The Boruto Naruto Next Generations anime continues to grow in popularity since its inception in April 2017 and it’s no surprise why, as the series showcases not only the exciting new generation of ninja’s but the character progression of our much-loved Naruto Shippuden characters as adults. The series, if you’re unfamiliar, is set several years after the end of the Shinobi War, Naruto’s son Boruto is about to enter the Chûnin exams alongside Sarada Uchiha and the mysterious Mitsuki. Thus far the anime has been action-packed with original content, and the manga has been equally as exciting.
So exciting in fact, it has Naruto Shippuden and Boruto Naruto Next Generations voice actor Spike Spencer, is convinced that the Boruto series will surpass Naruto in popularity in the near future. In an exclusive interview for Nerds4Life with myself at Supanova Melbourne 2020, Spencer spoke about a few things but the comment that caught my attention the most was his confidence in the Boruto series. Spencer is the voice behind Inojin, the son of Sai and Ino, who has taken his fathers Jutsu’s and re-developed them into his own. Inojin is one of many exciting new characters that Boruto Naruto Next Generations has introduced to the ninja world, who are growing alongside our main protagonist in Boruto Uzumaki, the son of the Seventh Hokage in Naruto Uzumaki.
During the interview, Spencer also went into his roles in Naruto, as well as his passion for the Boruto franchise. In addition, Spencer also talked about his role with Dragon Ball Super and Bleach, as Bleach has been reported to be returning very soon and the Dragon Ball Super anime has been on hiatus for a couple of years now but is expected to return soon as well. However, Spencer did mention that his knowledge of the two anime’s return date was limited but was excited to be part of them again when they did return in the near future.
