WARNING: Boruto Manga SPOILERS Follow!
In Boruto: Naruto Next Generations manga Chapter 68, Boruto sits down for a debriefing with Amado, the Kara organization’s former chief scientist, as well as Hidden Leaf scientist Katasuke Tono. Boruto explains how he was resurrected from death by Momoshiki sacrificing the final 18% of his own resurrection “download” to repair Boruto’s mortal wounds. The end result of this choice turns out to be a good/bad news situation: Because Momoshiki can never fully download himself into Boruto, he can never fully possess the boy’s body as his vessel; however, since Momoshiki is still in a half-life state inside Boruto, he can still regain his consciousness at times.
Katasuke Tono points out that the Otsutsuki suppression drug Amado gave Boruto could be used to control Momoshiki indefinitely – but it’s an offer Boruto refuses. Per his own Testament, Boruto claims that “I don’t need it anymore… I feel like something has changed from before.” Boruto goes on to say that “I feel like I can channel his power better now.”
The evolution of Boruto’s power is a key part of this series – a mystery that’s been laid out from the very first forward opening sequence of the teenage Boruto battling Kawaki. The power sets the two boys displayed in this scene were clearly different from traditional shinobi jutsu, with the tribal marks on their bodies (now known to be marks of Karma) physically indicating the new style.
With this initial Arc Code, Boruto and Kawaki have now seen their respective Karma powers evolve beyond the Otsutsuki villains who once controlled their destinies: both boys now have access to a whole story and store of alien powers to discover and explore. develop. What’s interesting is that, like his father before him, Boruto’s power will come with a “dark passenger” while his friend/rival Kawaki’s power won’t have that chain around him. How this affects each boy’s use of this power is where this story could get very interesting…
