  • great chapter as always. i rate it 8/10

    you can watch it at VIZ.com or Mangaplus.

    key moment that i like the most in this particular chapter.. 1. Naruto pass on his signature 'OH right" face onto this son Boruto. 2. Boro turning into a blob just like Madara defeating point turned into Kaguya. 3. Boruto Ōtsutsuki in da house. Nuff said :P

    • 8/10 for me as well. Can't wait to see what comes out of the Koji/Jigen subplot.

    • Sarada breaking the heart was awesome.

      I really disliked how Boruto just beat him by channeling the mark. Like, now he just has access to a ridiculous power that so far looks on par with at least Sage Mode. Which puts Boruto as a 12-13 y old with more power than many Kage.

      I thought it woulda been better if Naruto had woken up, and helped them defeat Boro. As in, Naruto was low on chakra, and gave up some more to revitalize the team, then led the team to beat Boro with the handicap of having far less chakra than normal. Maybe showed them some of his old famous strategies that let him compete with far stronger opponents in Part 1.

      Side-note; I was really surprised when Boro smashed Mitsuki into the ground. It was so abrupt it was almost comical, but I liked that they established he was still very much a threat.

    • I think the chapter was alright. I do think the new author needs to give these new villains more credit though. I hope Boro is restored somehow. There's no real point in really telling readers that he is worst than Jigen in some ways if you're going to kill him and not have him display what makes him worst.

    • Decent chapter. I'm glad they've established that even when channeling Kama they're limited by the chakra they currently have available. He's not always going to have Naruto around to take chakra from. Still not a huge fan of Kawaki's DragonBall energy blast.

    • Yup Kama is just like the Curse Mark in that they use it as a convenient way to come back to life if they die. Orochimaru did that to Sasuke in a more risky fashion. Isshiki did that to at least Jigen. Boruto will be rid of the Kama after his fight with Kawaki that much will most likely happen.

    • the problem isnt that Karma power-up. we all knew it is a curse mark that harbours the powers of Momoshiki and a way for his resurrection.

      the problem i saw is how readily Boruto could access the power. i always assumed it would go step by step of powerups so that at one point the Karma power would grow to the point that Momoshiki's consciousness will begin manifesting inside Boruto and then it will be a fight of consciousness and Boruto will in the end will prevail against his dark destiny. instead Momoshiki can already manifest.

      the bigger problem to me was...

      why the f**k did Momoshiki simply not takeover Boruto completely? what the f**k was stoping him? the end goal of Karma seemed like ressurection of the Otsutsuki, in here Momoshiki, so what was stopping him? Momoshiki already had full control of Boruto and could easily weild power that stomped Boro, an inner that talked of taking on Sasuke and Naruto (BS i call that). and the only real threat to Momoshiki, Sasuke and Naruto, are incapicated. hell, with Naruto here, Momoshiki could have all of the Kurama Chakra for himself and no one would be stoping him. wasnt that Momoshiki's original goal. instead Momoshiki decided to wait for that dark destiny.

      WHY?

    • Elveonora wrote: Why? It established that Momoshiki indeed lives inside of Boruto and plans to take over eventually.

      It's also just been established that Momoshiki can show up whenever he wants and there's no need for Boruto to accumulate power in some shape or form for him to show up. Heck, in a previous chapter, Isshiki stated that it will take some time for Boruto (and Kawaki) to become perfect Otsutsukis with a image of Boruto looking exactly as he did in this chapter. So, it is indeed a sudden convenient BS power-up. This is pretty much the equivalent of Sasuke suddenly activating CS level 2, with Orochimaru taking over, during his fight with Gaara outside of the village and winning.

      I was willing to let the Karma go since they were doing interesting stuff with it that made actual sense. But now, this chapter absolutely ruined it. This falls in line with the BS power-up (along with the BS Jougan) I didn't want to see in the series.

    • Also this might bring up power-scaling issues.

      Boruto is using Momshiki's power, and easily decimated Boro after taking a little chakra from Naruto.

      So if Boruto is going to be using Momoshiki's power to fight Kawaki who will most likely be using Isshiki's power, and it's anywhere close to even? That puts Momoshiki higher in terms of power than we thought if it's anywhere close to Isshiki.

      I was thinking about this as I was typing up my previous comments. Pre-Kinshiki-absorbed Momoshiki was easily dealt with while a weakened Naruto and Sasuke (who is arguably somewhat weakened due to making the portal to Momoshiki's domain) dealt with Post-Kinishiki-absorbed Momoshiki with some effort. Now, are you telling me he is on par with Isshiki, who's been shown (unconvincingly, mind you) to beat Naruto and Sasuke, albeit with all of his effort? Even though, Ishikki used a lot of his hax to to get the win, how is Momoshiki suppose to contend with that with his own special ability that can easily be rendered moot? Another question is, did Momoshiki even keep the power he got from absorbing Kinshiki?

        Loading editor
    • Yes. the power scaling is certainly going downhill. it will be adjusted as the author will need it to.

      @Flat

      no. he didnt anything about it is not the time. he just looked like he wanted to carry out the dark destiny he saw for Boruto.

      why? is the question i ask. other than plot convinience.

      wouldnt Momoshiki want to be resurrected as soon as possible. what does he gain by Boruto going through the dark destiny. Momoshiki all but cares for power of the Chakra fruit and now he suddenly cares about the destiny of an 'inferior lifeform' as he calls them. it just doesnt sit right with his character.

    • For one, Boruto wasn't willingly using Momoshiki's power. Momoshiki possessed his body, hell, Boruto didn't even remember what happened after Momoshiki stopped using his body.

      Also, Momoshiki's previous fighting style was just spamming techniques and absorbing Ninjutsu. If he learns to master the power he has and use it properly, he could easily be up their with Isshiki in terms of techniques.

      Isshiki is a monster in terms of Physicality, and Momoshiki is a monster in terms of the power of Ninjutsu.

      @UltimateDude I'm not sure what you mean by "BS Powerup" considering they've had the Karma for quite some time now and it's been explained to the readers quite a bit in terms of what it can do.

      BS is Sasuke summoning, genjutsuing and reverse summoning Manda in the span of an instant, saving him from a 13km explosion he was tens of feet from the epicenter of.

    • While manifestation of Momoshiki was to be expected, I agree his behaviour seems to be a bit bizarre. Okay, his pattern of speech was the usual one, with all the "inferior creature" and stuff. Still, he showed up exactly at the momemt Sarada was about to be killed, and attacked only Boro without touching any of Team 7 members or Naruto (borrowing his chakra was just a necessity to keep Boruto's body powered). In other words, he appeared to be consciously helping them against Boro. Why would he do that, if his only goal is to take over Boruto's body, and neither Kara nor Konoha are his comrades? The only thought of mine is that he, akin to Orochimaru, reconsidered his ways of life after the death and decided to do things differently this time. Another option is that he's aware of Isshiki as Kara's leaders and considers him a threat as well.

      Nothing in Momoshiki's arsenal can contend with Isshiki's techniques of easily spammable chakra absorbing rods and shrinking. Naruto and Sasuke easily dealt with Momoshiki's techniques while they were defeated by Ishikki's. Nothing would have changed had Momoshiki supposedly mastered his power.

      Ninjutsu that's solely dependent on absorbing other Ninjutsu

      So you're saying that Momoshiki suddenly possessing Boruto, despite it being implied that it will take a while, just in time to save him from getting pummeled to death and absolutely crushing the opposition is not BS?

    • @UltimateDude, firsto off, whether you think something is BS, is purely your opinion and never a fact, just like I think Sasuke surviving was BS is my opinion and not a fact. Now with that out of the way, let's move on to the next stuff.

      Momoshiki absorbed Kinshiku and could theoretically easily use his Byakugan to see such small needles, as the Byakugan and see Tenketsu, which are smaller than the tip of needles, which the Sharingan can't see. Sasuke seemed like he could see Jigen after he shrunk, so I definitely imagine Momoshiki's Byakugan can easily be used to see the needles ahead of time and allow one to dodge them. Not to mention Momoshiki can use the Rasengan to block them as Naruto did too.

      Momoshiki has more jutsu that isn't dependant on absorption rather than dependant on it.

      Lastly, Momoshiki suddenly possessed Boruto, yes, but he implied that "full" possession would take some time, otherwise it'd be no point in him temporarily possessing him, as his statement would have implied doing so would be impossible thus he wouldn't have possessed him to begin with and would have simply thought such a statement to himself.

      Boro wasn't all that. Sarada took out his shinobi-ware core and make his healing factor go out of control. He clearly wasn't on the level he was previously hyped up to be once Team 7 figured out how his techniques worked. Momoshiki appeared out of nowhere, whipped out a Rasengan and put a nearly finished Boro out of commission. Had Boruto and Kawaki had the chakra, they too could have literally did the same thing as they did in earlier chapters and obliterated him with a Rasengan.

      Sasuke surviving the explosion is absolutely BS and makes very little sense. Though, Momoshiki possessing Boruto does indeed make sense, the fact that he came out just in time giving Boruto a needed power-up is dumb.

      Momoshiki's Byakugan doesn't make him untouchable. He barely held on in his fight against Naruto and Sasuke, while Jigen was able to continuously avoid their attacks. Not to mention, Jigen can implant the chakra-absorbing rods into his targets through physical contact, so he'll be even more pressed trying to avoid that. Not saying that the Byakugan are incapable of seeing them, but you do realize that Jigen can shrink the rods down to microscopic level, right?

      Princeharris1993 wrote: Momoshiki has more jutsu that isn't dependant on absorption rather than dependant on it.

      Yeah, that's after he absorbed Kinshiki. And even then, he still used chakra-absorption as a crux. Not to mention, based on his appearance as a ghost, it seems like he lost the power he got from absorbing Kinshiki.

      Momoshiki implied no such thing, he was simply referring to Boruto's dark destiny that he foretold a while ago. So, this renders your entire argument moot.

      Thank you for pointing out the shoddy writing of the manga. You don't introduce an antagonist, imply that he is worse to deal with than the main antagonist, and permanently kill him off in 4 chapters.

      Had Boruto and Kawaki had the chakra, they too could have literally did the same thing as they did in earlier chapters and obliterated him with a Rasengan.

      But, they don't..not even close, which is a good limit to have on unrealized characters. You could also make the same argument for Boruto during his short skirmish with Momoshiki, but it will be just as pointless.

    • I wish they weren't taking this direction with the series.

      I liked Boruto creating Boruto Stream and I liked him coming up with clever ways to utilize his jutsu. I don't like harnessing the power of a dead Ootsuki to be OP asf.

      Idk, guess I'm just tired of "huge power inside protagonist that usually comes out under duress and may have bad side effects but it makes them hella powerful so they eventually learn to control it). It's like everywhere.

      Naruto and Kurama

      Sasuke and Curse Seal

      Meliodas and his demon powers

      Midoriya and One for All

      Eren and his Titan form.

      It's suuuucccchhhhh a common trope. I thought that by making Boruto a lazy prodigy, they'd be getting away from this. He'd have to think of unique ways to advance and continue forward. This kind of storytelling was why I got into Naruto. But nope, just slap an Ootsuki in him and he'll be fine.

    • Well, the power-ups that naruto and Sasuke recieved makes it outright impossible for any prodigy no matter how good/hardworking to catch up.

      Besides, unlike anything you mentioned, Boruto has a unique case in which his karma's greatest strength is that it basically makes situations even by absorbing OP jutsus.

      Besides, the very first episode/chapter showed Boruto to be with a cursed seal, so IDK what you were expecting.

      Boruto doesn't need to surpass Naruto and Sasuke for him to have a compelling story.

      Absorbing OP jutsus doesn't mean things are even, the opponent can still have greater speed/power. But even absorbing jutsu isn't that original, since it's been a thing since the Preta Path.

      Boruto doesn't have a Curse Seal.

      What was I expecting? A more grounded story of Shinobi and how they move into the future. Kawaki said that he'd end Shinobi. Why? That could be intriguing, like why does he feel the system is flawed?

      Sure, they had those power-ups, but that's fine. Maybe it's a technique they learned together but now have to fight each other.

      I certainly didn't expect the Karma mark to make Boruto stronger than Boro of all people (who remember, is stronger than Delta and is in some ways worse than Jigen apparently).

      I didn't expect them to think "Oh to make this series interesting, we have to hand the protagonist a ridiculous power-up that already shoves his power to levels that as of right now look like they at least rival Naruto and Sasuke

      It's not necessary for anyone to catch up with them. A good story can still be written with the two still at the top. Heck, even with all the power-ups that they got, Naruto and Sasuke are barely on par with Hagoromo.

      Besides, unlike anything you mentioned, Boruto has a unique case in which his karma's greatest strength is that it basically makes situations even by absorbing OP jutsus.

      That strength has a limit, in which it can't absorb anything formed out of physical matter. Even with the generic power boost, the Karma didn't make Boruto OP up until now that is.

      Besides, the very first episode/chapter showed Boruto to be with a cursed seal, so IDK what you were expecting.

      Can't speak for Squinty, but I was expecting a generic power boost, not the possession of a dead Otsutsuki that allows Boruto to completely obliterate the opposition.

    • @Squinty97,

      Well, I don't think that you got my point. Sure, The karma makes Boruto OP but it's not like he can tap into it's power any moment. What we saw is the end result of mastering Karama as Jigen showed us that it. Meaning after completely mastering Karma will he become that strong.

      "What was I expecting? A more grounded story of Shinobi and how they move into the future. Kawaki said that he'd end Shinobi. Why? That could be intriguing, like why does he feel the system is flawed?"

      Well that's still left to be covered. We aren't even at that point yet.

      "Absorbing OP jutsus doesn't mean things are even, the opponent can still have greater speed/power. But even absorbing jutsu isn't that original, since it's been a thing since the Preta Path."

      Yes, but we haven't seen any protagonist with that exact power as their main thing. All the people you metioned have raw destructive power. Imagine kind of a luffy vs eneru fight when it comes to Boruto, that's what I'm expecting.

      " certainly didn't expect the Karma mark to make Boruto stronger than Boro of all people (who remember, is stronger than Delta and is in some ways worse than Jigen apparently).

      I didn't expect them to think "Oh to make this series interesting, we have to hand the protagonist a ridiculous power-up that already shoves his power to levels that as of right now look like they at least rival Naruto and Sasuke"

      Once again, that'll will be the case when Boruto MASTERS the karma. You're acting as if Boruto already can tap into all that power. Heck we don't even know if he could activate the Karma seal without Kawaki's resonance. You're really jumping the gun here.

      @UltimaDude

      "It's not necessary for anyone to catch up with them. A good story can still be written with the two still at the top. Heck, even with all the power-ups that they got, Naruto and Sasuke are barely on par with Hagoromo."

      One of the main themes of Boruto AND an important theme in Naruto was the new generation surpassing the old. Kakashi said it multiple times, the five recent Kage, Naruto and even Sasuke have said multiple times that this should happen. If it doesn't hapen, then the show will fail it's purpose.

      "Can't speak for Squinty, but I was expecting a generic power boost, not the possession of a dead Otsutsuki that allows Boruto to completely obliterate the opposition."

      As I said above this power-up will be obtained by him after mastering the Karma seal which probably will bring him a lot of suffering. We don't even know if could activate the Karma seal without Kawaki's resonance let alone tap into even 1% of the power Momoshiki displayed.

        Loading editor
    • @Nekron2

      This chapter showed that he can tap into the power if pushed very far. He didn't mean to activate it, but it activated as soon as he was going to die. So basically whenever he's in trouble he'll be stronger than Naruto and Sasuke at age 12 so that's fine lol

      Yeah, we aren't at that point yet. But it'd be far more interesting to flesh that out than to watch Boruto surpass his father with pretty much no work at all.

      It doesn't matter that we haven't seen the protagonist have it. It's not some innovation lol, and it becomes pretty boring when the protagonist can nullify any tech that is chakra based, considering the entire world and combat style revolves around chakra.

      Also I don't follow One Piece.

      He didn't have to master Karma in order to be more powerful than Boro, did he? And that's when he didn't have it mastered. If the mark can be actually mastered further, it'll be ridiculous.

      Also Kawaki was out of commission when Boruto went OP, so it doesn't need his resonance.

      That theme of generations surpassing past generations was introduced in the Kakuzu arc, it wasn't a main theme of the series. It wasn't even a very well supported theme, since the Hokage for example declined in power pretty much all the way until Naruto. A main theme of the series was an underdog who worked really hard to keep pace with the genius's. An actual good direction for the series would have been if it centered on Boruto being a genius but it wasn't enough to contend with the monsters of the series so he had to be a genius who also worked as hard as a failure. Now, that would be a much better way for him to surpass Naruto and Sasuke in power eventually, not at age 12.

    • I think we're forgetting that it still wasn't Boruto who actually got the boost and destroyed Boro - instead, it was Momoshiki who didn't want his vessel to die so soon. So, the Momoshiki was the one using his insane powers, not Boruto, who technically stayed unconcious while Momoshiki controlled his body. Hence, it's not like Boruto awakened new powers by being pushed too far. Technically, his body became more powerful than Naruto or Sasuke at their age, but both of them weren't possessed by a godlike alien who can pop up any time he considers necessary. Although these two had Kurama and CS respectivelly, Kurama could only give a small fraction of power due to the seal, while the CS didn't have a mind of its own (if we don't count Oro).

      That's a distinction without a difference. Boruto still had a power boost regardless if he was in control of his body or not. It's no different than when Naruto went 4-Tails against Orochimaru, Kurama took full control of Naruto at the time. Are you going to deny that Naruto had a power boost during the confrontation? Boruto may have not have actively awakened the power boost, but it was still conveniently awakened when he was pushed too far.

      Technically, his body became more powerful than Naruto or Sasuke at their age, but both of them weren't possessed by a godlike alien who can pop up any time he considers necessary.

      The bolded text is exactly the problem that this chapter introduced. In Part 1, Naruto demands chakra from Kurama and the chakra he can get is only a small percentage of the fox's power as you said. As for Sasuke, whenever he uses the CS he runs the risk of being incapacitated. Much later, he then had to be put in a near-death state just to advance his CS without dying. His CS level 2 is only on par with 1-Tailed Naruto. These boosts are not that significant compared to the rest of the verse in Part 1 (and are tiny compared to the rest of the verse in Part 2). Boruto, on the other hand, now has power that is on par with the two strongest shinobis in history at the age of 12, which is indeed a problem.

    • For the first part - the control actually matters. It's useful in 1vs1 battle, but as 4-tails Naruto demonstrated, there a great risk of the collateral damage and the direct attack on the allies if they're present. We have yet to know Momoshiki's motives of possessing Boruto, and there's also no guarantee they're benevolent.

      For the second part, also connected to the first one - it's not like Momoshiki's possession isn't a risky deal for Boruto as well. Momoshiki himself implied that Boruto is limited by his own chakra capacity even while using Kama. Also, we already saw with Jigen what damage could be done to the body from the overuse of Kama - although he was an imperfect vessel, Boruto is yet to reach the state when he can use Ootsutsuki powers with minimum risks.

      Man, Momoshiki even didn't do anything so special. He just demonstrated his innate levitation, boost in taijutsu and a massive Rasengan - something created from Naruto's chakra, similarly to the Rasengan given to Boruto to kill Momoshiki himself. Also, at that point, Boro was just an unstable blob which was easy to kick around, the main problem was only that Team 7 was too exhausted to finish him off.

    • @ UltimaDude ,

      "The bolded text is exactly the problem that this chapter introduced. In Part 1, Naruto demands chakra from Kurama and the chakra he can get is only a small percentage of the fox's power as you said. As for Sasuke, whenever he uses the CS he runs the risk of being incapacitated. Much later, he then had to be put in a near-death state just to advance his CS without dying. His CS level 2 is only on par with 1-Tailed Naruto. These boosts are not that significant compared to the rest of the verse in Part 1 (and are tiny compared to the rest of the verse in Part 2). Boruto, on the other hand, now has power that is on par with the two strongest shinobis in history at the age of 12, which is indeed a problem."

      Again, Boruto DOESN'T POSSESS any of the powers shown. What we saw is a glimpse of power that Boruto will receive after mastering the Karma. Unlike Naruto, Boruto cannot awaken this power when he is very angry or pushed too far, only when he is about to die will momoshiki save Boruto so, he can take over the vessel once it is perfect. It's nothing like the kurama thing you mentioned.

It's useful in 1vs1 battle, but as 4-tails Naruto demonstrated, there a great risk of the collateral damage and the direct attack on the allies if they're present. We have yet to know Momoshiki's motives of possessing Boruto, and there's also no guarantee they're benevolent.

      Control is completely irrelevant. Was it not Momoshiki's takeover that allowed Boruto to have a huge increase in stats? Did Momoshiki not takeover Boruto's body just in the nick of time and completely demolish Boro. The answer to those questions is yes; therefore it was a convenient and sudden power-up. Why are you mentioning battles and collateral damage? We're talking about how this power-up impacts the plot.

      Everyone is limited by their own chakra capacity. Momoshiki immediately remedy this by absorbing some of Naruto's chakra. So that is a moot point. Momoshiki suddenly emerging destroys the notion of Boruto needing time to become a perfect vessel. He made no mention of it and only referred to the dark destiny he alluded to many chapters back. Momoshiki can show up at any time he wants.

      So who, besides god-tiers, can casually obliterate the bloated Boro? No one.

      The power is still within Boruto, whether he has control over it or not. Boruto almost dying is being push too far and Momomshiki made no mention of Boruto becoming a perfect vessel. He only talked about the dark destiny he alluded to many chapters back, implying that he merely wish to witness what's in store for Boruto.

      You completely missed my point there. However, I'm not even going to bother restating my point since the person that it was addressed to already addressed it.

    • Just a theory here but what if in the 1st chapter/episode where we saw Boruto and Kawaki fighting, we assumed Kawaki went rouge and destroyed the leaf village, almost like another Sasuke. But what if it was actually Boruto that lost control because he was being controlled and Kawaki was actually just trying to save him?

    • The main question here is: Did the writers have all the plot figured out from the beginning? Maybe they just wanted the end of the story, an impactful first scene for the manga to attract all of the fans to this spin-off. Probably they are still figuring out how to get to that battle...

      Yeah, no. Boruto lamented Kawaki went rogue and the latter said that he will send Boruto to where Naruto is... whatever that means.
