Boruto’s team managed to save the Hokage, but the Leaf still has its days numbered!
The latest great revelations made by the anime of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations have changed the cards a lot, leading the viewer to the realization that certain enemies they hoped never to see again are in fact far from out of the game. As we expected, the key to all of this seems to be karma, which is now established to be a tool through which the Otsutsuki guarantee their survival even after the death of their body.
Although we had actually already obtained clues in the past, for example during the clash between Naruto, Sasuke and Jigen, it was actually the fight between the new Team 7 and Boro that confirmed it definitively. After having almost completely defeated the Kara Organization’s inner, in fact, an unexpected event arose has seriously endangered the lives of the young shinobi. It was to free the boys from the tragic situation the Momoshiki manifestation, thanks to which our characters were able to completely eliminate the villain and bring Naruto back.
It was the Seventh Hokage thereat stake more relevant than the clash. On the other hand, the characters had decided to face Boro just to save him, and in the end they managed to get him out. Despite having suffered some injuries, Naruto was able to return home safe and sound, finding, among other things, also Sasuke in excellent condition.
The danger, however, is far from escaped. It is only a matter of time before Jigen, or rather Isshiki, come back to attack the Leaf Village again, and it is therefore necessary that the two strongest ninja of the village come up with something to be able to counter the enormous power of the Otsutsuki. Whether it is Naruto’s power-up that we have had the opportunity to observe in the new opening? All that remains is to see.
Meanwhile, our young ninjas are also enjoying their break. The anime took the opportunity to add new content originals that explored the psyche of the characters, including Kawaki, and it looks like it will resume with its original episodes, at least for next week.
