Boruto Episode 248 plot
The plot of Boruto Episode 249 is not known at this moment. This is why we are going to bring you a short recap of Episode 247, since Episode 248 has not yet aired as of the time of writing this article; this is so you know what happened before:
After the Funato destroy their food supplies during the attack, the Denki team decides to go for food. Boruto and Kawaki suggest going on the offensive, but Sarada objects to leaving the village undefended. Isari reports Tenma’s death to Araumi, with the latter deciding to personally take charge, blaming Isari for Tenma and Seiren’s conditions.
Since their rations are low, the villagers refrain from eating for the sake of the shinobi, but thanks to Hebiichigo’s initiative, the shinobi give their food to the children as they have lost their appetites since Kagura’s death. Metal tells Hebiichigo that he knew she was really nice, and Hebiichigo reveals that she nursed the kids because they reminded her of her childhood in a junkyard.
She explains that she has only been praised once in her life for accidentally killing a renegade shinobi and thinks she is only good at killing. Instead, metal inspires them to improve. Kawaki and Boruto reaffirm their determination to defeat Funamushi once and for all the next time they see him, for Kagura. While searching for food, Iwabe and Denki are captured by Funamushi’s team. Funamushi receives orders from Araumi to call off the ambush, but he refuses to leave without avenging Seiren and successfully ambushing the Mist.
