Boruto Episode 129: The Village Hidden in the Leaves

Boruto lists the differences he can see in the village. Sasuke recalls Urashiki’s words about “harvesting the fox’s chakra”. Karasuki startles Boruto, reporting having deviated from the temporal shift coordinates set by Urashiki. Questioned by Sasuke, Karasuki confirms that by being separated from them, Urashiki will arrive at the past a few days later.

Karasuki also warns them about changing the future by interfering with the past. Sasuke and Boruto change into less conspicuous clothes. Boruto is surprised there is no Lightning Burger, and that Ramen Ichiraku is a small establishment. They come across Sakura, and Sasuke has to stop Boruto from asking her where they could find Naruto. Sasuke stresses Karasuki’s warning, despite Boruto’s assertion that they have to meet Naruto eventually anyway. Sasuke wishes to watch Naruto from a distance when they find him. Boruto bumps into Naruto.

Boruto lets a “dad” slip, but Naruto is distracted by Jiraiya, who’s running away from a crowd who caught him peeping. He throws them off by giving Boruto his binoculars, but he and Naruto are caught and beaten up by Tsunade, and made to apologise. She asks Sasuke and Boruto who they are what they’re doing in Konoha, and Sasuke claims they’re travelling performs who use basic ninjutsu in their tricks. Tsunade explains they’ll have to be watched, as a genin has recently deserted the village, requiring security to be increased. She tasks Naruto and Jiraiya to keep a watch on them. Jiraiya complains, but Boruto changes his mind by changing into an attractive girl.

When Tsunade leaves, Jiraiya just dumps the task on Naruto, who wanted to train. When the three come across Sakura again, Sasuke retreats, telling Boruto it’s too risky, and that he’ll maintain surveillance from a distance. Sakura recognises Boruto from earlier, and comments on how similar he and Boruto are, to their annoyance. She notices there’s only one person Naruto is watching, causing him to dread punishment from Tsunade. Naruto takes Boruto home to keep an eye on him. They have dinner, and Boruto recognises some mannerisms Naruto kept in adulthood. When Boruto can’t sleep, Naruto asks him about his family. Boruto talks to him about it, talking around the fact Naruto is his father.
