While most fans know that Boruto will be travelling back into the past to meet a younger version of his father, Naruto, along with the rest of the ninja students of Konoha, most don't know exactly how the time travelling adventure was going to take place. Now, the secret of just how the young son of the Hokage and the last member of the Uchiha Clan travel back to a time long past has seemingly been revealed and it definitely isn't the way you may have originally thought.
Twitter User SpirallingSphe2 shared an image of a turtle named Karasuki that is seemingly going to be the impetus for how both Boruto and his Sharingan wiedling sensei manage to make the trip back to the past of Konoha, encountering many older versions of figures we haven't seen in some time:
It has been reported and confirmed that this turtle in the scan is named Karasuki. Karasuki sends Boruto and Sasuke 20 years back into time!! pic.twitter.com/hblKDVIoHW— Spiralling Sphere (@SpirallingSphe2) October 10, 2019
In both the anime and manga, Boruto has been struggling with the nefarious machinations of the Otsutsuki Clan, a group of celestial ninja that travel from reality to reality in search of chakra to extend their own lives. Whether or not Urashiki and his villainous clan will have a direct role in this upcoming time travel arc is yet to be seen, but considering just how much weight they've had in the series to date, we wouldn't be surprised if they managed to make an appearance!
Of course, it's pretty laughable that this big jaunt is caused entirely by a magical turtle but when you look at the history of the Naruto franchise as a whole, this is hardly the craziest thing we've ever seen!
What do you think of the hilarious method that Boruto and Sasuke will be travelling into the past? What other hilarity do you think will be awaiting the present and past ninja of Konoha?

Originally created by Masashi Kishimoto for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, Naruto follows a young ninja, with a sealed demon within him, that wishes to become the leader of his home village. The series ran for 700 chapters overall, and was adapted into an anime series by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex that ran from 2002 to 2017. The series was popular enough to warrant a sequel, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations which is set several years after the events of the original Naruto story and features the children of many of its key characters such as Naruto and Hinata.
