I love Naruto. I love Shippuden and the original Naruto series as well almost all fillers included. I really want Boruto to continue to keep this ninja universe going but i'm afraid we might have a 'Legends of Kora' on our hands here.

What do you think about it so far? Is it to light hearted? Is it too early to tell? Please share your thoughts.

it must say with Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime I feel it is still to early to tell if it will end up being like Legend of Kora was. Only time will tell it is only on it first season and its only got 14 episodes at this time, but Masashi Kishimoto himself is overseeing the content of the Boruto anime and Manga and I also think cause he is overseeing it that he is not going to let somebody ruin what he had worked so long and also hard on with the Naruto manga/anime show, Naruto shippuden anime and all of the movies he made for naruto and naruto shippuden.

It's really hard to say at this point. Boruto has the potential to bring new fans to the franchise but I think a lot of fans of the original series will be very disappointed in Boruto and many will give up on the series. One of the big problems I've seen with Boruto is that it's a painfully slow start. It didn't take long to get into Naruto. By the time we had seen 20 episodes we had already fallen in love with the characters and been heartbroken. We had also seen the plot begin to develop in an interesting way at that point. With Boruto, even more than 30 episodes in, I felt no attachment to any of the new characters and the hints I saw of the plot did not fascinate me the way Naruto did. It's perfectly fine for Boruto to be different from the prequel but in order to keep the fans of the prequel on board it should share some similar elements such as pacing and character development. I've given up on Boruto, at least for now. I don't get excited about the new episodes. I am bored while watching. It's quite disappointing. I've heard a Boruto manga reader say that the anime is already chalk full of filler which is probably why it's so slow. If they really wanted the fans to stick with them, they should have just waited for the source material to progress a bit further before starting the anime. This is something I've seen happen quite a few times and it always is disappointing.
