"interesting stories" You mean fanfiction?
What´s wrong with fanfiction o_O? They are still stories, which can be either good or bad ones.
This shit will be the GT of Naruto.
Too Early to tell but, unlike GT, BORUTO has a better and more organized enviroment and talented staff working on it.

It's also completely unnecessary like GT

Naruto Shippuden at the end was not as great as the first series, which is one of my top anime imo. Boruto is completely unnecessary and milking the series.

I can understand that depending on the angle taken. The original Naruto focused more the ninja side of combat, despite at times there being some super natural things involved. The power scaling in Shippuden, while understandable, probably pulled away from the ninja focus some imo and also made other characters that had more significance in part 1 less significant in part 2.

Episode 1: Boruto Uzumaki

Animation was on POINT. The opening scene was JUST enough, not too much. It also looks like Naruto maybe isn't dead? since Kawaki said "sent". Seeing all the characters again just ahh... so nice. I love the Denki kid, the pacing was so nice in the episode. Just enough action, just enough slice of life. I'm fanboying man like seriously wtf what a great way to start off a new series.

A few nuances that I liked about Boruto was first when he failed throwing the kunai at the lever, he is still obvious still an amateur. Also, he talks the same way like Naruto with his "dattebayo".

It surprised me that Boruto is not popular at all in school. He made an even greater entrance at his first than Naruto did back then...And, got suspended as well...On the first day.

I do not understand why Sarada insulted Boruto. From her expression when she fist saw Boruto, it seemed like she was intrigued in him.

Shikadai is really awesome He is so mature for his age And, he is really smart as well. Temari and Shikamaru had a great child. They must be proud of him. He is being well raised.

I wonder what that dark aura might be....I also thought while watching it, that Himawari should be shorter, as she is a couple of years younger than Boruto, and all. She should be ,more or less, like she was in the OVA.

I wonder why Inojin does not consider Boruto worthy of his trust. Brouto is a troublemaker, but he is a good kid at heart, and a loyal friend at times. It was not good that Boruto put the blame of his tardiness on Shikadai.

The only known thing about the father of Denki, is that he is an abusive parent, and has the train business. He was in the war....I wonder who he might have been.

I really enjoyed it.

Inojin kind of reminded of Sai, based on how he was presented. I wonder when Mitsuki will come into the picture.

If you want to watch the anime without filler, here is a helpful guide:
http://www.animefillerlist.com/shows/naruto
http://www.animefillerlist.com/shows/naruto-shippuden
Some of the filler Arcs and episodes are quite good and some of them provide a bit more details and flesh out certain elements that were not in the original manga.

Or if you want a faster way to experience Naruto, I´d suggest reading the manga (700 chapters of 15-20 pages each) and then continue with Boruto anime.

Episode 2: The Hokage's Son

First thing to notice from the episode is that Boruto is a pretty child and cool, despite the shit talking from his peers he doesn't bite back (like Naruto would, which is a good contrast) and shurgs it off. He only gets serious when Iwabe got up in his face and hurt Denki.

The episode introduces another new anime characters, Iwabe and Sumire.
Iwabe could work as an OK rival type character but, is uncertain if the anime will take hin that route.
Sumire is filling the role of the class re, cause we always need that character in a schoolish setting!

Another character that gets introduction is Inojin, and the episode does a find job in characterizing him as a guy with a very straight way to communicate his thoughts which could annoy some characters.

The episode has its second fight in the whole show and you can notice a certain dipe in quality, fortunatelly is nothing major, nothing is horribly drawn and composed, just the chereography being a bit janky in the character movements.

Overall an enjoyable episode.

Edit:
Oh boy, how doomed are we?
The author is not the only one capable of writing good stories.
