>>42853354It's time...We must substitute for Fuu.
Yay, finally caught one of these threads live, time to save the best girl
>>42853354So really, the only way we can win is to go back to basics: speed of action, violence of action, psychological pressure. Always be moving, always be attacking, and use the number of bodies and variety of attacks on our side to always keep Kakuzu guessing about what sort of attack is coming next and from where. Mix in flash bombs and Impact to create openings, attack from unexpected directions, and use explosive tags to maintain constant offensive pressure. The "big attacks" can come from combination techniques like what we did with Sasuke in the Snow mission (Wave 2.0).
>>42853413But ten/10 isn't in danger yet?
>>42853451The fuck outta here
>>42853354Can the Sharingan still measure chakra precisely? because I have a plan.Sauske watches us use heavenly spear. Then he adds fire next time. And Everything dies
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmvqOx1wY3EYou and Temari have just arrived to the scene of a battle. It looks like Sasuke and Kiba are both pretty worn down already, but they don't seem to have any major injuries. Kankuro is unharmed, but his two puppets look like they've taken quite a beating already.Their enemy, the masked man with stitched arms, looks almost unharmed himself."Kon, Temari, be careful!" Kankuro calls out. "This guy can harden his skin to nullify attacks, and can separate his limbs to act independently from his body. He also seems to have a range of Earth jutsu."The masked man looks over to you. "More of them? Maybe it's about time I evened the numbers out, then."The man removes his cloak, revealing that the stitching goes all over his body. He has four masks on his back. He leans forward and starts to exert a great effort. His skin begins to ripple, and from his back emerge four large black figures, wearing the masks from his back."There we are." the man says once the figures finish forming. "Now the rest of you will be easily dealt with as I rip that heart from you, Uchiha! Unfortunately for your friends, I'm far too old not to know that you don't fight an Uchiha halfheartedly!"The man closes in on Sasuke as two of the four black figures approach Kiba and Kankuro and the other two head for you and Temari.>A.Confront these two with Temari>B.Temari can handle this, Sasuke needs help>C.Kiba and Kankuro are in bad shape, they need help>D.Other
>>42853460You get the fuck out. 10/ten best girl was established in the beginning and unless fuu jumps onto our dick I HIGHLY doubt kon would care about her.
>>42853500>>A.Confront these two with Temari
>>42853500>D. Open up with a Heavenly Lance attack.
>>42853500>>B.Temari can handle this, Sasuke needs helpCould use and Sasuke do something similar to the: Scorch Release: Halo Hurricane Jet Black Arrow Style Zero but with our impact release to create a Kekkei Tōta?
>>42853500>D.OtherSummon Sarujizo, instruct him to combine his Fire release with Temari's Wind while we get everyone else out of immediate danger.
>>42853587I'm supporting this
>>42853587>>42853500this looks like a good idea
>>42853587You immediately bite your thumb and perform the hand signs. "Summoning Jutsu!"Sarujizo appears in a puff of smoke."Sarujizo!" you direct. "Use your Fire release alongside Temari's Wind release! I'll help the others!"You run for Sasuke first, and are able to grab him as he's knocked back from one of the masked man' punches. Next you come up to Kiba and Kankuro. Before you can move them, you hear the masked man perform a jutsu."Fire Release: Searing Migraine!"One of the masked creatures in front of you opens its mouth, and releases a huge blast of fire in your direction.>A.Try to dodge>B.Try to block it>C.Direct the others>D.Other
>>42853772>B.Try to block it
>>42853772Use the shield wall impact release.
>>42853772Block it with our new jutsu!
>>42853772>>A.Try to dodgeBlocking fire with wind, even in combination with something else, doesn't often end well.
>>42853772>Impact through it!>Mix feed back with Heaven's Lance.Punch through it, absorb the remaining energy and use it right back at him!Or just dodge.
>>42853785>>42853789>>42853795>>42853802Are we forgetting that this is explicitly stated to cost a lot of chakra? We haven't even landed a hit on this guy yet, and we know from previous experience that Akatsuki operates in two-man cells.
>>42853772>D. Hit it with a Shattershot. See what happens.
>>42853772>A.Try to dodgeSpeed is our main stat. Let's dodge and try to hit the mask with the Heavenly Lance or or Shattershot.
>>42853772>A.Try to dodgeSo, is it wrong that I want to come up with new names for our attacks that are Federation mobile suit puns to counter Kakuzu's Zeon mobile suit puns?
>>42853772>A.Try to dodgeOh shit oh fuck oh crap oh no.
>>42853916Anon, we can't name everything Jim.
>>42853802Me switching to.>>42853896This
>>42853916>Kakuzu's Zeon mobile suit puns
>>42853936Every last one of Kakuzu's ninjutsu are Gundam references.I want to copy Gian from him so badly you would not believe.
>>42853936"Searing Migraine" was called "Zukokku". This is a corruption of Z'Gok, which is pronounced "Zugokku". This isn't the only technique he has that does this.Kakuzu is a damned Zeek apologist. Titans did nothing wrong.
We should learn how to summon lots of weapons/tags and make our own version of Unlimited Blade Works or Gates of Babylon. Infinite impact/explosive kunais and shurikens being summoned at high speed against one opponent.
>>42853936The Japanese names for all of Kakuzu's attacks are made of the same characters as the names of various mobile suits. The "Earth Grudge Fear" technique that gives him the detachable limbs is "Jiong", same pronunciation as the Zeong (which has detachable limbs). His armor technique is "Domu", like the heavily-armored Dom. His stabbing lightning beam is Gian, a reference to the beam rapier-wielding Gyan. And his fire and wind attacks are Zukokku and Atsugai, references to the Z'Gok and Acguy which don't actually have anything to do with fire or wind but he was going to be damned if he wasn't going to stick to a theme.
>>42854003Anon don't let gravity weigh your soul down.
>>42854003>Kakuzu is a damned Zeek apologist. Titans did nothing wrong.B does not follow A, anon.Zeon were fucking scum.The Titans were ALSO fucking scum.Neo Zeon? Fucking scum.Glemy Faction? Fucking scum.Char's Neo Zeon? Fucking scum.The Sleeves? Fucking scum.All just assholes who did horrible shit for the sake of their own egos.
>>42854175At least Londo Bell were cool.
>>42854175Don't get me wrong, Titans were as bad as anyone else. I was saying that to be as anti-Zeon as possible.But we should definitely name a technique after a Titans MS and use it against Kakuzu.
>>42853807>>42853896>>42853916>>42853928>>42853935You jump away from the blast as fast as you can. You, Sasuke, Kiba and Akamaru get away with only a bit of injury, but Kankuro is forced to shield himself with one of his puppets as he dodges. He's okay, but the puppet is charred beyond usage.You prepare a jutsu to try and strike one of the creature's masks. The one that just shot the fire is wide open, so you take the opportunity while you can."Impact Release: Heavenly Lance!"You fire the beam, and it hits the mask straight on. The figure collapses into a black puddle.Meanwhile however, Kankuro, Kiba, and Akamaru have been barely dodging wind attacks from the other masked figure.It seems this opponent has ways to use all five elements, with his separate masks.Sasuke has been grabbed from below by the masked man's tendril arm sticking from the ground. He's been pulled back into melee range, and is struggling to keep from taking a hit straight on.Over where you started, the ground is wet. One of the masked creatures seems to have made several water attacks, and the other is firing lightning. Temari is using her fan to fly, avoiding standing on the water and getting shocked. Sarujizo must have been unlucky enough to have taken such an attack, as he seems to have been unsummoned. Temari can't seem to get a chance to attack, but she's still unharmed, so she seems to be dodging alright.>A.Help Sasuke>B.Help Kiba and Kankuro>C.Help Temari>D.Other
>>42854224I had a plan for a combo with Sasuke, but I wanted to name it Oblivion Release: The Spear of The Most Secret and Sorrowful Of The Bearers Of The Endless Destiny Of All Creation Which Wander Endlessly Amidst The Forgotten Sights And Falling Tears Along the Tread Of Ancient Ashen Footsteps Through The Shadow Of That Which Comes And Into That Riotous Cacophony Which Births All Fools And Steals All Beauty, Who Heralds Through Her Silence The Stills and Chills Of Those Who Were Not Born And Who Will Not Fade 'Till All Things Fall And In That Most Grim Harvest Form The Restful Tomb Of All Awakened Life
>>42854264Do you really want to upstage Minato so much that you need to use Abyssal Exalted names?
>>42854185Well yeah.Bright was running the show there.And while he was a HORRIBLE father (when you comin' home dad/I don't know when/but we'll get together then Katz/you know we'll have a good time then), Bright was a genuinely good man who held himself and his men to some actual god damn standards of conduct.>>42854224>not coming up with some pun reference to the Alex, and using it for an attack that leaves nothing but a pile of hamburgerIt's like you DON'T want to drink Zeonfag bitchtears every time we use the attack.>>42854256>A.Help SasukeHe's in the most immediate danger.
>>42854256>Direct everyone to hit the opposite element of each mask with their strongest move.Wonder if Sasuke worked on that chidori sword move?
>>42854256>A. Another Lance at the main body.
>>42854224Asshimar? Barzam? Byalant? Hambrabi or Hazel?Or we just stick Mk.II at the end of one of our current moves.
>>42854256>A.Help SasukeHuh. In canon Water was the heart he stored inside himself and he sent out Earth to attack with. I guess he's got a different set of hearts currently equipped, then?
>>42854338Hold on, I'm looking through a kanju dictionary to make a good one, just give me a little bit.
>>42854256>A.Help SasukeRun Lightning Release through any loose tendrils that connect to Kakuzu's main body.We know he's primarily an Earth user, and Lightning is strong against that.
>>42854224>>42854311>>42854338You guys are doing it all wrong.If he's a Zeonfag, then he's a UC fanboy.What is the BEST weapon for trolling UC fanboys?
>>42854371It'd be awesome if we could run that through our foot to paralyze someone while making the hand seals for Heavenly Lance.
>>42854286>>42854310>>42854311>>42854343>>42854371You decide that Sasuke needs help the most, and close in on his fight.As you approach, the masked man turns to you. He currently holds Sasuke up by the neck."So you went and destroyed one of my hearts, eh?" the man asks. "I guess I'll have to replace it with one of your friend's. I was planning on taking the one from this Uchiha, and I think he'd be a perfect fit."Before you can respond, the man throws Sasuke at you, and you both are knocked back. By the time you get back up, the man is charging at you two.>A.Both you and Sasuke go to meet him>B.Have Sasuke try and give you an opening>C.Try and give Sasuke an opening>D.Other
>>42854463I was gonna say "00 spam" but that works too.
>>42854476>A.Both you and Sasuke go to meet him
>>42854476>C.Try and give Sasuke an opening
>>42854476For the love of Jashin can we dual wield swords and turn them into electric lightsabers and go full with?
>>42854338Okay, been looking around, and "Hazel" actually works pretty well. "Hei" can be calm, unite, nature, height (specifically in reference to thrones), barrier, humble, or ruination. "Ze" just means justice. And "Ru" means lapis lazuli, stream, butterbur plant, or delay. So how about an attack called "Impact Release: Humble Justice Stream"?
>>42854476Have the sauce give us an opening for another lance. Let's take out as many of this guys masks as possible.
>>42854476>>C.Try and give Sasuke an openingChidori that fucker
>>42854476>D. "Hey, Sasuke. Just like Land of Snow, right?" Combination Jutsu.
>>42854476>C.Try and give Sasuke an openingThunderbolt or Shattershot, whichever comes out quicker. Either one would stun just fine in this scenario.
>>42854518Sith!Fucking spell checkcheckWe got an electric spam attack that Sasuke can copy!
>>42854509Sauce getting close with chidori equal dead sauce so no we should keep our distance.
>>42854476>B.Have Sasuke try and give you an openingThen nail him with another Lance. "Kon Karagowa, targeted and firing!">>42854487Nah, a lot of UC fanboys will grudgingly acknowledge that season 1 of 00 was at least tolerable.But if you wanna make a Gunota, and a UC fanboy in particular, buttmad as all hell? You hit him with SEED.
>>42854536He can harden himself to the point of receiving no damage, presumably from attacks right up to and including most of Sasuke's repertoire. At this point stunning him and dropping that defense is the best teamwork we can offer.
>>42854544Come to think of it, Sasuke doesn't really have any good ranged jutsu until he gets Amaterasu. All his other attacks require him to get within mid-range at the fatrhest.
>>42854565Build Fighters Try.Maximum tears, maximum rage.
>>42854565Okay, then, how about "Exit Lucidity Sovereign Escape" ( 出寿帝仁, "Desuteini")?
>>42854593And part three of AGE, for that matter.We should just tell him that "Flit a shit, Kio was right." if we have to fight him again.
>>42854611Or "Phenomenal Orchid Empire" (稀蘭倭, "Kira Yamato").
>>42854655>>42854701>use technique>Kakuzu gets the reference IC>all of his remaining hearts go into cardiac arrest
>>42854491>>42854509>>42854540"Sasuke, I'll give you an opening!" you call.As Sasuke jumps back and starts preparing a chidori, you go up to meet the masked man."Impact Release: Shattershot!" you fire your jutsu.The man is knocked back, but rights himself with the tendrils in his body. It seems that with those, he doesn't have to worry about being stunned by your attacks. That limits your options a bit.He comes at you again,.>A.Blast him again>B.Pull weapon>C.Hit him with an Impact infused punch/kick/whatever>D.Just try to dodge his hits>E.Other
So if we do end up ending Kakuzu here, how do we commemorate the event? Cutting a notch into the edge of our headband, perhaps two if we also see his partner off? Make it a running tally?
>>42854476>B.Have Sasuke try and give you an opening
>>42854770Damn it, I knew he'd be able to absorb the impact. It's like trying to punch a net.>B.Pull weaponSword, not kyoketsu-shoge. I don't want to get the line tangled.
>>42854770>A.Blast him againLook for an opening to run Lightning Release into him, but mostly dodge.
>>42854770>C.Hit him with an Impact infused punch/kick/whateverTry to sever the tendrils internally
>>42854796keep his headband, just start attaching them to ourselves as we accumulate more
>>42854770>C.Hit him with an Impact infused punch/kick/whatever
>>42854770>>B.Pull weaponSword to cut anything that gets near us
>>42854826>>42854836If we do this, be sure to run Lightning through it. That's possible even if it's not a specially designed weapon.
>>42854796Nothing.He doesn't DESERVE to be remembered.
>>42854839Eventually we get an entire suit of armor made out of headband plates. I like it.
>>42854839>Kon ends up with a belt/sash made out of Akatsuki headbands
>>42854854Yep.Both Sasuke and Kon can spam that lightning move too. He's seen it before with Sharingan at least.
>>42854770>B.Pull weaponThe sword won't do much against his armor... or so he'll think. Impact may change that. Let's get him in a state of overconfidence.
>>42854910Just regular lighting is strong against earth.
>>42854770>>A.Blast him againI love our bullshit AP beam.
>>42854770Have sauske and us hit him with the air/fire combo at range drop a few traps as we disengage, keep out of melee.
>>42854826>>42854836>>42854844>>42854910You pull out your sword and focus your Impact chakra into it. As the masked man approaches you try to hit him. He keeps dodging most of your swings, but you eventually hit his arm. He turns it black, hardening it, but that causes him to recoil at the blow."What is this?" the man wonders. "You keep using this strange release. A kekkei genkai? Maybe I should take your heart for myself."The man detaches his arms and has them assault you from both sides.>A.Dodge them>B.Attack the arms>C.Try to restrict their movement>D.Other
>>42855019What we need to doe is blow away his head, lock him down and remove it, dude can have as many hearts as he likes but with no brain its irreverent, line up a shot. when we can (mabye even when he tries to take a heart from someone....Heavenly Lance has quite a range.
>>42855070>>C.Try to restrict their movement
>>42855070>D.OtherThe chakra shroud that blasts back anyone who tries to touch us would be a good response, if we have enough energy for it.
>>42855070>C.Try to restrict their movementSubstitute out for a log covered in explosive tags.
>>42855070>D.OtherLet them catch you. Better that his arms be occupied while Sauce does his thing.
>>42855070ok the arms require a heart to operate if they are detatched, likely this is setting us up for him to jump us. How close is he to us OP? If his arms are gone blast him with shatter shot for sasuke to take his head since he has no support to resist the stun now.
>>42855070>>A.Dodge themThose threads are pretty maneuverable. I don't think we'll have much success on the restriction front.>>42855091His hearts are all that matters. His everything else is made out of endlessly regenerating threads in a skinsuit.
>>42855070>D.OtherMake like Palpatine.
>>42855130Or we just drop our entire tag arsenal. Won't kill him but it'd hurt. A lot.
Guys dodn't miss the flags, OP already stated with this arms he can resist our stuns, he just separated them stun and decapitate. thwn blast all his parts to bits but keep the heat...and mabye a heart separately...
>>42855070>C.Try to restrict their movementWe gotta keep him occupied so Sasuke can Chidori him in the butthole.
>>42855153The tendrils are a part of his body. They run throughout it like muscle fibers. Can't help but feel that this and Ukon backpedaling it were specifically to neuter the technique rather than due to any actual properties of the technique itself. Can't prove it of course, but that's because we don't actually know how it works in the first place.
>>42855206genuine question his hair looks pretty greasy, given he is made if it with hard skin can we light him on fire?
You know, if Laze really wanted to mess with us we could win this fight and go after Kakuzu's partner only to find it's someone really tough to defeat. Hidan wasn't Kakuzu's original partner, given that we're somewhere between two and a half and three years before their first appearance it's possible that he's assigned to someone different right now.
>>42855179Our "entire arsenal" is a shitload, anon. Just a few tags on a log will create the opening Sasuke needs.Assuming he hasn't been ganked by one of the masked hairballs.
how are the others doing? any more hearts down in the meantime?Also prep a substitute covered in tags so when he grabs us we blow it and put a Lance though his heart
>>42855245Nah, it was pretty clear in canon that he and Hidan had been putting up with each other's shit WAY longer than three years.
>>42855070"I see Orochimaru is keeping things to himself again. Why do you lot trust that snake?"
>>42855272If we prepped a Lance I'd prefer to attack one of the masks again, since Sasuke's almost certainly aiming for the "main" heart. That would mean Kakuzu would be down his Earth, Fire, and one other, and we could re-concentrate our remaining teammates again.
>>42855288Was it? All I remember were the comments about how Kakuzu hated having to put up with Hidan and not just kill him like he did all his previous partners. Guess I'm forgetting something, then.
>>42855295To be fair, Sasori probably also knows about our release after waiting for us to finish off Gaara.
>>42855319I'm not remotely trying to be fair. I'm trying to mess with his head.
>>42855312Cos I was thinking if we drop the main body we can just blast it, the hearts gotta go to it or they'd die. we would be effectively camping the capture point. with an Impact powered Shotgun
>>42855238Kon has no fire techniques, and the technique that makes up the tendrils is earth-based. So probably not.I'd also assume setting it on fire was among the first things Sasuke tried.
>>42855070>B.Attack the armsWhen he attacks us, let's Feedback the impact to his arms.
>>42855381Lets not let him touch us.
>>42855363That could actually be kind of funny.>That hurt, Uchiha. Luckily I can...>SNIPED>Spawn-camping son of a who...>DOUBLE KILL>Why you little...>TRIPLE KILL
>>42855070>D. First you want an Uchiha's heart, now you want mine? That's pretty halfhearted of you!
>>42855108>>42855130>>42855137>>42855192You prepare a substitution to keep his arms occupied.Once they grab you, you're replaced in a puff of smoke by a log covered in explosive tags. The explosion goes off, forcing the man's arms to harden to resist the attack.While he's occupied, Sasuke has finished preparing. He run's at the man with his chidori and manages to catch him straight though his chest.You look around. Temari looks like she's getting tired, but she's still managing to keep the water and lightning masks busy.Kiba and Akamaru are carrying Kankuro around, as he's taken too many hits from the wind mask.Sasuke drops the masked man and comes over to you."Are these things still running around on their own?" he pants. "What should we do?"Before you can answer, the wind mask dives into the masked man's body. He convulses several times before he gets up, tendrils sticking out of his mouth and neck."Two of my hearts?" he says. "That hasn't happened in a long time. I guess I will have to take both of yours."You see the water and lightning mask creatures merge into one giant black mass. They start firing off combined attacks at Temari.Kiba and Akamaru have set Kankuro aside, and have joined you and Sasuke."You've got a plan for this, right?" he asks.>A.We'll team up on the main guy>B.Someone go help Temari>C.Other
>>42855404don't forget the teabag,
>>42855439>>A.We'll team up on the main guy
>>42855429>"Lots of people have trouble with my release, no need to get disheartened.">"I feel like you're getting stressed, maybe we should have a heart-to-heart.">"Oh, come on. I'm sure we'll all have a hearty chuckle about this later."
>>42855439>C. "Easy. We take out the main body's heart, one of the others takes its place. So..." Heavenly lance the main body's heart. Then again when the next heart drops into it.
>>42855439>>B.Someone go help TemariKibaUs and Sasuke Use a combo Wind+Fire Jutsu to burn the fuck out of him. Let him try to block that with wind chakra.
>>42855439>A.We'll team up on the main guy"It looks like every time we 'kill' this guy, one of his masks has to come back to his body. So we can just keep killing him until he stays dead, and that will deal with those two as well."
>>42855439>Someone go back up Temari.>Heavenly Lance him through the chest again.
>>42855471>>42855429Sai Best Ninja 2016
>>42855439>A.We'll team up on the main guy"Sasuke, let's repeat the Snow mission. Kiba, wait for an opening."Point being if we kill Kakuzu again he has to pull another heart out of the one fighting Temari, taking pressure off her. And this time we'll be ready when he does.
>>42855439>C.Other"Every time we kill him he has to sacrifice one of his creatures to regenerate. I'll move to back Temari up, if you can take him out one more time the two of us should be able to keep the creatures from getting to him."
>>42855484With this while the fireball is going for him throw a Heavenly lance in there to.How are our Chakra levels looking
Soon, we need to leave with some fast people to catch up. Should Kiba lead the pursuit?
>>42855553Doesn't seem like we're feeling tired yet. Normally if that were a problem I'd expect an obvious warning.
>>42855553I just wanna imagine that beam swirling with the inferno we make around it, Combo Move: Ame-no-nuboko
>>42855439Curious question but...Could we use our snowboard as a shield? Charge it up and deflect attacks and hit him with the sword?
>>42855581>Should Kiba lead the pursuitHe's our tracker, since Shino's MIA at the moment.
>>42855598Pretty sure that name is already taken, actually.>>42855615Why would we have our snowboard in a desert?
>>42855615We already gave it away. Although, I imagine it could move pretty quickly with Impact release.
>>42855439>>B.Someone go help TemariKiba.Us and Sasuke can keep fighting best Akatsuki.
>>42855647That's not Itachi
the longer we stay here fighting the further away his partner and Fuu are going to get,
So we're definitely getting promoted after this, possibly to Tokubetsu Jonin. Neji got a similar promotion, and he wasn't even fighting Akatsuki.
>>42855673Reverse summoning? Would that work?
>>42855673Last thread it was pretty much stated outright that we'd have to rely on Shino heavily if we wanted to get Fuu back. We couldn't really have come into this expecting a chance to disengage from Kakuzu without catastrophic losses.
>>42855695She would have had to have been marked beforehand by someone who knew the technique. Meaning Tenten. Tenten is and has been busy, and I doubt Kakuzu would have given her a chance.Really, I'm just confused about where everyone else is. They better be chasing the next guy.
>>42855671Don't be silly. Itachi isn't in Akatsuki.He was a dozy shit in canon. Gato was a more compelling villain than him. Fucking Gato.
>>42855757Or IS he?>bam, entire quest spoiled>Laze resigns as QM due to his damaged ego>have to settle for Boruto Quest or Dragon Ball Z Quests
>>42855731Kiba probably knows it.
>>42855484>>42855507>>42855553>>42855647"Kiba, go help Temari!" you call. "Sasuke, let's do a combination jutsu!"Kiba and Akamaru head off, while you and Sasuke perform your jutsu. The masked man rushes the two of you while you do so."Fire Release: Fireball!""Wind Release: Vacuum Wave!"You and Sasuke's combined jutsu hits home, but before it does, some of the man's tendrils grab Sasuke by his leg. He drags Sasuke into the path of the jutsu with him.You stop your jutsu, and prepare another one. The man is tossing Sasuke around with his tendrils, but you have an opening to hit his heart."Impact Release: Heavenly Lance!"The beam strikes the man right through his heart. He collapses again. Before you can prepare to react to another mask, a burst of lightning heads for Sasuke, who is now unconscious. You are forced to get him out of its path. In that time, the water mask has returned to the masked man's body and he has gotten up again."Three? You're trying my patience with that beam attack." the mans states. "I won't be taking my eyes off you anymore. You won't get another chance."You look over to see that Temari is down. She seems to have been hit by one of the combined attacks. Kiba and Akamaru have moved her away, but they aren't looking too hot themselves.You're feeling the strain on your chakra as well, but you can fight on.The man closes in on you.>A.Explosives>B.Pull weapon>C.Use a jutsu>D.Go try and help Kiba take out the last mask>E.Other
>>42855893>A.ExplosivesAll of them. Airbursting kunai, exploding Substitutes. Everything explodes forever.
>>42855893>A.ExplosivesWhen in doubt, blow your problems the fuck up
>>42855893>A. "Hey, I can do other things too."
>>42855926Also, mix in flash bombs. That's what he gets for keeping his eyes on us.
>>42855893Can we turn shurikens into logs?
>>42855893time for mass traps, preserve our chakra, now he is utterly focused on us I doubt we can help the others, its 1v1 now. Unless kankaro can jump the other mask with the "lock inside and slice" puppetUse an impact boosted explosive replacement ready, upon combat blow it and stab him though the back with Lightning, leave an explosive tag in the chest cavity.
>>42855893Bonus points if we can use the explosives to maneuver him into the water used by his own mask.
>>42855994Or kunai into logs. Getting hit with a log hurts like crap, man.
>>42855893>>42855926Unlimited Explosives Works, mothafucka!
>>42856062If he can protect himself from explosives, how would a log be any better? In fact I'm hoping the explosives will just keep him busy long enough for help to arrive, or else for him to make a mistake like walking over his own water or something.Fuu is pretty much the last thing on my mind at this point, by the way.
I wonder if Impact Clones can be a thing.Combine them with tags and we have our kamikaze technique.
>>42855893>>A.ExplosivesThis is expensive, but your Bounty makes it worth the money.
>>42856184What about explosive logs? Or the monkey?
>>42856241Take away all his senses only when we get out of range.Wish we had a healer...
>>42855926You unload all the explosives you can onto the masked man. He resists your barrage with a combination of well timed Water jutsus, and hardens any skin that you do manage to hit. After a while, it becomes clear that the explosives will not work, but in this time, he's surrounded himself with water.You take advantage of this fact. "Lightning Release: Thunderbolt!"The move is amplified by the surrounding water, and shocks the man with even greater power than otherwise.The man collapses again, and you get ready to take out the last heart, when you notice that his tendrils have been extended. As soon as the last mask flies to his body, they tighten. They've coiled around the necks of Sasuke and Kiba, who by this point had also fallen."You lot may have taken four of my hearts, but I'm a shrewd businessman." the man addresses you. "I can always go get more somewhere else. So, I'm willing to make you a deal. I can let you all go, and we'll go our separate ways, or you can try to kill me before I kill these two friends of yours. That's if you can at all, of course. There's no guarantee. But if we stop right now, you will get to keep all your friends alive."His tendrils tighten their grip around your friend's necks. "So what's it gonna be?"You could try and take him out right now, but you're low on chakra. You might only get one shot. There's also no telling if he could kill the others before you can kill him.>A.Fine>B.Attack him>C.Try to separate him from Sasuke and Kiba>D.Other

>>42856298>D. My teammates resolved themselves for an outcome like this. You're the only one who isn't prepared to die.
>>42856298>D. "Not good enough. I need information, to balance out the time wasted. Where is your partner taking the Jinchuuriki?"
>B.Attack himMission comes first
>>42856333if we let him go there's no guarantee he wont backstab us, he can't be trusted. I say we risk it
>>42856365Shikamaru is back at the Leaf villageHe was never here
>>42856298>D.OtherAgree, then kill him once he lets them go. Naruto's the one to never go back on his word.
>>42856298>B.Attack himI suppose this makes us worse than garbage but fuck kakashi's ideals
>>42856298>D. Say nothing for a bit, try to stall him. Quietly build up chakra in your feet, prep it to quickly turn to impact for a sudden burst of speed.
>>42856298>>D. Fine (Lie).Then>>B.Attack himAfter all, I'm pretty sure he's lying too.
>>42856298Ok all he has is one heart left, both his hands are around the necks of the others so in theory hand signs are out, however he does have a human shield... can w put need back into use on them? If so we charge him, burst feed back into them so they are repelled from his body by his own strength and we bunch through his last heart, with an explosives taged and chakra charged kunai, he blows up and we use what chakra is left to create our shield to save ourselves damage.if not this discuss
>>42856298>D.Other"Shrew businessman is right. Two lives for one doesn't seem fair. How about you or l put them down and we settle this like men. QuickDraw style?"Then while he's trying to figure out what we mean we shoot him
>>42856397Wait, what? I thought he came with us to the Sand village for the exam.
He has info on how we fight, we can't let him leave
>>42856298>D.Play for time"And trust you at your word? Sorry, but I need more than that to go on.""You're the businessman here. Come up with a way to do this transaction that I can trust, and I'll consider it."
>>42856298Lie about saying yes then>>42856419
>>42856421Ah, the Tymoshenko Feint, I like your style!
>>42856436Or we stab his final heart with a Impact Knife on a Rope.Pull him in and cut his head off for good measure.
>>42856419If we end up attacking, which it seems like we're going to at this rate, can we PLEASE at least do this? It has a slight chance of actually working.Finishing with a lightning-empowered sword would cut through any defensive measures he could raise, so there's a decent chance it could be quick enough to get the job done.
>>42856491Ok id love us to pull this off but I doubt we can though that would be an awesome thing.
>>42856298>>B.Attack himShino's alone out there. If we let Kakuzu go, i can guess who the first heart will belong to.
Just had a thought. Sasuke's got lightning nature. Does that give him lightning resistance? Could we zap him to make Rocky here let go? Or is that too risky?
>>42856522If we dod attack i agree with this guy, lightning support it...though his last heart if lightning so hmmmm....His head is worth to much, we hunter nin now
>>42856550Wouldn't help Kiba.
Pump our feedback into our teammates the strength of his own grip would blow them out of his hands, while he is QQ we strike the heart
>>42856560>we hunter nin nowEh, we're already resolved to become a babysitter>>42856577Lightning can restart hearts
>>42856298>D. "Counteroffer. Leave them be and I'll take you prisoner. It'll give your comrades a chance to bust you out, and you won't die in the meantime. Tortured a little, maybe, but not killed."
Guys, what if we put all our Impact chakra into one fist, then punched the ground to launch ourselves toward him, and punched through Kakuzu?
>>42856560Doesn't really matter. Lightning is best at piercing, and his defense is an Earth technique. He'd be unable to set up a proper defense against it.At this point attacking means we'd possibly defeat an enemy that could be incredibly dangerous to the village later, and to our surviving teammates in the short term, all because we trusted the word of an Akatsuki. It just kind of doesn't make sense IC to do anything but an all-in assault in hopes that 4 speed and an Impact "Wavedash" are also fast enough to save our friends in the process.
>>42856322>>42856333>>42856347>>42856384>>42856409>>42856541You build up chakra for your attack."Well?" the man asks. "I'm waiting."You fire your jutsu as fast as you can."Impact Release: Heavenly Lance!"Your beam flies towards the man, but before it hits, he moves Kiba into its path. The beam pierces through Kiba and hits the masked man, but doesn't kill him."You were really gonna do it, huh kid?" the man laughs as he tosses Kiba aside. "You've got guts. I like it."The man throws Sasuke at you and forces you to catch him before talking again. "I'm needed urgently elsewhere. If you want to follow me, go ahead. You'll be marching to your death. If I were you, I'd worry more about your buddies here."The man takes off running. You could follow, but you're already pretty tired. It might take a while to catch him.>A.Pursue>B.Check on the others>C.Other
>>42856633Less efficient than building it up in our already fast-as-fuck feet and dashing. Also commits a hand AND both feet to charging when both hands should be behind a lightning-enhanced sword thrust to the heart.
>>42856677>>B.Check on the others
>>42856677>B. Immediately go help Kiba, make sure you didn't pierce anything vital.
>>42856643Ok I agree pour some chakra into our feet in the for of feed back, if physics holds about opersite and equal force we will launch at double speed from the power of our own impact, it will be a one shot dash but the speed would be utter insanity.
>>42856677>>B.Check on the othersWe're going to get shit for our choice, but oh well
>>42856409Actually, taking him at his word would be abandoning them because there's no way he's telling the truth. We drop our stance, he eats them before we can react and they die. We attack him, we at least have a chance of saving them.
>>42856739Yeah, no. That apparently wasn't allowed anyway.
>>42856677>>A.PursueFuck.Go after him now or all this was for nothing. We have no medical training. We can do more good on the 'kill this guy now before he does any more damage' front.
>>42856677>C. Summon a monkey to go harass him
>>42856677Check Kiba ain't to badly injured, slap sasuke awake and chase that fucker, Shino is still out there! if we can't get a response we have no choice but to stay. We need help or this aint gonna happen
>>42856677Crap, we know Kiba's in trouble, but if we don't follow him this guy could go after Shino...Hmmm...>C. Wake up Sasuke, get his help with Kiba, then go pursue the man.
>>42856677>C.OtherShoot him in the back before we lose sight of him. Otherwise we shot Kiba for nothing.Should be easier at longer range, since his apparent velocity is lower.
>>42856780I agree with this.Maybe summon a monkey to get help for our teammates or something
Can scrolls preserve a body?
>>42856744And what choice would that be? I don't recall us making any choice to shoot. What about you, Sasuke? Kiba? Tenten? Oh, that's right, you're all unconscious. Well, then, guess no one will object to our story that Kiba's injury was inflicted by Kakuzu.
Hm.In retrospect maybe challenging him a one on one, winner takes all hearts duel would have helped...
>>42856814Actually, I like this better. Heavenly Lance is our sniper move. Changing from this >>42856811but we should still do that if we miss, even if this next shot does take up what little chakra we have left... assuming that previous one didn't already.
>>42856826don't worry about that, just say he used a stretchy arm and held Kiba in the way.
>>42856814>>42856815We're out of chakra anons. Tank is empty.
>>42856849Maybe having gone with the attack option that didn't require hand seals, as had been suggested several times, would have helped.But I doubt it. I get the feeling something bad would have happened regardless of what we chose.
>>42856849It's fine...>Kiba's got a hole in his chest!>Eh...it's fineee...
>>42856863>you're getting pretty tiredThat's not out of chakra yet. We're still conscious.
I think it's time we show our utterly distorted and unstoppable drive to keep fighting until there is nothing left, he has no shields left and is on the move, he is no sensor if we can line up behind him use our last once of chakra to shoot him though the back hope summoned monkey gets help.
>>42856862It's technically true. We can just say "I was going to shoot him, but he grabbed Kiba with an extended arm and then blocked the shot with him". That is completely factually accurate, we're just leaving one tiny detail out. Lies by omission are the best lies.
>>42856891Relax, we just need to get him a heart.
>>42856923That would just make Kiba feel bad for getting in our way. We should tell him the truth that we wouldn't let him get in the way of the mission he fought for.
>>42856826Objection!The wound is clearly our jutsu! We literally carved our signature into him.>>42856816Reverse summon ourselves to monkey land. Ask them for a healer.Oh wait. Monkeys and dogs have a weird rivalry...
>>42856923Why would we even lie? We could just say "he'd have killed them anyway, because he was Akatsuki and they're all like that".And it would be true. It was either take a risk or put our trust in an S-Rank criminal who had repeatedly threatened to eat our teammates' hearts. That's not really a choice.
>>42856677>A.PursueSoldier pill and chase him
>>42856677>A.PursueIt's what our teammates would want us to do. We can't get soft now!
>>42856978Those don't do anything by QM fiat.
>>42856978He actually said we're taking those in between fights to go on longer
>>42856677>A.PursueNo. I'm sick of villains getting away. We haven't succeeded in a single plot-significant mission yet. One way or another, the Akatsuki is taking a loss today.>>42856993It's less "don't do anything" and more "you're taking them anyway, telling me you're eating them won't make you recover any faster".
>>42856694>>42856700>>42856728>>42856744You consider sniping him from here, but you may not hit him. Even if you did, if you passed out here, there would be no one to help your teammates.You check on them. Everyone except Kiba is unconscious, but they don't seem to have any lasting damage. Kiba has a hole though his torso. Luckily it didn't hit his heart or lungs, but he's bleeding out something fierce. You apply basic treatment immediately to stop the bleeding as best you can. He still needs real treatment, so he has to get help.>A.Take him back>B.Summon a monkey to go for help>C.Other

>>42857127>>42857154We get it, you're fucking salty. You can lay off now.
chase Kakuzu, Shino is out there alone, once monkey is summoned say how urget this is he should be pretty damned fast.Something tells me this is a set up we loose Shino or Kiba...thats a dick move if so.
>>42857154>Abandoning our comrades after we swore an oath to the Third Hokage as he died in our arms.What kind of shitcunt are you?
>>42857194We made an oath that we would carry on the will of the fallen. Also, we said we would protect the Jinchuuriki.
>>42857182Like I said, something bad was probably going to happen regardless of what we chose.We're still in the "shaped by events" phase, apparently (a polite way of saying on the rails).
>>42857194The kind that knows how to prioritize. We swore to protect the village. The Akatsuki getting their hands on another Tailed Beast will cause it a million times the suffering that Kiba's death will. We've already decided that the potential death of our team is acceptable, we made that decision when we shot at Kakuzu instead of agreeing to his terms. And now you want to back out that you've been confronted with the consequences first hand? What kind of shitcunt are you?
>>42857250We're not going to get Fuu back, anon, barring some Shino-related miracle. We were always bound to lose strategically, it's just a matter of who survived.The sooner you accept this fact, the better.

You wouldn't make it far.You do what you can to treat the others until help arrives. It eventually does, and the others are taken by medical ninjas to get treated.Tenten is here as well."We should be able to keep Kiba alive, we got here in time." she says.

>>42857310>C.Shino is still out there>D. He might be chasing him that guy, send like 20 guys to back him up and track that guy down. If we don't have 20 guys, send as many as we can
>>42857300Fine, so we won't save Fuu. But we can still kill Kakuzu. Then we'd at least cost the Akatsuki something instead of just handing them victory after victory. >>42857302>Our teammates knew they'd be risking death, we can't let that jeopardize the mission>Oh no, our teammates could die, we need to abandon the mission to save themMake up your fucking mind.
So, if Fuu lives, who wants to try to hook her up with Shino?Bugman needs some love too, you know.
>>42857310Engage: Anger OverwelmingShino is still out there, either I see everyone get out of here or I give them hell before dragging them there with me.We need to track that guy, find him, kill him before he gets his partner to cover him, he has 1 heart, we injured him and now we have a grudge.
>>42857362Would that be safe? Fodder sent out purely for numbers might just give Kakuzu more hearts back.
>>42857250>>42857240We are barely standing, and the ONLY one concious in our group. If we try and press the fight against kakuzu, there is good odds of him just wasting us, and then coming back and finishing off ALL of our downed comrades. Then, not only does Akatsuki get a new Jinchuuriki, Kakuzu gets a whole bunch of new hearts, the Sand loses 2 of its up and coming Jonin, and the Leaf loses a whole squad of good ninjas.

>>42857407I think the idea is get him lined up and snipe him, in theory if Ten Ten is ahead of us she can teleport us to her for the shot, we then limp him, Shino is coming home alive we will not be responsible for him being killed.
>>42857407>>42857417Bullshit. Even right now people are still voting to go back into the field. There isn't a single god damn "You're right, I am too tired to keep going" vote.

>>42857770>>42857749>>42857606Actually we're 1.0 away from getting jutsus without needing seals
We need to recharge, and this chick can tag us in over to her location in a few minutes.
>>42857792But anonAre we really breathing?Cuz i don't think we're doing it right.
>>42857554>>42857583>>42857585>>42857603>>42857638>>42857641>>42857663"I'm going." you insist."Fine then." Tenten responds. "I'll look after you once you pass out."The two of you take off in the direction the masked man went, but it's only a few hours before you indeed do pass out.When you wake up, the two of you continue your search. You have found yourself in the Land of Rivers, the Akatsuki may have some kind of base here.On the third day of your search, the two of you are approached by a figure. It's Shino. He looks exhausted, but unharmed. He's carrying something on his back, but it's covered in his beetles.>A.Shino, you're okay!>B.What happened?>C.Did you run into the Akatsuki?>D.What's that?>E.Other
>all these samefags hitting A
I'm convinced it's not possible for this many people to be stupid enough to press. We can have Tenten reverse-summon us, why would we NOT take a moment to build our strength back from "barely standing" to "useful in a fight"?Makes no damn sense.
>>42857839>A.Shino, you're okay!>B.What happened?You REALLY need to have a FD protocol Laze.
>>42857839>A.Shino, you're okay!>B.What happened?>C.Did you run into the Akatsuki?>D.What's that?
>>42857839>>A.Shino, you're okay!>D.What's that?Shino is alive and unharmed? What a badass
>>42857850Because people are really dumb sometimes
>>42857839>A. Shino, you're okay!>B. What happened?

>>42857839>>A.Shino, you're okay!>>B.What happened?>>C.Did you run into the Akatsuki?I sense that we may have screwed up.
>>42857839>Fuu dies anyway"We're not on rails" they said. "We need to conserve chakra for the next fight" they said. "We can totally win this fight" they said. "We can keep pushing with no consequences" they said.
>>42857839>but it's only a few hours before you indeed do pass out.>When you wake up, the two of you continue your search.Why didn't you include the reverse summoning plan? Like, fuck
>>42857801Technically we're 1.0 away from the prerequisites to LEARN that.But yeah, we need to do it so we can Quickdraw Lance mother fuckers.If we can figure out some way to boost our supply of chakra to batshit crazy levels we could go all John Woo and fingerbang everything in sight.>>42857839>A.Shino, you're okay!>>42857916That's the point, anon.We're trying to troll a UC fanboy.As a UC fanboy I can attest that this would be a VERY effective way to piss me off.
>>42857928... you think?But no, seriously, we had no chance to begin with.
Shino are you OK did you run into the Akatski, what happened man...whats that, please tell me thats whats left of that fucker
You know what the worst part of that fight was? We could've potentially killed Kakuzu if we'd focused on improving our offense instead of our defense which we didn't even use. I also voted for defense, but them regrets now.
>>42857583>>42857585>>42857603>>42857638>>42857663You guys are fucking retards.
>>42857839>A.Shino, you're okay!
>>42857958No, we improved our offense.
>>42857934>Why didn't you include the reverse summoning plan?We're not allowed to succeed yet. Anons being retards just gives Laze an excuse.
>>42857932Unless that's Fuu on his back. I hope it's Fuu. Alternatively, Hidan, too eaten away by beetles to move. I would accept losing Fuu if it meant they lost Hidan.
>>42857932>"We're not on rails" they said.We're facing down a guy who eats high level Jonin for lunch, we're lucky to have hurt him at all.>"We need to conserve chakra for the next fight" they said.WE PASSED OUT>"We can totally win this fight" they said. "We can keep pushing with no consequences" they said.Idiots the lot of them.>>42857988Oh fuck off, anons were dumb and it bit us in the ass.
>>42857984Anon, improving our defense through chakra shaping won. We got a barrier that's too chakra-intensive to use in a prolonged fight and a better version of Feedback with the same problem as the barrier.
>>42857958Actually, you know the real reason we lost? It's because we used precise piercing attacks instead of big wide-area ones. Piercing attacks can't damage his cloak enough to make him remove it. Akatsuki never die until you remove the cloak. We need to prioritize that, make some sort of clothing-shredder jutsu.
>>42858016We AkibaStrip now?
>>42858016makes sense, Shino probably just got his bugs to eat whichever Akatsuki member's cloak he ran into, insta win right there.
>>42857932>Expecting a victory against motherfucking Kakuzu>Who rapes high level Jounin and is general hard to kill prick>Said prick also stomped Kakashi's shit inAre you retarded?We're lucky we got out alive
>>42857990Anon, if it's Fuu covered in beetles, what do you think the odds are that Shino alone managed to keep her alive?>>42858004It was an encounter we were clearly not meant to win. I will give you passing out being the result of stupidity, but I doubt it would have changed the ultimate result.Speaking of things I'm apparently not allowed to do, fucking Captcha is doing my nut.
>>42858048The beetles aren't eating Fuu. They're eating Chomei's chakra.
>>42858037I'm not arguing that we should have won, I'm merely pointing out that nothing we did would have allowed us to win.Saving Fuu was not an achievable objective for Kon.
>>42858062Or they're carrying her corpse because Shino's strength is pretty mediocre.
>>42858037>>42858037I think its more amazing we basically took no damage rather we ran outta chakra, what do you think is with all thee haters though? i'm having fun, also now we have an Akatski rival, we will inevitably fight again and know one another better, good story and fun.
>>42858048>Anon, if it's Fuu covered in beetles, what do you think the odds are that Shino alone managed to keep her alive?Pretty good. He could have defeated Hidan and then managed to run and hide from a Kakuzu too tired from our fight to keep up with him. And then we managed to find him and Kakuzu didn't because we had the tracer bug he left. Makes perfect sense.
>>42858070Exacly.The plan was get Kakuzu's attention and give Shino(the who was on Hidan's trail) time to get to Hidan and rescue Fuu.That was the plan from the very begining
Press it:>>42857781>>42857774>>42857695>>42857663>>42857802>>42857638>>42857603>>42857585>>42857583>>42857554Retardery:>>42857641Relent:>>42857573>>42857574>>42857578>>42857598>>42857606>>42857624>>42857627>>42857706A Popular Write-in:>>42857569>>42857574>>42857598>>42857607>>42857612>>42857624>>42857627>>42857694So why didn't a popular write-in's strategy make it in?
>>42858086I'm willing to accept a dead Fuu. A dead Fuu is a Fuu they can't extract Chomei out of. He's going to be unavailable for them to capture for another couple of years. At least it buys us some time.

"I've been feeding my beetles with my chakra so they'd preserve the tailed beast's for her.""What are you talking about, Shino?" Tenten asks."I followed the Akatsuki member that took Fuu, and had my bugs drain her chakra as we went." Shino explains. "I heard them talking about the Jinchuuriki dying if their tailed beast is extracted, and I just decided to try this on a hunch. I certainly didn't think I had what it took to face an Akatsuki member alone, so I stayed in hiding. They took her to a cave where they performed the extraction over the past couple of days. When they left, I had my beetles try and give her back the chakra that they took. I think we can keep her alive if we get her treatment soon.">A.What about the Akatsuki members?>B.So they still got the tailed beast?>C.Good work, Shino>D.Other
>>42858103If she's alive we're totally claiming at least partial credit. There's no way personally destroying three of Kakuzu's hearts, helping with the fourth, and further shooting him in the chest didn't help.If Fuu died though, not our fault.
>>42858117Because you can't count and therefore don't see that the write-in was less popular than the winning option?
>>42858122>C.Good work, Shino
>>42858119i'm not massively familiar with the naruto universe, what exactly happens to the beast if the host dies?
>>42858122>C. Good Work, Shino.>B. So they still got the Tailed Beast?
>>42858122Motherfucking Shino probably the most useful character in this questThe motherfucking batman of bugs>C.Good work, Shino
>>42858122>C.Good work, Shino>B.So they still got the tailed beast?Seriously tho 3.5 intShino is quite clever
>>42858122>D.Other"Let's get you both to safety, we'll debrief later.""Good work."
>>42858122>B.So they still got the tailed beast?>D.Other"You had one job, Shino. If you were able to drain her chakra enough for this you were able to drain enough to kill her. And then they wouldn't be able to extract it at all."
>>42858122>C.Good work, Shino>D.Otherget them both back home, send someone to investigate the cave later on, it might or might not be some sort of base and we cant risk fighting a whole base full of people right nowunless we have more people than just us and Tenten. did we bring any other Jonin with us?
>>42858122>C. + D.Great job. I'm glad your ok. Get some rest but don't drop your guard.
>>42858122>C.Good work, Shino>>42858166Fuck off, cunt.
>>42858122>>B.So they still got the tailed beast?Fuck it, she's alive>C.Good work, Shino
>>42858140The chakra it's made of disperses over a wide area and takes years to reform back into a demon.
>>42858166Cool your shit, fuckface. We still don't REALLY know what they did to her, or what Shino did.It sounds like they extracted the tailed beast, but all of its chakra is still in Fuu.
>>42858122>>C.Good work, Shino>A.What about the Akatsuki members?Damn, really, good work man.
>>42858122>>D. Wait, days? Shit, how long was I out for? >>C. Good work, Shino.>>D. Is Kiba okay?
>>42858166I hate to say it but he really should have done this earlier. Being a ninja isn't about saving one person. It's about saving as many as possible.
>>42858122>>42858122Get her help NOW! all haste home, she is our Garra for part 2 we need her, whisper to her her friends are here and we are going to help her. Good work Shino. On the way back ask he managed to leave any tracking bugs on them and if he bumped into Kakuzu.Priority is save her, she may have infomation.
>>42858122>>C.Good work, ShinoThis beautiful genius. Shino is beyond a boss.
>>42858217Sorry Kiba, but Shino is the best tracker ever. Actually, sorry Sasuke, Shino is a better ass-kicker than you. Holy shit, Shino is a total boss. Shino is Big Boss.
>>42858316He's what would have happened if Naked Snake was trained by The Pain instead of by The Joy.
>>42858316Shino should definitely get Chunin after this he is a baws.
I hope Shino and Fu start making Eggs

"So they still got the tailed beast?""I'm afraid so." Shino replies. "But perhaps we can have the cave staked out. It may prove valuable.""We'll have it done." Tenten tells him. "For now, let's head back. We need to see what we can do for Fuu."The three of you return to the Sand and give Fuu over to the medical ninja. Apparently the chakra Shino took is what allowed her to survive.When she wakes up, you ask what happened. Apparently the two Akatsuki attacked when her team was weakened from the exam."I guess he really was my friend after all." Fuu says, uncharacteristically down. "He gave those bugs his chakra so I could live. I guess I did get lucky, huh Chomei?"In light of the events, the third round of the exam is cancelled. All nine of the ninja that passed the second round where allowed to receive promotions.After everyone has recovered, you all head back to the Leaf village. The Hokage is very anxious to hear your story.>End of Chapter 29Next thread is SundayTwitter is @LazeQM
>>42858419>"I guess he really was my friend after all." Fuu says, uncharacteristically down. "He gave those bugs his chakra so I could live. I guess I did get lucky, huh Chomei?"Oh my
>>42858343While we obviously took a few tips from The End. And Sasuke from The Fury.Heh. Crazy spaceman loved fire.>>42858419Good thread, Laze.Even if we did fuck up once or twice. Or thrice. Or... damn we suck. And only occasionally in the fun way.
>>42858419Thanks for running
>>42858419Thanks for running Laze.Fuu's still alive, i'm so happy
>>42858419Any gains in this thread Laze?
>>42858419I do hope we're at least going to get the chance to talk to Fuu now that we can actually be her friend.Also, how will Kon's decisions and relative success be viewed when he gives his report? Because trusting an Akatsuki was absolutely NOT an option, so it'd suck if he got nailed for that.
>>42858456Kon = The EndSasuke = The FuryShino = The PainKiba, you have two choices: Joy or Fear. TenTen, Kankuro, Fuu or Temari, you can fight to be the last member of our squad.
>>42858419So, Shino confirmed for a fuckup. A badass fuckup, but still a fuckup. Well, at least he's in good company with the rest of the team. God, we suck.
>>42858501>We held off a guy who can fuck up Kakashi and gave Shino time to rescue Fuu>We suckOkay then
>>42858526And yet we still consistently fail at our objectives. The fact that we do cool things along the way does not negate that.
>>42858489Most of your stats are getting pretty high, so gains on them will slow down without explicitly training themAnd you didn't really do much to help your low statsSo noNot this thread
>>42858501Yeah, I'd be curious to know what Jiraiya thought we could actually have hoped to do in that scenario. Because it's not like you could reasonably expect better than what happened.Other than pursuing until we passed out, which honestly seems like a result of QM rigidity more than anything else in light of how many "rest and get summoned" votes apparently were counted separately from "rest".
thanks for the tread Laze. That was a pretty intense battle, amazing no one died! but anyways GG Chromei. We need to train up new techniques, multiple piecing shots and the like. Whatever the case lts hope Fu and Shino can pair up, they are nice together maybe they can start a hive together or a swarm.
>>42858419>All nine of the ninja that passed the second round where allowed to receive promotionsdoes that include Sasuke Kiba and Shino?
>>42858494Jiraiya's not going to fault you for tryingHe'd be hard pressed to trust an Akatsuki either
>>42858545Our objective was to get Kakuzu's attention so Shino would get a better chance of rescuing FuuI'd say that was a success
>>42858595No, it was a Sand team, Team Asuma and Team Guy
So right now in the timeline we are what like 1/3 way through the timeskip?
>>42858495Kiba kinda fits the fear. He moves oddly when he goes beasty.What about The Sorrow?
>>42858628At least Haku got promoted
>>42858642Around there, yes
>>42858628WaitDoes the chunnin exam happens in the same day each year?Cuz if it does then we'd be 14 now
>>42858654How much trouble is Taki in right now?
Will we get a chance to do a training montage with Monkey King if we asked Laze?
>>42858654Can Sasuke do the Chakra matching thing he did in canon to allow psuedo Kekkie Genkai?
>>42858667You'll be turning 14 in a couple of weeks>>42858676They're panickedLuckily for them, the Leaf is willing to be their sworn ally
>>42858628man, that's pretty bullshit. I mean, I'm not asking you to change it, but that's bullshit
>>42858646The Sorrow? Hmmm... Fuu seemed pretty sad. There's also Haku. I wonder if he's still sad about Zabuza. What about The Joy? (Of course, in THIS Cobra Unit, The End becomes The Boss, not The Joy.)
>>42858607No, our objective was to prevent Akatsuki from acquiring any more Tailed Beasts. Which we failed at. Fuu being alive is nice, but it doesn't really matter much. I guess it might make things a bit easier in the end game, since Gaara and Fuu have swapped places as "jinchuriki who survives with powers but reduced stamina" and "jinchuriki that gets corpse-puppeted by Obito. But it's not like Kon knows that. As far as he's concerned, he failed.
So we led a fight against an Akatsuki that had once tried to assassinate Hashirama Senju, and personally 'killed' him three times before forcing a technical draw. How much cred does this gain us, on a scale of 1 to "mad"?And how frustrated/surprised was Tenten that we decided (at the behest of a bunch of retards) that we'd rather push ourselves to unconsciousness than rest?And how upset was Kiba when he found out we accidentally shot him, or how upset will he be?
>>42858602So when we get back can we tell him that we've changed our answer from "protect the jinchuriki" to "go after Akatsuki"?
>>42858667Chunin exams are held every 6 months in canon
>>42858701You can askHe might let you if you can convince him, but it's more likely that he'll make you wait>>42858704I don't remember that>>42858712I mean, they didn't finish the second examThey're kind of mad, but they'll get over it>>42858739FuriousShe was kind of irritated, but she wasn't going to stop you if you really wanted to goHe'll be pissed enough to make sure you never give him shit about Haku again
>>42858776You could if you wanted>>42858781This one had a year in between due to reasons
>>42858802>Oh fuck we lost Haku mocking rightsNow I'm just sad
>>42858802>I don't remember thatIt was during the fight against the Ten Tails, Sasuke synchronized an Amaterasu arrow with a Rasenshuriken to make a "Scorch Release" attack.
>>42858419So, are we going to admit that we made what could be considered mistakes?
>>42858838>You could if you wantedGood. Let's be proactive instead of reactive.
>>42858863Like not going after Kakuzu immediately, and instead wasting chakra on summoning a monkey?
>>42858802>I don't remember thatThat how he an Naruto did the Scorch Release: Halo Hurricane Jet Black Arrow Style Zero combination technique. I kinda want to do that, but have him match our wind/lighting Impact chakra so its 1/3rd wind/lighting/fire for massive destruction.
So where exactly was Hidan/Kakuzu's partner during this whole ordeal?
>>42858885Or endangering our teammates.
>>42858802>He'll be pissed enough to make sure you never give him shit about Haku againBalls.But we earned the loss.
>>42858863Sure, we made one tough decision in choosing not to trust Kakuzu at his word that can't be considered right or wrong, and we pushed on despite it being a far smarter idea to rest. Nothing came of the latter, but it temporarily made us a burden to our team.Both of these can be directly attributed to having been the last man standing in a fight against a guy who LITERALLY eats other members of Akatsuki for making him mad, and who threatened us with the same treatment multiple times over our kekkei genkai.Anyone who seriously held that against a thirteen year old would have to lack all sense of perspective.
>>42858927Well, that was a bad idea, but it wasn't a mistake as such. The mistake was not following through. If you're going to decide to risk your teammates' lives to complete the mission, don't pussy out after they've been hurt. Finish the job.
>>42858849You mean that wasn't some sharinnegan bullshit? That sounds kind of OP, I'm not sure I'd be on board with that>>42858863The fight went about as well as it could have, everyone was completely outclassed and you got big hits in where you couldIf you had pursued Kakuzu immediately, you would have caught up to him in time to meet Hidan. That would have been a whole new issue entirely>>42858867You know you haven't done either yetThis was actually a coincidence>>42858899Hidan was taking Fuu.
>>42858957>Said 13 year old was in charge of holding an exam that is very needed for the relations with other villages>Said 13 year old is also someone in a medium military rank
>>42858993I'd actually rather stick to protecting the Jinchuuriki and not pussyfoot around with our resolve, is that okay, Laze?
>>42858993>You mean that wasn't some sharinnegan bullshit? That sounds kind of OP, I'm not sure I'd be on board with thatNo, it was totally Sharingan bullshit. Just Sharingan bullshit that actually got explained instead of "fuck you, I'm a Uchiha". It was him using the chakra sensing and high precision that the Sharingan grants to integrate his technique into Naruto's.
>>42858993>You mean that wasn't some sharinnegan bullshit?http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Scorch_Release:_Halo_Hurricane_Jet_Black_Arrow_Style_ZeroLook under trivia.
>>42859007We were in charge of an exam, not fighting the sort of opponents that the village would have assigned an ANBU hit team to deal with had they known.This is absolutely not the sort of fight you expect a Chunin to take responsibility over.
>>42859021Maybe he could pull that off later, thenThat'd seriously be some endgame shit though
>>42859059>>42859061What the fuck was Anko doing?
>>42859020I'd actually rather accomplish something due to growing as a character and realizing that our resolve is worthless without action to support it. But you know, that's just me.
>>42859077She was the one who stayed behind to proctorYou could have had her go insteadThere's no telling what would have happened then, though
>>42859077Wrapping up the exams.She didn't know it was Akatsuki when we left any more than we did IC. Though it wasn't hard to figure out OOC.
>>42859089I'd rather git gud so we can effectively protect people from Akatsuki. Today's mission was unofficially a success in our book. Well, not the one we have to write FAILED in, but yeah.
>>42859111Kinda disappointing that all our neat ideas for random team battles just got canceled.
>>42859132That's Sunagakure, baby.
>>42859126The fight with Kakuzu wasn't even a part of the mission. The mission to handle the Exams was essentially cancelled the moment we walked into an ongoing Akatsuki battle.Where we immediately began wrecking shit FAR above our paygrade. Neji got promoted for one pinpoint strike to a tenketsu on a guy who wasn't even Akatsuki. We destroyed three of Kakuzu's hearts and set up Sasuke to hit a fourth.Even the people who were annoyed at us for the odd poor decision have to be fucking impressed at that.
>>42859217I guess that landed us into Jounin materialOr not considering our following choices
>>42859077Derping around at the exam because we wanted to go personally help our bros because we are the MC. I am of the opinion that having a special jounin go fight would have made more sense, but that one was decided before I found this thread.And besides, when does "making sense" have anything to do with decision making in a shonen?
>>42859217Who did Neji attack and when?
>>42859263Again, the only real choice we'd have to answer for was pushing on despite being exhausted. Which is easily accounted for IC due to extreme fatigue after a desperate battle for survival against a vastly superior opponent, and the "protect everyone complete mission" mentality taking over as our teammates got dropped one by one. In a setting where medics are explicitly trained not to stop doing their job until they're dead or the job is over, that sort of drive is to be expected.OOC it was a minority who voted for it, so it's not even "our choice". Many of those seemed not to understand basic facts about the situation when they cast their votes. I'm honestly a bit cheesed at that still.
>>42859285In canon it was some guy from the Sand who got drawn out by Gaara's attempt to use himself as bait for Akatsuki. He was trying to seal Gaara and Fuu, so Neji struck the tenketsu he was using to do the sealing to stop it.Neji was subsequently promoted straight to Jonin for assisting the Kazekage with a single love-tap. Akatsuki got Fuu as she was going home.Kon, meanwhile, took charge and turned around a battle in progress against an Akatsuki member. And very nearly won, too.
>>42859350Indeed that is true and we're allowed that kinda mistake since we just found ourselves against some random diehard S-Rank Akatsuki Agent and crippled him greatlyFor a chunnin that's pretty badass, but thanks to our choice of fainting like an idiot instead of just letting Tenten tag us and rest for a few hours before resuming kinda took a few points from the "Possible Cadidates for Jounin" score.
So Laze what are the chances of Kon being promoted to Jounin after pretty much ending 3 of Kakuzu's Continues?
>>42859431I don't know, we've got Jiraiya for Hokage for at least a little longer. Refusing to leave a man behind despite being exhausted would probably raise the score in his eyes enough to counteract the loss from pushing too far and collapsing like an idiot.
Kon Karagowa: The Heartbreak Sage.Has kind of a ring.
>>42859482You'll definitely be put in for consideration, but Jiraiya's going to leave the decision up to Itachi
>>42859431We can always blame that one on exhaustion, although we've historically shown an unhealthy willingness to push on despite our own flagging stamina. It's just that noone's been on hand to say, quite firmly 'No, you're in no shape to continue this.'
>>42859482>Three elements including a kekkei genkai>Decent enough at genjutsu to recognize and dispel it, but not really to use it>Took on Akatsuki and forced a drawDebatable. The genjutsu weakness is a serious limiting factor.
>>42859493Yeah but there's a variable that both Kon and Jiraya are awareTentenShe could tag Kon,letting him rest for a few minutes/hours so then he wouldn't collapse and would still be searching for Shino and Fuu while being capable of actual combatKon not suggesting that was stupid since that was pretty much his idea ever since the Hinata Rescue Arc IIRC
>>42859495No. Nobody wants to be part of the Konoha Screwjob.Except Danzo, if he's still alive. Seems like his schtick.
>>42859544Again, by and large people wanted some version of that. But the largest single vote was for retardation, and the QM went with that.Honestly, it shouldn't even have BEEN a vote.
>>42859495Kon Karagowa: Heartbreaker and Nametaker.
>>42859544On the other hand, he was also refusing to let Tenten go into hostile territory on her own. So again, it's kind of a washup. I imagine all of that put together is going to get Jiraiya and Itachi wondering if Kon might have some long term issues about losing people, tied to seeing Hiruzen die, and denying him promotion until he gets counseling.
>>42859594Honestly our intelligence is 2.5Tenten tagging us shouldn't even be a write in but a ready choice whenever she's with usWe should be smarter than this guys
>Sasuke gets taken off to train with Jiraiya>Tsunade already has three students>Kakashi is busy with missions>Kon is just kind of on his own, somewhat left behind with no great teacher to build his skills under>Suddenly, one night, there's a tapping on Kon's window>It's motherfucking Kakuzu>"Hey kid, wanna make a lot of money?"
So, Itachi is probably looking for possible successors to himself already, knowing he'll be Hokage soon.Who is he looking at?
>>42859658>"But i don't want to sell my body..."
>>42859658>>42859668Peanutbutter, let me introduce you to Chocolate.
>>42859658This pleases mes
>>42859668No one cuz that's too fucking soon.He's not even the Hokage yet.
>>42859658>Implying he wouldn't murder us in our sleep to steal our bloodline.
>>42859668Konohamaru. Sasuke. Tsunade if his end is unfortunately early.Definitely not Kon, because people tend to forget he exists. Iruka sensei didn't even know his name when he graduated.
>>42859637Laze was being lazy, that's all it was. And now WE have to pay for it.
>>42859723>Implying Orochibitch wouldn't stop him because he also wants that bloodline
>>42859723Part of the training, anon. Never sleep.
>>42859741Iruka knew your name, you're thinking of Mizuki
>>42859763Dang, we should ask Konohamaru if he can find the rumored Shadow Clone jutsu.
>>42859658I'd be OK with that. W buy our way into numerous points of power, tear down th Aktski and have kakuzu as head bounty hunter of the world, we throw large amount of money and the lik
>>42859797We should learn that shitKakashi knows that tech, we should bitch at him until he teaches that to us
>>42859658I would enjoy this were it not for the fact that he would inevitably murder us for the sake of profit.If he didn't, he wouldn't be Kakuzu.
>>42859753>orochimaru on one side>kakuzu on the other>both beckoning kon towards themI want it
>>42859866>Doesn't matter what side we choose>We'll die anywayOkay
>>42859829We need to increase our stamina at this point.
>>42859886Our stamina is 3.0 m8It's already above averageWe got really fucking tired because Kakuzu's 4.0/5.0 IIRC
>>42859829We've been aiming for exploding clones since day 1, but our chakara reserves haven't ever really been good enough for them.
>>42859836He'd probably just be in it to fight someone worth killing again, like in the good old days.Some vestigial sense of pride, maybe.
>>42859901Kakashi was fine at 3.0 in canon because he had excellent chakra control.Guess what?
>>42859945I think Laze that if our chakra control could be measured like the other stats our chakra control would be 4.0
>>42859658I feel like this quest would drastically improve if it went off-canon, because honestly 90% of it is "do the main plot, people are changed around but the same stuff happens". It's all the same story beats.If Kakuzu figured he could make a lot of money off of us and decided to start some kind of Akatsuki Mary Kay deal, that'd be a step in the right direction.I don't know, I guess I don't like the idea that so much is the same as the actual story.
>>42859976Are you excited for the Second Movie, friend?
Perhaps we should focus on eliminating our weak points in the near future...At the very least, levelling strength will help with impact a bit, since we'd withstand more.I really wanna catch genjutsu up, but I understand that now may not be the time.Actually, instead, let's try levelling intelligence in the near future.
>>42858419So did we tell Kankuro and Temari about that place Shino found?
>>42860024Just read a bookWho knows maybe if we up our Int to a certain point we won't be able to do stupid things to a certain extend
>>42860016Nobody is excited for that piece of shit movie. Gelel sucked on every level.
>>42860016Not doing any more movies>>42860049Yes
>>42860016All I remember about that one was that there were knights. Only Naruto movie I've seen and liked was the one where Rock Lee had a bunch of magnetic nunchucks that turned into a over-9000-section chain whip that turned into a giant staff
>>42859836implying w don't spend a year bounty hunting together, making sure we are sen, raising a giant ass bounty on us, last day of training we both try to kill each other for one anothers bounties winner takes all.
>>42860079>Not doing any more moviesNot even the Shipuuden ones?
>>42860085>>42860079>no more moviesThank Christ
>>42860064Didn't see that movie neither i now about itWhat's it about?
>>42860079How good is our stealth? I don't think we've actually ambushed anyone all quest.
>>42860116We ambushed those Sound and Sand fuckers back at the Chuunin Exams.
>>42860085>one where Rock Lee had a bunch of magnetic nunchucks that turned into a over-9000-section chain whip that turned into a giant staffThat sounds fucking amazing.
>>42860099I never even saw those except for the one with shitty sky ninjas or something equally dumbSo most likely not>>42860116You guys can be pretty stealthy when you want
>>42860116>>42860156>Almost like a ninja or something
>>42860104Magic glowing rock and an army of Westaboo knights in a dead zone in the desert even deader than the rest of it.Further details have been mercifully blotted out by time and cranial trauma.
>>42860156Can we use our Impact release to bind a bunch of leaves together into one big leaf so we can use it as a hang-glider?
>>42860150>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Cn6pJ5_KqUExcuse the music, it's the only one I could find.And that's all good, but that's all that's good.
>>42860181Gaara did stuff in it.
>>42860181>Knights in a Ninja settingCould be good if done rightBy the sounds of your salt it failed miserably
>>42860200NoPretty sure that doesn't make sense
>>42860200Dude that's Hamon/Ripple/SendoWe're not ZeppeliAlthough his top hat is sexy as fuck
>>42860156>I never even saw those except for the one with shitty sky ninjas or something equally dumbThat's the one with the Zero Tails right?Also, the timetraveling one was moderately interesting.
>>42860205God damn Lee is awesome.The greatest crime in the bloodline bullshit taking over was how badly outclassed the guy wound up being.
>>42860216Think of it this way:Samurai exist. Not just the ones with Gato, but an entire nation of them: The Land of Iron. They're basically Switzerland as far as the ninja world is concerned.They serve two purposes:>mediate the 5 kage summit as a neutral party>jobIt was such a waste, and it's all canon. Mifune is probably my favorite non-OP character to play as.
I'm curiousWhats you opinion on Naruto The Last?
>>42860295Is it weird that I think an Iron Samurai Quest could be kinda awesome?
>>42860296I still haven't seen itIt's irrefutably canon though, so it's not like the other movies
>>42860296The amount of salt had by NaruSaku shippers was legendary.Honestly, the only thing I can really complain about after the second timeskip is the conclusion of Sarada Gaiden. Should have had it that Sakura wasn't her mom, but fuck it, she raised Sarada, she's her mom, instead of "don't worry you were the princess all along so it doesn't actually matter".I'm even okay with Orochimaru and Kabuto getting away with everything.>>42860318If I were inclined to run a quest, I'd run that quest. I'd have to actually have a good system to work off of though.>>42860328Yup, it's like History of Trunks or Bardock
>>42860369That was seriously the greatest time I'd ever had on /a/Fucking glorious
>>42860397Are you still sane after all that though? I'd argue not.
>>42860296>Whats you opinion on Naruto The Last?Should have replaced the moonman with some ancient evil sealed in Uzushiogakure. Maybe Jashin. Simply reusing the moonmen was lazy. And then they did it again with the Borito movie.
>>42860397...Is everything that has happened in the quest so far a part of Hizashi's master plan?
>>42860421>Marvin the Martian Next villain in Naruto ConfirmedI would honestly pay money for that.
>>42860369>The amount of salt had by NaruSaku shippers was legendary.Gentlemen, behold.The Hall of Anal Devastation:http://imgur.com/a/XKwJ4#384
So who's the waifu now? It still Tenten? Or someone else?
>>42860437>HizashiAnyway, in this timeline Hiashi plays less CK2
>>42860477Tenten is still 10/10.
>>42860397Blatant backpedaling, goalpost-shifting, using clear edits as evidence, outright denial.There were no jokes to make, really. Anything more than what was already there would have cheapened it.I remember during Sarada Gaiden I killed an argument all by myself.>"suigetsu did the test wrong, he's an idiot, abloobloobloo">link to description of how to do a parental DNA test, it's exactly as shown in manga>>42860437Hinata leaving with Naruto is probably going off the rails.But it might lead to her and Sasuke hooking up once he turns her back to good, and a Hyuuga/Uchiha mix, according ot Kishi, means one in each eye, and that's a win.>evil hinata with validation via Naruto's approvalShe's going to be dressed sexy as fuck underneath her Akatsuki robes.
>>42860477It better be Tenten still
>>42860454Goddamn this is delicious
>>42860480>Hiashi plays less CK2Less Crusader Kings 2 is not NO Crusader Kings 2, though.So I presume he had some sort of a plan that got all fucked up by Hinata running away?
>>42860454>http://imgur.com/a/XKwJ4#462>that symbolismWhat the fuck.
>>42860566NaruSaku fans are literally retarded, anon.
Why does Naruto have a voice actress?
>>42860614Younger animated male characters are frequently played by women because older men have too deep a tone and young kids can't act for shit.
>>42860614So that he can talk.
>>42860528I still think Salad being Karin's would have made for a better story, but it's KishiWhat are you gonna do>>42860544He would have liked some god tier heirs, yes
>>42860642Except the kid who did Al in 2003 FMAHe was a fucking godsend
>>42860702Aang was an actual 12-year-old boy too
>>42860702I fucking hated the kid in AI tho
Quick question LazeDoes the Say no evil monkey only takes the voice of a person or does he also take the sense of taste as well since it also comes from the mouth?
>>42860867I was thinking just the voiceDoes it really matter though? When are you ever going to taste in battle
>>42860897There are guys like orochimaru that use snakes that can taste the air with their tongues to track enemies and shitJust saying that blocking taste would make sense
>>42860921Sure then, why not
>>42860897Hey laze thought of something. When you do level ups why not use all the numbers? Like taijutsu gets a small increase to 1.7 or so instead of flat .5? Might get the gains assholes off your back. Course it just means more work though so yeah.
>>42860931I just go by the system they use in the databooksAnd yeah that'd be more work, so fuck that
>>42860913I think we'd be a good matchup against Yugito Nii, she's pretty splosion happy herself
>>42860950Not really just keep track in the pastebin or hell I'll do it for ya!
