Oh man… So we finally arrive at what is arguably the best episode of Boruto thus far. No delay, let’s jump right into it.
I’m not going to spoil anything for you guys, you’ll have to watch this for yourself because it’s that good. But we get a lot of great stuff in this episode. Mitsuki relays to Boruto the identity of the masked shinobi, the one behind the attacks. Refusing to believe this, young Boruto rushes away to find the culprit and reason with them. That’s when Mitsuki receives an order to kill the one responsible. I’m not quite sure that the person he’s been speaking with is Orochimaru anymore, seeing how he’s very short and rude to this person. But when he speaks towards or about his father he’s very respectful.
The fight takes us to Senju park, where the masked villain encounters Sai and his team, leaving no choice but to summon the Nue and carry out their plan. Earlier in the episode Sai finds that the person responsible is a man who was in charge of the Senju experiments in the foundation. The man was entrusted with Danzo’s will to continue the Nue project. The beast is basically a giant chakra bomb. The chakra it steals from people is used to power it up. The user runs into enemy lines, summons the Nue and proceeds to detonate it. Eradicating themselves and the enemy. This man sealed the Nue inside his child and entrusted them with the mission he was not able to fulfill.
While the beast rampages, Kakashi arrives with his purple lightning, which was seen in the light novels. This excited me, it was good to finally see this man in action again! Together he and Sai defend the village against the monster until Naruto can arrive. But when he does he instantly goes Kyubi Mode, stating that he can settle this in one move. It was good to see that even though he’s still and idiot, Naruto is still Naruto. Kakashi advises against it given that the Nue absorbs chakra and if it were to intake the Nine Tails’ chakra then it would damn near impossible to stop.
Boruto and Mitsuki catch up with culprit but Mitsuki is dead set on killing them. Telling Boruto that he told him he’d regret it if he came. As the two shinobi clash Boruto jumps in the middle to stop them. This activates his eye as it sends out a line of electricity and seemingly opens a portal. Through the portal the Nue comes and absorbs the culprit. Unwilling to let them get away Boruto and Mitsuki jump into the portal and are transported to another dimension it seems.
Overall, I thought this episode was amazing. I had feeling that the person responsible was who I originally thought it was so I was happy to see my prediction come true. I apologize if this review was short and to the point but I really don’t want to spoil it for you guys. This is truly and episode that has to be watched with your own eyes! Next week’s episode review will be more in depth.
I’m also putting together a full series review for Little Witch Academia so stay tuned for that! So, as always, I’ll catch you guys next time!
