The latest preview for the Boruto Naruto Next Generations anime has finally showcased BoruShiki’s awakenings. During the battle between Boro and Team 7, Boruto is pushed to the limits and Momoshiki awakens from within.
As manga readers no know and anime watchers will soon discover, the Karma mark that Boruto has is a seal that allows an Ōtsutsuki Clan member to upload their genetic DNA into an individual and be reborn. This how the Ōtsutsuki Clan members manage to live forever. Momoshiki, the Ōtsutsuki Clan member tat Boruto killed, attached his Karma mark to Boruto and in the manga, the genetic transformation is over 80% complete.
This means that Boruto’s body is 80% Ōtsutsuki and as a result, it’s theorized in the manga by both Amado and Kawaki, that Boruto can use Ōtsutsuki Clan exclusive jutsu’s. An example of this is revealed when Momoshiki takes over Boruto’s body, with a Byakugan being awakened. Boruto currently doesn’t have Byakugan abilities and even with Momoshiki’s soul being within Boruto, it should be able to manifest in a body that cannot awaken it.
