    • Can someone refresh my memory, didn't Konohamaru already know about Mitsuki being related to Orochimaru? I was under that impression, maybe the way he said something about him in that recap episode a while back. Boruto and Sarada know this also means they'll have to tweak something around the in the future, pretty sure they only learned about the Orochimaru connection when Mitsuki blurts it out while Katasuke is examining Kawaki, and Konohamaru already knew at that point too.

      And they learn about his connection to Orochimaru at the end of Boruto the Movie, don't they?

      Different continuities are confusing.

      Konohamaru said back in ep 50 there was a lot of things he didn't know about Mitsuki, followed by Shino saying "so, you haven't heard?", which presumably is referring to Konohamaru being uniformed about Mitsuki's parent.

      That's correct, but that scene was retconed in chapter 15 when Mitsuki revealed Orochimaru was his father after Sarada pulled a Orochimaru card out of her Extreme: Shinobi Picture Scrolls packet.

    • Besides, the episode got a lot of noticeable callbacks to the characters' words in the past. Sarada's statement about shinobi having to discard emotions seems something she learned from Sasuke when Sakura was abducted by Shin and Sasuke advised Sarada to put emotions aside if she intends to become a shinobi. Boruto's argument with Sarada parallels several scenes from the Naruto plot, namely "rules or friends" argument of Obito and Kakashi in Kakashi Gaiden and Naruto's words towards Sasuke that the person who cannot save their friend can never become Hokage.

    • So... Does Naruto know that Mitsuki is actually Orochimaru's clone more than his son?

      I was half expecting someone to call out Naruto for trusting Orochimaru's student years ago or something like that. Guess not even Tsunade wanted to get on Naruto's ugly side.

      Sarada commenting on Mitsuki leaving the village is quite funny, considering how she's still not aware of what her father did lol.

      They can simply leave the village, by sneaking out. It isn't uncommon for people to just sneak out of a village. Sasuke did it, even Kiba says he has secret tunnels that he climbs through when he wants to sneak out..

      Yea but they just said along the lines that the Leaf is on lockdown. Why wouldn't anyone be on watch if something like this just happened? And why wouldn't anyone watch or question the people Mitsuki is supposedly closest to?

    • hum, the difference of interest of these kinds of episode compared to ... Chouchou's shenanigans is jarring.

      So, I've got the feeling this might actually be a long arc? That's good, they shouldn't shy away from doing important anime-original arcs.

      As in tricking Naruto and the village to help him get inside the village. Not so likely considering Naruto can sense emotions. But in the same sense, Mitsuki truely is Orochimaru, a clone of him.... Boy, if Danzo was alive, Naruto will be kicked out of his chair by this very reason lol.

      The people close to Mitsuki are children of very important people in the village. The Hokage's son, a supposedly hugh ranking individual among the Shinobi Allience and the Uchiha clan's only child, the third Hokage's grandson, the son of the close advisor of the village and so on. I doubt they can just go over and question them for all day long, and the people that were aware of the situation were all the parents I just mentioned. And they already know that they know nothing about Mitsuki nor the situation.

      NervousShipper wrote: Well... they're ninja, so if anyone should be able to sneak out it should be them.

      Yes, but they were guarded by other more experienced ninjas. Though I guess Boruto could have known the place with the least security, as did Sarada(she expected him to be there, so maybe in the basis of her knowing he would take the safest route or something), since they were both there, it has to be one of safest routes out.

      NejiHyuga2 wrote: To be honest, we should get ourselves ready and make a Mitsuki Retrieval Arc page. XD

      Yeah lol, that would be something worth watching rather some other boring fillers. I wonder if Mitsuki is being under control or forced to do things like this, if so, maybe he would be forced to fight against Boruto? A Boruto vs Mitsuki battle, I suppose? Or maybe since Mitsuki is stronger, a Mitsuki vs Boruto and Sarada battle? I have doubts about Mitsuki leaving the village with having connections to him showing his sage mode during the Chunnin Exams? Maybe someone rich or power hungry saw him using it among the distress, and luring him for it? I'm pretty sure it's not Orochimaru though.

    • Yea they are ninja but they literally just walked up and left. Village on some type of lockdown where we have "unknown" forces at play yet the village perimeters are unguarded? Sure...

    • If I'm right, all the Jonins in the Village were called in for a meeting. And the chunnin that guarded the walls were injured. So, I guess the Jonins were just a little bit late to lock down the village completely. Or Boruto and Sarada knows the village and it's security measures that nicely. Remember how Itachi knew the way out and in fo the village.

      The assiliants didn't seem to enter Konoha territory itself, they only lured the guards outside and defeated them there. In case you're referring to Mitsuki leaving the village unnoticed by the barrier, Sasuke did the same when he defected to Orochimaru, so it's not something exclusive for the post-war period.

    • Still doesn't answer my question, how come during the Pain arc. they had sensing barrier, but other plot events ignore such a thing :P

    • Elveonora wrote: Still doesn't answer my question, how come during the Pain arc. they had sensing barrier, but other plot events ignore such a thing :P

      Well, I think it costs alot of chakra and needs to be mantained by other shinobi. In the Pain Arc, everyone knew Pain was coming, so it's obvious that they would keep their security to the highest possible. There are probably people checking on the barrier, and it may not be that easy to do it.

      During this period/episode, everyone was called for a meeting, possibly even the Jonins that held the barrier, or the barrier was only used as a measure to protect against Pain. It probably does cost alot of chakra and focus, that not everyone can do it on a daily basis, without any threat during that time. Remember, Shikamaru also mentioned that they have friendly relationship with all the villages, showing that they literally have no reason to go over the pain of using all their resources for a barrier, when everyone seems at peace.

    • Considering they just got attacked by Otsutsuki, Urashiki is on the loose and they are expecting to get attacked by even more Otsutsiki, one would think the security should be more tight than ever.

    • Well, if you take a look back at the chapters during war, Orochimaru, Sasuke and Taka entered and left The Leaf just like that. Either it means the barrier holder has duties on war, or is dead, or is injured or it's just too complicated of a jutsu to hold without expecting sudden threats.

      Yes, the Otsutsuki's attacked and they will definently attack again, hey the Leaf even wondered over the idea of this attack being responsible of them, but they brushed it off on the basis that Sasuke didn't report any unusual things. So, I guess any Otsutsuki related threats are warned by Sasuke. There wasn't much point to the barrier since these guys can just fly atop it and jump or teleport to where they want to in the village. They literally just flew down in the middle of the Chunnin Exams, showing that there would be nothing near the level of what the Leaf presently has, to secure and alert them of these guys. The barrier is best for threats like War, suspicious sudden attacks(that has to be expected from the start) or strong enemies like the Akatsuki. Even then, Pain just flew in(by throwing himself) into the village, if someonewas running, then they could be handled right close to the walls, preventing them to enter any further.

    • the series is getting boring to me now. i actually dropped it. To be honest, I like the way they are trying to build the other sub characters something the original series didnt do. However, to much of it is slice of life and not enough action. I understand its peace time, but that is peace amount the five great nations. They should have shown ninjas going to the smaller nations to stop the war there. So in other words, there are other stories to pursue.

      Yeah, but then again, they cant take just risk of causing panic and havoc among the villages by performing protection measures for Aliens with just false alarms. Only when a definite threat comes, that they know are coming soon, can they be efficent with their security. Their only source of Inte dimensional beings and their possible visits comes from Sasuke.
