So if you have missed Boruto Episode 259, you need not worry. This article will discuss in detail the incredible turn of events that took place in Episode 259 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, titled “A Wound That Never Heals”.
The Starting of the mission
Boruto, Mitsuki, Sarada and Kawaki were on a mission to save the Ex-Shinobi that someone was targeting.
They all had their thoughts on this. According to Mitsuki, it could have been a prank as the Victims were just knocked out unconscious.
Already two of the Ex-Shinobi have been attacked in the past month.
The reason the Ex-Shinobi were attacked was unclear to them and the Leaf Police.
Team 7 and Kawaki received a signal from the Leaf Police, but by the time they found the victim, the Offenderoffender was already gone.
The offenders disappeared so quickly that no one was able to spot them.
There were also rumours that it was the work of a sickle weasel. But it completely looked like a human did it.
The Discussion at the Leaf Police Station
According to the Leaf Police, the last victim the criminal attacked was an Ex-Shinobi from another Village.
He was a Shinobi who specialized in Wind Style.
Like all the victims, this victim was also knocked unconscious, and only his clothes were slashed.
The victim knocked unconscious was not harmed, and there were no signs of robbery. However, the intentions and motives behind these attacks were still unknown.
The Police were sure that the same person had attacked all the victims.
There were no suspects reported or found behind this. Therefore, the Police could not find any evidence to connect it to someone.
Team 7 was requested to continue the nightly Patrol until a concrete lead was found.
Mikazuki: Mitsuki’s Cat
After finishing the discussion and Patrol, Boruto was tired and feeling sleepy.
While they were heading to their respective homes to rest, Mitsuki saw a Woman carrying a cat.
Mitsuki stopped suddenly, and Sarada asked Mitsuki What’s the matter?
Mitsuki answered it by telling them that Mikazuki had not shown up for a while.
As they were on a mission in the Hidden Mist, the mission took longer than expected, and Mitsuki was away from home for a while.
Boruto suggested it is a cat and might be hanging out somewhere, and it will come back when you least expect it.
Everyone after this conversation went on to rest as they had a nightly patrol ahead.
While heading to catch up with his team for the mission, Mitsuki spotted Mikazuki, where a girl was playing the flute.
The cat went to that girl, and that girl called Mikazuki as Noboshi.
Mitsuki told the girl that the cat’s name was Mikazuki. Then, they had a conversation and exchanged names.
Mitsuki found that the girl had saved Mikazuki.
The name of the girl was Hibiki.
The Nightly Patrol
Mitsuki and others were on the Nightly Patrol. One more victim was attacked.
However, this time Mitsuki was able to spot the offenders as they were running away from the crime scene.
Mitsuki attacked the suspects with Kunai as they were running away.
One of the attackers was hurt because of his Kunai. While chasing the offenders, Mitsuki came across an Oden Shop, which Hibiki’s brother ran.
Mitsuki asked about the offenders, and Hibiki’s brother directed him in a direction.
Although, he found traces of a blood drop at the Oden Shop, and he was suspicious of them.
The offender that was hurt by Mitsuki’s attack was none other than Hibiki.
Boruto and others arrived at the Oden Shop, but Mitsuki did not tell them about anything.
The offenders could have been caught but were saved by Mitsuki.
The Reason Behind All the Attacks
There was a lot of pressure on Team 7 and the Leaf Police because of these attacks.
However, Mitsuki was sure that Hibiki and her brother were behind all these attacks.
So Mitsuki decided to speak with Hibiki on this.
Mitsuki approached Hibiki and asked her about their next target. Mitsuki also asked the reason behind it.
Hibiki told Mitsuki the Story behind all this. Hibiki’s father was a shinobi, and he was killed by a thief who used Wind Style.
Hibiki and her brother asked the Police to find the person who killed their father, but the Police didn’t have any evidence.
The only thing known was that the thief had a scar left by her Dad’s Sword on his chest.
The Police told them that it would be challenging to find the Culprit based on that.
That is why Hibiki and her brother decided to travel from village to village in search of the Culprit.
Mitsuki, after knowing this, asks Hibiki to leave the rest to the Hidden Leaf Village.
Mitsuki said that long ago, he could not stop someone like them and did not want to repeat the same mistake again.
So Mitsuki asked Hibiki to turn themselves in. He also said that the Punishment would be light if they surrendered now.
Mitsuki decided to let Hibiki and her brother go if they stopped now in return for saving Mikazuki.
Who Is the Last Target?
Hibiki and her brother attacked the last wind-style user matching their description.
The person they attacked was an Ex-Shinobi named Daizen Matsushige.
They threw the smoke bomb to knock Matsushige to knock him out and search for the scar on his chest.
But Matsushige was prepared for all this as he knew about the previous attacks.
Matsushige was a man brought in for questioning by the Leaf Village Police as a witness concerning a series of robberies and murders.
Matsushige was a strong wind-style user Shinobi.
Matsushige decides to kill Hibiki and her brother and become a hero in the Hidden Leaf.
Mitsushige attacked them, but Mitsuki and others reached the fight scene on time, and they were saved.
Hibiki demanded that Matsushige be searched for a scar on his chest.
Matsushige showed it to the Police and the others, but there was no scar on the chest.
Mikazuki climbed on Matsushige’s body and started scratching his chest. Matsushige threw Mikazuki away.
After Mikazuki scratched his chest, a scar was found on Matsushige’s chest.
It was a scar from a sword.
Matsushige tried to run away, but Mitsuki stopped him.
It was found out that Matsushige Daizen was planning to carry out the same kind of crimes that he committed in other villages in the leaf.
Mitsuki was grateful to Hibiki and her brother as they were the reason they came to know about Matsushige, and he was caught before there were more victims.
Hibiki and her brother were not punished. They were only banished from the Leaf Village without any penalties.
