The episode starts with Koji talking to delta about the special unit that monitored all the persons who entered or left the Leaf village. A Sensory Unit was led by the Yamanaka Clan. Delta says that was at the time of war. And asked if they are still active. Because we have peace now. Koji warned Delta about Kara as Kara working on enhancing the Sensory Unit. They can distinguish whether a chakra previously registered in the Leaf village or not. If anything unknown enters the village it will detect instantly. Delta replies then it will not be easy to infiltrate the village. So for this reason Koji wants to go alone and not take Delta with him. Koji says if Delta should not involve in this and jumps of the wall. And it seems Koji is determined to find Kawaki. Delta is pretty angry about the decision Koji made.

And the sticky glue, which Boruto gave Kawaki is on the table in front of Kawaki. Kawaki wandering what Boruto wants him to do.

But showing a bad attitude Kawaki says that he is not going to put his dominant hand on Mitsuki’s hand. He also added that he doesn’t handshake to people he doesn’t know much about. Mitsuki is very impressed by this fact.
Sarada asks Boruto about how Kawaki is behaving. And is Naruto keeping eye on Kawaki. Boruto teased Sarada saying that is she worried about Kawaki. Sarada is mainly worried about him because of the day before when Kawaki reacted in the streets when the boy bumped on him and also when he broke the flower vase at the store. Sarada is looking at Kawaki and the Sticky glue in front of him. And it is annoying Kawaki. So he says that he is not interested in being friends with them. Sarada says Kawaki that he is very rude.
Naruto opens the door and says with delight that they have got a lot of visitors. Sarada bows and Mitsuki asks to excuse them. Boruto was playing video games so Naruto wants him to leave that as his friends are there. Naruto says all of them that he will be their training partner for Shinobi Hand to Hand combat.

And all of them smiles at Boruto. Mitsuki asks if he can come. Assuring him Naruto asks Kawaki to come with them.

Boruto makes 3 shadow clones and tries to hit Naruto but he fails. Naruto beats all of them pretty easily. Naruto teases him by telling him that Boruto said he will not gonna hold back. Kawaki tells Boruto to leave these petty tricks and use Karma. Because they want to get rid of Karma so they need to learn as much about it.
Kawaki actives his karma and as a resonance effect, Boruto’s karma also activates. And Misuki and Sarada are pretty worried about that. Even Boruto is worried. Sarada tells Naruto to stop. But according to Naruto Kawaki got a point and they should continue. And they start fighting, but now Boruto is much faster than before.
