Anime fans, especially die-hard ‘Naturo’ fans, if you haven’t heard the news, we’ve got a pretty heartbreaking one for you.
And if you haven’t reached ‘Boruto: Naruto Next Generations’ chapter 55, we strongly advise you to stop reading unless you don’t mind spoilers!
‘Naruto’ was recently trending on Twitter when it was discovered that the one of the most iconic characters in the anime has died.
Spoiler alert: don't say we didn't warn you.
RIP, old friend
Naruto’s soulmate, the nine-tailed fox named Kurama
, has died after activating the Baryon mode with Naruto.
Apparently, in a leaked comic stip from Chapter 55, Kurama lied to Naruto when it told him that activating Baryon would kill them both.
It ended up taking only Kurama’s life instead.
Fans were completely shattered over the news and took to Twitter to express their sadness and bid goodbye to Kurama.
Some said that this was bound to happen and was inevitable; others were just in complete shock.
So, were you expecting Kurama’s death down the line? Or were you as gobsmacked too?
