I have mixed feelings on this one. I honestly can’t think of a whole lot to say on this episode. The scenario of them taking on a job that lets them wonder around to investigate seems a bit cheesy. Not like this is the first time we’ve seen this scenario in an anime or cartoon. The failed mail deliveries I could see coming a mile away. Of course that wasn’t going to go well for them.
This episode just sort of fell flat for me. It seemed more filler than anything. I can barely remember all the details that happened except for the failed mail delivers why they try to investigate “the ghost”. I wish I had more to say on this episode, but I just don’t. The past couple episodes I’ve been feeling like Boruto hasn’t been pulling at me like it has in the past. I’m starting to forget when it airs and forgetting to watch it (hence the late review). Hopefully the next episode will give me more to talk about.

I was looking forward to this episode. I was totally rooting for Boruto to prove to his dad that he did have the Byakugan. We’ve already seen him use it the last few episodes. It’s how they found out about the aura that’s been making people of the village act out of character. I didn’t expect Boruto to end up taking on his Aunt though! Hanabi is so different than Hinata. It was cool to see what kind of ninja she had grown up into.
Watching Boruto fight is fun for me to watch, personally. He’s incredibly quick and just when you think he’s lost the upper hand, he’s already two steps ahead. It’s quite obvious he has so much more natural talent than Naruto EVER did. Obviously, he gets that from his mother. Hinata is one of my favorite ninjas in Naruto. I always thought she was an incredible ninja while also having such a tender heart and soul. She’s such an introvert compared to Naruto who most of the time wouldn’t know when to shut up. LOL. It was heart breaking to watch the disappointment in Boruto when his Byakugan didn’t manifest. What was admirable was how he brushed it off in front of everyone and laughed at himself. That definitely came from his dad.
It was a relief to hear Boruto’s grandpa and Naruto discuss his byakugan and agreed that Boruto does indeed have it. I was so worried Naruto would continue to think Boruto was just making it up but thankfully he could tell he was being honest while watching him put everything he had into the sparing match. Cameron did bring up a valid question though. In past episodes it seemed he was able to manifest it himself but how come he suddenly can’t when he’s not in the middle of a dire situation? I’m theorizing maybe stress or something has something to do with it. If he’s feels threatened or feels someone is being threatened, he’s able to manifest it?
I’m thinking my theory may be close to the mark since he was able to sort of use it with his fight with that TV star. I’m not sure what to make of that scene. It was a little silly and out of the blue. It was a little funny but I just felt it wasn’t totally necessary. There could have been a different way they could have done that. It was awful just, eh.

I have mixed feelings about this episode. It started out pretty cute when Boruto had that dream and then suddenly came down with 8th Grader Syndrome (if you don’t know what that is, click here). LOL I loved seeing the relationship between him and his little sister Himwari (i think i spelled that right?). I thought she would be completely enthralled with him when he was acting weird but nope, she was fully aware he was acting weird. Haha.
It didn’t hit me that Naruto didn’t know about Boruto’s Byakugan yet. I felt frustrated that Naruto didn’t really believe him. Wasn’t a huge fan of that. I didn’t see the need to make Naruto to be out a typical parent. Thats the thing about different generations is they grow and learn from previous generations. I mean, sure, Naruto grew up without parents, but still. He was surrounded by enough adults! That’s just my opinion, anyway. I didn’t blame Boruto for getting defensive at all. We’ve been seeing him use his kekkei genkai for the past few episodes now so we know he’s telling the truth.
I did not expect Hiashi to be such a grandpa though. That was cute to see this hard ass soften up around his grandchildren. I will give Naruto credit, at least he’s taking Boruto to Hiashi to double check his kekkei genkai instead of just writing him off as making it up. Boruto has a lot of natural talent so I’m looking forward to what we will see next episode!
