Warning! The following in The Truth News contains spoilers for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. We recommend that you catch up until Episode 217, “Decisions,” now airing on Crunchyroll.
For some time, fans of the anime have been waiting to see Naruto Uzumaki vs Isshiki Otsutsuki. Manga fans already knew what would happen, but even they couldn’t predict how epic this fight would turn out.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at whether it is indeed the best fight in the shonen series taking into account the buzz on the internet. The official YouTube of Crunchyroll Collection shared the clip from episode 217, and as of this writing, it surpasses the 211K views during its first 2 hours.
Mira la batalla de Naruto vs Isshiki
The Hokage has tapped all of Kurama’s chakra to enter the Modo Baryon and stop the alien Ōtsutsuki. Naruto knows that if he doesn’t, Isshiki will travel to Konoha, destroy him and his son. He also knows that Isshiki will use Kawaki as his vessel to drain the planet of all chakras.
As such, the strongest form of Naruto It will allow him to decrease Isshiki’s life essence as the host body (Monk Jigen’s) is deteriorating, so all Naruto has to do is defeat him before Kurama expires.
Watch out! While it seems like a defensive strategy, Naruto goes completely offensive. The Seventh Hokage keeps crouching down and dodging all of Isshiki’s projectiles from dark spears to giant alien cubes. He even catches them with his Kurama tail cape, pulling them back.
Naruto also has a lot of arrogance, he waves Isshiki with one hand while punching him, defends himself from side to side and avoids all blows. It’s almost too easy, to give us the true martial artist in Naruto, but what share Kurama’s personality.
He then raises it up a bit, going from taijutsu to ninjutsu once again flying through the air into a gravitating Isshiki before propelling a giant Rasengan to crush the alien. Naruto is calm and collected, with his voice reverberating due to this mode, making him feel like a true deity (somewhat similar to Goku’s Ultra Instinct).
The fact that he’s moving so fast, similar to his father Minato Namikaze, is also a nice touch, so much so that neither Sasuke’s Sharingan nor Isshiki’s Byakugan can track down the Konoha leader. It’s like he’s teleporting, which beats anything we’ve seen of him in the Naruto series and the movies.
The fluid animation, the action-packed dynamic scoring, and the overall aesthetic of this fight in Boruto exceeds fan expectations. They really create an energy clash from the Titans as they drop bombs at each other.
We’ve never seen Naruto unleashed like this, even with Sasuke scared, as he could never deal with such raw power. It also goes beyond the Hokages, so Kurama admits that he is wearing them down faster than expected.
