The anticipated debut of the upcoming Naruto anime, originally scheduled for Sunday, September 3, 2023, has encountered a delay. According to an announcement on the anime’s official website, the premiere of this special project has been rescheduled in order to enhance its overall quality. Regrettably, a revised launch date has yet to be disclosed.

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Naruto anime series, a distinctive four-episode installment was planned for release. Despite fervent anticipation from the fan base during the preceding months, the launch was deferred just days ahead of its initial air date. Nevertheless, enthusiasts can hold optimism for its imminent unveiling.


The eagerly awaited 20th anniversary Naruto anime, initially slated for its debut on September 3, 2023, has encountered a delay aimed at “elevating its quality.” This anime project was designed to encompass four successive weekly episodes, commencing on September 3. Regrettably, the exact rescheduled broadcast date remains undisclosed at present.

The creators of the anime express their utmost regrets to the fervent fans who were eagerly anticipating the premiere. They have confirmed that the revised broadcast timetable will be communicated via the official website and various social media platforms as soon as a decision is reached.

Furthermore, the website has also conveyed that in lieu of the initially proposed episode schedule, the franchise intends to present a curated collection of standout episodes from the TV anime “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations,” promising a true “masterpiece” compilation.

Reaction and Remarks

The delay of the anime didn’t come as a surprise to many fans due to the lack of promotional efforts leading up to its scheduled release on Sunday, September 3. Despite the impending premiere, no trailers or promotional videos had been unveiled.

However, the delay wasn’t a source of concern for numerous enthusiasts, as Studio Pierrot’s commitment to enhancing the anime’s quality was widely acknowledged. The studio’s prior decision to postpone the Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King movie resulted in a remarkable improvement in animation quality, fostering confidence among fans that this delay would yield similar positive outcomes.

Nonetheless, a segment of fans expressed disappointment over the setback. With ongoing broadcasts of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War and One Piece, fans had hoped for a simultaneous airing of the Big Three anime. The absence of a new release date dashed these aspirations, leaving fans feeling disheartened.

Contrastingly, a contingent of fans remained unfazed by the postponement of the new Naruto anime. Their attention was instead focused on persistent rumors regarding a comprehensive franchise remake boasting 4K quality. These fans eagerly anticipated an official announcement, seemingly unconcerned about the current delay.
