‘Boruto: Naruto the Movie’: Masashi Kishimoto Nostalgic On Series: ‘I Am About To Cry Tears Of Joy’

“Boruto: Naruto the Movie” creator Masashi Kishimoto has said he felt nostalgic to drawing “Naruto” series. Will Kishimoto return to illustrate more related series? Read on to find out what are the chances.

In his biggest public appearance at the New York Comic Con 2015, Kishimoto, 40, favored the fans by drawing one of the “Naruto” series’ favorite characters, Jiraiya.


Kishimoto said he was embarrassed because he has forgotten quite a bit to draw the character, but confessed he missed them.

“Actually it’s the first in a while that I actually drew Jiraiya or any character from Naruto, so I did have a little bit of nostalgia, but also I have to embarrassingly admit, I don’t quite remember how to draw Jiraiya!” Masashi Kishimoto said (via Anime News Network).

After drawing Jiraiya, Christopher Butcher, the moderator of the event, made it more emotional for Kishimoto when he requested for a trailer of “Boruto: Naruto the Movie.”

When the trailer ended, Kishimoto really missed drawing “Naruto” series that he confessed, “I am about to cry tears of joy.”

During the announcement of “Boruto: Naruto the Movie,” Kishimoto revealed in one of its trailers that the movie was the pinnacle of all his creations.

But is there a possibility for Masashi Kishimoto to return and illustrate new “Naruto” series? According to him (via Anime News Network), it’s a 50/50 chance.

“If I decide that I want to do more Naruto stories, perhaps I will, perhaps I won’t,” Kishimoto said. “Just that there is always the possibility.”

Kishimoto also said he is not working on a series related to “Naruto” as of this moment. Nevertheless, he revealed he’s creating a new sci-fi series.


Kishimoto, however, did not disclose the details about his upcoming sci-fi series because he feared others might steal his idea.

Masashi Kishimoto’s “Naruto” series got a total of 72 volumes while his “Boruto: Naruto the Movie” had a box office net of US$20.9 million.
