Ever wondered what copies of you must be up to in alternate universes?
I’d imaginethatme would be a childhood prodigy or a famed Broadway superstar!
The sixth Naruto movie will be out this summer and it features a life in which Naruto never lost his parents! Now if only Jo Rowling will do that for Harry!
Masashi Kishimoto, the artist behind the phenomenal manga that Naruto has become, worldwide, has said that he will be creating the entire movie, character designs and all. The basic plot of Naruto the Movie: The Road to Ninja is as follows.
Over a decade ago, the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox was freed by a mysterious Masked Man. The Hidden Leaf Village was attacked by the Kyuubi and was on the verge of complete destruction. There was only one way to protect the village – to seal the Demon Fox. The 4th Hokage Minato Namikaze and his wife Kushina sealed the Kyuubi into their new born son Naruto, sacrificing their own lives for the sake of the Village, entrusting its future to their son.
As time passed by, members of a S-rank criminal ninja group known as Akatsuki – Pain, Konan, Itachi, Kisame, Sasori, Deidara, Hidan, Kakuzu – attacked the Hidden Leaf Village! Naruto and his comrades succeeded in defeating them. But why are those Akatsuki members, supposedly all dead, here again now? The mystery remains, but all the shinobis are being praised to achieve a dangerous mission. However, Naruto, who doesn’t know his parents, can’t help but feels very lonely. Just around that time, and all of a sudden, the Masked Man returns to the Hidden Leaf Village. The mysterious new genjutsu of this man then strikes both Naruto and Sakura as well as the other Konoha 11.
Now, his terrifying ambition is revealed! Is he targetting the Nine Tailed Fox? Traps and conspiracy to Naruto and Sakura, and to the other shinobi of the Leaf Village. The fierce fight is inevitable! The movie is at its climax! – taken from LikeNaruto
While we wait for the movie to come out, I thought I’ll post some sketches by Kishimoto-sensei on the characters etc… The best part will be the flirty Sasuke and totally badass Hinata!
