VIZ Media has announced that Boruto: Naruto Next Generations will debut on Hulu today as part of a simulcasting deal. The anime is also slated to begin airing in Japan today as well!  A press release from VIZ was sent to us pertaining to the simulcast. VIZ has also acquired the license to the anime and will distribute it at some point in the future. VIZ is already distributing the first volume of the manga as well as the Boruto movie; both of which are available now.


VIZ Media invites audiences to catch the premiere of BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS in a special simulcast on Hulu on April 5th, the same day the series premieres in Japan.

The new series focuses on the adventures of the son of the celebrated ninja. Episodes of BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS will be available to stream at: hulu.com/boruto. New subtitled episodes will premiere weekly on Wednesdays.

As the series opens, the life of the shinobi is beginning to change. Boruto Uzumaki, son of Seventh Hokage Naruto Uzumaki, has enrolled in the Ninja Academy to learn the ways of the ninja. Now, as a series of mysterious events unfolds, Boruto’s story is about to begin!

VIZ Media plans to create an English dub for the series’ episodes that will feature the talented voice cast highlighted in BORUTO: NARUTO THE MOVIE, including Amanda Miller in the lead role of Boruto, Cherami Leigh as Sarada, the daughter of Sasuke from the original NARUTO series, and Robbie Daymond as the mysterious shinobi, Mitsuki.

VIZ Media further invites fans to dive into the action in the home media edition of BORUTO: NARUTO THE MOVIE, which is available now on Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and also as a Standard Edition DVD. The anime feature film adventure is based on the smash hit NARUTO anime and manga series created by Masashi Kishimoto and depicts the rebellious son of the legendary ninja who seeks to become an even greater ninja.
