    I just don't see the point of introducing any new members of the clan if they're not going to be stronger than Kaguya, because that's the only way they can be considered credible threats (that and actually having fighting sense and skills). And its especially the case if there is a hierarchical structure to the ootsutsuki, which you're right, there may not be. But that's how you make the readers/watchers actually fear for the lives of naruto and sasuke, imo.

    Well, the databook claimed Kaguya was their clan leader(even though that seems retcon now) therefore there has to be higher ups, especially since they have laws in the clan.
    I'm still gonna go with the assumption that he's working for them, because i can't see that kid killing an otsutsuki unless said otsutsuki was dying or very weak.

    He's probably right. I mean Boruto's Dojutsu is kind of shaded differently than the Manga version, which means:

    > The anime team gave their take on the look
    > They decided on what they wanted it to look like post-Chapter 1

    > They never clarified how Boruto's Dojutsu activated when the Nue's chakra appeared. I can't but wonder if this means, they don't know. I feel like it's weird for them to explain this later when the Nue is completely irrelevant to the plot, but what-ever

    > Boruto's Dojutsu was doing random shit all over the place. Like it was just a telescope for the Nue for the first 13 episode, then in episode 14 it shot out electricity which did nothing. Then in episode 15 he see's the Nue's 'chakra points', he also heard his friends in 'Earth' and located them, punched in the air and one of the Nue's portals came out.

    I think the anime team had a lot of free reign over what he can and cannot do, possibly because they don't know or have everything down yet.

    This is my assumption, but even Seki' remarks about what his eye does, is a fandom theory based on the first few episodes. I've seen like 99 threads on reddit saying that Boruto inherited Naruto's evil sensing, which accumulated in his eye via Hinata's genes.

    :skully

    So yeah, I think the author hasn't clarified what he wants to do with the eye yet. I don't blame him of course, it's still early in the series, and Boruto still hasn't activated the eye by himself. I'm not complaining, but just pointing out that he's probably right.

    We know how great things unplanned go for, I believe we learned enough from Kishimoto-sensei himself.
    I agree though, last I wish is his evil sensing coming from Kurama :facepalm

    The funniest thing about that, when Ukyo was changing the Manga's script, he actually had Momoshiki clarify that Naruto wasn't able to pass down his power onto his 'next generation' (aka offspring). So for example, if it was stated that was the case in this arc, it would make the future Movie Arc almost seem like a retcon.

    Though Seki did say that it'll more or less be explained in the future, so I'm just going to take it at face value and not "confirm" "confirm" anything Boruto did with his Dojutsu, until Boruto starts using it in the Manga.

    Since his Dojutsu is going dormant from here on out, there's nothing to worry about either in that regard. We'll be sitting here in the unknown for a few months (or years :skully)

    Indeed, that's what I fear about..
    I'd like it to know exactly why he can't pass down Kurama, is it because he can't, or won't? if it's because he promised to abolish the jinchuuriki system then that would be a huge relief.

    My biggest issue with the possible Jinchuriki system, is that, are there even ninja capable of sealing them? I'm not sure how this worked before, but I know that Granny Chiyo was the one who sealed Shukkaku in Gaara.

    Minato for Naruto. But I feel like that art isn't something you learn in school, but rather it's something you learn with experience. In Minato's case, he was a Fuuinjutsu expert. In Chiyo's case, well she grew up in a time where Jinchuriki were common.

    In new era, there's no one who utilizes a Bijuu other than Naruto and Killer Bee (I hope).

    Though I would assume they would never implement the Kyuubi on Boruto (or anyone else) for the sake of originality. At that point, there would be no uniqueness at all. They must understand that much. Because the series would then focus on the new host learning how to use the Kyuubi's powers.

    I think that they're definitely doing the right thing in trying to give boruto multiple natures , a sensei with his own unique style, and a unique dojutsu to boot. As for the curse seal , I think it might actually be a very ancient predecessor to sage mode that grants the user some seriously awesome powers.

    Hulu (Japan) Monthly Anime Ranking:
    Boruto is the most watched anime on June.
    It came 2nd in May and 5th in April.
    Source: Mantan Web (https://mantan-web.jp/article/20170713dog00m200017000c.html)
    Top 10 in June:
    1. Boruto
    2. Gintama
    3. Detective Conan
    4. Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan
    5. Anpanman
    6. My Hero Academia
    7. Eromanga Sensei
    8. Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor
    9. Kingdom
    10. The Laughing Salesman

    It is hard to believe (not really) that Boruto has been only on air for 3 months. It felt like a year for me.

    I wonder where DBS is? I'm not bashing Dragon Ball, but I know it's insanely popular.

    It should have been the top 3 right? :psyduck

    The arc was actually pretty good IMO excluding the letter delivering part. It had good character developments, plot twist, great action and animation etc.... This arc really did well in setting up & forshadowing what is to come.

    It's Hulu so I assume it's quite different and no DBS is in the top ten but not in the top 5.

    It seems that the Boruto series is quite popular in general.
    - More popular than One Piece and Dbs on illegal websites like kissanime.
    - Shippuuden was always ranked behind One Piece and dbs the last years.
    - The only more popular series are Boku no Hero and Attack on Titan.
    - Attack on Titan season 2 is over so...

    Reason: Denki is fire :bury and

    Indra, you have to understand the difference between a smattering of Kurama's chakra mixed with Boruto's own chakra and DNA, and Naruto passing Kurama's chakra down to Boruto, which Momoshiki stated was impossible (unless he became his new jinchuuriki, but for that to happen Naruto would have to die).

    I dunno. I feel like that's conjuncture. Chakra isn't even inherited from your parents, in the sense that you don't receive your parents chakra when your born. Rather you have your own set.

    That's the way I see it IMO.

    The site may be blocked in your country. A design of what seems Sumire in a Nue Chakra Mode which seems like Pierrot's art style or someone's art who has way too much time to make it that good.
