The Value of a Hidden Ace
“The Value of a Hidden Ace” (切り札の価値, Kirifuda no Kachi) is episode 150 of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.
Tentō practices shurikenjutsu, remembering Boruto’s words, determined to impress his father. Yamaoka arrives and tells him he’s seen a suspicious man pretending to be a bodyguard, and fears for Ikkyū’s life. Tentō wants to resolve the situation himself, and decides to investigate. Boruto tells Sarada and Mitsuki about Tentō and his escort mission. They find Konohamaru, who tells them they’ve been assigned a B-rank mission, much to their excitement. He warns them of the dangers associated with a higher rank mission, but the genin remain enthusiastic. Ikkyū sees Tentō’s various card purchases, and remembering his talk with Naruto, decides to speak to him himself. Yamaoka takes Tentō to a secluded path, where a Mujina Bandit knocks him out. Ikkyū is informed both Tentō and Yamaoka are nowhere to be found. Walking around with Mitsuki, Boruto finds that Tentō slipped the card he’s been after into his jacket, and though he wishes to keep it, Boruto rushes to return it. At the hotel, Boruto notices how many guards have been mobilised. Boruto tries finding Tentō’s room, and overhears Ikkyū discussing Tentō’s kidnapping. His captors claim to be the Mujina Bandits, they threaten to kill Tentō if Ikkyū lets the information go public, and their demands include 500 million ryō and the release of all the prisoners from Hōzuki Castle.
Ikkyū deduces the bandits must have spies infiltrated either in Konohagakure or among his staff, to be able to pull off the kidnapping with no witnesses. After hearing where the exchange is suppose to happen, Boruto rushes out. He informs Sarada he can’t go on their mission, and she can tell by his tone it’s something serious. She says she and Mitsuki will handle things, and he thanks her. Boruto doesn’t inform Konoha, keeping in mind the possibility of there being a spy. Tentō is confused by his captors, and Shojoji drops his Yamaoka disguise, revealing he devoured the real Yamaoka to take his place. He introduces himself as a shinobi, and is displeased when Tentō has never heard of him, not being featured in collectable cards, but someone like Orochimaru is. Boruto threatens a Mujina Bandit at the exchange point to take him to their hideout. Sarada informs Mitsuki of Boruto’s situation. Shojoji mocks Tentō’s attempts to get away, and tells him he’ll take Tentō’s place, and when he’s reunited with his father, he’ll take Ikkyū’s place as daimyō. Tentō sees his shuriken and the Naruto card Boruto gave him, and uses the shuriken to cut himself free. He tries killing himself to Shojoji can’t use him against his father, but Shojoji stops him. Shojoji prepares to eat Tentō’s brain for his jutsu, but is interrupted by Boruto.
