‘Boruto’ Episode 196: Boruto, Naruto to reveal ‘binding force’ in a match


Boruto Episode 196’s title, “A Binding Force,” tells a lot about Naruto and Boruto’s upcoming training battle. As these two are about to bring out their own abilities, they will be the “binding force” fans need to see.

Naruto and Boruto are about to give everything they got in Boruto Episode 196. As the father-and-son duel is about to happen, who will win between the two?

Naruto, Boruto’s friendly fight

The new episode preview shows the friendly battle between Naruto and Boruto.

Kawaki, Himawari, Sarada, and Mitsuki will be in awe to see two of the finest fighters in Konohagakure engage in a duel.

They are about to show their incredible fighting skills, while Naruto and others want Boruto to use his Karma against his own father.

Kawaki then asks Boruto if he is holding back, insisting they are only in a training match. Boruto then explains that he just can’t use his Karma at his own will in Boruto Episode 196.

Anyhow, he manages to activate the Karma, and Naruto is about to find out more about it during their fight.

There are theories Kawaki may train Boruto using his Karma, while Naruto may feel Koji’s presence in the village. How? It will be through the sensory units Ino has set up.

Episode 195 recap

In Bpruto Episode 195, Naruto and Kawaki bonded and spent a day together. The Shinobi showed the kid around the area, The Cinemaholic noted.

They went to the Taiyaki stall where they saw Cho-Cho and Sarada, and Naruto bought them treats.

It was Kawaki’s first time, and he, evidently, enjoyed it. Later, they went to Ino’s flower shop with Sarada.

A boy then bumped into Kawaki and activated his power, so Naruto stepped in to make it stop.

Kawaki then remembered his traumatic experience with Jigen, so Naruto tried his best to calm him down.

Sarada then left, and Boruto and Kawaki ended their day with bowls of ramen. When they got home, Kawaki then gave Himawari the replacement of the vase he broke.

Boruto, however, returned the vase and gave him glue. He told him that if his apology was sincere, he should stick the broken vase together.

The episode then ended with Koji’s arrival at the village.

What happens from here can be seen when Boruto Episode 196 drops on Sunday, April 25, on TV Tokyo. Fans can also see it on Hulu with an English dub, original Japanese audio, and English subtitles. It is also available on Netflix and Crunchyroll.
