Boruto Episode 52 is already out and you can watch it, if you haven’t seen it yet. The episode marked the beginning of the Momoshiki Arc, which was highly appreciated by the fans. There are several reasons. One of the main reasons is the big changes between the story.
It has been revealed that the anime will have more details in the Momoshiki arc than what we saw in the manga or in the movie. This time around the Momoshiki arc will be much more detailed. One of the most notable inclusions is the story is the Third Ōtsutsuki.
Now, let’s move on to the review of the episode. The episode was nice overall. It had a good storyline. In the previous episode, Team Konohamaru had found a White Zetsu. Konohamaru informed his team that White Zetsu was a biological weapon which was created by Kaguya Ōtsutsuki.
Konohamaru also described the power of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. He told them Kaguya was on a totally different level.
Due to the notable difference in their power, Konohamaru advised Boruto, Sarada and Mitsuki to move out and inform the village about the location of the White Zetsu and about the relic of the Ōtsutsuki Clan.
But, all three of them refused and offered their aid to Konohamaru. After carefully analyzing the situation, Konohamaru agreed to take their help. In order to make up for the first failed attempt, they went in with a strategy that would definitely secure the victory for them.
Team Konohamaru soon engaged White Zetsu in combat and at the decisive moment, Boruto got carried away and tried to end the fight by himself. Boruto was caught because of foolishness, but Konohamaru and the others came to his rescue.
Towards the end of the episode, as Team Konohamaru went further in the cave, they encountered more White Zetsu but Sasuke had already taken care of them with his Amaterasu.
Konohamaru also told his team how Sasuke is the only person who is comparable to Naruto. This episode also showed Boruto’s admiration for Sasuke as Konohamaru labelled him as a “supreme Ninja.”
Towards the conclusion of the episode, Sasuke was shown going into another dimension. Also, we got a glimpse of Momoshiki and Kinshiki.
