    This is an interview done with Kishi and Yamashita for the movie BORUTO.

    Spoiler: Pics






    I translated this from a Chinese translation so this is more like a 3rd party translation, I'm not that good of a translator too. But I thought this interview is interesting so I want to share it out :skysun Note that some parts may be wrong, since this is a third party trans and all so read at your own risk

    Enjoy :catdance
    -------------------------

    Spoiler: Interview
    Inter: Firstly, lets interview supervisor Yamashita. Mind telling us why are you chosen as the supervisor for the BORUTO movie?

    Yama: Because no one else wants to do it. (laughs)

    Kishi: That's not it. (laughs)

    Yama: But it's true though, I'm not that qualified, when I got invited I originally rejected them. Besides I don't have much experience, also <NARUTO> is a popular series so I'm a bit worried. In the end however everyone pretty much convinced me, I myself too decided to take the challenge.

    Inter: That time, have you thought out Kishi's plot ideas yet?


    Yama: Not yet. <BORUTO>'s airing time is on August 2015, <THE LAST>'s airing time is on December 2014, there is simply no time to make the movie in between. Besides the movie also has a part that directly links from <THE LAST>, so before <THE LAST> is done, there is no way to make <BORUTO>. That is why when <THE LAST> just ended only then there is discussion about <BORUTO>.

    Kishi: It is during Jump festa 2015's (20/21 December 2014) opening, that it is decided that Yamashita becomes the supervisor isn't it? I still remember it is decided there on the site.

    Yama: Indeed, that day was the day <BORUTO> has it's first meeting. The content pretty much began from that time.

    Kishi: Yep that's right. There's also the "After the whole year if we couldn't finish <BORUTO>'s script it'll be terrible" kind of talk too. I can still remember them. At that time after I finished watching <THE LAST>, when it just ended, I can't believe they actually used the <BORUTO>'s concept design I gave to the editor. And even put out the sentence "Airing on August". That time I suddenly panicked. Before I even get to appreciate how good <THE LAST> is, the first thing that came to me was a feeling of danger. (laughs)

    Yama: I even remembered I blurted out to Kishi-sensei " Next year Summer!?" (laughs)

    Kishi: Because it is decided that I must write <BORUTO>,I had to start from scratch for the characters, that's why I panicked. Also regarding the first meeting in Jump FESTA, I've already explained everything I wanted to do to the supervisor and every staff, I even said "If anyone has any interesting ideas please share it out" that kind of talk.

    Yama: That day, I remembered the meetings are always held until around 2PM.

    Kishi: That's because I wanted to get most of the story content and techniques settled first. During that time Boruto's disappearing rasengan is already decided, and also the last scene where Boruto and Sarada were talking on top of the Hokage mountain. Even though there are many scenarios that are undecided, the main content and overall theme must be consistent. And that main theme would be "The bond between father and son", so I used this as the main subject to explain to the staffs.

    Inter: Then after that you leave it to Studio Pierrot?


    Kishi: Nope, because most of the characters are basically new. I need to think of the dialogue, so how the story scenes played out they are decided from the beginning, then at the same time I thought of how to distribute the time frames ,overall the script is all written by me alone.

    Inter: Even the time!?

    Kishi: Yes. It's similar with an equation kind of thing. I just followed this method, and wrote the script properly. As for the fights, because I don't want to do Ninjutsu battles, so I wrote more Taijutsu instead. I've gave this suggestion before for <THE LAST>, but in <BORUTO> I felt that there needs to be even more taijutsu. Well even when I said that, I still wanted some jutsus like dogs, monkeys, chicken kind of jutsu. Then the supervisor replied me saying" Well that is a bit too...". (laughs)

    Yama: Yeah that is what happened (laughs bitterly)

    Kishi: So for most of the fighting parts I basically leave it all to the supervisor. Because the chuunin exams scene has already been finalised, and I pretty much finished writing the script. So my last advise to the supervisor would be this one line regarding Sasuke and Naruto's combined fighting scene, " Since this is the first time they fought together, this scene must be made to excite people no matter what".

    Yama: To be honest, I have no idea what to do at the time (laughs)

    Kishi: That time I felt bad for troubling you. Another thing would be the story flow, because of what I wrote, as long as everyone understands then it's fine, and then the one who arranged everything would be Kodachi. The one who thought of the disappearing rasengan is also Kodachi. When the first meeting happened I was cracking my brains on it, then he suggested "how about we make the rasengan disappear?" Even though the decision happened within a moment, to get to the final conclusion it sure took us a lot of time.

    Yama: It sure did... I still remembered I've been thinking about it for day and night.

    Kishi: That time the sketch book was still with me. The first time I finished the script from start to finish was great. That includes all of the dialogues that are written from the beginning till the end, that would be my first time too.

    Inter: During <ROAD TO NINJA> you also did the planning, story, and also the character designs I believe?


    Kishi: Even though I did quite some work on <ROAD TO NINJA>, it is not as much as this time. I did check on the entire <ROAD TO NINJA> 's storyboard, but at the time there is still the JUMP's series manucript I had to do... No matter what happens the JUMP's manuscript would be priority, so I pretty much checked <ROAD TO NINJA> until the first half then I stopped, troubling the staffs. So to avoid this situation this time, I didn't check on the storyboard. The moment I gave out the script, I leave everything else to the supervisor.

    Inter: So you really didn't check on the storyboard even for a bit?


    Kishi: Yes, not even a single glance. On the other hand, I've written the script with extreme detail. Because before I did all of this I've repeatedly watched all of Yamashita's part for the anime, no matter the storyboard or anything else they were all perfect. I felt that if I intervene just like that it would make things complicated, so I left everything to the supervior. I believed that if I do this it would benefit the project's completion even more.

    Yama: Thank you Kishi-sensei for believing in me so much.

    Kishi: Even though I heard that supervisor Yamashita doesn't like showing off, when I saw his storyboard, I felt that he is the kind of person who has a very strong sense of responsibillity in his work. If there's anything, the only thing I'm worry about would be that he is still young, there would be all kinds of pressure on him, can he handle all of this pressure? On the other hand, for all the things he’s done I never felt restless at all.

    Inter: When Yamashita is supervising this project he said it is his first time, which part was the hardest for you?


    Yama: This time the tight deadline makes it very tiring. Usually movie projects take up a year to be made, but this time we only had less than half a year. So I don’t really remember how I got through that period of time. Only thing I remembered was that it was really really tiring.

    Kishi: Indeed that sounds tiring (laughs)

    Yama: I was very busy every single day. If I had to say, the storyboarding was the most exhausting part. When the storyboarding ended, things got better afterwards.

    Inter: When Yamashita is doing the storyboarding which part of the content did he do?


    Yama: I guess it’s the later half of the movie. The last fight was done by someone called Matsumoto, he is a professional who’s very talented in creating battle scenes, I left that part to him. While I did the part before the fight and also after.

    Kishi: This time the characters have very realistic facial expressions. There are too many scenes where their facial expressions alone makes the movie very engaging.

    Yama: Regarding that, all of them are Tetsuo Nishio’s hard work. Because his skills are far greater than mine, so whatever that needs to be checked on I leave it to him. It’s just that sometimes I get confused, basically I thought “Is that really the right choice?”. It’s simply too hard to assign whichever scene to be important. Even though the script has Kishimoto’s thoughts and what he wants to express, until I actually start the project, I too have scenes I want to do. So I have to choose the right scene as the main scene, yet I can’t completely overshadow the other part at the same time. Not to mention this kind of project also involves different opinions so it gets different along the way (Not sure about this sentence), this is what I always get in trouble with.

    Kishi: But Yamashita didn’t stray off the path. I am fortunate to see his scenes, no matter how he wants to do it, to say it simply, “It’s so good!”. And then I’ll feel once again that he is indeed a genius. Up till now I never felt like this before. It is this time that he managed to express pretty much everything from my script. I truly felt it from the bottom of my heart “Having grouped with a genius is unexpectedly the greatest thing!” For example, there was a scene in the script that describes the atmosphere where Boruto wants to to reunite with Naruto. Looking at Boruto putting up his forehead protector, Hinata then remembers the young Naruto. This scene wasn’t mentioned in the script, the original script only mentions Sasuke telling Boruto saying “Lets go”, that’s all. However the director says he’d like Hinata to appear. Hinata seeing Boruto putting up his forehead protector, she then felt the presence of the Naruto she likes. This string of feelings and atmosphere is indeed touching. I want to say this, the heartwarming scenes are all thought out by the supervisor and are done by his performance alone. It’s true, my satisfaction has already far exceeded 100%.

    Inter: Are there other scenes that are done based on the director’s thoughts, leaving a lasting impression on you?

    Kishi: There is also that scene with the huge rasengan, putting in the flashbacks was also the director’s idea. That scene really left me speechless. I’ve asked my friends who had watched the movie, which part do you like, they basically said they really love this scene, so I said “That wasn’t my idea...” (Laughs). So....if I want to say whatever the director did with these are right or wrong, I believe it is right.

    Inter: The scene where Kyuubi mode and Susanoo did a fusion was very cool too.


    Kishi: Oh, that is also the director’s idea.

    Yama: It’s the same with the original series, rather similar with the jutsu Naruto/Sasuke used when they fought with Madara. At that time this jutsu seemed rather dark, this time it’s a must to make them seemed as if they’re comrades, so I slightly changed their appearance. The way the sword wielding KyuubiSusanoo fusion is written , that is Matsumoto’s idea.

    Kishi: That scene has all the chicken/monkey jutsus too , “They actually really did it!” It sure made me very happy (laughs) . I don’t think we’ll ever see it again.

    Yama: I might as well add, the chuunin exam’s second exam has it too, I guess a lot of people wouldn’t notice that...

    Kishi: I did notice! There’s fire release (bird) and water release (dog), there’s also stone release (monkey) too.

    Yama: I kept thinking “Everyone probably wouldn’t notice this” while I was making this movie (laughs)

    Kishi: After watching this movie my biggest thoughts are, the parts not written in script were written in detail. It’s the same with the emotional scenes. The scene where Boruto took out the device off his hand also left a very deep impression. In the script I’ve written, I didn’t express that part very well. To be able to produce such quality, from the director to every single staff, I can only give all of them my greatest gratitude.

    Inter: Kishi-sensei, which are the scenes that left you those deep impressions?


    Kishi: Well, since I wrote the entire script myself, while the story is developing I pretty much already knew everything (Laughs). Though that said, this particular scene, which is not written in the script, did left a really deep impression on me. Among all the scenarios, if I had to choose the best impression I got from would be the forehead protector scene I guess.

    Yama: I changed that part myself, I’m really sorry about that, kinda felt bad about it too...

    Kishi: It’s no problem, you did a really good job! There’s also that part with Sasuke’s Shishi rendan, “inverse” shishi rendan, that idea was really good! And then there’s Jiraiya’s flashback part, all of these scenes pretty much has nothing to do with me.... But I really felt that, even though the script is essential for the movie, the process of blending the performance and the music to perfection is also very important. What makes me happy is that the script never wrote this, which is when Boruto uses rasengan, his hand turned for a little. When Naruto uses rasengan at the beginning it’s also like that, I can actually feel every staff’s effort and love for the project. When Boruto got his wrist injured and bandaged, this scene too is not written in the script.

    Yama: Yep, that part is not written indeed.

    Kishi: That sure is a meaningful moment, no matter the action, the performance, or the music I felt that they’re done professionally. Then there’s the part where Naruto walks into Boruto’s room, I like this kind of intriguing scene too.

    Inter: To express the awkward atmosphere between the two, there is truly a feel of realism in that.


    Kishi: I actually personally asked them to freeze that moment for a bit. I was hoping that this scene would share the same time frame with reality, because it’s a very important scene.

    Inter: Is there any reason why Sasuke is Boruto’s teacher?


    Kishi: At first I wanted to assign someone else as Boruto’s teacher. But Sasuke in <The Last> isn’t active enough (laughs). Other than that, I even want to make a movie with Sasuke as the main character. So for the Boruto movie even though Boruto is the main character, I also want Sasuke to be more active, by having Sasuke as the teacher they would always be on screen together, that is what I thought. I thought of this idea is because I like Dragon Ball, Gohan is Picollo’s disciple no? I think this kind of situation is really good. So by becoming the rival’s disciple, I felt that it’s not a bad idea. This is a scene where I looked forward to when I was young (Laughs). Even though I don’t pay much attention to Dragon Ball, if I look back, in the end it did effect my decision.

    Yama: Dragon Ball is indeed a great series. (laughs)

    Inter: Regarding Naruto’s impression now, up till now there seems to be some changes.


    Kishi: The way I see it, Naruto being an incompetent father seems like a good idea. After all this is the first time he becomes a father. Him not getting along well with his kids, if I don’t make it relatable then there is no point in that. In the end if I let Naruto look good then he wouldn’t be able to relate with boruto. And if I wrote Boruto clashing with a cool dad, wouldn’t that be hard to relate to as well? So I didn’t plan to draw Naruto as a cool-looking hokage, rather I drew him as a bad, incompetent father. However I won’t do that from start to finish, in the end I want to show that “Even though Boruto doesn’t know much, but the young Naruto was indeed very cool!” that kind of acknowledgement.

    Yama: The first half for Naruto sure feels terrible, as a Naruto fan it does hurt me a little (Laughs)

    Kishi: With those dark circles and eye bags, all he did was sigh (Laughs). Though this particular point is crucial. If I don’t do this, the last scene wouldn’t be as cool. Just that, he became the hokage he always wanted, letting everyone see a bit of his cool side would’ve been better. But then, anyone becoming a father would have this kind of feeling I believe, after all there are people who said that about me too (laughs)

    Inter: Lastly, is there anything you want to say to the fans who are buying this movie?


    Kishi: Even though there are some comments with my work, I still think this is the perfect piece. I did said in an advertisement the last time “I couldn’t write anything better than this”, there is no lie in this sentence. I hope this work of mine would satisfy everyone. On the other hand, if there is one day I could draw something better than this, then at that mean time everyone please take care of me (laughs). At least now, this is a movie that went through all kinds of intriguing changes it became the great work of art it is now. You can also bring your friends along to watch it, if you ask them to buy the blue-ray or the DVD then I’ll be happier (Laughs)

    Yama: I want this movie to be the kind where you watched it a few times and yet it still makes you happy, so I hope everyone would watch it a few more times. And also, I just learnt this during the celebration dinner, because the staffs are a playful bunch, they secretly drew Pakkun in one of the scenes.

    Kishi: What!? This is the first time I heard of this....!

    Yama: The starting point where “Kinshiki” “got smacked away” (laughs). So this movie has this kind of small things, you can also compare the previous dialogue and previous scenes, you can pretty much enjoy the movie and at the same time find the differences too!

    Inter: Thank you!

    What I got from this is basically Kishi did not do shit. :skully
    Now I kinda feel bad for blaming him for a lot of things in this regard. :gglife


    As for Narudo being a bad father because it's his first time, it's really stupid exacuse imo. :sag
    It would have been ok if it were during the first 1-2 years of him being a father. However, he has been a father for 12 years! :lmao
    How does that make this excuse seem believable at all?

    Thanks for the translating work Haruka. Crazy to think how this movie had to be made in such a short time and still became the best Naruto movie with some of the best animation.

    Norio Matsumoto still the best :bury
    I have to say though, I don't like what Nishio did to Kishi's character designs in Boruto. Oh and I am very surprised Kishi chose the director and knows this stuff. Perfect choice with Yamashita.

    Damn Kishi roasted Naruto.

    Thanks Haruka, that was a damn readable translation if you ask me.
    What are you reading? Kishimoto said he wrote the script and then the director added in flavor touches. Stop skimming!

    Well....Kishimoto is basing it on his own experience. Of course the actuality of it is, this is STILL his first time as a father. Boruto is becoming a teenager now and that is a new (more difficult) phase of parenthood that's very easy to screw up. Little kids are easy. Teenagers don't know anything, but love to think for themselves.

    Kishimoto is still a damn good mangaka if you give him any time to plan.

    Choosing the right team, I guess he's paying attention to his peers.

    I think Kishimoto feels he made Naruto great enough that he can afford to take the piss out of him. On the other hand, his parental experience seems to be expressed in Naruto, so it's self deprecating. Thanks to a mangaka schedule Kishimoto thinks he sucks as a Dad, and apparently his friends told him as much.

    Well, Kishi did write the original script. Really, a movie is something of a group project, so I can understand other hands being involved in the entire project as it progresses.

    I'm surprised that this is how Kishi viewed Naruto. Especially when we are shown all of those photos throughout the Uzumaki household with Naruto as a hands on, doting Daddy prior to Hokagedom! If anything he appears to have been guilty of spoiling the little one's rotten early on (which is much more in line with Naruto's personality)--I guess those pics were the idea of others as well. Just the same, an overworked father is not necessarily a bad father. :notrust

    I think that with the salaryman worker culture in Japan, that an overworked father is something that strikes home very deeply in ways that even Americans can't appreciate. It could be that many Japanese fathers want more family time, but have insane hours that keep them from home.

    Still doesn't make for a 'bad' father. I think of a bad father as a physical or mental abuser not someone working himself into a coma in his attempt to prove himself worthy of his job. I find it sad that Kishi thought of Naruto in that way. He obviously put his own guilt on the shoulders of his well known character, but it really doesn't jibe with Naruto as we have come to know him.

    I think he must pay attention to certain animators that have adapted his work really well. Remember reading that when the anime first aired Kishi saw one of the animators work and it had inspired the evolution of his artstyle. Not sure if it was Norio or Nishio.

    Yeah and I think many underestimate how severe such overworking is in Japan. Just looking at some of these mangaka schedules, they barely have time to rest, let alone much to spend with the family.

    Pretty sure it was Tetsuya Nishio. He's the character designer after all.

    His animation: This is what sakugabooru has on him.

    I wasn't saying it did, I was saying that it's something that could speak to a problem in their culture that could disrupt father-children relationships.

    That is what was implied. He watches the anime production of his work and latched on to the guys who really translated it well. Smart.

    It's a terrifying work schedule. I imagine compared to working a straight corporate office job, even the nightmarish schedule of a mangaka is a dream job due to how well you're paid and you're doing something you love.
    What do you think it would be about though? I honestly can't think of too much that Sasuke could really do as a character that he hasn't been through already.

    • "That's because I wanted to get most of the story content and techniques settled first. During that time Boruto's disappearing rasengan is already decided, and also the last scene where Boruto and Sarada were talking on top of the Hokage mountain. Even though there are many scenarios that are undecided, the main content and overall theme must be consistent. And that main theme would be "The bond between father and son", so I used this as the main subject to explain to the staffs."
    So from the beginning they had this idea, and the final scene where Boruto and Sarada talk about what he will do for the future. Very interesting :hm

    "Then after that you leave it to Studio Pierrot?"

    • Nope, because most of the characters are basically new. I need to think of the dialogue, so how the story scenes played out they are decided from the beginning, then at the same time I thought of how to distribute the time frames ,overall the script is all written by me alone.
    :bury :bury Kishi

    Inter: Is there any reason why Sasuke is Boruto’s teacher?

    • Kishi: At first I wanted to assign someone else as Boruto’s teacher. But Sasuke in <The Last> isn’t active enough (laughs). Other than that, I even want to make a movie with Sasuke as the main character. So for the Boruto movie even though Boruto is the main character, I also want Sasuke to be more active, by having Sasuke as the teacher they would always be on screen together, that is what I thought. I thought of this idea is because I like Dragon Ball, Gohan is Picollo’s disciple no? I think this kind of situation is really good. So by becoming the rival’s disciple, I felt that it’s not a bad idea. This is a scene where I looked forward to when I was young (Laughs). Even though I don’t pay much attention to Dragon Ball, if I look back, in the end it did effect my decision.
    Good job Kishimoto :cat


    • Kishi: The way I see it, Naruto being an incompetent father seems like a good idea. After all this is the first time he becomes a father. Him not getting along well with his kids, if I don’t make it relatable then there is no point in that. In the end if I let Naruto look good then he wouldn’t be able to relate with boruto. And if I wrote Boruto clashing with a cool dad, wouldn’t that be hard to relate to as well? So I didn’t plan to draw Naruto as a cool-looking hokage, rather I drew him as a bad, incompetent father. However I won’t do that from start to finish, in the end I want to show that “Even though Boruto doesn’t know much, but the young Naruto was indeed very cool!” that kind of acknowledgement.
    I see :hm

    Now explain why you made Sasuke such a shit father :cat

    Isee. Always thought Norio's art had a good resemblance to Kishi's.
    Why the hell did Nishio do such a meh job in Boruto :catslam

    Wasn't RtN meant to be a Sasuke film but Kishi got denied by SP?
    Kishi make the true Sasuke film you were always meant to :catslam

    How about that 5 year + mission that was just glossed over :catslam
    Or his redemption journey, or his travels with Sakura, or him raising Sarada :catslam

    We know next to nothing about Sasuke’s life post Shinobi War.

    -His redemption journey
    -His journey with Sakura
    -His journey for Kaguya's threat.

    Sasuke has traveled so much how can they not find material to cover?:psyduck

    Please come back this once Kishi. It's a movie, you don't even have to draw. :catsad

    Yeah but most of Sasuke's mission is weird. What would the story consist of? Sasuke wandering around and noticing things? Unless they retcons villains, it would fit being more of a one shot with no actual dialogue. Like Sasuke wandering dimensions, and doing stuff (like detective work with his Rinnegan).

    Though a Sasuke Movie would be rather interesting, especially if it's grouped with Sasuke by himself, and no supporting cast bar new characters for the one shot itself (like Sasuke meeting characters on his journey).

    There is nothing that can be done about Sasuke's Mission.
    Kaguya's dimensions are empty and no one lives there. Kin & Momo went there, later on, trying to find Kaguya as well!
    And from the first scene in Boruto the movie, it's obvious that they haven't encountered each other before.

    Other than that, Sasuke's character completely revove around itachi, and everything regarding that is already done and overused.
    Unless Kishi is planning to show, for the trillion time, Sasuke's flashback with itachi. :mlpshrug

    You guys act like we know everything about Sasuke's mission. His mission has hardly been written and relevant content can easily be added, in fact its just asking to be written considering how glossed over it was.

    Him raising Sarada? Sakura raised Sarada, Sasuke is just support. He's got her back....wayyyy back.

    Don't say five year mission man, you make it sound like Star Trek.

    Actually that would've been cool. Frankly Sasuke getting caught in Mugen Tsukiyomi would've been cool just for the scenes of him growing up with his family.

    Now you see you touched on something much better than his mission about Kaguya that's worth seeing that I forgot about.

    Sasuke's redemption journey. Before we found out that he was making sure there were no other threats out there beyond Kaguya, I thought Sasuke meant he was going to take a look at the world with fresh eyes.

    Sasuke as a roaming ninja looking for good in the world and lending a helping hand was something I wanted to see. But honestly that's more of a miniseries than a film.

    I feel bad though because I don't particularly want to see Sasuke: The Last, even though I suppose it would be genuinely cool to see Sasuke be kind and caring with Sakura for five minutes. Sakuar would also get he biggest feat of the series, namely melting through glaciated tundra Sasuke calls a heart. Sasuke's trope should be called Permafrosted Ice King.
