Well, I’m here to tell you the wait is nearly over, Boruto chapter 65 is almost here! And with the chapter nearing, it’s time for our breakdown of everything you need to know for chapter 65 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations! From spoilers to release dates and more, we’ve got it all right here on Anime Senpai!
Chapter 64 Recap
Before we jump into spoilers for chapter 65 let’s do a quick recap of what went down in the most recent chapter of the series.
Chapter 64, titled, ‘Control’ kicks off with Boruto unlocking a new form, one that allows him to use the experience and fighting memory of Momoshiki thus allowing him to use his karma to the max. What’s surprising is in this new form Boruto is able to hold his conscience and not allow Momoshiki to take over his body.
After trading, a couple blows with Boruto and teleporting a distance Code asks Eida why he is able to maintain himself. To which she replies that it could be due to the meds that she saw Amado give to him.
Now jumping over to Naruto we see him alongside the sensory division trying to pinpoint Boruto’s location as Naruto has some clones meditate and collect natural energy, preparing to fight. It’s then that Shikamaru Nara shows up and informs Naruto that since the other combatants are busy or unreachable, he will be joining Naruto in this fight. After lots of back and forth, Naruto agrees to this. Hinata also asks to tag along, but Naruto asks her to stay and take care of Himawari, in case something happens to him.
Going back to Boruto we see him and Kawaki discussing that Code’s claw marks strangely cannot be absorbed. But before their conversation goes further Kawaki asks how Boruto is able to maintain this new form. To which he replies that he has no idea, but it could possibly connect with Amado’s meds. Worried for him Kawaki tells Boruto not to rely too much on this form since the effects could be felt later.
Before they are able to prepare for Code’s next waves of attacks, Code teleports in and grabs Kawaki, attempting to take him and teleport away. Luckily Kawaki prepared for this and had a shadow clone in hiding who jumps out and frees the original. Agreeing to settle this right here, right now Boruto and Code prepare to charge at each other one more time.
But before we get to see this fight go down the manga jumps to Naruto and Shikamaru. Naruto, now in sage mode exclaims that he has pinpointed Boruto and another unknown chakra, presumed to be Code. After informing the others Shikamaru and Naruto rush off to save the kids. As they run over Shikamaru asks Naruto how long he can sustain sage mode. Naruto simply responds that it’s much longer from when they were kids, thanking the wisdom that comes with age for this.
The chapter ends on one final fight sequence, we see between the powerful Code and the newly powered-up Boruto. And after holding his own, it seems that Boruto may actually win this fight. Of course, the last panel of the chapter changes this as we see Boruto have some sort of difficulty while clutching his chest. Before knocking down to the floor and letting go of his new form.
Chapter 65 Spoilers
Now that we are all caught up, let’s dive right into chapter 65’s spoilers. Warning, however, some raws for the upcoming chapter are already out so there are confirmed spoilers below, you have been warned.
Chapter 65, titled, ‘ The Power of Karma,’ starts off with Boruto still curled up on the floor clutching his chest. But things quickly get weirder from there, Momoshiki appears in a foggy distance sitting on a tree branch. Boruto comments that this feeling of being frozen in time reminds him of when he first got his karma.
Momoshiki then begins to talk and suggests that now would be a good time to kill off Code, Momoshiki then orders Boruto to switch places with him and allow him to take over the body. With Momoshiki now in control Boruto, or rather Borushiki is much stronger, to the point that Code can easily point it out.
After narrowly dodging Borushiki’s attacks with his claw marks Code is able to take Kawaki as a hostage. Code informs Borushiki that he and Kawaki have some business and the two begin to disappear into a claw mark, against Kawak’s will. However, before they fully make it out Borushiki shoots out a new form of Rasengan, literally. This new Jutsu is called Rasendan and is a Rasengan in bullet form. Using this Jutsu Borushiki frees Kawaki, also noticing that Code couldn’t absorb this Jutsu.
Telling Kawaki to stay put Borushiki begins to break Kawaki’s arm when Shikamru’s shadow strangle Jutsu stops him. As Borushiki easily absorbs this Jutsu Code manages to grab Shikamaru and use him as a hostage. After much fighting Code threatens to kill Shikamaru is Naruto makes a move towards him. Borushiki who is now annoyed shoots off a Rasengan at Naruto yelling he will kill him.
The surprise of this chapter occurs when Kawaki jumps in the way of the Rasengan and absorbs it. Surprising everyone on the battlefield Kawaki activates a new form of Karma, which should be impossible since Kawaki lost his karma. The chapter ends as we get to see a look at Kawaki’s new form, he has Isshiki’s horn as well as the finger ring design. The final surprise comes in the final panel of the chapter, which shows Kawaki with a new triangle-shaped dojutsu in his left eye.
