"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" upcoming episode on Sunday, January 13 is going to be an exciting one. In the video preview of the episode, I can admire the protagonists, Boruto Uzumaki and Sarada Uchiha, engaged in a duel that promises to be interesting.

Disappearance of Mitsuki

Studio Pierrot's anime, based on the sequel manga by Naruto and created by Kishimoto in collaboration with Mikio Ikemoto and Ukyo Kodachi, has now entered the narrative arc relating to the disappearance of Mitsuki, the third member of Squadra 7 together with the protagonist and to Sarada and led by Konohamaru Sarutobi.


The last episodes have confronted us with some shocking truths, the initial betrayal of the old Oonoki, the revelations about his past that have unveiled the motivations and the disappearance of a character that has shocked the fans. Now, in the next episode, the two young ninjas from the Leaf Village will have to face a formidable adversary, Kirara.

The kunoichi is able to use a sort of puppet technique that blocks the movements of Boruto and Sarada, allowing them to be used just like dolls. The situation is not the rosiest for the two heroes, who are preparing to face a truly deadly battle.

As already mentioned, "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" is back next Sunday in simulcast on Crunchyroll. I remind you that in February the anime will propose three episodes inspired by the novels of the trilogy Naruto Shinden.

Fans are upset

Meanwhile, during the last episode of "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" aired, fans have witnessed a scene that has affected many of them with the great emotional charge and the dramatic nature of the circumstances. Let's find out what it is and what characters are involved.


"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" is rapidly coming to the top both in narrative and emotion in the climax of its current narrative arc. In the last episode, the number 88, fans witnessed the strenuous battle of Team 10 against the fearsome Kokuyo, the construct created for the purpose of guiding the Akuta army created by the Rock Village.

Kokuyo is really a tough one for the young leaf ninja, and in his clash with Inojin Yamanaka, he leads his opponent almost to the brink of the abyss. Just at the moment of the coup de grace that was about to break this promising young lever, what was his little friend during this adventure in search of Mitsuki, the mysterious creature that responds to the name of Akkun, stands between the two contenders.

Unfortunately, Akkun sacrifices himself to save the life of Inojin, with a goodbye that broke the hearts of many of the fans: in his last moment, just before he died, the curious being's last words, uttered the name of his friend. Inojin remains crying to mourn his loss unless he returns soon to fight to help his team and not to render the sacrifice that just happened as useless. Many believe this is one of the saddest moments of the entire animated series "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations."
