The anime of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has not achieved what can be called a classic way. Starting at the same time as the manga, first released on Weekly Shonen Jump and then on V-Jump, he immediately presented an infinite series of filler episodes that have only recently been interrupted.

Even the narrative sheets taken from the manga of the same name have undergone several changes that have allowed the story to be greatly extended. This choice then led to one Bandit Mujina Saga differently than we knew even if still loyal to many properties.

The same process is taking place around Saga from Kara, started with some episodes in which we already knew the unpublished character Deepa, a member of the hostile organization and not present in the manga. With episode 158, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations inserts a new modification of the story that we knew from the comic.

In fact, it's officially launched Mugino, a Konoha ninja who has been a few years away from the village looking after other businesses in the region. Now he has to accompany Konohamaru and Team 7 to the land of the valleys, which he knows discretely. This mission is obviously absent in the manga, and Mugino in Kodachi's story appears in Chapter 16 in a very different context. How far will the story of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations go?
