In the 38th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, Mikie Ikemoto’s Boruto manga was announced to be in this year’s Jump Special Anime Festa 2016.
Boruto is the son of Naruto, the famous protagonist of Naruto anime series. An anime feature film Boruto :Naruto The Movie was released last August of 2015 and it was no doubt the fans of Naruto had high hopes that the next generation of ninjas will continue the journey of Naruto. The movie was a two thumbs-up for me, so I was easily sold on this sequel.A sequel manga has been serialized monthly in Weekly Shonen Jump since May 2016.
The curiosity of many fans are rising to what could possibly be the screening contents of Boruto in the Jump Special Anime Festa 2016.
The speculations of the fans that Boruto will finally get its own anime series is the most talked about. And probably will be the biggest announcement to send excitement and hope for them if proven true. These speculations started rounding the internet when the advertisement on the Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine listed a “first anime adaptation” for a manga, even though they didn’t mention what it is, our votes go for Boruto.
This year’s Jump Special Anime Festa event will first take place in Tokyo’s Yomiuri Hall on November 27, and then in Sapporo’s Sapporo Cinema Frontier, Nagoya’s TOHO Cinemas Nagoya Bay City, Osaka’s TOHO Cinemas Umeda Main Building and Nanba Main Building, and Fukuoka’s TOHO Cinemas Tenjin Main Building on December 4.
Yuuki Tabata’s Black Clover, Kohei Horikoshi’s Boku no Hero Academia/My Hero Academia, Yuuto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki’s Shokugeki no Soma are also confirmed to be screened at the event. Anime fans will definitely have something big to look forward to in the event.
But since the event is still months away, we will have to wait and see if Boruto will finally have the next big step or forever stay behind his dad’s shadow. But let’s not lose hope Naruto fans, the chances for Boruto getting an anime is high but the question is, will it meet the expectations of its fans?
