The reason for him, returning as a writer is still unknown to the audience and nothing relevant was revealed by the officials. However, if we pay heed to the ongoing rumors and speculations about the show, it might be the case that the manga story is entering into its major point where fans are expecting to witness a huge turn on the show and this is the time where the story goes back to its original creator.
As far as the show’s popularity is concerned, there have always been mixed feeling about the manga where it has seen that Boruto is one of the trendings shows in the western countries and fans are pretty much excited at this new development in the show. However, in Japan, the show has failed to create its monopoly in the market and the news is rather taken negatively by the audience which is a sad story.
