The mangaka for Boruto, Ikemoto, not to be confused with Kishimoto plans to keep Boruto within 30 volumes
Shueisha's Manga Plus website published an interview with manga creator Mikio Ikemoto on Wednesday where he stated that he hopes to finish the Boruto manga within 30 volumes. He said that he hopes to keep "the entire saga" (including the 72-volume Naruto manga) within 100 volumes.
This year's 27th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that the magazine's next issue will have a "big announcement" for Ukyō Kodachi and Mikio Ikemoto's Boruto manga on June 10.
Credited to Altiora Night: So we basically have a single person who alone, is stronger than Kaguya... and on top of that, he’s the leader of an organisation with members that can trade blows with Noodles & Sauce.
It wasn’t so much Momoshiki that Kaguya feared but Jigen, The NEW GUY. It seem as tho Kaguya was his retainer?
As much in the same way as Momo and Kinshiki, Kaguya also came with a partner whose rank clearly exceeds hers. There's is also the presence another duo to there right but it's kinda hard to make them out.
Koji wasn’t joking when he said that the world will soon come to know of the terror that is Kara. They’re THE SHIT.[\spoiler]
Last month plans were revealed to move Ukyo Kodachi and Mikio Ikemoto's BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS manga from the pages of Shonen Jump over to V Jump magazine. Now that time has officially come with the arrival of V Jump's September 2019 issue, which hit stands in Japan on July 20.
The debut included a cover feature and a color spread.
Ukyo Kodachi shares his stance on sexual orientation
Boruto writer Ukyō Kodachi shared his support for LGBTQ representation in fiction on Twitter on Saturday. He argued that LGBTQ characters ought to exist in fiction even when that aspect of their identities is not a plot point, and revealed that in his own stories he regularly decides on the sexual orientation of his characters as another way of making the story's setting come alive.
Kodachi was responding to a tweet that argued that the reason why LGBT elements don't tend to appear in anime and films is because of Chekhov's gun, which is a dramatic principle that states that every story element must directly contribute to the overall narrative. Kodachi wrote: "No, that doesn't explain it. If that were true, then heterosexual characters would also have no reason to be heterosexual. If you look at my work, there are cases where a character is LGBTQ even when it's not brought up in the story. It's the same thing as having a straight character, even when the plot doesn't delve into it."
He went on: "Loving somebody is natural, and you don't necessarily need a reason to portray something that's part of nature. Wouldn't you be bothered if someone told you not to write straight characters because there's no reason for them to be straight? It would bother me. After all, even putting aside sexual orientation, you establish characters by coming up with details about them.
"Oh, but it's not like I decide the sexual orientation of my characters randomly like I'm rolling dice. I just decide whether my characters are straight or gay or so on even when that's not the main theme of the story. In my opinion, it makes the world I'm depicting feel more natural and alive."
Just saw this on my Twitter feed. Oh it just hit me so hard. I really feel bad for Sakura despite how her character was in the series and the reactions. She doesn't deserve that especially with how Naruto had ended in a supposedly happy ending.
I think the shipping wars wrecked and made things controversial.
Old Man Dream: For the Pixar films from the poll I did up to yesterday, I'll be watching A Bug's Life first.

Taka: I'll be back later tonight. Hopefully, my internet will get better and stay stable. It's randomly disconnecting.

Old Man Dream: Something I hate doing when I had initially promised, but having second thoughts on the Pixar movie viewing I promised. Four months going through the retrospective has me itching to want to dabble back into older anime titles again.

Old Man Dream: Yeah, sorry guys. But I'm reneging on this. Been immersed enough in Disney the past four months and want to get back deep into things with anime. Maybe down the line, I'll do a Pixar retrospective if I have enough a case of anime burnout. But back to anime

Taka: I'm not sure when to do the seasonal derby for Winter 2021 since Netflix or other companies might pop up a new anime.

Old Man Dream: Guess even with Weathering with You, Shinkai's still dabbling into his typical storytelling involving long-distance relationships, at least when it comes to Hina and Hodaka's circumstances. Only about an hour into the film thus far.
Jan 16, 2021 15:40:36 GMT
Old Man Dream: Hmmmmm.... And can't believe I'm saying this with my indifference for both: Your Name > Weathering With You.
Jan 16, 2021 18:32:40 GMT
Old Man Dream: Done with the film. Think there's enough with this where I can put a review together. Expect something up sometime later today.
Jan 16, 2021 19:19:02 GMT
Taka: Planning to watch Weathering with You. I don't remember if I watched all of the older Shinkai films. There is a shift from the sad romance to happier romance if I'm not mistaken.

Taka: Watching the Maleficent live action movie.
