    Thoughts on chapter 17.

    This is pretty much setting up to be Boruto's take on The Zabuza arc: a C mission having to protect some guy Boruto obviously clashes with based on personality type and believes and this being the first official full mission of the entire team; having some guy before the major fate meet our main hero and form some sort of bond with them. Heck this is even about the Land of Waves and a missing nin from that. Honestly nothing here really exites me. I do like the idea of discussing how important the use of technology is and not just instantly dismissing it as well as Sarada at least understanding why Boruto was hesistant about the mission. Though the whole "I need to protect Sarada" is just sexist BS since if she's aiming to be Hokage and gets it she's the strongest so wouldn't need that protection anyway. Sasuke doesn't serve as Naruto's protector really so Boruto shouldn't assume he'd be Sarada but no because she's a girl it has to be like that and... ugh just screw that kind of BS logic so hard I hate that but that's the most emotion this got out of me as it was kind of a lot of dry talking as probably next time we'll get action and not really much else to say so... that's my thoughts on this chapter then.

    If there is one thing I don't like about Boruto is the lack of danger, I don't know with early Naruto you get a sense that the characters are vunerable and the world outside could it them whole, here its too safe for my liking.

    Quick thoughts on chapter 18.

    Honestly not much to say. I do like taking the time to show the positives of this technology and Boruto getting into it and actually liking the guy since him actually bonding with other people is better then him just being a jerk to them and liked that assistant girl but... not really much else to this one really. Do hope since they did show off Sarada a bit here we actually do see more of her and Mitsuki and this isn't just the total Boruto show. I guess this is more balanced in early Naruto since... Sarada just isn't a tree stump useless here but still would like more from her character wise but still good stuff here. Just not again much worth talking about.

    Quick thoughts on chapter 19

    Ugh when I said I wanted more character wise from Sarada I didn't mean "tease at love triangle BS with her having secret feelings for Boruto while the class president girl being more open with it". That is such lame crap that really makes this series even more then most jump series feel like it is just for little little kids as most other series feel way more past this. There are some good bits as I actually do like Katasuke stepping up with his ninja tech suit to defeat the ninja robot puppets Boruto Sarada and Mitsuki couldn't just offensive blast to death and I am glad this whole search for Konohmaru only took a chapter and we're already getting back to Ao and his fight with the group (glad they spelled out his history as yeah now I remember he was from Naruto but his appearance a few chapters back didn't help as Ao was not really a stand out character even in his debut Shippuden arc) but... that's really it. Not really anything else that interesting or stand out here as kind of just a standard Boruto chapter otherwise.

    Quick thoughts on Boruto Chapter 20

    You know if we knew or cared anything about Mugito (which I doubt even originally in Naruto he was given a lot to do) his death might of meant something but it really doesn't. Also the opening battle didn't flow as well as others we've seen in this series and honestly felt like Ao and Boruto's team level of skill should of been higher then the little display we got here. I again don't like the just focus on Boruto and honestly though it's a good lesson the "technology isn't bad it's just the people who use them" whole speech he gave felt very... elementary school. And I get that shonen manga is for kids but it usually seems like they're aiming for something smarter in how they give they're messages. Even Naruto was usually better then that but Boruto sort of feels like a Naruto Jr in more ways then one. Still I do hope this leads to at least a battle of everyone using ninja tools against Ao and again not just the Boruto show so... not much of a chapter really but I guess not terrible.
