Boruto the telly anime was fun to watch. I thought it would be just like a continuation of Naruto but it’s new and the new generation are very different from Naruto chaarcters. While Naruto genins dealt with an old school form of child-raising and traumatizing back stories, the genins in Boruto dealt with a more open and adaptive society. For example Shikamaru was really tolerant of his son’s behaviour only offering a wordy advice instead of a physical punishment.
Anyway, at first I thought it was going to be a pain to watch thinking that it will be filler like with made up things… but boy was I wrong. Heck I was influenced by some tumblrs accusing it of being a filler to Naruto. For a long running anime, Naruto was never a perfect anime for it’s die hard fans. After a year of tumblr the fandom was never really satiated with the ending, and I for one am sad over Neji’s death. So whatever Boruto presented it was quick to welcome criticism.
In my opinion, Boruto is a winded up version of Naruto. The opening of a sixteen years old Boruto with a Byakugan in one eye was really good, it makes you want to wait for a few years to see how Boruto ended up like that. The enemy also said that Naruto was dead and that made it the more intriguing.
I loved and hated Naruto anime while I watched it along the way. I was a young adult when I watched it so I already have strong preferences in what I watch. But Boruto got me by episode four. I think Boruto was good from the start after mulling over it. Ok, not counting Sarada’s short dress though, everything’s great. It’s nice to see a mini me version of Naruto having a sister and mom unlike his orphaned dad. I have no opinions when it came to Hinata and Himawari so far so I won’t go there.
Sarada is kick ass, I love Sarada’s no nonsense attitude and the use of tech in the ninja world. I hope that in the future Naruto will have positive screen time with his son via Boruto. It would be a shame to paint him as a very ambitious child dreaming about being a Hokage who aims to change the world, only to fail miserably as a parent. A parent is not perfect but he/she is not made up of failures, even if you lived with your parent for a day there should be something he gave you – something small, something preciously positive which shaped you. Ok this talking about Dads who actually takes care of you even for a day not the ones abandoning you. Anyway some screen caps from the movie.
The manga artwork was quirky.
his child was snooping on Boruto and gang.
