Hey guys. Boruto episode 48 will be coming out later today. With the release of Boruto episode 47, the Byakuyadan arc came to an end. The arc received mixed reviews from the fans. Based on my knowledge, most fans liked the arc as it gave more screentime to the other characters of the Next Generation. The focus of the arc was Shikadai Nara. Shikadai is more or less like his great father, Shikamaru. He can be called a carbon copy of his father, however, this arc gave us the faintest idea that despite looking the copy of his father, Shikadai is actually a bit different from his father. Shikadai Nara is a good character, and he will only improve later on in the series. Another highlight of the arc was the appearance of a person, who could use the Ice Release. This really takes me back to the Haku and Zabuza arc in Naruto. Throughout the entire Naruto series, there was just one character who possessed the Ice Release Kekkei Genkai. So, it was a really nice touch to introduce the Ice Release again. Now moving to the spoilers of Boruto episode 48.
Boruto Episode 48 will be the beginning of the new arc. This arc will be about the Chunin Exams. The episode will be focusing on Team 5, which consists of Denki Kaminarimon, Iwabee Yuino and Metal Lee. In Boruto The Movie, we didn’t get to see Iwabee or Denki. Only Metal Lee was shown. He fought against Shinki from the Hidden Sand. The episode will primarily focus on the three and their teamwork. Iwabee is one of my personal favorites. He is a unique character. Iwabe and Denki make a good team but I’m not sure how Metal Lee would fit in with them. It will be a nice little build up to the Chunin Exams. Also, the Momoshiki arc is beginning in the first week of April. So, there isn’t much time left. There are several other characters who weren’t introduced in the movie but, the anime will cover up for that. We already know that the story for the anime will be different compared to the movie and the manga. So, it is worth looking forward to. The appearance of Urashiki in particular is making me excited.
Do you think Iwabee is the strongest character from the Next Generation? Let me know in the comments section below.
