    I guess you could call me a Bolt critic. I've already written my thoughts about Bolt's abilities elsewhere, but I don't think it's bad that he behaves like Naruto. It's not the fact that he can use...

    I guess I misspoke a little. Boruto wants to surpass Naruto because, for no apparent reason, he hates his father. So he does not specifically want to be Hokage, he just wants to surpass the Hokage.
