All fans who follow the adventures of Naruto's son Boruto will have to adjust to some new voices in the German language version. Today, KSM Anime announced line-up changes for the German voice cast of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations .
Accordingly, the German voices of Mirai Sarutobi, Maito Gai and Asuma Sarutobi had to be replaced for reasons of availability for future volumes. The lineup now looks like this:
|role||new speakers: in||original cast|
|Mirai Sarutobi||Samina Koenig||Sarah Diener|
|Maito Gai||Kai Henrik Möller||Hans Heller|
|Asuma Sarutobi||Ulrich Hilke||Eberhard Haar|
However, KSM Anime has good news: Shikamaru voice artist Jacob Weigert will continue to voice the Hokage's advisor. The Wiesbaden-based anime label thus refutes the recent rumors about a new cast.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations , the follow-up series to Naruto Shippuden , is being produced at Studio Pierrot, directed by Noriyuki Abe and Hiroyuki Yamashita, and currently has over 230 episodes. The sequel anime has been running on Japanese TV since April 2017 and also on Crunchyroll every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. with German subtitles in simulcast.
For a home video release, KSM Anime secured the rights to Boruto and has been releasing it on DVD and Blu-ray with German and Japanese voice acting since November 2019. Netflix also offers the first 100 episodes on demand.
WHAT BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS IS ABOUT :
Boruto Uzumaki, son of Naruto and Hinata, joins the ninja academy to follow the ninja path and follow in his father's great footsteps. This is now not only a loving husband and proud father of two children, but also the seventh Hokage of Konohagakure and has finally achieved his long-fought lifelong dream. But one person's joy is another's sorrow, because Boruto is only seen by his classmates as "son of Naruto" and is not taken seriously. But Boruto's commitment and his stubborn character soon manage to invalidate all prejudices. Together with Shikamaru and Temari's son Shikadai, Ino and Sai's son Inojin, Sakura's and Sasuke's daughter Sarada, and many other ninja pupils, he experiences all sorts of adventures around his village and meets many old and new acquaintances.
