Boruto: Naruto Next Generations 1×41: Strength In Unity
This week’s episode of Boruto continued Team 7’s mission to protect the leader of a small village. ‘Strength In Unity’ also showed each team member’s weaknesses and how working together made up for them.
While the parallel between Lady Kiri and Boruto was obvious, I liked that Salad addressed the situation. Lady Kiri, in order to be as good as her father, decided to handle the attacks from the enemy village on her own. However, what she didn’t know was that her father’s willingness to seek counsel made him a good leader. This related to Boruto, who (unlike Naruto’s willingness to work with his friends) is interested in handling dangerous situations on his own.
I really liked how Team 7 worked as a team and understood each other’s weaknesses. Boruto doesn’t have Salad’s eyes to see through an opponent’s movements. Salad doesn’t have Mitsuki’s speed to toy with an enemy during battle. Mitsuki doesn’t have Boruto’s creativity to use jutsus in a unique manner. However, together, the three of them can take down powerful enemies.
Talking about the enemy, while the two ex-shinobi were powerful, I want the anime series to introduce someone who can pose a commendable threat. Even though Konohamaru isn’t as powerful as Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura, he’s still very skilled. That’s why I didn’t worry about Konohamaru getting injured during his battle in ‘Strength in Unity.’ The mere demonstration of his power was enough to make the enemy faint due to fear.
It looks like next week’s episode will continue showing Team 7 going on different missions. I’m okay with seeing the team completing different missions as long as we get some interesting character building moments during their adventures.
