The Boruto manga sequel, titled Boruto: Two Blue Vortex, will return on August 21 with a new look at Sarada after a timeskip. The announcement was made via Twitter, revealing that Masashi Kishimoto will continue as the writer, with Mikio Ikemoto providing the artwork. The new series will replace Naruto Next Generations as the official name moving forward.
Boruto Manga Makes a Comeback
Sarada’s post-timeskip appearance has been unveiled, showing her with new earrings and a choker. Some fans speculate that her jacket may be borrowed from or inspired by Boruto. The title Two Blue Vortex is believed to reference Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki, one of the major antagonists in the Boruto manga. In the 2015 film Boruto: Naruto the Movie, Momoshiki warned Boruto that his blue eyes would one day take everything from him. Momoshiki has since played a significant role in Boruto’s life, influencing Kawaki’s decisions throughout the manga.
Boruto: Two Blue Vortex will continue where the manga left off at Chapter 80. In this storyline, Eida’s Omnipotence swaps Kawaki and Boruto’s roles, causing Boruto to leave the village with Sasuke. Only Eida, Sumire, and Sarada are aware of the truth. While fans have been waiting for the manga’s return, there have been other expansions of the Naruto universe in the form of spin-off manga. Titles such as THE UCHIHA AND THE HEAVENLY STARDUST: THE MANGA and KONOHA’S STORY—THE STEAM NINJA SCROLLS have recently been released. Additionally, a one-shot called NARUTO: THE WHORL WITHIN THE SPIRAL featured Boruto’s grandparents, Minato and Kushina Uzumaki.
There is no additional information about the return of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime. However, fans can anticipate future developments following Episode 293’s finale. Scriptwriter Masaya Honda expressed gratitude to viewers and quoted lyrics from the ending song, “See you again,” indicating a hopeful outlook for the show’s future.
Boruto – Part 2: Two Blue Vortex will be published in the V Jump Special issue on August 21.
