Boruto and Shinki's road trip ends this week in a satisfying, but not very enjoyable way. After delivering Shukaku safely to the Hidden Leaf, Shinki rushes back into the desert to give Boruto a much-needed hand with Urashiki, who quickly glimpses the boys' guile. Although the duo initially seems to be outdone, Boruto's Jougan soon activates, allowing our heroes to predict their opponent's moves. Enraged, Urashiki vows to kill both boys, but before he can clear this threat, Sasuke appears at the scene and relieves Urashiki's hasty retreat. Days later, Boruto is released from hospital and is shocked to find that Shinki is already preparing to return to the hidden sand. Just as Shinki and Gaara want to board their train, Boruto arrives at the train station and punishes Shinki, whom he now considers a friend, for leaving without saying goodbye. However, he assures his new comrade that they will spend much more time together next time they visit.
The highlight of this week does not have many surprises in store, but the arc has neatly prepared the boys to achieve their victory, making their triumph over Urashiki particularly satisfying. Although their individual missions continue to conflict with each other, Boruto and Shinki can finally understand each other a little better and work effectively as a team. They not only manage to transport Shukaku to the Hidden Leaf, but also give the most powerful antagonist in the series a real run for his money. Since the boys are still a genius, it makes sense that they can not put Urashiki permanently out of service, but they still manage to push him to the edge of the abyss.
That does not mean, of course, that Boruto and Shinki are now bosom friends. In a moment that feels both deserved and full of character, Shinki smiles a little after Boruto calls him a friend and says goodbye to him, but they still have a long way to go, until their friendship is at the same level her fathers is & # 39 ;. Given the stunt that Boruto had during the Chunin trials, the fact that Shinki is ready to give him a chance speaks for himself. (Boruto, who offered Shinki a formal apology for his antics at the Chunin Exam, would also have been satisfactory, albeit somewhat uncharacteristically.)
Boruto's latest adventure was not without success, although there was some meandering and wheel turning. There were a number of entertaining action sequences – especially Boruto's and Shinki's showdown with Urashiki – and characters we have not talked to for some time could enjoy the limelight. Boruto or Naruto develop an unpleasant friendship with someone who seems to be their opposite. This is not the most original reason for this franchise but since it is essentially incorporated into the DNA of the Naruto verse, this formula seems destined to be repeated. With dynamic action, rivals unifying against a common enemy, and a pinch of character progression, this bow manages to hold the landing despite its bumpy start.
