Naruto is one of the most popular anime series of all time in history. The series has been going on for quite a while now. In Naruto, Sasuke was always a character that went against society’s norms. He was never afraid to do what he thought was right, even if it meant going against his friends. And this is why he had such an impact on Boruto, who admires him for his fearlessness and strength.
In Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, it seems that Sasuke will die in this series. This is based on a recent episode where Sasuke was seen trying to kill himself with a sword and Boruto tried to stop him but failed.
There are a number of factors that can play into Sasuke’s death. The first factor is the power of the Sharingan. The Sharingan has been shown to be able to predict death, so it can be assumed that it will show him his own death.
Sasuke has been at odds with Boruto for quite some time. There are three possibilities for his fate in the new show. First, If Sasuke dies Toneri will resurrect him again. Second, he could return to be stronger and more powerful like he used to be and makes good on his promise to kill Boruto, Third should he return, he would actually sacrifice himself in order to make amends with Boruto.
He feels remorse for what he did in the past and he wants to repay Naruto. And this extends in the series until Boruto when Sasuke is given a message from Naruto’s younger self who told him about how there are two paths a shinobi can take – Hope or Revenge. This implies that in Naruto’s world, Genin always replace high Jounin levels like Sasuke which leaves room for him to return without killing him off.
The latest chapter of Boruto has Sasuke in a coma, and the next chapter of Naruto has Sasuke coming out of the coma. So it’s unclear if Sasuke will die in Boruto or not. The question that is on everyone’s mind. The answer to this question is not that simple.
There is no hardcore evidence that Sasuke will die in Boruto manga so far.
As the anticipated topic becomes ever more elusive and puzzling, the prediction just isn’t conclusive with only one word: will Sasuke die in boruto?
Why might Sasuke’s death be good to Boruto? It could be a matter of need.
As much as I hate to admit it because he’s my favorite character, Sasuke’s death might be good for the series in a number of ways, allowing for the development/progression of a number of characters and so on.
Boruto himself is among those characters.
While they may appear to be vastly different at first glance, Boruto and Naruto unironically share a number of similarities. And what better way for Boruto to progress/develop as a character than for the authors to treat him the same way they treated Naruto?
Yes. By sacrificing his mentor/master, he may be able to progress as a character which may seem trite and typical like shown in other anime/manga but it does serve as a technique to develop a character, such as making them rethink their views, change their ideology/attitude and so on.
Apart from that, another individual who might gain from Sasuke’s death is Sarada herself, for obvious reasons. It’s essentially a necessity for her to mature as a character, both psychologically and physically, I suppose.
Sarada and Mitsuki’s conversation in the most recent chapter, their entire conversation revolves around them feeling untrustworthy, not powerful enough to aid Boruto, and how they need to improve their strength, among other things.
The reason this is so crucial is that a character like Sarada has a lot of maturing to do, both emotionally and physically. When it comes to Boruto, Kawaki, or even Mitsuki, they already have their main source of power, which is likely what made them so powerful in the first place (Karma and Sage Mode).
And there’s no better way for her to gain it unless she’s gone through an emotional trauma, which may result in her getting some crazy ability that would allow her to compete with her rivals in the long run.
