I had a bit of trouble with this Ask, not just because of Naruto’s presence (I’ll get into why he’s there in a bit), but also because I’ve had some recent troubles that have soured my opinion on Luffy. I had a lot of emotional difficulty getting through this, but I’d already settled on the idea and wanted to get it out.
So I knew the visual I wanted for this one almost immediately. Goku and Luffy double teaming a boy from some other series was obvious, and Naruto seemed fitting. On top of my continuing effort to ease my way back into being able to draw characters from his series comfortably, I think he’s appropriate in a sort of Jump Force reunion sort of way. Hopefully fans of these series (or even one or two of these series) will enjoy seeing these three main characters paired up like this. The difficult part was figuring out what I’d have them say, since there’s not much to talk about here…. hence them basically saying nothing. Oops.
