Boruto is back, and he’s shaking up the world of shōnen manga in a big way. The new Boruto: Two Blue Vortex Part 2 manga is here, and it’s giving us a fresh look at our main character, Boruto Uzumaki. After a hiatus to cook up the next arc, Boruto is back, and he’s undergone some significant changes.
In the latest chapter, we see the return of Code, who’s causing trouble in Konoha to lure Boruto out. However, things don’t quite go as planned when Code threatens Sarada and gets ambushed. But here comes Boruto, making a grand entrance that’s sure to catch your eye. He’s decked out in a slick black jacket, cape, pants, and he’s wielding a katana. It’s clear that he’s evolved from the whiny son of the Hokage we knew in Part 1.
Boruto’s life used to be pretty cushy compared to his father, Naruto, and his mentor, Sasuke. But that all changed when he was falsely accused of killing his famous father, making him the most wanted man in the Land of Fire. This ordeal has transformed him from the typical optimistic shōnen hero into something much more intriguing and original. He’s now a character despised by the world for a crime he didn’t commit, and it’s left a powerful mark on him.
Do you know that a captivating new promotional video for the highly anticipated Frieren anime has just been released? It’s crammed with exciting details. This anime is anticipated to be a delight for fantasy fans:
Take a look at his new character design, and you’ll see what I mean. He’s got this cold, intense stare, a scar, and those tired eyes that tell a story of their own. This is a Boruto we haven’t seen before, and it’s a departure from the upbeat and energetic style we were used to in Part 1.
In most shōnen series, the “dark and broody” character trope is usually reserved for sidekicks like Vegeta or Sasuke. They’re the ones with a chip on their shoulder or a dark past that shapes their outlook on life, contrasting with the ever-optimistic protagonist. But in this case, Boruto has taken on that mantle, and it’s a refreshing twist.
We rarely get to see what happens to a hero when they’re suddenly hated by the world and how that changes them over time. The depths of Boruto’s transformation are still to be explored in future chapters, but his brooding appearance and cocky entrance give us a glimpse of what’s to come. It’s a departure from the shadow of his famous father, Naruto, and it’s setting the stage for an original and exciting shōnen protagonist.
With Kawaki, Konoha, and Code all on his tail, it won’t be long before Boruto shows everyone, including us readers, just how much he’s evolved over the past three years and what kind of shōnen hero he’s become. So, if you’re eager to see this transformation unfold, be sure to check out Boruto: Two Blue Vortex on the Shonen Jump App and Viz Media.
