Boruto Two Blue Vortex Preview
In Boruto Two Blue Vortex, Boruto deals with the consequences of Eida’s Omnipotence ability during Boruto: Naruto Next Generations chapter 79. The activation of Omnipotence caused everyone’s memories of Boruto to change, turning him into a target responsible for the death of Naruto Uzumaki, his father and the Seventh Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. Sasuke Uchiha appears to have been unaffected by Omnipotence due to his own visual prowess, so the two characters flee the village. Boruto’s tale in Two Blue Vortex continue years later.
Fans may also look forward to new episodes of the original Naruto anime to commemorate its anniversary this September. The Boruto anime is expected to return sometime after the new Naruto episodes air.
