"The Tournament Begins!" (トーナメント、開始!!, Tōnamento, Kaishi!!) is episode 58 of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.

Synopsis

Teams Konohamaru and Moegi prepare for the third round of the Chūnin Exams. The Five Kage are in attendance, and Rock Lee is the proctor for the round. Lee explains how the battles were arranged. The first battle is Boruto versus Yurui. The briefly clash with swords and kunai before Yurui begins using his exploding bubblegum. Yodo tells Shinki he might not get to fight Boruto. Shinki warns them against fighting Mitsuki, but Toroi is confident he'll beat him. Boruto tries curving his shuriken to weave through the bubblegum, but hits one before getting to Yurui. Boruto considers curving his shuriken again, but not wanting to lose with his father watching, he uses the Kote instead, curving a shuriken that manages to pop one of Yurui's gums right in front of him, defeating him. The second match is Yodo versus Shikadai. Shikadai goes on the offensive, trying to pin Yodo with his shadow and kunai, but Yodo dodges them easily. She reflects a kunai with an explosive tag back at Shikadai, and dodges his attack again even when he obscures her sight with a smoke bomb. Yodo attacks using her hair to create sound waves. Shikadai steps on leftover of Yurui's gum, and his next attack almost hits her. Shikadai realises she's not using her eyes to read his movements, but is listening to his shifting posture to determine where he's going to attack. Shikadai tries using explosive tags, but her attack hits him again, causing them to detonate. Yodo is paralysed by his shadow, and realises he deliberately set off he tags to muffle the sound of his shifting stance. Cornered, Yodo yields the match. The third match is Sarada versus Tarui. Sarada dodges Tarui's initial attack with her Sharingan, and defeats her with one punch. The fourth match is Inojin versus Araya. Inojin uses explosive tags inside his drawings, but Araya gives no reaction to them, and defeats him. The fifth match is Toroi versus Mitsuki. Toroi uses Lightning Release to increase his reaction time. Mitsuki begins to use Sage Mode, something Shinki apparently recognises. Mitsuki remembers he's not supposed to use Sage Mode, so he summons snakes to pin down Toroi, forcing him to yield. The final match of the first round is Chōchō versus Shinki.
