Translation of the above tweet:
“About the Boruto manga:
Starting with Chapter 52 of Boruto, which is set to be published in the December issue of V Jump (on sale November 21), the production team will change as planned from the start.
We would like to thank Kodachi-sensei for all his hard work on writing the story thus far.
From now on, we will continue to produce the series based on drafts written by Masashi Kishimoto-sensei.”
Kishimoto’s previous manga series Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru finished in Weekly Shonen Jump in March 2020, giving him more time to be hands-on with his original series, of which he was only supervising previously.
Many are interested in seeing who he will kill off in his show and also interested in seeing Sarada development throughout the show.
