Boruto’s Anime Will Go On A Short Hiatus

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is telling some major stories in both its anime and manga, with the Chunin Exams promoting Sarada Uchiha to a new level and the manga currently seeing Boruto and Kawaki battling against the new head of the Kara Organization, Code. Though the television series is set to begin exploring the tale of Kawaki attempting to become an official shinobi within the ranks of the Hidden Leaf Village, it seems as though the Shonen franchise’s anime adaptation will be taking a brief hiatus at the start of the new year.

The episode in question, “A Rusted Sword,” will apparently be delayed from its original air date of January 2nd to January 9th, with the Shonen franchise revealing an official description of the upcoming installment:

“An incident has occurred where a travelling merchant has been attacked by robbers. lzuno Wasabi, Suzumeno Namida, and Kurogane Tsubaki of Team 15 have been assigned to investigate the situation. Then, Tsubaki makes a discovery – The evidence seems to be related to the Samurai from her hometown in the Iron Country. In addition, Tsubaki suddenly recognizes one of the perpetrator’s marks that were left behind.”

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations’ anime might be telling original stories for quite some time, with the Vessel Arc taking place relatively soon in the pages of its manga. With the battle against Code only just beginning in the printed page following the death of Jigen and the loss of the power of the Nine-Tailed Fox, the anime-only stories are venturing into new territory for the Hidden Leaf Village and making changes to the lore that have yet to be seen in the manga, including Sarada’s promotion and Kawaki’s journey to become an official member of Konoha’s ranks.

The Naruto sequel series has kept to a weekly schedule for quite some time, refraining from taking major breaks as many other anime series tend to do such as My Hero Academia and Dragon Ball Super, and while the reasoning for the hiatus hasn’t been revealed, the animators certainly could use a break.


Are you sad to see that Boruto will be going on a brief hiatus to start off the new year? What do you think of the stories that are being told exclusively in the anime?
