Ikada has turned down Boruto’s offer to stop the ongoing war. Since Boruto is unable to change his friend’s mind, he makes a difficult decision in "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Episode 254.

The official promo trailer of Episode 254 shows Boruto crying and confessing that even he is scared of dying. But he is not the only one; he remembers all the people who gave up their lives in the fighting.

Boruto announces that they cannot let this war continue and claim more innocent lives on both sides. In order to completely stop this cycle of hatred, someone has to take all the pain, and that someone is Boruto.

In the last episode of the series, members of Team 7 visited Ikada, who was fighting against the Land of Water. Boruto attempted to convince Ikada to stop the war but the latter, coldly, turned down his requests.

“Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki go meet with Ikada, who has now sided against the Land of Water. Boruto tries talking to Ikada as a friend to get him to stop fighting. But since Boruto is responsible for what happened to his sister Seiren, Ikada refuses to listen. Even still, Boruto persistently tries to reason with him. Ikada coldly proposes a certain condition,” read the official synopsis of Episode 253, as per Crunchyroll.
