WARNING: NARUTO GAIDEN MANGA SPOILERS AHEAD
A new arc begins in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations in this month of August 2017. It cover the contents of Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring. We’ll also finally see the final chapter 700 of Naruto animated!
For those that are unfamiliar with the 2015 manga, it’s a story of Sarada, along with Chocho, leaving the village in search of Sasuke and takes place before the events of Boruto: Naruto the Movie. The Naruto Gaiden manga was a total of 10 chapters long. It’s unclear how many episodes it will take to cover those 10 chapters, but based on the episode titles and summaries, it seems like by the end of August, we’ll cover 7 of the 10 chapters along with Naruto chapter 700. By September 6 with episode 23, we’d venture to guess it will be another two chapters for nine of the ten chapters from the Naruto Gaiden manga covered. Of course that’s just our prediction here on Saiyan Island based on the episode titles and summaries, we’ll have to watch Boruto: Naruto Next Generations to find out how it all unfolds in the anime! Take a look at the August 2017 schedule below!
