It looks like Boruto manga storywriter Ukyou Kodachi is retiring from the manga. However, Naruto creator and legendary mangaka, Masashi Kishimoto will be the one filling the void. That’s right folks, Masashi Kishimoto himself, who was previously just a consultant and supervisor for the Boruto manga, will now be taking over as writer.
According to the Naruto franchise’s Twitter page, the decision for Kishimoto to take over the manga was pre-planned. Kishimoto will begin writing for the manga with Chapter 52 of the manga, which will be coming with the December 2020 issue of V Jump magazine. Shueisha will release the issue in Japan on November 21.
As for the previous writer, Ukyou Kodachi thanked fans on Twitter, and for supporting and following Boruto.
Boruto follows the exploits of Naruto and Hinata’s son, Boruto, as well as the other shinobi of the new generation of Konohagakure ninjas. It received a long-running TV anime adaptation that is still running until now.
