We have seen the preview and we know that the upcoming Boruto Naruto Next Generations episode 2016 is titled “sacrifice.” Furthermore, Boruto manga readers are well aware about what’s going to happen next.
In the upcoming episode, we will see Naruto unleash a new level of power that we haven’t seen him produce before. The Seventh Hokage’s new Baryon Mode will enable him to take down the powerful threat endangering Konoha but at a terrible cost.
What Naruto believes is a joint sacrifice is actually a final selfless act by Kurama. After Naruto takes down Isshiki, the Nine Tails will sadly, be no more. This means that no only will we see Naruto’s Baryon Mode animated for the first time. It will also be the last time we see Kurama.
Well, it will be the last time we see Kurama fora while anyway, as Tailed Beast’s technically can’t die permanently. So, yes, Kurama will eventually be resurrected but we don’t know when and we don’t know where. It could be many years after Naruto breaths his final breath but it could also be tomorrow as well.
You can check out the full preview for Boruto episode 216 in the video below.
