Synopsis of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
Following the successful end of the Fourth Shinobi World War, the Village of Konoha has been enjoying a period of peace, prosperity, and extraordinary technological advances. This is all due to the efforts of the Allied Shinobi Forces and the village’s Seventh Hokage, Naruto Uzumaki. Now resembling a modern metropolis, Konoha Village has changed, particularly the life of a shinobi. Under the watchful eye of Naruto and his old comrades, a new generation of shinobi has come forward to learn the ways of the ninja.
Boruto Uzumaki is often in the spotlight as the son of the Seventh Hokage. Despite having inherited Naruto’s boisterous and stubborn demeanor, Boruto is considered a prodigy and is able to unleash his potential with the help of supportive family and friends. Unfortunately, this has only worsened his arrogance and his desire to outdo Naruto which, along with his father’s busy lifestyle, has strained his relationship. However, a sinister force brewing within the village may threaten Boruto’s carefree life.
