Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 135 Recap

Episode 135 titled “The Last Battle, Urashiki” marks the final battle against the arc villain Urashiki Otsutsuki. In the previous episode, Urashiki was taken down by the father and son duo but in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 135, the villain gets up and enhanced his power by eating all the remaining chakra, including the power on his eyes.

Urashiki’s appearance has changed and his power greatly increased. Konomaharu along with his friends witnessed what happened and rapidly run towards the village to ask for help. The officials disregard what they reported, but fortunately, Shikamaru found them and believed what they said.

The battle between Urashiki against Naruto, Boruto, Sasuke, and Jiraiya began but due to the enemy’s huge power difference, the four ninjas can’t do anything. Naruto has been trapped on a tree and he witnessed how badly hurt all his friends. And because of this, Naruto’s anger triggers the leaking of the Tailed Fox’s chakra.

Jiraiya told Boruto that Naruto may die because of him being unable to control the Kyubi. Boruto was shocked and immediately took action by approaching Naruto. Boruto was thrown by Naruto but he did not stop and finally reached Naruto’s heart.

In the process, Naruto and Boruto combined their powers and attacked Urashiki. With the support of Jiraiya’s Rasengan and Sasuke’s Kirin, the father and son attack successfully defeats Urashiki Otsutsuki.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 135 Review

This arc is one of the fast phased arcs that I really love. Instead of going through some more fillers, Boruto Episode 135 focused on Boruto’s character development. Of course, most of the fans are expecting Boruto and Naruto to get along, but their will power has surpassed what I am expecting.

Boruto managed to see the struggles that his father has faced in the past. He also witnessed the pain that Naruto went through. Now that they are about to return to the present, it’s likely that Boruto will be more appreciative of Naruto’s actions.

Aside from character development, Episode 135 also showcases impressive actions. New techniques have been revealed from Urashiki and Naruto-Boruto. Overall, Boruto Episode 135 and the Time Slip Arc is a total success. What are your thoughts on this episode? Make sure to leave us a comment below.
