Boruto: fans react to saddest episode in Naruto history

Days after Naruto unveiled his most powerful form, fans today experience the saddest episode of the saga of all time.

Warning: this article contains many spoilers regarding episode 218 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.

A tragic episode

Confronted with their most formidable enemy, Naruto and Sasuke are in great difficulty. To the extent that the Seventh Hokage had to resort to a whole new technique, Baryon mode. If this terribly powerful new transformation had the merit of allowing Boruto’s father to beat Isshiki Ôtsutsuki, it has a terrible cost: Kurama’s death, the Nine-Tailed Demon-Fox that Naruto has housed since the day he was born. At the end of the last episode, Naruto bids farewell to Kurama, this Fox demon whose existence forced him to live as an outcast during his childhood, and who ended up becoming his friend.

While many iconic figures have died tragically in Naruto (Jiraya, Itachi, Neji, Konan, Nagato, Minato, Hiruzen, etc), Kurama’s death is undoubtedly the most significant. Especially since as some Internet users have pointed out, the animated version sublimated the death of the Demon Fox compared to the manga version, released in April 2021.

Moreover, beyond the tragic aspect of Kurama’s death, this event will undoubtedly have very serious consequences for the rest of the manga. Deprived of the Demon-Fox’s abilities, Naruto lost a lot of power. And manga always directs us a little more towards the death of the Ninja most famous of all time. In the meantime, Internet users have shared their reactions after the last episode of Boruto.
