The Future of Ninja Adventures

The Shinobi world is constantly evolving and changing, and so are the ninjas who live in it. The transition from Naruto to Boruto shows how the new generation of Shinobi inherits the legacy of their predecessors but also faces new challenges and opportunities. The future of ninja adventures is uncertain, but also exciting and promising. As Boruto says at the beginning of his story,

"This is not a story about the boy who wanted to be Hokage. This is a story about me and my friends. And this is the beginning of a new era of Shinobi!"

Opening and Summary of Boruto

Boruto begins with a flash-forward scene, where a teenage Boruto faces a mysterious enemy named Kawaki in a ruined Konoha. Kawaki declares that the age of shinobi is over, and Boruto prepares to fight him with his Karma seal and a prosthetic arm that resembles Sasuke’s. The scene then shifts to the present, where a young Boruto attends the Ninja Academy with his friends and classmates. Boruto is the son of Naruto, the Seventh Hokage, and Hinata, a member of the Hyuga clan. He has a sister named Himawari and a mentor named Sasuke, who is Naruto’s best friend and rival. Boruto is a talented and prodigious ninja, but he resents his father for neglecting his family due to his busy work. Boruto wants to prove himself to his father and the world, but he also cheats and takes shortcuts, such as using a scientific ninja tool called the Kote.

Boruto’s life changes when he meets a mysterious boy named Kawaki, who has a mark on his palm that is similar to Boruto’s. Boruto learns that Kawaki is a vessel for Isshiki Otsutsuki, an alien being who wants to harvest the chakra of the planet. Boruto and Kawaki form a bond and try to stop Isshiki and his followers, the Kara, from fulfilling their plan.

Ending of Boruto

Boruto ends with a climactic battle between Boruto, Kawaki, Naruto, Sasuke, and Isshiki. Isshiki manages to implant his Karma seal on Kawaki again, but he is weakened by Naruto’s new form, the Baryon Mode, which consumes both his and Kurama’s chakra. Naruto and Sasuke are severely injured by Isshiki, who tries to escape with Kawaki. However, Boruto intervenes and uses his Karma seal to teleport them to another dimension. There, Boruto reveals that he has been possessed by Momoshiki Otsutsuki, another alien being who gave him the Karma seal. Momoshiki tries to kill Isshiki and Kawaki, but Boruto resists his control and fights back.

Boruto and Kawaki manage to defeat and kill Isshiki, but they also lose their Karma seals in the process. Boruto and Kawaki return to Konoha, where they are greeted by their friends and families. Naruto and Sasuke recover from their injuries, but they lose some of their powers. Naruto loses Kurama, who sacrificed himself to activate the Baryon Mode, and Sasuke loses his Rinnegan, who was stabbed by Borushiki. Boruto and Kawaki vow to protect the world from any other Otsutsuki threats, and they also promise to remain friends and brothers.

Prediction of Boruto Shippuden (Spoilers Ahead)

Boruto Shippuden is the sequel to Boruto, which takes place after a time skip of several years. Boruto Shippuden will follow the adventures of Boruto and his friends as they grow up and face new challenges and enemies. Boruto Shippuden will also reveal what happened in the flash-forward scene, where Boruto and Kawaki fight in a destroyed Konoha. Some of the possible predictions for Boruto Shippuden are:

  1. Himawari will awaken her Byakugan, a special eye technique that grants her 360-degree vision and the ability to see the chakra points of her opponents.
  2. Sarada unlocks the byakugo seal. She is however incompetent when it comes to medical ninjutsu
  3. Boruto and Sarada will develop their romantic feelings for each other, and eventually confess and become a couple.
  4. Now that Naruto is assumed dead. This means that Konoha will likely have elected a new Hokage and, as is quite clear, It should be expected for the village to have appointed someone else and the likely candidate for this position would be none other than Sakura Haruno.
  5. Momoshiki becomes an ally and fights with Boruto against the enemies.
  6. Sumire and Sarada come up with a plan to reverse the effect of Eida's ability of “omnipotence”.
