    • He still looks young, so he most likely didn't stop taking other's people bodies. That is if he actually requires anymore to take them, since his latest vessel was that white zetsu who has that healing and life force factor. So either way, old age wouldn't be a factor. And even if it would be, Chioat 70 + could fight Sasori. Oonoki was pushing 80 and was the most impressive out of the 5 Kage. For most legendary shinobi, age is just a number.

    • Why are we even talking about Orochimaru's age? I thought that the entire point of his immortality techniques was to stay eternally young. So, he isn't going to lose any fighting abilities at all as long as he has a youthful body.

      Yea, but he has zig-zagged in age quite a bit. Right now is the youngest he's ever looked. Since he looks different from his Zetsu version, we can presume he made a Mitsuki (or equivalent) as his vessel, then made the second (adult) and third (child)

    • Apparently, (imo) Orochimaru proved to be a greater parent than even Naruto or Sasuke because of the way he let Mitsuki find his own path even after 5 failed attempts and didn't give up.

      Also this was the first we see orochimaru in sword fighting. Totally awesome!

      But the question remains that how did these guys pick Boruto to be his "sun"? I mean on what basis? How did they know about Boruto's nature before even meeting him?

      It's not that I object Boruto being the "sun" but they should have shown some interaction with him rather than just labelling him as "sun"

      Also, why couldn't they pick Sarada be the "sun" since Orochimaru was more interested in Sasuke than Naruto.

    • Actually, and non-exclusively dope. Those fight scene were The shit. But that mitsuki exaggeration tho 😑... How can a kid who just got shit on by fucking suigetsu even get on orochis lvl?? Like, if u gave fucking suigetsu senjutsu, he wouldn't have gotten on orochis lvl.. but if it's the the main character, anything's possible huh? There's no way that a sage transformation (not even sage mode btw) have made his power that much greater (jugos transformation at fullpower and with a kid's body put him right under the raikage in power, but orochi is currently stronger than that raikage, so boruto power scaling is fucking horrible and wanky as fuck)

      Who told you he was on orochimaru's level? I think you didn't understand what orochimaru wanted to do. He had no intention of fighting Mitsuki or even resisting him. Mitsuki just did what orochimaru wanted him to do so how could orochimaru resist him?

      Orochimaru wanted Mitsuki to get the scroll and make his own decisions about his life.

      Sasuke opened Orochimaru's eyes to other possibilities. Considering his plans with Mitsuki, and his "moon that illuminates the dark", it seems Orochimaru wants him to emulate Sasuke. And hence, Boruto should fill the role that Naruto once did for Sasuke.

      Although, Mitsuki's mission is to generally observe Konoha and learn to be a complete human. He mentions he trusts Sarada, so i would imagine he also observed what Sarada did.

    • @elvenora not its not. I used to think so too, but they are different. One needs training of the highest degree, while the other needs a kkg. Mitsuki cant have sm since he didnt do the training. He oy has the signs of sage trans (full body change, rage of sorts, incresing mass, etc)

    • That's the misunderstanding. It's still Sage Mode regardless if it requires a training or a kekkei genkai, Sage Transformation results in Sage Mode with physical changes added. Seelentau explained it a while back, as did I try to do so years back.

      Glad you think so. Who doesn't love Kakashi, just a simple guy trying to read his porn in peace and enjoy his retirement as well as being single. Potential maybe, but to be frank his character wasn't anything amazing, he should logically be deader than dead, he kind of looks ridiculous and the change from grumpy old man to villain is a little flimsy.

    • One thing I didn't understand, mostly because maybe I don't follow the manga is that 'Is Log and Mitsuki exactly the same being, like does Log have sage mode too, or is it that he is strong but Mitsuki is just a stronger version who hasn't come out of his shell yet"

      Oro's a cool guy, but you know, he still kind of controlled Mitsuki, by erasing his mind, again and again. Basically Sasuke could have done that with Sarada and Boruto with his Sharingan,(taking from hlwhat he did in the novel) but that would not be the right thing to do. But still he is cool.

      And Oro was the one who taught Sasuke to master swords, so it was to be expected.

      Like everyone else said, Boruto is Naruto's son. And if he has any bit of that magic Naruto had, then an innocent Mitsuki can find his path with him. Just like Sasuke found his true path by Naruto.

      I don't think he healed his wounds. He just merely washed the blood off with his water, the wound is still present there.

      Overall good episode. But I kind of found it, a bit too fast. I was actually expecting it to be about two episodes. But hey, it was a good episode.

      In fact, this episode had the potential to set up numerous future storylines with Orochimaru's experiments, but brushes past them and thus misses a great opportunity.

      No the wound disappeared, but that doesn't mean his water healed him. suigetsu's water could have had a healing ointment in it or washing the wound could have activated Mitsuki's normal healing

      Maybe he because he doesn't want to? Suigetsu mostly acts like he hates his teammates, yet he almost sacrifices his life to save them many times. I guess he just doesn't want to admit it. He kept on following Sasuke even when he knew he got abundoned. It shows how much the team(even if it's not any team from Konoha) means to him, as much as a second family. Considering everything, this team is the only family he actually has. Plus, I believe like Zabuza and the rest, he hates his village and won't like to follow someone other than Sasuke or within feat, Oro.

      I would really wish if Taka started to act as Sarada's aunts/uncles. Considering they all were close to Sasuke. It would be a great way to get those characters back into the show. And I always thought Karin and Suigetsu would end up together, considering their mutual disgust with each other close to what most animes do with some couples.

      @Action. Yeah I guess the wound did disappear. Maybe Suigetsu just washed the blood off and Mitsuki's healing system healed itself. Considering the blood will still be there, even if the wound doesn't get healed. So Suigetsu just washed it off?

      Well wasn't it sort of his excuse to stay with Sasuke? Jugo was loyal, and Karin was infatuated by Sasuke. And Suigetsu should have known that Sasuke has no interest in his goals. remember he sacrificed himself against Bee to save his friends thus foiling his goal for the swords.

      While Naruto had a negative opinion towards suigetsu, it was mostly due to Suigetsu stupidly ruining Sarada's and Sasuke's slready fragile bond.

      And anyway, he did arrive at the hidden mist village, withiut any need of Yamato following him. He could have tried his chance in stealing those swords that were now stolen. But he chose to help those kids. Basically, everyone turned nicer after Naruto fixed Sasuke, resulting in Oro, Karin, Jugo and Suigetsu who were following him within the war, be good people. And Suigetsu's wish of those swords were when he was sort of evil-ish. Just like Sasuke wanted to destroy the village, they turned, and their goals changed accordinally.

    • ...Not so much, no. Naruto talks like Taka are all troublemakers with no exception. And the other part is not even the point there. Suigetsu had goals. Dreams. And a fear of Orochimaru. Are we supposed to believe he just abandoned those things freely? The point is not 'whether Sasuke had any interest in Suigetsu's goals.' The point is that Suigetsu wanted those things. Continued to want those things well after the Killer B fight. (Also Yamato is assigned to follow Orochimaru, not other people whose abilities would make it pretty easy to sneak out anyway.)

      And Naruto reacts with disgust to Suigetsu. Not 'oh you personally messed up, you idiot', but 'you Taka have always been trouble.' Forgave Sasuke. Hasn't forgiven Taka.

      (Plus, Orochimaru is still not 'a good person.' He's just not openly acting against Konoha anymore.)

      The point is Naruto can't exactly judge people with how he feels about them. He is a leader, and they greatly helped in the war(Reviving Sasuke, reviving The kages, bringing back the hokages, fighting in the war) He has to put aside his feelings towards them and act as a Hokage should.

      Plus, Kakashi was the Hokage at that time. Taking all the above reasons I gave, I think they should be allowed free. Considering Kabuto became the head/caretaker of an orphanage and Chino and her groups that killed alot of innocent people weren't punished under the rule of Kakashi.

      And basically every crime Taka did(excluding Oro) was with Sasuke who was freed from his crimes and also got kind of covered up, so no would find about it. So shouldn't their own existence of crime be freed?

      In my opinion. Taka just stays there, because they like it there, Suigetsu was afraid of the old Oro, who was creepy and evil. This Oro, is a whole different person. These are all just my own opinions.

      And by 'just a group of thugs' you mean victims of Orochimaru and the general problems of the shinobi world, recruited by the guy they then proceeded to be astoundingly loyal to, risking their lives for him repeatedly? You know, the guy Naruto went to bat for and persuaded people that he ought to be forgiven? Gosh, it's almost like that guy's team-mates are being treated differently to him.

      If Taka are 'just a group of thugs' that makes Sasuke just a thug too. And yet he gets regarded differently...
