Boruto: Naruto the movie and The day Naruto become Hokage
Boruto is the son of the 7th Hokage Naruto who completely rejects his father. Behind this, he has feelings of wanting to surpass Naruto, who is respected as a hero. He ends up meeting his father's friend Sasuke, and requests to become... his apprentice!? The curtain on the story of the new generation written by Masashi Kishimoto rises!
Stop now all fan fiction story writing about Naruto. It's decided who's gonna marry who!
And the ones who guessed Naruto and Hinata will be a couple were right. Also those who counted for Sasuke and Sakura (though I freaking don't still understand why Sakura and Sasuke ended as a couple. It just doesn't fit) get what they were hoping for. So let's look to a next generation.
Here is Boruto. Yeah...why that copycat name from Naruto? Well anyways. First time I saw news about Naruto series to have Boruto next generation series was almost month ago in Japan when I visited one manga shop. And first thought in my head was that "I hope this isn't just another way to copycat Naruto series best parts and use it over and over exhaustion". I haven't got a change to read Boruto manga yet but now I have watched those two movies and have created start for my opinion.
For first let's look to new main characters. Though Boruto has a copycat name he still owns different personality than Naruto and actually different what we haven't seen yet in Naruto series. I have to say that it feel refreshing! I need to admit that lately in Naruto I have been fed up about how it just repeats same pattern over and over. But maybe this is something good to follow again.
This one is Boruto's sister, Himawari. Looks very like Hinata but with whisker lines and blue eyes. I would like to say more about here but we don't know about her much yet so let's wait.
Like you may guess Sarada is Sasuke's and Sakura's child. Her design I like the most because she looks more child of her parents than just plain copycat child. If you look closely she has only one main copycat element with her parents' which is similar clothes to yearly Sakura but that's all. When other hand Boruto and Himawari has almost none differences to their parents.
That 3rd person in Boruto's team is quite mysterious. I'm interested to hear mre about him too.
The story in the day Naruto becames hokage is very short. It's just 10 minutes little joke how Boruto brokes Himawari's doll and her powers wakes up. Himawari is really mad to Boruto and tries to hit him but accidentally hits first Naruto. And that's actually the main thing in this story. It was hilarious little joke to watch.
After you have watched this short animation. Move to Boruto movie. That way a time line keeps cohesive. Boruto movie was more peek to this new generation than anything else. And that's fine to do with new generation. Let's wait for other movies to come. I'm sure there will be more.
But overall Boruto's generation seems better than I expected. So at least Naruto fans will like this even ones that aren't hardcore naruto fans. Nice animation style that is very Naruto styled with action backed story.
