Does Kurama Come Back To Life in Boruto Manga?
Here's everything we know about it.
After watching Boruto’s latest anime episode, Naruto fans want to know if Kurama comes back to life in the manga series. Well, here’s everything you need to know about it.
Boruto anime fans are heartbroken after Kurama, the nine-tailed fox, sacrificed his life to give Naruto a fighting chance against Jigen. Of course, watching Naruto overwhelming his opponent in Baryon mode was pretty sick. However, not even a single Naruto fan was ready to say goodbye to Kurama, who paid Baryon Mode’s price with his life.
Watching Naruto and Kurama’s last fist bump was incredibly emotional for the entire community. Also, the episode featured a surprise farewell for Kurama, which indeed got everyone teared up.

Will Kurama Come Back to Life?
Sadly, there’s no hint of Kurama coming back to life in the Boruto manga series when writing this post. So, it’s safe to say that’s how things will stay in the anime as well.
In the manga, Kurama died in chapter 55, and episode 219 adapted 11 pages from the same chapter. Currently, the manga series has released 62 chapters, with a new chapter coming out later this month. And much to everyone’s disappointment, there’s no mention of Kurama getting revived in the manga, at least for now.

What Are The Chances of Kurama Coming Back to Life?
Of course, it’s too soon to rule out that possibility, but honestly, the chances of Kurama coming back to life are very thin. Generally, when a Jinchuuriki’s Biju is extracted, the Jinchuuriki also dies; however, in the case of Naruto, Kurama’s Chakra has simply vanished, the reason why Naruto survived the whole ordeal.
The Baryon Mode, as explained by the nine-tailed fox himself, ate Kurama’s life-force chakra. So, for Kurama to come back, there must be some chunk on his Chakra left. However, if that were the case, Naruto would have felt his Chakra, which he didn’t until now. Nevertheless, Boruto manga is still ongoing, so anything’s possible. Maybe Ukyō Kodachi and Masashi Kishimoto will bring back the nine-tailed beast when the manga enters its final phase.
