 Summary

Boruto manga chapter 51

Boruto manga chapter 51 talked a lot about what sacrifice meant to certain characters. I also think it's time for someone important to die.


In the previous chapter of the manga, we learned that Isshiki cannot kill Boruto. Of course, fans were looking forward to seeing Boruto act as a human shield to continue protecting Sasuke in this month's chapter. However, what happened in the end was quite unexpected and showed how much Boruto had grown as a character.


Remember how Sasuke had a quick conversation with our young hero about whether or not he was ready to die to protect the village? "Sacrifice" showed that Boruto was truly ready to put his life on the line as a ninja from the Hidden Leaf Village. I liked how he threatened to kill himself with a kunai if Isshiki didn't stay put.


It was clear that such a threat wouldn't work on Isshiki, but it was still great to see Boruto show what kind of young ninja he's become. He is prepared to make tough decisions to ensure that everyone else stays safe.


I was a little surprised that Momoshiki didn't choose to take over Boruto's body. Isshiki hurting Boruto (breaking the kid's arm) but not killing him seemed like the perfect opportunity for Momoshiki to reappear and square off with Isshiki. I think we might see such an event in the next chapter. Momoshiki wouldn't let Isshiki feed him the Ten-Tails, right?


'Sacrifice' offered us a lot of lore related to the Otsutsuki clan and their mission to destroy planets by harvesting the Divine Chakra fruit. While Kaguya didn't get much development in the Naruto manga, it's nice to see her character get a few more layers in Boruto's story.


According to Amado, the Ten-Tailed Beast was a seedling. It had to be fed to Otsutsuki to grow into a chakra tree and grow a chakra fruit. The members of the Otsutsuki clan traveled in pairs as one of them (the shortest individual in the pair) was sacrificed to feed the Ten-Tailed Beast. Kaguya was supposed to be such a victim, but she betrayed Isshiki.


Now, Amado stated that the sacrificed Otsutsuki did not necessarily die. They could be resurrected through the Karma brand.


That's why I'm confused as to why Kaguya betrayed Isshiki when she had the chance to go through the rebirth process. Some fans believe she didn't want to be sacrificed because she fell in love with a human. Some say she wanted to be the one to eat the chakra fruit and gain immense power. Some theories speculate that it could be a combination of both. Here's hoping we get an answer soon.


Also, when Amado gives the good ones all this information, do you believe him? According to Kawaki, Amado is always calculating his next move.


The statement Amado made about Kawaki possibly being missing and having the Karma mark caught my attention. Do you think Kawaki (in an emotionally confused way) liked to feel special or wanted to be Ishiki's vessel?




The biggest moment in this chapter involved the sacrifice Naruto decided to make. It turns out that Kurama could give Naruto a new power level (or mode) to help defeat Ishiki. However, said mode would require Naruto to die as the increase in power came with a serious cost.


Yes, I know there are some fans who think Naruto getting a whole new mode full of chakra makes no sense at this point. There was never an instance where Kurama even hinted at the possibility of such a form during Naruto's story. But okay. I think certain properties need to find new ways to release the next batch of collectibles for the fandom. I can't wait to see what Naruto (in his latest mode) looks like as an action figure.
