First Sarada received the spotlight in the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime through adaptation of the Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring manga (which was written by Naruto’s original creator, Masashi Kishimoto). Now, the anime will adapt the manga story of Boruto and Sarada’s fellow team member – Mitsuki! Released in April 2016, Naruto Gaiden: The Road Illuminated by the Full Moon is a one-shot, forty-something page manga. It will be covered in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations episode 39 later this month. It’s unclear if the entire chapter will be covered in one episode or if it will extend out to other episodes as we only know what’s to come in Boruto: Naruto Next Generation until the end of the year. Whatever the case, exciting adventures await in the anime, take a look at the Boruto: Naruto Next Generation schedule below!
