Naruto was a young shinobi with an incorrigible knack for mischief. He achieved his dream to become the greatest ninja in the village and his face sits atop the Hokage Monument. But this is not his story. A new generation of ninja are ready to take the stage, led by Naruto’s own son, Boruto.
Following the successful end of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Konohagakure has been enjoying a period of peace, prosperity, and extraordinary technological advancement. This is all due to the efforts of the Allied Shinobi Forces and the village’s Seventh Hokage, Naruto Uzumaki.
Now resembling a modern metropolis, Konohagakure has changed, particularly the life of a shinobi. Under the watchful eye of Naruto and his old comrades, a new generation of shinobi has stepped up to learn the ways of the ninja.
Boruto Uzumaki is often the center of attention as the son of the Seventh Hokage. Despite having inherited Naruto’s boisterous and stubborn demeanor. Boruto is considered a prodigy and is able to unleash his potential with the help of supportive friends and family. Unfortunately, this has only worsened his arrogance and his desire to surpass Naruto. Which, along with his father’s busy lifestyle, has strained their relationship.
However, a sinister force brewing within the village may threaten Boruto’s carefree life. New friends and familiar faces join Boruto as a new story begins in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
People have mixed opinion over this TV series, and I have understood some of the reasons after watching around 150 episodes into the series.
Despite the negative viewpoints from viewers, including ardent Naruto/Naruto Shippuden patrons, I’d say the series ‘Boruto’ is based on a different foundation that differs from its predecessors.
