What Can We Expect From Boruto Episode 196?
We saw Naruto bonding with Kawaki in the previous episode. Naruto shows the boy around the village, even visiting a taiyaki stall, where they meet Cho-Cho and Sarada. Naruto buys treats for all three of them.
Kawaki is experiencing his first taiyaki so we can see how much he enjoys it. After this, it is when they head toward Ino’s flower shop with Sarada, that a boy bumps into Kawaki. This leads to Kawaki’s powers becoming activated, leaving Naruto no choice but to step in.
At Ino’s shop, Naruto tries to calm down Kawaki as he panics when he remembers his traumatic memories of Jigen. Boruto and Kawaki finish their day by eating ramen after Sarada leaves. Back at the Uzumaki household, Kawaki presents Himawari the vase he bought for her.
Boruto witnesses this incident and returns the vase to Kawaki and then hands him a glue stick. Boruto tells Kawaki that if he is truly sincere about his apology, then he should show it in action. Episode 195 wraps up as Koji enters the village.
In episode 196, Kawaki may assist Boruto to train with his Karma. Naruto may find out that Koji has arrived in the village through Ino’s sensory units.
