Naruto Ups Its Animation As Boruto Kickstarts Code's Arc

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is once again following its source manga by bringing the Code arc to life. While the Naruto anime adaptation sequel has been struggling with its animation, according to the anime fan community, it would seem that the new fights hitting the latest episode are turning a page. As Kawaki and Naruto grow their love-hate brotherly relationship, a battle against the new iteration of the Kara Organization is now playing out in a dynamic fashion. 

Code is gunning for the Hidden Leaf Village as Jigen's right-hand man wants revenge for the loss of his master who died in a fight against Boruto, Kawaki, and the Naruto Sasuke tag-team. In fighting against Konoha, Boruto has radically changed Kara thanks to prior members either dying or switching sides in hope of gaining amnesty in the face of recent losses. Our original Naruto characters have lost some major tools in their arsenal thanks to the death of the Nine-Tailed Fox during the Jigen battle and Sasuke losing the power of the Rinnegan at his disposal, but the next generation is looking to step up to the plate when it comes to Code's advances.

Boruto: Naruto Next Level Animation

The latest installment of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations had some dynamic new battles that saw both Boruto and Kawaki taking on the new de facto leader of the Kara Organization, with Studio Pierrot showing off their stuff in the anime adaptation of the shonen franchise. Considering the build-up to this fight following Jigen's demise, it should come as no surprise that a lot is at stake for the Ninja World here. Code might be a powerhouse in his own right, but his two new allies, Eida and Daemon, are taking the Kara Organization to a new level to boot. 

The rumor mill has been swirling that the Boruto anime will be taking a hiatus, which makes sense especially when you keep in mind that Studio Pierrot is also working on the return of the Soul Society via Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War Arc. For some time, the latest Naruto series has been releasing new episodes on a weekly schedule, often needing to create original material not found in the manga. With the Naruto characters remaining a big part of the Shonen landscape, many anime fans would understand if the series needed to take a breather following the Code arc's anime debut.
