Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 9 has wrapped up with Boruto unable to activate his Byakugan eye. At the end of the episode, he once again sees the shadow and decides to track it with the help of his friends.
Boruto Fights Hanabi
When Boruto’s grandfather challenges him for a fight, aunt Hanabi feels that it may be very difficult for Boruto. Therefore she volunteers herself to fight against Boruto and help him activate his Byakugan eye.
In the first fight, Boruto just cannot defeat Hanabi. He gets tired quickly and is almost on the verge of giving up the fight. But then he remembers he has to prove his father wrong. Therefore he asks to fight against aunt Hanabi once again.
This time Boruto with the help of his clones manages to attack his aunt but fails to defeat her in the match. With this, he even fails to activate his Byakugan eye. As a result, Boruto feels sad and thinks that perhaps that was just a dream. After the fight gets over, they all sit for a family dinner and enjoy the food prepared by Aunt Hanabi.
Naruto And Grandpa Discusses Boruto’s Capacity
After the dinner, Naruto and grandpa are seen sitting in a secret room to discuss Boruto’s capacity to activate Byakugan eye. Naruto comes to the conclusion that perhaps Boruto has seen something in his dream about Byakugan and therefore wanted to prove Naruto wrong.
Grandpa and Naruto both believe that may be Boruto does not have a Byakugan eye. But he has the capacity to train more and sharpen his skills. Naruto is happy to see his son excelling in his fighting techniques after watching the fight between Hanabi and Boruto.

Soon Boruto spots the evil shadow and goes to track him. He reaches an abandoned area and is surprised to see his favorite hero Kagemasa! But the Kagemasa seen in the film was very fit and healthy. And the one he was seeing now was overweight!
This makes him realize that Kagemasa is possessed by the evil shadow and he needs to free him. In this process, he also learns that Kagemasa’s sequel was canceled because the actor became overweight and unfit for the role.
