The Boruto manga continues to dominate charts when it is released every month, as has the anime despite anime-only content criticism from Naruto fans. Although, overall, Ukyo Kodach’s work on Boruto Naruto Next Generations has been consumed by majority of Naruto fans in a positive manor and it’s quite surprising that he has been stood down from his role as manga illustrator and writer.
The reason for this? It’s because Masashi Kishimoto, the original creator of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, is returning to the Naruto universe and will take over the Boruto manga as of Boruto manga chapter 52, which is expected to be released on the 20th or 21st of November, depending on where you live around the world.
This return of Kishimoto has raised some questions though. Because of the monthly rate the manga has arrived up until now since its inception in 2016, the Boruto anime has held off as much as possible from manga content. It is only really now that the Boruto anime is starting to delve into Kara and Kawaki. Many, including myself, believe that the Boruto anime would improve if the manga was to produce more content by switching to weekly, as the Naruto Shippuden manga was.
This would result in the anime being able to produce more manga content and it’s all a possibility now, as Kishimoto has returned. Thus far though, we haven’t been told if this will actually happen or not but I am hopeful, as I am sure most Boruto fans are.
