Boruto Two Blue Vortex chapter 1 ended with a tense confrontation between Boruto Uzumaki and Code, and Boruto alluded to the true horrors of the Ten Tails. In Boruto Two Blue Vortex, it’s clear that Boruto is not the same young boy from Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, and he appears to be extremely knowledgeable and determined. The first chapter exceeded my expectations, and Boruto Two Blue Vortex Chapter 2 definitely has a lot to offer.
The previous chapter revealed that Sarada, Sumire, and Himawari still believe in Boruto’s innocence following the activation of Eida’s Omnipotence ability. After nearly three years, Eida still doesn’t know much about the ability. However, she revealed that the Omnipotence ability is derived from the Otsutsuki clan, and the activation was linked deeply to Kawaki’s feelings. Shortly after this revelation, Boruto and Code both make their appearance in the Hidden Leaf Village.
Boruto Two Blue Vortex Chapter 2: A New Boruto
Boruto takes a surprisingly cold, calculated approach in his return, but he’s obvious that he cares about Sarada and the rest of the village. He asks Code to withdraw his minions from the Hidden Leaf Village before he kills them and him in in quick succession. Code is annoyed by Boruto’s threat due to their past encounters, but he continues to pay close attention to him. Boruto entrusts Sarada with helping innocent people get away safely as Code’s forces attempt to leave the village in ruins.
Meanwhile, Shikadai, Cho-Cho, and the rest of Boruto’s friends fight off Code’s minions, who are seemingly empowered by a Rinnegan eye. The group is being overpowered by the minions, but Kawaki swiftly comes to the rescue. Kawaki is irritated by Himawari’s “big bro” remark, but he’s eager to help his friends all the same. Kawaki is partly responsible for their memories being altered, and it seems like he greatly understands the weight behind that. Unfortunately, the minions have a regenerative ability, and they’re able to clone themselves similarly to White Zetsu from Shippuden.
The Ten Tails and the Hidden Rasengan
Boruto handles Code’s minions without breaking a sweat, however. His sword prowess is incredible, allowing him to slice through multiple enemies with ease. Boruto reiterates that Code does not know the true horrors of the Ten Tails, so it seems that he did his research about the past from Sasuke. The chapter quickly turns to Sarada, who may be seen going through minions with the Chidori technique. She’s caught off-guard by an enemy, but a fellow Leaf ninja steps in the way. However, this Leaf ninja unknowingly signed a death warrant as the minion coalesces with his body, turning him into an eerie and familiar tree—The Divine Tree.
Boruto Two Blue Vortex chapter 2 ends with one last discussion between Boruto and Code. Code is aware of the dangers of Ten Tails and its minions—monsters that devour people until it runs into an Otsutsuki. Boruto warns Code that these monsters are different after their enhancements and hopes Code will scrap the Ten Tails while he still has control of them. According to Boruto, Ten Tails is a threat that could lead the world to “the worst possible future for everyone.” Code already knows this since his current plans involve whatever lies beyond that worst possible future, which turns out to be the planet’s death. Boruto warns Code once last time, noting that it’s really easy to kill him. Code isn’t buying it, so Boruto decides to unleash his new Rasengan Uzuhiko technique to end the chapter.
Boruto Two Blue Vortex Chapter 2 Delivers in Spades
Chapter 2 was a thrilling ride that did not let up from the first panel to the very last. Boruto’s growth from Part 1 to Part 2 is on full display, and it’s a stark contrast from Naruto’s reintroduction in Shippuden. Clearly, Boruto has adopted some of Sasuke’s stoic traits, so I really want to see what he’s learned while under the wing of the Uchiha. His sword skills highlight precision and quick decision making, which Part 1 Boruto did not excel at. Additionally, it was great to see Boruto’s friends in combat again, and Sarada is quickly approaching Jonin-level.
Boruto and Code’s face-off was intriguing to say the least in Boruto Two Blue Vortex Chapter 2. The titular protagonist has a lot of tricks up his sleeves, including the Uzuhiko technique. Uzuhiko appears to be ultra proficient version of Rasengan, so Boruto appears to have mastered it throughout his entire body. If true, then this mastery potentially places Boruto on Hokage levels of power at a really young age. He’s following in the footsteps of his father in some regards, but he has to potential to quickly surpass him before reaching his prime.
When Does the Next Chapter Release?
Boruto Two Blue Vortex chapter 3 releases on October 19 at 11:00 a.m. EDT / October 20 at 12:00 a.m. JST. The new manga chapter will be available through VIZ Media and Manga Plus in English. Spoilers and leaks will likely be going around in the days leading up to the chapter’s release, so that’s something to be aware of soon.
Unfortunately, the Boruto anime isn’t back yet, and the Naruto 20th anniversary anime was delayed earlier this month. Four episodes of the Naruto 20th anniversary anime are planned by Shueisha and Studio Pierrot in a four-week run. Since the Boruto Two Blue Vortex manga series just begun, fans will need to wait until more chapters are out before the anime adaptation comes. Rest assured, Boruto’s Uzuhiko will be animated someday soon.
