The Boruto anime has had its fair chare of critics over the years with many of them believing that there is too much “anime-only’ content and too few manga content that has been animated. Well, Boruto manga fans you’re in luck, as the anime is finally starting to introduce Kawaki!
This introduction means more Kara members such as Kashin Koji who is the clone of Jiraiya and Jigen, the leader of Kara. Although, t will be some time before we see the epic battle taking place in Konoha at the moment ( currently in the Boruto Naruto Next Generations manga) where Isshiki is fighting against Boruto, Naruto and Sasuke. Still, this is a step in the right direction.
Director of the Boruto anime, Mayasa Honda, this week Tweeted the great news about the upcoming Boruto episode 173. According to the Tweet by Honda, the final scenes of this Boruto episode will showcase Kawaki and it will lead into his story. This highly anticipated episode will air on the 8th of November.
Kawaki is the ninja that that we see baring the Karma Mark in the opening scenes of Boruto, where the teenage son of Naruto stands over destroyed Konoha. Even manga readers don’t know what events lead to that moment yet but the next episode of Boruto will be the start to that story.
