‘Boruto’ Episode 18 Shows Naruto’s Hokage Ascension
In episode number 18 of Boruto: Naruto’s Next Generation, we see a flashback. And in this flashback only, we see the time when Naruto became Hokage. But do you know what was the content of that episode?
The episode starts and we see Himawari is down with a high fever and Boruto is looking after her. And here in a gentle conversation, we understand how much love and care Boruto has in his heart for his family. Finally, we see that Hinata tells Boruto to take care of Himawari as she is going to get a few medicines for Himawari. When Hinata leaves, Boruto takes a photo where all four of them are present with Naruto. While watching the photo, Boruto tells Himawari that they had a quite hard time with Himawari in the past too.
In the next scene, which is a flashback of the past time, we see Boruto and Himawari lying in the bed and Hinata is waiting for Naruto. She is a bit worried because Naruto’s Hokage inauguration ceremony will start early on the very next day.
Finally, Naruto comes back home, drunk, supported by his friends, and mumbles he will become Hokage one day for sure. The next day, Hinata leaves quite early to get Hokage Haori for Naruto. Before leaving she tells Naruto to reach the venue with the kids. She will join the ceremony directly.
But when she reaches there, she cannot find Naruto anywhere. This makes her come back to the house. Meanwhile, in the house, the kids were fighting over bringing the pink panda plushy of Himawari to the ceremony. And in the end, as a result of this fight, the plushy tears apart.

Furious, Himawari tries to attack Boruto using Halted Chakra Point.
Naruto came and stand between Boruto and Himawari to save Boruto, but when Naruto connects with Himawari’s finger, he lost his sense. After that Hinata came back home and said Naruto will be unconscious for the rest of the day. Kakashi and Shikamaru started worrying about the ceremony. Finally, they made Konohamaru transform into Naruto to finish the ceremony.

Then the story of the episode comes back to the present time where Boruto says that Naruto comes home rarely, and this is deteriorating the relationship between them. Right then Naruto enters home very worried about Himawari. From here, Boruto and Naruto start interacting very awkwardly.
The topic of their fight is what Himawari should eat. They even decide to fight a battle to finalize the decision. Boruto wants to fight with hamburger and Naruto with lamen. Right then Hinata comes in and kicks both of them out of the house.

Though it may look like Boruto always behaved harshly with Naruto, it was never the way it looked like. Boruto’s anger only appeared to stem from the unchangeable fact that his father will never be there on special days of them.
