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
all boring to watch with no real cost to their outcome and kids who aren't even genin yet beat jounin level shinobi constantly.
As someone who's watched Naruto and Naruto Shipudden, I have to say I'm disappointed.
Don't waste your time. Skip this one.
[Nov 19, 2020] Update: I have been reading the Boruto manga for a while now and it is good. The anime is mostly not based on the manga but is instead anime canon (I don't know why?). Check out the manga but avoid the anime at all costs!
[January 2022] Update: The manga is okay. Just okay. Started off strong but everyone is over-powered and it just isn't fun to follow any more. I tried, I really did. I've read over 60 chapters and I'm putting it down. It's been real.
I would still suggest reading the manga anyway, until you feel it getting out of hand. It is a decent read, great art work, great flow but the plot is kinda meh!
