Naruto Uzumaki bid farewell to give way to "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" which was already ushered last weekend. A lot of fans of the greatest Hokage tuned in to see how Boruto continues the legacy of his father but it seems that the premiere hinted on the unfortunate end of Naruto. Fans of the iconic hero are then worried about Naruto's fate in the spinoff. Meanwhile, Boruto finds it hard to live under his father's shadow which makes him earn his first nemesis.
The premiere episode of "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" seemed to relive the younger years of Naruto but a worrying scene left a lot of fans at a shock. The first chapter saw Boruto in his already older version where he encounters the villain Kawaki. The boy is determined to destroy the ninja communities as he believes that the shinobi age already came to an end.
Boruto and Kawaki then had their conversation where the latter asks Naruto's son if he wishes to be sent to where he sent his father. This statement then had fans worrying about what happened to the seventh hokage as it seemed that Naruto was killed by Kawaki.
While most fans are likely to riot over discovering that their favorite ninja might die in "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations," some fans think that the demise might be needed to push Boruto to become disciplined as descriptions reveal that the young Uzumaki is nonchalant and resentful of his father. The question about Naruto and Sasuke's death will, of course, be answered as Boruto continues his journey until he reaches the flash forward featured in the premiere episode.
Meanwhile, the second episode of "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" titled "The Hokage's Son" will see the young Uzumaki shinobi sparking a feud with Inojin Yamanaka. The promo sees Inojin accusing Boruto of "riding on the Hokage's coat tails." Boruto, from the first episode, said that he will not follow the path of his father as he is to create his own story. Inojin's statement will touch the nerves of Boruto as he hates being compared to his father.
Inojin is a character that first appeared in "Boruto: Naruto the Movie." They got along in the flick but he is not always in favor of Boruto's cheating to become a Hokage. The second episode might then give a background on how the two started out as enemies until they later become friends. Inojin is also said to fuel Boruto's motivation so he will be pushed to try harder and not rely on his father's fame.
