Naruto with his new chakra mode will fight against Isshiki. "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52 is a few days away from its official release and the V Jump teaser is out, hinting at the big battle between Naruto and Isshiki.

Twitter user Abdul Zoldyck tweeted the teaser for "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52 from V Jump. Zoldyck credited Nitebaron for the translation.

"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52’s brief teaser suggests that Boruto will stand as a decoy as Naruto prepares to battle Isshiki. However, Boruto wonders if Naruto can beat Isshiki.

Meanwhile, in "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52, Kawaki, who escaped the threat of karma, remains frustrated because he is unable to help his comrades. The teaser questions if Kawaki can really escape Karma.

In the previous chapter, Boruto explains why Isshiki cannot kill him. He recalls the incident when Boro talked about a plan that is connected to the Divine Tree and that Isshiki wants to use him for planting the tree.

Meanwhile, the scene changes and Shikamaru asks Amado about why Isshiki needs Boruto for the Divine Tree. Amado reveals that Ten-Tails is the necessary seedling for growing a Divine Tree, but there is a special condition. Amado adds that Isshiki needs to feed a living Ohtsutsuki to Ten-Tails.

Back in the other dimension, Isshiki is disappointed after he learns about Boro’s reveal. He is shocked that Boruto could beat Boro. Boruto tells him that it was not just him, Kawaki and the others also played a key role in defeating Boro.

Boruto reminds him that Konoha Genin are legit. However, Isshiki ridicules him for his inability to defeat him. Later, to everyone's shock, Boruto whips out a kunai and threatens to kill himself. Sasuke shouts at Boruto and tells him to not attempt this stunt against Isshiki.

But, Isshiki disappears and manages to shrink Boruto’s kunai. Sasuke notes that they need to stall Isshiki just enough to let his life span run out. Later, Boruto fires a Rasengan at Isshiki, but the latter grabs his arm and tells him that he has no plans of killing him. However, he can still torture Boruto as much as he wants.

Meanwhile, Naruto joins the battle but is unable to sense their chakra due to Isshiki’s cubes. Toward the end of the chapter, Naruto tells Kurama that he is ready for the new form and deal with Isshiki.

"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52 is scheduled to release Friday, Nov. 20. The digital version of the manga chapter will be available on Viz and Manga Plus.
