In our in-depth study dedicated to the mythology behind Naruto’s Ootsutsuki, we have analyzed all the sources of inspiration that have allowed the characterization of each member of the clan of aliens and demons linked to the Fruit of the Chakra and the Ten Tails, and verified as diverse key characters in history have contributed to enrich or not the veil of mystery that hung over their figures.
Thanks to the shocking statements of loved, happened in chapter 51 of the manga Boruto: Naruto Next Generation, we can finally operate one chronological reconstruction of the events related to this Clan and how they have Influenced the lives and events of the characters in the works linked to the universe created by Masashi Kishimoto.
Kaguya and Isshiki
In the Naruto manga, we always knew that Kaguya had arrived, centuries before current events, from alone, coming from a distant and unknown land. Amado partially distorts what we knew by giving a more complete and, at the same time, terrifying view. The scientist affirms that, in addition to the alien nature of these characters, usually enter Couple and his task is to use a Ten Tails to give life to the divine tree that, by draining the chakra of living beings, produces a fruit capable of conferring power and longevity to whoever eats it. But the news does not stop there because, with the latest chapter of Boruto, a fundamental piece of its social construction is added: to start this diabolical process, it is necessary that, in addition to the Ten Tails, also the member of Lower range Clan yes sacrificed with the purpose.
In the present case, Kaguya she was destined to sacrifice herself for her partner Isshiki. By not accepting this sad fate, the princess does attack treacherous, seriously wounding him. The latter, to survive, entered the body of Jigen, a young monk at that time, and implanted the cursed sign of Karma to be reborn later.
Believing that she had eliminated her loved one, the Rabbit Goddess married a human being and had two children with him: Hagoromo me Dough. After also killing her husband, Kaguya, still pregnant with the twins, chose to eat the fruit of the Divine Tree, probably generated thanks to a part of Isshiki’s body, gaining possession of the resulting chakra. Having become omnipotent, he subdued the entire world.
However, as we know from the mother’s work, the two sons decided to stop him, seal him up, and divide his power into the nine Cercoteri. Hagoromo and Hamura were entrusted with two different and fundamental tasks: the first, had the objective of distributing the chakra to all the creatures of the earth, instructing them through the Ninshuwhile the latter became the leader of the Ootsutsuki Clan and moved with him to the Moon to guard the Devil Statue, the lifeless body of the Ten Tails.
Hagoromo also had two sons, Indra me Ashura, while some of Hamura’s descendants remained on Earth, giving birth to the Hyuga Clan. As Naruto readers and fans know, the two sons of the Hermit of the Six Paths came into conflict, shaping all the events related to the shinobi story, with the consequent rebirth and defeat of Kaguya at the hands of Squad 7 of the Village of the Foglia, at the end of the Fourth Ninja World War.
Furthermore, it is possible to assume that the Kaguya Clan, of which he was a part Kimimaro, may have some connection with Ootsutsuki, especially it can be deduced from the innate ability of the former follower of Orochimaru, who had the ability to manipulate his own bones, similar to Kaguya.
The event of Momoshiki, Kinshiki and Urashiki
During the events of the movie Boruto: Naruto the Movie And with the anime version of Naruto’s son manga, we learn that Kaguya created a zetsu army just to defend againstinvasion from Momoshiki, Kinshiki ed Urashiki, wanting to appropriate the power of the Ootsutsuki, considering it their property by right.
The first two will be defeated by Naruto, Sasuke, and Boruto along with the four Kage as they attempt to appropriate the fox’s Chakra Kurama. However, Momoshiki, before dying, implanted the Karma in Boruto hoping to be reborn, just like Isshiki did with Jigen a few centuries ago. More details about the Clan have emerged in this saga, including its internal hierarchy, with Kinshiki featured as a lower ranking member. Urashiki (character that appeared in some filler episodes of the Boruto television series), was defeated by Boruto and Sasuke with the help of Jiraya and a very young Naruto, after the Ootsutsuki had decided to go back in time to steal the Fox from Nine- Followed before the Seventh reached a total symbiosis with the demon.
Kara and the return of Isshiki
And here we come to the new narrative arc of the manga dedicated to the son of the Hokage, where the Konoha ninja must face the threat of the organization. Kara directed by Jigen.
The goal of the organization is recreate a new divine tree To obtain a new fruit from the Chakra but, to be successful, Isshiki, who controls Jigen from the inside, not only needs Kawaki as a container to be reborn, but also Boruto himself, who must act as a sacrifice for the Ten-Tails. : the same fate that, in the past, Isshiki wanted to reserve for his partner Kaguya, before the famous “rabbit goddess” rebelled. How the fate of the Ootsutsuki clan will turn out we will know, of course, just by reading Mikio Ikemoto and Ukyo Kodachi’s manga.
