“Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is a Japanese manga series written by Ukyō Kodachi and illustrated by Mikio Ikemoto. Serialized in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump, Boruto is a spin-off of and sequel to Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto and follows the exploits of Naruto Uzumaki’s son Boruto and his ninja team while following a path to follow once they grow up. An anime television series adaptation directed by Noriyuki Abe started airing on TV Tokyo on April 5, 2017. Unlike the manga that started as a retelling of the film Boruto: Naruto the Movie, the Boruto anime acts like a prequel, before Boruto and his friends became ninjas before the later arc.
Critical reception to the series has been largely positive with most critics liking the traits of the main characters, most notably Boruto who, while resembling his father Naruto, still has different reasons for making pranks and at the same time bonds with others. Pierrot’s anime prequel also earned praise for its use of both new and returning characters. Shueisha shipped a million units of the manga series as of January 2017.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boruto:_Naruto_Next_Generations
