Naruto Announcement Teaser
On October 27 Naruto’s official Twitter page shared the above post that simply says 17 December 2022 #Naruto. It is a representation of the Naruto panel at the Jump Festa 2022 in Japan on Saturday. Right after the release of this post from the Naruto official Twitter page, Twitter was flooded by the same Naruto post from multiple accounts.
The post was reshared by popular Anime Twitter pages and seeing the Naruto post fans made different possible theories about the announcements on Naruto Anime at the Jump Festa 2022. Adding more fuel to the fan’s excitement Yuko Sanpei one of the voice actors of Boruto Anime stated. ” What kind of Naruto and Boruto information gonna pop up this year? I’ll be waiting anxiously along with you all, let’s enjoy it to the fullest “
What is Jump Festa 2022?
Jump Festa is an annual event that is celebrated at the end of the year. It is one of the most awaited events for Anime fans because new Anime announcements and updates on ongoing Anime are announced at Jump Festa every year.
It is considered as one of the biggest events in the Anime industry that takes place on a global scale. The Jump Festa also has Q&As, Anime Merchandise drop, Fan meets, Anime voice actors meet, and many more.
What did we expect on Naruto December 17?
Well, there are a whole bunch of things that happened on Naruto December 17 and there were many predictions and things that circulated around on the Internet about Naruto’s 17 December announcements. Let’s look at what most fans wanted and expected on Naruto December 17 from top to least later let’s get into what we got.
As everyone assumed the most wanted Naruto announcement was Naruto Reboot. The most requested thing to happen by all the fans was a Naruto Reboot on Naruto December 17. Most fans wanted to have a storyline of the Naruto reboot where the reason for the anime reboot is that Naruto is captured in Infinite Tsuykyomi and Boruto was a dream.
If this storyline was somehow able to become possible, then it would have become the biggest plot twist that Anime Community had ever seen. Other Anime plots wouldn’t even come close to Naruto’s anime plot.
Why Couldn’t We Get a Naruto Reboot:-
Although it would be a big Plot twist if Naruto was trapped in Infinite Tsykyomi and woke up knowing Boruto was a dream. Sadly it didn’t happen and also probably won’t happen ever because of Infinite Tsukuyomi.
The main reason for this is Boruto Anime is already established and some Naruto Fans like Boruto Anime too. Even Boruto Manga was recently on the #1 trending list on Twitter. They introduced new major characters like Otsutsuki God in manga and there wasn’t any stop to Boruto manga too.
Also, there are some sad deaths like Kurama and legendary Baryon mode and if Naruto Reboot happen it would all be meaningless.
If Naruto Reboot happens because Naruto was captured in Infinite Tsukuyomi. Even though most of the fans would love to see it there will be an equal amount of hate for the new Naruto Reboot Anime because of the meaning less death happened in Boruto Anime.
Also, there was a lot of production cost to the studio and the manga writers are also working on the new chapters of the Boruto Manga. If Boruto anime is canceled the work they did will be for nothing, so sadly Naruto Reboot probably not gonna happen.
But if a Naruto Reboot happens in the future of the Anime World, Then the whole internet will be shaken by the Naruto Reboot. let’s Hope the Naruto Reboot will happen in the future and some other way except for Infinite Tsukuyomi like bringing back Naruto and also continuing Boruto Anime. But what would the Naruto Reboot be like if somehow made possible?
Next on our list is Naruto Remake, it is 2nd most requested by the fans after the Naruto reboot. Even the Youtube Tycoon Mr.Beast tweeted about funding Naruto Anime for a Remake. The Naruto Remake will be a reanimated version of all the Naruto and Shippuden episodes in a new animation format.
We have already seen the reanimation of some of the scenes of Naruto on Road to Ninja released on the 20th Anniversary celebrations of Naruto. But it also did not come true on Naruto December 17.
Why didn’t we get a Naruto Remake?
There are actually a lot of reasons for not being able to see a Naruto Remake on Naruto December 17. One of those reasons was the cost of each Re-animated episode. Each episode of Reanimated Naruto costs between 95K to 150K Dollars and a whole Season cost them roughly around 9 Million dollars. So it is a huge amount of money to spend on a Reanimated Anime and so probably any big Production company didn’t want to do it.
Another popular theory was the announcement of a new Naruto Game. There wasn’t any game of Naruto for a long time. There were only 6 different game series launched since 2013. Some of them are Clash of Ninjas, Ninja Council, Ninja Destiny, Path of the Ninja, Uzumaki Chronicles, etc… And there were already 2 games on Boruto even though it wasn’t much time since its release. So fans expected a least a Naruto Game Announcement on Naruto December 17.
Why Couldn’t We See a Naruto Game on Naruto December 17?
The Naruto Game didn’t happen because of the lack of popularity of Naruto in Video Games and there were also tough opponents in the Gaming industry that made Naruto Game not possible. After Naruto Shippuden’s completion, the popularity of Naruto decreased all-time low because no other Movie or Naruto series had continued the Naruto Story.
The Naruto Anime lost the Spark in Anime Fans and in Gaming lovers. Also, the creators didn’t much interested in the Naruto Game because it decrease the Popularity of the Boruto Series. So because of all these reasons we couldn’t see a Naruto Game too.
What We Got on Naruto December 17
Our final theory and the one we got to see on Naruto December 17 was the Anime adaptation of Sasuke Retsuden. Sasuke Retsuden manga has a million reads in just 24 hours, Overtaking Dragon Ball Super and the Sasuke Retsuden manga became the most-sold manga in Japan with 16,928 manga copies sold in only 3 weeks.
Fans loved to see Sasuke back in the game through the Sasuke Retsuden Manga. So because of the popularity and ability to mix this Manga into Boruto Anime made Sasuke Retsuden possible. But what if you ask what is Sasuke Retsuden?
The Sasuke Retsuden plot is about Naruto getting the same disease that caused Hagoromo Otsutsuki’s ( Sage of Six Paths ) death and his dear friend Sasuke, finds the cure to the disease by investigating Hagoromo life story and also about Indra and Asura’s life exploring the previous generation of Shinobi.
But sadly Sasuke Retsuden didn’t announce as a separate anime. Instead, it is merged into Boruto anime and made the Sasuke Retsuden as fillers of Boruto Anime which is Sad.
Is Naruto Captured in Infinite Tsukuyomi? and Boruto was a Dream
Right after the Naruto official teasing post was released. All fans have doubts that Is Naruto captured in Infinite Tsukuyomi? and whether Boruto was a dream and did Naruto won the 4th Great Ninja War? So let’s crack them all.
The first question that came into Naruto lover’s mind Is Naruto captured in Infinite Tsukuyomi? No, Naruto wasn’t captured in Infinite Tsukuyomi and Boruto wasn’t a dream because if Naruto was captured in Infinite Tsukuyomi. Then Naruto would have all the greatest times in his life and he would always be happy without any troubles.
But in Boruto Anime Naruto faced a lot of hardships and sadness in his life. One of them being Kurama’s death and Sasuke’s losing the legendary Rinnegan. So why did Naruto have hard times in his life?
If Madara succeeded in the 4th Great Ninja War and captured Naruto in Infinite Tsukuyomi. Then we would have seen Naruto who always had good times and no troubles, or hardships in his life. And that is the Main reason for Madara Infinite Tsykyomi to ” Create a new world where there is no war and everyone is happy “.
Let’s sum up everything we know so far, There are so many reasons for not having a Naruto Reboot announcement on Naruto December 17 one of them being establishment of Boruto series.
The Boruto series is so established that there is no turning back on the Boruto series and the creators have to continue the series because some fans like the Boruto series and want to know the future of Boruto and Naruto. So this is the main reason why couldn’t we see a Naruto reboot on Naruto December 17.
Is Naruto Captured in Infinite Tsukuyomi? If Boruto was really a dream, Naruto would be very happy and shouldn’t face any hardships in his life as per the Madara dream, also we shouldn’t see the tragic Kurama’s death. But all that Naruto faced in the Boruto series is Hardships.
So Naruto was not in an Infinite Tsukuyomi and he won the 4th Great Ninja War and saved the shinobi world. Is there no way for Naruto Reboot?
