Boruto Chapter 39 came out recently, and once again it didn’t disappoint the fans. Every month, we are treated to a solid Boruto chapter, and the story just keeps on getting better. With more progress, we also see more revelations being made and the previous chapter gave us a lot of information on the Otsutsuki clan in particular. Ever since we found out that Jigen is the vessel of Otsutsuki Isshiki, it wasn’t much of a surprise to see that he knows a lot about the clan. Isshiki was Kaguya’s partner, and for some reason, he wasn’t around back when she took over earth.
Boruto Explains Otsutsuki Mystery
Before we discuss the secret of the Otsutsuki clan, please know that this post will contain official spoilers from the previous 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.
In Boruto Chapter 39, we saw that Isshiki is more fixated on keeping his immortality an finding the perfect vessel. Right now, Isshiki’s vessel is Jigen. But, there not a perfect compatibility between the two. Kawaki, on the other hand, is perfectly compatible with Isshiki and according to Isshiki himself, he’s going to become a full fledged Otsutsuki with time. This implies that whoever has the Karma passed onto them will, ultimately, turn into an Otsutsuki to serve as the vessel of the one they got it from.
It is possible that the entire Otsutsuki clan is just a a bunch of people passing down their Karma from one generation to another, and maintaining their youth in the process. This raises the question of who the first Otsutsuki was, and where the first Karma came from, but for now, we won’t get any answers to that.
