The most-awaited chapter is coming out this Friday. Early leaks for "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52 hint at a major character losing the fight.

Twitter user Abdul Zoldyck shared the summary of the upcoming chapter and credited Nitebaron for translations.

"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52 kick starts with Naruto and Kurama or Nine Tails discussing the new mode as the latter compares it with nuclear fusion.

Kurama adds that it is fusing their chakras to create a new energy form. Naruto wonders if it is different from Six-Paths mode or Nine-Tails mode. Kurama explains it is a different kind of energy on a fundamental level as they are attempting to fuse two chakras to create new energy.

Kurama warns Naruto to avoid any unnecessary movements and prolong the new form for as long as they can. The fight against Isshiki begins and Naruto manages to have an upper hand in the battle. The Seventh Hokage also dodges some of Isshiki's blows.

Later, Isshiki bounces back in the fight and uses his cubes technique to bury Naruto under massive cube blocks. However, to Isshiki's surprise, Naruto lifts the blocks and emerges in front of his opponent. Amid the chaos, Sasuke tries to take Boruto to a safe location away from the war zone.

Naruto throws the blocks back at Isshiki who shrinks them and attacks him with chakra rods. Naruto, in his new form, can grab the rods with his bare hands. Isshiki is shocked to witness his sudden power surge.

"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52 switches to Kawaki and Amado's location. They are talking about Kawaki's prosthetic arm, which was originally crafted for Naruto. Moreover, the arm can only be controlled by Naruto's chakra.

The arm starts to move, leaving everyone shocked. Meanwhile, at the battlefield, Naruto is exhausted and his new mode seems to be weakening. Sasuke wonders if Naruto's form is deteriorating. Boruto starts to worry about his father's current state but he faints due to his injuries.

Naruto is aware that his new form will disappear soon. Isshiki seems to sense Naruto's terrible condition. The villain announces that Naruto will have to give his life in order to make his new form work against him.

Isshiki is elated to beat Naruto, and suddenly he starts vomiting blood. A visibly shaken Isshiki wonders if Naruto's earlier attacks are fatal. Naruto declares that the real battle begins now.

In the chapter, Isshiki notes that his life span is decreasing at a rapid pace and he only has 30 minutes to survive the ordeal.

Nine-Tails advises Naruto to focus on delivering single blows to take down Isshiki. However, Isshiki attacks again and he might win the battle against Naruto.

In "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52, the scene transitions to Kawaki and people are shocked to see his arm move in a strange way. At that moment, a portal opens and Kawaki is sucked inside and arrives at the battlefield.

Isshiki explains that he is able to pull in Kawaki at the right time. Naruto and Sasuke are confused about Kawaki. Boruto, who fainted earlier, suddenly opens his eyes.

"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52 is scheduled to release Friday. Fans can read the chapter online on Viz and Manga Plus.
