Boruto: Naruto Next Generations (Japanese: BORUTO-ボルト- NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS), also known as Boruto, is a Japanese manga series written by Ukyō Kodachi and illustrated by Mikio Ikemoto. Serialised in Shueisha's shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump, Boruto is a spin-off and a sequel to Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto, which follows the exploits of Naruto Uzumaki's son, Boruto Uzumaki, and his ninja team. An anime television series adaptation directed by Noriyuki Abe started airing on TV Tokyo on 5 April 2017. Unlike the manga, which began as a retelling of the film Boruto: Naruto the Movie (2015), the Boruto anime acts like a prequel set before Boruto and his friends become ninjas in a later arc. A series of light novels have also been written. Boruto originated from Shueisha's proposal to Kishimoto on making a sequel to Naruto. However, Kishimoto rejected this offer and proposed his former assistant Mikio Ikemoto to draw it; the writer of the Boruto film, Ukyō Kodachi, created the plot. While both Kodachi and Ikemoto are in charge of the manga, Kodachi also oversees the anime's adaptation alongside Kishimoto. Critical reception to the series has been largely positive; most critics liked the traits of the main characters, most notably Boruto, who resembles his father, Naruto, but is spoiled and pampered and therefore faces different problems than Naruto did during childhood as a social pariah and an orphan. The story was also applauded for building up the original Naruto scenario by showing the new generation of ninjas and their relationships with their parents and mentors. Pierrot's anime prequel also earned praise for its use of both new and returning characters. Shueisha has shipped a million copies of the manga series as of January 2017.
Generations - Plot - Netflix
The series begins with young ninja Boruto Uzumaki facing a foe named Kawaki during the destruction of his village, Konohagakure. Boruto remembers how his father, Naruto Uzumaki, became his village's Seventh Hokage and oversaw a new generation in the Ninja World following his marriage to Hinata Hyuga. Boruto, who felt angry because his father placed the welfare of the village before that of his family, became a part of a ninja team led by Naruto's protégé Konohamaru Sarutobi, along with Sarada Uchiha, the daughter of Sasuke and Sakura Uchiha, and Mitsuki, Orochimaru's artificial son. When Sasuke returns to the village to warn Naruto of an impending threat, Boruto persuades Sasuke to train him for the upcoming Chunin exam to impress his father. During the exam, Momoshiki Otsutsuki and Kinshiki Otsutsuki — the threat of whom Sasuke spoke — appear and abduct Naruto so they can use Kurama, a tailed beast sealed inside his body, to revitalise the dying Shinju from the dimension they came from. Boruto joins Sasuke and the four Kages — the leaders of other ninja villages — to rescue Naruto. Momoshiki turns Kinshiki into a chakra fruit and ingests it to become stronger. Aided by Naruto and Sasuke, Boruto defeats Momoshiki, who lives long enough to warn Boruto he will face much tribulation later on in his life. After recovering from his fight, Boruto decides to become a vigilante like Sasuke in the future while entrusting Sarada to follow her dream of becoming the Hokage. As Sasuke interrogates a criminal who knows of Boruto's mark that was placed on him by Momoshiki, he tells Naruto and his underlings there is a group called “Kara” (殻, lit. The Husk) searching for people with marks. Boruto's team is assigned to investigate the mysteries behind Kara.
