Masashi Kishimoto to Take Over as the Writer for the Boruto Manga

The official Twitter account for Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto franchise has announced that Boruto manga storywriter Ukyō Kodachi will retire from the manga, and Kishimoto himself will take over as storywriter. The Twitter account stated that this change was “planned from the beginning.” Kishimoto will take over the role starting with the 52nd chapter, which Shueisha will publish in the December 2020 issue of V Jump on November 21, 2020.

Kodachi and Mikio Ikemoto launched the Boruto sequel manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2016, and the manga ran monthly in the magazine. The manga transferred to Shueisha’s V Jump magazine in July 2019.
