    Kishimoto's new Sci-fi Samurai manga is out!

    You can read the first chapter here:
    https://readms.net/r/samurai_8/001/5863/1

    The panels are too full for my liking, idk what to look at at moments haha but I kinda like the story and the theme. Reminds me oddly of Digimon and Dragon Ball seeing the housing and them getting masks from the beasts.

    Can't wait for next chapter!!

    I've read the first 8 chapters so far (at the point of this comment) and let say... It's kind of meh?
    First off, I'd like to give a plus point for Samurai 8 thanks to its totally different setting than Naruto. The world does not stuck in a single planet but rather, expands to the space. I don't see any trace of "Naruto-ish" elements. And that is a good thing because we all know how difficult it is for authors to come up with new story, especially for an author who already wrote an extremely popular series for 20 years.

    Characters-wise, I'm still not impressed. The main protagonist Hachimaru reminds me alot of Naruto, which is not necessarily the bad thing. But this character still does not have any significant personality or development for me to feel interested.

    Story-wise, it still has the typical "young man who will protect the world" vibe. I understand that Samurai 8 is a shounen manga and surely it will have a number of shounen cliche. But right now, I find that this story lacks interesting secrets or unique twists to really hook my curiosity.

    So for now, you can ignore this series for a while since you will not miss anything significant anything time soon.

    Basically give it a try when there's like 30-50 chapters and maybe some character development, but don't expect much?

    Yeah I'm afraid so. Let's just say that we should keep our expectation low.

    I don't think that's hard. Most people could smear literal shit on paper and it would still have superior quality.

    some people do say quality has increased over time and i have not read it so i would not comment

    but considering volumes of his previous manga sold 600-700k in first week while this one not being able to cross 10k must be some real shit considering a bandwagon of fans from previous series
    or are fans still mad and boruto has been salt on their wound

    Read the post backwards as it being worse than bort. Lol. At least Bort still has Naruto attached to it. That's the major difference.
