The popular manga series Boruto: Naruto’s Next Generation is scheduled for a three-month hiatus after the release of chapter 80.

Spoilers for Boruto chapter 80 have already been released, and it appears that the series might be gearing up for a potential time skip.
Boruto: Naruto’s Next Generation is a monthly manga series published in the V Jump magazine. It is believed that the series’ creator, Masashi Kishimoto, is taking this break to work on a Minato manga, which is sure to excite many fans. The decision to focus on Minato stems from a recent worldwide popularity poll on the official Naruto website, where Minato emerged as the winner. As a reward for Minato’s fans, Kishimoto will create a one-shot manga featuring the beloved character. While official details have not been announced, it is expected that this manga will delve into Minato’s backstory, providing a fresh perspective on the Naruto universe.
In related news, the anime adaptation of Boruto: Naruto Next Generation is also currently on break. The episodes released thus far have been referred to as Boruto Part 1. The good news for fans of the series is that Studio Pierrot, the animation studio behind the show, is already working on Boruto Part 2. This development ensures that Boruto will eventually return to television screens, continuing the story of Naruto’s son.
Furthermore, fans of Naruto himself have more to look forward to, as four additional anime episodes featuring the iconic character are in the pipeline. These episodes will undoubtedly be a treat for the franchise’s loyal followers.
Although the Boruto: Naruto’s Next Generation manga series is set for a three-month hiatus, fans can eagerly anticipate its return on April 20, 2023 with chapter 81, as well as new anime episodes and the special Minato manga.
