This is rather disappointing. But then again you cant please everyone and I've just never been a fan of baseball.
i like the idea that Kishi is trying something different other than doing the same sh*t over and over just to please some "idiots" out here who want to see the same sh*t done over again, but more "creatively".
"Bench" looks promising for a one-shot and i hope Kishi does other one shots that hopefully get picked up. the "Yakuza" based story looks interesting and probably would be more seinen than shounen.
you know what, f**k Naruto. there i said it.
so whos the protagonist better not be the fat guy lol
in my opinion they all have weird noses...there like buttons!!
It's a classic manga/anime style. It's sort of a tradition for mangaka to draw faces in similar ways to the artists that inspired them the most.
For example, if you look at the works that influence Kishimoto, you can see where his artistic style comes from. Same for his brother, Seishi. Doraemon, Dragon Ball, Yu Yu Hakusho, Ninku, and AKIRA are all things that Masashi has noted as being influences on his work.
Well, I don't see anything particularly appealing/interesting from reading the spoiler. Mmm. That's not really fair though, it's a one-shot in the end. I'll just wait for MS to release it before anything else atm. ^^
chapters out on mangastream looks reall awesome
im amazed how kishi pulled this out i see this manga becoming shounen weekly in about 1year good oneshot,hope to see it
Are you serious? I barely made it through typesetting that crap. Felt like Kishimoto was forced to make it with a gun up his temple. Horrible cliché story, with no climax at all (which is even more lame considering this is a short-story) and bad drawings.
It was a waste of my time to work on it, really...

I liked it.It was not "omgwtf",but i liked it!
I liked it, nice work Kishi =D
really this wasnt that bad but i felt kishi could of done better with the story he had plans to do alot of one shots but he sadly chose a baseball one the story for me was terrible he really could of done better soooo boring.....
Wow.... I'm trying to think about how i can phrase this nicely. I think this one shot is really bad and i mean REALLY bad. I can't think of a single thing i read that seemed original.
What can i say that's positive? Um...the characters aren't terrible. Of course, in truth that's only because they have been stolen from Naruto. Sakura, Naruto, and Sasuke are all in this series and only disguised with terrible facial artistry.
My conclusion....please god in heaven don't let Kishimoto waste his talent on anymore of this.
