The latest preview for "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 51 is out. Twitter user OrganicDinosaur shared the brief synopsis for the next chapter.

The preview teases Sasuke, Naruto and Boruto struggle to contain Isshiki as the fate of Konohagakure is on the line. However, Boruto might be the key to overcome this enemy and save the village.

In "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 50, Isshiki, Boruto, Sasuke and Naruto are transported to an unknown location. Naruto is surprised to learn that Boruto doesn't know where they are.

Boruto reveals he was aware Isshiki could travel to other dimensions, so he tried the same thing using Karma. Moreover, they can fight freely here as they don't have to worry about any collateral damage.

Isshiki bounces and rushes toward the trio. Naruto intervenes and tries to hit the opponent, but Isshiki disappears.

Sasuke tells Naruto to look up as Isshiki grabs Boruto and floats in the sky. Isshiki figures out that Boruto's Otsutsuki transformation stands at 80% and he wonders the incredible powers Boruto possesses.

Sasuke manages to free Boruto from Isshiki's chokehold. Boruto is back on the ground while Sasuke prepares to battle Isshiki.

Sasuke launches an attack but Isshiki easily grabs his wrist and stops the attack. Isshiki tells Sasuke he is getting in his way and kicks him.

Meanwhile, Naruto tells Boruto to move to a safer location as Isshiki might kill him. Later, Naruto engages with Isshiki in a fierce battle.

In the chapter, Kawaki suddenly wakes up from some sort of a nightmare. Amado, who is sitting next to him, tells Kawaki they are safe. Shikamaru informs them they are getting updates from the monitoring team and Isshiki and Boruto's chakra have vanished.

Toward the end of the chapter, Boruto learns that Isshiki is not willing to kill him and it is an important intel for the trio. Elsewhere, Amado praises Boruto's nature and announces that he can be a key to victory in this battle against Isshiki.

"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 51 is scheduled to release in October. Viz, the official website for the manga series, is yet to announce the release date for the chapter.
