On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Naruto anime, Masashi Kishimoto and his team promised several surprises and we have just learned new details about the first of them. Is about Sasuke Retsuden adaptationa short novel that came out back in 2019 and that, after many years being the request of every Konoha fan, will finally have its own manga.
Sasuke Retsuden is set after the events of Naruto Shippuden and before those narrated in Boruto, at a time when Naruto contracts a deadly disease that makes him unable to use his chakra.. Finding out that it could all be the fault of the so-called Shadow Kage, Sasuke and Sakura go on a mission in search of himself and a cure for his friend, embarking together on a journey far from the Land of Fire that will test “el spirit of husband and wife“.

Sasuke Retsuden is where I know most develops the relationship between Sasuke and Sakura, explaining a romance that in the first bars of Boruto became completely incomprehensible due to its cold and distant nature. The novel was written by Jun Esaka and had illustrations by Masashi Kishimoto, but its manga adaptation (whose first look you can already see on these lines) is in charge of shingo kimurawho stops boasting of ego to clone kishimoto art and offer a result that would pass for that of the mangaka himself.
The third spin off, Konoha Shinden
It will start publishing in Weekly Shonen Jump from October 23 and will have a fortnightly periodicity. And in case you are left wanting more Naruto, calm down because there is another spin off in the making. Is about Konohagakure Shinden, inspired by another ship based on the universe that will be published from October 29. In it we move to the Country of Hot Springs, where Kakashi and Gai go on vacation to celebrate their retirement. Along with Mirai, Shikamaru’s student who must save both legends when a strange presence puts their lives in danger. The will inherited from the ninja returns to beat strongly.
