Team 15 gets a new mission of apprehending thieves in "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Episode 231. The new episode is called "The Rusty Sword."

The official promo trailer of Episode 231 is out. The trailer shows a pack of robbers surrounding an innocent civilian. Team 15 comprising Suzumeno Namida, Izuno Wasabi and Kurogane Tsubaki will be assigned to investigate the crime.

According to the witness’ account, there were sword marks left at the scene. Meanwhile, Tsubaki is a sword user and the team can use her expertise to extract some clues about the attackers.

In the previous episode, after Cho-Cho was injured, Kawaki decided to help Mozuku and faced a formidable enemy.

Toward the end of the battle, he too, was wounded. Later, Kawaki and Naruto met and the former asked the Seventh Hokage to give him one more chance.

But Naruto told him he passed the test and will work as a genin.

“Cho-Cho is injured in an attack by a mysterious ninja and the item that Mozuku had been holding is stolen. Captain Shikadai realizes that this was no ordinary guard mission, but one that makes them the targets of other ninja. He immediately decides to turn back toward home. But Kawaki feels for Mozuku, who was entrusted with the item that would save his people, so he ignores Shikadai's orders and pursues the ninja along with Mozuku. All alone, Kawaki faces a powerful enemy who uses a strange jutsu. Will he be able to protect Mozuku and safely return him to the Land of Calm Seas?” read the official synopsis of Episode 230, according to Crunchyroll.
