That is not a very high bar to raise though. Personal thoughts?
This was the best chapter of the manga so far. Since this is the one I felt the most stuff has happen in. This is one of the three or so chapter I feel it does not need to be redone because it has wasted half the pages. If the pacing of the manga was around this level Boruto would have much less problems. The anime has reached its hundredth episode recently, and like people have discussed on this site; its supporters are getting bored with the anime. Why? Simple, because the plot has been stuck in filler for its entire run because it can't cover anything the manga has done yet without quickly overtaking it because it pacing is that slow.
As for the manga itself this chapter did help make clear that it is basically embodied by this image:
It two to three old men trying to appeal to younger kids to what they think kids would like, but not adding in any sense of self. Normally, when I read a manga I get the sense that the artist is designing stuff off what they would like. Here, it feels all vary safe or it base off what someone other than the artist would like. Which for the villain designs could simply mean Kishimoto is using this manga as a test bed for his cyborg, and Ikemoto isn't really interested in cyborg. Then again we already seen what Ikemoto likes with his redesign of Salad. Beyond that the villains come off as try hard edgy to me instead of any sense of menace because they are constantly trying to hype up how dangerous kara is, and what they done so far isn't that impressive. Then their also the fact that the boys bonding stuff is card collecting. Now I haven't been around kids that often recently certainly not in Japan, but when was the last time card collecting was the hot kitten? That was something popular when my dad was a kid. The last time it was a thing was when yu gi oh was super popular. Also again that is to try and market the actual real life cards; which again doesn't come from passion but a demand from marketing.
Also again the art at best is hit and miss.
