Boruto naruto next generations episode 3 is out and though this episode is about Metal lee we get more focus on Shikadai and his family life. Well considering Shikamaru’s personality he raising his kid well but, yeah, nothing can be done about moms they are scary.
So as i said even though this episode is about Metal lee, we get more focus on Shikadai as his family. However Metal lee acts as a basic reasoning because of which how the studio was able to show us how Shikamaru is raising his kid.
Boruto Naruto Next Generations Episode 3 Review
Now when you will watch the episode, you will see that the story of this episode 3 links back to the episode 1, and it highlights Boruto’s new power of seeing ominous chakra or dark chakra. That was affecting Denki because of which he caused that train incident in the first episode.
This time too, that dark chakra affected Metal lee and Boruto was able to notice it. For now we’re still not know what Boruto’s eye power is but fans are speculating it as Tenseigan, however this episode showed that as the story will progress with each episode, the secret of Boruto’s eye power will be revealed.
Metal Lee’s shy personality
Its still not revealed that who are the parents of Metal lee but he still inherits Rock lee’s personality. You all are aware of the fact that Rock lee is not Might Guy’s kid, he is in fact his student, so Rock lee’s eccentric personality comes from his master Might Guy. So it might be the same case regarding Metal lee. Rock lee might no be his father but he might be just like his master and they might have same close relationship like Rock lee had with Might Guy.
Metal lee is hardworking guy and he works harder than everyone to be better than he already is, but his shy personality gets in the way of his performance. So while shuriken practise when everyone was praising Metal lee he became shy and was unable to perform well. Because of which he gets depressed, Shikadai points out his weakness and tells him to shape up, which depresses him even more.
Shikadai’s family life
During Shurken practice in school Boruto and gang (including Shikadai) gets in trouble because of Boruto’s mischief. The news reaches Shikadai’s home and he gets scolding from Temari. To be honest here, I didn’t expected Temari to show up in this episode. So i am glad that i was able to see her!.
Shikamaru also comes by that time so she asks him to scolds Shikadai, however Shikamaru, instead of scolding few things he has hear to heart talk with his son and Temari thinks that he is going easy on her. That’s small focus on Shikadai’s family gives brief overview on Shikadai’s personality and his sweet family life.
Boruto’s eye power is reacting to the dark chakra
Because of what Shikadai said to Metal lee, he became depressed and the next day (in episode) he came school haunted by the dark charka. Boruto’s eye reacted to it as soon as Boruto saw Metal lee. With this it was clear that Boruto’s eye power is reacting to the evil and dark chakra nature.
What is that dark chakra, it is still not revealed but its now clear that the chakra exploits the darkness hidden inside the person’s mind & heart. When a person gets affected by it all he can think of is revenge and nothing else and Boruto’s eye power is somehow reacting to that dark power.
Metal lee vs the gang – Shikadai’s genius mind
It goes without saying that Shikadai is son of Shikamaru, so he has same mind as his father, however in the last 2 episodes we barely witnessed anything. In this episode, even its just for little period of time, we were able to witness Shikadai’s amazing mind and his stratagem, and wow as always it was amazing!.
As i said the dark chakra exploits the darkness hidden inside a person, this time it affected Metal lee, as he was depressed on his shyness affecting his performance and Shikadai’s words increased that depression even more. So that Dark chakra affected him and Metal Lee went on rampage in order to get revenge!.
This episode was good, i expected the quality to detoriate every episode but the opposite is happening, the quality is increasing along with the story, however its happening at an extremely slow pace that its hard to notice.
Overall episode rating – 4.3/5
