It’s been a while since I did a news update. The last one I did actually received a lot of good feedback to my surprise and I was really heartened that everyone who read that post helped out one another as to where we could go to download the movies. So anyway here’s another news update, this time about shounen-genre movies.
I’ll be doing two news updates today; the first is about Boruto: Naruto the Movie and the second is about the live-action adaptation of Shingeki no Kyojin.
Boruto: Naruto the Movie
The upcoming movie’s new trailer has been released and it looks so action-packed and exciting. The story revolves around Konoha’s new generation of ninjas, which of course includes Boruto, Naruto’s son. In this story, it seems that Boruto is unhappy with Naruto’s constant absence and vows to surpass his dad to become an even better Hokage. To do this, he will go to his dad’s best friend and rival, Sasuke and request that he take him on as an apprentice.
What got me so excited for this movie was seeing the new generation of ninjas. Sarada is seen with her Sharingan, Shikadai looks almost 100% like his dad but has Temari’s eyes and Inojin is seen pinning someone down with a sword (and did anyone notice Boruto was wearing Naruto’s old tracksuit jacket at one point? That’s so adorable) – this new generation looks so promising indeed. And not forgetting to mention, the new voice actors voice acting Boruto and Sarada sound amazing, I can’t wait to see this movie the moment it’s released.
I know that many of us were grumbling and disappointed at Sasuke’s pathetic given screen time in The Last: Naruto the Movie but now we know for sure that since Sasuke will be playing an active role in this movie, he’ll definitely be appearing in more than two scenes so rejoice everybody XD
It’ll also be great to see all of the original characters again, this time as adults and parents so we’ll all be looking forward to seeing that.
Shingeki no Kyojin
A new full trailer was also released for Shingeki no Kyojin‘s live-action movie and the use of the 3D Maneuver Gear is revealed for the first time. It looks mighty cool but a lot less cooler than how we saw it being used in the anime to be honest hahahaha!
The whole trailer looks really cool and action-packed, with lots of people just running everywhere. Chaos, chaos, chaos. The titans actually don’t look too bad, realistic enough for a movie as huge as this – I actually felt a chill run down my spine when I heard the Colossal Titan roar. And might I side-track a little to say how cool Eren looks in this trailer, no? 🙂
I really hope this movie won’t let the series down because Shingeki no Kyojin is a really good story but one that involves a whole bunch of graphics and CGI, which can make the movie turn out really fake or really realistic and exceed everyone’s expectations. Hopefully it will end up standing on par to the anime with whatever slim chance it has of doing so.
And that’s all I have for you today! Which of these two movies are you looking forward to watching more? What are you looking forward to seeing most in Boruto: Naruto the Movie? And what are your bets on the success of Shingeki no Kyojin‘s live-action adaptation since live-action adaptations don’t always do their series justice? Let me know in the comments 🙂
