    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 41 – Team 7: First Mission!!
    Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki have come together and formed ‘Team 7’. The three, led by Jonin Sarutobi Konohamaru, have received their first mission. The mission details the repelling of bandits who have been attacking a village, and making it so that they never come back again. Boruto and the others immediately depart for the village, and come face-to-face with a young woman named Kiri, who is the daughter of the village chief who had suddenly passed away and has inherited her father’s role, and the others who support her..

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 42 – The Power of Unity
    Ninja who were disguised as bandits have kidnapped Kiri. As Genin, Boruto and the others are not originally meant to be given missions that involve fighting other ninja. However, due to the pleading of the village and through Konohamaru’s judgement, Team 7 now has their mission changed from “Repelling Bandits” to “Rescue Kiri”.

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 43 – The Work of Shinobi
    Ever since their first mission, Boruto has been extremely unsatisfied with all the simple and plain missions they have received. It was to this Boruto that he and Team 7 received the mission to “capture the criminal who is holding up the bank”. Boruto is all fired up to be able to show off after such a long time. However after arriving at the scene, the criminal who faces them is just a weak man who was unfairly fired from his company recently.

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 44 – The Appearance of the White Night Band!!
    An event thought to have been caused by a group of bandits called the White Night Band has occurred at the Village of the Hidden Leaf. The White Night Band are “righteous theives”, who steal money and items of value from the rich, and give them to the poor, and have been through several villages. Although they are “righteous theives”, Boruto holds a strong dislike for them due to stealing from other people and involving people who are unrelated, and goes to seek Shikadai’s opinion. However, Shikadai expresses that maybe there are things that cannot be measured by good and evil.

  • KDG

    I’m sure we all knew Boruto and Sarada were going to end up on the same team, but doesn’t it seem a bit unbalanced to have two geniuses with powerful doujutsu on one team together? And does anyone know when the anime is supposed to get into the Boruto: Naruto the Movie plot?

  • narutobleachop

    Yea, they made this team super unbalanced! To anwser your Q, its coming in Spring

  • KDG

    Thanks for the info. And indeed, they absolutely made this team unbalanced. It was understandable pairing Naruto with Sasuke, as Naruto didn’t display much talent as a ninja and Sasuke constantly excelled. But this is overdoing it – even more so with Mitsuki (who can kill your average Jounin) thrown into the mix. This Team 7 is going to be a powerhouse from the very beginning.

  • BudokaiLimit

    this show is trash until the repetition of chuunin exam

  • Paul Watson

    Why U Hatin? Lmao. Its Nice To See More Than Just Main Plot Points. If We Only Saw Main Plot Points, The Show Would Be Over After Like 2 Years.

  • KDG

    I guess the whole point was to bring the Sannin team full circle, with Boruto and Sarada being offsprings of the three previous generation’s Sannin-disciples, along with Mitsuki who is the “son” of one of the original Sannin.

  • Navok76

    He isn’t hating, he is saying the truth and even a lot of Naruto fans agree about that

  • Paul Watson

    A Series Can’t Be Non-Stop Action. That’d Be Incredibly Boring. Even DBZ, Naruto, And Even One Punch Man Have Episodes Of Downtime.

  • Navok76

    80% or 90% of this anime is a downtime (i just excluded Sarada and sakura’s fights because they weren’t bad), not to mention that they made a legendary character like rock lee have a son with weak personality.

  • KDG

    Being legendary doesn’t mean one’s offspring won’t be without weakness. Have we already forgotten that the Fourth Hokage’s only son failed the graduation exam several times because he couldn’t make a simple clone? To make Metal Lee some type of infallible beast because of Rock Lee’s accomplishments (which did not come without an excessive amount of training and perseverance, mind you) is just bad writing.

    In regards to the amount of downtime in Boruto, you do realize the Five Great Nations aren’t constantly one assassination attempt away from all-out war, right? It’s not the same atmosphere as Naruto. Naturally there would be less conflicts and epic battles in a continuation series where, for the first time ever, the entire world is at peace, with each of the five shinobi nations actually making an effort to cooperate in the interest of continued peace – not to mention that for the first time the Five Kage are friends and former comrades in arms.

  • Sakura Haruno

    I’m a massive Naruto fan, and I hate seeing all these… “Fans” Of Naruto bashing Boruto. Yes the show is slow, but Naruto was also slow. This time around we have better quality, and a better feel and connection to the story, so I feel like the show shouldn’t get as much hate as it currently does.

    If you’d like, comment something you dislike about the show, I’ll reply and give some of my own opinions.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Lmao Paul you and this damage control

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Naruto wasn’t slow episode 12 they was fighting Zabuza lmao

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    This quality is also not better than naruto and it also lacks a edge…blood,danger and interesting mystery is what it lacks compared to the original series Sakura

  • Scott Baker✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    it censerd older mitsuki smoking..

  • Paul Watson

    lol Ur Joking Right? The Entire Series Is A Mystery. Everything Since Episode 1 Has Been A Mystery. Also The Quality Is About The Same.

  • Paul Watson

    When Was He Smoking?

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Keyword “interesting”

  • Navok76

    the problem is that they making metal lee a joke character with his personality weakness, and the idea of making character a valueless in the beginning but legend in the end is getting old and boring.

    in naruto P1 and naruto shippuden the fights were very good compared to boruto.

  • Paul Watson

    Im Interested, lol.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    That’s interesting

  • Paul Watson

    Don’t U Wanna Know Who Kawaki Is Or How The Leaf Was Destroyed, Or What Exactly Boruto’s Doujutsu Is?

  • Navok76

    in the manga maybe?

  • Paul Watson

    I Don’t Remember Him Smoking In The Manga Tho.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    But you need more in Naruto we had wondered who Sauske brother was,Naruto family,The akatsuki,,Kakashi was a mystery,Orochimaru and Jiriyai Danzo..Tobi it’s more the tailed beast and it’s more

  • KDG

    A lot of that blood and danger had to do with the Five Great Nations’ antagonistic relationship with one another pre-Akatsuki. Of course it’s not as present in Boruto; the world is ultimately at peace. In Naruto, the world was constantly a conflict or two away from war. In Boruto, the same countries that wanted each other dead are allied, and working to maintain the peace afforded by the Fourth Shinobi World War.

  • KDG

    Naruto was an original series. Boruto is the spin-off of Naruto. It only makes sense that Boruto is less mysterious, as we have already spent years watching the development and growth of everyone’s parents, learning the special bloodline traits of almost every clan, etc. We went into this series knowing almost the full history of the shinobi world that is Boruto’s foundation. You’re expecting way too much from what is basically a sequel.

  • Navok76

    the hidden mist arc that was shown in naruto part 1 is better the mist arc in boruto

  • KDG

    In Naruto, the shinobi world was in a constant state of conflict. That’s not the case in Boruto. You’re expecting epic clashes to take place early on in a world that is already established as peaceful, in comparison to a former world that was one wrong mission away from total chaos.

  • Paul Watson

    ^ Yep.

  • Paul Watson

    We Do Have The Mystery Of Kara And Urashiki Tho.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    That does not hold weight Dragon ball z came after dragon ball and did it better

  • KDG

    The Hidden Mist in Boruto is a peaceful one, albeit with a few blood-thirsty shinobi with dreams of Kirigakure’s “Blood Mist” glory days. You’re making arguments that all boil down to my original rebuttal: the world is not the same war-torn shinobi world that it was during Naruto. You’re expecting epic clashes to take place early on in a world that is already established as peaceful.

  • Navok76

    tbh most of what saw from boruto was stupid talk about power of friendship and real fights

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    More damage control a person with a Madara picture would be on it

  • Navok76

    not real fights*

  • KDG

    Actually it does hold weight. Dragon Ball Z was more entertaining in that the fights became more epic and urgent following several retcons (ie: Piccolo being a Namekian, Goku being a Saiyan, and the massive power-scale overhaul that followed), as well as poor writing from an author who has openly admitted that he doesn’t remember things about the Dragon Ball universe, and merely goes with the flow, writing whatever comes to mind even if it conflicts with already established lore. That is the difference between the Naruto and Dragon Ball universes.

  • KDG

    I don’t see how that’s much different from Naruto spending two whole series chasing down Sasuke out of nothing more than pure friendship. Seems like Boruto is just reestablishing old themes relevant to the Naruto universe.

  • KDG

    I’m not sure exactly what you’re getting at.

  • Paul Watson

    Naruto Didn’t Have A Hidden Mist Arc. That Was The Land Of Waves, A Completely Different Area.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    “Poor writing” clearly isn’t what makes an anime popular I don’t understand that point……dude Boruto is kitty I don’t see the big deal

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    I’m getting @ that you’re Bias and being subjective

  • Paul Watson

    Or UR Biased And Being Subjective. U Can’t Compare 2 Series That Take Place In Entirely Different Eras.

  • KDG

    But we’re not discussing what makes an anime popular. You’re expressing your grievances with the Boruto series, the majority of which mostly has to do with a perceived lack of action. All of which stems from the fact that it’s already been established pre-Boruto that the shinobi world that was once full of conflict, death, and mystery is now at peace, with the former warring factions now fully cooperating with one another to maintain said peace. It’s a fairly simple concept.

  • Navok76

    Naruto wasn’t talking about friendship in all fights, unlike boruto

  • KDG

    Most of their fights consisted of:

    Sasuke: Why do you care so much what I do?!
    Naruto: Because we’re friends!

    Did I miss anything?

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Ok

  • KDG

    How exactly am I biased? I haven’t watched an episode of Boruto in two months, for many of the same reasons that you’re currently complaining about the series. I’m merely explaining the reason for said grievances, without agreeing or disagreeing. So please explain to me how exactly I’m being biased. And for that matter, please do explain to me the correlation between my perceived bias and my picture of Madara Uchiha, because frankly I’m not seeing a connection.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    I don’t care about action quit assuming I watch plenty of anime that aren’t action based this is Just terrible but I’m not This is going no where..so I’m out

  • Navok76

    you’re right but did that happen during madara, pain, kakuzu fights? no

  • KDG

    Well they do belong to the same lore, so I suppose he can. The only problem is that most of what he is complaining about has almost everything to do with the fact that they both take place in different eras. I wouldn’t expect epic battles in an environment where everyone is basically holding hands and cooperating, and even having children with shinobi of different clans AND villages. Clearly, for some reason, he expects constant bloodshed and large battles in a peaceful world, though I cannot figure out why that is.

  • Dayvon Rose

    Pain? Yes it did, in fact the reason Kakashi and a few others are alive is because Naruto talked no jutsu Nagato. Yes he defeated the paths, but Nagato died because he revived all the ones he killed. Though a lot, a lot, of the fights during the war was extended due to talking, so much that there were fillers in-between them.

  • KDG

    I never once said or implied that you watch plenty of action-based anime. Don’t know where you’re getting that from.

    And I’m not assuming you care about action – “blood,danger and interesting mystery is what it lacks compared to the original series…” Are these not your own words? I’ve not assumed a thing.

  • KDG

    Boruto is currently 40 episodes in. You’re referencing fights that took place during Naruto Shippuden – which took place well over 200+ episodes AFTER the original series. I think you’re jumping the gun a bit, wouldn’t you say?

  • Navok76

    i am just saying that naruto in his series didn’t use talking about PoF to beat the villains

  • KDG

    To be fair there were a plethora of different themes at play in Naruto. I don’t think Boruto has gotten far enough yet to dive into the more complex themes. Plus, you know, the differing era and atmosphere. I haven’t watched Boruto since the Shin arc, mostly because I’m waiting for the story to get more exciting so I can binge through it, skipping any filler and elements unnecessary to the overall plot. The story will evolve in time, I’m sure. All stories do at some point.

  • Paul Watson

    Could Have To Do With Chapter/Episode 1 With That Huge Foreshadow Of The Leaf Destroyed And Naruto Possibly Dead.

  • KDG

    Said foreshadow also depicted a grown-up Boruto. One should expect that such chaos will take quite a while to manifest.

  • Ashley Allen Chancellor

    Why Do You Type With The First Letter Of Every Word Capitalized? Do You Not Know How To Operate Your Device’s Virtual Keyboard? Or Did You Not Learn How to Write Properly In School?

  • Christopher Cannon Jr.

    So basically next month will be Team 7 vs Bandits, very weak ones no doubt.

  • Paul Watson

    Boruto Actually Doesn’t Have Filler, lol. Its All Canon.

  • KDG

    Give it time, friend. No anime has filler… until it does.

  • The Real Tobi (Cana)

    Actually Toriyama was fairly good at not contradicting previous lore. He may add info later but it doesnt always contradict. Toriyama also only forgot two characters and a few details sometime after the series ended. Plus bad translations and data books bot authored by him led to some misinformation. Toriyama did plan. If you want someone who contradicts and had admitted he doesnt care about continuity look at Fairy Tails author. He thinks fans noticing blatent inconsistincies, plot holes, dropped plots, etc is fans looking too much into his worl

  • The Real Tobi (Cana)

    Says the man typing in all caps lol. Its the internet not school who cares about grammar and punctuation.

  • The Real Tobi (Cana)

    Argument Ad Populum. Just because a lot of Naruto fans think so, doesn’t make it true. Its still getting started.

  • The Real Tobi (Cana)

    So because he has arguments that go against your it’s damage control? I think you have no counter to his argument. So instead you merely label him as doing damage control. As seen above you couldn’t hold your own in someone countering all your points.

  • KDG

    I’m not sure “Demon King Piccolo”, or his many non-Namekian-like offspring would agree with you there. Toriyama’s add-ons quite often contradict previous lore. Hercule/Mr. Satan is a prime example considering he somehow managed to convince the world that Kamehamehas, flight, and such are all parlor tricks, despite Goku and co. who fought in previous tournaments having used many of these “parlor tricks” right before everyone’s very eyes, and even leveled the entire stadium. He also forgot who Tao Pai Pai was at one point.

  • KDG

    Apparently I’m biased for the same reason.

  • Ahtma

    Dragon Ball Z is a significantly different kind of story than Dragon Ball. Dragon Ball was much more about adventure, Z was more about action.

  • Ahtma

    Toriyama planned very few things, but a majority of his writing is him just going with the flow. He stated this in 1989 in the Jump Gold Selection 4: Dragon Ball Z Anime Special and twice in 1995, in Daizenshuu 2 and 4.

  • Navok76

    tbh i get strange feeling when i see Paul capitalizing the first letter of every word. (no offense)

  • Ahtma

    In some ways it’s significantly different but in other ways Boruto has the potential to massively outshine its predecessor. Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki are an interesting trio: Boruto’s characterization is subversive in the way he doesn’t want to be the Hokage, Sarada is the best aspects of Sasuke and Sakura distilled into one character, and Mitsuki is extremely interesting both from his abilities and what seems to be his motivations.

  • Ahtma

    “Naruto wasn’t talking about friendship in all fights”

    Did we watch the same series?

  • Ahtma

    It’s early on when Log was talking to Orochimaru. In the manga he used his snake lighter to light a cigarette, in the anime he still has the lighter but no cigarette.

  • Sabrescene

    Dragon Ball Z is Dragon Ball, they just split it up in the anime as Dragon Ball wasn’t aired in the US until after Z but they both come from the manga ‘Dragon Ball.’ A better Naruto comparison for that would be Naruto Part 1 & 2 which were split into Naruto & Naruto Shippuden in the Anime.

    If you want a more accurate analogy for Boturo, that would be Dragon Ball Super (or maybe even GT), which just like Boruto started pretty slow – it has picked up the pace quite a bit now though IMO so hopefully Boruto will too.

  • I dont have a problem with it being slow or not having much action, my problem is everything feels like a re-hash from part one with a different twist to it, im just waiting for the first arc that does not recycle part 1 stuff to regain my intrest in the series, if others like it good on them

  • 7610

    Gary Stu protagonist who doesn’t make me want to root for him or care about his “struggles”. Uninteresting vilains who don’t bring anything to the plot, the lore or the characters’ developpement. The quality is definetly not higher (not sure if you’re talking about the story or the animation but whatever). We had a better connection to the story in Naruto because back then we had reasons to care about them, their storylines were a lot more compelling than this lot of golden boys/girls just hanging around. There are my reasons to dislike Boruto, while it still enjoyable to some extent. And Naruto wasn’t slow, the manga at least, the story progressed with each arc which is not the case with Boruto.

    Aside of that, it is not because one is fan of a series that they have to love every thing about it and be enthusiastic every time a new installement of it comes out. Don’t think you’re more of a fan or a “better” Naruto fan because you’re enjoying Boruto while others don’t.

  • Boruto is my favourite anime xd

  • Ashley Allen Chancellor

    I was typing on purpose that way to mock his way of typing. Duh.
    Also, I really couldn’t care less about grammar and punctuation on the internet. This is not about that. This is about typing in a way that physically makes it difficult to read and strains the eyes. Ignoring grammar because you don’t know/don’t care is fine. Going out of your way to type in a way that is non-conducive to legibility is not.

  • Ashley Allen Chancellor

    It’s hard to read, right? You feel like there’s a pause before every word and it’s even slightly painful on the eyes at times. I still have yet to figure out WHY some people do that. Is it a setting on their phone’s keyboard, or do they literally spend the time capitalizing every word (which would take forever to type anything)? If it’s a setting do they not care to fix it, or not know how, or is it completely intentional?

  • AsurasPath22

    30 to 40 episodes in and their is still way more progression in this series than in DBS.

  • AsurasPath22

    Let’s be honest, the majority of the fanbase enjoy Boruto. That’s because it spends most of its time developing its characters, which is what we need right now. Part one of Naruto did the same and part two focused on action. This was all Kishimoto’s intentions for Naruto as well, but he decided to go ahead to the Chuunin Exams. Boruto is a slice of life for now, it will eventually get serious and dark.

  • AsurasPath22

    Not much really, it seems to be one of the few anime shows that have shined throughout the year. I wish DBS was like this too.

  • Ahtma

    Naruto was much faster paced at the start because Kishimoto had the time constraints of a weekly series that could’ve been cancelled at any time hanging over his head.

  • Navok76

    agreed

  • Navok76

    It’s not really peaceful, if you watched the arc then you will know that if those kids succeed then they were gonna be a threat to the mizukage, anyways the reason why i don’t enjoy boruto is the same reason why you don’t enjoy dbz, bad character development, uninteresting villains, etc. so i think it’s all about our preferences, nothing else.

  • Sakata Gintoki

    *Gintama

  • uhMayzedHD

    They wanted the legacy reason why they ask Naruto if they can have it.
    To me it doesn’t matter what Team # they have it has nothing to do with character development or the story, So I don’t see the big deal.

  • uhMayzedHD

    One thing I don’t like about the series it’s to peaceful and there is nothing really happening. Like Villages not clawing at each other throats no more. Only thing interesting happening would be arc with Shin Uchiha. Even Ninjas aren’t acting like Ninja they don’t understand the hardship or they could be at war at any sec with another village. Reason Kakashi ask Boruto could you break your arm?

    Kakashi is tell people what’s wrong with the series.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    Trash

  • 7610

    Let’s be really honest, the majority of the fanbase enjoy Boruto simply because it’s Naruto related. You still see Konoha, jutsus, ninjas and some old characters. That’s it. And the characters aren’t really more developped despite having more screentime which is one of the series’ biggest flaws. A lot of episodes feel just like fillers because they doesn’t show anything new about the characters. But the biggest problem is that most of the characters so far are just not really interesting. They don’t have an interesting goal that makes me invested in their stories, most of them don’t even have a goal, they just want to be ninjas (whatever that means for them) and hanging around with their friends, that’s some pretty weak character arc. Mitsuki, Iwabê and to some extent Inoichi are the only exceptions so far. Somtehing that could make the story more compelling is that “what is the place of the shinobis in this pacicfied and modernized wolrd” theme that the manga is currently introducing, if it’s handled well which is my biggest concern. As for the characters I’ll wait for the series to actually develop them to see if I care about them or not. But right now watching a bunch of spoiled kids having it easy bores me more than anything else.

  • The Real Tobi (Cana)

    King Piccolos rule was eons ago. Roshi and Tsuru possibly Tao were the only ones who knew of him. Later no one knew what KP did not to mention Tambourine didnt use any energy attacks and had wings to fly. So when he killed it wasn’t anything like that. No one but the people at the Kings Castle knew how Piccolo blew up the area or the fight. The King even recognizes Piccolo during the cell games. Also at the time the tournaments werent broadcasted and had a handful of people. So those people provably knew. Not everyone believed Hercule. Those at the Tournaments probably knew. The Announcer did. By the Cell games it had been 13 years since King Piccolo and around 10 since Piccolo.

    As for Tao that was a long while after DB ended. Toriyama has created countless characters for Anime and games. No surprise he forgot one

    Talk about trash and then no episode this week.

  • KDG

    What gave you the idea that I don’t enjoy DBZ? On the contrary, I always have enjoyed DBZ, and I also enjoy Super. I’m just also fully aware and accepting of their flaws, and as such I don’t have high expectations of them. And for the record, I did watch the Hidden Mist arc. It was peaceful, save for a small number of idiots who still dreamed of the “Blood Mist” days, as I explained in an earlier comment. Those small few who wanted Kirigakure to return to its more violent days are not representative of the village as a whole. That said, the Mist is in fact a peaceful village.

    Did you fall asleep at your keyboard? lol

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Hey guys hope the new year is doing you good

  • uhMayzedHD

    No it wasn’t. It was Naruto group is the OG team 7, If you look it the Anime/Manga it doesn’t tell you what team # Jiraiya on and Team Minato was on.

  • Ahtma

    The team that Jiraiya was on was Team Sarutobi. Minato was on Team Jiraiya.

    They didn’t choose the genin life… the genin life chose them..

  • Navok76

    from reading this:
    .i.gyazo.com/4183263c9e56401ab49826ec2fed3624.png
    i figured out that you were disappointed from dbz (i agree with you that it has some uninteresting villains like nappa and captain ginyu with his teammates but the good side is that the plot made their fights exciting to watch)
    about the hidden mist village, you might be right about that, but this show is still unwatchable except if you were extremely bored.
    but if anything makes dbs is a bit better than boruto then it’s the interesting villains.

  • KDG

    On the contrary, Dragon Ball Z remained one of my favorite anime for well over two decades. I think I can attribute that to my fairly low standards – I can just about enjoy anything because I don’t set the bar too high. DBZ will always be one of the greats. I’m simply a fan who can identify and accept most of the flaws of anything I enjoy. So yes, I do feel that DBZ had TONS of problems with continuity, character development, and the story overall (notice how almost none of the villains had any actual motivation or drive other than wanting to destroy the universe for the sake of destroying the universe). However, all of that aside, Dragon Ball Z has always been one of my favorites. Whether that is because of Vegeta, or simple nostalgia, I’m not 100% sure.

    As for Boruto, it’s rather boring at the moment but I’m sure it will pick up. And when it does, hopefully I’ll have a ton of episodes to binge. Either that or I’ll just skip half of the series like I did with Naruto pre-Shippuden. I don’t know if I’d call Boruto unwatchable, but then I haven’t felt the need to watch in a couple months, so I have no real idea what’s going on.

  • Sakura Haruno

    Never stated that I was at a higher ranking than others or better than you. (If you were saying you were someone who dislikes Boruto) My comment was more directed to the comments that I’ve seen. “Everything about Boruto is trash”, “Boruto is a waste of my time.” Just complete negative feedback to the anime. (Manga I have complete different feelings about LOL)

    From where I was going off of in a little bit more detail, because I love getting to hear other sides of views you know, so I can also get a better understanding of where everyone else stands. Naruto was a show almost anyone can enjoy in some shape or form. We grew up with it, we all had the dream to watch Naruto reach his goals. And for an example, by the time the series ended, we became adults. Seeing the new generation was a very exciting moment for us fans, so In my head. “Why does it get all this hate, didn’t we all want this?” I see flaws, but I just ignore them. Hopefully that clears up a little.

    (Sorry for the late response! Forgot to post)

  • Sakura Haruno

    (Oops I only saw 4 comments, didn’t see a whole list) Replying to y’all dw!)

  • Sakura Haruno

    I think I got a good grasp of what you were saying. I agree with you as well for the most part. Right now it’s peaceful, and they are all still fairly young. As anime fans we love the fights, and the action. Naruto had all of that, so I’m thinking the new creator wanted to take a different startup approach with the show, with having more backstory and non canon material.(Fillers) The show will 100% get the action you’re expecting, it’s just going to take a bit of time at this rate. (Thx for the reply!)

    Glad to hear your response!

  • Sakura Haruno

    I see a lot of what you were saying as well, and I agree. I was originally hoping for Boruto to get a more unique moveset. Something with out Shadow clones, and the Rasengan. Thanks for the response!

  • Sakura Haruno

    Oh? I like your point of view as well! I personally find that it has a bit of mystery, but I will agree that is lacking the action we all want. The work of Shin, Mitsuki’s Background, Sasuke’s Journey, and the new Otsutsuki members. I feel like there is a lot we have yet to discover. Thanks for your response!

  • Sakura Haruno

    Oh I would love to talk more about what you consider, “Trash” Currently the story is having a slow build up to the action, but like what Paul said. If we were to jump and rush the story wouldn’t have enough content. Thx for the response.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    It does have a bit of interesting mystery and I think the action is gonna come soon and be great I honestly was trolling. These guys make it too easy lol

    last time i checked the first naruto episode was amazing. we just need to wait until chunin exams and there on, everything is irrelevant filler that ruined the show. i could go on but theres no point

  • Sakura Haruno

    Oh I personally didn’t think it ruined it. We got the Shin arc, and the Genin exam which I think wasn’t too long, and enjoyable. That’s my opinion though.

    You just got to accept that people hate a show you’re a fan of and are gonna voice it. I actually understand the haters for feeling that way about Boruto because in many ways the protagonist is ridiculing almost everything Naruto was about and made most of the fanbase loving the series.

    ” didn’t we all want this?” Actually no. Every story has to end at some point and better be before it becomes a soulless cash grab that only treats its long loyal fans like walking wallets. Sadly, looks like it’s too late for Naruto. Even Kishimoto didn’t wan’t it to continue but Shueisha forced it and that’s the problem with this sequel: it is so forced. Naruto’s story is over. It doesn’t have anything to tell anymore. Naruto is the Hokage, he brang Sasuke back, he pacified the world. And I’m not gonna get invested in Boruto’s story just because he is Naruto’s son, he’ll have to win me over, like his father did, and so far he is pretty far from doing so.

    As for the animation, it is pretty meh for a 2017-18 anime. And don’t get me started on the manga’s art.

  • Only When Vince McMahon Dies™

    Because that’s where the story started at

  • Sakura Haruno

    Understandable. I enjoyed reading your side. I respectively disagree just for the enjoyment of the series part, but I do agree that shows do need an ending point. I’m the type of person who it’s hard to let go, in almost any situation. I end up rewatching frequently because I can relate to the show or it’s just sooo enjoyable. We all grew up with Naruto or I shouldn’t say all. We all are familiar with the Story and the character Naruto, and on my point of view I have a lot of friends (In person) Who agree with me and I’m so use to hearing that one side of, “Keep it going! Keep it going” It leaves me half blind you know? I only hear the good stuff, I also tend to ignore the negative views of the show to some point, because I dislike seeing a show I personally like get hated from.
    I’m getting a little off track, but to bring this conversation to a close.

    I understand that there is a side that dislikes it, and I understand there is a side that likes it. The original reason for me posting this comment is to have a conversation with those who dislike the show or hate it, and I love getting to talk to all of you in a mature way, again like I said before you learn more from an actual conversation, rather than a huge argument. Nice meeting/talking with you.

    (I can’t read the manga, the manga is horrible omg”
