Boruto has spent plenty of time differentiating itself from the Naruto series before it, but fans knew the titles were going to intersect before long. The sequel can try running from the past, but Boruto has dues to pay with its heroes and villains. And thanks to an all-new chapter, fans have learned a terrifying secret about Boruto's baddies.
It turns out they've got their own Tailed Beast in storage, and fans have all sorts of questions.
Recently, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations put out a new chapter, and it was there fans learned more about Kara. It turns out Sasuke Uchiha was sent to some coordinates connected to the terrorist group, but he did not expect to find a chained Tailed Beast waiting for him there.
"Ugh! Bijuu! What's going on here?!!! And what is this place," Sasuke asks.
Continuing, the Uchiha leader confirmed a rather obvious thought fans had after seeing the monster. The Tailed Beast resembles the Ten-Tails monster from the last Great Ninja War... and that cannot mean anything good.
"This Bijuu resembles Ten-Tails. It even has a Rinnegan. It's movements are sealed by those rods. I can't determine the number of tails it has from here. What kind of entity did this?"
Before the chapter ends, Jigen shows up to suck power from the monster, and the Kara leader refers to the beast as the Ten-Tails. Of course, this made fans confused as the Ten-Tails was sealed in the last war and divvied up. Now, it seems the monster (or something just like it) is back, and Kara appears to have the means to control the Ten-Tails unlike Kaguya ever could.
So, what do you think about this bijuu's big debut...? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
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.
