Episode 40: Team 7: First Mission!!
Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki have come together and formed ‘Team 7’. The three, led by Jonin Sarutobi Konohamaru, have received their first mission. The mission details the repelling of bandits who have been attacking a village, and making it so that they never come back again. Boruto and the others immediately depart for the village, and come face-to-face with a young woman named Kiri, who is the daughter of the village chief who had suddenly passed away and has inherited her father’s role, and the others who support her.
Episode 41: The Power of Unity
Ninja who were disguised as bandits have kidnapped Kiri. As Genin, Boruto and the others are not originally meant to be given missions that involve fighting other ninja. However, due to the pleading of the village and through Konohamaru’s judgement, Team 7 now has their mission changed from “Repelling Bandits” to “Rescue Kiri”.
Episode 42: The Work of Shinobi
Ever since their first mission, Boruto has been extremely unsatisfied with all the simple and plain missions they have received. It was to this Boruto that he and Team 7 received the mission to “capture the criminal who is holding up the bank”. Boruto is all fired up to be able to show off after such a long time. However after arriving at the scene, the criminal who faces them is just a weak man who was unfairly fired from his company recently.
Episode 43: The Appearance of the White Night Band!!
An event thought to have been caused by a group of bandits called the White Night Band has occurred at the Village of the Hidden Leaf. The White Night Band are “righteous theives”, who steal money and items of value from the rich, and give them to the poor, and have been through several villages. Although they are “righteous theives”, Boruto holds a strong dislike for them due to stealing from other people and involving people who are unrelated, and goes to seek Shikadai’s opinion. However, Shikadai says that maybe there are things that cannot be measured by good and evil.
Episode 44: Shikadai’s Doubt
No Summary Available Yet.
I knew it would take a while for Boruto to progress, the anime started out as a slice of life anime with a lot of school drama, family drama and Japanese fantasy associated with Ninjas and the typical Naruto themes we’ve all seen (power of friendship, fighting evil, sharingan, hokage, Jutsu’s, fights, etch) the Sarada arc was by far my favourite so far alongside the School trip arc and now the rest of the episodes. I believe the next few episodes will exceed my expectations… stay tuned.
