Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie fever is on in Japan as today is the theatrical release date for the movie! To get fans excited, two new 15 second Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie commercials have been released! Both show Naruto, Minato, and Kushina bonding as well as Leaf Ninja bath scenes in na English-subbed fashion!
In one of the trailers, Kushina and Sasuke mention “Menma,” that is what they are referring to Naruto as. Anime Games Online isn’t sure what it means in the context of the movie, but according to Wikipedia, menma is “a common topping for noodle soups, notably ramen”. Could be what Kushina and Minato named ed their son in the alternate reality?
