The ones who have followed ‘Naruto’ throughout will very well remember how he was once a prodigal yet naive kid with big dreams. He played silly pranks on others and was often looked down upon. Even when he claimed that he wanted to be the Hokage of his village, he was often told he’ll never make it. But now, after all these years, Naruto has proved everyone wrong and is finally the Hokage of his village. With him, even the Green Leaf village has gone through a major transformation. From being underdeveloped to becoming somewhat of a metropolis, nothing about Green Leaf is the same.
Unfortunately for Naruto, although he has everything he wanted, life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Often, with his men, he is forced to travel to the borders of the village, neighboring towns, and other distant locations just to ensure that the people of his village are safe. While he and his men are out there protecting the village, a new generation of shinobi start training to later take on the responsibility of protecting the village. Among these shinobi, Naruto’s own son, Boruto, is a gifted young boy who’s a lot like his father. He’s defiant, mischievous, and hates the fact that he is often associated with his father’s name. And this, he tries to make a name for himself.
The right opportunity strikes when Boruto and his friends learn about a treat that looms in the outskirts of their village. They take it upon themselves to protect their people from this evil force and along the way, they learn a lot about what it takes to be a shinobi.
