Preliminary (31/? eps)
Boruto is a trainwreck. I can't believe that it took me 31 episodes before I finally accepted how awful it is.

Boruto tries to capitalise on Naruto nostalgia but has nothing going for it.

The characters are lacklustre at best. The animation is atrocious half of the time and there is zero plot development. It feels like the story is just bumbling on and skipping any of the episodes will have resulted in me missing nothing.

Boruto (the character) is the worst part of it all. As the main character, 80% of his identity is the fact that he "hates" his dad, Naruto. The fight scenes are ...

"The Sequel No One Asked For But Still Got"

It took me 40 episodes to realize that whatever the first Naruto had, Boruto lacks completely. This show is as much of a disappointment as a sequel to the original, as it is as a stand alone show.

PLOT - Dreadfully slow. The plot has had no real development since the first episode, nothing really happens. It's just this slice of life bullshit that doesn't build character at all, just random missions. The fact that the Genin-level main cast can deal with Chuunin-Jounin level shinobi on a frequent basis is just awful writing.

ART - If there was saving ...

Okay, if you see my rating you will probably say it's exaggerated. I would answer: so is the "cash-grabness" of this series.
To be honest, Boruto is probably worth more than that. But NOTHING, in my opinion, justifies such dishonesty as Masashi Kishimoto shows with Boruto.

The anime starts with a very intriguing scene: Boruto facing a certain guy, who claims he killed Naruto and the Shinobi era is over, and who apparently destroyed Konoha. Now this is hyping! This is so intriguing! The viewers will want to know more! What do we do then? LET'S PUT 80 FILLERS IN A ROW!
Seriously, as of today Boruto has ...

Preliminary (155/? eps)
I have caught up to the recent 155 episodes and have to say I really really love this show.
Sure, some of the arcs and fillers are BORING, but the main characters and ultimate storyline are super fun and interesting!!

Boruto is a natural-born genius with lots of friends and a loving family. This greatly contrasts Naruto's childhood, so I understand why people could initially write Boruto off as just a spoiled brat... However, through various events, Boruto does finally come to realize how fortunate he is in contrast with his dad's lonely and sad upbringing and grows out of the wanting acknowledgement / attention phase, ...

Preliminary (79/? eps)
Hello , anime lovers.

(NO SPOILERS & short) - The first 49 episodes are fillers.Some are very good and enjoyable-funny, others are ok and there are some, meh... Still though despite the fact that are fillers still you don't want to miss some important arcs of this episodes. Episode 49 is like the worst episode ever... take a deep breath on this one :/ . Episode 50 is a recap of what happend so far, reminding you the progression of most of the characters. From episode 51 starts the real thing and particularly 2 episodes later starts the Momoshiki Arc (first manga arc). This Arc also ...

I don't ever write reviews but I've absolutely had enough of people slandering the Boruto series for silly things such as slow pace, lack of character depth/originality, lack of humor etc. Those of you who expect Boruto to start of with a massive bang have no idea what the Naruto series was about! IT TOOK 720 EPISODES for Naruto to completely finish and some people haven't even watched up to episode 30 to make a judgement on the entire show. The most beautiful thing about Naruto was embarking on a journey following Naruto from the lonely trouble making weakling to becoming the savior of the ...

Preliminary (20/? eps)
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations follows the Naruto series much like one generation follows the next; the series and it's elements have been passed like a torch to the children of the series.

The opening statement for this review should be that the main audience this show is meant to appeal to is not the prior Naruto audience. This anime has tasked itself with appealing to two different audiences; the prior generation whom followed Naruto Uzumaki and the current generation who will now be following our new protagonist Boruto Uzumaki.

Boruto Uzumaki is a solemnly different character than Naruto was; he's spoiled both in the sense ...

Preliminary (168/? eps)
I feel this show gets a bad wrap. I can understand why people wouldn't like it but still. I see all the 1 ratings and I am like damn. How you gonna rate a 150+ episode show just after watching the first 15 episodes. The story is all over the place but that's just how Naruto is and was. The animation is nice looking better then other main stream animes. The is also good. I like the sound effects that go with certain Jutsu's. Characters are a little confusing and bad at first but as the story goes on they mature. I am a Naruto ...

I like thus continuation of naruto shippuden. There is no shortage of good new characters
-Inojin Yamanaka
-Sarada Uchia
-Boruto Uzumaki

The series has not really started yet but it has the potential to surpass naruto & naruto shippuden.

Boruto is more responsible and heroic in the anime than the manga, it's a change to the better in my opinion.

Preliminary (170/? eps)
Studio Pierrot must be full of sadists for putting us through this hot-trash experience.

Where to start, I guess with where Boruto begins. Everyone likes making the argument "Boruto isn't Naruto... So don't expect the same story". BAKA. It's a continuation of the Naruto enterprise and thus should have a similar draw at least. Also, studios have to play to their fan base. And where does the large majority of Borutos fan base come from? You guessed it. Naruto.

The main reason this show is so garbage is because there is no emotional ties to the characters. What do I mean by this? In Naruto, the ...

Preliminary (34/? eps)
I think it's second time i really had to write a review on MAL.
After watching 34 episodes now. I reaaally dont understand why there are any ratings/reviews with score more than 4/5 (there are many 10/10 actually... Wait, what?). It's not about if you like where the series went or no... This show is just bad. It's really hard to point any good sides of it.

When watching end of shippuden i felt like it was different from what Kishimoto had in plans for its end and 'Next Generations' wasn't in his mind for sure~
I really would like to know his honest opinion about this show.

For ...

Preliminary (23/? eps)
All of these 'die hard naruto' fans watching the first few episodes and giving it a shit rating, lmao makes me laugh. I've watched the whole Naruto series twice and have watched Boruto up to the 24th episode currently and ive got to say its not even that bad, i actually enjoy it.

Yes the first few episodes may of been slow and slice of life, but the producer wanted it to be chilled out for the first few, he wanted to make the series appeal to the younger generation too, lmao people giving it a 1/10 rating need to get that pole outta their asses. ...

Preliminary (96/? eps)
The fillers have gone so bad for this show that the content is now unwatchable.

If you just want the visuals and the soundtracks, better to just play OP, EDs on youtube.
Haruhi's endless eight is a lot more tolerable than 80 episodes of filler, quality-wise and quantity-wise.

This is definitely becoming a NOT WATCH. People should discourage the production team to continue this any further.

As of 96 episodes and about 2yrs of airing, the only episodes you will enjoy watching here is Boruto Gaiden (ep. 19-23) and the Chuunin exam (ep. 53-66). So that is currently 17/96 episodes. Your choice if you will still continue as ...

I don't really understand why Boruto is getting so much hate...
Here's my opinion of it.

Story 7/10

The story of Boruto is slightly more boring than Naruto honestly but I enjoy it because it has absolutely no relation to Naruto whatsoever, it is not a continuation of Naruto which probably many thought it was, therefore the bad rep.

But, Boruto has its good parts and bad parts.

For one, the character development for Boruto is not the best but it certainly isn't the worst, it develops characters through the "eyes" of Boruto much like alot of other animes. Each character has their own character development.

Preliminary (211/? eps)
So I am writing this review because I am tired of people saying boruto suck. I agree with you for first 20-30 episodes then i realised that the more you watch this show the better it gets so i just read the manga till chapter 61 and i can guarantee that this show in the near future will be awesome as hell. Some arguements are about naruto's downfall in looks and powers so I will say that naruto had his fair share of 720 episodes as main lead if you still want to watch him go rewatch from the starting. It is obvious that the ...

Preliminary (151/? eps)
UPDATE to my previous review, we had stopped watching at episode 151 back in (April 2020), and watched from 151 to 232 in the past month (May 2022)

This anime has gotten so amazing... I think I honestly like it more than the End of Shippuuden.

The action and animation has kept improving, with one of the most amazing combat sequence I have ever seen in any anime. Emotion and Drama is also top notch. And since the anime has not had a single filler episode since episode 156, everything has felt meaningful and really fun to watch. For anyone who ever enjoyed Naruto at any ...

I am straight away saying it that I don't like Boruto bcz it is just super bad, like no one needed this show but still got it.


Here's a couple reasons why it is sh*t:

The protagonist: Boruto Uzumaki himself, the new protagonist, is not even likeable and is just a brat. He hates his dad(Naruto) because he didn't come home.

And after recently graduating the academy he:

Preliminary (37/? eps)
True story...I save the new episode of this show each week for a night that i’m Not feeling very tired but really need to get to sleep...if that doesn’t tell you enough, feel free to read on!!!

I’m just going to get straight to the point,because this show at its current point (37 episodes in), is bad. It’s hard to write a review without drawing comparisons to Naruto, so I’ll get that out of the way quickly. As a stand-alone show without any previous knowledge of Naruto and his generation, this is a 2 at best. I feel like seeing the grown up ...

Preliminary (208/? eps)
edit: removed the tldr

This anime is such a good current airing anime. The fight scenes don't take 50 episodes (cough cough original naruto). The characters feel so real especially if you watched the prequel. The animation is great and the style is cool. All the characters go through huge character development, and important life lessons are taught. If you like psychology, fight scenes, and unique original takes on stories you'll love it. Great to binge. People say it's slow since the first 100 episodes are about getting to know the world and its cast with mini-arcs, but each story is so great. This is 100% ...

Preliminary (165/? eps)
In my opinion, Boruto is highly enjoyable. Everyone has their own opinions, and this is mine. There are also many things that I want the anime to tackle, but just because it doesn't, does not mean that it is a bad show.

Story: Based on the direction that the series is taking, I believe that it will tackle the major plot point introduced at the end of Naruto Shippuden: the Ootsutsuki. It will also focus on the story of Naruto's son, Boruto and another boy named Kawaki, who was seen in the first episode. I really enjoyed watching the buildup from the academy to the ...
