I don’t know how many times I’ve typed this in the past few weeks but…here we go again: “Naruto” is ending! I’m sure you’re very much aware of this already so if you’re sick of hearing it, I apologize. The long-running Shonen series is about to come to an end but not before a final “hurrah!” which will be coming in the form of a feature length movie based upon the lives of the main cast years in the future. We also just found out that there’s going to be another short “Naruto” series which is set to come out next year, but I wont speak about that for longer than I have to because I already did it in THIS article.
Coming alongside an event this huge is always a slew of fake screenshots, images, videos and information that only work to excite and then anger the masses. In case this is your first time; welcome to the internet. “The Last: Naruto The Movie” is not impervious to this, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. A whole bunch of new design images have been leaked online, originating from none other than the infamous 4chan, that show the main cast of the “Naruto” series in their older forms. Some of which even accompanied by little kids who we’re to suspect is, well…their children.
This has blown up big time with news sites going crazy and fans going even crazier! As usually, someone called “BS” on these new images which started a huge debate that will last for in undetermined amount of time depending on what fans decide to believe. It’s fake though. How do I know this for sure? Well…I don’t, BUT the official Twitter for the “Naruto” series editorial department sent out a Tweet that confirmed this to be a bit of a prank pulled by those who actually draw the Manga. Remember though, this IS the internet so what’s real and what isn’t real is always kind of just…”up in the air”. In the end, it doesn’t really matter because these new pictures look pretty damn cool so enjoy.
