  • This character is a huge disappointment compared to Naruto he is a whining brat with no respect towards his father, and his accomplishments.

    The worst insult is his admiration towards Sasuke as a mentor who I consider inferior, and the supposed death of Naruto.

    He will never compare to Naruto in my opinion his life has been a paradise compared to his father.

    The only character that I respect in the series is Sarada who genuinely cares for his parents, and admired them, and respects what a Hokage is.

    • Is there a discussion you're trying to have here?

    • This is the wrong board for this conversation, but I agree. I tried to get into Boruto, I really did, but he was such a whiny brat that I couldn't even finish the first couple of volumes.

    • This was my discussion about Boruto if it is wrong point out where I can post it.

      I tried to be a faithful follower to the series, and see it through the end but Boruto disgusts me in all matters.

      The reason I asked was because nothing in your original post asked for a response. Essentially all you said was "I absolutely hate this character." Well yeah okay, but what kind of discussion do you want? Do you want a discussion about what people like/dislike or which characters people like/dislike? What is the goal of this thread for you?

    • This is simply a dislike to this character compared to Boruto because Naruto acted like a brat but with a specific reason.

      The boy insults the father because he doesn’t pay attention to him but the village but fails to recognize what a Shinobi really is.

      Naruto lived a terrible childhood compared to the paradise of Boruto who had patents that cared for him.

    • So this wasn't made with the intent of discussion, it was only made for you to vent your dislike of Boruto, correct?

    • Yeah, I think you should go ahead and lock the thread Reaper.

    • I agree in the sense that I think they are trying to hard to make Boruto just Naruto 2.0. They should have made him a lot more like Pre-Uchiha Massacre Sasuke in attitude although friendlier with his own friends of course. He is a skilled prodigy who feels like he has something to prove to somebody(Naruto) while Sasuke was a skilled prodigy who felt like he had something to prove to somebody too(Fugaku). They got so damn lazy that they decided to just make him 95% Naruto all over again and that is stupid as hell.

    • I hadn't thought about that, but you're right. That would have been a lot better, and it would also be a better explanation as to why he and Sasuke are so close. On a similar note, isn't it weird that Boruto hates Naruto because he's rarely home and is busy with his duties, but worships Sasuke, who's rarely home and is busy with his duties?

      I know right, Boruto super hypocritical. What I found quite interesting about Boruto is his journey to try and get out of Naruto's shadow. He doesn't want to be known as the Hokage's son. Similar to Sasuke he has this inferiority/superiority complex when it comes to Naruto. Obviously in terms of father/son. So he longs for Naruto's approval, but loves to hate and criticize Naruto.

      Apart from shadow clones (minus vanishing rasengan) I'd say Boruto is quite different and certainly not Naruto 2.0. I'd even argue that the writing of Boruto's character and arc so far is better than any of the other characters of this new era.

    • Point #1: Boruto is a whining brat with no respect towards his father or his accomplishments.

      Well, Naruto was also a whining brat in Part 1. But yeah, Boruto had no respect for his father or accomplishments. He didn't have any sense of really how incredible of a character Naruto was in terms of accomplishments and mindset. But a large point of the movie (and the Chuunin Exams arc) was to show that Boruto was wrong in that regard and had to see for himself the kind of man Naruto was. In the end, Boruto realizes it and asks Naruto to tell him more about his old adventures.

      Point #2 The worst insult is his admiration towards Sasuke as a mentor who I consider inferior, and the supposed death of Naruto.

      Admiring Sasuke isn't bad. And while you consider Sasuke as inferior, the manga and anime have both explicitly stated they're equal. Sasuke (now) is a guardian of Leaf who doesn't ask for any recognition. He chooses to stay out of the spotlight and just does what he has to to protect the village. Boruto may have started out following Sasuke to distance himself from Naruto, but following Sasuke is not a bad thing.

      Point #3 Boruto will never compare to Naruto and his life was paradise in comparison.

      Boruto is already more competent than Naruto at the same age.

      Just because Naruto had a rougher childhood, doesn't mean Boruto's pain doesn't count. That's a ridiculous argument. Naruto had to suffer solitude. Boruto had to suffer the feeling of neglect. Both are awful to go through, even if Naruto's was more visceral. Boruto also has the hurdle of expectations; he's the son of the legendary Naruto. He can produce 4 Shadow Clones, which is amazing for someone his age, yet most people just note that Naruto was making hundreds at the same age. Boruto already has an image he has to live up to, and any impressive thing he does is usually amounted to being Son of the Seventh. Whereas everyone expected Naruto to fail in the first place, and so were surprised when he did anything competent. Basically Boruto has to deal with his universe's version of you; that is, people who won't let him get out of Naruto's shadow.

      Lots of people here have called Boruto a Naruto clone; I disagree.

      "He just uses Shadow Clone and Rasengan like Naruto"

      He doesn't just overwhelm with numbers, because he can't; he has to develop ways to use his smaller power pool. Boruto stream is a good example.

      "He's just a prankster and strategizes the same way as Naruto did."

      Being a prankster can very well be inherited; besides, barring Naruto's fight with Zabuza, Naruto's main strategy is surprising the opponent with how much chakra he has. Essentially leaving the opponent saying "wow what crazy stamina, how is he still standing?"

      "They have the same personality."

      Not at all. Both have a sense of sticking up for their teammates, but Boruto knew it up front. He's been sticking up for his teammates from the get go. Naruto only wanted to prove himself, and switched gears after the fight with Zabuza.

      Another difference in personality is how they tackle problems. Boruto by nature wants to take shortcuts and get there as quickly as possible. Naruto will often use his insane stamina to pull off strategies only he could, but in a way that would leave anyone else drained of chakra.

      He knocked out Sakura on one occasion, tried to kill her on another, made her hallucinate him violently killing her to incapacitate her (when he could have used a less extreme genjutsu) on a third, and repeatedly said he didn't care about her, in addition to using Karin as a meat shield and not caring whether she lived or died. I'm not trying to turn this into a Sasuke hate thread, and I know characters can change (I'm one of those who doesn't object to antagonists changing sides and even becoming valuable & loyal allies). It's just that I find a character admiring a character with a history of violence and neglect against women to be problematic. If they address that, good. If not, it's a big issue for me.

      Boruto has no idea about Sasuke's history of violence and neglect against women. Boruto had no idea about his own father's history, and Sasuke's even more enigmatic. Boruto isn't admiring who Sasuke was, he's admiring who Sasuke is today; a shadow guardian of the Leaf.

      Sasuke was a terrible person throughout some of Part 1 and almost all of Shippuden. I'm not defending his actions as a teen. But as an adult, he's living his life to redeem himself. And that's the only version of Sasuke that Boruto knows; the one steadfast watchful protector with a chip on his shoulder.

      So I stand by my statement; admiring Sasuke isn't bad.
