Boruto Next Generations Episode 180
After losing the battle with Konoha’s shinobi, Victor’s body is slowly deteriorating as a result of using the regeneration techniques to extend his life. Amado, another member of Kara, offers Victor his help, but he refuses to become Amado’s lab rat. Victor has his own agenda to use the vessel and launches his drones to copy the data of the vessel. Jigen wants to move the vessel but also fears that shinobi will suspect it.
Victor shows up and tells Jigen to use his airship so that the shinobi wouldn’t notice. In reality, Victor wants the vessel in his possession through his airship. Elsewhere, Boruto, Mitsuki, and Sarada completes their mission of the Land of Valley. Also, Boruto wants to have a battle with his legendary father, Naruto. Naruto accepts, meaning that we would see the sparring between father and son in the upcoming episodes.
However, the next episode will tell the story of the assassin, Mugino, who aided Konohamaru and Boruto against Victor and Deepa. Boruto will pay the visit to Mugino’s house, where he probably reveals about his past life as an assassin and friendship with Konohamaru.
