There are events that inevitably mark the course of a manga, events from which one cannot go back. And in Boruto: Naruto Next Generation The status quo has just been broken in an unpredictable, sensational and shocking way. After the many skirmishes of the previous chapters, there is now a clear switch between Boruto and Kawaki.
Chapter 78 of Boruto had already started laying the groundwork for the most sensational reversal in manga history when Kawaki and Boruto faced each other and the latter lost his right eye after being punched by his former partner. But it was the events of the chapter released on March 19th on MangaPlus that finally changed the cards on the table: the omnipotence of Eida He swapped the roles of Boruto and Kawaki, with the latter becoming the Seventh Hokage's son and the former a fugitive from Konoha after he betrayed them.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations 80 will be a chapter full of surprises. In fact, it's about reading a whole new manga: the relationships between Boruto and the other characters have changed radically, the same goes for those of Kawaki, with few bases like Sarada not affected by the power of Eida for some obscure reason . Boruto suddenly has to flee the village and is left alone. This will obviously lead to the events seen in the first chapter of the manga and at this point everything will come as a big surprise. Masashi Kishimoto simply made the manga unpredictable.
Boruto Chapter 80 will be released on Manga Plus on Thursday April 20th, 2023.
