Naruto’s Sasuke sequel gets anime adaptation and official release date

Upcoming episodes of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generation anime will adapt Sasuke’s Story, a light novel that was recently adapted into a manga.

Naruto fans will see more of one of the show’s fan-favorite original characters, as Sasuke will soon be in the spotlight. Sasuke Retsuden – also known by the translated name Sasuke’s story Uchiha and the Heavenly Stardust – will be adapted. The series was recently translated and serialized by VIZ Media, but fans will soon have a new way to experience the story.

On Twitter, Shonen leaks shared the news about the upcoming adaptation. Sasuke’s story will be adapted and integrated into Boruto. Episodes involving this storyline will begin airing on January 8. Sasuke’s story was originally published in 2019 as a light novel written by Jun Esaka with illustrations by Kishimoto. This summer, the light novel – along with two others – was translated and published in English. This year, the story has also been adapted into manga form by Shingo Kimura. It is currently serialized with Shonen Jump. Fans won’t have to wait long to see the titular hero go on another adventure with his wife, Sakura.

So far, the series has been fairly well received since it has only released four chapters on the Shonen Jump app for its manga adaptation. This story features Sasuke and Sakura as a husband-wife duo. Sasuke must find a cure for a disease that Naruto suffers from. He begins trying to retrace the steps of the Sage of the Six Paths, who is known to have suffered from a similar illness. Along the way, the pair will face new battles, including dinosaurs – which have already caught the attention of fans given the lack of the prehistoric creatures’ presence in Naruto’s world up to this point. Considering the trials the two faced when they got together, longtime fans of the Sakura and Sasuke pairing will have a lot to look forward to. Sakura will also get a chance to shine in this new story, giving her a lot more screen time – if the anime arc stays mostly true to the light novel and manga.

Sasuke can give Naruto a better sequel than Boruto

Although it has its fans, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has so far failed to give many fans the same sense of connection to it as its predecessor. The series ebbs and flows when it comes to reader interest and has thrown many new concepts into the world of the story. Technology has played a much bigger role than ever before. In addition, there has been criticism of characters from Naruto are handled poorly compared to their original iterations. However, reception to Sasuke Retsuden has been much hotter, thanks in part to the fact that it followed two important characters from Naruto.

The most curious thing about this particular adaptation with regard to anime is that it takes place sometime before Boruto. The series is already up to around 279 episodes, so this could possibly be a flashback arc. It will be interesting to see how it is incorporated in relation to current events happening in the series. Naruto fans can watch the anime adaptation of Sasuke’s story Sasuke Retsuden – when the arc starts airing on January 8, 2023.
