Adapted from a manga series of the same name, Boruto is the spin-off/sequel of the long-running renowned shounen ‘Naruto’. Before it came out, the creator of ‘Naruto’, Masashi Kishimoto promised fans that it would be much better than its predecessor. To be honest, it still needs a lot of time to be on par with its predecessor. But, the series is showing tremendous progress with every Boruto Chapter. Not only with the storyline but also with the characters. And, maybe if everything turns out good, it might surpass Naturo.
Obviously, the original one will always have a special place in our hearts. But if you’re looking for something very similar to it, make sure you check this one out. With that said, let’s talk about the release date of Chapter 52. Scroll down to read about it. Also, while you’re at it also check out the official reading platform for Boruto. We have also provided a detailed recap of Chapter 51.
Boruto Chapter 52 is all set to be released on Friday,20th November 2020. We are expecting Boruto chapter 52 to be released at midnight JST on November 20th.
Detailed Recap of Boruto Chapter 51
Isshiki asks why Boruto thinks he can’t kill him. And, Boruto thinks he’s being obvious. Sasuke asks for an explanation. Boruto tells him what he learned about their plan from when he fought Boro. Sasuke links it to what Amado revealed about Isshiki’s intentions, and Boruto concludes he’s part of it, so Isshiki can’t afford to kill him.
In Konoha, Amado continues explaining Isshiki’s plan and reveals that for a Ten-Tails seedling to take root and grow into a God Tree, a living Otsutsuki must be fed to it. Isshiki muses on Boro having been defeated. Sasuke reveals they know of his plans, but Isshiki is indifferent, as he doesn’t think they have the power to stop him even if they have the knowledge. As Isshiki approaches, Boruto threatens to kill himself with a kunai to stop his plan. Amado explains the reason Ōtsutsuki invade in pairs is so that one becomes a sacrifice for a God Tree, and the other one watches over it until it bears a chakra fruit.
Katasuke questions how desirable the chakra fruit must be for the Ōtsutsuki to be willing to sacrifice themselves for it, but Kawaki reminds him that they have Kama, Amado adding that the sacrificial Ōtsutsuki generally prepares a vessel for resurrection ahead of time. Sumire asks if this was Isshiki’s and Kaguya’s plan. Amado believes so on Isshiki’s part, with Kaguya being the sacrifice as she was of a lower position in the clan, but she turned against him, so Isshiki would have had to carry on solo, sacrificing himself as he had no other Ōtsutsuki.
Sumire realizes Isshiki means to sacrifice Boruto. Amado praises her deduction skills. Isshiki is unimpressed by Boruto’s threat and shrinks out of sight. He shrinks Boruto’s kunai, and Sasuke tells him to run so they can buy enough time to run out how long Isshiki has left with Jigen’s body. Isshiki reappears and attacks Sasuke, causing Boruto to retaliate.
Isshiki then shrinks Boruto’s Rasengan and breaks his arm, being ok with hurting him even if he doesn’t intend to kill him. He kicks Boruto aside and since he said he’s ready to die, Isshiki explains he’ll be fed to the Ten-Tails. Amado explains that there exist variations in chakra fruits, and a powerful Ōtsutsuki created from a younger vessel will provide better sustenance to a God Tree than one from a spent vessel like Jigen, which will lead to a better chakra fruit.
Shikamaru wonders how that helps Boruto in defeating Isshiki. Kawaki angrily asks how much of the situation Amado has plotted, noting his calm disposition. Amado merely states that he makes the best choice available to him and that it’s important to be prepared to accept the consequences of that choice, just as everyone does. Amado wonders if Kawaki’s irritation stems from being powerless or grief over losing his Kāma.
Naruto can’t sense Isshiki, Sasuke, or Boruto, and Kurama believes that Isshiki’s cubes interfere with sensing. Kurama asks what Naruto’s plan is, but he doesn’t have a real one. Kurama has an idea that is only worth considering since Naruto is already expecting to die anyway, and it’s not a choice to make lightly. Isshiki finishes telling Boruto his plan. Naruto kicks him aside. Isshiki is willing to let him live if he reveals Kawaki’s location.
Naruto gives Kurama the go-ahead for the plan. Both Isshiki and Sasuke are impressed by Naruto’s chakra.
