    I'm hoping he's just using Zetsu cells to create his new body or something...

    It would make sense for him to be utilizing Zetsu cells to clone new bodies for himself.

    What is the problem? The other 2 boxes are the same price, over $100.

    If you are talking about something people watched in theaters: they just don't buy it.

    If they are going to make new animation just like they did on Himawari episode and the voice actors are dubbing that again, so I don't see why make the dvd that box price cheaper. It's the same work like the other boxes.

    Welcome to the anime industry. Every blu-ray box set is ridiculously expensive. I recall a boxset with as few as 4 episodes for a 12 episode series being around 300 USD.

    Here's my view: What Naruto was doing was recognizing the person that Obito was and who he had become again--no longer 'nobody' behind a mask. He was respecting the boy who long ago wanted to be Hokage before his life veered in another, darker direction.

    Naruto left behind his hate at the Waterfall of Truth and was able to feel compassion for Obito in spite all he had done. We're dealing with Kishi's world here and Kishi is extremely forgiving of his villains. Thus Naruto, who released his hate in the Waterfall of Truth, sees Obito as someone who lost himself to adversity (much like Sasuke)--note the references to 'I am nobody' and the mask he wore as Tobi/Madara--and was consumed by hatred.

    Naruto is not praising what Obito became or what he did, he is recognizing the Obito who found himself again, admitted his sins and did all in his power to make amends (even though he knew it was not enough). You may not like it and may not see it as such, but I believe that is what Kishi intended with that scene.

    I agree with all this, and it's also much to do with Confucianism, which is prevalent throughout Naruto. Confucianism, whether you agree with it or not, teaches that everyone is inherently good and that the core of humanity is the human capacity for compassion. It's obvious that this is what Kishi decided should be Naruto's spiritual base. So Naruto is being compassionate towards Obito and praising the innate goodness he had before he was corrupted by the horrible things he went through.

    Numbers aren't out yet.

    Whether it's main plot or not doesn't affect the sales. Kakashi Anbu DVD's outsold the War arc ones by quite a large margin except for the Naruto vs. Sasuke one. The degree of promotion the content got beforehand likely has a bigger impact on sales.

    Wow Boruto is actually doing not bad. For a new series, not really, I didn't actually see any large promos i.e. big billboards promoting it etc... Imagine if it was promoted a lot more.

    Since Oro would be a fool not to have Sauce DNA a big part of the power puff girl mix he used to make Mitsuki, I would call this a great future plot but the writing isn't that creative and there will be no Sauce DNA in new Oro mix. Oro is no fool so I will always believe Sauce and Kabuto is in that power puff girl mix.
