So I guess Bengie's stash of gems was another unresolved plot point. And looks like he's dead after all.

I'd been expecting Kokuri to pull a heel-turn for almost the entire arc, but I admit I didn't see it coming in quite this way until Sai mentioned the Corpse Clone thing. So it was sad that Kokuri died, especially given how stupidly he was caught.

I guess the Celestial Prison was undoable just by getting doused in a lot of (sea?)water? So it seems easy enough for Shojoji to undo it by just following the kids' escape route and taking a dip along the way.

Weird to think that it took over a year and a half to get back to stuff covered in the manga, after the anime did its version of Boruto The Movie.

Inojin didn't seem all that hyped when Boruto gave him the second Naruto card, so it seemed weird that he didn't leap on the chance to sell it for a big payday.

I guess Amy is more forgiving of recycled plots than I am. This feels like the fourth or fifth time we've done this.

if Shojoji has taken on Yamaoka's appearance, there's a good chance the latter is dead

Unless they retcon the Clone Corpse jutsu to allow for him to just morph his appearance, Yamaoka has to be dead.

So if this is their first B-ranked mission, what was that whole prison deal at the start of this arc? Somehow that did not feel like a C-rank to me.

While I wasn't too sanguine about this small arc ending to the prison arc, they did finish it up in style. I was also dismayed that they didn't seem to bothered by Yamaoka's death, although Tento did seem upset by it last week.

I like the new OP and ED. And this is the cutest thing I've seen since Baby Yoda.



I love how he's watching Boruto for the moves and is about half a beat behind him.

Just me or it seems they are setting something up with Denki and the new Tsubaki. Iwabi suddenly has some competition, better step up his game.

Filler? Didn't creators themselves are confirmed that all of episodes are canon.

Filler doesn't need to be non-canon to still be filler. It's usually called that because it's just filling up episodes until the series moves on to its next actual arc. It's nice when filler actually feels like it's developing characters, and filler doesn't even need to be derogatory, but ultimately it's hard to say if team 15's development actually really matters.

Himawari acknowledges that ninjutsu is “fun” but states that she'd like to explore other career paths before making her final decision. (Come on, kid. You're, what, 10? It's high time you decided on a job!)


I just want to thank you. It's one of those rough days when you really need a good laugh, and you're comment was perfect. Very Happy

I knew they weren't going to show us, but I still wanted to see how the hell they got out of the well once they reached the top. Smile Of course, after watching them leap up that first obstacle course, I think they could've all just jumped out of the well.
