They say that you don’t really know how much you’ll really miss something until its gone, and they were right. It’s been about 6 months since the finally of the main Naruto story-line, and boy have I missed it. Kishimoto ended it at 700 chapters, and has now set the characters from the main series, with their new children on a new adventure via a mini-series titled “Naruto Gaiden: Seventh Hokage”. Today we got the first chapter titled, Sarada Uchiha, and it was refreshing.
This chapter’s focus was almost on Sarada and her longing to know her father. During the entire chapter the focus was on her almost one hundred percent of the time. From her interactions with her friends, and Boruto to her iterations with mother (supposedly). I couldn’t stop myself from laughing when Sarada saw the picture of Karin or when she confronted her mother on the relationship between her father and her. It was all good to read and very well illustrated. I’ll avoid spoiling anymore of this chapter for you and just leave you with, “Its all good stuff in this chapter”, and I hope that you all get to read it too, even if you’re not a Naruto fan. Yes it will have more impactful to those that have completed the main series, but it also has a new series feel to it that someone strange to the series can use as a gateway into the rest of the series.
This new series will slot very nicely into my weekly manga reading along with One Piece as its prequel once did. As for the next chapter, it seems to be titled Sasuke returns and that is something that I truly want to see. So till next I have something to say about this manga or any other, stay beautiful.
