It"s also put up to lớn extremely high standards, as Naruto was one of the most popular and considerably well-written shounen manga of its time. Although sometimes Boruto lớn falls short of expectations, sometimes it has surpassed them as well. Here are 5 ways some may say it"s lived up to lớn its legacy, & 5 it has not.

For one, a lot of fans still bởi not like or can lượt thích Boruto lớn as a character because of his attitude toward certain things, which makes certain stories feel meaningless if one doesn"t like the character as a person.

Despite some stating Saradomain authority should have sầu been the main character instead of Borutoーthat would have made an interesting storyーthe character dynamics in Boruto compared to Naruto match well.

In the original Naruto lớn, the main characters all are built off of clichesーNarulớn is the stupid shounen protagonist, Sasuke is his rival, & Sakura is a tsundere with a crush in the beginning. However, as time went on, the characters developed. In Boruto lớn, it"s flipped entirelyーBoruto & Sarada actually get along, as they are childhood friends, & Mitsuki is the outsider who talks to them occasionally.

7 Hasn"t Lived Up To Them: Slow Pacing

One of the biggest complaints in Naruto was how much they panned for air time by creating an endless amount of fillers.

However, in Borukhổng lồ, the problem is even worse. The manga is monthly instead of weekly, which means there are even more arcs filled with filler than there is an actual plot from the manga.

After watching Naruto train from being the weakest ninja in the Hidden Leaf Village to lớn arguably the strongest ninja in the world, it"s hard lớn pass hyên off in Boruto as being "too old" lớn fight. This goes for Sasuke và Sakura as wellーwhen the three of them managed to lớn seal Kaguya, which is basically the God of the ninja world herself.

This is even more confusing as khổng lồ when Kakashi gave sầu the children of the Hidden Leaf Village the bell thử nghiệm and he was still a badass. Where does that leave Naruto lớn & Sasuke, who are always leveled down to make room for the new protagonist, Boruto?

Despite Boruto not having the same màn chơi of threat as it did in Naruto where war was always a hair"s breadth away, there are still plenty of villains lớn go around.

This is probably one of the most damaging and disrespectful things for Naruto fans. Despite not every single character in the Konoha 11 getting enough page or screen time, fans at least remembered và knew who was whoーfrom even Roông chồng Lee khổng lồ Ino.

Despite not knowing everything about them, fans knew Roông chồng Lee had no chakra so he focused on taijutsu, and Ino ran a flower siêu thị with her family & inherited Mind-Transfer Jutsu.

Some of the Boruto fights are even short and still manage khổng lồ be epic and well animatedーlượt thích Konohamura và Team 7 battling Jugo.

1 Hasn"t Lived Up To Them: Storytelling

The elephant in the room is what saddens a lot of Naruto fansーthe story. Naruto"s story wasn"t perfect, but at least it was enough lớn have fans still follow it, laugh, cry, and have sầu fun watching it. In Borulớn, a lot of things have sầu changed, and that"s alrightーor at least it would be if it was a more coherent plot.
