Masashi Kishimoto is the original creator of the Naruto franchise. He is both the writer and illustrator of Naruto. However, when Shueisha proposed a sequel to the Naruto manga series, Masashi retired from the work.

Although Boruto was first offered to Masashi to create, he declined the offer. He proposed his long time assistant, Mikio Ikemoto, to draw the sequel. Ukyo Kodachi is the plot writer.

Masashi Kishimoto will be taking over Boruto from chapter 52. The new chapter will be published in the V Jump magazine on 21st December. Apparently, the change of author was preplanned.
