Although controversial, the anime has a large following!
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations began airing in April 2017, with the proposal to continue the Naruto story of the Son of the Seventh Hokage. Since then, the anime has received a lot of criticism from fans due to its characters, burdens, and how it portrays the former heroes and villains of this universe, as well as the vast presence of elements. aliens and science fiction in the narrative. However, despite all this, audiences remain well invested in the story of the youngest Uzumaki which is one of the most popular anime in the world.
Crunchyroll posted an infographic on CBR, showing how very high Boruto’s popularity remains, even with a lot of competition in the anime world. The series is the most viewed in Asia, among all the continents of the globe, being the most popular anime in countries like China, India, Mongolia, South Korea, Thailand and Indonesia. Worldwide, Boruto is the most watched anime in 32 countries.
In Asia alone, this is the third most popular anime, just behind Jujutsu Kaisen and Black Clover. However, the study made available by the streaming platform only takes into account popularity by country, and not the gross population that consumes the anime. In this way, Boruto conquers an even bigger space as it is so popular in densely populated countries like India and China.
Through these graphics, we can see how high the popularity of the series remains, even though many Naruto and Naruto Shippuden fans are still complaining about the creative scripting decisions and the narrative execution. With that in mind, we can stipulate that the anime will continue for several years, following the formula of its predecessors and showing how the Uzumaki clan came to make their mark in the world.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations already has 180 additional episodes and can be watched on Crunchyroll. Currently, the anime is adapting the Arc Vessel from the manga, bringing several twists and turns in the lives of Boruto and Team 7. We know that the next chapters will be very electrifying, with conflicts and battles that are long overdue.
