Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is getting close to the end of the Mitsuki arc and seems like we’re in for a big fight in the upcoming episodes. Boruto and Sarada sorted things out with Garaga recently, and now they’re going to be headed straight for Mitsuki. Making it out of Ryuchi Cave was very hard in the first place, but it is not like much has changed for them after leaving there.
Mitsuki is still nowhere to be found, and they’re miles away for him. At least they know where he is headed to now. Even then, Mitsuki is not going to be easily caught up to. He has several Jounin level ninjas with him. According to spoilers for Boruto, one of the Jounin level Ninjas will soon come to stop Boruto and the others in their way. This is necessary because they cannot let their plan to be foiled. I think the next episode will be very interesting, and for me, Shikadai will be a central figure.
The reason I believe that is because Shikadai is a strategist. In order for Boruto and Sarada to get to Mitsuki, they need the fastest possible route, and the best possible tactic to avoid being taken by surprise. Shikadai needs to devise a new plan, and they’ll soon begin their journey to catch up to Mitsuki. I also think that Konoha might send in backup very soon. They need people to catch up to Boruto for the sake of protection.
So, I don’t think Naruto will just let kids take on this mission. At the other end, the enemies might also retaliate by sending a strong enemy to eliminate those who are following. We will have an incredible battle on our hands, and this is going to be the interesting part of this arc, in my opinion.
