Avid fans of the “Naruto” manga series will have a new entertainment project to be excited about once again as its “Konoha Shinden (Konoha New Legend)” novel was finally introduced on Monday.
According to Anime News Network, the second volume of Shueisha’s “Shōnen Jump NEXT!!” magazine made the revelation.
Based on what has already been detailed, the novel will feature three protagonists, including Mirai, the daughter of Asuma and Kurenai.
With Mirai, Guy and Kakashi as the main characters of the story, the new novel, the plot of which will take place in a hot spring, is expected to “tie together Naruto and Boruto.”
It was further dished that as such, it will be set between the final chapter of the original “Naruto” manga and the spin-off “Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring.” It will also feature illustrations by Shō Hinata of “Naruto – Konoha Hiden: Shūgen Biyori.”
It can be recalled that since Masashi Kishimoto stopped producing the “Naruto” manga in November 2014, Shueisha has already come with 10 new novels patterned after the franchise, with six of them appearing in the “Hiden (Hidden Legend)” series.
On the other hand, Anime News Network shared in a separate report that “Naruto” theme song singer Diana Garnet is set to perform at the Otakon Matsuri event on Aug. 11.
Prior to singing the ending theme song “Spinning World” of the TV anime “Naruto Shippūden,” the American singer already had a single and mini-album.
It was further narrated that Japanese animation is not new to Garnet since her father is a certified lover of animé.
“Born in Washington D.C., U.S.A., Garnet was heavily influenced by her anime-loving father, and was immersed into anime culture at a young age,” the convention described the journey of the “Naruto” theme song performer. “Hearing [the Magic Knight Rayearth opening theme song] ‘Yuzurenai Negai’ by Naomi Tamura inspired her lifetime goal to become a singer in Japan.”
