Synopsis

The sun has set on Naruto Uzumaki's youth and is rising on the children of the next generation. One of these kids is Sarada Uchiha, daughter of Naruto's best friends Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno. Sharing a strong likeness with her father, Sarada has always wondered why she doesn't have any of her mother's features. When she discovers a photograph featuring Sasuke's old comrade Karin, Sarada is shocked to discover that she bears more of a resemblance to this strange woman than she does to her mother.

When Sasuke returns to the village with news of a massive impending threat, Naruto obeys his duty as the Seventh Hokage and accompanies his old friend on an investigative mission. Unbeknownst to them both, Sarada and her friend Chouchou Akimichi pursue them, intent on solving the mystery of Sarada's parentage.

I felt Gaiden is more for the fans who wants a slice of the nostalgia from the naruto universe than an actual story with good development.

My Review from Japanator:

It’s been a few months since I published my review for Boruto: Naruto The Movie, so make sure to check that out as well. It is important to note that Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring is the prequel to the movie so obviously you don’t need to watch the movie to enjoy it, but you definitely need to be familiar with the main series. Taking place after Chapter 700, this chapter focuses on the new generation, mostly Sasuke and Sakura Uchiha's daughter—Sarada.

Although meant as a prologue for the movie, and just a side story, this Gaiden ...

I just read Naruto Gaiden again and I want to say that this 10 Chapter manga is the worst story Kishimoto has put out yet. Yes. Worse than early Part 2 Naruto and Final Arc Naruto. Kishi had all the time in the world to make a great story like with The Last and the Boruto movie but for some reason he decided to take inspiration from Keeping up with the Kardashians for Naruto Gaiden.

Sarada is a Mary Sue. She gets all the power ups in the world without proper training and Chouchou just reminds me of Jar Jar Bings. The "comedy" in this is ...
