The official Twitter account of Boruto revealed a new autumn illustration on Nov 23, 2022, featuring Kakashi Hatake, Might Guy, Anko Mitarashi, Iruka-Sensei, Mirai Sarutobi, Hanabi Hyuga, Konohamaru, and Shino Aburame.
The Shinobi gang can be seen enjoying a leisurely tea time, amidst their busy schedule, as a part of Labor Thanksgiving Day in Japan.
A toy Kura-ama along with Naruto’s jacket is also featured in the illustration.
Labor Thanksgiving Day is an annual public holiday in Japan celebrated on Nov 23 of each year, unless that day falls on a Sunday, in which case the holiday is moved to Monday. The law establishing the holiday cites it as an occasion to respect labor, to celebrate production, and citizens give each other thanks.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is a Japanese manga series written by Ukyo Kodachi and Masashi Kishimoto, and illustrated by Mikio Ikemoto. It began monthly serialization with Kodachi as writer and Kishimoto as editorial supervisor in Shueisha’s shonen manga magazine, Weekly Shonen Jump, in May 2016. It was then transferred to Shueisha’s monthly magazine, V Jump, in July 2019.
In November 2020 Kodachi stepped down, and Kishimoto reportedly took over the writing duties.
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.
