Manga enthusiasts and loyal “Naruto” fans continue to support the Japanese comics and TV series up until the second generation of ninjas. Today, his offspring, Boruto, carries his father’s legacy through a spinoff which will be out on May 9.
The “Naruto” franchise’s official website, called “Next Generation,” revealed the exciting news. According to the Japanese online news, Mikie Ikemoto’s “Boruto” stand alone manga will be published in Shueshia’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on the said date as their 23rd issue kicks off.
The new manga series focuses solely on Boruto, along with his friends, just like his parents Naruto and Hinata Uzumaki. The creative team behind the much-awaited spinoff is composed of Ukyo Kodachi, who is in charge of the script.
Meanwhile, Masashi Kishimoto will be supervising the manga and will publish a “one-shot” episode of the original “Naruto” on the same issue as well. Meanwhile, Ikemoto will be assisting him by drawing the whole new manga spinoff.
In other details, the magazine has already provided some hints in the past by teasing the audience of the characters’ silhouette figures. They also dropped the logo in the same form.
Specifically, the characters who were vaguely shown are the children of the original “Naruto” series who were featured in “Boruto- Naruto The Movie” and “Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and The Scarlet Spring” manga sequel.
In other news, Part 2 of the “Boruto- Naruto The Movie” is rumored to be cancelled, notes Crossmap. The reason cited is because of “Naruto Shippuden: The True Legend Of Itachi,” which has been announced in December last year.
According to the website, there will be two parts of the series entitled “Naruto Shippuden: The True Legend of Itachi: Glory” and “Naruto Shippuden: The True Legend of Itachi: Dark Knight.” The aforementioned was released a month ago with 9 episodes. The latter will kick off soon.
However, the cancellation of “Boruto- Naruto The Movie” is still unconfirmed.
