Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime’s Byakuyadan Arc has been taking its time for the last two episode in developing the friendship between Shikadai and Ryogi (through Shogi) while working on Boruto’s moral dilemma. But for the next episode, it looks like we’ll be picking up the pace. Judging from the tiles/summary, this mini Arc will likely end on episode 47. This episode is being worked on by Studio Pierrot themselves, while the rest are outsourced to different companies, so expect a higher quality animations & action.
