Yes... It depends on how well it will be animated...


Any_Cranberry_4599

True, Kawaki vs Garou was emotionally insignificant yet it tops every fight besides Fuzed Momoshiki vs NaruSasu and BB because it had great animation and the best art style in any boruto episode


tyd2120

Not this fight alone but the arc it’s in will be a sure fire hit. It’s non stop action with flashy powers and abilities. The only backlash that will transpire will be Naruto’s perceived passivity. But when this arc is animated the Boruto anime is gonna get a lot of positive attention.


yzzilg

Hopefully they add in a small fight between sage naruto and code then code takes shikamaru hostage


Panda8988

It’s funny cause every hates on boruto for Naruto being too much of a MC in “Boruto”, but they’ll probably be complaining about him being sidelined once this arc airs lol


Nwres98

Rly? I always heard everyone complaining about the exact opposite... naruto not living up to what his powers can do.


Panda8988

They complain about that too lol. It’s “boruto sucks it’s just about naruto and Sasuke all the time anyway. They carry the whole show” and then 20 minutes later you’ll see “Naruto and Sasuke are nerfed so hard this show sucks why aren’t they still protected by plot armor blah blah blah”


RisingReform

I hope they keep it the same and save Naruto Sage mode for a later fight that hasn’t even happened in the manga this arc has done a good job of Featuring Boruto and Kawaki and a splash of team 7 in chapter 58,69. If they change the first major fight of this arc to add Naruto fighting we will hear the same arguments about old gen carrying the anime especially if it’s better animated.


superkami64

>Naruto's perceived passivity You might have a point because Naruto was utilized about as well as Himawari in the manga (existing in a scene to make others upset) but considering what happened, narratively it's fairly justified. Can't help but feel bad for him at that moment.


bleutoow

Hopefully this will be like the first Naruto and sasuke valley fight. That fight is forever timeless and underrated.


MassabReddit

Lee vs Gaara is best fight of Naruto and Naruto vs Sasuke is the best fight of Naruto: Shippuden. This fight will surely be the best fight of Boruto.


Mara_Uzumaki

Obito vs Kakashi is probably the best shippuden fight imo.


BigBadDogIV

In my opinion the best fights in Naruto part 1 and Shippuden is Naruto vs Sasuke (both of them). Second best fights in my opinion are Lee vs Gaara and Kakashi vs Obito.


Borchert97

Honestly I think a lot of the popular Naruto fights are a LITTLE overrated. I’d put Sasuke vs. Itachi and Sasuke vs. Deidara way above a lot of fights. For part 1, Naruto vs. Sasuke on the hospital rooftop is one of the most underrated fights they had and it felt genuine, no crazy hax power-ups, that was both of them in base with no influence from Kurama/Curse Mark. I also really like Naruto vs. Neji just for now much it developed both characters. Naruto and Gamabunta vs. Gaara and the Shukaku is also a GOATed fight.


Throwawayneedadviceo

Naruto vs Sasuke in part 1 is my favorite fight in this series. When he hit Sasuke with that combo I was like DAAAMN. It felt so good after Sasuke kept calling him a loser 😭


BigBadDogIV

That moment when Naruto remakes the mountain in Sasuke's image lol


RisingReform

It’s top 3 no doubt but many forget Obito let Kakashi stab him in the heart to remove the seal, that is one thing that separates it from the final valley we’re even tho Naruto held back he didn’t completely let off the gas and gamble his life.


MagavL

I really like Sasuke vs Orochimaru in the forest during chunnin exam, too. Even though it was short


MassabReddit

hmm i someway agree to this statement.


Diligent-Draw-4582

Time skip yet bro


AggressiveRow3046

Overrated


MassabReddit

wdym by overrated?


Ordinary_Capital

It all depends on the budget Pierrot has available for it.


GracieWiser

LMAO


Uselessmo

>It all depends on the budget Pierrot has available for it. don't think money is an issue. They must be making that fat paycheck from naruto.


AlieuUchiha

They definetleu gonna under their budget on this fight studio periot isn’t dumb, when there is manga canon theirs always atleast 3 god tier animated fights in one arc


DepressedAmaterasu

Sure, plus Boruto's death, this chapter would have a lot of hype if it is animated well.


ataurindo

It can go both ways when I read the manga is always enjoyed Koji vs Jigen the most but the anime adaptation didnt do the fight justice


TheLegendMihai

If we’re speaking in terms of Boruto. I personally don’t think any fight surpassed momo vs naruto and sasuke


KurlyKev

I think Boruto Vs Kawaki might be the best animated fight in naruto/boruto history. They HAVE to go all out.


Alert_Fudge

Naa we have a big fight coming i think that will surpass it


Yooboiiii

Jigen k2 vs narusas is better than baryon vs isshiki i think its hard to top


Christyjophy_

they have been saving up money for this fight and now the others are stuck in 30fps


kareem0101

It should


HavocPure

It really depends but I highly doubt it. 189 still stands as the best animated fight in Boruto and that was a sort of one of because it was Kawaki's debut.


Peepgirl22

I don't think this fight will remain the best just because it was Kawakis debut.lol.


HavocPure

That's not what i meant. I mean they decided to do that level of animation and sakuga because it was Kawaki's debut. The fight isn't the best because of it being Kawaki's debut but because of the animation. And the animation was so good because it was Kawaki's debut


AlieuUchiha

I highly doubt studio periot won’t go ham on this arc they always go ham on manga canon fights only disappointing fight was jigen vs koji and if U noticed all manga canon we got one top s++ tier fight naruto and sasuke vs momoshiki, then kawaki arc we got naruto and sasuke vs jigen kawaki vs garou and baryon mode


Peepgirl22

Ah ok.thx for clearing it up.lol.


Leafcane

They always animate the climax of each arc very well. I don't know if it will get ep. 189/217 treatment, but at the very least it's going to look good as hell.


bleutoow

I agree with @Ordinary_Capital the kawaki fight was tense but newer fights are kinda okay.


ImSmokeyy

the arc as a whole has huge potential tbh


Curious_Main_8375

This arc would surpassed the previous arcs


merenge01

Are talking about the fight in this image or in the timeskip


xdsagecat

Yes they better have a big budget for the arc. I want the fight to be like 10 episodes at the least


Federal_Web_5305

Not yet!!! If you'll think about it , this fight parallels part I final valley fight ( first time they went all out with an amp) . Yet it's already being considered as one of the greatest clashes in the verse. Just think about what their final fight would look like.


Daxtexoscuro

I don't think so. Tbh, I don't care much either. This arc kinda ruined Boruto for me. Btw, that clash doesn't have sense. Kawaki had absorbed a Rasengan like 3 pages before, why didn't he absorb that one too? Or he could have shrinked it with Sukunahikona. That scene is pure fanservice, it exists just so fans can say "omg! It's like Naruto vs Sasuke!"


trashimeantfaruk

Not likely


ImyourfatherBoi

No lol


ImyourfatherBoi

Wait cant Kawaki just shrink his rasengan??


Uselessmo

good question don't know why this is being downvoted.


ImyourfatherBoi

Lol I haven't even realized, it was a genuine question lol


Throwawayneedadviceo

True. Same thing with Isshiki when Naruto did that rasengan.


GracieWiser

Previous fights as in all the way back to Naruto? Then no. Previous fights as in the ones in Boruto? Probably still no.


user43222

Nah. Naruto and sasuke vs momoshiki >


Silly-Steak-6570

I fockin' hope it's getting fantastic animation!


Disastrous_Channel62

Hi


Uselessmo

depends on the staff working on it. If Yamashita-san directed it and did the board it would be purely badass but I think it would be better if he did Boruto and code fighting since he's really good at making character introductions. Chengxi Huang, I doubt he's gonna direct another episode for a while seeing as he's working on his own movie but he might do some cuts with Jay1. Nozomi FUKUI the guy who directed and storyboarded Baryon Mode seems like the most likely choice to me. Though imagine if Norio Matsumoto was the lead animator that would be sick.


Arcanemageop

What fight? Borushiki running for his life you mean?


TodenEngel

No rofl


hello_there696

it does, but it is kinda short imo. it's more like a clash between the 2 than a full 1v1 fight


ZarosianSpear

Kawaki's hand is very much like CM Sasuke's


UmSomeAdka

This episode better have the quality of episode 189 and the emotional impact of 218 (Kurama's death). Especially if they play a Shippuden Ost like "Darkness" or Sadness and Sorrow


BoruShikiGoat

Not Naruto and Sasuke vs Momoshiki. But I see it surpassing the other ones


freshmoves91

Depends how much is in the budget


ScaredKnee4530

I think the actual Boruto vs Kawaki fight after the time skip is more likely to surpass previous fights


genetic_tea

No. Not even in boruto , Naruto , sasuke , boruto vs lord momo-cha>>>>>> every other fight.


Uselessmo

go to sleep.


NoAcanthocephala5350

No, am I the only one who thinks this is very minor, or at least not that big a deal. Only thing that happened was borutos otsutsukification has stopped and they kinda skimmed over that in the manga. This current arc or story so far has been very lacking imo, monthly manga doesn’t help either and the fact that when kishimoto came on board the started DRAGGING out every moment in the manga doesn’t help either, I need something to happen and it better happen next chapter with these limiters being removed. I’m tired of cliffhangers and these lazy numbs spending 30 days to make the worst new gen manga and for it to only be 40 pages. Damn, just thinking about the current state of the manga makes me angry. I gotta do something else.


Greedyfu

Everything has the potential to surpass the awful style of the previous fights, last good fight was kawaki vs garou


VacationOutrageous22

What? Naruto and Sasuke vs Jigen, Team 7 vs Boro, Borushiki vs Boro, Boruto vs Ao, ep 215,216,217 and 218 were all really good.


Greedyfu

Good but not great as kawaki vs garou


MarkoPolo345

Sarada vs Chocho clear
