Naruto Shippuden?s end is fast approaching. Before we get our hearts broken, perhaps it?s just the right time to shift focus on the next generations. It must be about time that a new breed of ninjas in the Naruto universe takes the spotlight. The upcoming series is titled Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Anime.
The Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime trailer is here. We have seen it ourselves via a website that TV Tokyo opened on Saturday. The promotional video revealed key visuals for the new Boruto anime series.
The next generations cast of characters consists of Konoha’s latest troika Boruto, Sarada and Mitsuki. It was previously announced during the Shonen Fiesta that a new adaptation is surely happening.
The Boruto anime series is expected to bring back youthful exuberance. The setting is several years after the Fourth Great Ninja War. The story also takes place after Naruto’s one-on-one showdown with Sasuke. See trailer here.
Boruto Anime Series
The plot of the Boruto anime series is suggested to center on Naruto and Hinata?s son as he deals with strong villains. The defeat of Kaguya Otsutsuki and Toneri Otsutsuki does not necessarily mean that peace has arrived in the world of ninjas.
The new story is expected to have plenty of new villains as well. That sounds really interesting. It clearly looks like Boruto is up for a challenge.
This sparked speculations that Momoshiki and Kinshiki will be the major villains in the upcoming anime series. Shin Uchiha will also be one of the villains.
There were also talks over the past months that the upcoming Boruto series will feature an expanded version of the Chunin exam. So far, we have seen tournament matches featuring Sarada, Mitsuki, Metal Lee and other young genins. However, the story was not much elaborated because the screen time was limited.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generation anime will air early April. Catch it every Thursday on Tokyo TV and Crunchy Roll.
