Recapturing Boruto Chapter 48
Chapter 48 of “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” named “Time Limit” starts with Koji Kashin and Isshiki’s battle. Isshiki is much stronger now than he was as Jigen. But Kashin Koji keeps fighting although his attacks have no effect. Isshiki states that his body is too weak to handle his power and he can only stay alive for two or three days.
Isshiki reveals that Amado is using Konoha to kill him and Koji is just a pawn. Amado is given citizenship in Konoha. Amado reveals that Koji isn’t strong enough to beat Isshiki and so Naruto and Sasuke will have to do it. But he advises against it.
Amado informs that Kawaki is the only target and Isshiki will come for him to plant the seed. He will probably get past Naruto and Sasuke to come for Kawaki. So it is best to evacuate the village. Sai gets to it. Next, Kawaki has to be hidden somewhere with Naruto and Sasuke protecting him.
Later, Koji attacks again using Giant Flame Bombs. Koji is aware that Isshiki’s secret jutsu Sukunahikona is an ocular jutsu, and it only activates when sees the target.
Isshiki escapes using Secret jutsu, Daikokuten, and Koji is crushed under pillars. Isshiki plans to kill Amado too, as he betrayed them both. Later, Koji summons a frog and escapes.
Right after the fight, Isshiki immediately teleports to Konoha Village. As he arrives, Naruto is still having an argument with Boruto. Their argument is stopped when Naruto receives the news of an unknown chakra entering the Konoha.
Predictions for the upcoming chapters
The upcoming chapter might change Boruto forever. Some predictions hint that the manga won’t end well for Naruto and the others. Isshiki has finally overtaken Jigen’s body and floats over the Konoha village, eyeing to destroy it.
Naruto and Sasuke will fight Isshiki. But as we know the Otsutsuki is too powerful to be taken down. This just looks like Pain Invasion once more. But, the opponent is far stronger than Pain. This might be Sasuke and Naruto’s last battle somehow.
We might also see the entrance of other loyal members of Kara.
