How wrong is it that I want to use Legends of the Wulin or soemthing similar to play a game in the Naruto setting
The Naruto setting is actually really interesting. It's just Naruto and the Uchiha clan keep fucking it up for everyone.
>>22781236Honestly, Naruto (the character)'s biggest problem is his Sasuke obsession
Idea: play as genin from Kumo (the village of awesome wrestlers and also black people), do some missions, eventually go to the chunin exams, suplex Sasuke
>>22781236We just had a great thread proving that, with some removals and reskinning, you can turn Bleach into an interesting setting with the potential for a lot of great stories and fascinating characters.We can do the same with Naruto, but it will take considerably less work because the majority of your work will be removing all this ridiculous Madara Uchiha bullshit and instead focus on the idea of young ninjas doing missions around the world to earn their rank as a more skilled and valuable ninja.
Naruto is one of those "Settings with great potential" but it's got really bad story.
>>22781324Can I get a link to that thread?......I want to believe.
>>22781324You don't even really need to retcon anything if it's pre timeskipAlso, am I the only one who thinks the real Madara rivals Orochimaru as best villain? He just gives absolutely no fucks at all
>>22781236Agreed. A universe where autonomous, mercenary city-states which have totally usurped the known-world's military needs are in a state of constant cold-war with each other, use an apprenticeship education system where every child as part of the basic curriculum is a soldier (with varying degrees of brutality), have significant internal strife due to constant politicking and long-memory grudges between ancient families who have only been at peace and part of unified nations with each other for relatively recent history compared to their overall existance, and are constantly working to police their own particularly powerful members who can be as powerful as individuals as an entire army of normal soldiers. Its definitely got potential.If only the plot didn't decide to go full retard after the time skip...
>>22781324I need a link to this thread, this sounds amazing
>>22781324I'd love to see that thread. Then again I might end up hating it, because sometimes when /tg/ has a "fix *blank," thread it just ends up being "retcon everything that came before a point in the story that I personally liked, then fill in with my fanfiction."Threads where /tg/ tries to take a setting, warts and all, and ACTUALLY fix it, as in minimize the outright scourging and focus on finding ways to make the shitty stuff good without removing it through consistent storytelling, sensible explanations, and minimalist corrections and additions, are rare.
>>22781511It's a long one and the discussion doesn't really pick up until that jackass stops dumping manga about halfway through.
>>22781408>>22781511>>22781596And I forgot linkarchive.foolz.us/tg/thread/22771973It is a pretty heavy retcon that reduces Bleach to it's most basic elements.
>>22781469Not all of the children are forced into the ninja academies, not even most of them.
So how about something on the other side of this topic, seeing as the setting has been addressed?
>>22781621>It is a pretty heavy retcon that reduces Bleach to it's most basic elements.See, this is my problem. Who decides what Bleach's "basic elements," are? Who decides where the cutoff point of good ideas is? Why is anyone who likes any given element that came in after left out in the cold?Its frustrating.
http://worldoffivenations.proboards.com/And search suptg for 'five nations' or something for a couple of quest threads based on the whole idea.Miight be a bit dead right now
>>22781684Yeah, being a ninja is just like, a job.
>>22781791Like a soldier, more than anything.
>>22781684>>22781791I think he's just saying the kids in the education system are treated as soldiers
Is there a way to fix the cluster fuck that is the power creep of naruto/ bleach? The Hokage battle during the Chunin exams should be an example of mind bending power. He summoned a god of death! Now even the bottom tier characters are killing wannabe kaiju on their way to more important things. max power level should be at most, early post time skip naruto. like super early. that is the max level end game ass kickery. It could really work. I would just make sure all of the clan powers were either reduced dramatically or outright banned/ npc only for BBEG
>>22781754the monster of the week spectral samurai thing seems pretty much the core. the soul society arc and it's power levels seem like a good way to cap it.
How to make legend of Wulin into a semi-freeform awesome system: 1.You may now throw dice allies to boost their numbers. Eg ally has 3x4 = 34, you also have 2x4, so you describe how you help him and add up to a 5x4 = 54.This makes it so that all players at the table sit on the edge of their seats for the whole session and promotes teamplay.2.Defending with 5 more than the attack turns it into a counter. E.g defending with 40 when a dude attacks you with 20, makes it so that you counter his attack and he now has to defend.We tried this and it resulted in the most intense fight-scenes we ever saw.
>>22781889I don't feel like there was all that much Power creep in Naruto until the fight between Jiraiya and Pain. Until that point we had a pretty good idea of how powerful all the most powerful ninja we'd been introduced to were. The Akatsuki we got to see, the Sennin and the other powerhouse characters seemed to be pretty reasonable barometers for each other and what the highest level of power for the world was. But after that fight everything went whack-a-fuck.
>>22781947As much as people hate Bleach, that arc was actually pretty decent on most counts IMO. A good cap, things went to shit after that one.>>22781889I'd make it so that things like the Sharingan took a fuckton of exp to unlock. You'd have to seriously gimp your character for more than a few sessions, have his buddies help him and he get lucky more than once before he finally got it down. Then he'd pretty much catch up with the rest of the group. Make him a kind "Magikarp" as it were. That also ensures he's a good player that the others want to help as "That Guy" could never pull it off.But still, time and exp spent unlocking his "bloodline limit" is time/exp not spent on unlocking other skills/ninjutsu. A "normal" ninja can still take them if they're smart. Think Rock Lee vs. Sauske before his bullshit. Don't matter if you know what I'm about to do thanks to hax eyes, if I'm so fast your body can't react in time then it's really a moot point. Same thing should be emphasized. Yeah, that power kicks ass and all, but there's more than a few ways around it and don't you DARE forget it or you WILL get raped.>>22781567We've done it before, we'll do it again. It's what /tg/ does, turn shit into gold.
>>22781206Naruto is a terrible seriesSakura is the worst girl
>>22781889NAruto isn't about ninja anymore, its about a bunch of wizards from prestigious bloodlines casting spells at each other, its fucking D&D three-point-five
>>22782470Hinata and Shizune are best.
>>22782470OP here>implying Hinata isnt my waifu
>>22782516>implying Hinata isn't second worst girlThere is only one right choice, and that is Temari. Shikamaru has impeccable taste in women.
>>22782431Thats what i was thinking about bleach. The beginning of the series is low level ghosts and stuff. then he starts to really face off against the terrifying beastiest that the best of the best dont enjoy facing. At this point it gets difficult seeing as how his only realistic enemies are other shinigami, and not every campaign should go trouncing through soul society. maybe the idea of arrancar (or however you spell it) can be used but limited in OMGOPWTFBBQ that bleach so loves. and i like the specialization required. most players wont want to gimp themselves so heavily just so they can go "lol i see you" where do you think the power levels should get capped?
>>22782507>>22782516She's also basically the main heroine by this point.
>>22782563If Kishimoto doesn't deliver I'll cry like a little girl
>>22782561They'd want to gimp for RP reasons or because they have a build that sort of requires that power. I mean, Byakugan is a damn useful power both in combat and outside it. 360 vision, always know if someone is packing heat, ect. Same with the Sharingan. Copy the power the enemy is using is awesome yes, but a not often thought of perk is the bonus it would give to social situations. You effectively have perfect perception of their every movement. You can "read" their responses and body language in a way "normal" person could, that warrants a pretty good bonus to checks relating to that does it not? Also, you'd have to do is convince the rest of the party that you're worth holding on to and keeping alive, that you are in a very real sense an investment on their part. Keep you alive and one day, they will all have a valuable team player that, thanks to this power finally being unlocked, won't drag them down after the investment is made yet won't overshadow them completely. Plus, even if you are a good investment, they won't want to make it if you're "that guy". So even if the build is OP long run, you wouldn't leverage it too much because you would have convinced them all, even the GM, that you are "this guy". And honestly, you can trust "this guy" with most anything.
>>22782689Sorry, meant to say read responses and body language in a way normal people couldn't hope to.
>>22782470Sakura may or may not be the worst girl, however she is the personification of not knowing how to write(or draw) a female character.
If you just stripped away all the hundreds of bullshit I-win super moves from the Sharingan and pruned it back to the basic stuff it started with it would be a perfectly playable and very useful ability.
>>22782724also make the fucking tailed beasts a threat goddamnit. FFS they suck sometimes
>>22782724See also: Kakashi... at least up until he starts stealing other people's bullshit I-win super moves.
>>22782724And in doing that you have to remember the thing comes with a huge chakra cost, a guy is likely to spend something like half his chakra on it through a fight.
>>22782758yeah, that right there is the bush shit partThe tailed beast are supposed to be the Nuke of the ninja world. You don't use them. They're a threat to to dissuade others.You do not kick the ass of a nuke incarnate.
>>22782758Whats wrong, don't you find them SUPA SUPA KAWAII!?
>Son Goku>KuramaPlease tell me that's either fake or a gag translation.
>>22782550>TemariAre you fucking serious bro? Temari is just as bad as Sakura and Ino, all the girls in this show save Hinata and Shizune have one speed, horrible bitch.
>>22782784Thats only really for non-uchiha, Kakashi has trouble with it because he is a disgusting mud-blooded non-uchiha commoner
>>22782724Well, the bullshit Sharingan powers have a nasty cost to unlock and have a very serious drawback for each time they're used unless you can pay such a nasty price that most any player would kill you themselves before you even thought about it on basic principle.You'll never unlock Mangekyo Sharingan in a "Good" aligned party without some form of GM fiat and no "Evil" party would ever play with a Sharingan user because he's guaranteed to Player Kill one of them in his attempt to unlock it. It's BBEG Material, something all of them must work together to defeat, not something any of them could ever hope to possess outside of GM Fiat (and I fear for the party that requires that level of bullshit to even stand a chance of coming out of alive. You give them a chance, not a guarantee after all).>>22782809Indeed, that'd be the hardest thing to balance in any Naruto RPG. Much more so than the bloodline limits.
>>22782840Meant to reply to >>22782814
>>22782857Plus the fact he actually has low to average chakra capacity. He's just very good at efficiently using his limited resources. If he wasn't, the bullshit power would fuck him with every use.
>>22782859No, the Sharingan powers are absolute bullshit and ridiculous. They and the Uchiha wanked that bear them are the major cancer that killed Naruto.Though the fact the moral of of NAruto switched from "Hard work beats elites and genius" to "Eugenics are the only way to get ahead in life, and you better have some unique bullshit ha>< on top of that to be sure" is another part
>>22782857Not really, its just that uchiha also have fuckloads of chakra, its only like two times the chakra use for kakashi that it is for a normal uchiha. Plus the guys will be using up chakra not just on seeing things, but on casting illusions, which its good at, but still its like half their chakra all together in a fight. Maybe not half, but its still a big cost.
>>22782849>horrible bitch>implying that's not what's hot about her>not wanting to make her your good little obedient bitchWhat are you, a faggot?
>>22782931No, you are wrong.Kakshi's Sharingan is EXPLICITLY something he can't control well and drains massive amounts of his energy when its uncovered because he is not a natural member of the bloodline and instead having the eye itself surgically implanted.
>>22781324>>22781621>>22781754The fun thing is that the people in the thread are absolutely right. There is already a setting that does EXACTLY what Bleach does, but much better in every single way. You can run the setting straight up without retconning because the story isn't a clusterfuck and its at least ten times as interesting as Bleach.Just. From. Core.
>>22782918Regular Sharingan can be balanced, the Mangekyo version, not so much. To gimp it even more you could make the copy powers temporary. You only get them for so long before you forget them unless you spend XP to learn them (give them a bit of a bonus to it though as per my previous suggestion, unlocking it means gimping them *hard* for a good long while).>>22782958Indeed, when he resorts to it it's a major drain. If he doesn't end the fight soon after removing that patch he's not gonna make it. It's kind of like the Shroud of Martin in a sense. Become an absolute badass... with a terrible cost.
I have not seen or read Naruto since the dude on the bridge.Should...should I maybe...
>>22783024NoI only keep reading it because I'm not going to let it beat me
>people thinking the sharingan is the most OP thing in NarutoYou fuckers don't even know.
>>22782840You don't really understand how mythology in media works, do you?
Just play a game where we are all students of Guy-sensei, we sneak around like proper ninja and kick bitches in the fucking face when its time to fight.Using proper ninja-weapons and tools along with real strategy is also cool. (maybe we can can have a badass tactician like Shikamaru as part of the crew)
>>22782958Huh looking it up I am wrong. Anyway I was drawing from the scene where Sasuke is fighting Deidara and didn't have enough chakra left to use it to observe, but could still pull of a high level summon to get the fuck out, and lay a control genjutsu on it.
>>22783037That thing is a one off even in naruto, we have two cases in the entire history of the setting where it has existed, and one of them is the BBEG, it most clearly is not something any pc should ever get.
>>22783024It's a somewhat interesting story. If you can suspend your disbelief a good deal it's worth it for reference's sake I believe that if something is referenced enough you should probably watch it to know what other people are ripping off, just saying. Plus the music is actually pretty damn good IMO despite everything else I may complain about. Opinions may vary on the story and such, but the OST is great.>>22783037Yeah, that is quite simply some of the most bullshit I've ever seen. Hence why I didn't even try to balance it. You'd have to somehow survive from level 1 to level 20 without learning SHIT *and* not getting stronger AT ALL to justify it as balanced. Rinegan is bullshit GM FUCK YOU material. Yet, in an epic campaign, I could see it working if given to the BBEG.
>>22782997There are two actually, depending what parts of Bleach you wanna use.>>22783062Also, your teacher is ninja Bruce Lee, and that is awesome.
>>22783037The Sharingan is almost as broken as the ring eye...when the ring eye is meant to be the legendary one the Sharingan and Byakugan descended from... do you not see the problem here?And christ look at how neglected the Byakugan is, while the legendary eye has a bunch of powers to start with and the Sharingan was given a ridiculous number of broken abilities over time the Byakugan barely gets anything... and gives you gross looking head veins while active.
>>22782561Arrancars were a very natural and logical idea. Once you introduce these 13 Shinigami Captains and 13 Vice-Captains, they need a reasonable threat to oppose them (unless you want to take the SOUL SOCIETY CORRUPTION thing to its furthest extreme, but whatever).The Espadas were a very elegant 3-hit combo. Step 1: Introduce the idea of evolved Hollows, the Adjuchas and Vastro Lordes, and say that they rival the Captains in power, and that nobody knows how many of them there are because exploring their domains is too dangerous. 2) Match these forces up with the final boss, Aizen and his traitor Captains. Their powers are obviously superior, but still nebulous and ill-defined. 3) Through this combination create a new threat even greater than the individual parts, the Espadas and their servants the Fraccion, whose levels dwarf #1, are subservient to #2, and have superior numbers, the same powers as the heroes AND their own unique abilities on top of all those advantages.Plus, they serve the purpose of fleshing out the "third world," of the setting. Adding some organization and "humanity," to Hueco Mundo was much needed in terms of Bleach's completeness as a storytelling base.The only real problem with the whole situation was the power creep involved and lacking elegance in the storytelling.
>>22783096>the music is actually pretty damn goodYeah, this is true.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urRQN2VIcmU
>>22783065>>Sasuke is fighting Deidara and didn't have enough chakraAnon, that is known as impossible bullshit -aka- plot-fiat.Sasuke should literally not have been capable of pulling that off but Kishimoto had him do it anyway
>>22783087Three cases actually, Madara, the real Madara that is, had it in addition to his sharingan.
>>22783096After reading this I looked this up for nostalgia's sake:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWx5EJWonmcThis actually makes me want to watch it again.
>>22783097I was thinking about the whole "death gods hunting "ghosts""Never read YuYu
>>22783100Mangekyo is, normal version, I beg to disagree. It lets you copy ninjutsu and see body movement so perfectly that you can easily predict what they're about to do, but it can't fucking RESURRECT THE DEAD and other such bullshit. Thus, normal version can be balanced somehow, but beyond that I say it wouldn't work unless the rest of the party was uttterly dedicated to getting this one guy godlike power. He'd have to be "This Guy" incarnate to pull that off. In which case, I want to read that story. "This Guy" is one hell of a hard guy to find.
>>22783123Yea, but he made it look different. Plus its not like I follow naruto that closely, I read it because it comes out at the same time as one piece each week, and so its there. And say what you will about one piece, but its a fun read.>>22783133Madara gave his to Pain, that is where pain got it, counts as one instance. When he was talking to Obito while in the cave, he didn't have it, as he had already given it away.
>>22783097Bleach went from "Yu Yu Hakusho" to "DBZ with swords". That sums it up almost perfectly.
If you want to do a Naruto setting its best you just retcon everything after the Chuunin exams. That's when the series turned to complete shit.
>>22783003There was nothing innately overpowered about the Magenkyo Sharingan when it was first introduced. It had one instant win technique (a Genjutsu at that, nothing too destructive and easily blocked at the cost of a crippling disadvantage) and one more general offensive ability that, while potent (infinite, unquenchable black fire) was hardly overpowered.It only got stupid when it got a million other powers like the ultimate fucking invincible bone shield, perfect time-space control, teleportation, etc.
>>22783203>When he was talking to Obito while in the caveWait what? Wasn't he dead until Kabuto resurrected him? Did Kishimoto shit the bed or what?
>>22783173I never really much liked anime OP's and ED's, I can't into Japanese. I meant the stuff that plays during the actual show. Fun Fact: The composer for the "Shippuden" soundtrack also did the work for the ost of "Fairy Tail". Now that's some great Irish Folk Metal IMO.>>22783216Pretty much. It all went downhill after the Soul Society arc.
>>22783277>after theDuring anon, during.
>>22783216You want something you'll never be able to unsee? Rukia is Botan. A shinigami who exists within the plot to first get the protagonist started down the path of being a Japanese Ghostbuster, then to give him jobs. You will now forever read Rukia's dialogue in an English accent.>>22783277Oh fuck yeah, bagpipes are the single most metal non-electric instrument.
>>22783173Naruto is pretty good until the chuunin exams end. Nothing wrong with wanting to watch that.
>>22783277In the case of Wind, that's all Engrish. REALLY thick Engrish. Like, damn near Red Fraction level. Well no. That's a lie. NOTHING is as thick of Engrish as Red Fraction. Except maybe anything else by Mell.
>>22783325>Rukia is BotanMuch better girl from much better manga/anime right here doing the exact same thing.She also stays relevant for the entire manga.
>>22783295I'm a forgiving guy in my fiction. I know author's aren't perfect and can fuck up every now and then so I forgave his shortcomings up to that point. But the period after that arc... Yeah, he wasn't just fucking up now and then, he was just plain fucking up. Still, I must give credit where credit is due even if it disgusts me.>>22783325I know right? Those bagpipes fit the mood of the series completely. And they mesh so well with an epic guitar solo.
>>22783367Goddamnit augh. Here.
>>22783277There was nothing wrong with the Arrancars Attack The City arc. Even parts of the Mexico arc were pretty good, though the quality of that story was a long roller coaster of highs and lows.After Grimmjow was defeated things got pretty awful, though even then there were a few very occasional good parts all the way through Aizen's defeat, though they got fewer and further between. Things never recovered after the timeskip though. Fullbring arc was awful and Quincy Nazis are dumb as hell too.
>>22783332Oh wait, is that the part where the sand guy fights the ADHD guy and sand guy is all like whatever and the ADHD guy is all FIGHTING SPIRIT and then he takes off his Dragonball Z weighted clothes? I think I saw that.
>>22783383Now that was a good series. Too bad it got canceled before it had the chance to get really good. The Firefly of Shounen it seems.
I've always thought Naruto can make an amazing setting; it has interesting tech, a mixture of spiritual and magic that integrate with the real world in relatively interesting ways, and a clan/caste system that appeals to me on many levels, as well as the whole kekkai genki thing. The main problem I've had with it is the art style/aesthetic is generic ninja-stuff until about..was it the Pein Arc that really introduced some cool concepts? I think it was. Or Killer Bee. If you could really focus on some of that kind of stuff, it could be easily usable. Hell, my main problem is that Naruto isn't used as well as he could be; he's an interesting character until the end of the Zabuza arc, then it just goes in as predictable ways as it could go. His obsession with Sasuke as well. getting rid of Madara entirely would also improve it as a whole.
>>22783428I'm pretty sure Buso Renken was a complete series. I don't think it was canceled, it just had a relatively short but complete story.
>>22783428Blame the fact that Xebec never does second seasons. The manga finished, although it was rather short at ten volumes, iirc.
>>22783277>I never really much liked anime OP's and ED'sOh and just for thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAqVIjxwyzc>>22783410Those are the chuunin exams yeah. Culminating with Sasuke turning into a finger demon (do we even see that ever again?) they do a really shitty fight and Sasuke runs away.Then Naruto turns to shit.>>22783428It was pretty much the perfect length. I'm glad it doesn't have more chapters. Everything wrapped up nicely. I doubt it was canceled.
So anyways guys Sharingan takes a fuckload of exp to unlock, Mangekyo takes GM fiat and its power is worked out with the GM, with super high cost. Like how Shisui Uchiha's Kotoamatsukami had a ten year waiting period between each use(per eye).
>>22783477I would think gradually going blind would be a pretty good drawback to Mangekyo abilities that can activate more frequently like Tsukiyomi.
>>22783410Fuck you Rock Lee is awesome, should have stomped sandboy. That bit where he teleported out of a combo when Lee took his eyes off him for one second was nonsense.
>>22783477>>22783509Just retcon the fact that more than one kind of sharingan exists.
>>22783509True and that they come with a two to four uses total in any given situation, and using it leaves you pretty useless later, and basically dead if you use it to your limit.
>>22783521An thus we see the beginnings of Rock Lee's long and successful career as a Jobber.
>>22783521>should haveLee has the unfortunate luck of always going against someone that has a hard counter for his abilities.
>>22781732It's sorta like no one knows LotW and wants to talk animu.
>>22783529I dunno. You could, instead of retcon more than one, make it so each Sharingan is unique to the individual; i.e. Obito's has an ability or can do something Itachi's cannot, et a..That and just get rid of Rinnegan altogether, because that shit was just painful to listen to, explanation wise. Or at least revamp it so it isn't as goddamned ridiculous as it is.
>>22783474Well I can get them when I'm blitzed, but not when sober. For me, it ain't good unless I like it sober.>>22783477Now you're getting my intention. There is always a way to balance a power, the real question is, is the player, and even more importantly, the whole party, willing to pay the cost for you to acquire it? It's like in AdEva, the "Cold Blooded" trait is awesome as all hell, but do you really think the dice love you enough to have you survive the "Touched by an Angel" encounter without losing it so hard you'd need that advantage to even stand a chance at surviving until the end of the campaign?
>>22783577Well I think Rinnegan should be limited to being the singular historical case of the sage of six paths.
>>22783577>You could, instead of retcon more than oneI didn't even know there was more than one, but I know that it was already grossly overpowered in its original form and that anything more should really just be removed for balance purposes.Or maybe you dont remember old no mouth one eye spiky white hair sensei copying fucking every move because he had it.
>>22783410In case you feel like rewatching that one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bdFYrfjcRQ
A ways back I wrote a blurb on Bleach.http://www.mediafire.com/?egw7axxabfpgriwMaybe I should attempt de-stupifying Naruto one day.
>>22783629Why bother? Its easy to de-stupidify both settings by going back to before they went to shit.I mean unless you just want to have your dick sucked for attention whoring your opinion out.
>>22783615That never made any goddamn sense to me. It was like 'but he only has ONE EYE. This doesn't seem possible, even for a jounin to accomplish.' I always figured you had to have both eyes to copy every jutsu you came across, but it would ALWAYS cost you something to copy one; maybe you lose memories or jutsu's the more you copy, as your brain can't remember every single jutsu you've ever copied. It felt like that would be an easier to take trade-off than 'I can copy everything because I have the eye!' bullshit. Like, what? Then why doesn't anyone else fucking do it, if you can do it with just ONE EYE?
>>22783577It was pretty much just the scale of the rinnegan's abilities that was ridiculous, drop the power level a bit and it would be fine for a player, just with heavy xp adjustments like the sharingan. If you think about it there were like, one or two things it could do that hadn't been previously displayed by other ninjas, it could just do those things to a much greater degree than when those powers were displayed by others. In universe wise this was balanced by the fact that the rinnegan was so rare that people that hadn't personally seen it thought it was just a myth.
>>22781206I don't understand what's supposed to be going on in that image. Is flypaper attached to an ass supposed to be sexy? Why is she biting scissors?
Didn't you need to kill someone to get Sharingan as well?>>22783662To make it simple and not emo just have them not remember it after a while or forget what they copied if they copy something new.
>>22783615Maybe think of it another way. Its not about how many techs they can copy, its about what they as a character can do.Certain jutsu requires skill level of such and such to do. PC does not have that level in that skill, they can't use that jutsu. Then have other jutsu that are just about impossible to copy, the shadow based jutsu of Shikamaru and the nara clan were never copied by kakashi or an uchiha, despite being really really fucking useful. These are Hiden jutsu in the manga, basically secret jutsu, give such really useful or otherwise difficult techniques a tag of "Hiden", meaning can not be stolen.
>>22783708To get the mangekyo you supposedly have to kill your best friend, to correct the progressive blindness disadvantage of the mangekyo you have to find someone else that also has a mangekyo and replace your eyes with theirs.
>>22783800Not just any mangekyo, they have to have the same mangekyo you do.
>>22783757THIS. Do you guys not remember Sasuke's first fight with Lee? He could analyze Lee's attack, but his body couldn't do anything about it. He could duplicate Lee's movements in theory, but his body wasn't capable of that due to the lack of training and so he had to adapt it into the Lion Combo.You don't have to put a bunch of dumb bullshit pathos limiters like MEMORY LOSS on the Sharingan to balance it. It's balanced as long as the character using it is balanced. Kakashi knew a bajillion stolen moves because he was at the furthest possible extreme of natural skill even among other geniuses. Itachi would have that shit too, except he's even better than that so he doesn't give two shits about using pussy shit like giant water dragons or whatever a "lesser" ninja like Kakashi needs to keep up.There's plenty of things that are broken in Naruto, don't go fixing one of the things that aren't.
>>22782814I think someone is trying to sell plushies...
>>22783800No, you have to kill a blood relative who has also unlocked the Sharingan and replace your eyes with his. Basically, you have to backstab your own brother/sister, rip his/her eyes out, and put them into your own now empty sockets. I mean, it just doesn't get much more grimdark than that... You have to fuck your own family over, HARD.
>>22783757Now I only remember this because my brain is stupid and remember these minute details, but what he did was copy the movement "rituals" needed to cast the spells. That's why he could copy. So things without a hand ritual or whatever is obviously beyond reach to copy.>>22783864This too.
>>22783800That is how you unlock the mangekyo yes, but to cancel out the drawback of going blind you have to do what I said in >>22783883.
>>22783883>it just doesn't get much more grimdark than that>next post has an image that is way more grimdark in context
>>22783918>Soul Eater>that whole Medusa and Crono thingjesus christ, I genuinely felt sorry for Crono. It's horrifying in context.
>>22783883It is implied you don't so much replace your eyes with theirs, as combine your eyes and theirs. Otherwise you could do stuff like trade eyes, which would be a pretty cool thing for brothers, if it wasn't for the prerequisite for getting the thing in the first place.
You know what would make for an amazing setting? Hunter X Hunter.>dose creatures>dat unexplored world>dem sophisticated and consistent nen-powers.>>22781469Seriously, what bothered me the most about Naruto is that it just... fucked over its own chakra-powers after the time skip. The author just adds stuff whenever necessary without foreshadowing anything.
>>22783949I don't think there's any combination involved. The transplant is to fight the blindness.They've already shown that Uchiha do all sorts of dumb shit with their eyes and the fact that they are such a hate-filled clan of retards with angsty, grimderp, self-destructive behaviors practically genetically ingrained in every member, except Itachi, they probably just could trade eyes with one another and help each other out, but instead, they decide that killing is far easier. The thought of helping each other and making a reasonable decision probably never even crossed their minds.For fuck's sake, I wouldn't even be surprised if it turned out that the transplant had nothing to do with it and that each member could attain the highest level of Sharingan, as long as they weren't total retards, which is, of course, impossible for most Uchihas!Can you imagine what a meaningful gesture it could have been for Uchiha comrades to exchange eyes? How fucking intense would that be to say to your best bro, "We shall trade eys so we may both become more powerful for the sake of our mutual goals!"
>>22783993Only thing I knwo about HxH is the seven days lover doujin.>meanwhile the Naruto archetype in Soul Eater
>>22783993The thing they fucked over was the protagonist.All the way up until about last year, it was all, "I'm just a normal, hard-working retard who doesn't need bloodline powers or legendary destinies to guide me forward! I'm gonna power through and do the impossible and people will respect me more because I'm not riding some magical, genetic coat tails!" Then it turns out, "Nope! You're essentially Harry Potter and you've got the blood of Legendary, ultra special, one of a kind, unique ninjas in your veins that make you good at all the things you do, Naruto! No go turn super Saiyan and beat the bad guy because you went and did a hyperbolic time chamber training session!"
>>22783662>Like, what? Then why doesn't anyone else fucking do it, if you can do it with just ONE EYE?Because you'd have to rip eyes out of Uchiha clan members, and they won't fucking stand for it?Because the Uchiha do it a fuckton more efficiently than Kakashi does?Really, those two put a stop to it already.
>>22784023I thought the whole "You have to kill the other side and take their eyes by force if you want a perfect Sharingan," was a self-imposed tradition because Uchiha's have a warped view of the true meaning of strength. Which is what the entire basis of their conflict with the First Hokage's clan was and why they assented to the founding of Konoha when Madara lost the fight at the Valley of the End.For all the other dumb crap revolving around the TRUE HISTORY OF THE UCHIHA, that part seemed legit enough.
>>22784023>Can you imagine what a meaningful gesture it could have been for Uchiha comrades to exchange eyes? How fucking intense would that be to say to your best bro, "We shall trade eys so we may both become more powerful for the sake of our mutual goals!"Yes, and that shit would be awesome. However tobi wanted as many eyes as he could get, but apparently has done nothing with Sauske's eyes, if he still has them, which I think implies he doesn't have them anymore.Course this is Kishimoto, he appears to work on half logic, in that he only gets half way through thinking of the repercussions of any thing he includes.Course even if you do combine eyes there is still a way for both brothers to have the full power whatever, and that is you each only take one eye from your brother. Leaving you each short one eye, but with godly power in the other.
>>22784072As has been said. Retcon anything after chuunin exams.
>>22784072Changing up the eye thing... That would really turn Sasuke around as a character.Instead of just not killing him, Itachi trades eyes with young Sasuke before he's ready. Sasuke is left with the immense, uncontrollably powerful eyes of a ninja far more skilled than he is for most of his life. Despite all of his elite prodigy training, he can barely control the sharingan he's been burdened with and has to struggle to understand why his brother would burden him with a power like that, and how Itachi could still go on to be an ultra dangerous Missing-Nin, even with only his unawakened eyes.Fuck, now I'm writing Naruto Fanfiction here.
>>22784033You should read it. It's amazing. Also it's only like 340 chapters.
>>22784086I wouldn't say anything after the exams, medical jutsu don't even exist before them.
>>22784046... Did you forget he is a goddamn Jinchuriki? Whole strongest demon ever that hooks him up with his chakra...
>>22784122I'm pretty sure we can >imply that they exist. It doesnt have to be direct canon to be in a setting.
>>22784127If you remember, Naruto's original burden was not relying on the Nine-tails because it hated him so hard that his chakra, when released, would slowly kill Naruto and destroy his body. On top of that, when he lost his shit, he was a danger to everyone around him, since the initial thing with have a giant fucking demon in you meant that if he lost control, that a giant fucking demon would take over and wreck everything like it did before.Just because they suddenly made the Kyuubi calm and cooperative in the most recent chapters doesn't change that it wanted to eat Naruto from the inside out originally.
>>22784142True but there are other things that just don't show up until later that you would have to infer actually existed. Kishimoto is pretty bad at world building to tell the truth, or at least he has been bad at conveying the world.Now removing all, or nearly all the powers after the exams is pretty good, but its not a before this everything is good, after it everything is bad.
>>22784150No I am with you on that, I prefer the whole evil demon thing a lot better but he always had an out, and he was kinda OP to begin with. The bridge arc kinda cemented that fact.
>>22784150I don't think the Kyuubi chakra was corrosive unless he used it at the 2-tails+ level. Naruto has superhuman healing a lot of the time as a matter of fact as I recall.
>>22784187No it starts at 1 actual tail so long as he has on the actual fox cloak it is hurting him, each tail ups how much it hurts him. As for healing, fox does some of it, as the fox doesn't want him his host to die, as that would kill him too, and its a trait of the Uzumaki clan to heal fast.
>>22784127>>22784150Soul Eater does both no special bloodline and evil demons at the same time.[/spoilerThe Naruto equivalent is literally GUTS AND HARD WORK FOREVER.
>>22784240>>22784253Black*Star is a fucking moron. And I love him for it.
>>22784240Actually soul eater does have special bloodlines, almost all of the meisters are, and there is the star clan that Black*Star is from, which makes him above average. And every demon weapon is a member of a special bloodline, because being a demon weapon is apparently a genetic trait.Course being a member of a special bloodline in naruto makes you superhuman, while being one in soul eater makes you a pc.
>>22784274He's basically Naruto done right. Like literally, this is what Naruto should have been and never became.
>>22784187Could really be argued that going into a murderous berserker rage really isn't all that beneficial unless he's only got one target to aim his rage at.In addition, the point was that Naruto was the sort of guy that wasn't a natural born prodigy who had the best training and tutors. He wasn't originally part of some legendary bloodline that automatically gave him powers. He wasn't a well-liked popular guy that the girls cheered for and the adults urged onward.He was a bratty punk who had to train his ass off just to keep from getting held back a grade and he had a big dream that he was going to accomplish by working hard and proving that he didn't need any of that shit to achieve his goals.Then it turns out that was all a bunch of shit and he secretly had a billion times as much chakra as everyone else, his dad was the hokage, his mom was from some bullshit bloodline that could tame the most powerful demon in the world, and he is some sort of chakra controlling savant, just because.
>>22784320>almost all of the meisters areTo be fair, that could be a "We don't want to drag too many regular old clueless humans into this shit than we have to, especially when there are plenty of people who are born into this crazy secret world." thing.
>>22784351Eh, read soul eater not. Its a light hearted version of the setting for the most part, but it goes into this a bit. Apparently if you want to be in politics in a number of countries in the world you have to attend and graduate from shibusen. So its hardly a secret, it is however a very demanding school, even if you are in the lower end classes.
>>22784320There's actually a manga called Soul Eater NOT which focuses on characters that are not powerful. The class in Soul Eater has been explained to be a special "super achiever" class. NOT is basically just showing the world without the insane powerlevels.So basically yea, special boodlines make you a PC, but there's also non-special bloodline PCs.And pretty much all of Black*Star's power comes from his own training. Its Tsubaki that comes from a super special powerful bloodline. Black*Star just got the alienation and disgust of people because of the clan he was from. Rest is all him.
I'd just remove the Tailed Demons and the whole Sage thing, leave it as a semi-realistic world with superpowered creatures inside it.Then Naruto can be a spunky retard with some big boots to fill Which was kind of the story anyways I mean geeze two blonde people in the whole show I wonder if they're connected at all... NAW Yes I know Yamanakas are blonde shut up though I only have these opinions because someone already did it in Five Nations and I have hindsight bias god damn it I can't stop staring at Sakura's ass
>>22784324Wait a minute! When the hell did Death the Kid turn evil!? Man I need to catch up on that manga.
>>22784438Its even shown on his character design he is the only character that looks like he even lifts and has visible muscle because of constant training CONSTANT
>>22784447Aww fucked up the spoilers, can you only do two layers or something?
>>22784452That was temporary, due to SPOILERS.
>>22784452Cthulhu is one hell of a drug
>>22784240>>22784438Fuck, my backlog is too long already. This isn't one of those thousand-chapter mangas, is it?
>>22784509A little over a hundred volumes currently, if memory serves.
My group tried to do a Naruto campaign at one point and one of us had the rinnengan. It wasn't the bullshit super revive Nagato had though. He had Deva path's gravity manipulation, scaled to his level. When we first started out he only had a weak push/pull attack that took 3 turns to recharge instead of 3 seconds. I know 3 turns isn't actually a lot of time, but a lot can happen in it as far as PnPs go
>>22784525Nope. Little over a hundred chapters, 23 volumes and four recent ones that haven't been collected yet.
>>22784525Did I read that right? A hundred /volumes/? As in, the things that are physical books, with lots and lots of chapters in them?
Okay, fuck it, if I wanted to run a Soul Eater based game (and now I have to get caught up, thanks to you assholes), would Mutants and Masterminds be a good system to use?>>22784608You read right but he typed wrong. See >>22784574 it's 106 chapters to be precise.
>>22784608No. 23 volumes. It's no Detective Conan.
>>22784608>>22784618Also with most manga there's about six Chapters in a Volume.
>>22784509106 so far and its probably ending soon.Anime is good until it goes off track after a fight in a winter environment.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThW2Z05ru5shttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfTrxiT7_ZMBest thing about it is that while it has all of these serious moments and serious storylines it never really forgets its own essence of fun.
>>22784661>being forced to wield Excalibur>never actually fighting because of all the rules
>>22783993Though I never finished it, I found HxH to be fascinating. It has elements from nearly ever major shonnen manga/anime ever, but mixes it around into something wholly original.The ki stuff is a mix between One Piece's haki and the sword power stuff from Bleach.The protagonist is unbelievably generic, almost a clone of Goku from the early Dragon Ball, but then gets turned around and actually gets how to deal with people. He's trusting, but only because of his "you really think you'll win if you betray me" mentality.The blonde kid is Sasuke, but likeable somehow. His relationship with his family threatened to turn the series into another crappy Naruto/Sasuke-who-gives-a-fuck series, but then his family just up and decides that he should be free to live his own life and they go off on adventures.That group of assassins/thieves had its own Akatsuki thing going on, turned to 11 because other-Sasuke (the red-eyed person I totally thought was a chick for over 100 chapters) had the exact same revenge thing going on (replacing Itachi with the whole gang), but then red-eyed guy totally handled it like a boss and nothing happened like I expected.Every time I think he's going somewhere generic and boring with the plot he laughs at my expectations and does something different. I've never seen a work of fiction of any type that was that good at manipulating the genre, which changed my opinion from hat to love and back again so frequently, or which... I don't even know, it's such a jigsaw of borrowed elements that I feel like I should hate it, but I can't.I stopped reading when not-Cell showed up and started wrecking shit, but only because I started working while taking classes again.That series boggles my mind.
>>22784574Well that's alright then. Now to find the scanlator's site and add it to my backlog folder to be read when the moon turns blue.
>shounen mangaJust one more thing /tg/ is best at.
>>22784704Hahahaha no man no
>>22784691The ants were bad, but I won't fault the guy. They were only bad for him, they weren't bad if you compared it to naruto, and the guy has health issues and stuff that were causing him problems, and the end of it was actually kind of cool. Can't be easy to make great work when you are sick.
>>22784704Because we see it as a story and possiblities for our own games, as settings, as slates where we can write and sketch our characters. And change often bullshit story of original writer who burned himself with constant upgrading powerlevels or something like that.Shonen manga is "let's go and have adventures in this strange big world of possibilities" for me basically.
>>22784704>try to post idontevenneedotherboardsanymore.jpg>duplicate file entry>Berserk threadI love /tg/.
>>22784771I didn't dislike the ants, or anything, it's just that my grades were slipping and I to buckle (at work and at school) down if I wanted to keep my funding.Then I kind of forgot about it, and by the time I wanted to pick it up again I realized I'd been away too long and would have to start over again to catch up, which is intimidating with a series that long; and the longer I wait the harder it will be to start again.The same thing happened with my favorite series, One Piece. My usual reading style for that was to read it from the beginning, get the the current chapters, then take a break for a few months and start over (slowly). Now the series is so damn long I can't bring myself to start over, but I don't remember where I left off.
>>22784814And yea, I did kind of burn out on the ants thing. Still a good series, though.
>>22784771The ant arc gets better the longer it goes on, and when rereading it, it's actually even better.Also I love how the author references the earliest chapters in the guards' abilities.There was a hypnotic butterfly in the swamp of the first volume.There is a mythical beast that is a shapeshifter in the first volume too.
>>22784807I'm not sure what I should be more unsettled by. The fact that Black*Star makes a really hot chick, or the fact that I'd still fuck Tsubaki.
>>22784836A short tomboy with a toned body and short hair? Who wouldn't want him?
>>22784836>not doing both and Eiffel Towering FemBlack*StarGaaaaaaaaay.
Another thing he has in common with Naruto their female selves are SMOKING HOT
>>22784836More for you.
>>22784930scandi master race
>>22784902>bossy little princessMy boner.
>>22784618>would Mutants and Masterminds be a good system to use?I think it would be doable, but I am not intricately aware of how MnM would work like this. Weapons need some Alternate Form, inherent abilities, etc. and Meisters are going to need to accomodate the weapon's properties. The biggest challenge lies in the fact that its a symbiotic relationship between those two. Each player may want to actually play two characters to make it more interesting.
>>22784618>>22785346 M&M should be able to handle it. I'm not exactly sure how'd you handle the weapons and meisters, either, but I think it would work. I know the Mecha and Mange supplement had a pokemon trainer archetype; maybe whatever system they used for that would work here?
I..I just wanted feed back on Legends of the Wulin.I didn't mean to start all this
>>22787289I would say that Legends of the Wulin wouldn't be a good system to run the Naruto setting in. On the other hand, it would be an excellent system to a setting with a lot of similarities to the Naruto setting.
>>22783461Nah, it was cancelled, the author begged for the chance of giving it a resolution and another magazine gave him two 80 page chapters to wrap it up. Though I do agree that it's not so bad that it ended when it did. I really disliked the bronzenigger development Kazuki went through.
>>22782550>>22782516>>22782507>>22782721>>22782849>>22782934I'm sorry all your waifus are shit-tier
>>22787539That being said, I am annoyed that the thing with the male twin never really went anywhere in the comic. It felt like a possible future rival/friendly enemy development in the works, and I was disappointed that the series ended an arc after. I suppose it's better he never went Full Sasuke, but still it was a lot of foreshadowing for a dead end. At least his sister showed up a lot later on.
>>22787625You talking shit bout my waifu, son?
>>22787539Still better than the Mx0 situation.
The best part of Naruto is the porn
>>22787682You son of a bitch! Why do you have to tear open old wounds like that. Fuck.
>>22787708I live on shattered dreams.Everything that I enjoy is yet another broken promise.Be it Assassin's Creed sequels or Universe at War, Mechcommander (Seriously, if you have only played one of the two games, you should never play the other. Because then you will hate to play both) or Earth 21X0 or Rise of Legends or the Yumekui Merry anime or F-Zero or Space Siege...I have an endless list of titles that I love that are either failed attempts at something or made a promise that has been broken - Either by neglect or through real fuckups. Assassin's Creed will never get a sequel that isn't GTA with assassins, for example. Universe at War will never become the franchise that it could have been. Space Siege could have been a fuckawesome game. And Earth 2160 will forever end on a cliffhanger...
>>22783617Thanks for not making me watch a shitty AMV anon, I really loved you thre.
About the uchiha. Madara sits on a cave with sasuke and tells him the true story of the clan as means of manipulating. You think to yourself: that its a pretty derp story, that guy is twisting it around, but no. It's just dumb as fuck.
>>22787678>oh man, I haven't watched Naruto in ages and shit, I wonder how->this pic
>>22787868Your waifu won the Naruto dick prize by the way.
>>22787678Yeah, your waifu is moe pleb-tier shit.
>>22787289There is nothing wrong with wanting to use such systems to run a game of Naruto.For Legends of the Wulin, the big hurdle is working out how to handle all of the clearly supernatural creatures that have, and have had, such a huge impact on the setting. You will have to write a LOT of custom Lore Sheets, but by understanding their use and the applications of Destiny and Entanglement, pretty much everything should fall into place eventually.
>>22787893Not really my waifu, but I always liked here when I was watching Naruto. And she won what now?
>>22787846I feel pity for anyone still taking Naruto seriously.It's really fucking obvious that the author has given up long ago and only writing because it prints money.Hell, most of the plot twists are so ludicrious that I can't believe that anyone would buy that shit. Though Kishimito is probably thinking the same thing.He could literally shit on a page and the people would buy it.Seriously, how do the fans stand bullshit like Sasuke doing an insanely difficulty and energy consuming summon at LITERALLY NO CHAKRA? Fuck, he even stated so himself.>Shit, I don't have any more energy to pull off flashy moves>Well then, time for one of the flashiest moves among flashy moves because that will surely helpAnd then it works.It's like your pistol being out of ammo, so you shoot a missile that doesn't even exist on your body.
>>22787935See >>22782563That actually happens
>>22787946So Naruto finally reacted to her confession?
>>22787946Well, I dropped shortly after Shit-uuden started. Mind telling me in which chapter/episode it happened?I want to see how that shit got down.
>>22787938>Still>Taking Naruto seriously in any point in timeThe manga/anime kinda had potential that died down the fucking second they pulled a Tournament arc after two heartfell characters deaths and plunged into Status Quo shonen bullshit never to return.It's the worst of the big three and that is saying something.
>>22787966Spoilers:Neji died protecting Naruto while the latter was recovering his chakra. Obito tried to get Naruto to give up cause blahblahblahfutileyaddayadda but Hinata literally slapped some sense into him.And then they held hands
>>22787966more like Neji died protecting hinata and gave naruto a "give her the dick" speech before biting it. Lots of people cry over a relatively minor character dying, the Madaras give no shits, but pause the war to let everyone say how awesome neji was.
>>22787994It's the worst of the big three if Toriko is the thirdIf you're still including Bleach, then you're wrong, because Bleach took a long dive down the shitter right around the time the stupid redheaded tart got kidnapped and is wallowing there forevermore.Naturo at least had that one bit in Shippuden when Shikamaru did something
>>22787994>It's the worst of the big three and that is saying something.I'd say it's a draw with Fairy Tail.Then again, Fairy Tail at least has fanservice, if nothing else.The author of that manga should do a crossover with TLR...
>>22788027>Naturo at least had that one bit in Shippuden when Shikamaru did somethingAnd don't forget Killer Bee.
>>22787994It's not saying much at all cause One Piece is amazing.
>>22787994Bleach is far worse on every conceivable level.
>>22788019Oh shit I want to see that.
>>22788040>One Piece>amazingIts nothing but puns, (bad) fanservice, and shouting. Add in "running" to the last few chapters.
>>22788061Its not as good as you'd imagine.Its more like... character development out of nowhere.
>>22788061http://www.manga-access.com/manga/N/Naruto/chapter/614/15Starts here, goes into next chapter
>>22788039Oh yes, that was amazingAlso the only point since well before the timeskip that Sasuke was used right (That is to say, he tried as hard as he possibly could to keep his dignity and failed miserably)Ugh, that's the one thing that really pisses me off about Nartuo,Sasuke is clearly a character designed entirely for comedy, so why isn't he used that way?
>>22788066It's literally the best selling manga of all time
>>22781206damnit now i have to go to /h
>>22788066AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAOOOOoohhh that's good.What's really hilarious though is that even if that was true, it would still be a whole lot better than Naruto or Bleach. Which is kind of sadAlso a better RPG setting. Which is something we should probably get back to discussing
>>22788093So was Dragonball, the comic its piggybacking off of. Doesn't change the fact that they aren't very good, just shows that they're very popular.>>22788103dohohohoho thats cute, that you think those three are so different.
>>22788217Oda is actually considered a prodigy in the industry
>>22788217If you really think that they're so similar, I get the feeling you haven't read much of them, or at least haven't read much of One Piece. Considering that while Bleach and Naruto converge as they go along One piece divergesfrom both of them
>>22788217One Piece has outsold Dragon Ball quite a few times over.It is hands down, no argument, indisputably the best selling and most popular series in Japan right now. You can't walk into most shops without finding some One Piece related merchandise.You know why America hasn't really caught onto the craze was because Funimation royally screwed the pooch and butchered the series when it aired it, permanently turning most people off the show because of squirt guns and "GOTTA GO GOTTA GO" rap song intros.
>>22788569That was 4kidsThe Funimation dub is amazing
>>22788601Whoops. I meant 4kids, but yeah. Funimation did a far better job, but it's too little too late.
I like Naruto, Bleach and One Piece. Come at me!
>>22788712Do not want.
>>22788673Nothing wrong with that, I suppose.Although, I'm curious how you can enjoy Bleach. So very little happens each chapter and the art is often very undetailed and almost offensively minimalistic.
>>22788798I keep saying the same thing about every comic in Jump.
>>22788890You don't read a whole lot of manga, do you?
>>22788907I did. And saw the glaring flaws so many of them repeated. The so-called "big three" are the greatest offenders.
>>22783550Someone's gotta be jobber to the stars, man.
>>22788954Let's see you do a weekly with executives screaming at you and fucking shit up every month. Being a mangaka is a thankless job.
>>22788954gee, a bunch of comics published by the same company in the same magazine all follow the same basic guidelines of producing popular content? go figure.
>>22784033Hey, there was at least one truly badass character in that one. Pic related.
>>22787625my favorite girls from the series were anko and temari.And /tg/ loves them!I love /tg/ !More on Naruto.. Have you ever read 666 Satan?Its made by kishimoto brother and has exactly the same story as Naruto.ANd it already ended
>>22783708Normal Sharinagn (if you're an uchiha) will first manifest in a life-threatening situation.
>>22783112https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9LswXpoD8wThis too.Something I'd expect to hear in a film by Zhang Imou, not here.
>>22784033>meanwhile the Naruto archetype in Soul EaterThat's the point.He's a piss take of the average narutoesque arsehole, just as Kid is a piss take of the archetypal stoic.
I haven't read or watched Naruto in a year or two, just want to know two things:Tell me Naruto doesn't end up with Sakura - bitch deserves to be alone forever.Tell me Sasuke gets put in a body bag - if he pulls a Darth Vader or returns to the light side or some shit, then my only regret in life will have been not stopping sooner.
>>22795769So far Sakura still gets wet with Sasuke, Hinata confessed, Naruto hasn't given much of an answer yet.Sasuke is alive and resurrected Orochimaru (and got him outside of himself?) because reasons. He remains a douchebag if that wasn't clear.
>>22795984I dunno, the last two chapters seem to imply naruto is definitely hooking up with hinata.In any case this final story arc is dragging on way too long, I'm ready for it to be done.
>>22795758Let's be honest, god damn EVERYTHING in Soul Eater is a piss take of SOMETHING. Sometimes even of ITSELF.That's what I love about it.
>>22796151I hear that, brother.
>>22781782Not dead. We're on the verge of our final build.
Regarding bloodlines, I feel I should point out that at one point (in volume 4 IIRC) Maka asks Black Star how he can be so strong with just weight training and he says it's due to his bloodline.
>>22796311His bloodline sets the glass ceiling for him really high, he still needs to work to reach it though
>>22796051So naruhina is canon? mfw.
>>22781596What's amusing is that the jackass dumping manga all over the place did it all over again - down to the same fucking images.
>>22797405You're not talking shit about Seki are you?
>>22797213It's not yet, but it's definitely ahead of narusaku
>>22798242Narusaku is for fucking plebeians.
>>22798304Did I imply otherwise?
>>22798353No, just stated indisputable fact.
So people who are still reading it...is Rock Lee still getting shafted in all things?
>>22798398He just kicked Madara in half in the last panel of the newest chapter.Of course madara is a corpse that will regenerate because that's how that resurrect shit works.
>>22798366Oh, carry on then
>>22798419>Rock Lee got to actually win a fightHe's gonna die in the next chapter. Rock Lee is the ultimate Jobber, there's only one reason to let a Jobber win, and that's to get the audience to actually be SURPRISED by them going right back to Jobbing.
>>22798444asn't so much a fight as it was 'entire army bum rushes Madara and Obito while hopped up on demon chakra'
>>22798444>Rock Lee is the ultimate Jobber,this is the ultimate bullshit in Naruto.
>>22798444NO, WE JUST LOST NEJI, DON'T TAKE ROCK LEE TOO!
>>22798475Indeed. Especially considering that MIGHT GUY IS ALSO A FUCKING TAIJUTSU SPECIALIST, AND HE HAS ONLY LOST A SINGLE FIGHT (as of when the series beat me and I dropped it)! There is NO excuse for Lee being such a Jobber.
>>22798549That moment when he PUNCHES AIR INTO A TIGER OF FUCK YOU
>>22781206brb, need to do research.Too bad all naruto dojinshis are shit
>>22798549>There is NO excuse for Lee being such a Jobber.It's because the show isn't about hard work, it's about DUR CHOSEN ONE and bludlines
>actual naruto on 4chan thread without shit'>ON tg/tg/ you are the hero 4chan needs but not the one it deserves
>>22798549Because he can't do ninja magic and therefore sucks at everything forever.
>>22798584It's not that this is /tg/, it's that it's NOT /a/.The worst place to discuss anything on 4chan is on the board specifically made for it
>>22798584I know, this is impressive, even for us.
>>22798602I don't know, I think we're still probably the best place to discuss traditional games.
>>22798621>>22798584I got the impression from previous threads that /tg/ is full of closet Naruto fans.This thread I think on confirms it.
>>22798643>fansI think the proper word is "people who used to be fans but now have either dropped it in disgust, or keep reading just because they don't want the series to beat them with it's shittiness".
>>22782997>Soul EaterUgh, no. It's a bullshit highschool anime wearing the skin of an interesting story.
>>22798587I dunno, he got the best fight scene in the show. When he fought Gaara. taking those weights off was gold.
>>22798662For me, it's some of the latter, some of me being a shipfag
>>22798662i wll filed be under "I like the Setting and characters but not the retarded plot and dumbshit ass pulls"
>>22798643I think it's more that we like the base setting, but fucking hate what Kishimoto has done with it. Up to the Chuunin exam it was a damn good show. Personally I like a lot of the characters, namely the ones who aren't the main characters.Personally it'd make a fun setting for running a campaign. I'd strip out a pile of the Sharingan bullshit, throw the Jinchuriki out the window, and tone the power level stuff down. Then you have a violent cold war between 5 warring Ninja villages who exist in a very tentative truce and hire out supernatural mercenaries to the highest bidder.
>>22798686This, I'm in it to see Naruto hook up with Hinata and see Sakura go full forever alone.
>>22783565the irony is, the creator included Rock Lee to show that hard work and dedication pay off.Guess we know where he stands with regards to hard workers vs natural geniuses.
>>22798677And he still Jobbed for Gaara in the end.Rock Lee NEVER wins any of his actually important fights with the exception of >>22798419>>22798702>implying she won't become village cockslut
>>22798702>not shipping Sakura with SaiThe fucks wrong with you
>>22798712>Not shipping sakura with Rock LeeWhat the fuck's wrong with YOU?
>>22798718You're right, I'm sorry
>>22798699also lets not forget the characters that are just out to make some characters psychopaths and has no character whatsoever. Like how Gaara's dad.
>>22798718>Sakura and LeeShipped them since Lee was introduced.
>>22798718Please, his OTP is Rock Leexfailure
>>22798718>not wanting Rock Lee to get a better girl than SakuraAny girl would be better than Bitchy McPerpetualperiod
between the byakugan and sage mode, the new uzumaki clan will be the most broken shit ever.At least it won't have the Uchiha's Whiny Manbaby Syndrome
>>22792841how is TMNT infinitely expanding universe? The fact that they have a multiverse?
>>22798752I think that was the true Uchiha Kekkei Genkai isn't the Sharingan, that's just a side thing, what was truly passed down through the ages was their ability to mope, brood, and be whiny fucks. When two Uchihas meet they brood at each other, the first to look away loses and the winner may make a one line snide remark.
>>22798752>Uchiha's Whiny Manbaby SyndromeSasuke joining Madara after leaning the "truth" about the Uchiha Clan massacre was executed more pooring than anakin's turn to the dark side.worse than"What I have done!?""Join me.""okay."
>>22798798>more pooringMore poorly,It's clearly time for sleep
>>22798784>When two Uchihas meet they brood at each other, the first to look away loses and the winner may make a one line snide remark.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vK_98zILDo&t=00m12s
>>22798784This, Itachi deserves a fucking medal for putting them out of their misery.
>>22798798Lets be realistic and think without the stupid plot.When madara is defeated they will just go back to killing each other. This will continue forever unless their world are bigger and they get visited by foreigners.The hidden villages are like the the 10 triple A megacorps ganging up to stop the end of the world.
>>22798821that was gold.
>>22798876Lots of stuff from that show is gold.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GniPjvBk-Y&t=01m56s>Fucking moonspeak.>BELIEVE IT!>I DON'T believe it!>KILL THE NON-BELIEVER!
Just stopping to point out that the Shadow Clone Jutsu allows for many creative opportunities in the bedroom.Combine with transformation to fit just about every fetish imaginable.
Should we archive this?
>>22798990>implying girl-ninjas don't only learn clone jutsu and transform jutsu so they can have their own pet tentacle monsters that they keep to themselves>that's why the older ones are so focused; they fuck their own brains out, so they're not distracted by petty things like their own genitals>it's also why the younger ones are so unfocused; their parents don't think they're old enough yet, so they haven't been enlightened as to how to attain ninja-level focus>same for male ninjas, but with clone jutsu Real Dolls
>>22799078>One thousand birds? Ha! I'd rather have one thousand babes!
>>22799056Learn to foolz, newfag
>>22799112Hey, Kakashi IS the copy-ninja with 1001 techniques. There's gotta be an "1000-strong orgy" in there somewhere
>>22799174>implying 901 of those techniques aren't ways of masturbating in public without anyone noticing
>>22798937Sounds like normal evangelism to me.
>>22799182Isn't he constantly reading porn in public anyway? I wouldn't doubt that he has techniques for it at all, but I don't see the need for more than, like, maybe a dozen.
>>22799218>Isn't he constantly reading porn in public anyway?Yes. That is why Kakashi is awesome. The man gives absolutely no fucks.
>>22799244It takes a certain caliber of man to look intimidating while reading porn.
>>22799313To be fair, a man with a raging boner in public is going to intimidate a fair amount of people regardless
>>22799313and then molest one of your students.
>>22799338To be fair, kancho is a common schoolyard prank in Japan.
>>22799330>raging bonerI forgot to take into account the usual type of pants ninjas wear...
>>22799377Actually, a raging boner is MORE visible in loose-fitting pants than, for example, jeans.
>>22799395But in ninja pants you can just use the boner-hiding jutsu.
>>22799415they teach that one in sex-ed?
>>22799458That, and the technique that lets you predict when you're going to ejaculate. I imagine the sharingan helps with that one a bit.
>>22799530If we're seriously discussing this, don't forget the Viagra Jutsu.
>>22799530Sounds more like a Hyuuga thing, unlocking the flow
>>22799163>calls me newfag>suggests foolz instead of sup/tg/Fuck it, I'll do it myself
>>22799568Imagine Rock Lee, opening some of the Gates to give a woman the most mindblowing sexual experience of her life.
>>22799613he'll reverse her lotus
>>22799605>implying this deserves to be on sup/tg/foolz is entirely adequate for this. The one who's wrong is you, not him.
There, done:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22781206/Upvote this shit.
>>22799568Give er the "gentle fist" alright.
>>22799711No. A decent discussion doesn't deserve to be on sup/tg/.
>>22799613Don't worry babe, I can keep going, GATE OF HEALING OPEN.
Kakashi, while he might be great in bed due to the numerous techniques he has stolen and acquired none of it is truly his own. So while it may be good it isn't truly intimate. The 3rd Hokage, while he might be getting on in years still knows exactly what he's doing, he's called the Professor because of how many techniques he has. While his Chakra reserves aren't what they used to be he knows how to make every bit count. The 4th Hokage, called the Yellow Flash for his speed in battle somehow managed to avoid all the jokes about being too fast in bed.
>>22799969>somehow managed to avoid all the jokes about being too fast in bedBecause he has perfect control over his speed. He knows when to use it and when not to.
>>22800056>>22799969>>22799837>discussing the sexual characteristics of fictional menNever change /tg/.
