Hello folks! Sorry for not being able to update this section of the journal lately
But here I am with some fresh news about our blondie
So apparentlystarting from February 4th, fans in Japan will be able to purchase the Uzumaki Naruto Illustration Collection. This is a 114-page art book with visual creations by Naruto series creator, Masashi Kishimoto.The front cover features our hero in his part 1, Shippuden, and chapter 700 forms. A week later, the back cover has been revealed and it shows Naruto’s rival in those same states! While Part 1 and Shippuden Naruto are powering up a Rasengan, Part 1 and Shippuden Sasuke are teaming up to launch a Chidori from their hands!
No word on when the art book will be available in any other country, although we do anticipate it will make its way to North America at some point in the future.
Do we have some members from Japan who managed to get their hands on this book? Maybe they could share with us some interesting snapshots?

Side Story Books
Big news guys !!
When Naruto ended a few weeks ago, along with a Naruto Part 3 by series creator Masashi Kishimoto, it was revealed a series of Naruto side story books would also be published.
The publisher behind the Naruto manga, Shueisha, has today announced the topics of those official books.
Each will be written by Akira Higashiyama, the scriptwriter behind Naruto Shippuden Movie: Blood Prison, with new art by Kishimoto-sensei himself
. Known as Naruto Hiden (Naruto Secret) as a series, the books will be an epilogue, telling the story about the characters and locales after the end of the Naruto manga. Below are the titles of each in the order they will be released. Although we did not note a date, we assume they will be released in 2015 in Japan.
Kakashi Hiden (Kakashi Secret)
Shikamaru Hiden (Shikamaru Secret)
Akatsuki Hiden (Akatsuki Secret)
Gaara Hiden (Gaara Secret)
Sakura Hiden (Sakura Secret)
Konohagakure Hiden (Hidden Leaf Village Secret)
We've got a new trailer of Naruto the Last and also two OVA's :
Naruto OVA 10
Naruto Shippūden: UNSG anime cutscenes
Naruto OVA 11
Naruto Shippūden: Sunny Side Battle!!!
You can watch them on Naruget.com
Unfortunatelly there is no english subtitle for the last ova but it is pretty easy to understand what's going on
I won't tell you about what it is because, I don't want to be a spoiler, but also I would love to hear what you think about it after you watch it
15 years and 700 chapters of Naruto, a fixed deadline every week, a truly amazing accomplishment only a rare form of person can attain.
Lets take a look at the legend of these series
Masashi Kishimoto’s workspace is equipped with a figure of Dragon Ball Z’s Goku, volumes of the finalized versions of his Naruto manga, various types of other Naruto goodies, an iPad, a cat, paper, a variety of pens and markers, and a bunch of items for the artist to potentially draw inspiration from.
I wanna know your general opinions on the ending, just answer this poll:
Let's make it easy, no middles, did you like Naruto ending? [click to vote
We are getting Naruto part 3
Joy to the world! We've all been hoping for it and in Spring 2015, we will be getting it! Naruto part 3 has been confirmed and it will focus on the new generation. That's the children of Naruto, Hinata, Sakura, Sasuke, and others. Part 3 will be a mini-series and not an extensive work like Naruto part 1 and part 2 were.
Unfortunately it won't be Kishimmoto Sensei's work .
Sheuisha will also print a series of Naruto side story books, beginning with one about Kakashi by Akira Higashiyama, the scriptwriter Naruto Shippuden Movie: Blood Prison. This is all a part of Naruto's New Era Opening Project.
Hopefully this will end the haters from both sides: Naruto and One Piece, Eiichiro Oda (creator) just made an amazing tribute for the Naruto ending at One Peiece chapter 766:
(Clean image, no circles)
- The red circles mark a "secret" message that says "ナルトおつかれさんでしたになってる" (Naruto otsukaresan deshita) = "Congratulations from your great job all this time, Naruto" (translated from spanish)
- O in the title as the Konoha symbol
- More Konoha symbols in Nami's dress
- Naruto (food) in the fox's back
- Eating ramen at Ichiraku's and finally
- Can you spot who is eating with Luffy behind Nami?
Also the title of the image give us fans a great message don't you think?
And he also said: "Both my Rival and Friend! Fifteen years in serialization together with me. Really, thank you Mr. Kishimoto for your hard work!"
This was an amazing and kind thing to do, also because many other mangakas has shown their respect to the series which makes me feel so proud as a fan of Naruto
699 scan spoilers
Just in case you wanted more SPOILRES
I just saw some raw colour scans from manga 699, I won't tell what's on them but it makes me feel happy and warm inside to see them despite of the obvious sadness because of the near ending
You can check the 14 colours pages HERE and remember BIG SPOILERS
News - Spoiler !!
A new scan for the movie shares new details: The Last: Naruto the Movie takes place during a Winter Festival in the Hidden Leaf Village.
Ever since she was little, Hinata wanted to give Naruto a scarf as a personal gift from her to him. However, a mysterious man has appears, with the intent to kidnap Hinata. He fails on doing so and instead captures the wrong person instead – Hinata’s sister, Hanabi!
The mystery man’s true identity is Toneri Otsutsuki, a descendant of Kaguya Otsutsuki, the progenitor of chakra who once took on Naruto and Sasuke in a battle of life and death. He appears with a team of puppets to in front of Naruto and friends and dominates them with overwhelming power.
He then captures Hinata as a battle to protect Earth from the crashing meteorites is reaching its limits. As with all scans, we’re left with a tease! The scan mentions a “True End Plan” is in works, but what does it entail!? And what is the sorrowful destiny between the Otsutsuki clan and Hinata’s Hyuuga clan!? As the last day of Earth nears, everyone’s feelings will crash across time!
Also in an interview Kishimoto Sensei said that this movie is connected with the manga so.... that means that NARUHINA is CANON !! that also explains why Naruto had his arm bandaged !!
We also got a new trailer of The Last Naruto The Movie and we find out who is going to be the 6th Hokage... Kakashi!!
NEW THEORY !!
Apparently there might be a reason why both of them have bandages in their new designs, they could have injuries from their last fight.
What do you think?
Also we finally get to see Hinata's new character design and confirmation that everyone will survive the war .
BIG NEWS: NARUTO ENDING THIS NOVEMBER 10TH
Could it be, could it be??
Some (for me) sad news just arrived moments ago, Naruto Manga is close to its end:
"The official website for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump announced on Monday that Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto manga will end in this year's 50th issue of Shonen Jump on November 10."
full news here
This is honestly really really sad to me so how do you feel about this??
Let's make a bet Who do you think it's going to win the fight ?
How are things going there for you?
Ok so this question is for those who have already read the latest chapter of the manga : Do you think that the Sasusaku pairing still stands a chance ? or you take Sasuke's words as final?
remember that for a moment he thought about his family and said something like " love is just a thing from the past "
How are you today? Any news you want to share with us?
This week's discussion topic: Describe what you felt when you saw the last pages of the previous chapter of the manga ( Chapter 691 )
I personally I was on the brink of tears when I saw them, it was bittersweet .
Hello dear members !
First of all I want to apologise for not being able to post any new discussion topic and to thank you guys for your patience
Ok so here we go !
What is your general opinion regarding this war arc ?
From my point of view I think it was quite good, a lot of crazy things had happened, and during this arc we saw a lot of character development for almost every character.
It looks like Naruto is really going to end soon but still there are so many questions that need to be answered. And from the last chapter we saw some great panels with Madara and I guarantee that it is going to be something big, he is gonna do something I know that, I'm just praying that he remains a villain and doesn't turn good like Obito
Which character moves set do you like the most? For example let's take Naruto
Harem no jutsu
SPOILER (for anime watchers)
Kakashi of the Sharingan
So I want to know what ya'all think about Kishimoto's plot twist with Kakashi. Kakashi needing to become the sixth hokage, the Kamui shringan finally reunited and passed on to Kakashi from Obito and all that.
Personally I like this twist, as in my opinion Naruto is way too young, immature and inexperienced to become hokage after the war. Just because he is strong, has fought many battles, and has been given powers by Haguro it doesn't make him fit to be hokage just like that. Yes we know the one who becomes hokage is the one aknowledged by the people, and Naruto may have achieved that but I figure he is still to young. I'd reckon that if Kakashi becomes hokage he'll mentor Naruto as his successor or something like that.
So what are you guys thoughts on this?
Hello, folks !
Describe Naruto in 3 words .
Me: handsome, silly and brave
Did Hagoromo give Naruto better powers then Sasuke?
Hello, folks !
Does anyone else think that Sasuke got the shot end of the stick when it comes to the abilities he's gain from the Sage of Six Paths?
Let's take a look at Naruto's list of abilities; almost every advanced chakra type, flight, truth seeking balls, a Sealing tech, and Healing powers, along with whatever else the 9 bijuu can give Naruto.
While Sasuke on the other hand only got one Rinnegan only used for teleportion, black lightning, and a new susanoo with wings.
From my point of view Naruto isn't significantly superior, but it's just that the bijuu are pretty useful, Naruto was pretty monstrous even before his upgrade , and he's found himself in situations that give him an opportunity to shine
What do you think?
"Suwappu no basho" - Swap Places in Japanese - Sasuke's One Ability and it's limits
Hello, dear members
So the topic of this week's discussion is about Sasuke's new ability
Sasuke's ability is on the same transmission speed as Minato and Tobirama's but it does not require a weapon or a touch with a seal in order for the transmission to work, whereas Minato and Tobirama's does
Unfortunatelly Sasuke's ability is limited in distance whereas Minato and Tobirama's are unlimited, and he can not switch places with his eyes closed.
f there is anything you would like to add feel free to comment. Also who do you think is the most advantaged :Sasuke , Tobirama or Minato?

The best villain
Hello, dear members
Regarding the last chapters from the manga, starting from 679 to the last chapter, is Kaguya a better villain and character than Madara?
I honestly believe that Madara was a better character even though Kaguya might have surpassed his powers but I really enjoyed the fact that he never stopped surprising me, and by the way he really loved to dance
What do you think?
