'Naruto' News: Upcoming Anime Spin-Off Reveals New Story Details
A new phase of Naruto will be introduced to fans in just a few months. The popular shonen series has been watched for more than a decade, but people still aren't tired of Masashi Kishimoto's ninja-filled franchise.
In 2017, the creator plans to say goodbye to the anime's long-running Naruto Shippuden show. However, the series will not mark an end for the Uzumaki clan. So, the franchise will continue on in April when a Naruto spin-off will hit televisions. And, now, fans have gotten their first taste of what the sequel will be about.
According to the latest issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump (article about Boruto), the Next Generations was printed. That way fans find out that the spin-off anime would begin with an original story. However, the direction of the series might change greatly after its initial arc is complete.
There is a canon-compliant Boruto manga in an issue that has Kishimoto's approval and fans can look forward to its stories being adapted in the future. However, it seems that the Boruto anime will make its mark with an entirely new story, at least for now.
As for the relationship between Boruto and Naruto, it's direct with a few complex knots tying it up along the way. Boruto is the eldest child of Hinata Hyuuga and Naruto Uzumaki. He has become pretty popular in Japan.
The character was introduced at the end of Kishimoto's Naruto manga, and he recently received his own tie-in film alongside his father. Also, Boruto is making his debut in games like Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, but his popularity will certainly rise once TV Tokyo unveils Boruto's spin-off anime.
First, fans find out about the new anime last December during Jump Festa in Japan when Kishimoto confirmed his work on the show and told fans that he plans to make it much better than Naruto. He also confirmed that he has been working on a live-action Naruto adaptation with Lionsgate.
