‘Boruto: Naruto Next Generations’ episode 117 spoilers
Lemon was introduced in the latest episode as a sweet and cheerful lady. However, her demeanor changed quickly by the end of the installment when Konohamaru and Boruto decided to visit her home. She appeared to be in a ritual and shunned her new friends as a creepy looking man watched from a close distance. The preview showed that “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” episode 117 will explain more about Lemon’s family.
The “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” episode 117 summary says Lemon comes from a family with the task of protecting their village from a monster called Souma. The name translates to “running horse” as OrganicDinosaur reported. The short preview also showed Lemon being kept in a room that looks like a jail. The only good thing about it is that she appears to be smiling again while talking with Boruto and Konohamaru.
Konohamaru and Boruto will try to rescue Lemon and exactly why she is being held captive in her own home will be explained in “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” episode 117. There is a major complication, though. Rescuing Lemon is not an official mission, and since it is outside Hidden Leaf’s jurisdiction, saving her is forbidden. However, Boruto and Konohamaru look resolved to do it anyway.
