Boruto Manga chapter 10 dark stuff

Boruto Manga Chapter 10 secret of Boruto’s curse mark & Naruto’s death

So when i gave my review on the first chapter of Boruto Manga i did said that, i won’t give any review on the Boruto chapters that are going to come in future because they are wrapping up the Boruto movie arc. I also said i will start giving review once again when the arc finishes. Boruto manga chapter 10 was final chapter of the Boruto movie arc, and i am glad that i read it.

Because this  chapter, even though it dealt with the aftermath of the fight between Momoshiki and four kages, just like it was shown in the movie. The author and the illustrator working on this chapter made this chapter a completely unique and important chapter that links to the very first chapter of the Manga.

Also the art has greatly improved, throughout this period of 10 chapters and also the story has leveled up. So those who were hesitating whether they should read the manga or not, they should start with the first few pages of the first chapter and they should directly skip to Boruto manga chapter 10.

Update : In the first episode of Boruto anime it was confirmed that Boruto’s eye is not Byakugan its a special power like Tenseigan. If you want you can read whole review – Boruto Anime Episode 1 Review.

Boruto Manga chapter 10 review – Darker stuff begins

Before getting to the actual review of the chapter 10, allow me to do a little recap of the first few pages of Boruto’s first chapter, featuring Boruto vs Kawaki. Because as i said earlier, chapter 01 is linked to chapter 10. So if you take a look at the first few pages of the first chapter featuring Boruto vs Kawaki, you see a certain curse mark on Boruto’s hand that spread to his one side of the face.

What’s more even Kawaki has the same power of curse mark that Boruto has, which gave us an interpretation that this power of curse mark that Boruto and Kawaki has, is some sort of different power which is more than enough to surpass a shinobi like Naruto Uzumaki. This in fact makes Naruto’s death & Kawaki killing Naruto a possible thing and today’s Boruto Manga chapter 10 provided more proof on this issue.

At the start of the chapter you will notice Boruto feeling some kind of omnious presence similar to that of Momoshiki, and he goes to the spot where Momoshiki was destroyed and there he finds Momoshiki’s spirit, but at the same time he notices that, Naruto can’t sense the spirit of Momoshiki. So Momoshiki warns him that –

“You defeated me who is a god so you will no longer be a normal human being, you will become a being higher than normal human and that blue eyes of yours will take everything away from you that’s your fate!”

After that small exchange of words, the spirit disappears and Boruto notices the cube like curse mark on his plam, that will further grow and become the curse mark that you see in above image from chapter 01.

I think what Momoshiki said to Boruto gives us a pretty good reasoning, why Naruto’s death is possible scenario in Boruto Manga and so this is a theory of mine based on all the events happened in Chapter 01 and 10.

  • Boruto sensed Momoshiki’s spirit and was able to see and talk with him after his death because of his blood of byakugan, but Naruto didn’t even sensed the spirit because he have no blood of byakugan, alone is enough proof that the power which Boruto got after defeating god (with Naruto’s rasengan), is something which sets him apart and will make him stronger than his father.
  • Its also possible that he awakened his dormant power because of the Byakugan blood he possess.
  • Sasuke was able to see Momoshiki & Boruto talking with his Rinnegan, which is more than enough to convince him that something bad is going to happen, and that’s why he trains Boruto seriously & harder than ever and makes him stronger as we saw Boruto in one chapter.
  • Considering Kawaki has the same curse mark as Boruto confirms that he is stronger than Naruto and has some sort of relation with Otsutsuki clan and he must have killed him for revenge.

From the first few pages of the first chapter and the things that happened in Boruto Manga chapter 10 is more than enough to convince that something bad is going to happen and Naruto & Sasuke will die or they will fake their death.

The argument

Most people found it quite ridiculous that Boruto receiving curse mark after he defeated a god like Momoshiki with borrowed rasengan. But in reality its not ridiculous at all because Boruto has the potential to surpass his father and he handling that full-powered rasengan was the biggest proof. Most probably they showed Boruto receiving curse mark and new power as a price of defeating Momoshiki because, they wanted to show that Momoshiki realized Boruto’s potential and wanted to give him pain and despair as a revenge.  And as i said, Its also possible that he awakened his dormant power because of the Byakugan blood he possess.

Update : In the first episode of Boruto anime it was confirmed that Boruto’s eye is not Byakugan its a special power like Tenseigan. If you want you can read whole review – Boruto Anime Episode 1 Review.

People even said that there wasn’t any need for Boruto to go to other dimension to fight them, in fact Sasuke wasn’t going to let him fight he brought Boruto for two reasons :-

  • To show him what kind of Ninja his father is.
  • He knew if some thing happened then somewhere along the way he would need the help of Boruto’s disappearing Rasengan.

So it was all set up that way!

Wrapping up

After reading Boruto manga chapter 10 i am excited to see what kind of development will happen in future chapters. As of now i can say that the real story has finally started and from the first looks of it, its going to be epic.

Overall chapter rating – 4.5/5
