Kawaki (Japanese: カワキ) is a fictional character from Ukyō Kodachi and Mikio Ikemoto's manga Boruto: Na-ru-to Next Generations. Initially appearing in the flashforward in the series' debut, Kawaki is a young man who apparently would become the nemesis of the series' lead character, Boruto Uzumaki. Kawaki is later introduced as a rebellious thành viên from the organization Kara who wishes lớn escape and remove his cursed mark "Karma" (, Kāma) from his toàn thân. In his escape he meets Boruto's ninja team, who take him lớn the Hidden Leaf Village. Na-ru-to takes the teenager under his wing, seeking lớn protect him from enemies, and he bonds with the family as time passes, beginning lớn view Na-ru-to as a father-figure and Boruto as a foster brother, lượt thích Sasuke in the past Naruto series, with similar attitude.

Kawaki was created by Kodachi and Ikemoto as a major rival lớn Boruto. Naruto author Masashi Kishimoto suggested the idea of introducing both he and Boruto through a flashforward in order lớn cause greater impact. The character is voiced by Yūma Uchida in Japanese and Michael Schwalbe in English.

Kawaki's first appearance in the manga and anime of Boruto caused some backlash from the fanbase due lớn his implied violent actions against Na-ru-to Uzumaki. However, his debut in the narrative proper was the subject of praise for his interactions with the main character and his growth from a cold-hearted teenager lớn a more caring person under Naruto's influence.

Creation and development[edit]

In the first pages of the first chapter of Boruto: Na-ru-to Next Generations, a flashforward shows an older teenage Boruto Uzumaki confronting Kawaki over a ruined Konoha.[2] The scene has a dark tone, meant lớn build anticipation and suspense throughout the story.[3] When writer Ukyō Kodachi showed artist Mikio Ikemoto the script for this scene, Ikemoto was highly surprised.[4] The artist notes that the teenage designs were created in a short amount of time, and, as a result, once the story reached this moment, the older protagonists' designs might change.[5]

Ikemoto described the character's relationship with Boruto as antagonistic, noting both their implied past as allies, and their greater vitriol towards each other in comparison lớn Na-ru-to and Sasuke in the original Naruto manga, even clashing in visual appearance.[4] Ikemoto has also commented that when the two interact, Boruto's design becomes more serious and "overgrown", in rebelliousness against Kawaki.[6]

In December 2020, it was announced that Yūma Uchida would voice Kawaki in the anime adaptation of Boruto.[7] Uchida was pleased with taking the role of Kawaki due lớn the popularity of the Boruto series.[8] Following the announcement, Kodachi expressed joy in seeing Kawaki animated in the anime and thus looked forward lớn người hâm mộ tư vấn.[9] In the same month Ikemoto stated that the anime would make further progress in regards lớn Kawaki's and Boruto's meeting. However, he still refrained from explaining the flashforward at the start. Ikemoto stated that in future chapters, more hints will be revealed about the flashforward, such as their growth, why they become hostile and what Kawaki means when talking about Na-ru-to.[10]


Kawaki first appears in Boruto's first chapter in a flashforward, where he and Boruto Uzumaki seem lớn have become enemies. An older Kawaki appears lớn have sealed or killed Na-ru-to and levelled Konoha as he confronts an older Boruto, declaring "the age of shinobi has finally come lớn an end".[11]

Kawaki is introduced as a valuable piece of cargo, "the Vessel" lost lớn Kara in a transport accident, encountered soon afterward by Boruto's ninja team who bring him lớn the Hidden Leaf. Having become a thành viên of Kara after being bought by Jigen from a cold and drunkard father as a youngster, he was given a tattoo of the Roman numeral IX under his left eye. He, alongside 13 children and teenagers, would be experimented on and bestowed a Kama mark by Jigen,[12] and heavily modified with microscopic Shinobi-Ware implanted in his toàn thân, giving him an ability lớn alter his physiology for combat.

Highly distrustful of Kara for Jigen's abusive and cruel treatment, Kawaki defects. In order lớn protect him from Kara, Boruto's father, the Seventh Hokage Na-ru-to, adopts him as his own son. Initially distant lớn everybody, Kawaki spends his time with the Uzumaki family repairing a vase Himawari made for Hinata's birthday, which he had accidentally destroyed .[13]

When Kara's thành viên Delta attacks the village lớn take Kawaki back, Na-ru-to comes lớn his defense and saves him.[14] Now growing lớn care for his guardian, Kawaki requests the Hokage train him lớn become a ninja.[15] When Kara's leader Jigen, having tracked Kawaki, attacks the village and kidnaps Na-ru-to, Kawaki joins Boruto, and his allies, Sarada Uchiha and Mitsuki, lớn reclaim him. They face the Kara thành viên Boro,[16] and Boruto's Karma mark causes him lớn be possessed by Momoshiki Otsutsuki, who mocks and brutally kills Boro. The team manages lớn rescue the Hokage and return lớn Konohagakure,[17] and Kawaki later learns from Amado of Jigen's true nature and relationship with the Otsutsuki clan.

After Jigen is outsmarted and incinerated by Koji Kashin, Isshiki Ōtsutsuki (forced lớn reincarnate in Jigen's charred corpse) attacks Konoha lớn brand Kawaki with a new Karma and take Boruto as a sacrifice lớn the God Tree, since Boruto's Karma has reached a high decompression level.

Through the combined effort of Na-ru-to, Sasuke and Kawaki, Isshiki is finally defeated. Shortly afterwards, a Momoshiki-possessed Boruto attacks Sasuke off-guard, stabbing his left eye and destroying his Rinnegan. Kawaki and a barely-conscious Sasuke manage lớn fend off Momoshiki until Boruto recovers his consciousness.


Initial reception lớn Kawaki's introduction was mixed. Allega Frank of Polygon noticed that at the start of both the manga and anime, Kawaki's debut in the flashforward caused fans lớn revolt over his possible future actions against the previous protagonist, Na-ru-to Uzumaki.[18] Finding multiple issues in the manga's premiere, Chris Beveridge of The Fandom Post gave little attention lớn the flashforward.[19]

Critical opinion shifted after his proper introduction in the series. Reacting lớn his introduction, Melina Dargis of The Fandom Post found Kawaki's rivalry with Boruto similar lớn their predecessors (Naruto and Sasuke)'s own, but noticed their differences in personality and potential for a friendlier relationship, and thus looked forward lớn their future development.[20] Leroy Douresseaux expected Kawaki will have a major impact in Boruto's life in regards lớn his way of fighting.[21] Manga News found that while Kawaki's introduction might come across as forced, his relationship might also parallel Naruto's and Sasuke's but it would be hard lớn reach that level.[22] IGN praised Kawaki's fight in the anime against Garo.[23]

Nevertheless, the reviewer found that Kawaki's cold demeanor fades in narrative time the more he interacts with the Uzumaki family, resulting in interesting calm chapters, most notably with Na-ru-to when he asks him lớn train him lớn become a ninja. As a result, Manga News found that since his introduction his character made a major impact lớn the narrative rather phàn nàn the actual protagonist, Boruto.[24][25] FandomPost agreed, claiming Kawaki's introduction lớn ninjutsu and bonds with the Uzumaki family lớn be the highlight of the manga's ninth as the young man wishes lớn be taught by Na-ru-to.[26] IGN also found Kawaki's relationship with Na-ru-to as endearing as he was willing lớn return lớn Jigen if he does not harm the Hokage, whom the writer compared lớn the one of an actual father.[27] When Na-ru-to and Sasuke are defeated by Kara, IGN looked forward lớn Kawaki and Boruto's actions lớn protect the Hokage, noting their Karma seals might be explored in the future lớn give them new powers even though the antagonists are aware of such power and are using them.[28] Crunchyroll regarded Kawaki as one of the most likable teenagers in anime due lớn how, despite starting as a rebellious antisocial youth, he quickly becomes more caring with the Uzumaki family when Na-ru-to decides lớn take care of him.[29]

Game designer Hiroshi Matsuyama from CyberConnect2 praised the debut of Kawaki in the manga due lớn his involvement in the narrative as well as the fight sequences he takes part of. Matsuyama also praised how Ikemoto designed Kawaki, finding the illustration of him in the cover of the series' seventh manga volume striking.[30] In poll from 2021, Kawaki was voted as the seventh best character from Boruto: Na-ru-to Next Generations.[31] Kawaki's fight with Garo was also listed as the best anime fight from 2021 by Crunchyroll.[32]
