Boruto: Naruto Next Generations December 2017 Schedule, Mitsuki Manga Story to be Adapted

Posted on December 7, 2017

First Sarada received the spotlight in the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime through adaptation of the Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring manga (which was written by Naruto’s original creator, Masashi Kishimoto). Now, the anime will adapt the manga story of Boruto and Sarada’s fellow team member – Mitsuki! Released in April 2016, Naruto Gaiden: The Road Illuminated by the Full Moon is a one-shot, forty-something page manga. It will be covered in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations episode 39 later this month. It’s unclear if the entire chapter will be covered in one episode or if it will extend out to other episodes as we only know what’s to come in Boruto: Naruto Next Generation until the end of the year. Whatever the case, exciting adventures await in the anime, take a look at the Boruto: Naruto Next Generation schedule below!

Episode spoilers ahead!

  • ayami

  • Billy Townhouse

    Well, if they start putting the manga into the anime, the anime will quickly catch up with the manga, so they give us these episodes instead.

  • MotanuClujean

    ammm, if you didn’t knew, the part they showed us is canon for the whole series, it’s just not presented in the manga.

  • ayami

    I wonder how many episodes they will do to cover the movie though

  • Edward

    I’m thinking it’ll be the anime’s first huge arc so around 25 episodes maybe?

  • AsurasPath22

    Everything is canon mate. Do your research before commenting. The anime is being written by the mangaka’s assistant.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    DMC is dead, long live Bayonetta. Hail Bayonetta 3

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)


  • Anthony_weaver86

    Bayonetta is having another game for the switch

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Devil may cry not dead doe!

  • Anthony_weaver86


  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    What are we in school ? This probably why people don’t use saiyan island like that any more. Get that grammar stick out yo Ass

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    It’s annoying when people under 30 act as if they don’t know Ebonics or Slang(secret-language) used by the youth just to seem smart or mature.

  • PurexedSolitude;

    Perhaps he’s asking what that means.

  • Aldridge517

    Yeah, we call that canon filler. Technically it’s a part of the story, but finding Himawari a souvenir doesn’t exactly move the plot forward.

  • *Trafalgar D. Water Law*

    Dmc 5 is in the works and will probably be announced soon

  • Anthony_weaver86

    One I didn’t know what you were saying about doe and I didn’t even say it in matter of an insult, so you’re the one with the dildo in your butt

  • Anthony_weaver86

    That’s exactly what I was saying, he or she got to emotional for no reason

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Oh that’s cute

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Anyone saw the spiderman Multiverse trailer?

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Lol I was just tryna bait some people out & hype the site up it been dead for too long

  • Anthony_weaver86


  • Whoo, new aot ova coming soon about Annie, no release date yet but hype, and final battle is happening in the manga next month, the characters are so much more complex now if you look at them from season 2 to now in the manga

  • BudokaiLimit

    Dragon Ball Super Kai should be a thing with better animation and plot from the manga

  • Goku Black


  • I agree even though im more of a DBS manga fan, we dont need the series milked even more, kai is fine where it is fixing the problems with Z

  • Is it just me or does *spoilers from the manga, do not read further if anime only* borutos chakra sword remind anyone of kuwabaras spirit sword from Yu Yu Hakusho?

  • Billy Townhouse

    I didn’t say that it was not canon.

  • Billy Townhouse

    Well I did not say that it was not canon.
