From the 48th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine come brand new scans of The Last: Naruto the Movie. The first shows a sketch of a mysterious character by Naruto author Masashi Kishimoto for the movie. This character is teased to be linked to the original manga in some shape and form, however, his identity and that link is not revealed. What is revealed is this man has kidnapped Hanabi Hyuga, Hinata’s sister, and it’s up to Naruto, Hinata, Sakura, Sai, and Shikamaru to bring her back home safely.
Two weeks ago, it was teased the moon was near collision with Earth and doomsday was near. Based on that and the reveal of this new mysterious character’s actions we can infer he has something to do with the impending doom.
Also revealed is Sasuke Uchiha’s complete outfit! A chibi version of him is shown in the scan, but we get a better idea of how he will look in the movie.
Last are colored versions of Shikamaru, Choji, Sai, Rock Lee, and Tenten’s sketches!
