This year's ninth issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing Monday that the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations television anime will begin with an original story. The issue also unveiled a new visual for the series. The adaptation of Ukyō Kodachi and Mikie Ikemoto's Boruto manga will premiere in April on TV Tokyo.
Crunchyroll began streaming a promotional video on Twitter with English subtitles in December.
The anime stars the following returning cast members:
Yuko Sanpei as Boruto Uzumaki

Studio Pierrot will continue from Naruto Shippūden to animate the series. Naruto and Boruto manga creator Masashi Kishimoto said in December during the Jump Festa event about the new anime, "I plan to make it even better than Naruto."
