BORUTO EPISODE 208 REVIEW & SUMMARY
BORUTO EPISODE 208: This episode was good Although I was a bit dissatisfied with
some omissions and additions of certain scenes here and there, I give it a good rating
of 8/10. Let’s look at what transpired in this episode.
1️.) As befitting his personality when he was alive, Momoshiki was ruthless and
merciless in his assault on Boro. Even going as far as to take Chakra from Naruto
to obliterate him. Very Momoshiki-like.
2️.) OMG!! The expression on Boros’ face when he realized KK lied to him about the
development of Boruto’s Kama and pulled a classic chess strategy to take him out.
It’s was one of horror and disbelief. In the end, the poor man didn’t even get a
chance to make any move or decision. He died a very pathetic and painful death.

3️.) It’d seem that once Boruto’s Chakra is totally exhausted, Momoshiki takes over.
But after absorbing Naruto’s chakra and defeating Boro, Boruto began to regain
consciousness. This means that Momoshiki’s will, like Sasuke, said, is gradually
taking over Boruto’s body.
4️.) It was good to see Naruto & Sasuke regain consciousness after such an ordeal
at the hands of Jigen. And most importantly have their family by their side.
5️.) The presence of Nanobots in Kawaki’s blood explains his regeneration, Sci-NinTech
body and why they are rejecting Naruto’s prosthetic arm which is attached by Chakra
of a different signature.
6️.) Shikamaru’s room meeting with all of the parties involved was a good inclusion
to what we originally had in the manga. It gave us a clear picture of how the info
obtained from the two major battles was received and processed Most especially
Sasuke’s amazement at Sarada’s use of the Chidori, its a role in the cornering of Boro,
and the latter’s infection of villages via his virus which would allow for swift
intervention to save those affected. It was a good scene.

7️.) I’ve seen a lot of people castigating Shikamaru for being overly cautious and
suspicious of Kawaki just as Tobirama was in the past. I felt the same way at some
point as well However, his fears are very well placed and very much understandable,
most especially when you consider the circumstances surrounding Jigen’s arrival not
just in the village but in the home of the Hokage. Like Hashirama before him,
Naruto is naive, kind and trusting to a fault which is why a no-nonsense advisor like
Shikamaru is pivotal to keep him in line While of course, i agree he should have
developed some level of trust and kindness for Kawaki after he helped save Naruto,
I do believe he acted out of sincere concern for the safety of Konoha. Naruto himself
came to see his point at the end of the episode.
8️.) I’m failing to grasp Sakura’s role in this episode and why she wasn’t present by
her daughter’s side as it was in the manga. Making her burst into the meeting room
to order everyone out in an unkind manner was very unnecessary Even if she had to
do that, she would have followed her husband back to her daughter’s room. A
traumatized and hospitalized daughter will always need their mother But she instead,
walked in the opposite direction I don’t know why that was, but maybe the producers
wanted Sarada to hear everything about Boruto from Mitsuki and Sasuke. Cause in the
Manga, Mitsuki took Sasuke outside to discuss the details of Boruto’s Kama while
Sakura remained with Sarada in the room. What do you think?

9.) The concern Kawaki showed for Boruto after the meeting was very good to see.
He saw what happened to Boruto and as someone who experienced the same horn
growth, he was able to not only relate with what happened to Boruto, but
communicate to him what happened very perfectly.
10.) Sarada’s worry for Boruto’s wellbeing is indeed very touching as it’s very difficult
seeing your team mate and friend get taken over by someone else in a fit of rage and
11.) I like how Sasuke & Mitsuki were able to deduce and summise that both Boruto
& Kawaki are vessels to revive some other Otsutsukis via Kama. This was pure
intelligence on show here.
12.) The courtesy visit of Shikadai & Inojin to Kawaki & Boruto was another welcome
inclusion in this episode. It gave us a very a clear picture of the improving relationship
between Kawaki and Boruto’s friends. Chocho mentioned his like for Taiyaki and the
memory of Sarada suggesting the best flavor to try out made everything perfect. It
was all good to see Most especially the boys eating and playing cards together. Also,
Sumire’s care for Kawaki is yet another one of such relationship improvements. Her
explanation of why her friends call her “Class Rep” was nice to see as well..
For a moment there
13.) It’d seem that after the recent events in which Jigen came for Kawaki and
Momoshiki took over Boruto’s body, both boys have started to own up to their fates
and current situations. Boruto now truly understands and reflects on Momoshiki’s
words to him Kawaki on the other hand is feeling the full brunt of his presence in
Konoha after overhearing Shikamaru’s words to Naruto plus Kara’s relentless pursuit
and desire to bring him back. He now feels like an outcast without a home. Things are
heating up really nicely. It’d be interesting to see his outing with Hima in the next
QUESTIONS FOR EVERYONE
What do you think about point number 8?
Sasuke said he tried to return to the 10 tails location using his STN but couldn’t access
it. Sai goes on to say that Jigen might have changed the “Coordinates” of the location.
I don’t understand What business or rather what is the correlation between Coordinates
and a dimension which has already been accessed once before via STN Can a door have
two different locks How can i forget the location to a country I’ve visited once before?
It doesn’t make any sense.
Thanks so much for your contributions and answers in advance.
