Boruto Manga Creator Would Like For The Series To Be Completed Within 30 Volumes

While the original Naruto ran for 72 volumes, the creator behind it would like for its sequel series to only be half that long.

Sitting at 72 volumes, the manga version of Naruto is impressive in terms of the length of the narrative. But in a recent interview with Shonen Jump’s MANGA PLUS, the series creator Mikio Ikemoto has made it clear that he has a bit of a different goal for the Naruto sequel series Boruto – Naruto Next Generations.

While the interview covered many topics ranging from character designs and emotionality he has towards the creation process, but on that stuck out amongst fans reading the interview was about the planned length for Boruto.

― Do you have any set goal in running BORUTO series in the future?

Ikemoto: My utmost priority is to complete the entire story for BORUTO. That said, I do not want the story to sprawl out too much. As the original NARUTO series already has a whopping 72 volumes, I am hoping to complete the story within 30 volumes to keep the entire saga within a hundred volumes altogether.

With a goal to be half the span of what Naruto was, it is an admirable desire but as most creators no, can be a difficult one to keep when the power of storytelling is present.
