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.

You're on a mission to confront Shozuku,

You're not sure to what extent, but your team's arrival here was at least somewhat planned for. It's possible that Tomiko and Shozuku were
able to foresee the general composition of an advance party, and lay a series of traps around the city for them to get baited into.

Their general tactics for creating chaos and spreading destruction work well enough as a cover when their advanced operatives are on the move. You consider that you're being targeted specifically, though there's no way of knowing for now.

Glaring forward, you watch the coffin slowly creak open. A white hand grasps the wood, splintering it with it's strength before pulling the body attached outward.

Initially, as his head hangs low, the shadow over the cadaver's face makes him hard to identify, but slowly he raises and reveals himself. It's Koji. It's been a long time, but he was a Jonin whom you'd fought on your first mission as a Chunin, along with Sarasu's squad. He's actually an old squadmate of your sensei's, who's highly skilled with lightning ninjutsu.

"Mirai.." you say.

Understanding your meaning clearly, she nods. "Right. I'll keep him locked down. The rest of you, go after Tomiko and that priest!"

Roughly thirty feet away from you stands Tomiko, the dark-skinned priest, and Koji. On your side stands Mirai, Kayo and Akahiko, Kichiro, and Mirai.

>A. Me and Mari need to keep looking for the weapon. You guys handle these three!
>B. Let's reverse that, actually. Mirai, go after Tomiko and the priest. The rest of us will keep Koji busy!
>C. Everyone, attack at once. We can overwhelm them with numbers!

A is the trap option.
Shozuku want's to fight us head on and is probably waiting with the weapon to do just that.
B is just a only our friends will be heading head first into battle with the big bad instead of us.
So C it is.

To make things simpler though, killing the summoner is a viable option in this quest.

So is Kabuto still alive? I don't remember him being mentioned. Are there Shins? That makes rebuilding the Uchiha easier.

Then Mirai killing Tomiko faster would be a easier and faster solution. While making Mirai counter the ressurected guy would be just a tactic to stall.

I'm not sure. I don't believe I'll be including the Shin's at all though, the main question is deciding Kabuto's fate.

His character had such a weird ending.

Most likely he's still traped in Itachi's genjutsu.

"Everyone, attack!"

You issue the command, and your squad moves without a moment's hesitation. Mirai cleanly shoots past all of you, drawing her sword and swiftly locking blades with Koji, who catches her weapon with a kunai. She presses down with all of her might, and Koji grips his wrist with his free hand to maintain his block.

Mirai leans forward, staring at him angrily. "I remember you. You're a traitor to the village, and Hanto too."

Koji pushes her off of him, and makes a small backstep before throwing the knife in his hand. Mirai deflects it with ease before rushing towards him. Koji's eyes narrow as he spots you, and the rest of the Leaf Genin rushing forward. His scraggly mane of black hair suddenly starts to crackle with electricity, and spread apart. "Yeah. These days I'm a traitor to the living, too."

From what you can remember, he was capable of a large variety of high speed and power techniques. Koji raises both hands and flies through a series of hand signs. "If I really had a choice, I'd be attacking this bitch who keeps summoning me. But I don't, so, I'll just have to take it out on you!"

"Lightning Release: False Lightning!"

He spits a stream of electricity from his mouth, and Mirai leaps into the sky to avoid it. Your group is scattered as a the beam of destruction cuts a swath through the open fields of the construction yards, the exploding earth and fire tracing a line from the dirt into the concrete of an incomplete tower.

Mirai uses Burning Ash as she falls, covering Koji in a cloud of hot embers before they explode in a pillar of flame. Mirai lands past him, and keeps running towards Tomiko and the priest.

You were all going to rush forward as a group, but Koji's destructive force kept you still.

It's clear that you'll have to keep him occupied while someone attacks Tomiko.

Kichiro rushes forward before anyone says anything, jets of flame exploding off of his boots to propel him forward. You look to Mari and Kayo.

>A. Mari, you have the best defense. You should help Kichiro with Koji, and we'll go after the others.

"You guys go help Mirai!" you yell, taking off to assist your squadmate.

Ahead of you, Kichiro is running directly towards the column of smoke and flame. The wind blows away the cover, and underneath it Koji is standing. He's looking up towards the sky, and the left side of his face has been cleanly blasted off. The ashes around him swirl up and reform his figure, leaving only thin cracks in his skin as a scar. Even those dissipate in a matter of moments.

Koji looks down at his hands. "So this is a taste, huh?"

The ex-Jonin forms a few handsigns. "Unlimited power.."

Four Lightning Clones appear all around him. Kichiro barrels directly into the group, leaping into the fray with a flying kick.

One of the clones of Koji catches his foot, and another rushes in to grab a hold of his body. They hold him for just a moment before flames erupt out of Kichiro's foot, destroying the clone. Kichiro's wrapped in an aura of static shock for a few moments, frying him.

"Kichiro! Don't destroy them at close range, they'll just-!"

He slams his elbow into the head of the one holding him, destroying it as well. The electricity coats your friend, and he screams out in pain. Kichiro bends at the knees, momentarily weakened. Two of the clones descend on him with Kunai, and you throw a handful of senbon at the real Koji to distract him. Kichiro catches the wrists of the clones, stopping the blades short. He's immobolized now though, kneeling in front of the real Koji.

The Ex-Jonin lets each needle strike him in the neck, before calmly glancing at you. They get pushed out a few moments later by his healing. "Don't worry. I remember you. You're Hanto's student, huh? The lucky fool. Do you have any idea how frustrating it is to be outdone by that talentless hack, only for his student to cut me down years later!? I'll make it slow when I kill you, boy! I might be bound to these freak's will, but at least I'll get my last act of vengeance, hahaaha!"

Kichiro growls. "He's not his only student, you know."

Koji looks down, and throws a right straight into Kichiro's face. "Shut the hell up!"

You start sprinting forward to go help. Your mind is shooting through all the possibilities of what to do.

How do you want to save your friend?
>>
>>2121957

You think of using the Jet Sheath to dash in, or maybe some Genjutsu to distract Koji. You wonder if dosing him with poison will still affect the corpse. How are you going to respond to Koji's speed? He might cut Kichiro down before you can..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkS_w22lbEs

Looking up again, your run slows somewhat as you're surprised to see your ally still staring directly up at Koji. His fist has landed squarely on the bridge of his nose, and blood is flowing cleanly over his lips. Even then, Kichiro keeps looking upward.

The Leaf Genin spurts jets of flames from the soles of his feet, and uses them to shoot upwards into the air. Once free from the grip of the lightning clones, he flies through a couple handsigns and uses the Great Fireball Jutsu directly below him.

The clones are wiped out, and Koji jumps backwards with a short step before jumping into the air. The Ex-jonin dashes upwards, intending to stab your friend in the gut with a kunai.

Kichiro roars, punching forward with his fist. A blast of flame erupts off of his knuckles, hitting Koji square in the face and sending him spinning. The resurrected man calls out in surprise, as he starts to fall. "Dragon boxing!?"

You use the Haze Clones to form a veritable illusory army, and run through the open field to reach Kichiro. Quickly covering his face with your healing palm, you speak to Kichiro.

"That was nuts! You gotta wait before rushing in like that, you scared me."

Kichiro's nose is slowly being stitched shut underneath your hand. He grumbles. "I nailed him at least, but it won't matter very much. We gotta start thinking of a way to end this fight, now..You and Mari should be looking for the weapon out there!"

You hand him a soldier pill, and lightly tap his ribs with your knuckles as you use the Diagnosis Pulse. He's fine considering the electrical damage he faced. Only light burns on the skin, and a fractured nose. "Eat that. We're gonna finish this up pretty quickly, okay? I have a plan."

Kichiro crunches the pill between his teeth, grimacing at the bitter taste. "I bet you do.."

Koji starts to rush towards the army of clones, zeroing in on Kichiro.

What do you want to do?

>A. Tell Kichiro that you and him will fight him head on. Use your Jet Sheath

You kneel down, and use the Water Clone Jutsu to create six copies of yourself. Danpei swoops in overhead, firing a few Wind Bullets in the direction of Koji. The Ex-Jonin fires off a Lightning Ball, and the blasts of wind are all easily knocked aside. You and your friend leap to the sides to avoid the blast. It bought you a moment of time, at least

While you're on your belly, you look up to examine the fight between Mirai and the others. As far as you can tell, Tomiko is doing her best to run away as Mirai pursues her. Mari, and Kayo face down the priest.

You spot a clone of Tomiko slipping down a sharp turn in the distance, and you're about to use False Sound to communicate to Mirai when suddenly she comes running back in the direction she came from. A clone of Kayo running on all fours barks angrily at her, keeping her within the confines of the battlefield. You grin and stand back up, narrowly ducking a rogue bit of shrapnel from a series of nearby explosions.

Kichiro has used his new burst of chakra to meet Koji head on, and his fiery fists keep shooting forward at a high pace.

As Koji is fighting Kichiro, he somehow accounts for your various water bullets flying in from multiple directions. Then, you notice a lightning clone that's snuck off to the sides and is now watching the battle.

His clone is likely relaying information back to Koji, so he doesn't get caught in one of your traps

Koji deftly parries each attack, striking at Kichiro's wrists to deflect the punches and throw him off balance. The first few punches are only narrowly deflected, but afterwards, Koji adds in a lightning quick punch. Now every time Kichiro throws a punch and misses, he's punched square in the face in return. The cut on his nose opens back up, and his right eye starts to swell shut.

The Ex-Jonin ducks an attack of Kichiro's, and starts to form some handsigns. He's struck squarely in the side by a blast of water, however, and tumbles to the side.

Koji hits the ground spinning, and unleashes another blast of False Darkness. The beam of lightning released from his mouth fires directly at your ally, Kichiro.

You will all but two of your Water Clones to leap into the path of the blast, mostly dispelling the stream of energy. Kichiro kneels down and leaps towards Koji, hell bent on payback.

As he's distracted with this, you mentally tell Danpei to loop around the battlefield and attack the Lightning Clone from behind while you position yourself for a pincer attack. As you quietly sneak along the cover of your clones, you look over to see how Kichiro and the others are doing.

Koji easily avoids each of the fire boosted attacks. Every time Kichiro swings, he's struck dead on. Now Koji's memorized his timing well enough to be able to hit him as he's attacking. Kichiro keeps trying to press forward, but it's to no avail. At some point he's struck with a left hand to the forehead, and the blow glances off. This gives him enough room to step in and throw a punch at Koji's body!

The swipe misses clean, a calm back step from the Jonin was more than enough to dodge it. Kichiro's swollen, bloody face twists in frustration. "D-damnit!"

Koji ducks under Water Bullets from your remaining clones. "Haha! Maybe you are his student, then, huh? Unlike him you're no freak of nature though!"

Koji steps forward, and kicks Kichiro in the chest, knocking him onto his back. "I used to know Hanto before he got all that crazy power, and let me tell you, you look a lot like him! Good for nothing, hahaha!" The Jonin stomps his boot onto Kichiro's chest.

Your brow furrows. Glancing back over, you can see that Danpei is now close enough to fire the Wind Bullets.

"Now!" you mentally declare. Your own Water Bullet was intended to get the clone to dodge, at which point Danpei's own attack strikes it down before it can react.

That should make it easier on Kichiro, you think. Your Clone's Water Bullets strike him, knocking the Jonin off of your friend.

Koji jumps back to his feet, soaked but unharmed. "The little fuck's around here still..I should finish this now, before he gets the drop on me."

Kichiro leaps to his feet, stumbling briefly from injury. Your friend swings a wide punch at Koji in futility, before being struck on the nose with another counter. Koji chuckles, drawing a kunai from his weapon pouch. "You got guts, at least. More than Hanto had. But it's time to put you down!"

The knife goes flying towards your stunned friend's gut. What do you want to do?

>A. Use your Jet Sheath and Shunshin to double dash forward, and knock Koji away.
>B. Have your Water Clones restrain Koji. If Kichiro can't hold him back anymore, than you need to go help Mirai pin down Tomiko. It's your only hope.

At the highest speed you can muster, you dash towards your friend Kichiro. You use Shunshin to close the gap, and begin to charge up your Jet Sheath to keep propelling you forward. Landing, you take a few more steps forward in your sprint.

You consider dropping all of your training weights off. Truthfully you were hoping to save it for a mission critical moment, but if you need to save your friend, then that's what you'll do.

As Kichiro is still stunned from being struck, he looks up at you in this wistful way. You're unsure if he's conscious or not, but regardless, he's looking right at you.

Then, it seems like he comes back to reality. A small bit of focus is lit into his eyes when he sees you running towards him. Embers start to burn, and it causes you to pause. The beep of your sheath goes off, but even then, you pause. Whatever it is, Kichiro's eyes are telling you a message.

Kichiro calmly stands there, going through a few handsigns you vaguely recognize.

Koji's knife lands clean in his stomach, but as he goes to rip it out, Kichiro's hand wraps around his wrist. The veins on the hand bubble and twist, and the flesh steams as it turns a reddish color. Your eyes widen slightly in surprise. "It's his Bath-House Demon technique. He hasn't done this since the exams.."

Kichiro looks at Koji through one open eye, the other being totally swollen shut. "You think just cause you've stabbed me you win, huh?"

Koji blinks. "I..I don't know what kind of technique this is, but it won't help you!"

Kichiro slams his head forward, butting Koji's own.

Kichiro grimaces as Koji uses his free hand to rub his face. "Tch, what the hell!? You think that's really gonna hurt me, kid? Don't you know that I'm-"

"Shut up. I can see that it hurt you, or you wouldn't be rubbing your face!"

The immortal man cocks an eyebrow at him. "Are you stupid? It's not going to injure me, regardless."

Koji shoots his free hand at Kichiro's face, expecting it to land just as it always had. But this time, Kichiro kneels down and pushes Koji off of him, leaving the knife in his stomach.

Your ally looks over again at you. "Go find this asshole! I can do this much.."

Kichiro clenches both of his fists, and places them at his side. "Without you! The Third Gate, Gate of Life! Open!"

He vanishes. Koji has a few moments to look around in fear and confusion, before the flaming assault begins.

Kichiro appears directly underneath him, and launches the immortal's body sky high. He appears in front of him a heartbeat later. His skin is swollen, blood soaked, and steaming red. Your friend smiles. "Don't crumble on me!!"

Koji's body is blasted apart in a violent explosion, dust rocketing out of a wound in his back. Before it can reform fully, Kichiro lets loose a machine gun rush of punches. Again and again holes are blown open in Koji's back, until finally, his head is kicked off completely.

The torso smacked across the construction yard. A blazing trail is left in the dirt as Kichiro races along, and starts to ping-pong him through the battlefield until he comes across a series of derelict buildings.

Using the partially destroyed skyscrapers as a rebound, Kichiro keeps bouncing Koji's torso between them to get higher and higher. Once at the top, he rears his arm back and issues a final, flaming punch to dissipate the body completely.

Kichiro's body starts to fall between the sky scrapers, and you rush to go catch him, heart racing.

Oh uh, good thread Mini.
I thought our water clones were just gonna make False Darkness more powerful, but I'm glad that didn't happen.
Do clones not factor into chakra interactions at all?
Like if a wind clone got hit with a fire jutsu would the fire jutsu just disperse as well?

It is I believe, but naruto elements are super wonky and non-sensical at times. Wind being the answer to Lightning is one of those things that confuses me.

>>2122689
I try to keep things more sensible rather than being based purely off of the intended chakra interactions. If a wind clone got hit with a fire jutsu, it'd make a big explosion.

But if a wind clone gets hit by a lightning jutsu then...stuff happens? It's just kind of strange.

Thanks for joining everyone.
>>
>>2122950
Wind impedes the movement of lightning, it's a better insulator than rubber even.

That and if earth trumped lightning then wind would have to bear earth and that would make even less sense.
>>
>>2122950
You jist need to think that wind is what guides the lightning. Imagine that the wind movement will disperse the lightning or at least manage to guide it's destruction. Maybe even reverte back the attacl to the person who released the attack.

Kinda like a counter attack simulating the lightning destruction and the wind flexibility.
>>
>>2123156
Plus, it isn't the air moving the lightning, it's the wind-type chakra that disperses the lightning. It's like how potassium pops and explodes in water, they just react that way.

WHATEVER

Thanks though, I'll keep these things in mind
>>
>>2123241
I always had the impression that wind could be the same as atmosphere. Besides rain and thunder only occour because the wind make the clouds colide with each other and so increasing a clouds ionization( increase in eletrons).
>>
>>2123820
Well, what I mean is this:

Chakra natures basically mean your chakra is more easily forced into certain patterns. Those patterns in turn are much easier to manipulate or generate certain elements with.
When those chakra patterns hit each other, those patterns oppose each other, and those certain patterns work to dissipate the others. Having more chakra can help, but, for instance, the patterns that make up lightning nature dissipate the chakra that makes up water nature very efficiently, but lightning nature is very inefficient at dissipating wind chakra.
Does that make sense? It's not about the element, it's the motive force behind it.
>>
>>2123831
Yeah your idea makes more sense.
>>
Just gonna drop this here.
Thoughts on these?
While talking about Boil release jutsus here's a few simple ones i've come up with

These 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. 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)
>Soap Binding Jutsu (Create solid and Hardened soap as bindings (or anything really) for transporting prisoners, can be sticky or slippery)

Become passable at Acid as well as bases. Even if we're gonna focus on bases acids will be useful to have.

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.
>>
>>2125703
For the water destruction technique, when you say certain basic compounds will seperate the hydrogen and oxygen in the water could you be more specific?
>>
>>2125731
He's saying certain bases can literally break the molecular bonds in water creating hydrogen and oxygen. Both of which are super flammable.
>>
>>2125746
Ya know what, let's not have hydrogen floating around people who can throw around fireballs and shit.
>>
>>2125746
Which bases do this specifically?
>>
>>2125754
the plan was to follow up with a fire jutsu for BOOM

>>2125762
Sodium Hydroxide AKa Lye.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_splitting#General_steps_in_water_oxidation_catalysis
>>
>>2125765
It would be too big of a BOOM to consider practical I think, especially if we deconstruct a water dragon or something.
>>
>>2125754
I think the point is to throw fireballs at it, though that will be dangerous as fuck. We'd need to really practice the combo hard before ever using it in a battle.

Hello anons. Thread later at 6:30 PM Eastern US time. I'll just be picking up here.

Yessss let's fuck up our evil twin

As Kichiro quickly falls to the ground, he flips over headfirst. It's clear that he's unconscious. Wasting no time, you use the Shunshin technique to close the distance before launching forward again with your Jet Sheath, spinning through the air to snatch him as gently as you can.

The landing is still a bit rough as you slide a few feet, and Kichiro screams in pain. He huffs and pants for a few seconds as you lay him down carefully, taking off your jacket and folding it under his head for a small amount of support.

Immediately you get to work and relieve his broken arms and legs with your healing jutsu. You wont' be able to get him walking again any time soon, but at the very least you can ease his pain and prevent further injury.

Mirai appears next to you in a flash, kneeling down. "Shit! Shit! I didn't know he could do that! He's totally out of it now, damnit.."

You chuckle, halfheartedly. "At least he destroyed Koji, right?"

She shakes her head. "It's just going to take a while for him to reform. We have about ten minutes, I'm guessing. Tomiko and that priest ran away. Mari and Kayo are in pursuit, but I told them to come back if they lose the trail. We need to decide on our next plan of action."

You know that you'll leave Mirai with Kichiro, to ensure his safety. Koji will certainly be angry.

Kichiro pants beneath you, still conscious somehow. "Go... Get the... thing..."

>A. Heal Kichiro until Mari returns, and look for the weapon with her. Have the others guard Kichiro.
>B. Heal Kichiro, and go off on your own. Have Mirai and the others keep hunting Tomiko while Mirai guards Kichiro from Koji.

While you heal Kichiro to the best of your ability, Mirai searches the area a little bit. After a few more minutes of waiting Mari, Kayo and Akahiko return.

"Everything looks clear." Mirai says. "There doesn't seem to be any traps or enemies around, right Mari?"

She shakes her head as she approaches. "No, not in the immediate area. Like we thought, the industrial area of town is mostly clear. It's the residential parts that are taking hits. This gives us a direct path through, however. We'll be able to reach their base fairly quickly."

You look down at Kichiro. "Okay then. Me and you are going ahead, and everyone else should retreat! Take Kichiro back to the camp. It shouldn't be too much longer before the rest of our allies arrive."

Kayo bumps your shoulder before you and Mari leave. "Hey, make sure to hit them real good once for me, alright?"

You nod. Mirai looks up from her construction of a stretcher for Kichiro. "Be careful. At this point in the fight, there's no telling what could happen, or what this weapon even is."

Mari grins. "Well, look, we shouldn't worry! I'll be able to see anything that sneaks up on us, so there won't be any surprises. Let's go, Takeshi."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pI7Jc-fSQQ8

She sprints off towards the Jashin base, and you take off after her. The two of you move at full speed, leaping forward and bounding off of the partially constructed buildings and equipment. The sun is high in the sky, somewhat alleviating the chill in the air.

After a while you hit the ground running, off into the forest. Mari points forward. "The entrance is up ahead! There's only about five people inside the building altogether..There's something else too, I'm not sure what it is. It looks like a star. A really small one, about the size of a soccer ball, just glowing brightly."

You nod. "Alright then. Do you see any other ways in aside from the front entrance?"

She shakes her head.

You sigh, and step forward. Removing some brush from what seems to be a normal boulder, you find a wooden cellar entrance. Opening it up, a wave of cold air brushes over you from within it, moaning in a low fashion. The two of you make your way down the stone steps, and you superheat a kunai using your Heated Metal jutsu as a makeshift torch. Once you reach the bottom of the stairs, you're inside of large, cathedral like room. The ceiling is high and carved from the stone, supported by various pillars. Mari looks around. "Three of the people in this facility are heading towards us.. One is in a chamber far back, while another seems to have..vanished? What's going on!?"

Stone doors ahead of you swing open, and out steps Asuka. She's the red haired Cloud ninja who's quite capable with a sword. You watched her fight in the Chunin Exams, but later on, it appears she was dragged into the Jashinist cult somehow. Her brown skin is covered in scars, and her eyes seem cold and empty. For the first time since you've seen her like this, she speaks.

"My master has been awaiting your arrival. He predicted that you would be a member of the team sent to investigate the rumors of a weapon of mass destruction, thanks to the sentimental nature of the Hokage. He also predicted that you would not be able to find and confront him alone, for you are a coward who lacks honor."

You also notice two shadowy shinobi next to her. Likely highly skilled cultist members, completely dressed in black.

Truthfully, you'd be lying if you said you didn't feel at least slightly pressured. You brush it off regardless, furrowing your brow and responding sharply. "True shinobi don't let themselves be held back by something like honor! I've got something much stronger, and that's loyalty. Something Shozuku wouldn't know anything about!"
>>
>>2126548

She smirks. "Regardless of what you believe to be true, your next decision will reveal the whole of your character. My master bears an offer. If you agree to his terms to face him in single combat, to the death, he will not unleash this weapon upon the city. Aside from when he defeats you, of course. What do you say?"

>A. No way. Let's beat these guys and keep moving, Mari.
>B. I guess I don't have a choice. Okay. Go get help, Mari!
>C. Whisper to Mari that you'll go on ahead, but tell her to defeat Asuka a few minutes after you've left. Then have her join your fight.

Tell her to wait for a bit before engaging, to give a bit of time so we can fully engage him in combat. It wouldn't do for things to be warming up and then someone shows up to tell him she attacked and he unleashes the weapon.

Going with C, as it seems that's what the majority of people are feeling now.

You whisper to Mari that she should try to take these guys out a few minutes after you've left. Once you have Shozuku busy, he won't be able to activate whatever weapon that he has. Based on the situation, you imagine that if you were to attack now they'd relay a message to him somehow and he'd destroy the city, along with all of your friends.

"I'll go. But, there's one thing I wanted to say."

She raises an eyebrow. "Hm?"

"How can he call anyone a coward when he's just hiding behind his immortality?"

Her face stays as calm as ever. "You'll have to ask him that yourself. From what I understand, however, Shozuku didn't choose to become immortal. He was forced to be what he is."

Flashes of all the scenes of violence and murder that you've seen as a direct result of him pass through your mind. You find yourself clenching your fists. "That's not true! He made his choices every time someone died! He could have walked away at any moment, but he didn't!"

Mari puts a hand on your shoulder. "Takeshi..just go!"

You nod. "Yeah. I'll be back soon!"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fQuEqwQ2I4

You walk forward, passing the enemy shinobi by and marching through the stone doors they came from. You're walking down a long stone hallway, that gets continually wider as you go forward. At the very end of the tunnel is natural sunlight. At once you're reminded of the Chunin Exams, and the final tournament. The way the applause poured down when you stepped through the light was unlike anything you'd felt before.

Now as you step through, there's no applause, but the howling of the wind can be heard clearly. You're standing in a huge, circular arena with a dusty dirt floor. All around you, behind a 10 foot tall stone wall, are bleachers also carved from stone. At the top off the huge cavern, a hole opens up to the sky above, illuminating the arena with the sunlight of noon.

Burning a hole in your head with his stare, is Shozuku. He's wearing a black tank top, and has his katana strapped to his side. In comparison to you, fully decked out in combat gear and equipment. Not to mention your Jet Sheath. Behind him, on an altar with a velvet pillow, rests a glowing crystal ball, with a black and green energy swirling within it.

"I've met your request. What's the point of all this?"

He takes a few steps forward, coming into the light. "Whenever we meet, things seem to get in the way. Either you can't stop saving your friends and won't fight me, or you've got someone on your side that's a bit too much to handle. But finally I've got a way to drag you out into the open. That crystal ball back there behind me, recognize it?"

You shake your head. "Vaguely, but not really. I've probably seen all kinds of tacky crystal balls in shops.."

He frowns. "No, you idiot. On a mission you went on. Koji, that traitor, stole the orb and tried to see what kind of power he could draw from it. It gave him wild visions of power, but me and my scientists weren't distracted by this. We discovered the orb is nothing but a receptacle for Chakra. A vast enough one that it could hold a Tailed Beast captive."

Suddenly, the gears all click together for you. Looking at the swirling energy, you recognize it to be the same vile chakra that the Five-Winged Dragonfly had. The one that Hanto fended off, once.

Shozuku points his thumb backwards. "All I gotta do is break that thing, and a monster gets unleashed right in the middle of your country. So don't fuck with me here."

You slightly widen your stance, getting ready for combat. Hopefully it shouldn't be too long before Mari can come and assist you.

"Well, what are we waiting for then?" you say with a smile.

He shakes his head. "Not yet. It took you a little fighting to get here, right? You better take a solder pill, replenish your energy. I know you have them."

You take his advice, and crunch the pill for a boost of energy. Your chakra reserves are roughly back to 100%

"Don't you think all that is a little...obsessive?"

He roars at you. "Shut up and fight!"

You form three Water Clones, and have them all sprint ahead at him. They fan out in multiple directions, crossing over each other's paths and weaving in and out consistently. You throw senbon through the gaps in their movement, and Shozuku reacts by swaying to the left and right just slightly, not making any more movement than necessary to dodge the attacks.

The clones reach him, and engage in close combat while you form the handsigns for False Sense: Fatigue.

The technique lands successfully! You start to think of another plan to attack with, but then things change. He draws his katana and cuts apart two of your clones with one armed swings, but the third strikes him directly in the solar plexus with a straight punch. Your eyebrow goes up in confusion. "Hm. Didn't actually expect to hit him there. There goes my Genjutsu.."

The pain Shozuku feels cancels out your technique. He recovers with shocking speed from the punch, lashing out with a stab to destroy the last Water Clone.

You look at him with a furrowed brow, thinking. You managed to land the first hit, but you had to use more chakra than you'd want to do so. He starts to march towards you, slowly picking up into a run and then a sprint. Shozuku holds his katana up with both hands, ready to engage.

Your clones fill the arena, but Shozuku doesn't hesitate in his sprint. As he enters the body of your illusions, he holds his sword out and begins to slash it wildly in every direction. You can see clear moments to pierce his timing, but it'd be dangerous to get anything more than a basic attack in.

Rolling out of the way of a sword swipe, you try to formulate a new idea to attack with. Going through your list of techniques, you decide that unleashing the Chakra Scalpel now is your best move. It's a technique he hasn't seen you use before, in addition to doing a critical amount of damage anywhere it lands.

Staying low, you rush at him from behind while he randomly swings his katana about. Just as you're ready to dive in, you stop though. He spins around on his pivot foot on a whim, and the tip of his blade nearly grazes your nose. Your laughing clones all leap away from him, leaving Shozuku in the center.

Even though he's not even hitting the clones, he keeps swinging his sword in an abnormal rhythm. Just when you think he's taking a break or making a wide swing, he pivots on his foot and does another sharp cut directly behind him. It takes you a moment, but you realize that he's going through combat forms with his sword as a means of defense. The strokes of his blade act as a shield, and he always turns to begin attacking his blind spot after a pause in rhythm.

You try to fake him out with a few clones to see if you can sneak up on him, but the same thing happens. He cuts through the clones, and turns to cut exactly where you were about to jump in a moment later.

He's responding to every feint as if it were a legitimate threat.

>A. Throw down a Smoke Bomb and then attack with Chakra Scalpel while he's blinded
>B. Create some Water Clones to begin your attack, and then when he's faced them use Chakra Scalpel

There is this genjutsu we never used that provokes pain, use that so he thinks we are attacking from behind him and make an opening.

A genjutsu that provokes pain? Are you sure you're not thinking of a poison you have that causes lots of pain?
>>
>>2127158
I am sure. It wouldn't be the first time we completely forget about the hundreds of jutsus we have.
>>
>>2127167
I can't remember using anything like this, just the poison that has a similar effect.

Do you remember when it was used/when you learned it? It's possible it did get trained quickly and was forgotten about but I can't think of anything

>>2127194
what's it called?

Anon is thinking of the Flame Genjutsu.
>>
>>2127203
Is causes pain that they dont wake up from. Can cause them to pass out from it.
>>
>>2127197
I dunno, false pain? I remember some anon compared it to Fake out from Pokemon
>>
>>2127213
I think I do remember this actually, but I believe the effect was something like, aggravate an already present source of pain.

So if he had a tiny cut or something, you could make it hurt much worse than it actually does.

There are a handful of techniques missing from your skill list and I believe this is one of them.
>>
>>2127213
do remember around when we learned it?
>>
>>2127226
>aggravate an already present source of pain
Imagine how much that would fuck him up if we stacked that with the fireplume extract
>>
>>2127227
I remember it was one of the many jutsus from the books on the academy
>>
Being immortal he's probably pretty used to pain.
>>
>>2127246
You cause anything enough pain, the brain is just gonna shut down.
That said, we probably can't make Sho pass out via pain, but we can seriously throw him off his game.
>>
>>2127226
I found it, thread 54
>A. Pain Destruction Jutsu. A ranged, direct mental attack that's designed to activate pain receptors in the target's brain. The strength of the Genjutsu is dependent on the user's skill, as pain normally releases one from a Genjutsu. It causes no damage, but if the target is already suffering from another soruce of pain, or begins to suffer from another source of pain, the illusion will vanish. Therefore this technique has no effect on wounded targets.

Going to go with a 10 minute revote, to let people make their choice again after that discussion.

>>
You have to alter your timing. He's expecting you to dodge and then attack, as part of your usual rhythm, but instead you'll have to be more aggressive. Attack as soon as his attack finishes, and you'll land the hit!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-ZRsSposHA

Dashing forward at top speed, you step in just as his sword swipe ends. You bring a glowing blue hand up at lightning speed, reaching out to touch his sword arm and disable him. All you need is to graze him, and you'll be able to sever the tendons.

His eyes light up when you step in front of him, however. To some degree, he must have been expecting you to fight him head on like this. Or rather, he was hoping. As your fingertips nearly graze his forearm, he pulls it back and rears his own head back.

Shozuku cracks his own head onto yours, landing a headbutt. You're stunned briefly, and duck under a horizontal sword stroke.

Your opponent keeps swinging at the air, seemingly baiting you into close combat with him.

This time when you dash in front of him, you shoot your hand forward at high speed.

But stop it, mid motion. His advanced reflexes cause him to start the motion for a counter attack, before he can read your feint.

Shozuku's body twists and dodges out of the way of a hand that never came, and you lean back and avoid the punch that was coming in response. Now he's off balance.

You shoot your other hand forward, and grip his shoulder, wiping away at it gently. Such a calm motion brings a roar from Shozuku, who grips his shoulder and kicks you in the stomach, sending you flying back outside of the crowd of Haze Clones.

You clutch your gut, smiling. He's knocked the wind out of you just now, but there's no serious damage. You observe him from afar. From what you can tell, his shoulder has a bruise rapidly forming in the shape of a handprint on it.

He explodes outwardly from the crowd, leaping high into the air. Shozuku bites the grip of his sword while he forms handsigns.

As he falls towards you, he takes his sword in one hand, but the other starts to glow a caustic green.

Your hair stands on edge. If he touches you with that hand, you'll become a ticking time bomb.

>A. Use your Jet Sheath to fend him off

As he's falling towards you, you go through several handsigns and grin. He knows by now that you've been practicing fire style techniques for a while, so hopefully this will throw him off.

You point upwards, and jets of purple flame lick off your fingertip and rocket towards him. Shozuku is completely enveloped by the sudden flames, twisting out of control and yelling in surprise. At least, that's how it looks to him. From your perspective he's simply lost control of his body.

He hits the dirt floor limply, the shock of landing causing him to bounce off the ground once before hitting the ground a second time. He slowly starts to stand to his feet, dazed and confused. You line up a shot with a poisoned senbon, giving him a dose of the Fireplume extract right on top of the wound you caused with the Chakra Scalpel.

Shozuku's head shoots up, and he roars, ripping out the needle. You imagine not even he can deal with the immense pain he must be feeling right now.

He stands up, trembling. He forms the Shadow Clone Jutsu, and creates a copy of himself. The clone hangs back and starts to form handsigns, while the real Shozuku picks up his sword yet again and comes rushing at you, at top speed.

That's all for tonight folks! I'll either be running again tomorrow night, or the next night! I'll be around for questions for a little while.

Thanks for running Mini.
Hopefully we didn't send Mari off to her own execution or nothing like that.
How are Hanto and his team doing?
Is Ai kicking ass as per usual?

>>2127557
Mari's currently handling the three outside that you left her with.

Hanto and his team are in the middle of retreating while the main force arrives. They got surrounded part way into the mission.

Ai's been doing a great job of killing many cultists

>>2127571
I got an absolute buttload a few threads back. I'll post it all at the end of the quest.
>>
>>2127553
Wow this us going better than expected.
Should I be proud of our expert decision making, or is this only the tip of the iceberg?
>>
>>2127599
A bit of both, really.

While you haven't been hit yet, at the rate that you're using your jutsu to keep up with him, I'd say you're both about even. You've gotten in a couple hits and he wasted an S ranked jutsu's chakra.

Remember that he's pretty used to fighting while injured/exhausted though
>>
>>2127603
let's see how he fights when he's beheaded
>>
>>2127603
Did we do more than bruise his shoulder? I was hoping for ligament and tendon damage.
>>
>>2127643
His shoulder is pretty meaty so it was mostly surface damage, but it's enough that arm of his won't be able to fight as strongly.
>>
>>2127647
how's his shoulder with the poison and the genjutsu phantom paining him?
>>
>>2127661
It occurs to me that while he's flailing we could prepare Paralyzing bells. Hit him with the sleep poison too, then ride out the fight until he's too sluggish to fight.
The coup de grace would be when he uses the last of his chakra to try and melt us, which we counter with Base Release. Bam, the despair is complete, and he gives in to the sleep. We then take his fucking head off and bring it to Naruto, sealed in a box.
>>
>>2127647
Think we could get an omake soon? Maybe of Naruto inviting us to eat dinner with his family?
>>
>>2127708
Yesssss moar cute Himawari doing cute things.
>>
>>2127708
That sounds likely.

Not sure when but I do want to do a bunch of stuff like that
>>
>>2127736
You know what we do need a side story for?
Mari's fight.
Not sure if it'd be a good idea to do before or after we're done with Shozoku due to possible pacing issues, but I'd like to see it some time.
>>
>>2127744
agreed
>>
>>2127744
That's doable.

There's so many things to do in terms of extra content I'll probably get to whatever people ask for the most, so keep things like this in mind
>>
>>2127661
Oh, it hurts like a motherfucker. If he wasn't experienced at handling pain he'd probably be crying
>>
>>2127841
Well let's see for how long he can keep himself focused. Also it seems we must use more poison so he never forgets the pain we can cause him.
>>
>>2127924
For the brief few minutes he remains alive.
>>
>>2127924
Need to tag him with the generic poison to drain his chakra

The real Shozuku keeps sprinting at full speed towards you. You're standing outside the circle of Haze Clones that you've made, near the edge of the arena. The fight's been going well enough so far. He's managed to land a headbutt and a kick on you, but the wounds that you've inflicted in response should hamper him considerably more.

Honestly, you're surprised he's still able to move as quickly and cleanly as he can. You have to wonder what kind of battles he's been through to be so determined.

The Shadow Clone that he's made stands in the center of all your Haze Clones. You're unsure what it's doing, but a few seconds later you realize what's happening. The clone sprouts a long, green whip of liquid. It must be an Acid Whip jutsu, an alternate version of the Water Whip. The clone of Shozuku starts to swing it around him rapidly, quickly destroying many of your clones and rapidly draining your chakra to reform them. In order to conserve energy, you cancel the Haze Clone jutsu.

The real Shozuku is nearly upon you. What do you want to do?

>A. Fight him head on with your Jet Sheath. With one armed weakened he shouldn't be as difficult to handle

Hmmm. As long as he has that Shadow Clone out, we have to worry about being attacked from multiple angles. There's nothing to distract the clone now, so this just became a two on one. On the other hand, he's also split his chakra, meaning it'll be harder for him to pull out his big guns.

A is higher risk because the clone can pincer us in melee. On the other hand, Shou wants a "fair" fight, and giving it to him might just be the best option here.

C is the "safer" option, and might give us more time to deal with the clone, and it might make him waste more chakra. However it also gives them time to regroup. Plus, the clone might see through it.

You crouch slightly, gripping the hilt of your blade and preparing the Jet Sheath. Your heart beats harder as Shozuku rushes towards you, with his clone in the back starting a slow walk.

The green light flashes on with a beep, indicating that your weapon is ready. In an explosion of dust, you shoot forward in a flash to meet Shozuku's charge. He swings his katana downwards with one arm, just as you bring your blade up in a lightning speed swipe.

Sparks fly everywhere as his sword arm is blasted back, and he loses balance. The katana flies from his hand, all the way to the other side of the arena. You take another step forward, bashing him with your shoulder and knocking him to the ground. Shozuku is sprawled out on his back, and rolls to the side to avoid your sword as you stab downwards into the earth.

Shozuku rolls to his feet, glaring at you like a wounded animal. Just as you yank your sword out of the dirt and his Shadow Clone slings the whip made of acid at your head.

It snaps with a crack as you leap back and put your arms, and droplets of the caustic liquid flick. You grit your teeth from the pain, despite only lightly being sprayed the sensation is horrible. It's as if hundreds of insects are biting at your flesh and ripping it apart, even if the damage is just superficial.

In this moment of distraction, the real Shozuku barrels into you from the side. He thrusts a right straight directly into your blocking arms, blasting your guard back and punching you in the face.

You're staggered, and blood starts to drip from your nose slightly. For just a moment your vision is distorted, and you reach down to attempt and activate your Jet Sheath again.

However, before it can charge up, he's upon you again. Shozuku throws rough, full body punches coming in from every angle. You can do little else but put your guard up to deal with the assault, and he's battering you around. He's not really doing any damage to you, but eventually he'll find a hole in your defenses.
>>
>>2131632

You think that you're starting to understand his fighting style. He always presses forward, willing to take as much damage as possible to land a single hit and try to turn the tide. You didn't really realize it at first, but the constant pressure of having someone in your face means that you won't have time to set up your more advanced techniques.

Through your guard you can see his frantic eyes. At one point when you fought him, he was smiling and laughing. It was fun for him. But now you can see he truly intends to kill you.

The Shadow Clone he created is running around the arena, intending to circle behind you and lash your back with the Acid Whip. What do you do?

>A. Focus as well as you can, and try to memorize the timing of his rough punches. When he makes a wide shot, fire off a single punch in the middle of his and then escape to the other side of the arena.
>B. Focus entirely on dodging, and avoid his attacks instead of blocking them. Make some space.
>C. Do a backflip, and use the Acid Neutralization Jutsu to turn his Acid Whip into a Water Whip, and destroy the clone as it's surprised.
>D. Write-in

>>
>>2131694
You no longer have that poison anymore, it was a limited supply.

You can do this with the generic poison though, which isn't a bad idea.
>>
>>2131635

>B. Focus entirely on dodging, and avoid his attacks instead of blocking them. Make some space.
>>
>>2131702
Regular poison will only irritate him. He has boil release and healing jutsu, which means he likely has some way of neutralizing poison in his own body.
>>
>>2131702
Oh well. It might bu i guess it would leave us open against his clone acid whip. The poison was more to stop him and allow us to use him as a shield against his clones attack.

But if i'm supported maybe we cab do it but it seems unlikely.
>>
>>2131650

I don't want to reveal that card yet, and I think >>2131658 may be right. Also he's in our face and we can't pull off any advanced moves.

On the other hand, normal poison also isn't a bad idea.
>>
>>2131713
I think it needs concetration to do it. Otherwise he would have already removed the pain poison we put on him.

But it's still a bad idea to do this kind of move against someone that is able to melt your face.
>>
>>2131732
The bubbles and the mist aren't that advanced
>>
>>2131713
>QM says it isn't a bad idea
>"No it would only irritate him"


????
>>
>>2131732
The longer we let that clone live the more we risk to be crippled with acid.
>>
>>2131745
No, but they are chakra hogs. He's using more chakra than us, and likely to run out before us at this rate.
>>
Uh, guys i just realized we are still using our weights...
>>
>>2131745
By advanced I more so mean "time consuming", like activating your Jet Sheath, using Paralyzing Bells, or forming handsigns for jutsu more complex than say, Great Fireball or Water Bullets. All those things take a small moment of preparation.

>>2131758
It's not quite a continual drain. Each technique works differently.

Your Haze Clones cost chakra to reform after they're destroyed, but the cost is minimal. So unless a lot are destroyed at once it's not very draining, aside from the initial cost of the jutsu.

Shadow Clone Jutsu divides his chakra pool according to how he wants. So he could say, put 25% of his chakra into the clone, enough to have it do plenty of techniques.

Plus if the clone is destroyed, he'll get a portion of the chakra left in the clone back.
>>

Dirn't we specifically train them to be chakra efficent?

Well i guess regular poison is the best card specialy if it makes him slow of force him to make the clone to extract the poison inside him.

Also just a refresh what ddid regular poison did again?
>>
>>2131791
It wears down someone's physical condition over time. After about 10 minutes most people are sweating bullets and feel heavily fatigued, like inducing a fever. A single senbon is one dose, and multiple doses cause the effect to hit faster.

although if we manage to lend three doses of poison it make him even more weak.

Yes. It's easier to just dodge and get away, and then try to do something, than stand in front of him and do it.

You take a few more punches, blocking each one with careful precision. Your arms are in a lot of pain, and you're not sure if you'll be able to hold on for much longer. You wait until he winds up a big hook, and duck under it. With a short backstep, you're out of his punching range. Leaning back slightly, you avoid his knuckles by a hair's breadth when he throws another right straight.

You take this pause to press the button on your Jet Sheath, charging it up.

Taking another small step backwards, you kneel down and flip into the air just as a whip of acid strikes the ground where you were standing a moment before. As you do this, the real Shozuku leaps back and retrieves his sword on the other side of the arena.

Spinning in the air, you flip around while forming handsigns. This will be the first time you attempt to use this technique on the battlfield.

You lock eyes with the Shadow Clone of him. It draws the whip back and flicks it upwards, intending to hit you before you can land. The light on your Jet Sheath beeps as it turns green, and you activate the Acid Neutralization technique.

All around you, a white mist bursts outwards. The whip enters the field of mist, and as it does, it's caustic green color becomes clear once more.

The whip hits you in the stomach, a bit like a hard punch, but you were anticipating it. You flex your stomach muscles just as you're hit, absorbing the damage slightly. While you start your downwards arc, you explode forward in a burst of wind and mist, destroying his Shadow Clone with a precise sword stroke to the neck.

You turn around and glare at him, your eyes burning. You haven't said anything, but your stance communicates it all. Did you see what I just did? I'm coming for you.

You're both standing on the opposite ends of the arena.

He grits his teeth, a vein nearly bursting on his forehead. His knuckles turn white while he clenches his fists. He takes a deep breath.

"That's... Impressive."

You smirk.

>A. "Thanks." Let him move first, and then react.
>B. "Give up. My friends will be here soon, and I've disabled your best moves." Let him move first, and then react.

"Thanks." You say, undoing the straps on your legs.

Shozuku cocks an eyebrow from across the arena. "What are you doing?"

You hold up the training weights in each hand, at arm's length. "I'm gonna stop holding back, now."

He crosses his arms, and chuckles. "Taking a few training weights off isn't going to help you, you know. That won't make a significant difference. But fine, let's see this 'speed' of yours."

It makes you want to laugh. It's so clear that he's spent his whole life, tucked away in some dark corner training. If he had the slightest bit of knowledge about the history of the Leaf Village, he'd understand the danger he's in. But he doesn't, which is exactly the edge you need.

https://youtu.be/d1DPcDwdBcU

You drop the weights, and the explosion of dust covers your position. You can see Shozuku's arms drop back into a fighting position, as he's clearly surprised.

You move in.

With your very first step, you throw yourself off balance. You rocket forward at a speed you hadn't thought possible with your body, your perception around you becoming warped and blurry. You fly through the air for about ten feet, before stopping briefly. "W-woah!"

You lightly bounce on the balls of your feet, holding up your fists. You punch the air a couple times, trying to get a feel for it. "That should be good."

With the next step, you vanish entirely from the battlefield.

Shozuku walk forward slowly, looking all around him in a confused fashion. He creates another Shadow Clone, and has it face him back to back. The two pale cultists circle each other, unsure of what's happening.

He mutters. "What's going on..?"

You appear in front of him with a smile. "Nothing at all!"

Your fist moves so quickly, that to him, it appears as if it didn't move at all. Your hand simply got larger and impacted his face. The clone behind him turns around to face you, but before he can fully turn on his heels, you vanish once more and appear behind him.

You jam a kunai into the spine of the clone, dissipating it instantly. Shozuku spins around again, paler than usual. Your muscles feel electrified, and your senses are pushing themselves to the limit. Truthfully, you feel ecstasy rushing through your whole body. The adrenaline is incredible. You smile. "These are just the results of training."

Flicking your wrist forward, it moves faster than he can see. Three poisoned senbon hit his bruised shoulder, and he swipes at you with his sword in response.

The sword stroke follows through, seemingly slicing right through you. A moment later, the after image wavers and dissipates.
>>
>>2132038
>Literally who?
Kiba's daughteru
>>
>>2132042

Shozuku's mouth goes agape, completely stunned. From behind, you explode forward with your Jet Sheath. The combined boost from the sheath and your current speed, actually warp your perception enough to experience tunnel vision. Not only are you outpacing his senses, but you're starting to outpace your own.

You go to stab directly into his spine, and end the fight. However, he reacts without really knowing where you are, and jumps directly into the air, as high as he can. Your swipe only manages to graze his calf, but blood flows freely from it all the same. He looks down, and goes through a high number of handsigns. "If I can't see you...I'll DESTROY EVERYTHING!!"

He uses the Acid Dragon Jutsu, and a caustic monster sprouts from his mouth and crashes directly into the center of the arena, filling the stadium with the bubbling liquid. The stone seats are splashed with froth from the tide, burning holes in it and the walls. You sprint along the edges of the arena, circling the stone seats until you bounce off and kick him out of the air, directly down.

He manages to land using his Acid Walking Jutsu, and looks up at you, furious.

"Bastard...Bastard!"

Your speed will last for 2 more posts.

He keeps forming handsigns, preparing his next Jutsu.

You also do so, leaping directly over the pool of Acid. It's going to take a lot of chakra to match his Acid Dragon, probably more than you've ever used at once.

Packing all the chakra you can muster into the technique, the entire cave is packed full of a sudden white mist. The green liquid turns back into water, in just a few moments. However, as you do so, Shozuku's technique completes. "Shadow Clone Jutsu!"

Then, his clone uses the Water Beast Jutsu as Shozuku turns back to you.

From the water, humanlike torso with the head of a wolf bursts out. It's roughly a story tall, and can easily reach any point in the cave.

At least you can move around without having to worry about serious injury, now.

Shozuku forms another handsign, but before he can complete it, you rush in to slash him with your Wakizashi. You cut him across the chest with a horizontal swipe once, just barely missing his throat. He managed to react barely, and backstep.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Kp5MU5WeXs

But now, you have him in your clutches. You dash forward once more, intending to stab him.

He's completely unable to avoid the technique. Despite the Water Beast above you turning to try and strike, there's no chance at all for him to be quick enough. He makes a couple handsigns quickly, but you imagine this is his last desperate attempt at fighting back.

With a final thrust, you aim your blade directly at his stomach.

For a brief moment, before you make contact, you happen to look into his eyes, and you find that they're devoid of fear.

Your blade pierces him, cleanly sliding through and poking out of his back. However..

He's twisted his body slightly, shifting your sword to the other side. Despite impaling him, due to your small blade, all you've managed to pierce is flesh.

You move to pull it back out of him, intending to twist and cause more damage. However, something enters your peripheral vision. Even with your advanced speed, Shozuku was able to predict that your next move would be to try and kill him. His hand isn't actually heading towards any part of your body, but instead, your Jet Sheath. Despite you being able to see it move in slow motion thanks to your enhanced reflexes, you know that there's nothing you'll be able to do to avoid your Sheath being touched by his hand, that's glowing a caustic green.

It's a dual exchange.

He grabs the sheath, and at once it's mechanical intricacies start to fail from the acidic damage.

You have one post of advanced speed left.

>A. Yank the blade out of him, twisting as hard as you can. Try to overwhelm him with sword slashes.
>B. Leave the blade inside of him, and disengage. Pepper him and his shadow clone from afar with Senbon.
>C. Headbutt him, and leave the blade inside of him. Draw a kunai and throw it at the shadow clone with your right hand, while you use your left to keep Shozuku at bay.

It's a temporary buff from removing your training weights.

You'll still have a speed boost once it wears off, but it's not as significant as the temporary one.

Explosive tags to the chest and disengage. I think two soldier pills is still fine so pop another one.

>>2132188

You throw your palm forward slapping down an explosive tag onto his chest.

Shozuku's eyes go wide as he sees this. You pause for a brief moment before letting go of your blade and jumping back.

As you're jumping away, your heightened senses let you clearly see what his next move is. Shozuku reaches down and rips his shirt off in one smooth motion, throwing it and the tag directly down into the water underneath of him. With his other hand, Shozuku withdraws his own kunai on an explosive tag, and launches it upwards. You narrowly manage to dodge it by contorting your body, thankfully.

In this same moment, your tag goes off.

The water was able to dissipate the impact somewhat, but Shozuku and his clone are both destroyed at once regardless. He's shot directly backwards, flipping through the air while his Water Beast falls apart. He smacks the stone wall, face first, and the sword inside of him is shot out from this motion.

Blood spurts out of his wound, and he crumbles onto the stone seats.

Then, the tag that he threw goes off just as you land.

Part of the cave collapses directly above you from the explosion, and you use your last burst of speed to blast to the side and evade it.

You hit the stone steps tumbling, scraping up your arms and legs.

The water in the arena is draining out of the exits, leaving it muddy.

You're starting to get exhausted, but this fight should nearly be over. Shozuku is poisoned, impaled, bruised, battered and beaten. He should have nothing left inside of him.

You look up, and see that he's already struggling his way up to his feet.

I have to go for about 10 minutes, but I'll be back with the vote choices in a few. In the mean time consider what to do next.

Pop a pill just in case. This guy lives on the edge. This is where he has the most experience.

The sword should be somewhere between us and him. If we make a beeline straight towards him while he's struggling to stand, we should have him on the back foot of a melee with our sword in hand and him unarmed. A straight fight, except the deck is stacked heavily in our favor.

>>2132330
Getting the orb should be priority number 1. I suggest using the Roof Tile Shuriken Jutsu to get it.
>>
>>2132330
Jesus christ we kicked the shit out of him this round
>>
okay so I suggest we pop the underdog seal.
Then we put up haze clones and a single water clone behind Shozoku.
Water bullet to make him dodge, have the water clone get him in a lock when he does.
Then we set up paralysing bells and slap a tag on his forehead
>>
>>2132330
We still haven't used Underdog. He has no idea we have it.
We have this. We just need one more big hit, but we have no jet sheath.

I say we do something to make an opening for the sleep poison. It'll slow him down further at worst and make him pass out at best.
>>
>>2132352
We can't choose to pop underdog, it happens when we run out of chakra
>>
>>2132352
Does underdog get popped voluntarily, or does it activate when we're all out?
>>
I don't think we even need a big finisher. Simply stacking more poison in him should do the trick.
>>
>>2132357
for reals?
regardless, my plan should work then
>>
We could really use that back up now.
>>
>>2132359
Yeah, and we still got that Dream Cotton Extract poison right? That should knock him out.
>>
>>2132346
It's incredible what smart write in can acomplish in a quest.

We could just pop a pill and mass impale him with roof tile shuriken

wait did we ever use the wrist mounted senbon launchers?
>>
>>2132368
oh yeah we never really did test out that roof tile senbon/kunai thing.
>>
>>2132362
And if that doesn't knock himout/ slow him down the blood loss should be kicking in any moment now so that should do something to him.
>>
>>2132373
Do we even have enough chakra for haze clones though?
>>
>>2132374
Not yet. If we get locked in melee, then we can.
>>
>>2132358
Only when we are out.

>>2132360
For real. Maybe we can improve it if we start looking up for more stuffs about sealling.

You can see that he's now standing. He looks like a walking corpse, but even then there's still a small amount of strength and fluidity in his motions.

He leaps back down into the muddy arena.

You notice that he's now walking towards the orb, and ignoring you.

They can do all kind's of shit. Mostly laying traps, sealing off abilities, and delayed jutsu. There's also more practical ones that create barriers or non-elemental attacks.

You summon a Fuuma Shuriken from one of the scrolls you have, and unfurl it.

Holding out your hand, you line up the shot the best that you can. You throw it as hard as you can, and it starts to sing through the air to your target.

Shozuku looks up, and sees the blade coming. He limply falls to the side before it hits him, probably lacking the strength to move quickly.

The blade misses, and he crawls back up to his feet while you perform the jutsu for the Roof Tile Shuriken Jutsu. You only have a small amount of chakra left now. Enough for your basic jutsu, and maybe a few Shunshin. Cancelling out all the acid earlier cost a lot, not to mention the effects of the soldier pill from earlier wearing off. The previous battle drags you down too.

The orb floats briefly for a moment, and then, starts to shoot towards you in an arc. Once you have it, you'll leave this place, and Shozuku will fall soon enough from the poison!

You prepare to catch it. Knowing that if it shatters, all hell will be unleashed, and you'll probably be killed in an instant.

Then, you notice movement on your peripheral. It's Shozuku, who's now launched himself through the air using Shunshin.

He catches the orb midair, and his back hits the stone steps with an audible crack. He screams in pain, and rolls down the stairs until he falls back into the muddy arena.

You jump down so that you can see him, and start to throw senbon at him. The needles you throw prick him, but don't seem to have any kind of effect. He's lifting the orb high above his head, about to crack it against the side of the arena wall.

But, you quickly load a senbon with dream cotton poison, and throw it at his side.

Shozuku saw this, and again, to conserve energy, simply falls to the side to avoid your attack. He tries to crack the orb as he falls, but the muddy earth makes it impossible.

He worms his way back up, using the wall for support, and turns to look at you with hateful eyes.

You step to move and throw a kunai, but your legs are trembling. The exertion from moving at such a high speed is exhausting you even further, now.

You realize that you're drenched in sweat, and your forehead is throbbing.

Shozuku throws the orb into the center of the muddy arena, and starts to walk towards you. He growls at you from a distance. "Yeah..Yeah! This is what I wanted! Come on, Takeshi! Come on! Why don't you get over..."

He rockets forward with another Shunshin, probably dipping into the very last reserves he has left.

"AND KILL ME!!!"
>>
>>2132593

He throws a full body right straight at you, and you can feel his spirit pushing you back. You block the blow, but your arms are starting to become heavy.

You duck under another one of his punches, and ram your fist into the gaping wound on his torso. He doubles over with a scream, folding his whole body to slam his head down and headbutt you again.

This blow really shakes you, crunching your nose further and causing it to gush blood once more.

Your vision is dazed.

You step forward to meet him head on.

Shifting to the side, you use the head movement that you've been practicing with your brother and Kichiro to avoid his punches. Shozuku has a habit of throwing every punch with all of his strength, so the motion is generally wide enough to predict.

You easily slip past the first punch.

Then the second.

With the third, you punch him in the face, countering his shot and dealing even more damage

He throws a hook, and you duck under it. Then when he throws another right straight, you shift your head to the side and bring your leg up in a flash, using a side kick to strike his wound.

Shozuku briefly doubles over, and you take another step and slam down your right straight as hard as you can while his jaw is exposed. However, as you do so, he comes up with a swing to meet you.

The two of you strike each other at the same time. He slumps, and you're nearly knocked over, a cut over your eye bleeding and fading into your vision.

You spit the blood out of your mouth, from the nosebleed. You wipe your eyes with your jacket, removing some of the mud and blood.

He's wobbling, but still standing.

Expertly, you dash forward and fake throwing a punch. He responds, whiffing his next left hook.

With this, you come in with a full left uppercut, slamming your knuckles into his jaw and spraying blood everywhere.

You push into his chest, and unleash the senbon launcher point blank. Ripping the wire, a flurry of needles press into the other side of his torso, where isn't wounded. This should restrict his movements even further.

He swings an uppercut at you, and you sway back to avoid it.

His fist barely grazes your chin. He's off balance now, and you raise up a left to punch him in the jaw and end the battle.

But a sudden burst of speed from him shocks you. He's used the Shunshin technique again to suddenly explode forward as he was falling, and his forehead crashes into your own jaw this time, sending you flying back multiple feet.

You've been physically knocked unconscious. As you still have a bit of chakra left, your Underdog seal won't be waking you up.

Shozuku pants, standing above you, barely conscious. He has a half smile on his face, finally satisfied.

Well either our friends are gonna have to come in and save our ass or he is about to finally lose what little strength he has left and go down like a bag of bricks.
>>

Why are we so tired suddenly anyways? We've used maybe a fraction as much chakra as him, he'd have to be a Jinchuriki or proto-Kisame to still have that much more than us.

Or he poisoned us early on. The fucker.

>>2132719
Guys it's a faint we are pretending to be knocked out so we can make him lower his guard and use the sebon's on him.
>>
>>2132731
I still call bullshit. Him winning, hell him being able to fight at all, is practically QM fiat by this point. It takes some of the joy out of winning to still get shafted by someone we've done THIS much damage to, while taking barely any ourselves.
>>
He laughs.

"Yes! I beat him! Hahaha!! Haha..I beat him..I did it. I won! Hahaha.."

He simply stands there in a daze, blood pouring from multiple wounds. Face swelling. Needles sticking out from all over his body, a gaping wound in his torso.

"Hehehe..I won."

You start to get up.

He blinks.

As you stand, you put your fists up into a fighting pose, and then, you start to march towards him.

He takes a single step back. "W-what..What the fuck. Are you immortal too!?"

Your eyes tilt up slightly, and your gaze meets his. Shozuku's own eyes go as wide as can be, and he mutters the truth to himself, as no one else in the arena has the ears to hear it.

"He's unconscious, but.."

You fire off a punch, and slam it into his jaw.

Shozuku is pushed back a step, probably more surprised than hurt.

He puts his own hands up to respond, but his movements are too sluggish.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OvpzForHyU

You strike him again, this time with a one-two combo. He throws a left hook at you, striking your temple full on in a way that would surely knock someone out.

But you're already knocked out. You throw a knee into the wound on his side, and let loose a flurry of punches into his face.

Shozuku can do little else but put his arms up and guard. He waits for a gap in your attacks, and strikes back with another punch, hitting you in the face again.

But you keep coming at him. His vision meets your glazed over, bloody gaze, and the two of you strike each other again.

Every time he hits you, you respond by hitting him twice. Despite your total lack of consciousness, the training that you've built into your body keeps you going. Shozuku punches you in the stomach with a few hard shots, stepping forward and trying to knock you down with all of your might, but you weather the storm and slam another right straight into his jaw, knocking him back several feet this time.

He's too stunned to react to what happens next. You use the very last of your Chakra, and Shunshin forward to hit him with a left hook, chopping him down like a tree.

As your opponent falls, your unconscious body wavers. You circle the arena, looking for any sign of life, any threat.

Even though he's beaten, your body doesn't believe it. There's always another threat! There's always another surprise!!

You step forward, and keep throwing punches. With every heartbeat, your body screams it's mantra. "Win! Win! Win! Win! Win!"

After a few more punches at the air, you fall unconscious from Chakra exhaustion, and fall face first into the cold mud.

Cont.
>>
>>2132731
Shozuku still ""won"" even if he gets his ass beat seconds later by buddies.
>>
>>2132726
You fought earlier in the day and used a lot of chakra.

You healed people, used the summoning jutsu, fought multiple threats, and THEN came here and began your fight with him. Soldier pills help, but they're not free chakra refills.

You also had to use the Acid Neutralization Jutsu several times, including as a means to counteract one of his S rank jutsu. Using an S rank jutsu is like, 30% of your current chakra pool. Then, you also used your super speed for as long as you could.

Like, really, really cheap.

i don't feel we should have gone unconscious when we did, while still having Chakra to supplement our movements.

Getting up and fighting when unconscious...god, it just feels so...

I don't like it. I get why you did it, Mini, but...it would have been better to knock him out instead of getting knocked out.
>>
>>2132751
We finally did it. We achieved bullshit level. We beat an insane immortal who designed this encounter specifically to kill us, and not only did we beat him, but we didn't even activate our last trump card, the Underdog Seal, to finish the fight.

>>2132746
Takeshi willpower was always S++++

>>2132741
Mini, you're great. Really, you're an excellent writer and author. But what in the goddamn?

>>2132762
I meant the insanely stupid knocked unconscious but keeping on fighting.
>>
>>2132762
>>2132765
It feels like we got a fiat to lose the fight, and then a QM Ex Machina to "win" it. For Dramatic Effect.

>>2132758
I think Mini wants to repeat the feel at end of the Roku fight but it didnt went that well.
>>
>>2132769
It feels more like we could have won it in a lame way, but he wanted it to be done in a cool way instead.
>>
>>2132758
I don't think it's cheap i think it reflect Takeshi determination very well. Something that he had since the chuunin when he fougth the guy from Mary's team.

We just trained so hard that we reached a new level of bullshit. We don't die even when we are killed
>>
Great, we pulled a Rock Lee. Just like he did after Gaara crushed his limbs. He also got into a fighting stance while unconscious.
He'll be so proud when we tell him.
>>
>>2132769
I think Mini's desire to run Fighting Quest or whatever is starting to affect this one.
>>
>>2132769
Meh i liked it. So.e people might not like it but we did made our bed with our choicez and this is the result.
>>
Your Underdog Seal activates, and the pulse of chakra pushes you back into consciousness. You push your face out of the mud, and carefully look around.

Shozuku is also, slowly standing.

You sigh. You're not sure how you managed to knock him down, but you did.

What a freakish guy. You think he might be the only guy on the planet with more will to win than you.

Whatever the cause, you're not going to beat him without even remembering it.

The two of you stand up.

Shozuku looks at you for a few moments, simply panting.

He starts to walk away, heading towards the orb.

"Stay..Stay away from me! Get...away.."

He drags his limp body along, until breaking out in a pathetic run. "Stay away!"

He's probably intending to take the orb and run.

You sigh. Can't be helped. Gotta finish the mission though. You've probably got enough chakra for one, maybe two more jutsu in the state you're in.

I agree. It doesn't really fit the general themes of the quest, at least to me. Takeshi has always seemed all about the grit & grind to me. Plot bullshit is suitable to end a half for lesser MCs, but a slug-match KO would've been absolute kino

We were never knocked out in the Roku fight. That came from a determination to stay awake at all costs, because fuck losing.

In this, we won, but being barely standing after a long-fought battle wasn't epic enough. And it resulted in something so distinctly shonen that it was out of place in what had previously been a fight of tactics.

>>2132773
But this isn't cool. It's a lame 'Hurr Durr unconscious but I'm still fighting 'cause fuck you' thing. It feels like Mini basically said 'You aren't good enough to win, but I'm going to give it to you anyways.' That feels cheap. I feel like I got handfed a win that we've all been working for since Shozuku was introduced as a character.

It feels empty.

I hope it is. At this point, I just want to kill Shozuku and go home.
>>
>>2132796
Yeah it's kind of disappointing especially because we had good write ins and the fighting while unconscious thing makes no sense even in a ninja magic setting and it seems so pre scripted that it eliminates the feeling of accomplishment we should have had
>>
>>2132796
It might seem like you didn't work to get it, but the entire basis of Takeshi's character is the only thing that made it possible.

Fighting while unconscious is a real phenomenon, and it's only possible because of Takeshi's obsession with winning.

Your willpower outlasted someone who's quite literally immortal, and completely psychotic about victory. It was a clash between two people who were never, ever, ever going to give up unless they're dead.

I understand what you mean, but I'd hope you can see it as I do. Just like in the start, it's not because of any strength, or special techniques, or jutsu.

It happened because of who YOU are, and the choices you made in every day life.
>>
>>2132796
I get ya man, don't agree, but I get ya. If it feels empty to you, then I can't tell you it doesn't.

Maybe its because I've watched Ippo and I'm getting nostalgic, but I thought it was fine. Could have been better I suppose, but eh, what's done is done.
>>
>>2132784
>>C. Stop him with your senbon, and kill him.
I don't like the way we won either but eh, I doubt I am gonna like every single part of a quest, so I'll accept for now. Also fuck like we are gonna let acid boy live after all the shit he has done and can still do.
>>
>>2132837
You really want to run that boxing quest don't you man?
>>
>>2132837
But not because of anything we'd worked for throughout the quest. Months of preparation both IRL and in quest, tossed aside for the sake of a pre-scripted ending. It's about as fulfilling as the ending of ME3. Sure, all the loose ends get tied up in a nice, neat bow, but it was always going to be.

We were never going to be able to have a real victory over Shozuku, no matter how hard we tried. That's not emboldening, or reinforcing the image of 'YOU determine where this goes!' It's railroading, and it came about at the absolute worst time.

We should have just beaten him. It would have been immensely satisfying. But instead, he wins, and we only pull it out of our ass because of QM fiat. It wasn't our efforts that won us this fight. It was the QM basically going, 'Congrats, you win,' in the most jarring, tone-breaking way possible.

With Shonen 'I WANT TO WIN SO I WILL' logic.

We didn't win shit. We lost and got handed the 'Victory' screen anyways.

Have to agree with this guy. I understand where you're coming from Mini but it really felt jarring compared to the general themes of the quest. It wasn't us or takeshi being smart.

You throw a needle into the back of his knee, and he stumbles and falls. He rolls onto his back to try and crawl backwards, but you throw another into his knee cap.

His arm that you brushed with your Chakra scalpel is too weak to push him up, and he falters and falls in the mud. You throw another into his good shoulder, and he falls flat onto his back.

Marching forward slowly, you frown. He was really strong.

If his life wasn't so tragic, you can imagine how he'd be a close friend of yours in a way. Someone to always compete with and push you further. Not like you're lacking in that department, but even still...

You draw a kunai from your weapon's pouch, standing over him.

You feel to your knees, pinning his chest to the ground with them. You hold the blade up with both hands, and bring it down once, splitting apart the bone around his eye socket and jamming the blade into his brain.

You hammer fist the hilt of the kunai, sinking it in with a disgusting crack.

You stand, slowly, and look around the arena. The silence and the sunlight cover you.

This time, there is no applause.

The blood and grime have permeated every aspect of your being.

This is what it is to be a winner in war.

That's all for tonight folks! Come back next monday, where we'll be wrapping everything up!

Neither was him stabbing the blood clot and pouncing his enemy but look where that got us.

Having all of our work set aside in favor of 'I want it more!' does not inspire me to go through that level of training again. I wanted it to mean something. I didn't want to scrape by. I wanted to fucking win, with room to spare. To show that effective planning and tactics DOES actually mean something in this quest.

It doesn't. None of it matters. You'll lose if you make stupid decisions, but even if you make the right ones you'll only just barely win. There's no 'Do it well' regardless of how much effort is put in. There's a million ways to lose, and one way to win.

It motivates me to do as little as necessary to win and not worry about the consequences beyond that, because there's only ever one 'Win' scenario anyways. Why bother with months of prep and training when all we get is some shonen tier bullshit anyways? No solid, satisfying, hard-earned victory. Just...'Yeah, you lost, but you win anyways because of something you've never put any effort into.'
>>
>>2132867
There we go, that's a proper ending. Danke mini
>>
>>2132851
Mini while this guy is kinda salty about it, I agree. This, just feels hollow. Like the ending of Mass effect 3. Our tactical choices don't really matter we wrer going to get a scripted "Win" handed to us after losing, JUST like ME3. In a quest that is supposed to promote thinking and tactics, us passing out then somehow winning just seems counter to the entire theme. It makes all our plans and tactics and ideas seem utterly without merit.


>>2132868
Difference is we were still conscious and desperate. Here we got handed a win we should not have gotten.
>>
>>2132871
If we hadn't gone through all of what we did we would have lost though?
>>
>>2132862
Yeah, we've been bulding up for this fight for so long, I wanted to win it on our terms instead of following a script
>>2132867
Thanks for running Mini! Even if the end was a bit unsatisfactory, I think the win was well deserved and I'm glad of having helped.
>>
>>2132867
>This is what it is to be a winner in war.

Eh that was cool.
>>
What's funny is that the Underdog seal could have just activated in the first place instead of us fighting while unconcious, and nothing would have changed.
>>
>>2132868
Except that was smart. That was a win where we hadn't been knocked out like a bitch. That was where an opponent had a distinct advantage over us in every way, but we still beat him regardless of the damage to ourselves. That sort of suicidal determination to win was satisfying as fuck, and it got reflected in the boruto fight of the chunin exams.

This had none of that. We ground our opponent down to paste, but the QM wanted a dramatic moment. So we got KOed like a bitch, losing the fight, and then we get back up and keep fighting.

But hey, at least the QM got to use his scripted win.


>>2132890
I'd be happy about it. At least it'd have been something we put some miniscule effort into that won us the fight.
>>
>>2132756
>>2132758
>>2132769

I disagree, I liked it. Still, I admit I kinda get where you're coming from.

It's just, it would've been cool to see Lee keep trying to fight Gaara with two shattered limbs and no consciousness, but that can't happen in a tournament fight. But if Guy hadn't intervened, Lee would have tried anyway.

That's cool.
>>
>>2132890
Yeah this pretty much. It would have worked way better and functioned within known lore. Like maybe we used the shunshin for one last boost knowing we can knock ourselves unconscious to regain some ki. That would have been something Takeshi would do at this point.
>>
>>2132867
Thanks for running!
>>
Hopefully mini learns from this and doesn't do it again in this quest. Sure lee did it but we aren't;t exactly no Lee, he had determination and focused solely on body, we just have the determination. I guess I don;t feel as bad about this as others cause I really didn't care for this fight to begin with.
>>
>>2132893
It would have been cool, yes.

For Lee.

Someone whose approach to fighting is brute force and an implacable will. For him, fighting on even when he shouldn't is epic.

That's not who we are. Our gimmick is not 'He's still fighting even though he's unconscious!' Our thing is a bag of tricks that just doesn't run out. Always having an answer, a response, a clever riposte to whatever bullshit our opponent pulls.

Mini just kinda threw the bag of tricks we've spent months working on aside and said 'Nah, I wanna do this instead. You'll still win, but it won't be YOUR win, the kind you've worked so hard for for so long.'
>>
>>2132903
Lee also only STOOD, he would not have been able to fight. We were shaping chakra unconsciously somehow and making complex fight maneuvers.
>>
I'm just glad he's dead. I hate enemies that you defeat over and over again but then cutscene happens and he runs away.
It's over.
>>
>>2132867
A lot of good build up with a rather poor pay off
It was good enough I guess but I was expecting for it to be more exciting you know
>>
>>2132892
Anon, I'm writing a story over here. If I wrote every fight to please how YOU felt, this would be hot dogshit.

Quests aren't purely a game, they're also part story. And this is the story I wanted to write. It's easy to dismiss it as QM fiat as if it came out of nowhere, or railroading, but again, this isn't a video game for you to win.

Just because you did your best to optimize your stats and think around things, doesn't mean it's going to work out the way you thought. Welcome to life.

>>2132919
This I understand. It's not a flashy end by any means.
>>
>>2132924
Then don't expect people to put half as much heart as they did into the quest before if you're just going to disregard them.

I didn't want a flashy end. I wanted an end that fit the way we thought, and worked. This was the end you wanted. Nothing else really mattered. Not the months of effort leading up to it, not the dedication of your readers, not the in-character logic.

But fine. You'll still have people who enjoy the quest. I'm out. I just...really can't bring myself to read that last update anyways.
>>
>>2132924
Let me translate this from faggot to english

"I will fuck you in the ass as I please, there is nothing you can do to stop this."
>>
>>2132936
He didn't disregard us though. If you're this much of a baby how can you read anything but the most pandering quests?
>>
>>2132924
I wasn't expecting flash but it felt underwhelming is all
>>
>>2132924
>this isn't a video game for you to win.


Just saying this felt exacted like a scripted event from a video game over a quest win.

Takeshi is willful yes, but shaping chakra while KO'd? Making complex thinking fight maneuvers while Ko'd? That is just overpowered even by Naruto standards.

In the end, instead of playing Takeshi, it feels like we just pulled a Lee 2.0. Which would be fine, IF we were a Lee 2.0 but Takeshi is not. It honestly feels like the ending of MAss Effect 3 where we were scripted to lose no matter how well we did, then miraculously survive A super death laser that one shots floating space cities, and go on to a scripted win event we had no real control over.

It feels just like that ending that basically shat on all our hard work and time and said " does not matter at all."
>>
>>2132924
Mini, this guy's kind of salty but he does have some points. Please try to separate his bitching from his logic, and keep it in find in the future.
>>
>>2132943
This is nowhere near as extreme as you think it is. It's railroading, but it's not unreasonable.

>>2132951
Takeshi can shape chakra, Lee can't. It makes more sense than people are giving it credit for.
>>
>>2132951
We're pretty close to Lee though.
>>
>>2132957
>railroading
>not unreasonable
You're that dumb bitch who thinks her boyfriend beats her because he loves her
>>
>>2132957
You have to be conscious to shape chakra. It's literally a rule of the setting. Naruto only skirts by it because something else conscious is shaping his chakra in certain circumstances.
>>
>>2132957
Dude, please don't defend Mini to the death.

I don't want this to turn into a SOM quest with its fanbase.
>>
>>2132924
What? This was about as flashy of an ending as you can make without having Takeshi just straight up activate his previously unknown sharingan and cast fuck you no jutsu. HE LITERALLY GOT KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS AND GOT BACK UP AGAIN AND FOUGHT TO THE POINT OF SHAPING CHAKRA. This was too flashy for Takeshi. Too special snowflake.
>>
>>2132960
You, however, need to calm your tits.
>>
>>2132966
Blow me nigger
>>
>>2132953
Agreed. I personally liked this conclusion, but it's not as if anger completely belies all logic.
>>
>>2132959
Yeah. But our styles are VASTLY different. We're share our determination, but that's about it.


>>2132965
This. We broke all logic and sense of setting to get handed a win out of nowhere. It's like Sausuke's great snake escape.
>>
>>2132951
Hm, saying it like this I think I better understand what you mean.

But you realize that, if you hadn't made certain choices way earlier, then you wouldn't have been able to win in this fashion? Something else would have happened, though I'm not sure what.

Saying it's devoid of meaning is completely false.

Saying the meaning was shittily communicated might be true.

>>2132965
That doesn't make sense to me.

>win off of hard work
>special snowflake

>>2132962
Shunshin is one of the few jutsu that doesn't require handseals. You were incapable of doing anything else but that. It was purely instinctual.
>>
>>2132924
I don't think the problem was flash. It just kinda felt really cheesy.
I feel like by the end there we should have had the fight in the bag, but then we got pulled into a cut scene.
It's like in an RPG when you fight a boss and beat him, only for the cutscene after to disregard the fight, and show the boss winning.
I know we DID win in the end, but it wasn't US winning if that makes any sense.
The EVENTS in the fight were fine, but the context, and perception around it is what sucks.
>>
>>2132960
Quests need some railroading to provide structure. There's a reason why "going off the rails" is more often than not a bad thing.

>>2132963
I suppose I'm being too lenient. But I'll take Mini over most other fanfic QMs. Especially the other Naruto ones.
>>
>>2132967
Rrriiiiight, Mini, just disregard this guy.

>>2132972
We didn't win off hard work. What we won off of took no work at all, on our part. There was no training, no thinking, no logic. Just a snowflakey degree of determination that let us win while unconscious.
>>
>>2132972
You don't start walking around unconscious because you try hard. We've never even tried to unconsciously shape chakra or trained it.
>>
>>2132977
>I need to be beaten, h-he knows best
No anon, if he was even close to a competent writer he would be able to create a story he wouldn't have to force you down, and he would be able to understand "dude lol ur knocked out but you still win" is a garbage fire
>>2132978
No matter how deep you stick your tongue in his ass, he won't love you
>>
>>2132978
>We didn't win off hard work.
Takeshi won off hard work.
WE the players kinda got robbed, which to be honesty I'm fine with.
>>
>>2132970
You can't win every fight by thinking around it in life.

Sometimes at the end of the day, the only thing to do is take a step forward and put your mettle to the test. That was the whole point of Shozuku's character, to give Takeshi that experience.

>>2132975
I see what you mean.

I did kind of take Takeshi away from you guys to put something that I wanted in here.

>>2132978
>>2132980
False, again. How many times do I have to say it?

If you'd have made different choices in your training, this would not be possible.

You shored up your Taijutsu well enough to be able to take on people like Kichiro for a little bit. You were a total bitch when this thing started. You're not quite at the level where you can use the Gates or anything, but you've been using the weight training and all sorts of other shit to try and improve.

You specifically practiced automatic, reflex based defense too. But to be fair it's been months since that.
>>
>>2132978
We did have to choose to be determined, it didn't come totally out of nowhere. I do see the problems with it.
>>
Yeah mini, there were better ways to write this , like you could have just wrote that he also get knocked out due to blood loss and poison and that would have been more our style. Had we been a taijsust freak then this might have made a bit more sense. We've have made our character to be a chip type character who relies on tricks and status effects to weaken our opponents. I am not above having shoen moments but I would have liked it if it fit Takeshi's character and not Rock Lee's
>>
>>2132978
>We didn't win off hard work. What we won off of took no work at all, on our part. There was no training, no thinking, no logic. Just a snowflakey degree of determination that let us win while unconscious.

Didn't Mini say that it was our hard work and training that let us do this, instead of some other way of winning?
>>
>>2132987
>I see what you mean.
>I did kind of take Takeshi away from you guys to put something that I wanted in here.
Ok good, glad you understand.
Good shit other than that though, by the way.
>>
>>2132985
>if he was even close to a competent writer
If he's not close to competent what does that make all but two or three other fanfic QMs?
>>
>>2133000
Garbage fires.
>>
>>2132972
>Shunshin is one of the few jutsu that doesn't require handseals.


You still need to shape the chakra. Which you need to be conscious for explicitly. If you are not it's not going to work period, because of them mental constraint of it. Naruto and jinchurriki only get past it by beasts taking over when Ko'd.

>>2132987
>Sometimes at the end of the day, the only thing to do is take a step forward and put your mettle to the test.

We did that and failed and Lost, explicitly.

>That was the whole point of Shozuku's character, to give Takeshi that experience.

See, the only lesson I am getting out of this, is why work hard? Victory will be handed to you by the QM anyways. By your own rules and by setting logic we lost, and lost handily. Then oh look total bs! and we win. we were making conscious rational moves to attack weak spots and dodge attacks while ko'd our own reaction times should have shot to non-existent then did something explicitly impossible while KO'd.
>>
>>2132990
>we've made our character
>our character

sorry, but we share him. You cannot win every fight through simple tricks. I have said this

since the start of the quest

That tricks and being smart is good and all, but eventually, there will be an opponent who can see past your tricks and predict them. Because that's all they are, is tricks. You needed some substance, a strong core, you know?

>>2132999
Glad you have enjoyed!
>>
>>2132972
The thing is, there was no effort on our part at making Takeshi a hard worker. You gave us to choose 1. Work our ass to be the best or 2. Dont and what did you expected? Things like blinding our enemy with our blood, succesfully triggering a trap, remembering some obscure jutsu to give us an edge, those are the choices really hold close to our hearts. The way you ended things, you kinda just took away that from us. Precisely because this isn't a videogame we should be more involved in the story.
>>
>>2132987
>>2132992
This isn't the kind of win we trained for. We're not a brute force sort of person. We're a Puzzle Solver.

We should have solved the puzzle that was 'Defeating Shozuku with the resources at hand.' And we did.

Then we lose, and get what could have just as well been a pre-written post about how we 'Get back up and keep fighting because shonen snowflake bullshit.' And then we win.

We didn't work for this. We might have gotten it from our choices, but this was never in our bag of tricks. We never had 'Get up and keep fighting even though you're unconscious' in our arsenal. I find it unsatisfying as a result.

Had we actually trained such an ability into ourselves, I'd be much less salty about it. But instead, it got handed to us for the sake of dramatic effect. We won because of something we never directly put work into.
>>
>>2133004
Fair enough.
>>
>>2133009
>We're not a brute force sort of person
We do solve a lot through brute force, like the end of the Chunin Exam prelims.

>>2133006
>You still need to shape the chakra
Isn't it just focusing it in the legs?
>>
>>2133009
We did train this though, it was just pre hiatus.
>>
>>2133014
The end was using the Underdog seal, something we hid throughout the tournament specifically for that fight. It was another trick we'd picked up. One of many.

It was satisfying to use, as a result.
>>
>>2133008
Well no, we had to work hard for Boil release to truly fight this guy and in the past our hard work has paid off in other ways. Owl summons anyone, I doubt naruto would have gave us that if we hadn't trained our ass off and won the tournament.
>>
>>2133014
>Isn't it just focusing it in the legs?
Still shaping mental and physical chakra into a pattern to use.
>>
>>2133015
I don't remember anything about training to fight while unconscious.
>>
>>2133014
It's an actual explicitly stated thing. Using chakra just isn't something you do while unconscious.
>>
>>2133008
>>2133009
You guys did make the choices, you just didn't realize at the time that you were doing it. You probably did like

a dozen

training sessions on purely taijutsu with your brother and Kichiro, and never got a tangible stat benefit from it except for one or twice. This is the payoff for all of those.

It's not something you can RELY on, to a degree, yeah, you got fuckin' lucky. But sometimes that's just how things shake down.

>>2133006
On the chakra shaping, I decided that Shunshin, if any technique, would be the one possible thing that could be done unconscious, because of how simple it is.

If that's a discrepancy in canon then I'm going against canon, as I often do.

>>2133025
That's not how fighting while unconscious works, anon. Nobody trains to do it. It happens because you train.
>>
hell my problem isn't even the unconsciousness part itself but the fact that it happened at all. It could have easily been the point where Underdog activated and we regained consciousness.
>>
>>2133026
.... by that logic we shouldn't have the Boil release.
>>
>>2133021
I'm pretty sure that can be done unconsciously, but I might be thinking of shunpo or soru.
>>
>>2133020
So what? We had no involvement in that training, we just copypasted >Investigate the Boil release. and thats it, we didn't figured it out, we setted Takeshi on autopilot and he made all that by himself.
>>
>>2133027
Winning by luck after all that effort to get a solid victory makes me feel robbed.

If it's going to be like that all the time, where we have to rely on "luck" (read: QM Fiat) to win our fights using things that have never shown up before in fighting or training, then I see little reason to put all that effort into being the well-rounded individual Takeshi is now. Might as well spam Taijutsu like Lee, in that case.
>>
>>2133034
No I mean we literally shouldn't have the ability to do it, mix releases have to be genetic I believe so you can''t just learn them.

Random topic but I don;t think Takeshi has to ever worry about being forgotten ever again, he's just killed the leader of a immortal terrorist group.
>>
I'm glad Mini isn't at least above reproach, even if everybody is buttmad at the QM this is still the best playerbase because we can get mad at the QM.

Clan and Future could too, but those are/were full of namefags and weapons-grade autism.
>>
>>2133038
>things that have never shown up before in fighting or training

false. You can repeat it as much as you want, but if you go back and read, it's there.

Also, you only managed to *overcome* him because of luck, but you absolutely *beat* him on your own. I'm sorry you feel like all of that was invalidated.

>>2133034
I mean, isn't that everything? You vote on it and Takeshi does it. What more do you want?

>>2133054
I'll absolutely take this into consideration in the future. Even if I disagree on whether or not it was good in a structural sense, I can see why people feel robbed.

I'll do my best to bring the best of both worlds next time.
>>
So, what to do with the nuclear death ball of dragonflies?

Time for a badass necklace! (I jest)
>>
>>2133051
Also Immortal terrorist group is not something I thought I would have ever type in my life.
>>
>>2133027
Regardless, you at least admitted you made a mistake taking control of the situation for your own personal enjoyment.

I'm willing to leave it at that.

>>2133058
Again, I disagree, but frankly the hollow victory and subsequent argument have drained me. I'll read this quest when it pops back up, but I'm done for now.
>>
Now we have the most important decision coming up soon, we have to decide who is gonna train us. Edgy special eyes or nuclear demon container.
>>
>>2133058
I suppose it's enough that you at least understand it felt like a cutscene. Sure it was one of many possible cutscenes but it was still a cutscene scripted to lead to point B where we get to make the moral decision of Blue Red or Green
>>
>>2133058
>What more do you want?
Dice are a way to quell the cries of QM fiat. But then you're relying on RNG which in most cases is even worse.

I feel you.

All quests are like that really. But, it's the quality of the writing that's able to pull you out and forget about it.

Kind of like watching a show where the name of it is the main character, so you know he's going to win at the end. But the good parts make you forget about that anyway.

Personally I think my multiple hiatus' are what damaged this ending most of all, due to not cleanly tying everything together at the end like I'd hoped. I mean, that's still what I did, but I suppose it wasn't done very effectively.

Quests are a way for me to become a better writer while doing something I enjoy, so, I hope everyone can walk away from this as satisfied as I am despite the kurfuffle.
>>
>>2133058
I am glad you understand Mini. The cutscene was an explicit you lose, and then some how we didn't. The two other times we pulled through there was a locus and a reason we did, not just bullshit luck yo the point of straining the suspension of disbelief.

It's fine if we honestly lost to Shozoku ( although HOW? ) but us suddenly getting back off and pulling billshit out of nowhere to the point of breaking his spirit? Just doesn't work. Scripted events in general are hard like that and it can easily rob your audience of the ability to care or put in more than the minimum token effort. After all if the entire thing is a set piece why bother trying to improve?


That said I do like your quest mini. It's great.
>>
>>2133071
What can we expect for next thread exactly?
>>
>>2133081
So, this is the end? There will be epilogues, right? Otherwise, ending the quest off with the MC still as a kid leaves way too much open to speculation. This feels more like the end of season 1 than the end of the series itself.
>>
>>2133085
Takeshi bangs Inojin.
>>
>>2133087
When mini says end he means of part one. There is gonna be a part two where Takeshi and the gang are older.
>>
>>2133083
Hey now, I'd hope people would give Shozuku the credit he deserves. His fighting style may have been the antithesis of yours, with many clear flaws, but he muscled his way through it.

Also I feel people don't really agree with Takeshi suddenly feeling the stamina drain, but, if you go back and look, over the course of this mission, you guys have literally never casted as many jutsu as this. You really pushed the limit. It kept you safe, so you didn't take many hits, but you had to sap your stamina to do so.

>>2133085
Victory lap. The mission end, talking with people, recovery, and the choice of who you'll be training with over the time skip.

Well there's anonkun ( fiction live now), space battles and sufficient velocity.

Boo, most of the anime cast is fun. Like Sumire and Iwabe and the explosion girl.

If you go to any of those give up those digits right now.

Getting knocked unconscious is less a matter of repeated injuries and more hitting with a clean angle.

Every time he hit you with a headbutt or punch, it was only after you were vulnerable.

Usually, when you hit him with similar blows, it was something he was intentionally taking.

Where your style is to chip away with many small blows, Shozuku's style is to weather those blows, and put all of his power into a single attack.

He's used to fighting while this close to the edge, as one anon commented, but you don't get in very many bloody brawls. You'll be stronger because of this experience in the future.

A site specifically focused on touhou CYOA created as an outgrowth of /jp/.

There are some good quests on those site like there are on this one, you've got to slog through mountains of shit to find them also like 4chan.

Shozuku was always stronger than us. He was easily at the level of a tokubetsu jonin while we where a crappy fresh chunin. He worked almost as hard as we did, once he began obsessing about Takashi, and with the singular goal of killing us. This kind of ending was the best we could hope for, even if it could have been presented better.

I mean, despite kind of burning through all of your stamina, you guys did more or less dominate him. He just has the tenacity to turn things around if he got the chance.

Truth be told, you could have ended this fight with stumps for hands, so good job in that respect.

I was intending for it to feel like you were fighting another MC

From the perspective of a lurker I enjoyed most of the thread a great deal. Towards the end the jump from super fast to tired to unconscious felt forced and unnatural. The whole unconscious bit seemed more like a way to add tension to a fight that was being one rather than a gimmick to win a losing battle. Way too many anons got salty over nothing more than a sub par ending to a good thread.

This one kinda irks me. They're not just tricks. They are our strong core. Even if you see through one we have 5 more. Even if someone can see it coming they can't stop it because we've work then down with status effects. WE HAVE A VERY STRONG CORE IT'S JUST NOT TAIJUTSU.

Also instead of us fighting unconscious we could've been knocked down, he thinks he won, we get up from underdog seal and do the same shit but conscious.

That said I did like the rest of the fight. Definitely felt like fighting another PC.

Acting humble is overrated
>>
>>2133390
True, but if you may recall I've mentioned multiple times that you won't be able to survive on tricks alone.

Your tricks work because they're things that people don't expect, but when you start fighting people who've seen every trick in the book, you'll need something to fall back on. Whatever that is.
>>
>>2133111
Really the only reason it was Takeshi who took down the leader is because he was obsessed with proving himself right by fighting Takeshi. Plenty of people from his class could have taken him rather easily.
>>
>>2135712
I'd imagine we'd have an ally back is up so we can hit them with tricks anyway.

Otherwise why would we bother learning anything new if it'll all come down to fist fights?
>>
>>2136073
If we actually ever end up fighting someone that has seen everything our only chance will always be retreating or directing our allies. Direct confrontation is simply not an option against the actual threats for Takeshi.
>>
>>2135712
You say that like misdirection is not the ninja way. Even if they know all our tricks odds are we can feint and bait them. Ninja like Kakashi and Gai who are legends amongst even jonin are rare, maybe 2-3 per village per generation.

Furthermore if every jutsu is a useless trik once someone figures out how they work why are we bothering learning them? Just be like gai and taijutsu 24/7.

>>2136124
Exactly. It's like telling the wizard to multiclass into fighter for when he runs out of spells.

does boil release alow us to make our own poisons?
