posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday August 19, Manga Entertainment will release the first volume of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations on Blu-ray, carrying the first 13 episodes of the series. Manga Entertainment describes this sequel to the original Naruto series:
"Meet Naruto's son! His name is Boruto and he's just like his dad - unfortunately. He's rambunctious, rebellious, and more than a handful! He's joined by the next generation of the Hidden Leaf Village - including Sarada, the daughter of Sasuke; and Mitsuki, a shinobi of mysterious lineage! Boruto and his friends have their hands full when they investigate a dangerous entity known as The Ghost. Can Boruto save the village just like dad?"
"In the land of the rising sun the horizon is darkened by a fleet of black ships from foreign soil . Just when it seems that all hope is lost ancient mecha of unknown origins appear, pushing back the black ships and forever altering the course of history. Thus, the timeline splits and a new Japan is born, one free of modernization and foreign influence.
"In this country secluded from the world, an energetic young man known as Keiichiro Tokugawa faces off with his greatest enemy- boredom. Keiichiro yearns to leave behind his life at the family bathhouse and prove himself as a real man once and for all. But can a virgin who breaks out in hives at the faintest touch of a woman really become a hero for his nation? Especially when he's surrounded by beautiful women at every turn."
ILCA's Kazuya Sasahara (Cat Shit One: The Animated Series) planned the project, and Takashi Watanabe (Shakugan no Shana, Slayers) directed it at J.C. Staff and A.C.G.T. Project-D is credited with the original story, and Dai Sato (Eureka Seven, Freedom, episodes of Cowboy Bebop) was in charge of the series scripts. Hiroya Iijima adapted Shunya Yamashita's original character designs for animation. Makoto Ishiwata of Nitroplus handled mecha designs.
Manga Entertainment will also release Black Clover Season 1 Part 4 on Blu-ray and DVD, carrying episodes 30 to 39 of the series.
Anime Limited will separately release a standard Blu-ray of Part 2 of the Re:Zero series, carrying parts 13 to 24 of the series.
