Boruto: Two blue tornadoes has become one of the hottest manga released this year and for good reason. The prequel ended with a major cliffhanger and left fans wanting more. With the first two chapters out, there are many questions surrounding what happened in the three years Boruto was gone, but the biggest question by far is whether Sasuke is still alive or not.
Since 2017 when Boruto first debuted, there have been many rumors about whether Sasuke and Naruto will die or not. It has now been established that Naruto is not in fact dead but has been sealed away, so attention is now on Sasuke. Even so, the rumors do have some validity. The first two chapters of Boruto’s timeskip have small hints hinting at Sasuke’s death.
Boruto has inherited Sasuke’s fortune
In both the first part of the Boruto manga and anime as well as chapter 1 of Boruto: Two Blue Vortex, Boruto is using Sasuke’s sword. Not only that, he also wears a hidden leaf-shaped headband. He also wears a robe which, although not his, is reminiscent of Sasuke’s signature style. While it’s still pure speculation, it seems Boruto inherited his master’s items after his death.
It is unknown who may have killed Sasuke, but there is strong suspicion that it may have been Code. After all, it was revealed that Code is stronger than Jigen and can defeat Naruto and Sasuke without any limitations. Sasuke no longer has the Rinnegan, so if he is unlucky enough to encounter Code, he will be easily killed.
Code has been hunting Boruto and Sasuke for years
With Eida using his powers, Code now hates Boruto instead of Kawaki. He’s hunting him down, and this will lead him straight to Sasuke, who’s with Boruto. Since there is no chance, Sasuke will probably sacrifice himself to let Boruto escape and give him his valuable possessions. In chapter 1 of Two Blue Vortex, Code reveals that he has been hunting Boruto for the past two years. This confirms the possibility that he may have encountered Sasuke during this chase.
Although the manga has subtly hinted at Sasuke’s death, there are also inconsistencies in the theory. The biggest thing is that Boruto has no bloodlust, nor a sense of revenge when facing Code. In reality, he offered a truce in exchange for Code halting his plans. Boruto looked up at Sasuke, almost reversing him so if Code killed someone so precious he would be furious. For now, Sasuke’s current status in Boruto is pure speculation, and until the manga confirms whether he is dead or alive, everything related to the subject should be taken with a grain of salt. .
