2020 is turning out to be a good year for the manga fans. First, the announcement of Bleach’s 20th anniversary brought hopes that the highly anticipated ‘thousand year blood war’ will finally be visualised and now with the release of Chapter 42 in the serialised manga “Boruto: Naruto Next Generation”, it can be speculated that our favourite Naruto might be coming back.
To those who don’t know Naruto is at the moment fighting death in a foreign dimension after being kidnapped. To save him they need to go through Boro who is guarding the structure that seals away Naruto.
Sarada, another major character of the Manga in chapter 42 finally deduced a way to defeat Boro. She used her three-tomoe Sharingan to determine Boro’s weak spot in his body and realised it can be shifted from one place to another.
She understood that the only way to defeat Boro is by using fast ninjutsu. And with this revelation comes the most exciting part of the manga, she uses Chidori.
The chapter ended before unveiling whether it worked or not.
This fight to save Naruto has been acclaimed by fans and critics worldwide. This fight has brought out the best in all the members of the new team 7. Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki have progressed in every aspect, in terms of skill as well as mentally. They are slowly but steadily inching towards their goal.
Everyone’s trajectory has been great except there is one thing that fans are anticipating out of Mitsuki who was revealed to be Orochimaru’s son. This shook the fans and sent them into elation because even after being one of the primary villain, he is one of the most popular entities in this universe.
Being Orochimaru’s son long-time fans are expecting him to come out with his strongest move, transforming into Sage Mode.
The manga comes out on a monthly basis, so the next issue will come out on 20th February.
