The son of Naruto has managed to create a brand new world for the village of Konoha in the sequel series of the popular ninja franchise, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Joining the daughter of Sasuke and Sakura, Sarada, and the clone of Orochimaru, Mitsuki, the newest Team 7 is looking to step out of their parents' footsteps in more ways than one. With the series continuing in both anime and manga forms, one cosplayer and their friends got together and gave the world some amazing cosplay that unites Team 7 in the real world!
Twitter User SteakPresident shared these hilarious shots that show the newest incarnation of Team 7 taking some selfies in a photobooth, clearly taking a break from whatever mission that has been given to them by Boruto's father and the village of Konoha:

Boruto does a good job of continuing the theme of generations and reflecting on the events that have happened in the past. While obviously reflecting the team that came before that contained Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura, the current Team 7 is a bit closer to the older team of Konoha ninja which was made up of Jiraiya, Tsunade, and Orochimaru. Whether or not Mitsuki is destined to become evil, as the clone of Orochimaru and busting out jutsus that were similar to his "father's" on the regular, is surely something that will be explored further as the sequel series continues.
As the Boruto manga moves forward, fans are hungry for the anime to play catch up and start following the events of that story a tad closer as a number of "filler arcs" have been populating the Boruto anime series as of late.

Originally created by Masashi Kishimoto for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, Naruto follows a young ninja, with a sealed demon within him, that wishes to become the leader of his home village. The series ran for 700 chapters overall, and was adapted into an anime series by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex that ran from 2002 to 2017. The series was popular enough to warrant a sequel, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations which is set several years after the events of the original Naruto story and features the children of many of its key characters such as Naruto and Hinata.
