When Naruto first began, fans of the anime would have never expected the Nine-Tailed Fox to become the hero we know today. Despite his horrific introduction back in the day, Naruto Uzumaki managed to make peace with his tenant, and the pair forged a relationship at the end of Naruto Shippuden that made everyone teary. Of course, this means all eyes are on Boruto as the anime just took a major step with Kurama, and they need to know whether he’s really gone from the franchise now…
So, the question stands before us… Can Kurama die? And did he really just die in the newest episode of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations?
Unfortunately, the answer to both questions is yes. The Tailed Beasts can die, and it seems that is really what happened in the anime’s latest episode. Kurama did not give his emotional farewell for no reason, and fans will have to come to terms with that on their own.
