    The current arc is considered canon by ikemoto btw. The way boruto has been behaving was kinda like naruto chasing after sasuke back in shippuden which isn't like him at all.

    To be honest, i feel like the writers sometimes don't know what to do with his character. I mean they introduced him to us a genius, a prodigy of some sorts but by the looks of it he isn't, if you compare him to neji, minato, kakashi, itachi, obito, you can definitely see that he doesn't compare to them. He has never had a one-on-one fight that he won fair and square against a strong opponent, he always needs help, whether from his friends, kote, jougan, karma, he just isn't as strong as kakashi was naturally.

    The point is that sometimes he is extremely smart, so smart he shocked kakashi, but then they change and make him dumber than the rest, so dumb he couldn't recoqnize chocho? I mean people of color are minority in konoha, plus chocho was wearing the exact same clothes she wears everyday, this made boruto look retarded tbh.

    Maybe the writers themselves don't know how to portray him?
    I mean he is a complicated character who changes his mind every second about something unlike naruto who remained true to his word till the very end.

    No offense but judging by your description that sounds like a woman with severe daily hormonal changes.

    apparently only when someone may die or some big changing physical event happens to the character

    not personality it seems since Kodachi is busy and likely he assumes that everything will just revert back post arc/episodes

    His stats said his intelligence was average.

    Boruto being a super-smart genius is just SP self-inserting.

    He is only a genin and growing into his abilities. It will take time for him to develop mastery of the Jougan, Karma and other techniques learned by his father. He catches on quickly. I wouldn't pay much attention to the word "genius." It gets thrown around a lot. Team fights right now are fine. I'm sure they will eventually transition into showing him do singles matches.

    As far as character, the issue I see with him is that he was designed intentionally to be different from Naruto. Naruto's story itself, never giving up and getting better by trial, is something essential to its popularity as a series. I understand that they don't want to just make a Naruto 2.0, but that's a dangerous point of distinction.

    tl;dr I care less about technique inconsistencies and more about the character's personality.

    He's been fairly consistent in the way he acts. Sorta. It's nowhere near as bad as the out of character Naruto we got in every Naruto filler and movie.

    But yea, different writers and not enough script checking/rewriting. There were also those episodes that made a point of showing Boruto doesn't cheat, right before the movie arc, which is all about Boruto cheating. The anime writers aren't the best at consistent character development or build-up to character arcs.

    I fail to see how abandoning his friend would be in character.
    Even in the movie, Boruto was shown to be uncomfortable with cheating. Especially in the novel. I don't think that's an issue. It showed that he was in a state were he would forget his values if it meant he could get what he really wanted. Here, with both the game and the Kote, it was power.

    "Like always"?
    :blobwhat
    Boruto can be cool headed, but he shows concerned when it was about his friends.
    The situation he currently is in is not like any other he had to go through. Not only that but his guilt about neglecting Mitsuki's feelings makes him even more motivated.
    It's not an inconsistency especially when it comes to the anime.

    Honnestly, it would be bad writing to have Boruto really wanting to help Sumire or Kagura which he didn't spent much time with while having him being cool about Mitsuki being considered a traitor and possibly abandonning him.
    I appreciate that this time, he's directly involved with the issue and isn't helping just for the sake of being good hearted(/just for the sake of having something do in the the arc). I could understand complains if they were about his action in the Nue arc of Mist arc, but this time, it just doesn't work.

    Why would Boruto be cool headed about something that directly concerns him? That directly affect a part fo his life?He wasn't cool headed about his relationship with Naruto either.
    Having an MC who's not invested in that's happening around him isn't a good thing, it's just boring. (And that's also why I have issues with team 10 being in this arc, because they just here for the sake of it, they're barely concerned about Mitsuki's disappearance especially Chocho and Inojin who have at not point given any shit about it).
