How many times did the idea of ​​restoring the anime from Boruto: Naruto the next generations and then let go because of the numerous filler episodes? This guide carries the burden of summarizing the canonical episodes rather than keeping them consistent with the events of the manga.

Despite the hatred of the community, Boruto remains one of the cornerstones of TV Tokyo and the main source of income for the franchise, along with merchandising, given the manga's poor sales. If you're interested in doing a TV adaptation restore, especially due to Masashi Kishimoto's return to the script, the list of canon and filler episodes definitely follows:

  • Sequence 2 to 18: filler;
  • Episode 19 to 24: Canon;
  • Episode 25 to 38: Filler;
  • Episode 39: Canon;
  • Sequences 40 to 52: Filler;
  • Episode 53 to 66: Canon;
  • Episode 67 to 147: Filler;;
  • Episode 148 to 151: Canon;
  • Sequences 152 to 174: filler;

With No. 175 "Beyond the borders!", which is expected to be released on November 22nd, the series of filler episodes will continue for a total of only 60 canonical episodes, a strictly small number compared to the number of legends presented by Studio Pierrot. Actually, think about it." in the course of 2019 Not even a Canon episode of the manga was broadcast.
