So I have been here for a while, but I don't post often because I enjoy reading threads. The other day I was doing my usual scroll and I came upon a thread that ended up boruto bashing and I couldn't help but feel like people today treat Boruto like people treated Sakura back in the Naruto manga's heyday, particularly when people started claiming that Boruto Uzumaki is the worst protagonist of any manga ever (clearly they hadnt read SAO [dont @ me]).

I just don't understand how people can still say that Boruto isn't a fully fleshed out character at this point in the series, just like how I didnt think Sakura deserved all the hate back in the day... except it is worse because at least I could understand disliking her for her blind love of Sasuke to a degree. Like Boruto has actually begun a very interesting character arc that is a perfect reflection of the real world's "generation Z" and a fresh look on a very vulnerable, and non-Shonen character who doesnt fall into the same troupes as many protagonists, including Naruto.

His tension with his father isn't unwarranted as it reflects the insecurities and lack of maturity befitting of a 12 year old genin in the "softest" class to graduate from the academy, as well as capturing the fear and pressure that fall on the child of a significant person, especially the son of Narujesus.

Furthermore, Boruto's feelings have been resolved in manga and anime and his will of fire was officially lit after the momoshiki encounter which are both main focuses of his character development. I could go on but I think you guys get the point.

Genuinely asking why the Boruto hate (no bashing)? Do you not recognize Boruto's impressive character arc, or do you just not care? Also, I would like to hear from any Boruto-sympathizers!:hypnotobi:

I haven't really been watching the anime, so I can't speak on it, but Boruto's character is stale. His only real problem is that Naruto's not near enough & it's honestly trivial compared to everything we've seen thus far(though it is fitting as you wrote). That aside, his personality is pretty basic. He doesn't really seem to have one beyond the desire to do good deeds and being bad tempered though the anime seems to give him a lot more personality from what I've seen.

Boruto himself isn't really the reason for his bad reception, it's how the author shafts everyone in favor of him. It's a mystery how the guy can have the spotlight to such an extent YET still manage to have so many abilities learned without even giving us a glimpse of the process.

He's the shittest main character I've come across from a successor series to a successful manga. There's nothing fleshed out about him all the grievances were raised in previous threads so I'm not going to repeat them. His existence serves no purpose past milking, he gets D ridden for the heck of it, has ass pulls on steroids, over powered plot armour and handouts.

Anyway enough of that, appreciate the BORUTO GREATNESS!!!

Salamander Sama, you need to watch episode 75 again in order to stop with this blasphemy and the one Orochimaru bows down to thy lord Uber Burrito, we all should see it again.

I woke up doubting the greatness too, it happens. I said to my gf, "Baby, i am starting to doubt Boruto Greatness", she slapped me and said "DON'T YOU DARE!!"- "HAVE YOU BEEN READING BERSERK AGAIN?SIT HERE AND BINGE WATCH GREATNESS" and made me watch 10 episodes of Boruto (Byakuya arc included).

I was then calm and felt the fresh breeze of greatness while being warm at the same time.
