Boruto Movie to Be Recreated in Boruto Anime, with Urashiki Otsutsuki Character

Posted on December 18, 2017

Boruto, Sarada, Mitsuki and their fellow classmates are now Genin! In 2018, the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime will explore the next chapter of their young ninja lives and take our protagonists to the Chunin Exams! The 2015 film, Boruto: Naruto the Movie, will be recreated in the TV anime series. Due to time constraints of a movie, certain footage was left out from the 2015 film that will be included in the TV anime. This includes the introduction of a new Otsutsuki! Boruto: Naruto the Movie had Momoshiki Otsutsuki and Kinshiki Otsutsuki. The Boruto: Naruto Next Generations TV anime will also have a character named Urashiki Otsutsuki. What his role in the TV anime is unknown, but he wields a powerful weapon that is essentially a whip made of a chakra thread. At the end of the whip is a hook, which we also assume is made of chakra. Like Gaara, Urashiki also has a gourd on his back. However, Urashiki’s gourd is full of chakra.

Urashiki, like Momoshiki and Kinshiki, is designed by Naruto’s original creator, Masashi Kishimoto. Below are his character designs for Urashiki and a promotional image for the Chunin Exams arc in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. A specific date the arc will begin has not yet been announced, but it will air in 2018.

    Awesome.

  • randy191993

    What’s with animes now always spending ressources on showing a already released movie again? Didn’t get that for Dragonball and don’t get that for Boruto

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Wow really!did not see this coming!! Isn’t this they’re 3rd time redesigning this character?

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Yea it’s pretty stupid

  • Navok76

    boruto movie was the best movie from naruto franchise tbh

  • Navok76

    this one will be different

  • Navok76

    Boruto movie >>> Boruto anime

  • Scott Baker✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Boruto manga made the movie villain more awesome instead of a curse seal looking guy

  • Billy Townhouse

    Ok,so this guy is the Ōtsutsuki we never got to see.

  • Breon Reynolds

    It’s to avoid the classic case that naruto itself made oh so famous. Enormous filler arcs. Using the movies and manga specials to give the manga more time to get ahead is a wiser move especially for this franchise than catching up too fast and giving the same problems to this anime that the last one had. That’s also why they told stories before they became genin to make sure even more distance was given from the manga.

  • Navok76

    I don’t read the manga but at least he is better than brats with swords

  • Strider Xanthos

    In hindsight, we never got to see Naruto’s Academy days all that much outside of fillers so the past four arcs of Boruto have been interesting to me so far. It’s not a popular opinion but that’s just me.

  • Ansem_Seeker_Of_Truth

    This arc is coming out in Spring 2018, not January or February.

  • Paul Watson

    Redesigning?

  • Paul Watson

    Dragon Ball Super Had This, For The Battle Of Gods And Ressurection Of Frieza Arcs In The Anime. They Were Changed Slightly But They Still Existed.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Yes they did in the manga&the movie now this 3rd time

  • Paul Watson

    He Wasn’t In The Movie Or Manga Tho.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Well 3rd time redesigning the arc

  • ObilityX

    You have to pay to watch movies legally. The anime normally airs on tv in japan. Also the arc will be more fleshed out because of things left out due to time constraints.

  • Alex

    I don’t know about Dragon Ball, but for Boruto there were things in the movie that the staff wanted to have but ultimately left out because there was a time limit, so for the anime they’re adding those things. For example the 3rd Otsutsuki member that got cut will be added to the anime

  • Alex

    Regardless of the movie being rehashed, I’m looking forward to it. The anime was starting to bore me so this will make it interesting again.

  • AsurasPath22

    This anime is literally leaps and bounds better than DB super.

  • ayami

    im excited for the movie recap. I wonder when they will air it. maybe jan or feb i really dont want some boring fillers after mitsuki episodes. hopefully the episodes wont be boring. i really dont like that panda mission it was kinda lame. rather them skip most of that 1 and do something better xd. ready to see naruto in action again plus boruto being cool with his dad.

  • Hiroshi Matsumoto

    This entire franchise died when Nagato was beaten by a book. Trash will be trash.

  • Hunt Singleton

    I assume this new guy is the mysterious Otsutsuki character shown with Momoshiki and Kinshiki in Shippuden Episode 462…

  • MysteryWarrior

    Exactly wht I was gonna say here. It seems Kishimoto sensei wanted to expand more on the otsutsuki clan in the boruto series rather than the parent series.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    It faded for you. Good residence. Doesn’t need you, anyway. Don’t run your mouth for others.

  • Suzaku

    Yes. Urashiki was originally intended to play a role in the movie, as well as Toneri, but both were cut from the film due to time constraints. The anime adaptation will be reincorporating the scrapped stuff from Kishimoto’s original plans.

  • Alex

    It says it right there, bud. They’re filling in the gaps that were left out. One of my favorite moments in Naruto is the chunin exams because it gives characters an individual way to shine. It pushes them forward and we see more of what they’re capable of. This was literally the ONLY reason I didn’t mind the anime not picking up after the movie. My hope came true.

  • ®CodeBreaker™

    Was looking forward to the rehash of the movie. I knew things would be different and more detailed. Glad it is what I was hoping it to be.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    Not an achievement, but still a good thing to hear. Especially from someone else than myself, so I know there are actually some smart fans out there.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    I dunno if best, but it definitely was better than vast majority of them. I think only DBZ had watchable, AT WORST, films.

  • Silver King

    It’s only an opinion. Geez you sound like you’re offended lol.

  • Silver King

    That’s an opinion and has nothing to do with being smart.

  • Silver King

    How do you know?

  • Paul Watson

    I Doubt They’re Redesigning The Arc, They’ll Probably Adapt The Manga Arc Into The Anime.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    It’s already redesigned it’s a new character in it….

  • Paul Watson

    That Doesn’t Mean The Entire Arc Is Redesigned, Lmao. It Could Play Out The Same Way, Just With A New Character Added.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Ok

  • you’vebeentrolled

    I understand rebooting movies and TV-series is hot right now but this is way too soon

  • you’vebeentrolled

    You didn’t like madara?

  • you’vebeentrolled

    I would rather see the movie from the other characters’ perspective. What happend to Denki? How did Metal react when he failed the chunin Exams? (Y’all forgot that 🙂 and What does kakashi do with his spare time?

  • you’vebeentrolled

    Will he be added to naruto ninja storm 4 or will he be added to Shinobi striker? (Here is the true question!)

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    It actually does, and it’s not an opinion that it isn’t a good Dragon Ball. A smart person should know what DB is about while Super fans kinda don’t get it (and that’s one of the reasons they like it).

  • watchin

    does anyone actually care anymore? I sure as hell don’t

  • watchin

    you mean late

  • Hiroshi Matsumoto

    I did but his death was disappointing ’cause kishi stated many times that he made him too strong, he didn’t know how to deal with him. When an author writes a character that they cannot control then wtf is the point in them even writing?

  • Silver King

    Well if you mean writing wise if it’s “Good” then you’re rite because the writing in this show is pretty bad. But if you meant which one is better/ more enjoyable then that depends on the person and is an opinion.

  • Edward

    Plenty of people care. Just speak for yourself.

  • watchin

    No they don’t. Just speak for yourself

  • Edward

    You can’t speak for everyone you goddamn hypocrite.

  • watchin

    Neither can you, you goddamn hypocrite.

  • Edward

    Except anybody with common sense can gather from the comments and viewership that the show is popular and that people do care. Otherwise why keep up with a show for 40 episodes? You must secretly care if you’re still here trying to prove that you don’t.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    If Boruto is better written and has more Naruto vibes than Super has Dragon Ball’s, it kinda is a fact that Boruto is a more “worthy” continuation.

  • watchin

    Except anybody with common sense can gather from the comments and viewership that the show is not as popular as its predecessor and that people don’t care as much. Otherwise why assume I keep up with a show for 40 episodes simply because You do? You must secretly care a lot that this is trash if you’re still here trying to prove to me that it isn’t.
