This week’s episode was again more of a filler. However, it was the occasion for the teachers of the ninja academy to get their screen time. Most of the episode was more or less a rundown of all the students, but at the end we got a funny pay off with the teachers.


The Hokage and the ninja teachers have the final outline for the upcoming chunin exam. This exam means, that the teachers will have a lot more work to do in the near future. Especially the security during the exams will be an ordeal. We get to see a flashback of Shino Sensei, where Boruto rammed a Thunder Train into the stone faces dooring the entrance ceremony. It’s obvious, that Shino Sensei is stressed out about his responsibility over the kids. The other teachers are joking, that if Boruto wants to surpass the Hokage with mischief, he will surpass his father easily. The rest of the episode is more or less a run down of all the genins in the academy. At the end of this episode, we get to see the teachers getting drunk. The only one how doesn’t drink is Shino Sensei. However, because of shenanigans, Shino Sensei is forced to drink some sake and gets immediately drunk. Because of that, he can’t control the insects inside his body anymore. So, the Hokage is forced to intervene.


- Shino Sensei is stressed out by his responsibility as a home room teacher. Especially Boruto is out of his control.
- The teachers and the Hokage will have to do a lot of preparation for the upcoming chunin exam.


This episode was nothing special, it being a filler. However, the teachers got some well-deserved screen time. I like, that we get to see the different teachers, who all of them made an appearance in the original Naruto or Naruto Shippuden anime. It’s obvious, that this series is again in a dip in its plotline. I don’t expect much during
the next couple of episodes. As a light-hearted shonen anime it surely did its job.

What can I say, this episode was genius, Orochimaru the most cunning man in Konoha, who is up to his old and new tricks that mad snake obsessed scientist ninja is one hell of a manipulator. Episode 39 of Boruto Naruto Next Generations gives us a great insight into Mitsuki’s back story and character development.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 33 - Anime Review

This episode was kind of a filler episode. It started after the story of the Filed Trip arc. It was a filler episode but still, it was a good one and the reason behind this is that this episode was focused on another character and it was more like a character development episode.

About All Forms Sharingans (Naruto)

From the anime/manga:

Doujutsu - power born in the eyes and release from the pupils that can read all types of techniques: genjutsu (illusion), taijutsu (body), and ninjutsu (stealth)

Sharingan (type of doujutsu) - mirror/copy wheel eye, has the ability not only to read, but also copy movements and techniques; appears in only a few select members of the Uchiba clan

The sharingan eye allows the user to see things in great detail, which allows them to read movements and copy them. It can also hypnotize opponents and make their minds more suggestive. Kakashi uses all the basic aspects of the sharingan against Zabuza.

Advanced techniques by Itachi:
Amaterasu (Sun Goddess) - black flames used to escape from the rock frog esophagus summoned by Jiraiya (ep 85)
Tsukuyomi (Moon God) - illusion where space and time is controlled, used gainst poor Kakashi and Sasuke (ep 82, 85)

Notes: If a rock frog lives in the mountains and breathes fire, it can probably withstand volcano lava temperatures of 2100 degrees Fahrenheit. The Amaterasu attack can blast through the rock frog esophagus like a grenade blast of 4000-5000F !

Basic aspects of the sharingan:
1. see details/read movements
2. copy movements
3. hypnotism
4. illusions

1. The ability to see movement in detail is much like the strobe effect in the real world where the detail of motion is revealed by breaking up the visual input via pulsed lighting or using a fast shutter speed. The 3 rotating dots is analogous to the pulsed lighting/shutter as they in effect break up the entering light while rotating.
Details of a technique include: taijutsu moves, seal sequences, type/amount/proportion of chakra

2. Once the details are observed, the ability to copy movements can be explained via a photographic memory and exceptional physical coordination. Those with the sharingan may have faster synaptic relays from the optic nerve to the cerebral cortex and the cerebellum. The inability to copy advanced bloodline techniques is due to the lack of similar physiology inherent in individual advanced bloodlines.

3. The hypnotic ability of the sharingan is based on its 3 rotating dots similar to tools used by hypnotists - one of the most common is the black and white spiral which rotates and mesmerizes the viewer.

4. The sharingan can not only detect illusions, but also protect the user to a limited extent, and project illusions.

Detection: The sharingan can detect chakra and see through illusion clones (bunshin) which do not have chakra like shadow clones (kage bunshin).

Protection: Kakashi indicates that his sharingan can protect him from Itachi's genjutsu (didn't work since Itachi's too powerful).

Projection: Kakashi projects an image of Zabuza; Itachi sends Sasuke back to the day their clan is killed; Itachi tortures Kakashi for 3 days in one second.

Detection and protection work together. If the user can identify a genjutsu he can will his mind against its effects similar to the idea of conditioning the mind against brain washing techniques. Projection and hypnotism work together. Once the target is hypnotized, the mind is susceptible to suggestion.
