Boruto Manga Chapter 80: Sarada unlocking the Mangekyou Sharingan, while Sasuke comes to Boruto’s aid
Boruto Manga Chapter 80 opens with Mitsuki trying to kill Boruto, accusing him of committing various crimes. Sarada Uchiha is the only one who remains unaffected by Mitsuki’s actions.
Shortly thereafter, Sasuke arrives and advises his daughter to take a break while he and his allies pursue Boruto, who has swapped places with Kawaki. Sarada is surprised that her father is unaware of the situation. Fortunately, Sumire is aware of what’s going on and makes an educated guess to assist Sarada.
Sarada made a self-centered request to her father, which he granted. Sasuke was surprised because Sarada awakened the Mangekyou Sharingan while pleading with him for help. She wanted her father to save Kawaki, who was currently Konohagakure’s top adversary.
During the mission, Inojin finds the enemy and tries to resolve the situation, but Sasuke suddenly appears and takes Konohagakure’s enemy away. He confesses that his actions were motivated solely by his love for his daughter.
Sasuke Uchiha explained to the young boy that his own memories could not be relied upon. Whenever he doubted himself, he always trusted his daughter. This was the sole reason why he took Sarada’s side and assisted her.
Eida and Daemon also made an appearance, with Eida apologizing for her intrusion and expressing her dislike for what Kawaki had become. She was unable to accept Kawaki’s cowardice. Boruto was determined to become stronger and resolve the conflict with Kawaki once and for all.
Meanwhile, Code had been scheming in the background all this time and aimed to make the protagonist pay for taking everything he held dear.
