With the defeat of Isshiki Otsutsuki, the anime series of Boruto: Naruto the next generations produced by Studio Pierrot is immersed in a series of original sagas that have allowed Masashi Kishimoto and Mikio Ikemoto to continue serialization without haste. Could the anime return to adapt the manga in July?

According to a report published in the pages of the latest volume of V-Jump, the original saga of The Great Battle of the Land of Water is nearing its climax. Both the ninja of the village of mist and the pirates of the Funato clan, who have been fighting each other for several weeks, have suffered heavy losses and are ready to end the conflict for good.

Due to the war, Boruto has lost his dear friend Kagura and more. That large number of deaths provoked, Boruto leads to personal growth that takes viewers back to Naruto Shippuden's Pain Arc. As the son of the Hokage, he intends to end the war and bring peace between the two factions.

As we anticipated in the June Boruto episode spoilers, the current original anime saga continues through episode 255. The adventure in the land of water continues until June 26th. After that it will be once new storyline, which, however, can hardly adapt the events of the manga. We're much more likely to see another unreleased mini-saga or two, only to be thrown headlong into battle with the Kara Organization.
