It took us a year, but it’s finally happening. At San Diego Comic Con in this past weekend, Adult Swim Toonami announced that the sequel series Boruto: Naruto Generations will join Toonami on September 29th. If you don’t know what is Boruto is about, it’s a sequel to the cryptically acclaim popular Shonen Jump series Naruto. Taking place after the events of Naruto (in the anime, it takes place specifically after the anime Naruto Shippuden), Naruto is finally Hokage and all his friends are grown up and matured. Now that they are adults, some of them will be teaching a new generation of ninjas and teach them how to be the best. This also includes Boruto who is the son of Naruto, but he resents his father who is too busy being Hokage instead of being a dad.
This anime will be joining Toonami along with another September anime FLCL: Alternative.
