Synopsis

The spirited Boruto Uzumaki, son of Seventh Hokage Naruto, is a skilled ninja who possesses the same brashness and passion his father once had. However, the constant absence of his father, who is busy with his Hokage duties, puts a damper on Boruto's fire. Upon learning that his father will watch the aspiring ninjas who will participate in the upcoming Chunin exams, Boruto is driven to prove to him that he is worthy of his attention. In order to do so, he enlists the help of Naruto's childhood friend and rival, Sasuke Uchiha.

The Chunin exams begin and progress smoothly, until suddenly, the Konohagakure is attacked by a new foe that threatens the long-standing peace of the village. Now facing real danger, Naruto and his comrades must work together to protect the future of their cherished home and defeat the evil that terrorizes their world. As this battle ensues, Boruto comes to realize the struggles his father once experienced—and what it truly means to be a ninja.

Like many anime fans of my generation, I began my life as an anime fan through Cartoon Network's Toonami block, featuring shounen classics such as Dragon Ball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Rurouni Kenshin. However, for me personally, I was on the tail end of those shows' airtime, only catching the Majin Buu saga and reruns of the first few episodes of other shows. I didn't come in at the beginning, so it wasn't like starting a brand new adventure, and it wasn't until around 2005 that I first got to experience the start of a brand new story, and that story, of course, was read more

I really wanted to review this movie, because it's officially Kishimoto's final involvement with the Naruto franchise (if nothing changes, that is) and I wanted to make somewhat of a tribute to this series, that has been part of my life for quite some time.

Story (3/5):
The story is nothing special. It's basically an encore to the series' epilogue and centers around the new generation, that got introduced in the final chapter of the main series. The focus is Naruto's son Boruto, who is torn between admiring his father as the hokage and rebelling against him for not having any time for read more

This is my review on the recent Naruto movie. This movie is by far my favorite. It did have it's ups and downs, which I will eventually deal with. By the way, expect to be spoiled.

So this is literally what the Naruto Gaiden manga as led to. We finally get to see the new generation in all it's glory. We see Naruto fulfilling his dreams, as well as juggling his children, we see the Chunin Exams, as well as Sasuke going in. To be honest everyone gets to shine to an extent....Except TenTen. What I found odd about this story was the villains(Momoshiki and read more

Starting with a clever dialogue and moving into an emotional and tension filled story, Boruto delivers some of the best that Naruto has had to offer throughout its original run.

Boruto picks up marginally after the time skip between the end of the manga and the Naruto movie "The Last." If you have not seen those two yet, I recommend watching them before Boruto as many references and assumptions are taken from knowing those stories.

In terms of art and music, Boruto delivered high quality work. The entire film was enjoyable as known melodies from Naruto intertwined with original soundtracks to give the viewer just enough read more
