[00:21] ---
    This is—!
[00:23] ---
    Isshiki Otsutsuki!
[00:25] ---
    What are you doing here?!
[00:29] ---
    Code...
[00:31] ---
    my most loyal beloved servant.
[00:36] ---
    My soul... will soon be destroyed.
[00:40] ---
    But the will of the Otsutsuki
    must never be allowed to perish.
[00:46] ---
    Not when we have devoured countless planets
[00:50] ---
    and continuously evolved
    over thousands of years...
[00:53] ---
    The very will of the Otsutsuki...
[01:02] ---
    Even I'd...
[01:04] ---
    If it was possible,
    I'd give my life to you...
[01:07] ---
    But this Karma is defective.
[01:11] ---
    Unfortunately, I can't serve as
    a receptacle for your soul.
[01:16] ---
    The non-Vessel White Karma...
[01:20] ---
    That is my legacy dwelling within you
[01:23] ---
    in the form of pure power.
[01:26] ---
    With that White Karma,
[01:28] ---
    you shall inherit
    the will of the Otsutsuki...
[01:32] ---
    Me?!
[01:36] ---
    Sure.
[01:38] ---
    Go on.
[01:39] ---
    What would you have me do?
[01:42] ---
    Kawaki or Boruto Uzumaki...
[01:45] ---
    Consecrate either one of them to Ten Tails
[01:48] ---
    and cultivate a divine tree.
[01:50] ---
    Then procure the Chakra Fruit
    that the Divine Tree bears.
[01:54] ---
    It is the crystallization of a planet's life.
[01:57] ---
    It shall contain everything.
[02:00] ---
    A record of all life that ever
    lived and died on this planet,
[02:04] ---
    including me.
[02:08] ---
    Eat it and update yourself, Code.
[02:14] ---
    You will become a new Otsutsuki.
[02:19] ---
    Then go forth and devour life
    on planet after planet
[02:23] ---
    across this space.
[02:25] ---
    Keep evolving...
[02:27] ---
    until you become a peerless,
    unique existence.
[02:30] ---
    A god.
[02:33] ---
    That is the will of the Otsutsuki...
[02:38] ---
    that you shall inherit...
[02:41] ---
    Code...
[02:51] ---
    I understand.
[02:53] ---
    I promise I'll carry it out.
[02:56] ---
    I won't let anyone call me defective anymore.
[03:01] ---
    No one!
SIGN    1\fs30}Claw Marks*
[04:41] ---
    What are these mysterious things?
[04:46] ---
    Mr. Shikamaru, I've brought him with me.
[04:50] ---
    Oh, you're here!
[04:51] ---
    What did you want with me?
[04:53] ---
    Kawaki, take a look at these.
[04:58] ---
    My subordinate found them
    this morning.
[04:59] ---
    As far as we can tell,
[05:01] ---
    these markings don't match
    any ninjutsu that we know of.
[05:04] ---
    We had a hunch that maybe
    you might know something.
[05:07] ---
    Yeah, I'll never forget them.
[05:11] ---
    Those are Code's Claw Marks.
[05:33] ---
    I finally found it.
[05:46] ---
    Huh?
[05:49] ---
    So cold!
[05:50] ---
    Who are you?
[05:52] ---
    Do you know where you are?
[05:55] ---
    This is Boro's cult facility, right?
[05:57] ---
    I'm an acquaintance of his.
[05:59] ---
    Anyway, could you just let me inside?
[06:01] ---
    Lord Boro's orders
    are to not let anyone through.
[06:05] ---
    Good grief,
[06:06] ---
    you're still following Boro's orders?
[06:09] ---
    Honestly, you're so stupid.
[06:12] ---
    Hey, stop!
[06:14] ---
    Stop right there!
[06:19] ---
    I'm telling you to stop!
    Can't you hear me?!
[06:21] ---
    Still, I guess it makes sense.
[06:23] ---
    Only an idiot would work as a guard
[06:26] ---
    in this freaking freezing back country.
[06:49] ---
    Are you stupid?
[06:51] ---
    How can you just gratefully take medicine
[06:53] ---
    made by a fraud like Amado?
[06:56] ---
    I don't take it because I want to.
[06:58] ---
    If I don't do anything,
    this thing that Momoshiki put on me
[07:02] ---
    would gradually dissolve into my body.
[07:06] ---
    Yeah,
[07:07] ---
    when that happens,
[07:08] ---
    you'll become a complete vessel
    for Momoshiki.
[07:11] ---
    Don't act as if it's not your problem.
[07:13] ---
    Oh man...
[07:15] ---
    It would be great if my Karma
    just disappeared, like yours.
[07:21] ---
    Code's Claw Marks
    were found near the Village.
[07:25] ---
    Code?
[07:26] ---
    You mean that Inner from Kara?
[07:27] ---
    Yeah.
[07:30] ---
    It's convenient that he'd show himself.
[07:33] ---
    Let's foil his plans.
[07:35] ---
    You shouldn't underestimate him.
[07:38] ---
    Code is different from the others.
[07:40] ---
    He's special.
[07:52] ---
    Stop! This is your last warning!
[07:56] ---
    Yeah...
[07:57] ---
    It's the last one you'll give
    in your lifetime.
[08:02] ---
    Damn it!
[08:20] ---
    He disappeared!
[08:21] ---
    What's going on here?!
[08:26] ---
    What is this?!
[08:32] ---
    Hey, behind you!
[08:34] ---
    You're too slow.
[08:39] ---
    Damn it!
[09:01] ---
    S-Stop, don't do it!
[09:04] ---
    In that case, could you answer my questions?
[09:07] ---
    He can move...
    from Claw Mark to Claw Mark?
[09:11] ---
    Once he visits a place,
    as long as he leaves a Claw Mark,
[09:15] ---
    he can come back to it at any time.
[09:17] ---
    That sounds like cheating.
[09:19] ---
    Yeah.
[09:20] ---
    That bastard is the only one aside from me,
[09:23] ---
    who survived Jigen's Ritual, after all.
[09:26] ---
    Ritual?
[09:28] ---
    Oh, that!
[09:33] ---
    It's a ritual to screen
    Otsutsuki vessel candidates.
[09:41] ---
    Countless people who didn't qualify
    for a Karma died.
[09:52] ---
    The only survivors are me and Code.
[09:56] ---
    No...
[09:57] ---
    More accurately, he actually failed.
[10:00] ---
    He had a severe seizure
    and didn't become a Vessel.
[10:03] ---
    But for some reason, he didn't die.
[10:06] ---
    He survived,
[10:07] ---
    and just like me,
    he was compatible with Karma.
[10:10] ---
    So, then Code has a Karma too?
[10:13] ---
    Yeah, but...
[10:15] ---
    it's a White Karma that only
    retained its function as a weapon.
[10:23] ---
    What do you want to know?
[10:26] ---
    There's someone I want to see.
[10:27] ---
    She should be here.
[10:44] ---
    I missed!
[10:47] ---
    He keeps moving around.
[10:55] ---
    Leave this to me.
[11:01] ---
    What an unhealthy-looking kid.
[11:05] ---
    Hey, aren't you cold dressed like that?
[11:09] ---
    I'll show you something cool.
[11:33] ---
    You're surprisingly
    light on your feet, aren't you?
[11:36] ---
    Good grief.
[11:37] ---
    It looks like cleaning up all these corpses
[11:38] ---
    is going to be a chore.
[11:40] ---
    Yeah.
[12:06] ---
    Whoa, you're kidding, right?
[12:08] ---
    Just watch.
[12:09] ---
    With all the performance enhancers
    he's taken, it's not over yet.
[12:52] ---
    I've got you!
[12:59] ---
    I...
[13:00] ---
    I can't move!
[13:09] ---
    The reaction that occurred
    in Code's body was astounding.
[13:13] ---
    Just his combat skills exceeded even Jigen's.
[13:17] ---
    Are you serious?!
[13:19] ---
    Almost all of the members of the Kara
[13:21] ---
    have been modified to strengthen
    their physical attributes,
[13:24] ---
    but it's the opposite in Code's case.
[13:26] ---
    He asked to be modified
    to check his formidable strength.
[13:30] ---
    He worshipped Jigen and didn't
    want to undermine his authority.
[13:36] ---
    Damn it! Where did that bastard go?
[13:39] ---
    I'm over here.
[13:40] ---
    Huh?
[13:48] ---
    An enemy who surpasses Jigen?
[13:51] ---
    The truth is...
[13:52] ---
    I've heard that several of
    the cyborgs that Amado had created...
[13:55] ---
    greatly surpassed Jigen.
[13:58] ---
    But Jigen ordered all of them
    to be disposed of.
[14:18] ---
    Moving around warmed me up a bit.
[14:20] ---
    But it doesn't change the fact
    that it's cold.
[14:23] ---
    Gotta get inside.
[14:28] ---
    I never would have expected that
    Code's already been near the Village.
[14:31] ---
    I think it's safe to assume
    that his ability to move
[14:34] ---
    from Claw Mark to Claw Mark is like
    Lord Fourth's Flying Raijin.
[14:38] ---
    So far, we've found a total of four
    Claw Marks outside of the wall.
[14:44] ---
    We've assigned surveillance
    in teams of three at each spot,
[14:46] ---
    but it wouldn't be unusual
    if he shows up at any time.
[14:50] ---
    Another possibility is that
    those four are a bluff,
[14:52] ---
    a decoy meant to throw us into chaos.
[14:55] ---
    The more personnel we devote
    to these Claw Marks,
[14:58] ---
    the more short-handed we'll be
    inside of the village.
[15:01] ---
    I can't believe
    just a single surviving member
[15:03] ---
    is giving us this much trouble.
[15:05] ---
    Sasuke was going after Code, wasn't he?
[15:08] ---
    Have you received any word from him?
[15:09] ---
    At the moment, we haven't.
[15:11] ---
    I want you to share
    this information with him.
[15:14] ---
    It's most likely that Code...
    intends to kill Sasuke and me.
[15:19] ---
    We think so as well.
[15:21] ---
    Code is targeting those who were
    involved in Isshiki's death:
[15:24] ---
    Naruto, Sasuke, Boruto,
    Kawaki and Amado.
[15:28] ---
    We'll enhance protection for all five of you.
[15:31] ---
    He's got unfinished business
    with us.
[15:33] ---
    He'll likely seize
    the first opportunity to show up.
[15:41] ---
    So, that's why we'll be
    placing a guard with you.
[15:45] ---
    You say it's a guard,
    but it's actually a spy, right?
[15:49] ---
    If the end result is that I'm protected,
[15:51] ---
    I don't care either way.
[15:52] ---
    You're the only one
    who can disable Code's limiters.
[15:57] ---
    In other words,
    you're the most important person
[15:59] ---
    with concern to the safety of the village.
[16:03] ---
    I'm not a pro like you guys.
[16:05] ---
    If Code kidnaps and tortures me,
    I know I'll break pretty easily.
[16:11] ---
    Do your best to protect me.
[16:13] ---
    You're always so tactful
[16:15] ---
    and use the information only you
    know to maximize your advantage.
[16:19] ---
    You're a parasite,
    through and through, aren't you?
[16:22] ---
    That's the only way
    a weakling like myself can survive.
[16:25] ---
    Pay close attention
    to Code's movements.
[16:32] ---
    I would have done that
    even without your advice.
[16:35] ---
    I doubt that even he would
    try to take on the Leaf
[16:38] ---
    at his current power.
[16:40] ---
    That is exactly why
    the first thing he will do is
[16:43] ---
    take steps to remove his limiter.
[16:55] ---
    Hey, Bug.
[16:57] ---
    Why if it isn't Code!
[16:59] ---
    How did you find this place?
[17:01] ---
    It took a lot of work to find it.
[17:03] ---
    What are you doing here?
[17:04] ---
    On an errand for Jigen?
[17:06] ---
    You don't even know, huh?
[17:08] ---
    Jigen is dead.
[17:10] ---
    And so is Boro.
[17:11] ---
    Hey, now. Trouble's afoot, I see.
[17:14] ---
    What's happening?
[17:15] ---
    Sorry, but I didn't come here
    to explain such trivial matters.
[17:20] ---
    By the way...
[17:21] ---
    how's Eida?
[17:24] ---
    W-What are you talking about?
[17:28] ---
    Boro secretly stored several cyborgs here
[17:32] ---
    that Jigen ordered to be scrapped.
[17:35] ---
    Could you take me to her?
[17:37] ---
    I have no intention of defying you, but...
[17:41] ---
    Are you sure that Boro is a-actually dead?
[17:44] ---
    If you're lying, I'll—!
[17:50] ---
    All right!
[17:52] ---
    But you're paying me, got it?
[17:56] ---
    If he removes his limiter,
[17:58] ---
    honestly, it's game over.
[18:02] ---
    I have an idea.
[18:05] ---
    Implant a Karma on him...
[18:08] ---
    and turn him into your own Vessel.
[18:10] ---
    My own... Vessel?
[18:12] ---
    Mind you, this is only a hypothesis,
[18:15] ---
    but if you're able to do that,
[18:16] ---
    you can eliminate Code's existence
    from the world.
[18:20] ---
    Implanting a Karma on someone else...
[18:24] ---
    Do you think it's possible?
[18:27] ---
    At the very least,
[18:28] ---
    we know he survived having
    a Karma implanted into him...
[18:30] ---
    That's what's key.
[18:32] ---
    If it were easy for Karma to stick,
[18:35] ---
    Jigen wouldn't have had so much trouble.
[18:38] ---
    Targeting someone who has
    already survived the procedure
[18:41] ---
    makes sense.
[18:43] ---
    Plus, he isn't anyone else's Vessel.
[18:46] ---
    But you know, implanting a Karma into someone
[18:49] ---
    and turning them into your Vessel...
[18:51] ---
    Doesn't that mean I'd be sacrificing
    someone else in my place?!
[18:54] ---
    I can't do that!
[18:56] ---
    What are you saying at this point, you idiot?
[18:58] ---
    Do you want to die?!
[18:59] ---
    You've got no choice but to do it.
[19:03] ---
    Code is different from the guys
    we've encountered before.
[19:06] ---
    He's not the type of enemy
[19:07] ---
    you'd normally want to
    go up against.
[19:16] ---
    Hey, are you listening, Boruto?!
[19:18] ---
    It's a fact that we can't just keep
    depending on my dad forever.
[19:22] ---
    We gotta step up.
[19:27] ---
    I don't know how strong this Code is...
[19:30] ---
    But do you know, Kawaki?
[19:32] ---
    What we shinobi do in times like these?
[19:35] ---
    Huh? What are you talking about?
[19:38] ---
    We train,
[19:41] ---
    obviously!
[19:49] ---
    Here. That's her.
[19:58] ---
    Hey, Eida.
[20:00] ---
    The one who knows everything
    in this world...
[20:07] ---
    What in the world
    are you stirring up, Code?
[20:10] ---
    Does it matter to you?
[20:12] ---
    O-Of course it does!
[20:14] ---
    I'm the one who's
    in charge of caring for her.
[20:17] ---
    That Boro...
[20:18] ---
    I don't know what he was plotting,
    but he deserved what he got.
[20:23] ---
    I can't believe he disobeyed Jigen
    and actually preserved her.
[20:27] ---
    If you ask me, your knowing
    about her is more of surprise.
[20:32] ---
    Why didn't you report
    Boro's transgression to Jigen?
[20:36] ---
    'Cuz I wasn't sure of it
    until I saw her for myself.
[20:39] ---
    Plus, if Boro were to incur Jigen's wrath.
[20:43] ---
    I'd be the one who'd end up
    having to dispose of him.
[20:46] ---
    And even I don't have the heart...
    to take down a good buddy.
[20:51] ---
    Yeah right.
[20:53] ---
    I bet you wouldn't even blink.
[20:56] ---
    Well, I never dreamed the day would come
[20:59] ---
    when she'd come in handy.
[21:01] ---
    Let's wake her up.
[21:03] ---
    We'll talk after.
[21:10] ---
    I hope you understand
    how her powers work.
[21:16] ---
    "She who knows everything in this world..."
[21:18] ---
    That's all I've heard.
[21:20] ---
    I don't even want to know
    what you plan to have her do,
[21:25] ---
    but you know...
[21:27] ---
    I hate this.
[21:28] ---
    What is it?!
[21:30] ---
    Just spill it.
[21:31] ---
    You can't make her obey using brute force.
[21:35] ---
    She's in a completely different class.
[21:39] ---
    I've had enough outta you.
[21:49] ---
    You bastard!
[21:50] ---
    I wasn't done explaining!
[21:53] ---
    If I want to know, I'll ask her directly.
[21:56] ---
    If she defies me, I'll just kill her.
[22:09] ---
    E-Eida!
[22:40] ---
    'Morning, Eida.
[22:42] ---
    I'm Code.
[22:44] ---
    Sorry to wake you so suddenly.
[23:04] ---
    Hold it.
[23:06] ---
    Can't even bother with a proper greeting?
[23:11] ---
    I came here to talk to you.
[23:13] ---
    However, if you can't concern
    yourself with me, fine.
[23:17] ---
    I'll dispose of you, as per Jigen's orders.
[23:29] ---
    Go ahead and try.
[23:40] ---
    I couldn't attack Eida.
[23:42] ---
    Code, I told you!
[23:44] ---
    You can't underestimate Eida!
