Did you finish Chapter 080 and are now looking for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 081 spoilers and release timeline? Unfortunately, Chapter 081 won’t be released until later this summer, meaning we have a ton of time to wait to see what happens. However, as soon as Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 081 spoilers are released, we will provide them, so you don’t have to wait until the official chapter release three months from now.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 080 Recap: What Really Happened to Naruto?

In the previous chapter titled ‘What Dad Would Do!’, Kawaki triggered Eida’s Omnipotence power, causing him to switch places with Boruto. As the new chapter begins, Boruto is still on the run, and Eida is compelled to deceive Shikamaru by falsely claiming that Boruto killed Naruto. This news has deeply affected Shikamaru and the other Konoha ninjas as they continue their search for our young protagonist.

One of the most impressive moments in the current chapter is when Sumire pieced together the puzzle. She remained calm like Shikamaru while she figured out the effects of Eida’s power. Although she didn’t know why she and Salad were unaffected, Sumire deserves credit for theorizing what had happened to everyone else and how Eida was involved. It was great to see how intelligent and perceptive Sumire is; Chapter 80 did an excellent job of showcasing that.

Another highlight of the chapter was how it portrayed Boruto’s growth and maturity in dealing with his current situation. Despite the whole world being after him, 12-year-old Boruto couldn’t help but think about Kawaki. He realized that, in a way, he had cornered Kawaki. It was Boruto who had asked Kawaki to kill him to stop Momoshiki. Furthermore, Boruto tried to empathize with Kawaki’s past without genuinely listening and understanding his perspective.

The conclusion of ‘What Dad Would Do!’ saw Boruto seeking to repair his relationships, while Kawaki remained intent on killing Boruto and Code to protect Naruto. Meanwhile, Code set his sights on eliminating Boruto for taking Isshiki, Eida, and Jigen away from him.
