Naruto fans in Japan, how lucky you are! The first 1.5 million Naruto fans who go see Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie this summer at Japanese theaters will receive an original DVD titled “Motion Comic Naruto”. This 34 minute long DVD rebuilds the Naruto world with computer generated representations of the original manga artworks. Additionally, the DVD shows the creator of Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto, draw the cover of the DVD, provide commentary and participate in a long interview.

The discussion for the original DVD spawned from Kishimoto-sensei himself along with a few key editors from Shonen Jump during Japan’s Golden Week earlier this year (April 29 to May 6). With Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie coming out next month, this lead the creation time for the original DVD around two to three months. From planning to the actual drawings to staff selection to production of music to shooting the interview, much effort has gone into the creation of this original work! If you ask us at Saiyan Island, that is tons of work in a short amount of time! And to put the work into numbers – it has cost over 100 million yen ($1,252,030 US Dollars) to produce Motion Comic Naruto!

There will be other gifts Naruto fans in Japan will be able to obtain, including a special Naruto Miracle Battle card.

Also known as Naruto Shippuden the Movie: Road to Ninja, Naruto Shippuden Movie 6, among others, Road to Ninja is the 9th movie overall in the Naruto series. It will debut in Japanese theaters July 28, 2012. Naruto’s creator, Masashi Kishimoto will be personally involved with the movie, creating the story and providing character designs.

    I wonder who’s wearing that funky mask? His hair looks like Yamato’s but he has a beard.

    what makes me wonder is the fact that what seems to be Naruto standing on Kurama vs another Kurama. Could it be that in this movie, Naruto is already bff with Kurama, and they face the Kurama ( the one that’s most likely with Kushina ) in the Genjutsu?

    Probably Tobi in a different mask. Either Naruto is Hokage or he’s in Sage mode? with a happy to work with Kurama   Da F?

    If you see the trailer of Road to Ninja again you can see the guy with the weird mask is in the picture frames you know where they say “Creator: Masashi Kishimoto” and stuff?

  • Tobi

    that doesnt explain why he’s fighting kurama, its as if kurama was split in to and he’s fighting the other half, well actually kurama did get split  into so that may explain it, but it probably happened under different circumstances rather than minato doing it

     I seriously wish I could get my hands on this DVD D: I hope someone copies it, subs it and shares it around.. won’t be able to get my hands on a original copy :P

     I was commenting on 2 seperate things lol the mask guy is probably Tobi, the 2 Kurama’s idk

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_I26T5S34AY4UDT7IJF6HWYS3CE Anthony

    Wait!!! What if the mask guy is Naruto?! I remember seeing in the 1st trailer the concept art of Naruto and that mask was next to him!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_I26T5S34AY4UDT7IJF6HWYS3CE Anthony

    My other comment is in review but it can’t wait!  The mask guy I think its Naruto. Go watch the first trailers for RtoNinja and pause it when it shows the Naruto concept art. On the right you see that mask!

    Apparently, there are two Naruto’s. There’s the one we know and than there’s an evil one with an evi- er good Kurama ? Anyway the guy in the mask is evil Naruto of the genjutsu world, which makes since because of Kurama vs Kurama and why Kushina is in fighting mode. Plus hair shape looks identical to Narutos. This is all uncertain but pretty certain.

    The funny thing is how wrong Grimmjow66 is, It is already known this movie is set in alternate reality created by a gen jutsu by Tobi… Naruto does not have sharingan people… lmao should have realized that…And no just because it is a movie does not mean naruto will have sharnigan ahaha

  • Assassinator

    I think that the real Kurama knows that Naruto is in a genjutsu so he helps him fight alternate Naruto and alternate Kurama.
