"The Hokage's Son…!!" (火影の息子…!!, Hokage no Musuko…!!) is episode 2 of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.

Synopsis

Shino explains how the role of the Academy has changed. In addition to shinobi skills being taught as in the past, a broader curriculum of non-shinobi related courses are available. Boruto returns from his two week suspension. Inojin notices him through the window. After Boruto arrives in his classroom, the other students begin gossiping about him, which Boruto ignores. Chōchō and Sumire ask Sarada about Boruto. Sarada says she finds him annoying, and the other two gush about Naruto. Inojin bluntly says what everyone else is thinking about Boruto. Boruto extends his hand in friendship, but Inojin refuses, considering him to be untrustworthy. Sumire tries defusing the situation as Shino arrives at the classroom. During practice to assess everyone's strengths and weaknesses, Denki tells Boruto he got the second best time. The one with the best time, Iwabee, isn't there. Boruto tries joining other students for lunch, but they hurry out of the classroom. Iwabee antagonizes Boruto over being the Hokage's son, seeing the current state of the Academy as being soft, despite having flunked twice. Denki speaks in Boruto's defense, and Iwabee targets him. Boruto stops Iwabee from hurting Denki. Despite promising himself he wouldn't fight, Boruto challenges Iwabē to a fight. The class watches nervously, while Inojin is amused. After talking with Anko, Shino arrives at an empty classroom, much to his confusion, as everyone ditched class to watch the fight. The class watches the two fighting, Iwabee even saying he won't use his weapon. Boruto and Iwabee are both impressed with each other's skills. Iwabee is frustrated he can't graduate only with shinobi related subjects. After a solid strike on him, Iwabee begins using Earth Release, creating an earth hammer. Inojin takes the hammer out of his reach with his drawings, and points out Iwabee broke his own rule on not using his weapon. Iwabee realises his mistake. The atmosphere in the class improves, Boruto becomes more popular, and Iwabē decides to start attending class again. Shino then arrives to start class.

Trivia

  • When Boruto unleashed his initial taijutsu assault on Iwabee, his combo attack was identical to Sasuke's own assault on Kakashi Hatake during the bell test.
  • During the fight, when Boruto kicked Iwabee, the position that he was on the air was similar as of his father, Naruto when he kicked away Gaara in his Shukaku form to save Sasuke from him.
