Naruto simply made a lethal vow in opposition to Boruto – and followers are left questioning if father and son aren’t now headed for a tragic collision course. (Major SPOILERS Follow!) In Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 57, Naruto should lastly share the darkish insights he realized throughout the battle with Isshiki Otsutsuki together with his fellow Kage. That contains the truth that Boruto’s Karma seal marks him because the chosen vessel for Momoshiki Otsutsuki’s resurrection, which begs an apparent however awkward query. Only Gaara has the mettle to talk up and handle the elephant within the room: If Boruto goes full Momoshiki, does Naruto have the center to take out his personal son?
According to Naruto: “I’ll do what needs to be done. As Hokage.”
If nothing else, Boruto has saved Naruto followers intrigued with the way in which it juxtaposes the current occasions of the sequence with the ominous flash-forward scene that opened it. That scene featured teenage Boruto and teenage Kawaki battling it out over a destroyed Hidden Leaf village, with each their Otsutsuki Karma powers in full show. Kawaki drops the ominous trash-talk that he’ll ship Boruto “where I sent the Seventh Hokage.” That’s at all times been a giant level of fan principle focus, and Boruto’s Kara and Isshiki arcs have quickly remodeled all preconceived notions of how that scene – and that quote – will play out.
Naruto has been considerably Nerfd in energy as a result of demise of Kurama throughout the battle with Isshiki. Even although Naruto claims to have the ability to do his responsibility as Hokage if it involves stopping Momoshiki-Boruto (which we do not imagine in any respect), he might not have the ability essential to do it.
When Momoshiki took possession of Boruto’s physique after the battle with Isshiki, he was capable of cripple Sasuke and practically kill each Sasuke, Naruto, and Kawaki unexpectedly. Boruto’s physique has solely been 80% transformed into an Otsutsuki, so there may be good purpose for each Gaara and the remainder of the Kage to fret about what might occur to the world if the full-fledged Momoshiki will get unleashed.
It’s laborious to imagine that Naruto would ever really face Boruto in a battle to the demise. Still, the pair’s father/son relationship began from a really strained place in the beginning of Boruto; if Naruto has to significantly combat – and even simply wound – Boruto, even with good purpose, it might conceivably fracture their bond in an irreparable means.
