. He does his best.
(FYI, he did not illegally film this
) Go check him out sometime.
But the point I'm making is I got to see The Last Naruto the Movie
I have to say, of all the Naruto (and Shippuuden) Movies, this one is got to be my favorite. For a number of reasons...
Go watch him for the best NaruHina comic evah!
Watch him too!
But seriously, I didn't just see it for the (obvious) NaruHina fluff and eventually win. This movie helped answer at least one question I had that the epilogue didn't answer: What happened to the Sage of the Six Path's brother?!?
Turns out, he went to the mooooooooooooooon!
To protect the body of the 10-tails' body. And that the Hyuuga are descendants of his, which also answers where their eye-jutsu came from. His direct descendants are then like the Hyuuga clan, except the Branch family killed them all with a small Death Star
I kid you not. They had a mini-stone Death Star to kill the Main family, except for one (who I and others have affectionately called, "Zombie Ninja Jesus".)
So anyway, but to review. As a fan, the movie kept me on the edge of seat to spot anything of particular interest. The villain was just a lonely guy who just wanted to get laid (and destroy the Earth, no big deal
) A lot of the movie was towards getting Naruto to realize his feelings for Hinata.
(Naruto's got a fan club. Lucky bastard.
Not too many characters really shined through. Shikamaru is at least noteworthy. Sakura is there to help the relationship. And Sai... comical relief
And you know how Sasuke is on the cover on the poster?
Yeah, he has like two scenes of nothing interesting, and then one arguably badass scene of saving Konoha. Really? He's just on their so at least 40% of the fanbase takes some interest. Hell, let's just put Hanabi on it. She freakin' cute through the whole damn movie
This is literally her throughout the whole time she's awake.
There are some cool fight scenes and even a monster battle. I was so hoping to hear Kurama throughout the movie commenting on something. Maybe he'll be like director's commentary.
God Dammit, Naruto! Just fucking kiss her already!
At least he got to write a message on the moon saying 'Mission Accomplished'. He wasn't even in his chakra form either. He wrote it like a flesh and blood creature.
Also fyi, you can breathe on the moon in the Naruto-verse.
Yeah, they end on the moon's inside and then end up battling on the outside. No one was exploding (well, almost). On some level, I could understand. But when you also have non-combatants on the moon's surface, it's just like what? How the...?
Honestly, this is a NaruHina shipper's dream fanfic come real. Every time something NaruHina happened, our theater was like
And of course, the ending...
Suck it, other Naru shippers!
(I kid, I actually also like NaruSaku and NaruFuu
And finally, Sasuke is still an asshole.
That is all.
The Last Naruto the Movie will be succeeded by the next movie, Boruto: the Naruto Movie coming by the end of the year. I can't wait to see that one, and before then there's the new DBZ film too. That's gonna be awesome too!
Overall, it's a good anime movie for a good series. Naruto isn't officially done yet, and I can't wait to see what more there is left. (I want my questions to be answered, dattebayo!)
And so, I leave you with one final note...
