Boruto Manga Chapter 1 Review – Did Naruto Really Die?

Boruto Manga Chapter 1 – So Naruto Manga’s sequel Boruto Manga based on the next generation made its debut yesterday, with some pretty shocking revelation that we would not ever expect and that’s death of Naruto! Yes you heard that right. Although the spoilers came around 2-3 days ago but these spoilers were not confirmed and so i decided not to write anything about it. But i didn’t expected those spoilers to be true…

The chapter starts with a fight between Boruto (the main character) and Kawaki (the antagonist). These two guys were fighting on the Hokage monument and the shape was pretty much distorted and the entire Konohagakure was broken to shreds. The fight takes place in the future timeline as Boruto was looking like an adult person. Boruto uses sword which is similar to Saskuke’s sword, he must have got it from Sasuke. Although Chapter did not say anything about Sasuke…

  • Boruto : I Didn’t expect you to be so strong!
  • Kawaki : I going to send you to the same place where Nanadaime Hokage (Seventh Hokage : Naruto) went.
  • Boruto : Did things really have to trun like this?
  • Kawaki :¬†Yes, The age of Shinobi is over
  • Boruto : Even so, I am a Ninja! (Activates Byakugan in right eye!)

This about conversation between Kawaki and Boruto is actually the first and second page page of the chapter, which was pretty shocking because of this line : “I going to send you to the same place where Nanadaime Hokage (Seventh Hokage : Naruto) went.” First of all i will state my opinion on this above conversation, Naruto is the character which i think is pretty important character to the entire Naruto franchise, The sequel is based on next generation, but it doesn’t change the fact that he is the important character.

Also Naruto is not a character that could anyone could kill so easily, in fact he is pretty strong and has a power of Rikudo sennin, to kill Naruto Kawaki should also possess the power of Rikudo or any power on the same level. Moreover Naruto is pretty smart and considerably wise for his happy go lucky attitude, he may have faked his death for investigating Kawaki. Because Kawaki¬†is more like a guy who was nice guy at the start and then later he turned into antagonist (Just like Sasuke). So i think Naruto must have faked his death to investigate the reason behind kawaki’s action.

Boruto also had a scar on his right eye just like kakashi and that eye is Byakugan, Although it still not known from where he got the Byakugan since he didn’t have from the beginning, only Himawari was the one who activated Byakugan. So people are speculating that he must have got it implanted from Hinata or Himawari, the same way Kakashi got his Sharingan from Obito, which may also mean that one of them must have died. Although i really don’t want that!

Some people are also speculating that Hinata and Naruto must have died together while protecting Boruto and Himawari, in which Boruto’s right eye must have gotten hurt and then he must have decided to implant Hinata’s Byakugan for the replacement of his right eye, Or Hinata must have urged Boruto to use her Byakugan in place of his right eye.

The first three pages of the 60 page chapter are only important the rest of the story is from “Boruto : Naruto The Movie” and it seems that we will get two more chapters based on the movie. Looks like Dragon ball super had big impact on Boruto Manga.

Disappointing art

This Manga is not drawn by Kishimoto, but was drawn by his assistant that’s why the character designs are not that good, and the story is written by the one who wrote Naruto Novels, Kishimoto is only acting as a supervisor.

Certainly its hard to copy someone’s art style and that’s why it was best choice to use original style but, seriously the character designs are bad especially character designs of Naruto, Hinata, Sasuke and Sakura. The first two pages of the chapter which are colored pages, looks like it was drawn by Kishimoto because the coloring work and character designs are good compared to the rest of the pages in the chapter.

Well anyways, the first three pages were the only reason behind the excitement since they depicts Naruto’s death and so i am pretty excited to see how the story progress further after the flashback of Boruto : Naruto The Movie is over.

The Opinion

The chapter really hyped me up from the first three starting pages but to see what happens from page four i read the entire chapter and well i was kinda disappointed because of the flashback. As for Naruto, Hinata or Himawari’s death, well i really don’t want these three characters to die, The chances of Himawari’s death are pretty less and its 65% possible that Naruto and Hinata died but still i don’t think they will die or rather i don’t want them to die because even though they are not the main focus of the Manga or the entire story but i want to see Naruto’s role and growth as Hokage and Hinata’s role as parent.

I think people are more excited to see adult Hinata and Naruto and the rest of the characters compared to the new generation, Also i don’t think that author will kill Hinata and Naruto, because despite not being the focus of the entire story it doesn’t change the fact that these two characters are important characters. Kawaki’s mission is to end the era of shinobi and Boruto will stop him that’s for sure but i think that Sasuke and Naruto will play a huge role in helping Boruto to stop Kawaki.

Wrapping up

Anyways, i hope that author will wrap up the flashback of Boruto : Naruto The Movie and soon tell us what really happened to Naruto. Because of which i have decided that i won’t be reviewing further chapters and will review chapters directly after flashbacks of Boruto : Naruto The Movie
