When it all seemed to be over with the end of the Naruto series, created by Masashi Kishimoto, “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” appeared, the sequel to the next generation of ninjas that continued the story, but without the direct involvement of the creator of the franchise.
This new installment features Boruto, the son of the previous main character Naruto, who is accompanied by a group of young ninjas, most also descendants of other characters from the classic series. In addition, the sequel also features the adult versions of Shikamaru and Sasuke, among others.
And while Boruto’s success is undeniable, many feel that the Naruto sequel shouldn’t have focused on his son, but rather Sarada Uchiha, the daughter of Sasuke and Sakura.
Although Sarada is one of the key figures in “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” as a fundamental part of Team 7, the truth is that everything continues to revolve around Boruto.
The fans and more specialized in this anime series consider that the character of Boruto does not provide major differences with his father Naruto: both the personality and physically are very similar. They both share the ability to unite people and have a very particular determination, even sharing techniques like Shadow Clones and Rasengan as well.
On the other hand, Boruto’s story does not resonate with his viewers, as he does not want to become a Hokage, he has not had to challenge fate and fight adversity like his father, and rather he has a quite comfortable lifestyle.
Instead, Sarada has a unique and defined characterization. And she has the best of her parents: the genius of her father and the kindness of her mother, and to this she adds her own personality that is characterized by her leading spirit.
Furthermore, she not only does want to become a Hokage in the future, but she also has to deal with the burden of a father she barely knows and who is unloved for her actions in the Naruto series.
Finally, Sarada has more strategy in the fight and is even continually searching and discovering new moves and plays. Her character, for many, is more interesting than Boruto. And the story could have taken an original turn, to put it as the protagonist.
