In May 2016 the Boruto series was serialized and released in Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine. Till now 13 manga series have been released. The manga series was adapted into animation which was released in April 2017. However, years before the release of the anime series a Boruto movie was released.
In the previous episode of Boruto, we saw a huge fight. Cho-Cho was injured as he was trying to save Kawaki, Mozuku, and Shikadai. Kawaki got the last chance to help Nara Shikadai and Cho-Cho to protect Mozuku. He is tasked by the Seventh Hokage to bring Mozuku back to his home, the Land of Calm Seas. On the other hand, Konohamaru meets Naruto and Shikamaru about the killing of young boys by Shinobi. Team 7 is sent by Naruto to the forest for reinforcement. Mitsuki also realizes that Boruto was right about the two shinobi who they meet in the forest. We saw that Mozuku died in the last episode while protecting Kawaka.
The upcoming episode will be interesting to see as the mystery behind the Land of Calm seas will finally unfold.
