Boruto Manga Confirmed for Spring 2016

Posted on December 19, 2015

The world of Naruto has so many stories left to tell and starting in Spring 2016 fans can once again enjoy the world of ninja as Shuiesha’s Weekly Shonen Jump will begin to publish a manga based on the next generation! Boruto Uzumaki, the son of the Seventh Hokage, Naruto Uzumaki, will serve as the lead character in a series called BORUTO!

Naruto series creator Masashi Kishimoto will be back with his talents, but this time as a supervisor, similar to what he did for the Boruto: Naruto the Movie. The manga story/script will be written by Ukyō Kodachi (who did screenplay for Boruto: Naruto the Movie) and drawn by Mikio Ikemoto (who worked as an assistant under Kishimoto-sensei on Naruto).

Even though the manga will run in Weekly Shonen Jump, Boruto will be a manga series published monthly. It’s unclear how many pages each chapter will have, but it does grant Kishimoto-sensei his wish to work on a series with more relaxed deadlines while giving us die-hard fans a continuation to the manga series so much. We at Anime Games Online are very much excited and hope to bring you the latest news for the series as it’s announced!

BORUTO will take place after the events in Boruto: Naruto the Movie. Below is the first promotional image for the series. From the Hidden Leaf Village, it features Sasuke Uchiha, the the Hokage Rock, Shikadai Nara, Inojin Yamanaka, Chocho Akamichi, Metal Lee, Naruto Uzumaki, Boruto Uzumaki, Sarada Uchiha, and Mitsuki. From the Hidden Sand Village,at the bottom left of the image and first seen in Boruto: Naruto the Movie, are Araya (masked person), Shinki (black coat) and Yodo (girl). At the bottom right there is black-blonde-haired mystery character we don’t recognize.
