The light novel has been a massive hit among Japanese fans, so it is no surprise that it is getting a manga adaptation.

Story of Sasuke Retsuden

After the 4th great shinobi war ended, the Shinobi world enjoyed a long period of peace. However, the hero of the war, Naruto caught a sickness that prevented him to access his Chakra. To cure his childhood friend, Sasuke alongside Kakashi and Sakura embarked on a journey to find the cure for Naruto’s illness.

The story is filled with really cute and romantic moments between Sakura and Sasuke, so if you are a fan of a little bit of romance, you will enjoy reading the upcoming manga.

According to the official Twitter account of the Naruto/Boruto series, the new chapters won’t be released weekly, but bi-weekly, meaning two chapters each month.

Kishimoto will not draw the manga series, but a new mangaka, Shingo Kimura will be in charge of drawing. The Sasuke Retsuden light novel will be released in English on November 22 and is available to preorder on Amazon.

  1. I can’t wait!!!! I have high hopes this this is going to be closer to the Naruto series rather than Boruto. I need a fantastic story rather than loose filler that makes the og’s look ridiculous

    1. I want to immediately buy the manga, unfortunately in my country it only appeared 1-2 years later, very sad. I can’t wait to spend my money on this!!! Take all the money I have!! Since I was a child until now, I’ve grown quite a bit, seeing the amazing story of Naruto and Hinata in the last movie, I really want to see how the story between Sasuke and Sakura is, they are like legends too, just like Naruto and Hinata. Oh my gosh, I feel like I can’t stop crying after hearing this news. I can’t wait any longer!! Hurry up and come on October 23.

  2. Can’tttttt wait for SASUSAKU MOMENTS! Finally…. hopefully they won’t change the original scene especially their moments ?
