The combined 37-38th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday the character designs for Sakura Haruno, Shikamaru Nara, and Sai for the upcoming The Last -Naruto the Movie- film.

The descriptions for Sakura read, "Sakura, who has grown up to have a mature expression! ...Sakura's gently smiling expression makes quite the impression. Her body's form is also somewhat feminine."

The notes on Shikamaru's designs read, "Shikamaru with a tranquil face!... Shikamaru does not appear to have much change to him, but the look on his face looks quite manly!?"

Sai's designs read, ""Sai has changes to his clothes, too!? ...Sai's bangs have gotten a bit longer, and his face has a cooler expression. The sleeves on his shirt have gotten a bit longer."

The designs also confirm that original creator Masashi Kishimoto will also provide the original character designs for Sakura, Shikamaru, and Sai

The film is also part of the larger “Naruto Shin Jidai Kaimaku Project” (Naruto’s New Era Opening Project) marking the 15th anniversary of the original manga.
