In the ever-evolving saga of ‘Boruto: Two Blue Vortex’, Kawaki’s arrogance has escalated to dangerous heights, leading to one of the series’ most pivotal missteps. This chapter of the Naruto franchise’s legacy, penned by the talented team of Masashi Kishimoto, Mikio Ikemoto, Mari Morimoto, and Snir Aharon, delves deep into the consequences of Kawaki’s overconfidence. The latest installment, now available in English from Viz Media, unravels a narrative that sees Kawaki’s inflated ego not only endangering himself but also the very fabric of the Hidden Leaf Village.
Kawaki: From Hero to Hubris
Once a figure of admiration, Kawaki’s journey in ‘Boruto: Two Blue Vortex’ takes a darker turn. Elevated to an almost princely status within the Hidden Leaf Village, his decision to exile Naruto Uzumaki and Hinata Hyuga to a pocket dimension marks the beginning of his descent. His manipulative prowess has convinced the villagers of his false identity as Naruto’s son, granting him an army to pursue his vendettas against Boruto and Code.

Kawaki vs. Code: A Battle of Wits and Egos
The pivotal confrontation with Code exposes Kawaki’s inability to separate personal vendettas from strategic combat. Despite having Code at his mercy, weakened by Boruto’s newly mastered Uzuhiko Rasengan, Kawaki’s penchant for grandstanding proves to be his undoing. His ego-driven speech, aimed at crushing Boruto’s spirit, provides Code with a crucial window to escape. This mistake not only costs Kawaki a significant victory but also endangers the village, as Code is known for his adaptability and ruthlessness.
The Need for Steady Leadership in Konoha
Kawaki’s error underscores a critical need in the Hidden Leaf Village – the return of level-headed leaders like Naruto or Boruto. Kawaki’s approach, marked by stubbornness and a lack of foresight, is a stark contrast to the strategic acumen that Naruto and Boruto have historically demonstrated. This contrast is evident in Boruto’s swift action, deploying tracking toads on Code’s trail, exemplifying the proactive approach required in such high-stakes scenarios.
The Implications of Kawaki’s Reign for the Future of Konoha
As the narrative of ‘Boruto: Two Blue Vortex’ progresses, it becomes increasingly apparent that Kawaki’s leadership style spells potential doom for Konoha. His failure to capture Code not only allows an imminent threat to recuperate but also sets the stage for a possible apocalypse. This is a chilling reminder of the village’s first flash-forward scene, which depicted the village in ruins under Kawaki’s regime.
The Need for Redemption and Strong Leadership
Kawaki’s journey in ‘Boruto: Two Blue Vortex’ serves as a cautionary tale about the dangers of arrogance and the importance of sound leadership. As the series progresses, it becomes clear that the future of the Hidden Leaf Village may hinge on the return of wise leaders like Naruto or the emergence of new ones like Boruto. Their experience and ability to remain grounded in the face of adversity might be the only hope for the village to avert the looming disaster foreshadowed in the series.
