Boruto Episode #217 Review: Strengths and Weakness of Naruto’s Baryon Mode

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations episode 217 was nothing less than sensational. Naruto most likely reached his final form and it was spectacular. The hokage can officially say at one point in his life he was the strongest character in the Naruto franchise after beating the life out of Isshiki Otsutsuki (literally).

Naruto Baryon mode has its perks and has its weaknesses. Some of the weaknesses is that it uses pretty much all of your life force for a certain amount of time. He managed to use it for half of the episode and it was one of the coolest 10-15 minutes of his life. The benefits of this mode is that every blow he dealt Isshiki really cut into his lifespan. Before this episode, Isshiki had about another 20 hours or so to put a karma mark on Kawaki. At the end of this episode, I believe he had 5 minutes or less to put the karma mark on Kawaki. Naruto Baryon mode is pretty much Kamikaze.

Isshiki also summoned Kawaki to this unknown planet after he used Naruto chakra to sense Kawaki. Naruto shares chakra with Kawaki in his right arm I believe. Kawaki pretty much goes into hiding in this episode. Sasuke used his Rinnegan to get Kawaki away from Isshiki after he caught him. This was the only time Isshiki got his hands on him during the whole episode. The rest of the episode was Kawaki running and flashbacks of him running away from Jigen when he was child. Then he started to get flashbacks with him and Naruto. One thing that was interesting though is the flashback he had with Naruto asking him to teach ninjutsu. I wouldn’t be surprised if Naruto taught him his signature shadow clone move. Anyway, the episode ends with Kawaki coming out of hiding because Isshiki threatened to end Naruto’s life.

What do you think will happen in next week’s episode?
