|Episode Name||Boruto Uzumaki|
|Series||Boruto: Naruto Next Generations|
The first episode of the series starts with a glimpse into the future. Older versions of Boruto and Kawaki are standing on top of the Hokage Faces surrounded by the ruins of the destroyed Hidden Leaf Village as far as the eyes can see. Boruto and Kawaki are in the middle of an argument about the end of the age of the Shinobi. Both of them activate their powers (later revealed as Karma Seal). Boruto activates his Dojutsu, which was later revealed to be Jougan. Kawaki tells him that he would send him to where he sent Lord Seventh, Naruto Uzumaki, and then resumes their battle.
Later, the episode resumes in the present, with a peaceful and prospering Hidden Leaf Village. Naruto enters his office with Shikamaru. Naruto exhales and mentions that he wouldn’t be able to go home tonight again after seeing the pile of due paperwork on his desk.
Boruto comes back into frame, on top of a train. Boruto celebrates after buying a limited edition chili burger with Shikadai, Shikamaru’s son. Boruto and Shikadai got into the Ninja Academy and were supposed to attend the Entrance Ceremony. Boruto gets spotted on top of the train and tries to hide by leaping off. He then sees a kid his age, Denki, getting bullied. Boruto uses Shadow Clone Jutsu to save him from the bullies and makes a run for it. Denki later comments on Boruto’s Ninjutsu and tells him that his father also wanted him to learn Ninjutsu even though his interests lie elsewhere. Boruto suggests that he ought to tell his father about his feelings.
Boruto rushes home, fearing that his mother, Hinata Hyuga, would punish him if he was late for dinner. He finds out that his father did not come home for dinner again. Denki confronts his father who tells him that if he proves that he is a strong individual, he would allow him to study anything he wishes. Later, Denki gets bitten by a Chakra Snake and comes under its influence.
On the day of his Entrance Ceremony, Boruto notices a dark influence over Denki. He did not realize it yet but his right eye had changed which allowed him to see the dark influence. Denki had trapped his bullies in a malfunctioning train and set it on course to another defective train, intending to cause a collision and teach his bullies a lesson. Boruto enters the scene and convinces Denki to stop. Even though he is resistant at first, Denki helps Boruto to change the track. Boruto is still running late, so he decides to change the course and derails the train, crashing it into the Hokage Faces, damaging Naruto’s Stone Face, and making an extraordinary entrance at the academy. Konohamaru gets to Boruto, Boruto tries to fight him but fails in his attempt. He ends up getting suspended on his first day at the academy.
Naruto receives word that Denki’s father is offering to pay for the damage caused even though Boruto took the blame. When Boruto finally attends the academy after his suspension, he meets Denki. Denki has made his way into the Ninjutsu program and vows to find a way to merge science with Ninjutsu.
In the glimpse of the future at the beginning of the episode, we can see that Konoha is destroyed. Kawaki claims that he would send Boruto to where he had sent the Lord Seventh.
