Hey everyone! Boruto Episode 82 aired today, and now we’re finally seeing the better parts of this arc. I think this episode was a significant improvement in Boruto Episode 81. But, the issue still stands. The Mitsuki arc is way too inconsistent.
I hope it manages to drop more decent episodes in the future and not experience yet another drop in quality. Boruto Episode 82 gave us a huge plot twist towards the end, and that was revealing Onoki as the true mastermind behind everything that has been happening in the arc.
He’s the reason why Mitsuki left the village, and he’s probably trying to revive his dead grandson for some reason. Ku turned out to be the son of Onoki, and that’s yet another shock to me. I have a few thoughts of my own here, and I think they may go against what you think.
It’s too early to make a comment about what’s been happening right now, but if they make Onoki into just another villain, I’ll lose it. Onoki changed his complete character after during the 4th Great Ninja War. He became a true legend; a war hero. Now, they’re just turning him into yet another villain as they did with Ao.
As I said, it’s too early to make a judgment, but if this is true, I don’t think I’ll like this arc even a bit because it goes against everything that the Onoki of Naruto stood for. Anyway, coming over to the spoilers of Boruto Episode 83, it seems Lord Ku will ambush Boruto Uzumaki and the others with an Army of Akuta. They will be forced to make a retreat, and also split up as a result of that. I think we may even see some short combat in the next episode, but I don’t expect it to be anything large-scale.
