While there are many reasons to see Boruto, one of the most notable and the one that pushed more fans to watch the series, was nostalgia, since as the chapters go by, we meet again with characters that once made us smile, sad or angry, Of course, now in more adult facets. In this sequel, for example, we can see how the couples that formed at the end of naruto shippudenas well as we see former authorities of the ninja world already retired, enjoying a well-deserved rest after the fourth great ninja war (seeing Gai sensei retired is much better than it seems, trust us).

On the other hand, this new stage of the ninja world that Kishimoto created 23 years ago, he makes sure to keep alive the essence that captivated so many fans of that young blond and rebellious ninja, because despite being based on a world in which peace reigns, various customs such as chunin exams are still in force, the missions in which different villages are involved and the constant training and use of jutsus, among other characteristics.

Something that for many was quite controversial in terms of the plot, was the inclusion of a clan and a large amount of history without much explanation a few chapters after finishing the anime of naruto shippudenWell, when it seemed that the last villain would be Madara Uchiha, Kaguya appeared Ōtsutsuki, mother of the sage of the six paths and first user of the Tree God chakra. Put this way it would seem that everything fits and makes sense, but at the time it came to seem like a somewhat forced and at the same time unfinished idea, since the supposed final antagonist and cause of all the evils of the series did not even last that long since its appearance.

This finally makes more sense Borutosince much of the plot revolves around the Clan Ōtsutsuki that reappears years after the fourth great ninja war in search of revenge and with all the intentions of reclaiming the chakra that according to them belongs to them and humans do not know how to take advantage of it. This sequel not only gives us more information about this group of characters and this great part of their history, but also contextualizes and extends segments of the series such as Dōjutsu, which are special techniques within ninjutsu created by the eyes, and the Kekkei Genkai, which are unique techniques or abilities that depend on genetic factors.


In the case of this anime, they not only had the task of creating new characters that are interesting for the viewers, but they also had to make sure that each one of them fits perfectly into the previous story (which is no small thing, since it is a background of approximately 17 years of content). Despite the difficulties this entailed, the work of kōdachi Y Kishimoto it was a success as they were able to create not only good leads but also a host of supporting characters who consistently manage to shine on their own throughout the series.

Two great characters to highlight are Sarada Uchiha (daughter of Sasuke and Sakura) and Mitsuki (son of Orochimaru). As for Sarada, we are facing a character that brings together the best of the original 7 team, since she has the determination and dream of being Naruto’s Hokage, Sasuke’s natural talent and sharingan, and Sakura’s superhuman strength. On the other hand, Mitsuki is one of the best experiments done by Orochimaru thus far, as he is basically a clone of his. He masters the wind and lightning styles, is able to summon snakes just like his father, and is able to access sage mode at times.


From the first glimpse we had of this new generation of ninjas in Boruto: Naruto the Movie Until now, we have been able to witness fight scenes so good and so well animated that YouTube is already full of individual clips of each fight with thousands of reproductions, and yes, even the mythical AMV (Anime Music Video) with songs from link park. What’s more, a great incentive to start watching Boruto It could be looking for the Naruto, Boruto and Sasuke vs. Momoshiki fight, uploaded to the aforementioned platform by the official Crunchyroll channel. If you like shōnen and action, that video will be more than enough to convince you.
