Boruto Chapter 50 : Potential Value

The Boruto manga has reached a point where our main characters are at an impasse. Ishikki Otsutsuki proves to be a formidable foe and nothing is going to stop him from accomplishing his goal.

Boruto teleports them all to another dimension. He uses his intellect and wit to achieve this magnificent feat. Naruto is very impressed that he might be a splitting image of himself.

Ishiki Otsutsukki is enraged and charges towards Boruto. In a flash he subdues him. This chapter provided facts regarding Boruto’s transformation. In the fight between Boro and Boruto, the transformation was a sign of 70-80% of the manifestation of Otsutki genes inside Boruto. Ishikki notices this and wants to see the full extent of his latent abilities.

Sasuke uses his Rinnegan abilities and switches places with Boruto. He uses Chidori on Ishikki but he evades and sends him flying. Fearing for his son’s life, Naruto asks Boruto to leave but Ishikki’s thirst for destruction has just begun.

Ishikki’s powers are even higher than we anticipated. He whisks Boruto away in the blink of an eye and no one can do anything about it. The author has subtly shown the power differences between these characters. Naruto and Sasuke have faced a lot of foes but this is one that they have not looked into.

Kawaki dreams about his creation. He was bestowed with the Karma seal as a symbol of his oppression. Kawaki went through a tough childhood and despised himself and his abilities for such a long time,

He wakes up from his sleep and sees Amado sitting next to him. Amado briefs him about his whereabouts and the events that took place while he was unconscious. The Leaf Village is not able to locate Boruto’s Chakra as well as Naruto’s and Sasuke’s.

Shikamaru explains to Kawaki that his karma has disappeared and he is a free bird. Kawaki knows the situation he is in and the unparalleled strength of Ishikki. Until Ishiki’s demise, Kawaki can never be a free spirit. They plan to wait out a few days so that Ishiki’s life force can gradually decrease. In doing so he will get weak and die and there will be no way he can implant a new Karma seal on Kawaki.

Naruto and Sasuke battle it out with Ishikki. Ishikki in this form skillfully dodges all their advances. Sasuke while fighting with his katana, is stopped instantly from attacking. His Katana has been shrunk to a miniature size and he is smacked on the face with a stick.

He is down for the count and exhausted. Ishikki is a bigger foe than we knew. He sets his eyes on killing Sasuke. It is very hard to believe that Sasuke could be taken down with something as meager as a smack, but of course Its Boruto’s show. Even Naruto in his nine tails form is not a match for Ishikki. Ishhikki pulls out all the stops and takes down the most powerful Shinobi in the world. It is a testament to his true strength.

Shikamaru and the other discuss Boruto’s new ability. Amado suggests that Boruto has realized something about Ishikki that none of the others can notice. It is a spectacle seeing him grow up from that snotty-nosed brat into an intellectual shinobi.

Boruto dives in front of Ishikki as he is about to execute Sasuke. He takes Sasuke to a safe place and evades Ishikki. He figures that something odd is going on with Ishikki. It was quite valiant of him to sacrifice his life like that to save his teacher. Boruto has received the respect of the entire Naruto fandom with that single action.

Amado tells them that, Boruto might as well be the ‘Key’ to winning this fight. He might be the one to stop Ishikki.

I believe that according to the law of the Otsutsuki clan, killing is prohibited between the members. The transfer of power is the only way to end someone’s life and for that to happen they need consent. Momoshiki was the one who consumed one of his disciples. At the beginning of Boruto, if you remember Toneri, the clan member who lived on the moon wasn’t killed by Momishiki, he was just petrified, turned into stone. According to these laws killing within the clan is humanely impossible for Ishikki Otsutsuki and hence Boruto cannot be killed. He might be the only one who can defeat Ishikki Otsutsuki.

Tell me what your views are on my theory. Until Next time. See ya!
