It’s been 36 weeks since Boruto started. It has been nothing less than a roller coaster, from the foreboading introduction to coup of the Hidden Mist, it’s taking routes which’ve never been explored in Naruto. Time and again instigating the fact that the show is all about Boruto. It’s now time to draw conclusions on Boruto.
- Boruto is a mere reflection of how Naruto would’ve been if there was no war. Just like Naruto, Boruto is fearless, thoughtless and a pain in the ass.
- There’s too much lovey-dovey in Boruto! 34 episodes are over and not even a single fight? By the time we reached 30 in Naruto, we had seen a battle between Rock Lee and Gaara, Sasuke and the Hidden Sound and the most memorable of them all Team 7 vs Zabuza.
- The Female characters lack the punch. Call me sexist, but if I were to compare both Naruto and Boruto, one thing absolutely visible is the lack of punch and depth in female characters. Sarada is a pure hybrid of Sasuke and Sakura, nothing more, nothing less and honestly speaking Cho-Cho is just around to not make Sarada look like she’s the only girl.
- The transformation of Sumerei was pure shit. When Choji was transformed into a badass in Naruto, it was done step by step, turning his weakness(kindness) into strengths. But the transformation of Sumerei was one click.
- Boruto should’ve been different. He’s similar to his father in the sense that he uses talk-no-jutsu!
- The main arc and the current arc are in no way related. It’s all hapazard. When Naruto came out, the plot was slowly twisted with a little humour over time. Boruto doesn’t offer, all it’s showing are pointless episodes which have very little connection to the main arc. Seriously, why even care about some dude in the mist?
- All the light is on the children of previous heroes. It would have been better if they showed more characters like Iwabe and Mitsuki rather than concentrating all their energy on the clones of previous generation.
This is my honest opinion. You are free to throw your opinions at me and I’m more than ready for a fight. But then, make sure you have enough data to back your ideas.
