Shinobi Quest #12This 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/WiPdCqLH(Has been updated!)Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Shinobi%20QuestLast thread, Tsuki Norihime met General Doto of the Land of Snow, Talked to Danzo about business and politics, and brought him along to the chunin exams. She charmed her way into her own booth, and watched the semi-final round fight between Neji Hyuga and Hyo Arashi, of Yukigakure.
As the four of you interact, you hear the crowd murmuring again.Neji has left the arena, and Hyo has been collected by the medical-nin.You here the proctor announcing once more.Naruto Uzumaki!VS!Sai Hatake!The next round is starting…. The first person you see is Nori’s brother- wearing his trademark jacket. It looks really silly- Neji did call it garish, and you’re inclined to agree. It’s also quite worn- it must’ve been through quite a lot.The second boy comes out- this must be Sai, the third member of Neji and Naruto’s squad. He’s very pale, and wears dark, muted colors- very different from Naruto’s bright clothing.Naruto smiles- and assumes a combat stance. You can’t quite make out Sai’s face from here to see if he returns the smile.BEGIN!The fight has begun- is something you’re going to focus on observing?1. Just watch the fight unfold.2. Focus on Naruto, and his abilities.3. Focus on Sai, and his abilities. >Write-in

2, with Danzo's commentary.Writing.
Sai is our ROOT husbando
>>47670001Lee or bust.
>>47670014Thats not Shikarmaru
>>47670014No, you don't understand. Sai is like our mistress. We come to him in secret, on cold, lonely nights.Lee is still worst husbando
>>47670036>>47670043Lee is best.Shikamaru is also good, but I like Lee better.
>>47670001>>47670014>>47670036why take anyone at all?Also, reminder, Tsuki's fucking 12.
I'm holding out for an OC husbando. Or maybe Naruto, just so we can mess with Nori.
>>47670014Lee is best husbando. Sai may be acceptable, depending on how he acts here.
>>47670082and Neji in that case. But still holding out for Haku being not a dumbass/bitch
>>47670114I haven't spent much time reading or watching Sai, so I don't have as much affection for him as some other players.>>47670140Neji a shit
>>47670168Meant that it would mess with Neji AND Nori
>>47670168Pretty that was "and [also mess with] neji" not "and neji [as a husbando]"
>>47670168Think autist with magic painting skillz. Also insults everyone, either on accident or on purpose. Looks a bit like Sasuke.
>>47670208I know what he's generally like.I just haven't gotten to know him well enough.
Immediately, Sai jumps back- unfurling several scrolls as her does so. You see him splash a bit of int on each as he does so- and the drawings come out of the scrolls!Three painted lions, now in front of Sai, are in a formation around him. Naruto hasn’t moved. He just stands there, smiling.“Feh, my brother isn’t taking this seriously, ya know?” Nori growls, peering over the edge of the booth. “Inaction doesn’t mean he’s underestimating his opponent, young lady. Especially if they are familiar with one another’s techniques.” Danzo says, sitting, but still paying close attention.Finally, as Sai and his lions begin to inch closer, Naruto begins making a series of handsigns-“He’s using the shadow clone technique-” You, Danzo, and Nori all say at once.The three of you look at each other, surprised.“Look!” Hinata shouts.You turn back to the fight- Naruto has summoned three shadow clones, and is using them to fight off Sai’s lions. The real Naruto has taken off- directly towards Sai. You can see him wielding two tri-pronged kunai.In response, you see Sai pull out two tanto, and charge. The two clash, surrounded by the clones and lions. Both of them are very proficient in kenjutsu- each being able to keep up with one another, with blindingly fast slashes, stabs and parries. Sai’s weapons are particularly interesting; one is giving off white streaks of chakra as it moves, while the other seems to be coated in a black substance- ink, maybe?
>>47670227Dat white chakra dagger of the Hakate clan
Danzo speaks up again. “That would be Kakashi’s blade- the White Light Chakra Sabre. Belonged to his dad, Sakumo, before he passed. I’m not surprised he lent it to his adoptive brother, though. The other blade, I have no idea.”The two continue to exchange blows- though you can see Sai beginning to pressure him further. Maybe they weren’t so equally matched, after all? Eventually, Naruto jumps back- throwing the three-pronged kunai as he does so. Sai deflects them as he changes. Naruto, however, is ready.“Wind Release! Gale Palm!” he shouts, clapping his hands together.A great gale surges forth, stopping Sai in his tracks. Eventually, the wind knocks him over, and he flies back towards the arena wall just beneath your booth. You hear him hit it- hard. Naruto releases the technique, and seems to already be preparing something else- he seems to be trying to form some sort of chakra ball…But as he does so, black snakes, the color of ink, begin to wrap around him, biting him in places. You figure Sai must have released them as he was flying backward?The chakra in Naruto’s hand dissipates- you can see he’s having issues trying to remove them“When facing a superior opponent, you must gain an advantage- outwit them, bind them, hamstring them-” Danzo says, listing off various methods.You see Sai step forward back into view- unrolling a rather large piece of parchment.You’ve never seen anything like it’s drawing, which you can clearly make out from your seat-A Giant Nine-Tailed Fox.
>>47670559>he seems to be trying to form some sort of chakra ball…
>>47670559>A Giant Nine-Tailed Fox.
>>47670559Well, it'sin ink, at least. Probably ain't shit.
Well these boys are baling hard ball aint they. So far my strats are as followsHave Hinata sucker punch Neji in his branch Line nuts from below the ground before beating him while he's downStill workin on Naruto
You know Sai is actually not a bad option from a CK2 perspective. That painting is definitely a clever trick to pass on, Kakashi would have tons of stuff for nieces or nephews, the Hatakes aren't SO important that it'd basically be getting absorbed.
>>47670559SAI BEST HUSBANDO
“I hoped not to need to break this out so early, Naruto. Forgive me” you hear Sai say below you.You seem him flick his tanto- ink hits different pieces of the giant parchment- and a deafing roar fills the arena.“Fear,” Danzo finishes, “is also a wonderful tool.”The large black fox begins pulling itself free of the parchment, slowly. It’s eyes are a searing red- and it howls repeatedly in anger.Nori immediately pulls away from the window- you see her squat down and face away from the arena, covering her ears.“No, no, no. It isn’t him. It couldn’t possibly be. It’s just a trick. A dirty trick….”Meanwhile, Naruto’s face has gone white. The beast finally finishes pulling itself out of the parchment, growling ferociously towards Naruto, and the crowd at large.“Quite the rendition.” Danzo says, stroking his chin. “You’d think the boy had seen it himself.”Naruto, finally, seems to have freed himself from the ink snakes, just narrowly avoiding the swipe of the multi-tailed monster.His face has changed- the smile he wore, long gone. He looks furious.It seems claws are not this beast’s only weapons- it’s tails, swinging wildly around the arena, also fail to hit the dodging Naruto, but are pockmarking the arena with all sorts of holes.“Release it! This creature doesn’t belong here, or anywhere!” you hear Naruto yell over the roars of the fox. “Not until you give up, Naruto. I’m sorry, but this is the way it has to be.” Sai responds, barely audible over the commotion.The crowd, meanwhile, is in an uproar- some of them seem to be breaking into a panic.
>>47670778Well, this is a development innit.
>>47670705Hey, Hyuga can expell chakra from their chakra points. right? If so, can Hinata be trained to blast out chakra needles or something to protect against Neji's gentle fist? It would be a pain to block her chakra points if he got stabbed in the hand for each one.
>>47670778Sai, you dickThat's genius, but motherfucker might as well have summoned the Twin Towers
>>47670809Its best not to engage a Hyuga in CQB , we could just teach her how to create a clone then have her snipe him in the back. If you engage Neji in melee your boned.>>47670778$25 says Naruto punches him from below having subbed out for a clone
>>47670778Can we vote to hug Nori?
>>47670043wait, Sai already in chunin exams? wtf OP
>>47670847At the same time if she strays too far from the hyuga ideal the win would lose some of its meaning.
>>47670871He's got kakashi teaching him not just as his jonin but before that as family.
>>47670778Pull out the image of something many people in Konoha loathe. This won't backfire on Sai not one bit. WTF Kakashi although he is a shit sensei in the show as well.
>>47670927>Kakashi although he is a shit sensei
>>47670921Truly a great man.
suddenlty feathers start falling from the sky....
Fear is a fabulous weapon, he wields it well, however not well enough as he has simply enraged his foe.
>>47670974Fear causes a flight or fight response, and Naruto ain't running.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOvuKyTDi_IMeanwhile, the fox hasn’t stopped it’s enraged assault, Naruto only barely managing to dodge the strikes of the beast’s tail and claws. Nori is still in the back of the booth, muttering to herself….Eventually the two of them land on the beast’s back, still exchanging blows. The melee continues, with Naruto having to dodge underneath the fox at several points.As Sai chases him, you see it- Naruto has left a clone on the fox’s back. As Sai returns, seemingly losing track of Naruto for just a moment. The clone choses this time to make it’s move, lunging towards Sai. He turns, quickly engaging it, and eventually dispatching it. However…Naruto is underneath them, charging up that same attack from before. You hear him yell- echoing throughout the arena.“RASENGAN!”He flies upward, the spinning ball burrowing through the ink monstrosity. He surfaces just underneath Sai’s feet- who tries to jump away and block…. But is isn’t entirely successful.The attack clips him, and you see him go spiraling down into another one of the Arena’s walls.The giant ink monster begins to melt, and Naruto lands, panting.You also see Sai, struggling to get to his feet. As he does so, Naruto readies himself once again-Only for Sai to speak. “I give up. Summoning that thing took most of my chakra. I’m sorry, Naruto.”Immediately the proctor appears-Naruto Uzuamki wins by way of forfeit! The crowd, now worked up, erupts in applause.You….1. Need to confer with Danzo2. Check on Nori3. Talk to Hinata.Choose only one.
>>47671069>2. Check on NoriWe can talk to Danzo about what we saw later, but Nori is here right now.
>>47671069>2. Check on Nori
>>47671069Check on Nori, duh
>>47671069>1. Need to confer with DanzoYou said seen it himself, you know what that thing is, spill.
>>47671069>2. Check on NoriAnything that can scare HER is some serious shit.
>>47671069>2. Check on NoriSlap her!Get yourself together, bitch!You're a goddamn princess, now act like one before you embarrass me!
Being a good friend.Writing.
You run over to Nori, concerned.“Hey, it’s over! It’s ok, your brother won!” you say, trying to snap her out of it.“...huh? He won?” Nori asks quietly.“Yeah, he took out that big ink monster- Sai gave up after that.”“I see….” she murmurs.Suddenly, she stands, smacking her face with both hands.“Snap out of it Nori! You can’t be afraid of him! Brother wasn’t afraid!” she chants, smacking her own face a few more times, for good measure.Finally, she sighs.“Sorry about that, Tsuki. I got a little worked up. I’ll be alright.” Nori says- although she still looks rather concerned.You…1. Let the subject drop2. Ask about her brother’s technique3. Ask about the monster
>>47671275>3. Ask about the monster
>>47671275>1. Let the subject dropfor now......>2. Ask about her brother’s technique
>>47671275>1. Let the subject dropAsk Danzo about it later.
>>47671275>2. Ask about her brother’s technique
>>47671275>1. Let the subject drop>2. Ask about her brother’s technique
>>476712751. Let the subject dropShe probably doesn't want to talk about it.
>>47671275>1. Let the subject dropJoke with her a bit."Are you sure you're okay? I can give you a few smacks myself if you need it."
>>47671354Yeah let's do that.
You decide to change the subject- get her mind off of… whatever that was.“So, your brother used this jutsu- it was this whirling ball of chakra! It totally tore through everything! Do you know what it was?” You ask, trying to be emphatic about the topic change.“Huh? Oh, that was probably the rasengan, from how you described it. Dad developed when he was younger- took him nearly three years to develop it. Although, I’m not surprised he taught it to Naruto….” Nori says, looking a bit dejected.“Hey! Cheer up! Need me to smack you around some? I’ve got a quite the slap, as you know! Ohohohoho!~” you say, poking Nori’s cheek & laughing.Nori just smiles.“Never change, princess.”Meanwhile, it seems one of the proctors is making an announcement.“There will be a brief intermission while the contestants recover. Please use this time as you wish. We will reconvene in one hour.”Seems like you have some time to kill.How you will kill the time?1. Walk with Hinata back to Hiashi and the Hyuga- they’ll want her back for the finals.2. Spend more time with Nori3. Chat up Danzo about the things you just saw4. Do something else (What?)
>>47671475>1. Walk with Hinata back to Hiashi and the Hyuga- they’ll want her back for the finals.

>>476714751. Walk with Hinata back to Hiashi and the Hyuga- they’ll want her back for the finals.Can we get some snacks for Danzo and us as well when we head back?

We need to hang out with Nori more
Truely Tsuki's best friend
>>47671700Y U DO DISI love you
>>47671700Dogzo, former leader of the disbanded ROOF.
>>47671772Bark with me if you're my dog.
>>47671700>Checking those digits and a hearty kek for you
>>47671772We've come to disband ROOF You're barking up the wrong tree.
The three of you gather up by the door- it’s snack time!As you walk towards the concession area, the three of you share a bit of small talk. It’s mostly Nori and Hinata going back and forth about the finals- Nori is of course convinced her brother will win, while Hinata keeps insisting that she not count Neji out. You just laugh- partially because you aren’t really sure which one will win.Eventually you get to the concessions, and you order your friends all some takoyaki. The vendor happily complies, and within a few minutes you have yourself four orders of Takoyaki. At this point, the three of you split- Nori heads back up towards the Hokage booth, while you and Hinata walk over to where the Hyuga were sitting before.Seems like many have left for various reasons, although you’re sure they’ll be back. Hiashi is still here, though, so you and Hinata walk over to him. He greets the two of you- rather cheerfully. You exchange some pleasantries, and he thanks you for bringing Hinata back before the finals. He seems confident that Neji will win the finals- maybe they have something up their sleeve? Hinata’s a sweetheart, but is Neji is anything to go by, you aren’t sure what they might have planned.As people come piling back in, you say your goodbyes, heading back up towards your booth. Upon entering, you present Danzo with the Takoyaki.“Ah, thank you, Tsuki-dono. With everything that’s been going on, I’d forgotten that we haven’t had a proper meal.” he says, happily accepting the snack.While he eats, you can barely restrain your curiosity.“So… what was that thing? Nori was absolutely terrified of it, and Naruto certainly didn’t seem very happy to see it, either.”He finishes chewing, then begins to speak.
>>47671874Redline A fucking awesome movie.
>>47671874I don't know. I just like the GIF.
>>47671889>Redline. A fucking awesome movie.
“That, Tsuki-dono, was a rather faithful rendition of Kurama, the Nine-Tailed Fox; one of the Tailed Beasts, giant monsters of living chakra.” he says before popping another takoyaki ball into his mouth. “But why would they be so afraid of it?” you ask. “Certainly they’ve never seen such a thing before…”“Maybe not physically. Their mother, Kushina, is the jinchuuriki, or sacrificial vessel, of the Nine-Tails. Who knows how that has affected them?” Danzo says, finishing his snack.Maybe that’s why Kushina is so scary….? It’s a distinct possibility.You..1. Ask more about tailed beasts2. Ask more about Kurama, specifically.3. Ask about the upcoming final match.4. Let Danzo enjoy his food, and wait for the finals.
>>47671923>4. Let Danzo enjoy his food, and wait for the finals.
>>47671923>1. Ask more about tailed beasts
>>47671923>4. Let Danzo enjoy his food, and wait for the finals
>>47671923> Tailed beasts and KuramaKids totally have tiny tailed-beast chakra in em, callin' it now
>>47671923>KuramaThey know his name? HAX. HAX I say Wargle!> 1. Ask more about tailed beasts
>>476719231. Ask more about tailed beasts
>>47671923>1. Ask more about tailed beasts>Are there other Jinchuuriki? Why would anyone willingly do that? Does that have something to do with why Nori got all weird and red chakra-y during the bell test when I insinuated Sensei did things while we were genjutsu'd?
>>47671923>1. Ask more about tailed beastsSo Nori's mom is a fox, got it.....Wait...
>>47671944Well the sand knows that the one tail is called Shukaku.
>>47671968Yeah and he's the only one in canon with a name more widely known than the bijuu and their jinchuuriki.
>>47671994>in canonTheres your response
>>47671951Kurama literally yells his name at you if you talk to him for than like, five minutes. He isn't exactly subtle. I just don't think Kishimoto wanted to humanize Kurama by giving him a name until later in the series- but it makes no sense for the people who are owning him as a living weapon not to know his name.That's my thoughts, anyway. It's a small thing.
>>47672037It's probably just weird to see since I used it so recently as a ploy point
>>476719234. Let Danzo enjoy his food, and wait for the finals.
>>47672037Eh, I understand where you're coming from.I always interpreted him, and most of the others, as being too prideful and full of old hurt and hate to give out their names freely.Being caged as they are it's one of the very few things that they can control and that's something people cling too./le shrugs
So Stuff to beat Neji: 1 train getting blocked chacra points back "online"2 aquire immaterial clones that have a chacra network, and use them to blur with your own3 find a way to neutralize the chackra spikies he will put in you4 keep to ranged combat focusing on atacks on his blind spot to force him to burn through his chacra5 Use his arrogance against him6 impare his movementsstuff like thatalso pic incase it was too late for anyone to notice last thread, tried to make her look actually like a 12 year old
>>47672179c'mon their worse mistakes to be mad
>>47672197True.They really are a diamond dozen.
>>47672082Don't forget, Danzo knows a bunch of shit normal people shouldn't. So even if Kurama's name is known to very few people, he's one of those people.
Letting Danzo eat his food wins out by 1 vote. Writing.
>>47672147Nice pic. I still recommend the Meteor Hammer (metal ball on string) especially if we/dad can design a way of allowing Chakra to be fused with and expelled from the ball at designated points. This would allow the user to direct the ball mid flight unexpectedly. Get it into an arc that takes it into the blindspot and redirect to contact with blindspot point.
>>47672231still have to watch out for http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Eight_Trigrams_Palms_Revolving_Heaven
>>47672147huh, the darker skin actually looks nice with the hair color, sweet. also, remember that attack from underground are obscured from the byakugan so, some way to use hat would be cool... reactive chakra caltrops that hide in the earth?
What's Hinata's chakra element? If it's water or earth we could go with "figure out the exact muddiness that's most difficult to use gentle fist in, teach hinata how to produce that and then put shitloads of training into fighting in that mud so she can turn the battleground into one she's way more suited to fighting in"
>>47672250I think chakra threads are the answar for us atleast, tangle up in them then charge them with Fire to burn, electric to taze, or Stellar to slive to pieces.
>>47672321According to Narutopedia she has Fire and Lightning.
>>47672321>What's Hinata's chakra element?I think fire.
You can always ask about the tailed beasts later- you decide to let Danzo eat his food.Eventually, the crowd begins to fill back in, still buzzing with excitement from the last match, no doubt.You take a moment to scan the crowd- you can see most of your classmates from the academy here. Seems like their sensei all gave them they day off to watch.You even see Itachi-sensei, sitting with Sasuke.They both look happy.You have one last choice to make before the last match begins-You…1. Will focus on observing the fight2. Will cheer for Neji3. Will cheer for Naruto4. Will attempt to distract Neji in some way
>>47672339>>47672341Alas, so much for creating ideal terrain.
>>47672321I just wanna see Hinata mud wrestle so works for me. That and because if he spins, he'll sink and be vulnerable. Hinata can learn Mud Clones, So binding Methords and maybe Mud Bullet.
>>47672355>1. Will focus on observing the fight
>>47672321Fire. It's the Land of Fire, most people have fire, something something burninate.>>47672339> Read the wikiThank you.>1. Will focus on observing the fight
>>47672355>4. Will attempt to distract Neji in some wayJesus Christ every addition to recaptcha is more time consuming to deal with than the last.
>>47672355>1. Will focus on observing the fight>2. Will cheer for Neji (Subtly)If he's loosing cheers for him some so that he pulls all the stops and we can see his full bag of tricks
>>47672393>>47672355Backing. Best option for studying our enemy. Also keeps him thirsty.
>>47672355>>47672393I like this idea, If Neji is in trouble look down on him from behind our fan giving that look of "come on I know you can do better". Get him to show us his Ulti.
>>47672355>1. Will focus on observing the fightDon't cheer. We can't play favorites yet.
>>47672355>>47672418Do it, just make sure its subtle/deniable
>>47672393Sure, I'll back this.
Focusing on the fight, whilst judging NejiWriting.
>>47672355>>47672393Subtle looking, don't be unrefined
>>476723551. Will focus on observing the fightNot sure Neji will notice us if he's focusing on the fight.
So is this our Princesses Theme?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zAMJXZnJoYor is it this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSAp991JIVsOr even?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRivqBxbHRs
>>47672790So are you saying Tsuki should gather an Elite and highly loyal set of accomplices and form the new ROOT. Her followers crazy loyal and get gadgets from dad for that loyalty? ROOT rises to the surface.
>>47672790Clearly it is third one, out of those.
>>47672790That first one gives me an idea, there are chakra threads, but what about chakra cloth? Weaving the threads into clothing and puppets to create regenerating, shapeshifting, almost unbreakable puppets. Even the cloth clones are possible, and the mind-control strings could definitely be done with a combination of chakra strings and genjutsu...
>>47672853We can work with it for sure likely.
>>47672790https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpbbuaIA3Ds>>47672822the secret base will be a fort made of out of money
You opt to focus on the fight, but will judge Neji work further weaknesses.“Everyone, please return to your seats! The final match will begin shortly!” you hear one of the proctors shout.Finally.Eventually, Naruto and Neji walk out- the wounds from their previous bouts seem to have been healed. They stop in the center of the arena- still damaged from the Ink-Kurama- and raise their hands to the onlooking crowd, to a chorus of cheers.A proctor appears, and begins his announcement.Chunin Exam Final Match! Naruto Uzumaki!VS!Neji Hyuga!The two boys bow towards one another- then immediately jump back to the far side of the arena.Begin!The proctor returns to his booth with a *poof*- and the match begins.
Naruto immediately starts performing the shadow clone technique again- this time, producing 6 clones.More than before?“He was worried about making the clones more durable before, to counter the ink lions. Now that this isn’t the case, I’d suspect this is probably his current limit.” Danzo says, returning to analysis mode.Neji activates his Byakugan in response- although you’re sure he won’t be able to tell them apart; that is one of the shadow clone technique biggest strengths. All seven Narutos run at Neji, who immediately drops into his Gentle Fist stance.“Eight Trigrams! 32 Palms!”As the Narutos approach, they’re taken out in sequence, easily.“You know that isn’t going to work, Naruto.” you hear Neji say.“I know. Just making sure you’re awake, you know?” He says, smiling.Naruto produces his three-pointed kunai, and they exchange blows for a while- with Neji always getting in a blow or two at the end of it. The Byakugan really is a terror in close combat…
Backing off slightly, Naruto again makes the symbols for the Shadow Clone technique. The clones form up around Neji, and quickly begin to run in a large circle around him.Neji waits patiently- you can see he’s unfazed. The Narutos continue to run in the circle, until Neji finally goes to swing at one. In response, they all jump away simultaneously, forming a far ring. Naruto throws up a different set of hand symbols this time-“Wind Release! Air Bullets!”Pressurized spheres of air appear around one of the Narutos- the one you assume to be real. They follow him as he runs- the illusion begins again. Seven bullets for seven Narutos. In one fluid motion, they all dart towards Neji! Seven Bullets of Air, followed closely by the clones. Surely he’ll use it….“Eight Trigrams! Palms Revolving Heaven!”Neji spins, again becoming a whirling cyclone of chakra. The bullets of air collide with it- seemingly not doing much damage. Shortly afterward, six Narutos follow up, kunai outstretched.Wait. Six?
>>47672359>>47672321Well, she can probably still learn earth jutsu right? It just won't be as awesome
>>47673120One clone from underground in-between rounds?
>>47673191It takes a few years before somebody can learn a secondary element. It's tough stuff to learn something other than your natural affinity.
Welp Neji is about to get an uppercut, quick make a bet with Danzo
>>47672993>three-pointed kunaiHiraishin KagebunshinGG Neji
>>47673213well... she knows fire right, can she just shove a bunch of fire chakra into the dirt with a stomp and then have it spurt up in a flame geyser under her target?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU7zEJMZIVYSure enough, as Neji is preoccupied with deflecting the six clones with his Revolving Heaven Technique, you see the seventh and true Naruto a ways off- preparing another technique.“Wind Release! Gale Palm!” he shouts- producing another strong torrent of air, just like in his fight with Sai. Neji keeps whirling- the gale collides with him just as the final clone is dispatched. It hits him dead on- and he goes careening towards the far wall. You don’t hear him hit it, but you see it. Ouch.He needs to fight harder! If he constantly stays on the defense, he’s going to lose!As Neji gets back up, scuffed and bruised, you cut him a deep glare, while keeping your frown hidden behind your fan. Very ladylike. You know he can see it with those eyes of his- he’d better.Without giving him any time to rest, another six Narutos are upon him! They’re definitely trying to keep him boxed in for another-“Wind Release! Gale Palm!” Naruto yells again, from almost underneath you.Neji, though, was ready this time. He dispatches the clones in short order, and prepares an attack of his own. “Eight Trigrams! Vacuum Strike!”As the torrent of air hits him, you see him splitting it- with his fists! He seems to be using his palm strikes to emit a short burst of force, enough to deflect the attack.As Naruto holds the Jutsu, you see Neji progressing steadily up, through the attack, as if he was moving against the flow of a mighty river. It’s mesmerizing, almost like a dance.As he does so, his eyes meet yours; just for a moment.You find yourself blushing, despite yourself.
also since we were posting music that might fit Tsuki:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUpkaXA80tA
>>47673242>As he does so, his eyes meet yours; just for a moment.LEWD!
>>47673240She could but that wouldn't help with a particular sort of win, which is tricks to help win still mostly with gentle fist. Or at the very least I don't see any way to use fire or lightning to provide favorable terrain.
>>47673242>>47673242>As he does so, his eyes meet yours; just for a moment.>You find yourself blushing, despite yourself.Did we just get turned on? Did we just turn him on?
>>47673291I doubt it. People bush when they're surprised as well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqXUm2YS-mM“Wind Release! Gale Palm!”Again, Naruto fires off a column of wind- Neji, however, continues to progress using his technique.He seems to have found a way to counter it!However, as he does so, you hear him grunt in pain- you see kunai embedded in his palms- and slices around his arms!You see Naruto- as he’s channelling the technique, his clones are throwing projectiles into the wind tunnel. Boosted by the strength of the gale, it seems like Neji cannot deflect them as easily.You look back to Naruto- who’s now running straight at Neji, along with his clones!Neji again drops into his stance-“Eight Trigrams! Palms Revolving Heaven!”Close after clones throws itself upon the whirling chakra-“RASENGAN!” You hear Naruto yell as he charges. Your eyes dart back to him to see that same whirling sphere of chakra from before, heading straight at Neji!He tries to adjust, to deflect the attack, but between his wounds and dispatching the clones, he’s simply too slow. He does manage to deflect it, but not completely. Instead of the chest, where Naruto was aiming, it catches Neji in the shoulder.You hear him scream out in pain as the attack connects- warping and twisting the joint. He’s eventually blown back, rolling on the floor. His right shoulder is a bloody mess- his arm bent at an unnatural angle.He struggles to his feet- only to land on his knees. You’re surprised he’s conscious.But not only is he conscious- he’s looking right at you, as Naruto approaches.You…1. Stay silent.2. Cry out3. Give him the “thumbs down”4. Glare behind your fan5. Something else (What?)
>>47673463>1. Stay silent.>5. Something else (What?)Nod.Leave the interpretation up to him.Either he'll think we approved of his performance or the outcome.
>>47673463>5. Something else (What?)Disappointed sigh.
>>47673463>4. Glare behind your fanSend thoughts of disappointment towards him.
>>47673463I'm torn between> Thumbs downor> GlareWhat should we do? I want him to get up, damnit
>>47673463>1. Stay silent.
>>47673463Can we pull a Nyoko-Anzai deal?>2. Cry out
>>47673463>5. Something else (What?)stare at him impasively from behind the fan, look down upon him like the moon.
>>47673495Oh, this a good one, let's do this.
>>47673463>1. Stay silent.But keep eye contact.
>>47673463>5. Something else (What?)shrug
>>47673463>4. Glare behind your fan
>>47673495>>47673463This. We expected more of you Neji.
>>476734631. Stay silent.
1. with a small sigh and eye contactWriting.
>>47673463>1. Stay silent
>>47672339If you check out Narutos Page you can tell that the chakra natures on the wiki are pretty much bullshit.also if you look at the stats you will see that Genin Neji is about as good as 4th ninja war Hinata...
>>47673656Hinata wasn't popular because of her talent as a ninja
>>47673656They're not bullshit, Naruto has all the natures after getting his god powerup
>>47673656Why because he has three Kekkai Genkai's? You don't know why he has them?>"Via Six Paths Senjutsu, Naruto can utilize all five nature transformations, as well as Yin–Yang Release. He can make perfect use of the latter to revitalise life-forces, heal whomever he touches, and restore missing organs. With chakra from the tailed beasts, Naruto can also use the kekkei genkai of Shukaku's Magnet Release, Son Gokū's Lava Release, and Kokuō's Boil Release."And Start of Shippuden Hinata being about as good as sound invasion - beginning of timeskip Neji is not really surprising considering they are both at Chunin level.
>>47673703Thats not best Hyuga?
>>47673760Thats not Hanabi either? Though Ohohohohoooh my Neji you beast of a man you
Post your Neji here
You maintain eye contact, and sigh. You let him see it- maybe he’ll try harder, next time. He was doing so well, too.He tries to stand again, succeeding this time. Naruto approaches him…“It’s over, Neji. Forfeit.” Naruto says, staying cautious at a distance.“N-no. I can still fight. I’m not going to lose…” Neji says, wavering.“No, Neji. It’s done. You did fine.” Naruto says, trying to comfort his teammate.“N-no. I had… had almost proven.. myself……”Neji collapses.The proctor appears, to announce the end of the match.“Victory goes to Naruto Uzumaki!”The crowd erupts into cheers!Looking around, though, you can see Hiashi Hyuga, frowning in the crowd.You wonder to yourself what exactly he meant by “proving himself….”
I'm on mobile so fuck tagging but>nodWe give him permission to go all out and fuck him up, anything less is an insult
>>47673760Well, that's elevated Neji in my eyes
Ok we need to be nice to Neji next time we see him, we may be helping Hinata to beat him but he really tried here to prove himself the the Main family and possibly us. Be polite, check to make sure he aint to fucked up. Don't wound his pride though.
>>47673789I don't remember him being that infatuated
aaaaaand that's the end of thread, gentlemen.No thread this weekend, as I'm moving.MIGHT have a thread on thursday, if I feel up to it. If not, we shall resume on monday with a big 'ol post chunin exam thread!@WargleQM for prose and poetry Post thread begins now!
>>47673760Wow +1 point for Neji I guess
>>47673813thanks for runningTsuki should take up yogaYOGA FLAME
>>47673810We should ask him what he meant next time we see him.
>>47673813Alright.So, is a Stellar Release version of either Chidori or Rasengan possible?And thanks for running!>>47673826YOGA FIRE
Hmm. Well, maybe we should visit him, then. Seems pretty down about the whole dealio.
>>47673760Neji is confirmed hung in canon? Now we really have no choice. Sorry lee lovers, and shika-shippers. Neji-needers are the winners.
>>47673813Was Neji's last bolster there at the end partially because of us?Did Danzo mention anything in all of this?
I think Neji deserves a little praise for his efforts.
>>47673813Thanks for running mate.
>>47673811He didn't necessarily mean to you.
>>47673760All Aboard Neji's meat TrainThanks for running Wargle see you next time
>>47673838Probably, but it would be heavier.
So that's how you baet neji.To bad Hinata won't be able to pull that of.>What do?
Neji still a shit
>>47673865I'd suggest luring him into a field of placed tags and just blowing the fucker up while he spins, the few tags he'd pull out the ground would get trapped in the spin with him and boom, job done.
>>47673841Since we had seen most of the techniques used before, he didn't have much to say.
>>47673760Hello good lookin
>>47673813What are the stats that Tsuki will have an easier time leveling up past 3.0 and which are the ones she'd have a harder time with?
Because Neji is a cute...once we pull that stick out his butt and firmly place our heel
Such a fun loving boy
I suggest when we train next is to improve our strengths; hand seals and our brain.
>>47673913The fuck is that from?
>>47673919Rock Lee got a SD spin off show
>>47673760Eight Trigrams! 64 Thrusts! >>47673913Kek.
>>47673838Rasengan is chakra neutral, but it wouldn't interact very well with stellar chakra. Chidori could possibly be blended with Stellar chakra, but you don't have a dojutsu, so using chidori would be more difficult for tsuki
>>47673944>but you don't have a dojutsu,YETBut that's interesting.Could Danzo teach or get someone to teach Chidori to Tsuki?
>>47673951We already gonna be learning Puppets anon and Danzo will aquire us a....teacher shall we say from whom knows where but don't over do it
So is Boruto quest dead of what?
>>47673957Well it is a possibility, but some poeple where against it, well see once we actually vote on it.
>>47673957We gotta train up stuff we already now, not puppets.We won't get that good unless we focus solely on it for like 6 months.>>47673962I think it's just on hiatus.
I honestly forgot how amusing Neji is
>>47673962On hiatus, probably
>>47673962It's not the first time that Mini has dropped off the face of the Earth. Give it some time, and he should hopefully come back.He can't leave us with that cliffhanger damnit.
>>47673841He was trying to show off a little- he thought he had it.
>>47673944>>47673951just have the shadow clone do the move
>>47673957I'm still not sure why people are so eager to use puppets.
>>47673967I know you wen't but ill never get to post this
>>47673988so getting him to underestimate his opponentis at lest a good start, shouldn't be to difficult for hinata.
>>47673840But the tough love sex between Tsuki and Shika would be awesome! They would try to out do each other. Kinky sex jutsus, shadow puppets, and balls of fire.
By the way all of these>>47674011>>47673905>>47673913come from "Rock Lee and His Ninja Pals", involves funny shit, cross dressing Neji, naruto as a hairdryer fairy and much more. I do recommend for a chuckle
>>47674011I love me some Sasori
>>47673889STR will be her hardest stat to level. Most other things are learned, and will get progessively more difficult as stats increase.
>>47674033Shika ain't got staminaevery fight "I'm at my limit! I better think of something!"
>>47674122What will be the easiest to level?Ninjutsu?
>>47674131Ninjutsu, INT, Hand Seals/Chakra ControlNo particular order.
>>47674041...Anon what the hell
>>47674172>INT is gonna be easy to levelHappy about this
>>47674179Goddammit I was drinking water.
>>47674172What's one cool ninjutsu that Tsuki could learn from Danzo or a friend/subordinate of Danzo?What is one cool thing that Tsuki could be able to do with her release? Aside from Godzilla breath, that is.
>>47674208>What is one cool thing that Tsuki could be able to do with her release? Aside from Godzilla breath, that is.Starfire drill?The drill that pierces the heavens
>>47674208Danzo knows a lot of basic jutsu, among others taught by Tobirama. Hard to say just one thing.Be careful around Gaara.
>>47674230Kamina you ded mate!
>>47674262>Be careful around Gaara.'Cause we'll turn him to glass?
>>47674263Quick, use Ninshu!
>>47674273It totally won't backfire at all!
>>47674262Fuck..we'd pretty much kill him wouldn't we!
>>47674262Could Tsuki have a move called Stellar Release: Kiss of Death?And it's just https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23aj7dbFyJw
>>47674301No, he doesn't know ftgI didn't even give Naruto ftg, calm down
>>47674327a man can dream....
>>47674299Pretty sure I said yes last threadTotally viable
>>47674352I forgot.And awesome.
>>47674352Will Tsuki's dad have musicians hired to play intro music for his daughter each time she enters a match? And music for each time she wins?
We really need to practice a few Lightning techniques, so that our fore shifts to wind release. We can then switch it up to fire and have their own counters boost our attack
>>47674403I was hoping to over-play the Rich Bitch personna leading up to the single elimination rounds. Get people confident that she's not a threat then rip our first opponent a new one in front of the others.
>>47674456Maybe. That would be fun.I kinda want there to be a rival that we end up just brawling with, like during Ino and Sakura's fight.And hopefully we win. Maybe use the Kiss of Death if we're pissed off enough.
>>47674403Would be fun, but you'd need to decide on a theme
>>47674482>Kiss of Death on a fellow studentAre you trying to kill them?
>>47674484Something like the second half of the Godzilla theme, I think.When the violins/cellos really kick in.Militaristic, elegant and imposing, all at once.Maybe that mixed with a bit of Twisted Nerve.
>>47674509I think if Gaara specifically tries to kill one of our friends she might just execute the poor guy if she faces him.
>>47674509I'm imagining us doing a brawl like in the Ino and Sakura fight with an opponent we just grew to absolutely hate, or that really pissed Tsuki off somehow, over the course of the exam.And then we pull her up and use Kiss of Death.
>>47674521>Implying Tsuki would be able to beat Gaara
>>47674546and they explode, and die violently.Unless that's what you want, anon.
>>47674552If our bloodline ainst reaveal We actually have a very good chance
>>47674554If we hate them enough, then yes.Otherwise I'm good with just the brawl.
>>47674570I dunno I kinda like the idea if it's someone we hate that much the moment the match starts we just drop our Stellar chakra nade on them, leaving a crater/ashes and just walk away. No words, no frills just straight up cold blooded murder.
>>47674586Kiss of Death, so we can look 'em in the eyes while it happens.
>>47674552Stellar release seems like it would be a very bad matchup for him, especially as a surprise. If we knew how dangerous he was I could certainly see going straight for a killshot he wasn't expecting (medium range Meteor Shot accepting doing some damage to ourselves to give him less time to react perhaps?) at the very start just to save our own skin.
>>47674484maybehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-49noOAFsG8orhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZIitGVsFUQorhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDvJfVLeEn0orhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_PaSdSc2WUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38zmdwd5K3Eeh, my music taste dosn't quite fit
>>47674710Just bomb him with attacks forcing him to hit in the sand sphere, he'll be over confident in there then just drop and overcharged Metior Shot onto his head, boom job done, gaara's top half is now gone and the sand turned into gore tinted glass.
>>47674771don't know why but that seems like something our dad might choose
>>47674771>>47674782This is what our dad listens to while dancing and sliding around his lab building death machines by himself
>>47674782Maybe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6qAIaqK3_Q?Specifically starting around 0:47
I don't really feel confident in Tsuki's ability to keep up with Gaara once he kicks into high gear. We've got powerful moves, sure, but our stat's aren't that good in the physical department. Rock Lee has a speed of 4, which is twice as fast as Tsuki, and he was barely able to get past his defenses.We don't even know Body Flicker yet. Still, I guess if we use basic fire jutsu to lead him into a stellar attack, then maybe we could do some damage. After that though, we're out of tricks.
>>47674755If we gave any indication how dangerous to him it was i think he might go straight to trying to kill us, none of that "sit around waiting for your enemy to exhaust themselves in your 'perfect defense.'" That's why I'd suggest starting off with a killing blow.
>>47674875We've got like 6 months until the Exams start again.We can train.
We should learn some Lightning Release moves as that one anon has said. We have also said it was our affinity. Also come on some one tries using wind against Tsuki and then fuck you fireball bitch!!!
>>47674878Or fuse his"shield" into glass.
>>47674958Is exactly what I think would kick him off into "straight up try to kill us mode."
>>47674949That would be good.I also like this Anon's idea: >>47674456Where we just go over the top with a Rich Bitch persona, getting people to underestimate us.
>>47674969He coats himself in sand, too. Imagine melting that.
>>47673944Wasn't there a thing where we could pool Stellar chakra in different parts of the body for different effects? What happens if we drop it in our eyes?
>>47676467dunno, best case eye beams, worst case eyes pop out.
>>47676482>Go into the Chunin exams with fucking eye lasers>MOVE OVER SASUKE>OUT THE WAY HINATA>I'VE GOT MOTHERFUCKING EYE BEAMS>SUCK MY METAPHORICAL DICK
We need to start flirting with Neji and Naruto. Might make for tension in their team, and then Hinata can swoop in with one of the strategies we've been brainstorming if it knocks Neji off his game.
>>47676639While a win is a win, i'd prefere she baet him in her own power, npt in a fair fight but on her own at least.
>>47676540>Neji: My eyes can see everything within two miles of me.>Sasuke: My eyes can trap people in an illusion at a glance and set fires that won't go out until there's nothing to burn.>Tsuki: MY EYES CAN SHOOT FUCKING LASERS!>Sauce and Neji: [Jealousy Intensifies]You all know that eye lasers are the coveted prize at the end of the Uchiha/Byakugan Dojutsu Arms Race
