Konohagakure is a place where anyone can live at ease and this is Lord Seventh Naruto's job as Hokage. However, Kawaki feels he is nothing but a burden for the Uzumaki family and the village.

Twitter user Abdul Zoldyck has shared a preview of "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 61, hinting at a threat that is likely going to hit Konohagakure.

Also, Kawaki's real intentions about how he can protect the village and his family from Kara will be shown in the chapter.

"An approaching threat...!! And what are Kawaki's true intentions ...!?" read the preview of Chapter 61.

In "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 60, titled "A Place To Belong," Shikamaru, Ibiki and Sai discussed the claw marks on the roof of the office. They are markers placed at a designated location and are quite typical of what Code does. Earlier, Amado revealed Code has the ability to transport himself from mark to mark.

Shikamaru wondered if Code can travel without using Space-Time Ninjutsu. As long as Code had the claw marks, he can move freely. Sai noted there were no marks found in the village, but the teams continued to look for them.

Later, in "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 60, Code explained to Daemon, Eida and Bug how he uses his signature claw marks to move. He said he has the ability to even take one person with him.

Elsewhere, Kawaki was shown sitting on top of Naruto's head on the monument of Hokage. Later, he decides not to visit the Uzumaki residence.

Hinata had prepared an elaborate dinner for her family but she was surprised to see Kawaki missing. Naruto managed to locate Kawaki and took him back to his house.

Boruto presented his headband to Kawaki who was shocked because he was not a shinobi yet.

Boruto explained he was training to be a full ninja and so he deserved it. Moreover, he told him it was a loaner and he can return it later. After completing the training, Shinobi was presented with a headband. 

Kawaki was still feeling out of place and blaming himself for all the mess that Konohagakure was in.

"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations" Chapter 61 is scheduled to release on Aug. 18 on Viz and Manga Plus. Its print version will be out on Aug. 19.
