What to Watch After Naruto Shippuden?

The Naruto plot has long been a fan favorite, but what should happen next in the canon, and what to watch after Naruto Shippuden?

Even though Naruto Uzumaki has had a difficult life thus far, the restless young ninja is still on the road to recovery.

Since we last saw Naruto in the Hidden Lead Village, several years have passed, and as a result of his commitment to being the finest in the land, Naruto has acquired extraordinary talents.

The anime series Naruto Shippuden is based on the second volume of Masashi Kishimoto’s manga.

If you have seen every episode of the nearly 500-episode series, which ran from 2007 to 2017, congrats on having the same level of dedication as young Naruto.

Boruto: Naruto the movie

Hiroyuki Yamashita makes his directorial debut with the 2015 Japanese animated fantasy film Boruto: Naruto the Movie.

It is based on Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto manga and anime, and as a continuation of the manga series, it is the second movie to have a canonical Naruto plot.

Yuko Sanpei, Junko Takeuchi, Kokoro Kikuchi, and Noriaki Sugiyama are the film’s stars. The movie, which takes place after Naruto’s climactic battle, centers on Boruto Uzumaki, the protagonist’s son who is unable to stay with his family since he is the head of his ninja village.

Sasuke Uchiha, a vigilante, comes to the community with warnings about two entities that might pose a serious danger to the world peace the ninjas were able to establish in the first season.

The Last: Naruto the Movie’s post-credits scene featured a hint for the upcoming movie (2014). The Last’s narrative and character designs were handled by Kishimoto, who also played a significant part in the production.

Kishimoto, who handled the narrative, character designs, and screenplay, had an even bigger part in the creation of this movie.

This caused him problems, and as a result, he needed assistance from other team members including writer Uky Kodachi and director Yamashita. They produced fresh scenarios that really affected Kishimoto.

The movie, which was released in August 2015, became the highest-grossing entry in the franchise, and its home media releases did well enough to top the sales charts in Japan in 2016.

The film has received generally favorable reviews from critics, who have praised the animation, the combat scenes, and Boruto’s development.

However, it was criticized for having unmemorable villains and for not going into great detail about Boruto’s connection with his father.

The manga sequel Boruto: Naruto Next Generations (2016), written by Ukyo Kodachi and illustrated by Mikio Ikemoto, used the film as the first narrative arc; both the anime adaptation (in which is the seventh story arc) and the manga adaptation changed certain aspects and added new material.


Sasuke Uchiha, a ninja, engages in combat with an unnamed foe while being watched by another foe in the opening scene of the movie.

The focus of the story then shifts to Naruto Uzumaki, the main character of the Naruto series, who is now “the Seventh Hokage” and the head of the Konohagakure village.

His two children, Boruto Uzumaki and Himawari Uzumaki are the results of his marriage to Hinata Uzumaki.

Under the guidance of their teacher, Konohamaru Sarutobi, Boruto, Sarada Uchiha (Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno’s daughter), and a youngster by the name of Mitsuki (Orochimaru’s son) train to become an exceptional ninja team.

Naruto has angered Boruto by prioritizing his position as Hokage over their family.

Sasuke comes to the community to warn Naruto about the formidable foe he previously encountered.

Following Naruto’s failure to attend Himawari’s birthday, Boruto seeks out Sasuke and requests that he train him in order to outshine Naruto.

Sasuke consents, but only if Boruto uses the Rasengan move, which he later learns from Konohamaru.

Following that, Sasuke keeps his word and aids Boruto in getting ready for the forthcoming Chunin Exam, a test performed by young ninjas.

Boruto is tempted to use a prototype gadget called Kote, which saves each type of jutsu, to cheat on the test in an effort to persuade Naruto to spend more time with him.

It was handed to him by the haughty scientist Katasuke, who sought exposure for his experiment to help with marketing before Naruto rejected the idea.

Naruto discovers Boruto’s test cheating and disqualifies his son.

The two adversaries Sasuke previously met, Kinshiki Otsutsuki and Momoshiki Otsutsuki, show up and demolish the arena before Naruto exits.
