The official website for the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime has updated the character profiles, and it seems like we will be getting original contents, as announced late last month, before diving into the Naruto Gaiden & Boruto manga’s stories. We don’t know how long this original story will last but judging from the character profiles below it seems like the story will focus more on the next generation kids’ academy days before graduating. It should be noted that Naruto chapter 700 covers a little bit on this, so the anime will be expanding on this.
Note: The translation below is not an official translation but fan one. It has a lot of grammar mistakes. So, till an official translation is released, we’re stuck with this. Beggars can’t be choosers.

Director Hiroyuki Yamashita: “Right now we are preparing this spring’s broadcast. The more we go on meetings, the more I draw and write and the more I feel it’s going to be hard to give Boruto his own identity. There are two types of viewers: the people who expect great things from Boruto and the ones who are new to the series. If they both feel they want to watch him, that would make me happy.”
Chief Director Noriyuki Abe comments: “I’ve inherited the epic tale of Naruto and the souls of its gigantic cast of characters and at the same time I awakened myself to this new era and this new protagonist’s story. This is honestly very difficult, but at the same time it’s worth the effort. I’m getting numb. The entire staff is mobilized to make this interesting and fun. You can expect great things. I will never betray my fellow Naruto fans, of course.”
