Boruto Episode 155 Release Date after COVID-19 Delay
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 155 release date has been delayed over a month as the previous episode 154 in the series was released on April 26. The show went on a hiatus after the coronavirus pandemic hit Japan and most of the anime and manga series were badly affected by it. Boruto series is also on a hiatus since then and it is not clear when the next episode in the anime will come out.
