  1. Re: Prologue and First Chapter of Boruto : Movie Novelization

    @Mangang
    @nichendrix

    As far as the usage of "criminal" goes, I think everyone's more or less in agreement. Konoha did bad things, Sasuke did bad things - no one's innocent.

  2. Re: Prologue and First Chapter of Boruto : Movie Novelization

    I always found the whole issue of morality and enmity in the Naruto-verse to be very murky. Shinobi aren't marked out as "evil" because they kill - that's their job. They become "evil" when they...

    I meant that post more in jest than anything else. I'm actually agreeing with your prior point - Naruto never thought truly ill of Sasuke, unless you count the moment when he got close to it and...
  4. Re: Prologue and First Chapter of Boruto : Movie Novelization

    Sasuke left Naruto, Sakura, Kakashi, and the rest of Konoha behind. I don't think anyone should be denied the right to feel pissed off about that. He betrayed the team and broke the trust of his...

    I think I like Itamachi's idea - that Kishi could have used the opportunity to be creative and given Bolt a new kekkei genkai due to his interesting genetic combo, as opposed to a higher number of...

    Well, I don't want to start another big war over Bolt's powers. But when you put things in perspective and look at where we began, we've come a long way since having even one kekkei genkai looked...

    If this is real, which I suppose it is because the translator put a link up for buying the novel online, then Bolt is indeed OP. Oh well. I think I'm over it now.
