Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

Recommended Posts

The next generation sequel to Naruto and Naruto Shippuden. Please spoiler tag anything that hasn't aired in the U.S.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Latest episode: The class rep. turns out to be the mysterious bad guy! She unleashes a snake/tiger/ape monster that's going to suck all the chakra, and then detonate, destroying the village. Naturally Boruto wants to stop her without killing her.

The cold open, in brief:

Boruto: You know who's behind the Ghost stuff?

Mitsuki: Indeed. It is . . . the class rep.

Boruto: I KNEW IT WAS YO- . . . wait, what?

Mitsuki: She was present in most of the cases of outbursts. She may have feigned injury to throw any suspicion off of her.

Boruto: But . . . she's the class rep! She couldn't possible be the cause! She makes my mother at her age look like my mother as she is today!

Mitsuki: I'm going to ask you: how well do you know her? What is her name?

Boruto: It's . . . it's . . . .oh, shit . . .

Mitsuki: [waiting patiently]

Boruto: Class . . . Rep . . .

Mitsuki: [facepalm]

Boruto: [sweatdrop] Kun. Class Rep-Kun.

Mitsuki: Right. You're lucky you're the protagonist, and that me and Sarada will be put on the same squad as you to make sure you don't act like your father did at your age.

Boruto: Wait, why would we be teamed up?

Mitsuki: Boruto, do you even watch the opening credits? Why do you think we are grouped together.

Boruto: Huh. Now that you mention it, it would've made more sense to have us kids fooling around in general, especially since Sarada hasn't had much screentime.

Mitsuki: Mysteries do abound.

Another mystery: how can you tell how much older ex-Hokage Kakashi has gotten with the same hair and mask? It's also funny that he has the mask etched on his portrait on Hokage Rock.

Downside: Naruto getting into his Flaming Orange God Mode, only for Kakashi to wave that off. With all the filler over on Naruto, it'll be ages before we naturally progress to that.

@Sandman87 . . . is it too nitpicky if I try to have the title changed to "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations"?

I wave my magic doohickey and make it so.

"For the love of Ninja Jesus, 'Class Rep' is my position! Does anyone know my name?!? And yes, I'll take 'Unleasher of Deadly Legendary Pokemon'!"

Boruto takes at least one kunai to the side preventing Mitsuki and Sumire from attacking each other. The acorn didn't fall that far from the tree.

At this point I'm ready for them to kill off Boruto and rename the show Mitsuki. He's a much more interesting character.

Hey, its Adult Rock Lee! And he’s still insane! Naturally, he’s Metal’s father. The way the kid looks, I’d expect Rock had reproduced asexually, because they look alike. Also, any woman would probably be shook apart from the rigorous lovemaking.

I wonder if Rock Lee did a lot of "training" for sex. I wonder if he announced everything he was going to do before he did it. "Now I must do that 10,000 times in 10 minutes!"

Did we really need yet another after-school special moral about the importance of helping one another?

Didn't see the latest episode.  Last one I saw was Denki (not the electric kid from My Hero Academia) and Iwabee learning from each other and saving kids from a fire. I just figured that I should share this.

Not much time to talk. Anyone see Sarada’s little adventure? She’s the daughter of Sakura and Sasuke . . . and you can basically hear the loud record scratch, right? And apparently, her parents had at least one date, which didn’t last long. Also, Sakura looks the same except for the purple diamond on her forehead, which probably denotes a doctoral status. Ino mostly looks the same. Chocho continues to be Best Girl. At this early point in the series (still on the first opening credits), who else could it be?

Well, considering that they basically spoil that whole thing (which I previously called btw) in the closing credits, it's not much of a record scratch.

I suspect that "date" in this context means that Sasuke got lucky while he was unconscious from his injuries.

Tsunade has one of those diamond things too. When Pain attacked the village it turned out to be some sort of massive chakra storage thingy.

The latest episode starts with a flashback to the time that Boruto's little sister kicked both his and Naruto's asses. Eventually, father-son bonding occurs over ramen. Basically a breather episode, which makes me suspect that some kind of heavy drama is coming soon.
