VIZ Media has announced the digital debut of Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring in the April 27, 2015 issue of Weekly Shonen Jump. The brand new, limited-run series by Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto depicts a new generation of shinobi and will appear in the English incarnation of Weekly Shonen Jump on the same day as its premiere in Japan.

After a short break, Naruto is back, and the story picks up right where the series finale left off. As the newest Hokage, Naruto’s face now adorns the mountain behind the village, the same one he used to paint on as a prank when he was an attention-seeking kid. After his legendary feats, Naruto has gained the respect of everyone in the ninja world except his own son. Boruto is as bratty and stubborn as Naruto used to be. How will these two ever see eye-to-eye?
