Boruto Episode 248 Recap, Another Fierce Battle
Boruto Episode 248 was full of different emotions. The battles were fierce, but the tragic deaths of Heibiichigo, Denki, and Iwabe can fill everyone’s eyes with tears.
Let’s go through the complete episode in detail.
The episode begins with children returning to the village and informing Boruto and the others that Denki and Iwabe were taken hostage by the Funato.
Both of them helped the children to escape but were caught by Funato.
Metal, who is shocked to hear this, feels sad and is worried about his teammates. But, he cannot allow the village to be endangered and left at the attack of Funato.
He decides to protect it and hopes that Denki and Iwabe are still alive and that they return safely.
Members of Funato surround the village but are not attacking. They are waiting for something and wait there for one complete day.
They attack the village the next morning with full force.
Heibiichigo and Metal take on the right flank while Buntan and Kyoho take charge of the left flank of attacking Funato warriors.
Team 7, consisting of Sarada, Mitsuki, Boruto, and Kawaki, would take care of the rest of the warriors who pass the others.
Boruto and Kawaki are committed to fighting Funamushi as he will come after Boruto to take his revenge.
Though reduced in number, the Funato warriors are very strong and still surpass the others by more than double their numbers.
They overwhelm them, but still, our shinobi are putting up a tough fight and watching each other’s backs.
Finally, Funamushi shows up on the battlefield and attacks Boruto. He has asked his men to bring barrels of water, using which he performed his water-style jutsu to attack Boruto and Kawaki.
But, this time, Boruto had a solution for his water style. He countered Funamushi’s Water Style: Imminent Danger, with his Lightning Style: Thunderclap Arrow.
While using water style and converting the water absorbed by his body into jutsu, he is vulnerable to lightning style, and Boruto took advantage of this.
But, Funamushi is no ordinary warrior. He has entered the battlefield with a plan.
He is a man of the sea and knows a lot about the weather on islands and in the sea. He was sure that it would rain that day and therefore he attacked them this day.
The rain provided him access to a huge quantity of water, and he brought up his most powerful jutsu on his sleeve, the Water Style: Raging Jellyfish.
The water surrounding him took the shape of a huge Jellyfish, and with its numerous tentacles, it destroyed everything in its path.
Even one blow with that is enough to kill anyone. Boruto charged in, and everyone distracted Funamushi with their attacks.
Heibiichigo tied him and the Jellyfish with her chakra threads, but the object was too huge, and she put a lot of her chakra into it.
Metal protected her from other Funato warriors while she held on to Funamushi. But, he was very strong and managed to break free.
He attacked Heibiichigo, and she suffered a fatal blow.
Boruto managed to dodge Funamushi’s attacks and hit him with his Rasengan knocking him down.
But, as soon as he fell and Boruto turned to his comrades, Funamushi took him hostage and was about to slice his throat with a Kunai to avenge Seirin.
Fortunately, Buntan was quick, and she immediately thrust her sword right through Funamushi’s chest, killing him.
Buntan avenged Kagura’s death. The remaining few Funato warriors took Funamushi’s body and left the village. The battle was finally over, and the village was safe.
Meanwhile, Heibiichigo, who was attacked by Funamushi’s attack, was fatally injured and scummed to her injuries.
Buntan, Kyoho, and Metal were destroyed to see her die.
In her last words, she thanked Metal and others for showing her another possibility of life and letting her be with them.
They buried her below the same tree that Kagura used to practice on in his childhood. Heibiichigo and Kagura would rest beside each other in their afterlife.
But the actual battle is far from over. The hatred towards each other will drive the Funato and shinobi from mist village towards destruction.
What path will Boruto choose? Will he be able to stop it?
