This is Boruto Quest, a quest set in the universe of Naruto. It is during the generation of Naruto's son, shortly after everyone has graduated from their Genin exam. I haven't kept up with the series beyond the end of the original one, so this one is intended to recapture the feel of that time of Naruto. I will not be incorporating the main show or the Boruto movie's plot into the quest, although some recognizable characters will be present. You play as a 12 year old Genin graduate named Takeshi. You have been assigned a Jounin squad leadrt named Hanto, and your two squadmates are Kichiro, a young delinquent, and Ai, a strange social outcast of a girl. You are of average skill in most aspects, although your sharp intelligence has recently been making itself apparent. This is your first true test as a shinobi.
>>42507672The group seems to stab at your sensei with a spear, and in an instant, he's off the ground.A whirlwind of kicks breaks out from the man as he spins on his back like a breakdancer. The men and women of the cult are all knocked backwards by whips of blue flame, and your sensei jumps back up to his feet and starts to flow through each opponent like water. You can see the flashes of chakra from here, and you start to understand that he's increasing the range and power of his blows with Ninjutsu. That combined with being drunk is making for quite a lightshow. Then, you hear one of the cultists yell. "It's too much! Everyone, attack! Save our brother!" You turn towards the forest, and see a grown man wielding an ax rushing towards you. All around you is yelling, apparently an ambush had been waiting along this road. You don't know how many enemies there are. What do you do?>A. Throw Senbon into his foot and nail him in place. >B. Draw a Kunai and engage him in close combat.>C. Use the Clone Jutsu and the Transformation Jutsu to distract him. >D. Write-in
>>42507672False Sight of a Kunais intermixed with real ones.>Kichiro and axe be friends?
>>42507682>A. Throw Senbon into his foot and nail him in place.
>>42507682>>A. Throw Senbon into his foot and nail him in place.After this mission we are gonna play shogi with Shikidai right?
>>42507905If you see him again, maybe. You don't know where he lives though.
>>42507913You know what we need?A Jutsu for locating people/objects. It would really come in handy.
>>42507913Fuck just ask around town. Someone has to know where he lives. Though the thought is funny when word gets around to shikidai about some creeper asking where he lives to play games with him.
>>42507682>A. Throw Senbon into his foot and nail him in place. Good to see you running again Mini!
>>42507814>>42507863>>42507884>>42507884>>42507905https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYpySN0SwAYYour immediate reaction is to reach within your weapon pouch, and launch a handful of senbon into the man's foot. He's nailed into place suddenly, looking down with confusion. You notice that he seems to be more surprised by the fact that he can't move, than that he's been wounded. "What!? Stupid punk! I-" Before he can finish what he's saying, Kichiro leaps in from his position and unleashes a thunderous right hook. The boy is strong for his age, and he put his entire body into the leaping blow. The sound of flesh on flesh makes a loud smack, even through the combat in the distance. The axe-wielding man falls to his knees, unconscious. When Kichiro lands, he draws a kunai and throws it behind him, into the throat of a sword wielding cultist who had been pursuing him. The cultist fell, and Kichiro looks over to Ai's opponent. She seems to have transformed into a wolf, and deftly dodges the blows of the club at the large man wields. She snaps forwards with her jaws and tears into his ankle, tripping him by raking her teeth across the bone and destroying his support in one smooth motion. Ai resumes her natural form, and the three of you look at each other and smile at your small victory. On the other end of the carriage, you can hear conflict come to a stop. Looking over at your sensei, you can still his blue flames raging. You're surprised the opponents haven't given up yet against him. Suddenly the sounds of conflict resume on the other side of the carriage, and when you turn to look, you see Mirai leaping down to her squad.
>>42507682>>A. Throw Senbon into his foot and nail him in place.
>>42508210As the three of you are distracted, two of the foes that you've slain rise up again. One has a kunai sticking out of his throat, and the other is prying senbon out of his feet. The third foe is unable to walk, but crawling towards you all menacingly. You can hear them moving towards you. What do you do?>A.Engage the one with the damaged foot, and try to disable him further.>B.Throw senbon into their eyes.>C.Use a jutsu. (Specify)>D.Write-in
>>42508231>B.Throw senbon into their eyes.
>>42508231>>B.Throw senbon into their eyes.
>>42508231>B.Throw senbon into their eyes.We Haku now.
>>42508231>>B.Throw senbon into their eyes.Sup mini
>>42508231Senbons in their eyes, connected to wires.Then we pull them out.With their eyes.
>>42508231can we throw senbon with exposion seal?or this>>42508286
>>42508231>>D.Write-inFocus on disabling their movement, then go for the hands. The crawler's easy pickings, step 1 and 2 are the same.
>>42508286They might not come out with the eyes. Maybe if our senbons had some kind of hook or barb?
>>42508286Dear god. Naruto does have this weird thing about eyes, but wow.
>>42508286That's a tad excessive mate.
>>42508354Nah, they wanted to be immortal, this made them unfortunately difficult to fight, now they can be blind for the rest of their lives.
>>42508354It's the best way to beat sharingan/byakugan.>>42508384Dude, these are regular cultists, I don't think they know the immortality ritual.
>>42508231>two of the foes that you've slain rise up again.>>42508416Mini literally said that they come back right there.
>>42508416One dude is still fighting without a throat, He is at least immortal.
>>42508416One of them got back up with a kunai in his throat, now the other two might not be able to feel pain anymore and that's why they're still moving but that motherfucker should be dead
>>42508484Alrighty then, pull out their eyes.Wait... They can sew them back on though.
>>42508502You start to pepper their faces with Senbon, and after a few tries you manage to disable them both. They're blinded by needles and stumbling about helplessly, and Kichiro and Ai both slice their heels. None of them can walk or fight, now. The fighting on the other end of the carriage has stopped as well, although the fighting in the distance has only intensified. You're unsure of it, but you can feel the earth shaking under your feet. When you look at where your sensei is fighting, you're shocked to see that a horde of the enemies is pushing down the path. Some of them are missing limbs or are severely damaged, and you're sure that a few are lacking jaws, tongue bouncing about wildly as they sprint. They're all wielding weapons, but judging by their movements you're sure they're not shinobi. Even then, a horde of twenty or so immortals is nothing to joke about.Mirai's voice shouts a command. "Everyone, line up at the front of the carriage! Protect the drivers, protect the horses!" The six Genin run up and form a line, each wielding a kunai in hand. You're on the rightmost position, with Ai to your left and Kichiro to hers. Then it's Himawari, Shinji, and Kayo. You notice Akuhiro down at her feet, fur bristling. Mirai is standing just behind all of you. She points her finger out, and yells. "Hold the line! Hit them with everything you have! Jutsu, weapons, everything!!" >A.Throw a kunai with your one explosive tag attached.>B.Throw your weaponry into the crowd, and try and target anyone who escapes the other's attacks.>C.Use other equipment (Specify)>D.Write-in
>>42508502Yeah but not quick enough to be useful in the present situation (and not if we stomp on them)
>>42508525We could maybe keep them in a box? The eyes can't be destroyed, they're also immortal.>>42508523>C.Use other equipment (Specify)Throw senbons with wires attached to try and enclose the cultists, so they'll be hit by everyone's attacks.
>>42508523>>A.Throw a kunai with your one explosive tag attached.
>>42508523Take sensei's alcohol and use it to fuel Kichiro's fire jutsu
>>42508523>A.Throw a kunai with your one explosive tag attached.
>>42508523>>D.Write-inWhy don't we false sight as many as we can to make it easier for everyone else.
>>42508523>D. False sight them, and pin them with senbon.
>>42508625Sensei's alcohol is all the way over where sensei is, on the other side the charging cultists
>>42508523can we use our jutsu to make them attack each other?Like creating a fake carriage near their friends?
>>42508523Time for subtlety is over!>A.Throw a kunai with your one explosive tag attached.
>>42508582>Breaking into the Hokage's trainees room>looking for some small scroll he might have left here>psh, average enough a little messy>looking in the closet, see some random box>open box>it's full of eyes>IT"S FULL OF EYES AND THEY"RE LOOKING AT ME
>>42508643>>42508654What is the illusion that you're going to produce? Targeting them all would be an impressive feat, and even if you could do it the illusion that you could create would be very weak. >>42508659They're not idiots. If another carriage appears next to them they can still see the first one, and you can only make one illusion at a time, so no removing one thing and replacing it with another.
>>42508695That implies that we'd become the hokage.What exactly are we shooting for again?
>>42508696Makes us look closer than we really are. Make them swing early and slow down, which lines them up perfectly for a reckoning.
>>42508696All we'd have to do is obscure everyone elses weapons, makes it easier for everyone to score potentially crippling hits.
>>42508523>>C.Use other equipment (Specify)Throw a series of kunai connected with wire. Mobs have poor maneuverability. Lock down their movement further, and pin.
>>42508725To be the strongest shinobi, period. Apparently.
>>42508810I'd settle for stand a fair to middling chance against most of the geniuses in our generation.
>>42508725Just being able to complete missions and be useful against the storm of special prodigies would be good
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1oBSajDsv4Quickly, you kneel down and start to tie your single explosive tag to a kunai. You know that now is the time for some brute force, and this is going to help split the enemy forces before they can even get close. You fling the weapon forward, the first of many. Ai and Himawari start to pepper their forces with their own weapons, and Kichiro and Shinji preform handseals. Behind you Mirai has her arms crossed, and is observing. Your tag detonates after sticking into the chest of a center cultist, blowing him to pieces. Those around him are thrown onto their backs and disoriented, some of them surely having broken bones. The cultists on the outer edges keep rushing, although some of them get dropped by headshots or kneeshots from the female Genin.Kichiro and Shinji both complete their handseals, and for the first time in the mission, Shinji speaks. "Kichiro! Use your jutsu, and then I'll use mine!" You look at him and see his clan's chakra bugs floating around him, and you know that he's preparing a powerful jutsu. Your friend nods, and pulls back his shoulders and expands his chest as he inhales. On the exhale, a great fireball launches forward and tears down the path. It collides and explodes with a group of the cultists, covering them all in fire and sending many of them reeling, crashing against the ground with sickening thuds. You wince at the violence, although you know it's necessary for these opponents. Next, Shinji steps forward. He has both of his hands pointed towards the enemies, and bugs are flowing from the sleeves of his jacket in front of his hands. A massive ball of black insects is collecting, and everyone on your squad is looking on with shock.
>>42509180The Genin on Mirai's squad are simply smiling, as is she. Shinji holds up the black ball, and yells the name of his technique. "Bug Bomb Jutsu!" The mass flies forward with the collective speed of a thousand insects, barely able to hold itself in the air as it starts to come crashing down in an arc. It impacts the last group of cultists, and they fight in futility against the insects, swinging their weapons about and screaming in fear. You all know that they're being drained of their chakra. They'll be totally unable to move.The insects spread out among the wounded, and finish them off as well. None of them are dead (Except for the unlucky few who are beyond recovery from your kunai and Kichiro's jutsu.)Once the group in front of you drops, you can see your sensei walking back to you with a stumble. The sight behind him makes you sick, and you have to put your hand over your mouth to prevent yourself from heaving up lunch. Hanto's arms and legs are covered in blood, and there are broken bodies everywhere. Some of them are twitching just hardly.You look over, and see that Mirai is furious. She marches over to Hanto, and slaps him. "What the Hell!? They're mutilated! These are kids here, Hanto, you can't just turn this into a graveyard!" Your sensei, still drunk, shrugs. "They'll see it sooner or later anyways. They knew what they signed up for when they became shinobi."
>>42509201She's clutching her fists tightly, and with exasperation, stomps back over to the Genin. Everyone except for you and Ai have looked away from the gory scene. You, more because you were paralyzed by fear. When you look over at Ai, you can see that she's blank as ever. Himawari is covering her eyes with her hands, and Kayo is coddling Akahiro. Shinji seems indifferent, collecting his insects back into his body slowly.Mirai approaches all of you, and speaks up. "Alright everyone..We have to move forward through these bodies. But I know how hard this must be to some of you, and I know that it's outright disgusting no matter what.." Hanto passes, and she glares at him. The carriage drivers have been silent this whole time, and are white as ghosts. Mirai continues. "So I can preform a Genjutsu on you, if you wish. It'll make the road seem clear, as if nothing happened. There's no shame in not wishing to see violence. Everyone who wants the jutsu, please step forward.">A.You want the Genjutsu so that you don't have to see the bodies.>B.You don't want the Genjutsu.>C.Write-in
>>42509224>B.You don't want the Genjutsu.Need our heads clear and ready.
>>42509224>B.You don't want the Genjutsu.there is no reason to hide from reality
>>42509224>B.You don't want the Genjutsu.
>>42509224>B.You don't want the Genjutsu."Sensei is right. This is what we've signed up for. We might as well start seeing it now."
>>42509224>>B.You don't want the Genjutsu.We're going to be murdering people later, this is really small bananas.
>>42509224>>B.You don't want the Genjutsu.
>>42509224>B.You don't want the Genjutsu.We should bear witness to the effects of our actions.
>>42509224>>B.You don't want the Genjutsu.Our Sensai is right, we have to be able to handle this. I pray I never get used to it though.
>>42509224>B.You don't want the Genjutsu.We aren't a child, we're a ninja. We need to be ready to kill people.>>42509302Getting used to it is part of the job, anon.
>>42509302I like this a lot. Seconding.
>>42509311>>42509308>>42509302>>42509298>>42509288>>42509284>>42509274>>42509254>>42509253/tg/, does not care about fictional kid's sanity apparently. It's okay though, i voted for >B as well.
>>42509224>>42509253This, furthermore, the sight of the shinobi tortured by these cunts probably had more impact.
>>42509368Child soldier anon
>>42509368Reminder that we signed up for a job that revolves around killing people.
>>42509420>>42509397I know. That's why i voted for B.
>>42509368We need to be able to handle messed up shit and not freeze, doesn't mean we're going to enjoy it.
>>42509224>>B.You don't want the Genjutsu."It's not healthy to hide from reality."
>>42509302Voting for saying this.
Mini you need to get a twitter or something. Just so you can let us know when you'll be running.
>>42509224>B.You don't want the Genjutsu. "These guys are immortal anyway so even if they are like this who knows what they could still be capable of ?"
Yeah. We need to know exactly what it's like because disguising it makes it easier.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pI7Jc-fSQQ8The man seems totally uninterested, smirking. "Do you? Well, I'm honored that someone had sought to understand me in the first place." He starts forward. "Alright everyone! Resume your positions! We're approaching the border of the Land of Lightning!"The carriage starts forward, and everyone returns to their positions. You notice that Shinji never underwent the Genjutsu, and is the only Genin on his squad not to do so. The soil is soaked with blood, and you step over puddles of the warm, sick substance. The scent of death fills your nostrils, although when you look to the ground, the eyes of the mangled corpses still follow you. You know that they're still alive, the gift of immortality. They're experiencing the height of the love of Jashin. It wretches your stomach, and several times you stop walking and begin to heave.A fist strikes your back as you bend over to do so, and you snap up. Looking back, you see Kichiro, with an angry face of concentration, shake his head. "It doesn't help. Keep walking." You know that he's experiencing this just the same as you are, and you feel a bit of resolve stemming from the camaraderie of facing this horror. When you look at Ai, you feel another bit of resolve arrive.She is completely unphased. You steel yourself, attempting to be like her, Hanto, and the others, and glide through the disgusting scene. Of course, you can't see Shinji, but you can hear Mirai speaking to him in a calm voice. Soon after, you're all past the field of bodies, and you can see the border guards in the distance. The terrain around you has become noticeably rockier, and you're travelling uphill. The carriage moves closer to a large set of stone gates. The entrance to the first country that you've ever been to, aside from the land of Fire. What do you do?>A.Bow respectfully.>B.Look in awe>C.Why do you care? You're just here for a mission>D.Ask Ai what this place is>E.Write-in
>>42509916>>D.Ask Ai what this place is
>>42509916>Check under the carriage to make sure nobody managed to grab on.>D.Ask Ai what this place is
>>42509916>B.Look in awe
>>42509916>A.Bow respectfully.>D.Ask Ai what this place is
You bow respectfully, acknowledging that you are entering a foreign land. Men with dark brown skin and blonde hair approach your carriage, and smile. "Hello there. You must be the escort from the Leaf. It's good to see that your Genin are so respectful to other people's lands. Too many are burdened with hate from-" Hanto waves his hand dismissively. "Yeah, totally. How about you guys start checking on the prisoner, and we'll go with whatever escort your village has sent for us. The escort is present, right?" The guard scratches his face. "About that..The Jounin that was assigned to assist you couldn't make it. Apparently he had a more urgent matter to take care of, so, he sent one of his Genin." Hanto crosses his arms. "You're serious? He sent a lone Genin to escort us through the land of Lightning? What happens if the prisoner breaks free?" The guard smiles. "Well, surely you can handle it, sir. After all, you and Mirai are both Jounin, Elite Shinobi, right?" Hanto's eyes narrow. "That's right. Well, let's see him then. I'd like to get on our way; if you can't tell by the blood it's been a long trip. The cult is active."The guards look shocked. "Outside the land of Lightning? What were their numbers!?" Hanto steps forward, frightening the other young man. "Dozens. As I'm sure you can understand, this is an urgent matter."Atop the massive gate, a voice calls out. "Chill out!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwPI2R9QH6EYou look up, and the sun is blocking a short figure. He's wearing tan shorts, and his black Cloud headband is long and flowing. On his back is a spear with a blade like a small bolt of lightning. The young boy leaps down, and lands in front of you all, grinning. He has spiky red hair, and tan skin. "Hey there! My name is Yosuke! Nice to meet you all. I guess I'm you're escort then, huh?">A.Nice to meet you, Yosuke.>B.Who's this joker? (To Kichiro)>C.He must be strong if he's here alone. (To Ai)>D.Write-in
>>42510296>>A.Nice to meet you, Yosuke.
>>42510296>Ano reason to be an ass right now so might as well be polite
>>42510296>A.Nice to meet you, Yosuke.>C.He must be strong if he's here alone. (To Ai)
>>42510296>>A.Nice to meet you, Yosuke.he seems chill so lets also be chill.
>>42510296>>A.Nice to meet you, Yosuke.>>C.He must be strong if he's here alone. (To Ai)
>>42510296>A.Nice to meet you, Yosuke.
>>42509201I get the feeling Sensei has seen some seriously fucked up shit. Suddenly his drunkenness isn't so funny.
>>42510490This is why Hanto is awesome
>>42509368>The one thing worse than death is to avert your eyes from it. Look straight at the people you kill. Don't take your eyes off them for a second. And don't ever forget them, because I promise that they won't forget you.
>>42510296>>D.Write-inBe silent. Internal facepalm.
>>42510319>>42510352>>42510367>>42510393>>42510377>>42510417"Nice to meet you, Yosuke. I'm Takeshi." You say. Everyone greets him except for Shinji, Kichiro, Ai, and Hanto. Of course, you're starting to realize that they're all more or less the antisocial ones of the current group. Yosuke smiles at you. "Hey there. Welcome to the Land of Lightning!" The group sets off after a moment's rest, and you're on your way to the Cloud village. Hanto and Yosuke walk at the front, while the rest of you walk in your usual formation, silent. You're all rather tired from the exertion of combat, as well as walking such a great distance in a single day. It's drawing close to the evening.You look up, and see Mirai looking down at you. She's resting her head on her hand, and she waves when she catches your glance. You wave back, and she turns away. After a few seconds the young Jounin leaps down beside Hanto, and whispers to him. He turns to her. "What? I don't care, that sort of thing doesn't concern me. Do what you want." Oddly enough, she claps her hands together and laughs, running over to your side of the group. "Alright guys! Ai, I want you to change places with Himawari. Kichiro, I want you to take the back with Kayo. Takeshi, stay where you are. We're going to change the formation a little bit, I think this will be more effective. Hehe.." There's something odd about the way she's behaving. Either way, in a moment, everyone is rearranged. Up ahead Yosuke is eagerly trying to talk to Hanto, who seems uninterested. Or still drunk. In front of you is Himawari, who seems a bit nervous. What do you do?>A. Remain silent, and keep walking.>B. Introduce yourself to Himawari>C. Mention that her dad spoke to you before you left for the mission>D. Write-in
>>42510694>B. Introduce yourself to HimawariImouto get?
>>42510694>B. Introduce yourself to Himawari
>>42510694>B. Introduce yourself to HimawariJust introduce ourselves and be nice.
>>42510694>B. Introduce yourself to HimawariLet's not blow our cover here.
>>42510694>>B. Introduce yourself to Himawari
>>42510694>>B. Introduce yourself to HimawariDoes your Sensei do these things often?
>>42510694>>B. Introduce yourself to Himawari"Sup. I'm Takeshi. How you doing?"
>>42510694>>B. Introduce yourself to HimawariSup Bitch
>>42510694>B. Introduce yourself to Himawari. Just because the rest of our team are some combination of antisocial, suffering from PTSD, or both doesn't mean we can't be friendly.
>>42510827Hmm she's got her mom's genes alright
>>42510827I never liked her mum. At all.But damn. Hinata's existence has finally been justified.
You decide to say hello to Himawari, seeing as you are supposed to be looking after her and all. You lightly tap her on the shoulder, and she jumps slightly. She turns around looking nervous with wide eyes, and you can't help but smile. "Hi there. My name's Takeshi, I don't think we've met before." She smiles weakly. "Hi. My name is Himawari. I don't think we have, although I've seen you at the Academy. You graduated this year, right?"You tap your headband. "That's right." and point at the one around her neck. "Looks like you did too. Did they let you take the test early?" She nods bashfully, blushing. "Yes. My dad really pushed to make it happen. He said that ever since I knocked-, err..well actually I'm not supposed to talk about that. But yes, that's right." She's twiddling her fingers. You get the idea that she must feel rather out of place, among all these kids older than her. >A. Hey, don't worry. I think we're through the worst of this.>B. Hey, chin up! You're a shinobi now, you should try to be stronger.>C. I know how you feel. This sure is scary, huh?>D. Write-in

>>42510895i didn't like her either, back when i was an edgy 13 year old, but as i go back over the show these days, she seems like a genuine aight bitch. anything is better than sakura. i cant believe i ever used to care for sakura as a character. ugh.
>>42511183Hinata was a good girl from a good family who treated Naruto like a person.Naruto was an idiot who was after the popular girl.
>>42511183I think the big thing about Sakura is that she is the embodiment of "fucking teenagers".When you are yourself a teenager, you side with her because you're on the same mental wavelength.But when you get older, you realize what fucking retards teenagers are, and she becomes an object for hate.
>>42511218Good family?? Now I know you trollin. Her family is fucked up as all hell. Social wise yes though.
>>42511218he probably would have figured out his mistake hundreds of episodes earlier if she had bothered to wear a few slightly more form fitting sweaters. god damn tho
You think back to the bodies of the cultists, and how you elected to see them as they were. You wonder what sort of Genjutsu that Himawari and Kayo were put under, and if they really didn't see or smell any of the mess. You sigh, and continue. "I know how you feel. It sure is scary, huh?"Himawari looks at you in surprise. "But you didn't use the Genjutsu. I thought that your whole squad wasn't afraid of this sort of stuff..you guys seem tough." Chuckling, you place your hands behind your head as you walk. "Nah! That's just Ai and Kichiro's attitude. They're big loners, but they're pretty nice once you get to know them. Me and Kichiro were scared out of our wits for sure, I think Ai is the only one who wasn't bothered. But hey, she's like, an example. Chin up! We're shinobi now, we have to act stronger." She frowns, and turns her head back forward. You get the impression that she isn't feeling so confident. "I guess.." You frown as well. "Hey, you graduated a year earlier than the rest of us. I know you're plenty strong already, so don't worry about proving yourself to me personally, or anything." She turns and looks at you, giving a small smile despite the dark tone of the conversation. "Thanks, Takeshi. I appreciate it. The Land of Lightning sure is pretty, huh?" You nod. "Sure is. I love the-"Without warning, a hand launches out of the carriage, smashing through the wood. It's white, and stretches out to grab Himawari's throat and pull her back, slamming her against the carriage gasping for air. You know that the man who's /supposed/ to be in the carriage has brown skin.Something's really wrong.-------------That's all for tonight, folks. I'll stick around to answer some questions as usual.
>>42511242Yes socially is exactly what I meant. That tends to be what that means when talking about marriage/relationships.
>>42511183>i cant believe i ever used to care for sakura as a character. ugh.There was a time I thought she could eventually evolve out of being a shit. Boy did that moment never come.
>>42511242her dad, specifically, was a pretty alright guy in some ways. he tried to go against his clans wishes and kill himself for the good of konoha.
>>42511261I already have a solution for what just happened. Git gud Mini. No i'm not telling you so you can counter it.
>>42511287It doesn't matter. You can't outplan me, because I don't plan anything at all! Not even I know what's going to happen next, so how could you?
>>42511261Welp, this is either really happening or it's a genjutstu. See ya next time boss
>>42511261Cliffhanger ending, how could you!
>>42511261Well shit. Going have to be smart and all heroic next thread.
>>42511264She could HAVE, but it would have required a realization of her flaws, and a decision and continuous effort to be a better person.And she never got that.
>>42511314Are you somehow related to Kubo?
>>42511340I love cliffhangers>>42511346always>>42511366who's kubo?
>>42511391Tite "I planned some crazy elaborate shit out like a decade in advance, but can't foreshadow to save my dick, so verything looks like asspulls unless you go back and read the whole manga gain to catch the shit that hints at it" Kubo.
>>42511391>who's kubo?The Heart.
>>42511431>>42511442Oh, I never really cared for bleach
>>42511482I know of one chick who practically drank it
>>42511493If you drink bleach and ammonia at the same time will you leak poison gas?
>>42511511Yes. Scientific fact.
>>42511493>>42511511>>42511519I leave for one minute....
>>42511584Let me guess you went to get a drink
>>42511183Huh, it was the exact opposite for me. I thought Hinata was the shit when I was younger, but as I got older I realized her true character. Bland. For all the crap people give Sakura about Sasuke Hinata is really the one who's entire characterization comes down to which boy she likes.
>>42511699Hinata is really boring and Sakura is really dumbThe best girl is Temari
>>42511755That was never in question, I just hate how good Hinata's assets are and she fell in love with fucking Naruto..............
>>42511755The thing is Sakura had potential, just Kishimoto screwed it up. Especially since there were times that he just out and out forgot that about Sakura. And then Hinata gets a retroactive scene with Naruto in The Last movie to try and make the relationship make sense, and Sakura just gets 'Yeah she hooked up with Sasuke after all the shit he pulled.'The hell.
>>42511813Pretty sure Kishimoto went on record saying he was shit at romance, or was that Toriyama?
>>42511821I understand you may be a fan of Hinata but you've got to admit, everything about her boils down to 4 things. She is pleasant, she is shy, she wants to get stronger, and she likes Naruto. And unlike Sakura we don't even get to see how Hinata gets stronger or who she trains under. She's just inexplicably stronger later on in the series.
Someone please archive
>>42512229no, let it get the edge, anonwhere I live
>>42512312and I labeled it wrong, god fucking damnit
>>42511261Fucking brutal.Guess we broke our promise with the hokage...did we?
>>42511902We don't need to see the entirety of Hinata's work out regime to accept that she worked hard to become stronger. We saw her once or twice secretly practice out in the woods some time after the chunin exams and that should suffice.There was also that whole love confession scene when she truly found her courge and protected Naruto from Pain, which really didn't go anywhere untill The Last.
>>42513139Depends on what you do next thread.
