Hey everyone! Hope you are doing well. I’m back here at TheAnimeScrolls with another interesting informative post. In this post, I’ll be discussing the explosion release. We have seen the explosion release in action quite a few times, but we don’t know an awful lot about it. So, in this post I’ll be talking about everything there is related to this explosion release.
Let’s begin this post regarding the explosion release in NarutoVerse
Explosion Release is also known as Bakutan or explosion. When we hear about the name explosion the first thing that comes into our minds is that how in the hell there can be a nature based on just explosions.
Even though it seems pretty weird but believe me it’s true. First I used to think that Deidara blowing up things was just another one of the creative applications of chakra in NarutoVerse. I never thought there could be a Kekkei Genkai which could be easily used to blow up things.
The official composition of this Kekkei Genkai is still unknown and hasn’t been confirmed yet in Naruto or in the Boruto series.
But there is a strong speculation that this Kekkei Genkai is composed of earth release and lightning release nature transformations. Earth release is one of the nature transformations that Deidara was capable of using officially.
Also, earth release has been shown to be one of the nature transformations of more than one Kekkei Genkai. For example, we have seen earth release combining with fire release to make lava release.
Earth release and water release give rise to the all-powerful wood release and also we have seen earth release and wind release give rise to magnet release. Thus, it is possible that earth release and lightning release gives rise to explosion release.
Although I do not have any idea how this could work it seems to be completely logical.
Earth release has to be one of the nature transformations that make up explosion release because of it’s one of Deidara’s official nature transformation that he uses.
We do know how powerful this Kekkei Genkai is as against all odds Deidara was able to beat the Kazekage of Sunagakure, Gaara with this explosion release only and even gave Sasuke Uchiha a run for his money but ultimately lost the battle.
All the known explosion release users have hailed from Iwagakure aka the Hidden Stone Village. We know that almost all shinobi from this village are the users of earth release nature transformation. Also, this Kekkei Genkai ability is more common than other Kekkei Genkai abilities.
As other Kekkei Genkai abilities are mostly clan-based but this is a whole village based. Even though we have just seen a total of two users of explosion release users namely Deidara and Gari.
But it is understood that there is a whole bunch of users of this Kekkei Genkai in the Hidden Stone Village as it is mentioned in the manga that there was a whole squad of Explosion Corps in Iwagakure.
Now, let’s talk about the working of Explosion Release. Its working is a bit more complex than most people think. It’s not just about blowing stuff up.
This Kekkei Genkai can be used in a number of different ways. We have seen Deidara and Gari use this Kekkei Genkai ability in completely opposite ways. Deidara combination with his chakra to create bombs and is suitable for long-range use. Gari just punches things and causes them to explode this ability is suited for short range use.
Since they use it oppositely, this Kekkei Genkai is easily the most versatile Kekkei Genkai in NarutoVerse. We’ll get to see more Kekkei Genkai abilities in Boruto series.
We have seen the explosive gum in Boruto anime in the Chunin exams. It could also be one of the techniques of explosion release. I’m sure we’ll get to see more abilities of Explosion Release in Boruto series. I would certainly want to see more of this Kekkei Genkai in the future.
That is it from today’s post on explaining explosion release and why is the explosion release one of the most underrated Kekkei Genkai in NarutoVerse. I do hope I was able to provide an explanation regarding this Kekkei Genkai in an understandable manner.
