Boruto: Naruto Next Generations (2017– )
User ReviewsReview this title
- No effort has been made to develop characters - Most of the children are a copy/paste version of their parents - Despite a thrilling start in episode one, story development has been both horrible and slow - Boruto's character is completely uninteresting especially that he hates Naruto - automatic loss of respect for Boruto's character - Naruto is not as passionate and emotional as he was in the original series - you would think he'd pass that on to his children - The sequel is less emotional compared to the original series and it doesn't stress the values that the original focused on i.e. love, friendship and sacrifice to protect your beloved. Instead, it reinforces rebellion against parents - The sequel seems to be directed towards young viewers - Boruto is too arrogant and doesn't have a rival - A Jedi warrior is boring if he doesn't fight a Sith lord
In short, the sequel lacks a good story line, depth of character, and the passion of the original NARUTO series
i keep watching it becouse even if naruto it was full of filler in the end the story was good, full of action
but boruto......... im just hating it more and more each episodes my good memory of naruto is vanishing
even the character that i really enjoyed in the naruto "original series" are getting stupid and out of it character example: SASUKE
its almost 2years now and everything CANON in this series its already been watched in the boruto movie "2 years ago" unless u want see how jugo save duck or how gai and kakashi spent their time at the SPA
so yes.. i feel like i wasted my time watching all episodes
Moreover, the animation is just poor and looks very very ugly, almost hard to watch. At this time when we have good animes like Black Clover and Boku No Hero Akademia, I wonder how do the creators of Boruto expect to have any competition when they keep living in the shadow of the success behind Naruto.
I saw this and thought it would be cool to revisit my childhood series. After seeing a few episodes I just felt too old as it's focusing on their academy life. The challenges that the characters face are just trivial AF and doesn't bring any sense of importance.
There is just a lack of a good story arch and development in characters. The characters feels very 2 dimensional(no pun intended) as they are basically copies of their parents and nothing more. There is no seriousness or emotional moments which is what made Naruto work. There is no forest of death where you feel that there is a real sense of danger and that the characters actually can get hurt or killed.
The animation is pretty good tho which is why I give it a 3/10.
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.
What the heck were they thinking when they drew them? Heck!
