If this turns out to be true, how will Sarutobi Konohamaru become the eighth Hokage of Konoha in the Boruto series?
The Boruto series showed us Naruto Uzumaki achieving his dream, which is to become Hokage. And besides him, there is another character with similar dreams, even admitting that Naruto’s rival, this person is Konohamaru.
Sarutobi Konohamaru is the grandson of Sarutobi Hiruzen and now a talented Jonin in charge of Konoha’s “New Team 7”. But will he later become the eighth Hokage of Konoha?
1. Konohamaru is the most suitable candidate to become the Eighth Hokage by far
Of course, after Naruto, the Seventh Hokage, the next chosen one will be called the Eighth Hokage. Konohamaru is currently the most suitable candidate to become Konoha’s next Hokage, if we look at his clan and relationships with the other Hokages.
As the grandson of the Third Hokage, Sarutobi Hiruzen, and the (unofficial) disciple of the Seventh Hokage, Naruto Uzumaki, it is obvious that Konohamaru is currently a strong candidate for the position of Eighth Hokage in the Boruto series. .
2. Although currently there are still no outstanding achievements, but Konohamaru has always been a reliable shinobi of Konoha in Boruto’s era.
Perhaps up until now, in Boruto’s era, Sarutobi Konohamaru still hasn’t had an outstanding achievement that he can be proud of. But in this new part, Konohamaru has always been a reliable shinobi of the Seventh Hokage in many different missions.
Some of it was the mission to go outside of Konoha, and even the duty to supervise the Chunin exam, he also took on quite a few other roles.
3. If Konohamaru becomes the Eighth Hokage, he might not get as much attention as Kakashi did.
Hatake Kakashi became the Sixth Hokage at the end of the Naruto series, also for this reason, the details of him holding the position of Hokage of Konoha do not have many highlights. It is possible that Konohamaru will become the Eighth Hokage by the end of the Boruto story, although it seems to repeat Kakashi’s case, it is very likely to happen again.
Because of this, if Konohamaru is really the eighth Hokage in the Boruto series, it is likely that he will not be noticed by many readers when he becomes the character holding this position.
4. Although Sarada is still one of the candidates, she seems to be a better fit for the Ninth Hokage.
Uchiha Sarada is also one of the most talented shinobi of Boruto’s time, and most likely she will become the Ninth Hokage later. Based on what we’ve seen so far, Sarada is still a very good candidate and suitable for the position of Hokage, as she also has the fire will of Konoha.
In addition to Sarada becoming the second female Hokage, she is also the first Uchiha clan to hold the position, which is unique to Sarada. What do you think? Please write comments!
