Since the release of the first episode in April 2017, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has released a total of 168 episodes & 169th is on its way.
At present, the Kara Actuation arc is in progress & the next episode’s promo has teased a deadly mission for Shinki & Shikadai.
Btw, the way Kara Actuation arc is unfolding, it’s quite unexpected. It’s like watching the game of thrones (before the final season). No one knows what to expect from the newest member of Kara, Deepa.
That’s not it. Following the fight with Deepa, Boruto & Team 7 have been out of action. Now, it looks like Shinki & Shikadai are next up across trouble. Let’s find out how:
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 169 Preview
Titled as “A Joint Mission with the Sand,” Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 169 means the returning Shinki will join Shikadai & his team on a remote mission.
Everything was going in the right direction but as the mission unfolds things start to go in a dangerous way as they come across Deepa.
The preview for Episode 169 of the series titled, “A Joint Mission with the Sand,” and as the titled means, Shikadai and his team will be heading out for a remote mission with the returning Shinki and his team from the Hidden Sand Village. But quickly things unfold in a dangerous way as they come across Deepa too.
As for Boruto and Sarada, following the fight against Deepa, they are undergoing a training arc. So, they will not be available to help them. Further, in the next episode, Shinki and Shikadai will try their best to find more information about Kara.
However, before embarking on the journey, they didn’t know anything about facing Deepa. And in the next episode, they’ll come face to face with someone they never bargained to be with in the first place. Here’s the preview to the upcoming Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 169:

Shikadai & Shinki vs. Deepa
In Episode 168 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, we got to witness how much powerful Deepa is in reality as he single-handedly Sarada, Boruto, and Mitsuki in their fight.
By the end of their fight, all of them were left in the hospital. And in Mitsuki’s case, it was even worse.
I know Shikadai and Shinki’s teams will have a hard time fighting against Deepa. But the thing is, you never know what the out will be. Especially when there was no such character like Deepa in the manga series.
It would be interesting to see how they’ll react to the kind of power Deepa possesses.
I know Boruto and his team lost to Deepa. I still think Shikadai & Shinki’s team has a better chance of pulling something that’s unimaginable.
Further, it’s possible, they might choose strategic retreat instead of facing firsthand defeat.
With the preview to the latest episode of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, we’re left with more questions then we had by the end of episode 168.
What do you think?
How Shikadai and Shinki’s teams will fight against the powerful Deepa?
