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 night in the Forest of Death.
Dust and debris cloud your sight from Mitsuki's position. You're guessing that after that attack he can't be fairing too well, though. Ai expertly positioned herself above him, using the wires as a means of altering the terrain. She seems to have taken Hanto's advice regarding vigilance to heart, as well. She flips up and rests on the wires, looking like a spider glaring down at a fly. Her eyes are intense and focused, trying to peer through the cloud. The breeze slowly blows it away. In Mitsuki's place is a mound of mud, glittering occasionally with a spark of electricity. Next to you, the wounded Kichiro scoffs. "Geez, what a guy. When he made the mud clones, he must have left one in hiding just in case he might need a substitution. How he managed to prepare it between the time he released himself from the wires and Ai's attack, though, I've got no idea." You search all around you, trying to get a bead on Mitsuki's position. Somehow, the Genin has managed to completely elude your sight, despite Kichiro and you staring the entire time. High above you, above Ai, even, a light sigh escapes the snake-like boy's lips. Looking up, you see him on top of a high branch, looking down at Ai.
>>42961831https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5FeKFKLvwAHe's glaring at her like a spider looking at a fly. He frowns, and brings his hands up to form a single handseal. It's the seal of the Snake. He holds it for a few moments, and your squad looks up in earnest. What could he have to gain by revealing himself to you all when he had the advantage of stealth, you wonder? He shuts his eyes and breathes in deeply, before exhaling slowly. "Takeshi. Ai. Kichiro. I'm sorry. I'm...too friendly of a person for the battlefield. My heart just isn't in it. That's why I've invented this jutsu. I didn't think that I was going to have to use it against you three, but, that's just the case.." The boy preforms several handseals, and quietly states the name of his technique. "Mammalian Suppression Jutsu." After a short tense moment, nothing happens. You wonder if you or your team has been placed in some sort of Genjutsu, but there's nothing around you that would suggest that. The only change is in Mitsuki himself. He slightly shifts his stance, bending the knees and drawing a kunai. The way his eyes scan over your squad suggest something sinister. Something you haven't seen since your fight with Makoto. It's deadly intent. He glances to your injured friend, Kichiro, and slowly drags a strangely long tongue over dry lips, which curl into a devious smile. Suddenly Mitsuki bursts forward with Shunshin, making a beeline for Kichiro. What do you do?>A. Leap and grab Kichiro, pulling him out of the way>B. Shunshin and meet Mitsuki's charge>C. Throw shuriken to try and deflect Mitsuki>D. Write-in
>>42961946>>B. Shunshin and meet Mitsuki's charge
>>42961946>D. Use the False Place to make it look like Kichiro's leaping up and away
>>42961946>B. Shunshin and meet Mitsuki's charge
>>42962004He's coming at you too fast, you don't have the time to do the handseals. Even if you did he'd still already be in a mid-air charge, so he couldn't change his course if he wanted to
>>42962020No, but he might not be expecting whatever follow-up Kichiro would do.
>>42961946He just accessed the reptilian part of his brain!Genjutsu is useless against a reptilian mind!Hit him with...shit do we know any attack jutsus at all?>A. Leap and grab Kichiro, pulling him out of the way>B. Shunshin and meet Mitsuki's charge>C. Throw shuriken to try and deflect MitsukiWe can't do all three?Push Kichiro out of the way, go at Mitsuki with a volley of shurikens.
>>42961946Hey Mini, what do we look like again? Matter of fact, what does our entire team look like?I've forgotten.>A. Leap and grab Kichiro, pulling him out of the wayKeeping Kichiro from getting murdered is priority one.
>>42962063I don't have any sort of standard description for Takeshi, nor is there a canon one so far. If you guys agree on something that'd be it.Kichiro is 5'7 and fairly well built for his age. He has the physique of a kid who does a lot of physical labor. Tan skin. Navy-bluish black hair that's slicked back, and somewhat spiky. He has his bandanna over his forehead, He's wearing a navy blue vest with a white-T underneath, and standard blue shinobi pants and shoes. Ai is 5'1, thin, has straight black hair that goes down to her waist. She's got pale skin and big dark, doe-like eyes. She normally has her bandana around her arm, but right now it's around her forehead. >>42962042You can't do all three because you only have time to do one action.
>>42961946>A. Leap and grab Kichiro, pulling him out of the wayDamn Min. I thought you and laze are dead. Thank god i was wrong
>>42962158>You can't do all three because you only have time to do one actionAs a fellow QM, I can't tell you how many times I have to explain that.
>>42961946>>A. Leap and grab Kichiro, pulling him out of the way
>>42962158Takeshi should wear some green and black to counter all that blue.Wear out bandana to cover our hair.
>>42962158I want Takeshi to be a fat black man with a nappy afro and a strong underbite.
>>42962245not average enough, can't let it fly>>42962240forgot to mention that Ai wears full black. Long sleeve shirt, and black shinobi pants. Very boring attire
>>42962240I can dig this. Naturally the headband would hide some tricky surprise item or weapon of course.
>>42962268Right. And long sleeves for more weapons.Maybe gloves too.
>>42962266Ok, let's be 100% grey.Medium grey hair, dark grey clothes, very pale skin, androgynous features. Maybe have blue eyes to suggest our water nature chakra and suggest our chill personality.Maybe get some sound ninja grey camo in there too.
>>42962266Brown hair, dull grey blue eyes, and has a thinner build. Always looks tired and has dark bags under his eyes.Skin tone is a light tan. In between Kichiro's tan and Ai's paleness.
>>42962158That's some ridiculously tall 12-year-olds
>>42962240I can get behind the green and black.Im thinking, maybe a green shirt, Black tactical vest thing over it, grey-green shorts, just over the knees? Maybe gloves or arm bands?
>>42962476Well, Kichiro's 13. Everyone has hit a really early growth spurt, though.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIOXMbpbuH4Seeing no other option than to protect your team-mate, you focus chakra into the soles of your feet and explode upwards. The rush of the forest air around you blasts your hair backwards, and you draw a kunai from your pouch and clash with Mitsuki mid-air. Your weapons spark off one another, and you're both sent flying back. You land on the branch you departed from, and the enemy flips through the air towards the ground. Seeing an opportunity, Ai leaps from her position and grasps Mitsuki from behind, locking his arms in place and intending on crashing him headfirst into the ground. She flips upside down so that his head is pointed to the earth, but something strange happens. Mitsuki's body seems to stretch and twist just as his neck had done a few moments before, and he loosens his bones and joints to completely elude Ai's grasp. His body curls around her like a constricter boa, and they hit the ground hard, a bundle of flesh. Dust settles a moment later, and they both seem unharmed, although it looks as if Ai is having the life squeezed out of her. What do you do? >A. Attack with poisoned Senbon. >B. Leap down and start stabbing Mitsuki's exposed flesh.>C. Ask Kichiro if he can do anything to help>D. Write-in
>>42962476Kichiro is like our Joseph Gribble
>>42962536>False Sound to teammates>He's becoming more and more like a snake. >Snakes are cold blooded. Anyone got any ice moves?
>>42962536>A. Attack with poisoned Senbon.>>42962496If we're as average as we seem to be, I'd pin Takeshi as 1,43 m. That'd make him roughly 30 cm shorter than Kichiro and 10 cm shorter than Ai
>>42962536>B. Leap down and start stabbing Mitsuki's exposed flesh.I don't want to risk throwing at his snakey body while he's grappling a teammate.
>>42962583We would know if they did
>>42962536>C. Ask Kichiro if he can do anything to help>D. Write-inAsk kichiro for large fire.Poison senbo is useless here unless you want Ai to get poisonedbtw min, do we know that he's going reptile?
>>42962536>A. Attack with poisoned Senbon.
>>42962583We KNOW they dont,, thats a dumb question.>>42962536>B. Leap down and start stabbing Mitsuki's exposed flesh.
>>42962536>B. Leap down and start stabbing Mitsuki's exposed flesh.And be very careful about it. We don't want to injure our own Teammate.
>>42962634Shooting fire at him has the same problem throwing needles would, only worse
>>42962536>B. Leap down and start stabbing Mitsuki's exposed flesh.
>>42962615Really, I just shit out some numbers without really thinking about it. For height, just imagine thisKichiro: very tall for his ageAi: ShawtyTakeshi: Average>>42962634He's not going reptile. You don't know what he did. He could already stretch his limbs before he used the MSJ.
>>42962662not on them, just barely above.To scare mitsuki.>>42962673Can we use our intelligence to analyze?
>>42962536Use false sound Justin to make him hear a paper bomb ignition sequence going on in an area he can't see, and move in to stab at him when he moves.
>>42962694Could we use false sound to make him think Ai placed a paper bomb on him in an area he can't see?
>>42962673>Ai: ShawtyShe is pretty much average height for a 12 year old girl.
>>42962694So Mitsuki thinks we would just incinerate our own teammate?
>>42962536>False Sight of them attacking but in reality seeing how he moves when they do attack.
>>42962762Disregard the numbers I gave you
>>42962762What are you huh, some sort if expert and 12 year old's huh? Is that what you are pal?
>>42962694>Just wasting chakra shooting fire above himThats even dumber
>>42962794Remember that girls hit their growth spurt at 11, so they tend to be a bit taller than boys around 11-12
>>42962630>>42962642>>42962652>>42962667Again, you jump headfirst into the fray. You keep the kunai that you had drawn out and land on Mitsuki's soft, pale flesh. Each of his limbs is like a snape unto itself, and you start to stab and slash at his exposed bits. Instantly, the flesh writhes around in retaliation. It doesn't seem to loosen it's grip on Ai as it bleeds profusely, instead just changing in some way. From the mess of flesh, Mitsuki's head bursts forth. His snake-like fangs snap at you repeatedly from his extending neck, and you have to weave your way around him attacks. Looking down, you can see that Ai's face is slowly turning blue-ish. It doesn't seem like there's much time at all to free your friend. You pepper Mitsuki's body with slashes and cuts all while avoiding the bites, but it seems like your work is too slow to make any progress. Panic overtakes you as you're unsure of what to do in this situation. Thankfully, Kichiro leaps down beside you, and rushes forward. He grapples with Mitsuki's neck and head, holding it in place as you leap back onto the snake's body. You find his torso and stab into it solidly, one time. The snake-like limbs retract in an instant, freeing Ai and forming back to just under Mitsuki's head, so that Kichiro is choking him out.Ai gasps in pain, trying to fill her lungs. She's going to be disabled for a few moments. Meanwhile, Kichiro has brought Mitsuki to his knees, grinning wildly as he feels he's conquered his opponent. Then, a snake slithers from Mitsuki's sleeve. What do you do? >A. Yell for Kichiro to release him and get away.>B. Throw a senbon at the snake, and try to pin it in place before it can reach your friend.>C. Use Shunshin to dash forward and punch Mitsuki with all of your strength, knocking him away and keeping Kichiro safe.>D. Write-in
>>42962960>B. Throw a senbon at the snake, and try to pin it in place before it can reach your friend.
>>42962960>>A. Yell for Kichiro to release him and get away.>B. Throw a senbon at the snake, and try to pin it in place before it can reach your friend.
>>42962960>C. Use Shunshin to dash forward and punch Mitsuki with all of your strength, knocking him away and keeping Kichiro safe.very,very tempting
Alright, I compiled some possible looks for Takeshi based on some of the descriptions in this thread.Personally, my ranking would be A > C > B >>> D, but I honestly drew "tired looking" Takeshi waaay too tired looking, so that's my bad.
>>42962960>Snag the snake with senbons on a wire and hit Mitsuki with his own snake
>>42963053D made me laugh.I'd combine B and C. With A's hair.
>>42963053Lets just have a plain grey coat. The camo makes us stand out too much.
>>42963142Grey and black? Past waist length please. We got weapons and scrolls to hide.
I really,really hope that Mitsuki have a scroll if we defeat him.Otherwise he is just there to waste our time and energy
>>42963175I doubt it, He's on Sarada's team, no way she'd let the other 2 hold it.
>>42963188GodWhat are we even fighting him for?
>>42963202he attacked us first
>>42963202Because he decided to be a prick and wouldn't let us leave.
You throw a single senbon at the snake, and the needle pierces it's body and sticks itself into Mitsuki's calf. The Genin glares at you with hatred, and resorts to another method of attack. His arms extend so that they wrap around Kichiro's neck, and pulls him back. Moments later Kichiro's grip is pulled free, and the situation is turned over. Mitsuki's face is blank as he chokes Kichiro. You start to rush forward to help, but a puff of smoke to your left distracts you. It's where Ai had been just a moment before. You're confused as to where she's gone, until the sight of a tiny mouse skittering past your foot makes you realize her plan. The rodent moves past the dead snake and climbs up Mitsuki's leg, before leaping up and transforming back into Ai. Mitsuki turns his head backwards, looking shocked. "How did you recover so quickly!?" Your friend doesn't respond as she lands on his back, clinging. Mitsuki's head starts to extend away, but she grabs onto his hair and pulls his rubbery neck backwards. She shrieks like a banshee and raises her head up, before bringing it down and chomping on Mitsuki's exposed jugular. Kichiro is released as a hot spray of blood coats the little girl, and she leaps down from his body. It looks like Mitsuki is going to bleed out. What do you do?>A. Search him to see if he has a scroll.>B. Go and heal him! He's just a kid, he doesn't deserve to die in this place.>C. Tell your team mates to keep your distance, and that it's probably a trick.>D. Write-in
>>42963258>C. Tell your team mates to keep your distance, and that it's probably a trick.Poison him just to be sure.
>>42963258>C. Tell your team mates to keep your distance, and that it's probably a trick.
>>42963258Goddamn Ai and her bites....i am beginning to like her.>C. Tell your team mates to keep your distance, and that it's probably a trick.last time he have mud clone as a substitute
>>42963258>>D. Write-inWhat the fuck Ai!? Don't want him to die but it's probably a trick right?
>>42963258>>C. Tell your team mates to keep your distance, and that it's probably a trick.
>>42963258>C. Tell your team mates to keep your distance.Wait until fifteen minutes after he stops twitching before searching him.
>>42961825I feel like a dick for asking but whatever happened to DMC quest?
>>42963258>C. Tell your team mates to keep your distance, and that it's probably a trick.>>42963325Yeah. I don't want him to die either, but we gave the fucker like a million chances, and I really doubt Orichimaru's kid is that vulnerable.He's trying to play us.
>>42963087I thought you said "Ai's hair." until just now lol. Whatever.>>42963142>>42963173
>>42963356It's on a brief hiatus for now. I wasn't sure what to do with it at the moment and this idea for a quest was really fresh in my mind. It's really a dick move on my part for suddenly switching to this, if anything. I'll return to it for sure, though, I love it too much to just drop it
>>42963376A Just makes me think of the Persona 4 protagonist.
>>42963420I totally understand where you're coming from with that, Mini. Don't feel bad.I'm loving this quest so much.
>>42963368That's some pretty meta knowledge bullshit though. We don't know anything that would lead us to believe he's any more powerful than just another powerful genin with a snake theme.>B. Go and heal him! He's just a kid, he doesn't deserve to die in this place.
>>42963376Gray hair is also too remarkable. I support either Black or Brown
>>42963474It's not all that remarkable considering we're in anime ninja land.Pink is a pretty normal color in this universe apparently, considering nobody is flabbergasted by people like Sakura.
>>42963258Fuggit. This guy convince me>>42963468>D. Write-inPoison him then>B. Go and heal him! He's just a kid, he doesn't deserve to die in this place.If he lied, we learn it hard
>>42963468I'd assume Orichimaru would be a pretty well known dude, considering he killed a Hokage and was a major player in the biggest event in the history of the village.
>>42963468Do we not have any flares as basic ninja equipment? You could just set one off and get the fuck out of there. And considering he's tricked us twice already, a third time isn't unusual.
>>42963258>>B. Go and heal him! He's just a kid, he doesn't deserve to die in this place.
>>42963531No one knows that Mitsuki is Orochimaru's son, actually.He's just an orphan as far as anyone is concerned.
>>42963560Oh. My bad.
Post will come in a moment guys, gotta do something real quick
>>42963258>C. Tell your teammates to keep your distance, and that it's probably a trick.If he dies, that's one less team to worry about in the next exam.
We really need to just grind stats once we've failed the exams. We should be the around the weakest in our graduating class if we compare ourselves to the previous generation, about the same as newly graduated Sakura and Ino.
>>42963828Ino had some good jutsu, Sakura didn't have anything going for her.
>>42963828By God, that comparisonYeah... we will grind our stats. Do some teamwork exercise and finish those medical booksIncrease social links as bonus?And annoy Mari
>>42963828Look, all we need to do is make it through one or two fights so we can get in the tournament.After that, we just need to display Chunin potential even if get our ass kicked.Plus we'll have a few months until then to just grind.
Kichiro looks down in shock at the severely wounded Genin, the blood on his face landing on the grass in droplets. "Woah, Ai.." The young girl wipes her mouth off, although it does little to remove the blood that she's drenched in. As you approach and look down at the twitching boy, grasping his throat, the smell of blood fills your nostrils. It's sickening, and you almost gag in response. Looking at Ai, you can see that she's still totally calm about the situation. More relaxed now, even, that Mitsuki isn't fighting back. Glacning at Kichiro, you can tell he's equally as freaked out as you are. Of course, it's still what needed to be done. You look down at Mitsuki. Should you heal him? Or wait a little bit? You turn to your team. "I think we should wait. This could be a trick, or a trap of some kind. If it's between us choosing to risk our lives or his..well, I think the answer is obvious." Kichiro rubs the back of his head. "Man, I guess so.." Ai nods. "That is correct. We can search him for the scroll once our safety is assured." ------Super sorry guys, something came up once more. I have to help with some stuff, but I'll only be gone for about an hour and a half. Been busy lately so it's been difficult to squeeze in time to run, but I'll continue later tonight. If this thread's here I'll use it, if not I'll make a new one. I plan to go late into the night.
>>42963900Damn. She is stone cold.Let's not make her mad at us. Ever.
>>42963828Oh stop moaning. Yes we're a bit under-powered. but stop moaning about it at every opportunity. We're still better than Sakura, because we actually know some Genjutsu. (Which was always the stupidest part of Sakura, we're told she's the 'Genjutsu type', yet never learns a single one.)I will complain that we don't seem to be capable of beating anyone in this exam. Mari's team beat the fuck out of us, then the Sand were clearly all better than us, and then Snake Solo'd us, and probably our team later on, and now Kid-Orochi basically took our entire team to get him down, and he's probably not even out.
>>42963853we're already ahead of Both of them as far as what were capable of at this point though
>>42963877The biggest issue is that we insisted on utility, and now we're thoroughly lacking when it comes to combat. If we had done more physical training and learned some taijutsu, our situation would be waaay better. I mean, sure, senbon, genjutsu and medical jutsu are good, but they don't really win battles unless we use great write-ins, and that hasn't really been happening lately. Taijutsu, speed and stamina would make Takeshi way more capable at combat, especially if we added poisoned gauntlets to the mix, reducing the importance of strength.
To be honest, I'd like us to be the jack of all trades and collect as many easy but under-utilized jutsu's and techniques as possible. I think our strength is flexibility.We're a problem solving ninja who just needs a nice big toolbox. I really like how we're progressing on that.
>>42963982The real issue is our lack of genjutsu. Sure, Taijutsu is utterl tanfastic early on and you can be amazing if you specialize in it, but then we'd be lacking in everything BUT straight combat. We've got Ai and Kichiro to handle combat for us, good allies we can rely on. All we have to do is get more battle-ready genjutsu and we'll be set.
>>42963900Its cool Minmin>>42963916Better yet, we should tease her>>42963982Poison gauntletUse poison senbo like wolverine+Shunshin straight to the enemy= Could workBut we need to substitute firstWe need more idea on how to use everything surrounds us like substituting clothes full of explosion tag
>>42963982I'm mostly going to disagree with you about our abilities. Utility is the most important thing for a survival round in the exam. I just wish we were actually good at the genjutsu shit. I mean in the manga, one of the mook teams was able to trap Naruto and co in an infinite forest Genjutsu to exhaust them, so what we're capable of seem just when we can make a single image and some noise. What you're suggesting seems to just be a different character.
>>42964026The thing is, can we really count on our teammates all the time? I mean, yeah, we could probably get really good at being support, but as a protagonist, I really think Takeshi will have to face more than a few challenges on his own, and being a decent fighter goes a long way towards achieving that goal. Honestly, I'm not against utility, or advocating for a pure taijutsu build, but focusing solely on utility while neglecting combat-related stuff can't be a good idea.
>>42964090One thing at a time. We just started out and the majority of our success have been Genjutsu related.
>>42964121There are genjutsu that can cause serious, game-changing debilitations to an opponents. While the Uchiha do have some of the best, there are plenty we can learn that will make our opponents blind, deaf, or whatever else, give them seizures, render them immobile, make them vomit, that kind of shit.
>>42964169He's right though we need a 2.0 or higher in every phys stat. Choji at our age is fater than us. fucking Choji.
>>42964135Yeah I get that, it's just when Kichiro can do some sort of Kaio-ken and Ai has some lightning attack, us not being able to combine our two low-level genjutsu seems really weak.
Learning chakra scalpel will definately boost our taijutsu, with our current knowledge of anatomy(which we still have to improve much), remember Kabuto.Other than that, improving basic stats, and learning more/better genjutsu is the way to go.
>>42964194That's fair. Speed should be one of our big focuses.Speed, Int, Genjutsu, Senbon, and Anatomy I think are our main priorities, as well as any utility jitsu.I actually don't think we need a "big punch" technique. We can just make sure to stock up on explosive tags and traps for that.
>>42964194To be fair, Choji was a physical combat specialist.
>>42964090As I said on >>42964121, I'm not advocating a complete and utter focus on taijutsu/physical stats, but a complete and utter focus on utility isn't ideal, either. Mixing the two would make Takeshi a lot stronger, IMHO. Healing himself after a tough battle with medical jutsu, implementing his use of poison on taijutsu, using genjutsu during CQC in order to confuse the enemy... man, that's right up Takeshi's alley. Yeah, some of that stuff hasn't been approached yet, but we're still at the chunin exams... there's still a LOT of time to shape the character's abilities. Nothing should be set in stone so soon.
>>42964240and? Speed was his weak point, we are incredibly slow for a ninja. It's a miracle Kichiro and takeshi are still breathing. In this world speed kills.
>>42964235I mentioned a couple of threads back that our "big punch" technique should be healing jutsu adapted to make enemies become cancer blobs.Maybe make their skin/muscles slough off at the barest touch from us.If we invest in that we can afford to neglect strength because it'll be redundant, allowing us to min-max a little bit.
>>42964349That seems a bit OP.
>>42964235i feel like we should work on strength a bit too, if only to make us able to last a bit longer if we do get into an up close and personal position
>>42964349Oooh, nice. Reminds me of Elixir from Marvel. That'd be a pretty complicated jutsu to pull off, though, wouldn't it?
>>42964349>>42964370>>42964402also sounds pretty horrifying
>>42964391It'd also help our throws. Endurance is our chakra pool, so we gotta level that too.
>>42964422Yeah. I'd have to say I want to avoid being a cancer mage if possible.But I do like the idea of medical techniques being used offensively. Even if we just have a technique that tires people out rapidly, or messes with their adrenaline or even emotions.
>>42964370In a world where literally every random chucklefuck has an unbeatable OP combination, I'd say we should look into it.
>>42964522looking into it is fine, maybe save it for a last resort. Our character hasnt been a fan of gore so far, but maybe eventually we could use it more often. it would definitely be a good weapon to have. >>42964518i like the tiring out idea, means its easier to take people alive if we have to, as well as easier for our teamates to wreck the enemies
>>42964522We will the the kryptonite to the Mary SuesThe Doctor Manhattan of the Watchmen
>>42964614>The Doctor Manhattan of the WatchmenShouldn't that be "The Ozymandias"?
>>42964644NahManhattan have godly powers while watchmen are ordinary humans with gadgetswe are the opposite

>>42964576Yeah. Tiring enemies, invigorating allies.We go even adrenaline up an enemy that uses a high concentration technique. Imagine some calm fucker losing their foot grip and falling out of a tree
>>42964907I like itWe are the buffmancers but what jutsu tho? or we are going chems and make pills?
>>42964932I say we learn how to unlock other people's chakras.Boost with their own power.
>>42964954OH MY GODAcupuncture technique with medical chakraWe might also make that acupuncture needles, the hair-like size.Oh yeah, this is good
>>42964932Literal Muscle wizard?
>>42964986Learn pressure points means we can start learning a variation of the soft hand style the Hyuugas use.
>>42965009Yes We will make our own Hyuuga style technique with senbos and acupuncture
>>42965009I like that. We'd have to get god-like accuracy though. Cutting off chakra is useful as hell though.Plus it would score us points with the Hyuga ladies
>>42964932i would rather jutsu, because of our family's tattoo thing, it could make or break using that last 5% to buff an ally. and pills would either be expensive monetarily, or run out in critical moments
>>42965074>Mari learns that we can manipulate chakra points at range, even without Byakugan>Calls us a lying cheating ugly little fucker>claims we're ripping off her clan's style, why such a bitch that can't make your own thing, fuck you Takeshi
>>42965106That is tsundere as fuck
>>42965106In other news>Himawari was impressed with us>ask us to train with her>Boruto/Sarada/Naruto just got jelly while Mitsuke smile at us
>>42965106>Tenten lose her sides so hard that it meet with sasuke in other dimension
I just hope people don't try become married to the idea of Takashi just pure support just so something that it can be something new. I mean Takeshi's stated goal was to become the best. That was why when he started out all of his skills were equal, because he couldn't stand to have a weakpoint or let one of his skills fall to the wayside.
>>42965351DUDUDUDUDUDUDUNI want to be the very best, that no ninja ever wasDun dun dun
>>42965351Yeah the whole support role shtick is incredibly boring.
Shitty OC Takeshi brought to you by me, some shitty naruto character creator on deviantart, and 5 minutes of my free time. YOUR'E WELCOME.
That all sounds well and good, but given the pace we've got for genjutsu, all that cancer stuff and all those other ideas are simply too far off. I'd honestly be surprised if this quest hasn't been abandoned by that point given current rates. That's also ignoring the fact that until we reach that point of it being useful, we're still goddamn useless when we're alone.
>>42965465hmm..not badNOW DO AI AND KICHIRO
>>42964090Actually that was an entirely different genjutsu technique from the false sound and false place jutsu. That was a genjutsu called the Sly Mind Effect Technique. It was a C-rank genjutsu and allow you to manipulate the sense of direction of whoever you used it on as you see fit. So you could constantly adjust it to make it seems like they are getting closer to something when they aren't. That can't be replicated by the False Place technique because it only creates a static image.
>>42965500Well heres Ai based on Minis description of her. Very boring, also all the faces come out the same in this shitty OC maker. Its a tad unnerving.
>>42965688That looks atrocious
>>42965688need to make the eyes 10x wider tho
>>42965688also why is she wearing all black? with a black belt? i always pictured her in white, although that doesnt make much sense for a ninja
>>42965760Mini described her in all black.>>42965728Hey man some guy in deviantart worked hard on this shitty Naruto Character Creator. SHOW SOME RESPECT.
>>42965500And heres Kichiro based on Minis description. This one was probably the most "difficult". Theres no way to change body shape so he doesn't look as bulky and there was no bandanna. Also not really any good option for slicked back hair so it looks spiky instead. Also the color blue that was available looks like utter shite.
>>42965688>>42965929Thank you, Good AnonYou've made me proud
>>42966015It's a dirty job, but someone had to do it.
bring that ass back boi
Alright, I'm back. Will be continuing shortly.
As Ai finishes her sentence, Mistuki stops his struggle. He looks up at the three of you and attempts to speak, although it's very soft. He's smiling, as strange as it is. "You were all very impressive tonight. I hate to say it, but the three of you were able to beat me. It's been fun, but I have to get back to my team, now. Enjoy your rest." Without warning, his jaw snaps open unbelievably wide, and what appears to be a copy of Mitsuki launches out from his gullet. This Mitsuki has the lower half of a massive brown snake, and he slithers into the earth with the Mole Hiding Technique and retreats. There's no trail of blood, so you assume that he's somehow healed himself.Looking down at what remains, it's little more than a warped corpse. What sort of technique was that? Your team all looks at each other. You surprisingly look relatively okay, if a bit tired. Ai is completely soaked in blood, and seems exhausted. Kichiro is bloodied and battered, but awake. You're at the base of a massive tree, with darkness all around you. What do you do?>A. Tell Ai that she needs to wash off. The blood could attract a predator.>B. Tell Ai to get some sleep, and that you and Kichiro will stand guard. >C. Heal Kichiro. >D. Write-in
>>42966925>C. Heal Kichiro. thenA thenB
>>42966925>>C. Heal KichiroGo wash up Ai. Use false sound to say you still have the scroll. You lied to try and stop the fight.
>>42966925>A. Tell Ai that she needs to wash off. The blood could attract a predator.>C. Heal Kichiro.
>>42967031She knows, she still went after him.
First thing's first, you roll up your sleeves. "We need to get organized. Kichiro, lie down and I'll heal you. Ai, you need to use what water we have to wash the blood off of you. If we don't then predators will surely come after us in the middle of the night, and I don't think that I have the physique or the arsenal to fend off a pack of tigers. I'd rather conserve energy, than rations, in this case. There are several streams running through the forest that we can get water from, and there's plenty of wild-life for us to use as breakfast." Ai nods. "I have chlorine tablets to purify the water, to prevent diarh-" Kichiro sits down, and intentionally interrupts his squadmate. "Good thinking, Ai. That's going to be really useful. Here, you can have some of my extra water that I brought to wash up with." He hands her a canteen, and Ai looks down at it. She looks back up at the both of you. "I'll be back." You presume that she's going to wash up, as she walks around the other end of the tree. Some part tells you that it would be a death sentence to investigate.
>>42967301Kichiro lays down, and you slowly start to heal his wounds. He chuckles. "Good stuff, being able to heal. Heh, we'd probably have already lost, if it wasn't for that. Or at least, I wouldn't be able to keep fighting like I have been." You laugh. "Well, this sure hasn't been easy. We're getting by, though." Kichiro grins widely. He reaches up and grasps your arm tightly, with surprising strength. He leans forward slightly, and his grin goes ear to ear. "Getting by? We're kicking ass! Think about every Genin squad that's failed so far! How many of these kids have gone up against the impossible, and lost. We've been doing it again and again, here. At this rate, we'll win before we lose! We beat that kid, I beat that freak with the rock skin, we're gonna beat them all! Hahahahaha!" Your friend leans back, and you're a little surprised by his attitude. You've never seen him so fired up. >A. It feels more like surviving, to me. >B. I suppose you're right, considering how inexperienced we are, it's pretty wild we've gotten this far. >C. You're right! We're going to take it all the way, and complete the exam! >D. Write-in
Also, the more I see of Ai, the better she is. If she was like 10% less autistic, she'd be best girl. Surprisingly strong, wants to win badly, BITEY. It all works for me.
>>42967301Pretend you heard an enemy ninja and investigate.
>>42967320>>A. It feels more like surviving, to me.
>B. I suppose you're right, considering how inexperienced we are, it's pretty wild we've gotten this far.
>>42967328this option is not available as it'd mean the end of the quest, for certain
>>42967320>Pride comes before the fall Kichiro.>There are plenty of other nin here much stronger and probably have gotten two scrolls already.
>>42967320>B. I suppose you're right, considering how inexperienced we are, it's pretty wild we've gotten this far.keep the morale up
>>42967320>B. I suppose you're right, considering how inexperienced we are, it's pretty wild we've gotten this far. >We need to find a squad to take out fast though, this is only the beginning and I'd rather not be in the grinder the full time.
>>42967320>C. You're right! We're going to take it all the way, and complete the exam!
>>42967301>C. You're right! We're going to take it all the way, and complete the exam!although probably not
>>42967320>C. You're right! We're going to take it all the way, and complete the exam!BELIEVE IT!
>>42967320>B. I suppose you're right, considering how inexperienced we are, it's pretty wild we've gotten this far.
>>42967320>D. Write-inHey, Kichiro, do you think Ai is hot?
>>42967320>A. It feels more like surviving, to me. Then>B. I suppose you're right, considering how inexperienced we are, it's pretty wild we've gotten this far.
>>42967320>D. "Oh, by the way, I still have the scroll. I just didn't want Mitsuki to know that."
>>42967692we told them already with the false sound jutsu
>>42967365>>42967373>>42967349>>42967442You smile. "Well, I suppose you're right. Considering how inexperienced we are, it's impressive that we've made it this far. The Genin we've ran into so far, they're just unreal. I knew we would be going in over our heads, but this is ridiculous. Like you said, we've been kicking ass so far, haha. With a good night's rest, and some food, we'll be in top shape to win. No more surprise attacks, either." Kichiro nods. "That's right. Soon, we'll be in the finals. Can't you imagine it, Takeshi? A huge crowd, a stadium just for us. Everyone will see how we're great shinobi, and they'll know our names because we were the ones to make it to that point, above all the other hundreds who tried. There's nothing more that I want." You nod. "I feel the same way. But I don't just want to get to that point, to where I'm known." Kichiro raises an eyebrow. You grin down at him, as you finish healing. You give a thumbs up. "That's right. I want to be known as the best in the whole exam!" Kichiro chuckles. "Lofty ambitions all around.." Ai returns. She's cleaned of blood, although her hair is a little wet. She sits and leans against the massive tree, and sighs. "Thank you two for guarding me and giving me the chance to rest. I'm rather...exhausted..." The young girl falls asleep at that instant. You look to Kichiro. >A. So what happened between you and those Grass Ninja?>B. Do you have any plans for what we should do tomorrow?>C. If you want, one of us could go hunt for food. >D. Write-in
>>42967737>>A. So what happened between you and those Grass Ninja?>B. Do you have any plans for what we should do tomorrow?>D. No splitting up without a password and paper.
>>429677382/3 cowtits1/3 no tits3/3 cuteCheck my 3?
>>42967738She looks like Naruto with a gross matted, mangy dog mane for hair and tits.
>>42967737>A. So what happened between you and those Grass Ninja?>Volunteer to hunt>Hey, Kichiro, do you think Ai is hot?
>>42967737>A. So what happened between you and those Grass Ninja?>B. Do you have any plans for what we should do tomorrow?Advice and discussion is good, and I'm super curious what happened with the grass ninja.
>>42967737>A. So what happened between you and those Grass Ninja?And just do guy talk in general. Tell him about how were trying to get a Hyuuga girl, that'll make him laugh
>>42967737>A. So what happened between you and those Grass Ninja?
>>42967737>A. So what happened between you and those Grass Ninja?>C. If you want, one of us could go hunt for food.>D. You think Ai is hot or is that just me?
>>42967846We're not though
>>42967882We should be
>>42967737>>A. So what happened between you and those Grass Ninja?
>>42967775>>42967844>>42967845>>42967846>>42967858>>42967881>>42967941There are two options here guys. We can either do a flashback where I recount the entire Grass Ninja vs. Kichiro and Ai fight, or you can just have Kichiro's summarized version and move on with the main plot of the thread.
>>42967986Summary is fine.
>>42967986A summary is fine. We just need a general overview for any useful info
>>42967986>Kichiro's summarized versionkeep it simple
>>42967986summary is good
>>42967986Summary works. Lets hear it in Kichiro's voice.
>>42967986I hope Kichiros version is really over dramatic and intense. I'm talking Fast and the Furious with ninjas.
>>42968035man, i hope he includes sound effects
>>42968037I hope it's like pic related
"So what happened between you and those Grass Ninja? Just one of them seemed like enough of a threat. I'm sorry I couldn't help out.." Kichiro rubs the back of his head, and chuckles. "Don't sweat it, me and Ai had it covered. At least, she did mostly. I was pretty much just a distraction while she kept surprising them. That team, they're nothing normal. The one with the knife could turn straight up invisible, and there was another who had aim like I couldn't believe. He was coordinating the whole team, constantly telling them information about the jutsu we were using. Then the woman.." Kichiro shakes his head. "I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't see it, but the girl on their team is capable of using the First Hokage's Wood Style jutsu. It was lucky that my firestyle could match it, for a little while at least. She just had more chakra than I did, and more techniques. Takeshi, if you get put against the two guys, you could have a chance in one on one." He stands up, and stretches. "But the chick..E is her name. Just forfeit if you have to go against her. It's too much brute force for any of our squad.""I'll keep that in mind. Do you want me to go hunt?"Kichiro looks down, and yawns. "I think I will, actually. You're less likely to fall asleep, so you should watch guard. Plus you can set up traps if you feel like it. I'll be back in a bit." >A. Will you set up traps in the immediate area? >B. Simply keep watch. You don't want to move around too much, and waste energy. You'll be up through most of the night.>C. Use the Clone Jutsu to create clones of yourself, and send them to the nearby areas. You'll be able to sense when they're destroyed, but not which one. This will give you an idea of when an enemy or predator is coming, but not where.>D. Write-in
>>42964614>The Doctor Manhattan of the Watchmen>while watchmen are ordinary humansGod.Dammit.There was no group called "The Watchmen" in Watchmen.The title of the comic is a literary allusion to the phrase "Who watches the watchmen?", one common translation of "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" from Juvenal's Satires.The original team of masked vigilantes (operating between '39 and '49) were the "Minutemen" and the second team (operating from '67 to '77) were called the "Crimebusters".The generic term used throughout the book for costumed vigilantes is "Mask".
>>42968137>A. Will you set up traps in the immediate area? >C. Use the Clone Jutsu to create clones of yourself, and send them to the nearby areas. You'll be able to sense when they're destroyed, but not which one. This will give you an idea of when an enemy or predator is coming, but not where.If both are possible, if not, then just A
>>42968201>>42968234I'm good with this
>>42968137>A. Will you set up traps in the immediate area?
>>42968137>B. Simply keep watch. You don't want to move around too much, and waste energy. You'll be up through most of the night.I think B might be (heh) the best option here. We've been blowing through chakra, and all of our gear, repeatedly. Plus we don't want Kichiro accidentally stumbling into a trap as he hunts/when he returns. Just wait close to Ai.
You decide that you might as well be prepared as possible, so you set up traps around the area. It's more simple kunai and wire traps, but they'll suffice for surprise attacks and alarms. When you return to Ai, you sit down and cross your legs. You rest for a short while as you focus, and attempt to garner complete control over your chakra in order to increase the efficiency of your Clone Jutsu. The energy swirls around you as you utilize the technique, and suddenly two dozen illusionary clones appear in front of you. You direct them all to take up posts in the forest around you, as a secondary alarm system. Not to mention they could aid in a fight later down the line. You sit down, and take a breather. You're enjoying this calm rest. Time passes, more than two hours. You wonder where Kichiro has gone. Looking over, you can see that Ai is gently asleep. Suddenly, you hear one of your traps in the forest go off. What do you do?>A. It's probably Kichiro coming back. I should go lead him through the traps.>B. If it's an enemy, I should stay here with Ai. >C. Write-in
>>42968391Get to a better vantage point, set up a few bells to wake Ai remotely if need be.

>>42968547Her mouth looked funny to me. So did the rest of her face.
>>42968567I just hate her hair so much. It makes me angry.
You leap up into the trees, and decide to try and get the best vantage point you can. You make sure that you can keep a watch on Ai as you move out and investigate the noise. Looking down from above, you can see a bright orange, massive tiger, with a kunai sticking out of it's midsection. It looks angry, and it happens to spy a clone of you that's nearby.It rushes forward and roars as it tackles it. Something tells you that this thing doesn't like you, now. It's fairly close to the camp. What are you going to do?>A. Throw some poisoned senbon at it. It will ruin the meat, but kill it for sure.>B. Lead it through your traps, and pepper it with shuriken.>C. Stay high up in the trees and try to aim well enough to kill it with one kunai.>D. Write-in
>>42968602Look at that shit. It's like it's sitting on top of her head.>>42968629That ain't so bad.
>>42968629It's like she got her hair cut by a blind guy with down syndrome who lost his hands in the retard wars and has to hold the scissors with his teeth.
>>42968651>>C. Stay high up in the trees and try to aim well enough to kill it with one kunai.
>>42968651>C. Stay high up in the trees and try to aim well enough to kill it with one kunai.
>>42968651>D. Write-inTry to position ourself so we can lure it under us, then drop down on it to bury a kunai in its spine, right below where it meets the skull.Make it a quick, clean, relatively painless kill.
>>42968651>C. Stay high up in the trees and try to aim well enough to kill it with one kunai.We're a ninja
>>42968679Pfahaha! No good trying to rig the vote, Tiger. We actually do have the aim to pull it off with one kunai. We're gonna kill you and eat you.
>>42968741Can we keep the eye?It will be my fetish.
>>42968775We keep the pelt and we're it around Hercules style.
>>42968775Stay away from my eyeballs, Cowboy.S'not my fault they pretty.
The creature is already injured, so you want to try and finish this quickly so that you can put it out of it's misery. Not to mention tiger meat just might be tasty, if you cook it right. You know how to make a spit and Kichiro will be able to construct a fire, so you simply have to wait until the morning to eat. The only thing that you have to do is cleanly kill it. You draw a single kunai from your weapon's pouch, and stand up. You hold it high above your head as you stare down, and focus on your target. You calm your breathing as much as you can, and estimate the rough distance between you and your target by measuring points between the two of you. If your rough height compared to a branch is a meter and a portion tall. The nearby branch is roughly 2 meters, and so for every two branch segment of distance you have to adjust the arc of your throw upward by an equal measure, to adjust. All around you the forest is still, and the night is dark. You flick your wrist forward and the metal flies, soaring down like an arrow intil it pins the tiger between the eyes, the blade slipping into it's brain and killing it cleanly. The tiger drops to the ground, dead. It's a clean kill.----That's going to be all for tonight folks. I'll be sticking around to answer some questions, though, and I hope everyone had a good time.
>>42968829Woo! Tiger meat!
>>42968829Thanks for running! No we have meat, where the fuck is Kichiro? Also that tiger won't be going poof on us will it? Not mid controlled by a cat clan member either?
>>42968887Kichiro is still out in the forest, near a pond. He's getting food too. And yes, the tiger is yours.
>>42968775If that wasn't an 'Eye of the Tiger' reference, I'mma be sad.>>42968829Thanks for running Mini! Was awesome. We have food, the chance to rest and regroup, and a few more days yet. We're in with a chance!
>>42968829Welp. That's cousin Vinnie dead.Good riddance. Bitch owed me money....So, we're skinning him next thread, right?
>>42968902This was only the first night, anon. You have SIX days. Unless you can get a scroll before then.
>>42968829 Don't archive the quest Mini. No seriously some anti Naruto fag is downvoting Leaf quest.
>>42968815I will let you know, there will be a Tiger spirit in HYWQ, but not because of you, I just like the Chinese Zodiac.>>42968902That and a joke on the dual meanings of "fetish".
>>42968920>Only day one>All the weaker teams are being eliminated>We'll end up facing off against the best of the best for scrolls
>>42968920So, is our aim finally reaching the 'Damn son' levels?
>>42968952It was an impressive shot, but nothing someone like Mari couldn't casually do.
>>42968977She's a Hyuga. Being impressed with Byakugan aim is like being impressed with the hand-eye coordination of an Uchiha.
>>42968977So where were Sarada and Boruto if Mistuki was here?
>>42968977Our best is this generation's mediocre!We're progressing!
>>42969018Sleeping. Boruto had a clone standing watch. Mitsuki had already slept and was bored, so he went wandering, and found you.
>>42969016You'd think there'd be some sort of super long-range Uchiha sniper type of character or line.
>>42968977Given she has the Byakugan and was presumably trained by her mom in weapon sue, the fact we can even make shots at half her level is good for a nobody.>>42969053So if we moved faster we could run into one of the other s or worse yet all of them? What was their reactions to the fight?>>42969067there probably was, before they got Itachi'd.
>>42969053So did Mitsuki really think he could solo our whole team?
>>42969086So did we for a second, don't blame him.
>>42969086He thought so when he had his snake. After that he was mostly just biding his time, checking you out, but then he realized he was in danger once the three of you attacked him. He waited to use a jutsu to escape and conserve his strength, rather than risk it.He gained some information on you guys.
>>42969127I take it he's not hurt at all?What did he think about the fight? Sarada's and Boruto's reactions?The puppeteer still having a bad day?
>>42969180He had to use a jutsu that costed a considerable amount of chakra to retreat, but he's safe, and resting. By the time he's asleep his team will awaken.The Sand team is actually at the tower, They acquired someone else's scroll. Kagami is healing well.
>>42969237What other teams are at the tower?
>>42969250A bunch. A lot of Genin were eliminated in the first day, and thusly a lot passed in the first day. The amount of Genin in the forest has decreased considerably.
>>42969237Is he going to be able to get another snake?>>42969270Any generics left?
>>42969289He'll get another snake. And there are more generic shinobi in the forest, but I won't say exactly how many.
>>42969325So who was the first team at the tower?
>>42969380The Mist team.
>>42969391Which mist team? There were several.
>>42969127Did we increase Mitsuki's opinion/respect?
>>42969391Has anyone we've met died?
>>42969402The only one that made it. >>42969412Somewhat.>>42969422Nope, most people have gotten close though
>>42969487So how's our teams health and fatigue right now?
>>42969487Snow team the only team from their country in the Chūnin Exams?
>>42969538Kichiro is healed and awake, Ai is sleeping and healthy, and you're awake and healthy. You're hungry, but Kichiro is coming back with food, and you caught a tiger.>>42969551Correct
>>42969560When next thread?
>>42969589oh well, better late than never.Get some rest minmin, you earn it
>>42969560Kichiro's fw a fucking tiger is sitting there with a Kunai in its face?
>>42969589So how much respect will we get if we pass this thing to the tourney?
>>42969614>"Hey guys i got some foo....">Takashi is innocently gutting and skinning the Tiger
>>42969589How's our tool supply looking? Hanto expecting us to pass?
>>42969614He'll be surprised>>42969731You'll gather up your traps again and have your equipment. You've got six uses of poison, bells, smoke bombs, and an explosive tag. Hanto thinks it's a gamble.
>>42970294>explosive tagDidn't we use it on the snake? And where's our flash bombs?Any people we know in this knocked out of the competition?
>>42970294Is Himawari in the exams?
