Funko Pop 673 Mitsuki

Mitsuki is a fictional character created by manga artist Masashi Kishimoto. He was first introduced in the Naruto spin-off manga Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring (2015), being portrayed as a transfer student attending classes in Konohagakure to become a ninja. By the events of the film Boruto: Naruto the Movie (2015), Mitsuki has become a ninja on a team with protagonist Boruto Uzumaki and Sarada Uchiha, taking a lead role in Ukyō Kodachi and Mikio Ikemoto's manga sequel to Naruto, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations (2016), and its anime prequel, which shows how he became friends with Boruto while facing different enemies. A one-shot by Kishimoto reveals that Mitsuki is an experiment created by the Legendary Sannin and former enemy of Naruto, Orochimaru, who allowed him to take his own path in life.

In the making of the film Boruto and the anime series, Hiroyuki Yamashita was in charge of developing the character despite his small role in the film. Critical reception to Mitsuki has been mixed. While his role in the Boruto film was criticized for its lack of development, both his backstory portrayed in the one-shot and his role in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations were praised for adding depth to his character, even though he remained a mysterious child.

Boruto is a Japanese manga series written by Ukyō Kodachi and Masashi Kishimoto, and illustrated by Mikio Ikemoto. It initially began monthly serialization under the title Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, with Kodachi as writer and Kishimoto as editorial supervisor in Shueisha's shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump in May 2016, and was transferred to Shueisha's monthly magazine V Jump in July 2019. In November 2020, Kodachi stepped down, with Kishimoto taking over as writer. In April 2023, the series concluded the first part of the story and, following a brief hiatus, continued in August of the same year with a second part titled Boruto: Two Blue Vortex. Boruto is a spin-off and a sequel to Kishimoto's Naruto and follows the exploits of Naruto Uzumaki's son, Boruto Uzumaki, and his ninja team.

Boruto originated from Shueisha's proposal to Kishimoto on making a sequel to Naruto. However, Kishimoto rejected this offer and proposed his former assistant Mikio Ikemoto to draw it; the writer of the film Boruto: Naruto the Movie, Ukyō Kodachi, created the plot. A 293-episode anime television series adaptation, produced by Pierrot with Ukyō Kodachi's story supervision (episodes 1–216), was broadcast on TV Tokyo from April 2017 to March 2023; a second part has been announced to be in development. Unlike the manga, which began as a retelling of the Boruto film, the anime begins as a prequel set before Boruto and his friends become ninjas in a later story arc. A series of light novels have also been written.

The anime series has earned praise for its use of both new and returning characters, but the narrative of the manga was noted to be more serious as it focused more on the protagonist.
