Naruto Synopsis Teases Boruto’s Worst Nightmare
It’s been a while since Naruto Uzumaki stared death in the face, but it’s happening in the anime right now. If you didn’t know, all eyes are on the hero right now as Boruto: Naruto Next Generations pitted its heroes against a truly gnarled foe. The Otsutsuki are back, and thanks to a new episode synopsis, fans know Boruto’s worst nightmare is about to become a reality.
The update is courtesy of Nite_Baron and Abdul_S17 on Twitter. The pair shared a recent Shonen Jump page detailing Episode 218, and that’s where fans learned what the update was all about.
According to this new blurb, Boruto is going to be possessed by his mysterious seal next week. Young Uzumaki will bring Momoshiki back to life through the Seal, and fans already know it won’t end well for anyone.
“Boruto’s consciousness has been taken over by Momoshiki, and Kawaii comes up with a secret plan to save him,” the synopsis read. “The final phase of the battle with Isshiki begins!”
As you can see, Boruto is set to take a page from Sasuke in this upcoming episode. In the same way that the Uchiha could harness the power of Orochimaru with his Mark of Curse, Boruto will do the same with Momoshiki. The biggest difference here is that Boruto doesn’t want any part in his possession. Looks like the ninja will be pulled in two ways when his Otsutsuki comes out to play, and this will create a tense situation for the audience to eat.
Of course, the Naruto fandom is already living big, and it’s not hard to see why. Boruto’s most recent episode broke expectations with its animation and pace with help from Naruto himself. The Hokage unleashed a new power in their one-on-one fight with Isshiki, and the showdown was epic to say the least. In fact, the fandom is praising Boruto for stepping up his overall animation during this ominous arc, and many are eager to see how the hero emerges from his Baryon battle with Isshiki this month.
