Seriously what's the context here
@MrWonka, There was a bonus sketch where they were all participating in the ninja Olympics, in this scene they were all waiting for the bathroom. It was actually a funny bit.
@MrWonka, They even had major villains and wanted criminals waiting in line. I think some were even dead at this point
@Rolling Pandas, I loved these bits when they came up. I remember one where they had everyone, heroes and villains alike, all coming out if a recording room after the ep finished
I watched the beginning of the first episode and decided that the entire show doesn't exist
I didn’t think it was that bad? I’ve stopped watching because I can only watch so much Naruto at a time but still
@Awc123awc, I hated the major jump in technology and the look of the villages and how big a jerk boruto was. Honestly I just couldn’t stand the show.
@George Feeny, I don’t really know why those things made me hate the show so much but I just couldn’t get into it. It just felt like Borutos problems were all so common place compared to naruto. Plus I didn’t like Boruto as a character, I mean yea naruto should probably have been around a hell of a lot more since he could have clones at the house every night even if the real him was forced to stay at the office but honestly Boruto always comes off as a spoiled brat.
@Awc123awc, So I’ve watched through the travel back in time arc, and here are my main problems with the show so far:
1) Boruto never truly struggles. He does not experience loss or failure. Literally the one time he “lost” something was when he was caught cheating during the chunin exams and called out by his own dad. You’d think that would humble him, but he actually has the audacity to blame his Dad for cheating in the first place. Also he cheats in a fight against his best friend shikadai, who for a FULL EPISODE was upset with him, then NEVER AGAIN. Like even when there are consequences for his actions, Boruto does not learn from them nor is he sincerely affected by them.
2) Boruto fights opponents WAY beyond his level and either goes even with them or is just shy of beating them until help comes. I’m talking people from the Kaguya clan powerful here.
3) All ally characters become literally useless to allow Boruto to shine (EX: See Sasuke “I’m out of Chakra” Uchiha). Cont.
4) Although lore-wise, Boruto is a smarter and more proficient ninja than his Dad was at his age, everything is just SO incomprehensibly easy for Boruto to achieve. There is no conflict/war/motivation for Boruto to train for, and yet when he is challenged to learn a new technique, it takes him literally a day to MASTER it. Boruto himself says he doesn’t want to become a hokage and doesn’t really care much about anything. He just wants to do things “his way.”
5) Boruto always comes up with a solution to a problem which involves everything working out and having everyone except the bad guys coming up on top. There is no tragedy like Haku and Zabuza, or Asuma, etc... nor anything close to it ( EX: Iruka taking a hit for naruto and nearly dying, which shaped naruto’s whole ninja way).
6) I could go on but I’ll just end by saying Boruto is a one dimensional, poorly written character, who’s character development pales in comparison to even a minor character like Choji from Naruto
@airguitarpro, remember tho, naruto had no guidence until he got acknowledged by iruka..
boruto is also decended from the 4th hokage, who was known to be a genius, and hiashi hyuga who in himself was a highly skilled taijutsuist, yes he doesnt have the same struggles as naruto did, but naruto also had his parents die, and was made a jinchuriiki as a baby that made the village hate and fear him, at the time of becoming a genin naruto had nobody in his circle to help him, and was shunned by the village and seen as a nuisance by everyone, where as by the time boruto became a genin, he had the guidence of naruto and hinata, as well as his aunt hanabi and gransfather hirashi, not to mention hatake kakashi, sarutobi konohamaru, iruka, and had the acknowledgement and support of the village from the start since naruto was his father, yes he had no major issues, and the issue with his father was because he felt abandoned by naruto over the village after naruto became hokage...
think about it
@airguitarpro, this way, and they even had this as a filler, if minato never died, naruto wouldnt have had 80% of the struggles he did
