A brief recap of chapter 61…
Chapter 61 in the Boruto manga was titled ‘Madness’ and opened with Boruto and Kawaki continuing to be monitored in case of an attack by Code.
Kawaki is irritated at the lack of privacy and trust that the surveillance brings, sneaking out of the village using a shadow clone and hiding his Chakra.
Boruto is trying to figure out a way to contact Kawaki without alerting the surveillance team, but after Eida informs Code about Kawaki’s movements, he sets off to track him down himself.
