I am become death, Destroyer of worlds
Ever since Part 1 of Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto has wanted to a manga about the Italian Mafia in New York.

The side story chapter for the one shot that will be in Jump SQ in June has been released in this weeks jump, though scanlations haven't gotten it out yet.

Here's the Main man of the series himself, Mario.

Discuss.

He's really naming his next series Mario!?

Considering Mario is a common italian name, yes.

Darn, I thought this was an adaptation of the videogame.
Sam just... punched his own face and died in a marsh. And Pippin got lost, and Frodo was dead.
I'm not sure I want Kishi going anywhere near Mario.

żViteh?
Naruto's days are truly counted now, I see.

Well, now Kishi has a really good excuse to leave the women in the kitchen, I suppose.

THIS IS JUST GOING TO BE NARUTO MEETS THE GODFATHER!!

...Just kidding. Will it start immediately after Naruto, or a few months after?
If you wanna PM me, send it to my mrsunshinesprinkles account; this one is blorked.
[up]If Bakuman。 thought me anything, it depends whether or not this one shot have a good reception in the questionnaires. Though it probably will, being Kishimoto and all.

But, anyway, it also depends if the author and the editors even want this to become a series. I believe most author release multiple one-shots that never become series, even after becoming famous.

Word is that the one-shot was made before Naruto even started running, but the editors stopped it from being shown because it simply sucked.

So I hope he's improved it by leaps and bounds if he wants to serialize it next.

It will also be Monthly, if Being in Jump SQ is any indication.

He's had this idea in his head since the early days of Naruto.

I would love for this thing to be trolling all the readers until Mario goes to meet his boss, who instead of being a "don" has the title of "Hokage, " and is the spitting image of Itachi Uchiha, and then it turns out the whole thing is just Naruto 100 years in the future or Mario is really just Obito or someone put into a genjutsu and forced to believe he was a mafia enforcer as punishment for being a whiny prick and starting a world war.

Kishi'd be all "lol, Naruto-rolled!" and everyone would be so pissed. It would be glorious.
The very best, like no one ever was.

[up][up][up]Well, Kishimoto probably learned a lot from all these years working on Naruto. Not to mention this was years ago. The current work is probably fairly different from the original.

[up][up]Bakuman。 also thought me that the magazine in which the one-shot was originally published doesn't mean all that much.

[up]No, it wouldn't. It would be just stupid.

[up] What he said

The special chapter in Weekly Shonen Jump is four pages, set mostly in a trashy apartment in New York's Little Japan, with the protagonist (who actually may not be named Mario) and a recently immigrated yakuza drinking beer on the couch while Naruto is airing on the TV, complete with an obnoxious "believe it!"

The protag explains that he's half-Japanese (and presumably half-Italian American) but was born and raised in the US. He takes his gun out and puts it on the table, prompting the yakuza to ask why everyone in this country seems to own a gun. Our hero starts talking about how American kids aren't raised the same as Japanese ones, "Here, little kids who get bullied don't off themselves — they bring a gun to school and dispense some justice."

He then starts talking about how there's this billboard in Rockefeller Center ("Y'know, where they sing Christmas Carols and do the big Countdown Party...") that keeps a running tally of all the gun-related deaths in the country, which averages out to about "a hundred bodies" every day. He then puts his gun to the yakuza's temple, "...and this Glock is responsible for a few of 'em."

At this point he starts extorting money from the punk by talking about his hair trigger, making a threat/joke about the difference between Japanese firecrackers (he lights some with his cigarette as a mock execution) and Italian firecrackers (the "real deal"), and telling the guy that he doesn't have to become a number on that scoreboard.

It then cuts to him and another guy with black hair and shades (who the protag calls "Ken" and a woman on the phone seemingly calls "Mario") heading to Times Square with a briefcase full of stolen money. When (Ken/Mario?) asks if he needs help carrying it, the protag replies, "Nah, money's the one kind of weight I never get tired of lifting. Let's get to the Square already." Jump SQ (Square), get it?

A couple sample pages from the one-shot there.

Oh, and it was never rejected by editors, as far as I know. It's the series he was working on before he tried getting serialized in Jump, or at least before working on Naruto. It dates back to when he was experimenting with seinen stuff and his art was heavily influenced by Katsuhiro Otomo's, before he started to developed his own trademark art style with Karakuri and Naruto. He's always intended to write it, and apparantly considers it the best manga he's ever done. He'd already completed a 160-page rough manuscript by Naruto Vol. 11, so it seems likely that he wants to do more than just a 50-page one-shot.

From that description, all I have to say is Anvilicious.

So Manga panda translated the one shot, but I will wait for another translator to see the difference.

If Eichiro Oda had the good sense to rename Sanji from Naruto, Kishi himself should have the good sense to rename Mario to... fricking anything.

....Not reallly. Mario is a common italian name, it's not trademarked.

That ending was rather sad, too. sad

I'm sure that If the oneshot is successful enough, he'll have turn into a montly series at some point.

Yeah, unfair to everyone named Mario to be not allowed to be named Mario tongue
Time to change the style, for now

True, but many names are such that they are both common and have also "been done." Such that it would be okay for a random person to have that name, but not for something that could potentially be a series.

Yeah, I have a feeling they're gonna chance the name if it goes any further, so as to not completely shoot any chance of licensed games in the foot. "Mario" is so engraved in gaming to refer to that Mario that it would be impossible to defend against the instant lawsuit.

I'd like to see Suda 51 make a game for this, since he loves assassins as a whole.
