The synopsis for “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” Episode 172, tweeted by OrganicDinosaur, teases that Team 5 will meet a boy named Nattou who is admitted in the same hospital.
Nattou is a mischievous child and convinces Team 5 to get the autograph of a person. Turns out, he wants the autograph of a dreaded ninja.
Iwabee and his teammates decline his task, but they realize the boy is set to undergo major surgery. Team 5 decides to fulfill Nattou’s wish.
In the last episode, Boruto is pitted against Shojoji. Kakashi promised Shojoji that he will reduce his prison sentence if he can beat Boruto.
Shojoji goes all out to defeat Boruto. Meanwhile, Boruto attacks his opponent with his Rasengan. However, Shojoji is able to deflect the attacks using Zephyr Shield.
Based on their last encounter, Shojoji is confident that Boruto stands no chance in this battle. However, things take a turn when Boruto showcases his new technique – the High Compression Rasengan.
Using this new Rasengan, Boruto knocks out Shojoji and wins the battle. After the fight, Kakashi notes that Boruto, cleverly, condensed and compressed his Rasengan to make this new concentrated Rasengan, which is as lethal as an enlarged Rasengan.
