If there is a manga that is and remains very popular in France, it is Naruto. The community around the work of Masashi Kishimoto is passionate and caring, and does not hesitate to redouble their efforts to put honor on their manga favorite. Once again with this trailer And this fan-film insane, they proved what they were capable of.
Naruto : the most beautiful fan film to date
We must not forget that Naruto is a work published in 1999, date of the appearance of the first volume and the first plates in the Weekly Shonen Jump from the editor Shueisha. Divided into two chapters (Naruto and now Boruto), it is one of the best-selling manga in the world with 250 million copies published, but it is also one of the best-selling comics of all formats in the world, before Tintin and behind Lucky Luke, ranking 7th in the world. Such a success necessarily creates a lot of enthusiasm and devotion among some fans, who do not hesitate to express their love through different projects.
And among them, we were able to discover throughout 2021 and at the start of 2022 a trailer made by Youtube channel Cryptic, specializing in realistic fan-made trailers. The chain currently counts more than 37 million views. The video is a trailer ofa fan-film around naruto shippuden. We see most of the main antagonists of the manga in moving and terribly realistic sequences, in particular thanks to with special effects that render rather well. Thus, the trailer invites us to see the Susano de Sasuke and Madara, an Itachi assassin from son clan but also a fight sequence of Shikamaru and Asuma against the filthy Hidan, as well as Obito and of course Naruto. This (too) short video of barely a minute will have nothing to envy to the best cinematics of the PlayStation 5.
Not their first time
The team behind the Cryptic chain is not at its first attempt, sinceshe regularly makes trailers based on other very big licenses like Pokémon, One Piece, Attack on Titan or even season 2 of Squid Game, which should arrive soon on our screens. But it is not the Cryptic channel that is alone behind this project. The latter only reused the images ofanother team of “professional amateurs” in the presence of the YouTube channel RE: ANIME that some know well. Indeed, she is already at worka huge 55-minute medium-length film divided into five chapters in the universe of Naruto. These tell the story arc based on the relationship between Shikamaru and his mentor Asuma, in their last fight against Hidan, real monster of the criminal and terrorist association Akatsuki, whose images can be seen in the trailer of Cryptic.
Because it’s mostly the RE:ANIME channel which did most of the work here. This channel offers many fan-film and AMV shorts on many manga. There are also quick videos like some iconic Saitama fights in One Punch Man, Where some cult manga passages like Hunter X Hunter, Demon Slayer, Jujutsu Kaisen or My Hero Academia. By the way, know that they currently have a petition in progress to propose to the film studio Lionsgate an official movie pitch based on the manga Naruto. A petition that has already reached almost 15,000 signatures on Change.org. Even if it seems difficult to us to see how this could be organized for simple questions of copyright, we can still salute their impressive work, which the Cryptic trailer was able to put a little more forward on the Internet.
