Boruto‘s time travel arc is a huge hit with the fans, and we can see why that’s the case.
Although the show hasn’t gone back to adapting manga, it has done the second best thing it could’ve possibly done, that is, go back to showing the fans content from Naruto.
In which episode boruto time travel?
Boruto and Sasuke go back in time when Urashiki turns on the Karasuki, which looks like a turtle. This happens in Boruto episode 128, which is part of the Time Slip Arc, which runs from episodes 128 to 136. The original Naruto book by Masashi Kishimoto is 20 years old, and this arc is part of a project to celebrate that.
In the rest of this piece, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about Boruto and Sasuke’s trip back in time. You’ll find out what happened to send them there, what they did there, and how the whole adventure changed (or didn’t change) Naruto’s world as it had been set up years before.
Boruto Time-skip Arc – What’s Happening?
While that hasn’t happened right away, it’ll all be the focus of this 8-episode arc, and hopefully, we’ll get to see some great content in this arc as well.
Last week, again, we saw some great character interactions between the old generation characters such as Naruto, Hinata, Neji, and even Rock Lee.
It was really enjoyable to watch, but the most exciting part came towards the end of the episode, as we found out what was next for the arc.
According to the synopsis for Boruto Episode 131, the next episode of the show is going to be titled “The Power of the Nine-Tails,” and these are the contents of the episode: “Urashiki is Back! Boruto, Sasuke, and Jiraiya try to rescue Naruto from Urashiki’s clutches but the Nine-Tails chakra gets out of control. Boruto manages to catch up to Urashiki but witnesses something disturbing?!”
We’re very excited to see this big team-up between Jiraiya and Sasuke Uchiha. Will Jiraiya find out who Sasuke really is? Or will that bit remain a mystery? We don’t know much about it yet, but hopefully, our questions will be answered soon.
Boruto Time-skip Arc – Urashiki vs Jiraiya
We’re even more excited to see what becomes of Urashiki Otsutsuki. Will he finally be taken down in this arc?
We certainly think that it could well be the case, but nothing can be said for sure, and if it truly is the case, then it’ll be even more interesting to see who possessed his Karma, and how they were able to manifest its powers.
Boruto Episode 131 is going to be released on November 3, 2019.
How do you guys feel about the upcoming time travel arc in Boruto? Apparently, Urashiki goes to the past to kill Naruto for the Nine-Tails because he knows he doesn’t have a chance against an adult Naruto. Boruto and Sasuke also go to the past.
I know I’m really nervous about it. What if it isn’t good quality? What if it opens plot holes? And how is this arc not significant enough to be manga content, because undoubtedly it’ll push Boruto’s development a lot? I kind of wish they just made this arc a non-canon movie.
But also, Kishimoto personally requested this arc, so I’m hopeful, too. Maybe that’ll be really good with his involvement. Who knows—maybe it’ll even close plot holes?
Let me know your thoughts… and let’s pray for this arc oof.
Kishimoto’s request for the arc doesn’t really settle my fear of this. Although there’s no doubt he is a skilled writer and artist, he’s definitely made a large number of mistakes in both departments across the whole series.
Then again, although they label this as canon, it will likely never or rarely be referenced and, as such, should be able to stand on its own without possibly butchering the plot.
I’m more worried about how time travel is done and the rules surrounding it because if it’s relatively simple to pull off or contains too few restrictions, then for the rest of the series whenever something bad happens, I’m going to think they should just time travel to solve it.
How did Boruto and Sasuke travel back in time?
In the last few minutes of the first show of the arc, the events are talked about. As many shinobi work together to catch Urashiki, Sasuke tells Boruto that Urashiki probably stole Mirai’s energy and is using it to use genjutsu to lure shinobi out of the village. Thanks to the genjutsu, the Konoha shinobi are able to keep Krogi and Mirai from fighting each other. This is because each of them thinks the other is Urashiki.
Urashiki had been listening to Mirai’s radio to find out where they were going and is now getting ready to go after Naruto. Boruto stops Boruto and Sasuke from running to the Hokage’s office. He figures that Urashiki is after something else because Naruto still has skilled shinobi around, and he remembers that the symbol on the item in the news is the same one they saw at the ruins where they fought the White Zetsu.
Instead, they go to the research center, where they find shinobi whose chakra has been taken away. Urashiki turns on the turtle-shaped item Karasuki. Boruto and Sasuke show up and try to stop Urashiki from using it. Urashiki walks into the light that the gadget makes, and Boruto and Sasuke follow him into a strange place.
Boruto and Sasuke attack Urashiki, but he fights them off, pushing Boruto into Karasuki and making her fall off a ledge. Sasuke uses his Rinnegan to switch them with Urashiki, and Susanoo protects them all. They get lost and end up in a bush, but they find their way back to Konoha. But they find that the Hokage rocks only have four faces cut into them. This means that they are in the past.
In short, Urashiki turned on the Karasuki, which is what sent the two heroes back in time. Karasuki is a thing that the tsutsuki clan made. Karasuki is a very real person. He only talks to describe what’s going on or to ask what to do. Even though he is a part of the tsutsuki clan and talks about them with respect, he says that he doesn’t really care about any clan.
How does Boruto’s time travel change the world of Naruto?
Now, the long-term effects of this arc on Naruto’s past and future aren’t really important. As a short arc in an anime series, the arc couldn’t really change what had already been set up, and it didn’t change anything big or retcon anything in the series. But what it did was tell us more about the original Naruto story, but from a different point of view.
In particular, the time travel arc gave us a new way to look at the events of the first series. It’s not just a new view from within the world; it’s also something new for us, the old(er) fans of the series who were there when it all happened the first time.
This story arc let us see some of the characters and their powers and abilities from new views. It also helped us understand the feelings behind the original stories much better.
Naruto turned out to have a lot more depth than we thought at first, and the Time Slip Arc made it easy for us to see that from a current point of view and in the light of some new events.
