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 second day in the Forest of Death.
Tonight I only have a couple of hours to run before I need to head out, so I'll be taking requests for "Filler" write-ups tonight.
>>43286634>TakeshiTakeshi's class study's the history of the 4th ninja war
>>43286634Takeshi learning to dodge, the hard way. Or us playing shogi with Shikadai.
>>43286634how canon is this "filler"
>>43286845Depends on each one
>>43286634Playing shogi would be fun
>>43286845>>43286860Example, if someone requested Takeshi ending up back in time or something and meeting historical figures of Naruto that'd most likely be non canon
>>43286634The Sensei of the teams all talking about and betting who will make it the farthest in the exam.
>>43286896that should be totally canon
>>43286907I'll be doing this one. Coming soon.
Takeshi's Parents, their final days.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAlNrtcPCLwIt's late in the afternoon, and Hanto has just returned from the mission regarding the escort of the Hidden Cloud prisoner, that resulted in being Makoto. Your sensei wonders what sort of form he's going to have to fill out to accurately explain all the shit that went down. He lights up a smoke as he steps through the gates of the Hidden Leaf, weakly waving to the guards. As he's trotting along, a voice calls down. It's resting on the edge of a building above him, and he covers his eyes with a hand to look. Through the glare of the sun, he can see Mirai's outline. The female Jounin leaps down, and lands beside Hanto. She seems serious. "You're back. Good. The Hokage is searching for this year's Genin Sensei, we all need to report there immediately." Hanto groans, rolling his neck back slightly as he exhales smoke into the air. "Come on, what is this? I have some actual work to be doing, what could Lord Hokage want.." Mirai starts walking away, leading him. She scoffs. "You already forgot? The Chunin exams are coming up." Hanto shrugs. "So what? My squad has only been Genin for a couple of months, they don't have the experience they need to compete. None of ours do." Mirai laughs. "Don't you remember how Lord Hokage's class was? They all took the Chunin Exams the first chance they had." Hanto grumbles. "That's right, and everyone failed except for Shikamaru Nara. And who would expect anything less from the head of the Nara clan?"Mirai looks over. "I heard that he wasn't so reputable at that time. He even lost his match, but apparently his superior tactics are what allowed him to pass." Hanto strokes his chin. "You mean, even though he failed, he passed because he proved he was as mentally capable as any Chunin? Hmm.."
>>43287146"I know that you're thinking of Takeshi." says Mirai. Hanto nods, shutting his eyes and inhaling on his cigarette deeply. "That's right. He can lead a squad well enough. Pretty lacking when it comes to other stuff, though." Mirai turns, and sticks her tongue out coyly. "MY Squad is completely prepared for the exams. Himawari, Kayo, and Shinji are all exceptional shinobi. Why, I'd say that Shinji is just as capable of a tactician as Takeshi is, and much more proficient in Ninjutsu to boot." Hanto nods. "You're probably right, but Takeshi also has an inordinate amount of guts. A disregard for danger that's generally only present in the fiery hothead types, who can't think past what they're having for lunch. I think that guts are more important than skill." Mirai chuckles, as they approach the Hokage Monument. High above, Naruto Uzumaki looks down on them. She'd look over and smile. "You would think that, wouldn't you? Your whole family is nothing BUT guts." He chuckles. "That's right. Speaking of which..I've been thinking of personally training Kichiro." She looks over, surprised. "Oh? You mean that thuggish kid on your squad? He didn't seem like anything special, to me." Hanto stretches. "We'll see. This is why I want a little more time with them." "What about the other one? The strange little girl?" she inquires."Ai? She's a lost cause, as far as I'm concerned. Beyond the basics her training is completely beyond me. After a certain point, /you know who/ is going to want to train her personally. I don't see why he takes such an interest in that girl." Mirai smiles weakly. "You know why. She reminds him of a certain student that /you know who/ used to have, too."
>>43287547Hanto and her scale the building until they reach the roof, and they enter. It's only a few moments until they're knocking on the office door of the Hokage. The door swings open, and Naruto is seated at his desk. All around him are the Jounin for this year's Genin Squads.Sararu Hikawa. Hanto's and Yasu's father. Yasu's Squad leader.Hinabi Hyuuga. Rokuro's Squad Leader, and Hinata Hyuuga's little sister.Anko Mitarashi. Shikadai's Squad Leader. Hanto internally remarks on how she hasn't lost her figure.Mirai Sarutobi. Asuma Sarutobi's daughter. Himawari's Squad Leader.Konohamaru Sarutobi. Hiruzen Sarutobi's Grandson.Then finally, Hanto Hikawa. Misfit son of Sararu, and Squad Leader of Squad 13. Six Teams representing the new generation. Naruto looks up from his desk, and smiles. "Well, everyone. What do you all have to say for your squads?"
Is that it?
>>43287874Nah, next update is coming
>>43287874Don't rush the mini
>>43287945>>43287943Sorry, it just seemed cutoff.
Before anyone else can say anything, Hanto's Father, Sarasu, steps forward. He's a tall man with bronzed skin and black hair, with a spiky ponytail. Various scars are present all along his forearms, neck, and face. His skin looks rough and leathery, and he moves with a particular grace and self control. He slams his fist into an open palm, and grins from ear to ear. "I recommend my squad! Yasu, Takkun, and Naota are more skilled than ever! I would contest that they could defeat any Leaf Genin Squad participating this year!" The Hokage smiles, used to this man's energy. "Heh, that's a bold statement, Sarasu. I'm glad to hear it nonetheless. Anyone else?"Konohamaru stomps forward, raising his fist. "I recommend my squad! They're a team of prodigies like the Leaf has never seen before, Boss!" Naruto grumbles. "Yes, but, how is their work ethic?" Konohamaru's jaw drops, and he takes another step forward, although much more meekly. "Y-you can't be serious!? You have to have seen what your son and his team are capable of!" Naruto laughs boisterously, and waves him off. "I'm kidding, Konohamaru. Of course they can participate." Mirai is the next to step forward. "My Squad is also prepared. Himawari, Shinji, and Kayo are an excellent team. Incredibly mature." Naruto nods. "I'll trust your judgement, Mirai." Hinabi Hyuga remains where she is, arms folded behind her back. She seems serious. "My Squad will also participate. In the months they've trained with me, they've shown remarkable adaptability and tactics. They're a resourceful, skilled group."
>>43288113Anko crosses her arms, and seems to think for a few seconds. "Well, the new Ino-Shika-Cho is more promising than ever. But, I don't know if they're quite ready." Sarasu holds out a hand. "Ah, c'mon Anko! With that Nara boy leading your squad, you should be fine! Wasn't his dad the one that passed the test all by himself, those years ago?" Naruto grumbles. "Well, that's not exactly what happened, but..it's not important. If you're unsure Anko, maybe hold off for another six months, then?" Hanto, this whole time, has remained quiet and subdued. He has his hands in his pockets, and his mind fades off into the distance as the others converse over whether or not Shikadai's team is prepared.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lGuDTRilKQHe thinks back to the moment when he first met his squad. When he learned of Kichiro, Ai, and Takeshi's ambitions. The lofty heights that each of them wanted to reach, all on their own. Slowly, but sure, Hanto raises his head and smiles. Anko suggests her team for the exams, and Naruto turns his head towards Hanto. "Hmm? What are you smiling for?" Hanto chuckles. "Because, if my team doesn't pass, at least they'll learn from the experience, right?" Naruto frowns. "Hanto, please. This is serious. You know what could happen to them if they're not prepared for the forest." Sarasu smiles, tauntingly. "That's right, son. If your team isn't ready, they could get hurt. Maybe some more time is in order, so that they can prepare? They're not as naturally gifted as some of the others." Hanto grins devilishly. "That's right, they're not as naturally gifted. Which is why they need this lesson."Naruto rests on his elbows. "I'm listening. Make your point." Hanto holds out his hands in a gesture. "Is there no better teacher than the threat of death? I reason that if they fail, they live, and they'll be more prepared for the experience next time. They'll train harder. They'll use that failure to further their ambitions."He clenches his fist tightly, and it weakly glows with a blue flame. "And if they die, then they had no ambition at all! I recommend Squad 13 for the Chunin Exams!" Konohamaru sighs. "Crazy son of a bitch.."
>>43288185Why is Hanto the best?
>>43288232Good combo of reading people, heart and no fucks given. He's like Jiraiya when he actually thinks
The room goes quiet for a few seconds, and Naruto sighs. He unfolds his arms and straightens himself up, apparently making a difficult decision. "Hanto, that's a pretty controversial way of looking at this. It makes it sound like you don't care about your students at all. But I know this isn't how you feel. I understand your line of thinking. The way you look at it, if you didn't give them the chance to challenge themselves, then that would be a sign of not caring, right?" Hanto, shocked by the Hokage's empathy, nods slowly. "That's right." Across the room, Sarasu has crossed his arms, and is looking down grimly. Reflecting on past events with his son, and how he could have handled things differently. Hanto looks up. "So, you see why this is important." Naruto chuckles. "I think I get the idea. Besides, I think they'll all be up for it. They'd be upset if you told them they couldn't participate."Hanto smiles. "That's right. Thank you, Lord Hokage." ----That's all for this one. taking another request
>>43288339The last days of Takeshi's Parents.
>>43288339Takeshi and Shikadai playing shogi while Temari is being best girl.
>>43288409i vote for this
>>43288339Takeshi is asked by the hokage to deliver a message or go fetch something for him. Makes it sound super important. It isn't. It's just asking Hinata about something silly. Or making him pick up some ramen.
>>43288409>>43288520>>43288585You guys sure? It wouldn't be much more than a short conversation with Shikadai and Temari
>>43288633>>43288613this works too. maybe run into Hima, Boruto and others as we go on the "mission"
>>43288613I like this one, could be hilarious.>>43287547>"Ai? She's a lost cause, as far as I'm concerned. Beyond the basics her training is completely beyond me. After a certain point, /you know who/ is going to want to train her personally. I don't see why he takes such an interest in that girl." I WANT TO KNOW MORE.
>>43288633They're playing the game, Takashi has to run off to do a super important mission seen here >>43288613
>>43288708She reminds people of that sped who drew summons.
>>43288708Orochimaru dollars to doughnuts. Which is why she went after his kid so hard.
>>43288721that could work
>>43288613I'll back this but make it something embarrassing for someone. Boruto Hinata or Himawari. Naruto doesn't seem the type to get too embarrassed about anything>Hinata, here's the special soap so Boruto doesn't get that itchy rash again
>>43288409>>43288613>>43288683>>43288721all this stuff. Updates coming soon
>>43288708>you know whoCalling it. Now, its gonna be someone who used to be Anbu. That was her goal back when we met her right? Becoming Anbu? Anyway, with the /you know who/ thing in there, that makes me think it's someone we would know. Who used to be Anbu? Kakashi? Sai?
>>43288883Takeshi leaves so many traps and false leads on his way there that cleaning up after him becomes its own mission.
Was watching Shippuden last night and was wondering If the Nara's had a contract with deer
>>43288930Sai or whoever was still alive that wanted to use him for nefarious purposes. Granted I'm pretty sure they died at some point but.. who knows.
You stare at your opponent's eyes, locked in an intense battle. The mid-day sun lights up half of his face, the porch roof overhead blocking some of the light from your shogi board. Shikadai sits somewhat positioned in the shadows, while you're sitting opposite in the light. Slowly but surely, you reach down and pick up a piece from the board.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0k3onazsn_QSlamming it down in a different position, you declare your attack. "Check!" Shikadai almost jumps forward, snatching a piece carefully. "I don't think so!" He slams it down. "Now you're in check!" You planned for this, however. By manipulating his moves you've put yourself in an even more advantageous position. You pick up a piece and clack it back down. "I take your knight with my rook!" Shikadai grins. "Fine! But my other knight moves here to block in your rook, and if you take this knight, then my pawn will take you!"You chuckle. "Where are your guts, Shikadai? I'd never back down to you!" You grab your Rook and take his knight, and he responds by taking your rook. Of course, you bring in your bishop, snatching away Shikadai's favorite piece. "Heh! Check!" Shikadai picks up a pawn, and moves it forward two spaces to block the path of your Bishop. He bought himself another turn.
>>43289195"Checkmate!" You look down in surprise at the board. "Huh??" He points to his own bishop. "Moving my pawn out of the way put your King in it's path. You're trapped in by your own pieces, with no where to go. It's mate, friend!" You snap, and cross your arms. "Damn! That was such a good game, we'd been going for so long!" Temari steps outside, opening up the door. She's holding up a tray of glasses full of lemonade, balancing it without effort. She kneels down and offers each of you one, and you both happily partake and thank her. She laughs lightheartedly. "I can't believe the way you two play this game. Most matches don't last over an hour, you know. I don't think there are any adults in the Leaf, besides your father, who could beat you two." You sip at the drink and grin sheepishly, slightly blushing. You'd never really had anyone to play Shoji against all that much, since your brother isn't very good at it.
Next update will come briefly, gotta let my dog out
>>43289308> where's the /ss/ .jpg
>>43289221Temari's attracted to brains, right?How long until we cuck Shikamaru?
>>43289426>Implying a horde of anons is smarter than Shikamaru.
>>43289308>>43289377Chill rather not end up imprisoned in a forest for all eternity while Deer watch us everyday every second
Suddenly, next to you, there's a puff of white smoke. It's about as tall as a human, and not a moment later none other than Naruto Uzumaki, the Hokage of the Hidden Leaf steps forward. He smiles and gives everyone a small salute. "Afternoon, everyone! How are you all doing?" Shikadai smiles. "I'm doing well, Lord Hokage. Yourself?" Naruto gives him a thumbs up. "Busy as ever! I actually came here because I wanted to ask a favor of Takeshi." Temari straightens up, folding up the tray she used to carry the glasses and frowning. "Taking advantage of this nice boy's manners, are you?" Naruto shakes his head frantically, trying to explain himself. You and Shikadai both laugh, having never seen the Hokage act like this. Maybe he's a little afraid of Temari? "N-No! Not at all, Temari! It's really important!" He turns to you, as you sip from your lemonade silently. It's pretty darn good. "Takeshi, will you do this favor for me?" You blink. "What is it, sir?" He holds out a small envelope, and passes it to you. "It's a message I need you to deliver to my wife, Hinata. It's super urgent, and I'd owe you greatly if you'd do this for me!" You smile. "Of course, Sir Hokage. It's an honor." Naruto stands up straight, and salutes once more. "I knew I could count on you! Have a great day, everyone!" He vanishes in a puff of smoke, and you stand up, prepared to set off to Naruto's home. You wave goodbye to Shikadai and Temari.
So I just thought of something considering how much Takeshi's intellect and planning ability gets recognized. Are we basically gonna make him into a ninja version of Joseph Joestar? Cause I would be totally okay with that. Chakra can do just about anything the Ripple can do anyways.Plus it would be funny if Takeshi got to pull off a, 'The next thing you're going to say is ___.'
>>43289984I really hope not.
It doesn't take too long to find the Hokage's house, and you knock at the front door. It's only a few moments later until it's opened by Himawari, who smiles when she sees you. "Hello Takeshi. What brings you here?" You hold out the envelope, showing her. "Your dad wanted me to deliver this message to your mom. Is she home?" Himawari seems to think for a moment, before nodding. "She's out right now, but she'll be home soon I think. If you want to wait for her, you can come in and sit down." You nod. "Sure, thanks."
You enter and look around. Everything is well kept and orderly, with a clearly modern design philosophy. It's evident that a well-off family lives in this home, considering that everything seems to be custom designed. You're led into a large living room with a large television at the center, and sitting at a couch is a certain young Genin. You and Boruto both lock eyes, fiercely, as you enter the room. He stands up, setting down his gamestation controller and pouting. "What are you doing here? You got business with my sister, buddy!?" You shake your head. "No, your mom." He clenches his fist and takes a step forward, but Himawari stops him at the chest and pushes him back. "Get out, jerk! He's here to deliver a message! Dad'll be mad if you mess with him!" He stands up and dusts himself off, grumbling before heading upstairs. You hear a door slam a few seconds later. Himawari turns, and she gently twiddles her thumbs together. "Sorry about that, he's a butthead."You laugh. "Oh, I know. I've ran into him before.""I could tell, by the way he looked at you when you came in. I don't know what you did to upset bro, but it must have been pretty funny if he gets that mad." She says. Hinata enters the room, walking in carrying a few groceries and setting them on the counter. She looks over, and gives you a small wave. "Oh, Hello. Are you one of Himawari's friends from school? I'm Hinata, her mother."You walk over, and shake her hand. "I'm actually a Genin that's gone on a mission with Himawari before. Lord Hokage asked me to deliver a message to you." She blinks, holding up her hand slightly. "Oh, I'm sorry. I hope I didn't keep you waiting." You shake your head and chuckle. "Not at all, ma'am. Here's that letter!" You pass it off, and Hinata opens it up and grumbles. "He wanted fish for dinner tonight? Ugh, he should have told me earlier! I already got pork.."
>>43290096----That's all for tonight, folks. Hope you enjoyed these couple of side-stories. I'll stick around to answer some questions for a bit.
>>43290096>You and Boruto both lock eyes, fiercely, as you enter the room. He stands up, setting down his gamestation controller and pouting. "What are you doing here? You got business with my sister, buddy!?" You shake your head. "No, your mom."TOP KEK
>>43290129Welp that was cool thanks boss
>>43290096>You enter and look around. Everything is well kept and orderly, with a clearly modern design philosophy. It's evident that a well-off family lives in this home, considering that everything seems to be custom designed. You're led into a large living room with a large television at the center, and sitting at a couch is a certain young Genin. >>You and Boruto both lock eyes, fiercely, as you enter the room. He stands up, setting down his gamestation controller and pouting. "What are you doing here? You got business with my sister, buddy!?" >>You shake your head. "No, your mom."SHOTS FIREDHOTSFIRED
>>43290096Every time Boruto and Takeshi meet, it only makes our rivalry stronger. Lest Himawari got our back.
>>43290448Boruto's been a jerk to her for a long time. Hell he awakened her Byakugan by being a jerk.>>43290129Thanks for running boss. How badly does Boruto want to punch us?
>>43290503Pretty darn badly, you're one of his main rivals, although he doesn't see you as much in terms of fighting ability. He thinks you're weak, but knows you're tricky. If he has to fight you it's his goal to just overpower you with force.
>>43290575>If he has to fight you it's his goal to just overpower you with force.Well there's no way we can use that sort of thing against him now is there?with that water senbon technique, could we dose it with poison?
>>43290631Nah, because the needles are created using water chakra inside of your body.
>>43290706speaking of the spaz, has his team already made it inside of the tower and if not how are they looking? as in beat up, or doing just fine.
>>43290744They're inside the tower by now, and they're just fine.
>>43290764I suppose a blood technique turning our blood into a poison to anyone other than us is right out then?
>>43290764what they have to say when the snake kid came back all beat up?
>>43290706It's obvious, we just have to keep poison in our mouth to imbue in the needles!
>>43290798for now, at least>>43290805He was in top condition when he returned. When he shed his body and created a new one, he healed himself of all wounds. Cost a large portion of chakra though.>>43290808Don't swallow it! Or cut your mouth
>>43290831Can't we make ourselves immune via small doses gradually increasing? Also can we point out the Rokka no Yuusha alcohol plus flint in mouth = fire to Kichiro?
>>43290895It is possible to eventually make yourself immune to generic poisons. You'd have to find someone to consult about that knowledge, though.
>>43290831so how does our brother feel about our chances of actually passing the exams?Oh and on the topic of family, what story have you come up with telling how both our parents left us in the care of our brother.
>>43290949like the flower shop owners who seem to have the only shop in town that sells something beyond generic poison?
>>43290954You parents were KIA on a mission, together. They died fighting an overwhelming enemy force. Your bro just doesn't want you to get hurt, win or lose.>>43290996Maybe someone there will know.
>>43291020so how many teams have made it to the tower so far?
>>43291020So how messed up is Yousuke and co?
>>43291142Most of the especially powerful teams.>>43291157They're hurt, but recovering. Yosuke can use his lightning to start a fire and warm up quicker, so his team is healing fast. Their other team mate will be functional again soon.
>>43291196We still got that tiger skin?
>>43291196Oh a question about the preliminary round they have in the tower before the tournament begins. Well we have time to rest and resupply or is it straight into the fight assuming we don't arrive before the last day?
>>43291285Yeah you got it stuffed in a pack.>>43291309You'll have more time to rest the faster you get there. They'll give you 3 meals each day and warm places to sleep while you wait.
>>43291343Can we talk to the other teams and train more if we get there quicker?
>>43291343but no resupplying then? eh, thats both good and bad depending on who we fight.
>>43291343Can we substitute with it?
>>43291343How tough is the tiger skin? Could someone like Boruto just flex and rip right through it?
>>43291539It's tough enough to absorb light weaponry, like kunai or shuriken, or senbon. It might reduce the damage of a sword, but it won't stop it completely, and it could get torn that way. Good protector against the elements though, water, wind, and earth resistant but weak to fire and lightning.>>43291399nah>>43291390nope, no supplies>>43291389you'll want to rest rather than train if you do make it earlier. Don't want to show off your skills for the other teams to study
>>43291694Perfect.We'll wrap up our opponent in a tiger-skin net, drag them to the wall of the prelim chamber, and just start swinging them against the wall until we stop hearing noises.
>>43291768It's mostly the fur and complete hide that gives it it's defense, splitting it up would be detrimental.
>>43291809Not splitting it up. Just throwing the skin on someone while they're in the air, then grabbing all the edges to make a sack. Using it to entangle someone.
>>43291880could work, maybe. You'd have to be quick!
>>43291880...that honestly sounds like a desperation move. like grabbing someone's shirt and pulling it over there head in a fight so they can't see you.
>>43292025Next thread when?Also how much more experience will we need to trick shot with our weapons?
>>43292037Kinda, but we use a thick piece of tiger skin that's also resistant to the elements. And let's be perfectly honest, we'll probably need a few moves like that.
>>43292068You would need some sort of special ability to do something like that. Enhanced perception, mirrors, or wires are used for things like that
I have a question about something I'm not sure we could pull off so I wanted to run it by you to see if we could actually do it.I remember you said that the bells we brought with us could amplify our false sound move. could we attach one to our ear, cast false sound on whoever we're fighting and at first just have them hear the jingle from places we're not so we can get a few cheap blows in. Then once they figure out that trick start switching it up by sometime letting them hear the actual bell mix in with false sound to mess with them all while we slow but surely increase the volume of the bell until it's deafening. Mix it with false place and/or a smoke bomb and it could be quite effective in a one on one match.So long story short, could we pull something like that off?
>>43292251mite b cool
>>43292251something like that, although you wouldn't have to go as far as piercing your ear.
>>43292129can we use chakra threads connected to senbons instead of wire? after training, of course.
>>43292463chakra's not actually physical, but you could manipulate the senbon midair using chakra strings potentially. You'd have to learn the basics of puppetry though
Bump in hopes Mini will post more
>>43295533When did he say the next thread was?
>>43296803He did not
Bump for blind hope.
Just got home from work, surprised to see the thread still up. I don't know if I'll be busy tonight, but I think I'll try to run later. In about an hour I'm expecting a phone call, so depending on that determines when I run.
Okay, I have about an hour until I have to leaf for a bit. I can probably do one write up until then.Keep in mind, you can also request stuff that happened but you didn't see. Ai or Kichiro vs the Sand Shinobi or Grass Shinobi, or other fights that have occurred in the forest, like what Shikadai's team has donejust as examples.
>>43300857How about Ino-Shika-Cho's first day in the forest.
>>43300857Either Ai and Kichi against their sand opponents, or The funniest battle in the competition to date.
>>43300857>Ai or Kichiro vs the Grass Shinobi
>>43300892You slowly march over to your opponent, the Armadillo-like boy. What was his name, Matsutaro or something? You didn't really hear, and to be quite honest, you don't really care. You stare down the weirdo with an intense glare. You've had enough of this forest in the short time that you've been here, and you may as well take out some of your rage on this fat bastard. Stopping, you stand tall. You take a fist and pound it into and open palm, and grin. "I'm gonna enjoy this, guy. I don't know what kind of armor you're sporting, but I'll cook you alive in it either way! Hahaha!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=am7Za-5xl7kYour opponent appears completely stoic. The larger boy stands up straight and forms several handseals, before kneeling back down. Slowly but surely, the armor on his body thickens until he's covered in a crust of stone. You watch in surprise as you try to comprehend what sort of technique he's using. The stone wraps around his jaw in a wring to protect him from blows, and from you can see, the only exposed area is his stomach. He crouches down onto all fours, planting his fists onto the ground and seeming ready to pounce. Now he's really Armadillo like. "Like I said, it doesn't matter! You better give up!" You flick through several handseals as well, and decide to start with a lighter attack. It's best to try and draw out an attack and see if this new form has any new tricks, instead of going in full blast. People may not credit you as the team tactician like Takeshi, but you do know how to do one thing properly. Constant offense. "Phoenix Fireball Jutsu!"
>>43301487You hold up a hand to your mouth, and spit a storm of dozens of small fireballs at once. They all race towards Mataro, and you take your free hand to slyly throw shuriken into the mix. The steel is hidden by the wall of fire, and you can hear it dully thud into the rock. You wonder if this will have any sort of effect at all. Returning to a neutral stance, you try to glean the state of your opponent through the dust as it clears. In just a few moments, you can see that your enemy has completely vanished! The only thing remaining is a large hole in the ground. You have a fairly good idea of where he's hiding. Faintly, the ground underneath your feet vibrates. You sprint forward, deciding once again that offense is the best strategy. You preform the standard handseals of Fireball Jutsu, and exhale a steady stream of heat into the hole that was left behind. The rumbling under your feet intensifies, and the Armadillo-like boy leaps out of the earth, a fountain of fire just behind him. He lands on the ground, unpleased to say the least. He starts to rush you down, sprinting on all fours and making good time. However, a direct attack is exactly what you've been looking for. You form the handseals for Great Fireball Jutsu, and exhale a gigantic bullet of flame that speeds through the forest. Much to your shock, your opponent doesn't swerve out of the way. Instead, he opts to leap forward, and roll into a ball of stone!
>>43301513He rolls along the ground directly through your flame at high speed, and charges you down even faster than before. Acting purely on instinct, you leap upwards. However, your opponent kicks at the ground and launches himself at an angle. He strikes you midair, and the rocky surface of his skin grinds at you and sends you flying, and crashing into the trees. You're in fairly intense pain from the direct hit, and you know one more of those will keep you down.You blink, your vision slightly black around the edges. In a couple of moments you regain your senses, and leap down from the trees back in front of your opponent. You take one of the canteens on your belt and tilt it up, drawing in a few long gulps. The water hits your gullet as you screw back on the lid, and you preform handseals for your special jutsu. Fire Style: Bath-house Oni. You call it that because of how it turns your sweat into steam. It's pretty cool, although if you use it once you become dehydrated, it'll cook your organs and your blood will boil. A painful death you'd like to avoid. Hopefully this water will be enough to carry you through this fight with this titan. If a direct attack from your fire won't work, then you'll just have to outmatch him in close combat.
>>43301529https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkS_w22lbEsYou concentrate, gathering your chakra and strength. You feel an immense heat start to rise up from your belly, the center of your power. You pool it all in your stomach and burn it like a furnace, the fire nature chakra swelling your system with power. It causes your skin to start to turn red, and the veins on your skin to bulge. Sweat pouring down your face soon turns into steam, and through it all, you look just a bit like a demon. Sprinting forward with a dash, you throw a left hook down at the side of Masuro's head. He raises up an arm to block the strike, as you predicted. Your feint flies free, and you twist your body in the opposite direction to whip in a powerful front kick. The blow knocks the arm that was supporting him aside, and he falls face first. Before he can scramble to stand up again, you stomp down as hard as you can, utilizing all of your strength. His jaw impacts the dirt, leaving a small crater. If it wasn't for the helmet of earth, which is now shattered, he may not have survived. You drop your jutsu, and nearly fall to the ground as you turn pale as a ghost. You feel sick, and your head is pounding in pain. The effects of being severely dehydrated. You probably pushed that for longer than you should have. You down the rest of the first canteen, as your opponent lays in front of you, half conscious. He slowly stands up, and you get the feeling you're in danger as you try to wobble to your feet. However, his team-mate calls him away, and he digs into the earth and leaves you.Fucker.----
That's all for now guys. I'll be here for about 10 minutes before I leave.
>>43301568When are you running next?!
>>43301602Maybe tonight once I get back in about two hours.
>>43301619I am happy. c:
>Tfw you won't be here to call Himawari fags scum of the earth, that they areForgive me, lads. Hope someone is able to keep up the good fight and stop them ruining all our secret plans.
>>43302692There are no secret plans, just faggots who think they'll somehow get a majority backing their shit waifu.
Only thing i dislike about this quest is that we dont really have a gimmick Everyone in Naruto has oneShadow clones, shadow control, body inflation, ice creation, blue fire empowerment, puppets, bloodline shit, etc etcI just want one to fall into our lap already, the tattoo things cool but its basically something that could be handwaved by a QM anyway
>>43303026It's up to us to make one like other great ninja born without one did.
>>43303044But nobody seems to have any ideas and getting a consensus sure as hecks gonna be difficultWe can use water jutsu so probably something with that
>>43303026We're the underdog, the one who wins despite his lack of special snowflake powers.
>>43303084Its not being a special snowflake if literally everyone else has oneOnly issue i have is that everyone has their special thing as of now, whereas we only have a very basic move set going into this. It feels too heavily weighted against us for any win to feel genuine and losing because QM hasnt given us a chance to be of a comparable lvl feels bad aswell.
>>433030791. Get water release2. Get Fire release3. Learn Boil release4. Make death with chemistry5.?????6. LEGENDARY NINJA!
>>43303079Given how kekkei work here, if we start in on fire or wind we could get boil or ice.If we go with fire and eventually follow it up with earth we could be Mei mk.II.
>>43303147Most characters "special power" is something that has been a family secret for generations. If you're not from one of the families that has one of those well guarded secrets or special bloodlines, tough luck.
>>43303171I was really hoping we'd get our second nature earlier just so we could come up with our own thing ourselves.Water-Fire= Boil, LavaWater->IceWater-Earth= Wood, Mud, Poison, Mercury, MagnetWater-Yin= Water Summons expert, healingetc>>43303228Shame everyone who isnt a part of one of those families isnt relevant in eugenics the series
>>43303171>3. Learn Boil releaseYou cannot do that without the correct bloodline.
>>43303259Mini say we can only learn fire or wind next. Boil seems moderately more useful to us than ice. Also poison and bases are covered in boil as well, as per word of QM. We just need to learn. Thank goodness 3.5 Int.>>43303265Mini has said otherwise, hence the grass village having a genin with Wood release despite no relation to Senju clan.
>>43303309Poisons and bases are covered with boil? That seems odd
>>43303309>Mini has said otherwiseYou're right, I just keep forgetting that this universe works differently
>>43303309>>Boil seems moderately more useful to us than ice.>Not shooting someone with a frozen poison-bullet>Not being the perfect assassin
>>43303331According to Mini when we asked. Thought it was odd too, but hey, Boil just got more useful.>>43303338Which is both good for us, and bad for us.>>43303357>IceIce, snow, cold>BoilSteam, poison, scalding liquids, chemistry, lavaUtility anon, not counting we can make alcohol, barf it up then ignite it.
>>43303485Lava isn't boil. Lava is an entirely separate release - earth and fire.
>>43303485I do like the idea of focusing on poisonOnly issue is it'll fuck up the tone of a lot of fights which im not sure will be fun for QM
>>43303485>>43303531Yeah, isn't lava Fire/Earth/Water? I seem to recall that the only one who could use it was the Mizukage due to her super special bloodline limit that let her mix three elements.
>>43303575You are correct, although I don't remember if it was her bloodline or her just being awesome
>>43303599In the manga ALL merging of elements is from a bloodline.
>>43303624Why did he make everything genetic? Christ that's dumb
>>43303575Lava is earth and fire. A lot of people can use it in canon, it's pretty widespread for a bloodline. Kurotsuchi would be the best example.Mei was impressive because she had mastery over two distinct bloodline releases - boil and lava - and could use them together.
>>43303531>>43303575opps, still we need water and fire for it.>>43303571Mini straight up said he expects missions to get ugly, and quite frankly something like poison is the only way we'll hurt enemies early on, provided we can get a hit in.
>>43303338To be fair, the Senju clan is still bound solely to Hashirama's clan. However, Orochirmaru DID have Cells of his stored, and he did have many, many hidden bases throughout many countries. >>43303575Lava is earth and fire. You're thinking of Dust, which is the Iwakage's special ability. Dust is Lightning, Fire, and Wind, and essentially disintegrates shit
>>43303701Earth, not Lightning
>>43303850When you boil it down aren't they really the same basic thing?
>>43303884Nope. Earth is all about the stabilization of objects and direction of force. Lightning has direction of force too, but it is all about destabilization.
>>43303884Well, given that Dust is the only kekkei tota they ever show, I guess it doesn't really matter what elements it's made ofBoth of the people who have it are from Iwa though, so earth seems like a given
>>43303929>>43303931Stop proving me wrong!
>>43303884...no? Not even a little.
>>43303937Laze being the reasonable one as usual
Regardless of whether or not I was wrong, I'll be taking more write up suggestions for a little while.
>>43304025Bro takes us to work day
>>43304025AI vs flash, The grass clusterfuck fight. Sarada and Boruto asking Michiru where the hell he went.
>>43304025Salad and boruto meeting Orochimaru junior after he escaped
>>43304025Mari's view of the start of the forest of death.
>>43304084>>43304089I'll be doing the one with Squad 7. Incoming
Mitsuki slithers along the forest floor until he returns to Squad 7's camp in the Forest of Death. They're confidently resting in the center of a clearing with a fire in the center, sure that any predator that comes their way could be defeated. Human or otherwise. Sarada was resting in front of the fire, on watch, as Boruto sleeps a few feet away. She looks up as Mitsuki approaches, and grumbles a tired response. "Well, was your adventure worth it? I still don't see the point of going out alone just to creep on people." Mitsuki sits down, taking a deep breath and exhaling slowly. He remains as calm as ever with his retort. "Sarada, I ran into that boy that you mentioned. Takeshi. His Squad, as well. I think that your hunch about him is right. Even when I resorted to increasing my..bloodlust, they held me off. Reduced my Chakra to half, even. I would have had to create a ruckus if I wanted to survive a continued encounter, so I fled." Sarada sits up sharply. "Tch! So you led them here! What were you thinking?!" Mitsuki holds up a hand, and chuckles. "Please, Sarada. Don't give me so little credit. They didn't walk away from the encounter uninjured. Plus most of them already seemed a bit roughed up. I highly doubt they'll risk pursuing our entire squad in any condition, let alone the one they're in. Besides, me at half chakra and you fully rested? We wouldn't even need to wake Boruto, haha." Sarada crosses her arms, and pouts. "Don't say things like that. You never know what sort of trick someone could have under their sleeve. It'll be the one that undoes you."
>>43304699Boruto groggily sits up, awakened by the speech. He has a little bit of drool on his chin, and wives it off with his sleeve. "H-huh? Oh, hey, you're back Mitsuki. Have fun on your walk, or whatever?" Sarada interjects before Mitsuki can greet him. "He ran into Takeshi."Boruto instantly snaps awake, gripping his fist tightly and holding it up. He practically growls. "That punk..Did you put him in his place, Mitsuki?!" The snake-like boy rubs the back of his head, and chuckles sheepishly. "Well, I like to think that I gave him quite a scare. I wasn't really into actually hurting them, I didn't want to get carried away. You know how it is with that jutsu of mine."Boruto leans forward, surprised. "Oh? You resorted to that technique? I thought you hated it." Mitsuki scratches his chin. "Well, when it's three on one, I felt a little cornered. Sometimes you have to rely on your survival instincts, as violent as they may be. I think I nearly crushed that little girl. If Takeshi hadn't killed my snake, then-"Boruto stands up. "Woah, hold up! That punk killed THAT snake all on his own!?"
>>43304715https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daPo6q4FXDwMitsuki chuckles in the same sheepish way. "Well, not exactly. He used an explosive tag. Tricked me with Genjutsu to get it in position. He's slippery. But, the whole time, I got the sense he was having fun. Like each narrow avoidance of death, or counterattack, was like winning a point in a game. Their whole team...They just have a reckless abandon for their own lives, I'd say."Sarada pushes up her glasses. "That's why they're dangerous. They care more about their ambitions and dreams than they do their own existence. Each one of them is willing to lay everything down on the line, for what? Takeshi, the only thing he desires is to win. That girl, Ai, the only thing she desires is to become an ANBU Black Ops Member." Boruto nods. "Mhmm, Mhmm. That Kichiro, he wants to be rich, famous, and powerful like no one else. So, you're saying that their obsessions are what make them dangerous?" Mitsuki looks down at the ground. "I guess it does make sense. It was strange. When they fought me, at first, they allowed their injured team mate to attack me directly. Even though Takeshi had seen how powerful I was, he allowed her to do this. He respected her pride as a warrior, even though he had none himself. Maybe he saw it as an opportunity to wear me down, so he could finish me himself?"Sarada takes a cooked fish out of the fire, and bites into it. "That's what I'm saying. It's just too iffy. Every move he makes furthers his own goals, even when he's helping others."
>>43304733Mitsuki holds up three fingers, and chuckles. "I think I see now. We've found someone who is intelligent enough to turn three ambitions.." He curls two fingers back, leaving only his index finger. "Into one. A Squad walking waste deep in mortality, carrying each other through strength. The more I think about the way their team operates, and the way others work, the more I see a division. Each other squad, even ours, is more centered around individual powers and ambitions. We all work for our own goals, and our own reasons, with our own strengths. But they, they're too weak to hold up their ambitions on their own. Together they propel it forward."Boruto holds up a fist, and points it to the sky. "Whatever! Who cares how strong they are as a group? They'll never survive a one on one fight with any of us, and that's a fact!" Sarada frowns. "A potential sociopath, a thug, and a clan's last child. I don't think we should blink without paying attention to these guys. Their trick is fading into the background where no one will notice them, but we have to study."Mitsuki smiles. "Well, I have a brand new report that we can look over right here..." ----That's all for right now folks. I may do another write up shortly.
>>43304699>>43304715>>43304733>>43304746Holy shit we're Izaya...
>>43304746>A potential sociopathnow why does she say that
>>43304801Izaya Orihara from Durarara, high functioning sociopath who plays with people's lives for fun.
>>43304818Too friendly, too intelligent, she thinks that you're wearing a mask of a personality and that at heart you're potentially the cold calculating type.>>43304822I'd say it's more you play with people's lives as pieces in a game, but you always deliver victory using their strength. Like a chessmaster. That's what a strategist, is, really, but Sarada just thinks the natural affinity that you have for it and what it could look like on a real battlefield could quickly turn you into a monster if the opportunity was there. Think about it. Every lucky "Punch" that you've landed on people like Mari, could just have easily been the stab of a kunai that kills them. You've quite actually been restraining yourself most of the time, except against faceless mooks who don't matter
>>43304876Restraining ourselves by not thinking everything through and not using write ins. Considering this is /tg/ Sarada is spot on Also Izaya literally sets people up on a chess board with pieces that represent them. Which is why that comment led me to my comparison.
>>43304876Holy hell. Did Boruto's opinion of us change with that talk?Can we get a non-canon write-up of Takeshi, that ended up recruited by a pre-shippuden Orochimaru, out on an assignment?
>>43304876>>43304930We could also be Lelouch, same thing.Also we worry Sarada, the goal of being a splendid ninja despite being special is that much closer to being achieved.Although our filler fight with Boruto doesn't fit, so what does she think on that?
>>43304946You've had another encounter with Boruto where you got in a brief scuffle. He doesn't like you.>>43304930Your write-ins will be able to be more and more flexible as you learn new Jutsu. You have no idea how much more capable you're going to be after a month of solid, hard training.
>>43304974being nothing special*
>>43304980Obviously. But surely he sees us as someone who shouldn't be pis-AHHHAHAHAAAA what am I saying of course he wants to try and kick our ass.We're going to wrap him up in a tiger-skin, let it hang from the ceiling, and just start hitting it with a stick.
>>43304980you said that were gonna be trained by some one any hint on who that is
>>43305043They fought in the 4th Shinobi World War and they're pretty damn well known around these parts.
>>43305106That would be based as fuck if Mini did it.
>>43305071So how does us being clearly upset in the Boruto fight factor into Sarada's opinion on us? She think it's an act?Is Hanto going to get Sai or another ANBU to train Ai? Since he's training Kichiro himself.
>>43305179Being a really friendly person doesn't mean you can't defend yourself when someone's being a jerk. Kindness does not equate weakness.Ai's teacher was chosen the moment she entered the Academy.
>>43305229Since persistent videogames are a thing, Does Takeshi play and if so, what, how powerful, and how many people has he made rage?
>>43305403He only plays casually, mostly with his brother whenever they're both in for the night and have some time to kill. They like fighting games and co-op action games.
>>43305403Takeshi probably plays rts games and everyone who ever plays him rages because brides base units to overwhelm the enemy.
>>43305424so out of all the leaf village ninja that entered the exams, who's the crowd favorite for actually winning the tournament?
>>43305229>Anti social> Anbui think i know who it is...Sai
>>43305424Takeshi and his brother are my niggas, fighting games are the best
>>43305424How far does our bro think we'll get? Who out of the named Ninja we've met think we'll clear the forest and continue?
>>43305456No one, yet. No one knows who will get to the finals, or the prelims.>>43305640He just doesn't want you to get hurt. Most think you won't make it.
>>43305916Which think we will then, or at least have a shot?
>>43305916with the general sentiment we get from the leaf i find it hard to have any loyalty to it
>>43305916Will you be running the quest proper now? Or continue with filler?
>>43305916Is there anyone but the squad who actually expects anyone in the squad to get to the finals?
>>43306142Hanto probably expects us to clear the forest, not sure about the 1 v 1s tho.
>>43306530we still have the senbon with the bells so we got a chance as long as we keep that hidden
>>43306617also flash and smoke bombs, only 4-5 teams know we have genjutsu too.
Also thanks to our filler fight with Boruto we know that he has a Kote on him. Meaning that if we do get unfortunate enough to pull him, considering how angry we make that guy just by existing we could make a play for the long shot and try to get him disqualified for using it.
>>43306759>trying to make Takeshi a whiny cunt
>>43306759He doesn't have it on him for the tournament this time.
>>43306759I think Mini said that in the random ballot he's putting together to see who fights who, he toke a few people out of our corner since as it is now we'd get creamed by them. I think Boruto was one of them.
>>43306864>this time.well Boruto is a cheating shit.Besides Shikadai and Sarada is there anyone else wary of Takeshi?>>43306901Sarada, Ice and Wood girl too probably.
>>43306864Okay, so, plan if we face Boruto.Grin at him, walk on all swaggering, confident as fuck. When the match starts, Shunshin out of the way of his opening attack, then taunt him. He'll probably get a good hit on us early on, let him have it, then say, "You'll have to hit me harder than that if you want your daddy to notice you."He comes at us crazing, we pull out the tiger skin. Before entering the tower, we'll have thread several lengrths of ninja wire around the outside, and looped it so it has a cinch. Tie the end of the cinch to some kunai, and you have a rapid-deploy bag for capturing folks. Snare the enraged Boruto in the bag, use the Kunai to attach it so it hangs from the ceiling, and just use the False Sound jutsu to plague him with psychologically damaging remarks until he just curls up in a sad little ball in the dark and sobs for the next forever.
>>43306950You really don't know anything about his strained relationship with his dad. Too meta.
>>43306977Damn. I don't suppose we'd be able to pull a 'Why would a Hokage's Son squander his talent like that?' Then transition to the 'Noble families do not make ideal child-parent relationships.'
>>43306950Shut up about the damn skin, christ alive man.
>>43307004Too personal. Even then, you should know from every fight in anything shounen ever that talking too much smack is generally a bad move. Universal karma tilts against you.
>>43307041Unless it's done with a specific strategic advantage in mind.
>>43307041Is Takeshi liked by anyone outside his family and team? Besides Shikidai because shogi. Because it doesn't really seem that way to me ya know?
>>43307095You're either unknown, or on neutral terms with most people.
>>43306950Nobody else is going to vote for being a huge antagonising cunt, you cunt.
>>43307175Yeah, we're a nice guy. Almost too nice.Which trolls the fuck out of everyone.
>>43307133Geez. We really are a background character.
>>43307217 So Takeshi will become a super genjustsu master, who puts them under with kind words and compliments before murdering them horribly?
How simple, but not to say easy, would it be to turn the healing palm into an offensive jutsu?If im remembering right, it's pretty easy to use medical jutsu to do cell damage by simply doing them wrong, and judging by the result of Takeshi's lesson on that plant, even doing it right too much.Could Takeshi develop that into an offensive jutsu?
>>43307357we're bringing death with a smile
>>43307347>Taunt him in the match as a purely strategic thing.>After the match: "Seriously though, if you're having issues with your dad you should talk to him. You're a good kid with alot of talent, and your father's worst trait is that he's a bit air-headed."
>>43307387Im 99 percent sure thats not exactly what Chakra scalpel.Thats more for severing, hence the "scalpel" in the name.
Things we should practice/learn for the Tournament: 1. Chakra Scalpel 2. Genjutsu improvement 3. Offensive water ninjutsu 4. Improved weapon handling 5. Summoning Am I missing anything?
>>43307383Or, just have a frank conversation about it with him in the middle of combat. that'd probably throw him off more
>>43307419taijutsui dont wanna be a glass canon
>>43307419Overall physical stat buff, speed, str, the works.>>43307357We're the best troll.
>>43307430For that matter, if we did that, he'd pretty much HAVE to listen. Whats he going to do, cover his ears in the middle of the fight?
>>43307383Let's not be a dick to him.Just be insufferably nice as usual and let him dig his own grave.
>>43307436You dont become a glass cannon just by not punching or kicking things.This isnt DnD.
>>43307430>>43307449Do you really think this will work?
>>43307471All our phys stats are 1.5, we're glassy.>>43307506No they're being dumb.
>>43307506No, we're being dumb.
>>43307506Heey Mini what does Naruto think of Takeshi?
>>43307506>taunt Boruto in the middle of a fight>get him to respond>Sushin in the middle of his response >punch him in the face>"SHUT THE FUCK UP BORUTO, THAT'S WHY I KICKED YOUR ASS IN THAT ALLEY.">"Nothing personnel."
>>43307547Okay where did that happen? Did I miss a thread or something?
>>43307544Thinks you're a decent kid with a good head on his shoulders.
>>43307567What about Himawari?
>>43307592She thinks you're total shite m8 0/10 wot r u doin?
>>43307622Ok I laughed that was good mini
>>43307622Dont tell me Hinata will say git gud scrub
>>43311520oi lmao u wot m8
>>43312122You sucessfully made Boruto angry.He shout "Ill bash yer hed i swer on me mum"
>>43312281>Hinata: OI U LIL SHITEBAG, DON B TALKIN SHIT
So, everyone cool with paying Shikadai back by offering him our extra Earth scroll?
>>43313376Yeah, and maybe getting him to ally with us. After all if we both drop in at the same time poachers won't give us shit.
>>43313431I was more thinking a 'My good word is a valuable resource. If I do betray you, I lose that resource pretty early on."
>>43313450That makes us even less trustworthy tbh.
>>43313654Alright then. "I have two of the damn things and I still owe you for the first exam. Best I can do with it is bait in a ridiculously obvious trap, and if I ambush someone it'd be better to take them completely unawares than let them know someone's about to ambush them."
>>43313773better, not great but better.
>>43314041"Shikadaaaaaaiiii-kun! Lets work together to get an Air scroll or two! My team already have two earth scrolls, so don't worry about that part!"
>>43314145No, and that pics is not reassuring at all.Hi Mikuru's mom!
>>43314366>SpoilerI do not get that reference
>>43314491I keep getting Mutsuki's name wrong, ok?
>>43314504Do you mean Mitsuki, Orochimaru's kid?
So, Mini, when is next thread?
>>43315900Mini is not among us anymore
I'm gonna laugh when someone talks to us like 'Your squad has just been fading into the background on purpose so you can take us unawares.'And then we're like 'No, I just train hard. You never noticed because you all are so talented you believe you're the strongest around. If I've caught up to you, then maybe you should be less lazy.'
>>43317999>implying we would waste time talking or doing anything that isnt applying poison senbon to the necks of our enemies
>>43319297Hey, hey hey, if it was a friendly spar we we'd just knock them out.
bump for mini
Anybody see the Boruto movie yet?Its only on camrip which sucks but the movies actually really good, lots of good worldbuilding and shit. Shame it didnt come out earlier or this quest
>>43321503For what purpose?
>>43322164>43322164For more filler, duh!
>>43321744Saw some clips posted on /a/ a few ages ago. Boruto's chunin exam, and the final fight.
>>43304876I just want to state that a sociopath is the kind of mentally unstable person who will kill someone in a flash of anger then tear their hair out over it later.A psychopath is the type of person to lie, murder, and clean dog poo off their shoes with the same degree of annoyed disinterest.
>>43323392I thought those were opposite?
>>43323473Nope. A psychopath is someone with no conscience. A sociopath is someone who has a conscience, but is so unstable they can end up killing people anyways.
>>43323508Whether or not someone might kill somebody isn't what makes them a sociopath
>>43323678No, it's the mental instability.
>>43323751Sociopaths just don't feel empathy, it has nothing to do with mental stability
I'm liking the way Takeshi is turning out as a character. Narutoland from the perspective of someone who doesn't shit destruction with rainbow eyes is pretty interesting.
