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 leader 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. Soon, the Chunin exams will begin!
>>42633128Hanto gathers up the body parts and head of Makoto, and puts them into a sack. Everyone is quiet and stiff, still recovering from the adrenaline of battle. Hanto jumps onto one of the horses, and ties the bag of Makoto to it's side. He turns to everyone and starts to speak. "Seeing as we're without transportation at the moment, me and Yosuke are going to advance to the Hidden Cloud ourselves and deliver Makoto. Mirai will bring everyone else back to the village, where you can all report on what happened. If you go now you should make it by morning. I know it's going to be a long trek for everyone, but there is some critical information that needs to be delivered. Mirai, I trust you're fully aware of the situation. What this entails." The younger Jounin nods, looking grim. "Of course. Makoto has likely been in the land of Fire since he left the Cloud. This explains how he's been getting all of this information. Planting agents. Making plans. We'll let the Seventh know." She turns to everyone, and smiles. "Amazing job, everyone. You've outdone yourselves time and time again." Yosuke approaches the Genin, and goes around shaking everyone's hand and giving his goodbyes. When he comes up to you, he grips your hand tightly, and pulls you in closer. You get a good look at his eyes, and there's a deep intensity there behind mask of playfulness. Yosuke smiles. "Takeshi, will I be seeing you at the Chunin exams?" You blink. "I'm not sure. That's up to my sensei. I've only very recently graduated, I haven't been on very many missions."Hanto, from his horse, chuckles. "Yet you've already completed a B rank mission. Yes, Yosuke. My whole squad will be participating in the Chunin exams. Unless, you all have any objections to that?"
>>42633165Everyone arrives at the gates of the Leaf village in the early morning, and says their goodbyes. Mirai says that she'll handle the report and make sure everyone's payments are delivered, and all of the exhausted Genin head home. You open the door to your apartment and find your bro asleep, and you immediately jump into bed and pass out. You sleep until the very next morning, in fact. Making a twenty four hour trip with no sleep, and two combat encounters can be fairly draining for a twelve year old. When you wake up, it's about nine in the morning. You don't have anything to do today. You get shower, get dressed, and enjoy a big breakfast that you cook yourself, leaving some for your brother. When you go to leave, there's an envelope sitting in front of your door. You open it up and find that it's your payment for the mission, and a sizable one at that. You tuck the money away, and now have roughly 25,000 Ryo. You know for a fact that no Genin would normally have this much cash, but the way your sensei has been picking missions always seems to be focused around getting the most money possible. You chuckle as you exit the door, and stretch in the morning sunlight. You have the entire Leaf village to yourself. Where will you go? >A.Go to the town center.>B.Go to the market.>C.Go to the training field.>D.Go to the Academy and study.>E.Visit the Hokage Monument.>F.Go to someone's house. (Sarada)>G.Go to the Flower Shop>H.Go to the Special Weapons shop.
>>42633192>F.Go to someone's house. (Sarada)ayy gurl u want sum fuk
>>42633192>>H.Go to the Special Weapons shop.
>>42633192>F.Go to someone's house. (Sarada)
>>42633192Seek out the Hokage
>>42633192>>42633333This. I believe we were promised a jutsu.
>>42633128>"Takeshi, will I be seeing you at the Chunin exams?"Oh shit, bro/rival get?>>42633192>H.Go to the Special Weapons shop.See if we can get any recommendations from Auntie Tenten on a good weapon to compliment our style.
>>42633192Can we visit bro? Ask his advice on the chuunin exams?
>>42633333oh woops, forgot to change E to just visit the Hokage. also nice get
>>42633192>G.Go to the Flower ShopLet's get that Paralytic poison!
>>42633364You'll be seeing him later tonight for sure.
>>42633192>>F.Go to someone's house. (Sarada)Let's get the book first then go see naruto
>>42633192>>E.Visit the Hokage Monument.
>>42633192>G.Go to the Flower Shop
>>42633192>E.Visit the HokageI'm sure he knows Himawari is safe since we got back yesterday, but it's always good to report back with what happened when someone gives you a job/asks for a favor
Time for the best quest on /tg/ with the best girls that have the best genesSeriously, Hyuga genes are powerful, I can't decide between Himawari and Mari.Guess we have time either way, probably won't get to waifu anything until some sort of time so
First thing's first, you're going to see the Hokage. He offered to teach you a jutsu as a reward for keeping his daughter safe, and with the upcoming Chunin exams, you intend to follow through on that. You make your way to the Hokage monument and proceed inside, making your way up to Naruto's office. When you enter, he's working through a stack of paperwork, obviously bored to death. You knock on the doorframe to announce your presence. "Lord Hokage?" Naruto's eyes flick upwards, and they brighten. He smiles and motions for you to come in. "Hey, Takeshi. I heard from Mirai that your mission went very well, despite a certain complication. Trust me, I know how things like that can go. From what I understand, you also did good on your promise." Naruto stands up, and makes his way over to you. He reaches out and grasps your hand, and shakes it roughly. "You saved Himawari. I'll never be able to repay you for that. I'm guessing that you came here for that jutsu I promised you, huh?"You nod. "That's right. The Chunin exams are coming up soon, and I want to use today well. I figured what's better than a lesson from the Hokage?" Naruto laughs boisterously, and puts his hands on his hips. "Smart! Well, normally I'd jump at the chance to teach you, but.."He turns, and looks at the stack of paperwork on his desk. You're not sure, but you think you saw Naruto shudder. He turns back to you. "Forget it! I can make time! Now, Takeshi, what sort of Jutsu would you like to learn? Just give me an idea and I'll tell you what I know." >A. Offensive Ninjutsu>B. Defensive Ninjutsu>C. Utility Ninjutsu>D. Genjutsu>E. Taijutsu >F. Write-in
>>42633771>B. Defensive NinjutsuWe lack the ability to tank hits or not get hit should our illusions fail
>>42633771>C. Utility Ninjutsu
>>42633771What do you suggest Hokage?
>>42633771>B. Defensive Ninjutsu
>>42633771>F. Write-in"Sh-shadow clones?"
>>42633771>>C. Utility NinjutsuAlso we need to find out our chakra nature
>>42633718I gotta go with Himawari.It's at least partially due to the willingness to say "fuck that" to the Hyuugas' whole "purity of unarmed combat" thing.>>42633771>C. Utility NinjutsuWe shall be the master of utility.
>>42633863Sexy jutsu is just a transformation, you can already do it
>>42633771>>C. Utility Ninjutsuplease for the love of god let this be shadow clones
>>42633948>Shadow Clones>Not having Fuck you levels of ChakraWe'd be better off without them.
>>42633976Eh considering thaty you know everything they know don't remember if GAINS are apart of that when they disappear even one is valuable as shit
>>42634048We do learn as they learn, but at our chakra we'd pop out 2-3 and be drained. completely useless for combat, and those fuckers pop super easily.
>>42634114Yeah I know that's why I said one Hell it could be a training tech we pop one out every few hours go do shit while he does shit rinse repeat etc etc
>>42634175Depends on how much chakra it burns.
>>42634015Holy shit that's amazing.
>>42633128>BorutoSo'it's a crossover between Naruto and Borat?
>>42634209Boruto is Naruto's Son.
You think for a few moments on what you could best utilize. Something more general, for utility. Instead of focusing on offense or defense you prefer the idea of something useful out of combat, or as a supplement to combat itself. Naruto brings a finger to his chin and seems to think for a short while, probably organizing the Jutsu he knows. Suddenly, he starts. "Well, there are a few different techniques I know like that. The first one is my trademark Shadow Clone Jutsu, but, it's really hard to learn. You have to have a lot of chakra to use it effectively, and I was only able to learn it as a kid because of the Nine Tails. Then there's the Oil Bomb jutsu, which is a bit simpler. It lets you spit oil in order to supplement a fire technique, or create a slippery surface to trip up opponents. Then there's the Torpedo Needle jutsu, which lets you hide needles in the ground, and make them pop up whenever you want to trap someone. Oh, and one of my favorites! The Shadow Shuriken technique. It's simple, but it can be very effective. I can teach you how to hide a weapon in the shadow of another weapon, for a sneak attack. If you don't know it, I can also teach you the Body Flicker technique. It lets you dash very quickly in a straight line, and can be useful in dodging or attacking. What do you think?>A. Shadow Clone Jutsu>B. Oil Bomb Jutsu>C. Torpedo Needle Jutsu>D. Shadow Shuriken Jutsu>E. Body Flicker Jutsu
>>42634332>D. Shadow Shuriken Jutsuor>E. Body Flicker JutsuElemental clones are far easier to learn and less stress on the body.
>>42634332>B. Oil Bomb JutsuSounds really useful to me.
>>42634332>E. Body Flicker Jutsu
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>42634332>Clone - 1>Flick - 2So how was the fourth and second hokages movement techniques different again?
>>42634332>>A. Shadow Clone Jutsui just have to its so damn verstile i know we can make the hundreds the Naruto can be even if its only one or two we can still get a lot done with it
>>42634332>>E. Body Flicker JutsuToo good
>>42634447the fourth was better at it and based his entire style around it as opposed to the second who used a lot of water
Reminder that the eugenics meme doesn't make sense because Neji had far better genes than Hinata and they let him die. Any Eugenecist worth his salt knows Primogeniture is complete trash
>>42634467>i know we cancant*
>>42634332>E. Body Flicker Jutsu>>42634482Neji couldn't have kids with Naruto or Saskue.
>>42634447The Body Flicker isn't even remotely similar to the Flying Thunder God. Flying Thunder God is literal teleportation using seals. Body Flicker is just a short range, high speed dash.
Can we hook up with hanabi instead of any of these other girls?
>>42634513So is there a chance for us to improve the technique later on to at least get it close to Flying Thunder God?
>>42634511He could've married a descendant later. Lads are viable marriage partners until they're 35, Women beging to decline at 19t. The Romans
>>42634482>Neji had far better genes than Hinata and they let him dieTwo things:Neji had kind of a thing going with Tenten, who's a lowly commoner with no special genes, meaning his kids would have been detrimental to the plan.Hinata was more valuable to the plan long-term because she could get those sweet, sweet Uzumaki genes into the line.
>>42634548She would be way older than us, if not married too by now.
>>42634550No. The flying thunder god is a completely different kind of jutsu. >>42634548Hanabi is a Jounin now
>>42634476>>42634513SickHow do we get it
>>42634638I think the technique died with the fouth
>>42634655no he taught it to like 3 people who used it to teleport the mist kage to fight madra uchiha
>>42634638Super high level sealing jutsu, and sealing jutsu are their own subclass of ninjutsu like medical jutsu that you'd have to learn. You wouldn't be able to learn it until way later.>>42634655It's attainable
>>42634638By being the Forth Hokage.
>>42634598Does she have a daughter at least?
>>42634687That doesnt change that it's one of THE most advanced jutsus, is a Seal techniques, which are notoriously rare and difficult in the series, and that it's almost undoubtedly secret.Besides, no reason to bite the style of the fourth, we should learn something more befitting of the style were building to.
>>42634638Git Gud at summoning and chakra control for starters
>>42634772Can't think of a single style that Teleporting doesn't support Even puppet masters would be enhanced with it
So learning this jutsu will probably take the test of the day.If Himawari skies up at the end to say hi to Naruto we should ask her to get some ice cream and say it's to thank her for helping us out on the mission
>>42634821Hell even Sasuke does it
>>42634869Skies? No, I meant shows.If she shows up
>>42634869I wouldn't be opposed to it. She's cute as shit.
>mfw Takeshi becomes the playboy of this generation
>>42634382>>42634415>>42634440>>42634447>>42634473https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZeyNVms7jw"I'd like to learn the Body Flicker Jutsu. It sounds like it could be super useful." Naruto smiles. "That's right. It's a fairly low level Jutsu, but mastering it could mean the difference between life or death in the future. The concept of it is simple. Focus Chakra in your feet to propel yourself in any direction. Uh, you have learned the Tree Walking Jutsu, right?"You nod. "I learned it not too long ago." Naruto nods. "Good. Then this should be easy, since you've already developed your chakra control enough. I don't know if this happened to you while training, but if you focused too much chakra at the bottom of your feet when you tried to walk, what happened?"You think for a moment, and remember. "The bark exploded."Naruto starts to walk to the other end of the room. "That's right. The principle here is just that. Using Chakra to explode forward! Here's a demonstration." Naruto inhales for just a second, and he takes a single step forward. Suddenly he's directly beside you again, in less than the blink of an eye. You didn't even hear him move. He looks down at you. "It won't be quite that fast or effective until you completely master it, learning to do it on reaction with minimal noise is the goal. The secret to not destroying the floor when you launch off, is to take a single step in the direction that you want to go. Your feet will burst with chakra and propel you forward, using the angle of your heel to push off. If you remain flat footed, you'll go straight up in the air, and probably damage whatever you're standing on. Why don't we go outside and practice?"
>>42635013You both go up to the top of the building, and start to train. It takes you some effort, but it's not long before your dashing all over the rooftop. You're nowhere near as fast or quiet as Naruto. In fact, the technique is a bit noisy. You think that you mostly have it down, and you approach a napping Naruto. You shake his shoulder and he snaps awake. "Huh!? Wha?! Did you get it?" You nod. "I think so. It takes me a second to prepare, since this jutsu doesn't use handseals. That and it's pretty loud."Naruto smiles. "That reminds me. It's good to try and use leaves or smoke to obscure your movement, when using this technique."The Hokage stands up, and stretches. "Thanks for giving me an excuse to-, I mean, I'm glad I could help, Takeshi. I've gotta go catch up on some work before a lot of people get really mad at me. I'll see you later!" You wave goodbye, and Naruto vanishes in a puff of smoke. You realize that it was a Shadow Clone this whole time! Where is the real Naruto, then? Doesn't seem like you'll get an answer. Either way, you've learned the Body Flicker technique! Where to go now?>A.Go to the town center.>B.Go to the market.>C.Go to the training field.>D.Go to the Academy and study.>E. Go home and see if your brother is there.>F.Go to someone's house. (Sarada)>G.Go to the Flower Shop>H.Go to the Special Weapons shop.
>>42635051>H.Go to the Special Weapons shop.
>>42635051>CDo people still call him the Orange Spark?
>>42635051>>C.Go to the training field.Run up and down tress for chakra control and speed training.
>>42635051>>C.Go to the training field.
>>42635051>G.Go to the Flower ShopNeed that Paralyzing poison for non-lethal takedown
>>42635051>C.Go to the training field.Start using the body flicker to get there, gotta use every chance to practice and master it before the Chunin exams.
>>42635148it only moves you like ten meters. you'd pass out before you got half way there.
>>42635165Glorious leg day training + Glorious stamina trainingI see nothing wrong with this
>>42635051>>F.Go to someone's house. (Sarada)Can we get the book now?
>>42635204Except for wasting an entire day because you passed out. This is the last day you have to prepare before the exams. You would get no benefit from that.
>>42635235So you're saying it would be...reckless?
>>42635235>This is the last day you have to prepare before the examsWow it really was soon. Didn't think it was that soon though.
>>42635235>>42635256There goes that kid, teleporting all over the place again. How reckless. He should think more long.term.
>>42635093He got called that like once during the war
>>42635294Well, hanto said that it would be in a couple of days, yesterday. So tomorrow.
>>42635051>F.Go to someone's house. (Sarada)
>>42635323So then it might be a good idea to go and visit Sarada to get that book then, since one of the test area's is the forest of death. Won't hurt to improve our medical jutsu.
We really need that medical ninjutsu guys
>>42635377Not sure that less than a day is enough time to get the most out of the book though.
>>42635377>>42635431We need much better Chakra control to do anything medical wise according to Mini.
>>42635377That girl on our team probably knows enough to get us through safely.
>>42635441There were two jutsu that you had time to read about the last time you looked at the book, although you didn't have time to learn them then.
PEOPLE WANTED TO GET SHADOW CLONE FOR UTILITY.We are not Naruto so fuck using them for combat. But you know what? We can have one clone study from books while we train physically, then dismiss the clone and get its knowledge. I am sure we could at least maintain ONE clone.
>>42635467We could always read the book while tree walking. After all Ninja's are capable of doing a variety of other things while sticking to walls. Then can even stand on the ceiling while watching a movie.
>>42635483Get Water Clones. They're way more badass.
>>42635051>C.Go to the training field.Pick up Ai and Kichiro on the way. We need to be able to coordinate better than we already do if we want to get through this.
>>42635474>Apparently it involves learning both the standard healing technique, as well as the Chakra Scalpel Jutsu, and a poison extraction technique. So which ones where we close to learning or can learn if we go back?
>>42635483thats why i wanted it we could study and train at the same time
>>42635506As long as we get their memories, then I agree wholeheartedly, since we could do more as they are less chakra intensive and I believe they can withstand more abuse... Can they?>In b4 laser clones.
>>42635506Depends. We'll need to have a water type nature, or a nature that has access to it.
>>42635506Shadow clones specifically allow the transmission of thoughts and memories and experiences and sage chakra to apparently
>>42635525You don't know where they live
>>42635051>C.Go to the training field.
>>42635051>D.Go to the Academy and study.
>>42635565No, but they cost less and only need water to be made. A simple mist jutsu makes creating them piss simple.
>>42635587Alright, we'll ask Hanto where they live.I feel as if our team isn't really a team. Sure we work together on missions, but we haven't really bonded.
>>42635474Mini, are shadow clones the only clones that allow for user to receive their memories, or it works with other clones too?
>>42635633Hanto is currently at the Cloud village. You don't know where he lives either.And yeah your group is sort of anti-social.>>42635636Only Shadow Clones.
>>42635607Well, that is the thing. People didn't want shadow clones for combat.They wanted to at least be able to create ONE shadow clone so that we can essentially double our training. Triple it, when we can maintain two clones. Since they can learn the mental stuff, read books, etc, while we train physically.
>>42635597You know, I wonder if it would be viable to look up what sort of wildlife is in the forest of death. Both animal or plants. That way we could know if there are things that are poisonous or not. Maybe go and buy grab common anti-venom if there is.
>>42635686We'd be training with our Chakra depleted. Sounds intense.
>>42635706What's in the forest of death is kept secret. Although having information in general about plants or animals is a good idea.
Now that everyone's had a little more time to think things through we'll do a revote.>A. Go to the training field.>B. Go to the special weapons shop>C. Go to the flower shop>D. Go to the Academy and study>E. Go to Sarada's house
>>42635733Obviously we don't make them for chakra related training, unless it leaves enough of our chakra for it. I mean, we spent one whole day training how to throw senbon, that does not use much chakra, no?>Captcha tells me to choose pics with oranges.>It thinks lemons are oranges and didn't want me to go until I picked them
>>42635793>D. Go to the Academy and study
>>42635793>E. Go to Sarada's house
>>42635793>D. Go to the Academy and studyI still think we should get Paralyzing poison from flower shop though.
>>42635793>D. Go to the Academy and studyAny info or jutsu we can dig up would be useful.
>>42635793>>D. Go to the Academy and study>>E. Go to Sarada's houseWhichever has the medical book
>>42635793>D. Go to the Academy and studyFinds some cool new jutsus
>>42635793>>D. Go to the Academy and study
Guys, we still need to learn the senbon bell jutsu. You know, the one that the hidden sound village ninja used in the series?It could give us just the edge we need in the chuunin exam prelims!
Didn't Sarada say that she would contact us when she wants to study again?
>>42635997Yeah, but pestering her is totally effective too
>>42636016>Sarada's face after we pester her into studying with us enough times, but suddenly stop
You decide to the head to the Academy, and continue your training. You're sure that your team is hard at work as well, and you don't wish to waste any time. You make your way into the library, finding it mostly empty, and begin to browse. All around you are books on different subjects. You also return the book on Genjutsu that you had, although you can still look at it if you wish, here.What do you want to read about?>A. Book on Elemental Natures.>B. Book on Flora and Fauna>C. Book on Genjutsu>D. Book on Taijutsu methods.
>>42636231>>B. Book on Flora and Fauna
>>42636231>B. Book on Flora and Fauna
>>42636231>A.Book on Elemental Natures
>>42636231>C. Book on Genjutsu
>>42636231>>A. Book on Elemental Natures.
>>42636231>A. Book on Elemental Natures.We need this guys.
>>42636231>A. Book on Elemental Natures
>A, Book on Elemental NaturesWe need to up our reflexes so that it's as if we nearly stop time...Or actually get a ninjutsu that stops time the same way our brain thinks so fast(our discussions here) that the time stops.HOW LONG CAN YOU MOVE WITHIN THE FROZEN TIME, BORUTO?
>>42636231>>A. Book on Elemental Natures
>>42636404I don't think any level of ninjutsu can actually alter time.Maybe something like Itachi's genjutsu?
>>42636231>>C. Book on Genjutsu
>>42636231>A. Book on Elemental NaturesIt's always a good thing to spec into
>>42636432Or a combined paralysis/telekinesis/wind manipulation(for keeping objects in place) combined with genjutsu.When we want someone to see us move within the "frozen time" we just drop the genjutsu that keeps them from noticing anything during our "frozen time" period. Then we PRETEND we are furious that they can see us... We make the person think they won against us and that they are the only ones who can do anything in the "frozen time" and we run. So that we can troll that guy later.
>>42636231>A. Book on Elemental Natures.
>>42636532So... Some bullshit trolling based on the final battle of Stardust Crusaders?Nah, let's learn to make a sensor web using strings attached to senbon.
>>42636586But how long can YOU move within the frozen time, BORUTO?!
>>42636631Long enough to ORAORAORA us with shadow clones.
>>42636711... how DOES boruto fight?
>>42636711We can Checkmate him with a shitload of senbon, though.
>>42636763Remember Naruto?Think Naruto, but without the ninetails.I think.
>>42636404I am not getting this reference...
>>42636763>>42636711We need to learn seals and store a Road Roller in them.Then we either throw it or use it as Kawarimi. We can always even just go above a person, unseal the road roller and it falls onto them.
>>42636776We still don't have a way to launch senbons from different directions. We're far from being able to checkmate Boruto.>>42636797JoJo's bizarre adventure.
>>42636763>>42636784It's more like Shikamaru and Naruto fused together, without the ninetails.
>>42636784So basically like Naruto except he doesn't have the Ninetails as a convenient excuse for all the bullshit he does.
>>42636818Ah, but we know a name of a technique that does that in a way.The Torpedo Needle technique that Naruto wanted to teach us. Maybe someone else knows it or such?
>>42636263>>42636292>>42636354>>42636360>>42636404You begin to read the book on Elemental Natures, having grown curious after seeing other Genin with the ability to use them. You remember your sensei mentioning something about it being rather uncommon, but it seems that all sorts know how to use it. You begin to absorb the first few chapters of the book. Apparently Elemental Natures are the process of changing the very nature of your chakra. There are five basic chakra natures, which are the foundation of all elemental ninjutsu. Wind, Water, Earth, Fire and Lightning. Each individual also has a natural affinity to an Element, which denotes that element as being easier to learn. There is apparently a special type of paper used to discover what sort of elemental affinity a shinobi has, and it's available for purchase where ever shinob equipment is sold. You review the five basic elements, and memorize the strengths and weaknesses of each. It's now early in the afternoon. What do you want to do?>A.Go home>B.Go to the special weapons shop>C.Go to the flower shop>D.Go to Sarada's house>E.Go home and see if your brother is there.>F.Write-in
>>42636921>D.Go to Sarada's houseGet that book, gotta learn poison extraction and we should have enough time to go to the shop afterwards.
>>42636921>B.Go to the special weapons shopWe're getting that paper!It's happening!

>>42636921SARADA! I think she can still win us round. Besides I want to study.

>>42636921>D.Go to Sarada's house
>>42636921>B.Go to the special weapons shopThen>C.Go to the flower shop
>>42636921Go to special weapons shop.we need to buy more weapons, better weapons and Elemental paper
>>42636921>>B.Go to the special weapons shop
>>42636921>B Then >D We really need that book
Who wants to kick Sarada's ass in the Exam?It might be just what we need to get her to stop be a bitch to us.
>>42637129I'd love to, if it's possible. Which I doubt.
I'm kinda sad nobody else wants to get better and more versatile poisons. And antidotes for what we have should we need it.
>>42637129I want Sarada or Mari. Little H is too uguu for me. Also my phone has uguu as a registered word in its dictionary, kek
>>42637179We lack the time to do them justice. If we had a week or two I'd be up for it, but now we're kinda in a bind for time.
>>42637179I do too, but the shop will be there tommorow. I want to brag to Saladfu while we still have the euphoria of having done a good job
>>42637192>Sarada>Not AiSarada's a bitch who's done nothing but impede our progress.
>>42637204I'm fairly certian being able to coat our Kunai or Senbon with a different poison isn't that much to learn. Paralyzing your opponent by locking up their muscles is extremely effective afterall.
>>42637221Ai is a super autist, Salad is just being Tsundere
>>42637302>Sarada>Not autisticMari is the Tsundere, not Sarada.Ai is probably the incredibly loyal one.
>>42637302She's being a bitch is what she is being.
>>42637268Hit the flower shop then. Point is we're going to pay through the nose for it, which we can't afford atm.
>>42637346We don't even know how much it is though. Can't say we can't offord it if we haven't even seen the prices.
>>42637327Mari is my first choice anyway, but I'll even go for little Choji before Ai, I swear
>>42637397Ai isn't bad, we just haven't gotten to know her.Which is a major problem. Our team is pretty antisocial, and if it stays that way we might never be able to beat the Exams.
>>42637389Mini said they're really expensive.
You decide to head to the special weapon's shop, first of all. After all, it's where you should be able to purchase that elemental paper to discover what affinity you have. Not to mention all the new weapons and supplies you could purchase with your most recent paycheck. You enter the shop, and see Tenten leaning on the counter. She waves and smiles. "Good to see you again, Takeshi. What can I help you with today?" From somewhere back in the store, you hear a female voice yelp, and drop something with a crash. Tenten looks behind her, and calls out. "Mari, are you alright in there?" Mari kicks open the door into the main shop, and points at you. "YOU!" Tenten looks between the two of you with surprise. "Do you two know each other?" Mari runs over and grabs you by the shirt, lifting you up and shaking you as if she was trying to make your lunch money fall out of your pockets. "I oughta take you outside right now and make you eat the dirt!" Tenten slaps her hand on the counter, and yells. "Mari! Let go of him, he's a customer!" Mari turns her head to her mother, and frowns, releasing you. "But Mom, he's the one who forfeited the other day!" Tenten turns, and gives you a blank look. She then puts her hand on her stomach and laughs loudly, seemingly finding this very entertaining. "Oh really?? I had no idea. You should have told me that you knew my daughter, Takeshi." You shrug. "I didn't know that you two were related at the time."Mari grumbles and goes into the back of the shop again. "I've gotta finish up this work, I'll see you at the exams, Takeshi." You chuckle. "See ya." and approach the counter. Tenten smiles. "Now, where were we?" (My prices are going to be out of wack but it's not important)25,000 Ryo>A. Purchase bells. 2,000 >B.

>>42637327>Mari is the Tsundere, not Sarada.No, they're both tsundere, just different styles.Mari is more of an Akane Tendo style tsundere (she's not usually a bitch, we just push her buttons), while Sarada is more of the modern actively bitchy tsundere.

>>42637559>more of the modern actively bitchy tsundere.I rarely like Tsunderes. But modern Tsunderes are the worst. Especially if they're those one that hit the shit out of their love intrest for no good reason.
>>42637649Like Mari was about to do to us?
>>42637756Except she has an excellent reason to do so, namely that we hit her and then forfeited before she could strike back.To be fair, it was a serious dick move.
Too bad we didn't get to interact with Mari. Still nice to see her since our spar.
>>42637756If she actually hit or throw us, she would have been that. She's sitting close to edge though if she would do what she did days after the fact. Yes, we forfeited. It wasn't that big a deal. Get over it.
>>42637537You get a selection of bells, smoke bombs, one of the elemental papers, and a refill on the vial of poison you have. It's a good combination of equipment to have, and in addition with what you already own, you feel it should be plenty to carry you through the Chunin exams. "Heh, your daughter is sort of terrifying, miss Tenten. No offense intended." Tenten smiles warmly. "Well, you did a good job of upsetting her, although it was good for her to have an experience like that. You've really made yourself a target for her, you know." You nod. "I know. I'll face her when the time comes, in the exams." The bell on the door behind you rings, and when you turn, there's a Genin who must be about a year older standing in the frame. He smiles and approaches Tenten. "Hello, Tenten. Is Mari around? I wanted to ask her something." He's wearing a green jacket with a net shirt underneath, and brown pants. His hair is straight black. His Leaf Headband is around his neck, like a collar. He continues. "I was wondering if she was busy or not, I wanted to use her to practice some medical jutsu." Tenten rolls her eyes. "Of course you do, Roku. Mari! Come out here, it's your team mate!" Mari yells back. "I can see him! Coming!" Moments later she arrives once more, a little frazzled. You're guessing that she's stocking boxes of weapons in the back. She approaches the counter and leans forward, looking at Roku with a bored face. "What's up? We already had a training session earlier this morning with the squad." Roku chuckles, and rubs the back of his head. "Yeah, well, I guess I just wanted to spend more time with you, was all." Mari cocks her head to the side, and audibly goes. "Ughh." She shrugs. "I'm working right now.">A. Who are you?>B. Hi, I'm Takeshi.>C. I think you might need the training, Mari.>D. Write-in
>>42637798If we fight her in the chuunin exams, let's do it again!
>>42637898>B. Hi, I'm Takeshi.>A. Who are you?
>>42637898Oh god.Best Girl has an admirer.Fuckfuckfuck.
>>42636404The point of the flora and fauna was that we're about to be sent to a hell hole for the exam and it'd be great to know what is lethal and what isn't in the forest.
>>42637898Fuck damn it, a rival.
>>42637898>B. Hi, I'm Takeshi.
>>42637898>>B. Hi, I'm Takeshi.>A. Who are you?>D. Mari having a quality medic can save your butt, be good to them.Besides>C. I think you might need the training, Mari.then sue our new jutsu to flee
>>42637898>D. Write-inSit back and watch. This should be entertaining.We can bail her out if need be.
>>42637898>C>"I mean, last time we sparred you didn't land a single hit."
>>42637898>B. Hi, I'm Takeshi.>D. Write-in"Guessing I'll be facing you as well in the Chunin Exams if your on Mari's team"
>>42637756There's a difference involved here.We hit her, and then quit the spar like a bitch before she could pay us back in kind.He's talking about the kind that are constantly initiating violence for no good reason against a love interest who isn't even a fighter, for shit that isn't his fault.>>42637898>>B. Hi, I'm Takeshi.>>A. Who are you?>>42637905Let's not. We can tease her about how we're TOTALLY gonna do it before the match starts, but once we're out there we're gonna give her the fight she wants.>>42637944>>42637958Seems like she doesn't really care for him, though. And not in the cute, tsundere way. In the "Oh dear god I will literally chew my own arm off to escape having to be near this guy." way.
>>42637986>Let's not. We can tease her about how we're TOTALLY gonna do it before the match starts, but once we're out there we're gonna give her the fight she wants.I just realized something. If she thinks we're going to forfeit after we get a hit in, her entire strategy in our match will be to get the first hit in before us. We might be able to exploit that.
>>42637898Roku must die
>>42638089Easy there, Voice in Takeshi's Head #7.Let's not get hasty with the murdering.
>>42638089He might exam coming up and all that. But he's their medic apparently and seems to like her. So it may be best if we leave him alive. Wouldn't be any good if she died.Also.. who is her father? I thought Neji died horribly during the final fight.
>>42638182In this timeline, Neji died later.
>>42638226>In this timeline, Neji died later.Or he and Tenten pulled a "night under the Highwind" beforehand.
>>42638248Mari would be older in that case.
>>42637932>>42637964>>42637971>>42637976You decide to help out Mari, and inject yourself into the conversation. "Hi, I'm Takeshi. Who are you, Mari's team mate?" The taller boy looks in your direction, and nods. "That's right. My name is Roku. I'm our teams Medical Ninja. I'm trying to get Mari here to let me practice some of my jutsu on her, but it's not easy to win her over it seems." Mari shrugs. "I work part time here, Roku. I don't know what you don't understand about that. Unless you know a jutsu to make all the things I have left to do vanish." He holds up a mock seal. "Of course I do! Procrastination Jutsu, haha!" She shakes her head, and stands up straight, stretching. "Right. I'll see you tomorrow morning, then. I suppose I'll be seeing you at the exams as well, Takeshi. I look forward to it." You nod. "So do I. Maybe next time, you'll land a hit on me in a fight!" Roku looks at you, stunned. "You were able to beat Mari without a single hit!?" Mari reaches over the counter, and pulls you close. "Don't go around saying things like that, idiot! At least lead with the fact that it's only because you forfeited!" You laugh, and grab her arms, trying to free yourself. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I won't do it again!" She lets you go, and walks into the back of the shop. "Better not.." You wave goodbye to Roku and Tenten, and make your way out. Where do you want to go? This will be your last stop for the day. >A. Go home.>B. Go to the flower shop.>C. Go to Sarada's house.
>>42638248Pretty certain it was said by mini that he died years later this time. Otherwise Mari would even more older than us as she is.
>>42638294>>C. Go to Sarada's house.
>>42638294>C. Go to Sarada's house.
>>42638294>B. Go to the flower shop.Let's grab some poison, head home, and finally use that paper.Preferably with our brother to supervise.
>>42638294>B. Go to the flower shop.
>>42638294What's with the flower shop?I smell an intrigue there
What's at the flower shop? Is it something I've forgotten or is that like a hint that something is happening there?
>>42638294>>B. Go to the flower shop.>>42638353high end poisons.
>>42638336>>42638353It's where we get poisons, Anon.We use poisons frequently.
>C Go to Sarada's house
>>42638294>Mari reaches over the counter, and pulls you close.And I looked, and beheld, as it were, a vision of the future.>C. Go to Sarada's house.
>>42638294>>B. Go to the flower shop.
>>42638294>>C. Go to Sarada's houseBook time
>>42638294>C. Go to Sarada's house.More than likely we are going to end up using some of the plants, since I can see Ai having info on the flora that we might encounter.
>>42638460Ai is basically our portable knowledge repository. If there's information we need to know, we ask her.
>>42638294>C. Go to Sarada's houseArghh I'm late. Missed by chance to get a big ass shuriken too, bummer
>>42638507Kichiro will probably have one. It's not really our thing anyway.
>>42638294>B. Go to the flower shop.Poisons are something that has been very useful for us. We should look to expand our arsenal.
>>42638294>C. Go to Sarada's house
>>42638547You're right that seems like sone thing Kichiro woukd like. I just think they're really cool for some reason.

By now, she must be done with that medical text. You approach and knock on the door, and moments later it's opened. By Sakura. Sarada's mother. She crosses her arms and looks down at you with suspicion, frowning. "Hmm, it's you. What do you want? Have you come here to bother my daughter about that medical book, again? She told me that she would contact you if she wanted to study again, and to turn you away otherwise. I have a pretty good guess that she hasn't contacted you. Tell me something, do you have an interest in my daughter, or are you really just after this book's information? Huh?"Shit. You were not expecting to be put on the spot like this. >A. Your daughter doesn't seem to like me very much. I wouldn't be bothering her if she didn't have this book.>B. I'm actually interested in your daughter, but not in the way you might be thinking. I'd like to fight her sometime, as I know she's one of the best Genin of my class. >C. I don't have any feelings towards her, but I suppose I'd like to be her friend. I'm a friendly person though, heh.>D. Write-in
>>42638774>A. Your daughter doesn't seem to like me very much. I wouldn't be bothering her if she didn't have this book.Oh for fuck's sake Sakura, you and your huge forehead should just stay out of this.
>>42638774>A. Your daughter doesn't seem to like me very much. I wouldn't be bothering her if she didn't have this book.
>>42638774>B. I'm actually interested in your daughter, but not in the way you might be thinking. I'd like to fight her sometime, as I know she's one of the best Genin of my class.God dammit, Sasuke.Get your dimension-hopping ass back here and fuck your wife again, already.
>>42638774>>C. I don't have any feelings towards her, but I suppose I'd like to be her friend. I'm a friendly person though, heh.damn bill bored brow calm down
>>42638774>A. Your daughter doesn't seem to like me very much. I wouldn't be bothering her if she didn't have this book.>C. I don't have any feelings towards her, but I suppose I'd like to be her friend. I'm a friendly person though, heh.I'm gonna go oUT on a limb and assume she doesn't have very many friends.
>>42638844That's the trap option, nitwit.
>>42638774>D. Write-in"Your daughter seems not to like me, and no I don't have any feelings towards her, but I wouldn't mind being friends with her. But I'm here mostly for the book otherwise I wouldn't be bothering your daughter.I really do want to get better at medical ninjitsu, but your daughter is making it a bit of task to do that with her having the only book in the village with that information."
>>42638774You have male friends who didn't want to date you right? We have a shared interest and it happens to put us in an odd friendship.
>>42638774>Your forehead is Huge.
>>42638866This, straight to the point without us being a dick to anyone just cause their one to us.
>>42638774>A. Your daughter doesn't seem to like me very much. I wouldn't be bothering her if she didn't have this book.>C. I don't have any feelings towards her, but I suppose I'd like to be her friend. I'm a friendly person though, heh.
>>42638774>D "Give it a rest, lady! If I wanted to steal your daughter I'd have done it at the academy, away from you." Just a bit of banter of course, but say it like we're 100% serious
>>42638884Anon, do you WANT TO DIE!?>>42638866Here we go, everything we need to say, right here.
>>42638866All while staring straight at her giant forehead.
>>42638774>>A. Your daughter doesn't seem to like me very much. I wouldn't be bothering her if she didn't have this book.>>D. Girls with glasses aren't my type.
Why don't we ask Sakura to train us a little in basic medical jutsu, and that way we can stop bothering her daughter? She's a huge bitch, but she's quite competent at her work.
>>42638884its like you want to die the most painful way possible
>>42638774>>A. Your daughter doesn't seem to like me very much. I wouldn't be bothering her if she didn't have this book.>B. I'm actually interested in your daughter, but not in the way you might be thinking. I'd like to fight her sometime, as I know she's one of the best Genin of my class.
>>42638866This, if all works out we might get sakura to teach us some stuff herself.
>>42638939That could work.
>>42638939What makes you think Sakura is going to teach us medical Jutsu when she isn't even helping Sarada learn it?
>>42638939She won't even Train Sarada, Sh surely won't train us.
>>42638866Shit, changing to this
>>42638866Going with this since it has everything we want to say.
>>42638939That'd be swell. Sakura probably just wants us to herself. We're a real stud
>>42639071Reminder that not a single female character has shown the slightest bit of interest in a relationship with us.
>>42638866I'd be ok with this.
>>42639105It's like being literally anyone who wasn't Naruto, Sasuke, or Rock Lee all over again
>>42639105But compared to everyone else, we ranked up a social link with Sarada, while everyone else is still at zero.
>>42639127Rock Lee? I don't remember him swimming in poon. You mean Shikamaru? Cause that man was a ladykiller.
>>42639127>Rock LeeThere were girls that showed intrest in him? I don't recall this.
>>42639154Oh god Takeshi is ugly isn't he?
>>42639105We are a strong independent shinobi who don't need no kunoichi.
>>42639176More like invisible.
>>42639186Kekthat was good anon i needed that
>>42639192Pretty sure we're not gay. And we're pretty average. It just so happens that the only females we interact with are all highly trained child soldiers.Why can't we waifu some plain village girl?
>>42639193The perfect ninja.
>>42639226>Not wanting a waifu you can spar with
>>42639226Make Shikadai his husbando.
>>42639226Because then we'd have to worry about the milkman ninja.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94Ul87W-zKs
>>42639248Sexual sparring doesn't count?Let's just go find some village semen demon.
>>42639226bloodlines, anon. we need to pass our sneaky shinpo tradition down to a proper ninja baby that can use our skills to the ultimate degree
>>42639226because himawari is best
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGdFPcLx-vsWithout missing a beat, you respond. Really, this is what you've been wanting to say since you've been trying to get this damn text. "Your daughter doesn't seem to like me. I don't have any feelings towards her, but I wouldn't mind being friends with her. I'm mostly here for the book, otherwise I wouldn't be bothering her. I really do want to get better at medical ninjitsu, but your daughter is making it difficult, seeing as she has the only introductory text that the Academy library has. The Chunin exams are coming up. This is what I have to do to get what I need, so I'm doing it." You stare up at the woman with determination. She looks down at you with those same suspicious eyes, arms crossed."Well..in that case. Come inside." You blink. "What?" She walks inside, leaving the door open. "Get in here! If you want to learn Medical Jutsu, I can give you a basic introduction. Don't expect to master anything by tonight though, but I think I should be able to get you started. Sarada is on a mission right now, so she's not here. How's your chakra control? I can't teach you anything if you don't at least have a grasp on that, you know."You walk in, a little shocked. "It's good, I think. I can do the tree walking jutsu just fine, and I know a couple of Genjutsu."Sakura nods. "Well, based on that, there are two techniques I can teach you. They're both basic foundations of medical Ninjutsu. Would you like to know the Healing Palm, or the Chakra Scalpel?" >A. Healing Palm>B. Chakra Scalpel
>>42639293She is pretty cute
>>42639278>Because then we'd have to worry about the milkninja.ftfyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i61aSmql7a8
>>42639284But that's just it, Anon. There's nothing special about our blood. If we mingled with the actual ninja bloodlines, we'd pollute them.
>>42639307>B. Chakra Scalpel
>>42639307>>A. Healing Palm
>>42639307>A. Healing PalmChakra Scalpel sounds nice, but I'm really afraid of Ai or Kichiro dying in the Exam, and I don't want that to happen.
>>42639307>B. Chakra ScalpelKabuto 2.0
>>42639307>>A. Healing PalmHuh. She's too prideful to ask her own mother.
>>42639307>A. Healing Palm
>>42639307>A. Healing PalmThank you Mrs. Sarada's mom.>>42639348Or we're more annoying about it than Sarada is.
>>42639284not our blood, bruh. our skills + a babby with actual ninja talent is the goal
>>42639348Too busy. Sakura and Sarada are both very active women>>42639367This is also very true
>>42639307>A. Healing PalmOh wow.Being direct and honest with Sakura actually WORKED.Sasuke must have visited while we were gone, so her Vitamin D deficiency isn't at full force right now.
>>42639319Our Kekkai Genkai is a bunch of voices telling you to do a bunch of different things all at once.
>>42639307>B. Chakra Scalpelwe have almost no offensive jutsu we need this.
>>42639388I dunno, we'd have to explain it reasonably, but that'd be pretty cool.Most quest MCs aren't aware of the directing anons.
>>42639382We remind her of a Naruto at that age with how persistent we are don't we mini?>>42639402We're the utility Nin sadly. I do agree we need to badger Sakura more once we get out of the exams.
>>42639402We're a support character, Anon. Kichiro is our main offense, while Ai is intel with good chakra reserves.
Chakra Scalpel would go wonderful with a Hyuuga...So would healing palm. We should teach a Hyuuga this move. For...favors.
>>42639429>We're the utility Nin sadlyYaaaaay.....
>>42639429bullshit, stop forcing us into the utility corner. noone said we dont have the capacity to become a powerhouse. its just that we dont have any natural genius or bullshit bloodline helping us to our goals
>>42639487We decided to be Utility, Genjutsu and Healing, Anon.But we're also an effective ninja when it comes to actual ninja stuff, like basic stealth.
>>42639467Oh come on, don't be like that. It's early days yet, we'll be a powerhouse when we make people near catatonic through genjutsu, than we can casually walk up and do whatever we want to them.
everyone here does realize we will have to work our body and taijutsu at some point
>>42639441then we better get into Fūinjutsu as well and cover all support bases, also we are going to have hellish difficulty fighting direct fighters in the tournament stage of the exams.
>>42639508Chakara scalpel is actually a legitimate choice to ensure we're not a dead weight in melee.That being said I did select healing palm because I'd rather keep our bullshit teammates healthy.
>>42639307>B. Chakra ScalpelPlease, why are we going for sit in the back and be a useless bitch skills, when we're about to go into a 1v1 tournament setting (if we even make it that far).
>>42639467Well, Naruto was the skill monkey, Sausuke was DPS, and Sakura, was well Sakura. We're still far more useful since we can think and plan and not muh sausuke.>>42639487We're the teams utility nin right now. Once the first phase is over we are going to cram for the second.>>42639538Depending on how much time we have after stage one we might bop back over to sakura to learn scalpel.
>>42639538Yeah I feel were gonna get trounced in the prelims.
>>42639538But where would we learn Fuinjutsu? We don't know anyone with sealing techniques.>>42639539We can pull our weight in melee, though. Remember when we fought Hanto in hand-to-hand with Ai and Kichiro? We combined Genjutsu with our Taijutsu and it was quite effective.>>42639578Because the stage before that is a survival based free-for all bloodbath where we'll be working with our team.
>>42639317I want to protect that smile
>>42639578Stage 1 Smarts test(aced)Stage 2 Team test(healing is fuckawfully useful here)Stage 3 Tourney(hopefully if we finish fast we can train with our teammates to not suck so hard)
>>42639613hit the books, also Tenten.
>>42639597We've had good luck with one on one battles so far, like with Mari and Shikadai. We'll think of something. We always do.
>>42639339>>42639341>>42639348>>42639351>>42639355>>42639357>>42639367>>42639443You decide to learn the Healing Palm Jutsu. Sakura prepares a training regimen for you, focused on healing the wounds of a couple of fish in water. She tells you that it's very easy to damage the cells if you don't know what you're doing, and you somewhat regret letting Sarada test her jutsu on you. It's grueling work, and you're dripping with sweat by the end of it. She's rigorously instructing you, and you're positive that Sakura has completely memorized the text that you've been seeking for so long. Your hands dimly glow with green light as you attempt to work, and it's hardly effective. The fish are dead by the end of the night. It's hours later, nearing midnight. You stand and walk out of Sarada's home, panting heavily from exhaustion. You've never had to focus for so long on such a difficult project, and you're amazed that Sarada learned it straight from the book in a single day. Your mastery of the jutsu is very low, if you can even preform it successfully at all. But it's a start, and you get the feeling that your chakra control has improved greatly.Sakura smiles as you exit. "Takeshi, I have to say...you have no talent whatsoever, haha!"You frown, and slump. After all that, that's what she has to say to you?Sakura places a hand on your shoulder. "But you still managed to learn it, through pure effort. Go home and get some rest." You bow, your body shaking, and thank her. You make it home, struggling to stand during the walk. When you enter the house, your brother stands from the kitchen table and approaches you. "Takeshi, are you alright!? You look like Hell. What happened? Don't you know you have the Chunin exams tomorrow, it's late!" You frown. "Sorry, bro. I was training with Sakura Uchiha, she taught me the Healing Palm Jutsu." Cont.
>>42639626Good thinking.>>42639620We bought bells, and smokebombs, we might be able to make something work during the Prelims.
>>42639597Please. I think your seriously underestimating Takeshi's skills. Yeah, he ain't a straight up fighter. Big whoop. Strength isn't everything. Fighting smart is more important anyway. And with us observing the fights for Takeshi, he has his own huge advantage over the others.
>>42639634>Like with MariShe would've killed us if we didn't forfeit. It was a lose lose really (except we learned that genjutsu)>And ShikadaiThe end of that fight was questionable. If Shikadai is anything like his Dad he wasnt taking it that seriously probably. That said I won't disallow that one entirely, we did flex our strategic skills there.
>>42639613We have no offensive capabilities right now, if anything we're a complete liability for our team mates the way we are right now when you consider the comparative strengths of our squad to all the others we know of. We can't back anyone up in a worthwhile function.
>>42639699We're the kind of ninja who wins via sheer effort.>>42639733We have a taijutsu fighting style built around basic transformation and clone jutsus. No one will see it coming.At a range, we have our senbons. Not to mention our poison and other gear.Plus we have the advantage of being able to come up with plans for our team ridiculously fast, and we can use this to great effect.
>>42639733What is GenjutsuAccurate Poisoned weaponsTactical expertiseTaijutsu
>>42639733Are you trying to sound stupid? Without us our team would never function correctly
>>42639733>no offensive capabilities right nowNigga we got fists.In the Naruto universe, defensive and utility techniques are easy to turn into an offense/trap
>>42639779This guy gets it. Our team is made of misfits. They're effective, but they need guidance and strategy, which is our job.
Guys, we're about to find out our Elemental Nature.Who's excited?
>>42639826I hope it's water
>>42639826It's shit. Because that's all we'll ever be.
>>42639826Personally hoping for lightning.
>>42639826every ones all like its waterthen bam its actually wind
>>42639847im hoping for lightning.
>>42639852I'll bet it turns out to be fire, just for the lulz.
>>42639826You know mini is going to cliff hang it right?
>>42639826Is Mini just gonna pick one? Do we roll for it?
>>42639826Probably water. Earth would also be fine with me though.
>>42639826Hope it's lightning or we get to roll for it.
>>42639878It's literally just us holding a piece of paper, he'd never be able to cliffhang it.>>42639891It's based on all our past decisions.
>>42639906>It's literally just us holding a piece of paper, he'd never be able to cliffhang it.Yes he will.
>>42639878that would be mean. i mean, why even.its a good thread end and gives us something to think about till the next time we run
>>42639906>not knowing how much I love cliffhanging things
>>42639906>You hold the paper and....That's it for tonight guys.
Your brother raises an eyebrow, stunned. "Well, you certainly look like you've had a time. I suppose it's of no consequence..there's just something that I've been waiting to give you, today."He takes a wooden box that is set on the kitchen table. You've never seen your brother so serious. He steps in front of you, holding the small box. He opens it up, and inside of it, is a picture of your parents. Your mother, on the left, and your father, on the right. Engraved on the front of the box, are three Kanji in a row, with a strange, swirly marking all around it. You look up at him. "What is this?" He smiles. "Takeshi, you know that our family was never very prominent in the village. We're immigrants from generations ago who've become Shinobi to protect the village. In this world, there are people capable of...incredible things. You weren't born yet, but, during the last war, things changed. Your average shinobi couldn't cut it.." Your head hangs low. "What are you saying, bro..?" He smiles, reaching out and ruffling your hair. "Hey, stand straight. This is an important day. Do you know what this Kanji reads?"You nod. "It says Underdog."
>>42639922Because Mini cares not for the desires of mortal men. He cares only for his own divine amusement.
Okay, so to recap...If the Paper Crinkles, we're Lightning. If it ignites and crumbles to ash, we're Fire. If it becomes soggy, we're Water. If it splits in two, we're Wind. If it turns to dirt and crumbles away, we're Earth.
>>42639949Your brother nods. He sets the box down, and takes off his shirt. Directly over his heart, is the same three kanji, with the same swirly seal. He pounds a fist against his chest. "This is our family's secret. I'm passing this onto you, tonight, so that you may use it in the Chunin exams. It is the heart of the underdog. This special seal draws chakra from my heart, passively, and stores it in this kanji. Only a small amount. About five percent of my total."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi__pFWfiAYYou blink. "What for?"Your brother smiles. "It's a last resort, an ace in the hole. It's nothing big and flashy, but it's something that will separate you from everyone else. It will let you go one step further, even at the very end. The purpose of this seal is to wait until both you and your opponent have exhausted all chakra, all strategies, and all options. When you're both incapable of moving, or when you're on the ropes. If you ever find yourself boxed into a corner, activate this Seal. The heart of the underdog. It will give you 5% of your chakra back, which might be just enough to pull out a last resort finisher." You nod. "I see. How do I use this seal?" He smiles. "I'm going to tattoo it on your chest, of course. Just release the chakra that's stored in the Ink when you want to use it. It takes about a full day for it to refill, though, so be careful." Your brother takes the photo of your parents out, and retrieves a small tattoo kit. You lay on the couch as he does his work, and soon, the Heart of the Underdog is boldly stated on your chest.---That's all for tonight folks. Next thread, discover your elemental nature, and begin the Chunin Exams!
>Her name means Sunflower
>>42639970Next thread when?
>>42639970Holy shit, we can get back up after we're beaten and broken.This is perfect.And you were right Anons, he did cliffhanger it.
>>42639995Soon. Maybe tomorrow, not sure. I have the next couple of days off. Also I'll be around for questions naturally
>>42639970What happened to the goddamn paper?!
>>42640003>Holy shit, we can get back up after we're beaten and broken.Just like one of my shounen animes.>And you were right Anons, he did cliffhanger it.Kinda sorta.He ended on a heartwarmin and kinda awesome note, not a cliffhanger.>>42640033We haven't used it yet.
>>42639970Perfect. Now I'm hyped as fuck
>>42639970it is now officially time for us to start studying fuinjutsu like a madman. we have to expand upon this technique. its time to go full BFQ, guys
>>42640033It's still in your pocket!
>>42639970Thanks for running Mini. Thought the Heart of the Underdog was a nice way to add an interesting trait to Takeshi without it being some sort if overpowered Kekkai Genkai or whatever.
>>42640057You son of a bitch.
>>42639970This is pretty great. Though the paper still not being used is pretty tragic, dying of curiosity!
>>42640057Will the exams be the same as what we saw in the show/manga, or will there be changes?
>>42640054Chuunin Exams are tomorrow. No time to study.>>42640014What does Sakura and TenTen think of us now?
>>42639970dear lord were actually this song well at lest the starthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYGLrJhhbqM
>>42640088>Sakura: Well at least he tries.>Ten-ten: Buy more shit.
>>42640054BFQ? Also I Agree, we need to Flying Thunder god.>>42640057Mari's, SAkura's, Tenten's, Roku's Naruto's and Sarada's(once she hears) opinions on s.
Archived http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Boruto Also I knew mini was going to end without our nature being revealed
>>42640094He only gets back up once anon, and most likely the one time he does it'll be to die.
>>42640054Are we gonna go all Far cry 3 and slowly expand and improve our seal with Fuinjutsu, because if so thats gonna be great.
>>42640014What do Ai and Kichiro think about the Chuunin Exams tomorrow? How are they reacting, seeing as we're entering so soon?
>>42640116Blatant fetish quest, a quest where the high lethality setting and unique magic system resulted in a hyper paranoid playerbase covering their MCs entire body in magical power foci tattoos
>>42640179Wait, so we'd end up like Sasuke's cursed seal, marks all over our body?
>>42640179I thought that quest only had like.. two threads? That's all the archive had anyway.
>>42640086It will be essentially the same.Better start planning on how you're going to cheat, because you won't be able to just not answer anything like Naruto did. That's the one change I can think of, really.Oh, also, there will be WAY more participating Genin.>>42640088Sakura appreciates a young, motivated, hard working, no nonsense shinobi. She thinks you're alright.Tenten thinks that the rivalry between you and her daughter is funny. She doesn't think too much of you yet, except that you're a decent shinobi all around. A good kid.Roku doesn't really have an opinion on you, although he thinks it's funny you forfeited against Mari.Naruto likes you, he's Naruto. You'd have to be a major dick for him to not like youMari feels the same.>>42640157Ai and Kichiro have both been training hard. They're looking forward too it, for different reasons.
>>42640225Wait, so the written exam is happening?Fuck. Anyone got any ideas on how to gather the correct information?
>>42640201Except you know not creepy or involving copious pain or lipstick use. I could see us covered in seals that'd act as limiters and/or defenses.>>42640225>although he thinks it's funny you forfeited against Mari.Dare I ask why?>>426402503.5 int anon Smart as Sakura.
>>42640250What are all out techniques again?
>>42640250Either he puts no answers down or he is smart enough to get most of them correct.
>>42640272Mini said we can't use No answers. There's gotta be something we can do using our existing techniques.
>>42640213BFQ has over 100 threads. you're thinking of a different fetish quest, as depressing as that is
>>42640250Stab our dicks with senbon and while we're getting rushed to the medical facility hope to catch some smart kids answers.
>>42640272Actually, Mini just said not answering is not an option this go round
>>42640286We're pretty loaded right now. Maybe we can bribe our way in
>>42640266That applies to our tactical intelligence, Anon. Not our accumulated mathematic knowledge
>>42640286Genjutsu ourselves to see the information written on everything around us.>>42640288Could you link it?I'm almost finished reading Shadow quest.
>>42640266You're more about common sense and planning than booksmarts.
Do we have any mirror type devices or jitsus?
>>42640250put most everyone under genjutsu then walk over and copy the answers
>>42640311>>42640286>Mini said we can't use No answers.I can't remember him saying that, but I'll take your word for it.Maybe he plants a smokebomb on someone, timing it so that it goes off a few minutes into the test?Giving him enough time to Body Flicker around and copy answers.
>>42640312Our salary is measly compared to that of Chuunin and Jounin.>>42640317We can't Genjutsu information that we don't know, Anon.
>>42640340So we couldn't look at a book then Genjutsu the shit all over the place from each page? Then do the same for math formulas? I mean people Genjutsu shit that doesn't exist all the time.>>42640351Thanks.
>>42640337Literally >>42640225 and body flicker is too noticeable.>>42640336Chuunins will be immune, they'll notice us cheating and that means we autofail.
>>42640337See >>42640225>Better start planning on how you're going to cheat, because you won't be able to just not answer anything like Naruto did. That's the one change I can think of, really.
>>42640317>Genjutsu ourselves to see the information written on everything around us.We'd just hypnotize ourselves into thinking we see the answers on other people's papers. We wouldn't gain any new information.>>42640336>put most everyone under genjutsu then walk over and copy the answersThe room is covered with observers and super special ninja kids. No way we could pull that off.
>>42640363Because they're imagining it or copying it, Anon.We can't just produce the necessary information out of thin air. It's an illusion.
>>42640367Don't they allow you to get caught cheating a few times? Like, the whole point is just to be able to cheat well enough, not perfectly?
Could we genjutsu someone into writing our name on their answer sheet? Of course, then we have to pick the right person to screw over/a plant with the right answers.
>>42640394They mark you down and you lose points. If we wandered around, they'd give us multiple deductions.The entire point of this is covert espionage.
>>42640383He beat me by 10 secs anon. Not like I saw his post before I posted mine.
>>42640418So far this is the only plan that can work
>>42640418You don't have any Genjutsu to do that. You only know two Genjutsu. Affecting someone's sight, and affecting someone's hearing.
>>42640418That's more of a direct control method, something Ino would use. We have nothing like that. We can only alter someone's perceptions of the world. We can't make them do a specific thing, or think that they're us.
we could genjutsu the chuunin watching us specifically, if we can figure out whos keeping track of our area, and make it appear as though we're staring at our paper while we actually copy from elsewhere. maybe? i was also thinking we could make illusions of other more obvious cheaters as a distraction, but that'd be cruel
>>42640418The only Genjutsu we know are False Place and False Sound. We don't have mind control.
we bought the bells right then we could use them to distract the observers into looking another way making them think some one is moving around then we steal the awansers
>>42640433Could we theoretically swap sheets with someone right before the end of the test, and Genjutsu them into seeing their own sheet instead of our crappy retard answer sheet when they hand it it?
>>42640455Clever, but we won't have a specific observer.What we need is one of our brother's sensory Jutsu.
>>42640495>What we need is one of our brother's sensory Jutsu.Which doesn't help because the exam is tomorrow.
>>42640495naruto seemed to have a specific chuunin assigned to his area. having multiple chuunin watch the same students would result in them getting deductions multiple times for the same infractions.
So we have no way of getting the answers and it's doubtful he'd know the right ones anyway.This is "fun".
>>42640528The Chuunin line up at the side of the room, with the way the desks are arranged, it's impossible to be that specific. I think it's more likely that they just communicate silently somehow.
>>42640546SHOULDA STUDIED, LOSER
If worst comes to worst we could go all out. Maybe genjutsu false sound as many students as possible to hear an explosion sound from behind them? Make a bit of chaos as they all jump around panicked, let us steal the answers from someone?
>>42640546It's a puzzle, we have to solve it. That's the point of puzzles.If we can figure out a way to communicate with Ai, she'll know the answers....Oh shit, we need to help Kichiro through this test too, if one member of the team fails, we all do.
man i wish we had shadow clones we could have had the one we would be able to make transform it into a small animal or something gather the answers then dismiss it and learn the answers
>>42640585The questions are designed to be impossible to answer anyway, you're supposed to cheat off of the two Chuunins they snuck in.>>42640586As a last resort, maybe.
>>42640588Actually, out of the three of you, Kichiro has the greatest aptitude for math and schoolwork and stuff.Do you know how much time he spent in detention?
he has an awakened sharingan, hes fucking set. we need to communicate with ai somehow. do we know about the test before hand? or is takeshi ignorant of his future troubles.
Think the only play we can make is wait until he gives us the option of leaving or hearing the tenth question and taking the option to leave. We can try again next year.
>>42640588Well, if we get some answers, we could False place the answers we have to him for only him to see.
>>42640615I kind of assumed he'd be terrible at it due to his delinquency.Looks like we're the only one in trouble then.
>>42640621Kichiro is not an Uchiha, not sure where you got that ideaTakeshi has no idea the test is coming. No one does.
>>42640621>he has an awakened sharinganWut
>>42640650oh wow, why did i think that?
>>42640650The voices do.And the voices live to assist Takeshi.
>>42640650does ai now False Place? if only we had taught it to her
He said we couldn't 'No answers' the test. Assuming the test works like how we all think it does, than there's nothing stopping us from just putting down wrong answers and waiting for the tenth question.
>>42640707I think what Mini meant was that there is no tenth question.That was probably specific to that torture specialist jounin examiner.
>>42640723well darn. worth a shot
>>42640723say we dont write answers for all the questions do we still fail
>>42640760nah you just gotta get ONE point successfully to pass
>>42640777But if we're deducted for cheating, we'll need to answer more questions.
>>42640791You don't get points deducted, if you get caught cheating X number of times then you get booted.
>>42640777Alright I've got a plan.We'll answer one question correctly.
>>42640803So it's not using the point deduction system form the anime and manga?Because that was how it worked.
i say lets false sound some random guy some distance away from us that keeps hearing "psst. Hey. Psst. Hey." Or just annoying mouth piping noises In their ear like someone beside them is trying to get him to allow them to cheat off him/being obnoxious. Try and make them snap and start a scene to distract
>>42640837nope, that system sort of gets ruined without the tenth questionreally the original test was retarded, because you could actually just Naruto your way through it
>>42640857we did buy the bells so we could use that to distract
>>42640864Okay then, we need exactly one question.We need to find a way for Ai or Kichiro to transmit an answer to us.
If one of our teammates know the answers, we could use False Sound in order to set up a system to silently communicate with each other like tapping or some shit
>>42640857or mabe we could just false sound back and fourth with ai? assuming she knows basic genjutsu. and i have a feeling shes mastered the basics of pretty much everything
>>42640898Ok, we just need to put our new jutsu to use. Lets see healing palm... Alright we nearly kill everyone in the room, cheat, and then bring them back with healing palm so they don't suspect a thing.
>>42640891The bells are for a technique that uses Senbons. Basically it's a kind of genjutsu free illusion. We throw senbons with bells, and our opponents get used to dodging the bell sound, then we also throw a regular senbon at the same time, and it hits them.There's a jutsu that causes the bell's ringing to make the opponent dizzy and start seeing quadruple, but we don't know it.
>>42640945the perfect plan
One thing I noticed about the cheating thing is that you got a limited amount of times to be caught before you are thrown out. So it we just do 1 big balant cheat we are good.
>>42640936That hinges on her or Kichiro knowing the technique.But do they?OY MINI, DO THEY KNOW FALSE SOUND?
>>42640966We might get multiple deductions for that. It's just not our style to go big and blatant.
>>42640974we'll test it when we get into the test, send them a message and see if they can reply. until then, i guess we should start looking into other ideas
>>42640996Well son of a bitch.Does Ai even know anything beyond academy jutsu?
>>42640996Would it be possible to cast a genjutsu on everyone one of the Chunnin watching?
Thinking is hard. What about... can we maintain a false sight and a transformation? We make it look like we never left out seat, but transform into a bug or something to go spy one someones answer?
>>42640914Honestly, we could probably use false place to make a paper indicating its us appear in front of them with instructions like "Do you have any answers? Scratch left cheek for yes or right cheek for no." If the have answered any, we then have it say "tap pencil X many times for which question".We can also give answers the same way if need be.
Here is what I am thinking, we false place the chunnin watching to make it look like our head is facing straight while we look to side at someone else's paper.
>>42641013Yes>>42641014Depends on what you want to do>>42641029No>>42641030Can't use two jutsu at once
>>42641030We might be able to do it with a clone.I think this might be a good shot.>>42641033Using False Sound or False Place to instruct them on what signals to give is also a workable idea.
>>42641033ah yeah, simple code. good idea
>>42641061So what does she know?>>42641033This is our best bet.
>>42641079>So what does she knowYou'll see.
>>42641092Honestly we have no idea of Ai's capabilities, and that's going to obstruct team planning.We should ask what she can do sometime.
How about this. We smoke bomb the entire room and steal someone else's paper. We have smoke bombs right?
>>42641125How would we see through the smoke?
>>42641162We false place ourselves a head of time with an image of what the room looks like or atleast where our neighbor's paper is.
>>42641125They're all ninjas as well. They'd know if we took theirs and they'd fight back.
>>42641205We wouldn't get the details of the paper in our genjutsu though.
>>42641205Do you want us to be able to see... By placing us into an illusion. Sounds really counter intuitive.
>>42641235We only need to know where the paper is so we can steal it through the smoke and that is what the genjutsu is for.
>>42641240An illusion that can overwrite the smoke.
>>42641297If we took someone's paper and didn't put it back at the end of the smokebomb, they'll mention it, and we'll be caught.
>>42641319We swap the two tests and false place it to look like their test while it is actually our blank one.
>>42641358Too many moving parts, too many places at which the plan can fail.We shall communicate with Ai and Kichiro to beat this test.
>>42641384I still think my idea of false placing the chunin so our head is looking straight (a minor change so it should be easier to hit everyone) while we just look to the side and see how our neighbors are answering would be better. Then after we got the answer we could false place the answer directly on Ai's and Kichiro's sheets.
>>42641313That's ridiculous. 1. You have to find out first if that Genin even has awnser a to steal.2. If we do that, how will we tell when a student or observer moves in to check what happened.3. Adding on to 2, if the smoke is cleared out rapidly, we could be caught in the act and be unaware cause of our own illusion.4. Even if this somehow works, you then have to waste energy the rest of the test Genjutsuing the guy you stole from so he doesn't call it out.
>>42641400We'd have to hit multiple Chuunin.And it assumes our neighbors know the answers or have cheated them. Some of these guys are gonna fail, and we might be sitting next to them.
>>42641431Miniseries comfirmed that it is possible to hit all the chunnin with a genjutsu depending on what it is.
>>42641482You're gonna have to refute my second point.What if our neighbours are wrong?
>>42641526>What if our neighbours are wrong?We can still stick with the plan of communicating with Ai and Kichiro using genjutsu to sort through the answers we got. At least we will have least tried something rather then hoping they have better ways of spying.
>>42641562We're not hoping for anything. The two of them know the answers. Ai probably has the information memorized, and Mini has confirmed that Kichiro actually knows a fuckton of booksmart stuff from his time in detention.
>>42641602Yes, and it is easier for them to confirm an answer is right because we can false place it on their test and asked the to give a signal if it is right or wrong. The hard way is getting them to try to communicate the answer to a question in a way that doesn't get caught.
False sound someone that we think copied answers successfully from someone "hey bro tap your pencil a certain way for A, B, C, or DThen give the answers to Kiricho and Ai with false sound "yo, got the answer, it's ___"
>>42641715Even better if it's Shikadai"Hey man, help me out here. Use your shadow possession and write me the correct answer"Then we pass it along
