Chapter 55 of Boruto: Naruto the next generations led readers to one of the most disturbing and painful deaths in the entire work, comparable to the most dramatic of Naruto Shippuden. But will there be more goodbyes with Masashi Kishimoto's return to management?

If you are on par with the manga, you will know that a key character died in Boruto 55. However, this event was contrary to all expectations. In fact, it wasn't Naruto who left us, only Kurama. The nine-tailed fox died after devastating effects of baryon mode, "last" technique with which the seventh Hokage apparently managed to eliminate Isshiki Otsutuski.

This dramatic twist from Kishimoto could only be the first of many greetings. In fact, if we analyze Naruto Shippuden, we can see that these painful events are not a one-off but a constant in the series. And then fans on social media wondered who could quit work next.

Contrary to the original predictions, given recent events, it is very likely that Naruto and Sasuke, the two most powerful characters in the series, will stay alive. The Hokage has just lost Kurama while Sasuke's Rinnegan was taken away. But the last word has not yet been said; weakened since then, the duo of the leaf could fall victim to the Revenge of the Otsutsuki and the closest antagonist to Boruto.
