Boruto is ready to battle his father as the show returns after a brief hiatus. "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Episode 181 is hinting at a sparring match between Naruto and Boruto.

After completing the Land of Valleys mission, Boruto wants to test his newly-acquired Rasengan skill against a heavy-duty fighter. And who better than daddy Naruto!

Apart from the sparring match, "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Episode 181 will feature new enemies and challenges for Boruto and the company. After losing the Vessel, Jigen springs into action and sends his Kara Inners to find the precious Vessel.

In the preview trailer for Episode 181, viewers get a glimpse of Naruto testing the prosthetic arm presented to him by Katasuke in the previous episode. Naruto powers up a Rasengan to counter Boruto’s Doppelganger attack. It will be interesting to see if Boruto would unleash his new High Compression Rasengan.

Meanwhile, Konohamaru and Mugino depart to investigate an airship crash near the border of the village. It is likely fans would witness a clash between Konohamaru, Mugino, and a Kara operative.

In an attempt to take over the airship, Victor lost control of it, resulting in its crash. Like Jigen, Victor, too, is eyeing the Vessel. However, Jigen is way too powerful and beyond Victor’s abilities. Can the Kara Inners retrieve the Vessel before Konohamaru and Mugino?
