With the story entering into a new chapter, fans speculate that the series will offer them the time skip they’ve all been waiting for.
Boruto manga was previously written by Ukyo Kodachi and illustrated by Mikeo Ikemoto, with Masashi Kishimoto serving as an editorial supervisor. Kishimoto later took over the writing duties from Kodachi in November 2020.
The manga began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2016 and was transferred to Shueisha’s monthly magazine, V Jump, in July 2019.
Boruto is a spin-off and a sequel to Kishimoto’s Naruto, which follows the exploits of Naruto Uzumaki’s son, Boruto Uzumaki, and his ninja team.
An anime television series adaptation started airing on TV Tokyo in April 2017. Unlike the manga, which began as a retelling of the Boruto film, the anime begins as a prequel set before Boruto and his friends become ninjas in a later story arc. A series of light novels have also been written.
