With the recent developments in the manga, Kawaki lost his Karma seal due to Isshiki manifesting in Jigen. Thus, the Karma seal on Kawaki disappears. Therefore, this raises a major concern, whose Karma does Kawaki have in the first panel of the manga. This led to fans speculating,
How Did Kawaki Get His Karma Seal Again?
In the very first panel, Kawaki has a karma seal and is fighting Boruto. In this his words display a rather sinister motive. However, despite the sinister tone, he mentions of “sending” Naruto away. This could mean he again took Karma seal not for his own benefit. There are various possibilities that can make him regain the Karma seal. Let’s dive deeper into them.
Momoshiki Imprinting Kawaki With New Karma
Since Isshiki is dead he can’t plant Karma seal anymore. Thus, Momoshiki is the only one who can plant a new Karma seal. Also as mentioned in the manga, Code is stronger than Isshiki, who belittled Naruto and Sasuke in their fight. Thus, in their fight against Code, Boruto again might succumb to Momoshiki. This could further lead Momoshiki to implant a new karma seal on Kawaki. In addition to creating a backup for himself, it’ll also serve the purpose of hurting Boruto. Hence, Momoshiki could be one of the reasons for Kawaki regaining his Karma seal.
Code Will Implant Karma On Kawaki To Revive Isshiki
As mentioned by Kawaki in chapter 56, Karma can be transferred by its user to someone else. And as we all know, Code possesses the White Karma, he recently used its power to free Eida from Boro’s hideout. So during their final showdown, Code might eventually get defeated by the heroes. And in his final moments of desperation and affection towards Otsutsuki, he might transfer his Karma seal to Kawaki. This could one of the possibilities for Kawaki to regain his Karma seal.
However, unfortunately for Code, this karma seal will not resurrect Isshiki as Code’s karma is incomplete. Thus, granting Kawaki all the powers of Isshiki without any risk.
Eida Bewitches Code Into Transferring The Karma To Kawaki
A newly-introduced villain with unbelievable power. She can make anyone fall for her without even trying. However, her abilities don’t work on Otsutsuki and blood relatives. She stole Code’s heart the moment he lays eyes on her. Also, she has the power of Clairvoyance, she views every event happening, globally, in real-time. Thanks to this, she knows about Kawaki being 80% Otsutsuki. Thus, making him a candidate of being the only guy with whom she can experience true love. Since Code is already under her spell, she might force him to implant Karma on Kawaki and make him powerful. Also, she doesn’t seem to like Code and work under him. Thus having a person who is stronger than Code as her partner is favourable to Eida. This could be one of the reasons how Kawaki regains his Karma.
Kawaki Steals Karma From Code To Battle Boruto.
Momoshiki while passing Karma to Boruto mentions that he will lose everything he holds dear. This statement is emphasized in the manga via various scenarios. Be it Naruto getting sealed by Jigen or Kurama’s death. Also, with the introduction of Byakugan destroying pills, Hinata and Himawari are also in danger.
In addition to all these threats, the hints of Sasuke’s death also point to the dark future of Boruto. Due to these unfortunate events, Boruto might become the villain of his own story. Due to this Kawaki might be forced to take up the responsibility of stopping Boruto. Thus Kawaki reaches out to Code and deceives him into giving Karma back to him. And that’s why Kawaki is sporting a Karma in the first scene of the series.
Also, Momoshiki inside Boruto could be a major factor as to why Boruto goes down a darker path. I highly doubt that Momoshiki will turn around like Kurama did with Naruto. He’s pure evil wanting to destroy Earth and become a powerful God.
These are some of the reason that explain how Kawaki could regain his Karma. These reasons also hint that Kawaki is not acting against the village. However, he is trying to protect it. Or he is a victim to someone else’s schemes. Thus, noting that Kawaki is a good guy and has a motive to protect village. Do you also think that Kawaki is the protagonist? Let us know in the comments.
