There is the rumor around the internet that Naruto dies in this new manga. Naruto Uzumaki is the Seventh Hokage and one of the strongest ninjas in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. He is immensely powerful and has an almost infinite amount of chakra due to the beast inside him.
The theory originated in the First Chapter of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Boruto is fighting a mysterious villain named Kawaki. He threatens Boruto to send him to meet the Seventh. Sounds like a death threat. Some pictures were around that showed Naruto’s death. However, those were fan arts and there is no official confirmation that Naruto actually did die.
Is Naruto Going To Die In Boruto Manga?
Kawaki is a member of Kara. Kara is a mysterious organization with unknown intentions. It consists of very strong inner members and an outer network of shinobi. The Leader of Kara bought Kawaki when he was a child. Kawaki later received a seal with the power called Karma. Boruto also got it after defeating Momoshiki. He used Karma to absorb Ninjutsu in one instance. Full capabilities of Karma are still unknown.
Since such a powerful organization exists, it is likely that Naruto can die or may be presumed dead. Naruto is quite a strong and intelligent shinobi. Kawaki doesn’t seem capable enough to defeat Naruto. He is at the power level just higher than Boruto at this point. But, If Kara has members with powers like Momoshiki, they might be able to overpower the Seventh Hokage.
Naruto is bound to be in grave danger from Kara in future chapters. His death is possible but unlikely. I think the writer will avoid Naruto’s Death. It can affect the popularity of Boruto: Naruto Next Generation considerably. Naruto is very dear to many fans out there and Boruto manga will lose a lot of readers if such a thing happens.
