    According to MH, it was supposed to be serialized but Jump considered it too violent and bad.

    kishi can still draw, don't forget the first drawing was done when he wasn't even serialized, he had all the time in the world to draw it, now he has to draw this one-shot while still drawing naruto at the same time.

    I wonder if it's really going to be 160 pages like he said back in part 1, that's way too long for a one-shot, he's probably going to have to condense it down or maybe a mini-series?

    The first pic looks much better than the ad. The 2nd one just look like someone from Naruto waring a suit.

    That's because the first pic is from 15 years ago when Kishimoto's style didn't look like a shitty lineart from Deviantart

    obviously cause it's the same style. The original drawing was done when kishi was in his otomo clone phase, and of course the first ones better, kishi didn't have to worry about strick naruto deadlines.

    I miss Kishi's sketchier art style. Naruto used to look pretty good till the end of Part 1, when suddenly everything was too clean and plain. Wasn't his art change because Jump told him to clean things up so the anime could work from it better?

    yeah jump didn't like all those lines kishi was drawing all over his characters. but personal I loved the clear style kishi had at the start of part two and mid way. It went down hill from there though, with a good looking chapter coming out every now and then

    His mafia guys are probably going to get involved in awkward homoerotic staring contests instead of gunfights and will spend entire chapters screaming about how much emotional pain they're in and that's why they're getting revenge on society by being gangsters

    Fucking hell, his old art almost reminds me of Katsuhiro Otomo's.

    What the fuck happened, man?

    Yeah - but Kishimoto never really gave a fuck about Naruto. I'm curious if he can right well if it's actually something he WANTS to do. Mario seems like the project he's always been dying to write.

    So we'll see...

    its the same author? from reading his work for such a long time i can tell this author doesn't understand people. his characters are forced and often makes no sense. relationships are shallow. the way conflicts are solved is most of the time very naive. story contradicts itself. his gags are cheesy.

    and nowhere i said i already read this oneshot. but judging from the authors track record my expectations for anything he does or ever did is very low.

    to get a feel of what this could be like, you can read some of the stuff kishi did around the time he first write the manuscript for mario.

    What does an ad have to do with deadline? Are you seriously trying to tell me that the art in that ad isn't as impressive, because he was on a deadline? This isn't Naruto dude. That ad is probably from a volume release right? So he had more than enough time to work on it.

    I'm with Aldric on this. I really don't like how his art has developed. It hasn't gotten any better since the old days. Usually a mangaka gets better and better drawing his manga. Imo that isn't the case in Naruto.

    The ad is probably from the one-shot that's coming out this 2nd of may, did you even read the op :giogio and second you clearly know nothing about comic artists, suggesting a weekly published artist espically one that works for shuiesha ever has "more than enough time":facepalm.

    Let me explain this carefully so you can understand, the image from that ad is from a one-shot that's going to be published in square jump this may, weekly mangaka work all year round (excluding holidays) there are no breaks for these guys, kishi is drawing this one-shot while joggling naruto duties at the same time, you'd have to be an idiot to expect the artwork to be at the same level as the original drawing which he did when he wasn't even published and didn't have shit to worry about.

    A chapter is coming out next week in WSJ along with the regular Naruto chapter.

    Though I heard it will be a side story instead of the main story that will appear in Jump SQ in May.

    Why NF hates Naruto so much is beyond me.

    But I too am interested in how this'll turn out.

    I'm actually really looking forward to reading this. I remember early part 1 volumes of Kishi talking about this. I've been wanting to read it ever since.

    I imagine most people joined when Naruto was a pretty decent series, and now just stick around for the other sub sections. The series has been slipping since Part 2, completely falling to pieces in the tedious war arc.

    I don't think Naruto's quality should put people off checking Mario out though. I feel Naruto's decline in quality is partly down to editors and popularity determining how things should go for big sales over quality storytelling.

    Yeah, I know. I was assuming he'd worked on it on his days off, because it's a oneshot. And not trying to sqeeze it in while doing his weekly manga.
