The next episode of the #anime series, #Boruto: Naruto Next Generations will finally revisit Uzumaki Naruto’s life as head of the household and the Hidden Leaf Village. The upcoming episode will reveal the untapped powers of one young Uzumaki.

Naruto Gaiden story arc

“Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” episode 18 will now kick off the “Naruto Gaiden” arc as the anime series takes a break from its main story. The upcoming episode, which is titled “A Day in the Life of the Uzumaki Family” recycles a familiar story that was already revealed to fans before the “Naruto” series concluded.

The episode will take place on the day of Naruto’s inauguration ceremony as the new and seventh Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. However, as a father, he encounters unique problems with his children, which may be a typical setting for ninja families.

The new anime series will finally introduce Boruto’s whole family, which includes his father Naruto, his mother Hinata Hyuga, and younger sister Himawari. Fans will be treated once again to how this family live their daily lives and even though the story has been repeated, the preview hinted that there will be improvements and new footage to the episode.

Boruto brings life to Himawari’s powers

Boruto’s parents are two of the most powerful ninjas in Hidden Leaf Village. Naruto possesses the powers of the Nine-Tail demon while Hinata possesses her clan’s Byakugan, which is one of the Three Great Dojutsu.

Fans have been wondering which kid inherits which powers and “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” reaffirms that the young Himawari will be inheriting her mother’s ocular powers. As seen in the anime series, when Himawari’s Byakugan is activated, her eyes turn white just like Hinata and Neji’s.

Himawari’s Byakugan was awakened through an unexpected and rather comic instance. It was when her favorite stuffed toy accidentally ripped into two when she and Boruto were arguing about it.

At that time, Himawari targeted her big brother, unaware that her powers could be fatal if used carelessly. Naruto, who was already running late for his own inauguration ceremony, realized Himawari’s powers and took the blow when she was aiming for Boruto.

The original version of this story ended with Hinata coming home to an unconscious Naruto, who missed his ceremony, and she is left curious about who could have attacked him with the Byakugan powers. Hopefully, in the improved version of “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” episode 18, Hinata will finally find out that Himawari’s Byakugan has awakened and will somehow try to help her hone her powers. #Boruto: Naruto Next Generations episode 18
