The next chapter for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations promises a major threat coming to Konohagakure. As Naruto, Boruto, Kawaki, and the rest of the Leaf Village prepare for war, Code and his allies are on the move in the next chapter of Masashi Kishimoto’s popular shonen series.
The next Boruto chapter may also reveal Kawaki’s decision to unlock his powers with the help of Amado. And will we find out more about the unique abilities of Ada and Daemon that they’re not telling Code? How will Code use his claw marks against Boruto and his friends.
Here’s everything you need to know about Boruto Chapter 60.
Boruto Chapter 60 Recap: What happened in the previous chapter?
In Boruto Chapter 60, titled A Place to Belong, we learn more about how the unique ability of Code’s claw marks works: The villiain can intantaneously travel from one designated mark to another. Shikimaru, Sai, and Ibiki discuss his ability on the roof of the office, and Shikimaru wonders if Code can travel without using Space-Time Ninjutsu.
Code tests Daemon’s power with his claw marks, then explains how his ability works. Code can traverse across claw marks, and he can bring a person with him, but only one person at a time. However, when Code Asks Daemon to explain his attack-reflecting ability further, Ada tells Daemon, “You shouldn’t reveal your cards so readily.”
In the Chapter 59, it was revealed that Daemon has the ability to reflect attacks, but it looks like he and Ada are hiding something from Code. When Ada tells Daemon not to reveal eveything about their abilities, the villain comments, “Oh? You don’t trust me?”.
The latest chapter also gives a glimpse of what Amado is working on, and he assures Sumere that he has no intentions on turning against Konohagakure. In his lab, there appears to be a mysterious silhouette inside the body pod, and Sumere still looks worried.
There’s also a touching scene with Kawaki having dinner with the Uzumaki family that Hinata has prepared, and it looks like Code is considering to unlock his powers with the help of Amado but he still blames himself for all the mess Konohagakure was in.
What spoilers have been revealed for Boruto Chapter 61?
Update: Boruto Chapter 61 just came out on Aug. 18, and Kawaki manages to get pass Konoha’s surveillance system, but Boruto is able to detect his presence. Meanwhile, Eida is able to gather intel for Code, letting him know that Kawaki is on the move. Code uses his claw marks to travel closer to Kawaki while still having his mouth and ear on Eida’s claw-marked shoulder. Eida comments that Code’s ability is gross. Eida informs Code that Kawaki is outside the Leaf village, heading west, and Code has plans to “ask him directly” why.
The new chapter also shows Sasuke’s brief appearance, an interesting conversation between Amado and Shikimaru as well as an explanation about Konoha’s surveillance system. You can read a detailed recap of Chapter 61 here.

It looks like Kawaki will make a major decision, and will most likely talk to Amado about unlocking his powers.
Recently, there’s a potential leak for Boruto Chapter 61 showing that there are two other Ohtsutsuki who plan to destroy the planet, and while some people claim that it’s true, others are suggesting that this could be fake, so we’ll have to wait and see next week if this is actually a part of the chapter.
