Is Naruto Really Dead In The New Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Manga?

Now that the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations manga has been translated into English, it’s time for me to discuss the most controversy topic that came out of it, that been is Naruto really gone from the world of the living…

Originally, I wanted to write a review for this new installment of the manga but since majority of the manga was a recap of the movie “Boruto – Naruto the Movie”, I instead did a first impression of the manga which you can find here. Instead I want to discuss the topic that everyone and their mama are talking about and that is if Naruto has really been killed off in the future.

The reason why this has taken the Naruto community by storm is because no one wanted to see Naruto get killed just yet, I mean he just became the 7th Hokage, a dream he has chased for so long. Not only that, he also has achieved the dream of his late sensei and mentor Jiraiya, a dream that sees the shinobi world connected and in peace. So basically most of us wanted to see Naruto enjoy the peace that he has fought for and rightfully earned and deserve.

Not only that but on top of all the stated facts above, the biggest issue the community has with this notion of Naruto been killed is that, who in the hell is even strong enough to take down the strongest shinobi in his time. If Madara Uchiha and Kaguya Ōtsutsuki couldn’t kill him, there’s no way a mere shinobi could kill him right? This led to the community coming up with a bunch of theories as to how he got killed or died. Natural conditions such as old age kept him from fighting against Kawaki, Kyūbi been stripped off him to give Boruto the edge against Kawaki or poisoned in his sleep were just a few of the things the community came up with to try and justify him been gone.

I personally believe it’s none of the above. Before I go on, I just need to say that there’s no confirmation that Naruto is actually dead. I am just basing this off of what Kawaki said in the manga. I think, now this is just my opinion and a theory, that Naruto actually passed away a while back, before the encounter with Boruto and Kawaki ever even took place. The reason why I’m saying this is because, judging from what Kawaki said in this brief moment on panel, it doesn’t seem to appear that he was the one who killed the 7th Hokage and there’s a number of things that point to that direction.

First of all, there’s no way the village would have reached to that level of destruction if either Naruto or Sasuke were around. It’s not plausible, we know what Naruto and Sasuke are capable of doing. They would have forced the threat right out of the village before it did any major damage. My guess is that Naruto probably, before all of this , passed away in some incident were he had sacrifice himself to save his family and the village.

Now with Sasuke, it’s a different matter, as he tends to not be around a lot, it is possible that he may not even be aware of the disaster that has struck the village. So whether he is still alive or not remains to be answered. All I know is if this isn’t handled well, it would honestly be a shame to see a character we all grew up with get taken out so easily, we’ve seen his struggle and witnessed his come up story, all to become Hokage, just to be killed off by some unknown villain who really shouldn’t be on his level at all.

I also think it’s going to be a while before we’ll actually get to see what led up to this fight so for now all we can do is wait and pray that not only do they not butcher the legacy of Naruto, but also that the art-style of this manga improves, greatly, because they did what many of us thought to be impossible, they made Hinata ugly as hell and for that I can never forgive them.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

    1. I think kawaki both sasuke and naruto’s son theory may be true but whatever.I dont believe naruto is death.Kishimoto is trying to get attention.Probably naruto faked his death.Or like his father he gived his life for his children and be in the same situation like obito.what I mean by obito is his body get injured or he act like someone other.Hiding his identity.Sasuke couldnt be dead because he is sasuke not an normal shinobi.I heard a theory which kawaki is Naruto who changed his identity.But they are stupid theories.But if someone who is stronger than naruto is created or this persons abilities is boosted this must be an experimential work(scientist work).And masashi cant kill naruto becaus then no one will watch this anime and even masashi or director(who is making the anime) will lose his job.Yeah dont kill naruto or you will be killed up directors.

  1. Naruto didn’t die even when he was fighting an orribly created character on the surface of the moon, so for him to have died in some sort of incident the way his father did…just wtf could have happened?? Poison shouldn’t work too much on him thanks to kurama, and there’s no way he could have died in a direct fight, he’s just too op. Old age? Come on, kakashi would have died way earlier if life in konoha was that short. So, if naruto really he’s dead, my only possible explanation is that kishimoto and/or anyone else who’s working on this project have just solemnly lost it. I already thougt that the ending of the original was a bunch of bullshit, and if this is the preview of the sequel, you can be sure I’ll never read it. Hope japan starts to realize that writing manga the way hollywood makes film nowdays isn’t going to work.

    Naruto is just so OP, he even fuck gedou Madara and Kaguya up and who the hell is Kawa.. Kawi or wutever his name idk idc. If Naruto really does die in this new manga series then the writer (not Kishi, i’ve heard it’s his assistance) better prepare for great ninja war 5.

    1. You got me, If MY Naruto dies fighting a stupid fucking brat like Kawaki or whatever his name is, I will definitelystop watching or reading the Naruto or Boruto series.
      Naruto can’t die here’s why:
      He has 3 Kekkei genkais
      has 11 chackra releases
      has more than 100 Sannin or superior Level jutsus
      has taijutsu, ninjutsu, senjutsu, etc
      is the greatest literally the greatest shinobi that ever existed
      has the chackra of the Sage of Six Paths ( Hahoromo )
      has the complete Kurama and it’s chackra
      has the chackra of the other tailed beastsunade ( shukaku.Matatabi,Isobu,Son Goku, Kokuo, Saiken,Giuky)
      has the ability to heal instantly
      can live and survive after a bijuu atack
      Has sakura with thehundred healings
      has Sasuke with his rinnegan
      has Hinata with all the power of Hamura
      has Kakashi
      has shikamaru and his shadow manipulation
      has all the villagers willing to give their lives to protect him
      has the rest oh konoha 12 (except for Neji)
      Has the kage

      so how on earth can Naruto die, and if he dies Kishimoto would lose millions of Money and he would lose fans, I mean no one would read the Boruto series…. so I truly believe that our legendary hero, Naruto Uzumaki, will not die… or that is what I and others expect not to happen… So guys after all this I have written prove me wrong and tell me that Naruto diesr.

  10. I think naruto was forced to extract his tailed beast and place it in baruto making the vessel (naruto) garentied death excluding my fan faourite gara ughh which makes sense considering the seal can be performed by an uzumaki. Nine tails would obey narutos wishes and might hate baruto the same way he did nauto in the start giving die hard fans the slow power trust between the two. Also I think his little sister is defo not dead the power she displayed in the baruto the movie is insane just to think about. I re watched the fight between negi and naruto during the exams when naruto claims to abolish the hyuga clan branch system when he becomes hokage so it’s likely along the way a powerful byakugan user died in the clan an donated it to his first son in simaler sercamstances as obito with the silver fangs son kakashi. Off topic anyone finding it weird kawaki looks like he could be another one of narutos sons hidden away, I mean who else has natural blond hair in the whole of the manga which gets me thinking the beast could have been stolen by this kawaki character making him the new op like just thinking about when the animation is relised and Kurama now trying to be good anews forced to bring back the side of him that just wanted to destroy the leaf and everyone in it, we all remember how narutos dad died maybe someone wants that again

  12. With the humongous clusterfuck that was the naruto ending and the predictable epilogue that happened along with the fail of a series called boruto, its no wonder kishimoto or whoever is writing boruto would take such a step to bring back the fans to watch/read the series. Naruto is the strongest along with sasuke. So him getting killed by some kid is stupid AF. Its just a ploy to bring back the fans to continue the series again. Due to bad ending most of the die hard fans have left the series. Somewhere down the line naruto will be back.

  14. This series is going so stupid. First of all they shouldn’t have been making boruto series after all. This is a worst one. Naruto was a real and far far better. And next comes to the question of his dying then they should listen carefully how the hell even they can think of killing naruto. This is so stupid. He is a real hero. He resembles many of us and has become an idle and a hero. They should better kill boruto and make naruto more powerful and aggresive. I mean c’on guys wtf is going on i hate the whole boruto series why the hell they even planned for making it. They should continue with the main hero i.e naruto. He had gone through so many things and suffered a lot he has canged the whole world. From begening to now he has motivated everyone and he is a true hero. How can they end up that love for just continuing their manga or show by killing him or removing him from the main character for making a new series i.e boruto i.e of his own kid, this is worst. Naruto is what everyone love and wants they should not be playing with our emotions. They should continue with the main aim i.e naruto. They should close down the boruto series.
    I hate more things like boruto succeding naruto this is crazy how can they ever thing of making boruto more powerful than naruto i cannot ever think this even in my dreams. Naruto came upto this lever all those years by training becoming more than what he was before with carring all those pain that inspires up but when it comes to boruto then he is nothing in front of his father and can never be and if they make boruto more powerful than naruto than it would not be right because the main hero was is and always will be only naruto not anyone else.
    At last i only want to say that they should end up the boruto manga or series and only continue with naruto because naruto make us fell special. They should plan for a death of boruto and by this naruto would become mad so he bacomes more powerful and take rage.
    Naruto will always be Naruto no one can take his place or can surpass him i repeat no one. Boruto is nothing.
    Hope this message can reach to each and every naruto true fans and lover like me.

  18. This is utter BS!!! Just some A**hole trying to make a name of himself of the back of our beloved Naruto… If they kill him off so they can build up Boruto, I’ll never mention Naruto again, I will turn my back on the 15yrs I spent following it, I will not introduce the show to anyone ( I have always thought that I would share this show with my kids in the future even grandkids) but that won’t be happening, why would I recommend a show that makes you grow with the characters, believe in them, experience life’s journey just so they can be horribly disappointed and heartbroken that the heroes of the show are killed off just some wanker can make a buck out of continuing the series.

    You wanna continue the series with Boruto .. then travel, take him somewhere far away, let him pave his own path somewhere else.. Makes sense that he may consider travelling somewhere to get out from under his parents shadow. If they did it this way, I would more than likely give it a go..

  23. Though I have an insecure theory too of he might’ve died if he did (which I would hate to be true). Here’s what I think couldve happened:
    Remember what they said about kurama healing maruto so fast when they weren’t friends? That his LIFE SPAN gets slightly shortened. And kurama did this very often by the way. also the first time he ise rasen-shuriken tsunade said that it affected his life span too.
    So this might lead to later in life effects, like weakening. But I doubt this is true since he has the sage of six paths power of healing so my theory dies redulting that Naruto CAN’T be dead

  24. I believe that Naruto wasn’t killed or to be pushed to make other think naruto is dead by Kawaki.The reason why konaha is destroyed may be because of an organisation like akatsuki.(Shin uchiha or kawaki as a leader).Also Mitsuki may not be orochimarus son because orochimaru can change his age and his look.Also Mitsuki can be spy of orochimaru or orochimaru and it can also be orochimarus son too.Mitsuki will maybe be evil and help the evil organization.Boruto vs mitsuki maybe.Like sasuke Boruto wants to get revenge from his parents and maybe sisters death.And Boruto may get his byakugan from Himawari,his grandfather and also from The Neji who died.In the manga also anime it says that neji losed his eyes for a new hope and gived his hope for a new future.(Maybe neji gived his byakugan to hinata after he get injured and died.)These are my theories.Also i think The destruction of konaha is made from someone who we know closely.(Possibly A good looking man or an undead enemy)(I think of Hidan who is unkilleable.And Shisui.Also There are theories about the people who was in the picture of Jiraiya’s team.(The team that minato was in(but as a student(genin).

However, Naruto can help make his son stronger. He is hokage for a reason. The death of Naruto would upset so many fans, because probably most Boruto fans were Naruto fans first.
