Boruto Naruto Next Generations delivered yet another solid episode. It seems week after week, it is getting better. Although not quite at the level of Naruto yet, I think Boruto has been good for the past month and having read the manga, I can say that things will only get better from here onwards. Boruto’s latest episode was very interesting, with the final round of the Chunin Exams finally beginning. Previously, we saw a 3v3 team exam where one team had to steal the flag of the other while defending their own. Boruto’s Team 7 barely made it, and Boruto had to resort to cheating to achieve this.

In the new episode, we saw Boruto Uzumaki fight against Yurui. To begin with, I have to say that Yurui was impressive to me. I know he was defeated in a lame manner, but Boruto Uzumaki did have to cheat. Furthermore, Yurui didn’t even use his full power again Boruto, again implying that the fight didn’t go as it should’ve. Moving on, the bits from the rest of the characters were really interesting, and Sarada being able to finish a fight in just 3 seconds really stood out. We got to see an action-packed episode. I really liked the quality of the episode. However, the pacing was fast; a little too much for my liking.
The next episode will see the next round of the final exams begin, and we will likely see Boruto Uzumaki go up against Shikadai Nara. If you’ve watched the movie, you would know that Boruto Uzumaki cheated in his exam be Shikadai as well. This is where he got disqualified and Momoshiki Otsutsuki made his appearance. However, it seems the anime is going to go down a different path. Even if Boruto gets disqualified, the Chunin Exams will go on for a little longer it seems. We’ll get to see Hidden Leaf be Hidden Sand in episode 60, and Episode 61 will focus on Mitsuki vs Shinki. I really like that they’re doing this, and it would make the Genin stand out a bit more than they did in the movie. Really impressive stuff overall, and I’m pleased that the anime is finally getting good.
