The Otsutsuki Clan are a thorn in the sides of both Naruto, Sasuke, Boruto, and the Hidden Leaf village in both the anime and manga for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. In the anime, the villainous Urashiki is attempting to swipe as much chakra as he can from those ninja he encounters, while in the manga, the powerhouse of Jigen has just managed to bring low both Naruto and Sasuke in a stunning brawl. It looks like things may be getting even more hairy for Boruto as a deadly new mission is being teased for the son of the current Hokage, though he will have some backup at his side in the form of Sasuke Uchiha!
Twitter User Organic Dinosaur shared the synopsis for the upcoming 128th episode of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, which will see Sasuke lending a "helping hand" to his student in order to pull off a mission within the walls of Konoha in preparation for Urashiki's arrival:

Our current arc is ramping up to begin a time travelling crossover that sees the current protagonist of the franchise, Boruto, meet with a younger version of his father, Naruto. The upcoming storyline promises to unite the Konoha ninjas of the past with those of the present, giving us another look into the teams that made up the earliest parts of the franchise. Hopefully, we'll get some amazing ninja fights between the past ninja and their progeny!
One emotional beat that hits hard is just how affected Boruto is by the relationship between Jiraiya and Naruto, wanting to see it first hand to get a better understanding of this ninja that he's never known, and his father at the same time!

Originally created by Masashi Kishimoto for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, Naruto follows a young ninja, with a sealed demon within him, that wishes to become the leader of his home village. The series ran for 700 chapters overall, and was adapted into an anime series by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex that ran from 2002 to 2017. The series was popular enough to warrant a sequel, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations which is set several years after the events of the original Naruto story and features the children of many of its key characters such as Naruto and Hinata.
