At the academy the students are ready for their next lesson, today’s lesson is shurikens. Some of the students master the technique of shurikens quickly, this is likely because their parents would have trained them whilst they grew up. One of the students stands out from the crowd, who is this student? Metal Lee of course.
Nerves Get The Better Of You
Metal Lee strikes two bulls eyes, the other students notice and watch as Metal Lee goes for a third. The pressure mounts, nerves shake through Metal Lee’s body as he attempts to throw his third. The third attempt is unable to reach the dart board, Metal Lee’s gone from looking like an expert to looking like a beginner.
Metal’s lack of concentration causes trouble for the class mates, this leads to Shikadai confronting Lee outside of the academy and nearly reducing Lee to tears.
Holding his tears back, Lee leaves his classmates and wanders home.
Meanwhile Shikadai has returned home, he is spending time with his mother and father. The scene runs through a series of flashbacks, questions and lessons that hit home with Shikadai who comes to the realisation that he must apologise to Metal Lee.
The next day an apologetic Shikadai meets Lee; Boruto is quick to sense something is wrong with Lee. The aura Boruto felt in episode one has returned and he queries his friends to see if they can feel the aura coming off Metal Lee.
No one can understand what Boruto is referring too, meanwhile Shikadai has chased after Lee to apologise to him about the previous night.
Lee is having none of this, realising that something is wrong. Boruto and co team up to battle Metal Lee who is quick and decisive with his attacks.
After a series of back and forth battling, Boruto and co are able to break Metal Lee from the dark aura that was surrounding him.
The episode ends with everyone forgiving each other.
