Earlier this year, the Naruto committee and Studio Pierrot excited fans with the news of four new Naruto episodes to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
These episodes were set to air from September 3 over the following three weeks. The anticipation was building, but unfortunately, the excitement had been put on hold. The Naruto team officially announced an indefinite delay for the new anime episodes. Discover the cause behind this unexpected setback.
Disappointment Among Fans
News of the delay hit Naruto enthusiasts hard, leaving them feeling like the child from the “My Disappointment is Immeasurable and My Day is Ruined” meme.
Everyone had been eagerly anticipating the new 20th-anniversary anime, making this sudden announcement quite disheartening.
Pursuit of Perfection
The reason for pushing back the release of the four anticipated Naruto episodes is clear: “We have made the decision to postpone the broadcast due to the further improvement of the quality of this work.” The Naruto production team wasn’t content with the final product they had been laboring on.
They’re striving for excellence and wish to offer fans exceptional episodes, especially given the comeback after more than six years. The precise rescheduled premiere date for the Naruto 20th-anniversary anime remains unknown at present.
A Silver Lining
While the delay may dampen spirits, there’s a silver lining. The production team’s commitment to quality is accompanied by an apology, and they’ve revealed plans to air a recap of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations’ iconic moments, starting on the original September 3 date.
Patience is a Virtue
Devoted Naruto fans who had been eagerly awaiting the marked date on their calendars now find themselves having to extend their patience. The enhanced quality episodes and the new broadcast schedule for the Naruto anime are now uncertain. In the interim, fans can divert their attention to the new Boruto Two Blue Vortex manga, generating buzz in the anime community due to its fresh character designs.
