"Rivals, Gather!" (ライバル、集結!!, Raibaru, Shūketsu!!) is episode 56 of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.
Hinata and Himawari wish Boruto good luck on the exams. Sarada and Mitsuki pick him up. They meet up with other genin who will take the exam by the gates. Team Moegi comments on Boruto's changed attitude to the exams. Sumire and Denki go through information from other villages' genin. Shikamaru speaks at the opening ceremony. Before the first exam, some of the genin go eat. Yurui and his team try to push Boruto and Sarada out of their booth, because Mitsuki isn't with them. Even after Mitsuki arrives, tension arises between them, but they're stopped by Shinki. At the first exam venue, Chōjūrō greets Boruto, thanking him again for his help last time they met, and relaying a message from Kagura. Kurotsuchi, Darui, and Kankurō talk about the genin. Sai announces the first exam is a true or false quiz, to everyone's surprise. The question will be delivered in another venue, where the genin must arrive within a time limit, avoiding traps on the way. Though Sai is still speaking, the genin notice his stopwatch is already running, and leave. Tenten oversees the traps along the way. Team Konohamaru goes through the traps without issue. Tenten ups the difficulty, activating sentry puppets. Team Shinki takes special care not to reveal their jutsu to other genin while dealing with them. Yurui simply binds them with his bubblegum. At the venue, those who made it in time are given the true or false question, about the fifth volume of a shinobi handbook. Sai says those who fail will be out, and instructs the genin to stand on the platform that corresponds to the answer they think is correct. Sarada is familiar with them, but had no idea there was a fifth volume. Both groups fall into a pit, and those who manage to not get covered in ink advance to the next stage. A Konohagakure shinobi observes Boruto and reports to someone. Shikamaru informs Naruto that Boruto passed to the next stage, and suggests Naruto speak with Boruto. Naruto sends him an email. Boruto reads it, and vows to impress him in the next stage.
- The appearance of four Kumogakure genin that competed in the Chūnin Exams were heavily based off Shinko Inari and Kakashi Hatake's initial genin team.
