Review Vol.14 Boruto – Naruto Next Generations – Manga

Faced with Isshiki who is absolutely formidable, Naruto is forced to experiment with a new mode which sees his chakra and that of Kurama merge in order to multiply their power… the problem being that he consumes his own life by realizing this! However he is ready to sacrifice himself to prevent his enemy from seizing Kawaki’s body!

A volume 14 full of action…but which is hollow as rarely! The action is certainly more intense than in Naruto but, not that it is particularly badly staged, it is especially that nothing emerges from it! It lacks both visual and emotional impact…and here it’s not only at the level of the action that we don’t feel anything.

So we have a Naruto who faces the great enemy of the moment, namely an extraterrestrial ninja (I still can’t digest that) with excessive power…but the techniques are so flat that it’s hard to understand. realize it! As much in the last arc of Naruto we had disproportionate techniques, but there emerged a real danger, we felt the threat and the omnipotence of the latter…here most of the time they swing kunais… which go fast… It’s really very impressive!
So besides the sadness of the clashes we are forced once again to note that Boruto is the main character only in name, he does extras and lets the elders solve his problems; fan service obliges, readers want to see Naruto and Sasuke in action!
Sasuke who has gone from being an overpowered and charismatic monster to an old goth who is content most of the time…to throw kunais! Really very impressive! In short…

Fortunately Kawaki regains control (almost literally) in the last part of the confrontation… for a resolution that is not far from pathetic! Besides, should it be explained to the authors that in the term “multi cloning” there is “multi”, therefore if he only manages to make a single clone it is cloning and not “multi” cloning … In short…

And then there is the strong and touching moment of the volume, the disappearance of a key and essential character of the Naruto saga, a moment… which is not at all strong and touching! It’s so badly staged, the exchanges are so tasteless that absolutely no emotion emerges from this disappearance, this important death which should have been an incredible moment. But hey, no big deal, it happens, a key character dies and the others barely mention him, in total “balec” mode! In short…

Finally Isshiki, who is dead, but whose spirit still finds the time to say hello to his favorite disciple, will bequeath his will to the latter… who comes out of nowhere (unless he appeared before , but it didn’t impress me at all). All this to say that while the threat is finally eradicated, it survives through a disciple who comes out of nowhere, who was a failed receptacle but who of course will prove to be more powerful than his masters… In short…

It’s very simple in this volume everything annoyed me with incredible force! It’s so badly written, so badly directed! If it hadn’t been the sequel to Naruto, the pre-publication of this title would have been interrupted a long time ago!
