Naruto has been one of the most successful anime series to ever come out of Japan. And after that, the sequel series to it, “Boruto: Next Generations” have had a similar kind of success. Fans love the older version of their favorite characters from Naruto, now living the life of parents in the sequel series. It’s like the fans grew up along with their favorite anime characters.
