Whether you’re a longtime fan of the Naruto series or haven’t watched a single episode (gasp!), it’s hard not to love this new kid on the block. Not only is it a fast-paced Shonen Jump romp with an epically colorful opening theme, it’s a great introduction to our new generation. If you’re an old-school Naruto fan like me, the whole episode felt like coming back to your hometown after being away for a while. The landmarks are familiar, but it’s clear that time and technology march on. It’s a homecoming that leaves you smiling the whole episode.

Much like a good pair of jeans, styles might get an update, but nothing beats the feeling of some good, quality denim. The Hidden Leaf Village is that trusty fabric and Boruto is the freshest new cut. Fashion metaphors aside, this first episode doesn’t let you stew too much in nostalgia. Boruto is his own person and refuses to sit idly by, living in the shadow of his famous father!
