Boruto Naruto Next Generations anime is a spinoff manga series developed by Kishimoto Masashi and Ukyo Kodachi. This takes place after the event’s of original 2000s Naruto Shippuden anime series. The plot is about Naruto who is now Hokage of the Leaf Village and tackling responsibility of protecting it’s people. Now Naruto has a son called Boruto who doesn’t want to follow in his dad footsteps. One of the main characters Sarada Uchiha wants to become hokage in this story. Anyways Boruto deals with every day problems in the leaf village. He wants to become to best shinobi and protect his friends. Later on, Boruto meets characters such as Mitsuki who is a child of Orochimaru. Along with children from original Naruto casts who inherit their ninjustu and traits. All of the original cast are grown up and have children (well some of them).
Throughout the series, alot of people didn’t like Boruto due to being better than original. Boruto Naruto Next Generations doesn’t capture of original series had. Some story arcs were weak (such as Mitsuki Disapperance arc), but I like Chunin Exam story. Which I am going to cover in a second, the story has alot of filter that turns off fans. These filters can be skippable if you’re interested in the main story. I will do a video on my Anjim 3.0 channel about anime filters and why they exist. Make sure to subscribe to that channel along with my main one. That being said, I am going to review episode 53 Hinawari ‘s birthday. This episode is similar to Boruto The Last Movie if you haven’t watch it yet. It’s been years since I have watch Naruto and might forget this along the way (make sure correct in the comments).
The episode starts off went Momoshiki Otsusuki and his bodyguard Kinshiki discussing plans to finish what Kagura started (during events in Shippuden). Everything is going peaceful in Konoha and Naruto makes a tv appearance which turns out to be a shadow clone. Denki and Shikadai discussing about becoming a chunin. Boruto wanted to become a greater ninja like plot states. Shikadai and Boruto have a conversation on top of the train about becoming coo.l Inojin, Cho-Cho, Shikadai and Minogi is at the training field about Chunin Exams. Shikamaru informs Hokage Naruto that he has more work to do. A scientist named Katasuke introduce a new ninja tool called “Scientific Ninja Tools” which doesn’t require chakra but uses cartridge to use Justu instantly.
Naruto disapprove of these Scientific Ninja Tools because it’s cheating and he wants Ninjas to use their natural chakra. Katasuke walks away dissatisfied and during the lab, he comes up with a plan. He wants to get more data and a unknown assailant attack him from behind. Naruto, Inojin and Shikadai is playing handheld video games at Thunder Burger. Mitsuki and Sarada inform Boruto about Chunin Application and Exams. Sarada gives Boruto peep talk about his goals and talking exam seriously. In Uzumaki Household, Naruto comes home and everyone is delighted for Hinwarai’s birthday. Daddy Naruto and Boruto have a talk about not spending time with each other. Soon as Naruto grabs the cake, it turns out to be a shadow clone. Leaving everyone sadden and Boruto angry.
Leaving Boruto having a huge argument with his mother Hinata. Boruto goes to Naruto office and see pictures along with his old orange jacket. Still upset about Naruto not coming home, Boruto tries to run away. As soon Boruto reaches the door, Sasuke appearance looking for Naruto. The episode ends Boruto looking for a mentor which is Sasuke Uchiha. This episode tackles alot of issues like cheating, not having dad around and studying. Boruto suffers from daddy issues like some kids went they don’t spend time with their parents.
This is one of my favorite arcs because Boruto is similar to Naruto as a kid. Naruto didn’t know about his dad until later in the series. Now Naruto has a kid, how does it effect Boruto. I am happy that Boruto has his own goals instead of following his dad’s footsteps. Well there is alot of secrets that Boruto has to uncover about himself.
I love went Naruto told Katasuke (which he is a bonafide villain) that he wants old school way not modern. Which ninja doesn’t need a tool to uses jujstu but their talent. Although this is not better than original Chunin Exam story arc. We gets to see what Boruto has to go through in this ninja life.
