Boruto Part 2 Removes Comedy Tag: A Full-On War Ahead?

Manga Plus by Shueisha, a platform providing free manga to readers, has taken a notable step by removing the “comedy” genre tag from Boruto Part 2.

This comes after Manga Plus experienced its second most viewed month, a feat achieved largely due to the return of the One Piece manga after a three-week break. Additionally, a one-shot manga based on Naruto’s father, Minato Uzumaki, contributed to this success by hitting 2 million views in just one week.

The momentum shows no sign of slowing down, as the Boruto manga is resurging quickly, even breaking the Manga Plus for a few moments when chapter 81 went live on the platform. Just a day after its release, the Boruto Part 2 title, “Boruto Two Blue Vortex,” broke into Manga Plus’s top 10 hottest manga list (currently ranked 7th).

Unlike its predecessor, “Boruto: Naruto Next Generation,” which was tagged with action, comedy, drama, and more, “Boruto Two Blue Vortex” bears tags like action, ninja, adventure, and drama.

Play Time Is Over

Manga Plus seems to be signaling to readers that the lighter, more playful times are over, and that lighthearted scenes in the manga may soon become scarce.

This shift in tone is evident when comparing Naruto’s return to Konoha after the time skip—which was filled with many light-hearted, slice-of-life moments—to Boruto’s turbulent entry into Konoha Village, where he faces a complex three-way battle with Code and Kawaki.

The decision to exclude the comedy tag from the new manga series aligns with the darker tone of the storyline, especially given the uncertainty surrounding the survival of the 7th Hokage, Naruto, who has been trapped in another dimension with most of the Shinobi world thinking that he was killed by Boruto.

Furthermore, a dramatic twist in Boruto’s life occurs when Kawaki switches places with him. It’s clear that “Boruto Two Blue Vortex” is shaping up to be much darker than “Naruto Shippuden,” and fans should brace themselves for a series that could take unexpected turns.
