>>42669851Alright guys, time to train to the point that Tenten needs to nurse us back to health! Hypertension a go!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tI55p41FYik&index=3&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85It's the day after the Third Hokage's funeral, but you don't start missions again until tomorrow. You lumber your way downstairs and eat some breakfast that your uncle has prepared."You should go catch up with your friends today, Kon." your uncle insists. "Many of them haven't seen you since before the village was attacked. I'm sure they're worried."The two of you finish eating, and your uncle gets ready to open his restaurant for the day. You think on what you want to do with your time.>A.Seek out a specific person (who?)>B.Go to a specific place (where?)>C.Just wander>D.Stay home
>>42669935>A.Seek out a specific person (who?)Tsunade. Things were said and done that are best put in the past sooner rather than later.
>>42669935>C.Just wanderAnything I can think to say to anyone we know would just sound trite.
>>42669935>>C.Just wanderSup Laze
>>42669935>A.Like one anon said, we might want to talk to Tsunade about what we've said.
>>42669935>E. Go to the training grounds. Spend the whole day doing extremely high-intensity training until someone inevitably comes and bothers you.
>>42669935>C.Just wanderAnd bump into Tenten
>>42669935>>42669986Second. Might even meet someone there.
>>42669935>>C.Just wanderTime to meander around in a vague daze.Also, Konohamaru has as much stamina as Kon and Kakashi. Kid done gud.
>>42669935>A. Seek out Sasuke, is his brother alright?
>>42670132I wonder if Sasuke even knew his brother was sick? We probably found out before he did.
>train under Tsunade for a while>get swole>use Zabuza's sword>use its wide blade like a shield, channeling Feedback through its surfaceThoughts? It's supposed to be immensely resilient, which means it could take the blow for us. It'd be a good way to "complete" Feedback.
>>42670143We've been gone almost a week, I assume he's found out by now. Unless he was still unconscious from fighting Gaara all that time.
>>42670176That's a good idea actuallyLet's do that
>>42670176I don't think Tsunade's going to be training us. Tenten has said (maybe not to us) it's her dream to become a great kunoichi like her.
>>42670206When did she ever say that?
>>42669952>>42669957>>42669962>>42669963>>42669993>>42670009>>42670030You decide to just wander around the village, maybe it'll clear your mind.As you walk around, you notice that all the damage from the attack has long since been fixed. The police go about their patrols, politely greeting people they pass by. Children run back and forth, laughing. You feel like you really get a sense of what it is that your teacher wanted to protect.As your head starts to clear, you also notice that it's about lunchtime, and people are heading into various stalls to grab a bite to eat. Nearby, you see a ramen stand, "Ichiraku". You think you've head the name before.As you approach, you see the stall totally packed. In one of the seats, you see a familiar face. It's Sai, from your class. He's talking to one of the employees while holding what seems to be a joke book."You don't have to worry about me, Ayame." Sai says before looking down at his book. "Making all these noodles for the lunch rush, you're stretched thin as it is."The woman chuckles and goes to serve someone else, while Sai jots something down in his notebook, same emotionless face as ever. Once he's done writing, he turns and sees you."Ah, it's you." he says with his monotone voice. "It's been quite a while, Kon.">A.Greet Sai>B.Ask how he's been doing>C.Invite him to hang out>D.Other
>>42670206In canon she gave up on that because she's shit at medical ninjutsu, and not especially great at chakra control.Who knows how things will work out this time. All we can really do is arrange things as best as we can.
>>42670224It's brought up when Guy's having a flashback montage during the part where he asks his new team what their dreams are.
>>42670180No, I mean that I doubt if Itachi ever actually told Sasuke. Sasuke seems to think of Itachi as this invulnerable obstacle he needs to overcome, so I can't see him perceiving any weakness in him. And Itachi's kind of a private person, he wouldn't give out details like that unless it could impact Sasuke directly. So maybe the first Sasuke heard of it was when Tsunade showed up and started treating his brother.
>>42670225>>A.Greet Sai>B.Ask how he's been doing
>>42670225>A.Greet SaiSup>D.OtherGet something to eat
>>42670225>A.Greet Sai>B.Ask how he's been doing
>>42670176Still not digging the oversized sword, lad. Doesn't Naruto have regular, not gigantic swords?
>>42670235But in this universe she can reverse summon so i guess here her chakra control must be pretty fucking good
>>42670225>A.Greet SaiWe've literally not interacted with Sai at all. Which is a shame, because with him not being in Root, he might be a fun person .
>>42670225>A. Greet SaiBut be kinda...out there about it. We've got things on the mind, after all.
>>42670225>B.Ask how he's been doing"It's been a long few days. Tell me something good."
>>42670270It has a LOT of oversized and ridiculous weapons. The upside to Zabuza's is that it's really quite a good sword, and Haku would probably like to see it put to proper use again.Also, I'm not your lad mate.
>>42670270personally im going with it for two reasonsClosure for Haku and a really good crutch to make feedback into a really good tech with almost no drawbacks
>>42670270I'd prefer a sword with rings on it like the one Sun Jian now uses in Dynasty Warriors.
>>42670225>>A.Greet Sai>>B.Ask how he's been doingSai's a good sort. He seems sociable, these days.>>42670270Yes.Shounen logic means they're usually about as effective as a chocolate teapot.
>>42670303>>42670305Also not gonna lie, I like the idea of using it as a shield, defending Kon's friends and village. It's got some really fucking nice symbolism.
>>42670335Now that is some really fucking good closure for Haku and a symbolic metaphor for that big ass sword being used as a shield and also serving a our family weapon.
>>42670270Yes.Actually, we have one.But whenever someone suggests using it, they get kicked in the balls and everyone jumps up and down on their opinion until people are afraid to even be associated with it.
>>42670225>>A.Greet Sai>>B.Ask how he's been doing
>>42670176I like that idea. Maybe if Tsunade doesn't train us we could ask Lee it he can get us up to his level of strength once his cast comes off
>>42670358Because they suggest is when in the most stupid occasions>Lets sword Bruce Lee!>Lets sword this giant motherfucking sand racoon demon thing!>Lets sword motherfucking sasori!
>>42670398>Let's sword Kabuto!Honestly, I just want to see what happens when we sword something with our release.
I'm not overly fond of upping our bad stats just to be symbolic. I mean the time we spend upping our strength to actually use the sword decently, could be spent getting speed 5, or upping our Ninjutsu and Hand Seals.
>>42670225>>B.Ask how he's been doing
>>42670356The fact that it's literally designed around being readied and stored on your back so quickly even means it won't get in the way of ninjutsu or regular taijutsu. It could come out when we use traps or ninjutsu to create a clean opening.
>>42670429Dude we'll have the timeskip to shippuden to do thatWe can do some pretty cool things with that swordMaking feedback amazing and using it with our release are a few examples
>>42670429We could try infusing our release into our grapple-hook-dagger when it's wrapped around an enemy's limb
We can actually use our sword, right? We're not just incompetent with it or anything, I hope.
>>42670247>>42670251>>42670260>>42670272>>42670280>>42670281>>42670285>>42670318>>42670332>>42670362https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZeyNVms7jw&index=4&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85"Hello, Sai." you greet him. "It has been a while. How have you been doing?"You take a seat that's opened up next to Sai and order yourself a bowl of ramen."Mostly the same as ever." Sai responds. "Besides the fact that Guy Sensei has been training us constantly with all his might. He's sore about being the only Jonin with no rookies that got promoted."Your ramen arrives and you try it out. It's really good ramen. Not as good as anything your uncle makes, though."Lee recovered recently, as well." Sai goes on. "He certainly rocked the doctor's expectations. They expected him to be in that cast for another two weeks. I'm sure he'd like it if you visited him. He's already excited about the prospect of a rematch."You finish your ramen and pay.>A.Go see Lee>B.Invite Sai>C.Go see someone else>D.Go somewhere else>E.Other
>>42670478We don't have a sword, we're just holding onto the one we have for Sasuke and have forgotten to give it back to him.
>>42670429Training in the way Tsunade can train us can probably be transferred to other skills, because it relies so heavily on chakra control. And that IS something Kon is already excellent at.Part of the reason the Third was such a beast was he had excellent chakra control, and that let him use powerful ninjutsu very effectively even into old age.
>>42670494>D.Go somewhere elseTraining grounds!
>>42670494>A.Go see Lee>B.Invite Sai
>>42670494>C.Go see someone elseI guess we could get caught up with Tenten. It's not like her teammates are much fun to be around, so she could probably use the company.
>>42670494>A.Go see Leehell yeah
Got some more errands, guysMight be a while
>>42670495WE GOT TWO2TWO SWORDSON THE MISSION TO THE LAND OF WAVESSASUKE GOT HIS SWORD, WE HAVE OUR OWNFUCKING READING COMPREHENSION, I AM SICK OF REPEATING THIS>>42670494>A. Go see Lee>B.

>>42670494>>A.Go see Lee

>>42670494>E. later: "Oh, now I get it... hey, he even did it twice!"
>>42670494>C.Go see someone elseLet's go see Kiba. Because I miss Akamaru.
>>42670548He's learning subtlety in his puns, good for him. I'm proud of you, Sai.
>>42670548>>42670577It was pretty good. Flew over my head.
Okay, so I went to sleep in the middle of the weapon discussion last night, after pointing out that just about any weapon we find, no matter how cool, will be inferior to having Enma go all power pole.The reason that's relevant is that if we master the use of the staff, those skills will carry over and we'll be better when using him in that capacity. Whereas if we were to train with a sword, then the skills wouldn't carry over as much.
>>42670478>Kon>competentYeah, until after where the timeskip was in canon you can assume he's not.
>>42670685He is competent.Laze said that he has a pretty good chance of beating most anyone under Jounin level.
>>42670668Tsunade had Enma AND Katsuyo, and drew against Orochimaru.Just because the Third was once amazing with Enma doesn't mean that we should expect it to work that well for us. Instead we should be looking at what could work specifically for Kon.Example: "Hiding with Camouflage". Turn invisible to set traps and position ourselves to finish an opponent with a more powerful technique with the least risk. It's perfect for Kon, but it's not even on anyone's radar because it's not Summoning or Impact release.
>>42670685He's quite competent for how long he's been an active ninja. It's just that everyone he's been fighting has been doing this longer. And unlike Naruto, we don't have a huge mass of chakra sitting in our gut to let us power through that disparity. We're as competent as we can be, that's just not enough.
I like how we now have monkeys who use genjutsu.
>>42670668>training with only one weapon>when that one weapon is an S-tier summmon
>>42670731>Tsunade had Enma AND Katsuyo, and drew against Orochimaru.And Zabuza's stupid fucking sword would have done better?There's also the fact that I don't think Tsunade is really much of a staff fighter, so she had unfamiliarity with the weapon working against her.
>>42670685>We can't beat people who have been training for years and years means we're not competentAyyy, try DBZ human quest or something lad
>>42670768I was suggesting that we train with staffs. Period. That way the skills actually fucking carry over to the S-tier summon in question.READING COMPREHENSION YOU STUPID FUCKING SWORDNIGGER!
>We must only use 1 weaponGuys, let's just agree on a FEW weapons to git gud with over the time skip. Then, we can seal them and be highly adaptable with different weapon stylesCorrect me if it seems like bullshit
>>42670770That "stupid fucking sword", as has been pointed out, could be perfect for combining with Impact release techniques. The point is that just because Enma is an excellent summon doesn't mean that's not all there is to the decision.We won't know which is better FOR KON until we at least give it some level of cursory exploration.
>>42670812I want a small hammer ala pic related, Zabuza's Sword, Kyoketsu-Shoge, and bo staff.
a non-artifact weapon seems pretty limiting in late-series Naruto. Can't it just be broken pretty easily, even if we channel chakra through it?
>>42670731I agree with this. Kon is fundamentally a tricky fighter. Our focus should be on manipulating a fight in order to get them into one big hit. Using Zabuza's sword means we're either wasting time buffing strength, or we're wasting our chakra to lug it around, because people are forgetting how Tsunade's shit worked. Summoning Enma is the same shit, wasting our Chakra to have a cool weapon is silly.Kon is explosions and traps. We may have a fun release, but focusing on that entirely devalues the character.
>>42670867>because people are forgetting how Tsunade's shit workedCorrect me if I'm wrong, but can't fucking Sakura of all people do that shit all day long in canon?
>>42670867We HAVE our traps. We HAVE our shit.We can get stronk without becoming utter shit at everything else. We have time.
>>42670840>That "stupid fucking sword", as has been pointed out, could be perfect for combining with Impact release techniques.With the way our release works, just about any weapon that requires hitting things could be perfect.And in fact, a lighter weapon would probably be better with our release, since (at a hypothetical endgame point where we can use our Release freely without wearing ourself out) most of the damage will be done by channeling the release through it, rather than by the weapon itself.A staff, in addition to being a very versatile weapon in the hands >>42670900Sakura "of all people" as you put it, in canon has fucking GOD TIER chakra control, and extremely respectable chakra reserves. She just got fucked over because Kishi always missed his chances to have her actually git gud.>>42670901And then the power curve leaves us behind.
>>42670858The Seven Swords are pretty fucking special. Zabuza's can repair itself using its victim's blood if it's damaged, and is durable to begin with. And channeling chakra into the blade turns it into a question of whose element trumps whose, and the component natures of our kekkei genkai are the two best for the purpose.
>>42670900You're not realizing how their strength works.They use the Chakra at the moment of impact. They aren't using the super strength all the time. But when you're wielding a heavy sword, you need that strength all the time to control the weight of the blade.Stealing from the wiki "Tsunade's signature ability is building up and releasing her chakra with precise timing upon impact, greatly amplifying her already legendary strength enough to launch her targets several meters or create ground fissures using a single finger"That doesn't work when you constantly need that strength.
>>42670926>A staff, in addition to being a very versatile weapon in the hands4chan ate part of my post.In addition to being a very versatile weapon in the hands of a skilled fighter, a simple staff is also easy to replace if we have to ditch it, can be used like the legendary 10-foot pole to set off tripwires, snares, pressure plates, et cetera from safety, and doesn't draw the attention of every enemy who sees it by screaming "LOOK AT MY MASSIVE FUCKOFF HUGE SWORD! KILL ME FIRST SO I CAN'T SHANK YOU WITH IT!"
Could we imbue tags with our release?
>>42670926Our Jutsu can put us on god tier easily. Our release is so stupidly broken that the moment we reach jonin level competency with it even Pain won't be able to touch us.
>>42670982I'm pretty sure the answer is "yes, but why".Because it still has to connect somehow, and why would you rather stun someone than blow them up outside certain corner cases?
>>42671007Sometimes visibility is good, nonlethality is good, broken bones is good
>>42671000Pretty sure you're thinking wood release, anon. So far Impact has mostly been "wind but with a gimmick".I'll reserve judgement until I see an actual interesting application of it.
>>42671000Which is partially why I'm suggesting against using a weapon that is (at least as far as I'm aware) completely unique within the setting, in favor of something simpler. A staff has a lower barrier to entry, while still being very versatile, less likely to draw attention to us in a fight, and (due to our Release) capable of hurting somebody just as much.
>>42670965I don't know, I think it can be used for non-impact strength, too. Tsunade's strong enough to lift and wield weapons sized for summons. Granted, she does have a Strength score of 5, so she's pretty damn strong even without her jutsu, but I'm not sure Strength 5 is that strong. Maybe it's an application of her medical jutsu letting her supercharge her muscles, or something.
I still think getting reverse summoned into the monkey land seems like a good idea>Reminisce with Enmu by hearing him prattle on about stories>Get to know the monkeys there a bit>Maybe spend time skip in there getting swole
>>42671047She imbues her strength with her Chakra too so it's like an 8.
>>42671047I'll freely admit, I wish Laze hadn't included stats. It's like power levels in DBZ: they don't really matter at a certain point, and in fact trying to make them make sense just leaves you more confused.
>>42670520>>42670529>>42670542>>42670543>>42670544>>42670545>>42670552>>42670559>>42670843https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVeOVahsu70&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=49"Well, let's go see him then." you suggest.Sai leads you out to the training grounds where Lee and Sakura are currently sparring. Lee certainly doesn't look like his arm just got done being broken. When they see you approach, they take a break."It is good to see you again, Kon." Lee smiles as he shoots you a thumbs up. "I am sure you have been undergoing strict training. I myself have only recently recovered, but make no mistake, I will be sure to catch up to you!">A.Talk about something (what?)>B.Ask something (what?)>C.Was just dropping in to say hi>D.Other
>>42671035Alright then.>Impact Style: People's Elbow. Leap up into the air using impact release to reach unimaginable heights. Fall upon the enemy from this great height in a painful elbow drop, using Impact chakra to ensure all the force of the blow goes into the target instead of shattering the user's arm.

>>42671110My vote is "fuck picking a specialty after like four months being a damn ninja".
>>42671110>muh strawpollNot only is making strawpolls one of the biggest examples of player faggotry during quests (you're not the fucking QM bitch, your stupid poll has zero authority), it's also incredibly easy to cheat.

"Sasuke's been down ever since he found out about his brother's illness. I can't imagine he feels any better after what happened on your mission. Try to cheer him up, will you?"The two of them go back to training and Sai joins them, while you leave the training grounds.>A.Go see someone>B.Go somewhere>C.Head home>D.Other
>>42671166I hate to agree with someone who's this salty, but he has a point. Not only are we nowhere near the point where that question matters, but approaching it that way is dumb as hell.

>>42671371I think it would be better if we got to the point we could summon Enma and keep on trucking afterward. That way we wouldn't leave the village for extended periods of time.After all, Sarutobi's dying words were about us protecting the village, and looking after Konohamaru. We can't do that if we're never around.

>>42671721>D."Don't worry, you'll get stronger, I know it. Maybe we can train together in the future?" Let's make some plans for the future before>C. Let's find Tenten and explain ourselves.
>>42671721>A.Talk to Sasuke more"Don't worry about it. Sometimes life doesn't go according to plan, for sannin, future kages, or green chunin. What matters is that we're still trying."
>>42671721>>A.Talk to Sasuke moreI sense a lack of sincerity."Neji did all the work with Gaara. And I didn't do much about your brother."Then>>C.Take your leave
>>42671721>A. "Hey, no problem. Honestly, this whole 'being strong' thing took me by surprise. Brand new Kekkei Genkai. Who'da thought? Speaking of, we need to figure out if we're gonna change the set-up we use for the squad. Need to do teamwork things, make sure to account for all the new abilities."
>>42671797Reminds me a little of what good-Orochimaru said to Tsunade.
>>42671721>A.Talk to Sasuke more"Yeah, I don't think I can really call either of those something I did. More just something I was there for while someone else solved the problem. Best I can say is that I distracted the enemy more than I did our side, and didn't die along the way."
>>42671721Supporting>>42671810After that>B.Talk to someone elseTenten
>>42671810Let's try not to turn this into talking shop. We're here to visit a friend, not a subordinate.
>>42671742>>42671771>>42671778>>42671797>>42671801>>42671810"Neji really did all the work against Gaara, I didn't do much." you insist. "As for being strong, you're plenty strong yourself. We'll train together again, and you'll see.""We've got a mission tomorrow." Sasuke smirks. "The team back together again. I'm looking forward to it."Before you can leave, Itachi calls you over."Kon, is it?" he asks. "I can't thank you enough. For looking after my brother, and for enduring what you have on my behalf. To be honest, it's somewhat of a burden to have so many people put their faith in me like this. That I may bring prosperity to the village someday. Tell me, Kon. What are your aspirations as a ninja? What do you want to do for this village, in the future?">A.I don't know quite yet>B.I'll get some great position and help lead the village>C.I just want to be a normal ninja, serving the village>D.Other
>>42672074>D.Other"Protect as many people as I can, however I can. I owe it to my parents, I promised it to Sarutobi sensei... and I guess I take a little pride in it too."
>>42672074>A.I don't know quite yetUntil i find said motivation i'll just stick with>C.I just want to be a normal ninja, serving the village
>>42672074>I will serve the village to the best of my ability, just as my father and mother did before me.
>>42672074>A.I don't know quite yetWhatever comes I suppose. If others think we can handle greater responsibilities, than we'll do our best.
>>42672074>>42672107>This will do
>>42672074>A.I don't know quite yet>D. "But I'd like to help however I can!"
>>42672074>A.I don't know quite yet"I just wanna be a ninja my parents would be proud of"
>>42672074>A.I don't know quite yet
>>42672107>this breaks the Tsunade
>>42672074>>A.I don't know quite yet>>D.Other"Keep the people I care about alive. Beyond that... not sure, really."Demolitions, Kon. You know it to be your truest calling.
>>42672074>A.>D."I guess as long as the people I care about are happy and safe, I'm okay with whatever comes."
>>42672114Are you kidding me right now? Kon's got a pretty clear motivation.
>>42672074>We protect what those who went ahead of us cherished, so those that come after will have a future."That's what Sarutobi sensei taught me. That's what I'm going to do. As long as I'm alive...I'll protect this village and it's people however I can."
>>42672074>D.Other"I want to kill Orochimaru."
>>42672196Wording it as 'Avenge Sensei' might be a bit more appropriate
>>42672217MAYBE I could get behind "I want to prove Sensei right". But I still don't think that line of thought should be our answer.
>>42672230Oh, I don't think it's emotionally healthy, but I can see "kill the man who killed my teacher while I was powerless to stop it" is a pretty normal reaction to something like that.
>>42672074"I just want to help people. If that means leading, I'll do that. If that means shutting my mouth and taking orders, I'll do that too."
>>42672260>I can seeExcept that's... you know. Not really in character.Kon's never really shown any strong predilection towards revenge as a motive. Pure pragmatism on occasion, but mostly "how do I keep the people I like from being killed by the people I don't like".
>>42672260>>42672298Perhaps just 'I don't want to be so weak that the people who are precious to me have to die for me.'
Sasuke and Itachi both seem pretty convinced Kon actually had some meaningful role in Tsunade's return to the village. I wonder if she said something.
>>42672298We can't really say it's not in character because Kon's never had a reason to think about revenge, before. This is the first time someone he's cared about has died on him, and he was right there when it happened. I think wanting revenge is reasonable. It shouldn't be all-consuming, but it would fit with being a goal for him.
>>42672107"I don't know if I want to aspire to certain position or anything yet." you answer. "But I will protect as many people as I can, however I can. I owe it to my parents, I promised it to Sarutobi sensei... and I guess I take a little pride in it too."Itachi smiles. "That alone is a good aspiration to have. Lord Jiraiya is anxious for me to recover so he can get out of office and return to his own devices. When that time comes, I'm sure I can count on you."Once Itachi is finished, you leave the hospital. It's almost evening now, so you might have time to meet with someone else before dinner.>A.Go meet someone>B.Go somewhere>C.Return home>D.Other
>>42672347Maybe she'll be our tsundere teacher?Not a love interest, just a teacher who hides her platonic affection for Kon behind an angry mask.
>>42672357>B.Go somewhereTRAINING GROUNDS!
>>42672074>"Well, my aspirations are pretty simple. Help the village, become a Jonin, maybe Anbu, do some missions, blow things up, try and live long enough to settle down and even retire."
>>42672357>A.Go meet someoneTenten. We've been putting it off, and it only gets worse the longer we wait.
>>42672357>A. TentenWe should really explain shit to her, man

>>42672357>A.Go meet someoneKiba. See how he's doing.

>>42672357Go meet up with Tenouttaten.
>>42672357>>A.Go meet someoneI feel like we should see Kiba before we have the mission. I also think we really need to talk to Tenten....Business first. Kiba. Who knows, maybe there'll be time after dinner.
>>42672438Or we could always invite Tenten to dinner. Saves time that way.
>>42672357>>A.Go meet someoneTenten
>>42672357>A.Go meet someoneAsk 10/10 out to dinner. Somewhere nice. We should have money after that mission with Sarutobi Sensei

"It sure has been a while. When you left for so long without telling anybody, I was ready to be mad at you, but I guess now it's a good thing you went." she says, her head tilted down.>A.Ask how she's been>B.Tell her about something>C.I was just checking in>D.Other

>>42672608A.Then smoothly ask her to dinner. Not our uncles place, just somewhere simple. Like that ramen shop from earlier.
>>42672608>>A.Ask how she's been>>B.Tell her about somethingAsk her what she wants to know after she tells us about stuff.
>>42672608>D.Other"People keep saying that, and it's starting to get weird. Lady Tsunade beat me up with one finger, I shouted at her some, and Kabuto slapped my tendons in half. I was so far out of my depth it was almost funny.""Still... I'm glad you're not mad. And I don't intend to run off like that again any time soon."
>>42672608>D."Sorry, it was kind of late notice...">B."You know, I never got to tell you about my release. You want to hear?"
>>42672608>>A.Ask how she's been>>D.OtherApologise for not letting her know before we left. We weren't given much in the way of advance warning.
What, so we're not even going to touch the fact that she's like the fourth person we met today that seems convinced we actually DID something?Hell, Itachi and Sasuke were in a position to know some of what actually happened, and they STILL seem to think we did something worthwhile.
>>42671047>but I'm not sure Strength 5 is that strong.Strength 5 in the data books is the best humanly possible
>>42672608>A.>B. "Yeah...sorry about that. When Sarutobi sensei asked if I wanted go train some more with him I...I kinda..." Get all sad as you remember him.
>>42672685You're pretty dense aren't youThey're talking about the fact that your teacher died
>>42671047>Strength 5 is that strong5.0 is the most humanly powerful someone can get m8
>>42672733>"it's a good thing you went">because your teacher diedI must be dense, because I don't see how those two statements connect.
>>42672758If you hadn't gone you would have just never seen him again
>>42672758>It's a good thing you went, because if you didn't there'd be noone to be there for Konohamaru, or keep their head together and give Tsunade that last push.
>>42672758Because if we hadn't we wouldn't have been there when our teacher died.Then we would have just gotten the news here without knowing what happened or if we could have helped or anything.
>>42672769And watching him die as we frantically try to keep his heart beating is somehow better for a thirteen year old?
>>42672798For this particular 13 year old yes. He has been raised in a society and culture that means you never leave a comrade behind and you never betray your friends. As it is we did everything we possible could to help him and he knew it at the end.
>>42672756Yes, but I don't think it is, on it's own, strong enough to lift a tanto the size of an office building.
>>42672619>>42672623>>42672625>>42672636>>42672646>>42672658>>42672724"Yeah, sorry about that, it was kind of short notice." you respond. "Didn't I promise to tell you about my release before? I never did do that.""Hey, yeah. You did." Tenten replies. "With all that happened, it kind of just slipped my mind."You tell Tenten about your release, and what you've been able to do with your training. She tries to act like it's no big deal, but you can tell she thinks it's cool."So how have you been doing?" you ask."I've been swamped with missions lately." Tenten answers with a sigh. "Being a Chunin is a pain, as Shikamaru loves to put it. You'll find out yourself here, in a bit. Other than that, things have pretty much returned to normal. The attack might as well be a thing of the distant past."The sun is starting to set.>A.Talk more>B.Go home>C.Go somewhere else>D.Other
>>42672798Tenten said that because she thinks it's good that you got to spend another month with him before it was too lateShe doesn't even know the details of what happened
>>42672940>A.Talk moreSo, we never did have our match...
>>42672940>D.OtherAsk her out to dinner
>>42672940>A. Talk more.Invite her to dinner.

>>42672996>>42672999This stuff, and while at dinner >>42672989
>>42672940Ask is she wants to go and get some ramen
>>42672996>>42672999>>42672940Looks like it's time to ask the Ten/Ten to dinner.
>>42672940>A.Talk more"I'll be honest with you, it wasn't long ago I was catching cats for the Daimyo's wife... and now I've been trusted with Sarutobi sensei's dying wish to keep his home, the village he thought of as his family, safe.""I'm not entirely sure yet what to do with that."
>>42672940>B.Go homeJust go home so we can advance the plot.
>>42672996>>42672999Get that bitch dinner. Bitch's love dinner.
>>42673028Man, we just had ramen, too much of it will bloat you up
>>42672940>>A.Talk moreCatch up about our training. What each of us has been learning, what we're considering looking into, that sort of thing.Totally not a workaholic.
>>42672989Let's fucking not. It serves no real purpose at this point over training together or something.
>>42673028Fuck ramen, were talking her somewhere nice. It's our first date and allAlso>>42672940>D.OtherWhile asking her out to dinner spill some spaghetti
>>42672996>>42673023>>42672999>>42673028I feel like we should specify if it's a date or dinner as friends
>>42673058Silly Anon, everyone knows there is no such thing as too much ramen.
>>42673153The best thing is when you're dating someone you're actually friends with. Less drama, no real pressure to "make things romantic" or to impress anyone. Just two people who really like each other and want to do stuff together, and in the later stages who happen to also be shagging exclusively.Just let it happen, anon. Kon's already Tenten's best friend, and she's dropped some cues in the past.
>>42673159Tell that to a takeaway bathroom on a Saturday night.
>>42673159All the fucking salt though.Soba, though. Soba's worth it.
>>42673153Nah no specification, just go with the flow of life. Plus Kon's in kind of a depressed state and IC I don't even think he is thinking about that right now, he just wants some solice with someone he feels a connection to
>>42673153Nah, let's leave it vague.If she asks if it's a date, we can do the "Do you want it to be a date?" thing.
>>42673215You all that salt make ypu thirsty, tenten will know a place to get drinks at later. ;D
>>42673239And if Kiba tries to tease us when he finds out, we can just ask him how Haku's been doing.
>>42673318Eh. We should do that anyway.
>>42673337In due time. That sort of thing is better played as turnabout.
"So, Tenten." you say, trying to sound casual. "Do you want to go get dinner together?""Well, I don't have anything going right now." Tenten thinks for a second. "And your uncle's food is pretty great. Sure, let's go."Before you can make any further clarifications, Tenten heads off in the direction of your uncle's shop, leaving you to follow.When you arrive, your uncle gives you a sly grin and has a laugh at your expense before serving up your meal. As you eat, the two of you talk about various things, training and missions and such."You know..." you start. "We never did get our match.""I suppose not." Tenten notes. "But we could always spar anytime. I'm pretty sure you'd wipe the floor with me anyway though, so I'm not even sure if I want it now."The two of you soon finish eating. It's just about curfew now.>A.Talk about something else>B.Leave it at that>C.Other

>>42673353>>A.Talk about something elsePlease you wouldn't have made it to Chunin this early if you weren't amazing. I'll hold you too that spar soon.Then say goodnight, debating offering to walk her back to the shop but Tenten is a strong independent ninja

>>42673353>A.Talk about something elseShe wanted to know about our special technique.
>>42673353>>B.Leave it at that"It was good, seeing you again."Huh. Did not realise curfew was a thing. Best cut this short before we get cut off.Oh, and tell her we have a mission in the morning. Depending on what it is we might well be away for a while.
>>42673451Yes, tell her we have a mission tomorrow so she's not left wondering what happened to us again!
>>42673353>A.Talk about something else>B.Leave it at thatOffer to have a friendly spar/teaching session.

>>42673687KekMaybe she's knows and she's just trying to not hurt our feelings
>>42673410>>42673353I support this.
It's getting late, so Tenten makes to leave.As she's doing so, you comment. "You know, we should do this sort of thing more often.""I certainly wouldn't mind. I love coming here." Tenten replies. "Good luck on your mission tomorrow."Once she leaves you head up for bed, intending to be ready early for your mission.The next morning, you arrive at the designated location to find Kiba and Sasuke already there."Come on dude, you aren't interested in her, right?" you hear Kiba talking with Sasuke. "So help me out here! Tell me what she's like!""I told you, I don't even know her that well. She just works for my family." Sasuke replies, irritated. "Anyway, I've got more important things to do than help you out with girls. I'd rather spend my time training.">A.What are you guys talking about>B.Good morning>C.It's been a while, Kiba>D.We still gonna be waiting for Kakashi Sensei a while?>E.Other

"So, since Kakashi is gonna take another couple hours, why don't we go over the new shit so everyone knows the limits of what the team can do.

>>42673876Exactly. She wants to see how long it takes us to just straight out SAY "Tenten, I like you. You're pretty, and you're smart, and you make my heart go 'doki doki', will you be my girlfriend?"
>>42673876You don't need to rush it mang. Just hang out with her and be there for her when it counts.
>>42673746I hope you're not planning to have Kiba be interested in Tenten. I don't want to have to shut our teammate/bro down like that.

She's super cute and she likes animals just like me. She seemed like she was kind of into Sasuke, but he says he's not interested, so I wanted him to help me out. I guess I'll put it on hold for now, though. We do have a mission.""That's right." Sasuke says.

>>42674774So how does the OC release work?Is it kinetic force in which we can control to punch fuckers in the face at a distance?Will we be able to use it just like Okuyaso's The Hand if we're good enough with it?
>>42674814It works by sending out shockwaves of force and numbing electricity through the air. Normally, the electricity would get snuffed by the air, since it's an insulator, but our wind half of our nature seems to cancel that out.Not quite yet.Yes.
>>42674678>A.Understood>B.Anything else I need to know?>C.Will we be attacked by anyone?

"This is a C rank mission, but I doubt you guys will run into anyone. Your team was chosen for its speed, so just get out there and get to it."Your team takes off to the West, headed for the outpost.>A.Move at the fastest possible pace>B.Go fast, but reserve some strength just in case>C.Don't wear yourselves out, maybe talk strategy as you go

>>42674945>>A.Move at the fastest possible pace
>>42674945C.Don't wear yourselves out, maybe talk strategy as you goIf we're not expected to run into trouble why rush? Might as well plan in case we do.
>>42674945>B.Go fast, but reserve some strength just in case
>>42674945>>B.Go fast, but reserve some strength just in caseThey want speed so lets give them that
>>42674945>B.Go fast, but reserve some strength just in caseIt does you no good to reach the fight faster, if you're exhausted and can't fight once you get there.
>>42674971Because we were picked for our speed, let's not make them regret it by deliberately going against the one reason they picked our team
>>42674945>>B.Go fast, but reserve some strength just in case
>>42675009Well, yeah that's true but, is being cautious bad? Maybe we can plan now then just leg it when we deliver the scroll and run back to the village?
>>42674945>>B.Go fast, but reserve some strength just in caseWe were picked for speed, but overcommiting is never wise. Especially with our luck.
>>42675068Ya think orochibitch will appear outta nowhere just for teh lulz or what?
>>42674969Are you, by chance, the Railgunfag?
>>42675092We have a new, never-before-seen Kekkei Genkai. What do you think?
>>42675114>RailgunfagI'm sorry, what?I'm not that guy, i'm just really confused
>>42675092Nah....Well, I didn't before.Chances are someone will come along to fuck up our day. Just, hopefully not him. Or her. Or whatever Orochimaru is these days.

>>42675158>BSuper-sniffer and crazy eyes are on our team.
>>42675141Some of us are looking for the most recent pdf for the railgun-based A Certain Scientific RPG, because all of the mirrors died long ago. Railgunfag was a dev, and SleepyAnon, who is possibly the dev, posting on quest threads happened to be the quickest way to contact.>>42666141

"Sasuke and I will stay here and wait for your signal."Kiba and Akamaru take off, carefully closing in on the outpost. You see them disappear inside for a moment, but they come right back out to your hiding place."They were just cloaking themselves with genjutsu, guys." he explains.The three of you go into the outpost to find the staff all there."We thought we saw some unidentified ninja, and we were taking precautions." A Jonin explains. "Do you have the scroll?"You produce the scroll, and the Jonin makes several hand signs to undo the seal. After reading it, he prepares another scroll and hands it to you."I've received the message." he states. "I need you to get this scroll back to the village as soon as possible. We might need some backup.">A.Head for the village as fast as you can>B.We could back you up>C.Other

>>42675463>getting info back to the village, and requesting back up. They might need more than just a Chunin and two genin are able to provide. We should travel at fullspeed.
>>42675463>ABut quietly get Sauce to dispel the genjutsu. Make sure this is all on the level.
>>42675463>>A.Head for the village as fast as you canCheese it. The sooner we get back, the sooner they get enemy-appropriate backup. Hopefully not including us.

He unseals it, then reads its contents."They need some specialized ninja for this one." the chunin tells you. "Good job, guys. File the report, and then get some sleep."The chunin disappears in a puff of smoke."Is that it?" Kiba asks, still panting.>A.That's a disappointing first mission as leader>B.We did our job, guys>C.Hey, I still have to do paperwork>D.Other
>>42675557They couldn't have opened the scroll if it wasn't

>>42675656Yeah and you just got paid for it, so unless you would also like my paperwork go get some rest.
>>42675656>DThanks for volunteering for the paperwork Kiba.

>>42675656>B.We did our job, guys"Honestly, it's kind of refreshing to not meet any opposition."Proceed with thousand yard stare.
>>42675793>full Charlie in the jungleBut seriously, there was no reason we couldn't have taken a book on sealing or something to read.
"Hey, we did our job guys." you pant. "And I still have to do paperwork. Unless you want to do it, Kiba?""No thanks, I'm going to bed." Kiba says as he takes off."Good luck with that, Kon." you hear from Sasuke as he leaves as well.You head to the main hall and file the mission report. It's not too bad, but you can see how doing a lot of these could get tedious.By the time you get home, the sun is rising. You head straight up to bed to get some sleep.Your first mission as leader may have been uneventful, but at least you got off on the right foot.>End of Chapter 23No new thread until Friday, stuff going onTwitter is @LazeQM
>>42675852You ever tried running while reading? I have.Ran headfirst into a lamppost. Wound up bleeding all over my book.Didn't even get much read - between the shaking and the near impossibility of turning a page without either stopping or tearing something, I got maybe one and a half pages in before I had my little run in. After which I was in no state to read or run. Or think.
>>42675987>stuff going onI hope that goes well.Thanks for running, Laze.
>>42675987Thanks for running LazeAlso archive this bitch
So does Tenten just not get the signals, or is Kon really just too damn subtle for his own good? Or have the exploding tags just led people to believe he's incapable of subtlety?
>>42676087All of the above
>>42675987Good thread, Laze.>>42676087Hey, we can be subtle. Sometimes we throw explosives and don't set them off until later, or we only use one tag rather than twenty. That's like a ninja stealth masterclass.
Can't help but notice Tsunade hasn't given her necklace to anyone. Is she just not feeling it that much?
Holy shit, Mari's team right off the bat. Man did we pick a bad area to start.
>>42676364She intends to give it to Konohamaru later>>42676394Wrong thread, anon
>>42676394Wrong thread, anon.
>>42676394Shit wrong thread, ignore.
>>42676402That had best mean Konohamaru becomes Hokage in the future instead of, you know, dying a horrible death. We've already lost Sarutobi, let's not lose our little brother too.
>>42676464No offense to Nawaki, but that kid was a total scrub compared to KonohamaruAnd by the time Konohamaru is Dan's age he's gonna be a fucking beast
>>42676514I am pleased with this result as long as Kon survives to see such a day and be able to say 'That's my little brother up there, wrecking shit as Hokage.'
>>42676514Fuck yeah.I bet Kon will probably be Konohamaru's bodyguard or something, right?
>>42676574If you wanted, he'd probably be cool with that
>>42676574With the barriers we can put up, we could easily get assigned S-Rank bodyguard missions as a jonin. Probably even Guardian Ninja.>The Immovable Shield of the Hidden Leaf
>>42676597>The Endless Explosion of the Hidden LeafFixed
>>42676597>>42676629the explosive wall of the hidden leaf?
>>42676597>>42676629>>42676655Cool Guy of Leaf Town
>>42676655Acceptable. Also, nice dub dubs
the explosion of spring time youththis way we get guy and lee on our side
>>42676730No can do. If we wear the suit, we wont have enough pockets to store all our boom in.
>>42676655>Konoha's reactive armour.>The drums of war.>those noisy guys down the street.All acceptable titles for our clan.
We could make a better feedback with a flat object and call the tech 'Unmovable Object"Would be pretty cool huh?
So, what's up with Sora? We gonna see some nine-tails chakra person?
>>42677033After the nine-tails attack, some ultra-nationalist ninja took what was left of the nine-tails chakra and put it in a young boy.
>>42677076Oh, that fillerI still haven't figured out what filler I want to use or not
Sword+chain a LA Hyourinmaru: yay or nay?
>>42677125Is Sai gay?Is Haku Gay?Will the two best boys every explore their bestness together?
>>42677281Nobody is gay in Eugenics: The Series, anon
>>42677239No. Shiro a shit and he poisons all associated with him.
>>42677281Why not a Sai-Haku sandwich with Kon in the middle?
>>42677300I don't know.His LT is still a total megahottie in spite of association with him.
>>42677300Who the fuck is Shiro
>>42677353Last I saw, she dead, son.Even deader than most of the cast.
>>42677353That and his sword is basically a big-boy kyoketsu shove. Swordfags get to sword, ksfags get to ks.
>>42677281>Is Haku Gay?I thought it was already confirmed that he and Ino were an item
>>42677380Bleach. Ice shota. Informed Competence: The Character.
>>42677394Still sexy.Although personally I'd go for Nanao.
>>42677450I don't watch/read since 2005, got bored of it and can't even remember how that guy was>Ice shota. Informed Competence: The Character.Wow. can i bother you to tell me what he's done in later parts?
>>42677503Nothing of any merit. He's done a lot of bleeding. He worfs harder than Chad.Thankfully, that seems over with. From the way things are looking last I read, he's not going to be bleeding any more. Ding, dong, the bitch is dead.
So, how about that Hinata?
>>42677585Gotta be less annoying than canon.
>>42677602I don't think she's annoying.
>>42677585I'm jumping into the next arc on Friday, cause I just want to get part 1 over withThen those guys can stop complaining about railroading
>>42677626Will we still get to play in between parts 1 & 2?I'd like for us to train and do stuff, not skip directly to Shippuden.
>>42677626Can we at least do one filler mission, first? Get those squad social links?Or maybe do some off-screen shit?LikeYou've done X missions with your team and they were boring as fuck, and in your free time, you (pick three):>Hung out with person (who?)>Trained a stat (which?)>Learned a Jutsu (What?)>Other ???
>>42676791>>Konoha's reactive armour.So basicly Sundowner?
>>42677679There will be a short timeskip at the beginning of the next thread which will be like thatBasically the same thing happened back in thread #8
>>42677733Honestly, the format I suggested is the best for timeskips. Give anons several options, pick more than one and go with whatever's popular. We had a big shitstorm last time because for all our training it seemed like "bloop, done". It's like being a woman and having sex with a man.
So what exacly we gonna train/learn/acquire in timeskip?
>>42678031An invisibility/camouflage jutsu.Shadow Clone if we can find a teacher.A little medical ninjutsu/chakra enhanced strength if Tsunade ever takes an interest in her 'sibling' student.
