Sakura seem on the side-lines. He asks Kishimoto why this is, and Kishimoto replies that, honestly speaking, Sakura was that unpopular that even if he expanded on her… (nb. He tails off in what he’s saying). Kobayashi reiterates Kishimoto’s statement, and Kishimoto tells him that’s right, to which Kobayashi laughs.

    Kobayashi asks if it was too late to drop her, and Kishimoto says that he just had to persevere with her, and thought about how to raise her popularity. In the 4th volume, a cover page shows her with Katsuyu, so this was the direction he tried to work in. In later volumes, he tries to draw her more beautifully. On the cover page of Vol 66, he drew Sasuke and Naruto quickly, but with Sakura he took a long time to draw her beautifully and was using source materials as guides. But he says that in the end no one really took notice (it had no effect), and Hinata’s popularity just kept going up on its own.

    Kishimoto explains that Hinata, like Sakura, never really did anything but her popularity just kept going up and up, so part way through the story he started to wonder whether he should make her the main heroine instead, or at least gradually write her into the direction of the heroine.

    They then go on to talking about Part II/ Shippuden.

    On Shippuden’s/ Part II’s plot - Kobayashi starts off asking about whether there was framework put in place for the direction of Shippuden’s story. Kishimoto replies that because Naruto and his group were so weak as genin in the first part, so he wanted to make them stronger in the second part. This is especially because he introduced the Akatsiki, who are all Jonin level, so he had to make the main cast stronger too. He also used the timeskip as a chance to change their clothes, since he didn’t like the swirl on the arm of Naruto’s jacket, and also his thick collar in Part 1 got in the way of his face in action scenes. So he drew a small collar and dropped the swirl. He also added the headband with the long tails at the back so they would stand out and flutter during action scenes.

    On Akatsuki - Kobayashi then goes on to say that when the Akatsuki were first introduced [when they were as shadows during their meetings] it was really exciting. Kobayashi says his favorite pair were Hidan and Kakuzu, to which Kishimoto agrees, saying Hidan was his favorite overall. Kobayashi says that they gave off a real sense of danger and malice. He also says that the concept of them both being immortal, albeit for different reasons, was really interesting. Kishimoto said he was worried at first about how he was depicting Hidan, who stabbed himself then said it felt good. Kobayashi says that it’s also the case of the damage he inflicted on Asuma.

    On censorship scenes - Kobayashi then brings up the scene where Shikamaru is smoking Asuma’s cigarette, saying that it gave off the feeling of a boy becoming an adult. Kishimoto said he didn’t think they’d be able to show this in the anime. Kobayashi admits he was worried when this first came out. Kishimoto said that he thought he’d be told he can’t show a minor smoking [in the manga], since manga regulations are very strict. He had a meeting with his editor about whether he should change it or not, and in the end his editor told him to not worry about it and just try and go through with it anyway. If the people above wanted to edit it they would. Kobayashi brings up a scene where Hidan’s head is lopped off, and Kishimoto comments that the editing department told him to add black bars at the side for censoring. Kobayashi asks if Hidan is still buried underground, and Kishimoto says he is. Kishimoto wondered whether to put him in the war, but in the end he didn’t want to have even more characters to draw, so he didn’t.

    Kobayashi then brings up the scene where Shikamaru is smoking again and he starts crying and flicks the cigarette away, Kobayashi comments that for a shounen series this was an incredibly serious scene. Kobayashi asks if he likes this kind of stuff, and Kishimoto says that surprisingly he does like these kinds of movies etc. He can’t out too much of this kind of thing into a shounen series, but he put in a little bit of something he finds interesting.

    Kobayashi then asks about Akatsuki, saying they’re not just a normal organization, and they don’t really know much about each other. (nb: this next line I’m not sure about) Kishimoto says that in real life there are such professional organizations where a group of individuals come together, so he wanted to draw a parallel to that. And he drew Pain to be the leader bringing together these individuals.

    On camera & layout techniques in the manga - Kobayashi asks if the scene where Pain first appears looking down on the world was difficult, because the background was very complex. Kishimoto says it was very difficult, and at first he had to carefully pencil everything out. Kishimoto says that he also drew the detailed background in the scene where Naruto is looking down over Konoha when he first comes back. Kishimoto said he had to draw it to make the whole image come together properly. Kobayashi notices a sign in Pain’s scene that reads ‘hankerchief’ and asks about it, and Kishimoto says it’s a homage to [another series called] Bobobo-Bobobobo. Kobayashi comments that it’s amazing considering he only had one week to do this for the deadline. Kishimoto says that image took him 3 days to do.

    Kobayashi then brings up about other unique shots, like the shot of Deidara sitting on Gaara’s body (which has a fish-eye lens effect). Kishimoto says he loves that kind of shot and was inspired by the work ‘Akira’. He says he like how it adds depth to the world using that lens method. Kobayashi shows the cover page of chapter 106 commenting that it looks like the kind of shot found in pervy AV [Adult Video= softporn] films. Kishimoto states that he’s never researched that kind of thing.

    Kobayashi then shows the scene where Naruto punches Haku, which is showing the same punch but at three different angle. Kishimoto comments that this is a technique often used in films known as ‘double action’. He says that in Jackie Chan’s movies for example, it is used to emphasis the strength of the punch. Kishimoto says he wanted to use that effect in his manga. Kobayashi says he has a question about why the faces aren’t shown when Naruto hits someone, and if that was intentional. Kishimoto replies that it is cooler that way, because rather than the focus being on the face, the focus of attention is on the body’s [recoil] and it’s more expressive that way. He says that in important scenes he plans it so to not draw they’re faces.

    Kobayashi then asks about another layout technique he uses, where in Naruto/ Sasuke fights the Naruto and Sasuke panels are connected on the left and right page, and the development of action progresses from the top of the page to the bottom. Kishimoto says that this is a manga technique that he thought to use that is easy to follow, as both are connected it doesn’t matter where you are looking you can easily follow what both sides are doing at the same time. He says that he designed it to be quick and simple to skim over and not to emphasis looking at the details, since you’re reading both pages at the same time.

    Kobayashi shows an example of a complicated double-page layout. Kishomoto says that the panels are messed up and random to express the confusion of the fight, and the reader also doesn’t know where to look. Also, because it makes you look around the page quickly, it adds a sense of speed to the battle as well. Kobayashi understands that this was a deliberate technique, because at the time he wondered if it was OK for Kishimoto to have submitted this for publication.

    On the War arc Moving on, Kobayashi comments that the war arc must have been very difficult. Kishimoto says it was, and that in the Pain fight, Pain comments about Naruto not having experienced war. This part set the story towards the war arc, so Naruto could come up with his final answer after having experienced war for himself. Kishimoto explains that this conversation in the Pain arc meant that he couldn’t back down from steering the story towards a war arc. Kobayashi says that everyone popped up during the war arc, and Kishimoto said that he wanted to use that as a way to wrap things up from the entire series so far.

    He says he did an unimportant old man fight between Mifune and Hanzo, which was unusual for a shounen manga. He said he was told off [by his editor?] and told to drop the old man fight already. Kobayashi says that actually, that fight was his [Kobayashi’s show’s] directors favorite fight. Kishimoto thanks him. Kobyashi shows one part of that fight scene and comments how they are thinking back in the past as they are fighting. Kishimoto said he originally wanted to do a seppuku (ritual suicide) scene, but then he started to think it’d be a bit harsh to do that considering he’s an old man, so he started to go off the idea. Kobayashi asks about Mifune’s popularity with a shounen audience and Kishimoto replies that he wasn’t popular one bit. Kobayashi laughs and says that he thinks Mifune is cool, and that it’s interesting that samurai have developed to be on par with ninjas in a ninja world. Kishimoto says that if they didn’t develop, then… Kobayashi comments that they wouldn’t be samurai if they didn’t persist, and Kishimoto agrees. Kobayashi says that it’s a cool scene, but asks how it went down with a shounen audience. Kishimoto says that the opinion was ‘will this old man fight finish soon? The main characters not even in it’.

    Kobayashi says he likes the war arc, and that he liked the 2nd Mizukage, who tells everyone his own weaknesses. Kishimoto says that even though he’s an old man as well, he was actually fairly popular. Kishimoto said he thought it’d be interesting to have that character actually give away how to defeat himself and to demend it be done quickly. Kobayashi asks whether doing the Edo Tensei was difficult, and Kishimoto says yes. He says that from the Pain arc onwards, Naruto just defeats the enemy without intent to kill and settles things verbally. Doing it this way is more shounen-like so he felt he had to go down this direction. But he felt this kind of killed the mood, so from there he introduced the zetsu clones (and Edo Tensei) to have someone to beat. Kobayashi asks about the characters that didn’t come back as Edo Tensei, like Jiraiya, Konan and Hidan. Kishimoto said he didn’t want Jiraiya to come back, because he couldn’t possibly write it in a good way. Jiraiya’s death was a big part of Naruto’s development and brought him closer to understanding Sasuke’s feelings, so bringing Jiraiya back would undo that. The Edo Tensei was mostly a way to draw Madara out into the story.

    They go on to talk about Madara’s appearance, and that it’s the real him rather than just the Rinne Tensei. Kishimoto says it kind of ended up complicated about reviving him with Rinne Tensei or with Edo Tensei and the difference between the two.

    On Sakura’s Love Letter scene - Kobayashi laughingly brings up the unusual scene where Sakura gets a love letter [during the war]. Kishimoto explains that the reason for that was to give the anime team a lead for a [filler] story, because if they just kept doing the war arc at the pace they were going at then they would catch up with the manga. Kobayashi says this ‘Love letter incident’ is an unbelievable occurrence, and Kishimoto admits that he didn’t know what to write, he just had to put something. Kobayashi finds this hilarious and asks ‘so your answer was a love letter, then?’

    On Neji’s death - Kobayashi comments that there were many casualties during the war, but he was surprised about Neji, and asks Kishimoto why he was chosen. Kishimoto explains that because he decided to make Hinata into the lead heroine a while back, he used Neji’s death as a way to bring her and Naruto together. He goes on to explain that although there is the scene where she stands up to Pain, he wanted to create an opening for Naruto to consciously realize that she is by his side and thank her for that, so he used Neji’s death to do this. Kishimoto says that in this way Neji sort of took on the role of cupid for the two of them. He then explains that it was at this time when Kishimoto came up with the name of ‘Bolt’ for their son, which has a similar meaning to ‘Neji’ (screw), as a homage to the late uncle who brought his parents together. Kishimoto says that ‘if’ there is a manga about Bolt (nb: it wasn’t confirmed by this point), he wants to include scenes focusing on Neji. Kobayashi asks if it’s ok to mention something like this [project], and Kishimoto says that this is only hypothetical.

    On the final battle between Naruto & Sasuke - Kobayashi says the war arc was great, and then goes on to asking about the final battle between Naruto and Sasuke. Kishimoto said that because Sasuke was introduced as a rival character in the beginning, he also wanted the manga to end with Sasuke and Naruto fighting as rivals. Kobayashi comments that this conclusive battle has been a long time coming, and that it has been a long time since Sasuke first left the village. Kishimoto agrees and says that after writing his leaving arc, he was a bit frustrated because he didn’t know what to do with him anymore. But he said he could also understand Sasuke’s actions after leaving the village in some ways, and Kobayashi agrees. Kishimoto said he wanted the audience to understand Sasuke’s point of view, and wrote the story so he could push this idea. Kishimoto also explains that there were times when his editor told him he hasn’t properly captured Sasuke’s facial expression to show his character, and sometimes had to redraw him many times. He said that both he and Sakura were always a pain to draw. Kakashi was also difficult to draw facial expressions for since his face is covered. Kobayashi comments that designing these characters this way is Kishimoto’s form of self-hatred, and they laugh.

    About the final battle, Kishimoto says he didn’t want them to use ninjutsu. He said he wanted it to end in a boys’ fist fight, despite it not being in the usual spirit of Jump (and they bothered him about it). He then goes on to talk about when they both lose their arms (which is their dominant arm), relates back to a flashback in the beginning of the manga where they cross each other’s fingers, but now they can’t do that. So he used the Madara and Hashirama statues, who represented Indra and Asura, to hold hands instead, with Naruto and Sasuke on top. Kishimoto said he’s always wanted to draw this scene, even since Part I.

    On ending the manga - Kobayashi flicks through that chapter and comments that one of the daimyo looks like himself. Also in another panel there is a picture of one of Kishimoto’s cats in the background. Kobayashi then asks about the Jolly Roger mark on the Hokage Monument in chapter 700. Kishimoto says that it is a tribute to his fellow-managaka, Eiichiro Oda, who wrote One Piece. In the back of the Jump volume, there are some messages from his fellow managakas, and Oda’s says that they are rivals. Kishimoto says he feels the same way. He also says he was surprised, because he never heard they’d do that [publishing messages from all the authors to him], and it’s the first time something like that has been done. Kobayashi says that it’s a sign that he is a great mangaka who has created an amazing piece of work, and Kishimoto thanks him.

One button is "QG" for questions that violate the Question Guidelines. There isn't anything more specific I can do. Believe me, going that indepth on the topic isn't usually necessary. You say "people are frustrated when the questions get deleted", but to tell you the truth, you are the first one whose brought forth an issue in some time. Not to say there isn't any, but usually our questioners are accepting of the guidelines and acknowledge when a question violates the guidelines or policies. Not that you questioning is wrong, it's perfectly fine, I just want you to know that most don't make such a big deal out of the process as you might think.

    • Glad to hear it. Perhaps now you get a picture of how difficult it is to just "come up" with the OST at the drop of the hat. Like I said earlier, not all of the soundstracks were released, hence why you ended up finding yours from a third-party in an unofficial form.

  • This is a continuation of this thread, as it was getting too long.

    To make the transitions smoothly, here is a list of all the questions to ponder so you don't have to go back and forth between different threads (however, it might be beneficial to read the last long post I wrote, as there were some interesting ideas there): 

    Questions for Discussion:

    • When I write my alternate back story for Kaguya, can I get your opinion/feedback on it (I actually might be able to write it some time tomorrow)?
    • I knew you were okay with the mass revival at the end of the Pain Arc, but how did you feel about the actual TnJ segment between Naruto and Nagato? Don't you think it doesn't make a little sense about how Naruto convinced Nagato so easily?
    • (Direct quote from the Overview- best way to display this question)  I was more talking about the abilities of Juubito and Juudara itself, not the actual person. I remember a lot of people speculating that Obito would be able to use every single chakra nature for attacks, and though that's kind of what happened with the Truth-Seeking Balls, a lot of people were disappointed because they felt like Juubito wasn't much of a threat. How do you feel about that?
    • What is the largest character flaw(s) from your favorite character (either Naruto and/or Madara) in your eyes? For example, I noted on Justin's blog that my biggest problem with Naruto was the Child of Prophecy stuff (if you read my previous post, you'll know I pointed out flaws with Sasuke- I'm not trying to just sh!t on Naruto/Madara).
    • I wonder sometimes if there are more Sasuke fans or haters- which do you think there are more of?
    • Since you didn't touch on it, let me ask (since I was hoping it would give you something to ponder)- what do you think of my analysis of why Sasuke used the Tailed Beast's chakra to battle Naruto? Do you think there was more going on, or did he just absorb their chakra for the sake of doing it? (BTW, this is from two posts ago- not my previous long one)
    • What do you think were Naruto's most challenging battles over the course of the series? Also, like I said in the previous post, what fight would you consider "the fight of Naruto's life" (as I said, I consider it the final fight with Sasuke- the same goes for Sasuke, with the Itachi battle being a close second)?
    • To what extent do you think it would take for the Tailed Beasts to wake up? My best guess is that their chakra will naturally replenish itself as time passes, which would allow them to wake up and aid Naruto. Also, where did you read that Toneri needed the Six Paths Sage Mode Chakra to use his green orbs (don't post a link- just tell me what the source said)?
    • Since the anime won't be ending anytime soon (confirmed by SP), why do you still think they'd put a lot of effort into Naruto vs. Sasuke?
    • That (Naruto's first Tailed Beast Mode Transformation) was an awesome moment, but that wasn't in 2014... Do you have any favorite moments and/or chapters from 2014 (661-700)?
    • Are the GoT books good? Have you considered watching the show?
    • What do you think of the character Kakashi (attitude/personality, background, relationships, powers, fights, etc)?
    • What do you think of the two videos I posted above (Naruto vs. Sasuke 695- #1 & Naruto vs. Sasuke 695- #2)? Would you like to see something like that?
    • Which fight do you think resulted in more damage to the landscape- Hashirama vs. Madara or Naruto vs. Sasuke?

    Regarding the Volume 72 cover, I completely agree. I do think it is a little too simplistic for it's own good. While it still feels right to have Naruto as the Hokage looking over the village, it's almost very dull. How do you feel about the fact that it only features Naruto and no other character (while also not displaying any of the events of Naruto vs. Sasuke- the main focus of the Volume)? Also, how do you feel about Naruto with his back turned towards the front? While it makes sense to see his jacket that says "7th Hokage", at the same time I do wish we saw the front of Naruto- not his back. Your thoughts?

    • Just wanted to let you know I finally finished that other thing on the Kaguya blog (BTW, when you respond to that, can you please do it an a separate comment from the rest, as there's a lot to say and it would probably be easier).

      With that done, all I'm doing now is waiting for you. Can you let me know how you're doing with getting to all this stuff?

      EDIT: Didn't feel the need to make another new message. My friend sent me a link to what is probably the best fan animation of Naruto and Sasuke's final battle. Here is the link. When you respond to everything else, can you let me know what you think of this video?

    • Three things I want to bring up. If you get this (which you should, as you get notifications), can you just let me know what's up with what I presented in the first topic (the other two can be saved for later). The first pertains to everything, the second is dealing with that video I posted in the previous message (kind of), and the third is something that I'm gonna be adding.

      The first thing is are you gonna have any time soon to either get to any/all of the following:

      • Everything in this discussion that you still have to read
      • What we were talking about on the Otsutsuki blog
      • Alternate Naruto final battle/ending (also on Otsutsuki blog)

      ? There's a lot to read and write about, so I'm not expecting you to get to every one, as that's asking too much. All I'm hoping for is to get at least one of them done this weekend.

      The other topic I wanted to bring up pertains to that Naruto vs. Sasuke fan animation, as well as any other fan animations I've shown you in present videos. Now when it comes to this, just to keep things organized, please don't give me your thoughts on this until you're ready to get back to the entire thing. Now, I was talking to someone else and like me, they really want to see the anime add one or two scenes of Naruto creating 10s/100s/1000s of clones and then having to see Sasuke take them down through various methods, as that's usually what happens in a lot of Naruto's major fights. From all the different elements I mentioned when it comes to filler, this is one of the ones I want to see the most. And as you can see, all of these videos I have shown you usually add a scene like that. With all of that said, what do is the likelihood of seeing a scene where Naruto creates a lot of clones to face Sasuke? Also, is that something you personally want to see?

      The final thing that I'm bringing to the discussion (like the other message, please treat it as just another extension of my previous long message instead of a new post) is the current status of Naruto's Six Paths Sage Mode. There seems to be the belief going around that Naruto can no longer use this anymore. I don't know why they feel this way other than the fact that he just didn't use it against Toneri (and BTW, the movie never said he couldn't use it because Toneri absorbed his chakra- he had three days to rest and by that time he was at full power). While I don't really agree with this, it may also be a possibility. While the chakra of the Tailed Beasts still remain inside of Naruto in order to convene meetings, it's possible that he can no longer use them for battle because that chakra was exhausted while fighting Kaguya. I also think it's possible that Naruto was using some sort of variant of it in the movie instead of just basic Nine Tails Chakra Sage Mode. After all, it's possible the anime screwed up  the coloring of this mode by illuminating Naruto's skin. Also, keep in mind that Truth-Seeking Balls apparently don't regenerate after he loses them in combat, as witnessed when he only had three when fighting Sasuke. Once they were gone, I wonder if Naruto can no longer use the Truth-Seeking Balls. So what do you think of anything I just brought up?

      Naruto vs Sasuke

      Think this is possible?

      EDIT: One more thing for when you're ready to get back to this discussion. I was browsing around and found this image for Storm 4. If you've ever seen the Storm boss battles, they're usually pretty epic (even if you don't play the games, just watch them on YouTube- its entertaining without even having to play it). So far, I think this looks amazing and this is another thing I want the anime to do. Do you think something like this is possible?

    • You can't add videos of the official release without the proper copyright. Stuff from YouTube for the most part is a big no-no. Don't add anything, manga scans, scene shots, or otherwise; without the proper copyright information. Visit the Image Policy page to read up on what is appropriate to add to this site, and how to do it properly. If you need help, let me know. Otherwise, I will delete whatever you add, and if it becomes a progressive problem you will be blocked.

      Incidentally, I didn't forget about your question. I have been going over the Part I OSTs for the past few days now, and I can tell you that the theme you are looking does not have an official release title. You should know that not all of the themes were released for the general public, only the most popular. Only about 68 actually made the cut, but they are the most popular and most used ones.

      The reason questions like yours go so long without being answered is because it is very time consuming to answer it, because you have to go through each OST's songs to get the title of the song you wanted, and that is something you are perfectly capable of doing as well.
