The official Twitter account of Boruto unveiled details about the highly anticipated 2nd part of the manga on July 20, 2023. Among the revelations was the title for the new instalment, as well as a sneak peek at Sarada’s time skip design.
Boruto part 2 will be titled ‘BORUTO: TWO BLUE VORTEX’.
Sarada’s new time skip design has taken many by surprise, as fans were expecting her to have longer hair.
This illustration also confirms fans speculation of the manga featuring a time skip.
As reported by Animehunch, Boruto manga will resume serialization on Aug 21, 2023, with chapter 81, after four month hiatus.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations manga was previously written by Ukyo Kodachi and illustrated by Mikeo Ikemoto, with Masashi Kishimoto serving as an editorial supervisor. Kishimoto later took over the writing duties from Kodachi in November 2020.
The manga began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2016 and was transferred to Shueisha’s monthly magazine, V Jump, in July 2019.
Boruto is a spin-off and a sequel to Kishimoto’s Naruto, which follows the exploits of Naruto Uzumaki’s son, Boruto Uzumaki, and his ninja team.
An anime television series adaptation started airing on TV Tokyo in April 2017. Unlike the manga, which began as a retelling of the Boruto film, the anime begins as a prequel set before Boruto and his friends become ninjas in a later story arc. A series of light novels have also been written.
