Sasuke’s Story is confirmed with a new poster!
Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha are two of the most notable characters in the entire shinobi world. The iconic duo has taken center stage numerous times and provided countless moments which have remained etched in the minds of their fans.
However, it’s been a long time since we saw both Naruto and Sasuke involved in a major plotline in the Boruto series. Since becoming the Hokage, Naruto has been involved in the administrative side of the village and balancing his family life.
Meanwhile, Sasuke has been on secret missions finding possible threats and, similar to Naruto, watching his daughter, Sarada, grow.
The pair fought Isshiki Otsutsuki, strongest known Otsutsuki to ever live but Unfortunately, this fight changed the characters drastically as Naruto Uzumaki ended up losing Kurama, and Sasuke lost his Rinnegan.
While Isshiki was eventually subdued, the plot felt incredibly contrived and way too convenient just for the next generation to take the stage at the cost of the old.
Since then, the importance of Naruto and Sasuke in the story has dwindled and the two are barely influential even in their old jobs.
Fans have been wondering if two of the most popular characters, not just in Naruto but also in all of the anime, have lost their importance since Naruto Shippuden concluded.
Many believe the answer is ‘Yes’; indeed, the pair have lost and been nerfed to insignificance, while others argue their legacy supersedes the presential existence.
No matter which side you lean on, there is no doubt the common consensus is fans want to see more of Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha in major creative plotlines like in the good old days.
Well, the good news is that the wish has come true as Boruto new anime is all set to feature The Uchiha and the Heavenly Stardust spin-off novel involving Sasuke’s Story.
So, for all the Sasuke fans out there who are excited to know more about this exciting news, keep scrolling as we bring all the latest news and updates about the spin-off series Sasuke’s Story.

SASUKE RETSUDEN NOVEL AND STORY
Sasuke Retsuden’s novel is written by Jun Esaka and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto. VIZ Media released an English translation in 2019, and four side story chapters have been published.
The events of Sasuke Retsuden take place in the second installment of a three-part series that finds Hokage Naruto fighting off a deadly illness that is rapidly eating away at his health.
This is the very same chakra illness it once affected the Sage of Six Paths, and it was during his time living in the Redaku country that a cure was found.
Kurama revealed that Naruto’s deadly chakra illness is the same one that the sage of six paths once had as the members of Team seven rushed off in search of answers for the cure.
Kakashi is searching in the metropolis of the Redaku country while Sasuke, along with Sakura, finds themselves undercover at a prison.
Sasuke pretends to be a prisoner and Sakura pretends to be a nurse, with both of them going undercover and using their undercover identities to gather crucial intel, all hoping to find a cure for Naruto.
Early in the Story, on more than one occasion, we see how deeply Sasuke is affected by the dire straits that Naruto’s in.
The declining health of his best friend sees Sasuke a tad bit moodier, and he usually is, most importantly, Sasuke’s emotions begin to unravel, showing us just how deeply the bond between the two rivals indeed extends.
At the beginning of this novel, we learn the harsh conditions of the Sasuke’s prison, where the temperatures are well below freezing and prisoners are subjected to insanely hard work conditions.
Sasuke has made it clear that he isn’t someone to be tested with the line stating that he is strong enough that no one can take him out with their bare hands.
It’s a race against time to save Naruto, and Sasuke carries a burden that cannot be underrated. He couldn’t save his brother Itachi, but his non-biological brother Naruto Uzumaki gives Sasuke a chance to make up for that by delivering a cure for his life.
Viz Media describes Sasuke’s Story: The Uchiha and the Heavenly Stardust spin-off novel as follows:
“Uchiha Sasuke heads for an astronomical observatory far from the Land of Fire. There, he syncs up with Sakura, and together they dive into an undercover investigation in search of traces of the Sage of Six Paths! The two are soon drawn into a deadly conspiracy! The popular spin-off novel, now as a manga series!” – Naruto: Sasuke’s Story—The Uchiha and the Heavenly Stardust.
