Boruto’s manga is slowly picking up popularity with its recent Time Travel arc. A play to ablaze the nostalgia amongst fans and looks like they’re doing it again with the latest manga chapter of the series.
Chapter 40, titled “The Invisible Jutsu”, continues the fight to save Naruto from Jigen’s prison guarded by Boro.
