The long-time running anime series Naruto Shippuden has finally closed its curtains with its final episode airing last night. But, fans have nothing to worry about because the story continues featuring Naruto’s son, Boruto, as the lead character. The new series is titled Boruto: Naruto Next Generations and here are the details you need to know.
Fans can recall that Boruto had his debut in the movie Boruto: Naruto The Movie. Viewers saw him struggling in getting along with his father, Naruto, for he is always busy working as the sixth Hokage of Konoha. At the end of the film, Boruto understood all the hardships Naruto had gone through to reach his current level. It then gives the idea that the new lead character would train harder to surpass his father.
Now, with regards to the plot of the new series, it seems like it would follow the events that took place in the movie. Should that be the case, then fans should expect Boruto and the rest of the next generation ninjas to retake the Chunin exam. Also, the continuation of his training under the supervision of Sasuke Uchiha would definitely be highlighted in the story.
Moreover, after what transpired in the movie, Boruto and Naruto would certainly become closer to each other in the series. The latter might even train his son so Boruto could finally create thousands of shadow clones. If that does not excite you for the upcoming series, we don’t know what will. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations will officially air on April 5.
Naruto Shippuden 500 Review
The final episode of Naruto Shippuden was not as expected by everyone. Creators only allotted few scenes for the main characters of the arc, Naruto and Hinata. Although the episode should have featured the couple and their wedding, it seems like the focus was on Iruka and his relationship with Naruto. That, of course, disappointed every fan especially those who were expecting to see the full wedding ritual and the reception.
Not only that, because the episode did not even present one single scene from the ceremony. It just showed Naruto and Hinata walking out of their room wearing their wedding outfits. One thing, however, that somehow made fans smile was the video compilation of Konohamaru’s interview with all the important characters. But all-in-all, the last episode of the series was good but totally unsatisfying.
