Boruto: The NeverEnding Prologue Chapter 52

20 November 2020 - 06:22 PM



Anyways, Summary Time: Chapter 52 Baryon mode. Guess that the transformations name. As everyone should know by now Kishimoto back in charge of writing.


So, pffff haha. is this Baryon mo-mo-mode haha! It looooks worse in color. Words are failing me.




So when we la-la-last left off Naruto had active his final sacrifice going to die mode. Wow the art on Naruto has immediate improvements. He face actually looks good clearly because Kishimoto knows what shape Naruto's face is suppose to have instead of guess or trying their own thing; the cover pages is still Ikemoto. Everyone wonders why Naruto wasn't using this for beforehand since all three of them can feel its power. Kurama explains the mode is like Nuclear Fusion...I guess they discovered nuclear energy in the last 15 years. Possibly since, Naruto doesn't know that that is but apparently Kurama does. Not sure if this was the last guy's explanation for this form or this is kishi's. Naruto and Kurama chakra are serving as "kernels" to produce a new type of energy. It is different from the Sage mode (an enhancement which takes energy from surrounding area) or Cloak mode (which is an exchange where Naruto uses Kurama's chakra while giving the beast his in order to restore Kurama's reserves). Is that this form is just consuming energy burning through both till they die. Every action shall now burn through their reserves till they die; Kurama tell him to remove unnecessary movements and superfluous thoughts in order to keep the form going as long as possible.


They fight for a good number of pages. Naruto has the upper hand, finally. He is able to to handle anything Jenga throws at him and react faster than Sasuke's Sharingan can see. Nothing impressive or iconic happens but at least it flows better then the other fights.


Back to Nail and Madoc. Turns out Nail's  prosthetic hand is actually Naruto's, Naruto is actually sending chakra into that arm in order for Nail to use it, so it going to be his 'broken cup' it will stop working to show Naruto will die soon. Yep, it starts glowing and Nail realizes Naruto chakra is weakening.


Back to the fight Naruto gets down on one knee and his cloak tails start to breakdown. Jenga realizes what going on, but his body is also now fading as well. Kurama explains more of his plan to Naruto of why they are going for sacrificial move. Apparently, by coming into contact with this Naruto-Kurama charka is giving Jenga "chakra radiation poisoning"; for once my explanation not the manga's. Apparently, Jenga still had 20 hour to live at the start of this fight, now due to "chakra radiation poisoning," he's got less than 30 minutes. After a few blows he down to ten. He panics and starts to choke Naruto. Then he realizes that Naruto is connected to Nail through that arm...And pulls him in. Remember, his goal was always to get karma replanted in Nail since his current body was failing him.


The chapter ends with Boruto being possessed by his Kaguya member; the effeminate one.


Next Chapter Dec 20th.

Boruto: The NeverEnding Prologue Chapter 51

21 October 2020 - 12:30 AM

I swear this was the weirdest release date for this chapter. Does this magazine always come out on the 20th of the month?


Summary Time: Chapter 51. Sacrifice....Oh please be Naruto.


Cover page is Naruto and Bolt...a very generically done cover page.


Continuing off from last time Jenga asked why Bolt thinks he can't kill him. After bragging about why would he answer him, he answers when Sasuke asked him. Blacksmith mentioned that he would be taking him along with Nail. So that means they must need his karma...Even though Kara exist because Jenga body is running out and they needed to find a new body for the kaguya clan member inside him. Bringing Bolt along to help revive another is a bonus not a/the main goal. Also the fact that Jenga's was a partner of kaguya (before she betrayed him) who Bolt's was hunting down.


Back to Madoc the constantly reexplaining exposition device and Shikamaru. Oh, in order for the ten tail to grow into a tree you need to feed it one of kaguya's clan members...never mind just going to move on.


Bolt decides to hold his own life hostage.


Back to Doctor Exposition. Ok. So, they invade a planet in pairs, but before one sacrifices the other for the tree that one implants Karma into a person so they can be reborn. Kaguya was of lower rank. So, she was the one that was suppose to sacrifice herself, then be revived, but she turn on her partner. Now Jenga is going to sacrifice Bolt to the ten tail so he doesn't have to do it himself. Even though with karma Jenga can still sacrifice himself and just wait till he is revived in Nail to eat the fruit; again finding Bolt with Karma was a bonus.


Jenga shrinks himself so Bolt & Sasuke both lose track of him. Sasuke tells Bolt to run, but is immediately K.O. Bolt tries to fight. Jenga point out he only needs Bolt alive not unharmed.


Back to Doctor Expostion. Nail eventually after more exposition that you can already guess from what I have previously summarized get pissed and asked Madoc what his game is. Madoc said something about this being his most logical choice. 


Oh Naruto is finally up. Oh apparently those cubes Jenga been using disrupt chakra sensing abilities. Naruto talk with Kurama and that he has no plan. Kurama offer him up his last resort that will kill him. Is he going to release Kurama? He jumps in to save Bolt and tells Kurama to activate it...Wow, it looks like kitten. Ok it his controlled-cloak mode but the coat is animated like tails and his marking around his eyes stretch out into ear-like appearance through chakra.


...Wait that is it. It ends with them staring in...awe at this new form.


Next Chapter Nov 20. Tune in next time for the last kitten fight of Naruto.

Boruto: The Never-Ending Prologue Chapter 50

18 September 2020 - 06:48 PM

Fifty chapter?! I think we finally reach what most other shounen manga would consider the end of their first year, but for Boruto their in fourth year.


Summary Time: Chapter 50, Potential Value, which is another thing Boruto lacks particularly in potential sales value.


Cover is Naruto in chakra mode. His pirmar...his only colors are orange and blue. It looked better when it was orange and black.


Continuing the fight from last month. Jenga of the nice manners is getting up after being push through that worm hole. Naruto ask where his son transported them, bolt doesn't know just thought he could use karma to transport them out of the village, and Naruto says he got his act first mindset from him. Jenga charges and Naruto moves to protect Bolt. He fails because... i don't know one of his broken powers. Jenga informs Bolt that is...Ohtsutsukification, yes that is a word they used, is about 70-80% complete. Jesus i figured that be lower if nothing else to play up the drama for a few arcs. Anyways, cut of the hand. Sasuke uses he swapping powers to rescue Bolt. He then attack with a chidori and fails. Naruto orders Bolt to run...so i guess those two can be defeated again. Jenga decides since all three are interfering with his retrieval of Nail he will just eliminate all three. Naruto says they won't go down that easily...sorry just keep remembering their last fight when they went down that easily.


Nail having some karma dream where he is being told he is empty and he needs Karma to fill him. According to what Orochimaru wants for his... son Bolt can do the filling for both of them. Nail wakes up in a safe room with Madoc and Shikamaru. Oh the clone their too. They explain he no longer has karma, he point out he is still not free because Jenga coming to plant another karma on him, and Madoc points out he only has a few days left to live; so of course he will succeed to keep the plot going.


Naruto charges with some rasengan. Jenga shrinks them...right I don't think they know about his power since he only revealed it after dealing with the observing toads. So, nothing has changed from their last fight since they still don't know what his powers are and their opponent is now going all out because he on a timer. He uses Kurama's chakra arms to beat him up while Bolt watches. Naruto and Sasuke try for a combo attack, when Naruto has him grab so sasuke can stab him with a chidori. Jenga uses his power to summon cubes to fall on them to interrupt the combo. This works to stop the combo, so, he summons more cubes to do the same with crushing them. Jenga decides to go after Sasuke first. He shrinks Sasuke's sword, so he can hit him with his thick black rod; then once he gets sasuke down on his knees, he enlarges Sasuke's sword in his hand to try to kill him with it.


Back to Nail and the rest. They realize Bolt also went to go fight and Madoc says this is bad because Jenga will realize Bolt's title drop: potential value.


Back to the fight. Bolt charges in to save Sasuke from being stabbed in the head with his own sword. He throws a smoke bomb to get away. A slip of the tongue from Jenga make Bolt realize that he doesn't want to kill Bolt of course because he is a few uses of karma away from becoming a cousin of his, and Bolt thinks he found a weakness they can exploit. They can't have Bolt died because that would end this manga. 


Next one is October 20th.

Boruto: The NeverEnding Prologue Chapter 49

20 August 2020 - 10:06 PM

Its too hot.


Summary Time: Chapter 49 Prepared. ~Be Prepared, for a snore of a life time. Be Prepared, to wonder why this is still ongoing.~


Cover page is Jenga with his new coat he looks like some wanna-be gangster...are those Pein's rods? God damn is going to be a call back to the Pein arc like that last panel of the last chapter was.


Random people going about their lives. Some good designs some crappy. Then someone notices...god he's design is so over done, it just looks silly. Can we go back to the aliens in kimonos? While standing in the middle of the air like a jackass, he is looking around the village trying to find a Nail with his byakugan.


Now to Naruto going out face him. Apparently, Bolt is still arguing how he should fight too but is thankfully shut down quickly. Sasuke looks on.


Back to Jenga...yep this is Pein Invasion again. He nicely asks the police where he can find Nail...god their military jackets have gotten worse over the years the older one was iconic why they throw it out? He uses his powers to defeat the police casually. Wait. Wait. There is a difference between the two though, during the Pein arc people were willing to die with a smile on their face instead of ratting Naruto out. Here, a quick magic trick and one dead officer and his partner says they haven't been told who he is looking for. Jenga of Nice Manners thanks him and ask if he can point him in the direction of those that do. The standards of the average rank and file ninja have certainly lower since Tsunade's time.


Back to Sai Shikamaru taking Nail and Madoc out of the room to hide them, Madoc explains what they need to do for them to be able to hide. Sasuke decides to have a "piccolo talk" with Bolt.


Naruto find Jenga. Sasuke does the whole you are right Bolt and I will help you do this bad idea that will surely backfire. Though he does warn that karma must be progressing and he may be losing himself soon. I don't see the down side according to his fans being a hyuuga is the greatest thing ever, and if he died the manga may end its the best ending.


Jenga is surprise Naruto got out of his pot. While Naruto brag about how many outstanding ninja they have in the village and he must be frighten...looks back a few pages or looks up to what I just typed. Jenga uses his powers on a building to try to threaten that he will hold the villagers lives hostage if he doesn't get Nail. Naruto starts the fight. Cloak on. Gets his ass kicked till Sasuke appears. Sasuke apologizes about being late say he had to prepare himself...we all know he talking about Bolt. Naruto doesn't but find it weird he had to prepare himself.


Oh that's clever. After throwing some shruiken he throws his sword but Jenga can't shrink it. Then we find out its because the blade is Bolt. So another wave arc call back. Explain Jenga power as well as how they came up with this plan. Also, he give Bolt his scratch headband. He uses that weird teleportation power to move Jenga outside the village. Naruto and Sasuke follow through the portal.


Again, power scaling. And can they do nothing that is not just copying Naruto?!


Next Sept. 18

Boruto: The NeverEnding Prologue Chapter 48

21 July 2020 - 12:09 AM

Oh joy another month has passed... and I have 4,444 post.


Summary time: Chapter 48..."Happy" fourth year of this manga apparently. Time Limit...Oh, I wish this manga had a time limit.


Cover is Bolt looking at his Karma tattoo.


Oh Good. They are finally doing something smart for once and hopefully focusing on Clone Jiraya and Jenga's fight. CJ tries throwing jutsu and Jenga shrinks them. Cj is out match. Jenga gloats about his power but says he has only a few day left to live because of it. He also decides to mention that Nail no longer has Karma. Despite that he says CJ still failed to be a proper Ninja Tool...again wasn't this something Naruto stood against? Like since the wave arc!?! CJ activates Sage mode on his own.


God damnit were back in Konoha with Madoc looking over his amnesty papers or what ever he kept wanting. More boring dialogue. Brings up how Jenga needs to come to Konoha to re-implant Karma into Nail before he dies. So, he needs Naruto and Sasuke to stick around because they are the only two that stand any chance against him...even though he has already kick their asses.


Back to Clone Jiraiya. He continues to use fire attacks, one jutsu even just called "fire attack". Then decides he will flack attack him with a rasengan in the rear. Then Jenga does kitten eye justu shenanigans. "Daikokuten," the great god of darkness/wealth/household/commerce/cooks/prosperity/thievery/crops of the seven gods of fortune in Japanese mythology, to summon pillars he has shrunken to be stored in another dimension. Also this power seems to be based off the Uchide no Kozuchi a magic hammer that Daikokuten possesses that is said to grant wishes. They crushed three of CJ's limbs. Jenga finally does something kittenish by summoning a spare coat and some wine to show off while explain it. Then he talks and talks. CJ escapes by summoning a toad.


...Back to Konoha where Naruto and Bolt are fighting...again. The background are lovely the character designs are still bad. Bolt wants to fight the guy that can only be fought by the two strongest ninjas and still come out winning. No mention of Sakura getting involve. Naruto says no. Sasuke chimes in saying Naruto and Him are willing to die for the village if needs be, and questions if Bolt has the resolve to do the same...Going off that misshapen face? No.


Jenga appears over the Gates of konaha.


Next one Aug. 20.


...This was probably the best chapter if not for the Konoha bits.


Part of the problem with this manga is Ikemoto character design don't mesh well with Kishimoto's. So, when it Clone Jiraiya -who without the tear marking would not look a thing like him- and Jenga; the art more or less look fine because they are clearly from the same style. When you have Madoc and Naruto character; you have this weird highly detailed character surrounded by a bunch of cartoon characters. And with Bolt, Sasuke, and Naruto despite them being the main characters; he still can't draw them right so they look off most of the time or misshapen when he messes up.


Also how has everyone feel about the plot after 4 years?
