Boruto chapter 54: Spoilers

SPOILER WARNING: Do not read on unless you wish to know potential spoilers for Boruto chapter 54.

  • Chapter starts with Boroshiki saying that he has removed Sasuke’s spacetime ninjutsu, but Naruto reveals that Momoshiki has now taken over Boruto’s body completely.
  • Kawaki attempts to reach Boruto by saying “Cut it out you b*****d” but Borushiki mocks him, saying “You’re free now aren’t you? Isshiki Otsutsuki’s soul has been completely destroyed.”
  • Kawaki attacks Borushiki, but he manages to dodge easily and stabs Kawaki in the back – meanwhile Naruto passes out.
  • He then reveals that he is planning on feeding Kawaki to the ten tails so they can extract to chakra fruit.
  • Borushiki is winning the fight, but Sasuke then steps in to help. He uses a lightning release to force Borushiki back – but he uses a shadow clone to avoid the black flames.
  • Sasuke realises that Borushiki is unable to absorb the ninjutsu and tells Kawaki that this could be a way to deal with him.
  • Sasuke then realises that Boruto may be able to regain control if his chakra is restored, which may be why Borushiki is unable to absorb chakra himself – under the assumption this would restore Boruto.
  • Borushiki launches a vanishing resengan attack which hits Sasuke, who goes down.
  • Kawaki is able to land a hit on Borushiki using the last of his chakra and loses consciousness.
  • However, just as Borushiki attempts to finish his plan, Boruto wakes up and breaks off the horn – he now has full control back.
  • The chapter ends with Sasuke looking over Naruto’s unconscious body in a concerned manner.

As always, take leaked spoilers with a pinch of salt and read chapters through official sources.
