Naruto Uzumaki, is a loud, hyperactive, adolescent ninja who constantly searches for approval and recognition, as well as to become Hokage, who is acknowledged as the leader and strongest of all ninja in the village.
It's been some years since the end of the Shinobi War. Naruto Uzumaki is the 7th Hokage of Konohagakure, in this new era. His son, Boruto Uzumaki, will soon enter the Chûnin exams, alongside Sarada Uchiha and the mysterious Mitsuki.
Ninjas with bloodline limits begin disappearing in all the countries and blame points toward the fire nation. By Tsunade's order, Kakashi is sacrificed to prevent an all out war. Naruto fights through friends and foes to prevent his death.
A mysterious group of ninja called the Sora-nin from the Sky Country makes a surprise attack on Konoha. This is because Konoha nearly destroyed the Sky Country during the last Shinobi World... See full summary »
Naruto, Kakashi, Sakura, and Rock Lee are assigned to protect Michiru, the prince of the Land of the Moon, while he travel the world. The prince purchased a tiger Sham and the whole circus, which became the team's protection.
Naruto was a young shinobi with an incorrigible knack for mischief. He achieved his dream to become the greatest ninja in the village and his face sits atop the Hokage Monument. But this is not his story. A new generation of ninja are ready to take the stage, led by Naruto's own son, Boruto.
Boruto serves as a good continuation to its predecessor, Naruto. It pleases the original fans with a new take on classic characters like Shino, Naruto as a Hokage and his wife Hinata. Meanwhile, it introduces potential newcomers to the basics of the universe like chakra and the multiple jutsus. Considering the fact that the creators of the show have to build a new franchise that already had a movie based on it (with an end of the world-like plot) before it even began, i'm equally worried and intrigued. The low point for me is that all the main characters, which are the children of naruto's friends, are basically copies of their parents and fail to feel fresh (including Boruto). By chance, the arrival of the mysterious Mitsuki adds a little suspense to the show, and the opening scene of the first episode promises some real good action in the future.
For now, the plot of the first arc seems pretty basic and straight forward, but it's perfectly fine considering that every anime that wants to run for a long period of time has to lay down some bases and introduce the new characters before diving into the core content. What makes you come back for the next episode is the immense potential of the show that could mix nostalgia and hot action in the future. With all the colorful characters that were established in the show's ancestor, there is no doubt that the viewers will soon be rewarded with quality television.
