He's grown closer with Naruto, resulting in some of the best teamwork yet, and most importantly, he's grown closer with Sakura and Sarada. Fans are just emotional seeing Sasuke finally living a happier life, as he's finally at a place where he can focus on others more than himself.
Read on to find out what fans are saying about Sasuke, and let us know how you feel in the comments!
For those unfamiliar with Naruto, it has quite a storied history. Originally created by Masashi Kishimoto, the series ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump for 700 chapters. The story follows Naruto, a young ninja with a sealed demon within him that wishes to become the leader of his home village. The sequel, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is set several years after the events of the original Naruto story and featuring the children of many of its key characters such as Naruto and Hinata.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations recently made TV Tokyo's list of Top 5 Anime in sales and profits, coming third in sales and fifth and profits. The anime has been such a success that the Naruto franchise as a whole stills holds a top spot in many anime profits rankings as well. The series even managed to cross 235 million copies of the manga sold worldwide. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations was even given a major bump of approval as it just took over a more familiar timeslot, airing in the same time and day that its predecessor Naruto: Shippuden once did.

Probably me and hundreds of people thought about this, but I just had to draw it.

Sasuke Doin' the Good Work
Sasuke reaffirmed his belief in his pupil Boruto (his reaction is cute as well), as well as helped his daughter master her fireball jutsu, so he was able to spend much-needed time with his daughter and his wife again! And he smiled while doing so! ? pic.twitter.com/XGbjyuDWwu— Sophie Lhant (@LawlessSophie7) July 26, 2018
'It is Beautiful'
Boruto episode 66, Sasuke smiled for the first time and I realized that these long running shows are something special because when you know someone since they were 10 years old, alone, always crying, to having a family and people waiting for them at home. It is beautiful.— Chesti Mudasir Khan (@ChestiMudasir) July 27, 2018
