With the massive success Naruto has achieved throughout the years, a spin-off manga entitled Boruto is scheduled to begin in May, continuing the story established by Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto, but features fresh faces led by Naruto's son. Kishimoto had been dropping hints of potential expansion of his story the past two years, starting off with the release of 10-chapter manga series 'Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage Scarlet Spring' and the movie Boruto: Naruto the Movie. Roughly two-years after the end of the main Naruto manga series, Kishimoto will be taking a step back this time to give way for his assistant Mikio Ikemoto, who will serve as the Illustrator of the series. Ukyō Kodach, the writer behind Naruto - Gaara Hiden: Sajingensō novel and screenplay writer of Boruto: Naruto the movie, will be the writer for the new manga, although Kishimoto remains at the center of this very talented team.
According to Shonen Jump, chapter of Boruto will be published on a monthly basis. In short, this is going to be more waiting time between chapters than the original Naruto series which was published weekly. Moreover, there's no assurance if this is going to be a long story. Everybody knows that it took 15 years for Kishimoto to finish his own series. But who knows, there could be a Boruto: Shippuden years by 2021.

What do you guys think? Do you think we're getting another Shippuden?

I doubt it. Kishimoto isn't even the one writing/drawing the Boruto manga. He's just supervising it since he's writing a new manga right now.. I'd love for the story of the kids to continue but I can't see the manga being that long. The first chapter is already out and right now it's just Naruto: Boruto the Movie all over again. Let's hope though!!!
Admittedly I am not hyped for this. I saw as much of the Boruto movie as I could stomach, up to the point Boruto willfully cheated in the Chuunin exams, causing Naruto to disqualify him. Boruto is EVERYTHING Naruto never was and hated. Boruto, like young Sasuke, believes he should be given everything because of who his father is, while at the same time despising his father, for trivial bullshit. Yes, Naruto could leave a horde of Kage Bunshin at the office, and he can spend time with his family, but at least he tries by sending a Bunshin in his stead. Forget the fact that his mother is ALWAYS THERE FOR HIM! The snot nosed little bastard is exactly like young Sasuke, without the monkey marbles. Sarada and the other team mate are interesting, but other than that, I found absolutely nothing interesting about the Boruto movie. Don't even get me started on Choji and Karui hooking up, when they never spoke a word to each other before the Boruto movie.
Wait that means we get to see a slightly grown up himawari also I agree with jess because he's not the one writing/drawing boruto because he's doing something else
when i came here i was fully ready to be like i hope not, but that 1st pic got me like i hope so...lol
maybe this One gonna be totally opposite thik boruto as rough ninja .
