The latest chapter of Boruto has been released and it was quite a normal one, devoid of any action or fights, but a much needed one to show the character developments. If you’ve read the chapter, then we’ll be discussing what to expect from the upcoming Boruto chapter 29, and also have a quick recap of what’s happened till now. So, a spoiler alert is in effect starting now if you haven’t yet read the current chapter!
The chapter 28 began with Naruto and Kawaki on a walk through the village when they encounter Sarada at a Taiyaki shop. Naruto orders one for himself and asks Kawaki to get one to. He gets a chocolate one and is surprised by how good it tastes. Kawaki isn’t used to this kind of thing and he’s always on the lookout for enemies, so when some kid bumps into him, he’s quick to respond and goes in to attack him. However, he’s stopped by Naruto before something bad happens. The trio then goes to Ino’s flower shop to buy a vase. Kawaki picks out a vase and Ino offers to add flowers to it, but it brings back some old memories of the experiments conducted on him by Jigen. Naruto hugs him and consoles him by saying that he’s safe in the village. They then gets the vase and the flowers and go back when Boruto hands Kawaki glue and tells him to fix the vase he’s broken.
Meanwhile, we see that Kashin Koji and Delta have arrived and are standing on the outskirts of the village. Koji says that in the past, there was a special division who perceived the chakra of everyone entering the village, and that the division is still operational. So, anyone who’s chakra is not registered can be identified. Telling this, he asks Delta to wait for him there in order to not create a scene and he enters the village with ease and without any issues.
Who is Kashin Koji?
The chapter was lighthearted to begin with, putting a few moments aside, and the conclusion of the chapter left us all at a cliffhanger as Kashin Koji was able to enter the village with ease. This confirms that he belongs to the Hidden Leaf village and joined Kara some point in the past!
I am sure that you’ve already read about all the theories floating around the Koji is actually Jiraiya, but I don’t think that any of them make sense. Granted that Koji is able to use the Rasengan and even summon Toads, which were signature techniques of Jiraiya, it still doesn’t make sense that both of them are in fact the same person!
However, here’s where it gets interesting! A theory posted on Reddit says, “I think Koji Kashin is one of Minato’s teammates from his genin team. If Minato was alive today (figuratively speaking of course) he would’ve been in his fifties, almost exactly the same age as Jiraiya when he died in fact. So a teammate of equivalent age, who also learned from Jiraiya and might’ve been taught the Rasengan by Minato would be the perfect candidate, and as a teammate to Konoha’s Yellow Flash, he’d probably of earned enough of a reputation that in order to keep a low profile, things like a mask and fake name would be a must have.”
With all the information we have right now about who Kashin Koji is, this theory makes the most sense after all! The genins are always paired up in teams, and since Minato’s teammates were never revealed, it’s likely that one of them was Koji.
Boruto Chapter 29 Spoilers
Coming to the spoilers for the next chapter, Koji is definitely going to find out where Kawaki is and will try to take him back with him. However, that’s not going to be an easy task considering that he’s staying with the Hokage, and so Naruto’s going to step in to save him.
There will be some kind of confrontation between the two ninjas, however I don’t think that they will have an all-out battle at this point. It will also be interesting to see how Naruto reacts on seeing Koji for the first time, and if he knows his real identity. A lot of people think that the next chapter will reveal who Kashin Koji is, however, I am sure that it will still remain a mystery; at least for the time being!
Moreover, there’s Delta as well who won’t be able to sit idly and will likely cause a massive commotion in order to aid Koji so that he can use the distraction to grab Kawaki and take him along. The next chapter will either be a great chapter that will reveal a lot of new details and add value to the entire plot, or it will be a dud where Naruto brings out his strongest jutsu, the Talk no Jutsu!
Boruto Chapter 29 Release Date
