Wow! That’s all I can say about the previous Boruto Naruto Next Generations manga chapter, which only dropped hours ago. The previous chapter revealed more about the Divine Tree, The Ten-Tails, Boruto’s role in all of this and a new transformation for Naruto.
First, let’s talk about the latter. Naruto will unleash a brand-new transformation against Isshiki in Boruto manga chapter 52. Already, this form appears to be much stronger than anything we have seen Naruto unleash to date, with Isshiki visibly worried after Naruto awakened it.
However, this power comes at the ultimate cost. Kurama has confirmed, more than once in the previous chapter, that this will be the end for Naruto after he uses this transformation. It’s likely the only way Konoha can escape destruction against Isshiki, with their Hokage giving his life away to save everyone.
Boruto manga chapter 52 will now showcase Naruto’s final battle and also possibly his death as well. However, we do know that Naruto is still alive later on in the story, which means that somehow, he survives this. I believe that Sasuke might have something to do with this, reviving him in the same way Nagato saved the dead Konoha villages in Naruto Shippuden.
It’s also possible that this power might cripple Naruto instead of killing him by finding a loop-hole through instant healing such as Might Guy did after unlocking all the Inner Gates. Although, no matter how Naruto gets out of this one or even, if he gets out of this one, the next chapter of Boruto is going to be amazing!
The official release date for Boruto manga chapter 52 will be on the 20th of Novemeber, with leaked manga and official spoilers being released in the couple of days prior to that.
