Shueisha's MANGA Plus website published an interview with manga creator Mikio Ikemoto on Wednesday where he stated that he hopes to finish the Boruto manga within 30 volumes. He said that he hopes to keep "the entire saga" (including the 72-volume Naruto manga) within 100 volumes.
Ukyō Kodachi and Ikemoto launched the Boruto sequel manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2016. Shueisha published the manga's seventh volume on February 4. The manga inspired a television anime series titled Boruto: Naruto Next Generations that premiered in April 2017, and is ongoing. Viz Media is publishing the manga in English, and is also simulcasting the anime on Hulu and Crunchyroll.
Masashi Kishimoto launched the original Naruto manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, and ended the series in November 2014. The manga has 140 million copies printed in Japan, and 95 million copies printed outside of Japan.
