Boruto anime has been facing a lot of criticism due to its bad filler storylines. To be honest it was better if they didn’t make the anime at all so that we did not suffer to get through these bad anime episodes. The only worthy part of anime that one should watch is the part adapted from manga like the Momoshiki Otsutsuki arc. The good news is that once again the manga is being adapted in the anime at last.
The anime will first cover the Mujina Bandits arc which consists of two manga chapters. It has been revealed that the Mujina Bandits arc will have a total of 11 episodes. Boruto Chapter 11 will be adapted in 7 episodes and chapter 12 will be adapted for the last four episodes of the arc. But that is just not it, as anime will be adding some of its own content in this arc as well like the Hozuki Castle part.
Return of Hozuki Castle in Boruto Anime
The recent anime preview has made it clear that the anime storyline of Mujina Bandits arc will contain Hozuki Castle as well. For those who do not know about Hozuki Castle, it was first introduced in a Naruto movie. This castle is located in Kusagakure and is also known as Blood Prison. It is quite big in size and stature. Also, the prisoners that are sent to this castle remain there forever until their respective village pardons them.
So, this is indeed a dangerous place to hang around. The fact that Hozuki Castle is being shown once again in the series has got me even more pumped up about this new era that Boruto anime is now entering. Shojoji is holding the kid of the daimyo from the land of fire captive and in return Shojoji wants all the prisoners of Hozuki castle to be freed. Do tell us what are your thoughts on Hozuki Castle being reintroduced in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.
