NOTE: The series does not feature any official "arc" or "season" sub-listing titles on Japanese home media releases, which was originally the case in determining the division of both Naruto anime series. For practicality purposes this article has been split up into smaller sectioned listings, with each representing groups of 52 episodes each (with the exception of the sixth list, which consists of 33 episodes and stops at the end of the anime's first part). These lists do not constitute as an official means for dividing the Boruto anime series.
Below, you will find your guide on watching Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. To help with readability, the episodes will be broken up into 50-episode parts as those tend to be good places to end both numerically and in the story. After the first listing, you will find a list for mixed, anime, and manga canon episodes. There will also be a list of manga canon only episodes. The final list will be a filler episodes only list.
That brings the total down to 204 episodes. This includes all mixed, anime, and manga canon episodes. It appears the eleventh entry above will continue through at least episode 234 before adding more filler episodes.
The next list will be a manga canon episodes list. This list of episodes will adhere most closely to the story told in the manga. It also makes for the most streamlined viewing experience.
With manga canon episodes only, the number drops to a mere 58 episodes. If you only care about the fight against the Otsutsuki and the enigma that is Kawaki (among others), then these are the episodes for you.
The filler episodes comprise 29 total episodes. Compared to the 90 over the original Naruto series (220 episodes) and 200 for Naruto Shippuden (500 episodes), 29 is rather miniscule.
The manga of Boruto began serialization in May 2016, but has been on a monthly release schedule. The anime began less than a year later in April 2017. Basically, the pace of the anime exceeds the manga. As such, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations took a different tact from the previous two series by minimizing filler and adding anime canon episodes that focus more on character development. The anime even went on a hiatus during parts of the pandemic and still has less than 60 manga canon episodes.
To put it in perspective, there will be 233 episodes of the anime as of January 23, 2022. As of the same date, there will have only been 66 chapters of the manga released.
