Yesterday episode 292 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations was broadcast in Japan , a Pierrot anime that seems to have come back after receiving a lot of criticism during its first story arcs. This chapter is not just any, since it is the penultimate of Part 1 of the anime, the one that was in charge of directing the plot towards a “see you later” that promises to be exciting .
To this day, it is not known when the second part of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations will arrive, but what the fans are clear about is that the wait will be very hard, and even more so after learning about the events of episode 292. Yesterday the expected confrontation took place. ending between Kawaki and Boruto , and their match had more than one reference to one of the most important moments in all of Naruto Shippuden .

Should I give Boruto a second chance?
I consider Naruto to be one of the best manganimes in all of history, and for that very reason I decided to watch its sequel when it was released. Unfortunately the story of Boruto and his companions did not hook me in the least. The first arcs of the series seemed bland and soulless to me, practically living on the great legacy of Naruto Shippuden.
With the passage of time I began to hear that both the manga and the anime of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations made a big change for the better and the story began to be really fascinating. That’s why right now I ask you readers: Should I give this work a second chance?
