Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 58: The Right Job For Idiots and Bastards is finally here, and although it doesn't have a lot of plot development regarding Code and Elda, we get to see more character development as Boruto and Kawaki begin their training to prepare themselves against the powerful villains. 

After Naruto gives Boruto medication to supress Ohtsutsukification, Boruto and Kawaki begin their training with Sarada and Mitsuki but it seems that Kawaki is taking things too seriously. Even Konohamaru, who's watching their training with Naruto from afar, comments that Kawaki doesn't have team spirit. Boruto and Kawaki face off in a well-paced duel, but Boruto ends up winning the fight, and Kawaki admits that he lost, but is determined to be a lot stronger "no matter what it takes". 

Although the chapter doesn't give us a look at what Code and Eida are up to, this is a nice build-up that shows more character development for both Boruto and Kawaki. Many fans are already speculating that Kawaki will eventually go up against Boruto one day, probably after timeskip, just like how Sasuke faced Naruto, but we'll have to wait and see. The next Boruto chapter should feature more of Code and Eida, and we might get to see the side-effects from the medication that Boruto took. 

The next Boruto: Naruto Next Generations chapter will be released on June 20, 2021. 

Do you think Kawaki will eventually surpass Boruto's power? How do you think their relationship will develop in the future? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
