It’s been a lengthy four months, but Boruto is back, and the eponymous hero will be stronger than ever. The scion of Konoha’s Uzumaki family and son of Hokage Naruto Uzumaki has seen a horrible turn of events that has thrust him into the loneliness and isolation felt by his adoptive brother, Kawaki.

RECAP: Boruto: Naruto Next Generations and Chapter 80 Spoilers, and What to Expect in Chapter 81 Timeskip
Eida’s omnipotence was triggered with horrifying results. Kawaki, wishing for a way to justify killing Boruto and ending the existential threat to Konoha, altered the public’s memories and swapped places and lives with Boruto. Konoha’s forces will pursue Boruto, thinking he’s the traitorous outsider out to kill the Hokage’s son, so he has to train to confront Kawaki and end this.
It’s here that we see Boruto lose his privilege and start from nothing. We’ll see plenty of developments, like why Boruto now has Sasuke’s sword, and Code’s Pain-like attack plot against Konoha. But something tells me that Boruto’s stronger than a little army of Code’s Claw Grime.
