The death of the main characters in every work, not just in Boruto: Naruto the next generationsis an extremely rare occurrence that is often masked by wrong intentions. However, in the case of the Naruto sequel, there is one detail that could really lead the writers to make such an important decision.
With the last few chapters, the work really got close to the possibility that the two strongest ninja of Konoha, Sasuke and Naruto, may actually die fighting Isshiki. Very often, the genre's implications are greeted with laughter by the dedicated community, as a writer is unlikely to give up his protagonist's popularity in order to twist the story. In the case of the Boruto manga, however, there is a not inconsiderable element, namely poor sales, which have now been reduced to historic lows.
The comic has actually been over for a few months Ukyo Kodachi is Mikio Ikemoto is inexorably in a long period of decline in sales with a new high with the final Tankobon that could lead the duo to upset the narrative with the Departure from Naruto and Sasuke. And precisely because of this, the chapter 51 cliffhanger could really open a big death flag on the head of the Hokage and just put the story on the character of Boruto and the new Team 7 in the spotlight.
All in all, of course, growing sales would be an extremely risky endeavor, but there is no denying that such a decision can really open the doors to new sensational implications.
