This is Boruto Quest, a quest set in the universe of Naruto. It is during the generation of Naruto's son 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 Chunin 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, and your jack of trades skill set have brought you far. You have just recently graduated to a Chunin after winning the final tournament. You've been regularly completing missions as a Chunin, and making progress in training. You have a busy week before your next mission.http://pastebin.com/Qsm6XN98
After you leave Kichiro's place, you take a look at the sky. It seems to be fairly early in the afternoon. The last half week has been fairly full of training, and today you're simply looking to take a break and relax shortly. Your recent defeat at the hands of Shozuku have weighed somewhat heavily on your mind, although by keeping busy with your career you avoid thinking about the subject. As you walk down the road, you think about who to go see next. Inside, you note that it could be good to become friends with people who might teach you something as well. Would it be worth investigating where Ai lives, also? There's also the vision that you recently had, thanks to the ritual Ino assisted you in. No matter how you look at it, something heavy is on the horizon. Oh well. Forget all that for now. You're out to relax.Who do you want to visit? >A. Shikadai>B. Go get something to eat>C. Sarada>D.

>>46571921>te] [Auto] 9>>46571985>>46572032>>46572196You decide that now is a good a time as any time try and see what Mari is up to. She's certainly someone you could benefit from training with, especially now that you have a real weapon. The village is rather busy, so you stick to the sides of the roads to avoid the traffic of people. After a while you make it to the weapon shop, and find Tenten manning the counter. She's dealing with several customers as you enter, but she gives you a small wave. Off to the side, Mari is wearing her work clothes with her hair tied back in a pony tail. She seems to be grumpily mopping up a spilled soft drink that someone brought in, although you clearly noticed a "no food or drink" sign outside the building. Stepping forward, you approach and say hello. She looks up, her grumpy face going to a neutral state. "Oh, it's you. Are you here to buy something? My mom can take care of you in a second.">A. I actually wanted to to ask if you were free to hang out this afternoon>B. I came to ask if you'd like to train later this week>C. I came here to find out if you wanna go on a date>D.

>>46572404>>A. I actually wanted to to ask if you were free to hang out this afternoon>D. Well, I was gonna challenge you to a spar, but I can see that you're busy with work
>>46572404>D. Well, I was gonna challenge you to a spar, but I can see that you're busy with workTime to get sword gains
>>46572404>>B. I came to ask if you'd like to train later this weekBecause your the best with weapons that I know of
>>46572404>D. Well, I was gonna challenge you to a spar, but I can see that you're busy with work
>>46572437But her mom's already married.
>>46572437I should have never provided that picture.
>>46572626>>46572652He's implying he's the first anon to link that picture in the quest. Which I guess is possible.
You look around, and notice that the store is busier than you usually remember. This must be their peak hours. It's the middle of the day, after all. "I was going to ask if you wanted to spar a little bit, but I can see that you're busy with work. Maybe some other time." She leans on the mop. "Did you have anything specific in mind, or do you just wanna get your butt kicked?"You nod. "I was hoping you could teach me to be better with my tanto. It's simple enough to swing a little blade like that, but seeing as your mom is making a special sheath for me I think I should get some actual skill with it."Mari nods, shutting her eyes briefly. She seems tired. "Well, that's a good idea to have. I could show you how to use a tanto sometime, sure." She stands up straight, leaning the mop against the counter and raising her arms above her head and stretching." I'm usually free later in the afternoon, unless I have a mission. Just stop by, and I'll be here. Except tomorrow though! Mission, heh." You can tell that you're not the only one busy with training. Of course someone like Mari wouldn't slack off, even in her downtime. Tenten calls out. "Mari, could you come here? I need you to grab some things out of the back real quick." She nods. "'Kay, mom!" She whips her head back to you, looking on with large, pale eyes. "I guess you're the customer who's getting the jet sheath, then? Mom should be able to tell you more about it, if you wait a little!" She runs off.Do you want to wait to talk to Tenten, or go ahead and leave?>A. Talk to Tenten and shop>B. Go somewhere else

>>46573259>A. I'll vote for the shopping. Besides, don't we need to invest more in the sheath R&D? I mean, I know we did it once already, but I don't remember how much it was.
So Mari time is on the schedule later this week. Good good
It's worth it to wait and talk to Tenten. It doesn't take very long for the customers in front of you to disperse, before you get you turn. As you approach, she leans on the counter and smiles. "My favorite customer! What can I do for you, today?" You chuckle, and rub the back of your head. "Well, I was actually here to see Mari, but she's busy right now. How's the sheath coming?"Tenten nods. "It's coming along smoothly. Your funds mostly went towards acquiring materials, although we have a good bit of budget from the village government. This weapon we're making could be the basis of the future of the Leaf's military!" You blink. "Really? What makes you say that?" Tenten takes out a diagram of the machine, and lays it on the glass counter. "The sheath is designed to attack with extreme speed and power, more than what a shinobi that isn't highly trained in Taijutsu could put out. It uses electromagnetism to propel to blade with great force. It could cover the physical weakness of many of our troops. This is the type of weapon that would have been really useful, during the war." You nod, understanding. "I'm honored to be the first to try it out then." Tenten smiles. "Well, you get the privilege for putting up the cash! Now, was there anything you needed?"(As far as I can tell there's nothing Tenten can sell you that you're not currently filled up on, unless you wanted to buy a puppet frame or extra explosive tags.)>A. Buy extra explosive tags. (Spend small, medium, or large amount of money. Nets you one tag, two tags, and three tags respectively. Small and Medium leave you with fair amount of money, but Large dips a little deeper into your funds. You would have a little less than half of what you walked in with.)>B. Talk about purchasing a puppet frame>C. Leave
>>46573777>>A. Buy extra explosive tags.medium

>>46573777>A. Buy extra explosive tags. (Spend small, medium, or large amount of money. Nets you one tag, two tags, and three tags respectively. Small and Medium leave you with fair amount of money, but Large dips a little deeper into your funds. You would have a little less than half of what you walked in with.)2 tags
>>46573777>B. Talk about purchasing a puppet frameLike a basic as shit one, something we can use for ambushes and shit
>>46573777>B. Talk about purchasing a puppet frame
>>46573777>>A. Buy extra explosive tags. (Spend small, medium, or large amount of money. Nets you one tag, two tags, and three tags respectively. Small and Medium leave you with fair amount of money, but Large dips a little deeper into your funds. You would have a little less than half of what you walked in with.)Medium.
>>46573777>B. Talk about purchasing a puppet frameI at least want to hear what she has.
>>46573777Can I put any money down in the sheath or is it being taken care of?
>>46574053it's being taken care of from this point on.You'll still need to buy it up front when it becomes available. That's really when you'll pay for the development, the initial fund was to kickstart the project.The payment is more for tenten's family, as it's not going to be as excessive as the ridiculous technological developments that went on prior. It's going to be expensive but within your price range, which is a monumental bargain for a prototype military weapon like this. That you don't even have permission to use. Tenten's just sort of doing what she wants, not that Naruto would object to this particularly.
>>46574115Actually why not both?Get 1 explosive and ask up on the puppet shit, just curious what the options are not really thinking about commiting
>>46573777>B. Let's at least take a look at puppetry, or at least get a general idea of how it could help us and what we would need to do to get gud at it.
>>46573777>C. LeaveSeems like most of the cakes like Takashi. This is good, milfs are a very good thing for a boy his age to be interested in
>>46573948Not without a few weeks of training, minimum. Also bulky to carry.>>46574203>git gud>starting this latetopkek
Since some people want to see the puppet options, how about we simply see what there is and depart? That sound fine to everyone?
>>46574462Sure, why not
>>46574405Yeah but we might be able to get something basic like blades that we can shoot at people and bend around in the airI definitely wont be suggesting we get an actual puppet but we might be able to get something basicMaybe even an armour piece with a bomb attached or poison spray that can be activated instantly with a chakra wire How fucking sneaky would that be, in taijutsu fight as we punch a flick our finger and suddenly poison senbon spew out of our side
>>46574462Sure, likely a waste of time though.>>46574512We'd still need to be a pretty good puppeteer for that and those come with weaknesses depending on build. Also expensive as fuck.
Looking over, you can see a couple of the frames for puppets in glass casing. They're faceless and wooden, and quite barren of equipment. Of course, they're just the frames. All the equipment has to be purchased separately, but the bodies are all you really need for training. You decide that it's at least worth asking what they're all about. Memories of the kind of power that Kagami wielded are a perfect example. Makoto also seemed to display some sort of skill with puppetry, using his sword. "How much are the puppet frames?"Tenten looks over. "These? Well, it depends on which one you want. I assume you have no experience with them, since I'm pretty much the only person in town that sells them. I have three humanoid ones on stock, which are what you want if you're starting out. You can custom order animal based ones, buuut I would wait until you're more advanced for those. Their control schemes are always different.""You sure seem to know a lot about puppetry." you state.She nods. "Well, it's a part of my business. I don't use them myself, but they're certainly an impressive shinobi tool. There's probably some workshop in the Sand village which puts me to shame though, heheh!"
>>46574616She walks over to the cases and points to a short, stocky puppet. It's limbs are thicker than the other two humanoid ones, and it's chest is somewhat barrel shaped. "This frame is sturdy, although a bit slower for it. It has plenty of interior space. Really, it's up to what you do with all that interior space that determines what it's capable of. Enough space to shield a fuel tank for a flamethrower, or perhaps some sort of generator for an electrical edge to it's attacks. Whatever your money and skill can afford."She moves over to a taller, much more humanoid puppet. This one is about the same size as you, in fact. "This is what I suggest for beginners. It's average in size and weight, and perfect for substitution jutsu. Puppeteers I've seen make the most out of this type by outfitting it with various poison attacks, or giving it a series of surprise melee installments."The third and final puppet is much taller than the other two, although it seems to be rather thin. She opens up the glass, and shows you the back. "This puppet is intended to specialize in melee, with it's light weight and long reach. Blades are common."You thank her for tell you about them, but say that you'd prefer to save your money for other things right now.>A. Leave>B. Purchase 2 explosive tags for a medium sum of money
>>46574462Sure, but if we're not gonna buy a puppet I wanna buy some explosives.
>>46574643>>B. Purchase 2 explosive tags for a medium sum of moneyThese are incredibly useful
>>46574643>>A. LeaveI do like the idea of later getting a small, say rabbit sized puppet, for sneak attacks, maybe surveillance if we can do with cameras.
>>46574643>A. LeaveIf theres no option to buy one might aswell leave, screw wasting money
>>46574643>B. I wish for more explosions.Willing to compromise and just buy one if need be, though.
>>46574736>wasting moneyHave you not seen how bloody useful even a single tag is?>>46574723That'd be incredibly complex
>>46574643>>B. Purchase 2 explosive tags for a medium sum of money
>>46574736>>A. lets save up some money, so we can buy a puppet in the future. Time to become the prodigy of the leaf.
The only thing you think you made need from Tenten in the near future on your mind, is explosives. She sets you up with a couple of the tags for a sum of cash and you are out the door, after saying goodbye. It's a bit later in the afternoon now, just about the evening. You could explore a little more, although people are probably eating dinner with their families just about now. You could go get something to eat yourself, or head home and see if your bro is making dinner.>A. Go to the barbecue restaurant>B. Go for Ramen>C. Go for Sushi>D. Go home and see if your Bro is there>E. Write-in
>>46575048>>D. Go home and see if your Bro is there

>>46575048Guys, since last thread we wanted to find where AI lives.COME ON.I know its different posters everytime, but lets atleast get to know where she lives.with our collective ADD, lets just do this once,>>Find out where Ai lives.
Lets go talk to Shikamaru he had a similar experience on his first mission and he might help us learn a new jutsu
What we should do is buy a puppet, fill it with thermite, and just have it grab on to an opponent and combust. Even an immortal wouldn't survive that.
>>46575048>>46575128I'll back up this guy. Not expecting to learn a jutsu, but maybe Shikamaru has some insight for us....not against looking for Ai, though.
You head home, and find your bro in the middle of cooking burgers! It seems he was anticipating you coming home tonight, somehow. He grins. "Hey, little brother. I went and got a bunch of stuff on sale at the supermarket, yeah? I haven't had burgers in such a long time, and thinking about it made me hungry. I hope you didn't eat before you came home." You smile, and shake your head. "Nope, I'm starving. It smells great!" He grins as well, and sets down a plate. "Perfect. I've noticed that you've had this week off, it seems. You know, if you want your brother to train you some time I could probably find some space. I may have to wake you up especially early, though!">A. That sounds great. Do you think you could teach me more Taijutsu?>B. That sounds great. Do you think you could teach me more Water Jutsu?>C. Sounds great, I'm interested in what you'll come up with to teach me.>D. Write-in
>>46575048>>A. Go to the barbecue restaurant

>>46575624>>C. Sounds great, I'm interested in what you'll come up with to teach me.
>>46575624>>A. That sounds great. Do you think you could teach me more Taijutsu?
>>46575624>B. That sounds great. Do you think you could teach me more Water Jutsu?>D. If not I'll take any wisdom my brother wants to give.
>D Do you have any special technique that not a lot of people know?
>>46575624>>B. That sounds great. Do you think you could teach me more Water Jutsu?Been a while. Am I right in thinking our bro's a sensory type?
>>46575624>C. Sounds great, I'm interested in what you'll come up with to teach me
>>46575736"That sounds great. Do you think you may be able to teach me more water jutsu? I've made great use of the ones that I know so far. I think I'm really beginning to improve at Ninjutsu." He nods. "I agree. I'll show you some of my better moves, when we meet!"He lays some burgers on the table, and you start to assemble yours as you like it. The condiments available are a couple pieces of fried bacon, lettuce, tomato, hot sauce, pickles, mustard, a few types of cheeses and almost everything else you could think of. It's quite a treat, and the two of you are enjoying the food so much you hardly talk for a few minutes. At the end, you both burp, and laugh loudly. "I'm also interested in anything special that you might want to show me. You must have some sort of secret move, right?"He looks over at you, a glint in his eyes. "Secret move...Hmmm, I guess I do have something like that. Fine, I'll show it to you soon."After dinner, you relax at your house for the night, staying up a bit later than you usually would reading comics or watching movies. You also grab a fudgesicle from the freezer.After a long sleep, it's Thursday. Today you plan to study. After a short while, you head to the Academy and find it empty as expected this early in the morning.>A. Learn about Water element Ninjutsu. >B. Learn about Non-elemental Ninjusu.>C.

>>46576006>>E. Learn about GenjutsuWe're good at it, but hampered by the fact we know virtually nowt. Ought to fix that.
>>46576006>E. Learn about Genjutsu
There are several options in terms of training Genjutsu for your current skill level. You'll have to learn a couple of the more basic techniques before moving onto more powerful ones, however. No matter how good your talent, you'll need a foundation of fundamentals to work with. You have a strong understanding of how to manipulate the senses of hearing and sight, and to some extent you can halt the body. For now, you decide to focus on Genjutsu that affect the body as the next part of your training.>A. Pain Destruction Jutsu. A ranged, direct mental attack that's designed to activate pain receptors in the target's brain. The strength of the Genjutsu is dependent on the user's skill, as pain normally releases one from a Genjutsu. It causes no damage, but if the target is already suffering from another soruce of pain, or begins to suffer from another source of pain, the illusion will vanish. Therefore this technique has no effect on wounded targets.>B. Body Numbing Strike Jutsu. A blend of Taijutsu and Genjutsu, if you can strike the target with your palm or fist after using it, this will send an illusory wave of relaxation, and physical comfort throughout their body. This could momentarily disarm an opponent, relax a wounded ally, or keep your own mind off of pain.>C. Paralysis jutsu. A Genjutsu that allows you to manipulate the opponent's nervous system and freeze them in place. You can only target multiple opponent at a time with it and you're capable of moving while it is in use. The larger the opponent's chakra pool, the more difficult it is to maintain the jutsu.

>>46576534>A. Pain Destruction Jutsu.It's like Fake Out from Pokemon.Anyway, I don't care which one we learn because we need to learn them all. Seriously, I'm already seeing ways to combine these three.Also, don't we also have to learn false scent jutsu or something?
We need to improve our jutsu so we can cast our bell genjutsu on them with a whistle
>>46577002That's dirty as shit if it could actually work
>>46577063Mini said we could eventually get it to work like that, with enough time and work
Right now Paralysis and Pain Destruction are tied at 4 votes each. Doing a tiebreaker for five minutes.>A. Pain Destruction>B. Paralysis
>>46577188>>A. Pain DestructionI feel like paralysis is redundant with bells
>>46577188>>A. Pain Destruction
>>46577221Well a greater foundation of Paralysis jutsu would help us improve the bells. Additionally, the bells have a decent setup time which is problematic.
The Paralysis Jutsu seems like the natural advancement, when you consider your prior techniques. Having something like this that you can whip out on command could be extremely useful, especially in a situation where you have an ally on your side. It seems to come with quite a few stipulations, but being able to completely disable someone's movements is quite a powerful jutsu. You start by studying deeper into the methods of controlling the nervous system through chakra. With using the bells, it's more a side-effect of the particular delivery method, getting to the brain straight through the ears. Here, you'll simply be hitting the skull with a controlled pulse. From there, you maintain it through feeding this pulse.The stronger your opponent, the more chakra you'll need to contain them. Of course, physical strength has little to do with this. If they don't have the chakra to resist you, they won't be able to at all. The moral implications of a technique like this really hit you. Anyone who isn't a shinobi is more or less completely helpless, now. This type of jutsu seems to be more complicated than the others. Learning to directly affect the nervous system is a large part of Genjutsu as a whole. It's through these techniques that you bring a touch of reality to the illusions. You spend up until about noon reading, until you go and get some lunch at Ichiraku's. It takes a little while to get your food, but after a filling meal you keep up your session. You've grown quite accustomed to being able to focus on a particular subject on your own for an entire day.
Guys, if we get in good graces with the Mouse Mafia, we may just become the Big Cheese!
>>46578311Well into the afternoon, you're about ready to head home and rest. You've learned all you feel you can on the theory of the Jutsu, now tomorrow you'll have to apply it with your partner. Whoever that happens to be. Since you'll be training hard, you go home and get some dinner and sleep.The next day, you lightly exercise after going through your morning ritual. You're just about to head out the door. There are a couple people who said they'd train with you.>A. Go to Kichiro's>B. Go to Mari and see if she's available>C. Go to Masaki and Chiaki>D. Wake up your bro>E. Go to the training field yourself
>>46578331>A. Go to Kichiro'sMari is open in the evenings. Kichibro in the morning her in the evening
>>46578331>>D. Wake up your broWater jutsu
>>46578331>>A. Go to Kichiro'sLet's also say we have a couple new jutsu;s we wanna use on him first.
>>46578331Is this the day Mari has her mission?
>>46578416Nope that was yesterday, but she works monirngs
>>46578331Hey, how stealthy are the Tigers' jutsus? Like, Tigers should be all about illusions given their camouflage and hunting prowess, and the intimidation factor of their roar and markings.
>>46578578He's explained exactly what the Summons do.
>>46578605Well, I wasn't there for the explanation. Could you link it for me, or just chill?
>>46578331Didn't bro say he'd have to wake *us* up? Is he sleeping in? Or do we wait for him to come to us?I don't know.>C. Masaki and ChiakiNot opposed to A or D, though.
>>46578673I'd have to dig it up again, but basically Tigers are taijutsu and ninjutsu. Owls are genjutsu and ninjutsu and rats are everything.
>>46578698Why would Tigers have ninjutsu as opposed to genjutsu?
>>46578698Rats are the best
>>46578673in this threadhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/45925048/ctrl f your way, you shall find it>>46578689he didn't say what day he'd train you
>>46578578yeah, after the explanation from last time, I really wanna see Tiger since it would boost our fighting and ninjutsu. Surely there must be some Genjutsu or we just train it in our off time.Rat is my second choice that I would really like if not Tiger.
>>46578724Because tigers are gigantic, angry wads of muscle and fangs?
>>46578724Cuz they are strong and like to attack things with magic
>>46578736Ah fuck. I forgot to check for an update. Fucking embarrassing.
>>46578734Thank you, but why do Tigers specialize in ninjutsu instead of genjutsu?
>>46578748which are also surprisingly good ambush predators.
>>46578748Taijutsu.>>46578754Tigers are not magic, they're stealthy.
>>46578764Could be for differentiation. Could also be that they would be more adept at hiding themselves as opposed to doing genjutsu on others for ambush purposes
>>46578812The Owls already have ninjutsu. There would be just as much ninjutsu to go around than the proposed Tiger genjutsu as is.
>>46578764If anything they specialize in Taijutsu and ninjutsu is just complimentary to that.
>>46578879I know for a fact that Tigers possess a Dojutsu.
>>46578879Why would the ability to shoot fireballs instead of lull the prey into a false sense of security help out their taijutsu abilities more?
The vote to go to Kichiro's house is the winner. I'm going to pause it here tonight and continue tomorrow, as I've got the day off. I'll be starting earlier, around 4-5 eastern US time. >>46578919Ask Kichiro, Hanto, or Sarasu
>>46578919Because he said so, sorry you don't like it.
>>46578955Today's hunters have plenty of firepower, that doesn't mean their method is brute force, it is still stealth. For tigers who don't have any firepower, they would naturally rely on stealth quite heavily to place themselves in a position to use their brute force.
>>46578955>Kichiro, Hanto, or SarasuCan we get a cast pastebin detailing who all these japs are sometime in the future?
>>46579010yeah well I have all these summons planned in advance, neat interpretation though, not bad ideas but I already have ideas m8
>>46579078If you payed attention you wouldn't need a cheat sheet, dumbass
>>46579078>a cast pastebinno, read the archives. Two of those characters are majoryou should know them and if you don't you obviously haven't read this quest.
Archived incidentally http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Boruto
>>46579190Piss off with that shit
>>46579278Who pissed in your frosted flakes?
>>46579122I had to reach to remember who Sarasu was. Pretty much everyone who isn't a waifu or canon or on our team is one big blur of shinobi.
>>46579339that's fair, considering how many damn characters there areI overdid it slightly but since this is a long quest we'll always have something to do at least.
Who is the true waifu? And why is it Mari
>>46579396It got especially bad right around when we were fighting that pink-haired chick from the Cloud, and I could not remember reading a part that included her.
>>46579446There was no part that included her, she was injured during her team's fight with the cloudThen she lost her tournament fight.I sort of intentionally had her stay in the background because of who she was.
>>46579498Then why did we recognize her anyway despite not even catching a glimpse of this pink-haired cloud lady? Could this be called the reverse of Chekhov's gun?
>>46579498>her team's fight with the cloudBut I thought you said she was from the Cloud?
Remember that stupid arc after the Chuunin Exams that was thrown into deter the waifu posting, and had us fight a barely canon character with an artificial relationship with our sensei's father that was not given any time at all, and a stupid pastebin where our teacher, who was from a family that home-schooled their young, was actually that guy's friend in school? And from all that, we got a macguffin that drives our destiny. Why are we letting the stupidest goddamn arc pave the way to our future?
>>46579624Nice b8 m8 I r8 it 8/8, it was after all pretty gr8
>>46579624Oh yeah, and I don't know why, but Mini would heavily insist on saying that Koji was Jounin level, despite it being relayed to us that he never passed his Jounin exams, and never got access to the skillset that Jounins possess. That's not a Jounin-tier enemy, that's the upper level of a Chuunin at best. Maybe if Mini said that he stole some scrolls after scratching up his headband, but artificially elevating our opponents' status and capabilities with a false title is just annoying.
>>46579770>>46579624Here's your badge
>>46579624>>46579770There's a ton of exposition that answers a lot of these questions, but do you really want it? I figure most people would hate gigantic exposition dumps and this series is absolutely bonkers with them sadly, I really try to cut it down when I can.If I didn't do it in the form of pastebins it'd take up time in the quest, and the main story is already moving at such a crawl because of how much side content there is to explore in terms of the missions being the main way of interacting with foreign characters then I have social time for interacting with the myriad characters in the leaf.Questions will get answered anon, don't worry. I can explain more side content in pastebin. Hopefully that'll clear more stuff up too eventually.
>>46580090You alive? or just writing more side content pastebins? anyway, first one of these I've caught live, been enjoying the quest even if I remember next to nothing about Naruto.
>>46579339You this guy? >>46579078Yeah. Kichiro is that guy who's on our team. Remember?
bumping with second best girl Mari a best
>>46580090bumping with a question, after our last mission (Where we took a fireball to the everything and our main concern was still the mission, Plus the whole evil twin thing, AND the interrogation training) How much extra tinfoil did salad-chan have to go out and purchase for her hat?
>>46584814It's not even Part 2 yet
Why not visiting someone else instead of kichiro,mari,shikadai cycle like mitsuki,boruto or other teams. Seriously, i want to see boruto's chara development
>>46586294I voted for it, but anons wanted Mari today.
>>46586601>>46586294Mari has the most waifu fags.I wanted to visit boruto,himewari ai.saradaEventhough i like mari most.
>>46586836I think everyone can agree that girls with Hyuga genes a best
>>46586294I've been pushing to hang out with Ai for several threads now, but I missed most of this one.
>>46587787Ai is difficult to hang out since do not know her house unless you ask our sensei.Did we ever talk to our sensei about our weakness and how to deal with it?
>>46588375>Ai is difficult to hang out since do not know her house unless you ask our sensei.Yeah, that's just another obstacle in the way to start befriending the people on our team.First we have to sneak a vote past the waifufags to ask where she lives.Then we need to sneak additional votes past them to actually visit her.
I wanna go hang out with Sarada just to see Sakura
>>46591552Saradas mom has got it going on?
>>46591552Why?>>46591632Yes, still a bitch though.
>>46591661She might have been a shit character, but now she's a milf.Also if we're nice enough to her she might end up teaching us medical jutsu herself
>>46578331>>C. Go to Masaki and ChiakiWho are these people?
>>46591896Remember that team we dropped before running into the ice castle? The one where we had to coordinate Ai and Kichiro to beat them? The ones that combo'd their jutsu a lot? The quiet guy and bitchy wind girl. They promised to train with us.
>>46582149I went to sleep not long after, glad to hear you've enjoyed what's come so farI do have an extra pastebin written already, I'll release that soon.>>46584937It was only a Phoenix Flower Jutsu, it was more the concussive force of the fireball hitting your head that knocked you out. At this point, she honestly almost expected you to be an interrogator. As if you winning the tourney didn't already prove that you're much more skilled a shinobi than she had originally assessed.>>46592172Masaki looks more like Red from pokemon
>>46579539I must have forgotten to answer these. Your character Takeshi was present for her tournament fight, but you the players were not as you chose to skip it. I'll do the pastebin for that fight eventually, or sooner if people really want it. I honestly time these things either by whatever happens to coincide with the story at the time or demand of things that we missed.>>46579558She is, my bad. Meant to say fighting the snow.
Once you've gotten across town, you find Kichiro's house in the center of many other tall buildings. This side of town has always had a bad history, but you're reminded of the large group of friends that Kichiro seemed to have present at all times. You knock on the door, and moments later you're greeted by the tiny face of his sister peeking through the door."Kichiro said he'd train with me, is he here?"She nods slowly, and runs off. Seconds later, Kichiro jumps through the door wearing gray sweatpants and a gray sweatshirt. "Let's go!" he yells, taking off in a jog and forcing you to turn heel and follow him. "H-hey! Are we going to the training field?" Kichiro shakes his head. "Nope! Too many schmucks, we're going to the forest to train. Speaking of which, we should try to think if there are any jutsu that we could teach each other. Is there anything that you wanted to learn from me? I have fire jutsu and taijutsu, as you know." >A. Could you teach me the basics of Fire Nature Jutsu?>B. Could you train me in Taijutsu?>C. Could you teach me to use the first of the eight gates? >D. Ask to learn something else from him, or do other training
>>46593093>B. Could you train me in Taijutsu?
>>46593093>>B. Could you train me in Taijutsu?But could I try a new jutsu on you?
>>46593093>>B. Could you train me in Taijutsu?
>>46593093>B. Could you train me in Taijutsu?Although I think our styles are quite different.
>>46593093>A. Could you teach me the basics of Fire Nature Jutsu?Work on a second nature is awesome. On his end, he can learn the False Sound genjutsu, which we've shown time and time again is amazing for coordination.
>>46593093>>A. Could you teach me the basics of Fire Nature Jutsu?
"Do you think you could train me in Taijutsu?"He grins, and nods. "I was hoping you'd say that, actually. Taijutsu is more or less my specialty. Hanto's taught me quite a few interesting moves. We could either focus on a specific area of your physical abilities, your skill, or learning a new Jutsu. Obviously I'd be the best for strength training, but by no means have I been slacking in any other area. Take your pick, I'll ask you about what you can teach me later on. I'm sure you've got something useful in that bag of tricks, eh?" You nod, and chuckle. "No doubt."Well, what do you want to train?>A. Strength (++)>B. Speed (+)>C. Stamina (+)>D. Taijutsu (+)>E. Ask what Taijutsu techniques he could teach you.
>>46593478>B. Speed (+)gotta go fast

>>46593478>>A. Strength (++)

>>46593478>>C. Stamina (+)maybe we can get that 2.5 to a 3!
>>46593478>E. Ask what Taijutsu techniques he could teach you.

>>46593478>>A. Strength (++)Two +'s is too good to pass up
>>46593478>A. Strength (++)Just hit it harder.
Considering that it's your friend's specialty, you ask him to help improve your physical strength. Happily he agrees, and soon enough the two of you have jogged deep into the forests outside the village. The trees here are a dozen feet or more thick, and impossibly tall. Stepping out in these forests always makes you feel tiny.Kichiro skids to a stop, and turns around. "Okay, to start, we're going to do what Hanto called a super squat."You blink. "Yeah? How's it different?"He holds up a finger. "You'll see, let me loosen up for a second. You should too."The both of you go through a series of stretches, to be sure that you don't injure yourselves during training. Kichiro steps near the base of one of the gigantic trees. "The reason we came out here is for this puppy." he slaps his palm against it. "Just try to do as I do. Don't really worry about matching me right away. I've..done this quite a bit, heheheh." Kichiro kneels down, placing his hand against the forest floor for balance for a few seconds. He looks straight up, and takes a deep breath, and begins to bounce on his heels while kneeling. After a few seconds of this, he yells. "One!" There's an explosion of dust and twigs in front of you as he rockets into the sky, propelled by nothing but his physical strength. He must clear at least two stories before reaching the apex, and reaching with his hands to cling tree with chakra.Slowly, he slides back down. "Alright, now you try! Just give it everything you got." You kneel down, and bounce on your heels as you try to enter a mental rhythm. On the upswing, you fully extend your legs as powerfully as you can. You're shot up into the air, only about ten feet, but enough to shock you.In fact, you almost lose control. Your body flips backwards, but as your foot hits the tree you cling to it for dear life.
>>46594202Sliding back down, Kichiro takes his turn. The two of you repeat this process, carefully watching if you'd need to catch one another. A Switching to various other exercises, Kichiro seems to be targeting the parts of your body which exert the most force. This was probably essentially the same training he received from Hanto. It's noon. You're physically exhausted, a sweaty mess. You'll be sure all over tomorrow for sure, but you will benefit greatly from it. Not only that, but now you know some advanced exercises to keep up on it. "Thanks for that" you say between breaths. "This was one of my more prominent weaknesses, heh." Kichiro nods. "No problem. Hey, you still got the energy to return the favor, right? I was wondering if you could teach me how to break out of Genjutsu.">A. Sure. I even have a new jutsu that you can try to break out of. (Teach him Kai and practice Paralysis)>B. Sure. I can also teach you the Shadow Shuriken jutsu. >C. Sure. I can also help improve your speed. (Kichiro learns Kai, and you both get + Speed.)>D. Write-in
>>46594227>>A. Sure. I even have a new jutsu that you can try to break out of. (Teach him Kai and practice Paralysis)
>>46594227>>C. Sure. I can also help improve your speed. (Kichiro learns Kai, and you both get + Speed.)
>>46594227>>A. Sure. I even have a new jutsu that you can try to break out of. (Teach him Kai and practice Paralysis)BAM we get to practice and teach
>>46594227>A. Sure. I even have a new jutsu that you can try to break out of. (Teach him Kai and practice Paralysis)
You describe the usage of the Kai technique to Kichiro, and rest as he starts to practice it on his own. Of course, for now he's simply manipulating his own chakra network. After about twenty minutes you stand up, and tell him that you're going to use your Paralysis Jutsu to try and restrain him.Kichiro raises an eyebrow. "You mean the bells?" You shake your head. "No, this is a new technique that I've been meaning to practice. It's just called the Paralysis Techinique. I need to see how it feels, and you need to practice breaking Genjutsu. Perfect." He grins. "Then try it out!"You go through a few handsigns, and hold the final one while looking at Kichiro with a glare. You launch the chakra, and it connects cleanly. There's an invisible connection between you and Kichiro, your chakra directly feeding into his brain and nervous system. It spreads throughout his body and freezes him in his current position, and you can see your friend grit his teeth as he tries to resist you physically at first. There's pretty much no effect, and though your chakra is being slowly drained he's kept in place. That is, until he begins to resist your Genjutsu by manipulating his own chakra network. Once he pushes against you, it becomes a battle of force as opposed to one of control. You have to increase the amount of chakra you're feeding into the technique to keep him from breaking it, and this amount is increasing exponentially. It's clear that Kichiro's larger chakra pool will let him break out of the technique, but not before sapping you of your strength.It seems that for people who are roughly your level or higher, this jutsu will only have a momentary effect before becoming to inefficient to maintain. But when it comes to targets weaker than you, you can hold them nearly indefinitely. As long as you have chakra left.
>>46594676You and your friend go through the motions of casting the jutsu, and him breaking it as his bindings are loosened. It's good practice for him to break a jutsu, as it weakens over time. A couple hours of this, and it's now later in the afternoon. The two of you jog back to town to cool down, and you go your separate ways at the village gate. You feel as if you have essentially mastered the Paralysis Jutsu.(++ to strength, raising it to 2.5. Mastered Paralysis Jutsu.)You're physically and mentally drained. You'll have to stop training today if you want to be able to move tomorrow. You've got time to go visit someone or get something to eat, though.>A. Go get some Ramen>B. Go get some BBQ>C. Go get some Sushi>D. Go ask Naruto where Ai lives>E. Visit someone you know.>F. Write-in

>>46594905We know where she lives. We've been there before. It was on of the best scenes in this whole quest.
>>46594700>C. Go get some SushiPile on the Wasabi.
Seeing as she's nearly vanished off the face of the earth, you think that it's a good idea to go and ask Naruto where Ai lives. It was good being able to train with Kichiro, but you imagine that you and Ai will have much more in common when it comes to Jutsu. It doesn't take long at all to reach the Hokage's Office, and the assistant at the front desk has you wait for a short while. Two men from the Grass Country exit Naruto's office, ambassadors from your guess. You step in, knocking on the door frame. "Lord Hokage?" He's looking down at some papers, sorting through. He hands them off to a shadow clone who places them categorically in a file cabinet. "Hey, Takeshi. Have you been enjoying some time off?"You chuckle. "Been busy as ever, actually. It has been nice hanging out with friends though."He grins, although he's still looking at his work. "Good, good. Do you have some sort of question for me, if you've come here?"You nod. "That's right. I was wondering if you could tell me where my team-mate Ai lives. I haven't seen her in a long time and I want to check up on her."The standing shadow clone creates another in a puff of smoke, and that clone walks over to a different filing cabinet. The Naruto at the desk continues to speak. "Sure, just one moment. Her home is somewhat hidden. It's the only home that's located in our central park."You blink. "Her home is in the park?? But I pass through there all the time, and I've never seen a house."He smiles. "The family that owned it were very secretive. The trees are planted in a way that conceals it at all hours of the day, but if you know the path it's easy to reach." The clone hands you a file describing how to reach the house. "Thank you, Lord Hokage."He nods. "No problem. If you'll excuse me, I have to get back to work." You make your exit, with the knowledge of where Ai lives. It's early in the evening.
>>46595241>A. Go home, and get some sleep. You can visit people tomorrow.>B. Go see if Ai is home>C. Go get some Ramen>D. Go get some Sushi>E. Go get some BBQ

She's probably at home at this hour, and from what you remember she has no family to speak of. You really doubt that she'd have a problem with a team mate just wanting to visit, right? You're making your way through the park, using the limited light of the street lamps to guide you as you take a look at the file. You have to cut through a couple winding paths in the park forest, and in the distance the sun is setting. Soon enough, you come to the doors of an ancient, wooden home. It's clearly been here for many years, it's wooden grain rough and damaged from moisture. There doesn't seem to be any lights on inside. If you had to guess, you'd say that this building was completely abandoned. >A. Knock>B. Peek through one of the windows>C. Open the door, and go in>D. Write-in
>>46595561>A. Knock in this rhythm and intensity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvCi7kLxaFk
>>46595561>A. KnockLike a normal person
Resisting the opportunity to be nosy, you take a few steps up the creaky stairs and knock on the wooden door. It's fairly loud in the relative silence of the park forest. For a few seconds nothing happens, and you knock again. Just when you were considering turning away, the door opens, and sure enough your team mate is standing there. She's wearing a loose white T-shirt, and what seem to be loose fitting sport shorts. It looks like what a guy would wear if he planned on being lazy all day. She rubs her eye. It's possible she was napping, or maybe she's just confused that you're here at all. "Takeshi? How did you..get here?"You take a look at the file in your hands. "I asked Naruto where you lived, I wanted to come see you." "Why?" she asks, rather flatly.>A. I wanted to know if you wanted to train, the day after tomorrow.>B.

>>46595810Naaaaaaah maaaaaanWere just.....checking up on our teammates dude. No big deal.
>>46595810No. We're socializing.
>>46595810Dude, she's probably our cousin.
"Well, no one's seen you in a while so I just wanted to see how you were doing. I thought we could go get some dinner and catch up a little. I mean, you've been busy with missions and stuff lately right? Probably learned a lot of jutsu?"She stares at you quietly for a few seconds, probably processing what you've said. It's only after she responds that you realize what she was staring at. "I don't think either of us are in any condition to be eating out, right now." You look down at yourself. Your clothes are dirty, and your pits are soaked with sweat. Your hair is also a tangled mess from all of the wind of jumping. You hadn't realized the condition you were in, bouncing around from place to place as you usually do has kept you distracted from physical exhaustion. Looking up at Ai, you see that her hair is messy and sticking up in several places. She rubs here eye again, and you get the impression she's been spending her day off in a deep slumber. "Maybe you have a point, heh." you say.>A. Well, how about tomorrow?>B. Can I come in, then?>C. Well, if you want to get cleaned up we can get something to eat at my house>D.

What day is it incidentally?
>>46596276Currently Friday Night
>>46596382We still have time to watch SmackDown?
You scratch your cheek, trying to think of something to do. "Well, if you wanted to get cleaned up I could bring to my house. We'd have something to eat there. I don't think my brother is home either, so we won't have to wrestle control of the TV from him. How does that sound?" She's simply staring at you, a little bit of a concerned look on her face. "I don't really feel like it.." You nod. "Well, maybe we can do something tomorrow then."She takes a step forward, grabbing the door. She looks down and slowly nods. "Okay. Sure. I'll be home, just stop by any time." You give her your goodbyes and head on home. You're not very surprised by her behavior, but at least you've finally gotten her to agree to do something! It took much more time than you would have originally thought, but maybe you're starting to pierce that thick barrier around her.As expected, your brother isn't home. You make yourself a small meal and pass out, waking up early the next morning. Today you've got nothing planned but free time, and tomorrow is your last day of training before returning to your missions. Who do you want to visit?>A. Go see if your Bro wants to train>B.

Going into your brother's room, you shake him gently at first to try and wake him up. "Hey bro"You shake a little harder, and his head waggles back and forth. Despite this he maintains a deep sleep. "Wake up!"You lift his unconscious body out of the bed, groaning a little. He's always been abnormally difficult to rouse. You roll him off with a shove, and he hits the ground and bounces back up, standing on two feet. "Eh!?"He looks around, before spotting you. "There you are! I was just thinking about coming and waking you up. You ready to train?""You were asleep though, Hideki"He grabs his jacket, and slips it on. He assumes that your answer is yes. "Well, I must have been dreaming about it then. Either way, let's go. We can talk about what you want to learn on the way to the training field.>A. What Water Jutsu can you teach me?>B.

>>46596779>C. What was the secret technique you wanted to show me?Hiden pls.
>>46596779>C. What was the secret technique you wanted to show me?
>>46596779Also don't we have a couple more jutsu we need to practice?
I choose>C. What was the secret technique you wanted to show me?
>>46596779>>C. What was the secret technique you wanted to show me?Hideki pls, he really needs to reach Jounin before us.
"Well, what was that secret technique that you wanted to show me?" You can't see it as he's jogging in front of you, but your brother can't help but grin in a slightly cocky fashion. "I'll tell you about it on the way there. I don't think I'll really be able to teach it to you in one day, but I can show you what it's about. I've given you the Underdog seal, that comes from our dad's side of the family. But, before she died, our mother also left us with a gift. The scrolls of her family's own jutsu, a Taijutsu!" You've ran up beside him now, keeping pace easily thanks to your fascination. It's rare that your brother talks about your parents. It's not that he's with-holding information, but you can tell it pains him to talk about them. You suppose you were spared some of that pain, being born younger. He looks straight on ahead, a nostalgic smile starting to form. "She and her clan actually came here from the Mist, but she married into our father's clan. So, for all I know, me and you might have cousins across the bend who know this same jutsu!" Interesting. You knew that your father's roots extended back to the very origins of the Leaf Village, but your mother's side comes from the Mist. It doesn't take very long to reach the training fields. There's no one here currently, and the nearby pond is full of life as a frogs croak and dragonflies buzz. It's a peaceful scene. Your brother stops, and steps a few feet away from you. "Okay, Takeshi..I'm going to show you the first part of this technique. I need you to throw a kunai at me."
>>46597186You imagine that he's simply going to dodge it, or maybe use his technique. You draw your weapon and make sure he's prepared before slinging it forward. To your surprise, Hideki calmly holds up his palm in place of dodging or using a jutsu. The metal clatters off of his hand, ringing in a clear tone as if it had clashed with similarly made steel.Your eyes go wide. "What was that?" He grins. "The fruits of labor. The skin on my hands, arms and legs. It's all as hard as iron, nothing less! It's only been in the last couple of years that I've been able to intensify my training to this level. At first, it's hard, it's so hard, little brother.." He slowly brings up his hands, keeping the palms flat. He brings them up in front of him as if he was going to box, and takes a low stance with his legs. He slowly steps over to the wooden dummy, and begins to make slow, well practiced strikes on it. You've always known that your brothers hands had numerous scars, but you imagined it was simply from combat rather than training. Slowly, he picks up the pace, battering the wooden dummy freely. Then with a single strike, he blasts his palm forward and the dummy splits in half vertically. The force of the impact sends wood flying in every direction, and you protect your face as well as you can.He turns around, grinning. "I can show you this fighting style, but the iron hard skin won't come for a long time. You'll have to work hard for this kind of power, though. It's not like any other technique in the Leaf, it's the Taijutsu of the Mist!" He continues to preform a several techniques, fighting against an imaginary opponent to display the powerful defensive and offensive capabilities present. You notice that it seems to be as smooth as water.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCoH4FVgi7M>A. I'm willing to start learning>B. I don't think I'm ready to undertake this just yet>C. Write-in

>>46597211>>A. I'm willing to start learning
>>46597211>A. I'm willing to start learningGet rekt, Lee, our training is even harder. Maybe.
>>46597211>A. I'm willing to start learning
>>46597211>>A. I'm willing to start learningIt's like Iron Body kung fu, fucking neat
>>46597211>C. Laaaaaame, no wonder our mother died
>>46592810When are we getting a pastebin of Sarada fighting Boruto? Also, we had way more rivalry points with her than we did with Boruto, she decked our teammates and insisted that we were inferior all the time. Final fight of the tournament should have been with her.
>>46597211>A. I'm willing to start learningJust remember that we've got another training session planned later today.
>>46597595No the only prior engagement we have today is eating with AI
>>46597631No we don't
"I'm willing to start learning." you say, bowing in respect. Your brother laughs. "Get up, Takeshi! You don't have to bow to me, you know. You'll be too tired to worry about such trivial formalities, if you do it right!" You stand up, smiling. "Right!" He asks you to spar with him for a few moments, and in the time it takes you to throw a single punch he tells you to stop. You blink. "Huh? Did I do something wrong?" Your brother steps forward. "Normally, no. You ran at me with full speed and threw your best punch. For now, I'm going to teach you several different types of punches. Your feet are plenty fast, but your physical attacks are wide and obvious to the trained eye. Most of all, you'll need speed in your hands. The power will come from rapid strikes, and proper timing. A counter blow is infinitely more deadly than one that is readily resisted, you see?" You nod. It's a lot of information all at once, and it's clear your brother is a master of his craft.He shoots his fist out, and it's practically a blur with how fast it moves. "You need to learn how to jab, a light strike. This is the best move for breaking down physical defenses slowly. Or quickly, if you're strong. The key is to keep your hand relaxed."At once, you begin practicing. With his guidance, it only takes you an hour or so to get a consistent jab going with your dominant hand. Being able to throw a rapid, lighter punch like this will give you an advantage over anything you're faster than in close combat. Of course, it takes several more hours before you're capable of jabbing with your left hand.
>>46597676Today's training is completed, and your arms are tired as all hell. Your brother slaps you on the back, and laughs. "Next time I'll teach you some Water Jutsu. Keep up on improving the speed of your punches, though! If you can do that, you'll be well on your way. Punch the wooden dummies to improve the toughness of your fists." Taking his advice, you part ways. Though you're exhausted, you think to pop a soldier pill. In an instant you're bursting full of energy again, feeling no fatigue. It's probably not good for your health to abuse these though. In any case, you've got the energy to train some more. Who do you want to go see?>A. Visit Mari>B. Visit Ai>C. Visit Masaki>D. Visit Chiaki>E. Try to find someone else
>>46597704You gained Taijutsu + Also, the ability to Jab, which is a weaker but much faster punch.
>>46597704>A. Visit MariSaid we'd train with her
>>46597704>>A. Visit MariSword training please
>>46597704>A. Visit MariWe said we would.
>>46597704>>A. Visit Mari
>>46597704>B. Visit Ai
>>46597704>A. Visit Mari
>>46597704>E. Kill Naruto
>>46597805Shhh not so loud brother anon will hear you
>>46597805Fuck you anon. He's way out of our league.
>>46597836nah, we can take him
>>46597704>>B. Visit Ai
Now that it's a little later in the afternoon, you figure it's a good time to go and train with Mari like you said you would. She should be getting off of work, right about now. You make your way to the shop and enter, seeing some customers leave. Tenten greets you. "Hey there, Takeshi. Here to shop, or come to steal my daughter?" You scratch your cheek. "Uh, we're just gonna be training, ma'am." You get the impression that she's teasing you. "Of course." she says with a smile. "I'll go get her real quick." Tenten steps to the back of the shop, and yells for Mari to get her ass out here because she has company. The Hyuuga girl steps through the front, along with her mom. "You don't have to yell like that, you scared the hell out of me! I dropped my sword!"Her mom waves it off. "Bah, you dropped it on carpet, it's fine. Go out and train already!" Mari is back to her usual outfit, no kimono and black ninja gear. She has her Leaf Headband modified into a blue belt, and is carrying a Katana on her back. She also has a Tanto on her hip, same as you. "Ready, then?" she says with a smile.You both say goodbye to Tenten and head out to the training fields. Mari draws her Tanto. "Okay, so you've probably used this unarmed guys and done fine. But do you know how to fight against another sword? It's a whole different game." Drawing your blade, you look at it. It's been fairly useful, but with some real skill you might be able to make a lot out of it. She starts to walk forward. "I'm going to teach you how to parry with that thing. Don't expect it to work against something like Yasu's sword, though. But if you come across a normal weapon, like a Katana, it could save your life. Plus, end theirs." she says with a cocky grin.
>>46598056The two of you begin the hard work, as she draws her katana. It's difficult to divert the strong swings, and even then you can tell she's holding back immensely. You remember what she did in the prelims against her opponent, despite her legs shaking fiercely afterward. You wonder if she could do that now and still stand.Eventually, you get the hang of being able to defend with your weapon more capably. It's mostly a stabbing tool, so the swordplay aspect of it isn't complicated. However, using it defensively is smart. Once you get the Jet Sheath, you imagine it will have explosive offensive strength as well.You thank Mari for her training. You're fortunate to be friends with her family. She chuckles. "Jeez, you must be a little loopy or something. Why don't you head home and get some rest? That's what I'm doing. Stop by and we can do this again, okay?" You nod, and she runs off. You're tired and sweaty, and it's late in the afternoon. What do you want to do?>A. Go home, shower, and go see Ai>B. Try to continue training>C. Write-in
>>46598080>>A. Go home, shower, and go see Ai
>>46598080>A. Go home, shower, and go see Ai
>>46598080>A. Go home, shower, and go see AiI just realized that training for defensive swordplay will be a little redundant after we train Taijutsu more.
It's Saturday, isn't it? We were to meet with her Sunday.
>>46598239Yesterday we said tomorrow. That means.. Today.
>>46598226We should probably focus on one or the other.
You head on home and take a shower, cleaning up before you go and see Ai. Truth be told, you are slightly nervous. She's an intimidating girl, but you do feel confident that she'll enjoy having someone to talk to. Besides, who doesn't like food? You know that you're personally starving after a long day of hard work. It was actually supposed to be a social day, but you couldn't help but keep at it. Well, at least you're doing one social thing.Cleaned up, you head on over. The sun is just setting in the park, but this time you can decently remember the path to Ai's house. You step on up, and knock on the door. A matter of seconds later, it opens up. Ai is standing there in her usual gear, but her hair is now clean and finely brushed. Her nearly white skin glows a little bit with the orange light of the setting sun. She maintains a neutral face. "I'm ready. But where are we going?">A. We're going for Ramen>B. We're going for BBQ>C. We're going for Sushi>D. Well, where do you wanna go?>E. Write-in
>>46598266Well, yeah, if we wanna kill Naruto any time soon.
>>46598239>Literally cannot remember more than three updates back
>>46598226It'll take actual years to develop the iron-like skin effect.
>>46598283>>C. We're going for Sushi
>>46598283>B. We're going for BBQ
>>46598283>D. Well, where do you wanna go?>E. Write-in"I was thinking Ramen or Barbecue."
>>46598283>C. We're going for Sushi
>>46598283>D. Well, where do you wanna go?If she doesn't care>B. We're going for BBQ
>>46598283>D. Well, where do you wanna go?>Personally I'm partial to BBQ, but I'm open to suggestions
>>46598283>C. We're going for SushiShe seems like the type of girl who eats all her meat either rare or raw.
>>46598365She's a vampire yo
>>46598331>>46598333>>46598348>>46598351You think for a second. "Hmmm, well, where do you wanna go? Do you have any local favorites?" She looks up at you. "I don't care." She blinks with large doe-like eyes, and you get the impression she's completely honest. Typical. You think for another second or so, before deciding. "Well, how does barbecue sound then? That'd be a great dinner." She grins just slightly. "Sure." The two of you start to make your way, and you ask her how her missions have been going. "I've worked with many of the people that we fought against, in the Chunin exams. Since you've been busy leading squads, me and Kichiro have been assigned to separate Genin Squads as assistance. I've saved up quite a lot of money to fund my training. How has your life as a Chunin been?">A. It's been amazing, I love it>B. It's been harder than I've expected>C. It's been crazy. It's hard to say what can happen next>D. Write-in
>>46598680>>C. It's been crazy. It's hard to say what can happen next
>>46598680>C. We're going for Sushiwon
>>46598680>C. It's been crazy. It's hard to say what can happen next
>>46598680>C. It's been crazy. It's hard to say what can happen next>>46598716chill
>>46598746I'm not chilling if he's not going to count right.
>>46598716nope, the last vote was several minutes too late. If it's after fifteen minutes from the first vote it doesn't count.This has been the rule since the start.
>>46598680>C. It's been crazy. It's hard to say what can happen next>D. Honestly, I'm a little worried winning the exam might have been more trouble than it'd be worth. They expect me to pull a performance like that every single time. I haven't lost anyone yet, but...well, I haven't won every fight either. Sometimes, I feel like I'm in over my head.
>>46598780But there were 3 votes for C, and two votes for B
>>46597850I laughed hard at this.
>>46598815see>>46598331>>46598333>>46598348>>46598351Now stop harshing Mini's mellow
>>46598840That's 3 votes for D, so that should be tied with the votes for C.
>>46598865and she said she didn't care, which defaulted to B with 4 votes your mongoloid.
>>46598892And B got 2 votes compared to C's 3 votes.
"It's certainly been crazy. It's hard to say what can happen next. Sometimes, I feel like I'm in over my head. I win a lot of fights, but not all of them."Ai nods. "I understand. It's impossible to be completely perfect..But there's always the expectation, whether it comes from our personal standards or the people we know. I think this is why some of the others our age are emotionally troubled."You look over, with a grin. "That's awfully observant of you. You're more empathetic than you let on, Ai." She looks over, blinking. "You think?"---That's all for tonight folks, thread is almost gone. I'll answer questions while it's here. Expect me to run within the week, to complete the weekend and start your mission.
>>46598939That was shit, we didn't even get to ask if that lookalike we encountered was her brother or not.
>>46598912more people total wanted barbecue, including the D votes, if only by one votethe very last sushi vote was a couple seconds too late, but that would have tied it and made it a revotethe thread is dying woman, what do you want from me!? it's sushi or barbecue, if this was a more important decision I'd understand>>46598959You haven't even gotten to the place yet.
>>46598912Except the D votes voted for B if she had no preference. are you incapable of reading or logical thought?>>46598939Thanks for running Mini, I take it we're not done quite yet?>>46598959Dude chill.
>>46598977>>46598974If they want to vote B, then they should actually vote for B. The C people at least kept things simple to count.
>>46598939Thanks for running!
>>46599000>My vote lost so I'll bitch at the QM and tell him how he should runEither leave or get over it.
>>46598977yeah you still gotta sit down and eat, plus you may see someone you know at the place
>>46598939thanks for running again miniit;'s been fun
>>46598939When you have time can you make a Pastebin of all the characters with physical description and their known techniques.
>>46599076Dude, there are a lot of characters in this quest. If you don't remember who someone is/what they do ask me in the thread and I'll refresh your memory.Making a pastebin like that would take a whole day
>>46599120Are Guy and Kakashi still watching us?
>>46599165Yeah, they keep an eye on your mission records.
>>46599055>>46599003glad you enjoyed it
>>46599197>>46599234you're using the out of date sheet Mini
>>46599197And what are their thoughts thus far?
>>46599257Oh woops, my bad, I'll have the proper one next time. >>46599283You're one of the most promising ninja of this generation, all in all
>>46599378Thanks for running boss I posted the archive earlier
>>46599378Any entries added for our family Taijutsu yet?
>>46599440You learned the Jab.>>46599427thanks as always
>>46599467Would that fall under jutsu or perks?
>>46599467It's a Taijutsu
>>46599498woops, this >>46599524is for you clearly
>>46599540http://pastebin.com/g44gcuXhNew Bin, please keep up with it
Oh fuck, I forgot to post this pastebin.Quick, everyone look before the thread dieshttp://pastebin.com/WPkMdmxqmore background on your sensei Hanto
We are so spread thin its a bit overwhelming at the minuteLike is it practical for us to focus on using a sword aswell as hand to hand taijutsu which focuses on toughening your handsPlus we also have a ninja scalpel and hydro sword, people seem to have gotten too big a weapon boner because we cant use all these
>>46599635Chakra Scalpel is subtle, Hydro sword is not. Having a sword is better than iron palm, and having a back up is common sense. Besides when we use our sword we have a free hand. We're never going to be a master of certain style, like most of our classmates, so our best trump is to know everything so we can counter anything. Like Kakashi.
>>46599635We're never going to be a sword master, but it's always handy to know how to use one. Like >>46599635Says it's a primary form of defense, the Iron skin would be secondary.
>>46599635Using the Tanto doesn't use chakra while the Hydro Sword does. Granted it's a small amount but if we have to constantly switch to and from it it all eventually adds up. The tanto also let's us use any ranged jutsu that we know unlike the Hydro sword.
Is it possible that Ai is best girl?No, for it is Sarada.
>>46599897>Not Mari Nice b8 m8
>>46599897>>46599929One day Takeshi will have Ai, Sarada, Mari and Nyoko all wanting to "talk" to him at one time. That will be the day he knows the cardinal truth of Naruto's world. Men go to war to avoid crazy women.
>>46599897>>46599929>Not AiYou guys are trash, i dont even remember what Ai looks like and shes is better than both of your waifu.Really though, Cute picks of Ai and even Mari are lacking. This needs to change.
>>46600005Ai has big brown eyes, pale skin and dark hair. Mari looks like >>46572437But dressed differently.
>>46600005This is what Ai will look like after the part 1-part 2 timeskip, essentiallyRight now she's a much shorter, flatter version of this girl.
>>46600062I know there's a %.0000000001 chance, but it's a chance I', hanging on to.
>>46600074>>46600005We must have drawfaggotry done of all the girls.
>>46600074Cute who will have the biggest bust in part 2? besides cho cho
>>46600123I would, but I can't into drawing hoo-mans.
>>46600074All aboard the AI train
>>46600124Himawari or Mari Those Hyūga clan genes though
>>46600179Hanto's little sister would probably beat them
>>46600074Yes, perfect.>>46600124I could have sworn we've discussed this before at some point. We had a ranking system and every thing.
Wait, is Ai's name literal? IS SHE A ROBOT?
>>46600273Given she can grow flesh limbs, probably not.>>46600260That was for part 1 busts, not part 2 if memory serves.>>46600074Any chance of multiple girls wanting Takeshi in the same way multiple girls once wanted Sasuke?
>>46600332Dude come on were not that cool. But that brings up a good question, who is the teenage heartthrob of this generation.
>>46600074But this girl is already flat, how much flat can you get?
>>46600588I mean she is 12, shes probably just flat chested. This may be anime world but not everyone will grow melons.
