Boruto fans were thrilled to finally see the return of their favorite characters in Boruto: Two Blue Vortex Chapter 81. But what about the upcoming Chapter 82? Well, there seems to be a bit of a mystery around its release date that’s got readers scratching their heads.
Let’s get to the bottom of this. Some are saying we have to wait just one more week for Chapter 82, while others are claiming we’ll need to be patient for a whole month. So, what’s the real deal?
According to the folks at Shueisha, the ones in charge, Boruto Chapter 82—also known as Boruto: Two Blue Vortex Chapter 2—will grace our screens on Wednesday, September 20, 2023. That means there’s going to be a gap of a full month between Chapter 81 and Chapter 82, which is a little different from the usual weekly rhythm we’re used to.
Now, for all the eager readers, the good news is that you can catch Boruto Chapter 82 for free on VIZ Media’s website and Manga Plus. No need to wait by the mailbox or head to the store!

Now, let’s clear up a little something for those who might be wondering. Boruto isn’t your typical weekly manga like its predecessor Naruto. Nope, it’s got a different rhythm—it’s a monthly publication. So, hang on tight, because you’ll have to wait a tad longer between chapters. But on the bright side, these monthly chapters usually pack around 40 to 50 pages each, so there’s plenty to sink your teeth into.
Why the change, you ask? Well, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations made a leap from Weekly Shonen Jump to V Jump, a monthly magazine that hones in on video game and card game-related manga. So, while the wait might be a smidge longer, we’re getting some meatier content.
Do you know that the popular anime series “Demon Slayer” is poised to get even larger and better with not one, but numerous anime film adaptations? A trustworthy source recently revealed that the captivating “Infinity Castle Arc” will be adapted for the big screen:
And speaking of content, let’s give you a quick rundown of what went down in Chapter 81. Sarada was locked in a heated debate with none other than Shikamaru, now the Eighth Hokage. The topic? Boruto’s innocence—or lack thereof. Sarada’s determined to clear his name, but Shikamaru’s got his doubts, given Boruto’s choice to bolt when things got tough.
Sarada’s got her work cut out for her as she tries to convince Shikamaru that Boruto deserves a fair shake. But Shikamaru’s a bit skeptical, given the villagers’ not-so-friendly feelings towards our blond hero. Sarada’s frustration grows, and she sets out to prove Boruto’s innocence Naruto-style, much to Shikamaru’s concern.
Jumping to a new scene, we find Kawaki in a new role: Naruto’s son and the town’s hero. He’s got his eyes on Naruto and Hinata, who are suspended in some kind of seal, totally knocked out.
Hold tight, because things get even juicier. Sarada and Sumire meet with a character named Eida, the mastermind behind a memory mix-up that’s got Boruto and Kawaki swapping identities in everyone’s minds. Eida’s got an impressive jutsu called Omnipotence, which has twisted the villagers’ memories. They now believe that Kawaki is Naruto’s son, and Boruto’s got a dark side that betrayed the village.
Kawaki and Mitsuki share a rooftop chat, and Mitsuki’s not exactly a fan of Boruto. He even threatens to take him out if he comes back. Kawaki’s on board with the idea but asks Mitsuki to cut the stalking out.
But hold on, the calm doesn’t last long. Chaos erupts as monsters wreak havoc in the village. Code’s in on the action too, targeting Sarada with a message for Boruto. Boruto doesn’t keep us waiting and swoops in with a dramatic entrance, ready to face off against Code. Kawaki senses Boruto’s presence and rushes back to the village, and the whole place is buzzing with excitement. Code, Kawaki, and Boruto are all set for a showdown.
So, there you have it! Chapter 82 is right around the corner, and it’s poised to pick up right where Chapter 81 left off. Brace yourselves for more action, drama, and unexpected twists as Boruto’s fate hangs in the balance.
In a nutshell: Boruto: Two Blue Vortex debuted with Chapter 81, and the next chapter, Chapter 82, is set to drop on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, giving us a month’s wait after Chapter 81’s release.
