With the announcement of the beginning of the Naruto Shinden novels from Episode 93 onwards, we now know that the Mitsuki arc is coming to an end soon. This arc has had its ups and downs, but I expect it to get better from here onwards. The previous episode was incredible, and the action sequences in it we’re mind-blowing.
We have yet another incredible fight on our hands in the next episode as Boruto Uzumaki gets captured. To everyone’s surprise, the guy who ends up rescuing them is Shikadai Nara. Shikadai then allows Boruto Uzumaki to proceed to find Ku, while he and his team take on Kokuyou. Remember, they’ve already clashed once before, and Kokuyou was just too strong for them.
Could we see a similar showing in Boruto Episode 88? I don’t think so. In my opinion, Kokuyou will be dying in Boruto Episode 88 just like Kakou died in the previous episode. This time, it will be Shikadai at the center of the fight though. Meanwhile, we know that Kirara will appear in the way of Boruto Uzumaki and Sarada Uchiha, and they’ll have a fight of their own as well.
Unfortunately for Boruto and Sarada, Kirara is a great Genjutsu user, and they both get trapped in it completely. She then orders them to finish each other off, and we don’t know how they get out of this one. Boruto Episode 88 is going to be filled be great action moments. At the same time, we might find out what Konohagakure’s next move will be. Konohamaru will be there as well, so let’s see what ends up happening.
Boruto Episode 88 will air tomorrow, January 6, 2019. You can stream the episode on Crunchyroll.
