his 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.
>>2109343>his is Boruto Quest,Dam are you so hu gry that you even ate the 'T' from your text?
"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..""Yeah.." you say quietly. Thankfully you've never had to fight in a war zone like that. The closest thing has been the battles at the jashinist recruitment facility, and the conflict you had in the Mist with a small village. Granted for the latter, by the time you arrived more or less all the civilians had already been killed.Taking a deep breath, you look around the group. "Yeah. This could end up going really bad if we're not careful, but, with a team like this then everything should work out fine."
>>2109358The sound of footsteps causes everyone to turn and look. Kichiro and Hanto are walking down the street, as well as Kichiro's little sister tugging along behind them. Her curly bright red hair is as flamboyant as ever. When they're about to pass through the gate, she stops and yells "Good luck everyone!" before running away. You laugh, and wave at your approaching friend and sensei. "Hey guys. What was that about?"Hanto chuckles. "She heard this was a really important mission, so she wanted to give everyone her regards."Kichiro nods. "She's pretty shy usually, so it surprised even me." He rubs his eyes, apparently pretty sleepy still. From what you can see he doesn't seem to be acting any different than usual, despite the declaration of your rivalry last night. Maybe it's just how he always thought of things, and only just then came out and said it. Roku looks around. "The others should be on their way..I'm kind of weirded out that-"Without missing a beat, suddenly a puff of smoke gives way to a boy with thick eyebrows, not too unlike Rock Lee himself. Ollie Chan gives a short salute, before bowing and yelling quite loudly. "I APOLOGIZE FOR MY TARDINESS, I PROMISE THAT I'LL GIVE IT 110% IN THIS NEXT MISSION, AND THAT WE-"Roku puts his hand on his shoulder, saving everyone from the youthful rant that was about to come. "Great, just in time! Now we just need Mirai and Kayo."Is there anything you want to ask anyone, or say before you head out on your mission? >A. No. Skip to their arrival and head out>B. Speak to your team mates until they arriv
>>2109361>>B. Speak to your team mates until they arriv

>>2109361Miniseries, how well can Takeshi dance?
>>21093793.5 speed and 3.5 int. Probably pretty well.
>>2109366>>2109367>>2109370>>2109371>>2109374Rock Lee looks you up and down for a few seconds, his eyes sparkling with interest. You're weirded out for a few moments before finally speaking up. "Something wrong?"He shakes his head. "Nothing at all, Takeshi! I'm just, thinking back to that one moment.." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lw9YNl-B5wkYou blink. "Huh? What do you mean?"Rock Lee fires a punch at your midsection, and your hand shoots down and catches it mid motion. You can feel that he's seriously holding back. Even then, your hand trembles as he presses in before releasing. He grins. "It's only been a year..To you, it probably seems like this has taken forever to get here, but to me, the progress you've made is nothing short of revolutionary." Mari crosses her arms. "It's seriously unfair. If I'd have known it'd be like this, I'd just have slugged you back then." You're confused. Roku chuckles, and Kichiro and Ai both start to laugh too. Hanto slaps you on the back. "As thick as ever, huh?"Kichiro nods. "It's because of that he's able to keep going, I think."You cross your arms. "W-wait a minute guys, it's not like I'm the only one who's come a long way! You're all incredible too. In ways that I could never be! Most of you could probably beat me in a one on one.." Mari pushes forward, and snaps at you. "Shaddup." She looks down at the ground. "You moron....Why do you think we've all been working so hard? You think we've all got it so easy probably, and yeah, to a degree we do, but.." Rock lee boisterously laughs. "Yes! Yes! This is the greatest!!"
>>2109404Your eyes are wide. "What's going on??" Mirai, Hanto, Kayo and Himawari all step forward from behind you suddenly, and the whole group is standing in front of you.Kichiro, your hot headed team mate who's always rushed no matter the consequences. Ai, a serious girl who's never slacked on her training.Mari, a Hyuuga prodigy who once seemed unbeatable.Roku, one of your greatest tests of willpower during the preliminaries.Ollie-Chan, a straightforward fighter with an honest personality.Himawari. A naive, talented Genin who's raw power was often held back by her kindness. Shinji. A relative genius capable of many types of support jutsu, as well as being capable on the battlefield.Kayo. A wild girl with a strong sense of justice, who was there during your first encounter with real evil.Mirai grins. "Every one of these kids...They've all seen something in you that inspired them to push themselves up harder."Rock Lee has tears forming at the corners of his eyes, as well as Ollie-Chan. Lee starts, looking away. "One shinobi, proves he could be exceptional despite no advantage at all!! Not through the power of his techniques, but.."Hanto places his hands on both Mirai and Lee's shoulders, and yells. "The strength of his character!!!" Your fist clenches, and you look down for a brief moment.>A. I see now. Thank you everyone. I'll keep doing my best, not just for me, but for you too.>B.

You look up, looking each of your friends in the eyes. You're not sure when, but at some point, everyone started to look up to you. "I see now. Thank you everyone. I'll keep doing my best, not just for me, but for you too.Kichiro blows a raspberry. "You might be cool, but you're still cheesy. Let's go, we've got a mission to get to everyone!" The group cheers, oddly celebratory despite the impending battle. As you all leave the village and begin your new journey, spirits are high.---Somewhere else, deep underground..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pI7Jc-fSQQ8Shozuku, sitting in a throne carved from stone, looks out at his mass of cultists. Next to him stands Tomiko, the blonde medical assassin that acts as his personal caretaker. Then, on the other side, is Asuka. A Cloud Genin who was forced into Jashinism and brainwashed. Her body is covered in deep scars as ever. She's been turned into his personal body guard.The boy stands. The rabble of men and women in front of him quickly becomes silent. Empty eyes survey the room, and in turn, all eyes are focused on him. "Today is the day of our assault on civilization. We shall make ourselves known to all peoples of the five Great Nations, and those of the lesser nations as well."He holds out his hands, before slowly gripping them into fists. "Lord Jashin has given us this gift for a purpose. I've given you this gift for a purpose." The crowd stares, eager. "What purpose is that?" Shozuku asks. At once, they respond in a booming, singular voice. "Our own, our own purpose!" The many different men and women here are of all shapes and sizes. Some are fit and beautiful, exuding power. Others are gaunt and frail, cold eyes full of cunning. He brings the fists down to his side, a light spark of fire forming in his empty eyes as the energy builds. "And what purpose is yours!?!"They shout back. "To live for our own freedoms! Break our bindings, and be who we truly are!!" He roars. "AND WHO ARE WE?!"The crowd goes wild, each individual shouting their own answer. "Killers!""Criminals!""Scum!" "Gods!" "Demons!""Lords!" "Humans!""Ninja!"Shozuku sits down in his throne, and shouts one last time. "GO! Show me your power!"The crowd empties the stone room. Tomiko turns to Shozuku. "Are you feeling well enough for this?"He nods. "I'm in perfect condition. The fever was nothing."Tomiko reaches into a bag, and withdraws a glowing crystal orb. Green malice swirls within it like a typhoon, and Shozuku's hands tremble as it's placed into them. He stares deeply into the orb. "I'll show the whole world what power is."---
>>2109515After several hours of travel, you're starting to near your destination. The city itself is entrenched in a wide valley between mountains, with many open fields surrounding it full of farmers and small residential areas. Part of a highway is being constructed as well, leading to the Leaf Village. Mirai turns and starts to walk backwards, addressing the group. "Okay everyone! We're approaching the village. Mari, Himawari, both of you activate your Byakugan. Kayo, keep your nose sharp. Shinji, keep your insects on the lookout. We're going to observe from a distance, and then decide how to best approach. According to our intel, things should be going down in about twenty minutes. The sensory members of your team all start doing their job. Himawari and Mari are the first to speak up. "I..I see them. Some of them." says Himawari. "Yeah.." Mari nods. "They're coming from a nearby underground facility, but as they pour out, some groups are becoming hidden. They're capable of blocking sensory types to a degree, it seems. It's probably how they were able to keep a group this big this close.."Rock Lee stands nearby, with his arms crossed. "Can you estimate their numbers?"Mari nods. "Hundreds, at the least. Maybe even a thousand or more, when you consider the hidden forces. This is...This is an army!!"Lee stands up straight. "I see then. As the fastest, I'll head back and alert the main force that they need to catch up. You guys decide how to approach from here."You step forward. "Our goal is to find the bomb, or whatever it is they're planning on using to destroy the city. We should break up into two teams, that way each time can have one Jonin and one user of the Byakugan. We'll be able to cover the most ground while still staying safe."Hanto nods. "Let's think about how we should divvy up the teams. Any ideas?">Write-inTeam 1: Mirai and MariTeam 2: Hanto and HimawariWho should go where?The other members are as follows: Takeshi, Kichiro, Ai, Shinji, Kayo, Ollie-Chan, Roku

I am beginning to think that Shozuku doesn't just have a fever.
>>2109547Yeah me too. Probably possessed or having his medic fuck with him.>>2109545I see we reached the same conclusion
>>2109557>I see we reached the same conclusionIt's the smart thing to do when building squads right?Also Shozoku is the patron champion of an elder god, of course he's possessed.Have you not read Hellboy, they always pull that shit.
Might be because of this strange immorality power , it might only stop you from dying due to physical damage but it might have and adverse affects on your body long term.
I think we should send some of Shinji's bug to go underground. Although i don't know how strong is his connection with his bugs.
>>2109573Sorry about typos and other errors, it's very late here and I am suffering from insomnia.
"I think it should go like this. Team one will be Mirai, Mari, me, Kichiro and Kayo. Team two will be Hanto, Himawari, Ai, Roku and Ollie. How does that sound to everyone?"The group nods in agreement. "A good mix of offense, support, and detection. But, how should we approach the city?"Himawari speaks up. "From what I can see, they've got their forces split into three groups. One that's heading directly towards the center of town, probably to cause complete chaos. Then two on the outskirts, intending to prevent escape or stop incoming support. It's not our mission to save civilians right now, but if we don't stop that central force.." Mari nods. "It'd be bad, to say the least. Though, our goal is to find whatever weapon they have and disable it. We could ignore their outside forces, and head right to their main facility.">A. Hanto's team tackle the central force. Takeshi/Mirai's team should search the south side of the city, and handle the southern force.>B. Hanto's team tackle the central force. Takeshi/Mirai's team should search the north side of the city, and handle the northern force. >C. Hanto's team tackle the central force.

>>2109628You're approach the city from the West, and the Jashinist forces are coming in from the East. Your main force is several miles behind you, waiting for Rock Lee's information. The city is fairly bog standard, made up of residential zones on the outside circles, some industrial zones in the south, and business and entertainment/upscale zones in the center/north sides.

>>2109652You tell the group about your plans. Everyone agrees completely, and before you know it, you're about to split up and set off. Suddenly, Hanto approaches you as your team is descending down the hill and into the valley. "Hey, Takeshi. One last thing before we go in there. Stay vigilant, yeah?" You look up. "Always, sensei."Turning around, you grin. "Good luck everyone! Let's go!" The two teams split up and take off running through the fields. Your team heads a little to the south, hoping to speed through the industrial zone. There shouldn't be many Jashinists forces there, as they're supposedly attempting to corral civilians. As you're running, you look over and see Hanto give you a thumbs up.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYpySN0SwAYSuddenly, without warning, he blasts forward in an explosion of blue fire and speed. The bolt of a man cuts across a broad swath of the field, punching into the center of the city. At once you can see whipping blue fire explode into the sky, and the screams of jashinists can faintly be heard. Ai grunts, and Mirai shakes her head. Kichiro just laughs. "What a show off! He just had to get the first taste, huh?" The teams split up fully as you enter the city. You, Mirai, Mari, Kichiro and Kayo. Akahiko, her dog, leaps out of her pocket and transforms into a clone of her. They both use the Four Legs technique, increasing their speed and reflexes. Mari yells out. "Okay, there's only a few patches of enemies we'll have to work through to get to the base! There's a group coming up now attacking some construction workers. How should we approach??""What's the area like?" you yell as you run. In the distance the sounds of fighting intensifies. Mari yells back. "The construction yard is mostly an empty lot with some equipment strewn about. There's about two dozen Jashinists! There's still some workers on the lot, so we can't just blow them up!">A. Have Mirai and Kichiro use their speed to rescue as many workers as they can, while you set up for a paralyzing bell. The rest of the team attacks afterwards.>B. Set up the paralyzing bells first, and have Kichiro act as a distraction until then. Mirai, Kayo and Akahiko save the civilians as they're stuck, and the battle begins.>C.

>>2109710It would effect our allies too.
Hey Mini, quick question...where do you usually read new Ippo scans?Just askin' cuz stuff.
Kichiro and Mirai speed ahead, while you, Mari and Kayo lag behind as they draw their attention. The two ninja flash into the group of Jashinists, using Shunshin.The scene is gruesome. There are bodies impaled on poles, and some jashinists run around using equipment to cause destruction. As Mirai and Kichiro land, they start swirling through the scene and accomplishing their goal while you set the paralyzing bells up behind a stone pillar. Mari sits next to you, describing the actions of your team mates.Kichiro blows the jaws of a couple cultists off with a few quick flaming punches, as Mirai cuts their throats with her knuckle dusters. Each one grabs some civilians and brings them back to where you sit. Kayo leaves Akahiko with you, and instructs the workers on how to escape.Mari turns. "Okay, now!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzByFuxMbxg&t=502sYou ring your bells once, gently, and your whole team sprints into action as the enemy is paralyzed. Akahiko rushes forward and uses Fang over Fang, and Mari starts to snipe enemies from afar utilizing her senbon. Kichiro and Mirai catch any outliers before they can escape to warn their allies, and cuts them down.Kayo returns a moment later, and you regroup outside the lot, now in the center of the industrial zone. The sound of a massive explosion draws everyone's attention, and in the distance near the center of the city, a skyscraper has just had a chunk blown out the side of it. The metal groans under stress for a moment, before starting to fall to the city streets.Blue fire explodes upwards in a bubbling torrent, and the crumbling rubble is blasted back into the air. The whole city is showered by falling meteors and glass, and the force of it causes your team to cower while the wind blows hard. Mirai grumbles. "What the hell..? If Hanto's fighting this seriously, they must be having a hard time!"Kichiro nods. "He'll be fine, we gotta trust him and their team! Let's keep moving!"You glance to Mari. "See anything strange? Kayo, smell anything?"Kayo shakes her head. "Just blood, unfortunately."Mari continually scans the area with her Byakugan. "Yeah..There's someone heading towards us from the West! It's a woman, with blonde hair and a slender figure. She's got a couple people with her."Your brow furrows. "Tomiko. Some of you already know her. She's capable of using Edo Tensai, so we should go and strike her down as quickly as we can!" The group agrees. But how do you want to do that?>A. Stay where you are and wait for her to come. Have Kayo hide while Akahiko remains, and have her attack from the shadows before the fight starts.>B. Rush directly towards her as a group. Have Kichiro and Mirai try to crush her as quickly as possible.>C. Ask the rest of the team to handle her while you and Mari keep exploring.>D. Write-in
>>2109761Okay cool, hopefully you haven't read the latest chapter just yet.
>>2109758>A. Stay where you are and wait for her to come. Have Kayo hide while Akahiko remains, and have her attack from the shadows before the fight starts.>D. Summon Owl for another surprise from the skies. Explicit instructions to keep her from getting Edo tensei off.
>>2109765I did as soon as it came out.
>>2109758I’ll support this, some extra support/eyes in the sky are always helpful>>2109766
>>2109766Oh shit, it seems Summoning Jutsu isn't on the technique list. For clarification I want to note you guys have access to TWO Owl summons. 1. is Danpei, the original one you learned. He knows Wind Bullets, and is more of a scout than anything. Two is Sachi, who knows some Genjutsu.
>>2109758>D. Remain in the construction yard and set traps along the field, leaving a water clone and Akahiko near the western entrance.WE GOT THIS
>>2109766fug, as this guys write in to mine as well>>2109768It hurts
>>2109775whch would be more like to interrupt Edo tensei?
>>2109783I think that's up for us to decide
>>2109786Well unless Sachi knows some really nice genjutsu wind bullets would be better.
>>2109768Any idea how long your quest based on it will last, I don;t know much about the series but I doubt you can run a 70 thread quest based on boxing.
>>2109787Well we don't know but I'm sure she knows enough to be distracting.Either way I think Danpei would be better. Maybe his scouting skills enable him to hide better, so he can keep attacking and running for cover.
>>2109787I'm looking for it now and I think her information was in a thread that got misarchived and lost as a result. I don't remember too well but I'm pretty sure she knew a handful of fairly basic stuff. False sense: place, False sense: Fatigue, and False sense: Sound at the very least.
>>2109795not useful for jutsu interruption then.
>>2109791It's hard to say, but I already have a definitive end point in mind. Shouldn't be as long as this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1oBSajDsv4You can feel the sweat on your body suddenly turn cold. So many emotions are welling up inside of you. The culmination of everything that you've seen since you've became a shinobi, the vast majority of the suffering the world can only be made possible through one woman. Tomiko.Clenching your fists, you furrow your brow and scan the area. Though you're angry, it only sharpens your focus.You bite your thumb, and slam your palm down onto the ground. "Summoning Jutsu!" Danpei arrives in a puff of smoke. Usually he'd joke around for a few moments, but his feathers ruffle as soon as he appears. His head spins all the way around and looks at you, surprisingly serious for such large expressive eyes. "Mister Takeshi. How can I help you, today?"You smile. "Hi, Danpei. I'd like you to circle the area, a strong foe is coming our way. Just act as support for now, please."He flies off, the sun high in the sky. "Kayo, Akahiko. We're going to try to take her out before she can use Edo Tensei, okay? Have Akahiko hide, and we'll distract her."The clone of Kayo nods and speeds off, hiding behind the destroyed rubble of a factory wall that's been blown through. Mari keeps her Byakugan focused on the enemy. "So, you gonna talk to her and try to keep her still for a second?"You nod. "That's the idea.." Tomiko and her group rounds the corner. Along with her are four Jashinists, three of whom seem awfully scraggly. They have a crazed look in their eyes, and some of them are coated in blood. The fourth Jashinist is one you don't recognize. This surprises you because of how striking he looks. He could just be a new recruit. It's tall man in a black robe, with a bald head and dark skin. He might be from the Lightning Nation. He has a pair of black, circular glasses, not unlike Shino. He's walking with his hands folded behind his back. He looks like a preacher, more so than a cultist or ninja.Tomiko stops as she spots you. She leans over and whispers something to the tall, dark man. Mari gruns. "Shit! I can read her lips from here; the tall guy is a sensor! He's going to find out where Akahiko is any second! What do we do!?">A. Everyone attack! >B. Everyone attack while you throw down your paralyzing bells again. >C. Dash forward on your own using Shunshin, and charge up your Jet Sheath. Use the dash from the Jet Sheath as soon as you land, and try to cut Tomiko apart before she can react.>D. Write-in
>>2109829>A. Everyone attack!>C. Dash forward on your own using Shunshin, and charge up your Jet Sheath. Use the dash from the Jet Sheath as soon as you land, and try to cut Tomiko apart before she can react.why didn't I think they'd have sensors...
>>2109829>D. Write-inattack the sensor, Tomiko will probably block us herself (or at least be distracted by us rushing in, not something we usually do) and that's when the rest attack her while she's distracted
>>2109835actually change my target from Tomiko to sensor.We can't pull back and hide if we need to if Father Theodore over here can just track us.
>>2109829I just thought on something.>D. Write-in: Have Denpei fire a wing bullet toward the sensor and then attack Tomiko using sunshin+ Jet sheath combo.
>>2109829>>2109837This We got Tomiko covered with Danpei, so lets it the sensor first .
>>2109829>A. Everyone attack! >D. Cast that fire genjutsu from the owls on Tomiko, that might keep her from casting Edo for a little while.Not sure about this but we should try using that jutsu sometime.
>>2109840Personally I was imagining morpheus, but really they're pretty close as it is. The glasses are the biggest difference
>>2109829>D Throw out so paralysing bells but also mix a few poisoned senbon in and have them aimed towards the sensor whilst we have everyone move positions.Basically I want us to be a distraction without us going into a straight up melee
TomikoxTakeshi is my OTP.
>>2109851But anon they would never expect us to go melee.
>>2109852this is somehow worse than TakeshiXSarada
>>2109829>>C. Dash forward on your own using Shunshin, and charge up your Jet Sheath. Use the dash from the Jet Sheath as soon as you land, and try to cut Tomiko apart before she can react.
>>2109835>>2109837>>2109839>>2109841>>2109843>>2109844>>2109859This combo wins, update incoming
You fly through a couple handsigns, and use False Sense: Sound to telepathically communicate to Danpei. You tell him to fire a Wind Bullet at the sensor, and just after you turn to your team. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17h01t4ey78"Everyone, attack!" Mari flings her Kimono open, and starts unleashing a barrage of ranged weapons at high speed. Danpei swoops down and fires a wind bullet at the sensor just as you use Shunshin to dash forward. As you land softly on your feet, having crossed half the distance, the gauge on your sheath beeps. Releasing the mechanism, you're blasted forward by a sharp release of air, spinning your short curved blade through the air wildly at Tomiko. Her eyes go wide in surprise. The priest forms several handsigns, and spits a stream of water out in front of him. The Water Wall Jutsu blocks the wind bullet, but you focus in on the point of impact and try to cut through with your momentum. The torrent of water pushes you upwards and over your target, but as you spin out of control, you unleash an aerial barrage of senbon. Tomiko and the priest rapidly dash backwards to avoid the sudden rain, but as they do, Kayo and Akahiko come barreling in from behind with Fang over Fang. Tomiko uses her advanced flexibility to slither through the attacks, but the priest is struck dead on by Kayo. His body is lifted high into the air before she kicks him away, landing a good distance from the fight. As you start to land, you glance at him and determine he's still conscious as he's slowly getting up. The grunt jashinists are all wiped out by Mirai and Kichiro.Everyone pauses for a brief moment to locate Tomiko, and you all bear down on her. You land just behind her, while everyone rushes in from each direction. Kichiro is the first to reach her, and his body blow folds her in half. The sound of her groan brings a feeling of relief over you at once.Until..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pWEtpcFCjoTomiko's body changes in a puff of smoke.Shozuku is now in front of you, his body bent in half. Then, he vanishes in a puff of smoke.At once, the dots connect for you. You glance around the battlefield.Blood to disable Kayo's scent. A Shadow Clone, the chakra portioned to be indistinguishable from Tomiko, to trick the Byakugan. The sensor to determine exactly how many threats there were. The mooks to draw attention.You grit your teeth. "Shozuku.." You've been caught in some sort of trap, slowly turning, you see Tomiko standing in the distance, a coffin raising out of the ground next to her. The priest suddenly appears by her side as well, having gotten up.----That's all for tonight folks. Join me next week, to continue the dangerous conclusion of Boruto Quest, Part 1!I'll be around a bit more for questions/concerns.
>>2109887Thanks for running MiniHow badly did we just fuck up?How long till Lee gets back?
>>2109887>>2109887Hmmm, Guess we should have helped out with the army instead. I just hope the other group will be alright.
>>2109887Shit.Was there any way to stop Edo Tensei here without assuming this was a trap?How did our Owl summon not see them?Next session when?
>>2109893I think this was gonna happen any how.
>>2109893Not too bad really. The main mistake comes from team composition, however, that was going to be more chance than anything.If Shinji was on your team, he has a technique that can jam sensors. But you haven't ran into a dedicated sensor I believe, until now in the quest. You're a bunch of power houses though. The weakest member of your team is probably Kayo, and she has Akahiko to back her up and even that out. It's now 3 v 5, granted 2 of them are immortal and one is SUPER immortal.>>2109896Either choice was going to be difficult. This is the last mission.>>2109898There was, but again, it was more due to chance and information you couldn't have possibly known. Paranoia wouldn't have helped you in this situation. Lee should be reaching the main forces fairly soon. Then he'll be coming back with them. The battle's only just begun. Also, Danpei was listening to your orders and focused on the priest. The real Tomiko was hiding until her clone popped. By then it was too late.
>>2109903And I am worried that cause it's the last mission we are gonna come out of this missing something like an arm or crippled.
>>2109911Don't worry, we have plenty of methods to get over being stumped in this mission.Look at the two strongest ninja in the village, it doesn't seem to get them down.
>>2109887That was a great 5D Underwater Ping Pong play, pretty good. Thanks for running.So, tell me about this little technique I thougth. What if we cast Hydro Sword and use the Jet-Sheath for spinning instead of dashing into the enemy, like a spin attack from zelda but dual wielding? I dont know if it would be effective, but it looks cool in my mind.
>>2109917Those are the exception, not the rule, Takeshi is a normal ninja not some genetic force of nature. Unless they are gonna vat grow and arm for him he is pretty much screwed.
>>2109923Cmon...imagine it anon.We'll be like Big Boss.BIG BOSS!
>>2109922Hydro Sword on one arm, Jet Wakizashi on the other. Double cut and spin.
>>2109930just hold them both out and spin as fast as we can, nothing can get past that
>>2109937I wonder if we could learn Rotation from the hyugas. Spin2Win!
>>2109937We are become Dark Souls, the spinniest of winners.
>>2109927Missing limbs are not cool. At that point Mini would be hammering the under dog trait of the story a little bit to hard by crippling us and handicapping us even more.
>>2109922As of now, the range of your hydro sword isn't that great. That'd be situational, like if you were surrounded by close combat fighters. Could do it pretty easily, though.You might be getting access to a certain jutsu that could improve it though, over the time skip.
>>2109955So after the timeskip, will are stats be upgraded jonin equivalent stats?For example, if 16 year old Takeshi had 4.5 in speed, would that be a Jonin 4.5 or a Genin/Chunin 4.5?
>>2109959I'll elaborate more on that when the time comes.Basically a third section of tier comes in that wasn't really relevant during this time period. Special Jonin, ANBU, Hunter Nin, Samurai and other types of fighters that aren't quite at Jonin level, but are certainly stronger than your average Chunin.
>>2109941We'll be a living Beyblade. I love it.
>>2109973Too late. Saiyans already have that on lock.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwMqRaFeHWw
>>2109988PffffYou know, I'm surprised there have been no references to the few Naruto Abridged episodes in this. Good job on avoiding low-hanging fruit Mini.
>>2110003Never seen it. The only abridged series I watched was dragonball, and I've forgotten a lot of it by now.
>>2110010LittleKuriboh did it in between YuGiOh stuff way back when TeamFourStar was starting to get going. It was decent by today's standards but it was really good back then.
>>2109923>Unless they are gonna vat grow and arm for him he is pretty much screwedthey can do that tough ?would be hella expensive but it would be posible that's how naruto got his arm back after all
>>2109923I figure if the optic nerve is plug-and-play in the Naruto universe, then arms probably are too.We just wind up with somebody else's arm, after they aren't using it anymore.
>>2110767We can use Shozuku's.Inb4 we pull a Liquid Snake
>>2110489I am kinda of iffy on it, I mean Takeshi isn't gonna have enough money and I doubt they would just give away an arm.
Aww dammit I missed some good shit. And soon we won't even have Boruto Quest anymore. What am I supposed to read set in the Boruto's Dad Universe then?
>>2111616It won't be gone forever m8. Plus you can check out the other quest mini is gonna run in the meantime. I have a feeling that mini's writing style is gonna really mesh well with the universe it's set in.
>>2111620Yeah, I'm excited for Mini's other quest, but I feel like picking something Naruto up. And out of the four currently running I'm not autistic enough to enjoy Wargle, Moon's kind of went off the rails and lost me, and Support Shinobi is about a puppeteer and I don't mess with that.I just want Laze back, I would even settle for the lolicon one.
>>2111635You could jump into one of the BNHA quests running if your on a shounen anime vibe.
>>2111635Laze said he would be coming back fairly soon, actually. a couple months maybe
>>2111675Remember the last time somebody said they'd be back "soon".
>>2111675He did? When was that? His last tweet was in March and he talked about coming back in the late spring or summer at the end of FMA.
>>2111687More like any time someone promised to be back "soon."
>>2111691he posted in Shinobi Quest last week
>>2111710I have my doubts, and even if it's really Laze after reading those posts I'm pretty apprehensive. The ending of Leaf Ninja was the weakest part by far, I hope it doesn't become anymore like Shinobi.
>>2109603>"I think it should go like this. Team one will be Mirai, Mari, me, Kichiro and Kayo. Team two will be Hanto, Himawari, Ai, Roku and Ollie. How does that sound to everyone?"Everyone forgot Shinji. Again. It's like a running joke now, every time we see him after not seeing him for a few threads, at least one guy goes LITERALLY WHO. And now we didn't even include him in the team line up. In this case are you going to open up a vote to determine if he's on the other team making things go smoother or helping us take down the big bad? Alternatively, if you don't do that are you going to just put him on the other team since we didn't specify? I'd rather you flip a coin if you don't want to go through a vote than that at least. Poor Shinji, no matter how hard he tries, it seems he's destined to be a background character for the entire story, despite his clan having a unique and versatile fighting style. >Google search Shinji for picture>Google has no idea who this is>Naruto wiki- finds Shinji's page>See's pic>OH COME ON
>>2112089>Everyone forgot Shinjiummm no?>>2109521>>2109545He's clearly on team 2 line up dude.
>>2112089>Even the QM forgot about ShinjiThe Aburames are forever cursed to being forgotten and ignored.
>>2112950he is on the other team
>>2112089>>2112950I actually did forget to include him in that list, but he is on the other team, and anons remembered him enough to place him at least. It's a shame he's so easy to forget because he's actually strong as fuck. Just never really been in the proper situation to display it, like his dad.
Holy fuck, just found out that Mini is back. Thank god i did not miss the final battle against Shozuku.
Thread will be later at 6:30 PM, Eastern US time
Can someone archive this please, I have no idea how to.
