From Chainsaw Man to Naruto; an incredible moment of animation unites both franchises

What I’m talking about? well to start I leave you with the clip of the hand of ShonenLeaks which makes the reference in question:

But what exactly does this 4-second short of “Chainsaw Man” refer to? next moment of “Naruto Shippuden”:

In case anyone has also seen it commented on RRSS, the truth is that the scene in question from “Naruto” is, in turn, a reference to another scene from the “Evangelion” anime. I think the best thing about this chain of references is that, at the same time, it’s kind of like ‘pass the torch to the next generation‘ Considering how special the ‘Evangelion’ and ‘Naruto Shippuden’ anime were at their respective times, and that obviously ‘Chainsaw Man’ has the potential for that as well.

Also, it is important to note that there is the same person (except for the “Evangelion” scene) behind these scenes, and that is neither more nor less than Shingo Yamashita. Who already had a crucial role in the “Naruto Shippuden” anime is also part of “Chainsaw Man”, and it seems that he wants this kind of representation to become part of his personal brand. In any case, the truth is that the end result is absolutely amazing.
