Boruto Episode 281 Preview
The upcoming episode 281 of Boruto, titled “The Eighth Truth,” will wrap up the Labyrinth Game Arc. All the deaths were part of a genjutsu, as Mr. Kiseru explained to Boruto in the previous episode. Kiseru could not let on that he was an undercover spy, so he had Boruto snap out of the genjutsu.
Boruto will face off against the last remaining foe, most likely Rokuro, in the upcoming episode. This could mean a struggle between Boruto and Yatsume, who appears to be under Rokuro’s influence after she was revealed to have a cut on her leg.
