"Kāma" (楔, Kāma) is episode 187 of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.
The abandoned building collapses under the toad's weight. Ao uses Water Release to push Boruto out of the debris' way, and is crushed by the toad. Koji wonders what motivated Ao to use ninjutsu at the very end, and introduces himself after releasing his summon. He congratulates them for the battle, having quite enjoyed it, and aggravates Boruto by belittling Ao's emotions. Konohamaru probes him for more information on Kara, but Koji reveals nothing. Koji seals their movements, and readies himself to incinerate them. Konohamaru breaks free of the seal with one of his own. The two begin to fight, Koji countering and avoiding Konohamaru's taijutsu and Fire Release. Koji counters Konohamaru's Rasengan with one of his own, to everyone's surprise.
He detonates a toad he planted on Konohamaru, who catches on fire. The seal on Boruto's hand activates and spreads, absorbing the seal and the flames on Konohamaru, who collapses. Koji recognises it as Kāma, surprised that Boruto was the one chosen by Momoshiki. Boruto sees the seal spread over his arm before passing out. Koji retreats as thanks for showing him something interesting. Sarada wants to force answers out of him, but Mitsuki holds her back, not wanting to risk their team-mates lives. Koji approves of his judgement, aware his parent is Orochimaru. Later, after having recovered, the group makes a grave for Ao, and wonder about Kara. Amado reviews his files on Code, and recalls that Koji and Boro have not yet been cleared as traitors. He leaves his station for a moment, and Delta sneaks in to check on the files on Code. Considering him and Boro clean, she considers Koji to be the traitor. Elsewhere in the hideout, Code is frustrated with another member. Konohamaru wants to return to the village because they have a lot to report. Boruto asks about Chamaru, but Katasuke assures him that if anything happens, he'll return to the lab on his own. They find the remains of a battle with more autonomous puppets and investigate. They're far more damaged than the ones Team 7 defeated. Chamaru draws their attention to a passed out boy, who they believe to be the one who defeated the puppets. Despite Konohamaru's warning, Boruto approaches him, and notices he has the same mark as him.
