Boruto Anime Explains Sakura Is Technically Team 7's Captain

When it comes to powerful ninja squads, Team 7 is by far the most dangerous. Including Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Hanaro and Hatake Kakashi. Later Sai and Yamato also joined the team at various stages of Naruto Shippuden. However, despite Yamato being captain for some time and Sai being a dangerous Anbu member when appointed to Team 7, Kakashi will forever be their main Jounin leader, mentoring the young and talented team to greatness.

Despite that, according to Boruto anime logic, this doesn’t make him their captain. According to Boruto episode 227, when a member of a team is promoted to Chunin, they will automatically take the position of team captain.

As most of us know, technically, neither Naruto or Sasuke actually became Chunin’s or Jounin’s. Obviously, their powers greatly exceed a Chunin and the average Jounin but when it comes to ranking, Sakura is technically the highest-ranked ninja when you don’t include the fact that Naruto is Hokage.

Now that Sai is no longer part of Team 7, Yamato is tasked with guarding Orochimaru and Kakashi is retired, Sakura technically is the highest-ranked ninja outside of the Hokage rank, which would make her the Jounin captain of Team 7 if Naruto was to ever step down as Hokage.
