You are watching: Boruto: naruto next generations episode 8
By Sam Stewart
“The comet has actually gotten in the constellation. The destiny of the stars, the moment for harvest is close to. And simply as I believed the essential to it all… is him.”This week’s episode of Boruto opens through these ominous words, however probably more ominous is the character that speaks them: Toneri Otsutsuki, the primary antagonist of the Naruto movie “The Last”. His sudden appearance raises a number of questions for this episode, and also the series. Is Toneri the perpetrator of the possessions? Or a bystander hoping to intervene for the better good? The show isn’t ready to answer that question simply yet, however it does seem to finally be laying the groundwork for Boruto to learn around his mysterious powers, and also whatever before evil they are trying to disclose to him.“A pearl-colored nightmare foretold my destiny” says Boruto, striking a cool pose hoping to impress his bewildered sister Himawari. Boruto has just awoken from a dream wright here a mysterious figure (who the viewer deserve to determine as Toneri) has told him he is the just hope against coming damage. Having spent the previous night contemplating his following relocate, this dream has provided him the confidence to confront his parents about his mysterious eye power.My first reaction to this series of events was a sigh of relief. It seems favor we might lastly figure out what is going on through Boruto’s eye, and also Toneri’s intervention may provide some clues about what is happening. Boruto is persuaded he has awakened to his Byakugan (feasible, considering his mommy Hinata is a princess from the Hyuga Clan), but his eye bears a greater resemblance to Toneri’s Tenseigan. Regardmuch less of the answer I’m simply happy to understand we will shortly uncover out, and also I applaud the writer’s decision to throw all of us for a loop by bringing in a character external of the traditional Naruto canon.Adding some humor to the episode is a running meta-commentary on the idea of a hero. The episode opens via Naruto and his friends watching a movie about a heroic ninja by the name of “Evil Jammer Kagemasa” who saves a group of children, teaching them the leschild that actions are louder than words. Once the movie is over Boruto interrupts his friends beaming admiration to state the movie is unrealistic, and heroic ninjas (like his father Naruto) are secretly uncool.However before, once Temari tells him he is “the star of hope” Boruto is quick to don a superhero visor of his very own and also begin dancing around his house, musing loudly around his importance. We share his family’s perplexed expression as we watch him make a fool of himself, seeing that Kagemasa’s advice has actually entirely gone over his head. This commentary on heroes goes rather nicely via the show’s “fatality of shinobi” template, mirroring us that young ninjas need to look as much as fictional heroes because they don’t believe in the ones ideal in front of their eyes.Much like the premiere, “The Dream’s Revelation” raises a bunch of questions, yet runs out of time before it have the right to resolve them. As a result, it isn’t an especially excellent episode, but it does collection the phase for some strident-gaming.netificant occasions. The episode’s greatest success is its appeal to the fans, mirroring us their commitment to bringing ago the conventional Naruto personalities. The show’s writers prove when aobtain they know just how to please their viewers, canonizing Toneri and teasing new dojutsu. I just hope this brand-new plotline leads us to some answers, and not just another dead end.

Boruto lastly looks for answers about his mysterious dojutsu, thanks to treatment from among his father’s past rivals, Toneri Otsutsuki. Convinced by Toneri that he is destined to end up being an excellent hero, Boruto clintends he has actually mastered the Byakugan, drawing doubts from everyone roughly him. The resulting episode is a little uneventful, yet even more than renders up for the slow-moving construct with some cameos that will put a smile on any kind of fan’s confront.
