  • A user from Wikipedia and me are wondering if this book has sketches in regards to Naruto's, Sasuke's and other former protagonists in their adult forms. We managed to find their young adult forms but not the ones from the Boruto franchise.

      Well, the Boruto guidebook had sketches by Masashi Kishimoto about how he designed Boruto (a contrasting outfit to his father), Mitsuki (features to give hints about his heritage) and Sarada (a mix between her parents). We've been wondering if Kishimoto also talks about the adult designs of Naruto and his allies but found nothing about it. Does anybody know if it is available anywhere? Cos it's important for those articles since Naruto became Featured while Sasuke is close to that. Anyway, thanks for posting other interviews about the series.

      If this helps, I believe adult Naruto's harstyle was based over Obito's. Since Naruto found him to be a cool guy, and understood his dream to be a hokage, maybe the short hair came from his wish to be similar to the Hokage, Obito wanted to be?

      Though I don't know where Sasuke's style stems from. Maybe Itachi?

      In the The Last guidebook, Kishimoto stated he thought about making Sasuke a guy who doesn't like knowing his identity so he often covers his face (most notably the Rinnegan) with his hair. On Naruto, Kishimoto did not say a reason for his shorter hair but he said he wanted Naruto and Sasuke to have contrasting appearances.

      Yeah, but him out of nowhere having short hair seems to symbolise his respect towards Obito and for his sacrifice?

      I mean, he also takes the time and effort to deploy Shadow clones to help the old people in the village, just like Obito. While it just was a hunch, I think out of all the other role models he had(namely Minato, Jiraya, Kakashi, etc), he chose a whole different hair style from his old one, that matched the one with Obito's. So it seemed to me that he did it in respect for Obito's long lost dream to become the Hokage, which he is right now. The short hair, really doesn't seem out of nowhere well. This is just my own honest opinion, though.

      Huh?

      And to add to my last comment, I just noticed(or I think I noticed) that adult Naruto and (childhood) Obito's clothes also have the same design. Like the stripes in between, while adult Naruto zips in his jacket, Obito most of the time, zips it out. And that and their personality and actions(helping the old people) and their hair(Adult Obito's hair and Adult Naruto's hair) seem alike. It's safe to say that it can be that adult Naruto's design was based over Obitos childhood and adult syle. This is just my own honest opinion, though.

    • Curiously Hokage Naruto's outfit has reverse colors in the Boruto manga

      What part of my sentence eludes you, it means exactly what I said I love me some Kishi-certified sketches especially considering I find studying author intent within a series to be my main area of interest.

    • In the Boruto movie guidebook I only found the designs by anime designer Tetsuya Nishio in regards to the adult characters but they don't say anything about how they were made. For example, in The Last guidebook, Kishimoto explains that he gave Sasuke more facial features to make it clear he is older than in Part II/Shippuden. Maybe is there a guidebook or artbook that explains the designs?

    • Oh so they're not drawn by Kishimoto...a shame.

      Tetsuya Nishio has always adapted Kishimoto's designs when it comes to anime. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetsuya_Nishio

    • He's a character designer who Masashi employs to translate the designs from Manga to Anime yeah I figured that one out for myself.

        Loading editor
    • Nishio hasn't commented on the illustrations for the Boruto movie guidebook other than describing him. Still, Kishimoto is the main designer similar to how he made the models for The Last, and also drew both the series' finale and Sarada's spinoff

    • Stumbled across artwork that i believe is from Boruto: Naruto Next Generations DVD BOX 2 book, which features characters from the Sarada Uchiha and School Trip Arc with different English names than our own.

      Thanks for the sketches but sadly there is nothing about author notes since they appear to be Nishio's adaptations

    • Are the sketches drawn by Kishimoto or someone else?

    • Well the anime isn't written by Kishimoto and neither is the Manga but it makes sense that Kishimoto would still be involved in the creative process to an extent. Maybe not as direct as Toriyama is with DBS but something of that ilk. So I think he may have had a little involvement in these sketches but not much.

    • According to this http://www.spirallingsphere.com/2017/06/ukyou-kodachi-talks-about-kishimotos-extremely-carefull-supervision-of-boruto/ Kishi worked as a supervisor for episodes 8 and 9, when Boruto starts reacting to his Jogan (his right eye)

        Loading editor
    • As a supervisor yes but he is no longer involved in the actual creative process which is quite telling really when you compare Naruto to Boruto as stories.

    • I see. Still, I think the writer of Boruto's tv series is the same guy who wrote the Boruto movie alongside Kishimoto. Still, I heard that he came up with the idea of the flashforward of Boruto vs Kawaki and gave the writers the freedom to kill the Seventh Hokage if they want it. Don't remember it well.

      Also, for the ones who might not get it well, I'm aiming to expand this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sasuke_Uchiha#Design with his adult design's comments

    • Masashi did write that movie but the tv series is now being written by 2 guys called Makoto Uezu and Ukyō Kodachi.

      Also, awesome
