Boruto: Naruto Next Generations’ manga is continuing the story of Konoha’s war against Kara, while the anime series throws some other unique challenges at Team 7, but it seems as though Masashi Kishimoto, the man responsible for the Shonen franchise, has done the unthinkable. It would seem that Code’s time as the leader of Kara might have come to an end, shortly after bringing together a new more powerful version of the crew, as the latest chapter has shaken things up within the ninja world.
Warning. If you have yet to read the latest chapter of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Chapter 71, you might want to steer clear as we’ll be diving into spoiler territory.
Since the new allies to Code, Eida and her brother Daemon, joined up with this new Kara Organization, the alliance between the siblings and the failed Vessel has been shaky at best. Eida simply wanted to ally herself with Code in order to get closer to Kawaki, the object of her desire, as the latest addition to the Uzumaki family is one of the only figures who can avoid her power of making targets fall in love with her.
With Kara capturing Amado, the former head of the organization’s research and development team, Code simply wants to be done with him, threatening to kill the perceived turncoat. Luckily for Amado, he is able to get Eida’s attention by stating that he has an “in” with Kawaki, causing both Eida and Daemon to turn against Code, with the new head of Kara now having no one but himself to rely on.
What’s most surprising about this split isn’t the fact that it happened, but the fact that Daemon’s power appears to be far beyond his two cohorts, with the young villain managing to easily defeat Code, even going so far as to say that he’s stronger than Jigen was at his peak.
The chapter ends with Eida and Daemon actually considering becoming a part of the Hidden Leaf Village, with Amado offering to “mediate”, meaning that Naruto and company might have two powerful new allies set to assist them, even with Code still plotting his revenge.
What do you think the future holds for Kara now that Code is seemingly the only member? 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.
