This is Boruto Quest, a quest set in the universe of Naruto. It is during the generation of Naruto's son after everyone has graduated from their Genin exam. I haven't kept up with the series beyond the end of the original one, so this one is intended to recapture the feel of that time of Naruto. I will not be incorporating the main show or the Boruto movie's plot into the quest, although some recognizable characters will be present. You play as a 13 year old Chunin named Takeshi. You have been assigned a Jounin squad leader named Hanto, and your two squadmates are Kichiro, a young delinquent, and Ai, a strange social outcast of a girl. You are of average skill in most aspects, although your sharp intelligence, and your jack of all trades skill set have brought you far. You're a Chunin of notable talent for your age. Currently you're training to overcome a powerful rival named Shozuku, the leader of a cult that's been terrorizing the shinobi nations.At the moment, you're waiting for a new teacher to help you prepare.

After Kichiro's emotional declaration of rivalry, you finish your walk home. All things considered it was a pretty good day, and tomorrow will give you the chance to master some new jutsu hopefully. When you arrive home, your brother is away. Looking into the fridge you find some leftovers to eat, since all you had earlier was sweets. After a real meal, you flip through the new issues of a new manga that you had ordered. The premise is pretty interesting, but you're not sure if it'll be able to live up to it. Once you've relaxed a bit you head right to sleep, taking a shower when you wake as well as a brief stretching session. Now that you're fully awake, you get a bite to eat and gather your gear before heading out for the day. On your way out, you notice that your bro is now home, and asleep.Shizune asked you to meet her at the training fields in the early morning, so you figure you should head there right away before anything else. You follow a shortcut that you've come to memorize over time, and soon enough you arrive. However, it turns out that you're the only one here for the moment.The weather is chilly, but your spandex suit and jacket are keeping you pretty warm. Not wearing sandals helps, too. You should probably do something light to kill a little time while you wait for Shizune. It shouldn't be too much longer. >A. Practice the Great Fireball Jutsu >B.

You decide that it'd be best to start the day with a good taijutsu warm up. Since you already stretched at home, you begin with a few laps around the training field to get your blood pumping. After a short while you start to mix in punches and kicks, and your footwork shifts from running into a smoother, floating pace.Using the training weights has taught to be more conservative with your movements, and be more efficient with your fighting style. If you tried to do explosive motions, you'd tire out quicker than usual. Of course, the payoff from removing the weights will make the opposite true as well. Once your heart rate is significantly accelerated from punches and kicks, you begin to incorporate some dodging patterns. Using your upper body in tandem with your feet, you dip, duck, dodge and dive against imaginary targets.It's stamina consuming to do so, but getting used to the movements is important for your long term training.A bit after you stop for a break, there's a rumbling in the distance. Shizune enters the field, with Ton-Ton trotting along near her. He's so heavy that the ground is reverberating with each step, but he plops down next to a tree in the shade. He huffs deeply, seemingly satisfied with the new location.You grin and wave. "Good morning, sensei!" She rubs the back of her head, sheepishly. "Morning. Sorry I'm late, it took me a little longer than I expected to get Ton-Ton down here with me."She grins, looking out at the field. "I saw you doing some taijutsu. What kind of ninja are you anyway, Takeshi? From the tournament I saw you use all kinds of different stuff, but since you're asking me to train I figured you wanted some medical advise. But here you're also doing physical training.">A. I try to stay as balanced as I can in everything>B. I just learn whatever feels useful to me, at the time.

>>2087051I still would like that write-in added in somehow. It's not like it's all that different from the winning vote.
"I try to stay as balanced as I can with everything. Getting too used to a single set of tricks makes you predictable, and that's never a good thing to be when you're a ninja." Shizune nods. "Well, you're not wrong there. You'll probably find something you favor over everything else at some point, but as long as you maintain a broad arsenal it should be fine. Lots of ninja have become great by mastering many different jutsu, as opposed to few powerful ones. But that's enough lecturing, I'm ready if you are!"You nod. "Yeah! I was wanting to tell you that there are a few jutsu I know in advance somewhat. I could still work on the Chakra Scalpel and Diagnosis Pulse Jutsu."She looks off, and hums. "Alright. I can think of a few things to show you, then..">A. Master Chakra Scalpel>B. Master Diagnosis Pulse>C. Learn more about physical pressure points>D. Improve your Healing Jutsu

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRW-docvWxAThe training for the day with Shizune is nothing less than what you expected. She's very thoroughly rooted in the basics as a shinobi, and has a broad knowledge of many types of skills. Her time spent with Tsunade as an assistant is reflected in her skill with medical jutsu, and she's easily able to help guide your training with chakra control.Using a captured fish from the nearby pond, she teaches you to perfectly maintain the razor cut of the scalpel. This time you focus on holding the surgical precision, even in the midst of combat.After finishing with the fishes, she preforms the chakra scalpel as well and you practice engaging with it. When both parties are using the technique, the blades cancel out in close contact thankfully.Shizune is capable of extending the length and width of her blades at will, and easily overcomes your taijutsu ability by using a longer, thinner blade. Learning under duress like this ensures that you'll be able to preform the technique against a live foe. Getting past their attacks and disabling someone with this move will be a potential finisher.After words, after earning some internal cuts and scratches, Shizune helps you to better understand your Healing jutsu. The lesson of the day seems to be chakra control, and you focus entirely on being able to heal your wounds while staying in motion. Being able to repair yourself even while retreating should make things less troublesome when you get injured.It wasn't easy work, but it was consistent and well thought out. Shizune's lessons will benefit you greatly."Thanks for this!" you say with a smile. "I think you might actually be pretty well suited to teaching. Most people who try to show me stuff don't really line up with my skill set, but today was great."She clasps her hands, and chuckles. "I'm glad I could help. I know how dangerous your missions have been lately, so hopefully this will help everyone. I gotta get back and start on some work now. Stop by again if you wanted to set up another training session soon. Bye!"Shizune and Ton-Ton head off, and you rest for a short while before eating the lunch you brought. A Tuna salad sandwich, and some peanuts.Afterwards, you think about what to do for the rest of the day.+.5 Chakra ControlImproved Healing and Chakra Scalpel mastered>A.

The trek to the Academy is quick, and you're inside and browsing the shelves in no time at all. As you're searching through the material, a small flash of movement on your peripheral catches you eye. Looking over, the small shaky boy from yesterday is peeking at you from behind the shelves. You smirk and get back to your studies. If he's still here when you finish up, you might go talk to him for a little bit. For now though, what would you like to learn about?>A. A new Genjutsu technique>B. A new Water Ninjutsu>C.

>>2087416>D. Read about Taijutsu techniques
>>2087441That sounds like something you could ask Ten-Ten to develop for future use.

>>2087469He won the second fight at least.Granted that was because Sylvester Stallone was the director of that film, but still.
You sit down and flip through several basic Genjutsu texts over the course of the next half hour. From your choices you decide to study a particularly interesting jutsu that you had looked over before, in favor of something else. The Leaf-Style Willow is a visual genjutsu activated when the user waves their weapon. It will appear as if many copies of their arm wielding the same weapon started to sway in the wind, slashing at the opponent. This can either serve as a distraction or a tool for intimidation. As far as you can tell, it shouldn't be too hard to learn. You crack down on the text and make sure to absorb the information as fully as you can, practicing the hand signs for the technique while you read. It's not really that much more difficult than what you're capable of now with your False Place Jutsu, but it'll be useful in certain situations. As you close the book, the skinny boy from earlier takes a seat on the other side of your table. "Can I see that?""Sure." you say, now that you're done with it. "Are you trying to learn Genjutsu?"The kid nods, and glosses over the title. "I just wanted to read about it. I don't think I could learn any of these just yet."(Learned Leaf-Style Willow. Needs practice)>A. Maybe sometime you could train with me. I know some Genjutsu>B. I'm sure you could learn it if you asked your teachers to help>C.

>>2087491>that was because Sylvester Stallone was the director of that filmAnon, Stallone wrote Rocky. That movie was his baby. And the original ending he wrote is actually MORE of a downer really, with Rocky throwing the fight after deciding he didn't want to be a pro boxer after all. He takes his cut of the money and opens a pet store for Adrian, and they settle down.>>2087527>C. Make sure to master the basics first before you try to do more advanced things
>>2087527>>C. Make sure to master the basics first before you try to do more advanced things
That leaf style willow looks lime it could be developed into a pretty neat vertigo enducing genjutsu.
>>2087527>C. Make sure to master the basics first before you try to do more advanced things
>>2087557I'm not saying the first Rocky and everything that went into it isn't legit.I will say however that 5 of it's 6 sequels are products of Stallone's re-inflated ego after the first did so well.
>>2087527>>A. Maybe sometime you could train with me. I know some Genjutsu>C. Make sure to master the basics first before you try to do more advanced things
>>2087611speaking of illusions, I just thought of a way we could use our genjutsu to add a little extra oomph to our taijutsu.

>>2087641Isn't that basicaly what we just learned?
>>2087659Yes...but sans weapons.We could do a whole bunch of shit actually.I figure stuff like flaring aura, glowing eyes, the ground cracking where we step, and whatnot should be easy to pull off too.It's another neat little trick at least.
"Make sure you master the basics before moving on to more advanced things." you say. He keeps looking down at the book, and slowly nods. "I think I've been starting to get them. The Taijutsu is harder than the Ninjutsu and Genjutsu, for me at least." he says meekly.You grin. "Well, then you know what to work on, right?" He looks up. "Shouldn't I focus on improving my strengths instead?"You rub the back of your head. "Uh, yeah, but don't let your weaknesses become too glaring either. You don't have to be a master fighter, but maybe just try to get in a little better shape so you could take a hit or two. That was my goal when I was your age."He shrugs. "It sounds hard, but I'll think about it. I'm Kosuke, by the way.""I'm Takeshi. A Chunin for the Leaf." He picks up the book and looks at it, hiding behind it slightly. "I remember seeing you win the tournament, back then. Every match people were saying you'd lose, but you kept winning it."As usual, you can't help but cheekily grin. "It was still really hard. Tell you what, I'll train with you sometime if you want. I have to go for now, though. See you later, Kosuke."He waves goodbye as you exit. The sky is overcast, and a light sprinkle of rain is falling. You an see your breath in the air.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pI7Jc-fSQQ8When you walk down the steps of the Academy building, you're greeted by a surprise. Kakashi Hatake is standing at the bottom, awaiting you. His eyes seem as tired as ever. "Afternoon." he says.You stop. "Afternoon. I get the feeling you're not just here to say hi."He shakes his head. "You'd be right. We received a video transmission, a threat from the cultist leader. His claim is that he's about to wipe out an entire city in the Fire Nation. A potential full scale invasion, the brunt of which will be coming from the Water country."
>>2087715Taking a deep breath, you try to relax. Listening to this heavy news gives you no pleasure, but in spite of the fear you feel somewhat excited. If they're going to bring themselves out to the front lines, the Leaf's strongest shinobi could simply wipe them all out.Kakashi continues. "Your squad will be going on a mission to investigate, as part of an advance platoon. It's going to be up to this team to investigate the claims of a weapon of mass destruction, most likely a Tailed Beast contained within an unstable Jinchuriki. Your squad, Mirai's Squad, and Rock Lee's Squad should be plenty of force to puncture through any Jashinist defenses, with reinforcements following behind you. If things get too risky, Naruto has granted me special permission to join the fray, seeing as he has to stay behind in order to ensure Konoha's safety."You nod. "I'm ready. When are we leaving?""Tomorrow." he says. "Village gates, first thing in the morning. Pack light, you'll be arriving to the city fairly quickly."He vanishes in a puff of smoke, and you quietly keep walking down the steps.There's still a few hours left before you should get to sleep.>A. Go visit a friend>B. Get one last training session in by yourself.>C. Go home and try to relax before this important mission.>D. Write-in

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlrXATIVhNkYou head to the training field, and use your last hours to be sure that your new jutsu is fully prepared. As the sun is setting, you use the last bits of light to create a small orb of mist. With your newly improved chakra control from the medical training, producing a small amount like this was fairly easy. Afterwards, you create an even larger orb, this one the size of a soccer ball. It cost a bit more chakra, but the orb could easily intercept a small acid attack and neutralize it. The cost being manageable is a total surprise to you. Excitement starts to build inside of your chest, as you attempt to create the largest field of Acid Neutralization you can. Steadying your hands, the white mist fills the air all around you in roughly a 10 meter radius, enough to convert something the size of a water dragon. The cost of chakra for a field this big was a huge portion.Kneeling down, you breathe slowly. You've broken out in a sweat from the sudden chakra drain. Not to mention, as the light rain sprinkles over you, a soapy foam starts to form on your skin. The white mist floats away, and you use the rainwater to rinse yourself off. The Acid Neutralization Jutsu is mastered. You'll be able to cancel out Acidic attacks, turning them into normal water. The chakra cost is equivalent to the technique cancelled. You decide to head home before the rain causes you to catch a cold. That's the last thing you want before this important mission. When you get home, you eat a modest dinner and set your alarm for the early morning. Shutting your eyes, you try to focus, but the excitement from earlier just hasn't stopped building. With all of your friends at your side, there's a good chance you'll finally be able to take out Shozuku using your new jutsu. Even though there's a fight coming up tomorrow, and you know you'll be in danger, you just can't help but smile. "Hehehe..He's never gonna see it coming.." You fall asleep after an hour or so, finally calming down enough to rest your tired body.In the morning, you shower, same as ever, and eat your breakfast. Before you head out, you leave a note for your brother to let him know that you're going on a mission.As you head to the village gates, you see a few of the other Genin prepared, as well as Rock Lee. There's Ai, Lee, Shinji and Mari. You'll have time to speak to everyone, but who do you want to talk to before everyone else arrives?>A. Ai>B. Rock Lee>C. Shinji>D. Mari
>>2087808>>B. Rock Lee

"Morning, Ai."She looks over, and yawns. "Good morning. You look as prepared for the mission as ever, Takeshi.""What do you mean?" you say. She glances down, and then back up, looking over your vast assortment of weapons, poisons, and scrolls. Not to mention the goggles you have that can zoom in, the Jet Sheath, and the spandex suit. You look fully prepared for war.You chuckle. "Hehe..maybe you have a point. I'm prepared for any situation!"She grins. "Good. I've been training hard as well. Handling the first waves of their forces shouldn't be a problem."Shinji steps forward. "Especially not with a group our size. Three Jounin, a Chunin and eight seasoned Genin. Rock Lee and Hanto are both extremely capable close combatants, so they'll be doing much of the heavy lifting I imagine."Ai folds her arms. "I doubt it will be that simple, but either way we will be victorious. Hopefully we can limit the destruction to the city."Mari overhears, and her and Rock Lee join the conversation. She starts. "Well, everyone here has experience dealing with Jashinists, and our detection methods are going to be second to none. With Takeshi's medical support and our general skills, even that freakazoid wouldn't be able to touch us!"Rock Lee sighs. "Hopefully we don't encounter them at all, and it's a false alarm. I'd hate to see a force as large as they claim in a single civilian city.."--That's all for tonight folks. The next thread will be next monday, or possibly earlier.

>>2087930>Gotcha bossThanks senpai.
I have a feeling that if we make jounin iver the timeskip, that kid we meet will be one of our genin
>>2087960You gotta be a Jonin for a while before you train a squad I think.
>>2087971Kurenai is a very new jounin IIRC. That might be from a Quest or something though.
>>2087976like the new tailed beasts and training for kek gen releases?
>>2087921But the real question is this. Which opening is the best?
>>2088076Generally inclined to agree, Inner Light is easily my favorite.Though at the same time, it's hard to ignore the sheer, almost annoying, catchiness of Under Star. It gets in your head and just stays there, for days and even weeks on end.
>>2087930>you plop down in front of a Playstation 2 and pop in the newest RPG>Playstation 2But Itagaki's pro debut was in '94, Mini.
>>2087976Kurenai was from the Naruto era. This is Boruto era.But yeah, you usually are a Jonin for a bit before you get a squad, if you even want one.
>>2088128I already called it out in that thread
>>2088109>FEEEEEEELIIIIING OOOOOOVEEERRRRWhile Understar is my favorite, I will concede that Inner Light is the all around better song and it has a much better intro sequence behind it.
Just reread The Fighting thread from last January.I want that to start up so bad you don't even know. I wanna watch Yuuto go from snivelling nerd to a lanky jab and counter machine
>>2088269And he's gonna be a monster, too.Only 3% of the Japanese population is left-handed, so being a Southpaw will be a nasty surprise early on. And once he's established some, opponents will have a VERY hard time finding southpaw sparring partners to train with in preparation for fighting him.
>>2088315If we can train around being a lanklet, we could be a contender for sure.
>>2088315I also love the idea of becoming a stance switcher. Don't let the enemy get too comfortable, don't let them establish dominance or rhythm. It was said in the thread, but we'll be a newbie crusher.
Finally fukin caught up to this quest.Been fun to binge.
Idea for a new-ish jutsu. A Shadow Senbon Jutsu where we hide senbon (or poisoned senbon) in the shadow of other senbon.
>>2088588That sounds really hard to do properly, what with senbon being like needles, but it might be cool.
>>2088612We already have some ridiculous accuracy. It might be something that's not too far off from being possible. It's the perfect way to introduce a strong paralytic into someones system. Especially if they're already wary of us.
>>2088588>>2088612>>2088789How about we bugger someone that knows to teach us Shadow Clone instead?Honestly, even though we lack the chakra to make it feasible to use properly in combat, even being able to have a single clone would be a huge boon to our training, and that's all that matters.Takeshi's wondered how his doppelganger was able to learn Boil release so young, and I have reason to believe it's simply because of shadow clones boosting the results of his training.We wasted two whole months learning Fire release and a few fire jutsu when we could have potentially cut it down to one month with a clone, that's a whole extra month of training something else or hanging out with friends.Clones, man, for someone that focuses their training on learning Genjutsu, ninjutsu and other mental and chakra control based things, even a single extra Takeshi would cut the time costs considerably which we can then put forward to shoring up our physical bases, kenjutsu or to simply get more time for social links.For God's sake, we haven't even seen Kayo for at least 2 months after she showed up to our birthday party, I bet a lot of you already forgot who the hell Kayo is too because of all this never ending focus on training.My point is, with so many characters around, yet Takeshi and anons being so focused on training and spreading themselves so thin they have no time for social stuff, having a shadow clone in the back pocket to drop off at the library might give us some breathing room, especially now with the timeskip coming, and by extension the waifu open season, it might come in handy, not that it wouldn't have come in handy from the moment we could have asked Naruto for it such a long time ago, we would certainly have seen dividends on this for a while now.>tl;drShadow Clones, my dudes, for a bunch of people that want to get stronger and learn everything they can, completely disregarding the one thing that would boost it and cut down on the time spent on something, seems counterintuitive, are you guys just contrarian or don't want to use the already overused gimmick because it's a cliché even though it just harms progress in the end? Because even just being able to squeeze a single shadow clone from our meager reserves it still can focus on mastering a Genjutsu by itself while we can focus on something else, also, instant dummy to test it out and completely master said Genjutsu.
>>2088848We had a chance to learn Shadow clones early on from Naruto.We passed it up for the Body Flicker, IIRC.
>>2088870no he said he wouldnt teach us shadow clones
>>2088870At the time it was dubious whether we could even make a clone, IIRC. Body Flicker is super useful and has kept us alive at least once.
Shadow clones will be useful for learning non chakra intensive techniques nd learning/studying jutsu
>>2088870Yeah, as a reward for keeping the daughteru safe on the mission, I pointed the missed chance out, not that Body Flicker hasn't become one of our bread and butters though.Doesn't mean we're completely locked out of ever learning it, we know at least three people who know it, Naruto, Kakashi and Burrito, Burrito would probably tells us to fuck off, Naruto's probably too busy, so that leaves Kakashi. We gotta Ask Kakashi if he's willing, once we get the chance.>>2088877Nah, see pic, but considering the guy started creating dozens of them immediately, I find it hard to believe a genin with average reserves can't at least create one which is plenty enough for keikaku boi Takeshi.People chose flicker because of the instant utility when the exams were closing in and I don't blame them for it, but you can't deny we wouldn't at least be able pull out a single clone given enough time to learn at the cost of gimping ourselves from being in fighting shape, which wouldn't even matter if we only used it when focusing on reading up on a scroll or meditate.I say clones should be our next priority, if only to make learning jutsu and practicing elements in the future take less time and to not gimp ourselves by doing social links over getting more training in, because damn did we go full training autist with the Fire release right after our birthday.
>>2088912ye we could probably make a clone or two right now
>It's the timeskip>day and night takeshi permanently has at least one clone reading from scrolls copied from the owls>which he used other clones to transcribe>waking hours he has clones spar with/assist in all non-chakra intensive training>every night he makes a single clone and sends it off on "stealth missions" ie: trying to stack rocks ontop of a sleeping sasuke, braiding Ais hair while she sleeps, and drawing funny faces on Rokufor real the possibilities
>>2088912And about learning the shadow clones. We're doing the timeskip right after this mission. So unless it's something we can learn in a session or two then Sasuke will have to show us.
Anyone else find it hilarious that Boruto idolizes the only guy in the village who's a worse father than he is?
>>2088989I think pedosnake is worse than either one, actually.>but he's not in the villageNeither is Sauce, 99% of the time.
>>2089001I mean, Orochi gave mitsuki more than sas gave sarada. And Orochi seems to be watching Mitsuki and actually cares about him.It's pretty close.
>>2089012Fair point.And Sauce is doing a shit job at trying to rebuild his Clan, too..One kid? Really? You think ONE kid is gonna rebuild a fucking Clan?You could have at least gone for two!
>>2089001He's avoiding Sakura.
>>2089001>>2089012Don't you know? Pedosnek went legit at the end of the shitshow. Heck, he was even at Naruto's wedding all smiles and getting drunk.Completely forgiven of his actions, much like the Sauce, while being allowed by the leaf to carry out whatever the fuck he had going, under some supervision, to the point he's looking younger, but unlike Sauce being a murder hobo Snekman went on to bring back the Sound village as an actual ninja village, gained a "new appreciation for natural development of people", went into cloning and now has a clone/son that he helicopter parents, despite not being present much, he basically keikaku'd his son's desire to rebel and go to the leaf, because he knew that would do him some good in his development for example, the mind game equivalent of a doting mother telling his shut-in son to go outside and make some friends.What does Sauce do? Fucking nothing, I mean, if I had a bitch wife like Sakura I'd be fucking gone as long as possible too, but he completely neglects Salad in the process.This shit is just a product of Kishimoto being a hack anyway. The ninja world basically operates on Fable rules: you can do whatever the fuck you want, but as long as you say sorry or just leave the area for a while, the crime's gone.
>>2089025If Sas were a good parent he would kidnap Sarada for field trips every now and then. At least for like a week at a time. maybe every month or two.
>>2089019hmmmm.Maybe when we do our timeskip with Sauce we can talk some sense into him. get him to knock sakura up a few(dozen) more times.Maybe even convince him that Sarada would like to see her father. Speaking of which, why the isn't Sarada doing timeskip training with Sasuke? If fucking Boruto get's to train with sas and she doesn't someone needs to slap whoever says she can't. Girl needs some Sharingan training for fucks sake.
>>2089037Hell at this point Kakashi should force the issue. Track Sasukes ass down and drop Sarada into his hands and tell him to train his little girl. He can try to shirk being a father, but he's still the only Sharingan in the village and someone needs to show sarada how to use the only inheritance she ever got.
>>2089039Since that's the main reason that Sasuke was put under kakashi in the first place.
>>2089035>>2089037>>2089039>>2089041Dude, instead of replying to yourself you could have kept all that in a single post, don't be in a rush, the thread isn't going anywhere, and write everything you want to say so you can stop with the unnecessary multiposting, come on, it's wasteful.
>>2089048Ye my bad. Just thoughts spitballing
>>2089049Also kakashi has a fully completed, probably fully trained mangekyo sharingan, so he could train Sarada's sharingan, just saying.
>>2089058Yes, but he shouldn't HAVE TO.Sasuke should be willing to AT LEAST put in enough effort to teach his fucking daughter that much.
>>2089058ummmm, im like 93% sure that he lost it at the end of Shippuden. Is why he developed the Tanketsu
>>2089066That's not really the point though, he knows how it works and could teach her just fine. also why the ummmmm?>>2089063But the training isn't the important part, the point is that he should spend time with her, so the helping her in general so this>>2089039to me isn't a valid argument, everything else is though.
>>2089101Wasn't 100% sure if Mini changed it here or not, but was fairly sure. Still either way it'd be a good way for people in the village to force Sas to actually parent his kid a bit.
>>2089112Fairly sure he hadn't changed it that is.
>>2089058>>2089066>>2089112>>2089113Kakashi has two normal eyes, now. Anon was correct about that being the reason he made the Tanketsu
So how often does mini run usually? once a week? twice a week? I know we just got off a hiatus but i just caught up.
>>2089672Once a week seems about right.
>>2089672Yup but it's usually a ton of content when they run.
Mini would you actually lets us learn the clone jutsu that helps us train before the time skip or would it be one of those you can only get it after the time skip sort of things like sage mode?
If Shadow Clone has the same barrier for entry as Sage mode im calling bullshit. Time constraint I could see, but those could be rectified by focusing on Shadow clones for the first portion of the timeskip in order to amplify the rest of the training we do during it.
>>2089739>>2089756See, the problem is that we had the option to learn it at previous points but chose to learn other things instead, and we're about to go on the final mission of part 1. After the mission we make the mentor choice and then timeskip. So it's probably too late at this point, and you can't even call bullshit because we had the chance to learn it before.
>>2089762I don't think that what naruto was gonna teach us was the one that helps us train, then again that could be my memory fucking up.
>>2089762punishing us for being practical is retarded. Plus it only makes sense that it would be the first thing we would focus on in the timeskip. No matter who we go with. Takeshi knows the value of the Shadow Clones and knows how ridiculous it'll make his training.
>>2089792It was one of the options, and most jounin in konoha know it, we had time to learn it and didn't.>>2089813We might have time to learn it but even if we don't, I hardly see how that would be punishment. We didn't learn it, now we're on the final mission before official hiatus, and odds are we'll just learn it during the time skip. I don't see how this is an issue.
>>2089981Look, if kid Naruto can learn Shadow Clone Jutsu just by butting his head against it for a couple hours, we should be able to get a hang of it pretty easily.
>>2089981Not being able to learn it during the timeskip is the main concern. Since Shadow clones won't really be combat effective for us for quite a while, and are just a multiplicative training aid. Since they can be reading and practicing jutsu and practicing other skills 24/7 while we do other things or train alongside them.All I wan't is that multiplicative bonus for our 2.5 Year Training Timeskip.
>>2091178I just wonder who is gonna train him... did we ever figure out who we were going with?What were the choices again?
>>2090245The only concern is that each attempt at it will eat us a substantial amount of our chakra until we've mastered low chakra shadow clones. Once we do though, our level of control should allow for quite a few clones each with the smallest amount of chakra possible.>>2091186Things seemed pretty decided for Sasuke. And there's no way he doesn't know Shadow Clones. The other option was nart but fuck if learning from someone dumber than you doesn't sound absolutely bonkers.
>>2091195>fuck if learning from someone dumber than you doesn't sound absolutely bonkers.Actually... We've suffered from overthinking things before. Maybe we could learn how to turn our brain off once in a while. However, which one had Mari and which had Himawari?
>>2091206Himawari isn't going with one, mari is going with nart.And deciding who's going to mentor us for 2 and a half years based upon waifus when we'r 13 is dumb and you should feel bad. Im a huyga fag too but gitting gud is much more important.
>>2091215The only way Naruto would get my vote is if he taught us about Senjutsu Chakra and Sage Mode shit.Considering how that's probably way too dangerous for us to learn atm, that's probably a hard no.
>>2091219Mini confimred we couldn't get Sage mode until after the time skip, but he would let us know about it. Which I imagine that we would know about either way just by virtue of being educated.
>>2091219IRc he actually would
Hey Mini, when's Kichiro's birthday? I thought of a great present for him that's also thematically appropriate.
>>2091242Think it was during the chunin exams before last
>>2091245Nah it was when he was in the hospital after the tailed beast incident
>>2091215No, I was asking because it would influence our training. With Mari we'd improve our weapon skills a lot, but Himawari could help with our raw taijutsu more. I'll also be honest, I forgot Mari had the Byakugan too so I was thinking Himawari would help us study chakra circuits.On the waifu side I kinda want Himawari to stay behind. She'll miss us and when we return she'll be all nervous and it'll be adorable.
>>2091257Ehh, if you want weapons training we have someone even better. Sasuke is a fucking weapons master. I actually dunno if the sharingan can see chakra coils. Also agreed that our big return should be amazing. But with Nart we'd be staying in the village while with Sas we'd travel the whole world. (Mini actually said that we'd go to pretty much EVERYWHERE with sas at some point or another) And that just get's my dick hard because that kind of experience sounds amazing.
>>2091268I had also forgotten Mari was going with sauce, so yeah. We are gonna be a beast with that jet sheathe.
>NartMari, Kichiro, someone else i forgot>SasAi, Boruto, Roku
>>2091273No she isn'tMari is going to train with Nalt along with Kichiro and SaladSaucy Kay is training Roku, Ai and Burrito.
Besides, Sas is probably one of if not THE best swordsmen in the Leaf.
>>2091280Not to mention that, even if he doesn't know much Genjutsu, we'll still have a chance to train with the Owls from time to time that we won't have if we're training with Naruto which will also let us learn a bunch of ancient forgotten jutsus besides.
>>2091278I think Sarada was going with Nart
>>2091285But is she even worth remembering though?
>>2091284as much as I don't like refuting points that aid my viewpoint, we'll be able to train with the Owls no matter who we choose.>>2091287She's a friend.
>>2091287She's getting better.Never going to be waifu material but she's edging towards friends.
Also we can't train with Naruto for another good reason.We wouldn't be able to have a return match with Kichiro as rivals after the timeskip if we went with him.Plus Sasuke could probably teach us how to use our tanto and jet sheath properly.
>>2091291Thought we wouldn't be allowed to go very far from the village for too long if we're training with Naruto.Isn't it like a two day trip to Owlopolis, a two day trip back on top of however long we spend training there?
>>2091295You know what I see training with Naruto?Paperwork.
>>2091295All I know is that Mini said we'd get to train with the owls mp ,atter what.
>>2091296He'll make a bunch of shadow clonesWhat I see is a neglected Hinata and Himawari wondering why and how he managed to carve time out of his schedule to train 3 kids, one of which is basically his gay lover's daughter, but can't spend any time with them.
>>2091301>implying they won't just be Sakura tier in-the-backgroundShe probably has more fond memories of the scarf he gave them when they were kids than she does of them actually being married.
>>2091302Why must best girl and best daughteru suffer so?
>>2091303I need that cute Himawari gif stat.Also, I apologize for getting shit wrong, I have a fever of over 101 and I'm not thinking straight.
>>2091301Also, why doesn't he just give Shikamaru a stamp with his signature on it or something?Or, and stay with me, Make even more shadow clones?No excuses Naruto. You're being almost as crappy a father as fans think Goku is.>>2091303It'll keep up 'till tsundere traits start to form, as is Hiashi Hyuga's actual plan.
>>2091306You say that like there are any Himawari gifs where she isn't cute>>2091308Goku is still kind of a crappy father by human standards.
Man am I the only one who wants to waifu Ai? Salad or Mari would also be acceptable.
>>2091312What the fuck am I even talking about here.The award for worst father(and husband) go to Sasuke.
>>2091315No Ai would be a decent pick for the Takeshi-Bowl.
>>2091315It's a bit odd, knowing she used to see her brother when she looked at us. Makes me feel incest-y. Definitely want to make her happy though.
>>2091315No because they are three of the most agreed upon waifus in the quest with the only others being Nyoro~n, The amazonian swordswoman and the heretics who want to waifu Himawari instead of turning her into a sisteru who is for protec only.>>2091317Difference is Sasuke is a shitty human being through and through.
>>2091319Can't help looking like another dude.Although seeing as we're gonna be in a deathmatch with Shozoku, it might be just a little awkward with Ai.
>>2091321>No because they are three of the most agreed upon waifus in the questSalad is a meme and you know it.Mari and Ai are definitely dark-horse candidates though.
>>2091326>Darkhorses>First girl, best girland>Cute, slightly off-kilter teammateThey are front runners, stop lying.
>>2091326>Mari being a dark horse. I'll give you Ai as one though.
>>2091326Gonna admit it now, I wanna get Takeshi some Hyuga babbies of his own one day.Either is fine, they're both great, but Himawari wins me over by being adorable.
>>2091330Admittedly I was unsure of what the term "darkhorse" actually meant.Blame mainstream media.That aside, yeah those tow are definitely top picks.Yasu is also a strong pick.
>>2091335>Himawari wins me over by being adorable.Do you really want Naruto and Bort making thinly veiled threats at you all day though?
>>2091340To be fair, Naruto trusts us and Boruto's a shitter even now that he's stopped trying to be.Doesn't mean we should waifu Hima though.
I have to admit, A small part of my love for himawari is wanting to fuck Borutos sister. Even if we'll probably become bros over the timeskip.
>>2091340I wanna see them try, then have takeshi literally 100% fail to notice them
>>2091341You know what, Takeshi is a prime pick for any chick in the village.>great hygiene>fantastic discipline>always plans in advance>aesthetic tattoo>friends with damn near everybody
>>2091336How the fuck is Yasu a strong pick? We've literally never had a single positive interaction with her besides maybe that one mission where we spoke like 20 words to her the entire time. The bitch called our sensi and best friend Scum and I'm really surprised yall didn't vote to tell her to go fuck herself in that scene.
>>2091345We have a tattoo?
>>2091345And once we come home after a two and a half year long training course on pretty-boyology with pretty boy supreme, we'll probably have to fight our way through a horde of girls to get to our waifu.
>>2091348Do you know how popular the concept of hate fucking is on this board?Dumb shit can sway anons, you know this.
>>2091350Maybe Sasuke can train us to be irrationally handsome to every girl in our age range.Seems to be his only real talent desu.
>>2091351I do, and i fucking despise it. Plus hate fucking still usually requires some level of attraction and interaction. Would you fuck Shozuku? Because I would rather him than her.
>>2091354Don't you give the drawfags ideas.
I know im rehashing a spent shitstorm but WHY THE FUCK DIDN'T YOU GUYS JUST TAKE THE GODDAMN DRUGS HOLLY SHIT ANONS WHAT THE FUCK.There, im done.
>>2091349Underdog seal over our heart, stores an extra 5% of our maximum chakra over the course of a day so that we can go all out and still have some gas in the tank for emergencies, it's how we beat Bort in the chunin exam finals.>>2091351>hate fuckingGreat for friends with benefits, less so for healthy relationships.
>>2091357oh that, ye forgot that was visible. I assumed it faded away like the Nart seal.
>>2091356>Muh poisonIt showed what too much shadowrunning looks like.
>>2091356Winners don't do drugs, anon.Be cool, stay in school.
>>2091356It's been about 8 months man.Time's passed, people have changed.But one thing still remains the same.>D.rug>A.buse>R.esistance>E.ducationTAKESHI IS A GOOD BOY WHO DOESN'T DO DRUGS! For real though, taking unknown drugs in front of the big bad is a terrible idea.
>>2091358It's an actual tattoo though, not just hoodoo voodoo chakra bullshit.Also Mini, what does the Underdog seal look like?
>>2091359That retarded. >He did a line of coke off the table>he says "Here do some drugs off the table I and all my buddies have been doing drugs off of">somehow anons think that all the drugs are poison to justify their fantasies.>>2091360we're a child soldier dammit>>2091363fuck no it wasn't. We were literally about to leave right after setting up a meeting point. We wouldn't even feel the effects until we had left.
>>2091364Kanji for underdog or whatever the nearest approximation is.
>>2091366It mostly came down to whether or not the drugs would fuck with our genjutsu and make us drop our glamour in the middle of a crowded club surrounded by Jashinists, the only reason it wasn't the dumbest option is because one of the others was "Fire a loaded gun into a crowd" but we probably shouldn't open this particular can of worms any further.
>>2091371I know, it's just I saw the whole shitstorm coming the moment Mini mentioned all the drugs on the table. It's a tired old trope and it's annoying when people balk at doing the drugs to earn the trust of the bad guy. Fuck DEA agents are allowed to do it so when should ninjas when we've been killing since we were 12.
>>2091367I don't know Japanese, not that it's a language worth learning.
>>2091383 Now imagine [WAIFU]'s hand resting over that as she cuddles with Takeshi.
>>2091383Okay that is pretty dam cool. Now imagine our child with Hyuga Eyes and Naruto Chakra with the underdog seal
>>2091386I'm too busy imagining post-timeskip Takeshi with the slicked back Aizen hair and the yakuza style back tattoos.Nothing cliche like a dragon though.A Koi with the Kanji for soap somewhere would do.
>>2091393Tattoos are criminally underrepresented in Quest MCs.
>>2091394I know right? We have a quest running that's specifically titled Thug Quest and the MC doesn't have a tattoo to speak of.
>>2091324>Although seeing as we're gonna be in a deathmatch with Shozoku, it might be just a little awkward with Ai.>Fight to the death with immortal doppelganger.>He's losing his shit over us one upping him.>Gets completely triggered to hell and back when we bust out the boil release soap counter.>To add even more salt to the wound, we waifu his Ai. "I hugged your sister after a heart to heart, it was cute."I think this would break the guy more than any weapon could ever do.Takeshi the underdog, matching him even though he's been in the business for less, keeps outdoing him in the ninjutsu department without the benefits of natural talent and now he plants himself in the heart of his little sister.
>>2091395Someone needs to slap the shit outta the QM and/or players for allowing that to be.
>>2091398Players also have a penchant for getting the MC critically injured often, so it evens out.He should have tattoos though since the quest takes place before tattoos were for hipsters and the MC's backstory calls for at least 2-3 of em.
>>2091396I think we've already been planted as the closest relation to AI that she has ever had. I'd rather keep her as a Sister figure. We're cucking him out of his brothership. A better brother than he ever was.
>>2091392[Hiashi Hyuga intensifies]
>>2091396>"I'm pretty sure your sister would be pissed if you killed me. We did hug and shit after all.">cue autistic shit-fit into hard counter with the soap
>>2091403What would the underdog seal actually be able to do for Naruto's grandkid in that situation?Even having a quarter of the amount of Chakra the nine tails gives Naruto means that they'd still have damn near infinite reserves as they grow up.
Wait fuck...we need more seal tattoos.This can be our gimmick.
>>2091409It's like a Chakra defibrillator. Wakes you up when ur ass gets knocked out.
>>2091409Heck yeah, because it's a flat 5 percent of your maximum. If Naruto had it he'd likely gain more chakra from using it than an entire Anbu squad, fresh on a mission.
>>2091410We need to find a way to upgrade the underdog seal to give us at least 10% maybe more.
>>2091392>Now imagine our child with Hyuga Eyes and Naruto Chakra with the underdog sealImagine our child with Hyuga eyes, Naruto tier Chakra, the underdog seal PLUS Takeshi work ethic and deviously tricky mind.Himawari confirmed king of eugenics choice.>>2091410If you haven't been paying attention our gimmick is deception and Genjutsu. Besides, you do realize we'd have to go into yet another ninja field just to do this right? Aren't we spread thin enough?
>>2091415I assume the maximum capacity on the seal has something to with the amount of ink.Storage capacity probably doesn't stay consistent as more ink is added, but that's just an even better excuse for our Yakuza Tattoos.
>>2091416Well I mean a design gimmick.But I suppose it would detract from Takeshi being the background character who made it with the big shots.
>>2091417>Takeshi throws off his shirt to reveal a yakuza style Akita back tattoo.>Let's him store 50% of his max chakra.
>>2091410Maybe post time skip after Sage mode. But we've got plenty of areas to focus on for now. Boil Release, Genjutsu, building up or taijutsu and iron skin, GITTING GUD with our tanto and other weapons, Learning Tanketsu???, etc, etcWho else wants to be able to bounce needles off of each other like Itachi does with Kunai? Would we need Tanketsu for that?I would also like to point out that if we train with Sasuke (and Ai) there's a strong possibility that AI (with Sas help) will teach us Tanketsu. And since she learned Tanketsu + Four Witches + Chidori in a single month at can't be THAT difficult to use.
>>2091421I thought four witches was Ai's bloodline technique.
>>2091421Come to think of it. Ai learned s fuck ton from Kakashi in that month like holly shit. Chidori alone took sas a month (which was explained as mostly just Sasuke training his speed to be able to handle the Chidori, which Ai already has)>>2091423It still apparently took a lot of training to use.
God fuck the way Tite Kubo draws heads.
>>2091424>Come to think of it. Ai learned s fuck ton from Kakashi in that month like holly shit.Takeshi also learned a bunch of stuff from his 1 month training with Shikamaru.On top of getting all his stats to an average level he also learned Paralyzing Bells, Hydro Sword, the basics of Sealing to the point of making a basic seal that holds senbon, Interrogation Genjutsu...By comparison Takeshi went full POWER OF YOUTH
>>2091430ye but most of those were basic in comparison to fukin Chidori and Tanketsu.
>>2091430You know that reminds me, once we develop our Iron Fist style we should do some joint training with Metal Lee.
>>2091431You already said Chidori focuses on speed, which Ai already had bruv, on top of the lightning release too, and the Four Witches is her bloodlimit so she's already got a natural affinity for it.She didn't have to spend weeks just working on her strength, stamina and speed like Takeshi, she could dive immetiadely into the jutsu, not only that but get out of here with "Basic" in comparison, Chidori might be an A-rank and Tanketsu is probably up there if not higher, but the shit Takeshi learned was at the very least C-rank, I know for a fact the interrogation one is a B-rank alone.For a guy without any natural talent or powerful autism like Ai, that's above and beyond what she managed to accomplish in the same amount of time.
>>2091440she just learned 3 A-S ranked jutsu while we worked on 2 Cs and a B plus some stats. It's understandable that we're pretty average, but does this make Ai like Sasuke level Genius?
>>2091444We're not exactly average.It wasn't Ai that learned a second chakra style that's totally opposite her own.It wasn't Ai that became the first human to enter a summoning contract with the Owl clan in hundreds of years.It wasn't Ai that learned how to make soap out of her own body's energy.
>>2091444>but does this make Ai like Sasuke level Genius?Pretty much, yeah? Ai is basically Part 1 Sauce, heck, she's even from a wiped out clan and her brother is an asshole being manipulated into villainy, on top of him just being unhinged already, she's even got the anti social thing going on and also has at least one dude interested in her, so yeah, Ai is pre timeskip Sauce.Also, don't undermine the stats, they are a pretty big deal plus I'm talking in the span of a single month here, sure she got basic prescience she can use for a limited time before brain damage, can sprout another set of arms and cast a lighting jutsu, but Takeshi really squeezed the shit out of that time to improve, which is the point I'm trying to make.
>>2091450Plus generally just thinking about our actions and progress and what to focus on.
>>2091451Oh i know about the stats thing. They're kind of the "baseline" for remaining relevant. We're keeping our stats good enough to be able to keep up and not get steamrolled while we beat our foes with intelligence and planning. I'm proud we've kept our taijutsu as good as it is. And post timeskip once our Iron Skin is really starting to come in + Taijutsu training with Sasuke and Ai and Boruto we should definitely be able to hold our own. Pulling an Aizen and stopping Shozukus sword with our finger when?
Hmmm, we should keep a file and a lockpick hidden inside the sole of our boots. As like super last ditch efforts for if we ever get captured.
This is a long shot but i figured i'd ask anyway.Anyone remember a quote that goes along the lines of "Look into the eyes of every man you kill, remember their faces and never forget, because they will never forget you." somthing like that.I'm trying to find the source. Or if anyone knows how the quote actually goes it'll help me find it too.
>>2091485never mind found itSolf J. Kimblee"The one thing worse than death is to avert your eyes from it. Look straight at the people you kill. Don't take your eyes off them for a second. And don't ever forget them, because I promise that they won't forget you."soz for spamming things up
>>2091315Kind of, I mean she is emotional unstable and also would not be able to cope with child birth both physically and mentally, Basically she is very easy to mess up mentally and the relationship would be pretty fucked up. I can see her being best friend material but not waifu material, which is fine as not every girl is meant to be a waifu.
>mini is back
>>2091429It's everything I've dreamed of and more.Can't wait for time skip.
>>2091336>How the fuck is Yasu a strong pick? We've literally never had a single positive interaction with her besides maybe that one mission where we spoke like 20 words to her the entire time. We went on a date with Yasu once, it was Hanto's idea. We took her to lunch, and had a pretty blunt talk about shit I can't remember the Boruto showed up, and we used our superior intellect to make a fool outta him. Then Yasu walked herself home.It was a nice interaction, doesn't make Yasu waifu material.
>>2091535It wasn't a date, he didn't want to deal with her being a bitch while he was walkng her home so he pawned her off on us.She was a bitch to us then Burrito tried to start a fight, we ran circles around him, she smiled then walked home.
>>2091535That's not what happened. We were out eating with Hanto when Yasu showed up and yelled at him for not picking her up. Hanto then made us walk her home. Yasu berated and belittle us the entire time. Then we got into a fight with Boruto and sarada defused the situation. Then Yasu insulted us more then walked away.
>>2091503I really don't care who we end up waifuing as long as it isn't Yasu, the Puppet girl or the Snow chick, so allow me to play devils advocate on this. Prepare for autistic wall of text.>I mean she is emotional unstableShe's aloof or an high fuctional autist; for a child soldier who's lost both her biological and adoptive parents and has a terrorist for a twin brother, she's quite well adjusted, sure she's a loner and focuses on her job or training but she's shown to not mind socializing, she even tries to improve on it. She isn't swapping between anger to sadness or happiness quickly or anything that might show instability, she takes it slow and shows emotional maturity rather than instability.>Would not be able to cope with child birth both physically and mentallyWhere's this meme that she can't handle childbirth come from? It's ridiculous, all assumptions from a bunch of anons that clearly underestimate the body, just because adult Ai is destined to be petite doesn't mean she can't handle childbirth, if being petite was all it took to die from it, there would be a lot of dead women and teens all around the world, and even if the pregnancy would truly be a risk, are you telling me Ninja world doesn't have the medical knowhow to do C-section delivery? Come on, this is the most ridiculous reason to not pursue a girl and on the mental part, she's seen bloody and immortal people shredded to pieces, already killed some too, she can handle that, she can handle a completely natural process in her body, Jesus, by the time she actually gets pregnant I wouldn't be surprised if she would consider it a breath of fresh air to create life rather than take it for once, probably take it super serious too, like a mission, reading up and gathering info from mothers, to make sure she succeeds the best she can, she'd be the safest, most risk free expectant woman in the leaf, I'm talking avoiding smokers like the plague, compiling the best food recipes to eat to ensure a healthy baby and having it listen to Ninja audiobooks all the while denying us any more sex because she heard it might affect the baby, levels of expectant here.>Basically she is very easy to mess up mentallyAssumptions. If she isn't already messed up after all the shit she went through already, she won't be anytime soon.>the relationship would be pretty fucked upMore assumptions. Interacting with her has done nothing but good for her, and once she starts showing romantic interest, I doubt that would change. Expect cute things hombre, like her reading up on women magazines and dating books to prepare herself for a date, complete with a roadmap she drew up for said date to ensure the best possible outcome, even if the date is only dinner at Ichiraku's.Ai is clearly the kuudere flavor of waifu: emotionless and maybe even cold on the outside, but inside, she's just a regular person that just has a calmer and more sedated way of showing affection, doesn't mean it's not there.
Assumptions are necessary to healthy decision making.
>>2091552Baseless assumptions, however, are not.
>>2091553not really looking to argue this but your entire thing can be summed up as>"You're making assumptions about how she'd be and they're wrong">All while making your own assumptions about how she'd beis pointless
>>2091537>It wasn't a date.It was close enough, and not that's the point. The point is Yasu has waifu precedent, she's just not waifu material.But now that I think about it, what does it mean to be waifu material? If it means just not being a cunt, there are several characters that started that way before they got to know us.Let's be honest, in the very beginning there was no reason to like Takeshi. He was a literally who with no talent, and next to no personality. These girls have standards, and being a alright ninja isn't enough to make them wanna drop their panties.Mari was a HUGE cunt to us on our first meeting, but when we "beat" her in that fight, we gained the minimum respect needed to start building a friendship. Her placement at the tool shop makes her easily accessible, as we tend to frequent that place alot. We are even on speaking terms with her mother. And her previous defeat at the exam, lead her to being even more open. We have met her standards.Then we take Sadara, who is also a HUGE cunt. Her progress is far slower than Mari, but if you pay attention she has been coming around. She currently respects us, but only due to our Ascension in rank, a position she believes she would have gotten if she had fought us instead of Boruto. We don't see her as often as we see Mari, and while we are on speaking terms with Sakura we again, dont see her as often as TenTen. As it stands we are on weak, but positive terms with her, not because she isn't waifu material, but because WE haven't met her requirements as husbando. But there is no reason to believe she isn't a sweet girl if we got to know her.Then we have Ai who was a HUGE cunt, but thanks to our multiple encounters with her as both a teammate, and a friend she can trust, she has opened up to us. If you ask me she is currently the closest woman in Takeshi's life considering we don't have a mother, and for all intents and purposes she SHOULD be the waifu. She is considered a darkhorse candidate however, due to her intense social autism.I say all this to say, that considering Takeshi's hyper focus on training, the only girls we have time for are ones that are directly tied to just that. There are like 4 girls from Takeshi's graduating class I didn't even mention cause we rarely see them, so they never come up.Tl;dr Picking a waifu now is stupid, because it's premature. We don't really know these girls, and we probably won't get the chance until post timeskip.
Motherfucker, Boruto quest is back, and I completely missed last thread and this threadAlso I just realized that once waifu war starts for real, shit's going to be bloody, though hopefully not on the level of Princess something quest, and that retarded route lock
>>2091557I realized I was also making my own assumptions, difference is, mine are based on how Ai acted in the past and don't assume the worst based on nothing besides disbelief that healthy, if small, women can't naturally produce offspring. That anon however, was completely baseless.Anyway, take from that what you want, that was only my take on why Ai should be as viable as a waifu as all the others.
>>2091564Ai was never really a cunt though she was just aloof and distantAnd no, it wasn't close enough at all. We spent like 6 minutes walking with her and she spent the whole time making fun of us and Hanto, shit she's STILL making fun of Hanto and Kichiro now. There's no waifu precendent at all, if she doesn't unfuck herself then there won't even be a friendship precedence.
>>2091535Yeah no. We were eating with Hanto and she came over to find and throw a bitch fi and he pawned her off on us because his response to his sister being a grade A bitch is "Not dealing with your shit, bye.">>2091544I would say that she already is to an extent mentally fucked up. Citation? Ripping Mitsuki's throat out with a smile.She may be kuudere normally but there is some messed up shit in her head.Regardless we have a bevy of girls to try and pursue or pursue usSaradaAIChochoMariHimawariNyokoYasu (unlikely as shit but ey)and more.>>2091564>It was close enough, Yeah being forced at swordpoint to walk her home because her brother bailed on us and listen to her belittle us and sensei was sooooooooo romantic.Additionally while you are correct about Mari and tinfoil, Ai was never really a cunt, just aloof and distant cause tism.Not a cunt doesn't instantly mean waifu, just helps their chances. Kinda hard to love someone who 24/7 bashes your freinds and you by proxy.
>>2091564Besides not meeting requirements just yet, pretty sure we've still been dinging Salad's tinfoil hat of us secretly being an evil manipulative schemer who is only pretending to be a good natured, hard working and friendly young man
Himawari or Mari is fine
>>2091568Chocho is cute too but we haven't spent that much time with her.
>>2091567>>2091568Not gonna debate something that can be found and read easily. One of us is clearly wrong, and talking about like this when we can just go back and read it is pointless.Just understand I'm no fan of Yasu, but to say she has no waifu precedent is being willfully ignorant of those in this thread that have shit taste.>>2091569Tinfoil Sadara is a meme just like the "Sadara is unwaifuable" meme.It has some true, but nothing we can't fix.>>2091571So is Ai, Sadara, and Nyoko.
>>2091578>One of us is clearly wrongYes and it's YOU.
>>2091564>It was close enough, and not that's the point. The point is Yasu has waifu precedentNo she hadn't.Hanto pawned us off, she didn't even want us, we just followed her because our sensei told us too, she was a cunt all the way until Burrito showed up, and then just left us afterwards.>Mari was a HUGE cunt to us on our first meetingNo she wasn't.She was just arrogant, never really talked down to us and agreed on a friendly spar, she only got sour when we punched her and then forfeited right after.>Then we take Sadara, who is also a HUGE cuntYeah she was, I'll give you that, but she was quick to drop most of her cuntness after we straight up told her we weren't interested in her, only the book, which worked for her mother too.>Then we have Ai who was a HUGE cuntAi was never a cunt, she was nothing but courteous every time she had to talk.Honestly, I think we already soft locked ourselves from a few girls, if nothing else, simply because going their route would feel out of nowhere at this point considering how much we interact with them.The only girls that we've made some kind of longer lasting friendship with before the timeskip are>Ai: for obvious reasons>Sarada: by virtue of us forming a kind of study group even when her mom was out and surprising her constanlty>Nyoko: by seeking her out and going out of our way to keep in touch>Mari: leads this with the fact we are Tenten approved and went on a single date, saw her at the hospital and overall had the more development with.These are the girls we interacted on a deeper level than just the required pleasantries.The rest of the girls we met just start to fall off.>Kayo: at this point practically forgotten after anons not seeking her out for threads on end and the 8 month hiatus>Himawari: besides the coop during a few missions, we haven't really had any one on one with her at all.>Yasu: complete cunt through and through, she also talks shit about based sensei>Chocho: never even talked with her besides that time when she was stuffing her fat face with her squad.>Sand girl: Also a cunt that tried to kill us, we took one of her eyes, didn't even visit her at the hospital after, later and she's still a cunt.Am I forgetting anyone? Probably. I'm not saying these are completely off the table here, only pointing out that the more these girls take a back seat the less sense they make for waifuing later down the line, starts looking like how Kishimoto paired most of the cast; by just picking a character that had a few minutes with another somewhere and calling it done.
>>2091564dude not even close, this is some top tier delusion at this point. You sound like the IT guy who was asked to replace the paper in the printer by some chick and now you think she's coming onto you.
Huygas are the only acceptable option. Preferably Himawari because she's cute as all fuck but Mari would be acceptable.
Anyone remember around the time that mini wrote that omake? im about to prove a bitch wrong. I just finished catching up and it's clear time and prayer has deluded this anons mind.
literally just found it, posting it all>It's the night after a mission, and Hanto has decided to take the team out to Ichiraku's Ramen in order to celebrate. Ai declined, and Kichiro quickly scarfed down his food and left. Now that the day is drawing to a close, and you're draining the last of the broth from your bowl, the city is surprisingly active. Once you think about it, you realize that it's the weekend, and people are probably going to be celebrating all night. Celebrating what? The opportunity to celebrate, of course! You set down your bowl, and Hanto pays your tab with ease. He has several empty glasses of liquor next to him, and looks a bit frazzled. He yawns, and looks at the watch on his wrist. "Aw, jeez..My sister. I forgot to pick her up. She's going to be pissed..Oh well, she'll find her way back." You wipe the corner of your mouth. "Your sister? You mean that tough girl I've heard about?" He nods, bringing up a glass to his lips and tipping it slightly. He exhales smoothly, and the scent of hot liquor flies up through your nose and makes your skin crawl. Hanto nods. "That's right, Yasu is her name. She's...She takes after my mother. And my father. She's a handful, I should say." "HANTO!" Your sensei's head drops, and he grumbles. "Shit..Don't look at her, Takeshi. Maybe if we ignore her she'll go away.." Moments later, a rock shatters against the back of Hanto's head. You flinch and look across the street, and you see a shocking sight.
Yasu, Hanto's sister. She's a couple of years older than you, very clearly. She's tall and built powerfully, with clearly defined biceps, and a washboard core. She's wearing what seems to be a combination of armor and exercise gear. Brown spats shorts and boots. She has a long brown ponytail, and is wearing her Headband on her forehead. Her shirt reveals her midsection, and you can't help but feel a little intimidated by the amazon esque teen. In fact, as she approaches, you can see that she's nearly just as tall as your Sensei. She scoffs. "Brother, really? You spend your nights getting drunk with children, rather than taking care of your sister as you should have been? Ugh.. I had to walk back all the way to the Leaf from my mission!" Hanto scratches the stubble on his chin, still not turning around. "Why didn't Dad go with you, or your squad?" She crosses her arms, and laughs lightly with pride. As she looks to the left, her ponytail swings around. "He trusts me enough to do C and D rank missions on my own. But even so, a young girl shouldn't walk the roads alone at night." Hanto pinches his nose. "Yasu..Please. Just go home." She looks down at you, and frowns. "Who's this? One of your students?" You nod. "My name's Takeshi, nice to me-" She waves a hand at you, prompting you to stop speaking. "I was asking Hanto." Your sensei turns around, waggling a finger in front of his sister's face. "Hey! Don't be rude to my students. I'll have you know that Takeshi here is a very capable shinobi, and he won't take this sort of sass from you!" You blink. "I won't?" She uncrosses her arms and places her hands on her hips. "He won't?" Uh oh.
Hanto turns around and stands up, wobbling slightly. He grips your shoulder and hefts you up, so that you're also on your feet. You're a full head shorter than both of the people next to you, and you feel the tension of an age-old sibling rivalry forming in the air. In fact, you're pretty positive that you'd be turning around and walking away if it wasn't for Hanto's iron grip.He slaps your back, causing you to stumble slightly and step in front of Yasu. Hanto chuckles. "If you feel like you need a man to protect you on your way home, look no further. For now..I have some business to take care of. Good luck, Takeshi!" Your sensei vanishes, and the owner of the Ramen shop sticks his head out. "Hey! You didn't pay for your drinks!"The owner looks to Yasu. She scoffs. "I didn't eat here." The owner looks down to you. You issue a sigh of defeat and place the money on the counter, and look back to Yasu. "Well..I should probably head home. Uh..Nice to meet you, Yasu." Spinning on your heel, you try to escape. It doesn't fly though, and she pulls you back, in front of her. "Hold up. Do you know what sort of distance I just went all on my own? I'm tired! You should at least be enough of a man to escort me home, you know that? Of course, it would figure, with you being my Brother's student.." You rub the back of your head. "Why is everyone so mean to Hanto? I don't understand it at all." She frowns. "I bet you think he's a good person, huh? Well he's not. He's a jerk. It's amazing they even let him in the village, still."
She starts to walk away, and you're intrigued, so you follow. "What? What'd he do that was so bad?" Her long legs allow her to make big strides. It's difficult to keep up at a walking pace. She continues. "It's more like a whole bunch of things. He doesn't care about anyone's feelings but himself!" You frown, knowing that can't be true. Your sensei is generally a kind, but harsh man. "Well, I don't think that-" Your shoulder slams into someone, and both of you trip up and fall all over each other. After tumbling in the dirt and dust for a few moments, you stand up, and across from you is a very angry Boruto. The Hokage's son. He stomps around and wipes the dirt off of his clothes. "Hey! What's the big idea, huh!? Bumping into me like that, I should teach you a lesson!" Yasu chuckles. "Wow, that was smooth, Takeshi.." Next to Boruto, is Sarada. She pushes up on her glasses, and flatly greets you. "Hello, Takeshi."Boruto suddenly grips you by the shirt, and lifts you a couple of inches off the ground. Holy crap, you didn't know he was this strong. He yells. "So do you want me to kick your ass now, or later so you won't see it coming!?"
"I'd prefer that if you could realize it was an accident, and forget about it. But, if we're going to do this, it might as well be now. You don't mind waiting for a few seconds, right Yasu?"She's looking at her nails, and glances back to you. "Hm? Yeah, sure, it'll be over fast. Just make sure you can walk." You grab onto his arm, and pull your leg back, cocking it for a kick. You let it fly, and Boruto is struck in the chin, causing him to look straight up. He lets go of you, and you land on the ground, standing up straight with a confident smirk. Boruto slowly tilts his head back down, and glares at you with fury. "You're gonna regret that." He thrusts his palm out, and it strikes you in the chest. The force of it knocks you onto your rear, and you're shocked by his speed. Sarada steps next to you. "Takeshi, I think you should just go home. Boruto has a big bark, but it matches his bite." Yasu nods. "I get the feeling this kid's out of your league. Just give up, Takeshi."
>2 posts of fighting Boruto which im skippingYour foe takes up a fighting stance once more, and frowns. He tightens his headband and pulls up his sleeve, revealing some sort of strange metal gauntlet. He aims it at you, and presses a button on the side of the machine. Suddenly, a massive gust of wind blasts your way, and both you and Yasu have to leap out of the way to avoid a scythe of air. It crashes into the street, leaving a gash in the road. Yasu stomps forward. "What the hell's the big idea!? You're getting ME involved!?" She reaches around to her back, to the item that you've been trying to avoid looking at since you first saw it. It's a wooden sheath for a colossal sword, as tall as Yasu herself. She pulls off a latch..Sarada steps forward, in front of Boruto. "Stop. There's no need for this. We're all going to get in serious trouble if we keep this up. They might not let us participate at the Chunin exams!"Boruto stares at you with clear hateful intent, and walks away. Sarada silently follows, sighing. You look up at Yasu, and she latches her sword back. You chuckle. "Well..I protected you from that idiot, right?"She chuckles. "Idiot.." and leaves. She walks off by herself down an ally, and you feel it's best not to pursue her. You go home. The Chunin exams are soon, and you can't let yourself be shown up.
Now fucking point to ANYWHERE that implies this is a date.
>>2091629Like i said, close enough.And like I continue to say, it doesn't matter either way. Waifu precedent was set, and even now there are people who will defend her actions. But she's still a huge cunt.Thank you for posting all that, and proving me "wrong". Now we can move on.
>>2091643So you don't know how to read.Good to know.
>>2091647I feel like my point has been misunderstood, so let's try this again.Was this interaction with Yasu a "date", no.Was it an interaction between to people of the opposite sex, of the same age, that started off in a restaurant, yes.And this is close enough.I will admit, I orginally remember the interaction a bit differently, but my point isn't that Yasu has waifu precedent because it was a date that Takeshi enjoyed going on.My point is the fact that we had any interaction with her outside of a mission puts her ahead of some girls by default, and that some fuckers are the aforementioned IT guy, and DO think this is a come on.To deny this is to be ignorant of the shit taste that dwells in these threads.Also fuck you Mari and Himawari are the only acceptable choices. You get outta here with that eugenics shit.
>>2091668if those are your requirements for "date like" then you have something deeply wrong with you.And yes. Himawari and Mari are the only acceptable options. Though I suppose Sarada would be a consolation prize.
Plus the bitch Called Our Mentor and Our Best Friend Scum. That should automatically disqualify her from any sort of waifuing.
>>2091668So your entire point is that it is both close enough to a date and sets waifu precedent because she has a working vagina and we talked to her?
>>2091669>>2091671He's saying people with shit taste will use such justifications, personally he dislikes her but realizes there are anons who see swole tall girl and think "waifu" and will try to justify it using above references.
>>2091669>>2091671>if those are your requirements for "date like" then you have something deeply wrong with you.You are not wrong.>So your entire point is that it is both close enough to a date and sets waifu precedent because she has a working vagina and we talked to her?Yup, that all it takes for some people.And because Takeshi is all of us that all that's needed for him too.Please understand, I don't think she has any value as a waifu. But she IS in the running because there are people In This Very thread that feel she is.Additionally.>And yes. Himawari and Mari are the only acceptable options. Though I suppose Sarada would be a consolation prize.Care to explain yourself?
>>2091678Himawari is cute and likeable and we have had nothing but positive interactions with each other. We've also both saved each others lives. Which cannot be said for any other possibility expect maybe Ai.We've had a fun and healthy rivalry with Mari and had few deep conversations about life with her.Pretty much the same for Salad.Ai would be an option but she feels so much more like a sister than anything else. Plus we get to Brother-cuck Shozuku.Nyoko is a foreigner and a princess and has a serious "hollier than thou" thing going on. Everything with her is just a whole can of worms we don't wanna openpuppet girl is a lolnoand cho cho I don't think we've ever actually spoken too. same with Kayo Eugenics is also a thing. Gotta look out for our offspring after all. Unfortunately it's pretty OOC. Though when we're older it might very well be something that a person like Takeshi would think about.And i understand your point about "people are so deluded that they'll try to spin this interaction 180 degrees into the opposite of what it was. But we must remain vigilant in calling the fucking retards for it.
>>2091690So really what you meant to say was that Mari and Himawari are your personal favorites, but Ai and Sadara are good too.Understood.Personally like I said before I feel it's too early to put your eggs in any basket, let alone only one. We need time to really form relationships with these girls before we go head long into route lock.Well we don't NEED it, but it's nice to have it. Ups the over all quality of the quest long termHell you think Himawari is cute, but we only really talked to her twice outside of missions. Although it's kinda implied that we are on familiar terms with Naruto's family due to the errands we do for him.Also I am glad we are on the same page with the Yasu shit. I felt like I was gonna have a brain aneurysm if I had to explain it again.
>>2091707I actually genuinely believe that Ai straight up wouldn't work out.And yes i would like to point notice to the whole errand running thing for naruto. I was kinda mad when catching up that people kept not voting to go to nart house and chill with boruto and himawari. Boruto got a lot better after we beat him and himawari was always cool. Plus Hinata is awesome and I want to see more of mini writing her.Next time mini does omakes I wanna ask him to write one up of Naruto inviting us to eat diner with his family. Would be cool. And plausible too.
Oh fuckWaifu wars startedBack to the trenchesHopefully my gasmask will save me from the shit taste gas
>>2091690>Nyoko is a foreigner and a princess and has a serious "hollier than thou" thing going on. Everything with her is just a whole can of worms we don't wanna openNigga please, Nyohohohohoko is second best girl behind Mari. It's a distant second, but it's still second.
Yasu best girlShe is tall and swoleOther girls can't compete
>>2091794Himawari is best girlShe is smol and cuteOther girls can't compete
>>2091794She's only tall because everyone else hasn't hit puberty yet. Same for swole as the hormones do help muscle growth. Mari will likely be just as swole and stacked by timeskip. And much less of a bitch.
>>2091794reminder that yasu is like 4 years old than us.and also a total bitch
>>2091806Tall, swole, and older. The trifecta.
>>2091810>Tall, swole and olderI have a better waifu for you Tsunade
>>2091813Tsunade status: doesn't even liftAlso is a bit too much olderMaybe more than a bitThat would be downright creepy
Rather waifu Sakura than yasu
>>2091822>was never into sarada like she thought>was into her mom the whole....I'm not against this honestly
>>2091829>cucking sasukeIt does have its draws
>>2091832He needs to be around to be cuckedShe's basically a widow except that her husband still breathes, but never in the same dimension as her.
>>2091429That's amazing, though incredibly true to the generic shinobi not counting Aizenface.I know our "thing" is being generic looking and forgettable, but we've gone through 69 threads and experienced so much already I think we've kind of outlived that a bit, I find that picture lacking in gear and proof of our accomplishments as an underdog.I put forth my own Takeshi: with the tiger pelt, the youthful suit gifted by Lee we had customized, as well as the wakizashi we've taken to using, plus goggles we got from Tenten for eye protection.I give you all, a Takeshi ready for action, stop the waifu skirmishing and cuck plans and witness the fruits of your labor
>>2091864Head looks weirdDesign kinda looks like a ninja turtleBut your critics are true and your ideas show promise
>>2091800Honestly, Mari'll probably be less swole gymrat and more lean muscle compared to Yasu.
>>2091864weird, also a tanto is much smaller
>>2091879>Head looks weirdHuh, might be I overdid it with the top of the head, pulling it down should fix it.>Design kinda looks like a ninja turtleThat's kind of unavoidable considering the Leaf village Chunin jacket color being green.>>2091890>weirdThat's vague, is it the head for you as well?>also a tanto is much smallerDon't we use a wakizashi with the Jet Sheath though? I know we've got a tanto and that's pretty much a dagger, but QM's been describing the use of a wakizashi when we use the sheath
>>2091898It pinballed back and forth, it's supposed to be a tanto but Mini called it a wakizashi a couple times.
>>2091903I mean a tanto jet-sheath sounds kinda useless doesn't it?Also the pastebin calls it a wakizashi so that's what I'm going with.
Can we all agree on one thing?Takeshi's puberty is gonna begin during training. We do NOTHING with that if we have and intra-timeskip decisions or vignettes, even if there's girls around, okay?Have all the waifus on even footing post-skip.Incidentally, do we know what Mari's elemental nature is? I forget, so... Not related to waifu stuff, just wondering what sort of weapon-based elemental releases she'll learn or cook up.
>>2091898The hair looks really chuuni. Our hair doesn't cover half our face.I think mini is confused on what a wakazashi is. He's flip flopepd many time on what he calls it. But he originally gave us a Tanto and then we had tenten make a smaller version of her prototype for out tanto. So I'm sticking with tanto.>>2091911Kakashi fought with one just fine.
>>2091926well yeah Takeshi is training only atm, and given it's either sauce the ahrdass or anruto "whaddayamean you don't haven enough chakra to fly a starship to the moon and back" Uzumaki we'll be focusing on it.>Incidentally, do we know what Mari's elemental nature is? Most of her tuff is gentle fist style or weapon jutsu based around the gentle fist styleNever came up.
>>2091926Agreed. We need to focus on GITTING GUD during the timeskip.
>>2091926>Incidentally, do we know what Mari's elemental nature is?I assume she has a natural proclivity towards fire seeing as both her parents demonstrated at least decent to great control of it when they decided to actually use jutsu with elemental natures.
>>2091939Did we ever find out the natures of ten ten and Neji?
>>2091429I really like the art style and look of this one but the design is a bit generic
>>2091879>>2091890>>2091903>>2091911Here's some quick fixing with the shape of the head, plus with the confusion with the blade, I just went ahead and reshaped it twice, one closer to a tanto, the other a bit longer.Anyway, the whole thing without the quick and dirty patching took me quite a while, so I'm calling it out of tiredness, even though I'm not quite happy with part of the hair.This doesn't have to be Takeshi's set appearance, everyone pictures the protagonist a little different, just thought I'd throw my hat in on the drawfagging.
>>2091950Neji has fire, water, and earth nature chakra.Ten-Ten's chakra natures were never really shown, outside of having proficiency in fire and wind release jutsu while using a giant fan.
>>2092017When was Nejis shown?
>>2092045No idea, I'm just going off his wiki article.
>>2091961Honestly I like the over all look to it. Personally the only things for me is the hair over the eye, I see the vest as more like the ones from boruto (but that's juat me), and the goggles look more like an eyemask than actual eye protection. Plus I'm pretty sure takeshi wears gloves but I might be remembering wrong.
>>2092045The databooks reveal a lot of those.
Jesus christ, guys, I thought there was an update but it's just a ludicrously long-winded discussion.
>>2093405WELCOME TO BORUTO QUEST
>>2093437HERE'S YOUR HIATUS SURVIVAL KIT
>>2093456Look, I survived the Prequel hiatus.8 months for Boruto quest is nothing for me.
>>2093708>Waiting literally years for sad catFor what purpose?
>>2093711We waited almost a year for more glorified Naruto fanfiction.We're not really one to talk.
>>2093713Yeah but at least this fanfiction has some forward momentum, how often has Prequel pulled a two steps forward two steps back?
GANG GANGLOOK THAT THESE BEAUTIFUL BABY BADASSESWoke up at like 3am, and couldn't sleep. So I decided the best use of my time was to draw.Pardon if our boy Kichiro is looking a little under-designed. I need to come up with a better outfit for him than "Generic Ninja Pants", and a wife beater.If you have anything better, or remember an in quest description then hit me up.
I've been reading through the archives, and come to realize 2 things.1) I fucking love Kichiro. His ninja dream of being rich, and having a huge family is the fucking greatest. I really hope we see more of his family at some point.2) No on has archived the past two threads.
>>2095223Someone archived the last thread, they just forgot to tag it as Boruto Quest.
>>2095223Just use 4 plebs. When you archive this one post a link to the 4plebs archive of last on in the description
God damn, I just remembered that we still need to fight Sadara.Hopefully we can challenge her to a spar before the timeskip, it will be the best test of our strength before we leave considering she is a natural counter to most of our shit.Her eyes see right past most of our best moves, and everthing else we do she does just as good if not better.Also I need her to be confirmed for the Takeshibowl, and the best way to a ninja girls heart, is to beat her ass in combat.
>>2095584Sarada m8 not SadaraAnd in a fight she would ruin us. Far stronger than us, faster than us with her eyes, immune to genjutsu which is our bread and butter, and knows far more ninjutsu than we do. Only thing we MIGHT have on her is poison and ninja tools, and since she'd a medi-nin poison won't do much.
>>2095758Well, we can attempt to out taijutsu herNot sure how that would go
>>2095767The sharingan would drop us like ten pounds of shit in a five pound bag, the three legendary eyes are too stronk.Maybe if we had a kid with Mari or Himawari, they'd stand a chance.
>>2095772Sharingan isn't totally invincibalLook at how Lee BTFO sause during their match before the exams startedThough sarada may be able to just dumpster us anyways cause boruto kids are op
I want a friendly match between Sarada and Takeshi just to see how it would go.Of course it wouldn't really tell us much because Takeshi only really does well when it's do or die, but it would be fun
>>2095767Taijutsu MIGHT have worked if she didn't have her mom's BS super strength. between the speed boost her eyes get and her strength? We'd be screwed.>>2095784It's she is unbeatable, Boruto very clearly did beat her. The issue is she nulls a great deal of our best and surpasses us in the rest. She also won't start slow against us like literally everyone else did. SHe'd hit us with her best before we could get ours set up properly because she knows how bad we are with prep time.>>2095814not specifically true considering how we sparred with Shikadai.
>>2095843it's not she is unbeatable*
Maybe we could use ninja wire? If we somehow managed to tie her up, she wouldn't have the leverage to use her absurd strength.
>>2095865she would notice it with her sharingan.
>>2095865Well if we go with the theory that she'd open with the chididori, tripping her up in to something like a chakra scaple to her stomache is our only option
>>2095584>>2095758>>2095767>>2095772Unless I'm mistaken, the Sharingan counters only visual genjutsu. The first, paralytic stage of the genjutsu with the bell should work fine since that's completely auditory and tactile. And you can use genjutsu to just blast her with auditory stimulus, completely overload her like standing next to a jet engine. I've always wondered why that tactic wasn't utilized in the series. And if we can start branching out with boil release more we can come up with some tricks.>>2095784Lee was only able to do that because his physical stats blew Sasuke's out of the water. We are at a disadvantage in that regard when compared to Sarada.
use tear gas on her or something to irritate her eyhes.
>>2095875>Unless I'm mistaken, the Sharingan counters only visual genjutsu.Mini has said straight up any genjutsu we have will not work on her. The bells and false sound was included on this. sadly>>2095882need to make it and hit her with it first.>>2095874>Wanting to get close the electric fuck you blade.let's not.
>>2095882Its a "friendly spar" though. We can't do anything too bad, if we could go all out we could hide and throw poisoned senbon at her eyes.
>>2095772Well that's half the idea, Sarada is like the optional end game boss of this arc.One final test of our skills, before the timeskip.Hell, we have more options against, Shozuku than her.Win or Lose, it will be a good lesson for the boy, and it will be one hell of a fight.
>>2095875No it nullifys all genjutsuand Lee beat sasuage by straight up out statting the absolute shit out of him. Doesn't matter if you can see if you body can't react in time.
Honestly, I think our best bet would be if we could somehow lure her into a wire trap.
And i think in a fight with salad our only option is tear gas and spamming sendon while she's blind. Maybe with clones in addition to confuse her hearing.
>>2095895What other chioce do we have?If we don't get close she'll just spam fire balls which will hit us eventually or just tire us out until she can hit us with a hitFirst blood is key to the match upMaybe use our old turn into a fly trick?
>>2095909she'd see it>>2095912Mist jutsu she can't see through
>>2095914Well there you go. Mist Jutsu, set up the wire trap, lure her in and spring it.
>>2095919She'd still be really cautious and she can still see a few feet like normal eyes. it's unlikely someone like her would just fall for a simple wire trap. I reccomend starting with hidden mist jutsu and then dropping some tear gas canisters, then putting on a gas mask. Proceed to spam senbon until she's a pin cushion.
>>2095932>it's unlikely someone like her would just fall for a simple wire trapIt was unlikely that we'd be able to take down Mari with a simple genjutsu. It's a simple tactic that she is unlikely to predict, mainly because we've never done something like it before. We wouldn't be pulling something new out of our ass, she'd expect that. Having it be so simple is what makes the trick deceptive.If she's distracted by something while we're luring her into the trap, she'd be far less likely to notice the wires.
Speaking of which. We should speak to tenten about tear gas.
>>2095932>>2095914The problem with opening with mist jutsu is that if she just rushes forward with a chididori or shoots out a fire ball we're fuckedWe will start out on the defensive in this matchWe need to plan around that
>>2095956why? it only take a second and we can dodge away right after. Plus she's super cautious and unlikely to just rush in immediately. Rushing right at an enemy who's casting a jutsu is a foolhardy thing to do.
>>2095956What if we converted the mist jutsu with boil release? There was already talk from before about boil base mist jutsu and it's terrifying applications, if we could dilute it into a weaker, more balanced solution to act as both a cover and a pseudo tear gas to irritate her eyes. The main problem we'd have to deal with is both practicing the converted mist and training our boil to make variations beyond the warcrime levels of pure base takeshi can form.
>>2096174>What if we converted the mist jutsu with boil release?Literally our first jutsu. the acid nulling one.
If you need your teacher to prepare, are there certain things that could help more? Like learn new abilities or other strategies? And the enemy fighting style of the enemy is? What needs to be done though is to figure out who the enemy is. Then kick ass with the specialized tactics against them.
>>2096174Oh ye we're gonna do that eventually. Up the ph of it so much that it's basic enough to melt flesh. Melting Mist Jutsu.
>>2096182While talking about Boil release jutsus here's a few simple ones i've come up withThese would all have a high enough ph to melt flesh:>Melting Mist Jutsu>Soap Bullet Jutsu>Soap Bomb Jutsu>Soap dragon JutsuThese wouldn't:>Soap Layer Jutsu (cover an object/person in a thin layer of slippery soap, various uses but could also nulify limited acid attacks)>Soap Coat Jutsu (cover something in a hard/thicker layer of soap, only real use is near totally neutralizing acid jutsus. But it would counter then very hard)ideas? additions? we're gonna want to start planning things for the timeskip.
>>2096182No, using the mist fog jutsu with boil release. You're thinking of the acid nullification ball that comes out of our mouth. I'm talking about the jutsu where fog comes off of our body and covering the area, it's different.
>>2096243if I'm remembering right, we can straight up make chemical compounds with this like ethanol.>Alchoholic Mist JutsuAlso, just figure out how to make Chlorine Gas. Ya'll talking about war crimes this is what you want.
>>2096245Nah he's right. We created acid nulification by comboing a Fire sign/chakra to our Mist jutsu. But we should be able to alter it further is we want. Mini said we could turn our Hidden Mist jutsu into a melting mist by adding boil to it later on.
>>2096245>You're thinking of the acid nullification ball that comes out of our mouthNo it's literally designed to be a mist.>>2096243Bubble clones, you hit them and they go pop.
>>2096256oh shit, great idea!Get saruda drunk as fuck in a fight.
>>2096265Actually, it would neutralize her ability to use fire.
>>2096269could it get her drunk with time though?It'd be such a classic Takeshi moment to beat an over powered opponent in such a subtle way
>>2096256Ohh good idea. Ima keep adding to and changin that list.While talking about Boil release jutsus here's a few simple ones i've come up withThese would all have a high enough ph to melt flesh:>Melting Mist Jutsu>Soap Bullet Jutsu>Soap Bomb Jutsu>Soap dragon JutsuThese wouldn't:>Soap Layer Jutsu (cover an object/person in a thin layer of slippery soap, various uses but could also nulify limited acid attacks)>Soap Coat Jutsu (cover something in a hard/thicker layer of soap, only real use is near totally neutralizing acid jutsus. But it would counter then very hard)>Alcoholic Mist Jutsu (many extremely varied and deadly uses, No sane Fire user would cast flame jutsu while inside of it)>Water Destruction Jutsu (Certain powerful basic compounds will literally separate the Hydrogen and oxygen of water upon being introduced) (Destroy a water attack coming at you and then immediately follow up with Great Fireball jutsu for a massive explosion)>Bubble Clone Jutsu (Clones that explode in a POP of concussive force when destroyed)Also gonna point out that many of these have been confirmed by mini as possible before.ideas? additions? we're gonna want to start planning things for the timeskip.
>>2096274anon. pure ethanol killsrubbing alcohol is only 90% pure, think about what 100% would do inside a human body. Rubbing alcohol will start to dissolve flesh after a few minutes.
>>2096276That water senbon technique?Do that but BoilPhoenix flower jtusu replace with alkali shot jutsu (highly reactive base)
>>2096283the second one is kinda cover in Soap Bullet jutsu
>>2096276We should also start learning how to create acids with the boilAt that point we have a huge ramge of chemical attacks we can do
>>2096276Ohh good idea. Ima keep adding to and changin that list.While talking about Boil release jutsus here's a few simple ones i've come up withThese would all have a high enough ph to melt flesh:>Melting Mist Jutsu>Soap Bullet Jutsu>Soap Bomb Jutsu>Soap Dragon Jutsu>Soap Senbon Jutsu (upon penetration or being blocked they revert into their corrosive base form)These wouldn't:>Soap Layer Jutsu (cover an object/person in a thin layer of slippery soap, various uses but could also nulify limited acid attacks)>Soap Coat Jutsu (cover something in a hard/thicker layer of soap, only real use is near totally neutralizing acid jutsus.

>>2096295Soap meltsAlkali explodesVARIETY!>>2096305Maybe a jutsu to rapidly eat away a body (or fucked up jashinist?) cleans evidence away.maybe soap string jutsu? Sticks to someone and binds them, if they break the surface cohesion it go for broke on their flesh?
>>2096281Well, we could just water it down slightly.
>>2096318dunno about alkalis we'll have to ask miniWhile talking about Boil release jutsus here's a few simple ones i've come up withThese would all have a high enough ph to melt flesh:>Melting Mist Jutsu>Soap Bullet Jutsu>Soap Bomb Jutsu>Soap Dragon Jutsu>Soap Senbon Jutsu (upon penetration or being blocked they revert into their corrosive base form)>Soap String Jutsu (a Sticky Binding rope/string that when broken reverts into it's corrosive form)These wouldn't:>Soap Layer Jutsu (cover an object/person in a thin layer of slippery soap, various uses but could also nulify limited acid attacks)>Soap Coat Jutsu (cover something in a hard/thicker layer of soap, only real use is near totally neutralizing acid jutsus.

>>2096319That's probably something we could do on the spot. Showing off our Alcohol Creation Jutsu (watered down of course) with a night of drinking with Kichiro (and any other friends we can drag along) post timeskip when?
>>2096336Glycerin trap Jutsu, Since glycerin is in soap we later the field with it, then introduce a nitro and a sharp motion, BOOM time.
>>2096358How would that work? would we have to activate it?
>>2096336Maybe something like bubble from the pokemon cartoon(shoots out a stream of bubbles, but instead of being made of water they'd be made of soap and contain noxious gasses.
>>2096364I mean yeah we would. I was thinking one drop of chakra enhanced nitro applied to the glycerin and then boom. Closest thing I could think of was that Quincy trap Uryu used in bleach. But less hassle or set up.
>>2096336Oh also general training to reach jounin minimumAnd up our owl social links
>>2096372so like, what the point in not just shooting a stream of noxious chemicals?>>2096379but wouldn't it explode immediately? need to create a barrier between them and then a way to break that barrier when it's needed>>2096382Sasuke will not let us neglect that stuff. Plus we'll have boruto and Ai and Roku to spar with.
>>2096393>but wouldn't it explode immediately?the Glycerin would not, at least not until the nitro is applied. Just toss a tube or use a jutsu to trigger it.
>>2096397hmm. Maybe put a drop of nitro wrapped in soap inside of a bubble of glycerin? Leave them as exploding traps?We'll have to ask if we could make them activatable on command though. I dont think it's ever really exactly explained what it is they do when ninja "activate" things like explosive tags and other random shit by holding up the one hand and looking really intensely.
>>2096393>so like, what the point in not just shooting a stream of noxious chemicals?So that we don't accidentally inhale before it gets to our enemy.
>>2096412I assume that not really a massive issue, sasuke doesn't burn his mouth on his flame. We'll have to ask mini about it though.
>>2096409I was thinking more soak an area in glycerin then apply the nitro via glass tube or jutsu to activate boom time.
>>2096421hmm, how stable is glycerin? and doesn't it need ot be a standing amount to explode? I kinda figured it wouldn't work if it's all soaked into the ground
>>2096429it's stable until nitro is applied.
>>2096438but would it explode if it was soaked into dirt?
How to beat a Sarada 101: Disable the eyes; she can't use her cheating eyes if she can barely keep them open for a second.In case there's no way to acquire tear gas or the lesser pepper spray, then perhaps a healthy dose of dust, mud, or simply finely grounded chili peppers should do the trick.Sarada's been shadowrunning ever since we started moving up in the world, she's expecting trickery from all sides, something we can play up by deploying our usual tactics to lure her into more paranoia when she can see right through it, she won't want to believe that the guy who beat Boruto, won the Chunin Exams and made Chunin before everyone else is that much of a scrub, but the paranoia! it could be a trick, luring her into a false sense of security so that we can pull the rug right from under her and take the win like every other fight she saw us win!Then, when the opportunity presents itself we'll charge her head on, she won't expect it, she won't expect the only guy to keep up with Shikadai in battlefield keikaku to be so retarded, capitulating on her surprise we'll flicker right up to her and deploy our super secret "Uchiha killer" technique: Pocket Sand no JutsuTake her sight, follow with poison senbon, then dropkick her right in the ovaries press.
>>2096452>follow with poison senbonwill not work she can null it like rokuro could.
>>2096452This anon gets it.
>>2096452its perfect! she'll never see it coming!
Goddamn there is a shitload of postsI'll be around to bit for questions and whatnot if anyone has any
>>2096477who is your waifu?
>>2096462Poison could work if we stay hidden.Sure she can remove it, but that takes time and chakra. So if we KEEP poisoning her then she would have to waste little bit of chakra every time.It's not as efficient as having it stick, but it does open her up to attacks, due to her having to stop and remove the poison each time.
>>2096477Thoughts on these?While talking about Boil release jutsus here's a few simple ones i've come up withThese would all have a high enough ph to melt flesh:>Melting Mist Jutsu>Soap Bullet Jutsu>Soap Bomb Jutsu>Soap Dragon Jutsu>Soap Senbon Jutsu (upon penetration or being blocked they revert into their corrosive base form)>Soap String Jutsu (a Sticky Binding rope/string that when broken reverts into it's corrosive form)These wouldn't:>Soap Layer Jutsu (cover an object/person in a thin layer of slippery soap, various uses but could also nulify limited acid attacks)>Soap Coat Jutsu (cover something in a hard/thicker layer of soap, only real use is near totally neutralizing acid jutsus.

>>2096477When are we going to have that spar with Salad?
>>2096484blood loss would also be a factor at that point too. Have ot mix up with senbon and kunai though
>>2096462Won't it be a bit tough to do the poison removal jutsu while your eyes are full of sand and there's a guy dropkicking you in the sides?I was under the impression that jutsu needed a bit of time to do properly.If that's how it is, then while she's distracted rubbing her eyes, we use the jet sheat to Iai slash part of her clothes, "Strip" her of the will to fight, if you will
>>2096477What do you think of some of these plans to deal with Salad?
>>2096495Kunoichi are expected to be lewd to kill their targets, so clothing loss will only piss her, her mom and her dad off.As for poison removal? She's good enough to null it quickly or isolate it to negate effect>>2096484point, but given her efficiency it won't cost much unless we let is percolate a lot.
>>20964521 problem with that.She wears glasses.Wait... could that be it? What's the most efficient way to fog up someone's glasses?
>>2096477I have a few1) Cast Sheet progress?2) What the fuck does Kichiro wear?3) Will you plan on doing more omake anytime soon? Maybe to fill the void the second hiatus will bring.4) Sarada? Sarada fight when? Matter a fact, why isn't Boruto and pals going on this next mission with us?
>>2096504>Kunoichi are expected to be lewd to kill their targetsWhen as this ever been the case in Naruto world?As far as I know, Konuichi in this world aren't trained in that, and if they are, they won't teach it at the academy while the girls aren't even going through puberty yet, unless those "flower arrangement" classes are a cover up for lewd training.
>>2096516If Omakes are being brought up I would like to suggest Naruto inviting us to eat dinner with him and his family one night.
>>2096518>unless those "flower arrangement" classes are a cover up for lewd training.you tell me
>>2096524I would also love this, yeah.>>2096525>Reminds that in this timeline Anko is still super fucking hot. Besides that Anko was never very overtly sexy. She was Sexy.But she never really used it to fight.
>>2096525What about her?What does Anko prove about the academy curriculum or what's expected of female ninja?Nigga, besides the way she dresses, she's not even seductive, more like sadistic, and she never really used her lewd body to her advantage in a fight, besides she was the first victim of Pedosnek when she was fresh off the academy, molestation victims that young usually present more lascivious behavior later in life
>>2096549>But she never really used it to fight.because most ninja are not going to get thrown of their game in a srs bsns fight by flashing your tits. it's best used to take emn by surprise.
>>2096477Here's some drawfagging>>2091429>>2091961>>2095143
>>2096563>>2096561No, seduction is not for combat. It's for infiltration and intel gathering. and since the show did fucking none of that we didn't see it.
>>2096570But that's just it anon, it's never brought up or shown, not even implied, you can't just assume kunuichi honeypot tactics are a common thing in this setting, let alone that 12 yr old genins would be trained in it.
>>2096561I was just using that as an excuse to post Anko
>>2096593You are right But I'll be damned if Ninja sex ed doesn't have both a Eugenics, and weaponized sexuality section.>Slutty Ninja Quest when?
>>2096515>Wait... could that be it? What's the most efficient way to fog up someone's glasses?At that point you might as well try to knock them off or break them.Who the hell gets in potential fistfights wearing glasses? That's just asking to get glass shards in your eyes after one good punch.>>2096570>No, seduction is not for combat. It's for infiltration and intel gathering.>World where ninja can hide in water puddles, underground or stick to ceilings, cast illusions to hide in plain sight or summon animals to do the gathering for them.>World where even the most basic ninja genin, boy or girl, can transform into animals and other people, including 10/10 women, small birds or rodents.>Needing to specially train girls in the art of seduction when these things are much better for infiltration and intel gathering.Yeah nah, this isn't feudal Japan here, there isn't really a need to have konuichi pose as concubines or whores to assassinate someone at their most vulnerable.>>2096605Carry on then
>>2096614it's not about that, it's because people always think with their dicks. Seduce them to get inside the castle, or get some intel, or even just to kill them after they pass out
>>2096614>>2096515Sarada takes her glasses off to fight. Since she doesn't need them with her Sharingan.
>>2096605>Who the hell gets in potential fistfights wearing glasses?Sarada and her NOT!Mother that's who.Also, I like to see us TRY to land a fist to her face without getting blown to the other side of town with a punch of her own.
>>2096625Plus that probably wouldn't matter anyway. She wears glasses, not goggles, it wouldn't be difficult for the mist slip through. Honestly it would be pretty easy.
>>2096625So her Sharingan's always active during a fight? If I'm remembering right, using it drains your chakra right? So, we could potentially outlast her.
>>2096642she's an Uchiha. So fuck-off Huge levels of chakra
>>2096623But that's the thing>Seduce them to get inside the castleWhy would a ninja make themselves known like this even when undercover? They wouldn't just let someone inside a castle just because they're a hot piece of ass, it's way easier to just transform into a rodent or small bird and get inside unnoticed through nooks and crannies or windows and then transforming into either a guard or one of the help or just remain hidden. >or get some intelWhy, when you can just transform into a potted plant or cast a basic genjutsu to be completely hidden in plain sight and eavesdrop? Or simply remain hidden until the target is alone and then just siphon the intel straight from their mind without chance of lies with interrogation jutsu?>or even just to kill them after they pass outRead this again, mate, and then apply it to a world where assassins can move short distances in the blink of an eye, kill in an instant, can create tangible clones that can do the same, and have a myriad of other literal magic up their sleeve devised and perfected to kill as effectively as possible, and tell me how going through the trouble of seducing the target, fucking them and then waiting for them to fall asleep is in any way something common or the better alternative?I get where you're coming from, I really do, but what you're proposing is more in tune with more down to Earth ninja, in a more realistic albeit still fantastical setting, something like Tenchu or pic related that actually has a seduction mechanic in the gameplay.But in a setting like Naruto, it not only makes no sense, it actually breaks suspension of disbelief when these "Ninja" are more akin to wizards and act more like Samurai while shooting lighting bolts from their hands, and fireballs from their ass.
>>2096567That's not a drawing nigga, that's a slap-dash edit of a Kakashi scribble and a panel of Aizen.
>>2096676probably used for when a ninja is on retainer to keep someone alive but the target is still a womanizing shit. Rats and vermin are the first target of infiltration prevention and most basic jutsus are easily ferreted out .Granted this was back when the powerlevel was probably a lot lower and women were not regarded as an actual threat.
>>2096676They wouldn't just let someone inside a castle just because they're a hot piece of ass, you underestimate the power of horny dudes
When there are so many shitposts you think Mini started again lol
>>2096737He said he was gonna answer some of our questions. That was like an hour ago though.He won't be running again until Monday.
>>2096753I think I scared him off with my Boil jutsu list
>>2096753You cannot convert me saradafagI have my eyes set on the one true waifu
>>2096697>probably used for when a ninja is on retainer to keep someone alive but the target is still a womanizing shit.Why? If their life is in danger why would they have someone based solely on looks to hold their life in their hands? And even then, in this scenario seduction is not needed nor would it ever be a requirement: retainers are bodyguards, personal hitmen, not entertainers.>Rats and vermin are the first target of infiltration prevention and most basic jutsus are easily ferreted outThere's other options even if that were true. Birds or domestic animals for example. Besides that, most targets wouldn't even be ninja, how would they know, and even if they were then by the same token of "most basic jutsus being easily ferreted out", they'd be able to detect a honeypot when they see it, not only that but shinobi in Naruto have a prohibition on women, sure some break the rules, but then those who break the rules are seen as trash, it's better to be safe and avoid indulgence than risk a stab in the back anyway.Anyway you spin it, this stuff just isn't plausible in the Naruto setting, neither low power level or high power level.>>2096713>you underestimate the power of horny dudesYou underestimate the power of not wanting to throw away your life for a one night stand, you don't think there wouldn't be rules over bringing women into the barracks or anywhere inside the castle without proper authorization? At the risk of the Lord and his family that live in said castle?Going to a brothel during off hours is much safer than risking punishment, execution, seppuku over being responsible for the death of your lord or a fate worse than death (Getting your cock and balls cut off as punishment)
>>2096482nyoko>>2096485looks cool, I'll think about it more later. At a glance seems like a bunch of neat ideas though>>2096499she won't be easy to deal with in the face of any plan>>2096516I've made some progress but it's big, I'll post what I have next thread.Kichiro usually wears a T-shirt or tank top underneath of a dark blue vest. What's an omake? Is that ippo?Boruto's squad is a part of the reinforcements for your mission, so they'll be arriving after your job is done.>>2096567Yes, it's all wonderful. Thanks everyone>>2096760I went to get some pizza and almost forgot
The only way Sarada will stop being shit in my eyes is if she changes her family name to "Haruno" and actually does shit unlike her mother.
>>2096561>molestation victims that young usually present more lascivious behavior later in life>Sarada refuses to not dress like a hookerI think Sakura has some explaining to do about what she's been doing with Sasuke and Karin's child.
Mini, how long do you plan to run your other quest before returning for part 2 of this one?
>>2096783>What's an omake?the character interaction write ups you sometimes do, like the fight with boruto
>>2096783It'd be cool if we could get a scene with Naruto inviting us to eat dinner with his family
>>2096789>Basing you options of character on the show instead of the Quest. Shame on you senpai.Sarada has been just as good as any other girl and is a totally viable candidate for waifu.>>2096783>Kichiro usually wears a T-shirt or tank top underneath of a dark blue vest. That is a very slight adjustment.Omake is "extra story".I was asking if you would do some writeins.
>>2096783When's the fight though Mini?
>>2096783>What's an omake?>Omake means extra in Japanese. Its primary meaning is general and widespread. It is used as an anime and manga fandom term to mean "extra or bonus."Basically any side stuff or filler you do.
>>2096829Okay if you want my actual opinion,Ai just seems like a better version of Sarada as far as waifus go.
>>2096829>that back archFuuuck.Who the fuck's in charge of character design for the Boruto manga?Because canon Salad's design is trash, yet all these fanarts of Sarada wearing other clothes, especially Sakura's, that don't make her look like 200% Child prostitute are 10/10, holy shit.IIRC she's not even the only girl that dresses like a hooker and looks like garbage because of it in the manga too.How much influence does Kishimoto have on this? Because I refuse to believe he's behind them, practically his only redeeming factor were the girls he designed, now the sequel manga has plenty of shit.
>>2096852Ehhh.I have similar misgivings with both.They both are intense people who don't like others getting close to them emotionally. They want to do everything on their own, and take it very hard when they fail at even unimportant tasks.If they can learn to relax a little and smile more, I'll reconsider, but until then the Hyuga options win for me on personality and compatibility.
>>2096888Oh yeah no Mari is my pick for the Takeshi bowl for sure with Ai leading at a close second.Yasu and Sarada are fighting for 3rd.Himawari NOT FOR WAIFU.
>>2096888>but until then the Hyuga options win for me on personality and compatibility.>Not including Eugenics in there.If we're going Hyuga, it has to be Himawari so that our kid inherits Byakugan, Naruto tier Chakra plus Takeshi work ethic, diligence and cunning
>>2096898Himawari a best
>>2096898Ai is for friend, so Salad's second for me.Mari's just too good, she's had the most developed and is the only person Takeshi's seen in a romantic light IC.
>>2096912Himawari's a meme.
>>2096919she's not though
>>2096898See, I like Himawari's personality more, but Mari would be the best thematic choice.Their initial botched interactions, Takeshi's attempts at mending that gap, their constant talks over weapons and styles, that date, and so on... It's a perfect "how we met" story.
>>2096852The sass, and desire to overcome her as an insurmountable wall is missing in Ai
Mari is best girl and that fact won't changeNo matter how many sexualized salads you post
>>2096937this is pretty much how i feelThough the interactions and meeting between takeshi are significant, if fewer in the terms of this quest.
>>2096888>They both are intense people who don't like others getting close to them emotionally.And breaking through that cold exterior is what makes pursuing girls like this great, and seeing the girl behind the mask even better.I feel like with girls like Mari, what you see is what you get. There's not much room for depth.With Ai and Sarada building that trust, and love is the sweetest thing in the world to me. Also>>2096898>YasuREALLY NIGGAARE YOU KIDDING ME>>2096915>Mari's just too good, she's had the most developed But doesn't the idea of developing relationship with the other girls interest you at all? Sure Mari seems like the go to girl, but that's cause we spend the most time with her. I'd say give the others for a spin before tunneling straight for Route Lock.>and is the only person Takeshi's seen in a romantic light IC.I actually don't think that's true, but my memory is trash sometimes so i'll just say Takeshi is a young boy and has probably had "funny feelings" about multiple girls by now.>>2096919The only real meme choice is fucking Yasu.Like really niggas, don't do this.
Do we ned to get into the yasu shit again? girl is a straight up cunt who we have had literally 0 positive interactions with. The whole omake of her being a total cunt to us is just a scroll up away.
>>2096951No yeah fuck yasuWe need to get kichiro focused on beating her ass just to prove a point
>>2096951Nope. Mari's the only one who's broken through Takeshi's autistic training mindset. When he slowly realized that he asked her out was the first time he had any funny thoughts about girls.
You all have shit taste. Chocho is #1 Best Girl and no one will be able to topple her from her throne.
>>2096951>REALLY NIGGA>ARE YOU KIDDING MEPersonal bias is a hell of drug.You should see my waifu choices for other shit.Like SJW Universe
>>2096969No one will topple her because she's an Akimichi.Meaning she weighs too much.Just saying.[spoilers] She is cute though, just far too little interaction for Takeshi to get a little slice of Butterfly Pie [/spoilers]
>>2096978Highlight what you want to spoil and hit ctrl+s to automatically spoiler it. Like this.I guess I'm bad at shitposting.
>>2096969Great genetics, she could stand to drop a few pounds though.Or maybe wear better clothing.
>>2096937>>2096950Thing is, that puts pretty much every other candidate at a disadvantage since the quest format limits how much interaction we can get, and Mari just so happens to be the daughter of the owner of the weapon's shop.If we are to use interaction and quality of, as a measure then it goes>Mari>Ai>Sarada>NyokoAnd the rest isn't really even in the running simply because there's no time to interact with them or they require going too much out of our way to do it.And now with the timeskip looming, the already wide gap will only widen. Some of the girls are acquaintance tier still, just because we went on a mission with them means nothing when there's barely any interaction beyond exchanging pleasantries.>>2096969>Calls people out on shit taste>Considers an overweight black chick that's always stuffing her face and is from a clan of disgusting expansion fetishists the bestShe's just too heavy to topple from the supposed throne, anon.Besides, we've only had 2 interactions with her. 1 we said hello when we met her team at the BBQ restaurant, and the other was during our birthday where she gave us some food coupons
>>2096958>>2096972I'm down for any waifu besides fucking Yasu.Hell while I personally fine Mari boring as hell, I won't deny she's a pretty fitting waifu.But motherfucking Yasu?Really?>>2096969We barely know Chocho senpai. It's not happening.>>2096983>Akimichi>Losing poundsIf you want a skinny girl, go for Ai.Akimichi is BBW only.
>>2096988we've had more quality and quantity of interactions with himawari than nyoko
>>2096994>BBWLike chubby or obese?Because BBW seems to shift between the two at random.
>>2096988>>2096994I never realized waifus were such a serious topic in Boruto Quest.Or is this some 4th level shitposting I haven't managed to reach yet?
>>2097002bit of both
>>2096988>Thing is, that puts pretty much every other candidate at a disadvantage since the quest format limits how much interaction we can get, and Mari just so happens to be the daughter of the owner of the weapon's shop.See this nigga gets it.You can put yourself in a box guys, you gotta give the other girls room to breath.Just cause one girl has all the character development right now, doesn't mean the other girls won't turn out to be more fitting once we get to know them.
>>2096967He was embarrassed about it but that was it, it's confirmed that takeshi just straight up hasn't really had any romantic feelings or even thought about any of the girls. He's just too young to really get it, mostly to push waifuing to second half when he's a teenager. Though on that note I'm not against mari, just gonna wait to see how second half goes before I start taking sides.
Sumire is best girl.
Mari best girl.Anyone still have those pictures of her in her mesh shirts? mmmfDid ino have a girl?.
>>2096996Since when?I don't even like Nyoko, but besides going on a few missions with Hima, and we did save one another at different occasions, beyond that, there's nothing.Sure, Hima's gift was the best of the bunch, but we've never actually met her outside of missions or errands or spent any time with her.We've gone out of our way to meet the snow princess when we didn't have to, had some brief back and forth, she even showed interest in our abilities and we agreed to stay in touch.
>>2097017Nope she and Sai had a boy. A trappy boy but sill.
>>2097017>Did ino have a girl?Inojin is cute like a girl.
>>2097016What about Misuki?
>>2097015>As you look at her, your mind races with confusion. What's going on? Why does she seem all flustered, suddenly? Does she really have a crush on you that you didn't know about? Oh man, she's still talking and you weren't listening. To be fair, she seems like she's nervously rambling a little bit. Now that you look, it's actually pretty cu->When you step outside, you realize your heart's beating quickly. But the pressure and tension suddenly fades and flips, and elation fills you up as you realize you really did set up your first date. Of course, it kind of happened by accident, and you weren't even really thinking of it as one. Neither was Mari, according to what she said. But her mom, and the way she acted..Yup. No romantic feelings whatsoever.
>>2097040Inojin is like Mitsuki but better.
>>2097001Nigga you look at a picture of ChoCho and the rest of her clan and you tell me what i meant.>>2097002Little bit of ALittle bit of BI do want got get a god waifu for our boy, but you really have to have a sense of humor about it due to all the shit taste around here. >>2097021>but besides going on a few missions with Hima, and we did save one another at different occasions, beyond that, there's nothing.You are underestimating how much all those little events add up. Sure we've had a few long talks with Nyoko, but we talked to Hima more often. Not that any of that means much considering the about of time Mari has been around, and that we've spent with Ai and Sarada.
As long as our waifu isn't from the fucking Stone, I'm happy, it's happened twice. I'll get back to catching up now. Unless there's a really good Stone waifu I'm unaware of.
You know what, I say we fuck Hanzo's mom for moon powers.
>>2097051But imagine.Snake docking.>>2097055Not really seeing that sense of humor, but I'll take your word for it.
>>2097069we're trying to keep our dickNot have it in a box by her nightstand
>>2097070 TOO MUCH TEETH!
>>2097076The blood only makes it better.
Guys guys, ya'll are forgetting the truest waifu.KayoI bet none of you remember who I'm talking about.
>>2097070>Snake docking.How about you imagine Mind-swap sodomy
>>2097087I see you also remember the Inuzuka girl that's been forgotten even before the 8 month hiatus
>>2097087The Stone's Kage?
>>2097087>KayoHow can I forget Kayo.Our little puppy faced girl.If you think she will get the even a consolation price then I need whatever you smoking.Now here is the REAL challenge. Do any of you remember Chiaki
>>2097097Kayo seemed more like a bro than anything, but we'll see how timeskip affects feelings.
>>2097119Chiaki....Wasn't she that bitchy girl who had wind release? Part of the team with that silent guy and one of our freinds who helped us with senbon and got BTFO by an angry Kicihiro?
By the way, speaking of Kayo, did Mini forget about one of the basic Inuzuka techniques when writing Kayo combat?Mini just had her spam Fang over Fang with her pupper, but he never mentions the hilarious setup that went before that technique to make it viable, you guys know what I'm talking about right?The spinning is too disorienting by itself, makes actual aiming and target tracking near impossible, so Inuzuka have their dogs piss themselves everywhere to mark their target so they can track them by smell.DYNAMIC MARKING
>>2097087Damn son, I almost forgot about Chiaki even
>>2097126>>2097149I was right. See her first in thread 17
>>2097126Winner WinnerChicken DinnerYou got it dude. She was a real sly cunt, and ended up getting roasted by Kichiro while she was doing via break dancing.Good times man.Too fucking bad we'll never see that bitch again.>>2097149CASE AND FUCKING POINTMAKE THAT DAMN CAST LIST BOI, YOU NEED IT JUST AS MUCH AS WE DO.
>>2097154It's true I doYou'll see all those characters again at some point, as well. Well, except for one jobber who was a part of the Mist squad. He's dead now. But he wasn't important.
>>2097164When's that Solid Snake dude coming back?He was tight.[Spoiler] Is he gonna take the Jonin exam with us?[/spoiler]
>>2097166WOW THANKS 4CHAN FUCKING GODDAMN SENSITIVE FUCKING FORMATTING SHIT
>>2097170Ctrl+s saves lives and face.
>>2097164Hey question.When you first started writing, did you expect Mari to be the most popular girl, or was that a surprise.
>>2097149I mean, it's hard enough trying to remember all these chink names, but it doesn't help that people can't put names to faces.Anyone notice that having a set picture makes anons gravitate towards them?I doubt anons would have stuck to Mari so hard were it not for the picture some anon posted for a canon appearance.The waifus with the lead all have pictures, the canon girls for obvious reasons, but Mari, Nyoko and even Ai as well.Also mini >>2097146Dynamic Marking, did you forget? I haven't followed shuppuden, let alone Boruto so I don't know if this was also a case of "things Kishimoto forgot existed so they aren't ever brought up again"
>>2097164Did you expect Boruto to have more chapters released and translated by the time you came back?
>>2097179I had thought that dynamic marking was only needed for the big fusion wolf attack, as opposed to the regular version. I might just be forgetting but I'm fairly sure akamaru didn't pee on naruto in their exams>>2097180I've actually never read a chapter of Boruto, I hear it's not fantastic
>>2097177I didn't expect any girl to be popular really, making waifus wasn't a thought of mine until partway through I'd realized how popular they were
>>2097188>I've actually never read a chapter of Boruto, I hear it's not fantasticYeah no it's just kinda middling at best, but hey there's a neat concept thrown around every blue moon that gets shelved immediately.
>>2097188Manga's shit, anime's decent. Ikemoto can't draw humans and all his OCs look like they're from a bad Bleach deviantart.
>>2097179It's much easier to put a name to a face (or a picture in this case) and remember them that way rather than just hear a name and remember it. It's some complicated thing with human psychology. It's also why quests that don't have pictures for their characters usually die off quick - people aren't invested if they can't remember which character is which.
>>2097205You'd think since he designed pic related he might have some talent, but naw.Maybe he's just one of those dudes who gets worse at drawing as time goes on like Toriyama or Tite Kubo.
>>2097179Nyoko has a picture?Since when?>>2097195>making waifus wasn't a thought of mine until partway through I'd realized how popular they wereWell I hope you've adapted since then. As you can see, waifus are like a quarter of the appeal.
>>2097215>It's also why quests that don't have pictures for their characters usually die off quickWhich is exactly why I'm doing a sprite-based quest as they're super easy to edit and make pics for updates with.As soon as I have free time I mean. Cave Story: Mimiga Quest coming never
>>2097227Nyoko is like 5th best. only top 4 get art
>>2097227I think a fa/tg/uy said it best;>"I also give the PCs waifus, because it ties them to the setting. You care about saving your hometown way more, if a witch you've been banging lives there."
>>2097222>Maybe he's just one of those dudes who gets worse at drawing as time goes on like Toriyama or Tite KuboBeing a manga artist is shit. They get 4 or 5 hours of sleep and 3 or 4 hours of free time a week, max. It's no wonder they stopped putting as much effort in as time went on.
>>2097286Oops. Took me a while to notice.>They get 4 or 5 hours of sleep a day
>>2097195Oh, reminder to archive the past two threads.
>>2097222>>2097286Ikemoto was a third assistant.He did literal scrub work, cleaning up Kishimoto's pages, adding minute details, speedlines, detailing the eyes, doing background crowds, putting stars in the sky, that sort of thing.So what if he designed a few characters like Haku, Zabuza or the Third's battle gear? It means nothing because it was during a time when Kishimoto was personally involved in the series and could reel in the trash and narrow stuff down.With Boruto, where Ikemoto is the main artist, and the story is written by somebody else with Kishimoto only getting supervision credits to a series he doesn't really care about anymore besides the cash it makes, he gets to run loose, no leash, the new stuff's all Ikemoto, andit's garbage.>Being a manga artist is shit. They get 4 or 5 hours of sleep and 3 or 4 hours of free time a week, max. It's no wonder they stopped putting as much effort in as time went on.That's defeatist talk. The only times this happens is with mangaka who get popular and start slacking off because the following they've amassed allows them to do this.Not only that but there's plenty of mangaka that actually improve their art as time passes on, like Tsugumomo for example, sure it's a monthly release instead of weekly, but keep in mind this guy doesn't even hire assistants, and there's plenty of weekly manga out there that manage to stay consisted too.It's all about the mindset and talent: if you don't enjoy what you do, if you don't have the skills, as well as the equipment (Digital tools saves artists so much time and effort in comparison, it isn't even a contest) then you should just do it as a hobby, be a doujin artist rather than going pro, this is a strong example of "love what you do and you'll never work a day in your life" deal.
>>2097339>defeatist talkConsidering you're on 4chan too, I doubt either one of us can imagine working every single day a week and only getting 3 hours to relax that week for a decade or more. Sure loving your work means a lot when you say it, but tell me that when work is ALL you do for years.
You think Iruka would mind having us a student some time? We're a normal ass student in comparison to the rest of our generation as well as one of the few people in the village who specialize in water jutsu.
>>2097367I actually really like the idea of Takeshi taking time out to help with the children from time to time.
>>2097391Panties will drop across the village.Nice, humble, skilled, AND nurturing?If he had a bloodline he'd already be drowning in official requests for a clan marriage.
>>2097395Considering our family is the only one with actual knowledge of the Underdog Seal (and applying the damn thing), isn't that something desirable as well?
>>2097423It would be if more people knew about it, I suppose, but I think it was a secret-ish thing?
>>2097423I mean, all someone would have to do is look at our chest to figure it out. Knowledge is not as powerful as Bloodline because Knowledge can be stolen rather easily.The mark of a good clan is on that has both.
>>2097444Time to jack Orochimaru's knowledge of gene therapy then I guess.
>>2097365The "work" isn't very physically taxing, unless you don't even invest in a comfortable workstation.You draw, and you draw and you draw, that's it.It can get mentally taxing, but if you enjoy drawing, then it's not work, is it?You get payed to draw cute girls, chuuni as fuck action scenes and all you have to do is meet a deadline.It takes a certain kind to be a mangaka, a certain mentality so I don't know what's with all the >Considering you're on 4chan too, I doubt either one of us can imagine working every single day a week and only getting 3 hours to relax that week for a decade or more.I just know there's all sorts.You know what the mangaka for Tsugumomo does to unwind? He draws his characters in lewd situations, he's made it a point to have every single female character he creates be nude or lewded at least once in his manga, that's the kind of guy he is, pic related. He also does more drawing than just his manga, he also livestreams his work.

Keeps doing it even when asked not to>When being asked how he can write so much, sying, “If I don’t keep writing, I’ll crash. Like an airplane.”It all depends on the kind of person someone is, and not everyone is cut out for it, despite wanting to do it.
>>2097444Well, a lot of clans marry people in for prestige as much as for talent. This is usually the non-ninja part of the clan making such choices, but at best Takeshi might be a second-pick for a low-to-mid tier non-heir, such as a third daughter or branch family child. However, the better we do the more they might take notice and even may try to offer something just to make sure their political rivals don't get you (and therefore pit you against them).It's all stupid because Takeshi doesn't care for things like that, he's a firm believer in the Will of Fire and will probably ignore such political requests for marriage regardless, unless it's for someone he was interested in anyways.
>>2097462Kamachi is a goddamn computer program, and you can't convince me otherwise
>>2097440It WAS secret until this one no-name rando used it to kick the hokage's son's teeth in during the final round of what's probably the most important televised sporting event in the world.
>>2097501Well, did they KNOW it was from the neat-but-otherwise-unassuming tattoo on his torso? Like, did chakra explode from it or did they just see us get back up?
>>2097501I'm pretty sure only people that could see charka knew what actually happened.To most people we got hit by one of the most OP moves in the ninja game, and stood back up.I'm actually surprised that Sarada didn't question us about it when we talked to her last, then again she has access to some of the family records so maybe she he just looked it up.
>>2097529Oh yeah good pointMaybe if we try to play it off as a secret bloodline seal, we'll get married off to Mari no problem
>>2097501>>2097524>>2097529Irc anyone with chakra seeing or decent sensory ability knew what happened. So most the jonin + and any Hyuuga or Uchiha saw what was up.
>>2097462>The "work" isn't very physically taxing, unless you don't even invest in a comfortable workstation.>You draw, and you draw and you draw, that's it.>You get payed to draw cute girls, chuuni as fuck action scenes and all you have to do is meet a deadline.>It takes a certain kind to be a mangaka, a certain mentality so I don't know what's with all the All of this is just ignoring reality, a person isn't made to work on 3 to 5 hours of sleep for years. 14 years of it affected Kishi so much he said he wasn't even /able/ to draw Naruto when he was asked to. A lot of manga go on hiatus because their artists have bad health from it. Oda's taken breaks from One Piece because working too much made him sick. Tetsuo (Fist of the North Star's mangaka) went blind in one eye from working so much. Tsugomo's also a monthly release, not weekly. The artist must have a lot more free time.
>>2097552I just realized I never said I'm talking about mangas with weekly releases and my entire argument's fucked.I'll get you next time, weird pink-purple ID anon.
Here's my take on Kichiro since I've got a little bit of freetime.Scanner's on the fritz so I had to take a pic with my phone and edit it a bit in GIMP.I chose a Chinese style "vest" as it's kind of tradition for taijutsu focused ninja to have little bit of Chinese influence.
>>2097624Quality stuff hombre.I really like the influx of drawfags around here.
>>2097624Pretty good, the flames are a nice touch keep it up. I always pictured Kichiro shirtless though.
>>2096910>inherits ... work ethic, diligence and cunning>inheriting learned behaviorsAnon, that's not how eugenics work.
>>2097732No but it's how parenting works.Ninja don't just lay eggs and leave the larval ninjalings to fend for themselves.
>>2098320That's pretty much our hokage you're talking about there
>>2098320all the most powerful ninja seem to do it that way
>>2098332Yeah powerful ninja have no parents but what about the happy ones?
>>2098351>ninja>happyOnly the autistic Ninja like Naruto are happy
>>2097017A little late but here you go.
>>2098545Twintails?9/10 points, GG other girls. If she were blonde it would be a perfect hit for me.
>>2098545I was fairly sure Mari had titsImpossible not to with Hyuga genetics.
>>2098592She's only like a year older than us, puberty hasn't finished working its miracles on her yet.When we get back from the timeskip though? Hoo boy.
>>2098656She better, hinata was stacked at 11
>>2098711Truly, Hyuga eugenics programs are amazing.
>>2098711Hinata was also main family. Mari is Branch.
>>2098711She had the beginnings of breasts at 11. Wasn't stacked until the shippuden timeskip which was 5 ish year. Meaning 16. Mari also probably binds her chest like her mom does for better range of motion.
>>2098787girl looked like a C cup at 11
>>2098844that's false. Canon art of her pre shipudden was she was nearly flat as a board.
>>2098759But she's also the kid of BASED Neji, that has to count for something
>>2098880Neji is edgelord-substitute if you don't like Sasuke.He's like Sweet and Low. Still bad for you, but you can feel superior to people who prefer the real thing.
>>2098889Neji became a lot better on the edgelord front after Naruto beat his ass, correct me if I'm wrong but he basically never became important again until he died.
>>2098909Yeah, which basically means... he was only good as an edgelord.I'm mostly teasing though, Ol' spinnyfist is fine as a character.
>>2098909I'm this anon, did my IP change?
>>2098909>>2099056Alright good, my internet flickers pretty constantly and I hate it.
>>2099064my ip has changed 4 times in this threadMy router is plugged into an outlet thats controlled by a switch right in my entryway. So it' gets accidentally shut off all the time.
>>2099102Yeah, usually it's pretty ignorable but sometimes you get the "you aren't the person I was talking to, wow look at these samefags, etc" moments
>>2099225It bothers me when we're sperging about about jutsu and plans and shit in the thread between runs since there's usually only a few people in thread and you try to reference things you've been talking about.
are we ever going to see that solid snake ninja again or did he only exist as a joke?
>>2099862I hope so, guy was great.I hope we get the opportunity to ask him to do us a solid.
>>2099923i want you to know your pun has neither gone unoticed nor unappreciated
>>2099975Seems like an alright dude.His skillset pretty much makes him the boss of the battlefield if he can sneak up on ya.Must feel a bit naked when he's not wearing his gear though.
Posting here as well just so everyone can see.Won't be running tomorrow, have to work late. Tuesday is the new run date. I'll still be posting what I have done of the character index here tomorrow, though.
>>2105216>character indexWell that's something at least.Thanks for the heads up boss
>>2105216ten til you're a lair.
>>2108258I'd only be a liar in certain timezones!It's on the way. Not the whole thing but a portion of the entries. Sorry for these delays, but hey I'm pretty sure I don't work tomorrow. I'll be able to start early.
>>2108265Only time will tell Mini.That said, excited to have a character index so I can stop digging through archived threads for info on certain characters.
