There is no doubt that the universal launch of "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" brought great success to the filmmakers and producers. The breakthrough not only augmented their income at a large scale but also had a tremendous inspiration for another spin-off.

The man behind the Japanese manga series "Naruto," Masashi Kishimoto, had initially said that he would not pen another "Naruto" title but supervise the process.

There are increased rumors online that claim the manga titled "Boruto" will be released this year under total supervision of Kishimoto. Fans of the series will be excited to see the manga that will entirely focus on "Boruto" with a new generation of Konoha ninjas, according to Shonen Jump.

However, the manga is reported to have been penned by Kishimoto's assistant, Mikio Ikemoto. In the same way Naruto has passed leadership to his son Boruto in the film, Kishimoto has given his magic stick to his successor.

Ikemoto has worked closely with Kishimoto in the previous series. As a result, it is rational for him to take full responsibility of the upcoming manga. On the other hand, Ukyo Kodachi will join Ikemoto to collaborate with him and create the upcoming spin-off. Kodachi has gained experience by writing other "Naruto materials in past including the novel titled "Naruto - Gaara Hiden: Sajingens."

Kodachi is as well reputable for coordinating the screenplay of the recent hit blockbuster movie, "Boruto: Naruto the Movie."

Now the issue is slowly changing to be very interesting since it will entirely depend on the new scriptwriters and the way they brainstorm to depict Boruto's character. The recent movie, "Boruto: Naruto the Movie," does not see Boruto seeking or demanding for the same things that his father did when he was a child.

While Boruto is perceived a prodigy, his character's fighting technique is similar to that of his father.

Previously in a preview of "Boruto: Naruto the Movie," actress Yuko Sanpei said that she would love to see more movies in the Naruto franchise, Anime News Network reported. However, Masashi Kishimoto responded saying, "I can't. Please let me rest now."

Kishimoto added, "During this time, I finally went on my honeymoon. Even though my son has grown as big as Boruto."
