In Jump Festa 2023 Naruto and Boruto‘s panel it was revealed that the Sasuke Retsuden Novel which is currently also airing as a manga on MangaPlus, will receive an anime adaptation in the currently ongoing Boruto anime in January 2023.
The Sasuke Retsuden arc will start from episode 282 of BORUTO on January 8 next year.
A New Key Visual was also released which focuses on Sasuke using his sharingan.
The Sasuke Story manga is based on Jun Esaka’s spinoff novel of the same name. The manga is drawn by Shingo Kimura.
The MANGA Plus app describes the story as:
Uchiha Sasuke heads for an astronomical observatory, far from the Land of Fire. There, he syncs up with Sakura, and together they dive into an undercover investigation in search of traces of the Sage of Six Paths! The two are soon drawn into a deadly conspiracy! The popular spin-off novel, now as a manga series!
The original novel was launched by Shueisha in 2019.
Along with that the Code Arc from Boruto manga will also be adapted into Boruto anime in February 2023.
All the action from chapter 55 and onward from the BORUTO manga will be animated in the anime!
Based on the manga series of the same name by Masashi Kishimoto, Naruto anime began airing on Oct 3, 2002. Produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex, the first part of Naruto anime aired from 2002 to 2007 with 220 episodes. A sequel titled Naruto: Shippuden began airing the same year, and continued till 2017 before ending.
Naruto: Shippuden aired for a total of 500 episodes.
The main story then continued, focusing on the younger generation, with Naruto’s son Boruto, playing the titular character in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
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.
An anime television series adaptation by Studio Pierrot started airing on TV Tokyo on 5 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 for Boruto.

The Anime should go on 2-3 Years of Hiatus. The Code-Arc can be complettly cover by 6-8 or 8-10 Episodes.
Then another Hell of Fillers wil start. If they make until Eida breaks up with Code and starts heading towards Konoha with Amado and Daemon, it will feel like they need 6 Months for the trip, despite using the train, since they will make an seemingly endless amount of fillers, until the Manga has more content.
If they decide to make it till the point, when Eida starts living with Daemon, Boruto and Kawaki, they will probably make a lot of non-canon Fillers, which turns the Anime into a third rate romcom Story.
It doesn’t matter, what they choose, it will be the wrong decision. The only thing, that would make sense, would be an hiatus of several years.
As the Anime did take an forced Hiatus during the pandemie, the quality of the Anime did rise, but soon afterwards it droped even lower.
The Manga and Anime are beyond saving. Even if Kishimoto would ask Toriyama (Dragon Ball), Oda (One Piece), Kohei Hirokoshi(Boku no Hero academia), Kubo Tite (Bleach), Mitsuyoshi Shimabukuro (Toriko), Matt Sophos, Richard Zangrande Gaubert, Cory Barlog (These 3 were the Story writers of GoW 2018) for their help, it couldn’t be saved, because the whole Story just doesn’t feel like a sequel, more like a failed clone of DBZ and Naruto with unused Elements of Samurai 8.
Politics would have been a better theme for the Story, since the general conditions for a new Akatsuki are still given. There are a lot of small countries who suffer because of many things.
The Otsutsuki and Cyborg Theme are so bad. Eida and Daemon, are using Shinjutsu because Amado implanted them with Cells of Shibai Otsutsuki. Come one, that isn’t very convincing. They just couldn’t finde a explanation for their Powers, to fit into the World Building and then they did one of the worst deus ex machina, in the Anime history. Eida and Daemon and their powers, feel completly like they were meant to be part of Samurai 8, but couldn’t be implemented since Kishimoto had to rush/axe Samurai 8, because it wasn’t that well recieved or popular, even through it had so many good ideas.
