As a member of narutoThe “next generation” is most focused on being Hokage, boruto‘S Sarada now has the chance to remove any doubts others may have about Konoha Village’s ability to lead shinobi in the future.
Since the series’ debut, Sarada Uchiha has proudly announced her intention to become the next Hokage. However, while she showed glimpses of greatness, Boruto didn’t give Sarada on time, nor enough ‘screen time’ to really showcase her abilities. However, after the most recent events in the manga, Sarada is the most important person to Boruto and Konoha’s survival. If Sarada can salvage the situation in this case, she will be in a great position to receive the title of Hokage when she comes of age.
It’s time for Saradaì to prove she’s Hokage
Sarada finds herself in this position due to her inexplicable ability to be unaffected by Eida’s Almighty power, which, after Boruto chapter #78, presumably affected everyone else except Boruto, Kawaki, Daemon and Sumire. While Sumire could also do something, her skill level, experience, and motivation did not match Sarada’s abilities. Furthermore, Sarada’s affection for Boruto gives her more reason to act. Sara achieved her first success by convincing her father Sasuke to help Boruto. Though affected by Eida’s spell, Sasuke is still convinced by Sarada’s Mangekyo Sharingan awakening and by the pure love and trust he has for his daughter. Sasuke’s intervention allowed Boruto to escape and will likely give the hero time to train and prepare for his return. However, Sarada remained in Konoha, which gave her the opportunity to act on her own.
Sarada can face the Kawaki-Eida threat directly. Fortunately, she has the element of surprise in that neither Kawaki nor Eida know that she is not mesmerized by Eida’s charms. Furthermore, Eida really likes Sarada and considers her a “real” friend. On the one hand, Sarada may try to convince Eida that what she is doing is wrong and will end up hurting her chances of being with Kawaki. In contrast, Sarada can attack Eida, when she least expects it to incapacitate or kill her. However, in Momoshiki’s words, neither of those ways actually ended the effects of the Almighty, so Sarada would have to find another way.
At this point in the story, with Naruto trapped in another dimension, her father, Sasuke, is seen as a traitor, and everyone else is on the hunt. borutoSarada stands at the intersection of greatness and mediocrity, and this will surely be her best chance to prove that one day she will be able to lead Konoha as the next Hokage.
