Boruto Uzumaki has been through a lot this month, and it looks like his troubles are just beginning. For those who have been paying attention, Naruto’s son has taken part in two life-changing fights, against villains that even outshine Sasuke. You can see why Boruto struggles to support the weight of whatever is falling around him, and the anime writer promises things will get worse before they get better.
This disturbing update was shared by Honda Masaya, the screenwriter of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. The author took to Twitter to share a note with his fans
« I’m working on the script for the next episode 220 of Boruto. Boruto is struck by the fear of being overrun by the Momoshiki, and Naruto is forced to make a crucial decision. They don’t have much time left. Don’t miss it“, He wrote.
As you can see, Boruto is still digesting everything that happened when Isshiki came to the Hidden Leaf. The anime has just spent the last month breaking down the battle, and the Otsutsuki has been very difficult to defeat. Not only did Naruto lose Kurama while trying to defeat the man, but Boruto’s Curse Mark gave Momoshiki the chance to get revenge on Sasuke. The Uchiha no longer has his Rinnegan, and Boruto is tormented that his seal can be unleashed at any time.
Masaya is ready to explore these complex feelings in future episodes of Boruto, but his heroes have more to do than mull over. New synopses have confirmed that another Chunin Exam will be held, so the public can expect the ordeal to take place once more. And before long, the series will be ready to adapt the current arc of the manga featuring Code and Delta.
