"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 49 spoilers

Isshiki is set to invade Konohagakure in this chapter. Twitter user OrganicDinosaur has released the latest spoiler which hints that Isshiki will be unstoppable. It remains to be seen how Boruto, Kawaki, Naruto and the rest of the gang will respond.

Meanwhile, in Chapter 47 of the manga, Boruto is shocked to see Isshiki absorbing the flames. However, Kawaki explains that Isshiki is only shrinking them as they are natural flames.

The technique is Isshiki’s secret jutsu called Sukunahikona. This jutsu is capable of shrinking almost anything except living things.

However, when Jigen’s body starts running out of chakra, he starts burning again. Naruto wonders if this is how Isshiki will end, but Sasuke is quick to point out that he still has two karmas left before he can reincarnate.

He adds that currently, he has Kawaki and Jigen – two vessels implanted with karma.

Later in the chapter, Amado explains that Jigen will start to burn to death for a few minutes with Isshiki inside his being. When Isshiki dies, the reincarnation process starts almost immediately and even Isshiki cannot control it. Since Jigen’s karma was completely extracted, his body can be used as a vessel for Isshiki. But Kawaki has still not completed the process and his body cannot be used until the process reaches completion.

Naruto then asks Amado if his plan includes killing Kawaki to deprive Isshiki a vessel.

"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 48 is scheduled to release Monday, July 20. Fans can read the latest chapter online on Viz and Manga Plus.
