Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 232 Spoilers and What to Expect?

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 232 will focus on Denki, Iwabe, and Metal as they undertake their first B-Rank mission with Denki as the Captain of the three-man squad. Denki passed the Chunin exams and proved himself worthy of being the Captain.

Ever since Denki’s promotion to a Chunin and the Captain of the Team, this will be their first B-Rank mission. The mission would take place on a distant island. Team Denki might face serious danger in this mission, and it would be very interesting to watch what might happen next.

Before the episode, you must know the abilities of all three of them. It would make watching the episode more entertaining and interesting. So let’s begin exploring more about all three of them and find more about their strengths and weaknesses.

So the first one is Denki Kaminarimon, the Captain who would lead this mission. He had been promoted to the rank of Chunin, and his most fearsome ability is his sharp intellect and his unwavering will to not give up.

Denki is very smart and creates his own Scientific Ninja Tools. He has brilliant ideas and never gives up. Denki does not only depends on his scientific Ninja tools but also keeps developing his shinobi skills to take on opponents. With all these, Denki is a skilled and worthy opponent and cares for his teams mates.

Next is Iwabe Izuno. Iwabe had been held back at the academy for not being able to pass the academics, but his Shinobi skills and chakra control are far better than any other of his peers. He has a lot of Chakra and knows how to handle his opponents.

Iwabe is very strong both in Ninjutsu and Taijutsu. Together with Denki and Metal, the team is very strong and hard to defeat. Next is Metal Lee, the son of Rock Lee, one of the most favourite characters of the Naruto and Naruto Shippuden series.

Metal Lee has great Taijutsu skills, and his greatest weapon is his anxiety. When many people gather around, or any such thing happens, Metal gets nervous very easily. And that is when his true strength is revealed. When nervous, Metal’s anxiety takes over him, and unconsciously his body acts as an ultimate weapon.

Metal’s anxiety mode is the same as Rock lee’s mastery of the drunken fist technique, and with this, there is no need to emphasize how much this episode would be interesting and worth watching.

So let’s wait patiently till this coming Sunday for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 232. Let us know in the comments below who do you expect from this episode.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 231 Recap and Ending Explained, The Rusted Sword

In Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 231, we witnessed an epic battle between two very strong and skilled Samurai from the land of Iron. We got to see more about Tsubaki’s childhood and her life in the Land of Iron.

So let’s see more about this episode. Team Wasabi was assigned the mission to capture the bandits who had been looting the merchants around the leaf village. Some merchants managed to stay alive but were injured badly and recovering in the hidden leaf village hospital.

Wasabi and her team decided to inquire more about what they could know about the bandits. They decide to talk to one of the merchants who had returned to consciousness. When they asked him about what happened, he seemed a little lost.

But when Tsubaki steps near him, and he sees her sword, he is terrified. He says, “A Samurai is after me again”,, and saying so, falls off from the bed. His fear is visible and therefore, the three leave to prevent him from worsening his health.

Tsubaki fears that the perpetrator might be a Samurai, and if her fears come true, the situation is very serious and could get worse. They check the place where the merchant was attacked and see bamboo’s sliced cleanly with a sword. 

Slicing something with such accuracy needs great skills, and Tsubaki remembers her senior in the Land of Iron. She fears that if the worst situation comes, it might turn out that the perpetrator is Sanzaka, her former friend and senior in the academy at the Land of Iron.

When Tsubaki was young, she practised her sword skills in the land of Iron. In her class, she had a senior named Sanzaka who was very skilled with his sword, and Tsubaki looked up to him.

During that time, it was rumoured that whoever would win the swordsmanship tournament would inherit the Kurosawa when Lord Mifune, the leader of the Samurai and the land of Iron, retires. Kurosawa is the blade that was wielded by Lord Mifune, who was also the one who led samurais in the 4th great Ninja War.

He was the Captain of the fifth company and commanded over 20,000 shinobi and Samurai together, and played a major role during the war. His skills are second to none. 

Everyone believes that Sanzaka would inherit the sword as he is the strongest there among all the disciples of Lord Mifune. But during the tournament, he battles against Tsubaki.

Though Tsubaki was younger and far less experienced, she did not give up and, with all her effort, managed to defeat Sanzaka.

Sanzaka had never imagined losing and went crazy. He wanted the Kurosawa badly and went to the extent of stealing it. But when he encountered his classmates, he killed all of them in an attempt to steal the sword.

When he couldn’t, he fled from the land of Iron. He strayed from the path of the sword and started only to pursue strength. Tsubaki explained this to her friends Wasabi and Namida. They must prepare better for their day tomorrow as they would encounter him.

The next day they set up a trap to catch the bandits. Wasabi uses transformation jutsu to disguise as a merchant and lures out the bandits. When the bandits attack to steal the merchandise, they corner them.

Namida and Wasabi handle the bandits. Just then, Sazanka comes, and he is surprised to find Tsubaki there. He says that ever since that day, he had been honing his skills and pursuing only strength. The only thing that he couldn’t do was to kill Tsubaki.

Wasabi asks Tsubaki to handle Sazankaand she agrees as she had prepared herself for the same, but when Sazanka attacks, Tsubaki cannot draw out her sword on him. She still remembers him as the kind Sazanka with whom she trained.

She dodges Sukana’s attack, but she is not fast enough as she gets cut across her shoulder and cheek. Seeing the sudden turn of events, Wasabi orders to retreat for now. Namida uses her high pitched voice and blasts the enemies off while Wasabi carries Tsubaki to the rescue.

Later on, she heals Tsubaki with her medical ninjutsu. Tsubaki asks them to allow her to drop out of this mission as she cannot fight against Sukana.

At that moment, Wasabi and Namida remind her of her own self and that she should not do this as she would never be able to face her fears later on.

Tsubaki believed until now that she was the reason why Sazanka chose this path, but after her talk with her friends, she is convinced that the right thing for her to do would be to stop Sazanka and bring her back to the right path. She must do it for her own self rather than Sukana.

Next, they find the bandits and counterattacks. Namida and Wasabi attack the bandits, whereas Tsubaki heads on to face Sazanka. Sazanka expresses how he was chased by the land of Iron, and he had killed everyone who came after him. 

He had been killing people all the way and that too in pursuit of power. He no longer cares about Kurosawa. Now his only desire is to kill. Tsubaki. Saying so he uncovers his sword and attacks Tsubaki with a series of sharp and accurate attacks without any openings.

This time Tsubaki draws her sword and blocks all his attacks but cannot land a single blow. Since she cannot find any opening, she decides to create one using  Secret Sword: Snowstorm slash. With a single stroke of her sword, she releases a tornado on Sazanka, but he manages to cut through it.

Sazanka asks her to accept defeat and promises to deliver her a painless death. But Tsubaki is determined, and she would not give up since her friends believe in her.

She adds that she had vowed to her friends that she would defeat him, and she cannot back down from the trust that her friends had put in her.

Tsubaki tells Sazanka, “In the path of the Samurai, people are the blades themselves. Your blade has turned rusty with blood, Sazanka.” Saying, so both of them take their final stance and attack to test who is right.

Both of them strike with a powerful blow. Just after the strike, Sazanka collapses on the ground. It appears that Tsubaki was stronger than him and better with the sword. With her strike, she avoided his attack and managed to cut him down.

In Sazanka’s last moments, she told him that she looked up to him and did not want to cut him down. Sazanka accepts that Tsubaki was better than him and that he was wrong all along.

Saying, so Sazanka died in Tsubaki’s arms. Namida and Wasabi had taken care of the bandits and helped injured Tsubaki to return back to the village. The trio did a wonderful job, and Tsubaki had definitely gotten much stronger. 

She had the courage to face Sazanka and defeat him as he was wrong. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 231 showed us the strength and willpower of team Wasabi, and they would definitely play an important role in the battles that lay ahead in future.

Leave your thoughts on how well this mission went and what you think of Tsubaki. Also, do you think that she is worthy of the Kurosawa sword, the favourite sword of Lord Mifune of the Land of Iron? Leave the answer in the comments below, and we will be back next week with a recap of Captain Denki’s First Mission.
