Recapping the previous episode

Boruto Episode 282, titled Sasuke Retsuden: Infiltration, began with a flashback to Sasuke's time at Redaku, which he recalled while hunting for the Kara victims. In this flashback, the realm of Redaku is depicted as being in upheaval following the King's death and a famine breakout, with the Prime Minister assuming control of the country during this time.

Sasuke learned in this episode that the symptoms of Naruto's mystery illness resembled those of the Sage Six Paths, whose medical records are kept in Redaku's Tartar Observatory. As part of their punishment, inmates were confined to the observatory and forced to build a massive telescope. Sasuke impersonated an arrest and snuck into Tartar as an inmate to obtain the essential files.

While in the facility, Sasuke learned that the Director of the Observatory, Zansul, was under the control of the dragon creature Meno. After battling the beast, Sasuke found that it was immune to genjutsu and has extraordinary regenerating abilities. Zansul also stated that genjutsu is ineffective against him because his eyes are made of glass. This made Sasuke realize there are deeper mysteries at play that will unravel in the upcoming episode.

Final thoughts

The Sasuke Retsuden Arc began with episode 282, and fans were pleased with how events transpired. However, several fans were dissatisfied with how fast-paced the episode was since it missed many aspects of the light novel edition of the Sasuke Retsuden manga.

The new arc has an interesting story that will be well received if the anime studio makes a faithful adaptation of the manga and keeps the animation quality crisp. Sakura will be introduced in Episode 283, which has fans excited for her reunion with Sasuke, and they expect to witness their chemistry on the screen.
