It’s more than 2 years since the anime started airing on TV Tokyo and for those who are not familiar with the anime, MAL describes Boruto as,
Following the successful end of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Konohagakure has been enjoying a period of peace, prosperity, and extraordinary technological advancement. This is all due to the efforts of the Allied Shinobi Forces and the village’s Seventh Hokage, Naruto Uzumaki. Now resembling a modern metropolis, Konohagakure has changed, particularly the life of a shinobi. Under the watchful eye of Naruto and his old comrades, a new generation of shinobi has stepped up to learn the ways of the ninja.
Boruto Uzumaki is often the center of attention as the son of the Seventh Hokage. Despite having inherited Naruto’s boisterous and stubborn demeanor, Boruto is considered a prodigy and is able to unleash his potential with the help of supportive friends and family. Unfortunately, this has only worsened his arrogance and his desire to surpass Naruto which, along with his father’s busy lifestyle, has strained their relationship. However, a sinister force brewing within the village may threaten Boruto’s carefree life.
