Boruto Anime Debuts in Naruto Gaiden: The 7th Hokage and the Scarlet Spring!
Pierrot hasn't confirmed yet, but rumors [H/T Manga Helper} are already circulating about the anime adaptation of the 7th Hokage and the Scarlet Spring (Naruto Shippuden chapter 700+ 1 to 10).
For those who already read the short manga series, we all know Boruto didn't have much moment there, because it's all about Sarada and her search for her 'true mother.' Then again, it's still exciting to see what the guys in Pierrot have in store for us, when they release this particular Shippuden saga. Again, tentative release date will be Spring, which is historically the time where big anime series and manga releases pop out.
