Shueisha Inc. first approached Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of ‘Naruto’, with the idea of a ‘Boruto’ manga series. Kishimoto initially declined and instead suggested the name of his former assistant, Mikio Ikemoto, as the illustrator for the project. Ukyō Kodachi, who served as the writer on ‘Boruto: Naruto the Movie’, was hired to create the story. The first issue of the manga was published on May 9, 2016. In November 2020, Kishimoto replaced Kodachi as the writer. The TV anime premiered on April 7, 2017. Since then, both the manga and anime have established themselves in the ever-growing ‘Naruto’ fictional universe. Here is what you need to know about the upcoming ‘Boruto’ episode.
