The Hidden Leaf Village has entered an era of peace and modernity. Tall buildings line the streets, giant screens flash with images, and the Thunder Rail runs through the village, connecting each district together. Though it's still a ninja village, the number of civilians has increased and the life of the shinobi is beginning to change.
Boruto Uzumaki, son of Seventh Hokage Naruto Uzumaki, has enrolled in the Ninja Academy to learn the ways of the ninja. The other students are ready to dismiss him as "just the son of the Hokage,” but Boruto’s heart and character blow all their assumptions away.
As a series of mysterious events begins to unfold, it’s up to Boruto and his new friends to handle them. Like a gale-force wind, Boruto makes his own way into everyone's hearts; his story is about to begin!!
Prior to entering the Ninja Academy, Boruto meets a boy named Denki, who is being forced to join the academy for the sake of his father's company.
After being suspended for the uproar he caused at the entrance ceremony, Boruto makes his way to the academy for the first time. His classmates ostracize him for being the son of the Seventh Hokage and for being suspended. Iwabe Yuino, one of Boruto's classmates, picks a fight with him. Iwabe is an older student who has a keen sense for battle, but was held back a year for his bad behavior. At first, Boruto ignores him no matter what he says. But when he sees Iwabe punch Denki for telling him to stop, Boruto can't ignore him any longer.
Boruto's classmate, Metal Lee, is very dilligent and is skilled at taijutsu. Unfortunately, he gets nervous easily and is unable to do his best when people are watching him. One day one of his classmates, Shikadai Nara, says something that enrages Metal, who attacks Shikadai the next day. Caught in the middle, Boruto notices that Metal's chakra is warped, just like Denki's.
At the suggestion of Shino Aburame, their homeroom teacher, Boruto and his classmates split off into gendered teams to capture flags placed on the roof. Boruto and the rest of the boys' team quickly head for the roof, but they struggle with traps and the girls' team, led by Sarada Uchiha and Chocho Akimichi. Desperate to capture a flag before the girls' team, Boruto tries out a Summoning Jutsu, but he ends up summoning something unexpected!
A student named Mitsuki has transferred into Boruto's class from Hidden Sound Village. He overwhelms Iwabe in sparring and shows his genius by solving difficult problems. However, Boruto and the others are unable to tell what he is thinking. Meanwhile, someone who has been doing repair work on the school suddenly goes berserk. Boruto and the others rush over. Another side of Mitsuki emerges as he starts muttering strange words.
Boruto, Shikadai and Mitsuki arrive at the location they are told to go to by Shino. They notice their teacher is acting different than he usually does— and Shino suddenly attacks them! Shino belongs to the Aburame clan, a clan of Insect Users. He unleashes a swarm of Parasitic Insects. Boruto and the others can't match the skill of someone who's a jonin. But even in this situation, Mitsuki remains calm and coldly stares at Shino.
Cho-Cho's scared because she thinks she's being watched by someone, so she decides to catch them in the act. She succeeds in snagging Magire Kakuremino, and it turns out he wasn't watching Cho-Cho, but Sumire, the class rep, whom he secretly likes. Cho-Cho urges him to declare his love, and at first Magire hesitates. But he takes the leap and tells Sumire how he feels!
The shadowy, warped chakra that only Boruto can see takes over more people, causing them to rampage. It only affected people within the Academy at first, but now it’s extending its reach into the village. Can it be stopped? And later, a Visual Jutsu places Boruto within a dream—and afterward, Boruto declares the dream has awakened his Byakugan, the Kekkei Genkai unique to his mother’s Hyuga Clan. Naruto does not believe him, so Boruto seeks advice from his grandfather, Hiashi Hyuga.
Under his father and grandfather’s guidance, Boruto spars with his aunt Hanabi. Boruto has sought this match in order to win acceptance from his father, but no matter how hard he tries, he can’t activate his Byakugan in any form. He begins to doubt that he even saw the shadowy warped chakra at all, and feels even worse when people begin to think he lied. But then Boruto sees another person being manipulated by the mysterious shadow
Boruto nicknames the mysterious shadow “The Ghost” and is excited when he and his friends Shikadai and Mitsuki decide to solve the recent “Ghost Incidents.” Shino secretly lends Boruto a helping hand by giving their class an assignment to research different workplaces. Meanwhile, Sai, who once served in The Foundation of the ANBU Black Ops, makes a big discovery while investigating the same incident under orders from the Hokate.
During a tour of workplaces for their school assignment, Sumire, Wasabi Izuno and Namida Suzumeno get wrapped up in the Ghost Incident and are hurt. Boruto feels bad that he wasn't there to prevent their harm, and becomes more determined to solve the case. With the help of Tayori Kuroyagi the postal worker, along with Shikadai and Mitsuki, the team scans the village more closely. Then Shikadai and Mitsuki realize one possibility from something Boruto says casually.
The Ghost incidents suddenly come to an end and Boruto and his classmates are puzzled, but Mitsuki seems to know something they don't. Mitsuki himself realizes he's been undergoing some puzzling changes and questions his classmates in order to figure out his predicament. Soon after, a mysterious chakra begins to spread throughout the village.
After Mitsuki reveals more information about the Ghost incidents, Boruto is determined to find and stop the culprit! Meanwhile, Seventh Hokage Naruto and his top advisors are shocked to learn who the perpetrator is from the results of Sai's investigation. Just then, Nue—an enormous otherworldly beast—appears! The imminent danger to the village forces the Sixth Hokage, Kakashi, out of retirement!
The late Danzo Shimura was the founder and leader of the Foundation, an elite branch of the ANBU Black Ops. The recent incidents have been masterminded by someone who had sworn to carry on Danzo's wishes. Boruto is able to enter another world with his strange "eye." The perpetrator wields the Gozu Tennou, a weapon that relies on the power of the beast Nue, and is set on destroying the village. Boruto desperately tries to dissuade them, but can Boruto's thoughts unleash a curse from the past?!
The ghost incident that threatened the Hidden Leaf Village is over, and now Boruto is unable to awaken the mysterious power he used. Things return to normal in the village and the Academy, but one thing still troubles Boruto and his classmates...
[Filler] Exam day is fast approaching, and everyone at the Academy begins preparing for them. Repeating a grade is a possibility if you fail a test. Denki, who lacks skills in ninjutsu, is having a hard time using chakra to climb walls. And as usual, Iwabe can't wrap his head around what he's studying. Boruto and the others try to help them train and study, but end up making things more confusing for the two. Will Denki and Iwabe avoid being held back?
[Filler] Sarada agrees to return a teddy bear to a young patient at the hospital, but she forgets it on the train and goes into a panic. Despite having dismissed Boruto and the boys for sitting on the roof of the train, Sarada does exactly that in her desperate search for the toy. Cho-Cho happens to see Sarada and takes her to the station’s lost and found. Sarada retrieves her package and all is well, until…
[Filler] The Uzumaki household is thrown into chaos when Himawari, Boruto's younger sister, catches a cold. Naruto rarely comes home since he became Hokage, and Boruto's anger toward him grows especially because his sister is so sick.
Boruto pulls a prank and is pursued around the village by Naruto. Seeing this, Sarada can't help but be exasperated, but a part of her grows wistful as she thinks of her father, Sasuke, whom she hasn't seen since she was a baby. She begins to feel doubt after she sees a photo of Sasuke with a young woman wearing glasses. Sarada becomes determined to learn the truth. Will the secret of Sarada Uchiha's birth be revealed?!
Sasuke sends a message to Naruto about a man possessing the Sharingan. Upon receiving the intel, Naruto rushes to meet with Sasuke. Meanwhile, Sarada, who has doubts about who her real mother is, joins Cho-Cho, who is about to set out on a journey to find her “real parents.” Upon learning that Naruto is on his way to meet Sasuke, they go after him. But danger looms when they come under attack.
Sarada arrives at the tower where her father is, only to be hurt by Sasuke's surprising words and actions. Naruto and Cho-Cho can hardly bear to watch the awkward exchange between father and daughter, and try to think of something to help. But the party is attacked by a father-son duo who call themselves "Shin Uchiha," and who possess the Sharingan! Meanwhile, Sakura learns that Sarada has gone to meet her father.
Sarada is in shock after Sakura is captured by Shin's jutsu. Even Naruto, with his exceptional tracking skills, is unable to locate her. Then Sasuke discovers countless Sharingan embedded in Shin's arm. Following clues gleaned from Shin's arm, they come upon the laboratory of the heinous Hidden Leaf criminal, Orochimaru, who has been conducting research on Forbidden Jutsu. There, Sarada meets her father's former partners Suigetsu Hozuki and Jugo. She then asks Suigetsu to look into who her real mother is.
Determined to rescue Sakura, Sarada pursues Shin with Sasuke, Naruto, and Cho-Cho. After brutal battles with Shin's clones along the way, Sarada is surprised to see the bond of trust between Sasuke and Sakura, who haven’t seen each other in years. But suddenly, Shin orders his children to kill the intruders. Since her parents share a bond of trust and love, will Sarada's journey to learn the secret of her birth reach a conclusion?
The Hidden Leaf Village is filled with excitement upon the arrival of the Kage for the Five Kage Summit. Boruto knows that security is tighter than usual, but he still plans on pulling a big prank. Meanwhile, Sarada has found a new goal, to become the Hokage, and trains hard. Behind closed doors, the Five Kage discuss highly classified intel that Sasuke has obtained involving Kaguya Otsutsuki.
Boruto and his class head to the Water country, towards Village of the Hidden Mist, for a field trip. Guided by Kagura Karatachi, Boruto and his friends couldn’t believe that a village that is so overflowing with life and modern used to be called the Village of the Bloody Mist, and that children were made to battle each other to the death back then. However, there are ninjas in the Hidden Mist that are unhappy with the current situation of the village too.
Boruto and his friends are being led through the Village of the Hidden Mist by Kagura and the 6th Mizukage, Chojuro, visiting their Academy. The Hidden Mist have increased their attention on sword techniques, and Boruto, seeing this intense view of the lesson, becomes excited. He then requests a bout with Kagura from Chojuro.
Tsurushi Hachiya had been with Kagura throughout the Academy years, and now he finds Boruto a nuisance, and attempts to draw Boruto and his friends out by abducting Denki. In an attempt to save Denki, Boruto and his friends join Kagura, and head towards Hachiya, and battle with a large group of allies that had been gathered against them. During that time, a truth that Kagura had been hiding comes to light.
Kagura makes up his mind to accept the famed sword Hiramekarei from Chojuro, but unwittingly becomes part of a plot set up by Kagura’s old acquaintance, Shizuma Hoshigaki, a man who opposes the new, peaceful shinobi order.
Kagura unlocks the storeroom to let Shizuma take the Mist Blades. The New Seven Ninja Swordsmen begin an insurrection, the end goal being to turn their village back into the Blood Mist Village! News of the rebellion reaches Chojuro and Mei, the current and previous Mizukage. They are determined to execute the perpetrators, along with Kagura, who aided them. In order to change Chojuro's mind, Boruto makes an astonishing announcement.
Chojuro leads Boruto and Sarada to the location where Shizuma and his "New Seven Shinobi Swordsmen" are based. Shizuma uses his jutsu to create a fog that clouds the trio's vision, and they end up getting separated. Sarada is forced into one-on-one combat with a kunoichi, Buntan Kurosuki, who wields the Lightning Blade, Kiba the Fang! In the thick fog, Sarada uses her Sharingan, but her enemy is stronger than expected. Driven into a corner, she comes up with a counterattack. Meanwhile, Boruto goes up against none other than Kagura.
Boruto urges his friend Kagura to return with him, but Kagura rejects him and begins to attack. Although Boruto is desperate to save him, Kagura once again falls under a spell and is unable to defy Shizuma. Then someone steps in between the two as they battle. It's Mitsuki, and he has obtained intel about the rebellion. Just what is the intel, and can Boruto save his friend?
[Filler] The field trip comes to an end, and Boruto and his friends prepare to return to Hidden Leaf. Chojuro, the Mizukage, sees them off, but Kagura is nowhere to be seen. The class makes it back to the Leaf Village safely and Boruto is relieved to be home. But Himawari isn't her usual cheerful self. She's been looking forward to the souvenir that Boruto promised her, which he completely forgot to get! Boruto decides to tell the truth and beg for Himawari's forgiveness, but he misses his chance, and things gets worse!
[Filler] Inojin has loved to draw since he was small, and his ninjutsu speciality is the Super Beast Scroll. But one day, he suddenly loses his ability to use his jutsu! Puzzled, he talks to his father, Sai, who uses the same jutsu. Even though Sai is sympathetic, he doesn't give Inojin a way to overcome his slump. Instead he suggests that his son enter into a children's art contest, which Inojin halfheartedly does.
[Filler] Boruto and his classmates decide to go camping to try to catch the mysterious fish, the Eternal Carp, said to be unforgettably delicious. With graduation coming up this could be the last time the class does something together, so Boruto figures this is the perfect opportunity to catch one, but the fish proves to be very elusive.
Prior to the graduation exams, it's decided that the students will take part in a three-person interview to discuss their future plans. Boruto, who has passed his ninjutsu courses with flying colors, realizes his path toward becoming a "ninja" has been trouble-free and easy. As the students prepare for their finals, Boruto meets a journalist named Sukea who is doing a story on them. Something about Boruto's indifferent attitude about his future as a ninja raises a red flag in Sukea, and he gives Boruto a warning.
It is time for the graduation exams. Boruto and the others complete the first-round written exam and move on to the next. The second round has the students facing off against Kakashi—the previous Sixth Hokage—and the academy instructors in actual combat situations. With the goal to "steal the bell" from Kakashi, every student rushes into action. However, the going is rough against Kakashi and the teachers who guard him. Somehow, Boruto reaches Kakashi first, but the Sixth Hokage shows no mercy. After a tough fight, he coldly tells Boruto that he's not suited to become a ninja!
Boruto was the first to challenge the graduation exam’s proctor Kakashi, after being the first to arrive at his location, however, he is easily held down. Furthermore, Kakashi criticized not only Boruto himself, but also all his classmates, leading Boruto to become extremely frustrated. Boruto’s classmates arrive, and manage to free Boruto through a combined effort, allowing him to escape from Kakashi. Boruto is uncharacteristically depressed, so his classmates do their best to restore his spirits. Finding himself again, Boruto proposes a strategy to everyone.
Boruto and his friends are successful in becoming apprentice ninja, ‘Genin’, their first step. Firstly, they must form their basic teams to carry out missions in, a three man cell. Boruto expected to group up with his close friend Shikadai; however, Shikadai is forming a cell with Inojin and Chocho, following in their parents’ footsteps of the ‘Inoshikacho’ trio. Boruto then becomes grouped with Sarada and Mitsuki…….
Mitsuki was originally from another village, the Village of the Hidden Sound. But since meeting with Boruto and the others, Mitsuki has decided that he will now remain at the Village of the Hidden Leaf and become a ninja. In the past, Mitsuki has had his memory taken away from him, and had lost his identity, along with what he wants to achieve in life, only to awaken in an unfamiliar laboratory. The mystery that surrounds Mitsuki, and the plethora of thoughts that surround him, has now cleared up for him.
Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki have come together and formed ‘Team 7’. The three, led by Jonin Sarutobi Konohamaru, have received their first mission. The mission details the repelling of bandits who have been attacking a village, and making it so that they never come back again. Boruto and the others immediately depart for the village, and come face-to-face with a young woman named Kiri, who is the daughter of the village chief who had suddenly passed away and has inherited her father’s role, and the others who support her.
Ninja who were disguised as bandits have kidnapped Kiri. As Genin, Boruto and the others are not originally meant to be given missions that involve fighting other ninja. However, due to the pleading of the village and through Konohamaru’s judgement, Team 7 now has their mission changed from “Repelling Bandits” to “Rescue Kiri”.
Boruto is dissatisfied with the team's easy and lackluster missions since its first one. Team 7 is assigned to capture a suspect who has barricaded himself inside a bank. Excited to show off his skills again, Boruto and the team rush to the site. But the suspect turns out to be a timid individual who was recently fired. A possibility soon arises that a certain organization could be involved!
An incident occurs in Hidden Leaf Village and the Byakuya Gang is suspected. The gang steals from the rich to give to the poor, and they've been active recently in several villages. Boruto disapproves of them, because he believes stealing is stealing no matter how noble the reason.
The Byakuya Gang's activities become more brazen in the Hidden Leaf. While some people view them as heroic, noble thieves, Boruto can't get himself to approve of their actions. The genin are told to work together to capture the gang, and security in the village is increased. During this time, Shikadai meets a youth named Ryugi. Despite their age difference, a bond grows between them.
Shikadai became friends with Ryogi through playing shogi. However, recently Ryogi hasn’t been showing up at the usual meeting spot. Shikadai can’t stop worrying about Ryogi’s puzzling attitude on the last day he saw him, but he has no way to ascertain Ryogi’s true feelings. Meanwhile, Ryogi is plagued by a memory he can never forget.
Spurred on by the Byakuyadan, people are now protesting the Kaminarimon Company, which is owned by Denki’s father. The village’s ninjas are summoned to quell the chaos, and each team is assigned a different protest location. Shikadai, Inojin, and Chocho (Team 10) go to their positions, but Shikadai, noticing something strange on the map, slips away from his post.
The Byakuyadan raid Scientific Ninja Weapons researcher Katasuke Tono’s lab. Shikadai and Boruto corner the escaping thieves who robbed the scientific ninja weapons that were under development. However…
[Filler] Team 5 receives orders to participate in a documentary promoting the ninja academy; team captain Udon has doubts about the idea, and his pupils feel pressured to prove themselves after being suspended during the Byakuya Gang incident.
[Filler] Boruto’s aunt, Hyuga Hanabi, is in charge of Team 15, consisting of the three girls Sumire, Wasabi, and Namida. Team 15 has been given the mission to “capture all the animals that have escaped the nature park, after someone had opened the cages”. Although the three are chosen for the mission, Wasabi and Namida begin arguing.
[Filler] The Chunin Selection Examination is held for promising genin from all Hidden Villages to gather and have their qualifications identified. In the Village of the Hidden Leaf, the ex-Ebisu team of Konohamaru, Udon, and Kazamatsuri Moegi are discussing between themselves the eligibility of the teams that they lead, shortly before the exam itself.
After Boruto hears some passing words about the young genin being with his father, and the fact that his father also wasn’t present at his birthday celebration, he feels more and more angry and lonely. During this time, Boruto and his team, Team 7, receive the mission to “capture the party of train theives who are hiding out in a town near the border of the Land of Fire”.
Team 7 enters the mine where the thieves had been hiding out, only to be attacked by a powerful, strange-looking White Zetsu. They find out the mine connects to a ruin belonging to Kaguya Otsutsuki. Team 7 decides to investigate and engage the White Zetsu. As they proceed deeper and deeper into the mine, they make a shocking discovery!
In contrast to his classmates who have shown the desire to take the Chunin Examination, Boruto’s refusal of the exam confuses everyone. During this time, Boruto’s family is celebrating Himawari’s birthday by having the whole family together for the first time in a long while. Boruto is grateful that his father Naruto is keeping his promise of “celebrating Himawari’s birthday together”, however……. That night, the Uzumaki family is visited by a guest.
Boruto’s anger at his father for ruining his sister’s birthday drives him to head to Naruto to directly talk to him. On the way, he comes across Sasuke. Fuelled by his anger, Boruto attacks Sasuke, only to be subdued in an instant. Having experienced Sasuke’s strength firsthand, Boruto asks to be taken in as his student…….
Boruto’s training as Sasuke’s student begins. But all Boruto has on his mind is to get the better of Naruto, so as soon as his training hits a slight bump, he would immediately seek a solution from Sasuke. Also, to show his strength to his father, Boruto decides to take the Chunin Examination. During that time, the Jinchuriki Killer Bee is assaulted by a member of the Otsutsuki clan, Momoshiki, who has appeared from a different dimension.
The Chunin Examinations are finally beginning, and to that end genin from a multitude of villages are gathering at the Village of the Hidden Leaf. Each of the genin from the different villages are sizing one another up, taunting one another, resulting in high tensions. Finally, the First Test of the Chunin Examination begins.
For the Second Examination of the Chunin Examinations, the teams of three will be playing a game of “Capture the Flag”. While Sarada and Mitsuki infiltrate enemy territory to grab their flag, Boruto has taken on the role of defending their own flag by himself. However Boruto is caught in a pinch as he get attacked by the three Senka brothers of the Village Hidden in the Mist.
Finally it’s time for the Third Examination. From here on it’s individual battles, and the examinees get to display the fruits of their training in a tournament style battle. The tournament rounds are displayed, and Boruto’s first opponent is Yurui of the Hidden Cloud, Shikadai’s is up against Yodo of the Hidden Sand, who is always listening to music on her earphones, however….
Chocho VS Shinki of the Hidden Sand. Facing Shinki who possesses the cool and eeriness of someone who can hardly be thought of as a Genin, Chocho give it her all in a rare moment. On the other hand, Boruto and Shikadai who both won their first round battle await their approaching clash. The close friend who up until now have worked together in all types of situations, and overcame desperate scenarios will battle each other in earnest!
The tournament has come to its grand finale. The match between Sarada VS Araya of the Hidden Sand has begun. Sarada assaults relentlessly with her specialty of shuriken attacks and Sharingan. However, Araya is able to dodge those attacks without even moving, and forces Sarada into a corner. In the match between Mitsuki and Shinki, the two of them have conserved their strength in preparation for an epic showdown between them.
The final battle of the tournament begins with Boruto, Sarada and Shinki participating in a battle royale. As the lone representative remaining from the Hidden Sand, Shinki is determined to preserve the pride of the Sand, and goes on the offensive against Boruto and Sarada. Boruto and Sarada team up to fight Shinki, but he puts up an impenetrable defense. Sarada falls, and Boruto's chakra is nearly exhausted, but he refuses to give up!
Spontaneously, the Ōtsutsuki clan’s Momoshiki, Kinshiki and Urashiki appears in the tournament arena. Facing Momoshiki who is after Boruto’s father Naruto, Boruto fires technique after technique at Momoshiki using the scientific ninja tool to no avail, as they are all absorbed by the Rinnegan on Momoshiki’s palm. On the other side, Kazekage Gaara and Mizukage Chōjūrō stands before Mitsuki, who is being targeted by Urashiki.
Naruto has disappeared, after fighting with all his power to protect his people from the Ōtsutsuki clan who appeared from the alternate dimension. Standing in the village where the Ōtsutsuki clan has now gone from, after experiencing his father’s strong will to protect his people and his own powerlessness, Boruto feels that he completely understands his father’s words of “you are unfit to be a ninja”. Sasuke, as his teacher, imparts him a few words. Thereafter, Sasuke tells Boruto, who has grown a little as a ‘shinobi’, about a certain mission.
To avenge the assault from Momoshiki, and to save his father who has been kidnapped, Boruto, Sasuke and the Kage, who are the leaders of the villages, head to the alternate dimension. Against the almighty power of Momoshiki and Kinshiki of the Ōtsutsuki clan, Sasuke and the Kages engage in fierce combat with them. In the midst of all that, Boruto and Naruto are finally able to face each other, having always avoided this situation in the past. However to this father-son duo, Momoshiki declares some mysterious words.
While Boruto is watching on, Naruto and Sasuke begin their battle against Momoshiki, who has attained further power. As the two heroes who defeated Kaguya who was also from the Otsutsuki clan in the past, Naruto and Sasuke demonstrate their tremendous power to overwhelm Momoshiki. However, the intrusion of an unexpected party disrupts the situation. Naruto and the others are cornered in a desperate situation. Boruto is then entrusted to enact a crucial strategy by his master, Sasuke.
The ninja from the various villages who had gathered for the Chunin Examinations begin their road home, and life in the village gradually returns to normal. Boruto, who broke the rules in the Chunin Examination, made his apologies to everyone, and is now concerned about Momoshiki’s statement of “from henceforth you will be shouldering a cruel destiny”. What will Boruto make of this statement through all of his experience until now?
Akamichi Chocho of the Inoshikacho trio has a well rounded body type and loves delicious food. In saying that, due to her age she starts wanting a handsome boyfriend, and so begins to look after her figure. During that time, Team 10 of the InoShikaCho trio and Team 7 with Boruto and friends are tasked to protect the main actor of a popular television drama, Tomaru, and his in-show girlfriend Ashina, together. Boruto gathers to hear about the details of the mission, and sees a pretty young lady he had never seen before.
Team 7 and Team 10 are visiting the filming location of the drama for their mission when they are attacked by ninja wearing gas masks, and an actress has been injured. The main actor Tomaru has specified a person to stand in for the actress, and that person is Chocho……!? Tomaru has taken an interest in the slimmed down Chocho, and Tomaru’s attitude and has Chocho over the moon.
The main actor of a television drama Tomaru has been kidnapped by the ninjas who appeared previously during a shoot, and they are demanding a ransom. Chocho is extremely concerned about Tomaru, and is angry at Tomaru’s bodyguards, Jonin Konohamaru and Moegi, for being unable to prevent this from happening despite being there. The female lead Ashina has been chosen to be the one to pay the ransom by the kidnappers, but among all this, Boruto and Shikadai can’t help but feel that something is off about this whole situation.
Metal has begun training to study the ultimate Taijutsu technique, the “Eight Gates”, from his father Rock Lee. To prevent himself from losing his nerves and failing at the training, Metal sought out an item that can calm his nerves. But for some reason the item has no effect, and is told by his father to stop the training. At this time, Metal meets his father’s mentor, Might Guy, who fought in the Fourth Great Ninja War, and faced off against the mastermind of the war together with Kakashi.
The first Five Kage Summit since the Otsutsuki clan’s invasion is being held in the Village of the Hidden Leaf, and the past Kages are also gathering. However the third Tsuchikage Ohnoki who was meant to come has not appeared, and the meeting has begun without him. Around this time Boruto and rest of Team 7 are attending a meeting with other ninjas in regards to security during the summit. But Boruto is bored by this unexciting mission, and is completely disinterested. Mitsuki then poses a certain question to his teammates of Team 7.
The ninjas who were guarding the entrance to Village of the Hidden Leaf have been attacked by someone, and Mitsuki has vanished. The unknowing Boruto and Sarada visit Mitsuki’s house, where he lives by himself, to pass on a message that a mission that was planned for them has suddenly been cancelled. Having not met him, they grow concerned and begin looking for him. On the way, they meet the Jonin of the village, who have been summoned by the Hokage, and enquires as to what is going on.
Boruto and Sarada have snuck out of Konohagakure to go look for Mitsuki despite the village being on high alert. Seeking clues on Mitsuki’s whereabouts, the two head toward the lab of his so-called “parent”, Orochimaru. Boruto manages to catch the guards off guard and sneak through the entrance into the lab. Upon seeing what lay within, together with what he heard from Orochimaru, Boruto realizes that he actually doesn’t know anything about Mitsuki. Around this time, the village figures out that Boruto and Sarada are missing, so Shikadai and the rest of Team 10 are entrusted with the task of tracking them down.
Seeking clues on Mitsuki’s whereabouts, Boruto and Sarada decide to go to Ryuchi Cave, home to the White Snake Sage that Orochimaru spoke of. Unfortunately, they have no clue where Ryuchi Cave is located. To make matters worse, Team 10 (lead by Moegi) block their path in order to bring them back by any means necessary. Boruto and Sarada manage to shake them off, but can the two really make it all the way to the White Snake Sage?
Seeking clues on Mitsuki’s whereabouts, Boruto and Sarada decide to go to Ryuchi Cave, home to the White Snake Sage that Orochimaru spoke of. Unfortunately, they have no clue where Ryuchi Cave is located. To make matters worse, Team 10 (lead by Moegi) block their path in order to bring them back by any means necessary. Boruto and Sarada manage to shake them off, but can the two really make it all the way to the White Snake Sage?
The White Snake Sage tells Boruto and Sarada to acquire scales called “Gekirin” from the wild serpent Garaga. As they travel through Ryuchi Cave to get the Gekirin, an enormous snake appears before them. This snake was in fact Garaga, but Boruto and Sarada find themselves in a tough spot, overwhelmed by its size and ferocity. Meanwhile, Moegi from Team 10 reports back to Konohagakure. From her report, it seem that somebody who acquired knowledge of the village’s top-secret information may be related to Mitsuki’s disappearance.
Determined to get their hands on the Gekirin via whatever means necessary, Boruto teams up with the others to try and corner Garaga. But Garaga’s ability to accurately detect the location of his opponents and the ability to change them into stone forces Boruto into a hard battle. Amidst the battle, Boruto and his friends recall a strangeness in Garaga’s movement and form a strategy according to that, and are finally able to corner Garaga. Then, Boruto raises a certain proposal to Garaga.
Mitsuki is taken by Hidden Stone Ninjas, Kokuyō, Sekiei and others. Yokuyō* (Kokuyō) and the others are heading towards their home country, the Land of Earth. On the other side, after receiving the information from the White Snake Sage using his power that Mitsuki is headed towards the Land of Earth, Boruto and his group are also advancing towards the Land of Earth.
On the road to Boruto and his group, searching for Mitsuki, there is Kokuyō. Kokuyō has enough strength to be able to defeat the Jonin that the Hidden Leaf Village sent to look for Mitsuki and bring Boruto and the others back. With the appearance of a helper, somehow they are able to repel Kokuyō and can finally have their desired meeting with Mitsuki, but...!?
Mitsuki refuses to return to the village with Boruto and the others, and instead wish to continue on with Kokuyō’s group. During this, Sekiei’s become more ill, and his condition also worsens. In order to help the suffering Sekiei, Kokuyō heads in the direction of their comrades, and during this time Sekiei says to Mitsuki “I want you to teach me about humans”. Around this time, Kurotsuchi, the Fourth Tsuchikage, is looking after her grandfather, Ōnoki, who’s health is in shambles, when she is attacked by a group of unidentified people.
Unable to bring Mitsuki back with them, Boruto, who sustained injuries, retreats with Sarada, Shikadai and the others, and takes cover. However, being close to the borders of other countries means that they may be attacked at any moment. For safety, Inojin and Chocho decide to investigate their surroundings. During that time, Inojin becomes attached to a strange being that is “born” of the earth. Around that time, the unconscious Boruto witnesses a dream in his hazy stupor.
Leaving behind Inojin in the case of an emergency situation, Boruto and the rest aim towards The Village Hidden in the Stones (Iwagakure). They decide to rely on the former Tsuchikage, Ohnoki, who they met at the Five Kage meeting. As they look for where Ohnoki is, Boruto and his friends are spotted by a certain character as they are infiltrating into the village. On the other hand, after being unable to make contact with the scout team that was sent to The Village Hidden in the Stones, the leading Jonin of Team 7, Konohamaru is sent after them.
After Boruto and his friends finally arrive at Ohnoki’s place. For some reason he is refusing to help them. Not only that, they are suddenly attacked by “Akuta” group and someone called “Kuu” and got split up, so they all decide to head towards the meeting areas individually. Around then, Mitsuki, who is at Hidden Stone ninja Kokuyou’s hideout, is welcomed as a “friend” by another Hidden Stone ninja, Sekiei.
Boruto and friends are all heading to the meeting point where Inojin is waiting for them, separately. However, Boruto, who through a course of events is accompanying Ohnoki towards the meeting point, accidentally wanders into a training ground where the Hidden Stone’s ninjas have set up a barrier.
To release himself from the barrier, Boruto desperately searches for the Heart of Stone, but is still unable to locate it. At that point, a member of the Genbu sannin-shu (Genbu Shinobi Trio), Sekki, a genin who came for the Chunin Examinations the other day, appears. Sekki is also here at the training ground for his own Heart of Stone, but is also having trouble finding it. The two cooperate with Ohnoki, and continues the search.
Together, Boruto and Ōnoki, the elder Tsuchikage, manage to escape the barrier surrounding Sanzu Plains. Ōnoki then brings Boruto to a place that bears special meaning to him. There, he tells Boruto about his hopes for the future, a topic he’d been pondering ever since he lost his grandson Kozuchi. Meanwhile in Iwagakure, Kū, the creator of synthetic humans, tries to take over Iwagakure in order to realize his plans before time is up.
Kakou, a synthetic human alongside Kokuyou and Sekiei, appears before Boruto and Ōnoki with orders from Kū to capture Ōnoki. Boruto and Kakou engage in battle, though Boruto finds himself struggling, as Kakou was designed for the sole purpose of fighting and was capable of Dust Release ninjutsu. At the same time, Shikadai manages to slip past the Akuta that guard Iwagakure in order to deliver news of Iwagakure’s situation to Konohagakure.
Boruto and Ōnoki have been captured and are brought back to the center of Iwagakure. However, with Iwagakure under Kū’s total control, the village underwent a complete transformation. Ōnoki, at a loss for words, tries to reprimand Kū, but Kū refuses to obey him and orders Kokuyou and another artificial human Kirara to attack them. And the one who comes to save them from mortal peril is none other than Shikadai.
After separating from Shikadai and the others, standing in front of Boruto and Sarada is Kirara, who is a Fabrication (synthetic human) created by Kuu. Kirara, who is skilled in genjutsu, made the two into puppets that move according to her will, and pitted them against each other in a fight for their lives. On the other hand, shut in a room by Kuu and the others is Ohnoki, who is thinking about how the current situation in the village is different to what he imagined, and the words that Boruto has said to him many times, and reflecting on the things that he has committed.
After suddenly being attacks by Mitsuki, who he brought from the Village of the Hidden leaf and taking massive damage, Kuu escapes. Chasing after Kuu, Boruto and Sarada is blocked by Kirara. On the other end, Sekiei, who witnessed what has been going on and believed that Mitsuki is his friend is stunned by Mitsuki’s actions, and becomes confused, and attacks Mitsuki. Mitsuki does not want to fight Sekiei, and tries to stop Sekiei, however Sekiei completely shuts Mitsuki out.
Kuu appears once again in front of Boruto and his friends. Kuu ridicules Boruto, who will believe in Mitsuki no matter what happens, and provokes Boruto into attacking him, who is however stopped by someone. At that time, Ohnoki relies on the help of a Hidden Stone Ninja, Sekki, and is trying to reach Kuu by any means. Also, after reaffirming his own true will and vision, Ohnoki is prepared to fight Kuu to the death in order to stop Kuu’s rampage.
Boruto and the other Leaf Genin return to the Hidden Leaf with Mitsuki. However, Mitsuki is detained and subjected to hours of interrogation. And since Boruto and the others have taken actions that would normally banish them from the village, it is decided that they will lose their genin qualification as punishment
The Hidden Leaf established Parent and Child Day to allow busy parents to spend a day off with their children. Boruto and his sister Himawari await the day with anticipation. The day arrives, and Boruto is happy that his father was able to finish work and come home, so he decides to let Naruto spend all of his time with Himawari.
There’s a special event for “Family Day” : A huge eating competition! Chouji and Chou – Chou participate in a huge eating competition as a family! However, the sponsors of contest have a certain trick prepared for them!?
The village is bustling with people due to the ‘Family Day’ events. Sasuke encounters Boruto, who’s been strolling along. When he hears about the new ‘Family Day’ holiday from Boruto, he reminisces about his childhood. Sasuke then sets off to spend it together with Sarada. Even though Sasuke is trying to make his daughter happy, Sarada just feels embarrassed about him. Meanwhile, someone appears in front of Sasuke to suggest some help: It’s his former sensei, Kakashi!
Namida from Team 15 uses an earsplitting cry that can temporarily paralyze or knock out an opponent, but she’s unable to fully control this special jutsu. When she panics, the jutsu can affect everyone nearby, even her allies. Worried that she’ll become a hindrance to missions, Namida decides to stop crying to prevent the jutsu from accidentally activating.
The Nara clan’s chief elder tells Shikadai to quit being a ninja and become a politician in order to increase the reputation of the clan. Shikadai is hesitant, but considers his father’s position and accepts. Boruto and the others are surprised by Shikadai’s sudden decision. Shikadai takes a hiatus from ninja missions and decides to study to become a politician.
In a village on the outskirts of the Fire country, there’s been an incident where the villagers have been getting attacked by birds that have become ferocious. Boruto and his comrades from Team 7, and Sumire and her comrades from Team 15, will be jointly doing a mission to ‘Investigate and Resolve the Damage from the Wildlife’. And so, they immediately head over to the village upon invitation from their collaborator, Tosaka the ornithologist. However, they encounter a bizarre appearance of a monster.
Boruto and Sarada confirm Juugo’s appearance. However, Juugo is under the influence of a ‘Cursed Seal’, and has transformed into a ferocious monster. The ‘Cursed Seal’ is one of Orochimaru’s research materials. Even though it amplifies strength and stimulates that attack instincts of living beings, Juugo is someone who possessed that capability from birth. Juugo has lost control over himself and begins to attack, putting up a difficult fight against Boruto and his comrades. Even though he’ll be getting assistance from his friends, will they cause damage to Juugo somehow?!
The cause is still unknown, but they are successively discovering birds that are under control of the power of the cursed seal. Boruto and his comrades from Team 7 are with Tosaka: They are running around together with Juugo, who can absorb the power of cursed seals. Boruto and his comrades continue to rescue the birds by using tranquilizers, so that Juugo and them won’t be controlled by the cursed seal again. However, an incident occurs where they lose all of their tranquilizers.
Just like Boruto and his comrades, an investigational team from the River country is studying the birds who have become ferocious due to the cursed seal. Juugo was captured by them. In order to not increase the damages due to the cursed seal beyond what’s already happened, Boruto and his comrades say that Juugo’s power is still necessary. Despite appealing to the investigational team from the River country, they are treated with contempt.
Boruto and his comrades are trying to interfere with the plans to use the cursed seal’s power. Even though Boruto and Suigetsu are headed over to Jyuugo’s location, they get ensnared by a trap and get put in a tough position! On the other hand, Sarada and Karin employ diversionary tactics to battle their enemy. In addition, Wasabi and Namida have gotten separated from Boruto and his comrades. They get rescued by Sumire, but an enemy that she had fought against just a few days ago has reappeared in front of her! In order to protect the two of them, Sumire battles alongside Nue.
Jyuugo is suffering from the effects of the drug that activates the power of the cursed seals. Somehow or another. Boruto and Suigetsu want to try to save him, but they are rendered unable to move because of being injected with a tranquillizer. Meanwhile, it’s time for the migratory birds to set off. The birds that are harbouring the power of the cursed seal are getting ready to turn away and fly off to various places. Even though Boruto and his comrades are trying to hurry, there’s just too many of them. And then finally, Jyuugo transforms into a complete monster.
Boruto and his comrades of Team 7 are helping out on an arrest of an unidentified jewel theif. However, while in the midst of tracking down the thief, they almost completely lose sight of the criminal. But then, a cat appears in front of their eyes there. It’s still so small, and the cat seems to be in a frightened state. After thinking it over for a bit, Team 7 member Mitsuki decides to raise and keep the cat. At first, Mitsuki doesn’t know what to do. However, he eventually gives it a name and starts to take care of it in various ways.
Mitsuki is complaining about the worsening of his body, and turns up at Orochimaru’s research laboratory. Orochimaru and Mitsuki’s sibling, Log, hear stories from Mitsuki in order to figure out the root cause of his worsening condition. According to Mitsuki’s stories, whenever he used to fall asleep, he never had a ‘Dream’. But lately, it seems as though he has started to ‘Dream’ quite often. After hearing the discussion, Orochimaru considers something: The experiences up until now seem to have left some sort of impression upon Mitsuki’s heart and mind. Moreover, those influences appear to have even affected his body and health…!?
Mirai is the cousin of jounin Konohamaru Sarutobi. She will be guarding the Rokudaime Sixth Hokage, Kakashi, and his friend and rival, Might Gai, as they head to the hot springs. Just like her mother, Kurenai, and her deceased father, Asuma, she became a ninja. In the midst of such a peaceful world, Mirai doesn’t think there will be many occasions to play an active role. However, the Nanadaime, Seventh Hokage, Naruto, especially appointed her for this mission. The ones whom she is guarding are considered to be ‘Heroes’ of the village. She guessed that it was an important mission that merely feigning as a leisurely trip for it’s outward appearance. During this mission, Mirai is going to try and put forth her best efforts to succeed as a ‘Ninja’.
Mirai and her comrades have finally arrived to the Hot Spring District, which is on the official border between the Fire Country and the Hot Springs Country. In this Hot Spring District, they are about to hold the ‘Dog-Cat Festival’ otherwise practiced and known as the ‘Cat-Dog Festival’. It’s a gathering of both dog-lovers and cat-lovers. Amongst the festival goers are the ninja-dog user, Kiba Inuzuka and his lover Tamaki, the cat-user. They’re quarrelling over some insignificant thing. But before they know it, everyone in the entire Hot Spring District becomes increasingly enveloped into a conflict.
A few days have elapsed since the new guard mission initially began. Gai’s former student, Tenten, has come to deliver some luggage all the way to the inn to Mirai. They cure their fatigue in the hot springs together. But suddenly, Gai starts to boisterously exclaim, “There’s a ghost!” Mirai is surprised there’s been an incident in the guest room according to Kakashi. Despite this seemly odd event, Gai is shaking in fear while Kakashi and Tenten are amusing themselves with it. But at any rate, Mirai doesn’t believe there’s any reason for ghosts to exist. She tries to expose it’s true form and starts to investigate.
In the midst of the mission, Mirai happens to meet a young girl, Tatsumi, who is travelling around the hot springs in order to hold a memorial service for her deceased mother. Mirai, Kakashi and Gai decide that she’ll travel along side them. They are headed towards a village that has a so-called ‘Secret Hot Springs’. However, the main part of the secret hot springs recently became blocked by a huge, fallen rock. The villagers don’t know what to do about it, but Mirai wants to help them. Even though they’re shinobi, there’s nothing that can be done; They fully realize that they’re powerless to do anything about it on their own. But then, someone appears who will fix it?!
Tatsumi suddenly tells Mirai that ‘There’s a hot springs where you can meet the dead’. Tatsumi’s motive for her journey wasn’t for a memorial service at all: It was to venture to the hot springs so that she could meet with her deceased mother once again. Seeing Tatsumi trying to get to her destination all along was very emotionally moving to Mirai. So even though they were en-route for a mission, Mirai wants to head over to the hot springs together with her to try and meet with the deceased.
What is the reason for Ryuuki targeting Mirai?! Mirai is sheltering suspicion against Ryuuki for an alleged domain of a jutsu that can relive the dead. She exposes the lies of Ryuuki. Ryuuki is a fan of the “Faith Of Jashin” that was linked to Asuma’s fate. Ryuuki tries to take the life of Mirai, who is a descendant of Asuma, orchestrating an attack using Tatsumi. Mirai doesn’t want to hurt Tatsumi, but she doesn’t know what to do.
As Hokage and leader of konohagakure, Naruto spends his time every day very busy along with his advisor, Shikamaru. They were perplexed overall with some things: Chaos during the Otsutsuki clan attack, the result of the Chunin Exams became quite vague. They thought everyone was trying to participate in the exams. And so, they don’t seem to reach a conclusion on who could be promoted to Chunin.
Sasuke appears before them, who has been looking for the traces of the Otsutsuki clan.
Boruto, Shikadai, Yuino, lwabe and lzuno Wasabi were gathered in a temporary team. The mission that was given to them is this: There is a rare “Flower” that only blooms for a short period of time. Collect it and bring it back. Even if the mission has been planned to be simple and conclude fairly quickly, the members ended up doing other things, Such as starting arguments with each other – childish things. Because of that, their progress didn’t go well. Meanwhile, they were worried that a nefarious person could appear to kidnap the rare plant. Will the members of this temporary team will safely fulfill the mission?
More commonly known as “Gemaki” – is themed around famous “Shinobi” of each successive generation.
It is currently a very popular card game. Boruto and his friends are getting more and more anxious to collect the cards.
Meanwhile, Boruto and his friends realize that there were many people not recognized, but influential, who still needed to be transformed into cards.
These included their former teacher, Aburame Shino, and Metal’s dad, Rock Lee.
However, it seems that only a shinobi candidate between them can be selected to be placed in the next letter.
And so, there is a dispute about which one should be chosen. A climate battle unfolds among those who support the Shino faction and the Rock Lee faction.
Kakashi goes to the post office—disguised as Sukea, a freelance journalist—to observe Team 25, whose mission is to assist with sorting mail. Houki Taketori, Hako Kuroi, and Renga Kokubou are genin and Boruto's former classmates. As a team, they haven't distinguished themselves, so the missions they are assigned to always consist of simple tasks. Furthermore, they lack teamwork. To find the reason for this, Kakashi decides to talk to Houki, who for some reason dresses just like him.
One day, Boruto and Konohamaru rescue Remon Yoimura from an attack. Remon says she has come to Hidden Leaf Village for sightseeing. Boruto and Konohamaru offer to show her around the Leaf and provide some protection as well.
Boruto and Konohamaru pay a visit to Remon's village, but are puzzled by Remon's cold demeanor. It turns out that Remon is a descendant of the Souma, a family that has protected the village from goblins for many generations. Thus, she is not allowed to leave the village freely. Furthermore, an important ritual is to be held shortly, so Kankitsu Akitsuki, Remon's childhood friend, imprisons her to prevent her from seeing anyone.
Konohamaru tries to rescue Remon by checking up on Kankitsu, but he is caught and forcibly taken back to the Leaf Village. Boruto becomes suspicious when he sees Kankitsu alone and acting as if nothing has happened. He decides to investigate the situation, only to be shocked by the sight that unfolds before him! Meanwhile, Konohamaru is disciplined by the Hokage after receiving a complaint from Remon's village.
Konohamaru and Boruto set out again to rescue Remon but find they’ve arrived a little late. Soma has broken the seal and begins his resurrection. Boruto and Konohamaru try desperately to stop this, but none of their weapons and ninjutsu work against him. Watching them, Remon is inspired to carry out her vow and employ the method her ancestor used long ago to seal the monster.
Due to Sasuke’s frequent absences from the village, he hasn’t had time to train Boruto. When Sasuke sends a message home, Boruto takes a peek at its contents and learns that Sasuke will be making a stop at a certain location in the Land of Wind. Determined to be trained by his mentor, he sneaks out of the village.
Boruto manages to reach Sasuke, but he sees his mentor disappear before his very eyes due to an attack by Urashiki Otsutsuki. It turns out that Sasuke, along with the Kazekage and Shinki, was in the middle of battling Urashiki, who was pursuing Shukaku, the One Tail. Gaara uses a Sealing Jutsu and manages to stop Urashiki, but he believes it’s only a matter of time before the jutsu is broken. He orders Shinki and Boruto to go to the Leaf Village to keep Shukaku safe.
Boruto and Shinki continue on toward the Hidden Leaf Village to fulfill the mission entrusted to them. But Urashiki suddenly appears. Working together, Boruto and Shinki manage to slip away from Urashiki, but escaping him completely proves to be difficult.
Boruto and Shinki bring Shukaku to Hidden Leaf Village. Upon arriving at the Uzumaki home, Himawari is completely taken with him, but Shukaku finds the entire situation irritating. When told about the day Naruto became the Seventh Hokage—and how Himawari hurt Naruto and Kurama—Shukaku comes up with an idea.
Boruto has a keen interest in Naruto's mentor, Jiraiya! In addition to being his father's mentor, Jiraiya was also one of the Three Legendary Sannin. One day he talked about this with Sarada while visiting the Uchiha residence. After a conversation with Boruto, Sarada looks for Jiraiya's book to learn about his personality, but then?!…
Urashiki Ōtsutsuki attacks the Hidden Leaf Village. Konoha Genins have been tasked with protecting the Seventh Hokage; Naruto Uzumaki, however, Boruto is the only one who doesn't get permission for this mission! So Sasuke lends a helping hand?!
