Boruto chapter 73 ended on a shocking note with Shikamaru revealing Team 7’s latest mission, which involves Boruto and Kawaki living with Eida to monitor her. This turn of events might further complicate Kawaki and the younger Uzumaki’s relationship, especially with Momoshiki’s ominous prophecy looming overhead.
Fans will have to wait for the newest chapter to be released to find out what Kishimoto has planned for the main characters of the series. Chapter 74 might also provide some clues as to how the current timeline of the manga will connect to the post-timeskip scene from the very beginning of the series.

What to expect in chapter 74?
Chapter 74 will likely focus primarily upon Eida’s arrival to Konoha and her interaction with Kawaki. The chapter might also show how Shikamaru reacts upon realizing that it will be difficult to separate Daemon from his older sister. Amado will probably be under surveillance as well, with Sumire being given the responsibility of keeping an eye on the scientist.
If chapter 74 continues in the same vein as the previous chapter, it might provide more insight into the issue of Momoshiki’s recurring presence and how Naruto, Shikamaru and Sasuke intend to deal with it.
A brief summary of chapter 73
Chapter 73 began with the two Karma seal-bearers meeting for the first time since Borushiki’s appearance and Kawaki’s attempt to kill him. The atmosphere is noticeably tense after Kawaki expressed his surprise at seeing Momoshiki’s vessel returning from the dead. Meanwhile, the latter replied just as nonchalantly, apologizing for worrying everyone.
Shikamaru began explaining the current situation in Konoha. He admitted that both Karma users were currently considered threats because the village did not have the means to check their power if they suddenly went on a rampage. He then began explaining how Eida’s enchantment ability works, and picking Kawaki and Boruto to be Eida’s roommates, since their otsutsufication makes them immune to her charms.
Shikamaru also revealed that the arrangement will please Eida due to her crush on Kawaki. Chapter 74 ended with Naruto Sasuke talking as they discussed that having the two Karma-bearers monitor Eida will basically put them under house-arrest as well. However, the conversation came to a halt when Sasuke and Kawaki momentarily sensed Momoshiki’s presence as he is seen lurking around his vessel.
