Review: Boruto: Naruto the Movie Blu-ray Set

The New Generation hits Blu-Ray!

It's incredible how fast time flies. I remember like it was yesterday when I wrote my review for Boruto: Naruto the Movie, which was also my first piece on Japanator. You can read the full review here. Considering the movie came out a year and a half ago, I'm really surprised how long it took to come to Blu-ray. The Last: Naruto the Movie didn't take this long to release, but I guess they wanted it to be close to the release of the new Boruto series coming this April. 

Boruto: Naruto the Movie (Blu-ray [reviewed], DVD)
Studio: Studio Pierrot
Licensed By: Viz Media
Released: March 28, 2017 (NA)
MSRP: $29.99

The Boruto: Naruto the Movie Blu-Ray & DVD Combo Pack comes with both the Blu-Ray and DVD versions of the movie. It also includes special features such as storyboards, showing how the movie was made, a clean version of the ending sequence—meaning no credits shown so you can enjoy the animation sequence, the Japanese trailers, artwork and The Day Naruto Became Hokage OVA, which debut in the Japanese limited edition of the movie, and released in North America two weeks prior this Blu-ray release. 

The movie comes with an English audio track, English audio track with English subtitles, and the original Japanese audio track with English subtitles. My problem with the English with English subtitles option is that it does not match the dialogue from the English audio and most likely it's the same subtitles from the Japanese version, which is very lazy. Including the Japanese version with no subtitles would have been nice as well as there isn't a logical reason not to include it. If you're familiar with the English dub, the quality in this one is no different from the past. I personally like it. 

If you missed out watching the movie in theaters (though by now you probably watched it by other means), or are a fan of the English dub and was waiting for the English release, then you should definitely get this set. The extra content is definitely a nice bonus and it will give you everything you need to know before the Boruto series debuts this anime season.

THE VERDICT

Boruto: Naruto the Movie
reviewed by: Christian Chiok

Charming - Not perfect, but it's easy to ignore the rough spots when faced with so many engaging qualities. It’s hard not to like and recommend to others.
