I completely agree with you on this front.

I had a friend post that "My Hero Academia saved anime". Unfortunately this means that I'm reading it with extremely high expectations.

Don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying MHA, but it is extremely reminiscent to the beginning of Naruto for me. Back when it was a bit more grounded and not just giant energy blasts.


Yeah, the early episodes of Naruto is similar to how MHA is now with a little more depth. Living alone as a child, no parents but with great support, and diligent work ethic. Naruto created a world on its own.


I think because of it's depth, I relate with Naruto alot more and they have so much material to go nuts with the line. Dare I say, more so than DBZ.

I feel like the creator of MHA doesn't really know where he wants to go with his story and I remember reading somewhere that he prefers to show the experience of being a teenager more than the hero side.

Yes! I think about their lack of love for Naruto from time to time and the only thing I can think of it that maybe the hype for it has died down? Of course this is a personal opinion, because I haven't even watched it after Shippuden ended, but it would be awesome if the entire Akatsuki line were to be produced and their hologram could be exclusives or chases!

Sadly I think the craze has sort of died down after the entire manga and anime ended. I know I don't get excited the way I used to on a weekly basis for Boruto.

Even though there is super hype around MHA and Dragonball Z this is only the second wave of MHA and Naruto has 2 waves that have been dropped as well. Dragonball Z is in a class of classic anime all by itself that is separate from Naruto. It is like the backbone of anime for those who grew up watching only a select few that were actually decent on Toonami or Cartoon Network at Midnight in the 90's.

I think you just need to play the patience card on this one. Bleach was a good Anime and it only has 2 characters and is finally getting another 2 after waiting 2 years for a new release.

I am excited that they are doing Full Metal Alchemists.

I don't think this line will die and I think a Rock Lee and Might Guy would be an awesome 2 pack to come out together.

I would also like to see more villains as well. Madara, Itachi, Sasori, Hidan, Pain

Just picked up a Naruto Dorbz chase today but still agreed it amazes me that there’s such a lack of Naruto pops.

True, I feel that with anime Funko tend to go slow and really take the time to make it. I'm also excited for FMA just give me the brothers and I'm all set lol.

I agree there should definitely be additional Naruto Pops but, just like everyone else has mentioned, when it comes to anime, Funko is going after the latest cash cow. I’m pretty there will be an additional wave for Naruto but more for nostalgia.

There was definitely potential for the additional characters to become Pops.

Now only time will tell.

I am so excited for the FMA line. I have asked and requested Funko to make this Anime for at least 2 years. I am just glad to see that it is happening.

There's no way they can make his Giant Snake Bankai the chase, its simply too big. If anything his Chase would be a slightly extended sword or the gear he wears while in Bankai.

It's very obvious that Naruto is loved in this community. I was watching the Funko Twitter live and I along with several other people were asking when they will release more Naruto pops. I know they can't really say anything about it anyways but I'm sure they saw everyone asking. Same with the Twitter Q/A.

It will eventually come but I think Boruto needs to blow up to push Funko to move quicker.

They had no DB stuff for a while until the new season of DBS and now it's coming at us non-stop.

I don't know how well the initial line of Naruto sold though - that may be a contributing factor.

I guess I was partially correct, the common is his normal sword and the Gamestop exclusive is the Bankai Sword Snake which by the way is amazeballs!

I agree. Funko finally realizes that BD sells and they keep releasing new pops. It's really getting saturated. I appreciate the pops as it's my main line but hope they spread it out a bit in the future.

I'm sorry to hear about your issues with Gamestop. I too have had that issue where a pre order I purchased got mailed to my local store and they sold my item to the general public before I was able to come into the store to pick up. I think if this seems to be a common trend with store locations that Gamestop should just make it mandatory that pre orders get mailed to the customers home directly instead of leaving it up to the store employee if they are going to hold my item or if they put it on the shelf for sale to the public.

I did pre order the Renji and I am hoping that I do not have the issue that we have been speaking about. I hope your future dealings with pre orders go better.

Easier to get although I admit I canceled my preorder I am just not a fan of GS right now after the crap they pulled with the HP advent calendar. long story short never called me on my preorder and decided who cares lets sell it to someone else.


I'm sorry to hear about your issues with Gamestop. I too have had that issue where a pre order I purchased got mailed to my local store and they sold my item to the general public before I was able to come into the store to pick up. I think if this seems to be a common trend with store locations that Gamestop should just make it mandatory that pre orders get mailed to the customers home directly instead of leaving it up to the store employee if they are going to hold my item or if they put it on the shelf for sale to the public.

I did pre order the Renji and I am hoping that I do not have the issue that we have been speaking about. I hope your future dealings with pre orders go better.


I just preordered online and was able to get free ship to home so I am good to go.

I didn't pre order the Super Saiyan Gooku 3 and Super Sayian 2 Gohan from Gamestop and I cannot seem to locate them anywhere at local stores. It seems that more these days if you don't pre order a Gamestop exclusive itis almost impossible to find them. The stores used to carry at least 4-10 exclusives at the first release but they do not do this anymore which I find weird.

Does anyone notice or have this issue with Gamestop and their Exclusives ?

Technically SS3 Goku and SS2 Gohan don't release until the 5th. The only recent DB pop Gamestop has released was young Goku. The only people I know with SS3 Goku already ordered him with young Goku and I guess got both when they picked up young Goku?
