Hello. I was watching the Boruto anime before but stopped after the arc in the Mist Village because I just couldn't stand the whole "friendship nakama power!" fairy tail shit. I missed the dark grittiness of the original Naruto, where the stakes were real, good guys died, tragic backstory. Now, it just feels like they would never dare show something like the Uchiha Massacre or young Naruto getting bullied and crying. They sanitized it so much. So I want to know, does it get better? And at what episode number does it start following the manga? It's my understanding that the anime starts off as a sort of prequel to the anime because they're still in elementary school basically. And once the anime reaches the manga, does it stick to it? Or does it change it significantly? Wish I could just read the manga but I can't stand how they draw Sarada, they make a 10 year old look like a cheap slut in every panel and it disgusts me. Does the anime change her style when it reaches the manga or does it keep her looking about the same? Also, which episodes are filler? If you could just post a list that would be great.
