Did Naruto die in Boruto?!

Announced since the beginning of Boruto, Naruto's death appears imminent. After so many fights, it seems that Naruto will take part in his last fight against Isshiki Otsutsuki. On the verge of death, the Seventh Hokage is forced to use his last and final strength with the help of Kurama in order to save his son and the village of Konoha. Like his father did, Naruto seems to want to sacrifice himself in order to defeat his opponent.

Naruto's death makes sense since it will allow more freedom and importance to the main character who is none other than his son. Indeed, the manga must above all focus on the adventures of Boruto, and the death of his father could develop new aspects of the young ninja.
