Boruto anime is finally wrapping up its Mitsuki arc. The arc has divided opinion. Most of the fans including myself consider unnecessarily dragged. The arc should have ended last year but, for some reason, it has been dragged out. Some of the fans have defended the arc and I frankly don’t have a problem but, they are too soft and can’t take any criticization. Well, I guess it can’t be helped. Before we begin, I would like to warn you that this post is full of spoilers and if you don’t like spoilers then it is advised that you stop reading right now. With that out of the way, let’s begin.
In the previous episode, we saw Sarada and Boruto still fighting as they are still under Kirara’s genjutsu. Before the fight could end, Kirara had to go to see Kuu as he was getting a new heart. Kirara decided that she couldn’t miss this opportunity and she left Boruto and Sarada to fight.
At one point, it looked like that Sarada was going to die as Boruto was about to slash her with the sword (lol who are we kidding. It was never going to happen. Sarada opened her Sharingan and used the sword’s surface for the means of reflection. She undid the genjutsu and saved herself. Afterward, she released Boruto from genjutsu.
Now moving on to the next episode of Boruto. In the next episode, we will see that Kuu takes some heavy damage due to Mitsuki’s sudden attack. But, Kuu manages to successfully flee from the area. Boruto and Sarada try to chase after Kuu but Kirara is blocking their path. Sekiei is shocked to see Mitsuki acting like this especially after he considered Mitsuki to be his friend. Sekiei attacks Mitsuki but, Mitsuki doesn’t want to fight him.
he recklessly attacks Mitsuki. Mitsuki does not want to fight Sekiei. Mitsuki tries to stop Sekiei from attacking but Sekiei isn’t ready to listen.
The episode will be released on January 20, 2019
