I can't stand Naruto (some of the worst information conveyance I've ever seen in a comic), but I enjoyed Mario quite a bit. So I'm sort of excited for another Masashi Kishimoto one-shot.

I agree, though I think that's mostly an issue with Kishi trying to follow Shonen battle formula and not doing a particularly good job of it. He seems to do best with stories set in more realistic settings.

Is this a sign that Naruto is coming to an end? He's preparing a new manga? If It's gonna be a sports manga a massive amount of people will be disappointed.

This is a one-shot from 2010, so no its probably not his next series.

This one shot came out when there was like a competition of one shots being written by famous mangakas.This was by far the best one that there was ,and all this time I was thinking how it should become a full fledged manga.I hope that after Naruto is finished,Kishimoto will be writing this.

It's a one-shot from a few years ago. I don't get why people would be disappointed. I love sports series. We really don't see enough of them here in the west.

I agree with this. Really hard to find fans of good sports-related anime/manga like Slam Dunk, Hikaru no Go (Go is considered an intellectual sport), Ashita no Joe and Star of the Giants (yes, I know many of these are hella old, shut up).

I wonder if we'll see more one shots that haven't made it here yet to fill in for bleach's absence for the next few weeks...

I didn't know that when I posted, that's even worse. With One Piece on break next week too SJ is going to look pretty "thin" next week in particular. No wonder they're running a one shot from a few years ago.

With Cross Manage now gone and only a few more weeks of Jaco I hope viz is planning some announcements soon.

I liked it much more than the current Naruto chapters and Kisjhimoto's other one-shot, Mario. Don't miss it!
