Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is featuring the battle between the Hidden Leaf Village and the Kara Organization led by its new leader in Code, though the anime is telling quite the different story in its latest arc. With Team 7 venturing out of Konoha to take on a new threat to the Hidden Village of the Mist, the latest episode featured a major casualty within the ninja world while also spurning discussion between fans debated whether the animation style was up to par.
For quite some time, Studio Pierrot has had a hand in animating Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, with the animation house also known for the likes of Bleach and Tokyo Ghoul. With the studio continuing to follow along with the trio of ninjas that work in the employ of the Hidden Leaf Village, it will also return to Bleach later this year, as the series is set to finally adapt the final story arc of the series, the Thousand Year Blood War Arc.
What did you think of the animation from the latest episode of Boruto? Are you mourning the loss of Kagura? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of the Hidden Leaf Village.
The Animator Weighs In
yes, but i wish i had done better on that part, i thought it could have been better 😅— Vinicius Dias (@vinicius201333) April 24, 2022
It is sad to see that the latest episode, bc of its “bad animation” tag, outweighed Kagura’s death in the episode. 1 year from now when someone references this episode it won’t be remembered for Kagura’s death but instead for Boruto’s bad crying face, which is really upsetting😔— Abdul Zoldyck (@Abdul_S17) April 28, 2022

The Truth Revealed?
Boruto haters should know the truth behind the bad animation in Boruto episode 246.
Most of ppl on this app are so toxic that they literally hate and slander anything, even without knowing the truth, especially "Boruto Haters" who don't even watch it. Change Urself! #BORUTO pic.twitter.com/iDCPUeBpSr— Asahi 〽(Final Exams) (@theArcGod_15) April 27, 2022
Very disappointed with the Boruto episode. The animation was stiff during the karma scene which was a huge letdown. The pacing was really off throughout and for an arc where the animation and art has been really consistent this episode felt very out of place#BORUTO pic.twitter.com/GC542X8MxJ— Sluccii🥤 (@slucciii) April 24, 2022
The animation for this episode made me laugh 😂 . Like I don’t know what happened with the quality but clips like this one of Boruto just looked odd pic.twitter.com/VgoTvFb1dr— Yuna 🌻 (@adventurexheart) April 25, 2022
Kagura Death Still Hitting
So finally watched Boruto episode 246 and look i wont lie this was rough animation wise at certain points but Kagura's death really did hit like a ton of bricks so curious how Boruto and crew will move on going forward knowing he is gone. #BORUTO pic.twitter.com/36FLVwYOaQ— 🌴Jake Granbell🌴 (@jakesakuraba) April 24, 2022
