Boruto: Naruto Next Generations continues to show promise and Episode 217 breaks the internet as fans and viewers are thrilled to witness the exciting fight between Naruto and Isshiki Otsutsuki making the all-out brawl trend worldwide, and the Seventh Hokage surprised everyone in his new and dangerous form, Baryon Mode.
Fans and viewers cannot hide their excitement and joy watching Episode 217 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations as one of the highlights of the said run of the anime is the fight between Naruto and Isshiki Otsutsuki as it is not your typical battle with the Seventh Hokage finally using his new and deadly form, Baryon Mode, getting an advantage against Isshiki.
In the episode, when Naruto and Sasuke were cornered by Isshiki, it was Boruto who tried to bargain for death, however, he failed, and when there seems to be no other way, Naruto stepped up big time and made sure to reverse the situation.
On his Baryon Mode, Naruto mixes his chakra with that of Kurama's. While it is an all-powerful and new form of energy surprising everyone, it is a risky process considering that it could potentially drain Naruto's overall lifespan. Still, it proved to be useful since the Hokage was able to turn the table and have all the cards in their favor and against Isshiki.
The fight is far from any other typical battle in the anime series. Of all the brawls in the span of Boruto's more than 200 episodes, the fight choreography of this one is beyond others. At this point in the manga, the change in the scribe from Ukyo Kodachi to Masashi Kishimoto, the original Naruto creator, proved to be essential and useful as well, given that a drastic change in the story tone happened, and the anime went with it.
Here are some fan reactions to the fight:
