Koji and Delta are searching the village for Koji and send out a magical toad to find him. Meanwhile, Boruto trains with his father and loses after a fun battle. After that, Kawaki seeks advice from Naruto on how to become stronger. Unfortunately, there isn’t much time left for him as the toad finds him towards the end of the episode. 

Animated by Studio Pierrot and originally premiering on April 5th, 2017, this episode was directed by Yuta Suzuki and written by Gen Shigenobu. The next episode will be titled “Delta”. 

Boruto Episode 197 Release Date

The next episode of Boruto will air in Japan on Sunday, May 2nd.

Boruto Episode 197 Release Time

Boruto airs on Sundays at 5:30 pm Japan Standard Time but is delayed by half an hour for its Crunchyroll stream. This translates into streaming around the world at these times:

Pacific Time: 2 am
Central Time: 4 am
Eastern Time: 5 am
British Time: 10 am

Boruto is going strong and is showing no signs of slowing down. A spinoff of the worldwide sensation Naruto, Boruto is created by Ukyo Kodachi (who also supervises the anime scripts) and is soon going to celebrate 200 episodes, which is no small feat for any series. It will certainly be interesting if they mark the occasion in any way when it arrives in a couple of weeks.

Regardless if it gets a celebration episode or even a celebration moment, congratulations to Boruto for making it all the way up to the 200 episode mark! While it’s nowhere close to being a record (it would need another few dozen years to surpass the current record holder), it’s still a fun little statistic and something that you can tell future generations about while they try to explain the latest new hit series that they’re having beamed straight into their brain and you’re trying to tell them about the “good old days” of anime streaming. 

After all, we are only a year or so away from Sword Art Online day.
