Boruto: Fans Shocked by Lack of Comedy in Two Blue Vortex Arc

The premiere of Boruto: Two Blue Vortex started with a bang, introducing viewers to fresh character designs and a shift in behavior after the time jump. Viewers were introduced to an adolescent Sarada Uchiha and Kawaki, followed by a grown-up Boruto Uzumaki who exhibited significant growth.

The ongoing series has already unveiled 9 chapters and has received a surprisingly enthusiastic response from its fans. The released chapters have primarily focused on the serious development of the story, delving into the Code and Shinju Clones. Interestingly, fans have expressed disappointment over a particular absent factor.

Humor Absent in Boruto: Two Blue Vortex

Despite its constant thrill and excitement, Boruto: Two Blue Vortex appears to be lacking in humor. As the chapters are released on a monthly basis, the story is just beginning to unfold. It continues where Boruto: Naruto Next Generations left off – with Boruto escaping the village alongside Sasuke Uchiha.

The 9 released chapters have been dedicated to further developing the story after a 4-year time skip. Masashi Kishimoto, the creator, has effectively portrayed a more mature version of the characters that fans were already familiar with.

Boruto’s diligent training under Sasuke has greatly benefited him, transforming him into a skilled shinobi. Viewers are treated to impressive displays of Kawaki, Mitsuki, and Code’s abilities, and are then introduced to the Shinju Clones. Additionally, it is revealed that Sasuke is currently in a coma and trapped in a tree after a confrontation with the Grime monsters.

Despite everything, fans have expressed that there appears to be a dearth of comedy. It is highly probable that not a single panel contains a humorous or lighthearted moment. This elicited a surprising reaction from the fanbase.

Fan Reactions to the Seriousness of Boruto: Two Blue Vortex

Despite being relatively new, Two Blue Vortex lacks the comedic elements present in its predecessors, Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. In contrast, these previous series incorporated humorous moments from the start.

As a result, supporters have turned to social media to express their responses to this development.

“Sensei is locked in fr,”a user commented.

“I am not surprised since he did state in his old interview that it would get dark. The only question is how dark…”another fan posted.

“The time of true peace is gone. And the beginning of the end of the shinobi world has finally begun,”a netizen opined.

It appears that several people have grasped the underlying cause of the events thus far. One user mentioned a specific interview with Kishimoto, in which he disclosed that things would “take a darker turn”. Fans may also be reminded of the start of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, which showed a devastated Konoha.

“That is true, it is depressing. With Naruto, he had introduced Jiraiya, who made the atmosphere a lot lighter. Not complaining, it is again depicting the mood of the story,”a fan commented.

“I hope we get some more comedy NG,.”an X user wrote.

“Dark tones are trending,”a netizen posted.

A different part of the fan base fondly remembered the days of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden. In particular, they reflected on how Jairya brought humor to the series, along with other characters. The Sanin played a significant role in both the show and in shaping the protagonist. His character often set the tone for future events as well.

Overall, although not entirely satisfied, a growing number of people are starting to come to terms with the dark theme that Boruto: Two Blue Vortex is trying to convey.
