Warning! Spoilers for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations 13th chapter lie below!
When it comes to Naruto, fans of the franchise know how many deadly jutsu are out there. Orochimaru is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to demented techniques, and the Boruto sequel is now carrying on with the stomach-churning tradition. The latest chapter of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations just introduced a totally insane jutsu to fans, it has guys like Madara Uchiha looking like a saint.
The Boruto manga is further along than its recent anime, and its story just overtook the story arc of Boruto: Naruto the Movie. The manga is well into its new 'Mujina' arc as it explores a new villainous organization similar to the Foundation. So far, fans have only met one of the group's members, and the Boss is not someone you want to mess with.
In the 13th chapter of Boruto, fans watched as a villain named Shojuji held a Feudal Lord's son hostage. When the boy tried to kill himself as a means of escape, the Mujina thug held him down and explained how his unique forbidden jutsu works. To ensure he can get ransom money from the boy's father, Shojuji is prepared to become the heir permanently using a technique which requires him to eat the kid.
According to Shojuji, his forbidden jutsu works by having its user eat the brain of living person. The gruesome act allows them to gain the victim's face and voice perfectly. "In order to take in a face to use for the Shikabane Bunshin, it requires eating the brain while it's still alive," the mobster explains before diving in for the kill.
Luckily, Boruto manages to stop the thug from killing his charge before the Feudal Lord's son dies. Shojuji is still out there and perfectly capable of using the twisted technique, so it could reappear in later chapters. Just, if it does, fans hope they won't have to watch Shojuji prepare for the attack thanks to its explicit nature.
