Naruto Shippuden ended its 10 year run in Japan on March 23 of this year and with that end comes a new beginning. That new beginning is in the form of Naruto’s son Boruto Uzumaki and the new anime series Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
As an introduction episode it does a really good job at introducing some of the kids from the Konoha 11. You can tell that Masashi Kishimoto is trying his hardest to make Boruto his own person and not a clone of his father.
The character Denki seems interesting as well as he will be attending the ninja academy not to be a ninja, but to study ninjutsu.
I would say that the first season or so will probably focus on their time in the academy as well as Boruto’s strained relationship with Naruto since he can’t be around as he’s now Hokage.
It’ll be interesting to see how their time in the academy will unfold even though we can take a guess on what the results will be as far as them become ninja.
I think this series is worth giving a chance and I’m looks forward to seeing the second episode. For those who want to check out the episode check it out on Crunchyroll.com or Viz.com which will start premiering episodes April 12th.
