Boruto: the first appearance of Kawaki and the divine power of Boruto
WARNING: The ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
The number 23 of "Weekly Shonen Jump" (Shueisha), available in Japan from Wednesday, may 2, 2018 in Japan, will reveal the chapter number 23 of Boruto: Naruto the Next Generations, the manga written by Ukyo Kodachi, designed by Mikio Ikemoto, edited and supervised by Masashi Kishimoto and the direct sequel of the masterpiece “Naruto”.
The chapter, titled “Karma,” can be defined, without too many doubts the best that the series of Boruto has never offered since its debut in may 2016 since not only adds an important piece to the current story arc of the emergence of the Organization Kara, but launch a signal toward the future of the series, or better, towards that future, and for anyone who is in par with the programming of the japanese will surely have already caught our thinking.
Even if you are simply following a weekly series of animated Boruto, inspired by the manga of which we are precisely talking about, you know that the first true opening scene shows the life of the new generation in the near future, but that future is made of the destruction and the complete desolation with the Leaf Village completely destroyed including the faces of the Hokage.
On that monument there are, however, two warriors, a villain and a ninja, Kawaki and Boruto.
Kawaki is the villain who has committed that horrendous destruction and in the back there is the ninja, Boruto, which seeks in some way to preserve his role from the moment that the menacing new enemy seems to want to put it completely end to the era of the ninja and send the son of Naruto where is the latter (which leaves us to deduce a dark scenario). In the course of that moment, Boruto and Kawaki prepare to fight, and in the first crash, activated their power deriving from a sign cursed on the palm of the hand and then spread on the body as a tattoo.
After the battle, nothing is known, nor of the scenario and neither of Kawaki.
However, in the last chapter of the manga, we had a luscious taste of all this mystery is still too veiled.
After the death of Ao, external member of the Organization Kara, Kashin Koji, it is revealed in our new ninja (the new Team 7, led by Konohamaru) and started a violent confrontation in which he revealed some of his abilities like the Rasengan and various other skills that come from training to be a ninja and not thanks to the technology ninja.
Later, the villain resorts to a technique of seal that is about to kill Konohamaru, but Boruto, driven by the instinct to save it, evokes for the first time the power generated by the sign cursed mentioned before. The sign propagates to the body like a tattoo and Kashin Koji, surprised and frightened, he recognises the danger and then in retreat for the moment. In addition, the masked man calls the power of Boruto, with the name of “Karma”.
The power of doom is built in Boruto immediately after killing Momoshiki Otsutsuki, or a deity. The same Momoshiki, before his death, had revealed that killing a God is the equivalent, and be cursed and his life will be peppered. The power conferred is one of these curses.

Later, after the temporary disappearance of Kashin Koji, the group decides to return to the Leaf Village to report all of this to Naruto, but in the journey they meet a young boy lifeless on the ground after a tough battle against the puppet technology. Of instinct, thus avoiding the danger, Boruto is the catapult to check the status of the boy and realizes that the latter also owns the trade mark, the cursed on the wrist of the hand.
And then here is revealed the first real glimpse of Kawaki, the next villain in the series. The villain will show up with that sign, a curse, and therefore he, too, has been the protagonist of the murder of a God.
The chapter concludes with a Boruto really puzzled, and this is only the beginning to what will be the disaster generated a new warfare that will destroy the foundations of peace that not for a long time reigns in the new generation.
