Boruto -Naruto the Movie- Viewers Get New Manga One-Shot
posted on by Egan Loo
People who watch Boruto -Naruto the Movie- in theaters throughout Japan in August will receive 2 million copies of an official book — one with a brand-new one-shot manga by original manga creator Masashi Kishimoto. The Naruto Hiden Zai no Sho Official Movie Book's title indicates that the book is a spinoff of the Naruto: The Official Character Data Book series.
The book will debut the manga short "Naruto ga Hokage ni Natta Hi" (The Day Naruto Became a Hokage) that Kishimoto personally drew. The story episode did not appear in the main Naruto manga's original run. The book will also include the main manga series' 700th and final chapter in full color.
Kishimoto ended the main Naruto manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in November after 15 years of serialization. However, he has since launched the spinoff mini-series Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring (Naruto Gaiden: Nanadaime Hokage to Akairo no Hanatsuzuki) about the next Konoha generation in April.
Kishimoto had said in an interview in November that he will still have other work left to do in the Naruto franchise until this summer, so he will not begin preparing his next non-Naruto title in earnest until after that.
