Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 218: Spoilers and What to Expect?

Last weekend in Boruto Episode 217, we saw Naruto beating Isshiki to death and driving his life from 20 hours to merely 5 minutes.

But, by the end, Isshiki was able to detect that Naruto shared his chakra with Kawaki, and using the same link, he teleported Kawaki to the same dimension. Will Isshiki plant the Karma on Kawaki? 

Episode 218 is titled the “Partner,” which suggests we can witness some exciting development. Boruto being badly beaten and cannot move but wants to help Kawaki and Naruto, but how will he do it? Will he use Momoshiki Otsusuki’s powers and Partner with him to defeat Isshiki and save everyone’s life?

This is just a possibility of what can happen, but it’s not far from what the title suggests. Also, in the last episode, we saw Naruto run out of Baryon Mode, which means that Naruto’s and Kurama’s lives are about to come to an end. Will Naruto die? Even if by any miracle Naruto survives, what will he be able to do without Kurama?  

Sasuke was also severely beaten up by Isshiki and is out of chakra and strength. Will he be able to fight Isshiki to buy time for Kawaki. For now, the only way to save Kawaki from again becoming the vessel for Isshiki is for Boruto to use Momoshiki’s powers. But if it happens, will it happen at a high cost?

Let us know in the comments below about what you think might happen next. The next episode, “Partner,” will be the turning point in this arc.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 217 Recap and What is Baryon Mode?

Boruto Episode 217 was one we have been waiting for for so long. We saw Naruto fight in Baryon Mode. Also, Kawaki into this alternate dimension by Isshiki as he sensed Naruto’s chakra being shared with Kawaki. Let’s come back to all the details about this fantastic episode after knowing more about Baryon Mode.

What is Baryon Mode?

Baryon Mode is the highest level of power mode that can be used by a Jinchuriki in exchange for his life. The Jinchuriki and the Tailed Beast will give up their life at a cost for the power of Baryon Mode.

The raw material for this power is the chakra of Jinchuriki and Tailed beast which we see when Kurama the nine tails tells Naruto As the raw material to create this energy my chakra and yours get consumed until one or both of our lives run out. Don’t make any unnecessary movements or think about anything. Those are the tricks to keep Baryon Mode going.”

Baryon Mode is power exchanged for life and thus it significantly reduces the life of the person being attacked as well. Isshiki Otsusuki stated “My life span is shrinking dramatically. I should’ve had more than 20 hours left. But now, somehow…I’ve got less than half an hour.”

Later he realizes that the no of punches he receives from Naruto matters and not the power of each attack as each attack drastically drives life out of him. So this is the ultimate power of Baryon Mode, which comes at the cost of life itself and can be utilized when someone is ready to sacrifice themselves for the sake of others and the whole world, just like the power of the 8th inner gate, The Gate of Death.

Getting back to Boruto Episode 217, it was titled “Decision.” This is regarding Kawaki as what will he decide, to give his life up and save Naruto or to prevent Karma from being implanted in his body by not showing up to Isshiki, who will kill Naruto.

Episode 217 begins with Naruto in Baryon Mode fighting Isshiki Otsusuki. The Baryon Mode overpowered Isshiki’s powers, and he was no match for Naruto. Naruto single-handed defeated Isshiki and brought him to the brink of death by reducing his life span from a whole day to mere 5 minutes.

Naruto could counter Isshiki’s superfast black chakra control rods without even flinching and broke them to pieces. He also attained more speed, adding to his original super speed by which he attacked Isshiki. Their speed was too much to have tracked even using the Sharingan as Sasuke stated it himself. 

Isshiki would have been dead if not for Naruto, who runs out of Baryon Mode. Isshiki realizes that this power came at the cost of Naruto’s own life and attacked him. He also realized that his life would also end soon. While battling Naruto, he realized that Naruto shared his chakra with Kawaki so that he could use his right arm.

Using the same chakra link, Isshiki teleported and brought Kawaki to his dimension. Now he attacked Kawaki to take control of him and plant the Karma on him. Sasuke using his rinnegan swapped place with Kawaki and using some metallic dust as a smokescreen which allowed Kawaki to escape. The metallic dust obstructed the vision of Byakugan, and thus Kawaki was able to run and hide away from Isshiki.

Isshiki, having only a few minutes of life left, played a dirty trick to lure Kawaki out. He attacked Naruto and told Kawaki that if he does not come out Isshiki would rip Naruto’s body apart and kill him. Kawaki, shocked by it, has flashback memories about Jigen, who tortured him and made him miserable.

Kawaki realizes that Naruto is the only one who gave him life. He also idolizes him and cannot allow him to die. To save his life, Kawaki turns back to Isshiki. Will Isshiki be able to plant Karma in Kawaki again, and all these efforts will go to waste? Or some way, they will defeat Isshiki and save everyone along as well.
