Although Boruto anime isn’t able to get more fans due to the subpar storytelling, the manga is surely making quite a nice progress. Thanks to the monthly release schedule, we are able to get new plot points and I truly hope that it will become a weekly manga in the near future and help the anime take off as well. So, since the latest chapter of the manga is out; in this article, we’re going to have a look at what to expect from the upcoming Boruto chapter 28.
Before we begin with what will likely happen in the upcoming chapter, let’s have a quick recap of what happened in the chapter 27. Since Naruto brought Kawaki into his house, and with him and Boruto living together, the situation was bound to get ugly as both the teenagers are always ready to fight. So, although the entire chapter showed us the friction between the two of them, it also was able to establish a groundwork for their new relationship. It seems that being linked due to the ‘karma’ seal has made Kawaki open up to Boruto as he shared his past with him. He told him how Jigen used to experiment on children and revealed that he was the only one who survived those experiments. Later he suggested to Boruto that they should research what the karma seal really is together, and find out how to get rid of it once and for all.
After this encounter, it seems that the two are gonna work together for a while. They will certainly have a rivalry going on, but they won’t be at each other’s throats all the time. So, what can you expect from the upcoming chapter 28 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Let’s discuss it!
Boruto Chapter 28 Spoilers, Predictions
Even though the guys are now talking, Boruto is still angry with Kawaki as he broke Himawari’s vase. He tells him that he needs to make it up to her somehow and storms off. Kawaki thinks of getting her a new vase, but having no money to buy one, Naruto tells him to accompany him and they’ll see what they can do.
Going by the current progression of events, it seems that the next chapter is going to focus on the Naruto-Kawaki dynamic as he shows the teenager around Konoha, and maybe suggest him to enroll in the academy. It’s a long stretch, and even if he does suggest him to join the academy, Kawaki will only accept the proposal very reluctantly. This will then lead to Boruto-Kawaki relationship to resemble that of Naruto-Sasuke relationship in the beginning of the show. However, all this won’t happen in the very next chapter and will require a little buildup.
Since the chapter is still a month away, there are no official spoilers or leaks available at the moment that we can share. We can only make predictions of what can happen based on the current story. So, going by the latest chapter, we can safely say that at least a few of the upcoming chapters will focus on the developing relationships between Kawaki and the Uzumaki household, and maybe reveal more things about Kawaki’s past and throw some more light on the Karma seal.
