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.

Finally caught the episode. We’re the flashbacks from a movie? I think the animation was better and smoother. If you were in a theater, you probably felt Naruto’s pain getting one-shotted by little Himawari. That day, he and Boruto learned not to piss her off.

Cute bonding episode with father and son, with a eating contest between Choji and Chocho thrown in. Oh, and Hinata owns the ramen-eating record at Ichiraku’s. Odd, but cute.

Uchiha family drama as Sarada wonders both whether Sakura and Sasuke are really married and if Sakura is really her mother. And Mitsuki has Chocho totally pegged.

All the ninja kids are training/bonding with their fathers...all of them except Sarada, that is. She feels sad.

Nice to see that Sakura hasn't changed much. Still inappropriately violent, still screwing up.

Basically, this is the first season finale of South Park, only Sarada knows who her dad is. No, she's doubting if Sakura is her mom. Given her first spotlight episode with the Ino/Sakura conversation, we know Sakura and Sasuke were (*snicker*chortle*) a couple at one point. But the mother might be the nutty red-headed chippie from Team Taka.

Cute scenes of father/kid bonding to drive under Sarada's nails. As much as I like Chocho, Sarada would have within her rights to throttle her. "He's not your dad?!? You're both heavy! You both can do Partial Expansion!! I know you might be Best Girl, but that's only because the most noteworthy female genin are me, you, and the purple-haired one we keep calling 'Class Rep'!!"

Nice to see Rock Lee is every bit as kooky an instructor as Might Guy was. And Metal looks like he wants to make him happy.

I knew it! Sasuke is a hermaphrodite! Now all we need is Sadara yelling "MY FATHER IS NOT ON THE COVER OF MAKE-OUT TACTICS 4!"

Realization: Chocho is basically Lumpy Space Princess.

Oh, and Sarada finally meets her dad. . . and he thinks she's the enemy. In his defense, he encountered a weirdo kid with the Sharrigan . . . as did Sarada. On the bright side, Naruto went into Hyper Orange God Mode for the first time in this series. Apparently, he and Kurama can chat each other up now.

Did anybody else think Boruto was lying about giving lunch to his dad, and that it was an exploding package or something as mischievous?

Did you watch "200" and/or "201"? It would've been loads funnier if Comedy Central hadn't aired the latter episode just the one time, and that I missed it. I wound up having to watch years later on a DVD. Oh, and great image of Sasuke on the cover of the local version of porn.

Saw last week's episode. Naruto and Sasuke are scary powerful. Sarada still has questions about her parentage. Sasuke is still catnip to teen girls, if Chocho is any indication. And while there's a chance Sakura might not be Sarada's mother, she is her mom. Seriously, the big guys are getting thwarted by a guy who take Danzo's love of Sharrigan collection to the next level, and she just bum rushes him. Beautiful.

Based on what we've seen so far, I'm going to guess that the bad guy has been cloning himself, and I don't mean Shadow Clones. That would explain the army of identical children. It would also explain where he's been getting all of his extra Sharingan eyes despite the scarcity of Uchiha.

"Sarada . . . Sakura Haruno is NOT your mother!!!!!!" Cue audience "wiling out" and Sarada sobbing, as pips (for lack of a better terms) pop up in her developing Sharingan. Also, Orochimaru is alive, and Naruto and Sasuke are not trying to kill him

Poor Sarada. I'm guessing that Sasuke loves Sakura . . . or at least has feelings beyond "meh." Either Sakura is/was infertile, or Karin died as she gave birth to Sarada, her final act of loyalty for her eternal crush. Maybe both.

Anyway, Shin Uchiha is one of Orochimaru's old "friends," so the gang is going to play him a visit and rescue Sakura. Chocho is going with them because why not at this point? She's not that self-centered . . . she did offer potato chips to Sasuke and Sarada to try and break the tension

Flipped around tonight. Saw bits of tonight’s episode. Turns out Karin handled the umbilical cord, so Sakura is probably is Sarada’s mother. Sarada having monster strength seals the deal. Also, it turns out the guy who comforted a sick Chocho . . . was Choji. But she wasn’t being totally dramatic, because Choji had lost a lot of weight at that time, and he different from his plumper self. Y’know, the whole food pill/butterfly thing he did in the Sasuke Rescue arc.

Some really nice animation in the latest episode. Sakura's fight with Shin is worth a re-watch in slow motion. Watch carefully and you can see where she places the explosive tag on the column before she throws it.

Now that Kabuto has a new family of Shins, does that include the giant one?

Nice to see that the only ninja in existence who has any common sense is now the Kage of the Hidden Cloud Village. Recall that back when he was one of the ninja who had to chase after Killer Bee in Shippuden, he decided to go downstairs and use the front door instead of leaping out of the window.

Man, Gaara looks so adult now. I think it's the voice . . . both him and Naruto had the same voices as kids, but the gravely tone works better for a grown man.

I feel bad for Boruto, even though he's a brat. Everything Naruto did was on a path to become Hokage. I don't think having kids was in his original mission statement. Also, you figure an epic ninja war really distracted him from the full impact of Hinata confessing her love for him.

Thinking about Sarada volunteering Boruto to lead the field trip, while he's gagged and suspended upside-down . . .

Imogen: Wow, Sarada! That took a lot of guts!

Sarada: (slight blush) Thanks . . . but it was just to tick him off.

Shikadai: No, what Imogen means is that we've given Boruto responsibility. BOR-U-TO.

Sarada: Wait, you think I made a mistake?

Denki: Don't sweat it! All we did was try to make him responsible. Aside from Shino-Sensai leaning on him harder, it's figurehead position.

Sarada: You're right. There's no way this could backfire on us!

[cut to black; "Temptation Sensation" plays, as the title card appears: "Boruto Gets His Entire Class Killed"]

Did anyone else have trouble understanding the ninja who used wires to tie up the Misukage? Her squeaky voice is near unintelligible to me.
