As we have a 10 minute OVA, I will mention its small content so you might consider this as a review that has spoilers so I recommend watching it before reading this but it won’t make too much difference since its name is a spoiler itself.
The day when Naruto became the Hokage, 700 chapters, 15 years, about 700 episodes so far and here is the long awaited moment. Many people have grown with this story, and as one of them I’ve been waiting for a long time to see the main idea finally been accomplished. I remember long time ago hearing stories from young Naruto
fans (now much older) about how they imagine its ending, and now when I remember it, these stories were much more complex and interesting with many good ideas, compared to what we were given.
Supposing a viewer has seen at least the last 2 Naruto movies, watching this may lead him to a thought that this OVA was supposed to be one of the movies’ scene. We also have all rights to question about how serious we, as fans, are taken and how much people behind this serie care about their fan base.
When it comes to the other aspects of the movie, it has an animation that can be seen in the, already mentioned, last 2 movies. Sound tracks are here to make a good enjoyment as Naruto always does. I don’t have anything to say about characters, since the OVA is really short, however it feels great to see how some of them have changed but it’s nothing above the nostalgia from watching it for such a long time.
Overall, I gave it a 4/10, it could be lower but I see this as a compromise between my high expectations, nostalgia and the reality.
I've watched Naruto since I was 9/10 and now I am 20 so Naruto holds a special place in my heart as I've grown up with the series. The Shinobi world filled with the different regions and unique characters each with their own story and special power was so captivating for me. Watching the small, troublesome and ostracized kid grow up to be a fine man who saves not only his bestfriend but also the world and becomes know worldwide as a hero is very fulfilling. With the announcement of Boruto series, an overwhelming surge of nostalgic thrill was in me! Naruto is finally able
to create a family he always dreamed of - he will no longer be lonely!
This OVA introduces us to the family life of Naruto Uzumaki with his beloved wife Hinata Hyuga with his adorable daughter Himawari and mischievous son Boruto! Watching this was so nostalgic as Naruto is finally able to achieve his lifelong dream of becoming hokage! Of course not everything goes to plan with Naruto and he misses part of his special day!
The short OVA story is simple but tells us so much more about the feelings and development of the characters for Naruto's special day! The sound was perfect with the light hearted signature Naruto OST and I fully enjoyed this!
Listen, I don't know why I'm reviewing ten minutes of footage, but my self-rule is to review everything, so here I go.
This is nice. Not in a boring way, I mean it's a really warm and sweet little piece of work. If you don't want to watch Boruto, but you want an idea of what Naruto and his family are like, check this little movie out. I think it's really cool that something was animated to show Naruto becoming the Hokage, although, it would've been cooler if it were an OVA. How am I being picky about ten minutes? I know, I know, but this
is a review, yeah?
No, but like... I'm just saying that, if it were an OVA, we could've seen Naruto be emotional about finally realizing his dream. We could've had that on top of the funnies that constitute these ten minutes. I liked what was there, but I would've loved to have some material on the more serious side of Naruto becoming Hokage.
That being said, this little thing is really funny, and if you love Naruto, you gotta watch it.
