This year's 20th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations television anime series will switch timeslots. The anime has been airing on Wednesdays at 5:55 p.m., but will switch to Thursdays at 7:25 p.m. The show's 54th and 55th episodes will air as normal on Wednesdays, and then the 56th episode will air the next Thursday.
A new arc that debuted this spring centers on the Chūnin Exam story that was told during the Boruto: Naruto the Movie film.
The Boruto: Naruto Next Generations television anime series premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo in April 2017. Viz Media is simulcasting the series on Hulu as it airs in Japan, with new episodes every Wednesday. Crunchyroll is also streaming the anime.
The anime is based on Ukyō Kodachi and Mikie Ikemoto's Boruto sequel manga, which launched in Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2016.
