"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 52 Summary

Naruto and Nine Tails or Kurama talk about the former's new mode after the fusion. Kurama compares the new mode to nuclear fusion. He states that it is like fusing two energy matters to make a new energy source.

However, Kurama warns Naruto against making any unnecessary moves during the battle as they need to conserve the new mode for as long as possible.

Naruto and Isshiki begin the next phase of their fight. With his new form, Naruto is able to overwhelm his opponent. Moreover, the Seventh Hokage blocks Isshiki's attacks.

Meanwhile, Isshiki uses his cubes technique and buries Naruto under giant blocks. Naruto fights back and emerges out of the pile of blocks. Isshiki is surprised to sense this sudden increase in Naruto's power levels.

In another dimension, Kawaki's prosthetic arm starts to move unexpectedly. Later in the chapter, a portal opens, sucking Kawaki into it. Kawaki finds himself next to Naruto, Boruto and others.

Sasuke and Naruto are shocked to see Kawaki. The chapter concludes with Naruto on the verge of losing the battle and just then, Boruto opens his eyes.
