Times are good for Boruto fans as the anime show is in the Chunin Exams arc and inching towards a really good story, and the manga is also making amazing progress. The latest chapter of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations was quite hyped, mostly because of the appearance of Kawaki, and fans are looking forward to the upcoming chapters as well to learn more about the future rival of Boruto!
What Happened in Boruto Chapter 24?
The chapter begins by showing two new members of Kara – Delta and Jigen – where Delta is complaining about Kashin Koji and wondering what’s taking him so long to retrieve the vessel. We even see the mysterious ability of Jigen, but not much is known about it yet.
On the other side, we see Boruto and the others standing next to Kawaki as he lay there injured and unconscious. All of a sudden, Boruto’s Karma seal starts throbbing and Kawaki feels the pain as well.
We see Kawaki’s flashback where Jigen is seen making a deal with Kawaki’s father and becomes his guardian!
Back in the present, Kawaki regains consciousness and asks if Boruto and the rest are pursuers from Kara to which they refuse. Kashin Koji is watching everything from a distance and Delta arrives there as well.
Kawaki is flustered and thinks that the Konoha ninjas are here to kill him and just when he’s about to attack them, Boruto shows him that he has the Karma seal as well which shocks both Kawaki and Delta.
Just then, Garou enters the battlefield to retrieve the vessel (which is Kawaki) and starts talking. Soon, he’s seen attacking and just then, Kawaki shows us a glimpse of his abilities as he can shape-shift and make weapons out of his body parts. Garou blocks his attack and mentions that he’s grown weak and that’s the end of the chapter!
Boruto Chapter 25 Spoilers:
For those who still don’t know who Kawaki is, and why this recent development is so important, let me make that clear for you. Kawaki is the same guy we see in the very first chapter fighting Boruto in the destroyed Konoha village.
So, when he showed up at the end of chapter 23, the fans were really excited to see what will be happening next!
Based on the spoilers making rounds on the internet, the upcoming arc is going to be Kawaki arc and will show us more about his powers and likely explore his true origins as well. Moreover, it should also give us a glimpse on why he’s going to destroy the Leaf Village and what will be his motivations to do so.
However, coming back to Boruto chapter 25, we’ll likely be seeing more of Kawaki’s powers. For now, it seems that the boy can manipulate his body parts and shape-shift them into weapons.
He too has “Karma” on his hand so if we go by the events that lead to Boruto receiving the Karma on his hand, then we can safely assume that Kawaki is strong enough to have defeated an Otsutsuki clan member.
According to the spoilers, we are going to see more of Kawaki’s abilities and may be his Jutsu capabilities as well. For now, we only know that he can manipulate his body to create weapons, but that won’t be the extent of what he can do considering that he’s going to be the biggest rival of Boruto in the future.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 25 – Release Date:
The manga releases new chapters monthly, so the upcoming chapter 25 will be released next month. The chapter will officially come out on 9th July, 2018 and you can read it either on Viz or Crunchyroll.
So, let us know your views about the upcoming Boruto chapter 25! What do you think is going to happen? And do you think Kawaki is strong enough to take down both Naruto and Sasuke?
