The 50th Issue of Weekly Shonen Jump (WSJ) Magazine has revealed today that Masashi Kishimoto, creator of Naruto manga, will appear at this year’s Jump Festa 2017. The event will be held from December 17-18 at Makuhari Messe, Tokyo, Japan. Kishimoto will appear at the Naruto x Boruto stage which will be held on December 17 between 15:10~15:40 Japan time. Beside Kishimoto, the voice actor Junko Takeuchi (Naruto), Yuko Sanpei (Boruto), Kokoro Kikuchi (Sarada) and Ryuichi Kijima (Mitsuki) will also be at the stage with him. We expect there to be some huge announcements. Fingers crossed!!
We’re not sure if Ukyo Kodachi and Mikie Ikemoto, writer & illustrator of Boruto: Naruto Next Generation, will make an appearance at the event. But since WSJ hasn’t announced them yet, we doubt they’ll do so.
