[Manga] Kishimoto's interview at Jump Festa 2010
 
It's time once again, time for Kishimoto to regale us with his many promises for future excitement that never seem to come to pass. That's right; it’s time for another Jump Festa interview.

Just to be clear, this is a manga thread, so spoiler tags are not required (as so long as you are talking about Naruto). Otherwise, standard rules of conduct and etiquette apply (be courteous, etc).

[Manga] Kishimoto's interview at Jump Festa 2010

Quote:

Kishimoto answered a few questions during Naruto's panel at the Jump Festa. Unlike in previous years, the session was short and Kishimoto didn't reveal much.

Translation was done by takL at NF.

- Naruto's voice actor teased Kishi about his "Year of Kakash" comment at last year's Jump Festa.
- Kishi apologized and said Kakashi would play a much bigger role in 2011.
- Shikamaru and Choji(!) will play important and heroic parts in the war. (I guess the Fourth Division will get major spotlight.)
- Nothing on Naruto, Sasuke, or Sakura. Naruto's voice actor didn't even ask about him.
- Kishi explained the Kakashi part. He planned big things for him this year, but they will pass over to 2011.
- He has been planning a lot for the last year. (I guess he means the war.)
- Weird sequence. Naruto's voice actor says something about dreams coming true and Kishi that will be true with Choji. (Maybe there will be a better translation for this. Choji had dreams?)

I am sure the other characters will do something, since they are doing things now, but no one asked about them. Kishi seemed more interested in talking about Kakashi and Shikamaru. They most love their laid-back geniuses over there.

And if Kishi can make fans care about Choji, than I am declaring him a better mangaka than Oda.

Struggler 2010-12-21 00:16

Nobodyman9 2010-12-21 00:30

"I promise, guys. This is really really REALLY gonna be the year of Kakashi! (and Shikamaru and Choji)"

Nintendo 2010-12-21 00:38

LadyKikyo91 2010-12-21 04:18

Huh. Sounds good. More emphasis on Chouji and Shikamaru but what about Ino?

Kallen4life 2010-12-21 06:40

Shika's ok, I guess Choji too .. and yeah, Ino should get some as well

Fran~ 2010-12-21 07:58

Ahh... you d*mn troll

I don't believe anything from you... stop the lies and get back to work!....

Haak 2010-12-21 08:08

Lol. No one cares about Naruto...

They would have cared if he had stayed dead.

I hope "The Year of Kakashi - The Second Chance" is more than just him beating Zabuza. Could a Kabuto or a real Sasuke fight be on his plate this year? The problem with those fights is that he will have to lose so Naruto can show up and win.

I do hope there is a lot of the Fourth Division. Shikamaru was a given to be important. Forget Asuma, I wonder if he could have a mental battle with Kabuto? That's why fans should never call the secondary characters fodder. Even though sometimes they are treated as such. Clearly people like Shikamaru and Gaara are not. I just hope Temari gets to be heroic with them too. Choji is surprising though. He doesn't have a large fanbase, so there will be negative reaction at first. But if Kishi can elevate him, then fans will likely change their opinions of Choji. Then he will be popular. Plus who doesn't want to see Butterfly Choji again? Choji being a big hero would be very cool.

The interview had a few more things, but they were about Kishimoto personally. He has worked through holidays, but soon he will be taking a vacation to Hawaii. :D He also likes sweets now. Particularly some green tea sweets. But he is too shy to go into places that sell sweets by himself and always takes his wife and kids.

I noticed that. The mangaka and his own seiyu didn't even bring him up. Either did the audience. I guess they expect him to continue training. I think this also might show that his new jutsu didn't exactly capture the imagination of the readers. It's just another variation of the rasengan. I remember other Jump Festa interviews where Naruto's new jutsu was eagerly discussed like the FRS.

Well, looking at what happened during the past year, Naruto himself didn't exactly do much. Or to be more accurate, what he did was pretty underwhelming and/or boring.

I mean, there was the aftermath of the Pain fight where he thought that becoming a punching bag would bring world peace, then there was when he groveled at the Raikage's feet, then there was the ''confession'', then there was his fainting when he realised that everyone was going to war against Sasuke, then there was him saying that he'd rather die than allow Sasuke to die, then there was him beating his dark side by hugging him, then he went to train again. Oh and he started acting stupider than usual near the end of the year.

Other than that, he didn't really do anything for a good chunk of the year. I guess Kushina telling him about the night the sealing happened sort of counts, but that was more of a flashback than him doing something. The year was defined by Sasuke trying to kill Danzo, The Kage meeting, the setup for the war, Guy beating Kisame, and Madara.

So I'm not surprised no one is really intrested in what's in store for him, since it's pretty obvious what we'll happen (the rematch against Sasuke) and everything else will be a rehash of things we'd already seen.

Ulquiorra 2010-12-21 15:36

Naruto was the focus for most of 2010. Sasuke ended his fight with Danzou in January 2010. Then we had the brief Team 7 reunion in Feb. After it was all Naruto. More prophecy stuff, heading to Gilligan's Island, island nonsense, Killer Bee interaction, Dark Naruto training, Kyuubi training, powerup, his origins, backstory on his parents, more training, being treated like a child by his babysitters, more training, powerup.

The only real break was Kisame vs Gai and Madara vs. Konan. So what should scare Kishimoto is that he has been focusing on Naruto for the past couple of years, but fans over there don't care. Either they find it boring like Arabesque said or they lost interest in what the main character is doing. You can argue that Naruto has really fallen since after the Pain fight, where once again, Kishi made Naruto lust over focus on Sasuke.

If Naruto were on the front-lines of the war, fans would probably be more into what he is doing.

I also wonder if Kishimoto is building Shikamaru up to be Hokage? Either Naruto dies at the end or declines becoming Hokage to travel the world like Jiraiya. Or takes up another position more in line with his growing Church. Pope of the Naruto World!

Chouji's dreams...more chips?

I don't think so... Shikamaru said that he wants to be at Naruto's side, that he will be an important Ninja. Besides... in the second door for the next Hokage is Konohamaru. I can foresee a battle between Naruto and Konohamaru (in good terms) for the title, at least, i would love that. Konohamaru will be constructed like Sandaime, he will be an elite Ninja, with Enma as his summon and Hanabi as his girlfriend :D

kakashi kills kabuto, i called it. every since he gave him the slip at the hospital ive had a feeling kabuto will be killed by kakashi

Kafriel 2010-12-22 08:00

Naw, Kakashi is the assassin of the group. I think Kabuto will be done in either by Sasuke or Shikamaru, first because he's Orochimaru-related, second because he's into mind games like Kabuto.

If Ino becomes a guy, she'll get emphasized too :P

New chip flavours!

I think the main cast shouldn't lose focus for a long time...but maybe nobody asked because they know exactly how things will go!
