    They just need to stop making it monthly. It kills the hype.

    Even if they did the rehash, that would have been 10 weeks at best.

    Not almost a whole year.

    It's not just that the story is bland and the art is really bad. It's number of things that is affecting it imo

    No doubt that the art threw people off the first round.

    Right now I couldn't care less for it though. The story is important and it took almost 2 years for us to learn some stuff

    It's not just because of the recap. The manga is well into original content and sales are still dropping.

    Their original content wasn't that exciting for the payout of a new year.

    Even now after reading the newest chapter I finally feel that we might get somewhere.

    Or .... not :catprone

    When I say 'new content' I'm not just referring to the Mujina Bandits arc—but the Ao chapters as well. I'd imagine most people buying the volumes already read the chapters in WSJ. If cats don't like what they read, they're not going to buy the volume version.

    Next volume contains Ao fights, Koji and Kawaki debut. If it drops again...then yikes.

    I saw some buzz on social media about the possibility Koji being Jiraiya. It could gain interest...or it could backfire.

    Thing is we don't know the actual total sales because we don't know how many digital copies it's selling.

    I only stay hyped for 2 or 3 days after the chapter releases. Monthly wait is brutal. We still know next to nothing about the antagonists or where the story is going. Its frustrating.

    Same. I find myself not caring about Boruto's manga until it comes out, and then the week of it coming it.

    But the release dates are not consistent which makes it even more frustrating.

    It's definitely a red herring

    More like 30 weeks. You have less than half the content Ikemoto draws with a weekly.

    Yep, that's an issue for monthly manga. Sometimes I even forget a chapter is supposed to come out even if the series is good. Like for Ajin. I had a blast binge-reading chapters but it didn't feel the same when I had to wait a month for realease. For now I just stoped reading it until more chapters come out.
    I can't do that for Boruto because I would probably end up being spoiled, whereas nobody talks about Ajin.

    Bi-weekly release could be good too tbh. There's a WSJ+ series currently doing that and it's pretty enjoying...

    I'm liking Ikemoto's art tbh

    The story I'm really liking in it's concepts the only issue is again, its schedule. That's the main thing killing it. The anime I'm still very optimistic since from what I see it's very popular despite most of it being a prequel with a small percentage being the manga story.

    Making the anime seasonal won't help it. If anything it'll kill the series since a year won't help the manga progress. In my opinion, ditch the manga if need be. Keep the story on the anime since that's what's closest to success, especially now that it's on a better slot.

    What would be the signs of the manga getting desperate?
    -Sudden weekly/biweekly schedule?
    -A new artist(srynotsry ikemoto)?
    -Kishi comes back?

    Drawing covers is different from taking over an entire series. Plus he's gearing up for his new Sci-fi series so I really think he's done

    ya doubt it too
    most we will see from him is a one shot or one chapter of naruto before the new scifi to get people to tune in or maybe a cameo of naruto characters in there..which would really make sense...unless its dimension traveling or some shit...tho thats a long shot and wouldnt really work

    I'd always had thus theory that what if time passed slower in kaguyas dimensions? Like sasuke spends a month there and he comes back and its a year? I wish they'd been more creative with his otutuski mission and expanded on it tbh- they could've added a lot of cool. Shit



    But no we get sumires team in catsuits - _-

    Honestly, I'll probably check out his new manga. Maybe, by some chance its better than Naruto. I'm a sucker for sci-fi stories.

    I don't know where Boruto fans get this idea from.

    Perhaps you guys see DBS and think Boruto is like that.......DBS did great in TV weekly rankings with its ratings and massively boosted Dragonball sales in all mediums.
    The only rating we got from Boruto is an all time low rating for the franchise and there has been a decline in Naruto's franchise strength since Naruto ended.

    Monthly is not going to help poor story pacing, planning and a lack of excitement.
    Attack on Titan is still incredibly popular despite being monthly as well. Its not the deciding factor in success.

    Kishi is not going to come back to work on Ikemoto/Kodachi's crap. If he ever was to come back, he would continue working on Naruto.
