Is not a naruto remake and neither is the boruto reboot that many expected, but it is still exciting news. The big announcement about Naruto from Jump Festa 2023 was the confirmation that Sasuke Retsuden, one of the spinoffs of the manga, will have its own anime early next year. It will be a kind of arc inside boruto: Naruto Next Generation and will be released next January 8, 2023.

Sasuke Retsuden was a short novel about Naruto that came out in 2019 and, given its success, was turned into a manga last October. Since then they have published five free chapters and has come to be known as Naruto: Sasuke’s Story—The Uchiha and the Heavenly Stardust. The anime will be integrated into Boruto, which will stop all stuffingit will focus on it and, once finished, it will start the highly anticipated Code Arc.

What is Sasuke Retsuden about?

Sasuke Retsuden is set after the events of Naruto Shippuden and shortly before those narrated in Boruto, just at a time when Naruto contracts a deadly disease that renders him unable to use his chakra.. Discovering that everything could 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 Country of Fire that will put to the test “the spirit of husband and wife“.

Sasuke Retsuden is where he most develops the relationship between Sasuke and Sakura, explaining a romance that in the first bars of Boruto became completely incomprehensible due to how cold and distant they both seemed. The original novel was written by Jun Esaka and had illustrations by Masashi Kishimoto, but its manga adaptation has been carried out by shingo kimurawho has stopped showing off his ego for clone kishimoto art and has conquered the fans. The series is already among the most read on Manga Plus and as soon as this anime repeats its charm, we are facing one of the great premieres of 2023.
