"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" is now full steam ahead with its third episode being released last Wednesday. On the last episode titled "The Hokage's Son...!!," Boruto is now attending the Academy after his two-week suspension when he crashed a train in the Hokage's Rock. After some trouble with getting along with his classmates, Boruto has earned the respect of Yamanaka Inojin and Iwabee.
The latest episode titled "Metal Lee Goes Wild!" kicked off with a preview of somewhat a chakra monster that looks like a lion. The episode now jumped to the academy where Shino explained to his class that their lesson for today was all about shurikens. Metal Lee made his first appearance in the series where he is shown to have excellent skills but always fails when other have been paying attention to him.
According to Otaku Art, Shikadai together with Boruto and Inojin talked with Metal on their way home. The trio scolded Metal that all his hard work will be all for naught of he can't do something about his nervousness and stage fright. While at their home, Shikadai received some words of wisdom from his father, Shikamaru and he realized that he said too much to Metal.
The following day, Shikadai was about to apologize to Metal when he realized that Metal is out of himself. Metal attacked Shikadai when Boruto and Inojin found them. The trio devised a plan to restraint Metal and they succeeded in doing so. However, Metal was still under the influence of the dark chakra he is struggling to break free. Luckily, Metal slipped in his efforts to break out of the shadow paralysis jutsu and hit his head dissipating the darkness taking over him.
Meanwhile, fans are asking for answers regarding the mysterious darkness that is taking over the characters that only Boruto can see. A Reddit user named Krihible mentioned that he is hoping for an immediate explanation right away and not like what the "Naruto Shippuden" have dealt with the Akatsuki.
As for the preview for the next episode, it is shown that Boruto will have a heated conversation with Sarada Uchiha, Sasuke and Sakura's daughter. They will fight over a mere yakisoba bun and who should be the one to buy it. The conflict will escalate into a fight and their teacher, Shino even prepared a fighting ring for them.
