Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 178

In Episode 178 or “Our Father’s Example,” Ao arrives at the cemetery to pay his respects to his dead colleagues. However, he runs with Shikamaru, who has debated a particular issue for years. Inoichi and Shikaku entrusted their children with carrying out Shikaku’s plan to defeat the Ten-Tails seconds before they died. On the other hand, Shikamaru now wonders if their fathers felt they’d be able to carry out the plan or were attempting to raise their spirits. Fortunately, Ao can assuage Shikamaru’s fears by informing him that the men had complete faith in their children’s talents.

Final thoughts

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 178 is a sad but uplifting episode dedicated to honoring the departed. The episode stresses the “next generations” aspect of the moniker. Shikamaru’s adoration for his father has a direct link to his desire to do well. Even if it is not better, his son demonstrates that each generation may learn from the one before it in the right circumstances. At the same time, Ao’s mysterious reappearance guarantees that the viewer’s attention is always drawn to Kara’s looming threat.
