Warning: SPOILERS for chapter #80 of BorutoborutoAccording to the series’ biggest villain, the big turning point that completely changed the series was a retcon in the series that would last forever. After Kawaki used Eida’s omnipotent power to change reality and make people believe that he was the son of the Hokage, and Boruto was an outsider who betrayed Konoha, fans are expecting him to be. Hero will be able to fix things in the future, but according to Momoshiki Otsutsuki this will never be possible.
In chapter #80 of Boruto, the series ends the first part on a cliff before taking a break for several months. Unexpectedly, Eida’s mysterious power is not the ability to make people fall in love with her, but something much greater, an Otsutsuki shinjitsu (divine technique) known as the Almighty, that can Literally rewrite reality. After Kawaki harnesses this power to reverse his and Boruto’s roles, the protagonist flees with Sasuke to become stronger and find a way to save everyone. However, according to Momoshiki, even if Boruto kills Eida, the effects of the Almighty are now permanent and irreversible.
Momoshiki tells Boruto that he cannot reverse Eida’s omnipotence
This is actually a surprising twist for the series. Usually, when something big happens in a story (not only in manga but also in western comics), the heroes always find a way to bring things back to normal. If Momoshiki were to be believed, this would not have happened, and Boruto, in the eyes of the world, would always be the one who killed the Seventh Hokage, while Kawaki would be Konoha’s hero, when in truth, he is the one who killed the Seventh Hokage. trapped Naruto. and Hinata in another dimension. Whatever Boruto will do, even if he somehow manages to get rid of Momoshiki, Eida and Kawaki, he will always be the bad guy in everyone’s eyes.
However, it was entirely possible that Momoshiki was lying. His aim in this chapter seems to be to make Boruto despair, weakening him enough to take over his body once and for all. This may be part of his ploy, and there is indeed a way to circumvent the Almighty technique. The key may be Sarada Uchiha’s Mangekyo Sharingan, which makes her immune to the spell. A simpler alternative would be for Kawaki or Eida to just reverse engineer, but they have no reason to do that. However, Boruto stated that he didn’t want to kill Kawaki, but wanted to be strong enough to make him see the reason. This could be a prelude to Kawaki asking Eida to reverse his powers, after Boruto awakened him for some reason.
Hopefully the series won’t follow such an obvious route and instead prove that Boruto can indeed step out of Naruto’s shadow. The Omnipotent Twist, with Boruto and Kawaki swapping roles, was the first truly unexpected development for Naruto’s controversial sequel, and the idea that it can’t be reversed makes it even worse. better. borutoThe upcoming season 2 of the series will let fans know if Momoshiki is right and whether the series’ biggest initial twist is indeed permanent.
