Sasuke clashes with the hooded figure, who attacks him with a kusarigama. Sasuke blocks it with his sword, and channels Chidori through his sword and figure's weapon, knocking them down. His assailant is a small pale boy with Sharingan, wearing the Uchiha crest who flees. Sarada rushes to the Hokage's office, intending to ask him where her father is. Naruto receives a message from Sasuke by hawk about the boy with the Sharingan. Naruto consults Kakashi, who surmises he might be related to a particular person. The boy meets with a hooded man, who asks him about Sasuke, intending to kill him for having killed Itachi. As she arrives at Naruto's office, Sarada overhears him saying he is leaving to meet Sasuke personally with Sarada later rushing home to see Sakura still lying on the bed, having fainted earlier. Sarada then changes her outfit and leaves once again. Chōchō meets Sarada by the gates. Naruto asks Shikamaru to tell Boruto he's sorry, and sets off. Boruto arrives moments later with a lunch Hinata asked him to deliver. Sarada offers to take the lunch to Naruto, and takes off with Chōchō. As they leave, the two are watched with a Sharingan-wielding creature. The boy Shin is commanded to abduct Sarada. Shin accosts Chōchō and Sarada, and begins fighting them. Naruto intervenes before Shin can kill Chōchō. Shin reveals a Mangekyō Sharingan, prompting Naruto to enter Six Paths Sage Mode. Shin tries a sneak attack with remotely controlled weapons, which Naruto blocks with chakra arms. Shin dodges Naruto's chakra arms, and is told to retreat by the Sharingan creature. Chōchō briefly considers the possibility of Naruto being her father. Deeming it too dangerous for them to travel back to the village, Naruto has them travel with him. Before they head off, Sarada delivers his lunch. Along the journey, Naruto describes Sasuke to Sarada, and compares her to both of her parents. When they near the Ridge Tower where they're supposed to meet Sasuke, Sarada sneaks off and rushes ahead. When she gets closer, the prospect of finally meeting her father awakens her Sharingan. When she arrives, Sasuke sees her and draws his sword, asking if she's with Shin.
After Naruto blocks Shin's attacks with Tailed Beast Chakra Arms, Sarada and Chōchō mention that they know Naruto having the Nine-Tails inside his body, while in the manga, they don't mention this fact.
An error occurs when Shin tries to fend off Naruto's chakra arms' assult with his shuriken on the chain, despite the fact that the shuriken was already dismantled by Shin a moment earlier to launch an attack on Naruto.
