The official Shounen Jump site opened a countdown timer with the text "Next Generation" two weeks ago and revealed today that a manga series for Boruto will publish as part of Weekly Shounen Jump magazine at a monthly basis starting Spring 2016. The series will center around protagonist Boruto, the son of Naruto.

Mikio Ikemoto will be the illustrator of the manga. He previously worked as an assistant for Masashi Kishimoto, the original manga creator of Naruto. In addition, Kishimoto will be supervising the manga and Ukyou Kodachi will be writing the script.

Oh Well, at least Masashi can continue his deserved holidays.

And another prediction with this is a anime adaption in maybe three years or so...
How I love a game

That's not a surprise, Kishimoto don't deserve to continue with this one!

How I imagine the conversation:

Kishimoto: Look you guys, I'm done with Naruto. I gave his kid a stupid fucking name and everything.
Shounen Jump: B-But you give us so much money many fans! You can't stop! The people demand more Naruto!
Kishimoto: How about this, then? Get some other poor bastard to draw it and I'll make sure he doesn't fuck up too badly. It's still Naruto.
SJ: Okay, fine. But don't forget, you're in here forever...

Or something along those lines. Honestly, with Kishimoto actually wrapping up the series in such a rushed way (apparently) it sounds like he doesn't really want to work on it anymore. Or at least have a break from being a mangaka. But this definitely seems like it was on the SJ side of things, rather than from Kishimoto himself. Hope they don't demand too much from the new artist.


Also, Uzumaki Boruto is a much worse name than Albus Severus Potter, and here I thought that couldn't be topped in terms of lulzy protagonist offspring names.

Good news but will Naruto ever end? In 2025, we will probably have a new series of Naruto which is about Boruto's son and yeah, I'm really looking forward to it.

Better question would be:
Which will end first? Hiatux x Hiatus, One Piece or the Naruto series?

Great to hear. Some of the next gen ninjas seems interesting.

Not too surprised to see this...will probably read. It's only 1 chapter a month anyway. Doesn't look like the franchise will die in the next 5 years as this will prob get some kind of adaption at some point and they are startimg on adapting the hiden novel series already

What can they actually do with this? The villains in Naruto were already OP, if they add a weaker villain for Boruto then it's just plot convenience.

Strength of the villain doesn't matter if he is handled well enough., even moreso if the story isn't centered around saving the world.
All in all, it will depend on the writer's skills. If they can make engaging villains and use the existing characters properly, it can be a good story.

Naruto won't end for awhile as we don't know how many volumes this will have. I wouldn't find it too surprising if this gets anime adaptation in the future.

I'm pretty sure he's going to write everything about the story, but just leave the art to the new artist (much like Toriyama did with DB Super).

EDIT: Nvm. I just read the article on here. :/

============================================
On another note, I can't stop laughing at Boruto's face. Mitsuki, Sarada, Metal Lee, Chocho, Inojin, Shikadai, Araya, Shinki, and Yodo all look pretty good, but Boruto's face is just... No. Hopefully, it is just the angle it was drawn at.

Still prefer the original, over the new art.



Can't complain, though, since it is a continuation.

The funniest part is that the original got a shitty epilogue ending just so they could wrap it up and now they are back for more.
Talk about pointless lmao.

He's only supervising it, chill....The man is doing a sci-fi manga

The guy that wrote the Gaara novel is the writer and Kishi's assistant is drawing it

ughh

"Boruto" (ボルト) is the Japanese pronunciation of the English word "bolt". His name is a reference to his cousin Neji, whose name means "screw" (捻子).
Bolt is reference to his lighting abilities.

yea pretty lazy man..

By 2020 Pierrot will probably give us a filler-laden anime adaptation of this. I'll probably check this out, might as well.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

I've never read the manga for Naruto, I've always seemed content with the fillers in the anime. The last episode is the acceptable standard it should be at.
All credit goes to Sacred.
