Boruto: Naruto Next Generations altered its ending theme from the newest episode in memorium of Kurama following the character’s tragic passing! The anime has reached the climax of the Otsutsuki Awakening phase of the Kawaki saga, and thus has reached the final moments of the fight against Isshiki Otsutsuki. As teased by the opening moments of the fight as fans saw just how strong this newest Otsutsuki really was, Naruto, Boruto, and Sasuke were definitely not going to come out of the fight unscathed. But the newest episode of the series revealed just how much the cost of this fight truly was.
In order to stand a chance against Isshiki, Naruto and Kurama needed to push beyond their limits and use a new form that Kurama had revealed was going to burn through their chakra at the cost of their time together. Naruto had agreed assuming that it was his own life he was burning away in the process, but it’s revealed in the newest episode that it was actually Kurama’s chakra that had been completely faded. This also meant that he and Naruto had to say goodbye to one another as he passed on with no longer any chakra allowing him to keep his form together. To memorialize Naruto and Kurama’s bond, the ending theme had been adjusted to reveal quite the emotional flashback of their time together. Check it out below:
