Boruto Chapter 38 saw Naruto and Sasuke’s hopeless fight against Jigen continue. After two chapters full of action, we finally saw the fight conclude, and it didn’t end in Naruto Uzumaki’s favor. Naruto lost badly against Jigen, while Sasuke had to escape on Naruto’s orders. As a result, Sasuke made it back to Konohagakure, while Naruto was sealed shut in a different dimension.
With that, we’ll now be shifting focus to the next chapter of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, and we believe that just like the previous ones, it’ll be full of great action all around. Let’s discuss Boruto Chapter 39 now, shall we?
Boruto Chapter 39 – What We Know
Before we begin, please note this post may contain official spoilers from the next chapter of the manga. If being spoiled is not for you, we suggest that you stop reading the post here. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started. Also, note that we did not create the spoilers or leak them. They’re available all over the internet.
We believe that Boruto Chapter 39 will focus primarily on two things. The first one will be Sasuke Uchiha and he’ll be delivering the report of what happened at Konohagakure to everyone. As this goes down, Jigen will likely attack Konohagakure, and he’ll take Kawaki with him. Shortly after, we’ll probably see Sasuke and the other leaf jonin form a retrieval squad and head after Jigen. The goal of the retrieval squad will be to save Naruto Uzumaki, and get a hold of Kawaki once again before Otsutsuki Isshiki transfers himself into the new vessel.
Of course, this is merely a prediction, but we think that events similar to these will definitely happen very soon in the manga. We’re also looking forward to Naruto being finally freed from his seal, but that might take a while.
Boruto Chapter 39 will drop in this month’s issue of the V-Jump magazine. The update for it should be around 19 October 2019.
