The upcoming “Boruto” Chapter 19 is expected to pick up the pace of the manga’s plot. After somehow teasing in the previous chapters that a confrontation between the secretive Kara and Konoha forces is imminent, fans were a bit disappointed when the previous installment, Chapter 18, veered away from the expected plot development.
Instead, Chapter 18 focused on Boruto and his team’s delivery of the high tech ninja tools to Katasuke’s laboratory. While at the facility, they were also tasked to test some of the laboratory’s experimental ninja tools. These include the flashy chakra blade that looks like a lightsaber, boots, and gloves that stick to walls like a gecko to make climbing easier, a tool that overwhelms an opponent’s senses making it ideal for diversion and that flying contraption that obviously needs more fine tuning as it crashed with Boruto on board.
Fortunately, though, the upcoming chapter of the “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” manga series should have more action in it. The previous installment ended with Naruto reluctantly handing a new mission to Boruto, Sarada, and Mitsuki. This time, they are tasked to rendezvous with Konohamaru’s last known location to investigate since he has gone MIA.
Previously, Konohamaru was sent to the crash site of an unidentified aircraft. Unknown to Konohamaru’s team, however, the craft actually belongs to the mysterious group known as Kara. It was supposed to carry a “vessel,” an important piece of Kara’s grand design. At the moment, it is still unknown what this vessel actually looks like.
Due to the importance of this “vessel’s” recovery, Kara’s inner group decided to send one of its outer members to deal with the matter. We know now the identity of this outer member and, in fact, Boruto already met the gentleman while traveling on a train. He is actually Ao, a former shinobi of the Hidden Mist.
One can only speculate that Konohamaru and his teammate must have encountered some problems during their investigation of the crash site which prevented them from contacting Naruto at HQ. This means that when Boruto and his team will eventually arrive at the location, they have to fight with this unknown hostile force to survive. There is a possibility that Ao or, at least, a collaboration of Ao as well as the occupants of the mysterious airship.
Since the modern ninja tools where somehow showcased in the previous chapter, there is a high probability that these will be put to use during the confrontation. One particular weapon that could come in handy is that flashy chakra blade, which Katasuke deems to be impractical at this stage since it uses up too much chakra.
Boruto Chapter 19 will be released sometime this month. Stay tuned for updates.
