In Boruto, the characters from Naruto have all grown up and have become parents, and it is so heartwarming to see them raising their children. Meanwhile, the children have their own thoughts and are struggling with many problems, and we cannot wait to see what will happen next!
Fans have the chance to see the transition between the story of Naruto and Boruto at NARUTO⇒BORUTO museum, the exhibition which has opened from 2 May in Shibuya, Tokyo.
At this museum, there are not just amazing illustrations of Naruto and Boruto, but also many booths which will definitely make the fans excited! Today, I will like to report on the event and show you what the inside is like!
NARUTO⇒BORUTO Museum Photo Report
The exhibition starts with the visuals of Naruto and Boruto’s setting, the Village Hidden in the Leaves (Konohagakure no Sato).
Visitors get to enjoy the best scenes starting from Naruto’s first episode to Naruto Shippuuden‘s final episode.
You even get to see the best lines in Naruto! They are displayed coupled with the best scenes, and I felt myself heating up with energy, just like when I was reading Naruto!
There are also the data sheets of Naruto’s main characters! You can enjoy looking at many facial expressions of each character.
Then, the scene collection continues on to Boruto, but photos are only allowed in the first part. Visitors will have the chance to see tons of cool scenes from Boruto.
The museum has life-sized figures of Iruka, Kakashi, Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke! It is very rare to actually look into the eyes of the characters. These are high-quality figures, so I was rather excited!
Look at this photo of Kakashi and Iruka together. They are so manly and handsome, that even I, a man, felt my heart pounding!
These are the three members of Team 7. Look at how powerful Sasuke’s cool eyes are!
There are many character goods being displayed at the goods booth! The illustrations on these goods were all drawn just for this event! The vivid tin badges and acrylic key chains catch the eyes of the visitors. Although the museum had just opened when I went, there were so many fans who had already bought these goods. Boruto is very popular.
This is where I got the most excited. The booth has a trick art of Kyuubi/Kurama in which you get to ‘give a fist bump’ to the character! Actually, it is just an illustration hanging from the wall, but if you take a photo from a good position, it almost looks like you are touching Kurama’s hand!
I definitely recommend you to take a photo here and post it on Facebook or Twitter!
Near the exit of the museum, there were many fans who were writing messages to Naruto and Boruto. Look at how many messages there are! And this was only the first day! I wonder how many comments there will be by the final day of the exhibition.
Naruto and Boruto
The displays at the exhibition were put in a story-like order, so the fans get to review the best scenes of Naruto and look forward to watching more episodes of Boruto.
There were also many entertaining aspects that capture the fans’ hearts such as the trick art in which you get to establish an emotional bond with Kurama and the beautiful life-sized character figures. They would make you feel like you’ve actually entered the world of Naruto and Boruto!
I have posted many more photos on MANGA.TOKYO’s Facebook photo album, so please check them out, too!
