A recap of Episode 261
Boruto Episode 261 focused on Kawaki and Himawari’s first few days at the Ninja Academy. While Himawari was there to learn how to be a Kunoichi, Kawaki was enrolled to protect Princess Kae, a transfer student who was being targeted by a group of assassins.
Kawaki was tasked with getting closer to the princess, so he tried to become her friend, failing with each attempt because of his awkward behavior. A boy named Eiki Fuma, who developed a crush on the princess, is jealous about how much attention Kawaki is giving Kae and tries to defeat him, believing this will make Kae love him.
Seeing Kawaki act so strangely made Himawari suspicious of his brother, but she couldn't get any information from him. Still, she advised Kawaki about gifting Kae a romance novel to gain her friendship. Kawaki followed his little sister’s advice and followed Kae after class to give her the book.
While he was talking to Kae about her role as a princess, Eiki attacked Kawaki with a monster. Kawaki got rid of the beast almost instantly, impressing Kae, who agreed to be his friend. The episode ended with Kawaki giving Naruto a mission report while Himawari was outside the room, spying on her brother and father.
What can you expect from Boruto Episode 262?
As stated before, this episode will mostly focus on a tea party that Kae’s classmates will hold in her honor. Kawaki does not seem pleased about this idea, mostly because he will have to use proper attire for the party.
However, we need to remember that Himawari is now aware of her brother’s mission, which could either be a blessing, as she could help protect Kae, or a curse, with Himawari threatening to expose Kawaki. We still have to see how this will be handled in the story, but it will be interesting to see how the creators make use of this idea.
Last week’s episode was extremely funny, and fans loved how this new arc started. Kawaki trying to blend in with kids half his age while trying his best not to be the most awkward person in the room was hilarious to watch.
We can only hope that Boruto Episode 262 will give fans more fun moments, as well as expand more about the group that is trying to assassinate Kae.
