Fantastic news this week has been released about the Boruto Naruto Next Generations manga as Masashi Kishimoto, the original Naruto manga writer, is taking over the Boruto manga. Kishimoto has only acted as a guide in the past for Ukyo Kodachi on Boruto but will be stepping away from Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru to work on Boruto.
This change will begin as of this upcoming manga chapter, Boruto manga chapter 52, which is expected to be released on the 21st of November. This comes as very exciting news as Kishimoto is returning for the possible death of the Seventh Hokage Naruto Uzumaki. A recent manga leak for the upcoming chapter from Viz was released early last week for the chapter and that’s showcased below.
At the end of the previous manga chapter of Boruto, Naruto awakened a new transformation, a level of power that’s greater than what we have seen Naruto reach prior. However, as Kuruma explained, accessing this form will have fatal consequences, which is similar to the Eight Inner Gates technique.
Now, that Naruto has awakened this form, which has caused visible concern for Isshiki, Naruto should be powerful enough to stop him and save Konoha but in doing so, he could die. We will soon see the result of Naruto’s awakening and it will be Kishimoto, the man who gave birth to Naruto who will be the one to decide his ultimate fate.
