Is Boruto, Naruto’s son, getting his own series soon? Read on to know details about it.

Masashi Kishimoto, the original manga creator sat down during the New York Comic Con 2015 after the release of “Boruto: Naruto the Movie” and talked about his plans after the series that ended in November 2014. He revealed that he was surprised at the massive success of the movie and had not even thought that the movie will not make it until today.

Success came as a surprise for Kishimoto when “Boruto: Naruto the Movie” became the highest grossing installment in the whole franchise with $5.46 million earnings just within 3 days after it premiered. The movie is about Naruto’s son, Boruto, who perceives Naruto as a bad father.

“Naruto” has captured the hearts of many who have grown with him and now because the film was successful, fans are rooting for Boruto’s own series.

However, Kishimoto doesn’t reveal any details about making a series about Boruto. On the other hand, he is busy working on a new sci-fi series as he told Anime News Network, “I’m thinking of writing a science-fiction work. I’ve already finalised the character designs. I think the protagonist is one that hasn’t been seen before in manga, and while it’s me saying it, I think that the character is done very well.”

He also said that this upcoming project may not be a weekly series like “Naruto” since he needs to get his good health back after working on “Naruto” for 15 years.

Still, he promised a new upcoming series that will surpass “Naruto.” “I want to think once more about the difference between what I want to write and what readers are looking for when reading my works.”

“I started thinking about this by writing ‘Naruto’ and various one-shots. ‘Naruto’ became an unexpected hit, but I want to make my next work a hit as well by actually aiming to do so,” Masashi Kishimoto added.
