The Spirits of Light sealed the wizards’ power within the Shadow Crystal and banished them to the Twilight Realm beyond the Mirror of Twilight.

BORUTO AND DRAGON BALL SUPER FCBD 2017 SAMPLER
A special Silver Level Sponsor sampler featuring excerpts from two of manga’s most revered properties.
In BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS (rated ‘T’ for Teens), Naruto was a young shinobi with an incorrigible knack for mischief. He achieved his dream to become the greatest ninja in his village, and now his face sits atop the Hokage monument. But this is not his story… A new generation of ninja are ready to take the stage, led by Naruto’s own son, Boruto! Don’t miss this action-packed excerpt!
In DRAGON BALL SUPER (rated ‘T’ for Teens), ever since Goku became Earth’s greatest hero and gathered the seven Dragon Balls to defeat the evil Boo, his life on Earth has grown a little dull. But new threats loom overhead, and Goku and his friends will have to defend the planet once again in this continuation of Akira Toriyama’s best-selling series, DRAGON BALL!
