  • Boruto and the gang arrive at the advanced technology research institute in Ryūtan City and surprise surprise it's Sumire, who is following in her scientist father's footsteps. You'd think after 6 years she would stop wearing that dress, and instead wear something cool like her attire from Nue's attack on Konoha. New characters, new weapons and a new mission. How'd did everyone enjoy the chapter and ideas on where the other academy students are in the world?

    How would you rate chapter 18?

    • Fun chapter, and the art has stepped up again. Not much to really discuss, though, apart from the need to categorize different scientific ninja tools on the wiki.

    • The highlight of the chapter for me was the puppy :3

      It was an OK chapter if you don't take personal considerations into account (like how I've been expecting a Konohamaru chapter for the last two months, and it looks like we're not even going to get one).

      Seeing Sumire here is great, can't wait for Iwabee to show up too. :) It's a little out-of-place for here to be here though, I would've expected someone like Denki to take a job like this.

      The last one is exactly the same thought that I've came up too. Yeah, the choice of Sumire working in scientific ninja tools team seems completely random, especially since she's rather well-suited to be a fully-flegded kunoichi, with her battle skills and such.

    • Art got better, no doubt. Good seeing Sumire, like her character. I like Nue possessed Sumire better but the soft one is chills. Also idk why I didn't recognize Akita being in Kiba's clan from the minute I saw her last name.

    • It's just, just...Too much Technology.I mean, when are we gonna see robot edo versions of the old ninjas now?I'm pretty sure it's gonna happen soon enough.Atleast I hope the vessel isn't something like that.

      The question itself is, why are they improving so much now? At the time of peace?I mean, Ninja's barely get to use their abilities, to improve and now we have this? I mean, I know that I said in my previous posts that Naruto and Sasuke will probably be even matched by these technology stuff.But couldn't they have just that genetic stuff? Like Oros experiments.Improving Ninjas with the cells gained from the old war ninjas and giving out new abilities with freaking looks.The CM and all was fun.

      I truelly wonder if the rise of Kara was due to this advancement in technology, maybe they were of people who respected the old ways? Yeah, Kawaki guy did say that he wanted the end of the shinobi.But couldn't it have been due to the newer ways of the Shinobis? I mean couldn't they just be people who hate how technology took over their ancient traditional Ninjutsu?

      And finally, I guess I was right about the manga slowly showing the anime as mentions and probably flashbacks.I guess now Boruto knows that he has an eye.And I guess, like I said, he might have forgotten or just ignored it as a mistake or him just imagining things out.I guess we can expect the next chapter to have a fight or something, with Boruto eventually having the need of using the technology or in a twist, realizing that he shouldn't rely on it much.Who cares which now.

      I did.And I think with the sound remover device, it would probably be the same thing in a different way. I believe the user has to close his/her eyes while the device is in play.And then wait off until the lights fades out and get behind their opponents, who would probably be still in blindness by the light struck on their eyes.Remember Sarada said she has to signal her comrades when they have to use it.or else they'll be effected as well.So I think the signalling thing is meant to close their eyes till the light fades out with their opponents temporarily blind from it and thus have a oppourtunity to attack in the open.Good device, but would it even work against people who wear sunglasses? Just asking.

    • I am pretty sure in later chapters the ninjas are gonna realize than all this technology isn't good , or needed. Honestly the only ninja I can accept using technology is Denki , but he still has to use his own technology , and it has to use his own chakra ,similar to haw TenTen was with her weapons.

      Didn't Kishimoto intend to add more technology to the Naruto series but never found the place for it? I remember him wanting to add technology like the Kote pretty much from the start.

      As to other things... how is the Chakra Saber any different from Danzo's Windblades? It's stuff we've seen prior, slightly recast.

      Katasuke isn't making this stuff for Naruto-level ninja. he's making it for the other 99% of ninja. Wallclimbing would be useful for mundane humans, flashbangs can be useful in combat, the chakra saber is just Danzo's windblade but in a slightly recast shape.

      Am i the only one who remembers Sasori? Flamethrowers, prosthetics, chakra shields.... Advanced technology has always been a part of Naruto. It's just becoming more common.

    • I mean, in the Boruto v Kawaki battle neither of them was wearing a kote or some device.They seem to rely on their curse mark, which will most likely be tied to "jutsu". There is no doubt however that the ninja devices will play quite the role in Boruto's story, since even the Kara members are using them.

      I think it's Kodachi's answer to the huge power inbalance, by adding technology for lower-tier ninja so they can more reasonably keep up with high tier ninja.

      A lightsaber is pretty much just a hilt though. It's not exactly a unique-looking design. Star Wars' popularity made it their "thing".

      Chakra sabers and light sabers are not the same thing. making a sword of ligthing saber is not the same as the light saber. and Star wars is a ripp of flash gorden and star trek and valenrian.

      They only need to report on what went wrong. It's extremely unlikely that whoever or whatever caused Konohameru to not report, is still lingering around. Besides, Shikamaru also says Boruto knows of protocols and is expected to act accordingly (IE if he does encounter trouble, fall back and report)

      Not the first and almost certainly not the last time we had characters with weird ages. Whether intentionally (yagura looked younger than Naruto but was confirmed to be older) or unintentionally (half the time Itachi looks way older than he's supposed to be).

      Not sure what that has to do with it. I've met people who looked much older and people that looked much younger than they really were. Not commonly, but it happens. But 20-something people don't suddenly look 30+ because they cough up blood.

      I don't like that Akita doesn't have the fang markslike the other Inuzuka. Yeah, Sarada's design in the manga does feel rather over sexualised. It's the heels and the short skirt I really don't like, I much prefer her other outfit with the shorts and the thigh highs, at least it doesn't feel so... exploitive?

      Bambusek wrote: Manga version of Sumire looks younger than her anime counterpart, despite being around 6 years older xD

      Umm, it's nowhere close to six years. In the anime they're about to go for Graduation, and then we have the Momoshiki thing a few months later, then up to where we are now, so it's maybe like a year at most?
