Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has seen the villainous collection of ninjas known as the Kara Organization operate under new management, with the young antagonist Code working hard to get revenge for the death of his master, Jigen. While the manga series is set to go on hiatus this summer until August following the release of this latest chapter, Shonen Jump is giving fans a surprise by revealing what Code looks like in full color as he attempts to eliminate all the ninjas of the Hidden Leaf Village.
In the latest chapter, Code might have managed to receive his new transformation thanks to Amado granting him full access to his power, but he is seemingly unable to hold together his new version of the Kara Organization, as Eida is simply focused on gaining the affection of Kawaki. In previous battles, Code proved himself to be a powerhouse even without this new power-up, holding his own against the likes of Boruto, Kawaki, and Naruto to name a few. Gaining white hair along with his upgrade, Code is set to be a serious villain in the future of the Shonen franchise.
The Official Twitter Account for Shonen Jump shared the new cover for the 71st chapter of the manga series, featuring Code's newest transformation that not only makes the antagonist feel like he "can defeat any opponent" but also changes his hair color in the style of the Dragon Ball series:

In the anime adaptation, the series is taking a break from the events of the manga, instead, focusing on Team 7 journeying to the Land of Water, with Boruto and his friends recently having to deal with some major casualties of characters that never had the opportunity to appear in the pages of the printed story. With creator Masashi Kishimoto returning as the writer of the series, it's clear that the mangaka isn't afraid to take the story into some unexpected territory, with the series already seeing the likes of Jigen and the Nine-Tailed Fox kicking the bucket.
What do you think of Code's new transformation? Do you think the Kara Organization is completely done for with Eida and Daemon jumping ship? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of the Hidden Leaf Village.
