Fans of the manga series "Naruto" are left brokenhearted as their favorite anime now comes to an end after 15 years of airing. However, Viz Media has something to cheer them up as it announced the coming of "Boruto: Naruto Next Generation" for the American viewers.
Viz Media bought the rights to air "Boruto: Naruto Next Generation" in partnership with Hulu. In fact, the manga series will be simulcast at the same time it will air in Japan on April 5.
"We are very excited to announce the acquisition of 'Boruto: Naruto Next Generations,'" VIZ Media's Senior Manager of Animation Marketing Charlene Ingram said. She, too, explained that they perfectly know that the manga series' fans will be surely waiting for the show's upcoming new episodes, according to Comicbook.
"The stage is set for intense adventures featuring a fresh cast of ninjas from the Hidden Leaf Village!" Ingram added. "Boruto: Naruto Next Generation" will be featuring the story of Naruto's son, Boruto, and his friends. Here, fans will be following their training to become the great ninjas of the Hidden Leaf village.
Naruto, too, will be seen in "Boruto: Naruto Next Generation" but unlike in "Naruto," he won't be playing a big role, Polygon reported. In the manga series official synopsis, it has been said that the town of Konoha is now enjoying the peaceful era after being changed and modernized.
"Boruto: Naruto Next Generation" now has high constructions, larger television monitors and streets with mobile cars. With the modernization, the way of living in the era has evidently changed. Moreover, aside from Hulu, the manga series can be also streamed on Viz Media's website and Crunchyroll.
Hulu will have the access to "Boruto: Naruto Next Generation" on its premiere date. Crunchyroll also announced its coming on its network, but it is not yet revealed when it will start its screening. However, it did confirm that it will be seen in the spring.
