Recap of Boruto Episode 227
In Episode 227, the Chunin exams are over and Sarada is elated to become a Chunin since she won the match. Sakura reminds her that the ceremony will happen in three days. Now that Sarada is going to be a Chunin, she’ll be promoted as the leader of Team 7.
Sarada, Boruto and Mitsuki are saddened when they hear that Konohamaru is leaving the team. They go to meet him but learn that he’s on a mission with Mirai.
Suddenly, they get news that only Mirai has returned and she is injured. Konohamaru is currently kept captive by a rogue ninja from the Hidden Grass Village who is now an underworld bandit called Mr. Hyogo.
Meanwhile, Team 7 learns of this and volunteers themselves as reinforcements to go rescue their sensei. First, they observe the enemy from a distance and figure out their strategy.
Naruto in disguise approaches them as a woman who got lost travelling. Using this to distract them, they create a fog in the atmosphere. When this happens, Sarada evacuates all the captured villagers.
Team 7 then work work in defeating the bandits. When Hyogo tries to make an escape, Mitsuki senses his location and backed by Boruto and Sarada, Konohamaru charges at Hyogo with Rasengan and knocks him out.
The teamwork in this episode was really touching and well executed and Konohamaru tears up at the thought of the trio. He congratulates Sarada and tells her that now she’s in charge of Team 7 and he also tells Boruto and Mitsuki to hurry up and become Chunin too. Then they stay back and help the wounded villagers and clean up.
Back home at the village, Sarada is officially appointed as a Chunin along with the others who got selected too. And the whole of Team 7, along with Konohamaru take a heartwarming picture.
