Boruto Two Blue Vortex Chapter 5 is finally here and is spectacular. The chapter answers readers’ questions about Chapter 4 while also displaying how Konoha feels about the situation with Boruto. Moreover, you won’t want to miss important information about the divine trees that the chapter reveals. But first, let’s talk about Chapter 4.
In the previous chapter, Boruto uses the Flying Raijin Jutsu to confront Code, only to find the Ten-Tails missing. They encounter humanoid Divine Trees, evolved from Claw Grimes, including one resembling Sasuke. Amidst the battle with these entities, Boruto and Code’s fight ends inconclusively, and Boruto faces a new challenge with these self-aware trees. The chapter concludes with the revelation that Sasuke has been transformed into a Divine Tree, adding complexity to Boruto’s mission. After this chapter, we are left with a world on the cusp of destruction.
Boruto Two Blue Vortex Chapter 5 – Flashbacks and Emotional Ties
Boruto Two Blue Vortex Chapter 5 opens with a flashback, showcasing Sasuke training Boruto in what is referred to as the “Uchiha Style”. As a long-time Naruto fan, I have never heard of this fighting style. I hope that we can get a glimpse of this fighting technique in future Boruto battles. Seeing Boruto switch between the Uchiha Style and his own will make for engaging battles. Boruto is a mixture of Sasuke and Naruto in his own way, as he even has his own Rasengan and Chidori.
Moving on, Sasuke reminds Boruto that he still has much to improve on despite his natural talent. Additionally, he still believes something fishy is happening in the ninja world, with Sarada begging him to help Boruto. For this reason, he is training Boruto. She knows something that Sasuke does not, and that’s the important thing. The narrative swiftly moves forward, shockingly showing Sasuke’s defeat by Code. His last message to Boruto is to continue training and protecting Sarada, symbolically passing the torch.
This transition seamlessly leads us to the present, with Boruto seriously preparing for what lies ahead. I love the attention to detail when Boruto keeps referring to Sasuke as “Old Man Sasuke” before correcting himself to “Master”. It shows Boruto’s love for Sasuke but also reminds him that this version of Sasuke does not know Boruto closely. It’s a pretty grim situation, but Boruto is trying his best.
The Divine Trees’ Dilemma
The story then shifts to Konohamaru and others discovering Moegi transformed into a tree by a Claw Grime. This part highlights Konohamaru’s evolution from a playful character to a mature, determined leader, vowing to restore Moegi. Like Sasuke, Moegi was also transformed into a humanoid Divine Tree. The plot thickens as we learn about the humanoid Divine Trees, each possessing an independent consciousness and desires linked to their human counterparts. The Divine Trees face a dilemma: they aim to consume Boruto and Kawaki for their final form, but also seek to achieve their unique personal objectives.
For example, Moegi’s divine tree desires to eat Konohamaru, a close friend of Moegi. Sasuke’s divine tree wants to devour Sarada, Sasuke’s daughter. Finally, Bug’s tree hungers Eida, who is someone Bug hates. Interestingly, most of the divine trees want to eat someone who has some close connection to their human counterparts. However, the main humanoid divine tree wants to eat Naruto. He resembles Isshiki a lot, so he may be his divine tree. After all, Naruto did defeat him.
Amado’s Revelations and Village Intrigue
The focus then shifts to Amado and Kakei, where Amado’s realization about Kawaki’s modifications and his own altered memory add a thrilling twist. Amado says he remembers embedding his daughter’s data in Boruto’s karma and having him escape Kara’s clutches. However, he notices that Kawaki’s body is a scientific ninja tool and that seemingly no one knows who modified him. He also sees that his daughter’s data is in Kawaki’s palm. Amado quickly realizes something is seriously wrong, and I’m curious to see his next step. Apparently, Sai and Shikamaru were listening in on Amado’s conversation with Kakei. I like that this indicates the growing concerns among Konoha’s leadership about the unfolding event.
Later, Kakei tells Sarada about the situation with Amado. The case with Amado reminds Sarada about her request to Sasuke. She wanted Sasuke to help Boruto despite how confusing the situation may be for him. Suddenly, Boruto appears behind them, saying that Sasuke risked his life to save Boruto’s life, all while doubting his own memory. Sasuke’s sacrifices add emotional depth, culminating in a heartfelt reunion between Boruto and Sarada.
