Perhaps not everyone knows, especially the less informed, that the manga of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has a spin-off parody of the main series currently in progress, made by the mangaka Kenji Taira, assistant of Masashi Kishimoto at the time of the serialization of Naruto is Naruto Shippuden.

The work in question is called Boruto SD and it is, as anticipated, a parody of the main series in which the characters are drawn with the unmistakable chibi style. And if Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is supervised directly by the master Masashi Kishimoto, the same cannot be said of Boruto SD, in which Taira has full freedom of maneuver, being able to indulge and entertain his readers.

This had led his creative mind to devise a chapter in which Boruto would meet his Uncle Neji. Taira says: "In this volume I drew the story of time travel in line with the arc aired in the anime! Actually, in the manga, I wanted to add Uncle Neji to the story. Boruto would have learned the Gentle Fist technique from him. My imagination gallops wild! ".

Obviously the initial idea, unfortunately, was eventually discarded by the mangaka who decided not to pursue the initial idea that had formed in his mind. Certainly seeing Neji again and deepening his uncle nephew relationship would have made fans happy, since the arc of the journey into the past was the only good time to give life to something like this.

We want to point out a beautiful illustration that portrays Sarada and Boruto as adults. While if you are interested in the art of ninja warfare, Ukyo Kodachi explains the shinobi formations.

Did you wish Taira would realize the idea of ​​inserting Neji? Let us know below in the comments.
