We’re just days away from Boruto Episode 78, and with each passing episode, things are getting more interesting. Last week we saw Garaga joining hands with Boruto, and they signed a summoning contract. I think this was a decent touch, and Garaga will definitely come in handy in the future of the Boruto anime. He seems like a powerful summoning, who can even hold his own against someone like Aoda.
Anyway, Boruto and the others went to the Great Snake Sage, who tells them the location of Mitsuki. Mitsuki himself is moving further and further away. So, Boruto will need to act quickly if he wants to catch up. Of course, things are much easier for him now. He knows where Mitsuki is, and just needs to follow him now. Thanks. There will be obstacles in the way, though. According to the spoilers, Mitsuki is headed towards the Hidden Rock.
Those who accompany Mitsuki are actually pretty strong as well. I know that they’re capable enough to hold their own against Jounin too. To think that they’ll stand in the way of Boruto and Sarada is absurd. They’re not at the level where they can take out such powerful enemies. However, they will need to step up their game and face off against them somehow. The spoilers also suggest that in order to shrug off the enemy, help arrives.
We don’t know who the person is. All we know is that they stall the enemy for long enough, and ultimately catch up to Mitsuki. This is where I think we’ll enter the final phase of the arc, and from here on out, I think it will wrap up within the next 3-4 episodes. I haven’t been the biggest fan of this arc, so this is like music to my ears.
Boruto will now air on Sundays, and Episode 78 will air on October 21, 2018. There are some unofficial sites like KissAnime that allow you to watch Boruto. However, please support the official release by streaming the episode over Crunchyroll, or Funimation and help the anime industry.
