What Is Good About Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

The Characters

While I’m not a big fan of Boruto, I really enjoy Sarada Uchiha and Mitsuki’s stories. Also extra props to the supporting cast as well as the original Konoha Eleven in their adult life, it’s actually interesting to say what they do in their later years while raising the next generation.


I really REALLY like Boruto: Naruto Next Generations artwork for both characters and settings. The illustrator has their own style but still captures Kishimoto’s own art style so well.

Action Scenes

Moments in the manga where characters go into battle are really appealing to the eye. There’s a lot of detail in each page, even with the more simplistic panels. I know this may be a rather odd Pro entry but I just HAD to include it.

What Is Bad About Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

Plotline Pacing

This could certainly be improved on. When I first started reading this series, I was quite disappointed to see how a lot of the more interesting characters lacked A LOT of development as opposed to some of the other characters. This manga is still ongoing so there’s certainly still time, of course!

Overall Conclusion

Are you a fan of the original Naruto manga? Then be sure to check out Boruto for an easy-read, fun story to get stuck into!
