Boruto Episode 187 finally sees Kara in full action after Ao fails his mission to kill Team 7. But then, developments in events see Boruto and his team survive. With many conspiracies going on within the organization itself, Boruto and the others are saved. Currently, the insiders were trying to investigate the traitor among themselves. And it introduces many possibilities that can lead to unusual events.
Kashin Koji finally appeared before Konohamaru, seemingly killing Ao in the process. But it wasn’t long before he framed Konohamaru and his team because he nearly burned them alive. The arc currently develops a little more slowly. But now that Kashin Koji has made his full appearance, then things have improved a little.
It’s a little strange that Kashin Koji left Boruto and his team alive when he was so determined to kill anyone who witnessed the crashed ship. He was sent to retrieve the ship, something he could reach more easily, and even killed members of the 7 team. But he left them alive and even abandoned his mission to retrieve the ship raises some questions of loyalty.
So far, the anime hasn’t explored Kara’s true intentions and why they exist. But Jigen emerged as their leader, and everyone on the inside seemed to respect him and be loyal.
In the last episode, Kashin Koji realized that Boruto also has Karma. This made him retreat and abandon Team 7 and not even bother looking for the ship. Boruto Episode 188 will be released over the weekend and see Boruto and his team finally find the ship. The new episodes will stream online Crunchyroll as usual.
Boruto Episode 187: Boruto’s Karma Active
Things will cool down for a while as Boruto and his team return to the leaves to report their progress. But the events that had just happened would make one wonder why Kashin Koji left them like that. I mean, that would slow down Jigen’s plans for a really long time. And it would even take excessive action to take the ship if it fell into the wrong hands. The final episode highlights how things in Kara, not all inner workings follow Jigen strictly, and each may have their own personal motives.
Konohamaru and his team are now returning to the leaf village, but they encounter an unconscious Kawaki lying on the ground on their way home. This was probably due to using his Karma because there was a doll lying on the ground. He managed to beat a lot of puppets by himself so that Team 7 had no chance to beat him. So this means that Kawaki’s Karma has grown even further compared to Boruto’s Karma.
This will be useful information for the leaves and give them at least some time to catch up with Kara. Kara has advanced technology and techniques that are way ahead of Konoha. Koji may have invited Konoha into all this conspiracy. He may have personal motives because he seems to have ties to Konoha. But going forward, we’ll see how Kawaki will blend into Konoha, which will take a few episodes.
Kashin Koji must also return to Kara’s hideout and report on his progress. And of course, he wasn’t going to tell them that he let go of team 7 and left the ship. But it will be interesting to know what he will report directly to Jigen.
Boruto Episode 188 and Updates
Boruto’s Karma might be another good news for Kara, so this might give them more options when it comes to ships as they now know that Boruto is Momoshiki’s ship. It seems that all this time Kara was looking for Momoshiki’s container. But this makes people wonder why Kashin Koji let them go.
The upcoming episode will explore more about team 7’s part and their meeting with Kawaki. Since they found him unconscious, they might take him home, so he received medical attention. Then Konohamaru will report the mission and the data he got from the plane.
