BORUTO EPISODE 207 REVIEW & SUMMARY

BORUTO EPISODE 207: This episode was really great. For a moment there I was

going to give it a rating of 8/10 after some important manga info were removed

but then I changed my mind and gave it full ratings after the anime made amends

by making some important additions Let’s look at what those were as well as other

important occurrences that took place in this episode.

1️). Boro’s statement about his acquisition of abilities that ninja training can’t grant

very much reminded me of a similar statement made by Momoshiki who said Chakra

pills grants the Otsutsuki powers that could never be acquired through a lifetime of

training and Chakra cultivation. More reason for his arrogance.

2️). It was good to see Boro acknowledge Mitsuki’s resourcefulness just as I pointed

out in the last review.

3️). Boros’ clever exploitation of Team 7’s concern for Naruto to land a hit on Kawaki

shows the gap in battle experience and IQ Though how he was able to mix in

explosives with his virus is far beyond me.

4️). Kawaki really impressed me in this episode. For someone who for the first time,

teamed up with people with whom he was unfamiliar with their fighting style and

abilities, he synced perfectly with Boruto & Mitsuki and was able to analyze Sarada’s

ability quickly enough to know that her Sharingan was key in deciphering Boro’s

weaknesses. Quite admirable I’d say.

5). Making Kawaki hold Sarada’s hand in this episode when it was not so in the manga

was really heartwarming for me While of course, it might hold no meaning to rival

shippers, my ship dojutsu could see right through the intent of the producers there.

My dear KawaSara Shippers!!! We need only exercise patience, for our heart desires

will soon be granted.

6). A lot of people have been commenting on the absence of a UGO

(urino-genital-organ) in Boro. Well, Boro is a cyborg and it’s very understandable

that he has no UGO At least most cyborgs don’t. Though, I’m very much uncertain

if Delta & Eida have one. It wouldn’t make any sense biologically and emotionally

for a hyper horny girl like Eida not to have one if you know what I mean.

7). I wouldn’t link the presence of the core in Boro as a limit to Amado’s engineering

skills as Kawaki pointed out. It’s actually impossible to create a perfect cyborg

without something to regulate or boost their abilities So, it’s not that Amado’s skills

have limits, but rather, engineering itself is limited.

8). I wanted to mention this in the last review but I actually wanted to see if they’d

correct it in this episode. I do not appreciate the removal of Sarada’s 3 tomoe

Sharingan that was shown in the manga While it is very true that the Chidori can

be learnt with the 2 tomoe as Sasuke said in episode 200, the user can’t completely

read their opponents movements with it and also, it would have been much cooler

to have Sarada evolve her Sharingan to 3 tomoe in this battle just as Sasuke did in

his battle with Naruto in part 1. What do you think?

9). I’ve got to hand it to Boruto. His battle awareness is commendable. He was quick

to realize that Kawaki & Sarada were cooking up a planned counterattack and

immediately acted accordingly By rallying Kawaki & Mitsuki in a swift frontal attack,

he succeeded in not only creating a much-needed distraction but at the same time,

bought enough time for Sarada to pull off the Chidori surprise.

For a moment there

10). Now here’s something many missed. Sarada’s Chidori attack was super cool and

all but the producers messed everything up by adding a familiar line known to Sakura

that wasn’t there in the Manga. This statement “Boruto & Mitsuki are always saving

me. I’m pathetic” is actually false as Sarada is very much different from Sakura with

regards to the role both played in their respective teams at the same age. It seems

as though the producers were trying to make Sarada weak to appear strong with the

Chidori Not only has Sarada saved her teammates on various occasions, but she’s also

literally lead them That said, the last I looked, 12yr old Sakura never did any of those

things So, it’s very wrong to portray Sarada in the same position as her mother. Using

the Chidori in this situation wasn’t because she was always weak from the beginning

and wanted to make a difference as Sakura did against the 10 tails clones during the

war, but because it was of utmost necessity that she used it to save her teammates.

There’s a clear disparity there.

BORUTO EPISODE 207

11). Boro made a huge mistake by believing Delta’s statement and thinking Boruto’s

Kama wasn’t “special”. Deliberately trying to weaken Boruto by making him exhaust

his Chakra only proved disastrous as Momoshiki was unleashed instead His death is

assured as Momoshiki will surely obliterate him in the next episode Can’t wait to see

what transpires in future episodes.
