Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 66, titled Do-or-Die, just arrived today, January 20, and it's now available to read online for free. Fans of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto franchise have shared their reactions to the chapter's shocking "death".
Warning: Major spoilers from Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 66 ahead.
The new Boruto chapter features Borushiki (Momoshiki taking temporary control of Boruto's body) fighting Kawaki.Close to the end of the chapter, Boruto is struggling to take control of his body, and as he is kneeling on the ground, he says that there's a "last resort" option. Then Boruto clasps his hands together and make the serpent hand seal as Naruto screams out in horror. Naruto is able to touch his son again, but Boruto blasts him out of the way using Wind Release Gale Palm.
Kawaki says that Boruto has been preparing for this moment. As Boruto looks at Kawaki, he asks him to kill him while his consciousness is still suppressing Momoshiki.
Kawaki then pierces Boruto straight to the chest... "at least a meter of Kawaki's transformed arm has gone out the other side", which is now pouring blood. This is where the chapter ends. Although the chapter didn't confirm if Boruto actually died, the injuries were clearly severe, so fans are wondering if the titular protagonist actually survived Kawaki's devastating blow.
We've already shared some of the reactions earlier this week, but with more fans now finishing the manga chapter, we have more reactions to share, and it's a wild mix of different emotions. Check them out:
No emotions from Kawaki?
Let's blame Sasuke, shall we?

They did Naruto dirty.
And here's my reaction:
I just don't think Boruto is dead. The next chapter will most likely reveal how Naruto's son survived that, or maybe that's just a Shadow Clone or illusion. Let us know what you think on my Twitter post.
