The Shounen is a genre that will never go out of style in the anime universe. And one such anime is Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. At first, people didn’t like the anime because of how the characters behaved and interacted. But with time and character development, people started liking it. As the title suggests, this anime follows the story of Boruto Uzumaki and his friends. With more than 200 episodes and counting, the show has only scratched the surface of what it’s going to be. In this article, we will be talking about what episode does Sarada meets Sasuke. Along with that, we will also look into the story leading up to the event.
Boruto was first released in April 2017. It is produced by the same animation studio as Naruto, Studio Pierrot. The story is set roughly 10-12 years after the war in the Hidden Leaf Village. It was a surprise to everyone to see the Hidden Leaf become so technologically advanced within a decade. But we do like the new Konoha. The story revolves around the title character, Boruto, and his friends and their journey through it all. Currently, the anime is at a major point as Kawaki is finally free of Ishiki Otsutsuki’s Karma mark. However, Boruto still bears his given to him by Momoshiki. But that is for some other time, right now, let us look at what episode does Sarada meets Sasuke?
Story Leading Upto The Event
Sarada Uchiha is the daughter of Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno. She has inherited the Sharingan from her father and monstrous strength from her mother. Chunin Exams were announced, and all of the parents started training their children for the same. Only Sarada was alone without a father to teach her. She tried asking Sakura for answers as to where is Sasuke and when will he return. To which Sakura had no answers. However, Sarada had not given up yet. She went to the library to research more on his dad and the Uchiha Clan. When Sarada requested additional information on her father, access to it was restricted for obvious reasons.
Disappointed, she yet again asked her mother only this time, Sakura got a little irritated and punched the ground hard. This resulted in their house collapsing. And she, too, fell unconscious. Shizune came with a few medical ninjas and took her to the hospital while Sarada stayed to salvage some important things from the debris. She picked up the family frame and noticed that there was a photo of Sasuke with his old group, Kara.
Sarada now had more questions than answers, and the only person she could trust was Naruto. She went by her office and overheard that he was meeting with Sasuke. She decided to follow him and Chocho tagged along to find her real father. Luckily for them, Naruto left his lunch, and this gave them an excuse to follow him. On their way, they encounter a boy with Sharingan who called himself Shin Uchiha. He started attacking the girls and was about to kill Chocho when Naruto intervened. He quickly retreated, and Naruto asked the group to follow him as sending them back would be dangerous.
What episode does Sarada meets Sasuke? The answer to this is episode 21, titled Sasuke and Sarada. After Naruto asked Sarada and Chocho to join him, they started pacing towards Shikoro Pass. Just when they were close to it, Chocho was very tired, and she asked for a little bit of rest. To which, Naruto agreed and asked Sarada to put her bag down and relax for a while. However, Sarada was excited, and seeing how close she was to seeing her father for the first time in years, she excused herself, telling that she had to use the toilet. And went ahead to the Shikoro Pass.
Upon entering the Tower Pass, her Sharingan awakens, and she sees Sasuke standing in the corner. But his demeanor changes, and he quickly attacks her, thinking that she is also with Shin. Sarada was terrified and was on verge of crying. As he was about to grab her, she shouts out “Dad”, upon hearing which he stopped. And this is how Sarada first meet Sasuke. She immediately began asking him about where has he been and when will he come back. To which he replies, it is not her concern, and she should stay out of it. The episode continues as Sakura comes looking for her and is instead taken away by Shin. However, the group ends up defeating the fake Uchiha.
To summarize the question, what episode does Sarada meets Sasuke? She meets him in episode 21 of Boruto. At first, she thought his father was a bitter man and did not care about either her or her mother, Sakura. But as the episode progresses, she realizes that Sasuke and Sakura do share a special bond, and the proof of their love is Sarada herself. This was a changing point for Sarada’s character as she finally realized that what his dad is doing is important, and even though he stays away all the time, he loves Sakura and Sarada.
