Masashi Kishimoto: Sakura Interview (Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie)

Last week the legendary creator if Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto, talked about Naruto and his parents. This week on Japanese television show Sakiyomi Jan Bang, Kishimoto-sensei talks about the Leaf Village’s pink flower, Sakura Haruno!

Kishimito-sensei mentions that even though he would have liked to write some scenes with them, he hasn’t had the chance to include Sakura’s parents until now. In his mind, he had the image for Sakura’s parents, which include back-and-forth arguing matches, but he just never could find the right time to do so. With so much of the manga release, he thought nobody would have interest in them at this point, although he still decided for them to be in the movie.

Next week, Kishimoto-sensei will talk talk about the characters who gave him the most trouble! From what we’ve garnered here at Anime Games Online, that includes Shino and Sai, but we’ll have to see for sure next week.

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.
