Episode 6 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations wasn’t anything too hype but nonetheless it did raise a few eyebrows towards Mitsuki and his possible connection with the dark chakra….
Boruto, Shikadai and Mitsuki arrive at the location they are told to go to by Shino. They notice their sensei is acting different than he usually does and they try to apologies for their misbehavior. Of course that didn’t work out and Shino suddenly attacks them. The rest of the episode revolved around the three kids making a run for their lifes.
However, there were some things that started to dawn on me about that dark chakra. Every time it possesses someone and then leaves their body, a seal seems to be charging up, each side of it lighting up. I’m guessing this dark chakra is feeding on the negative emotions of anyone that it finds and sending it back to the seal. As of right now, we don’t know what’s behind that seal, it could be that Chimera thing that Boruto summoned last episode or someone else that’s looking to escape whatever realm they’re trapped in or they’re trying to release something.
This also makes me wonder what connections does Mitsuki has with the dark chakra and his entire mission as a whole. We know his looking to see if Boruto is his “sun”, but I feel like there’s more to it than that. Orochimaru is a smart guy and may already be aware of the dark chakra and Boruto’s eye, and could’ve sent Mitsuki to monitor the situation. It’s also great to see that Shikadai is also picking up on Mitsuki’s behavior, already concluding that he knows more that he’s showing. Anyways it seems that Naruto is already aware of this too and now that a jonin level shinobi has been affected by this dark chakra, they going to be taking this issue a lot more seriously.
Besides that there wasn’t anything else that’s worth mentioning. Mitsuki displayed that he’s already proficient in a number of jutsu’s which puts him leagues above Boruto, Shino needs to get his shit together and Anko needs to drop them sweets. Overall, it was a decent episode, slightly boring but it did move the plot further so I can’t complain.
