Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is a Japanese manga series written by Ukyō Kodachi and illustrated by Mikio Ikemoto. It was serialised monthly in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump since May 2016 until it was transferred to Shueisha’s monthly magazine V Jump in July 2019.
Unlike the manga, after the flash-forward showing Kawaki the series begins with Boruto attending the Hidden Leaf Village’s Ninja Academy. He awakens a special eye technique, which played a role in detecting contaminated energy in certain people who turned violent. Mitsuki helped in revealing their classmate and friend, Sumire, as the one responsible for contaminating and draining people’s chakras. This led to Boruto trying to save Sumire from both Mitsuki and herself, and to bring her back, having to travel between dimensions to do so.
Then Sarada has her own adventure where she searches for her father, Sasuke Uchiha, while helping him and Naruto save her mother Sakura from Shin Uchiha.
The Hidden Leaf students then go on a field trip to the Hidden Mist Village where Boruto befriends a ninja named Kagura while stopping an attempted coup by traditionalists. Boruto and his class then graduate from the academy, being assigned to Konohamaru Sarutobi with Sarada and Mitsuki and they and the other teams begin having missions, one with Shikadai Nara befriending a criminal named Ryōgi.
The anime also retells the events of Boruto: Naruto the Movie with additional content that includes the antagonist Urashiki Otsutsuki. Following original arcs involve the search for Urashiki who wants to take Naruto’s chakra until Urashiki’s death in the Time Slip arc.
