With hit anime "Naruto Shippuden" coming to an impending finale by the end of the month, fans need not fret as a spin-off sequel will keep things rolling.
The upcoming series titled "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" will hit the TV screens beginning April 5, with the story revolving around Boruto, Naruto's son. Worldwide manga portal the Weekly Shonen Jump recently came out with the synopsis of the first episode of the upcoming series, according to a report from Comicbook.com.
The synopsis read: "The son of Uzumaki Naruto the 7th Hokage, Uzumaki Boruto! While he was on his way to the Ninja Academy, he finds Kaminarimon Denki who got himself involved with a few delinquents. After which he noticed that Denki's chakra has become warped, and he is acting strangely."
Furthermore, a full synopsis of the series was also released, mentioning that the village of Konoha had adapted to the modern, changing times during the era of peace, with different kinds of constructions built left and right. Moreover, technology had also taken over, with innovations like electric cars and large computer monitors that transmit images, among others. These, in turn, have changed that way people lived, particularly that of ninjas.
At the Ninja Academy, Boruto will get to meet new friends and a mysterious incident that he will have to face. In addition, an article from The Christian Post also mentioned that he will cross paths with the children of other characters from "Naruto Shippuden," as well as a few of his father's friends.
Series creator Masashi Kishimoto shared late last year that the upcoming anime will have a much lighter and happier tone and storyline compared to its predecessor. He also added that the personalities of Naruto and his son are quite different, with Naruto being the more serious and straightforward one, as shared by AnimeBlog.
