I really want to watch Boruto but I feel like I would miss a lot of stuff because I don't watch Naruto or Naruto Shippuden. I do read the Naruto manga, but I'm currently on the 5th volume.

If I start watching boruto, will I miss a lot of stuff?
And should I start watching it?

So far, the only real spoilers that they've shown are:

1) Real obvious end-of-show spoilers (these shouldn't be surprising)
2) Which characters got married and had kids (so you'll know at least they don't die)

I'm about 2/3 finished with Shippuden, and I don't feel like I've shortchanged myself at all by starting Boruto. But keep in mind I don't know the plot of the Boruto manga at all.

You can watch boruto as its own show, but since you're starting the manga.. i would suggest finishing it first. I feel like it's more rewarding if you've followed naruto before starting boruto, but that may just be me Plus, the manga won't take nearly as long as it would to sit through all of the anime and filler episodes!

Other than the first episode opening in medias res, the series started pretty good. I like how they're starting Boruto strong, unlike how Naruto had to start with pretty much nothing. He's already an accomplished ninja before even being declared a genin. They've also started building his unique abilities, being the son of Naruto, the reincarnate of Ashura, the son of the Sage of Six Paths, & Hinata, a direct descendant of the brother of the Sage of Six Paths. That shouts special destiny to me.

So far, narrative wise, it reminds me of Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions, in how the story is starting to build. Looking forward to seeing how they try to reboot the Naruto Universe.
