Boruto’s Return: A Seasonal Shift for a Smoother Ride?

The wait for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations’ return is on everyone’s mind.

Studio Pierrot, the animation house behind the series, might have just hinted at a major change that could address fan concerns: a seasonal release format.

Boruto’s original run, spanning from 2017 to 2023, wasn’t without its bumps.

As a continuously airing series, it relied heavily on filler episodes to bridge the gap between the manga’s release schedule and the anime’s demand. This resulted in a mixed bag of content for viewers.

Here’s where things get interesting. In a recent interview, Studio Pierrot’s CEO, Muchiki Honma, acknowledged the success of seasonally-released anime like “Demon Slayer” and “Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War.”

This focus on quality over quantity seems to be influencing their future projects, including Boruto.

The appeal is clear: a seasonal Boruto would eliminate the need for filler episodes.

With each season likely consisting of 12 or 24 episodes, there would be a year-long break in between to allow the manga to develop further.

This not only ensures a steady stream of source material, but also gives the animation team ample time to deliver top-notch visuals and storytelling.

Boruto already boasts a dedicated fanbase willing to overlook its filler woes.

A seasonal format, with its focus on quality and a more consistent narrative, could elevate “Boruto: Two Blue Vortex” to new heights. The wait might be longer, but the rewards could be significant.
