Is the entire Boruto anime a filler

Does the Boruto anime have a different plot than the manga?

The anime version features an original story starting with Boruto's entry into the ninja school (or "academy").

From the Anime News Network,

This year's ninth edition of Shueishas Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine announced on Monday that the TV anime Boruto: Naruto Next Generations will begin with an original story .

(Emphasis mine)

From the Japanese Wikipedia,

It's レ あ た っ っ て は 映 画 や 漫画 よ り も の 時 系列 に た ー ド 制作

Regarding the anime adaptation, it tells the earlier story from the film and manga about the ninja school featured in the anime and novel.


前述 の 通 り 原作 を 一 か ら 映像 化 す る で は な く 、 前日 編 ら 始 第 と 緋色 の 花 月 月 〜 』を 原作 と し た「 う ち は サ 第 第 第 第 第 本 く 原作者 原作者 原作者 原作者 原作者 原作者 原作者

As already mentioned, (the anime) does not start at the beginning of the manga, but starts with the previous life in the "Academy" -Bow and then goes on to "Sarada Uchiha" -Arc of Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring , then "School Trip" arc. Episode 39 goes on too Naruto Gaiden: Michita Tsuki ga Terasu Michi .

There is currently no indication of whether the anime will adapt (retell) the plot of the manga / film, although the final manga chapters sometimes refer to the anime's plot.

The manga itself begins as an adaptation of the film (see What is the difference between Boruto: Naruto Next Generation and Boruto: Naruto the Movie).

So there is no manga for the anime itself?

What is the status about six months later?

Aki Tanaka

@ Hamsteriffic updated. No indication of whether the anime will adapt the manga / movie's story.

Many Thanks. Does the manga still tell what's in the movie, or does it now have an additional story?
