IT DOESN’T END HERE NARUTO FANS!
The continuation of the Naruto story has arrived in the form of a new anime series! It is set to release after Naruto: Shippudden ends during the final days of this month after a 10+ year run (*silently sobs*). Yet, the creators of Naruto refuse to let the story end there. It has been confirmed that a spin-off series will be released called, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. If the name wasn’t a dead give away within itself, yes, Boruto is Naruto’s son.
According to an interview with Animedia, Noriyuki Abe, the director of the upcoming Boruto anime, reveals that “the tale begins a little before the events of the movie,” Noriyuki Abe is referring to the Boruto movie that was released back in 2015. He also adds, “the movie occurs when Boruto, Sarada and Mitsuki are in a three-man cell and undertaking the Chuunin Exams, but the TV series will begin from when they enroll into the Academy. After graduating and forming their three-man cell, gaining experience and challenging the Chuunin Exams is the approximate timeline.”
Welp, there you have it. Naruto lives on! Sort of, in a sense I guess (*sobs harder*). Boruto: Naruto Next Generations premieres April 5th!
