What spoilers have been revealed for Boruto Chapter 56?
No major spoilers for Boruto Chapter 56 have been revealed yet, but based on V-Jump promo released on March 19, Code, the villainous member of Kara, will show up big time. Isshiki is dead, so Code has a vendetta to settle against those who have hurt his god.
At the end of Chapter 55, Isshiki reveals that his legacy dwells within Code in the form of pure power. Code will inherit the Ohtsutsuki's will, and Isshiki vows that he cannot let Ohtsuttsuki's will be destroyed. The Kara member asks how he can help to carry out the will, and Isshiki tells him to watch over Boruto and Kawai. Code learns that they must consecreate one of them to Ten-Tails and cultivate Divine Tree. Isshiki went on to say that they will get the Chakra Fruit that the Divine Tree will procure. After they acquire the Chakra Fruit, Code must eat it to upgrade himself to become the new Ohtsutsuki. In his new Ohtsutsuki form, he will devour all the planets and become a god.
Code discovers the list of traitors he must destroy: Amado, Uzumaki Boruto, Uchiha Sasuka, and Uzumaki Naruto.
Chapter 56 will most likely feature Code making a major move to reach his goal, and take down Boruto and his allies. However, we still don't know if he will pick up a fight against them. Considering that the heroes of Konoha just defeated the powerful Isshiki in the previous chapter, fans are wondering if they will have the chance to rest before fighting Code.
We will update this page as more plot details are revealed prior to the latest chapter's release.
