    • So it seems that both Mitsuki and Orochimaru are aware about the 'monster' in fact, the reason why Orochimaru sent Mitsuki after Boruto might be because Orochimaru learned that Boruto can see it. But it doesn't seem like they are responsible. Now really curious ... a new tailed beast? :D

      Well a tailed beast is a very specific form of a chakra beast. But if you think about, beings like the Shinigami and King of Hell could be considered Chakra monsters.

      I'm not too happy with this episode, but that's mostly because i thoroughly despise the japanese obsession with either extremely shy or extremely abrasive girls (and in this case, a boy as well). Why no regularly awkward people?

      Chouchou continues to be fun however, and we got some theorycrafting on the phenomena which really felt like the saving grace of this episode.

      Well he did investigate things like the Shinigami, it's possible that he's been looking for similar creatures in the world.

    • The fact that Sarada was in art class, potentially making a sculpture or a drawing of Tobirama, is absolutely HILARIOUS!

      Remember the Zero-Tails beast from one of the first Naruto Shippuden Movies? All the descriptions and effects of this monster possessing people completely match that of the Zero Tailed Beast. The Zero Tails basically seeks out people with negative emotions who are feeling sad or frustrated, then possesses them, causing them to go on rampages while feeding off their negative energy too. That's basically a perfect description of what's going on now. Also, Boruto asked his friends whether chakra could manifest as a monster, which was a clear reference and possible foreshadowing to a tailed beast.

      True, but the anime has precedence with considering characters and events from filler episodes to be canon (such as Naruto's encounter with Utakata). And since the Boruto anime right now isn't based on any manga, they have a lot room for freedom to add whatever they please.

    • The cases of the anime-only characters becoming canon in the manga are really rare, and I know only two of them (Raiga and Utakata). What's more important, there's no single character from the movie who was adapted into the canon storyline.

      There's actually been quite a few more cases such as Guren and Yukimaru during the 3-Tailed Beast arc. Those 2 characters were brought back in one of the last episodes of Shippuden. I think there were a few more too from filler arcs that have been brought back or at least events from filler arcs that persisted throughout the anime even after the filler arc was finished. So it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that this could be the first time something from a movie is brought into the anime. But you're probably right and this monster might be something totally new, but based on everything we know right now, it certainly does remind you of the Zero-Tails.

    • I'm speaking about anime characters integrated into manga and by proxy into the canon storyline. Guren and Yukimaru have never appeared there, their cameo in the last episodes of Shippuden is also an anime-only addition.

    • Well the episode isn't that much of a interest. Well I found the ninja stalker thing a little scary lol, and they were only 8 year olds at that time lol. Well the new info about the dark creature is the growth of the dark creature, and that it also sucks up chakra from others but for some reason not it's victim's? I wonder if this creature was discovered by Oro and he personally sended Mitsuki so to gain info about it and also male peace with the Leaf?

      Well I also wonder if they gonna make this a canon? considering it's before their orginal story so why not? and the manga could just make it a flashback or something? and is it possible that it's the creature that controlled The Kote guy from the movie/manga? I mean his symtoms seems to be the same for the victims of this creature?

    • Chocho is both hilarious & very sweet, with her crisps (potato chips). That line about giving them a chance made me grin like kid Obito! An' how nice she was to Magire after embarrassing him & Sumire (although, I dadmit she owes them both an apology for the embarrassment part). Lastly, she Talk-no-Jutsu-ed Magire into stopping his attack. She ws pretty cool in previous Episodes, but this one really made her shine. *smirks* Chocho is definitely my Nr 1 Fave character in the new anime!

      I'm very annoyed that it was Boruto asking Magire why he's following the 3 girls around rather than, oh, I dunno, Chocho's best friend SARADA. I mean, being the Protagonist doesn't make Boruto automitically the only one who has any right to demand answers, especially since it wasn't HIS best friend being followed around. I know this is probably a very minor thing, but it's still annoying an' feels like an indication that 'Boruto' won't treat its girl characters any better than 'Naruto' did.

      Was Boruto blushing as 2nd-hand embarrassement (ya know, since Magire was definitely embarrassed by being put on the spot) or does he have a crush on Sumire too? I hope it's the former, since he'd definitely be just like his dad if he ends up together with the shy girl of his class. I don't want him liking Sarada romantically either, but Boruto dating Sumire really would make him feel like a cheap copy of Naruto. Preferably, there'll be 0 romance but I doubt the writers will go with that. Lets hope they'll at least pick any girl Boruto's age whom ISN'T Sarada or Sumire for him...

      The Academy shenanigans part of the Episode made it feel like a friendly version of a horror movie. :D

      Magire's a creep, but his abilities are really cool. ...An' have huge abuse potential, as shown in the Episode. Another with such potential is creative application of Tree-Walking.

    • @Hadrian75*.Well I think Boruto just showed Hinata's shy side.

      And I guess the seried would probably just try to confuse us with who the main character finally stays with.

      Now, I don't want to start a discussion about this, but it's most likely that Sarada going to have a crush on Mitsuki like Tsunade with Oro and Sakura with Sasuke. Now it would weird and akward for their family but it'll work(I guess) and anyways there's pratically no other canon academy girls other than Sarada and Chocho, so it's very,very unlikely of such a thing to happen.

      Anyways I liked Magire's ability too, I mean it seemed as if all those academy students would have gotten killed if he wasn't talk no jutsud into stopping. His potentiel is amazing, and his jutsu seems to be of the shinobi who attacked Kakashi and Obito when they were kids.

      Well this creature is obviously growing on and on with possibly other shinobi's emotion and Chakra.

      And I too didn't like the part where the girls seemed to have no idea but Boruto being the only guy to say. Well I hope this just stays as non canon thing only.

    • I'm not sure Boruto keep telling to his friends about what he can see inside someone's body are purple that means he can see with his one eye. that reason, people doesn't believe or know about his eye. I'm sure Hinata already told Naruto about Boruto act weird that because of his experience new for his one eye. Naruto might figure it out about investigation about what happened. They might assume it's true or false story. It's my therapy. that why It's more different types of his one eye When? Where is his one eye from?. I just figure it out myself to study about his eye of connect Kurama or Byakyun (I'm sorry kept dispelling).

      Yeeeah... Pretty sure Tsunade never liked Oro in the romantic way & BlazeRelease actually meant Dan.

      To Gokusopk: I liked this Episode too, but only coz of Chocho an' that it was shown how certain jutsus can be abused.

    • Yeah I might have been wrong, but I think I seen something like Tsunade being impressed by Oro in the anime at their childhood but I guess it might have been a Rin and Kakashi situation rather than Sakura and Sasuke situation. But anyways, the main team member doesn't always get the girl he wanted, also the girl probably would fall in love with someone else and I think (while it's weird) Mitsuki and Sarada could be a thing lol. Considering then Mitsuki will probably take in the Uchiha name, and Oro would be too proud to see his son marry a Uchiha lol.

      Well I also liked the idea of how the jutsus like that can be abused(I wonder what Jiraya would give for such a jutsu lol). Anyways it brings on how the new world is starting to create more creepier(well he was) less noble shinobi though.

      Well these are all my own hinest opinions.

      Utakata is not an anime-only character. He is a character created by Kishimoto and appeared on the cover of chapter 420. That chapter was released before the filler arc with Utakata.

    • Okay, my bad. Then, Utakata is actually a canon character from the manga who was developed further in the anime filler.

No guards either. No sensory shinobi realize anything is going on? I could go on with everything wrong with this episode and the series so far, but it feels pointless cause all this is now is a cash cow for the Naruto/Boruto owners.

      Boruto is the only one who can see the chakra. Meaning that it can't be sensed apparently. Not that it matters, since sensing is mostly an active skill (just check the Gokage summit arc). What passive sensing exists is mostly short-ranged.

      So by the time a teacher wonders why a bunch of kids are hanging out on the roof, the events that transpired are over. Plus given that this is a ninja school where people have skills in Shunshin and such, kids hanging out on the roof ought to be common (and not something that people can do much about). Considering that kids also tend to play games and have a creative mind, and trying to police what they do is mostly a big waste of time.

      So no, it's not weird that the teachers don't notice an undetectable chakra. The Nue Boruto summoned WAS noticed but apparently further investigation didn't return any results. Besides Naruto is now aware of strange possessions, and considering the spike of people with low chakra in the hospital was noticed, it's probable that at least some people were aware of the encounters from the very start. But since the possessions do not give other lasting effects, it's gonna be hard to prove anything less than ordinary happened.

      Which is also why the kids don't tell anyone: Bunch of people behaved strange, but leave no evidence of possessions. The much more likely option (kids got into a fight and make up stories) would be believed in stead.

    • Let's be real. Boruto being the only one able to see them is dumb. Buroto being another durn child of prophecy is stupid it didn't need to happen again it's what kinda ruined Naruto. It also feels weird since it didn't seem like he had it when the movie happened until after he fought those guys which was when he was taking the CE. This new show takes place during academy years so it doesm't add up to me.

      People chased Naruto all the time when he was doing bad things. So they should be keeping an eye on freaking pre-teens with magical powers and weapon skills cause they can do major damage.

      The not telling adults is a tired cliche that has been old since the Goonies. The fact they just forgive people for going nuts and attacking people is dumb too. Shino would be in a prison or a straight jacket if they had any sense. Or the village would be looking at the Yamanaka clan thinking they were messing with people. The anime should be a slice of life or something, not whatever it is now.

      I don't think so. If everyone could see and senses it, then the Dark Chakra would be completely useless.

      Except there is no prophecy, not really. Toneri suggests great things are coming that he can help, whereas Momoshiki's words suggest Boruto is the reason it all goes to hell. A good prophecy can do a LOT for the story when it's not being played painfully straight, like with Naruto. Some of the greater stories involve prophecy and how to use it well. Probably my favorite story of prophecy is Oedipus Rex.

      The eye so far only responds to the Dark Chakra. It could simply be that Boruto doesn't figure out how to control it until later. Kakashi needed some 10-20 years to use Mangekyou. Besides, this was obviously set up this way: The Manga about his post-movie years and the Anime about his pre-movie years, so they won't run into this endless meaningless filler problem. with coordination between the writers, the Anime can be meaningful.

      It would basically mean keeping an eye on every single kid all the time.

      Ancladar wrote: The not telling adults is a tired cliche that has been old since the Goonies.

      It's Truth in Television. I've got two nephews, and if they told me some fantastical story, i'm gonna assume they made it up. Kids fantasize all the time.

      Ancladar wrote: The fact they just forgive people for going nuts and attacking people is dumb too. Shino would be in a prison or a straight jacket if they had any sense.

      We haven't seen much of that yet. We don't know what happened to the others. We know the kids are aware that the attackers were being possessed so they'd forgive them. Naruto is now aware people are acting weird and losing chakra. Shino claims to have been possessed, which Naruto saw before so i don't see why he'd be in a straight jacket.

      Naruto/Boruto isn't western, and it's still not set in modern times. Our laws or sense of justice doesn't apply.

      Naruto was also a shonen series. Making Boruto slice of life would be the surest way to destroy any interest, since Slice of Life fans wouldn't expect it in Boruto and Naruto fans would want what they came for, IE battles.

    • Thanks for clarifying! The whole thing makes a lot more sense now.


      So far, the show an' characters are pretty great. It was an interesting & refreshing twist that Iwabe, rather than forming a Naruto-vs-Sasuke style rivalry with Boruto, became his friend instead.

      Boruto's personality makes sense considering he's the elder child of the Hokage, but I wish there'd be more of Himawari for contrast on how the 2 sibllings deal with Naruto being so busy 24/7.

      Sumire, Sarada, Shikadai and Inojin are okay so far. Not particularly spectacular, but not boring or cliche either.

      Metal and Chocho are hilarious plus very much their own characters rather than Next Gen. copies of their parents.

      Mitsuki is mysterious, an' there is plenty of room for him to grow into the boy we saw in the Movie.


      Thoughts?

      Uhm... Naruto specifically says he believes Boruto.

      Naruto also isn't a bad dad. He's fine. I've seen bad dads, compared to them Naruto is father of the year. There's stuff to work on for him, but there ALWAYS is. There's always more time to spend, there's always more to do, to say, to want.

    • Naruto is an absentee dad but he ain't a bad one, it's just the job of running a village tends to keep you busy and besides had the Boruto manga and anime not decided to treat the loyal fans like dribbling idiots and recap pre-movie stuff nobody wanted or asked for we could be seeing father-son bonding post movie by now in these episodes but nooooooo we have to endure another movie recap because clearly anime watchers have short term memory loss.

    • You're right about Naruto, but I for one am glad they're starting from when Boruto is in the Academy since the story itself so far is AWESOME. We're introduced to the characters properly an' see their friendships grow (so hopefully no need for excessive amounts of flashbacks).

        Loading editor
    • To be honest it's all a hit and miss for me, if they wanted to put Boruto in an academy setting, they could have at least done it in a post movie setting. I know, technically Boruto would have graduated by then but they could have come up with some BS about extra curriculum if the creators really needed some Academy action besides it's not like it would be unrealistic for the Academy to operate differently than it did during Naruto's generation.

    • So far I can't help but dislike sumire. She's bland, and her outfit is really bizarre. It's like this schoolgirl out fit but with shorts, I guess, because she's like studious or something? Whatever. It looks out of place as hell and Sumire is a bit of a mary sue. I hoped this episode would have changed my view on her but no such luck. However we did get to see a lot more of cho cho in this episode, and she's great. She's a bit silly and dramatic, but you can gather that she does have strong values that she sees through in her own Cho Choey way from this episode.
