Boruto: Naruto Next Generations hit a major milestone this week, as the anime reached the landmark 100 episode mark. Normally, any show that made it through 100 episodes would celebrate that achievement with something special - but instead, it seems that Boruto has let some fans down, in that regard.
The episode, titled "The Predestined Path", was indeed one of more slow and uneventful in terms of action, drama, or big developments or reveals, but it did have great animation and some cool character moments. It picked up with the current Land of Rivers Arc, which sees Boruto and Team 7 investigating a mysterious new kind of Cursed Seal Mark that is infecting the local birds. Naruto's Jugo has been thrown back into the mix, as a Frankenstein lightning rod for the Cursed Seal Mark plague - when in fact the culprit is a mysterious perpetrator. That unseen foe has figured out how to weaponize Orochimaru's power-boosting Cursed Seals, and has already enhanced two new villain characters who are tracking the Hidden Leaf genin, and put a serious beating on Team 15.
Still, even with that exciting bit of stage-setting, you can scroll below and see that a lot of Boruto fans weren't left feeling that thrilled about episode 100 played out:
Oh So Pretty

You Have Failed Class Rep
after 100 episodes waiting to see Sumire fight, this is what the script does with her, this script is rubbish does not know nor put a decent fight in the work, only makes Sumire humiliate in the work, I'm sure that Boruto will use protagonism and defeat everyone in the end. ?♂️?♂️— Animes (@Animes850) March 29, 2019
Class Rep deserved better.prevnext
