This is Boruto Quest, a quest set in the universe of Naruto. It is during the generation of Naruto's son, shortly after everyone has graduated from their Genin exam. I haven't kept up with the series beyond the end of the original one, so this one is intended to recapture the feel of that time of Naruto. I will not be incorporating the main show or the Boruto movie's plot into the quest, although some recognizable characters will be present. You play as a 12 year old Genin graduate named Takeshi. You have been assigned a Jounin squad leader named Hanto, and your two squadmates are Kichiro, a young delinquent, and Ai, a strange social outcast of a girl. You are of average skill in most aspects, although your sharp intelligence has recently been making itself apparent. The Chunin Exams have begun. The first day in the Forest of Death.
>>42853381Your weapons sing through the air with a soft tone, the bells giving your opponent a warning to your attack. You keep a kunai drawn, prepared to defend. Crouching down, you attempt to focus your hearing so that you may be able to discern any counter-attacks from the smoke. There's tension in the air, and the forest floor is darkening as the sun sets. A soft breeze causes the branches overhead to sway gently, and the smoke is pushed to the side as it dissipates. All that remains are several of your senbon, and your traps. You take a few cautious steps forward to examine, and find that your strategy actually managed to work, despite your opponent escaping. There's blood on the tips of the kunai knives, so he's at least lightly injured. Suddenly, an arm wraps itself around your throat. You're pulled to your knees and the tip of a tactical knife is being pressed against your throat, drawing forth a droplet of blood. The voice behind you is that of the Grass Genin."Talk." >A. I have the earth scroll! >B. My team is at the north gate! They have the scroll! (Lie)>C. I have the heaven scroll! (Lie)>D. Our scroll has already been taken! We came to the north to retreat and rest! (Lie) >E. NEVER! >F. Put on an act. "No! Please don't hurt me! Let me go!" (Cry) >G. Write-in
>>42853394>>B. My team is at the north gate! They have the scroll! (Lie)
>>42853394>G. Write-in>StallCan I at least get your name? Seriously. That was amazing!
>>42853394>B>G"How the fuck are you so fast"
>>42853470We already heard his name, it's Snake.
>>42853394>G. Substitute out. Seriously, why would you stop without preparing a substitute?
>>42853478It's less that he's fast and more that he's a super sneaky snek.
>>42853619He's so sneaky that I was fooled into thinking his sneakiness was speed.
>>42853394>>D. Our scroll has already been taken! We came to the north to retreat and rest! (Lie)Which is a partial truth so he shouldn't really do anything else right?
>>42853648>Which is a partial truth so he shouldn't really do anything else right?This makes no sense.
>>42853700The lie is we lost our scroll but came north to rest is the truth. After he learns that he hopefully won't kill Takeshi.
>>42853394>G. Write-inGive him the radio frequency
>>42853394>G. Write-in"Please just let go of me for a couple minutes I promise not to run away but I had some bad ramen last night and it's not agreeing with my stomach so please I don't wanna crap all over my pants!"Johnny Sasaki time.
>>42853739I know what the lie and truth are. What I don't understand is why you think telling him a partial truth will make him overlook the lie part, especially when he can confirm the lie by searching us, but not the truth.
>>42853424>>42853454>>42853478>>42853470https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGdFPcLx-vsHis grip is iron, and there doesn't seem to be any way to worm your way out of it. You can feel the Earth scroll in your left tool-bag against your leg, and you know that if he searches you there's nothing you'll be able to do. You're completely at his mercy at this moment, so it seems the only option is to comply in some form. You take a deep breath, and consider your answer. "First, can I ask how you did that? It was seriously amazing! What's your name? My name is-" He presses the blade more. The droplet of blood turns into a slim, scarlet streak. He growls. "Stop wasting my time." You gulp. "My team is at the Northern gate. They have the scroll." He relaxes the knife and pulls it away, before pressing the tip against the base of your spine. He starts to pat his hand across your shoulders, chest, arms, and stomach. He's looking to see if you lied about the position of the scroll. He's behind you, but your hands are free, and placed in front of you. What do you do?>A. Cast the False Place Jutsu on him to change your Earth Scroll into a scroll about basic Academy jutsu.>B. Cast the False Sound Jutsu to create the sound of a roaring tiger, and hopefully distract him long enough for a Taijutsu counter.>C. Use your knowledge of your body's organs and vital spots to shift yourself slightly, and allow him to stab you. The attack will be nonfatal and you can attack in response. >D. Write-in
>>42853835>C. Use your knowledge of your body's organs and vital spots to shift yourself slightly, and allow him to stab you. The attack will be nonfatal and you can attack in response.
>>42853835>A. Cast the False Place Jutsu on him to change your Earth Scroll into a scroll about basic Academy jutsu.
>>42853835>D. Get a Substitution going
>>42853640Sneakiness does that.>>42853394Ugh, so the longer we stall, the more time it gives his team to get into position, whereas our team is unaware. Which is a shame, because I wanna sass him so bad:"So, what, you wanna know the deeper motivations and intricacies of why I'm here, with philosophical bullshit? I can do that. I wanna be the very best, like noone ever was. Uh, that's it. Sorry if it's a bit boring."But as much as I want to, it's not the smart thing to do. Hmm, how about... Let's borrow a page from Kon's book.>>G. "I like explosions. You can't see where my tag is from this angle, can you?" (Lie).With any luck, that'll put him on the defensive.
>>42853865You have to prepare it in advance, you can't do it at will.
>>42853835>C. Use your knowledge of your body's organs and vital spots to shift yourself slightly, and allow him to stab you. The attack will be nonfatal and you can attack in response.This is the most Metal Gear response to this situation, thus making it the clear best choice when dealing with Snake.Question Laze. Is his voice Hayter Snake or Kiefer Snake?
>>42853888>LazeHow many times has this happened? The answer to your question is Hayter, though
>>42853888Oh god dammit.MINI.Question MINI.First that guy Wednesday night, now me.
>>42853835>A. Cast the False Place Jutsu on him to change your Earth Scroll into a scroll about basic Academy jutsu.Then, if he opens it up...bueno.
>>42853867Ugh, too slow. Stupid speedy snek.>>42853835C is risky because there's no guarantee he'll stab where we want him to. A is risky because he knows we know that technique and he'll see us casting it. B is risky because he'll see us casting it.>>C. Use your knowledge of your body's organs and vital spots to shift yourself slightly, and allow him to stab you. The attack will be nonfatal and you can attack in response.
>>42853939He's behind you, anon. How's he going to see your hands when his face is in your back as he's searching you?All he'll know is that your arms and hands moved, but he won't be able to tell what you're doing.
>trying to Genjutsu Snake>and Hayter Snake, to bootIt won't work, he'll just switch the controller to the second slot and shank us for trying.
>>42853995We need to genjutsu the sound of an ocelot.
>>42853968Point. Then he might guess we did something, but he won't know what... Still, that lowers the risk considerably.Gonna switch >>42853939 to A, then. ...Alternatively, we could switch it so it's a Heaven scroll instead of an Earth, and use his reaction to figure out which one he has, then tell him it's a Genjutsu if he tries to take it. But there's nothing stopping him from just destroying the scroll like Mari did, technically...
Guys, he already knows what our genjutsu is, C is the best technique unless we want to do a double physche out and pretend to use false place thus making him think that we genjutsu'd a regular scroll into looking like an earth scroll.
Do people want more time to plan or would you like to go ahead and go with A?
>>42854153Go with A. I have no plan for this part. I would have liked to set up a Substitution while he was in the smoke, but...
>>42854112I don't think getting stabbed is a good option. Even if it's non fatal, stab wounds tend to hurt a lot and greatly diminish your fighting ability. Even if we somehow escape from him, healing it will deplete our chakra, which will suck in a endurance contest like this one.
>>42854153A, Snake isn't bright.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8oFiJgsyEcShit. Shit. Your entire team's success is riding on this moment. You can't let this happen. It's not how this was supposed to go. Cornered, alone and tired in the forest on the first night. A knife to your throat and the enemy in every direction. Is that was being a Shinobi is like? Fighting every day for survival and a paycheck. Is that what you want? The foreign shinobi's hand draws closer to the scroll in your pocket.The answer to your query presents itself in the form of your actions. You're not going to lose here, or ever. You put on an act, looking behind you quickly for a distraction. "H-hey! Watch where you're grabbing, yeah?!" The enemy simply growls at you and thrusts a knee into your back. "Be quiet! I want to get this over with, already.." As you fall to the ground, you flick through the handseals you've memorized to cast the False Place jutsu. Manipulating the chakra network in your opponent's brain, you replace the Earth Scroll in your pocket with the illusion of a simple explanation of the Clone jutsu. His hand rests on the tool bag and opens it up, drawing out what appears to him to be a white scroll. He glances at it and back to you."So you really don't have the scroll, then. Oh well." He puts a finger up to his headset. "O, Let's congregate around the north gate. I've disabled most of the traps in the area. The rest of the Leaf Genin's squad should be resting there. They'll have a scroll, whether it's Earth or Heaven." He turns to you, and flicks a dart into the back of your neck. Instantly some sort of chemical begins to spread itself through your body, and you become extremely tired. You fall to the ground wordlessly, and your enemy leaves and heads to your team as you slumber.Cont.
>>42854413Well, at least we'll get some sleep.
Man. I want whatever that guy's packing.We should really consider allying with Grass.Because Takeshi and Snake in Konoha would be fun.
>>42854413So, we did the paper thing right? So that Ai knows the person who will be showing up isn't us?
>>42854469I think it's mostly that he got us in the back of the neck
>>42854516Our team wasn't in the north. Snake's going on a fool's errand. Almost like heating up a key.
>>42854413You wake up about twenty minutes later. It's dark. You stand up, woozily, but soon regain your senses. Your throat stings from the slight cut, but otherwise you feel rested and refreshed, both in body and mind. You'll have to thank that Grass ninja if you see him again. There's only one thing that has you worried. Did Ai and Kichiro get attacked while you were passed out? You begin to run back towards the North gate, and on your way, you can see smoke rising in the distance. As you come through the brush, you're stunned to see the destruction of the battlefield. All around is mangled trees burnt to a cinder.All of the trees in the area weren't here before like this. The clearing is almost completely full of them, and they look as if they were tentacles directed to attacking. If it wasn't for the fire, there would be no room to walk. You look around, and can't find Kichiro or Ai anywhere. Turning back, you look at the immense forest, knowing that it's several kilometers of nothing but pure danger. You're hungry. What are you going to do?>A. Try to move as quickly as possible to find Kichiro or Ai.>B. Move at a slow pace, and look for something to eat. You'll be quiet this way, and conserve energy.>C. Scout the area and try and set up a camp nearby. You'll be able to stay hidden from enemies, and Kichiro and Ai may return to this area searching for you.>D Write-in
>>42854554The ol' spicy keychain
>>42854580>>C. Scout the area and try and set up a camp nearby. You'll be able to stay hidden from enemies, and Kichiro and Ai may return to this area searching for you.We should've taken the risk now we're fucked.
>>42854554looks like they found them anyways.
>>42854580>B. Move at a slow pace, and look for something to eat. You'll be quiet this way, and conserve energy.
>>42854580>C. Scout the area and try and set up a camp nearby. You'll be able to stay hidden from enemies, and Kichiro and Ai may return to this area searching for you.First rule of wilderness survival
>>42854580>>B. Move at a slow pace, and look for something to eat. You'll be quiet this way, and conserve energy.
>>42854580>Set up new traps or work on reabling the ones Snake took out.>That's right Snake. These traps reset here.>Also set up traps for animals to eat.
>>42854580>>D. Check and make sure we still have our scroll.>>B. Move at a slow pace, and look for something to eat. You'll be quiet this way, and conserve energy.
>>42854580>A. Try to move as quickly as possible to find Kichiro or Ai.
>>42854622>>42854629>>42854666You head towards the forest once more, early in the evening. As you're walking you decide to check and see if you have the Earth scroll, and you still do. So it's up to you to protect it until you find your team. You decide to take a walk through the area where you set up all of your traps, and gather up the equipment it took to make them. You have a total of 15 Kunai on you, and 30 Senbon. There's 6 uses of your poison left, you have bells, and a dozen or so feet of wire. Plus an explosive tag that Ai gave you.You're full on Chakra, too. Looking around the dark forest, you can hardly see. As you're walking, something moving through the trees ahead catches your eye. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7m0IUJS-LOYIn the distance, there's an owl resting on a branch. It's pure white, almost glowing in the darkness. It's looking at you with large, black eyes. The owl stares for a few moments longer, before slowly turning it's head to the side. It flies forth, through the trees.At the same time, a tiger slips through the forest and out of your vision. It could be food.>A. Follow the owl.>B. Follow the tiger.
>>42854933>>A. Follow the owl.
>>42854933>A. Follow the owl.
>>42854933>A. Follow the owl.We summoning contract now?
>>42854933>>B. Follow the tiger.I must.
>>42854960>>42854981>>42854996>>42855010>>42855012You sprint in the direction of the white owl, feeling strangely compelled to chase it. You dash through the trees, thankfully able to see the creature clearly. It leads you on for a while before coming into a clearing, and soaring directly into a small gap, on a massive tree in the center. The tree is as thick as several houses, and the small gap seems to lead into nothing but darkness. You wonder if it's completely hollow. Slowing down, you start to walk towards the intimidating organism. As you walk towards it, something draws your eye up near the base of the tree. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5FeKFKLvwAIt's Mitsuki. He's smiling, and waving at you. What do you do? >A. Approach him and greet him.>B. Keep your distance, and call out to him.>C. Dash for the small gap in the tree.>D. Write-in
>>42855119>>D. Write-inFuck this find our teammates
>>42855119>B. Keep your distance, and call out to him.Be prepared to dash
>>42855119>B. Keep your distance, and call out to him
>>42855119>A. Approach him, Greet him.>D. Be ready to use the 'It's just a clone technique scroll' trck in a heartbeat.
>>42855119>B. Keep your distance, and call out to him.On the one hand, Mitsuki seems a reasonably likable chap.On the other hand, his dad is Orochi-fucking-maru.
>>42855119>A. Approach him and greet him.
>>42855119>>B. Keep your distance, and call out to him.I like this guy. He's fun.But his MomDad is Orochimaru, who, while also fun, is not remotely trustworthy.
>>42855119>>D. Prepare substitution.
>>42855119>B. Keep your distance, and call out to him.Can never be too carefull.Atleast not in a forest filled with ninjas.
Will return momentarily, going to eat dinner real quick.
>>42855186>>42855215This is the same reason Fenrir was captured and chained to the ground for all eternity in Norse mythology, because his dad was Loki/aka someone everyone hated. TL;DR don't judge someone by their shitty parents or they'll grow 100 feet tall and eat the head of your religious pantheon
>>42855119>>42855626Well I'm sold,>A. Approach him and greet him.
>>42855626We need to make a weapon out of the sound cats make when they move, women's beards, and I forget the last bit..
>>42855626Showing reasonable caution when alone with someone who has valid reason to work against you is not the same as teaming up with a bunch of other people, isolating and chaining up someone that had nothing against you, and then sacrificing an arm and your word just to fuck them over.Normally Tyr was okay, but that was a dick move.
>>42855151>>42855174>>42855186>>42855215You stop. Although you've met Mitsuki and shared a short conversation with him, you don't really know anything about him. He could just be using your good faith to lure you into a trap, so you don't want to march right up to him. Of course, you don't want to instigate him either. If you attack him for no reason, and he ends up being powerful, you'll be screwed. He is on a team with Sarada and Boruto, after all.You wave back, deciding to be nice, but be cautious. "Hey, Mitsuki! Where's your team? How are you fairing?" He starts to walk towards you slowly. During the still moment, it sounds as if there's something huge moving in the bushes nearby. What are you going to do?>A. Let him approach you, but prepare a substitution jutsu with a nearby log. >B. Let him approach you, but warn him that if he tries anything you're armed. >C. Tell him to stop where he is, and explain that you just can't trust anyone not on your team.>D. Tell him to stop where he is, because it sounds like something is moving in the bushes.>E. Write-in
>>42855717>D. Tell him to stop where he is, because it sounds like something is moving in the bushes.
>>42855717>C. Tell him to stop where he is, and explain that you just can't trust anyone not on your team.Prepare a substitution anyways
>>42855717>E. "Look man, can we not do this song and dance? I don't even have the scroll, my team does and I have no clue where they are. Just search me and we move on, how 'bout?"
>>42855717This >>42855740Prepare a substitute for a quick get away. We need to find our team
>>42855717>Wait. How do I know your the real Mitsuki>Why aren't you concerned I'm not the real Takeshi?>Substitution+Log Bomb Clone
>>42855717>A. Let him approach you, but prepare a substitution jutsu with a nearby log.
>>42855717>E. Casually throw something pointy into the bushes.
Bad news, guys. Something's come up that I have to help my family with real quick, so I'm going to be gone for an hour or two. I'll continue when I return, either making a new thread or on this one if it's still here. Very sorry.
>>42855982It's all good, bro
>>42855982No worries. We'll be here.Unless my internet cuts out again. Then I'll be elsewhere.
>>42855982It's all good.In the mean time, I think we were talking about different techniques we should work on.Also: how do summoning scrolls work? Could you just summon anyone? Didn't Naruto summon that frog accidentally? Does Ten-Ten summon random weapons from her shop, or are they like inside the scroll somehow?Can you summon people?Can you create a wicked-fast transportation system?
Anyone got a link to the previous threads? Want to get up to speed
Think we should give her a sunflower, or do you think she'd find that lame?Does Ino still have that flower shop?
>>42856352She might appreciate it.
>>42856352>Himawari Shit taste, lad. Get real taste. Mari, snowfu or lifelong singleness
>>42856352She probably does. And that might be a bit cliché but we're 12, that's the age where you can get away with being cliché and people think it's charming
>>42856549>Claims others have shit taste>Would go after the snow slut
>>42856551Mari or bust
>>42856606I choose the bust
Let's be honest we're too young to waifu, and to have a shot at any of them we'd need to be able to beat or at least do very well against them.
>>42856549>>42856571>>42856606Guys, guys, lets not fight. At least we can all agree Hyuga girls are best girls
>>42856698Indeed, smart diplomancing anon
>>42856698Truth.But does anyone know about the summoning questions in >>42856155 ?
>>42856698No, only Mari. I won't fall for your tactics.
>>42856795Mari is good and all, but come on.
>>42856795To be fair, we haven't met too many girls, might be a better option later.On the other hand, burning the scrolls was uncalled for, and Himawari is definitely more appealing to me.
>>42856625Chocho a cute.Disregard females. Platonic shogi buddy is best route.
>>42856754Well, Laze has a sort of summon thig that works on humans, Tenten uses it on Kon all the time and it works pretty much like teleportation.I don't know if Mini would allow something like that though. It seems too close to flying thunder god for it to be THAT easy so he might make it a high level thing
Anybody have our stats?
question say we become chunnin dose that allow us to use the forbidden scroll
>>42856896I think I remember Mini adding everything started at 2 or 2.5 but since we've been focusing genjutsu and strategy more, those should be up to 3 or 3.5
>>42856930We need to be Jonin for that
>>42856953damn it i really want the overpower shadow clone since we can use it to learn two techniques at once
>>42856875You KNOW one of the girls is going to scoop him up eventually. He's smart, bishie and a prince.>>42856933Wrong everything was at 1.5 except Int which was 3.5 and genjutsu which was a 2 if memory serves. Since then our chakra control got bumped as did our ninjutsu.>>42856984We just need to do another solid for Naruto or another Jonin willing to teach it then.
You all do remember that we pulled a dick move on Mari by bitch quiting in the middle of the match like that right?Lets be honest, if this was Mari Quest we definetly would have pulled off worse payback and with less restraint if that happened to us.
>>42857009>We just need to do another solid for Naruto or another Jonin willing to teach it then.well our sensei said he knows how to do
Ninjutsu: 1.5Taijutsu: 1.5Genjutsu: 2.0Intelligence: 3.5Strength: 1.5Speed: 1.5Stamina: 1.5Hand Seals: 2.0 Total: 15.0 This was the last total on Takeshi Mini Posted. Since then we got a boost to Ninjutsu and Chakra control.>>42857136Yup. Just gotta give him a reason to teach us.
>>42857093We didn't want to die anon, she would have fucking wrecked us if we were fair. So we weren't. I think it's absolutely what an entitled twelve year-old would do, but we are also twelve, so we wouldn't get that. All in all, right now Mari seems like the long term option.
>>42856984No we can't. Kakishi even mentioned to Naruto that not even he could abuse the shadow clone knowledge thing to train. The only reason Naruto could was because he fuckloads of chakra.
>>42857093So wait... we accuse Mari of being tsundere... but we actually started it. Does this mean...? Could it be?"No! I must marry the tsunderes!" he shouted.The anon said "No Takeshi, you are the tsunderes."And then Takeshi was a Hyuuga.
>>42857579We're Ranma to Mari's Akane.
>>42857579Not really tsundere, we don't act like a butt to her. We just didn't think she'd take it so hard that we'd like to have our insides stay inside us.
>>42857902She's not taking it that hard, she's just engaged in friendly banter and competition. Himafags stop trying to defame best girl
>>42857922Mini has said repeatedly she wants to pound us into the dirt. She's nettled.
>>42857940And she burned scrolls that we could have used.
>>42857940We'll melt her icy heart with our soft smile.
>>42857949Like I said nettled, very nettled.>>42857973We'd need to face her in a full fight and not get rekt first.
>>42857949>she burned scrolls that we could have usedAnd her reasoning was "I'd prefer it if you got your victory the hard way rather than scrounging up after our victories."That's actually a very fair (if a bit cold) point.If she were being as big a cunt about the whole thing as some anons keep insisting, she would have taken OUR scroll and destroyed it, too. Not like we could have stopped her.
>>42857949That she was entirely entitled to since her team pretty much took out all the teams. we were basically trying to scavenge her wins. A pain for her to do that in front of our eyes but as far as im concerned we're even for the quiting thing.>>42857973I'm sure she'll open up when we actually manage to beat her in a fight
>>42858017>We'd need to face her in a full fight and not get rekt first.Honestly, I think she'd be happy if we just fought her to the limit of our abilities, instead of pussying out the instant it looked like we weren't going to win.Our very first interaction with her made us look like a smug, cowardly asshole.Once she's had her chance to beat the tar out of us, we can explain that we were thinking with chess logic, not fistfight logic, and that we didn't mean to offend her.Because we WERE in the wrong, although I know /tg/ will never admit that fact.
>>42858017>>42858024I don't think we need to beat her, but fighting her is probably a good plan
>>42858024>>42858021>>42858017Have you considered, maybe, that now there aren't enough scrolls to go around, making our job harder. At this point, it might have been impossible if we didn't know Snake's team has a Heaven Scroll, and right now that's our only chance. We might not even have to fight him, if we can find "O".I have an idea about bluffing a radio jammer jutsu and using False Sound to make static in his ears.
>>42858021>Not like we could have stopped her.Kichiro's minefield and AI's Lightnign might have created issues, especially sinc eChan was going to drop from poison soon. We did stalemate.
>>42858114>actually earning something is harder than just scavenging off of someone else's successSo we have to actually work for our scroll, boo fucking hoo.
>>42858141Weren't we fighting that group of ninja first before Mari's group killstole? Or am I misremembering? Because I could be misremembering.
>>42858294Yes, but they switched target to rush her, and got rekt.
Next time we see Mari we should be all sulky and pouty, to try and make her feel bad. Psycological warfare lads.
>>42858378Make her hate us more. great idea
>>42856071>>42855796>>42855737You hold up your hand, a warning to Mitsuki. Not one of your own hostile intent, however. You turn and look at the bushes. "Mitsuki, wait! There's something big moving around in the bushes. Don't come any closer. I think we should remain still for a moment.." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzK3m5RLmPMMitsuki nods, and smiles. "I agree. There's nothing I want more than for you to remain right where you are, Takeshi.." The dangerous tone on his voice causes you to tense up, and just as you slowly crouch down, the bushes near you explode as a humongous snake crashes through the cover. You leap away to the side and throw your kunai into it's eye, with deadly aim. It's been blinded, and enraged. It starts to thrash around the forest until Mitsuki forms several handseals.The snake stops it's wrath, and slithers to Mitsuki. It's as wide as he is tall, and probably over fifteen meters in length, and brown. It's one good green eye is looking at you with hatred. Mitsuki chuckles. "I don't think that was really necessary.." He's petting it's head, and pulls the kunai from the beast's eye. Shit. Mitsuki looks up at you, and smiles. "Please, Takeshi. Set your scroll down on the ground."He seems just as pleasant as the day you met him. What do you do?>A. Throw down a smoke bomb, and use the clone jutsu to distract him while you escape through the gap in the tree.>B. Prepare a substitution jutsu, and counter with your explosive tag and a log.>C. Shunshin away from Mitsuki and his snake.>D. Write-in
>>42858378That would do nothing but make us seem even more like a bitch. Mini has repeatedly said she wants to kick our ass, and until she gets her shot nothing will change. She definitely won't feel bad about us crying bitch tears.

>>42858409>>42858473but also use clones in a few other directionssummon clones, use genjutsu, then run
>>42858513Doesn't help that we're suffereing from a severe case of "anons vote right away instead of taking the time to come up with a plan, the thing which is explicitly our one advantage and which allowed ALL of our successes up to this point".
>>42858473>>42858499>>42858550Where do you guys want to run to? You can either try for the gap in the tree, or go back to the forest.

>>42858574Forest. Easier to lose him there.Hopefully.By the way, we are EATING that fucking snake at some point.
>>42858600You have no idea where your team is.

>>42858574I'd like to go in the direction of Not Here.
North is always a good direction.
Genjutsu a fake scroll for him to chase but make it all blurry and with mistakes so he thinks we have no idea what one looks like and concludes that we don't have it
>>42858741We could fake it to be blurryOr we could fill it with dickbutt
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=am7Za-5xl7kYou toss down a smoke bomb at your feet, and use the Clone jutsu. Two illusions of yourself dash forward, and you focus chakra at the bottom of your feet. Dashing backwards through the trees, you spin around midair and sprint away from Mitsuki. Hopefully your clones will distract him long enough for you to get through the dark forest, into cover. Your primary goal is to locate your team. Facing an opponent like Mitsuki is probably a bad idea. Especially when he has a collosal snake with a grudge against you. As you're dashing, the sound of trees being demolished is quickly approaching your rear. Looking back, you see Mitsuki riding on the top of his snake, crouched down. He throws a handful of Shuriken, and you leap to the left, and run up a tree to avoid him. The snake crashes into the base of the trunk and sends it crashing, and you're forced to leap up to a higher branch near the forest top. Looking down, the snake continues to crush every tree you leap to.You're going to get exhausted at this rate. What are you going to do? >A.

A giant snake and it's master probably qualify as a decent enough threat for that expense. You turn and wait for the monster to approach the tree you're perched in, and as he crashes his nose into it's base, you dive forward like a bird of prey. The creature's skin is slick when you land, but you use the same principle as the Tree-Walking jutsu to keep yourself stable. You quickly draw out the explosive tag, and hold it in your hand. Looking up, you see Mitsuki raise his arm covered in a sleeve at you. From it bursts forth three smaller snakes, hissing mid flight. You draw two senbon with your free hand and pin two of the serpents between the eyes, and then you draw a kunai from your open pouch to slash the last one away from you, coating your face in a warm spray of red blood. You slap the tag on the snake's back, and use Shunshin to launch into the air high above. You form a single handseal and an explosion rings out from below, echoing all throughout the forest and illuminating the darkness. Heat raises you higher into the sky, and you grab onto a branch and swing up and over it, landing in a seated position. You look down at your handiwork from the branches, and gore coats the forest. You see a massive snake, writhing in pain. It's been separated in half, and is no longer a threat. Mitsuki gives you a disappointing look, and shakes his head. "That was rather rude." >A. "My team heard that explosion. They're on their way for sure. Are you prepared to deal with all three of us?">B. "I don't have a scroll, Mitsuki.

>>42859056>D. Write-in"I apologize for hurting your partner, Mitsuki. But I'm not about to let myself be beaten. I don't even have the scroll, hell my whole team doesn't. We gave it to Kichiro, and some crazy Grass Genin with a box stole it from him."
the reason we are losing so bad is because we are wasting time talking before we even poke our enemies with poised Senbon.
>>42859235>poison>Orochimaru's kidhaha, he's pretty much the ONE person that wouldn't work against here if we got a clean hit.
>>42859270Do we know that?
>>42859235We only have a few doses of poison LEFT.
>>42859278No but we're also low on supplies and given all the snakes he ahs he's likely crazy poison resistant. Kinda like Kayo has a great nose.
>>42859076>>42859104>>42859105>>42859189>>42859195You frown, and shake your head at him. "I don't have the scroll, Mitsuki. You should leave so that neither of us have to waste energy on each other. I'm sorry about your snake, but you started this fight. I think we'd both be better off if we faced each other in the finals, right? We're from the same village, after all."He keeps his stare, and you get the feeling his demeanor isn't going to change anytime soon. Moments later, as if to break the tension, Ai lands to your left, and places her hand on her hip. She frowns at Mitsuki. You notice that she's got dried blood on her forehead, and her long hair is singed in places. "I see you've put that tag to good use." Kichiro lands on your right. He's panting, and covered in sweat. There are cuts all over his body, and you get the feeling he hasn't been fairing quite as well as Ai has. You look betwen them, and frown. "Did those Grass shinob find you guys?" They nod. Ai looks down at you with the same blank face as ever. "We escaped. But, tell me one thing, Takeshi. You said you lost the scroll. Did you really?" >A. Yes. (Maintain your lie to Mitsuki.)>B. No. (Break the lie. Mitsuki may want to fight.)
>>42859406>>A. Yes. (Maintain your lie to Mitsuki.)
>>42859406>>A. Yes. (Maintain your lie to Mitsuki.)I'll tell you how later so for right now let's focus on not didn't to another leaf gennin.
>>42859406>A. Yes. (Maintain your lie to Mitsuki.)
>>42859406>A. Yes. (Maintain your lie to Mitsuki.)Flase Sound our voice telling our team that we did not.
>>42859406>A. Yes.We've worked on silent hand signals, yes? Do we have one for 'Lie'?
>>42859406>>A. Yes. (Maintain your lie to Mitsuki.)ask her for the password
>>42859406>C. FALSE SOUND NIGGA
>>42859406>A. Yes. (Maintain your lie to Mitsuki.)BEWARE THE GENJUTSU!
>>42859406>A. Yes."But before we get to that, what's the password?"
You lower your head slightly. "I did..It was against that Grass Ninja. I guess he came to attack you guys just in case you had any other scrolls on you. To eliminate the chance of more competition like Mari did. I'm sorry." Looking up at Ai, you can see that she's more tense than ever. In fact, you notice that she seems totally different now than from when you last saw her, before you were knocked out. Most of the time Ai simply looks bored or distant, but looking at her eyes, she seems totally present in this moment. You look at Kichiro, and he's grinning, and chuckling quietly. You see that he's looking at Ai too. She turns down to Mitsuki, and removes her headband from her arm. She brushes her hair out of the way and wraps it around her forehead, and speaks in the same flat tone as usual, but with an edge of volume. "I see. Then we'll have to double-time it if we want to succeed. It seems that it's getting all too common to destroy extra scrolls, so the longer we take, the less of a chance that we have." She leaps down, across from Mitsuki, and puts her hands up in a fighting stance. "You two can rest for a moment. I'll handle this.">A. Let me back you up! We've got no idea how good he is!>B. If you insist.>C. Fine, if that's how you want it. (Support her through Genjutsu)>D. Write-in

It's actually Ai and Kichiro, guys. they heard the explosion and were on their way to the North gate again
>>42859878How do we know YOU aren't a Genjutsu too, Mini?
>>42859878Or maybe their so good at it they've even fooled you...We're dealing with S Class stuff.
>>42859878...Oh....then I guess I'll just go back to >>42859774 then.
>>42859878if you fuck us over i swear to god mini
>>42859878well IC we dont know that, let's just add in a "break genjutsu" line to verify

You scoff. "Fine, if that's how you want it." A moment later, you form the handsigns for the False Sound jutsu. You let both Ai and Kichiro know that the scroll is safe in your pocket. At that moment, Ai turns, and stares up at you with those burning eyes. She looks serious. "I don't want you to use your Genjutsu to help me, Takeshi. I want you to conserve your chakra." She turns to Mitsuki, who's stepped off the corpse of his snake. He quickly forms several handseals, and clones made of mud rise from the ground and start to sprint towards Kichiro. Despite Ai's request, you move to form a jutsu.The wounded Kichiro stands up, and shakes his head. "Watch." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbcGX9zO1u8Your friend down below opens up two weapon holsters on her sides, and you can see spools of wire. She draws two shuriken and seems to loop them through the wires, connecting them instantly. She tosses the weapons and grabs the wires extending from her spool, and yanks. They disconnect, and she ties the two weapons together, and starts to manipulate them in midair. They move through the air with deadly precision towards Mitsuki, but he simply leaps out of harm's way. One of the shuriken get stuck in a tree, but by holding the wire she manipulates the second to Mitsuki as he and the clones rush her down. The shuriken pierces one of the clones, and Ai leaps over it and releases the wire. By carrying it's momentum, it pins itself into the other tree.
>>42860061The wire is strung across the clearing. Ai balances on it as it lands, and places her fingertips on the edge. As she does so, she channels her lightning release chakra into the wire just as Kagami had done. The wire glows bright blue, and bolts of energy strike each of the clones, causing it to explode. Mitsuki himself is also struck on the arm, and he dashes away, grunting and holding the smoking flesh. Ai stands up, and places a hand on her hip. It was planned from the start.Did she learn that jutsu mid-combat? She didn't tell you that she knew it earlier. Maybe she figured out how to do it simply from watching Kagami. >A. Tell Kichiro to hit Mitsuki with a fireball before he tries to escape, or counterattack.>B. Leap down and try and stab Mitsuki and bring him down before he can recover.>C. Let Ai handle it.>D.

>>42860061>"I don't want you to use your Genjutsu to help me, Takeshi. I want you to conserve your chakra."Why do I get the sudden feeling that Ai's issues in some way relate to Orochimaru?>>42860086>C. Let Ai handle it.Girl's got this shit on lockdown.

>>42860121Dude, you don't get it.This guy is on the same team as Sarada and Boruto.If they do show up, we're fucked.
>>42860194OOC I know, IC Takeshi does not. So I'm using Ic knowledge. OOC you are very much correct and thanks to her eyes our genjutsu is useless on Sarada.
>>42860230What do you mean we don't know? We graduated from the same class, we heard their team assignments.
>>42860282We'd never met Mitsuki before, so I'm assuming given that, that particular team is still a mystery to us. If we do know we'd be even more on guard, if only to pull Ai out of the fight and leg it if need be.
>>42860306We have actually. He even said he was in salads and borus team.
>>42860306We met him in the first few threads anon.
>>42860306We met Mitsuki LITERALLY in the first thread.And we knew him before that, we'd just never interacted with him in any way whatsoever.
>>42860306the only member of that team we haven't met ironically is Boruto
>>42860306 it super obvious sometimes that people dont actually read the quests and just come in to argue.
You decide that it seems best to let Ai handle the situation. Kichiro seems to have plenty of confidence in her, after all. Immediately, she begins her next move. Mitsuki has hardly landed on his feet before your team mate has drawn two kunai and looped wire through them. She yanks the spools of wire until a large amount comes free, cuts it, and ties them together all in a smooth motion. You get the feeling she's been practicing using these wires with weaponry for a while now, based on her movements. She throws both of the kunai in an arc just over Mitsuki's head, so that the wire stretches out horizontally between them as they separate. Just as they go behind Mitsuki, she preforms several handseals and shouts the name of her jutsu. "Manipulating Attacking Blades Technique!" The kunai stop themselves in midair, and possessed by an invisible force, turn over silently. Mitsuki looks behind him in shock, but the knives have launched themselves in reverse. The wire wraps around the Leaf Genin and imprison his arms, and the kunai spin around until they stab into both of his shoulders, cementing his capture. Ai runs forward and engages him in Taijutsu, with Mitsuki moving to desperately dodge her attacks. He throws in a kick frequently to force her to dodge, but it doesn't look good for him.
>>42860561She pounces for a stab, but Mitsuki falls on his back and kicks her in the gullet with both feet, sending her flying. His neck extends as he reaches down and bites off the wire, freeing himself, despite his two injuries. He quickly forms several handseals, and throws a shuriken, and states the name of his jutsu. "Shadow Shuriken Clone Jutsu!" The single weapon suddenly becomes dozens as it clones itself, and Ai is forced to leap into the air. You notice that as she throws kunai to dodge with, there are always wires attached. Whenever she lands, she grabs one of these wires and ties it to another. All around the perimeter of the clearing, kunai are thudding into the trees high above. It looks as though a web is being formed. Several shuriken embed themselves in her body, but they're superficial wounds.Mitsuki growls in frustration and rushes after her. She forms a clone jutsu, but seems to use additional handsigns for some reason. The clones meet his charge.Mitsuki throws a single kunai through the clone, and to him, it must look as if Ai leaps through the smoke. But from your perspective, you can see that she's somehow produced another clone through the first. The real Ai focuses Chakra to the soles of her feet, and launches herself skyward, hidden by the smoke. She hooks her ankles on the wires above, and hangs completely upside down. She forms a few different handseals and looks directly down at Mitsuki, as he whiffs his strike on the second clone and seems completely confused. She simply mumbles the name of her jutsu as to not draw attention.A blue ball of electricity flies forth from her hands as she thrusts them forward, and it explodes as it strikes the ground where Mitsuki was standing, impacting him directly.-------That's all for tonight folks. I'll be around for questions for a short while, hope you had fun.
>>42860588Guys.I think Ai just earned a spot in the Takeshibowl.
>>42860588Well thanks for running.
>>42860588Holy shit, how is Ai still considered weak? Girl's almost canon kid level powerful.>>42860621We at minimum need to train with her more. Kichiro too.
>>42860588man why is it the quiet girls of Naruto that are the best
>>42860588Well shit, archiving now boss >>42860621>not a Hyuuga Shit taste confirmed
>>42860621That's what I've been saying all along!Also we can combine our water with her lightning to make laser release.
Thread has been archived http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Boruto
>>42860686hell are water lets us really work with both wellwe do a simple water jutsu to flood the ground and Ai electrifies it orKaichiro does a fireball jutsu we do a water ball jutsu and we make a steam smoke screen
>>42860743Team Attacks Bruh.They are the way, the light, the truth.
>>42860743We need an attack that combines all 3. Just to fuck people up. Ionized hyper energy discharge. Make a PPC jutsu.
>>42860621How exactly? She's just being our squad mate.
>>42860876Anon believees power is sexy I guess. I don't agree with th romance, but I do agree we need to spend more time with her and Kichiro. Teambuilding and helping each other get better.
>>42860852It's simple.Create huge amounts of high density steam with water and fire release. Then AI electrifies it.
>>42860908Dude, ___________plasma attacks___________________
>>42860876That kind of "mad skills" to use the vernacular HAS to have a genetic component to it.
Hey Mini! Stat Takeshi now pls?
>>42860968>Shit compared to everyone else.
>>42860990I meant numerical stat, dippy.
>>42860990Except he's leagues smarter, stop being salty anon.
>>42861039This is Naruto being smart isn't exactly the best stat. Just.. look at Naruto.
Ninjutsu: 2.0Taijutsu: 1.5Genjutsu: 2.0Intelligence: 3.5Strength: 1.5Speed: 1.5Stamina: 1.5Hand Seals: 2.0 Chakra Control: 2.5 (This isn't a stat but I'll add it to show it. When comparing the total, remember that everyone else will have a couple of points too since I'm adding this stat into consideration)Total: 18
>>42861112Damn. We suck more than I thought.No wonder we're getting stomped in this exam.
>>42861112We really need to work out hard after the exam. What are Mitsuki's thought right now?
>>42861151>>42861188Hate to be that guy. But everyone else is growing stronger at easier rates. We'll always be behind anons.
>>42861202then stop bitching at us and ask Mini what the fuck is up. Regardless we really need a hard body training course to level our physical stats plus taijutsu.
>>42861234We know what's up. We're average. Everyone else is a snowflake.
>>42861234We're a regular guy in a world of super speshal snowflake mary sues.That's the goddamn point of the quest.
>>42861188>>42861188Ninjutsu: 3.0Taijutsu: 2.5Genjutsu: 2.5Intelligence: 3.0Strength: 1.5Speed: 2.0Stamina: 2.0Hand Seals: 2.0 Chakra Control: 2.0Total: 20.5
>>42861283I asked thoughts, not stat but cool.
>>42861283oh I just realized he said thought and not though, as in, "what are mitsuki's stats, though?" his thoughts right now are "Ow" He hasn't had time to really think about the situation at hand. Surprise is his general demeanor
>>42861202Then we'll just have to be smarter....We're relying on the intelligence of tg. We are completely doomed.
>>42861283So Takeshi is just as strong but smarter than mitsuki. He outclasses us in everything else. Sucks but eh. Wonder how our teammates stack up.
>>42861311we have better chakra control. he only has a 2.5 point lead on us
>>42861303i feel this is the right time for thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXU8w336oGs
>>42861322Yep missed that. But like I said eh we aren't special just got that underdog secret.
>>42861303What is smart?And why is smart?
>>42861339I think the biggest issues we have is not our stats which are decent if nothing to write home about, it's the fact our family has no special talent like almost all the others do. To amount to anything we're going to have to be crazy driven like Orochimaru or Kankuro.
>tfw no one would be asking you for stats if I hadn't decided to include themSorry, Mini
>>42861112I think we should put more focus in genjutsu. We work well with it.
>>42861489It's fine, it's what the wiki uses so it's a good method of comparing
>>42861494We need to get everything up to 2.0 at least.
>>42861517We don't. Upgrading irrelevant stats is a waste of our time.
>>42861630>Being well balanced>Bad
>>42861630>>42861630>implying we never ever ever use those skillsanon speed factors into ALL our actions. Endurance is our hp and to a lesser extent our chakra reserves. Strength affects how fast and how hard we can throw things. We will need them, additionally having not shit taijutsu might save us from being completely wasted if someone closes on us fast, which is highly likely in the tournament.We at least need basic competence in all areas if we don't wan to get rekt.
>>42861972soon follow twitter for updates otherwise
>>42861630>irrelevantDo you know why we keep getting our fucking ass beat?Because of minmaxing dumbfucks like you.We can't fight our way out of a wet paper bag because you faggots keep calling it "irrelevant".
>>42862048We only get our ass beat by super speshul snowflakes.Who are always going to beat our ass.
>>42862160Snake made us his fucking bitch.
>>42862211Several years of experience.
>>42862223This is the Chunin exam, anon.He's a Genin, same as us.
>>42862250He is two years older than you, though. Most are Genin for a couple of years before entering the Chunin exams.You've been a Genin for a month or two
>>42862275All the more reason we need to work on getting baseline competence all around. Because if a Genin with two years of experience can smack us down like that, and we somehow miraculously make Chuunin, we will be in WAY over our head on every single mission.But noooooo, /tg/ would rather stay hilariously incompetent at everything.
Explosives have proven to be incredibly useful, so why don't more ninjas make a habit of carrying around the more orthodox versions of explosives such as bombs?
>>42862160Except we could easily have dropped Mari in our fight if we hadn't let up and pulled out dead even against Shikadai. We don't have access to the unique family Justus or specialties, to compensate our core stats need to be good all the way around. Several big name people started off like we did, they busted their asses to become big names. Same principal.>>42862316Expensive as hell. Poison is cheaper and just as under used.
>>42862329Is it possible to infuse poisons with genjutsu?
>>42862329Most of those big names also had famous teachers though
>>42862358Hallucinogenic poisons anon>>42862360True, still not all of them, also sometimes the teacher and student were so different in style and technique it was painful. Like Orochimaru and the Third.
>>42862160Anon, you are voting to be lazy.Being lazy is how we wind up more outclassed than Rock Lee.We need to BUST OUR ASS for everything.We CAN'T AFFORD to be bad at anything, because we don't have any special bloodline shit to make up for it.If bloodline fuckers are Newtypes, we need to become Yazan Gable.We need to be able to go head-to-head with them by being just that good.And the only way to get there is by grinding up ALL of our stats.
>>42862498But we'll never grind up that high because we have a social and family life.To even come close we'd need to spend every spare second training.
>>42862541But we can sure as hell not leave ourself with glaring weaknesses because of some retarded attempt at min-maxing.
>>42862541Still strength speed endurance and taijutsu are hardly irrelevant. We need to be better at them, and we're going to train them.
>>42862160>We only get our ass beat by super speshul snowflakes.>Who are always going to beat our ass.You see this guy?This guy is Tenshinhan.He's a normal human (with the exception of they eye, point is he has a normal human statline).In Dragonball.He does THIS:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv2HySEAIskTo Cell. One of the most overpowered villains in the entire series. And he kept him pinned there.So don't give me that "We'll never be able to do anything against the snowflakes" defeatist crap.
>>42862607I have the pic for that!
>>42862628>>42862607...Wonder how Takeshi would look with three eyes.
>>42862688Like Tienshinhan. With hair.
>>42862607>>42862628"Are you done? Because I'm coming out. And I swear to God, if you do that again, I will be so freaking nettled!""Kikoho."
>>42862724"Kikoho is a poor choice of last words." "Ki-Ko-Fuck yourself."
>>42862724>>42862738Is it weird that I honestly think the abridged version of that scene did a better job of capturing just how big a deal it is that this guy, this (comparatively) feeble little human, is holding this horrifying monster at bay through sheer, stubborn, bloody-mindedness, and a disregard for his own well being if it keeps other people safe?
>>42862738"Ah there it is.""how durable is he? How durable am I? Questions for later."
>>42862783The abridged series does many things better
>>42862160We need this reason for building our righteous anger.>Snowflakes beat us and taunt us?Get angry>Still beating you?Get super angry>Taunt you with their signature movehulk smash that shitWe never seen Takeshi getting angry yeah?Pray that he never will
>>42861112Holy shit we're worthless aside from plans. Chakra control aside, our total is actually the same as Sakura's first set of stats. Considering she was specifically great at chakra control, her stats were actually higher than ours.
>>42863323Man, we should really take advantage of Hanto's Taijutsu experience, then, at least as far as the Eight Gates are concerned. Raising our Speed, Taijutsu and Stamina to at least 2.0 would be great, and we wouldn't even need Strength all that much if we got a gauntlets + poison combo. Fast, constant hits delivering poison would probably do just as much damage as stronger (albeit slower) hits would.
