Boruto Finally Makes Sasuke's Daughter Relevant Again
Chapter 78 of Boruto finally puts the spotlight on one of the most interesting yet underutilized characters, Sarada, and her relationship with the protagonist.
Warning: SPOILERS for chapter #78 of Boruto
Sasuke's daughter, Sarada Uchiha, is one of the most underrated and underutilized characters in Boruto, but Chapter 78 of the series finally puts the spotlight on Sarada and her relationship with the main character, Boruto.
In Boruto's episode 78, Kawaki, who had just betrayed Konoha and imprisoned Naruto and Hinata in the Daikokuten dimension, ambushed Boruto and killed him in order to protect Naruto and Konoha from trying to take over Boruto's body The damage of the peach-colored lumber. Sarada, having just learned that Boruto was killed by Kawaki during a battle with Code (and then revived), steps in to save his friend, while proudly announcing her dream of becoming the next Hokage.
Sarada Is Boruto's Most Original Character
Sarada is one of the funniest characters in Boruto. As Sasuke and Sakura's daughter, she inherited her father's seriousness and dedication, as well as her mother's compassionate nature, making Sasuke one of the most original characters in Boruto. One of the funniest twists in the series is that even though Boruto is Naruto's son, he doesn't want to follow in his father's footsteps and become the next Hokage. It's actually Sarada's dream, which creates an interesting dynamic between her and Boruto, and In fact, young Uchiha girls sometimes show romantic affection for the main character.
However, these seeds never had a chance to germinate in the series. While the anime spent a lot of time expanding Team 7 and its relationships, in the Boruto manga, Sarada had very little time to shine, much to the dismay of fans. Chapter 78 almost shows awareness of the issue, as Sarada is shocked to find she's been left out of the loop about recent events in Boruto's life. Despite Kawaki's overwhelming strength and killing intent, it's her determination to protect her friend that finally makes Genada shine.
Sarada Never Got Enough Time To Shine In Boruto
But it has to be said that the end of this rescue is that Boruto needs to rescue Geng even more, which is not a good thing for the Uchiha clan. While it's nice to see Sarada in action, it also highlights the power gap between those touched by Otsutsuki (Boruto, Kawaki, Code, Eida, and Daemon) and others in the series. It would be nice to see Sarada (and a new generation of ninjas like Mitsuki) play a bigger role in future Boruto chapters character in the story.
