  • Early leaked pages and summaries are floating around now, so here we go.

    Most noteworthy stuff:

    • We've now officially moved from the Ao Arc into the Kawaki Arc.
    • The female Kara Inner with the I tattooed on her forehead is named デルタ = Delta or Deruta (Deruta *is* an uncommon Japanese name). I would suggest using Delta for now, but switching to Deruta if that's what Viz uses, because they usually know what's up with names.
    • Jigen and Delta are having a fancy meal; Jigen seems to be in love with her. Delta is impatient about the Vessel's recovery, kicks and destroys the table, and then Jigen clenches his fist and resets the table and everything on it back to the way it was. Another Genjutsu room, or some other power?
    • Back in the forest, Boruto's karma resonates with Kawaki's as he approaches, causing pain to shoot through their hands. Kawaki stirs.
    • Kawaki is having a dream of his childhood. His biological father was an abusive drunk who called him worthless ("empty") and beat him. He sold Kawaki to Jigen for a hefty sum..
    • We see Jigen without the hood. He's got a mohawk/ponytail combo hairstyle, and could give Orochimaru a run for his money in a creepy glare contest. Jigen says he's Kawaki's father now and reaches out to him.
    • Kawaki awakens as Team 7 approaches and goes on the defensive; they quickly retreat. Kawaki cloaks himself in a sphere of chakra that blasts a crater into the ground around him. He thinks that they're with Kara and are trying to capture him. Nearby, Delta meets with Kashin Koji, who is angry because he said he'd handle it himself. She said she brought one of the Outers with her. Brief discussion on both fronts about Boruto also having the Karma.
    • As Kawaki and Team 7 are about to face off, Delta's Outer appears and attacks Kawaki. His name is 我婁 = Garō. He's a huge man wearing a gas mask; he's missing his lower jaw and seems to have prosthetic pincer claws for hands. It seems that he disliked Ao and has a grudge against Kawaki because Kawaki is the reason he lost his jaw.
    • Kawaki dashes behind Garō and prepares to attack, partially transforming his right arm and hand into a large sickle-like blade. This attack looks remarkably similar to Jugo's partial Sage Transformation, in particular his "Destroying Axe Fist". The chapter ends with them clashing and Kawaki taunting Garō.

    Given his father's violent outbursts and his apparent Sage Transformation ability, there seems to be a strong possibility that Kawaki is actually from Jūgo's Clan -- assuming that the flashback is accurate and he hasn't been experimented on.

    This also seems to introduce a role reversal in the hero / rival dynamic versus Naruto and Sasuke, as we now have the hero with a mental/spiritual ability, and the rival with the physical ability.

    • Jigen is a wizard it seems. Also Kawaki being from Jugo's clan would be a nice touch me thinks. I wonder what the heck is going on...

      • Otsutsuki related seal
      • Kawaki having it and possibly other Kara members
      • Kara members being OP and somewhat inhuman

      What are the connections? ._.

      That was kind of the main element of the whole story of the original series. So, I wouldn't doubt there would be something similar for this.

      But Boruto's not becoming Hokage, Sarada is.... So, atleast there wouldn't be a Hokage thing, believe it!

    • I'm... perplexed. In a way this chapter initially felt more like Dragon Ball than Naruto, to me... mainly because of Kawaki's "aura burst" that destroyed the ground and because of Jigen's powers.

      Now I'm still perplexed at Kawaki, but Jigen re-creating his dinner may be related in some way to the Creation of all Things?

      About Kawaki, as Elveonora said it would be a nice touch if he was from Juugo's clan, but seeing how this manga tends to focus on ninja tech rather than "plain" ninjas, I feel he's more like of a modified human... some sort of "Terminator"

      It's awesome. I liked Juugo's ability, and the curse mark/ physical transformations drew me to Naruto.

    • I might have missed it, but does every official Kara member (excluding agents like Koji and Outers) have Otsutsuki mark? Kawaki did question team 7`s affiliation with Kara when he saw Boruto`s mark.

      Koji is also an official Kara member, agents = Outers, while Koji is an Inner.

    • I think Jigen's new table is a advance time space jutsu. Like summoning a past version of the table. Note that the food and wine were untouched, even though Jigen drank all of his wine.

    • Entrancement wrote: I think Jigen's new table is a advance time space jutsu. Like summoning a past version of the table. Note that the food and wine were untouched, even though Jigen drank all of his wine.

      It's probably a technique that warps reality and such, like Izanagi and Creation of All things jutsu(or whatever it's name was), which shows that Jigen can be a very complicated foe for the heroes to fight against.

      I think Kawaki's Jugo like body transform thing is his Curse mark power and even the blasting ones.

      The only thing I don't get is, if Kawaki was always in the hands of Kara, why were they sending him off inside a blimp? Or was it Kawaki's attempt to escape Kara? I guess it was that.

      Boy, did the writers try hard to get a new set up of a tragic backstory for the new series chatacters. Guess the cliche parent abuse as a child was their only idea. But I wonder if that would influence anything from Kawaki's current story? Is he gonna feel jealous of Boruto and his relationship with his friendly, kind dad?

      If he's related to Juugo, it would actually explain a lot. After all, his clan was known for violent outbursts.

    • Jigen might have:

      • power to rewind time, but only inanimate objects
      • creation of all things-like power

      One way or another, the Kara people are more powerful than Akatsuki, imo, or at least some of them are.

      We are still long way away from being able to compare Kara with akatsuki. While Jigen does seem to be OP as hell and Koji isn`t shaby himself, we are yet to see what they are really capable off. And maybe is because we are too used with them at this point, but akatsuki was pretty OP if we thing about it, even prior of TTJ and things like that. They had the rinnegan and MS, 2 immortals with ridiculous abilities, a master puppeteer, arguably the best ninja swordsman of the mist of all time, an explosion release master and then you had Obito, which is a completely other story.

      I kind of have no doubt that eventually Kara will prove to be more powerful, but we are yet to see what everybody can do from their group.

    • Wonder what Kara even wants, I mean sure we generally understand Kawaki is some sort of 'vessel' due to him having the same Karma mark given to Boruto by Momoshiki but vessel for whom or what. When we see Kawaki in the future he seems to still be himself I think. Interesting side note, Kawaki's attire looks remarkably similar to the attire of one of his classmates whose name escapes me (anime only dude with the staff and the rocks).

      The destroyed table was still there, so it's not a rewind time power. It's also not creation-of-all-things-like, because it was real food.

      Seems to me he simply has the power to store and retrieve items with his hand. The way he used his hand with Kawaki suggests he was about to store him too.

    • Kind of like a reverse summoning and summoning jutsu all in one.

    • So I guessed it before and mind you this is my first comment in these posts so if anyone else sees it then fine, but are the Kara members sorta kinda like the Chronos Numbers from Black Cat. Their not copy paste but look up the numerals and their locations on the revealed ones so far outside of Kawaki and III all the numbers are in the same or close enough places.

    • Kara are the villains of the new series, so due to power scale and all, they will be undoubtedly stronger than Akatsuki, but will they be cooler or pose a bigger threat than Akatsuki?

      During the era of Akatsuki, they were a group of mysterious S Rank shinobi with mysterious powerful abilities, and the main characters weren't that powerful during those times against them. They barely won with combined help and stuff like that. Sasori was defeated by Sakura with Chiyo's help. Hidan was killed by Shikamaru with alot of plan and help from Kakashi and the rest. Kazuku was also defeated by Naruto with Kakashi and the rest of the team. Deidera while being outclassed by Sasuke, was still going to almost kill him at certain points. And we know the rest.

      While presently, Kara so far, has a ex shinobi cyborg kind of guy(Ao), A Jiraya wanna be, a guy who can blast things, a lady who can kick things pretty hard(a dinner table), a guy who has interest over that lady and can warp out a dinner table(Boy, does Brock now have competition?) Vs The five strongest villages, allied by the tailed beast, with two of the stongest shinobi in the world against them. The tables are basically turned, with the good guys being more powerful and more of a threat agains the bad guys, but for how long?

      Well, last time we saw a creepy bad guy giving a kid a curse mark, was when he wanted to steal his body. Maybe Jigen is an Otutsuki? Or half of it? Or a descendent of it? Maybe he's preparing Kawaki for the vessel of someone else? Someone who's actually pullong the strings behind Kara?

      Thekillman wrote: If he's related to Juugo, it would actually explain a lot. After all, his clan was known for violent outbursts.

      Well to be honest, it seemed he was just another jerk-ish drunken abusive father. Or wouldn't Jigen have any interest on that guy too? Or maybe Kawaki has something special from his mother's side. Which brought to the father to hate him? This seal was given to the descendents of the Otutsuki's right?

      We don't know yet. But many people have pointed out that if he truly is relate to Juugo, then violent outbursts are in their nature

      What Haku cliche?

    • Meaning Kawaki`s father hates his wife and son because of their presumably special powers (Jugo`s clan power, assuming that the mother is from their clan). Similar to how Haku`s father revolted on Haku and his mother because of their ice release.

      So what do you think, is the Kawaki we see in the future actually him (Boruto makes it sound like it is the way he's talking to him) or is he now possessed by Jigen or some other Big Bad?

      No, not at all. Juugo's clan has innate aggression they can't help. Haku's situation was purely because of social status. One has a choice, the other has not.

      Maybe, but the real question would be, why a dinner table of all things be inside of such a potentiel tool storage?

        Loading editor
    • Maybe, Delta has destroyed tables and whatnot a bunch of times before. So, he stores a spare table or two around? However, I personally think he has some kind of reality or matter manipulation power.
