The latest episode of Bourto: Naruto Next Generations was a nice setup story titled "The Hardest Rock in the World". Although it mostly centered around Boruto and Team 7 learning an important life lesson from an old Shinobi hero, there was also a big twist included in the episode's finale, as one Boruto's closest friends, Mitsuki, seemingly betrayed his teammates in the Hidden Leaf village.
Mitsuki's departure came after the shinobi discovered that someone had broken into his room and left a mysterious note - a message that Mitsuki needed to burn after reading, and which prompted him to knock out two Hidden Leaf guards and flee the village. However before Mitsuki left we got a closer look at his bedroom setup, and made a startling discovery: Apparently, Mitsuki feels such a close connection to Boruto that he actually keeps a photo of his friend right beside his bed!
While Boruto and Mitsuki's "Sun and Moon" connection has always been a oscillated between the poles of cute and weird, this scene was definitely a little extra. Needless to say, Naruto fans spotted this little photo momento, and have immediately started going in on Mitsuki's Boruto obsession!
Check out some of the hilarious comments from fans, below!

Most mainstream fans didn't quite know how to take this little "homage" from Mitsuki. This fan captures that sentiment perfectly - right down to the dirty Emoji entendre.prevnext

Boruto is trash who doesn’t know how lucky he is to have Mitsuki who puts his portrait by his bedside pic.twitter.com/bZbNk2aQKv— Reza Diga (@abuthejames) August 30, 2018
Some fans are truly enraged: they don't think Boruto deserves a wonderful, caring, catch like Mitsuki. The boy better earn his man's love.prevnext
Apparently Mitsuki's obsession has warranted a new term in the sexual dictionary: "Borutosexual." Just go with it.
What did you think about Mitsuki keeping Boruto so close to him at night? Let us know your thoughts (or best jokes) in the comments!0comments
