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. Preparations for the final tournament of the Chunin Exams has begun, and Genin all over the Leaf Village training under wise masters. Today you search for one such master.
Once you get done with breakfast, you head home with your brother and get settled down in your room for a short while. It's been an age since you sat down and read a comic book or watched some TV, so it's nice to have a little time to relax. Your brother heads off for a shift at work, and you mentally collect yourself for the rest of the day. Where can you go to find a teacher?>A. Go to the center of town and hold up a sign>B. Go see Sarada and ask if she knows anyone who can help.>C. Go see Shikadai and ask if he knows anyone who can help.>D. Go see Himawari and ask if she knows anyone who can help. >E. Write-in
>>44112724>>C. Go see Shikadai and ask if he knows anyone who can help.While sign is fun i would rather ask a friend first.
>>44112724>>C. Go see Shikadai and ask if he knows anyone who can help.
>>44112724OH FUCKING HYPE AS SHIT>E. Train on your own. Go to the library and check out books on more advanced genjutsu techniques that you can work with given your understanding of the basics.
>>44112724>C. Go see Shikadai and ask if he knows anyone who can help.
>>44112724>>C. Go see Shikadai and ask if he knows anyone who can help.Eh fuck it
>>44112724A.>implying Takeshi wouldn't do this first
>Mini posts as soon as Laze's quest thread falls off the board.Pretty sneaky Mini.
>>44112724>C. Go see Shikadai and ask if he knows anyone who can help.>D. Go see Himawari and ask if she knows anyone who can help. Either or, I don't see Sarada helping
>>44113178I've been gone for a while, what exactly is our standing with her?
>>44113192She just doesn't trust us, she might only be thinking about her best interests if we ask her about a teach and put us with somone lame, or refuse to help us.
At once, you decide on going over to visit Shikadai. Aside from wanting to know if he can help you find a teacher, you're desperately curious to know if he and his squad one their matches or not. It's about a twenty minute walk until you reach his clan's residential area. It's still quite small, especially in comparison to the large expanse of the Hyuuga Clan's residence. It's not long before you find Shikadai's house, the largest in the Nara district. His father, Shikamaru Nara, is the head of the Clan. The Nara have grown in fame and recognition throughout the world, even moreso then before. You rap the wooden door with your knuckle several times, and a few moments later Temari Nara opens up the door. She has a metal mixing bowl in her arms, with a whisk rapidly beating whatever's inside in the other hand. She looks annoyed for a fraction of a second, until she sees that it's you and smiles. "Oh, hello Takeshi. Congratulations on your win in the preliminaries! I'm so proud of you and Shikadai!"After a respectful bow, you smile. "So Shikadai won his fight. That's great. Is he here? I'd like to ask him about what I missed, if he's not busy." She steps away, leading you into the house. "Sure, sure. He's probably taking a nap on the porch or something, right around the corner there."
>>44113214How can she not trust us? We're awesome
>>44113254She steps back into the kitchen, and you slide open the door to the porch. The noon sun is shining brightly, but even so directly in front of you is Shikadai sprawled out on the porch, using the shade of the awning. There's a chubby black cat resting on his chest, curled up into a ball. It slowly moves up and down as Shikadai breathes. You tap him with your foot, and a single eye snaps open.s. He sits up, and the cat rolls off into his lap. Shikadai rubs his eyes. "So you're alive. That's good news. We were all starting to think you'd croaked, after shooting blood everywhere like that.">A.I should tell you about how that match went from my perspective sometime. It probably seemed really confusing.>B.Hey, whatever works. How'd your fight go? I heard you won.>C.Well, I'm back. Only problem is that I don't have a teacher to prepare me for the finals. Do you know anyone who could help me?>D.Write-in
>>44113257She think's we're a full blown murderous psychopath behind a false smile. Our fight in the prelims made her go full tin foil hat.>>44113278>A.I should tell you about how that match went from my perspective sometime. It probably seemed really confusing.>B.Hey, whatever works. How'd your fight go? I heard you won.Ease into it.
>>44113257Because people stay in character in this quest, Som.
>>44113278>A.I should tell you about how that match went from my perspective sometime. It probably seemed really confusing.
>>44113278>Roku was a dick. He used a chakra scalpel to cut without breaking the skin. Blood pooled up underneath without actually flowing. It hurt. Alot. Anyways...
>>44113278>>A.I should tell you about how that match went from my perspective sometime. It probably seemed really confusing.>>B.Hey, whatever works. How'd your fight go? I heard you won.

>>44113278Weren't we conscious for Shikadai's match? I thought he fought before us.
>>44113573oh wait this is true I'm dumb
FuckAccidentally deleted the page I was making the post on. Going to have to start from scratch. It's on the way, folks.
You sit down on the porch, letting your legs hang over the side. Shikadai calmly strokes his cat. "I should tell you how the match looked from my perspective, sometime. It was probably really confusing to everyone else, heh."Shikadai chuckles behind you. "You don't say. To us, it looked as if Roku was losing his mind. Dodging at nothing and completely ignoring the attacks you were hitting him with. At first, it made us realize how much of a threat you could actually be, even one on one."You look over, raising an eyebrow. "Us? You and your squad?"Shikadai strokes his chin. "Everyone, really. No one said it, but everyone had to be thinking it."You look back to the grass. "I'm just glad I won, really. It was so tense in the moment, I still can't believe it." Shikadai laughs, causing the cat in his lap to step away and come over to you. "Same here. My mom's going to work me to death in training, she says." You sigh. "I still need to find a teacher. I'll never be able to keep up if I don't." Shikadai stands up, stretching. "Your sensei can't teach you?"You shake your head. "He's teaching Kichiro, and I don't know anyone else."Shikadai frowns, although you can't see it. He's looking at you contemplatively. "That's rough."Temari opens up the porch door. "Hey boys, I'm gonna have to break up this party for now. I need Shikadai to help me in the kitchen. You can come by again later if you like, Takeshi."Shikadai groans. "I have to help make my own celebratory dinner? What a dr-"Temari shoots up a finger, and presses it up against Shikadai's lips, silencing him. "Ah-ah! No! If I hear that /one/ more time, I swear.."You wave goodbye and quietly step past Temari, walking out the door.Cont.
>>44113874Play the ignorant, fussy mother all you want Temari, but I see you trying to give Shikadai an edge by keeping him from helping his friend.
>>44113922Temari a best
>>44113989Yes. Yes she is anon. Best girl from the series.
So why can't big bro teach us? Too busy?
You exit the Nara residence, and start to walk down the road. You slip your hands in your pockets as you rack your brain for answers, wondering who would possibly be willing to teach you for the month. It seems as if there's no hope short of putting a sign on a stick and standing around in the middle of town, begging for what you can get.Maybe you should just go to the training field and exercise as much as you can. Or go to the library and study all day. B ut will it be enough? It got you to this point, but just barely. You're looking down at the ground, deep in thought as you walk.That blood jutsu Roku used. It could have taken you out in one strike. Then there's Mari, Sarada, Boruto, Shikadai, all incredible fighters who are in this tournament. People you'll probably have to fight at one point or another. As you're walking, you notice that you've suddenly stepped into the shadow of a man much taller than you. You raise your head up, and find that the sun is just behind his head, making it difficult to see his face. He speaks in a smooth, but bored voice. You recognize that voice, in fact. But from where? "Takeshi. I hear that you're in need of a teacher." He steps to the side, and out of the sun. You see the scarred face of Shikamaru Nara looking down at you with a smirk. His dark eyes seem contemplative and vast, as opposed to the piercing accuracy of Shikadai or Temari. >A. That's right, sir. >B. Would you be my teacher?>C. You're here to teach me, aren't you. >D. Write-in
>>44114075>>A. That's right, sir.
>>44114042yup, he works 12 hour shifts 6 days a week
>>44114042He's gotta work so we can both eat. >>44114075>A. That's right, sir.
>>44114075>A. That's right, sir.>B. Would you be my teacher?
>>44114075>A. That's right, sir.
>>44114075>>A. That's right, sir. Highly unlikely but>>B. Would you be my teacher?Please? I mean my own Sensei abandoned me. The hells up with that?
>>44114075>A. That's right, sir.>D. Wouldn't it be counterproductive to help out the only one who can possibly match your son tactically? And aren't you the Proctor anyways?
Just had a thought. Our first match is against Shikidai and it takes all day to finish. We're the first match as well.
>>44114163He won't be the proctor for the final round. He specifically requests the job of hosting the preliminaries and forest of death matches because they're not as much of a hassle.As for the latter, he doesn't care. If his son can't beat you, he doesn't deserve to.
>>44113192A bit better since we have a "1" rank social link with her, just that after the fight with Roko that we kinda "proofed" her "doubts" that we are the most dangerous person in our team.
>>44114217...wait...so he's actually gonna...buenoShadow monster illusions from hell a go.
>>44114270>Shadow monster illusions from hell a go.Shadow stuff is clan only.
>>44114217>As for the latter, he doesn't care. If his son can't beat you, he doesn't deserve to.Pic related>>44114270It's gonna get all Alan Wake up in this bitch.
>>44114096Does he have any tips for us? He's a chuunin himself so he must have a scroll...or a book......Also with our own missions why aren't we helping support big bro?We've got a job too!
>>44114408Genin jobs pay little compared to Chunin jobs, and kids get paid less than full grown adults.
>>44114430So it's very important we become a chuunin just so bro doesn't hafta pay for everything.Odd how simple our goals are compared to our friends. Fucking child labor laws.What the fuck Naruto? Raise the minimum wage!
>>44114430Kids get paid the same, it's just that genin are generally not good enough to do the hard, dangerous high paying jobs
>>44114461He did, which raised inflation, which made the economy worse. Naruto cannot into economics.
>>44114483Damnit Naruto! Why isn't there a ninja college for this shit? We put trained killers into political positions and then we thinks everything will be fine!
>>44114506>I summon a ninja with a PHD to help solve the economical crisis!ALSO I FOUND OUR NEW SENPAI!
>>44114506To be fair on pretty much every other front Naruto's regime has directly or indirectly made things immensely better. Politically(dudes is charismatic as hell and great at finding the middle ground) militarily(every ninja of this age is better than last generation's and the dude can curbstomp almost anyone easily), technologically (sooooooo many new toys and older thing getting put to better/more efficient use), and bureaucratically(Shadow clones everywhere acting alike make the paperwork clusterfuck somewhat manageable). He just sucks with money. Remember to him ramen is all you need to live.
You nod. "That's right, sir. Would you be my teacher, by chance?"Shikamaru cracks his neck. "Well, that's why I came out here. I overheard you and my son talking, and I took an interest." You blink, shocked. "But aren't you worried about me having to compete against your son?"Shikamaru shakes his head. "Not one bit. I've already trained him the best I could, now up to his mother. If he can't beat you by his own merit then he doesn't deserve to. Besides, I saw something in you when you were fighting. It's not just tactical intelligence, but something else. There's a bit of a thrill seeker in you, isn't there?" You shrug. "I guess so. I do enjoy fighting a lot."
>>44114617Shikamaru chuckles. "It's more than that. You've got the guts to bet it all on one small chance, and that's why I really want to train you. That's how I was at your age, and I know that better than anyone else in this village, I can hone that trait." You smile from ear to ear. "That's fantastic! When can we start?" Shikamaru checks his watch. "Hmm..now." The two of you both walk towards the training field, and arrive not long after.It's early in the afternoon, and the trees are swaying gently in the breeze. It's bright and sunny, with few clouds. You stand across from Shikamaru, who has his hands in his pockets. "Okay, for this month, I've planned a curriculum of training sessions. I've already deduced what jutsu of mine will be the most helpful to you, and what order to train you in. Over the course of this month, just tell me what you'd like to learn and I'll teach you as best as I can. Shall we get started?"(You have thirty days to train. Spending time on certain areas will increase the relevant stat, and Shikamaru will teach you Jutsu he knows. As an Elite Jounin he is capable in all forms of combat, most notably Genjutsu and Non-elementals Ninjutsu. He does not know Water Jutsu.)(Current Stats Taijutsu: 1.5Ninjutsu: 1.5Genjutsu: 2.0Strength: 1.5Speed: 2.0Intelligence: 3.5Chakra Control: 2.0Stamina: 2.0)(+ = slightly, ++ = moderate, +++ = greatly)>A.

If we ever run into Sarada's dad, would he be willing to teach us his perfect balancing techniques?
>>44114636So are we planning out all thirty days, Mini?
>>44114636>A. Genjutsu. (3 Days. Stat up++, Chakra Control+, New Jutsu)
>>44114096>he works 12 hour shifts 6 days a weekFor that, the pay and benefits better be fucking god-tier.

>>44114636Are we planning it all now?If So;9 Days of Genjutsu8 of Taijutsu 10 of NinjutsuThat gives us 3 days left, personally I'd go with 2 days of sealing and 1 medical. But might just be better to use them up on another genjutsu training sessionIf it's just our first session then,>A. Genjutsu. (3 Days. Stat up++, Chakra Control+, New Jutsu)
>>44114761Genjutsu is useless against anyone with special eyes, like Sarada, Mari and Himawari, not counting any other ninja with sensory capabilities. still would ruin Boruto's or Shikadai's days done right though. just be aware.
>>44114803Actually Byakugan doesn't stop non-visual genjutsu. That's the sharingan's thing
>>44114761I'll support this, if this is how things are going to work. Maybe cycle through things, do Gen, Tai, Sealing, Gen, Nin, Gen, Tai, Sealing, and then some medical on the last day.
>>44114849True, But they'll see us preparing it and can check our illusion against actual chakra flows we can't block to my knowledge. Not useless per se' but harder to land a hit on than Rock Lee during the Prelim under the 5th gate, since they'll just release it as soon as we hit them with it.
>>44114803Well yes and no. You're right in that most illusions won't work, but i think the sound stuff still would. All those people are going to be end-tier enemies in a tournament anyway. I mean you also have to consider the vast majority of potential opponents are not going to be rocking magic-eye tricks.My main issue with our training is that we shouldn't be training for just a tournament, but to just be a better ninja. and Genjutsu is our primary strength. Also It gives us free boosts in chakra control, which is great, because it means more attacks, and means we can do more with our trump card.
>>44114636>>B. Taijutsu (4 days. Stat up++, Strength+, Speed+, Stamina+)
>>44114636Right now, given our strengths, I think we'd be best served amping our Genjutsu, then our Ninjutsu, then medical and maybe Sealing. Sealing if only so we could maybe make better use of our trump card family seal.
Right now you're just training for the next few days. Pick ONE option, it's one step at a time instead of one single session.
>>44114636We should keep in mind we need light activity towards the end. Wouldn't do to be exhausted for the exams. So keep taijutsu towards the start, and following it up with medical seems apt.If we're planning it all out in advance:>tai, med, nin, seal, tai, med, nin, gen, gen, med, med, sealOtherwise, start with:>>B. Taijutsu (4 days. Stat up++, Strength+, Speed+, Stamina+)
>>44115065Oh, and also if it could eventually let us make explosive tags cuz damn, we could make good use of that shit. Illusions or not.
>>44115094I think the consensus is Genjutsu.

"I'd like to improve my Genjutsu, if I can. They've proven to be the most useful weapons in my arsenal, from what I can tell."Shikamaru grins. "I was hoping you'd say that. It's clearly one of your strong points, and you're criminally under trained in Genjutsu for the tactics that you should be capable of utilizing. For the next three days I'm going to work your mind to the bone in order to teach you a powerful technique that I think you'll put to great use. It's one that had me cornered in my own preliminaries match, against a Genin of the Sound Village."You raise an eyebrow. "The Sound Village?"He nods. "Orochimaru's personal goons. This girl I fought used auditory based Genjutsu to trap me, and there wasn't much I could do about it. I turned it around in the end, but she caught me off guard nonetheless. The reason I mention this is because I noticed your usage of bells and Genjutsu. If you mix this technique with your others, it'd be much more effective."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRW-docvWxAHe begins your training, and you go through a grueling series of mental exercises. You repeatedly attempt to cast the most powerful illusions you can muster on Shikamaru for the entire day, until you're a sweaty, sleepy mess. He tells you to meet here tomorrow morning at 5 AM Sharp, and you head home for some sleep.
>>44114636>A. Genjutsu. (3 Days. Stat up++, Chakra Control+, New Jutsu)Sealing might be useful in the future, but it feels like more of a long term investment
>>44115467The next day goes about the same. You completely expend your chakra until about noon, practicing controlling it in the most efficient way possible while creating the largest effect. After lunch, Shikamaru teaches you the process for the Paralyzing Bells Jutsu. You tire a wire through a bell attatched you a senbon, and fling it into a tree. This jutsu requires no handseals, creating an ever larger strain on your chakra control. Beads of sweat drop down your forehead as you focus the jutsu through the wire, before tugging gently on the bell. Sure enough it rings clearly, and you see Shikamaru wince and drop to his knees. "It's working. The first phase of this jutsu is paralysis. If you're quick, you could finish off an opponent now. But the second phase sets in soon after.."Shikamaru waits a few seconds, before standing back up. "There. Now there's all sorts of illusions of you surrounding you. The issue is that they're all within a fixed position, perfectly mimicking you. So while now you can throw a lot of illusions along with your attacks, out in the open it won't take long for the opponent to realize which one is real. This is when you mix in other moving clones, or substantial clones if you have them. It's an additional layer of defense that hampers your opponent at the same time."You spend the rest of the night training the technique, and wake up on the third morning to meet with Shikamaru again. You've learned the Paralyzing Bells Jutsu!

I almost wonder what would happen if we spammed nothing but Genjutsu the entire time.
>>44115890You'd get the Roku fight again
>>44115890I think if we spammed any one thing we'd become the best out of the exam go-ers but genjutsu is a pretty unrewarding way to go about proceeding with the exams as later on it just doesnt work on anybody because it would have felt too bullshit in the anime to work
>>44115890We'd destroy all of these scrubs with no genjutsu defenses.
>>44115951Not necessarily. We can already stop people from moving altogether. If we can get some jounin level jutsu going, the only one who could really be a threat is Sadara. And some genjutsu can even get past the sharingan.
>>44115890>spam GenjutsuInfinite Genjutsu Works
>>44115890We win until we meet someone much better at Genjutsu then us and then get mindfucked.
>>44115971And some genjutsu can even get past the sharingan.Mostly Mangekyo Sharingan genjutsu. But we'd also have issues with people who are good at Genjutsu release or someone who one shots us before we finish laying the Genjutsu down.
>>44115999This. We would be all "YES WE'RE GONNA KILL-" "Actually you were in my genjutsu all along!" and ragequit.
>>44116013Let's be honest here, if there's someone at this exam who can one-shot us before we even pop off a genjutsu, we're fucked anyways.>>44116034I thought we were the Keikaku genjutsu user. It's kinda our thing. Are you saying that we aren't even good at the thing we've been best at so far?
>>44116053We really should practice SOME Taijutsu, a fast ninja is not a dead ninja. A few points ins peed, not to mention Stamina may save our ass.
>>44116016Itachi wins because he can still move his finger. Checkmate.
>>44116053There's a limit to what one month can do. Our real advantage after all is /tg/ having infinite time to plan, and that's probably better facilitated with a variety of tricks rather than overspecializing.
>>44116053There's bound to be someone better than us at genjutsu at some point. Isnt the topic of this quest all about us being scrubs?
"I'd like to train my Taijutsi. It's one of my weakest areas, and I need to round it out so that I don't have any gaps in my defenses." Shikamaru strokes his short goatee. "I agree. Getting outclassed up close is going to be a recurring problem in the role of a strategist, so it's wise to invest some time in being able to defend yourself. To tell you the truth, I was actually hoping you'd ask me to train you in Taijutsu."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pV9a4DaxhCsShikamaru leaps from across the training field to attack with a swift right straight, putting you on the defensive immediately. You glean a bit of what a Jounin is capable of as you do everything you can to hang on, dodging and defending against Shikamaru's attacks. Fists fly by your face, and bruises start to develop on your arms as you're forced to block.
>>44116016Shit mangmy sides
>>44116096This goes on for what must feel like an age, until Shikamaru suddenly breaks away. "Now I've got an idea of what you need to work on. Five hundred sit ups, seven hundred push ups, and five hundred squats. After that we'll engage for ten more minutes, then a five minute break. Then three hundred high jumps and three hundred chin ups. Then we engage one last time, and take a half hour break. Repeat until the day is over, or you can't move. Got it?"You gulp. "Isn't that a little extreme?"He grins. "We don't have a lot of time. You want to get stronger, right?"After four days of grueling training, you find yourself empowered. Your build is slightly thicker, while also having cut down on excess body fat. Your newfound skill in Taijutsu is a self-taught instinct based style.

>>44115890well we'd kick ass until we come across someone who can counter our bullshit, then we'd be screwed since specialist are really only good as long as there gimmick works but once it stops working they're kinda useless.
>>44116116>>C. Ninjutsu (5 days. Stat up +++, New Jutsu)

>>44116190We end up getting cancer
I think we should train charisma. We're fucking failing hard to give an impression of normalcy amongst our peers. Sai sensei when?
>>44116190Who knows.At some point I want to combine water + healing for cancer jutsu.
>C. Ninjutsu (5 days. Stat up +++, New Jutsu)
We should do medical and sealing next vote, only 2 days spent which is real nice
>>44116199The impression of normalcy is what frightens thme
>>44116217It's not normalcy if we're giving off bad vibes is it?
>>44116188Oh...chaned to ninjutsu then
>>44116217So whose the least frighten then?
>>44116199Are we not the most 'normal' person around?
Normalcy doesn't look like a real word, holy fuck. It looks abnormal
>>44116236Delete your other post and revote, easier to count that way for mini right?
>>44116237Our teammates, probably.
>>44116228It is we're horrifically outclassed, friendly when by all right we should be terrified, and smiling all the time. They're scared because us acting normal, in a totally normal way, is abnormal in the extreme, normally.
>>44116247I said give an impression anon, we dont convey normalcy to others, that's for sure. They're scared the crap out of us.
>>44116217Why some frighten people? We just smile a lot is all. Don't you like smiles?
>>44116282Acting relaxed in a harsh enviroment it's abnormal then is not normal behaviour to begin with right? HOLY FUCK LET'S STOP MY BRAIN HURTS.

Seems like the only group of people that aren't afraid of us is basically most of the foreign groups (maybe) and Nyoko's group from our interactions with them.
>being a normal friendly dude is freaking people outGoddamn it we'll never pick up chicks this way, we need a tragic incident to shift our personality
>>44116379Hugo go back to your quest please. Or is that Xanth? Either way, shooo!yes I know it's the FUCKMOTHERING BERSERKER Guts.
>>44116363We already attract Mari and Salad Plus we save Hima and in good term with snow princess because we are polite and friendly.What else do you want
>>44116363Doesn't seem to be weirding out the foregin groups, just the people from our village.
>>44116412I'm just tryina smile here mang, why you have to get up on my grill let me be happy.
>>44116116>C. Ninjutsu (5 days. Stat up +++, New Jutsu)After this we should put some days into Medical and SealingMaybe two for each? Anyone?
>>44116427Is not your quest!!!
>>44116415Please at best we don't piss salad off with an overwhelming desire to fuck her. Which granted apparently puts us above 99% of boys
>>44116415Mari and Salad are in the freaked out section, we aren't winning them over anytime soon, especially Salad with that tinfoil hat of hers
After the training, you meet with Shikamaru once again to plan your next step. You tell him that you'd like to learn some more Ninjutsu, and he responds in an instant. Apparently he already had something in mind for you in this aspect as well. "I'm going to teach you a Jutsu I think you'll love. It's essentially a direct enhancement of the normal Clone Jutsu. It's sort of similar to Genjutsu in the way it's preformed, but still considered a Non-Elemental Ninjutsu. The name of this technique is the Haze Clone Jutsu. It creates dozens of clones at once, but unlike normal clones, these can't be destroyed by ordinary means. Not only that, but seeing as they're chakra constructs and not illusions, the Sharingan can't simply disperse them with a glance. The Byakugan is accurate enough to measure the difference between your chakra and theirs, however, so be careful."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioE_O7Lm0I4The next five days are no where as difficult as before, the previous training of both your mind and body coming together to enhance the power of your Ninjutsu. Being so balanced in both aspects causes your chakra reserves to swell, and you master the Haze Clone Jutsu within two days. Shikamaru decides to teach you the Shadow Shuriken Jutsu as well.
>>44116490Over the next two days, you learn how to hide a projectile attack within another. Shikamaru is so impressed by your progress that he tells you to take a day to rest at home, where you encounter your brother on his day off as well. He tells you that he has time to teach you one jutsu for the day.(Jounin Training Bonus! Training your body and mind separately before training Ninjutsu enhanced your training. +New Jutsu, +Stamina.)

I just want to put it out there that i dont think we'll be well served by putting points evenly into everything. We need to put something, or preferably 2 things above average if we want to be a proper threat and not just a good back up for people who can do stuff better. I doubt we'll ever be the best at Taijutsu, nut our chakra control is real good so maybe we should focus on skills that use that?
>>44116504>D. Starch Syrup Capture Field (Takes 2 days. Must reserve a day one week from now to finish training.)
>>44116504>C. Learn Hydro Sword Jutsu (Takes 2 days. Must reserve a day one week from now to finish training.)Melee Ninjutsu are always something to be wary of, if the user can apply them properly. If we push for another bout of Genjutsu and Taijutsu, we'll be able to do that.

>>44116504>C. Learn Hydro Sword Jutsu (Takes 2 days. Must reserve a day one week from now to finish training.)We need something strong other than paralysis poison

Learn Hydro Sword Jutsu (Takes 2 days.

Mini can we study anatamy at home?
>>44116612Up to a point, yeah. Thats why im just putting it out there, since we dont have many days left and the cost is getting higher.
>>44116587I mainly picked it too because, Im assuming it will stick around longer then the bullet as well. Dont want to waste a bunch of chakra you know?
Hideki gives you the rundown on the jutsu and teaches you what he can of it, however it's no easy process. This is the highest ranking Ninjutsu that you've ever attempted to learn, and you're going to have to reserve a second day of training in order to practice it properly. You have some idea of what you're capable of, though. Once you've completed training, the Hydro Sword should be about the size of a short sword, and be as strong as steel. It'll require some small amount of chakra to maintain for long periods of time, but otherwise is cost effective to summon and disperse repeatedly. Your brother tells you that if you specialize in this weapon, it can become one of the most versatile tools that you have.After this training, you head back the next day to meet with Shikamaru. You have 18 days left.>A. Genjutsu. (5 Days. Stat up++, Chakra Control+, New Jutsu) >B. Taijutsu (8 days.

>>44116765>>B. Taijutsu (8 days. Stat up++, Strength+, Speed+, Stamina+, New Jutsu, Strength/Speed/Stamina Specialized training unlocked. [Option not available during rest period] )i cant resist that stamina upgrade
>>44116765>A. Genjutsu. (5 Days. Stat up++, Chakra Control+, New Jutsu
>>44116765>E. Sealing Jutsu (1 day. Chakra Control+)Might as well mix this in somewhere. We can do the sword training after.

>>44116814It's the kekkei genkai that allows illusionary wounds take in genjutsu to cause real wounds on the target.
We've got only 18 days left, just save stuff like medical jutsu and sealing jutsu which is a 1 day affair as left overs for when we have too few days to train gen/nin/taijutsu
>D. Medical Jutsu (1 Day. Chakra Control+)
>>44116889I dont think we have any kekkei genkai. We have the tattoos that's the only shit we inherited.
>>44116891yeah but if we learn them now it leads to other things which we might actually want
Going to do a revote to narrow it down. It seems balanced between these three.>A. Genjutsu>B. Sealing Jutsu>C. Medical Jutsu
>>44116953>B. Sealing Jutsu
>>44116953>>B. Sealing JutsuLet's try it at least. Then finish the water sword
>>44116953>>C. Medical Jutsu
>>44116953>C. Medical Jutsu
>>44116953>>B. Sealing Jutsu
1 day training +Genjutsu training lets us finish our water jutsu.
>>44116953 >C. Medical Jutsu
>>44116953>>A. GenjutsuEasy choice
>>44116953>C. Medical JutsuOr Sealing. We'll get to both eventually.
>>44116953>A. GenjutsuProlly too late, but throwing my vote in. It's what we do!
You ask Shikamaru to explain the basics of Sealing Jutsu to you. He goes on to tell you how Sealing Jutsu are probably some of the most important and powerful jutsu in the world, used to contain the Jinchuriki and for other means of protection. Almost entirely used for supplement or defense, they're considered a trademark art of the Shinobi. He teaches you how to implant your chakra into ink so that you can construct a basic seal. The training is simple and relaxing compared to other trials, and you enjoy what feels like a little bit of time off. You notice that your chakra control seems to have sharpened up as well, the results of continual training. (Chakra Control up to 2.5)------That's going to be all for now, folks. Next thread you'll finish your training and take on your first opponent in the finals! I'll stick around to answer some questions.
>>44117212So what's Shikamaru's assessment of our training? We run into anyone while training? Anyone try to watch us? Here anything from our team?
>>44117212Could you remind us who our opponent is and what we know of him?
>>44117212Mr. Mini, can you confirm if Himawari wears blue stripped panties in this setting? And how about Sarada and Mari?
>>44117212what's a basic seal do?
>>44117314The most important question. A life or death matter.
>>44117302He thinks it's going super well.You've been fairly isolated while training, as intended. Haven't heard a word from your team.>>44117308His name is Usagi, alias, "The Archer."You know he uses a bow. You missed the fight he was in, but I was thinking of doing a write up of a chunin exam fight if it's wanted>>44117330nothing, teaches you the foundation of sealing>>44117314classified
>>44117212So how did Temari and Shikadai take the whole Dad's training the enemy thing?
>>44117212We still have that Tiger Pelt right? if We stuy enough Sealing, could we make something with that?
>>44117347>He thinks it's going super well.How does our rate of improvement compare to the other ninjas?
>>44117363Shikadai's happy you have a teacher, Temari doesn't like it but she's taking it as a competition with her husband so she's getting sucked into it regardless.>>44117377You do, and I suppose you could.
>>44117347>chunin exam fight if it's wantedyes please, and thank you!Who's training Sarada? How's bro doing? Our tiger pelt a trophy now?
>>44117377We could seal a set pair of weapons, tags, or bombs into the pelt. Or even make it a reverse-seal so you can always summon the tiger pelt back!
>>44117389What if we mention it to Shikamaru, ask his advice (as our teacher, during a sealing lesson) what the best, most versatile application for something like that would. be
>>44117389so how'd our brother react when he found out we found a teacher and then how'd he did he react when he found out who it was?
>>44117314>>44117332>>44117347...Why is it that I can just see a rival village sending high level ninja on an espionage mission just to discover this?I mean, there's gotta be another Jiraiya out there somewhere. It's not like Leaf has a monopoly on perverts.
>>44117347Thanks for today, Mini. Are you running again soon™?
>>44117389Would it be possible to use poison with the water sword? Maybe add a few drops and have it have the property of that poison?
>>44117389Each one of the choices led to a different teacher, right?What were the other ones we would have gotten?
>>44117385Currently, highly accelerated. But that's only because of the intensely thick foundation of fundamentals you've learned, and the order in which you trained yourself. After this month you'll find that training will start to take much more time.>>44117421He'd tell you to use it however you want with whatever you know.>>44117425He was really happy that you'd gotten a Jounin as famous as Shikamaru to teach you. This is a guy that's first in line to be Hokage if Naruto croaks.
>>44117446I'd think you'd have to have a lot, so as not to dilute it.
>>44117449I think Mini mentioned earlier in the threads that our teacher was already pre-determined.
>>44117444yeh>>44117446This would be a Boil element technique>>44117449Nah, Shikamaru was going to be your teacher. Each choice just led to that in a. different way
>>44117446Just invent a poison sword technique.We'll just need a jutsu to cast infinite poison...
>>44117455>He was really happy that you'd gotten a Jounin as famous as Shikamaru to teach you.is he bragging about us to his co-workers?
>>44117389>>You do, and I suppose you could.Do you have anything in mind in that vein, or would you like, take suggestions?
>>44117455>This is a guy that's first in line to be Hokage if Naruto croaks.Now when you say if...do you mean when?
>>44117483Now I wish we saw how the Need Teacher Badly recruitment signpost plan would've gone
>>44117514The most realistic thing you could learn to do in time for the tournament is to seal an explosive tag into it for a trap.But it'd destroy it. It'd be more practical to just seal pre-poisoned weaponry on bandages on your wrists, or something.>>44117528>implying Naruto and Sasuke aren't the BBEG duo you'll have to take on single handedly in the end
>>44117535It'd be a funny little write up at least. Probably hitting shikimaru in his funny bone.
>>44117455Minmin. Can you write Sarada,Mari, Nyoko and any person that you like their reaction when we became finished Roku or just after our match? I love personal opinions and reactionsIf its a drag then just ignore itAnd thanks for spoiling us with the training
>>44117548....What if we learn how to seal more tattoos?
>>44117528Now now, considering all the shit he went through for his shit friends, i'd say he deserves to not get killed off.
>>44117565sealing tattoos is a dangerous branch of biological study. That's Orochimaru's game. See: He's the creator of the Heaven Seal, as well as all of the other seals the Sound 4 had.
>>44117548speaking of poisons will we have a chance to restock on our gear before the fight? Because I know a few of us, me included, wanted to check out the flower shop to see what kind of poisons they had to help us out with some of the more pain in the ass fights.
>>44117548So what you mean is, We should save it for something better, got it.
>>44117595Will we get a chance to socialize with our team before our next match?
Could we study anatomy at home after training?
>>44117589I'd say it's time he was."Don't cry, Sakura. I got my dream, and I like to think I did pretty well. Now you're all strong enough that I don't need to be here."
>>44117595I'll second this anon's post>>44117560
>>44117620I hope so, we need some Hallucinogens to go with our genjutsu. Maximum shenanigans.>>44117548Of the other participants we know, who most wants to face us?also thirding>>44117560
>>44117595Well I meant as emergency back-up seals. Maybe temporary tattoos with sealing symbols that can come off with one use?We can sell them for fifty cents to other ninjas at the ninja market places!Make a fortune.
>>44117560I'd like the basic reaction of all the characters we've interacted with.
>>44117723I guess emulating this guy is my main idea.Body Make Up! Master of Disguise! Ninja!
>>44117620You'll go shopping the night before the matches.>>44117635No, you don't know where they are. >>44117636No, you're exhausted by the time you get home. You wake up, eat, train, eat, train, eat, go to sleep, wake up, repeat.>>44117560Sarada: I knew it. It's only going to get worse, too. A whole month to train..I'll have to push myself even harder to stay ahead.Mari: I never even fathomed he'd beat Roku..Nyoko: Life sure is interesting, heheNaruto: Where did this come from?Shikamaru: I see potentialKonohamaru: I don't believe it. It's just how..he was.Ai: Even more resourceful than I'd thought. Surprising us all again and again..Hanto: Such a lust for victory..! I love it! Yosuke: I knew I sensed that he was different, that day. Himawari: It's amazing that Takeshi would come this far, only to push even further..Boruto: *farting noises*I think that's most, I'll add anyone I forgot on request
>>44117723Sealing Tats are permanent unless removed by a jutsu. Temporary ones are the types placed on inanimate objects.
>>44117810can we get a character sheet sometime
>>44117810>Boruto: *farting noises*Truly one of the great minds of our time.
>>44117810The snake lad...But thanks for the opinion Minmin
>>44117810Fucking Boruto, his sheer level of little shittitude is hilariousAnd I'm almost flattered by Hanto, though I'm still salty at how he ditched us
>>44117836I'll give you a list of all your jutsu, if you want to check it just refer back to this thread.>Transformation>Clone>Replacement>False Place>False Sound>Paralyzing Bells>Shadow Shuriken>Haze Clone>Mystical Palm(Soon: Hydro Sword Jutsu)and now your "Skills", things acquired through training>Enhanced Aim>Intelligence>Basic Taijutsu Training >Evasive (Speed focused Taijutsu)>Poisoner (rapid poison loading)
>>44117810whats the bare minimum we need to achive to get promoted to Chunin
>>44117548We just have to go full Aizen on them.>"Sasuke, i finally killed him."> "Did you Naruto? Look closer."And then he killed Sasuke because he thought he was us.
>>44117945it's this easy thoughhttp://pastebin.com/Lkk4dmMC
>>44117945Can shadow shuriken be used with senbon and kunai too?
>>44117989SaradaStop with your conspiracies. Takeshi is a polite young man
>>44118000Now just put our stats up there as well
>>44117978There's no hard standard. They just decide whether or not you pass, regardless of how many matches you've won or loss. Of course, winning the tourney is pretty much a promised pass>>44118002yeah>>44118000everyone use this for current character sheet, update as stuff is acquired
>>44117945Wait, when did we learn Shadow Shuriken?! There all sorts of stuff Iwould have been writing in if we knew that.
>>44118002and to add to that, if we use shadow shuriken on a poisoned weapon will it copy the poison as well?
>>44118027Learned it as a bonus during your Ninjutsu lesson this thread with Shikamaru.
>>44118022>everyone use this for current character sheet, update as stuff is acquiredInclude it in future OP posts
>>44118027Picked up during the 5 day ninjutsu training went so well we picked It up with the Haze clone Jutsu.>>44118033>>44118045Mini?
>>44118033It's not that the weapons are copied, it's that you throw two weapons at once, and hide the second in the shadow of the first.
>>44118013That's what he wants you to think. HE'S ALREADY INSIDE YOUR HEAD!
>>44118079or is he just inside yours Sarada?
>>44118060right sorry, for some reason I was thinking of the move the third hokage used when fighting orochimaru where he used mass shadow clone jutsu on a shuriken
Wait a second.Mini, does Sarada think about us often?Does she go over scenarios in which we approach her regularly in her head?Does she wonder just when it'll finally happen, and she'll open the door just to find us there for no other reason than her?Does she whittle away the hours wondering just how much WE might be thinking of her?Does she have a crush on us?
>>44117810>Konohamaru: I don't believe it. It's just how..he was.Wonder who he is referring too there.
>>44118103Not even the tinfoil hat can protect us now.
>>44118060which jutsu is it thats Shadow Clone, except for projectiles?
>>44118170I do too. Believe it!>>44118171Who says it ever did?
>>44118138reasonablenow, for the one chunin fight write up I'll do, I've got several choices present>Yosuke vs Naota>Yasu vs Jiro>Usagi vs Inoichi >>44118184Shadow Clone Shuriken Jutsu
>>44118168>Does she have a crush on us?Kek.She thinks we're some sort of psychopathic genius who has fooled everyone but her
>>44118214>Usagi vs Inoichi
>>44118214>>Usagi vs Inoichi
>>44118168KekSarada's paranoia will really never stop being the gift that keeps on giving
>>44118219Takeshi is the result of Orochimaru's experiments to create the perfect fusion of Aizen, Keyser Söze, Ozymandias and DIO. He has succeeded.
>>44118374Nah we're more Joseph Joestarhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMrKDBWZeYs
>>44117810>Himawari: It's amazing that Takeshi would come this far, only to push even further..Yeah I feel like if anyone outside our team isn't going to become convinced we're a sociopath it's Himawari.
>>44118489Well, we DID save her life, and have only been nice and pleasant to her. She's younger than anyone else here.
Usagi vs. InoichiThe names on the screen stop, and the two combatants lock eyes from across the balconies. One is Inoichi, the son of Sai and Ino, and Genin of the Hidden Leaf. The other is known only as Usagi, a dark skinned, black haired boy from the Stone Village. In his stone headband is the single feather of a falcon, and his eyes are narrow and dark as almonds. He draws his long, wooden, ornate bow and leaps down to the arena. Inojin (his name is Inojin dunno where I got Inoichi) leaps down as well, taking his scroll and paintbrush out. Shikamaru looks between the two foes.Inojin smiles. "Well, got anything to say?"Usagi remains completely motionless, glaring at Inojin with dark eyes.Inojin shrugs. Shikamaru throws down his hand, and leaps away. In an instant, Inojin has dipped his brush in ink and begun to make rapid strokes on the scroll. After a second, he forms a single handseal, and a painted wolf leaps off of the scroll in front of him. It snarls and growls, as Usagi gently cocks his head to the side. He seems curiously confused. Inojin keeps making strokes on the paper. "Well..if you're just going to stand there, might as well take advantage of it."Two painted birds fly off of the paper as well, and begin to circle Inojin. Just as the pale boy goes to dip his brush in ink again, he's showered by a black mist of the substance.The sound of two arrows striking the stone behind him rings out. His birds are destroyed, and when he looks back to Usagi, the boy seems just as still as before.Inojin grumbles. "That was..fast."
>>44118530Usagi nocks an arrow in his bow, and gets a bead on Inojin. The arrow shimmers with chakra for a few seconds before launching forward. Inojin leaps to the left to the dodge, while his wolf leaps to the right. It's futile, however, as the arrow explodes with charged energy. Wooden fragments fly out like shrapnel, shredding Inojin's skin. Thankfully he covered his face with his arms.He stands up, and blood is trickling down many places on his body. He looks down and groans, before looking up and seeing Usagi with another nocked arrow."I give!" Inojin yells. With his sort of wounds, there's no way he'd be able to dodge these arrows.Usagi is the winner. He calmly makes his way back up to the balcony, never speaking once. He sets his bow onto his back, and leans against the wall.
>>44118528Honestly it's less the "saved her life" part and more the whole "hey, how you holding up? yeah it's hard for me too" conversation we had.
>>44118586Yeah, too bad Sarada never picked up on that, she is going full tin foil hat. She figures that talent and hard work alone are not enough when you have some people that are desperate enough for it.
>>44118749Anyone else thinks we could Take Salad down easy if we dosed with a hallucinogen given how scared of us she is?
>>44118866Again, she's not afraid of youShe's just positive that you're not someone to go easy on.
>>44118866Magic shroom gas.Just would have to require OOC knowledge since in character he has no idea how she feels about him
>>44118896well the whole point of a hallucinogen is to make the enemy trips balls, best way to give a bad trip is too make em scared.>>44118894If we make it far enough to face her she'll be a little afraid I'm sure.
>>44118894So did Nyoko make another ice castle somewhere for training purposes?
>>44118551...That was over quick.
>>44118993Inojin was kinda super outclassed.
>>44118993>>44119042Hopefully Takeshi is faster.Plus our illusions can help greatly.
>>44119042Yeah, support ninja against a shoota.
>>44118749Well I mean she wasn't exactly there, and honestly the singleminded "LET ME STUDY THAT DAMN BOOK" probably didn't help as far as thinking we're a sociopath goes.
>>44118933We're just too wimpy for anyone to really fear us, even if we get far enough to face her I doubt the match will be anything but a David and Goliath situationActually now I'm trying to decide who would be the more interesting next opponent should we win against Archer, Mari or Sarada?
>>44119061Well we took Taijutsu training to be faster.>>44119072Illusion spam him and hope to nail hi with a poison.>>44119131Mari probably, She's been grudging hard.
>>44119131Sarada, would be interesting to go medical ninja on each other for a bit.
>>44119191She prolly knows neut poison which will suck for us.
>>44119181That she has though I'd be incredibly tempted to give up before she can hit us again if we fought her, which probably wouldn't be too good for our promotion chances, though the sheer salt it'd create may very well be worth it
>>44119421Eh it'd be funny, but really I'd rather normalize that whole relationship which NOT doing that would probably do. Well... unless we somehow managed to win, in which case she'd be pissed off that she didn't beat us properly back when she had the chance.
>>44119459same my plan to beat her is to goad her into using that technique she sued on the assassin since she was visibily creaky after it. We prep a substitution, she hits us with it we poof and nail her with a paralytic poison kunai.
All right thread is dying, So who's best girl and why?
Now that I think about it, Mari's thoughts on us must be pretty interesting considering she initially got that grudge on us because we gave up before she could even hit us because we were cowardly/smart enough to know we had no chance of defeating her anymore at that point, but then she saw us practically kill ourselves against Roku, whom from the start, and at the end seemed like a guy we had no chance against, I'm guessing she'd be extra pissed if we didn't act as determined against her as we did with Roku
>>44119643I'm divided between Ai and Nyoko. They both have interesting personalities.
>>44119643It's between Nyoko, Sarada, and Ai for me.
>>44119643Nyoko or Himawari, Ai feels more like a bro
>>44119643Sarada, her paranoia and genuine worrying over our welfare is cute, Mari's nice too, though we still need to pay her back for destroying those scrolls
>>44119643Mari for violent tsun, Nyoko for mature grace.
>>44119728Eh we'll just tell her it's all her fault we actually matter now, if we had just coasted through the forest of death who knows what we'd be like now.
>>44119829She might take that as a compliment, or us being insane. Is Salad hears of it she'll definitely think we're crazy.>>44119728Beat her in the finals is best revenge.>>44119643My picks are Himwari and Sarada. For nice girl and tsun respectively.
>>44119643I'm defo deep in Himawari's camp, I think there's actually a decent shot she has a crush on us too, given the way her sensei shuffled her closer to us after giving us a weird smirk.We also mutually saved each others lives back then, a ship with those two would work as a proper team.I don't like how Salad and Mari are always making us prove ourselves to them, fucking cunts can't just like us for her we are unless we can beat the shit out of them. Nyoko looks down on us too, but she's more of the "ara ara~" pick because she's mature, I just happen to not be into that. I don't wanna be the dog of any relationship so all three of them are out.I'm lukewarm for Ai, I'm pretty sure she's dead on the inside anyway, we can probably soften her up with a LOT of time, but things are most likely always gonna stay professional.
Now the important question, before the thread is archived.How would each of the girls prefer their ramen?
>>44120063Nyoko's never looked down on us, don't know where you are getting that from.
>>44120107Yeah, Nyoko was one of the two people besides our teammates who thought we could win.
>>44120076Ask mini.>>44120107I kinda get that vibe from her too, but I think it's more a She's nobility and we're a bumpkin type thing.>>44120063Neither Sarada and Mari make us prove ourselves, they just think we're shit. I want to make them regret thinking that.
>>44120202I want to make them regret thinking we're shit too, however that desire is unrelated to the degree to which I would consider them best girls.
>>44120063>Nyoko looks down on us tooWhen did she do that?
So who wants to bet that Mari will follow us around demanding a rematch if we beat her?
>>44120427It's kind of a given that she doesn't considering she's royalty and we're a peasant.You don't have to actively hate on someone to look down on them. Technically I look down on my cat as an inferior lifeform, that doesn't mean I don't like her.
>>44120471not DEMANDING... but i think she'll want one eventually
>>44120499Just because you're of higher birth doesn't mean you look down on everyone else. Stop projecting.
>>44120540She's a tsundere, of course she'll demand it, if only to make herself exceptionally clear and not give us the wrong idea.
So which named opponents do you anticipate giving us the most trouble? I was thinking Sarada for her null genjutsu, monstrous strength, over all excellence, sharingan and likely null poison. Also Mari and Himawari to an extent..
>>44120986Boruto for just being an insane powerhouse. The kid is crazy strong.
>>44121051True, thankfully our trumps and most of our moves work on him, not her. Nyoko might be an issue too if we start relying on haze clones and our water blade.
>>44121117Nyoko might be a bit easier though, we saw her way of fighting plenty of times. The problem is her speed.
>>44121175Her Ice pretty much fucks up our water, and if she hits us once we're in deep. We'll need to Genjutsu her fast to have a chance.
>>44121117>having a mass of water on our hand while fighting an ice manipulatorYeah, that's a very, very big problem
>>44121175Not to mention she's a crafty one, she basically made the naruto version of a solar flare during her match.
