What They Say
The battle between Naruto and Delta heats up as Boruto watches on from the sidelines. But when Delta starts using some despicable tactics, the kids may be forced to join the fight. Naruto is strong, but can he fend off such a fearsome foe while protecting others?!
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers):
Naruto takes on Kara’s Delta in a battle that even Naruto struggled to keep the upper hand. Kawaki stepped in, risking his right hand, to protect Naruto and Himawari. Will Delta ultimately lost, Naruto and the kids think Delta self-destructed when she actually survived. Delta reports to Jigen that Boruto also has a Karma.
Kawaki gets a prosthetic hand with help from Naruto. Kawaki, not wanting to be a burden to the Uzumaki family, asks to be trained in ninjutsu. Kawaki is fitting into the leaf village and Uzumaki family when he unexpectedly is confronted by Kurama. Kurama reveals to Kawaki what Naruto’s life was really like. Kawaki looks up to Naruto and begins to excel in ninjutsu.
Meanwhile, Sasuke is following up on a lead and discovers a different ten tailed biju, and Jigen is siphoning chakra from it.
There was definitely more action than dialogue in the first half of the volume. The best part of this volume was definitely the advancement of Kawaki’s character development, and Sasuke’s new information he acquired. It was exciting and fun, just like how this manga should be.
