Boruto Manga Series To Take A Short Break Before Chapter 72 Releases Worldwide

Chapter 72 of the Boruto manga series will sadly be taking a one-month break, but thankfully the new release date has just been confirmed.

For the vast majority of manga readers around the world, their favourite series become a staple of their Sunday schedule with weekly releases of new chapters.

However, fans of the Boruto franchise typically have a much more frustrating wait than most communities as the series makes use of a monthly release schedule.

Unfortunately, we will all have to wait slightly longer to see the Boruto manga return with confirmation of an upcoming one-month break, so what date will chapter 72 now release around the world?
