New Naruto Anime Special – The Day Naruto Became Hokage

Posted on April 30, 2016

His dream was to be Hokage, the top ninja in the Hidden Leaf Ninja. Through many trials and tribulations, our hero achieved his dream and became the Seventh Hokage! We’ve seen a bit of his life after becoming Hokage through the Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring manga and Boruto: Naruto the Movie. What about the day he became Hokage? We’ve seen that too through The Day Naruto Became Hokage one-shot manga chapter by Naruto creator, Masashi Kishimoto.

Aniplex, the anime production company behind the Naruto movies, has listed Boruto: Naruto the Movie will be making its way to Blu-Ray and DVD in Japan on July 6, 2016. It will be available for Blu-ray and DVD. There will be a regular edition that includes just Boruto: Naruto the Movie, but there will also be a Limited Edition which includes the movie itself, a soundtrack CD, digipak illustrated by Boruto: Naruto the Movie character designer Tetsuya Nishio, a special booklet, and new anime special!

That new anime special is based on The Day Naruto Became Hokage manga and will show Naruto’s Hokage inauguration and the events that lead up to it. It’s unclear how long the anime special will be, the manga was just 17 pages. We predict it will probably be 10 minutes long, but of course the length is just our guess. An official English dub or sub has not yet been announced for Boruto: Naruto the Movie or The Day Naruto Became Hokage anime special. As we learn more, we hope to let you know right here on Anime Games Online!
