Boruto manga is well on its way to becoming a very good manga. The manga is indefinitely better than the anime. You might say that I’m unfair on the show. But, the only great arc that the anime had was the Momoshiki one. The lack of manga adaptation is a growing concern. It has caused a lot of stir among the fans. Well, this is a topic for another debate. So, let’s shift back to the original topic. Before we begin with the post, let me warn you that this post has spoilers for Boruto. If you don’t like reading spoilers, then I suggest that you turn back now. With that out of the way, let’s begin the post.
The previous chapter of Boruto was an enthralling one. It was filled with high-quality content, and I must laud the writing of Kodachi. The writing is absolutely top-notch, and it keeps the reader hooked. The high quality of the manga is the reason why the fans are unhappy. Anyway, in the last chapter, we saw Boruto and Kawaki talking about the Karma.
The Karma is a kind of a seal, which a person gets after killing an Otsutsuki. Boruto was the first known person to have the seal along with Kawaki (pilot episode). The Karma is like a double-edged sword, which gives the user a lot of power in exchange for the user’s life. This has not been officially confirmed that the Karma kills the user at some point. But, after listening to Jigen, it seems that Karma does kill the user.
He told Amado that he needs to keep on sharing his seal as he didn’t have much time remaining, which definitely points to some secret of the mark. In the next chapter, we will get to know more about Karma and Jigen. I think that Kawaki might reveal some more information about Jigen to Naruto or Boruto. It’s obvious that at a certain point, they are going to investigate him.
The next chapter of Boruto will come out on October 22, 2018. The scans will be available 2-3 days earlier. You can read them if you want to, but, it is advised to wait for the official release in order to help the anime and manga community.
