Going by Hachi getting a completely new body in ch1, I'll guess Nanashi will get whatever body he or she desires during the transformation into a Samurai as well. I'm curious whether the chosen form can still reconfigured after that and whether Kishimoto plans to make this an ongoing topic with Nanashi, or whether he'll simply have Nanashi turn up as a girl next time we see her and that's the last we hear about the issue.>>188597807
Yeah, he hasn't really crossed me as remarkable, as far as his personality is concerned. To draw a comparison to Kishi's previous work, it was a lot easier to get behind Naruto in the beginning, both with his ostracization by the village and his status as a fuckup and both his resulting mischievous and approval-craving streaks. I sense no really long-lasting character issues with Hachi. He was restricted to his home, but now he got over it. Problem apparently solved. I haven't yet sensed whether this somehow formed him as a character, beyond what you'd expect out of a general good-natured mc.
