Naruto’s adventures have been running on TV for over ten years now—isn’t it time to give his son the spotlight? That’s exactly what the upcoming anime Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is going to do for Boruto Uzumaki, Naruto’s kid. And, today we got the first fully-animated promotional video narrated by Boruto himself (voiced by Yūko Sanpei):
Boruto: The modernization of the village of Konohagakure continues to advance, and it’s as peaceful as can be. Ninjas might not be needed in this age, but still, I decided to attend the ninja academy. But everyone only looks at me as the “Hokage’s son.” I’ll escape from that label as fast as you can blink and have everyone recognize me for who I am! This is my story! BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS begins airing on April 5 at 5:55 p.m.!
The video features the anime’s main theme song, “Baton Road” by KANA-BOON.
The original Naruto anime and its sequel Naruto Shippuden are available streaming for free on Crunchyroll. VIZ Media publishes the Naruto manga and anime in North America.
