Naruto the series may be over, but you can't keep a good ninja down. Or rather this series is still such a sales cow they'll continue finding ways of advancing it. We've already seen that with a special side series, some comedic one shots, and a movie dedicated to the next generation after the seventh Hokage, but now we're getting the next full on thing. A new Naruto manga. One that Mashashi Kishimoto is mostly just producing... except for the first chapter, out now, which has the origin of one of the more mysterious characters of this new generation. How's that go? Find out... in the spoiler review. Spoiler Now it's been hinted at before who Mitsuki, the member of the main squad of characters including Boruto Uzumaki and Sarada Uchida, lineage is. But this chapter finally comes out and clears everything out. Since yeah like many suspected he is indeed the child of Orochimaru... as in a subject created by the snake Sanin injected with various kinds of DNA that give him abilities like Sage powers that Orochimaru wishes for him to... I'm not sure exactly of what his end goal is with this or even if it's suppose to be sinister. I'm also not sure since this mostly takes place before the Scarlet Spring how Orochimaru was even able to be let outside so easily if he was under lock and guard by Yamamto... unless Yamato really does suck that much. Point is this answers the big question for Mitsuki and gives him his purpose: to live the full extent of his life not being ordered around by the adult who control him even if that's what he is sort of doing. Honestly this reminds me of the plot of Hardcore Henry: someone agumented with special abilities wake up to find out their memories of been taken and the supposed love one needs their help to raid the supposed villianous force using them, who in turn just created them as part of an experiment to make the ultimate super soldier. Here though since Mitsuki can speak it's more of a story about the character's own internal struggle with his memories and what he's being told and honestly it's actually pretty good. I don't know why but after finishing the main Naruto series, these other Naruto chapters are a lot better written and flow a lot better. Heck I even liked the battle between Older Mitsuki and Orochimaru of how he supposedly got through his snake armor and what not. And honestly though Mitsuki was acting a bit weird and creepy in the Sarada story this makes him click more as a character. Again for a series named after Bortuo of the three man team he's the one I care the least about now. Maybe the actual spin off will do better with that but until then yeah go Sarada then Mitsuki and... I guess whatever Boruto's point is can go after that. I guess Bortuo has some connection with Mitsuki which part of me thought was cheesy for Orochimaru to say... but it makes sense as Orochimaru obviously learned how much Naruto and Sasuke pushed each other and wants to make his own kin do so to unlock his full potential so hey using that cliche to his advantage so... good on you ya creepy snake guy. Yeah guess whenever more chapters come out we'll talk about this series here so until then... talk whatever you want about the new Boruto series everyone.
