Shinobi Quest #9This quest takes place within the lands of the Five Great Shinobi Nations (aka Narutoverse) starting roughly around the beginning of the original series. The world of this quest remains similar to the original, with slight but notable differences in certain areas, based upon the passage of time from a single slightly altered event. (It’s a goddamn Naruto Quest, you bastards. Have fun, participate, and write in when you feel inclined. Most of the outcomes of this quest will be determined by you, the players. Critiques and questions are always welcome, as my knowledge of the weeby shit is not all encompassing.)http://pastebin.com/WiPdCqLHPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Shinobi%20QuestLast thread, Tsuki Norihime kept her word, and began to help others begin the healing process, as well as making some bold proclamations. “Well, I’m setting a goal for you right now, then Hinata.” you say standing up.“W-what’s that?” she inquires.“You’re going to beat Neji Hyuuga.” you say, flashing her a winning smile……
The young girl stares back at you, mouth agape. “Beat Neji….?” she finally mumbles, regaining her composure.“This is what I’m talking about Hinata! I don’t think you’re truly going to believe in yourself until take wipe that smug grin off of his face!” you exclaim.“.....I guess…. You’ll help me, right? Train for it, I mean.” she finally answers.You…1. Promise Hinata you’ll help her beat Neji2. Explain that this is something she needs to accomplish on her own.3. Be non-committal
>>47599095>4. I can give a little help, but our styles don't mesh well. Best I can do is spar against you and push.
>>47599095>1. Promise Hinata you’ll help her beat NejiI can't really see how she'd do it on her own yet. I'd say get her started then let her go on her own from there
>>47599095>1. Promise Hinata you’ll help her beat NejiBut it's her fight ultimately to win. Wet just need to help her get ready
>>47599095>1>2We'll definitely give her some help, but the real effort needs to be on her part.
>>47599095>1. Promise Hinata you’ll help her beat NejiWe will train together to reach our own goals! We will help each other
>>47599095>1. Promise Hinata you’ll help her beat NejiStart playing the Japanese-language cover of "Eye of the Tiger", because we're going to Rocky the fuck out of you, Hinata.
>>47599095>1. Promise Hinata you’ll help her beat NejiGet Nori to help out too.Hey Wargle, please don't delay the husbando wars untill the very end and make all the choices end up hurting somebody Tsumi cares about.Yes Laze, I'm still fucking mad. Fix that shit.
A promise is a promise, anons!Writing.
>>47599194You all chose to do it.It's your fault. Not his.
>>47599095>1. Promise Hinata you’ll help her beat NejiIll help you how I can and get you started, did you like using the short bow?
>>47599194Ninshu, not even once anon.
>>47599194>all the choices end up hurting somebody Tsumi cares aboutLove is a battlefield anon.
>>47599308He is the true Ninja Jesus.
>>47599308He died so that Team Mega Milk could be born.
>>47599462Truly a worth sacrifice.
“I’ll definitely help you, Hinata. Nori will too! We’ve all got to achieve our goals together.” you say, trying to sound inspirational.Hinata smiles. You’ve clearly lifted her spirits.“Now, as to how to beat him, that’s a tough question….” you ponder aloud. “We’ll definitely need to watch his fight against Nori’s brother, and maybe a few others, just to see how he fights.”“I-I’ve been watching him already…. I know how he’ll fight. He uses the Gentle Fist, same as I do. Although I know father never taught it to him, so I couldn’t say how he learned it.” she reports.That makes it straightforward, then. Just need to counter a Dojutsu-based combat style honed down by generations of one of the most powerful shinobi families in Konoha. Easy.“Well, my assumption is that as of now, he’s more proficient in it than you are… so we’ll need to figure out a way to beat it. Having you both use the same technique is just a battle of attrition, and by physical conditioning and experience alone, he’ll beat you out there.” you analyze, resting your pointer finger on your chin.“The Byakugan isn’t foolproof, Tsuki-hime.” she says, plans of her own beginning to form behind a hardened expression. “It’s range is limited until you grow more used to using it, and it has a blind spot- right above the third thoracic vertebrae.”You take this in- you hadn’t known about this weakness.Using this knowledge, you suggest…1. A ranged weapon. Maybe a bow?2. Clones? I have just the jutsu for you….3. Waiting, for now. You still want to see how Neji fights.
>>47599560>3. Waiting, for now. You still want to see how Neji fights.lets not get ahead of ourselves
>>47599560>3. Waiting, for now. You still want to see how Neji fights.Also, don't give away a big weakness that easily!
>>47599560>3. Waiting, for now. You still want to see how Neji fights.
>>475995601. A ranged weapon. Maybe a bow?2. Clones? I have just the jutsu for you…Combine them. Ruin his face
>>47599560Waiting, although a ranged weapon is always useful.
>>47599560>3. Waiting, for now. You still want to see how Neji fights.We should consult Danzo, he may know something that might help.
>>47599560>>3. Waiting, for now. You still want to see how Neji fights.
>>47599560>1. A ranged weapon. Maybe a bow?>3. Waiting, for now. You still want to see how Neji fights.
>>47599560>3. Waiting, for now. You still want to see how Neji fights.1. A ranged weapon. Maybe a bow?Actually, with the Byakugan, using that weapon that is essentially a metal ball on a line (can't think of the name) would be pretty good. They could always see where it is and not have wholely rely on training to feel where it is. Jackie Chan used something similar in Shanghai Noon but it was a Sheriff's star badge on a rope. Just an idea.
FINEI ADMIT ITTHE NINSHU WAS MY IDEA, ANONS!I DIDN'T WANT THISI NEVER WANTED THISoh god what have i done we promised to protect that smile forever
>>47599560>>47599708Supporting asking Danzo. Of course he is going to know how to counter it, in case the the clan ever threatened the Leaf.
>>47599799We should ask for his second or third best idea though. Best idea might point too directly at him/us. Gotta play the angled shadows people!
Postponing Project ruin Neji.Writing.
I am thinking the physical counter to the Byakugan and Gentle Fist is a good ground game. Some jujitsu perhaps.
>>47599882Well to counter gentle fist...how about come chakra conducting metal as a net weave? rather than the jabs knocking out nodes, it would disperse into the net mesh?
>>47599882Honestly all you would need to do would be figuring out how to cut the chakra flow to the eyes and then the style becomes much weaker
Just activate the main branch curse seal
>>47599194Hey half of that was a deliberate compromise by anons to avoid waifu war losers ruining the rest of the quest out of spite. Ninshu was totally fucking dumb though.
>>47599776Someone mind informing me about what happened? I dropped Laze's quest because his grammar/writing was shit, at least in the first few threads. And, you know, because it was a carbon copy of the Naruto plot.
>>47599942Or spiked armor hidden under Hinata's already bulky sweats. Kinda hard to focus on precise chakra blocking strikes when you just impaled your hand on a 2 1/2 inch long barbed spike. Plus Hinata would know where all the chakra pressure points are already and thus where the spikes need to go. "The Hyyuga can not block your chakra if you disable his hand."
>>47600036>Hinata have you heard about the Armor of Thorns?
>>47599962You mean useless. No magic eyes = no Gentle Fist, hard stop.
>>47599992>And, you know, because it was a carbon copy of the Naruto plot.Oh, you're THAT anon.
>>47600036All you gotta do is chop off his hands, Anon. Simple as that.
>>47600057If you have the points memorized then you can still do some damage
>>47600058I left after we somehow convinced Haku to not kill himself or whatever. Felt too much like a giant fanwank. I can deal with something well-written, like the Boruto quest or this one, but I couldn't stay with that shit. That a problem, Anon?
Hang on why don't we get Hinata into hard Genjutsu, that shit fucks Neji right up. Hinata is Water nature I believe, so we should have her learn, water clones and water prison. If he is trapped and can't move he is useless.
>>47600058Not the same guy but those were the same reasons I dropped it.>>47600074No other ninjas used anything like that in the series so I am forced to assume that the eyes are necessary for the chakra blocking to work.>>47600120Magic eyes can tell when you are using genjutsu by your chakra flow making it easy to dispel unless it is some jounin/sharingan level shit.
>>47600036That's pretty sneaky anon. I like it.
“First of all- you probably shouldn’t be just letting people know that, Hinata.” you scold. “It’s ok, I trust you, Tsuki-hime!” she says, smiling.While you’re glad to hear that, it doesn’t really change the gravity of what she just told you…“Regardless, some mixture of clones and a ranged weapon might work, but I’m going to opt in favor of waiting until we see Neji in action- not just sparring or practicing.” you say.She nods, and the two of you spend some time just relaxing.-------------------------------------------------------------------------You still have some time left in the day. You could go to the weapons store, to collect your order, and maybe look into some more unique equipment; you could also go talk to the Fourth. You wonder if he’s made his choice about Ebisu sensei’s replacement yet.You…1. Go visit TenTen and the Ninja Supply Store2. Go visit the Fourth3. Go home instead. (Will end the day)
>>47600208>1. Go visit TenTen and the Ninja Supply Store
>>476002081. Go visit TenTen and the Ninja Supply StoreTime for ninja makeover
>>47600208>3. Go home instead. (Will end the day)Just collect our shit off-screen. Ask Danzo about how to help Hinata.
>>47600208>1. Go visit TenTen and the Ninja Supply Storeneed training blades made to be mock ups of the ones we can't use in village.
>>47599776It's all your fault~!
>>47600208>4. Go home, arrange to have someone pick up your order, and ask Danzo how to deal with the Neji issue.
>>47600208>3. Go home instead. (Will end the day)Go to Danzo...now is the time. Also for the moment keep what we learnt about the Byuakugan secret, play close to the chest.
>>47600208>3. Go home instead. (Will end the day)
>>476002083. Go home instead. (Will end the day)Danzo-sama teach us, if he don't practice sitting around with 2 shadow clones
>>476002083. Go home instead. (Will end the day)Sorry! Change my vote to this, eager for my danzo
You fucks and your ties
>>476002082. Go visit the Fourth
>>47600429I'll break it.>1. Go visit TenTen and the Ninja Supply StoreSounds interesting.
>>47600429You love it though.
>>47600537>>47600429Yeah! You love it!
visiting TenTenNo Ninshu guise, seriouslyI'll try to wrap it up somewhat quick for Danzo/Training fags
What the fuck is this Ninshu shit? I don't follow Laze's quest. All I know is it involves waifu slap fights.
>>47600649From what I can tell it's basically a Vulcan mind-meld, sharing memories with someone else. This particular one ended very badly.
>>47600649it's a make everyone get along jutsu via showing them everything about you while you see everything about them, doing that to a girl who loves you but can't have you because you chose someone else is just stupid.
>>47600649Ya know Sasuke really picked the right girl. When Naruto is forced to fuck a prune looking Hinata, he is still going to be tapping an 18 year old looking Sakura ass.
>>47600690Just one glaring problem with that.He married Sakura
>>47600592Thank you, sensei!
>>47600120> Hinata is Water nature I believeThis makes me really mad. I know it's not your fault, because everyone and their dog headcanons it that way, but that's 112% incorrect.Does anyone ever check the wiki?Hinata can use 2 releases: Fire and LightningAnd let's be honest with ourselves, she didn't start with lightning.Also on this note are her canon teammates;Shino is FireKiba is Earth>>47600152It's certainly true that in a combat situation shutting of the tenketsu is basically impossible if you can't see the things. Buuuut jamming energy spikes into people will still have an effect. If you can tag someone in the torso enough you're pretty much guaranteed to shred some organs.
>>47600685>>47600687That sounds gay as hell.
You decide to head towards TenTen’s family shop. Hinata decides to head home along the way, so you say your goodbyes.As you peep inside, you can see her furiously cleaning the counter- the store is nearly empty.As if on some intuition, she tosses a kunai at the door- where it sticks in the doorframe, inches from your face. “No window shoppers! She yells- and then sees who she’s threatening.“A-ah! Tsuki-hime! Sorry, sorry! Business has been poor today, and…..”“It’s alright, Tenten, you didn’t hit me anyway.” you say- although you’d be far less magnanimous is she’d hit your hair. “I’m here for my order- also, I had a another question for you.”“Oh! Sure! I’ll go grab it right now!” she says, bolting off.As she goes to grab your fan, you consider what to ask about…1. Training swords? Might be useful to practice with, even if you don’t have a trainer right now.2. Focus more on ranged weaponry.3. Opt for something more unique, like puppetry.
>>47600704Just gag her. Boom. Like 50% less annoying.
>>47600817>1. Training swords? Might be useful to practice with, even if you don’t have a trainer right now.
>>47600817>3. Opt for something more unique, like puppetry.A princess keeps her hands undamaged and soft.We never specialise for once lets do it
>>47600817Let's ask about puppets. We have money to burn and things to learn.
>>47600817>1. Training swords? Might be useful to practice with, even if you don’t have a trainer right now.>>47600783No, you're gay!Actually yeah, it's kinda gay. Anything Naruto related is pretty much kinda gay.
>>47600856Nah Anon. Gotta beef up that taijutsu!
>>476008173. Opt for something more unique, like puppetry.have the puppet wield the swords!also>>47600834bad anon
>>47600649Anons used the canon get along super jutsu and made some bad choices to try to either get a harem ending, or at least appease herIt did exactly the opposite
>>47600890>>47600890Puppets can't do chakra stuff unless their human puppets. Fairly sure the swords need chakra to work.
>>476008173. Opt for something more unique, like puppetry.lets see what she has first
>>476008173. Opt for something more unique, like puppetry.
>>47600928Ah, ok then, just the swords since really the ones were training to use are basically casting apparatuses.
swordfags unitecasual inquiry into puppets for funwriting.
>>47600993Yeah, that's how I'm feeling.Swords for taijutsu now. Try out puppets later on.
>>47601011We can't keep spreading our skills out, else we'll never get good at anythingAnd a proper princess doesn't settle for mediocre!
If we ever get into puppets, we gotta accessorize the shit out of them. They'd be like life-sized weaponized barbie dolls.
>>47601044This is honestly the problem were running into in Boruto quest we made a guy who is a great all arounder but he can't go toe to toe against people
>>47601044>spreading our skills outI'm saying we focus on taijutsu for a bit, since it's fucking half a point.
>>47601114That's not really it, he's absolutely a specialist, and that specialty is not going toe to toe with people.
>>47601120It's more like why bother with puppets at all?
>>47601192Give it a shot.Not saying we should specialize in it or something. Just that giving it a try might be fun.
We could get some bodyguard puppets, or maybe some kind of Chinese dragon! have it channel our Jutsu
Mostly though I see Tsuki focusing on offensive casting... I mean ninjutsu, basically go full black mage with a ranged backup... or we could end up a bow-wielding red mage if we learned healing jutsu... fancy magic archer...
Tenten shortly returns, with a finely wrapped package, which she hands to you with a smile.“Customized as requested, Tsuki-hime. So what was your question?”“I was looking into possibly getting some practice swords- my taijutsu leaves a lot to be desired.” you say, mumbling the latter half.Her eyes light up.“Oh Tsuki-hime, I knew you’d come around! Taijutsu may not be your strength, but it’s an important skill for all ninja! Have you found anyone to teach you yet? I’d be happy to help! That is if your sensei-”Your eyebrows twitch.She cuts herself off, suddenly.“Sorry, Tsuki-hime. I got a little carried away there. Please don’t be upset….”You exhale. It’s not her fault.“It’s fine, Tenten. I’m not so fragile as to be bowled over with a few words. I also wanted to know about puppetry, if you have a moment.” you say with a forgiving smile.“R-right, puppets. We don’t have a ton in stock, as not many Leaf shinobi uses puppets- but I admit, from a skillset perspective, you are suited for it. It requires high chakra control and both the speed and intelligence to command the puppet and outplay your opponents- and since the puppet does the hitting, it requires next to no skill in taijutsu or physical strength.”You…1. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.2. Inquire about puppets further.3. Talk to Tenten about Taijutsu training.
>>47601257> Practice blades> Tenten taijutsu time is go
>>47601257>3. Talk to Tenten about Taijutsu training.
>>476012571. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now
>>47601257>1. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.Puppets are meh tier.
>>47601257>1. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.>2. Inquire about puppets further.Order the blades but ask about the puppets, we are suited for this and can stop ourselves looking like a brute.
>>47601257>1. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.>3. Talk to Tenten about Taijutsu training.a cover for danzo training and a sparring partner
>>47601257>1. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.>3. Talk to Tenten about Taijutsu training.>4. Ninshu
>>476012571. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.
>>47601290Their only good if your in Suna and get to learn from actual masters, anywhere else is shit
>>47601257>1. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.
>>47601257>1. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.>3. Talk to Tenten about Taijutsu training.
>>47601257>3. Talk to Tenten about Taijutsu training.Can we not do puppets? I don't think it's very fitting.
>>47601257>Every time someone mentions ebisu from here on
>>47601307Hey they're not NECESSARILY shit, they can also be extremely mediocre after a shitload of wheel reinventing.
>>476012572. Inquire about puppets further.3. Talk to Tenten about Taijutsu trainingWe were made for puppets. We could probably train both at the same time since we have such great control Stat and taijutsu ain't Chakra intensive
>>47601257>1. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.>2. Inquire about puppets further."Could I, theoretically of course, utilize shadow clones to control with chakra threads to control one very large puppet?"
>>47601365Why not just use it ourselves? That sounds like a huge waste of chakra.
>>47601365Please ignore the typo.
>>47601257>1. Just order a pair of practice blades, for now.>2. Inquire about puppets further.>3. Talk to Tenten about Taijutsu training.
>>47601257>2. Inquire about puppets further.Thought about it some more and I really like the idea of the puppets. Besides won't we need our hands mostly free to use hand signs?
Puppets are pretty good for keikaku, you can use them like shadow clones that shoot fire and poison, and if you get good enough as mech-suits!
Primarily swords. Other two mixed inI'm not trying to push puppets, but the stats you guys rolled are really good for puppetry. I just wanted to make the choice clear.Writing.
>>47601467Swordninjas... seem to have that figured out?
>>47601467You have to use your hands to control the puppets, anon. You control them with your fingers.I really don't get why everyone wants to try puppets at the first opportunity in every naruto quest. I mean, I get it, it's cool, but it's useless outside of Sunagakure, where people actually know how to use it.
>>47601496I know.Swords are more taijutsu focused than puppets are, and I'd love to remove it as a weakness.THEN puppets.
>>47601533>but it's uselessYet Wargle said our stats are very good for it.I wanna focus on straight taijutsu first, though.
>>47601533Exactly, we have no one to learn it from in Konoha and no grand masters from Suna are going to teach us it
>>47601496Let's make this clear - will the puppets be able to use the Kiba? Because I don't believe that's a thing, because you'd think they would require chakra to do the lightning stuff.
>>47601564Danzo could find someone, I bet.
I actually want to take a different approach to puppets.Namely by puppetizing the entire mansion and grounds, and carrying equipment that would let us do the same anywhere else.Hiding in the tree? THE TREE IS TRYING TO EAT YOU!Hiding underground? THE GROUND IS FULL OF CHAINSAWSYou see that rock? THE ROCK IS ACTUALLY A TRANSFORMERThat bush over there? EXPLODES INTO POISON AND NEEDLESYour buddy? PUPPET
>>47601533Because no one has done puppets before. They are fucking awesomely versatile. But no, let's ignore everything we did before now and how we built our character to play fightan' sticks. We gonna be smartest muscle wizard
>>47601583But of the level where were it can actually become viable is much harder and theres only one missing nin whose good enough at that Sasori
>>47601604>Your mother and father? Puppets!>Your entire village is puppets!
>>47601625That's the only person we know about.There's plausibly others out there. Or an OC Wargle makes.
>>47601680If he can get us Sasori then fine lets do puppets
It's like you people don't want puppet-tech power armor that flies around using plasma Iron Man style.
I'm not a bad enough QM to limit you solely on what you choose to focus on. While it would be more tedious to find a master puppet-user to learn from, I'm not going to make it impossible. I want you guys to have fun;to balance out my impulses
ALL ABOARD THE PUPPET TRAIN, ALL ABOARD TSUKI AND SASORI'S QUEST FOR AESTHETICS!
I was gonna say we could deliberately pick missions that would set us against suna ninja to try to loot puppets to reverse engineer but there's like, a positive relationship there isn't there. We'd probably get in trouble for that. [Spoiler]unless we kept them in our hidden lair![/spoiler]
>>47601607We're picking up the basics of Taijustsu because we're garbage at it and need to round ourselves out.We have great stats for basically everything else. Why don't we learn how to breathe fire or something else practical that our talents are suited for instead of immediately jumping to puppets, which seems like a really in-depth and defining thing.
>>47601731Anon I don't want a genjutsu guy to take out our eye with a senbon
If we go puppets im gonna have so much fun drawing loads of ideas ive got up
>>47601784That's why you make extra replacements, anon
>>47601750... though I wouldn't be surprised if danzo had contacts that could get us puppets that OTHER guys looted in fights to dissect...
>>47601784BUT THEN WE REPLACE IT WITH STAR-ehr, PUPPET TECH
>>47601731This. Why is no one using their brains? We have tons of money to throw. Let's be Tsuki Stark
>>47601784That's why you use a shadow clone to pilot the puppet, then puppet it from the outside when the shadow clone pops, then switch places with the puppet when someone comes after you. There is infinite potential for keikakuing people into shoving their arms into a blender or trying to grapple with a circular saw!
>>47601832With a puppet eye that spits acid! Or we get supergood at puppetry that we cut out our tongue and replace it with a lifelike puppet replica! That spits acid or shoot a bunch of needles! Kiss of a hundred needles!
>>47601887We are not going to be princess body horror
>>47601731>>47601876Ehhhh. Iron man puppet armor has it's downsides. It'd totally negate our need for taijutsu skills, but we wouldn't be able to do any kind of ninjutsu. We might still be able to use the Kiba, though.If you anons really wanna do puppets we can, I've just never seen anybody really go with it. Just please don't go autistic over it, it has actual potential.
>>47601732I'm voting for puppets in private. Our root personality can use puppets in combat. Let's ask Danzo to order one for us so no one can link it to tsuki
>>47601883Pretty sure clones can't use puppets. They don't have enough chakra. Pretty sure we can't make clones while using puppets, either.Now, an army of puppet imitators I could get behind.
>>47601928This guy has all of my yes! Nobody would suspect!
Puppets in private sounds cool, I really want us to try a character who uses them rather than the power Armour approach though.
>>47601912Depending on how we pilot it, we could have room to move our arms to make hand seals inside the suit, and channel the jutsu out. We can also just seal jutsu into scropls like the ninja tool in boruto
>>47601989yeah, a full entourage for the princess, or perhaps have them based of the fantasy adventurer party archetypes with Tsuki as the mage, puppets for the others.
A whole private identity is kinda... out there from our current character?
“I’ll definitely take some training swords, Tenten.” you say, the impending sale brightening Tenten’s disposition.“I might just take you up on some sparring to train up my Taijutsu abilities, as well. I need to make sure to round out my bases.” you continue.Tenten smiles wider. “Of course, Tsuki-hime. I’d be glad to teach you in my downtime. Of course, that would only be when our schedules don’t conflict, but I'm not worried."“I look forward to it, Tenten.” you respond, returning her smile. You genuinely do, as well. Tenten was one of your friends at the academy, and with life being so hectic lately, it seems like you really haven’t had much time to visit her. “Anything else I should know about puppetry?” you say in passing, as Tenten scours her wares for a suitable pair of training blades.“Well, obviously you use chakra to control the puppet. Some people only need one hand to control one- I’ve heard of some masters even able to control one with a finger! That would probably take a lot of practice, though. They’re also highly customizable, and as a result can be retrofitted to deal with a great number of situations. As specialized as they are, the fighting style is highly adaptable.” Tenten reports.“Oh, and they do require lots of practice to use. Not many people use them for this reason- at the end of the day it’s simply too much work for most.”Eventually she decides on a pair, and rings you up. You pay with your own ryo this time- you had some pocket cash, and the training blades aren’t that much, anyway. “Just let me know about the training, Tsuki-hime. Oh, and don’t feel pressured on picking a style. We’re still genin, after all! We have a long time to decide how we wish to specialize, if at all.” she says as you depart.You thank her for the advice, and move on towards home. The sun is setting anyway, and you wouldn’t want to miss dinner.Besides, tomorrow your training with Danzo begins.
>>47601989Same here anon normal puppets by themselves are really cool plus you can do alot more if your not inside one
>>47601928>>47601989This actually works and makes a lot of sense. Having our 'alter ego' use puppets works really well for spy-work and lets us keep our distance from actual events.Plus if anyone ever suspects us, we can have our Root identity show up as a puppet while we're present to throw off suspicionPlus then we can still do all the random puppet stuff people might want, just in secret.
>>47602058In character we would ask Danzo to order us one cause he can get the good shit. In OOC maybe we hope for Danzo to Reveal more Root shit to us and we can decide then.
>>47602062Time skip when?
>>47601935Puppets don't really require chakra to work. The only chakra involved is making the strings, the rest is just machinery and seals. Now something like Sasori's red army, where he's controlling hundreds of puppets at once, I can imagine would take a lot of chakra, but just one should be negligible.
Can chakra even be funneled through puppets? Because I'm pretty sure that's why Sasori made the human puppets - because you can't do chakra stuff with puppets, but with human puppets, they can do whatever jutsu they knew in life. Like, you can control them all you want, and put whatever neat tricks and traps in there all you want, but you can't do jutsu stuff. So you have to use tech instead.
Dinner was a blur to you- you were so focused on getting through the day that you hardly ate. You even had problems sleeping, for the first time since you were little girl- you were simply that excited. You find your eager self in the ROOT facility under the manor, with Danzo nearby. You went to him at dawn, only to find him waiting for you, as always. He seemed very amused by your enthusiasm. Eventually, the two of you sit, opposite of one another, in the sparring area. “Now, Tsuki-dono. This part may take a bit of time, so I do not want you to get discouraged. Working on your release will require you to know your own chakra- how it feels, how it flows, how it reacts to different movements. I can lead you through this process, but I do not share your talent. It will be entirely up to you how this ability manifests.” Danzo says, with his ever present stoicism.“First, I’d like you to concentrate your flow of chakra- your hand is a good target, for now. Simply build up the chakra, and see how it feels. We’ll go from there.”You take a deep breath,,,,(Roll 1d100, first 5!)(No, you cannot fail this roll.)
The third-world hellhole civil war ninja quest over on sufficient velocity has a puppeteer if you really really REALLY need a puppetry fix

>>47602298>>47602309>>47602315jesus, Tsuki's going hard.
Dice for the dice godsWriting
Could we make a shadow clone practice puppetry while we do taijutsu training? Pretty sure the only thing that would drain our chakra in that situation would be the shadow clone itself and its attempts to manipulate chakra into the strings.
>>47602348I guess the dice gods felt bad about Ebisu and are trying to make up for it.
>>47602380That... is not a bad idea.
>>47602380I fully support this even if we are just doing a super basic puppet. We could practice. Maybe Danzo/ROOT have some totes forbidden puppets/manuals from the good old days.
>>47602456>This one is made from chakra-infused trees, forbidden by the Third>This one utilizes the still-beating heart of the former Jinchuriki of the Four-Tails>And this one has bladed fingers, why is it forbidden you ask? Well, the answer is Thousand Years of Death.
>>47602456I imagine it's be less "forbidden" and more "let's not start an international incident"
>>47602511>And this one is an anthropomorphic chibi cat. There's nothing sinister about it, I just think it's adorable.
The first thing you notice is the heat- the same heat you nearly burned yourself with before. You can feel it, as you concentrate. It flows- not unlike water, in a strange way. As you feel it begin to pool in your hand, however, it begins to churn. As it churns, you feel it flow outward from the palm of your hand, in waves, spiraling outwards. The hairs on your arm stand on end.You feel like you can control it- somewhat. How do you wish to mold the chakra?1. Add more chakra!2. Try to condense the chakra3. Attempt to direct the flow of chakra4. Internalize the chakra5. Use a different body part to try and utilize the chakra>Write-in.

It’s too unruly- adding more chakra just seems to increase how much flows away. What if you were able to condense it?You begin to focus a similar amount of chakra in your other hand. With practiced precision, you bring your hands together, whilst increase the flow. You feel it churn- faster, and faster. With seemingly nowhere to escape, the chakra condenses. It begins to get hotter- and hotter.You begin to sweat- the heat coming from your hands is nearly unbearable.Just as you’re about to release it- you feel it. A ball of chakra- tiny- but heavy. It is also voraciously consuming your chakra. You remove the hand on top, and you see it- tiny, but impossibly bright. Suspended in your hand is a pinprick of light- ugh, but why is it so heavy?You look up at Danzo, who seems genuinely surprised. What do your do with your creation?>Write-in
>>47602754Maybe YOU'RE the puppet, man, ever thought of that????
>>47602815Chuck it at something
>>47602815Slam it into the ground (away from the scrolls and burnable items)
>>47602815SEND IT FORTH TO CONQUER AND RULE!!!!!!Seriously though throw it at something.
>>47602815>Write-inTouch something with it.Like a wooden dummy or something we can stand losing.
>>47602815Chuck it at a training dummy.
>>47602815>Find someplace away from the both of you and launch the thing at it.
>>47602815Chuck it at a training dummy so way away from us
>>47602815STAR RELEASE IS GO
>>47602815Try to move it about with your will, super plasma bit go!
>>47602899>post yfw our bingo book name is Starfire
>>47602815Ask for a training dummy you want to see what happens when something touches it.
>>47602815We're a dragonball
>>47602815make it bigger
There’s a dummy across the training area…You tell Danzo what you're about to do- he stands up, and then proceeds to a safe distanceYou begin to stand, trying to keep the light steady- it’s really quite difficult! It’s weight seems to be increasing, ever so slightly, as you stand. All the while, it continues to consume your chakra.It’s heavy enough that throwing it normally isn’t an option- you try to launch it instead, by thrusting with your open palm. It flies in an odd arc- as it did truly have weight to it. Shortly after you released it, you felt the light stop devouring your chakra- though halfway through it’s destination, it begins to grow. Finally, it reaches it target- immediately, you’re blinded. When the light fades, the dummy at which you threw the light, it almost entirely gone- the stump of it’s base looking as if it had been cut cleanly, as some odd curvature. Also, it smells very strange- like burnt wood and another smell, sharp and metallic.Well, that was certainly interesting.
>>47603180BLACK HOLE RELEASE IS GO
>>47603203What? No.Ion Release.
>>47603180Stellar release... and I don't just mean to say that it's good
>>47603180Next we should try to channel some of it into a shadow clone
>>47603180basically death if it hits anyone then, nice, just need to work on firing it faster or en masse.
>>47603222>Stellar releaseThat's a good one too!
>>47603180now make a clone out of it
>>47603244Yeah I like the idea behind star but it didn't have enough oomph, so I thought, stellar.
We just tried a bomb like method, lets now try a flamethrower approach
>>47603311Honestly I like that one better than Plasma or Solar, but I wanna see what other forms of our release look like before naming it Stellar.>>47603331I agree.
>>47603180Biidama Bakuhatsu might be a good name for this proto jutsu.
>>47603331>>47603335These guys get it, try using it like a flamer like fire jutsu, get all the shaped methods down. internalizing it may give us a crazy boost.
Danzo’s brow is knitted- he’s obviously thinking about something. “Tsuki-dono, this power of yours is… quite unlike anything I’ve seen. I doubt this is the only application of it, and we’ll need to have you continue to practice and refine it. In it’s current state, it’s somewhat impractical, but I’m willing to guess it has many other uses.It will take time and effort, surely, but you’re satisfied with the result.(You’ve gained the ability to channel (Name Pending) Release! Skill: 0.5/5)(Continue to train to unlock new abilities, and new facets of your release!)Alright folks, let’s name this thing. Now is the time.List names below, and I’ll pull popular ones for a formalized vote.
Nova Release? Assuming most of our techniques have similar properties to out death marble.
Sounds like Fusion release.
>>47603385Cosmic ReleaseorShooting or Falling Star Release
>>47603415If that's true, then a move based on Cold Fusion would be fucking insane.
>>47603385I like Stellar. Stars fit the moon theme, and the ball we created more closely resembles a Star than the Sun, and other stuff sounds a bit too science-y.
>>47603385Star ReleaseStellar ReleaseEsper ReleaseCelestial ReleaseSolar ReleaseLuminous Release
Lucid Release. Named for the bright light it gave off.
>>47603385Aurora Release, because, yeah
>>47603385Nova release or Stellar release.
Nova and Stellar Release seem the most popular, so we'll call it here.1. Nova Release2. Stellar Release
>>47603531>2. Stellar Release
>>47603531>1. Nova Release
>>47603531>2. Stellar ReleaseTsukihime, the moon that commands the stars.
>>476035311. Nova Release
>>47603531>Stellar Release>>47603566Shit that's good
>>47603566Fighting evil by mooon liiight!
>>47603566>Tsukihime, the moon that commands the stars.>>47603624Kek
Stellar by a wide margin.Let it be known be known far and wide that the Princess of the Moon commands the Stars.
well maybe Nova can be used in one of the stellar release jutsu names
>>47603651I can see the kaguya fight being mighty interesting
>>47603667Agreed.I like Nova quite a bit too, but Stellar is better.
>>47603667Thats an idea.
>>47603667Nova Marble? Nova Pearl? For the thing we just used?
>>47603698I think Stellar Release: Shooting Star works best
>>47603698I like Nova Marble.
>>47603667We can make all sorts of star themed techniques, like Solar Flare, Nova, Supernova, Milky Way, etc... I'm thinking Nova for this first technique, though shooting star is really good.
>>47603667A lot of the names can fit in with stellar. For instance, if we figure out how to pump out more light rather than heat we can complete our journey towards becoming a dragonball with Solar Flare.
>>47603710Shooting Star for when we can shoot it.>>47603698>>47603712Maybe Nova Marbles for when/if we can throw a bunch of them at people?>>47603715A nonlethal move could be like a flashbang.
Wait... If the chunin exams are being held in konoha and are happening way earlier than in canon does that mean that she sand attack will be happening soon? If I doesn't happen then I will call bullshit if our chunin exams take place in konoha. That wouldn't make sense for two exams to be happen in the same place.
Ah say... what happens if we make a nova pearl and then... let a defect/crack form in a spot pointing at a target, jetting all that pent up energy in slashing solar flare.
>>47603736Nah these are the Chunin exams before the ones that Orochimaru attacked.
>>47603736Chunin exams are biannual anon. What you're seeing is the ones that should've been happening around the beginning of the series.Also, the Ninja villages only started holding joint chunin exams when tensions were lower.
>>47603736With Minato still at the helm sand attacks aren't necessarily guaranteed, foreign policy is likely to have been somewhat different.
>>47603698Pearl please.Stars come in all colours.Let them taste the rainbow.
>>47603667Nova fag, formaly Plasma fag here, I'm totally down with them both being attack names.Some ideas.>Flamethrower jutsu+Stellar release=Plasma Dragon Fire or something rad like that.>an upgraded more stable version of that star orb thing=Nova Grenade.Sleeping pills are my muse this night.
If we get a beam attack I like Stellar Release: Lance Lumiere. Yes its from Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer
Nova are explosionsso save the name for more explody thingsSupernova for HEUG explody
>>47603796I was just thinking comet, which is not THAT beamy but much more beamy than a lot of space stuff
We should create a jutsu that calls down a pillar of flame centered on a target, or possibly ourselves, if we are immune to its effects.Call it Nova Cascade.
>>47603870It seems like it's not guaranteed that we are though we're probably at least resistant.
“Have you thought of a name, Tsuki-dono?” Danzo asks while cleaning up the charred remains of the dummy.“I think I’ve decided on Stellar release.” you respond, waiting for his reaction.“Hah, very like you. I approve, Tsuki-dono.” Danzo says, his voice showing his amusement.“The Moon who commands the Stars… you may very well become the Leaf’s shining star, one day. I can only hope that star leads our people on the true and correct path.” he continues, his tone turning somber.Leading the Village? Not exactly what you had in mind, although…1. You aren’t necessarily against the idea- but you’d prefer to be behind the scenes.2. You quite like the idea. The Leaf deserves such a glorious leader.3. Reject the idea. Sounds like too much of a hassle.
>>47603894>1. You aren’t necessarily against the idea- but you’d prefer to be behind the scenes.
>>47603894>2. You quite like the idea. The Leaf deserves such a glorious leader.what teenage girl doesn't like telling people what to do?
>>47603894>2. You quite like the idea. The Leaf deserves such a glorious leader.
>>476038942. You quite like the idea. The Leaf deserves such a glorious leader.
>>47603894> 1Mini-Danzo yesssssssssssssAll we have to do is not go insane and it'll be great.
>>47603894>2. You quite like the idea. The Leaf deserves such a glorious leader.Root Princess incoming
>>47603894>1. You aren’t necessarily against the idea- but you’d prefer to be behind the scenes.FUCK YOU DANZO WE'LL MAKE A BETTER DANZO THAN YOU!!
>>47603894>1. You aren’t necessarily against the idea- but you’d prefer to be behind the scenes.>2. You quite like the idea. The Leaf deserves such a glorious leader.>3. Reject the idea. Sounds like too much of a hassle.Mix of all three.Curious but unsure. Will think about this later on.
>>47603921Meant 1 not 2
>>47603894Was>>47603912Changing to>You aren’t necessarily against the idea- but you’d prefer to be behind the scenes.Realized some moon behind the sun shit
>>47603894>2. You quite like the idea. The Leaf deserves such a glorious leader.>we ask for a puppet>danzo scratches his chin before snapping his fingers and plops sai in front of us
>>47603894>1. You aren’t necessarily against the idea- but you’d prefer to be behind the scenes.True Puppeteer
>>47603894>1. You aren’t necessarily against the idea- but you’d prefer to be behind the scenes.I like the theme of being sneaky and low-key in the open and incredibly flashy and obvious in secret.
>>47603945You quoted me there.Did you mean to quote another post?>>47603894
>>47603970Yeah, probably the one right after it sans greentextMobile-posting and all that
>>47603986It's fine.I totally get how shit mobile posting is.
Danzo's whole backstory is wanting to be hokage and being jelly of Hiruzen
Mixture of both. Writing.
>>47603894>4. Be the face of the Leaf. We shall use our brilliant radiance to inspire our allies, and use our searing wrath to quell our foes.WE are... Number 2.
“I wouldn’t mind helping guide our village- but then again, true power often lies behind those we see. Right, Danzo?” you say, quirking an eyebrow at the old man. He laughs“Ever attentive, young mistress. Though the Hokage is the leader, the final decision is not always his alone, and he can often be swayed by council. A better example would be the Daimyo, who rely entirely upon us while still proclaiming lordship over the land.”You think on this futhur.“Who is truly more valuable, the bright Sun that illuminates the sky, or the Moon and Stars, by whose light we can safely navigate the night?” you question.“Both have their merits, child. In our world, one cannot exist without the other. We would perish without the sun, truly, but without the light of the moon and stars, we would fall prey to the dangers of the night.” he says, somber once more.“If you intend to be one, I suggest you find someone you trust to become the other.”This conversation certainly got serious quickly. You decide to change the topic….1. Ask Danzo something about his past (What?)2. Ask Danzo something about your Father3. Ask Danzo about something else. (What?)4. Simply return to training.
>>47604144>3. Ask Danzo about something else. (What?)Did you know my mother?
>>47604144>1. Ask Danzo something about his pastWhat did you actually do in the past? and Who taught you all this?
>>47604144>2. Ask Danzo something about your Father"How did you and Father come to meet?"
>>47604144>3. Ask Danzo about something else. (What?)When did you and Father meet?
>>47604168This guy has a good idea right here.>3. Ask Danzo about ya mum.
>>47604144>>3. Ask Danzo about something else. (What?)>Did you know my mother?
>>47604144Mum's the word
Asking about Mom.Writing.
>>47603862The poles of black holes and white dwarfs can produce concentrated beams of high energy radiation capable of fucking shit up. Just something to think about.
>>47604339Does it have a quick name? Cause if not I'm gonna keep comit as my beam suggestion.
“Danzo…. Did you know my mother?” you ask.“Yes, Tsuki-dono, I did.” he replies, frowning.“What was she like? Where was she from? Father and Maru never talk about her…” you respond. There, you finally asked him. He surely won’t push your questions aside, as Maru does.“Your Father won’t like me telling you this, Tsuki-dono. He buries his memories of your mother deep, because they are so painful to him. If I sate your curiosity, please do not ask him about her, alright?” his frown has deepened, although he doesn’t seem angry.“Yes, of course.” you reply immediately. You wouldn’t want to hurt Father, obviously.“Your mother was a young girl from Kumogakure, the Hidden Cloud Village. Asa, her name was. During latter days of the war, with combat raging between Kumo and Konoha, she was injured during fighting not far from the border between the Land of Fire and the Land of Rain. Your father happened upon her then- whatever possessed him, I couldn’t say- and nursed her back from the brink of death. What a foreign born shinobi saw in your father, I’m not sure, but instead of returning to the fighting, she stayed with him. When the war ended, she came to Konoha as his wife- not an enemy shinobi. The newly inaugurated granted her clearance to stay, right as your father’s business began to really take off, after the post-war economic boom.”
He sighs.“Not too long after that, your mother was pregnant. How happy they both were. She chose your name, you know. They had everything all planned out.”“But there were complications- your mother had been a healthy pregnancy up until this point, under the watchful eye of the best medical professionals the Leaf had to offer. But then, the Third’s long shadow cast a pall over the Fourth’s choices, and many of these same people were forced to leave Konoha. Your mother’s labor was troubled, and she eventually passed to bring you into this world.” he finishes.“Your father loves you dearly, Tsuki. Never forget that. To him your are your mother born again, given all the chances she never had in life.”You’re left with many questions- and as you’re about to ask, a light begins to flash in the ceiling above.“Your father is calling for us- you must have a visitor. Come.”
>>47604489>you must have a visitor.NEW SENSEI HYPE
>>47604489>>47604503I hope they have candy
is our mom black!? Maximum overhype! Omoi is best cloud boy in our age range.
>>47604511Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker.
>>47604521Not every one in Kumo is black anon
>>47604489God he's trying to turn us against Minato and Hiruzen. I bet ya a couple thousand ryu (or whatever it is this setting uses for money) that Danzo had something to do with her death.>>47604521Not everyone in the cloud is black anon. But she could be.
>>47604530>>47604531I know that but I can always hope
Its illegal to have a to have a naruto /tg/ quest without exactly own close family member. Moot uses his hidden back door to give the FBI your IP and they bust down your door. True fact.
>>47604392Gamma-ray bursts. Could also use the class of celestial object they are associated with: magnetars. Or one of the properties of em radiation: redshift. I like Stellar Release: Redshift for something at the least.
>>47604531Get this hot head out of here
>>47604531>Not everyone in the cloud is black anonslander and liesits blacks and black albinos
>>47604553>Stellar Release: RedshiftShould be a thermal-based sensing technique.
>>47604531Or some of the best medical professionals happened to be part of ROOT, and the 3rd and 4th had themselves a good old fashioned witch hunt.
You keep quiet as you ride up the elevator- who could be visiting you right now? You had just seen Nori and Hinata yesterday…As you leave, Danzo waves you forward.“Young mistress, I suspect my presence is not warranted at this meeting. Please carry on. We shall continue soon enough.”Odd.You walk alone, from the basement to the main level, towards the foyer. First, you see your father. Even more odd. Your father doesn’t normally greet guests.The you see him- Minato, the Fourth Hokage, in your home. So, he’s come then- to issue you your replacement sensei.As you walk forward, you see his two confidants, Kakashi and Itachi. The right and left hands of the Hokage.“Ah, Tsuki!” Minato says, with a wide smile.“I wanted to come in person, not only to thank you for visiting Nori yesterday, but to also introduce you to your new sensei. Since you live a little farther outside of town than my family or the Hyuuga do, you were last on our little trip today.”As he speaks, you cannot help to remember what Danzo had said- the Fourth’s choices, while not intentional, led to your mother’s death during childbirth. Your head is full of conflicting feelings, but you voice none of them, simply staying silent.“...feeling a bit under the weather today, Tsuki? No matter, you have the rest of the the day to rest up before resuming training. But enough rambling, I’m here to introduce your sensei!” Minato finishes emphatically.
>>47604572Naw, it should be some sort of advanced shunshin.
>>47604602Gemma or aoba please!
>>47604602Why do I have the feeling its him
Edo Tensei Madara!
>>47604608I like it!Also exploding clones? Cosmic Clone. Or maybe Stardust Clone?
>>47604627Okay even if it somehow manages to be not Itachi this doesn't count as calling it because you basically listed off the entire bench
>>47604602Anko Anko no whammies Anko
Zabuza!!Pain!!Zetsu!!Ra's Al Ghul!!>>47604651Fine by me.
Mega Milk without Anko is just these little grade school cartons.Tsunade is acceptable though.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt!
>>47604644I'm thinking Nova clones, they explode violently when damaged or on command.
>>47604666>ZetsuI like it.
>>47604602I hope it's Anko.
He steps to the side, indicating the man standing to his left- Itachi Uchiha. “Hello, Tsuki Norihime. I am honored to serve as your teacher from this day forward.” he says in a deep, sonorous voice.He bows.“I am Itachi Uchiha, if you did not already know. Nori told me that she had voiced her suspicions as to my appointment to you yesterday.” he says, with a small smile.This is the first time you’ve heard him talk, you think to yourself….And while you’re thinking to yourself, you aren’t saying anything.The silence grows a bit protracted….Itachi frowns.“I hope my appointment does not disappoint you, Tsuki. I feel that I have much I can teach you.”You….1. Are disappointed2. Are actually excited.3. Don’t care one way or the other. This isn’t Ebisu-sensei- this is just a glorified bodyguard.
>>476047463. Don’t care one way or the other. This isn’t Ebisu-sensei- this is just a glorified bodyguard.But say2. Are actually excited.
>>47604709I guess triggering a mass explosion of said clones would be called E's gambit in honor of Ebisu?
>>47604746>1. Are disappointedNo team Mega-Milk, am disappoint in you, Wargle.
>>47604746>3. Don’t care one way or the other. This isn’t Ebisu-sensei- this is just a glorified bodyguard.
>>47604746>2. Are actually excited.Y..You have beutuful eyes.
>>47604746Bah3. Don’t care one way or the other. This isn’t Ebisu-sensei- this is just a glorified bodyguard.
>>47604746>3. Don’t care one way or the other. This isn’t Ebisu-sensei- this is just a glorified bodyguard.Remain polite but neutral...
>>476047464. Planning to make the most of it
>>47604746>Even with forewarning, getting taught by one of the Hokage's right hand men is so out there you aren't sure WHAT to feel.
>>47604764Sorry anon. It just didn't make sense for Minato to assign anyone but his best to watch over his daughter after she almost died. I couldn't get past it.
>>47604746>2. Are actually excited.Hey guys, you almost literally can't get better than Itachi for a sensei, though I hope he doesn't try to teach us the same way he taught Sasuke.
>>47604746It does not disappoint me but you are the left hand of the hokage. It would appear you would be more bodyguard for the three of us.
>>47604764Don't worry, all we have to do is roll a few more ones and we can get a new sensei!
>>47604746>1. Are disappointedUnless he later on does an Orochimaru and delves into the forbidden arts of Tig Ass Biddies, this is just gonna be hunting pets for months.
>>47604797Eh, who knows maybe our track record of sensei death will continue.
3, as expected.Writing.
>>47604797I mean Gemma is a top teir Jonin and is qualified to guard hokages. Plus he got zero screen time in the manga and in the quests :(Dude can spit so hard he can deflect a kunai.
>>47604746>2. Are actually excited.Keep up a strong and happy face Tsuki, we are every bit a lady and babysitter he may be we will give him a chance
>>47604853That I did not know... Is that actually true?
>>47604870Nope.I'm just retarded.
>>47604853>>47604870I don't think thats true. At least I can't find anything supporting it on narutopedia.
>>47604870I'm >>47604886I meant that I misread the names a good while ago and totally didn't notice they were different.>>47604899No. I misread and totally didn't notice.My stupid mistake.
>>47604904No fair don't hide your fuckup
>>47604921I'm not hiding it. I totally admitted to mistaking Genma Shiranui and Danzo Shimura.
“Disappointed would be the wrong word.” you say flatly. “I’m more concerned that this is a reaction to the death of our previous sensei. I would want a teacher, not a bodyguard. Nor a babysitter to watch me while I catch cats.”Itachi doesn’t say anything.Minato speaks up. “H-hey now, no need to be like that, Tsuki! Itachi is one of the best Konoha has to offer, and will teach the three of you a lot!”“Do not force her to do things she doesn’t wish to do, Minato.” Itachi says, drawing shock from most people in the room.“A good student wants to learn. She obviously wishes to grow, but it may not be under my guidance. Teaching should not be forced- it then becomes ineffectual.”Saying his piece, he turns around and leaves the manor- the Fourth looking somewhat flabbergasted and Kakashi reading some sort of book.Obviously the quality of Konoha’s leadership leaves much to be desired.
>>47604940I meant deleting it
And I'm gonna call it here, cuz I've got work in the morning. I'll run again tomorrow.@WargleQM for hatemail (or loveletters)I'll be around for a bit so you can tell me how awful I am <3
>>47604981thanks for runningthe blind man still the sensei?
>>47604981Can't wait!>>47604963Yeah.>>47604987Danzo isn't blind.
>>47604981So about that charCter I keep bringing up.... Any chance of him showing up at all? I'm pretty sure Laze has only mentioned him in his quest. No meaningful interaction at all.
>>47604996Itachi you silly billyhe was totes going blind from angst vision power eyes
>>47604981I actually feel a little bad, did we hurt Itachi's feelings? I don't wanna know details but how shut down is ROOT reallyDanzo forming his own elaborate plan?
>>47605010Ah. Well, that might not be the case here.
>>47604981Thanks for the run mate.
>>47605031A little. ROOT, as Danzo has said previously, is no longer active.
Hey Wargle, what would have happened if we choose the other choices when we were using our release(add more chakra, attempt to direct it, internalise it etc)
>>47604981On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being wet paper and 10 being Kaguya, how strong can Tsuki's release get?
>>47605005Sorry anon, I'm not entirely sure what you're referring to. I'm pretty tired.
>>47605064did it hurt because it was true?
>>47605071Different types of proto-jutsu. Many are still able to be developed.
>>47605076No definite numbers, But Tsuki as she is currently is a very offensively oriented character.
>>47605081Itachi.>>47605097What would have happened if we used the chakra internally?>>47605103Cool.
>>47605081Gemma. The super cool Jounin with the bandana and a bad case of no screen time. Based off the reasoning for choosing itachi I feel like he would also be viable.
>>47605089Itachi isn't the best when it comes to social interaction as it is, and was worried about something like this happened.
I'm still a little concerned that the prodigy who can call copy moves after seeing them once isn't gonna have the best understanding of the learning process for us normies, to be entirely honest.
>>47605117poor social potato sensei
>>47605108You can still find out.>>47605116He was on the short list. But I decided on Itachi because a great number of reasons. There is still room within the quest for the lesser known characters, believe me.
>>47605117Is itachi going blind?
>>47605151how did Nori and Hinata react to him?
>>47605151Based on Tsuki's personality up to this point in the thread, how well do you think she and Itachi will get along?
>>47605117Fella's I say we warm up the Itachi sensei, we know he's the left hand so we know he's done some serious shit even if we don't know what. Lets see if between three girls are can make him atleast half sociable.
Is it just me or is minato kind of a joke outside of combat? The leaf needs a new leader to guide it back to a golden era! An era of drills, and obnoxious laughter!
>>47605155He seemed to see you just fine
>>47605168Hinata was HinataNori was NoriThis isn't as much of a cop out answer as you might think
>>47605183We really don't know anything about him, just that he's probably pretty strong. Don't just dole out affection and admiration for free, make him work for it!
>>47605176Itachi is very non-confrontational. There will only be issues if Tsuki starts themWhich she very well could.
>>47605215Man I feel bad for Itachi, none of his students seem very enthusiastic about him.
>>47605240Time skip tomorrow?
>>47605251back at home, crying into his pillow
>>47605251Yeah looking at it like that we were probably the point where the pattern couldn't just be "well, that's just how she is"
>>47605264>>47605266Our collective dissapointment gave him the Mangekyo sharingan. Now he's going to go blind doing cool eye tricks to try to impress us.
>>47605234The reason I was suggesting it was so we could learn about the red eyed devils and learn all we can from him. Plus he may put in good words for us among the ANBU should we go that way, from there ROOT will spread and grow, a glorious parasite among the ANBU...
>>47605263Probably. Got through a decent amount today
>>47605320YayWhat will we get to do during the time skip?(I might have forgotten some things I already asked about it, so I'm asking again just in case)
Honestly, Itachi responded exactly the right way to convince me. I feel like he understands this whole thing better than anyone gives him credit for, including Minato.
>>47605574Yeah.I do want Tsuki and him to get along, but she wouldn't react to this introduction all that well.
>>47605574I still fully intend to ask him "so how much do you know about teaching people who aren't bullshit prodigies anyway" cause I think that legitimately merits an answer? Itachi is good but also seems like he's gonna have one of the worst knowing shit to actually being able to teach it ratios.
>>47605608Though she kinda is a bullshit prodigy.Or at least has some good shit going on with her.
>>47605608>>47605591Perhaps speaking to him without the Fourth breathing down his neck is called for. Lay out clearly that Ebisu gave his life so that Tsuki and Team Hime could have a chance to reach their potential, and that being babied through our tenure as Genin is a grave insult.
>>47606022Exactly!Also say that if he is going to be our teacher, we hope he'll do more than just be a babysitter.
