After 10 years, “Naruto Shippūden” officially ended on March 23. Although a lot are left brokenhearted, fans still have the reason to celebrate as the tale of Hidden Leaf Village will continue with the sequel spinoff “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.”

The new Japanese manga series will feature the story of the village’s new ninjas after the "Fourth Great Ninja War." Written by Ukyō Kodachi and illustrated by Mikio Ikemoto, it is set to continue the story left by the much-loved seventh Hokage’s son.

The spinoff’s official synopsis

In the new issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, the official synopsis of “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” has been revealed. The animated series will be led by Uzumaki Boruto, the son of Uzumaki Naruto.


Boruto will meet Kaminarimon Denki on his way to the Ninja Academy. It has been known that Denki is involved with a few criminals, but he will notice that his chakra is somehow deformed that might be the reason why he is acting strangely.

The town of Konoha has now changed and modernized “next to an era of peace.” It now has high constructions, large television monitors, and broader streets that have electric cars running on it. Hence, the ninja’s way of living has evidently changed.
