Chapter 47 recap
The events from chapter 47 left fans clamoring for more. It was an intense and action-packed chapter that involves a lot of Isshiki Ohtsutsuki.
It kicked off with Isshiki being attacked by Koji with a natural flame. Isshiki then realizes that Jigen’s body has reached its limits. Jigen surprisingly died with Koji’s attack.
But it was not the end yet. It was only the first step in continuing the battle with Isshiki Otsutsuki. It was necessary for Jigen to die to bring out Isshiki’s true form.
Isshiki has been grooming Kawaki as a host because of Jigen’s weaker body. And even after Jigen burned to death, Isshiki was still inside the body. It only activated the Karma seal program.
In the end, Isshiki destroyed Koji’s mask. Naruto is bothered by Koji’s fate.
Chapter 48 spoilers
At the moment, there are no official spoilers for chapter 48 yet. Fans have been asked to be patient as it has only been a week since the release of chapter 47.
Predictions and discussions have been welcomed though. The question is who will win between Koji and Isshiki?
Isshiki has become more powerful and even predicted Koji’s death. But there’s still a chance that Koji will win. Naruto is even subconsciously rooting for him.
But if Koji will be defeated, it will most likely lead to Isshiki meeting Kawaki. He will need to find him though since Karma has been erased from Kawaki and teleportation is not possible.
Stay tuned for more updates on Boruto chapter 48.
