Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is the sequel to the famous manga/anime series Naruto. It emerged when Shueisha requested Naruto’s author, Masashi Kishimoto, to make a sequel manga to Naruto, but Kishimoto refused and passed on the responsibility to Mikio Ikemoto and Ukyo Kodachi.
The Boruto animated series premiered in April 2017. Episode 154 was released on April 26th before the anime had to be postponed due to concerns regarding COVID-19.
Episode 155 has been delayed for two months already. However, the anime series is soon to resume broadcast finally.
According to the 30th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, episode 155 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations will air on July 5th. Episode 156 will follow suit and air on July 12th. A tweet by @OrganicDinosaur also confirmed the news of the series resuming.
Episode 155 [Spoiler], “A Rainy Day for Mitsuki,” revolves around Mitsuki, his cat leads him to a wounded man, and he decides to be of help. On the other hand, Team 7 joins forces with the police for a mission. Who is the wounded man, and what is his intention?
Boruto Kara Arc to begin from Episode 157
[Kara Arc Spoiler] Boruto is likely to begin the Kara act starting Episode 157, which will air on July 19th. Kara is the name of a mysterious organization that is working to cultivate a Tree of God huge enough to devour all life forms on Earth.
Isshiki Otsutsuki is the founder of the group who comes to Earth in search of a better host to restore himself.
After all the filler episodes, it seems like Boruto is ready to finally move onto the main plot. We hope that the anime is able to pick up its pace and deliver us with some episodes that will make us sit on the edges of the seat.
