VIZ Media Secures Boruto Anime Series Rights

VIZ Media has recently announced that they have acquired the digital, broadcast, master merchandising, and home media rights to the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations for the North American and Latin American territories.

As a result of the acquisition, VIZ Media has partnered with streaming giant Hulu for the U.S. simulcast of the series’ first episode on April 5, which is the same day as its premiere in Japan. Succeeding episodes will continue to air weekly on Wednesdays.

For the uninitiated, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is the continuation of the Naruto franchise, set years after the end of Naruto: Shippuden and follows the adventures of Naruto’s son, Boruto. For those who need a bit of a refresher, Hulu is also offering the complete Naruto Shippuden collection.

“We are very excited to announce the acquisition of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations and know that fans everywhere will be looking forward to the debut of these new episodes,” says Charlene Ingram, VIZ Media’s senior manager of animation marketing.
