Boruto anime has been in the midst of the firing line after delivering one poor episode after another. We got a pointless Mitsuki arc, Chōchō arc, Jugo arc and now a couple of awful Mitsuki episodes. So, the adaptation of Konoha Shinden has come as a welcome relief for some of the fans.
Most fans expect this arc to be action packed but sadly this novel doesn’t contain some serious action. The titles of episodes 106 to 110 have been confirmed. This also confirms that Konoha Shinden adaptation will take longer than 110 episodes. Episode 106 is titled “Steam Ninja Scrolls: An S Rank Mission”, episode 107 is titled “Steam Ninja Scrolls: A Battle Between Dogs And Cats”, episode 108 is titled “Steam Ninja Scrolls: The Phantom Inn, episode 109 is titled “Steam Ninja Scrolls: Potato Chips And A Huge Rock and episode 110 is titled “Steam Ninja Scrolls: The Reviving Hot Springs”.
Boruto episode 106 will confirm the start of Konoha Shinden light novel adaptation. In this episode, we’ll see Mirai Sarutobi who is a cousin of Konohamaru and the daughter of Asuma Sarutobi. We’ll see that she has been assigned to escort the sixth Hokage of Konohagakure Kakashi Hatake and Might Guy on their long-awaited vacation between the border of the land of fire and land of water.
Mirai Sarutobi will be told by Nanadaime Naruto it is an S Rank mission but in reality, she just has to escort these legendary shinobi of Konohagakure in their trip. So, this will sort of disappoint her a bit.
Also, she’ll think that in today’s peaceful world the need for an actual shinobi is decreasing day by day. Little she knows what is awaiting her soon in the upcoming episodes of Boruto Naruto Next Generations.
Even though this light novel doesn’t contain much action but fans will appreciate watching Kakashi Hatake and Might Guy more than Chōchō and Mitsuki’s kitten on a weekly basis. I think that this new arc is going to be a breath of fresh air for the fans which is a sigh of relief as well.
We do not know when the manga of Boruto Naruto Next Generations will be adapted again until then the fans have to suffer because no Boruto content is better than Boruto manga. Momoshiki arc was clearly the brightest spot throughout all the episodes of Boruto Naruto Next Generations anime. Do tell us what your thoughts on Boruto episode 106 starting to adapt Konoha Shinden are in comments.
