Character profiles:

Boruto UZUMAKI (CV: Yuko Sanpei)

The main character. Son of Naruto, Hokage VII and Hinata Hyuga. Reminiscent of Naruto when he was of his age, mischievous and childish Boruto is a near dropout at Ninja Academy. Boruto cannot contain his inferiority complex to his father and often acts rebellious.

Sarada UCHIHA (CV: Kokoro Kikuchi)

Sasuke and Sakura’s daughter who has already awakened her Sharingan’s powers. She adores Naruto. Straightforward and strong-willed, Sarada’s dream is to become a Hokage. Her attitude toward Sasuke is confrontational as he tends to be away from home on extraordinary missions.

Mitsuki (CV: Ryuichi Kijima)

A transfer student who forms a three-man cell with Boruto and Sarada. Mitsuki always keeps his calm and rarely shows his feelings. Due to his poker face, nobody can really tell what is on his mind.

Naruto UZUMAKI (CV: Junko Takeuchi)

Father of Boruto and The Seventh Hokage of the Village Hidden in the Leaves. Though he was an underdog ninja in his childhood, Naruto climbed the ladder to the top with enormous efforts and passion.
