    Default Naruto Pilot: Hints and Predictions

    I was recently browsing onemanga's directories when I noticed the Naruto pilot and decided to read it:http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/0/.

    When I read it, I noticed that there were a lot of curious features about some of the more interesting/mysterious parts of the published Naruto plot (like the stuff on the Kyuubi, Akatsuki, and Konoha as a village). I'm just wondering about your interpretations on these themes presented in the pilot and whether it sheds any light on the nature of those mysteries (Kyuubi, Akatsuki, Konoha) in the published work.

    I'll post some of my own observations once the discussion starts up a bit.

    other then the name and some obviously changed basics from the first chapter i don't really see any similarities.

    *maybe* the 9 ninja being the 9 akatsuki but there so different in these separate stages that I can't see them leading into each other.

    In its own right the manga wasn't bad though. The art was pretty bad I mean, but the story line wasn't to horrible.

    and it benefits from no sasuke^^

    There were 10 Akatsuki members at one point in the storyline.

    ^Thanks Yoko^
    I thoroughly believe that most mods in this site suck.

    It wasn't. The first chapter wasn't the pilot. He used the pilot to sell the series to shonen jump.

    ^ You should read the bleach pilot.

    The only good thing that can be said about that was that Rukia (literally) had a smaller role.

    Manny connections I would say. Now we know why did he use "datebayo" all the time.
    But still pilot compared to 1st chapter is utter shit. Naruto persona is completly diferent ... and story background sucks. I wont say anything about stickers which he used before using jutsu because it was "wtf all the way".

    Actually, the artist had a very similar history to Sasuke, being betrayed by his best friend (for Sasuke his bro) and both were disillusioned by their experiences with that person (artist's best friend and Itachi).

    One thing I thought was interesting was the Kyuubi's shape in the pilot. It looked like some hybrid of a bird/pheonix and something else with 9 tails.

    Also, Konoha is located in a crater in the pilot. And the tie between the bird and Konoha is tied better by the painting, which shows the birds nesting in a supportive forest. I though that explained and suggested for a bird/Uchiha link with Naruto/kyuubi because both creatures are residents of the forest, but thats probably reading too much into it.

    The tree interpretation by the artist's assistant also followed with the series' theme of teamwork. His friendship with Naruto also ties in with the 3-man-group sort of teams within the ninja world in Naruto and his subsequent death before Naruto and the artist's resolution of their friendship hints at the published manga.

    On the Akatsuki-ish 9 men referred in the beginning, they said that the men were "assembled" to defeat the kyuubi and that the one survivor was the village leader (sandaime lookalike).
