  • So the naming style of Naruto Shippuden movies have changed 3 times now:

    1. -ナルト- 疾風伝 劇場版 / Naruto Shippuden Movie Version (The First, Bonds, The Will of Fire, The Lost Tower)
    2. -ナルト- 劇場版 / Naruto Movie Version (Blood Prison)
    3. Naruto The Movie (Road to Ninja, The Last, Boruto)

    I'm now a bit confused. I know everything up to and including Road to Ninja is Naruto Shippuden because of the clothing, but how about The Last and Boruto?

    I know Chapter 700 is count as Naruto Shippuden, and The Last happened before Chapter 700, so does that mean The Last is considered Naruto Shippuden?

    Or is it considered Naruto Gaiden along with everything else after this up to but not including Boruto -Naruto Next Generations-, because Sarada's and Mitsuki's manga are classified as Naruto Gaiden?

    Or is it Naruto Project?

    • Any movie that has been made after Naruto Shippuden the Movie are all based on the Naruto: Shippūden characters. There were only three films for pre-Shippuden designs. There is, as far as I know, no distinction in the movies between Gaiden/Boruto/Shippuden.

      So everything up to but not including Boruto -Naruto Next Generations- is still considered Naruto Shippuden?

      That's correct, because they use Shippuden character models. Boruto is a separate series, so is not considered part of Shippuden.

      But I'm talking about The Last, which doesn't use Naruto Shippuden models.

      But I'm not talking about the Boruto series, I'm talking about the Boruto movie, which is still part of the Naruto series due to the name being "Boruto: Naruto the Movie".

      That doesn't matter, if it doesn't include "Boruto" then it's basically Shippuden. It's only going to be considered non-Shippuden if the animation people, Studio Pierrot, create a new series titled something different for everything in the Blank Period (which is very unlikely).

      But I'm not talking about the Boruto series, I'm talking about the Boruto movie, which is still part of the Naruto series due to the name being "Boruto: Naruto the Movie".

      The film and the manga series are all part of the same Boruto series.

      You know the Sarada and Mitsuki manga right? Those are titled Naruto Gaiden. It doesn't have the name Boruto in it, so according to you, it counts as Naruto Shippuden and not Naruto Gaiden?

      I know it's a bit confusing, but it's basically the same with Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super. So the movie Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is considered a Dragon Ball Z movie, and not a Dragon Ball Super movie, even though the events happened in Dragon Ball Super as well. If Boruto: Naruto the Movie is part of the Boruto series, it would've been called Boruto the Movie instead.

    • Why would a manga count as an anime?

      Because there's no anime material that has a proper title between the end of Naruto Shippuden and Boruto -Naruto Next Generations-, other than Naruto the Movie which doesn't say much about the series affiliation anyway, so the next logical step would be to consider manga materials Naruto Gaiden as a proper title for anime materials as well.

    • But that's not what you said: "You know the Sarada and Mitsuki manga right? Those are titled Naruto Gaiden. It doesn't have the name Boruto in it, so according to you, it counts as Naruto Shippuden and not Naruto Gaiden?".

      A manga doesn't count as an anime. IF it were to be adapted into an anime, then it would most likely be adapted as a special (like Kakashi Gaiden).

      I thought about that too, but based on how the events revolve around Boruto -Naruto Next Generations- characters, I think it's more likely to be considered under Boruto -Naruto Next Generations-, or even a new title (Naruto Gaiden) so it categorises everything in the blank period, than being considered under Naruto Shippuden.

      But the point of this thread, is what series would they be considered part of. So according to @SuperSajuuk, The Last would be considered part of Naruto Shippuden, and everything after that would be considered part of Boruto -Naruto Next Generations-. But according to you, everything before Boruto -Naruto Next Generations- would be considered Naruto Shippuden?

    • I don't know why they changed the prefix so many times. There doesn't seem to be a rule to it. The Last and Boruto are considered to be part of the manga, though.

      You mean the Naruto manga? Is this officially stated somewhere?

    • The Last is called chapter 699.5 and the Boruto movie is described as the official continuation to the manga. It was also adapted into a manga now.

      But this manga is the start of Boruto -Naruto Next Generations- series, compared to Boruto: Naruto the Movie which is the end of the Naruto Shippuden series right?
