Boruto Chapter 21 – How You Use It

Boruto Manga Chapter 21 Summary

The group discusses how to deal with Ao. Konohamaru wants to force Ao to use his arm absorbing jutsu with ninjutsu to create a blind spot from which to attack him. Katasuke points out the brief moment it takes for an absorption sphere to form on the arm, which Konohamaru wants Borutoto to use to absorb Ao's own jutsu bullets while he goes for the final strike. Boruto wants to use the chakra katana provided by Katasuke, but collapses from consuming the chakra. Boruto will have to activate the katana at the last possible moment. Katasuke makes adjustments to Boruto's arm absorbing jutsu. Their strategy is decided. While on the road, Ao is approached by Kashin Koji, who questions Ao's commitment due to the escape of the others. Ao assures him that just like the scientific ninja tools that keep him alive, he is also a tool of Kara. Kashin Koji is happy to hear this and warns Ao of the Konoha shinobi's intention to defeat him, including that he has developed a strategy. He is more interested in the possibility of them getting the ship and emphasizes that this is his mission. As Ao approaches the ruins where the Konoha-nin have regrouped, he attacks the hidden Mitsuki with his ninja science tools. Mitsuki attacks Ao with Lightning Release and Konohamaru and Sarada attack with Fire Release. Ao notices that they don't care about consuming chakra as he absorbs their attacks and concludes that they are a distraction for Boruto's attack. Boruto strikes with a chakra katana from above, but Ao blocks it with his own chakra blade, knocking Boruto back, bringing up Boruto's chakra katana and using it to stab. Ao tells Boruto that he missed his attack, but Boruto denies it and grabs Ao's arm so he can't let go of the chakra katana. Mitsuki reaches out and further wraps Ao's arm. Stabbed, Boruto Ao disappears, he is a shadow clone, and Ao feels his power drain from the katana's chakra. Ao uses the tools in his other arm to force Mitsuki to release his grip. The real Boruto attacks and uses his own arm absorbing jutsu to counter Ao, leaving him free to land the Rasengan. Boruto uses Ao's own words about how tools are used against him.
