Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is going to show the first meeting of Naruto and Kawaki in the new episode. The Vessel Arc started months ago and Kawaki was finally introduced to the series, after briefly appearing in the first episode.
Kawaki is already very popular with manga readers, and after his first fight, anime viewers are turning their attention to him as well. After the fight, he was taken into Konoha’s custody while Boruto and his friends are trying to figure out what his next move is. So is the Hokage from Hidden Leaf Village as Naruto racks his brain to figure out what to do with this child.
The new episode
The new episode deals with the aftermath of Team 7’s recent S-rank mission, and since they were able to retrieve Kawaki, Naruto and the other superiors are trying to figure out how to proceed, as Kawaki has been referred to as a “ship” that Kara is trying to grab in. But since he’s still a kid, Naruto wants to know personally if he’s a danger to himself and the rest of the village.
Heading to investigate
To understand if Kawaki has violent tendencies and will not hesitate to kill, Naruto throws himself against Shikamaru’s warnings. We later see him heading with Sai to Kawaki’s location and while Naruto is warned over and over again to proceed with caution, he doesn’t seem concerned at all.
In the next episode, we will see them face to face for the first time. What do you think the encounter will be like between a person who is a vessel and someone who is referred to as a vessel?
