The official Naruto website on Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump online website posted up a teaser page with a “countdown to the next generation.” The webpage features a silhouettes of various characters from the Naruto series, the next generation of soldiers including Boruto, Sarada, Shikadai and so on.
Fans looked at the inner workings of the page to find the tag of the page with “Naruto” pointing to this definitely being something from Naruto/Boruto. The countdown ends on the 19th of December at 3:30 pm, which is the first day of the Jump Festa convention.
Previously, Kishimoto mentions “I’ve already decided what I’m doing for my next work.” He goes on to say that “While I was still doing Naruto, I thought about various things for material, and for the next one, I’m thinking I’m going to do science-fiction.”
“It hasn’t all been worked out, and I haven’t showed my editor yet, but I’ve already designed the characters.” He goes on to mentions “Since Naruto was a bigger hit than I could ever imagine,” Kishimoto said, “I’d like to aim for the next hit. I don’t know when I can announce the next manga, but because I plan on challenging myself to surpass Naruto, please wait for it.”
Seems like Kishimoto is working on something big, although we won’t see it for a while. On top of which, from what I can tell, I’m not sure if this is going to be another manga or anime series. It might just be some sort of game or something short term. Nevertheless, what do you guys think? Go ahead and comment down below telling me how you feel.
