To protect his boy and the people in his village, Naruto as Hokage takes on the responsibility of rooting out Isshiki's existence, even if it means his own life would be sacrificed.

Chapter 51 teases Naruto and transforms into one of his newly acquired forms, "Baryon Mode". Chapter 52 ended with Kawaki being thrown onto the battlefields while an unconscious Boruto appears to have channeled Otsutsuki.

This new baryon mode gave Naruto the upper hand in the fight against Isshiki and made him weak, but he quickly turned the tables by feeling Kawaki's right hand and calling him into play.

  • Why did Isshiki bring Kawaki into the fight?

Naruto felt his chakra subside and thought of asking Kawaki for help when Isshiki brought Kawaki onto the battlefield in front of them.

Isshiki recognized Kawaki's right hand as a power source and decided to cut it off in order to kill the "Hokage" Naruto.

Kawaki's prosthetic right hand was designed by Katasuke to direct abundant Naruto chakra to function.

Naruto, who was in a fight with Isshiki, was exhausting too much of his strength and Kawaki could feel that his hand could not function due to the loss of chakras.

Isshiki plans to take Kawaki hostage to defeat Naruto, who acts as the Hokage to take care of the lives of his people.

While Sasuke is speechless at how the whole situation has worsened; Boruto, previously passed out, opens his eyes in his Otsutsuki mode.

  • What is Boruto's Otsutsuki mode? And can it help defeating Isshiki?

We know that Boruto Otsutsuki blood runs through his veins and that he himself is obsessed with the powerful Momoshiki Otsutsuki. Momoshiki had previously given Boruto the power of karma when his life was in danger.

The same life threatening situation exists for Boruto and he appears to have channeled his inner Otsutsuki mode to fight Isshiki again.

Momoshiki Otsutsuki was a powerful being who possessed the ability of Byakugan (a powerful X-ray vision of perception) and Rinnegan to absorb and apply chakras.

The spirit of Momoshiki still lives in Boruto, having made Boruto a ship. He can control Boruto's body and control his powers according to his will.

This transformation can make Boruto a strong opponent against Isshiki and Boruto could save his father from sacrificing himself for their safety.

We are certainly concerned about Naruto as his powers are slowly eating away his life from within, while we also fear for Kawaki's safety in the hands of the villain Isshiki.

With that said, the next chapter is clearly going to be an adrenaline pumping and action packed journey.
