>>42606017TIME FOR TRAINING TRIP WITH BEST SENSEI!
>>42606036Check the pastebin, 'cause I think some of Kon's stuff got updated.Other people got added & updated, too, I think.
Reminder we should talk to 10/10 Kiba and Sasuke before we leave. And make sure Kiba and Sauce man are alright and not hurt too bad
>>42606075I second this, but add Lee to this list. See if he's awake now. We kind of busted up his arm pretty bad.
After an uneventful first two days of travel, you and your two companions arrive at a bustling town.Looking down on it from the cliff, Sarutobi Sensei addresses you and his grandson."I know you two are probably anxious to begin your training." the Third starts. "But I need to spend at least a few days gathering information first, so we know where to look. This town is having a festival for the next few days, so why don't you two enjoy yourselves for a bit before we start your training?"Konohamaru starts pouting. "Some training journey this is.">A.Come on Konohamaru, it'll be fun>B.We can help you get information, Sensei>C.Let's train on our own, Konohamaru>D.Other
>>42606057Tenten and Kakashi got added, Sasuke and Kiba got updated. Sasuke appears to be weaker overall than he was in canon at this point, Tenten seems to be about the same.
>>42606075>>42606086They're unconscious.>>42606088>A.Come on Konohamaru, it'll be fun>>42606106I know. I read the pastebin when he posted the link on Twitter.
>>42606088>D. "Well, I can probably help you train your chakra control. You need to get that down to do the really cool stuff anyways. I'm gonna work on something else myself while you do that."
>>42606088>A.Come on Konohamaru, it'll be fun>D.Other"You're going to complain about getting to go to a festival?"
>>42606088>C.Maybe we can teach him some stuff we've learned?
>>42606088>B.We can help you get information, SenseiWe're a Chunin we should be able to help gather info
>>42606017Okay, so, things to practice while we move. Make your vote for what you want:>Sonar Stepping>Summoning Monkeys (or gambling bears, or sociopathic llamas with hats)>Finger Gun.What do?Oh, and for those who didn't stick around: We settled on Shattershot for the shockwave blast through the air, and Feedback for the reactive blast of chakra that fucked up Lee's arm. We still need one for the physical blow that gets enhanced with Impact chakra.We came up with>Thunderfist Style Taijutsu>Thunder God's Drum>Fist of the North Stay
>>42606106Actually the databook 2 stats were for the end of part 1, you're not that far in time yet.
>>42606129Seconding this. Perhaps while we do this we'll key into some way to make some techniques easier to use. Maybe even improve them through some insight we gain.
>>42606088>>C.Let's train on our own, KonohamaruWe might not get much benefit, but we can probably help Konohamaru improve his basics.
>>42606157Fist of the North Star*
>>42606088>A.Come on Konohamaru, it'll be fun
>>42606088>A.Come on Konohamaru, it'll be funAlso,>C.Let's train on our own, KonohamaruWe don't really NEED to have Third actively training us to get better. Shit like practicing hand seals and chakra distribution shouldn't be hard at all, and lays the groundwork for fancier techniques.We should try alternating between running through the basic hand seals and quickly focusing our chakra in specific spots whenever we've got a free moment. After seeing what Sasuke did to the tree he was climbing by forcing too much chakra into his feet, it should be obvious that doing that on purpose could be useful (see also: how Sakura got swole in canon).
>>42606088>>C.Let's train on our own, Konohamaru
>>42606157>>42606178No. I suggested Fist of the North Star for when Kon can actually send enough vibrations in people with his punches to blow them up.Not for the simple enhanced punch.
>>42606195>We'll show up at Granny Tsunade's with her own technique already figured out and enhanced with our own Kekkei Genkai.
>>42606157Fist of the North Star was people dicking around, and you combined several of the "options": Thunderstrike, Thunder God Fist, and Thunder Drum.Also what you suggested we practice are all complicated techniques. We should use "spare time" for basics like hand seals and chakra control exercises, and let the Third help us with the complicated stuff.
>>42606157I thought we were going go with Thunderstruck and gonno go with the rock n roll theme from now on
>>42606252That was a joke, anon. Rock and roll doesn't even exist in the setting, otherwise one of the Sound genin would have been Doof Warrior.Would've made the arc so much better.
>>42606252>and gonno go with the rock n roll theme from now onNo.That was a series of jokes.>>42606247>Fist of the North Star was people dicking aroundThat was my serious suggestion for a future technique that Kon might be able to use.Not for the simple punch.I prefer something without the name "thunder" in it, 'cause that makes it seem like lightning would be attached, and it's not.Not yet, anyway.
>>42606247Aye, we need to level up our stats some. We're only 2.5 points total behind Sasuke, I want to see if we can bridge the gap before he gets out of the hospital.
>>42606157Can we not make our attacks references to things that don't even exist IC?
>>42606315Well, lightning is sort of attached, I figure that's what gives the paralytic effect. But it's not the main focus of the release.
>>42606282>Rock and roll doesn't even exist in the settingNot sure if thats true, but if it is then this is a travesty that must be rectified.
>>42606328I don't know, it works fine for Kakuzu. All his technique names are Gundam references, and they definitely don't have that in the world of Naruto.
>>42606340>I figure that's what gives the paralytic effect.That's most likely the vibrations messing with people's nerves or bones.Like when you hit your elbow on something and it feels really weird.You could be right though. I'm just not sure which it is.
>>42606282I dunno, if Killer B can constantly rap, I imagine Rock and Roll exist. Not to mention there's Films and Cinemas.
>>42606412So we can basically do what Tsunade did to Kabuto in this arc?
>>42606120>>42606128>>42606183>>42606195>>42606311https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0k3onazsn_Q&index=12&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85"Come on Konohamaru, it'll be fun." you insist.The three of you make your way into town to see all kinds of stalls lined up."I'll be taking my leave then." Sarutobi Sensei tells you. "You two have fun, I'll meet up with you later this evening."The Third walks away and approaches some young women. "Excuse me, would you ladies mind helping an old man out?"Meanwhile, you and Konohamaru hit a bunch of stalls, playing games and eating snacks. It takes Konohamaru a bit too get into it, but after a while he's having the time of his life.Later in the evening, you two are munching on some okonomiyaki, waiting for your teacher to show his face again.>A.Talk to Konohamaru about something>B.Eat in silence>C.Other
>>42606433>calling what Killer B does "rap"And I'm pretty sure most people he meets think there's something wrong with him because of it.
>>42606454Oh yeah, we should definitely see if we can convince her to teach us that, an electric technique that messes up peoples' coordination is right up our alley. Though really, if we convince her to train anyone it should be Tenten.
>>42606478>A.Talk to Konohamaru about somethingAsk him why he wants to get stronger so badly.>C.OtherPlay a game with him. We make hand seals in quick succession, he has to copy them. Take turns being the "leader".
>>42606478>A.Talk to Konohamaru about somethingAsk him about his life, what sort of things he enjoys, things like that. We're friendly with Konohamaru but we don't actually know too much about him. Tell him about ourselves, too. Use this time for some general bonding.
>>42606433Rap is just beat poetry.Though you have a point for the other stuff.(Not that anon)>>42606454I don't think I've read or seen that part.
>>42606478Fancy a little bit of a spar?Obviously we wont go full on with him, but it'll help stretch our bodies a bit and prepare for the upcoming training
>>42606478Seconding>>42606522Or making the game instead being like some form of tag.
>>42606412I was assuming it was electricity screwing with nerves.>>42606478>>A.Talk to Konohamaru about somethingWhat kind of ninja he wants to be. His aspirations and talents.
>>42606490She seems to be going down the yellow flash route really.
>>42606157>Sonar SteppingIt's called "Good Vibrations", dammit!Let me have my Beach Boys reference!Also, we need to figure out a move we can call "Hammer to Fall."
>>42606530>I don't think I've read or seen that part.She hits him with a low-power, high-control lightning jutsu that messes up his nervous system. It's basically that thing that some annoying video game enemies do where they mess with your controller. He'd try to move his arm and his leg would respond, turn his head and he'd clench his hand, stuff like that. He managed to cure it after a bit of concentration, but it was still pretty cool.>>42606571Yeah, I know, but Tsunade is her hero. We need to at least introduce them. And hey, Tsunade's pretty good with seals herself, I'm sure she could teach Tenten something. Not to mention that Tsunade's strength training combined with Tenten's accuracy would be utterly terrifying. She'd be a living railgun, pretty much.
>>42606530https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML4LJDa7OnA>2:20 english dubs unfortunatelly
>>42606548That doesn't help us though, we're Jonin level speed already. Hand seals are something we should probably both be working on.
>>42606478>C. "Wanna practice for a bit? I know some pretty simple Chakra Control excersizes, can help you out there."
>>42606618>>42606623This should be a must for Kon to learn.>>42606651True. Just had a hard time imagining making seals being a game.
>>42606684Bop It is a game. Cat's Cradle is a game.
>>42606488>people dissing Killer B>mfw
>>42606734You don't have a face? That's okay, you can borrow mine.
>>42606701Life, is a game.
>>42606522>>42606526>>42606550https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4_wifjVkmA&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=34You're friendly with Konohamaru, but you don't really know him that well, so you decide to strike up a conversation while you eat."So why do you want to get stronger so badly, Konohamaru?" you ask. "Is there something you really want to achieve?""I want to become the Hokage, like my grandpa was." he answers. "He retired around the time I was born, so he's always been there for me, but he often talks about being the Hokage."Konohamaru stops eating and looks down. "I don't know what happened, but he feels like he let the village down. I can't imagine it. He's such a great teacher and he cares so much about other people. How could he have been a bad Hokage?"Konohamaru then stands up, his fist forward. "That's why I'll follow in his footsteps and become Hokage! If he feels like he made some mistakes, I just have to fix them! But for that I need to be stronger. That's why I'm always training.">A.Ask him about his training>B.Ask him something else>C.Invite him to train>D.Just wait for Sarutobi Sensei>E.Other
>>42606860>C.Invite him to trainHand seals, back and forth. At this point we need to practice them as much as he does, and it's easy enough to do without causing too much of a fuss.Also my Captcha just had a cake that looks like Mario's face.
>>42606860>>A.Ask him about his training>>C.Invite him to train
>>42606860>>C.Invite him to trainTry and copy my hand seals. I'll be doing them as quickly as I can. Then you do one and I copy you.
>>42606893>>42606921Maybe switch back and forth between sets of five? That's a pretty common number of seals for a lot of techniques.
>>42606860>C.Invite him to train
>>42606860>A.Ask him about his training
>>42606860>E.Other"You're a good kid, Konohamaru."
So, in canon, Haku is actually regarded as more effeminate than most girls. Some of the off-canon shit even has the other girls coming to him for beauty/fashion advice.Is Haku still such best trap in this setting?
>>42606893>>42606895>>42606921>>42606964>>42606967>>42607001>>42607051"So how is your training going?" you ask."I'm super advanced thanks to grandpa's training." Konohamaru answers. "I'm not even in the academy yet, and I could probably pass the graduation exam."You figure that's roughly at genin level, so you invite him to train a bit while you wait. Making a bit of a game out of it, you take turns making hand signs and copying them as fast as possible. The kid wasn't lying, as his hand signs are as good as yours.Eventually Sarutobi Sensei shows up, just before the sun finishes setting."Did you two have fun today?" he asks.>A.Did you?>B.Can we start training tomorrow?>C.We did>D.Other
>>42607191>D. Hold up the giant monkey plushie you won.
>>42607170Well, a few years down the line we should definitely give Ino some (joking, good natured) needling about being a closet case."But I'm dating Haku!""My point exactly. He's prettier than you are.">>42607191>C.We did
>>42607191>C.We did"Your grandkid's something else, sensei.">D.Other"Did you find any solid information?"
>>42607191>C.We did>A.Did you?>B.Can we start training tomorrow?
>>42607191>C.We did>A.Did you?And>B.Can we start training tomorrow?
>>42607191>C.We did>D.Other"So, find any leads on her?"
>>42607191>B.Can we start training tomorrow?>D."Did you find any information?"
>>42607191>>42607225I'll second the plushie.Comment on how it looks kinda like Enma
>>42607191So can we make the hand seals game a regular thing? Like in the evening when we're winding down anyway, just do that while we're chatting?
So, we've confirmed no GaaraxNaruto?
>>42607459Be careful, anon.If our fingers get too nimble, Best Girl won't let us keep them to ourself.
>>42607191It just occurred to me that at the rate we're going, we may actually end up as Konohamaru's Jounin instructor.
>>42607529Team Kon, eh?
>>42607509You say that like it's somehow a bad thing.
>>42607419How could we comment on that when we've never seen Enma? Though I guess Sarutobi could comment on it himself and muse about how he needs to show Enma next time they meet for tea. That would be funny.>>42607502Well, they could hook up in the afterlife, I suppose. Since they're both dead.
>>42607529Hope his team aren't those little shit canon kids.
>>42607570When we first saw Sarutobi, Enma was with him. lrn 2 red fagt
>>42607502>GaaraThis Jinhuriki is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker. This is a late parrot. It's a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. If you hadn't nailed it to the perch, it would be pushing up the daisies. It's rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-Jinchuriki!
>>42607529I doubt we'd be that quick for a Jounin promotion, but that'd be cool if it were the case.
>>42607573I hope his team will be those kids.We can make it so that they're very well trained and are only shit in appearance.
>>42607257>>42607258>>42607262>>42607272>>42607301>>42607356>>42607404"We did." you say, as Konohamaru holds up the monkey plushie he won at a stand."How about you, Sensei?" you say with a grin. "Find any information?""It may take a few more days to dig something up." the Third replies."If we're going to be sticking around for a bit, then can we start training tomorrow?" you inquire, trying not to sound too anxious."I guess I could start you boys on something." your teacher relents. "Then you can train through the day while I gather information."The three of you head back to your hotel room, and get some sleep. You're all up early, back on the cliff overlooking the town."Now then." Sarutobi Sensei starts. "What is it that you boys wanted to learn?">Write-in
>>42607595No, I'm checking that thread right now and he wasn't. I don't know what you're talking about.
>>42607601Rest in peace.Who am I kidding, there's no way he's not in Hell
>>42607653>"Well...I've got some ideas for some Jutsu with my Kekkei Genkai, but I'm also wondering if I shouldn't practice my handsigns...what do you think, Sensei?"
>>42607653Any way to not use hand seals in combat like the Second Hokage?
>>42607653>Write-into eliminate wasteful movements while i'm in action so i can go faster
>>42607653"When I was fighting Gaara, there was a point where I had to choose which of my friends I wanted to help. I hated that.""Don't suppose you know any techniques that could let me be two places at once? Failing that, sealing would be nice. At least then I wouldn't run out of traps and explosive tags again."
>>42607653>Write-inHand seals, genjutsu, or strength.
>>42607653I'd like to learn a Lightning jutsu so that we have a good grasp of both components of our bloodline. Gives us a bit more flexibility and might make us better at using the combined nature. Aside from that, I'd also like to work on our hand signs and our overall efficiency so that we can use jutsu more easily and often.
>>42607653Seals, so we don't run out of supplies.
>>42607653Hand seals or strength training. We could stand to be a lot stronger, physically.I would suggest genjutsu, but I think we'd need his assistance for that.
>>42607735thiswe need to get the basics down
>>42607700We've been told we need a 4 in hand seals for that.
>>42607653>Write-inwant to learn how to make my own traps and create traps based on my Chakra
>>42607735Genjutsu is a waste of our time. We won't get it strong enough to use against a Jonin or Akatsuki, so simply being able to dispel it is fine. Strength can be offset by our chakra control, same as Sasuke busting up trees and canon Sakura's ENTIRE shtick. Ninjutsu, that's where it's at. It augments our strength, our taijutsu, and gives us more tricks to create openings for Impact release or shitloads of bombs. That's how we level the playing field.
>>42607653a lightning jutsu or summoning. See what animal we are close to.
>>42607801I know but picking his brain is still a good idea.
>>42607801>getting better at hand seals so you don't use hand sealsTruly Naruto logic is flawless
>>42607653>Summoningwe put off the chance last time but I want to join the monkey club!
You know it's possible to seal chakra, right?
>>42607735Actually, we know how to get out of genjutsu, and I'm not really interested in learning any.>>42607653>Taijutsu training!
>>42607653>SummoningNot sure if we can learn it, but might as well try.
>>42607856its more like getting so good at chakra manipulation that you don't need the hand seals anymore
>>42607866Only if the monkey can teach us ninjutsu he's seen Sarutobi using. Which WOULD make sense, since the man himself can't spend his time training us.
>>42607814>Genjutsu is a waste of our time.Fucking with peoples' minds when we're a trap user isn't a waste of time, Anon.
>>42607928>>42607866I kinda want to keep our options open for summoning
>>42607653>SummoningSarutobi expressed interest when we brought it upThe monkeys seem well versed in ninjutsu if Sarutobi's is anything to go by, plus it opens the gate to nature chakra shenanigans later on
>>42607962It is when every enemy worth using it on from here on out is gonna have a 4 or a 5 in it.Genjutsu isn't a particular strength for our character. Our time would be wasted trying to change that when we could be improving other skills to a high enough level to be worth using.
>>42607962Except we aren't the genjutsu type of trap user.In fact, that's the kind of trap user people expect.We're like a dual-sided lightsaber user. Not necessarily the most effective, but noone knows how to deal with our bullshit.
Let's summon an oumukade.
>>42607866Lets do it. The monkeys are such an under appreciated summoning scroll. its always toads this or snakes that. King motherfukken Enma never gets any respect.
>>42608017Do you want the best option or not? Because having magic monkeys teaching us ninjutsu would probably be the best case scenario.And since people seem to have a massive hardon for the technique, I at least want to get the ninjutsu monkeys out of the deal if that's the winning choice.
>>42607653>SummoningPeople voting for seals seems like a bit of a wasteTenTen could just tell us how easily in regard to item sealsAnd hand seal training seems like a big waste when we have some training time with a previous hokage, we could probably up this some other way without dedicating a huge set o time to it
>>42608070>>42608024I still support summoning a Bear with a gambling problem
>>42607653Senjutsu. Steal the force from impacts and turn it into Chakra.Pain's face when he gives us infinite chakra.
"I need to train my strength, genjutsu and hand seals." you say.The Third responds bluntly. "I won't be here with you, so it'd really be no more effective than if you trained on your own."You think a bit more. "Well then, maybe a lightning jutsu or summoning."Konohamaru interrupts. "Yes! Summoning! I want to learn to summon monkeys like you, grandpa!"Sarutobi Sensei sighs. "I suppose you could at least form the contract. What about you, Kon? Do you also want to learn my summon technique?">A.I want to learn it>B.I want to summon something else>C.I want to learn a different jutsu>D.Other
>>42608070Already contracted with Pain.Not even kidding, that's one of Pain's summons.
>>42608116>>A.I want to learn it
>>42608103Does he also wear a fez?
>>42608116>I want to learn it
>>42608126Oh damn. Haven't watched Naruto since I was a kid, so I forgot.
>>42608116>A.I want to learn it
>>42608116>A.I want to learn itDoesnt make sense to go for a new type of summon
>>42607715Angling for Shadow Clones?Makes sense. At 3 stamina Shizune can make 36 of them, and they're probably the best candidate technique for vicious abuse in setting up traps and mind games.
>>42608126>>42608155Can you show me an image? I googled searched it but got gnomes.
>>42608116>B. I want to summon something else."Konohamaru can take monkeys, but I think I should go with something else. So there's some variety."
>>42608116>B.I want to summon something else>D.Other"What other things can I learn to summon? I'd like to find out before I sign a contract with just one group."
>>42608116>B.I want to summon something else
>>42608116Sure, why not.Shadow Clones would suit Kon's style so much better, but since people want summoning let's get the monkeys.
>>42608116>B.I want to summon something elsegiant explodey bombardier beetle or something
>>42608116>B.I want to summon something elseGambling Fez wearing bears!
>>42608181>Google "pain summon">Click images>Literally top line of imagesDidnt try very hard by the sounds of italso>>42608116>A.I want to learn it
>>42608116>B.I want to summon something elseBadgers.This is in no way influenced by a series of fantasy novels I read as a kid.
>>42608181Took me like two seconds dude.
>>42608116>C.I want to learn a different jutsui just dont think summoning is a good complement to our fighting strategy at the moment
>>42608238I googled 'pain oomukade', my bad
>>42608116I wanna summon monkey king!
>>42608273I totally agree. I'm just voting monkeys in the hopes that said monkeys can teach us ninja things when Sarutobi's not around.Because like it or not, we seem to be getting summoning.
>>42608116>B.I want to summon something elseI don't know, feels kind of presumptuous to just learn Sarutobi's contract. That feels like it's something important to pass down. And while he likes us, I just don't feel like we have the sort of relationship where we can ask for that. Yet, anyway.
>>42608116LazeWith all these "i wanna summon something else" can they not just straight rule out monkeys? Like if a specific summon option gets more than monkeys okay but otherwise it'll just be a shit show >A.I want to learn itSummon an army to replace shadow clone jutsu for us
>>42608116>I want to learn where my animal leaning is, then learn it,
>>42608116>>B.I want to summon something elseMuch as I like the idea, monkeys are his family contract. It wouldn't feel right to accept.
>>42608322We're basically Naruto in this setting, anon. We're the child of one of Jiraiya's students that survived the shitshow when Kurama attacked, who has unusually high potential and multiple links to important people.And given what little we know about how things played out that night in this universe, he probably feels responsible for Kon to some degree.
GUYS!Meerkat summon!Fuck Orochimaru's shit up.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOsBKCDtkco
>>42608126so? there are 3 snake summoners, 2 frog, and 2 slug in canon
>>42608380The originals took the saninsAnd nobody other than sarutobi has been shown using it so it doesnt seem like a family thing to me
>>42608380He's OFFERING. This pretty much implies he's either thought it through and doesn't mind, or that he actually wants us to learn it.
>>42608419Pain mind-controls the summons of his individual bodies, anon. That's why they all have Rinnegan and chakra receptors shoved into them.Anything Pain summons in canon is probably off-limits.
Honestly the idea of summoning a temp tutor in the form of sarutobi's monkey summon seems like a really good idea for us
>>42608433No offense anon, but that is a very un-Japanese mindset. They'll offer you the world there, partially because they don't expect you to accept.
>>42608494>Being this autistic
>>42608534>Nardo doesn't take place in fantasy Japan
"I want to learn it." you say. "Though, if I form a contract with the monkeys, does that mean I can only summon monkeys?""It is possible to form two contracts, and summon the creatures for one with each hand." the Third answers. "To keep things simple for now, I'll just have you both sign my contract."Sarutobi Sensei bites his thumb to draw blood, then forms some hand signs and places his palm on the ground. "Summoning Jutsu!"In a cloud of smoke, appears a large monkey dressed in a tiger pelt, and wearing a Leaf headband. The monkey is holding a large scroll.The monkey turns to the Third and speaks. "So you're actually passing down the contract, eh Sarutobi? Who are these kids, anyway?">A.Say something>B.Just stand in awe>C.Other
>A for monkeys
>>42608116>Summon something elseBEAR OR BADGER!
>>42608494This isn't a "Japanese" mindset, it's a student-teacher relationship. It's more like old-school kenjutsu or kobudo than modern Japanese etiquette. Completely different system of rules, interactions, and considerations.
>>42608560>A.Say somethingPolitely introduce ourselves.
>>42608560>A. "My name is Kon Karagowa." Bow respectfully.
>>42608560>>A.Say somethingI'm Kon.
too much samefag
>>42608560>Be really polite with the introduction>Be a little nervous outward because we a kid about to be given a pokemon
>>42608560>A.Say something"Kon Karagowa, Chunin of the Village Hidden in Leaves. Pleased to meet you."Kon is a good boy.
>>42608560>>A.Say somethingbe polite to Monkey #1
>>42608560*bows respectfully* "Hello sir. My name is Kon Karagowa, Sarutobi-sensei's newest student.
>>42608560>A."I'm Kon Karagowa, nice to meet you."
>>42608417if we anti snake we should have gone badger
>>42608776surely you mean mongoose
....We get bo staff training now?Transfer our impact release through a staff?...Swordanon is OK with this.
>>42608560>A.Say something"Hello, sir. I am Kon Karagowa, and this is Sarutobi-sensei's grandson, Konohamaru.
>>42608792Honestly as someone really against swords, im okay with a staff
>>42608792Polearms always > Swords.
>>42608792If Tenten gets really good at building and modifying weapons, we could have a sword extension or sword/spear shooter in our staff at the press of a button.
>>42608824Or, you know, a staff that transforms into a three-section cane. I love the three-section cane.
>>42608824Use our impact release as a makeshift gunpowder
>>42608820Legitimately grade-A opinion anon, you have my support
So now that Best Monkey is our contract, there are a few more good ideas to pursue:>chakra control to enhance striking power (like Sakura)>Shadow Clones and related hijinks>Shuriken Shadow Clone>Sealing, both for weapons/bombs and large reserves of Impact release chakra
>>42608824I'd rather do the Adamantine Staff Transformation with one of our summons. That thing is awesome. Hard as diamond, able to shift its mass and size, flies through the air under the direction of the monkey that formed it, and it can split and divide without limit. It's a really strong weapon, even if we're not going to be using it all the time due to needing a fairly powerful summon to support it.
>>42608824>>42608848Not if our "staff" is actually Enma.
>>42608820Naginata is the katana of polearms.We should get that!
>>42608948We can get more than one staff.
>>42608945>be in close combat>substitute: suddenly there's a staff there, and it's hitting you in the face>catch the staff and channel chakra into it>now it's a two-headed pile bunker
You know, Enma is the name of the guy who rules Hell in Shinto.I wonder if he's met Gaara... Shinto Hell also has the person sent there work off the years they earned. Considering everything, how long would Gaara have to work it off?
>>42608593>>42608602>>42608617>>42608625>>42608632>>42608653>>42608655>>42608665>>42608668>>42608694>>42608805"I'm Kon Karagowa, Sarutobi Sensei's student." you introduce yourself as you give a respectful bow.Next to you, Konohamaru does the same."I can't say I agree with teaching the summoning technique to two children, but I will respect Sarutobi's decision." the monkey tells you. "I am the monkey king, Enma."Enma lays the scroll before you and Konohamaru and rolls it out. He points to the two next empty columns."Sign your names here, in your blood." Enma directs. "With that, the contract will be formed."You and Konohamaru do as you're told, then Enma rolls up the scroll and disappears in a puff of smoke."Alright!" Konohamaru shouts. "I'm gonna try it right now! Summoning Jutsu!"Konohamaru performs all the correct steps, but what appears in a puff of smoke is not what he expected.A baby monkey rocks back and forth with eyes wide, while Konohamaru just looks in bewilderment.>A.Laugh>B.Ask Sarutobi Sensei what happened>C.Try to use the Summoning Jutsu yourself>D.Other

>>42609154>>42609156>>42609158If it works, a mild look of bewilderment is in order for us as well.Konohamaru probably just doesn't have the control or chakra reserves of a Genin, even if his technical knowledge is very good.
>>42609170>uses impact chakra>gets Rajang
>>42609195>Enma: "Oh fuck not him. Sorry Sarutobi, but I'm outtie."

>>42609225That'd be hype
>>42609155thisMonkey babbies are adorable.
>>42609225I'm more interested in what a hypothetical Sage mode would look like.Probably Goku, now that I think about it. Or maybe Raditz, given how Enma's hair looks.
>>42609306Not as hype as learning how to go super saiyan with electricity.
Im hoping we summon either Enmu's sonhttp://jebedai.deviantart.com/art/Wukong-516822100or his other sonhttp://ntocha.deviantart.com/art/wukong-s-shoots-134904252
>>42609337>take in natural energy>transform it into Impact chakra>get reactive armor and exploding punches, on top of all the benefits of Sage mode
>>42609357I like the first one, looks like he would drop bombs and such.

>>42609113>A.Laugh>C.Try to use the Summoning Jutsu yourselfBurn all of our fucking chakra into it
>>42609411>Instead of becoming frog like we become monkey likeNext we need to partner up with Roshi and the four tailed gorilla. Impact and Lava Release would be awesome together.
>>42609510>being deliberately retardedYou realize our character is a Chunin with slightly above-average intelligence, right? IC he fucking knows better.

"Summoning Jutsu!"In a puff of smoke appears what seems to be a completely normal monkey, with nothing special about it at all.It feels somehow underwhelming.Sarutobi Sensei just laughs as you and Konohamaru's summoning attempts disappear."Don't worry, you two." your teacher encourages. "The Summoning Jutsu takes many long hours of practice, perfoming it countless times. It will come to you. For now, I must go."Before leaving, the Third comes over to you."Keep a close eye on Konohamaru, would you?" he asks. "He just doesn't have the chakra for a proper summon yet, but he'll likely keep trying until he passes out."With that, your teacher leaves. As he expected, Konohamaru continues to attempt summoning.>A.Keep practicing summoning>B.Practice something else>C.Other
So i guess our Sage mode would be a super sayan 4 look alike right?
>>42609578>A.Keep practicing summoning

>>42609740Fuck you, I read that in his voice.
>>42609770Spell check kept eating the last Jojo...hm.
>>42609778That's not an amazing achievement considering that GT is a piece of shit of wasted potential
GuysWe could learn to absorb all the impact from our footsteps, thus leaving literally no mark upon the ground we walk.No footprints running across sand or snow or even through grass.Untrackable except by scent.
>>42609740I really like the 3 monkeys idea
>>42609840That would be cool, yeah. Would take more control than we currently have, but would be a neat trick. Shame Gaara's too dead for us to use that against him, though, since he can detect footsteps and it would be neat to sneak up on him that way.
>>42609872No sound either, except by the sound of us moving in the wind.Shadowless Footsteps technique?
>>42609872lmao gaaras fucking dead
>>42609853They could block off those three senses on our enemies.Hear No Evil makes them deafSpeak no evil makes them muteSee no evil makes them blindAll three at once and it would make things evened out on the battlefield.

>>42610007>>A.Ask him somethingTell me about your civilization. Are you high-ranked?

>>42610007>A.Ask him something"Actually i was just training the summoning jutsu and then you came in, I'm Kon Btw, nice to meet you."
>>42610007>A.Ask him somethingWant to spar? I want to see what you can do.
>>42610007>D"Oh, I'm Kon and do you mind telling a new summoner what your masks are for?"
>>42610007>A.Ask him something"Hello, I'm Kon. I've recently signed the summon contract for your clan. I was just practicing getting the jutsu right, I can let you go back if you don't want to stick around."
>>42610007>D. "Sup. I'm Kon, and...uhm...you're kinda my first real summon. Eheheh....so, uh..how does this work? Do I pile on fruit or..uhm...I dunno, I'm kinda sorta completely new to this. Cool masks, by the way"
>>42610007>Compliment his masks
>>42609972That sounds like high level genjutsu. Do we want genjutsu monkeys?No, really. It's let us cover that weakness without training it into the ground.>>42610007>>C.No, nothing"Just learning how to summon. I'm Kon, nice to meet you."
>>42610007Seconding>>42610057Maybe ask him if he'd be willing to train us? And/Or offer Konohamaru some training/summoning pointers as well.
>>42610007>A.Ask him something"I'm Kon Karagowa, and I've been learning summoning. Who are you, Sarujizo? What can you do?"
>>42610124>Do we want genjutsu monkeys?Why not?We can do that pink elephants scene from Dumbo to our opponents, but with monkeys.
>>42610165will the monkeys have random silly hats and explosive lauching testicles?
>>42610203Sure, why not?
>>42610124I imagine them being like the Two Great Sage Toads.They'd hang out on our shoulder/Head. Each one covering what they represent on Kon or something but we still kick ass because they trained us to fight blind, deaf and mute.
>>42610284>but we still kick ass because they trained us to fight blind, deaf and mute.Kon becomes Daredevil?
>>42610007"Saru" just means "monkey" and is probably a common prefix for the monkey summons like how "Gama" is for the toads. Jizo, though, that's a pretty badass name. Jizo is the boddhisatva of hell, who descended to preach compassion and enlightenment to devils. He's also the guardian deity of children, saving those lost souls who died before their parents from having to labor eternally on the shores of the Sanzu River. So yeah, let's hope he's as cool as his namesake
>>42610007>>42610118I'll second this.>>42610284Seems like a cool concept. Perhaps mix it with the sonar footstep thing that was mentioned earlier? Fight like Toph?
>>42610284I'm >>42610316Forgot to also reference the Faceless Men.
"Nice to meet you, Sarujizo. I'm Kon Karagowa." you introduce yourself as you offer the monkey some dried fruit. "I'm new to summoning and was just practicing, so you can leave if you don't want to stick around. Though, could you tell me what those masks are for?""A newbie, huh? Figures." Sarujizo says as he munches on the fruit. He takes one of the masks and places it over his face, transforming into a copy of you. "They call me the imitating monkey. I put on a mask, and take the form of someone or something I've seen. So if you ever think you need that, feel free to summon me again. Later."With that, Sarujizo disappears in a puff of smoke. Having seen your success, Konohamaru is now trying even harder to summon.>A.Keep practicing summoning>B.Practice something else>C.Other

>>42610371>B.Practice something elseCool. Let's work on precision when it comes to releasing Impact chakra, see if we can efficiency up by reducing wasted energy. And keep an eye on Konohamaru to make sure he doesn't pass out, of course.
>>42610371>Keep practicing summoning

>>42610371>Keep practicing summoningLet's get our three monkey sensory blunting thing going
>>42610769Let's not. I wasn't gonna say anything, but it's really kind of retarded.
>>42610784Well I liked it.
>>42610784It really is, Also one of Orochi's people already does it.
>>42610784why? It's a good, original (most importantly) concept that has it's roots in ancient times, like so many of these techniques and names, actually might work in theory if you handwavium the superhuman bit and the talking monkeys and is welcomed by the majority
>>42610784I like the idea. Maybe not ask at once, but training one at a time might work out, then we eventually start to use them all together to get more out of training
>>42610487Huh.There names are Mizaru, see no evil.Kikazaru, hear no evil and Iwazaru, speak no evil.They are mystic apes too.There's even a fourth monkey called Shizaru. Who is do no evil (Crosses arms or covers genitals. Ha!)
>>42610861It's not good, and it's up to the QM to design elements like NPCs. Not the players.You're taking an idea YOU think is "cool" and treating it like it's not only possible, but almost as it it's a sure thing.
>>42610769Let's try that out at a later time.Like before the Jounin test.>>42610934I agree, but I also think we should try and be creative with our powers. Experiment and see waht we are and aren't capable of.
>>42610934I never did that at all. I was a guy off to the side who had been just watching and liked the idea and decided to chip in when you spoke out against it. Don't misconstrue me, anon.Also, as a QM myself, taking good ideas from the player base is a very viable and often beneficial idea.
>>42610934Just trying to contribute. You got anything?
>>42610918>Become the world's greatest kickboxer>take on Lee with our epic moves.
>>42610934We're not expecting it to happen. Just kicking ideas around.
>>42610934You're taking an ideal you think is "uncool" and treating it like it's not only unlikely, but just simply never going to happen.
>>42610991It's sensory deprivation face monkeys. What about that doesn't sound like utter shit to you?>>42610992No, because it's not my fucking business to make up our summons. Hell, I didn't even want to keep working on summoning, I wanted to work on applying our chakra control to boost our taijutsu and make our ninjutsu more efficient.
You decide to put summoning aside for now and practice your release. You practice using your release more efficiently with hand signs, and focusing it in your body. After a couple of weeks, imbuing your strikes with Impact chakra is absurdly easy, and you start to practice imbuing weapons with it as well.Konohamaru continues to practice summoning exclusively, and makes little progress. His stamina however, seems to be increasing by leaps and bounds.One day during your training, Sarutobi Sensei comes up to you."We have a lead on Tsunade." he says. "We're headed to Tanzaku Town."The three of you set back on the road.>A.Ask about something as you walk>B.Ask for training advice>C.Try to train on the go>D.Other
>>42611082>A.Ask about something as you walkSo Why is Tsunade so important?
>>42611082>A. So, who's this Tsunade lady? Why are we going after her?>C. Practice that sonar step. Try to get a feel for the nearby terrain with it.
>>42611082>C.Try to train on the goHand seals as we go, just cycle through 'em.>A.Ask about something as you walk"So who exactly is Tsunade, and why did she leave the village?"
>>42611082Seconding>>42611094And also do some strength training along the way, as well as give Sarutobi an update on everyone's progress.
>>42611082>B.Ask for training adviceso we can>C.Try to train on the go
>>42611082>A.Ask about something as you walk"So, uh, you never actually said why we're finding Tsunade. Does it have anything to do with Lord Jiraiya being injured? He seemed pretty badly hurt, and I know he was fighting Orochimaru. Was he poisoned or something?"
>>42611082>>A.Ask about something as you walk"Tsunade's been outside of the village for a long time. Why now?">>C.Try to train on the goWe can practice our hand seals without slowing us down noticeably.
>>42611082>D.OtherAsk Sarutobi-sensei what type of weapon would best compliment the impact release.
>>42611082>>42611120Seconding this. Also counts for Ninjutsu training, I think.
>>42611082>D.Other"As an aside, Konohamaru's not made much progress on Summoning. Is there maybe another technique that might be easier?""His stamina seems to have been growing fast, if that helps."
>>42611120>>42611154I think we'd know who Tsunade is. We're not Naruto, we actually payed attention in class. The Sannin are pretty big names, we'd have heard of them before. We wouldn't know why she left, though, that's personal.
>Kakashi's Hand seals are 5.0Holy shit he a hashirama and can do shit without seals?
>>42611241They could if they practiced doing it
>>42611241One of his nicknames is Kakashi of 1000000000000000000000 jutsus and you're surprised?

>>42611094>>42611105>>42611154>>42611157>>42611168>>42611198You decide to cycle through hand signs for practice as you walk. Konohamaru follows suit.As you practice, you decide to ask something."So why do we need Tsunade to come back to the village?" you ask. "And why did she leave in the first place?""Well the reason she left is quite personal." Sarutobi Sensei answers. "What I will say is that she lost someone important to her and gave up medicine. But now we need her. She is the only person with the medical expertise to help us now. And the future of the village depends on it."Eventually, your group reaches Tanzaku Town. Your teacher decides to head up to the famous Tanzaku castle to get a good look at the surroundings, but when you arrive, it's nowhere to be seen.A man runs by screaming. "It's a giant snake, run for your life!""Orochimaru." the Third mutters.>A.Orochimaru is here?>B.Should we hang back, Sensei?>C.Let's go see, Sensei>D.Other

>>42611624It's a good idea and not one that's mutually exclusive.

>>42611543>Tanzaku castle to get a good look at the surroundings, but when you arrive, it's nowhere to be seenHe leveled an entire castle? Why? That was almost certainly unnecessary, Orochimaru.
>>42611493Fuck, I look away and I come back to the bae. Thank you, anon.>>42611543>A.
>>42611928Castles are unnecessary too when you have ninja running around.
>>42611567>>42611572>>42611573>>42611591>>42611622>>42611651>>42611654"Orochimaru is here?" you ask. You're a bit hesitant to jump straight into battle with a sannin."So it would seem." the Third states. "We have no time to lose, follow me, but stay behind me!"The three of you rush up to the castle, but by the time you arrive, there is nothing there but rubble.Disheartened yet relieved, Sarutobi Sensei sets out to find a place to eat and maybe get some information. The three of you stop at a tavern, and Sarutobi Sensei stops in the entrance."Tsunade!" he calls."Sarutobi Sensei?" you hear in response. "What are you doing here?"He sits at the woman's table and calls you and Konohamaru over. Tsunade herself is blonde with a purple diamond on her forehead. Somehow you thought she'd look older. Next to her sits a woman with black hair, holding a tiny pig."I'm going to cut right to the chase, Tsunade." your teacher states. "The future of the village depends on your return to medicine. The man to be the next Hokage, Itachi Uchiha, he is very ill. Without treatment, he will die. You are the only one who can do it, Tsunade.">End of Chapter 20Running again tomorrowTwitter is @LazeQMSticking around
>>42612009...wait fucking what?This makes senseBut it still caught me completely by surprise
>>42612009Thanks for running LazeAlso what kind of gains did we get in this Chapter?
>>42612009So what did our training net us gains-wise?
>>42612064>>426120650.5 nin0.5 hand seals
>>42612009See! Almost certainly unnecessary! You are a dick, Orochimaru. Though I guess we already knew that.Anyway, thanks for running, Laze. See you tomorrow.
>>42612038Itachi getting fucked up beyond repair got me tooAnd it makes sense why we would even go after TsunadeWell played Laze, well played.
>>42612097Pretty good.Can't wait to beef up strength.
>>42612097What gains did Sasuke have in this past bit of time? No, I don't think it's unhealthy to phrase everything in terms of comparison to him, why do you ask?
>>42612097fuck yeah Hand seals 2.0 and Ninjutsu 3.0Also how much did our chakra control improve compared to before?
>>42612148You'll have to wait until you see him again>>42612156A good amount
>>42612009Thanks for running, Laze.>>42612038>>42612107It makes sense. Didn't even think about it, but now it's obvious enough that I feel rather foolish.
>>42612128Thing is this way we don't even have to touch strength for the time being. Our release and chakra control let us punch way higher above the numbers.We're like canon Sakura, except we're competent and have actual techniques.
>>42612166Kons coming up in the world guys!What does Konohamaru think of us?
>>42612219I'd rather get strength buffed up anyway.
>>42612236You're the Aniki he never had
>>42612219but In-Universe sakura has better tai than usWho am i kidding Lee still wrecks her and we fucked him up
>>42612236We need to come up with a combination jutsu with him. Just so we can call it the Double Kon Special.
>>42612166Hey Laze.What do you think of a three mystic monkey summon or do you have a roster of summons already made?
>>42612266I think it's a mistaken priority, but I can understand the temptation. I don't like having things under 2.0.Genjutsu too, but the thinky half of my brain tells me that's never going to be useful in the fights we're getting into anyway.
>>42612304Kon Over Kon Rising Leaf Splendour.
>>42612308I was actually going to have monkeys based on sanzaru
>>42612328It might, so I'd like to beef those two stats up.>>42612363I love it.>>42612278Archive says it's forbidden to see.So link to the moe archive next thread.
>>42612328yeah but we should at least have shit at a minimum of 2.0 if we wanna be a good jounin that's prepared for most scenarios
>>42612393It's working fine for me, but I could add a moe link in the OP anyway
>>42612443Not working for me, so it'd be nice.
>>42612328Genjutsu resistance/detection etc is covered under that stat.It's not just knowing how to use it, its knowing how to not get screwed by the people that do.
>>42612443I'm >>42612455 and >>42612393It's now working after I deleted the cookies from my browser.
>>42612393We're absolutely not good enough at genjutsu for it to be useful against Jonin or S-Rank nin. Now if we buffed it to 3-4 MAYBE it would be worth doing, but getting that .5 at a time instead of putting that to other skills divides our efforts too much for too little benefit.For now, treat it as our dump stat. And since our Speed and Stamina absolutely don't need any improvement and won't for a while, that leaves Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and Hand Seals as things we can improve on this trip.When we get back to the village we should hit the books, probably with Tenten.
>>42612443So laze, how does it feel to run a quest that consistently has gotten 300+ replies and 40+ posters???
Hey, Laze, is there a reason you seem to be avoiding extended conversations with most of the characters? It seems to be 'Make a comment, get a reply, scene change!'
>>42612498Laze is lazy.
>>42612304K.K RallyK.K. SoulK.K. SonataK.K. WaltzIn just naming K.K. Slider songs
>>42612493Pretty good>>42612498I'm terrible at dialogueAlso I want to keep moving the plot since we're still retreading
>>42612415We're not at the point where we should be worrying about ranking up. We only just made Chunin, Jonin will come in time.>>42612480And most of the people who USE it that we'll encounter have 4's or 5's. Getting a 2 just doesn't seem worthwhile.Build our strengths until we can stand against the insane things on those terms. Don't try and slightly improve things that wont really help.
>>42612148>>42612166Sasuke's probably at the point he was in canon, where he's slowed down development-wise. And given that Itachi hasn't murdered his whole clan, there's probably less driving him. So it seems reasonable to think we may really be catching up to him.>>42612166So how proficient are we now at amplifying our taijutsu with Impact release? Can it be sustained for a long fight without being too taxing to allow other techniques?
>>42612573But how can we change the plot if we never have a chance to interact with characters in unique ways?
>>42612712Yeah, you're pretty good at it by now. If you were in a fight and did no other jutsu, you could use Impact release for every single hit and not get any more tired than usual>>42612718Your contributions to the plot will remain smaller for a bit longer. Part 1 is more about how events shape you, than Part 2 which will be more of you shaping eventsIt's a thematic thing
>>42612833Would just normal chakra-enhanced punches be less taxing even than that? Because if memory serves it's just shifting it internally, not expending it.
>>42612833I still hope we get to smack Tsunade when she starts dissing our parents and their sacrifice.It probably won't end well, but that's okay.
>>42612894Yes, they wouldIn canon, Tsunade and Sakura can pretty much do that shit indefinitely
>>42612833Will we get a chance to do actual chunin stuff?Like leading squads of older but less talented genin on more regular missions? Like blowing stuff up in the land of Rice.
>>42612929So we're gonna start using Hanuman muay thai, right?
>>42612922>inb4 we use feedback on her chakra infused fist>it'll hurt like a bitch but she'll feel it too>She takes a liking to us cuz we just tanked one of her hits and gave it back to her
>>42612929>>42612983Impact Release: Hanuman Thundering Fists Technique
>>42612940>Like blowing stuff up in the land of Rice.Of course we get to blow up stuff in the land of rice/sound. They did just declare war on us after all.
>>42612940You will get to do chunin stuff, as you should be a chunin for some time>>42612983That sounds pretty cool
>>42612990You know, everytime I think about this power, I imagine we're Shirou at the end of the Heaven's Feel route...Kon versus crazy priest to protect Tenten when?
>>42613422Who and what?
>>42613452Main protagonist of Fate/stay Night and Heaven's Feel is one of the routes.
>>42613474Ah, that novel got boring after I purposely died the first time.
>>42613474I guessed Fate/Stay Night, but wasn't sure.
>>42613474Man. Want to play fate/extra on vita but cant find it in onlinepsn store.What a luck
>>42613508Persevere and get good, anon.
>>42612990When do we double the damage that feedback gives?
>>42613422Tenten's actually a bit ahead of the curve. At this point she's in good shape to not be a worthless piece of crap like Sakura, Ino-pig, and Hinata were before the timeskip.Not exactly damsel in distress material.
>>42613541Hey, I am the best at dying, and I feel my story concluded as well as it could have if it took Hercules to take me down.
>>42613518Well, at least there's going to be a Heaven's Feel movie now. Shirou versus Kotomine should be good.
>>42613560That would be good.We need to train it tho>>42613577Rin route?I prefer medusa
>>42613567That is a point no one addressed, at this point, Tenten has the same number of stat points as Canon end of Part 1 Tenten, so she is in fact ahead of the curve
>>42613567Listen, man, if the priest seeks to destroy the world and everything you hold dear simply because it is the only thing that can bring him pleasure, then I think everyone is a damsel if you fail.
>>42613617>destroy the worldSo you mean to say that the World is the damsel in distress?
>>42613605No, Unlimited Blades Works is the Rin route and there's a great anime adaption for it now. Heaven's Feel is Sakura's (not Naruto Sakura) route.
>>42613659And by extension, Tenten is.Actually, Pein is the closest thing to a Kotomine we have in this world, so I'm fairly certain we'll get fucked either way.
>>42613616So, Laze, what DOES Tenten think of us?
>>42613616So I also noticed that the only Leaf team with no Chunin on it now is Team Guy.How are they taking it?
>>42613724Already told us thatso heres a TL;DRShe really likes us
>>42613567To give Hinata some credit, at least she's crushing on a boy for qualities he actually had, as opposed to Ino and Sakura who basically projected crap onto Emo.
>>42613731They have redoubled their training.
>>42613721Ya really love thems fate/
>>42613731Are sakuras tears salty and delicious?
>>42613767I won't deny that I have a boner for Fate. Also, the Heaven's Feel route is best because Sakura is too lovable and pure.
>>42613763>Lee passes Kon in town, walking on his hands with a boulder perched on his feet>continues on one hand to wave to Kon>Kon is making hand seals as fast as physically possible>waves back with one hand, other hand continues weaving hand seals as if nothing's changed
>>42613762Also, Hinata is best girl for Naruto for sure. Tenten is just better for Kon though.
>>42613851>Tenten>not deidaraCmon man
>>42613970Let me guess... It's the mouths on the palms that does it for you, isn't it?
>>42614007DudeIts like triple bj in one packetIt doesnt even talk too>>42614007I was hoping for a bomb joke but you blew it
>>42614007Handjob AND a blowjob. At the same time. Also, those dextrous fingers...he can make anything he touches explode. In more ways than one~
>>42614007If you squint really hard you can make it look like a vagina.
>>42614083... with teeth and a tongue? Where do you live where that's what a vagina looks like?
>>42614073>>42614078>>42614083You people are the vilest example of all that humanity can offer of our virtues and would find better homes in the caverns of Gehenna known as /d/ and /pol/.You're my kind of people.
>>42614166Damn, did you need to drop that bomb?
>>42614179You mean we are vanillafag?
>>42614179>You people are the vilest example of all that humanity can offer of our virtues and would find better homes in the caverns of Gehenna known as /d/ and /pol/.How rude. Have some tact man.
>>42614129I come from Australia, if they aren't venomous enough to render me immobile and in excruciating pain until I die, I can fuck it. Just learn to squint. Hard.
>All of these punsDidn't we have this talk like...16 threads ago?
techniques we should make:defenestrating sphere.Gravity Hammer(think Halo and then apply that to the weight on the end of our cord)soul shattering strike(think infused punch, but not letting the shockwave disperse, concentrated in a single direction.
>>42614221I'm a fat man
I still want to create an aura of flesh disintegration when we're jonin.
>>42614285Really? These jokes make you seem like a little boy.
>>42614300>Really bad roller skate punWas that bad enough to stop it?
>>42614293I think you mean Sage, or Kage. Because that'd be a HELL of a high level technique, even for a Jonin.
Wonder how Tenten feels that Kon just up and ran off again for weeks at a time?
>>42614419I expect a few punches to the gut without us using our release and then a few months of absolutely no talking with us.
>>42614419She's kind of annoyed, but even she'd admit that training with the Third is too good to pass up
>>42614293How bout using our kekkai as a trap?a lazer C4 trap?
>>42614487D4C?I can dream...
>>42614483We'll make it up to her somehow. Something cute and endearing with many apologizes might make it up.Note to self and anons, must think of apology gift for Tenten.
>>42614483Would she feel better if we helped her train some?
>>42614534There ya gothe greatest gift>>42614540And add some innocent lewd too
>>42614540>>42614556>>42614569Maybe show her the trick to chakra-enhanced taijutsu? Her strength isn't exactly outstanding either.
>>42614580>>42614570>>42614540Cuddles, training, and Kusanagi? That works with me.
>>42614615>Sorry I ran off without telling you, I was kind of too excited to think>How about I teach you to demolish buildings with your fists as an apology?
>>42614664Damn, Tenten's even more of a cute when wearing a flak jacket.
>>42614664>With fist>Not with shurikenstep it up, chunnin
>>42614723That's... not how that technique works. Like at all.Not even close.
>>42614795>>42614723>>42614664>Not throwing a monkey with explosives at the buildingFucking plebs the lot of you.
Just thought of something. If naruto had someone to encourage him to study and raise him to value his education, he would have become the smartest man alive. Using shadow clone training, he could have read entire libraries in a matter of days. He could get a PhD level education in a weekend, and just grow exponentially intellectually. Kinda a shame he was a dunce and lazy about books.
>>42614994We should ask Sarutobi to teach us the shadow clone jutsu so we can do that
>>42614994the shadow clone training is hilariously overpowered. It could be used for ANYTHING
So, Laze, has Haku finally accepted his place as the girliest shinobi in the village?Will he ever hook up with second best boy, Sai?
