Boruto Episode 196 Spoilers
In episode 195, Naruto spends a day with Kawaki, and the two of them bond. Naruto shows the boy around the village. They visit a taiyaki stall, where they run into Cho-Cho and Sarada. Naruto buys the treats for all of them. This is Kawaki’s first taiyaki, and he evidently enjoys it. While they head toward Ino’s flower shop with Sarada, a boy bumps into Kawaki, activating his powers, and Naruto has to step in. At Ino’s shop, Kawaki’s traumatic memories of Jigen resurface, and Naruto calms him down. After Sarada leaves, Boruto and Kawaki finish their day by eating ramen. Back at the Uzumaki household, Kawaki gives Himawari the vase he got for her.
However, Boruto is there as well. He returns the vase to Kawaki and then hands him a glue stick, telling the latter if he is sincere with his apology, then he should show it. This implies that Kawaki should fix the vase that he broke. The episode ends as Koji enters the village. In episode 196, Kawaki might help Boruto train with his Karma. Naruto might learn about Koji’s presence in the village through the sensory units that Ino has set up.
