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 your way home after defeating your look-a-like rival, Shozuku.
>>2811197oh neat. you're alive
>>2811197It's the return of ninja Mr. Clean
>>2811197Oh shit, welcome back man!
>>2811197You sit down.With a big sigh, you come to realize just how exhausted you are. With a final sprint, you and your friends have ended everything. Shozuku is dead, and with his death, the cultists will fall apart. With no one to lead them and give them power, it's finally over. So many lives have been disrupted since they came here. Even though Shozuku was an awesome shinobi, he was also really troublesome. The current civil war in the Mist is still going to be a problem for years to come. The angry boy disrupted peace in the world. You fall flat on your back, laying near his dead body. "What a messed up guy. Even still, he was kind of a victim too."As you lie dazed, you don't realize it at first when Mari is standing over you. She frowns. "You're not hurt, are you?"You smile. "Well, yeah. But nothing serious, I don't think. Not as bad as him. Could you help me up?" She holds out her hand, and you're pulled to your feet. The sounds of fighting can still be heard in the distance, although not as ferocious. You look around, slightly hunched over from your exhaustion. Going full throttle like that really did a number on your body. "We gotta find the orb." you suggest. "It's holding the tailed beast."Mari's eyes bulge, and she sees it through the mud right away with her Byakugan. "Got it. So, was he as ferocious as ever?" She remarks as she points to Shozuku.>A. He was totally unhinged. If he wasn't so crazy he probably would have beaten me. >B. It was a really tough fight. I'm not sure how I made it out, at points. I owe it all to my training.>C. He left himself open a lot. Maybe it was always like that, and we were just too scared to notice. But he fought like he wanted to die. >D. Write-in
Thanks for the welcomes everyone. I'll be regular now again, and hopefully even more soon. Moving into a new place.

Oh yeah, I should probably explain my rules again since it's been so long. Voting lasts for 15 minutes from the moment the first vote is made. Sometimes this can be adjusted depending on traffic.
>>2811242>>B. It was a really tough fight. I'm not sure how I made it out, at points. I owe it all to my training.Gotta give props to working hard>>2811249Good to hear Mini
>>2811249>B. It was a really tough fight. I'm not sure how I made it out, at points. I owe it all to my training.
>>2811197All of my dreams have come true!
>>2811242>B. It was a really tough fight. I'm not sure how I made it out, at points. I owe it all to my trainingMini! I was just talking about this quest. Great to have you back!
>>2811242>>C. He left himself open a lot. Maybe it was always like that, and we were just too scared to notice. But he fought like he wanted to die.
>>2811257>>2811266>>2811275>>2811286"It was a really tough fight. I'm not sure how I made it out, at points. I owe it all to my training."Mari scoffs. "So, business as usual for you then?"She bends down and grabs the orb, cradling it. "Let's get out of here. It's time for us to go back to camp and let everyone else take over. They'll push the remnants of their forces outside of the city.""Right." you say, rubbing your face. "Is everyone we came with okay?"Your friend nods, and steps next to you. "Yeah. They had to recover all the others, and I said I'd push ahead and retrieve you. Still hard to believe you actually beat him." "Yeah." you mutter. "I think I'm still in shock from it all. I swear, so many times I was on the edge of losing, and I just thought 'I can't back down from him'. He kept raising the bar higher, and I kept responding. I feel like I understand a bit more about what it really means to win." Mari scratches her face. "What it means to win, huh? Well, in our line of business that seems simple. The winners live and the losers, die, right?" The two of you stand over Shozuku's corpse. Though you're unsure, it looks as if the faintest hint of a smile is on the corners of his mouth. But maybe he just tensed up as he was about to die. It's difficult to tell. "I just don't know, Mari. Let's head out before I fall asleep." The two of you exit, and sneak back to the edge of the city where you return to the camp. The people you came with, and others, are spread around the various tents resting. You have a chance to talk to them before going to sleep, if you like.>A. Find Kichiro>B. Find Ai>C. Find Hanto >D. Look for someone else
>>2811331>D. Find Jesusfor real though >C. Find Hanto
>>2811331>>B. Find Ai
>>2811331>B. Find Ai
>>2811331>B. Find AiNo lie, I don't remember who Hanto is supposed to be. It has been a while to be fair
>>2811368He's your squad leader/teacher. He's not around all that much to be fair
>>2811331>B. Find Aiiirc, Shozuku was Ai's brother, so I suppose it's only right that we talk to her.
>>2811331If I'm remembering correctly kichiro is the oni guy, ai is best girl battle autist, and hanto is our squad leader right?
>>2811377Yup, they're all your team. Squad 13
>>2811197Glad to see you’re back, Mini.
I hope Wargle stops being dead soon
>>2811382Whelp looks like we're going to Ai. We kinda left everyone in a bad way to get to Shozuku but who was the last person with us? It's been awhile.
>>2811373Oh yeah, no I remember the character it was just the name, I'm terrible with names.
Jeez, let's hope time didn't make us too rusty. Good to have you back Mini
>>2811394Mari was I think.>>2811401Should be a wind down thread hopefully.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ug070QK674You and Mari separate once you reach the camp, and you start to look for Ai. You feel that it's only right considering what just happened. It doesn't take long for someone to direct you to the tent that she's resting in, and you enter the quiet, dark room. The sunlight hitting the side of the tent illuminates it somewhat, and Ai sits with a book in her hands. She looks up, and smiles lightly. "Takeshi.. you made it."With a thumbs up, you sit down on the other side. "Yeah, just barely. Every time I ever fought that guy it was a hairy situation, but this time he went all out."She nods. "Was it scary?""It was." you say, looking down. Thankfully I ran into the Boil Release technique that I did. He was stronger, tougher, maybe a better fighter. Had more chakra, way more advanced techniques, and all those acid jutsu. But I was able to neutralize it with my technique and speed. At times, I was amazed how he was able to push through the pain. He had this image of being immortal and unbreakable, and right to the very end. I honestly thought he might jump up and attack me from the ground, even as I had him pinned."She smiles, not looking at you. "Sounds just like him." You grin as well. "He jumped right in the way of every attack I made. Took it all again and again. I wonder what he was thinking of that let him do that." Ai's smile widens, and she starts to tear up. Her mind cuts back to the young Shozuku standing in front of her, his arms spread. "You leave my little sister alone! It's not right!" He's back handed, and knocked to the ground. But the boy pushes himself right back up and spits the blood to the floor. Ai's mother shouts. "Isn't it enough, Shozuku!? Just stop it!" The father holds his hand up and curls it into a fist, and their mother shrieks as he brings it down and cracks it across Shozuku's mouth. His head spins around and he lands on the ground in front of Ai, looking at her terrified face for a moment before turning back. He has a cut across the bridge of his nose bleeding profusely. The little boy holds his arms out in defiance, protecting her. His eyes burn. "I hate you. I hate you. I hate you!!!"
>>2811461She laughs, snapping back to reality. "He never really changed. He was just, striking out at the world for what it was."She stands up, sobbing. "He was thinking 'It doesn't matter what happens to me. I just want to hurt this world that has hurt me.'"Hanto knocks on the top of the tent, and the both of you look up. He leans in. "Hiya, kids." You can see Kichiro's shadow outside of the tent, standing in the light. You see his clenched fists trembling, and he speaks. "But why'd he have to be so damn evil?" Hanto looks at the ground, and sighs. "I think we can all understand the feelings of a mad dog." Ai wipes her eyes. "He just didn't have the chance to have friends like us. He fought on his own, and lost." You frown. >A. He wanted vengeance where there was none to be had. The things that happened to him were no one's fault. Just an unfortunate victim of the world we live in.>B. With better guidance he might have been a great shinobi. But there's no doubt that the tragedies he committed could never be forgiven.>C. We have to try to keep making the world a better place so that people like him don't get made anymore!>D. Write-in
>>2811466>C. We have to try to keep making the world a better place so that people like him don't get made anymore!
>>2811466>A. He wanted vengeance where there was none to be had. The things that happened to him were no one's fault. Just an unfortunate victim of the world we live in.
>>2811466>B. With better guidance he might have been a great shinobi. But there's no doubt that the tragedies he committed could never be forgiven.>D. Did you get the one casting Edo Tensei?
>>2811466>>A. He wanted vengeance where there was none to be had. The things that happened to him were no one's fault. Just an unfortunate victim of the world we live in.
>>2811472>>2811478>>2811508"He wanted vengeance where there was none to be had. The things that happened to him were no one's fault. Just an unfortunate victim of the world we live in."Ai wipes her face again, and stands. "He could have focused on changing the world for the better, but he just wanted to drag it down with him. Come on guys, let's go home!"She rushes out of the tent door, and you almost fall over as you rush to get up. "H-Hey! Wait a second, I need to rest for a little bit!"Hanto grabs you by the arm and yanks you out, starting to heal you with his other hand. "You should be fine for a hike, with this. Trust me, you'll want to sleep in your own bed instead of a cot after a fight like this."You nod slowly, before an idea pops into your head. "Oh, Ai! Did you defeat Tomoki?? The Edo Tensei user!"Ai turns back, and gives you a thumbs up. "Of course. I knew you'd succeed in your battle, so I defeated my foe as well."You grin, as she marches off. She's really changed from the super serious girl that you'd first met. Instead of icy and determined, at times she seems more gutsy and passionate. Kichiro slaps you on the back and runs ahead, as well. "I gotta get back and see how my sis is doing! Don't take too long, Takeshi. Great work today, team!" The delinquent, antisocial boy that you once knew is gone as well. Now he's your relaxed, reliable ally. Hanto takes a drink from his flask, and you chuckle. He hasn't changed all that much though. Neither have you, when you really think about it. Everyone starts the trip back home, and you camp out for a night before getting back to the gates. (So much for Hanto's bed idea.) Once you're back home, you say goodbye to your friends and head home for the best sleep of your life. Once you wake, you find your brother and tell him all about your adventures. By the end of your tale, he looks stunned. Your brother tells you that you've grown a lot since you became a shinobi. As you're leaving your house the next morning, you find a note from the Hokage on your doorstep. "Hope you slept well. Meet me at the village gates ASAP."Not wasting any time, you get there right away. However, aside from the guards, no one seems to be present. You take a seat and shut your eyes for a little while, opting to simply relax and wait for the Hokage to arrive. After a few minutes, something pokes you between the eyes.
You open them, and find Sarada standing over you, her finger on your forehead."What are you doing here?" she demands."Waiting for the Hokage." you explain.She takes her finger back, and puts it on her chin. "Curious. What's this supposed to be about, I wonder.." "I'm not even sure myself." Says Sasuke. You blink. Suddenly, a man had silently appeared next to you and Sarada. You're not sure how he managed to sneak up on you so perfectly and silently. Looking up, his face seems somewhat familiar. Gears slowly turn in your head. >A. "You're that emo kid in the history books!" >B. "You're the guy with the eyes!" >C. "You're Sasuke Uchiha!" >D. "What the fuck">E. write-in
>>2811558>E. So since you're here I assume the Hokage is going to be taking top young talents and training them up because of the rampant rise of instability in the world? Hence why Sarada is here too?
>>2811558>>E. "You're Sarada's Dad!"
>>2811558>A. "You're that emo kid in the history books!"
>>2811556>>2811558Holy shit it's Sasuke!HOLY SHIT MINI'S BACK! >C. "You're Sasuke Uchiha!" >D. "What the fuck"
>>2811558>C. "You're Sasuke Uchiha!" >D. "What the fuck"
>>2811558>Just stand there pointing in slack jawed shock.Dudes probably damn near mythical at this point.
>>2811558>E. You're Sarada's dadI find this funnier
>>2811558>>2811568change to >E. You're Sarada's dad

>>2811565>>2811576>>2811578>>2811590>>2811594>>2811595"You're Sarada's dad!"You point, eyes wide open suddenly. Now you're certainly awake, if you weren't before.Sasuke blankly looks at you. "Yes." You stutter. "I, uh- what I meant was that, you-, you're the guy who- and-" Sasuke blankly looks at you. "Yes." Sarada is looking up at him in a clear sense of wonder. Makes sense, seeing that as far as you know he's hardly ever home. She gulps. "Hi, dad." He smiles faintly. "Hi, Sarada. I hope your mom hasn't been driving you crazy." She chuckles, half-heartedly. "Hehehe, of course not. W-what are you doing here?" He scratches his chin. "Well, I'm waiting on that damned Naruto to figure that part out. He called me back here from my explorations for something. Said that it was urgent and required immediate attention."You stand up, crossing your arms and nodding. "Immediate attention, huh? We should expect to see Naruto in three to five business days, then!" Standing on the wall above you is the Hokage himself. "Hey! I resent that!" You point up. "I bet that's just a clone!" Naruto grips his fist, and yells. "Hey, I'm here, aren't I!?" Sasuke sighs. "Get down from there already, you moron." Naruto barks from him on the side of the village wall. "I'll stand here as long as I want, I'm the Hokage! No one tells me to do anything, except Shizune when I need to know something!" He crosses his arms. The three of you stand there and look at him for a short while. Sarada puts a hand on her hip and opens her mouth. "Are you-" "No, I'm not done." says Naruto. She frowns. After a few more seconds, he walks down. "Okay, I'm done." "Why are we here!?" she throws her hands up, yelling. Naruto grins. "Well, I was thinking that your dad would want to see a couple things. I figured the best way to show him how good both you and Takeshi are, is for you to spar!" Sasuke frowns. "You dragged me all the way out here for this?" Naruto elbows him. "Just be patient." You blink. >A. Okay>B. This seems weird>C. I'm tired! >D. Write-in
>>2811633>OkayWe're the reasonable sort
>>2811633>D. You realize what a horrible matchup this is, right? My techniques are all about subtlety and misdirection, and Sarada's eyes will let her cheat her way through it all pretty easily.
>>2811633>B. This seems weirdBut say it under our breath, or to Sarada.
>>2811633>>B. This seems weird
>>2811633>B. This seems weird>A. Okay>C. I'm tired!"This seems weird, but okay. Warning you now, though, I'm pretty tired."
>>2811633>>B. This seems weirdand>D. You realize what a horrible matchup this is, right? My techniques are all about subtlety and misdirection, and Sarada's eyes will let her cheat her way through it all pretty easily. I'll still give a shot though, just giving everyone a warning it's going to likely be a short match.
>>2811633>B. This seems weird>A. Okay
>>2811633>B. This seems weird>A. Okay>D. Wait no
>>2811642>>2811645>>2811647>>2811649>>2811650>>2811651>>2811658>>2811665"This seems weird. Okay."Sarada grumbles. "You're weird. This is weird, why are you agreeing to it if it's weird!? You weirdo!" Naruto frowns. "Come on, Sarada! Just trust me on this one. Besides, don't you wanna show your dad how good you are now?"She adjusts her glasses. "Well, yeah. I guess I'll try it then."Sasuke's eyes squint. "Naruto, are you sure this is okay? I'm not sure who this boy is, but can he really stand up to the Sharingan at his level?"Naruto chuckles, and wipes his nose. "That's actually part of what I wanted to show you. Takeshi here became a Chunin before your daughter did."She holds up a finger. "That's only because he got lucky and Boruto beat me in the tourney!" Sasuke takes a glance at you. "Really?"You nod.>A. I'm going to be the Hokage one day.>B. Really, it's mostly just luck and good timing. >C. I'm more of a strategy type. It's my team mates who do the heavy lifting. >D. Write-in
>>2811688>D. Write-inmostly tricks and misdirection, I'll have to think up something different for this fight, I doubt that will work.
>>2811688>C. I'm more of a strategy type. It's my team mates who do the heavy lifting.
>>2811688>>A. I'm going to be the Hokage one day.
>>2811688>I'm going to be the Hokage one day.Our dream is to be the greatest ninja, and that usually equates to being kage.Be what naruto was supposed to be about before all that late series bloodline ninja jesus bullshit.
>>2811688>D. It's True. Your Daughter is a horrible match up for me. I did beat Boruto in the finals though.
>>2811688>B. Really, it's mostly just luck and good timing.
>>2811695>>2811699>>2811702>>2811703You smile. "I mostly get by on tricks and misdirection. I'm going to be the Hokage one day though, so don't underestimate it." Sarada clenches her fists. "Hey! That's my line! I'm the one who's going to be the next Hokage!" Naruto chuckles. "Well, let's see just where the two of you are at then! If I'm mistaken, you've never actually fought each other in full. But you're well aware of the other's fighting styles. That's another reason I was wanting to see this. Let's head out to the training field, guys. Sasuke walks with Sarada, who seems elated to see her father. They chat while you walk with Naruto."So, is he just as good as you, Lord Hokage!" Naruto frowns, and looks away. "I'm slightly better, of course, being the Hokage and all."You wink. "Only slightly, eh?"Naruto grabs the top of your head, and picks you off your feet. "What'd you say!?" "Nothing, nothing!"Within a short while you all arrive. Naruto and Sasuke sit next to the war memorial of old. Sarada stands across from you, in the same spot that Mari once stood when you fought her for the first time. You begin by loosening up, punching the air and bobbing up and down in place. Sarada remains still, but you want to relax and try to establish a rhythm. Naruto grins. "Any questions before we start?"(This will be the end of the thread. Last chance to ask Naruto, Sasuke, or Sarada any questions for now. Next thread will start the spar.)>A. Yeah>B. Nah
>>2811764>B. NahWhen ya gonna run again minmin?
>>2811764>B. Nahso I'm thinking we use the iron fist thing we have to defend in this fight. Sarada will be coming in hitting like a truck and if we can stop one of her punches in it's tracks it might throw her off entirely and let us at least get a hit in. I'm not even sure she knows we have that technique
>>2811770Most likely Monday, but keep an eye out on twitter as I may run before if work changes.
>>2811764Are you still putting this on hold to run the boxing quest?
>>2811764>>B. Nah>>2811778not good enough to do that yet.E need to DODGE like mad.
>>2811764>B. Nah>>2811780You might be my favorite QM desu, I would love to see you end a quest. Well, "end".
>>2811780Well at least I have off that day
IT'S ALIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!>>2811377Nigga MARI is best girl and I will fight you irl over this.>>2811780Ippo Quest still happening during the timeskip?
>>2811785Not until this part is completely finished. So a few more threads of Boruto.>>2811795Thank you very much anon. Also big thanks to everyone else who was welcoming me back.>>2811811Correct, that is the plan.
>>2811811Ha, nahSarada is best girl, fite me
>>2811813>Correct, that is the plan.Hopefully you don't vanish for another 8 months straight again
>>2811821I shouldn't. Maybe for a week or so when I do the actual moving, but after that I should be able to run several times a week
>>2811820Nope, Salad worst girl.She's a dirty fucking Uchiha and therefore automatically subhuman shit.
>>2811851she's half Sakura too
>>2811853Sakura deserved better
>>2811853See?!She's shit fucking SQUARED!Meanwhile, Mari is the offspring of 10/10 and Based Neji! She is literally perfection in Ninja form!
>>2811851Better than a damn moon ninja offshoot, fucking moon ninjas. And banages are not an accessory.
>>2811861Neji is literally the only one dead post-Shippuden
>>2811945Neji ended up being right.Your destiny is determined from the start, and if you're not born special, you're fucked.
>>2811944Hey, the Hyuuga may be a bit shady, but they never schemed to betray the village like the FILTHY FUCKING UCHIHAS did.The Hyuuga are actually loyal to Konoha.REMOVE UCHIHA!>>2811945Nigga Neji was RIGHT.By the end of Naruto, if you weren't born with some crazy special bullshit, you weren't shit.
>>2811951Yeah but that sucks, that's exactly why I want Takeshi to be hokage and be what naruto was supposed to be. Besides, whrn you think about it a lot of the most famous ninjas didn't come from special bloodlines. Jiraya and Orichimaru are two, there was Hanzo whose big thing was utilizing the poisonous organ he took out of a deadly lizard and put into himself. Guy and Dai, Guy specifically was actually quite skilled at ninjutsu and genjutsu, he just preffered his taijutsu. People look at Naruto's OP ninja god bloodline and forget that he inherited it from his mom. His dad, Minato, was considered the strongest ninja of his time but wasn't actually from any notable bloodlines and his a ilities were self made. Bloodlines aren't the be all end all and Neji admits to being wrong, they just focused on that stuff way too hard late shippuden and ruined the whole point of what the manga was originally about which sucks.
>>2811963The Uchiha were just the scapegoat for Hyuga's eugenic master plan. Now they have the united bloodline, and a relative as hokage, it was all a plot to take over Konoha, wake up sheeple!
>>2811945to bring Naruto and Hinata closer together to help Hiashi's eugenics plan happen
>>2812044Dude, EVERY clan does ninja eugenics.It's just that Hiashi is a Crusader Kings 2 player, and therefore takes it to Bene Gesserit levels.The Uchiha on the other hand are responsible for literally every single bad thing that happens during the events of the manga.Pedosnek? Wanted the Sharingan.Sausage? A fucking Uchiha.Obito? A fucking Uchiha.Nagato? Manipulated BY a fucking Uchiha.Madara? The OG filthy fucking Uchiha.If the First had just listened to his smarter brother and offed Madara, NONE of that shit would have happened.
Sarada is cute.
>>2812320I'd also like to say i've been looking forward to this battle. For a LONG time.I'm so happy this quest is backEnd of season Optional Boss, HYPE!
>>2812320Not worst girl but close.
>>2811197I am so very happy to see this back. You *really* need to keep us posted on social media, but I'll just settle for you being back.Really, welcome back Mini.
>>2811197Is this a fucking dream? Minmin is back?
Holy shit, I just checked your twitter account on a whim and found out this happened. Fuck yes!
>>2812312I'll give you Obito, Nagato and MadaraBut Pedosnek and Sausage could have been completely avoided if the Third Hokage wasn't such a shit.Fact is, he allowed Pedosnek to keep doing what he was doing, when Snek had already fallen off the deep end. He allowed Danzo to create his Foundation.And, by keeping the Uchiha clan's intentions secret and branding Itachi just a homicidal traitor rather than the hero who fought his blood's need to be a filthy mongrel to butchered the Uchiha before they could start a coup, he ended up being the catalyst for all the shit involving Sauce-Qué.Can we all appreciate the fact every Hokage after the second was fucking terrible?
>>2813328>after the secondThe Second was awful too. Besides Hashirama, Kakashi, and so far Naruto, they were all bad. Except maybe Minato, because he wasn't Hokage long enough to fuck up.
>>2813328Oh, also forgot: the Third Hokage let Danzo create his Foundation, which did nothing productive in the entire time it was active and just made everything worse, like "create" and subsequently end up turning Kabuto away from the village.And we all know what Kabuto went on to do.Resurrect fucking Madara Uchiha when he had become the best kind of Uchiha, AKA, a dead one.
>>2813367>the best kind of Uchiha, AKA, a dead oneOh, you're a Tobiramafag. Of course. At least you're not a Danzo fag like I bet this guy >>2812083 is.
>>2813360>Besides Hashirama>The guy who was so powerful he's a walking, talking tool for Kishimoto to pull shit out of his ass because "Hashirama cells">The guy who rounded up all the tailed beasts, was in a position to bring peace to the Ninja world but decided instead to distribute them among the villages so they could become a stronger force and fueling ninja wars to come>A good Hokage.Minato and Kakashi just weren't hokage long enough, and it isn't fair to put Nardo in the same running as the others, his running is during the recent era of peace.Point is, out of the four left it goes Tobirama > Hashirama > Tsunade > Third Hokage by virtue that Tobirama didn't fuck anything up too bad down the line while he was Hokage.>>2813381>Not memeing it up with the best mad lad in the whole series.It's kinda true though, Uchiha did nothing right.
>>2813451Kakashi was Hokage for over a decade how is that not long enough?
>>2813451>Tobirama didn't fuck anything up too badHe's the reason for everything Hiruzen fucked up except for Orochimaru. It goes Hashirama > Tsunade > Hiruzen = Tobirama.>>2813464Probably "because it was an era of peace" the same as Naruto. This is your brain on Second Hokage.
>>2813464Like the guy running this quest, I don't into Boruto stuff very much, it was a brainfart.But I'd say >>2813471 >"because it was an era of peace"Don't know why you think that isn't fair. During a time were the five great villages are all friends and not out to fuck each other up in more and more cutthroat ways, being ninja president is so much easier to do.If I'd rate ALL the Hokage by the metric I set of how little they fucked up on the job it would go Minato > Kakashi = Nardo > Tobirama > Hashirama > Tsunade > Hiruzen>>2813471>He's the reason for everything Hiruzen fucked up except for OrochimaruExplain.How did the second Hokage become the reason for everything Hiruzen fucked up besides Orochimaru exactly?
>>2813540>How did the second Hokage become the reason for everything Hiruzen fucked up besides Orochimaru exactly?Danzo's philosophy comes from Tobirama; he never changed his opinion on the Uchiha, despite knowing Uchiha who were good people with the Will of Fire who obtained their sharingan without the curse; this lead to the whole ghetto situation which isolated them from the village and made rebellion such an appealing idea; he made the Uchiha the police force, which lead to the villagers resenting them; and he created the Edo Tensei and ANBU; I almost forgot the Chunin Exams, in which children kill one another. That thing that Hashirama wanted to prevent above all else.
Is their anyway we can actually beat sarada right now?Maybe pocket sand no justu into comboing her with boil+ taijustu?
>>2813565>Danzo's philosophy comes from TobiramaDanzo's an whole other level, just because he shared the same philosophy on uchiha doesn't mean shit, Danzo is the biggest disingenuous retard in the series "Protect the village by causing its destruction" kinds of retarded. That's all him, not Tobirama.>he never changed his opinion on the Uchiha, despite knowing Uchiha who were good people with the Will of Fire who obtained their sharingan without the curse.Why would he? Just because a few can do it doesn't mean the majority will.>ghetto situation which isolated them from the village and made rebellion such an appealing ideaIsn't every clan basically kept in their own spots in the village? Like the Nara have their own place, complete with their own forest, the Hyuuga have their own compound, ect.How come only the Uchiha being isolated make them desire rebellion?>he made the Uchiha the police force, which lead to the villagers resenting themMore like wanting to avoid Military police. Why would you not want to avoid Military police even if you had nothing to hide? Risk some trumped up charges or accusations of treason over spicy jokes. What really brought resentment was the nine tails attack and the fact people knew they could control the tailed beast, though anime-only Danzo was made to order them to not engage so the distrust spread more. I'll give you that one to some extent, because even if you consider the anime making it so Danzo had an hand in the Uchiha's absence, this shit only really happened because an Uchiha caused the fox to attack using the sharingan so people were right, and it ended the way it did.Proving the only ones truly keeping Uchiha down were the Uchiha themselves with their curse shit.>he created the Edo Tensei and ANBUAnd? He might have created the Edo Tensei but that by itself isn't really much, the guy created pretty much all the forbidden jutsu including Shadow Clones, plus his version of it was piss poor, were it not for Hiruzen fucking up Orochimaru would never have lead to its perfecting and making it viable as a tool for war, even then Snek's version was so shit Hiruzen could take the first and second hokage on at teh same time, this is like admonishing the Wright Brothers for making the first planes because someone went and made bombers decades later, and as for ANBU, what's bad about it? A special forces made up from the village's best of the best, you weren't even forced into it. ROOT on the other hand...> I almost forgot the Chunin ExamsI'm sorry, what? You mean the thing every village did individually before the third war? How?
We can argue all day about how the other Hokages fucked up, and how everyone is shit. But the REAL question is how is Takeshi gonna do better?How will we make Konoha Great Again?
>>2813745>Just because a few can do it doesn't mean the majority will.Then why didn't the majority of the Uchiha follow Madara's lead?>How come only the Uchiha being isolated make them desire rebellion?Because they were the only ones sequestered off outside the village in a ghetto. >an Uchiha caused the fox to attack using the sharinganObito, who was a follower of Madara. The only Uchiha who ever was a follower of Madara after the village was founded. >as for ANBU, what's bad about itGee, I wonder what led to Danzo being able to create ROOT.>Edo Tensei but that by itself isn't really muchYes, it is. Creating actual necromancy to commit war crimes is anything but a good thing. Not being forward-thinking enough was Tobirama's problem all around. >>2813762>make Konoha Great Again?That's another Danzo/Tobirama meme.
>>2813762I'm just fooling around and not taking it too seriously, not every day you get to talk Naruto.>But the REAL question is how is Takeshi >How will we make Konoha Great Again?Do we really need to become hokage? I mean, there's simply no way we can reach Naruto levels of power unless we scrap the idea of even trying to, and autistically focus on fuinjutsu and go full ninja batman with a contingency and tool for any and all threats.Konoha is the greatest it's ever been.
>>2813762Naruto made it pretty greatThe best we can do is use the bricks he laid to squash all the oppositionKonoha kurbstomp
>>2813780No one is going to make it to the level of nart and sauceThose two are literal god beingsThey need to die so the power levels can go back to normal
>>2813785>Konoha kurbstompGo back to hell Madara
>>2813776>Then why didn't the majority of the Uchiha follow Madara's lead?What does it have to do with this?Madara claimed the Uchiha were getting screwed by the Senju, but the rest were tired of fighting so they didn't follow Madara, the curse is a reaction of hatred not complacency, seeing what you love most die in front of you, not getting nickel and dimed. Why would they follow Madara? It was only later that shit started to sour and it was the nine tails caused by an Uchiha with the curse that tipped it to the breaking point.>Because they were the only ones sequestered off outside the village in a ghettoSo? outside or inside, every clan still isolated themselves, not like a "ghetto" made of only Uchiha would be too unbearable to live in. Doubt there was a lot of crime against your own damn family.But fine I'll give you this one.>Obito, who was a follower of Madara. The only Uchiha who ever was a follower of Madara after the village was founded.Yeah, mostly because after getting no support from the still battle weary clansmen, Madara left and later got killed by Hashirama in a duel he personally called out. Bet you if he was around longer he'd have gotten more followers, after all, generations later, after Obito sicced the Nine Tailed fox on the village and villagers' view of the clan hit rock bottom, whether the people were aware of how true their assumptions were or not, it was enough for the clan to go full "Madara was right" and plan a coup.It's a self fulfilling prophecy, at the core of it all, it's an Uchiha issue and not something set in motion by Tobirama's rule, since Madara trying to turn the clan against the village and the Senju because he read some rock, was already happening during Hashirama's rule as Hokage.Cont.
>>2813954>Gee, I wonder what led to Danzo being able to create ROOT.Hiruzen allowing Danzo power to create The Foundation and making his own task force as a division of ANBU loyal to him and not the village, then believing him at face value when he ordered Danzo to disband it after Danzo's involvement in the Uchiha downfall? Kinda like how Hiruzen let his former pupil go after he caught him using the people from the village as test subjects for human experimentation to achieve immortality.Guy was soft.It certainly wasn't Tobirama, because not only are special task forces a thing anyone can come up with, their training took more inspiration from the Mist village than anything else.>Yes, it is. Creating actual necromancy to commit war crimes is anything but a good thing. Not being forward-thinking enough was Tobirama's problem all around.Dude wanted an edge, the world was in a constant state of cold war going on world war, tailed beasts are a thing, there's reasons beyond "committing war crimes" to try it. Say it's a time when your strongest are dead and you need a quick way to bolster a defense against an overwhelming enemy by bringing back previous Hokage, say a guy's mortally wounded but not dead yet so he volunteers to be sacrificed or you use prisoners set for execution or life imprisonment as fodder for it. Shit could work without being so morally black, you can't completely look at it from your point of view, besides shortly after he created the Justu and saw how little it yielded for the cost it had in it's current state, rather than try and perfect it at the cost of countless sacrifices, he stopped working on it, classified it as forbidden and moved on. I'd say it was forward thinking enough.>Discussing Naruto between watching some vids. This is quite comfy
>>2813745>Isn't every clan basically kept in their own spots in the village? Like the Nara have their own place, complete with their own forest, the Hyuuga have their own compound, ect.>How come only the Uchiha being isolated make them desire rebellion?Wait, didn't that stem from Tobirama making the Uchiha the police force in a power play move that would force their clan as a whole partision and therefore take away any real political power they would have as a founding clan and any realy say in how the village would run? That seems like a pretty legitimate reason to be frustrated with their situation. Not enough to support their decision to revolt mind you but it makes it understandable. That and the tensions set up by Danzo between the police force (aka the uchiha) and the villagers after the ninetail attack and you start to see their point quite a bit.
>>2813780>Not being Hokage>Not gaining the title granted to who the village considers their greatest ninja>being this much of a quitter this damn earlyNigga have we been playing the same quest?
>>2813997>>Not gaining the title granted to who the village considers their greatest ninjaYou don't need the title to be one of the village's greatest ninja.Is all that paperwork and sitting on our ass worth the title?>>being this much of a quitter this damn earlyIn achieving Naruto levels of strength? Yeah, totally. Dude's a beast: can spam shadow clones out the ass, knows devastating jutsu said clones can also perform, Uzumaki blood gives him great Chakra reserves, chosen one gives him more, being the jailer of the Nine Tails gives him EVEN MORE along with all the shit being a jinchuriki entails, Toad Sage, ect, ect.Dude's beyond broken.I did suggest an alternative though.
How long is the boxing quest gonna last for?
>>2814026What you suggest was basically be a fucking ninja which is what we are already doing. It;s like someone running a marathon and when they ask how to do better you say run.
We could reform the Ten Tails.
>>2813451>Fueling ninja wars to come.Technically, that's still being a good Hokage. After all, what's even the point of ninja without enemies to use them on?A world at peace has no need for a military. Of course, if somebody starts shit, then the world is no longer at peace.
>>2814026Two things to consider1) Mini has once said it is completely possible to get that strong if we put enough effort and keep working hard and creatively. Hard as fuck to pull off but possible.2) you are basically quitting at the age of 12, we're not even close to even considering trying to go for hokage seriously and you're not even bothering to see how we stack up post time skip in a quest that has so far been all about hard work, drive, and wit paying off. Do you not feel even a little shame?
>>2814039>It;s like someone running a marathon and when they ask how to do better you say runAre you saying that isn't a good suggestion boy?All you gotta do is Ninja harder!>"Sensei I'm getting the living shit beaten out of me!">"Holy fuck! I didn't think it'd come to this! You gotta NINJA HARDER kid! Stick to the basics, remember your training and NINJA HARDER! you still have chakra in your body, NINJA HARDER!">"Yes sensei, I haven't used everything I've learned yet!">WILL OF FIRE >MUH MY NINJA WAY!>Takeshi wins>"Congrats Takeshi, you're truly the most splendid ninja"
>>2814056I like your enthusiasm, but we can go further. Now hear me outTwenty Tails
What does the PC's character sheet look like right now anyways? could have sworn we had a pastebin or something about it.
>>2814056If we use our shika connections we can convince him to lets us make the second akatsuki and start the master plan of becoming the new coolest guy
Its been a while since I've been following this, did we ever decide on which girl we're going for?
>>2814196It seems to be between Mari and Sarada with Ai being a distant, distant third. and Shizune or Sakura for Milf bangarang
>>2814210Mari was the patrician choice over failed genetics and autism, so good to hear
>>2814196>>2814210>>2814214>nobody remembers best girl YasuMan fuck y'all and your shit taste.
>>2814220Yasu hates us though>>2814225Big fit swordswoman who is Hanto's sister.
>>2814220Literally who. >>2814210>>2814214>>2814196>>2814225Hmmm, not that Sarada is any good, she's trash, but is part of the reason Mari is so popular because she's Tenten's daughter and Tenten got turbocucked in LNQ?
>>2814220Isn't that the annoying cunt some anons want because they are fags and have a fetish for cunty girls with muscles that would dominate them?
>>2814238Ew the girl whose eye we ruined was a better choice then her.
>>2814243Yeah, it's the worst. At least we can agree on that.
>>2814240Nah, she was popular even before the particular but of shit happened. She's one of our rivals and not autistic about it, even if she can be a bit of a bitch.>>2814243Yee
>>2814256When it comes to matters of the dick, there can be common ground
>>2814258Could it have boosted her popularity I wonder? I've liked her since around the beginning, but that doesn't have much to do with Tenten.
>>2814220Nobody cares about Yasu
>>2814240She also has first girl syndrome while also being the girl that triggered takeshi's character arc(that spare birthed his lust for victory)
>>2814289Wouldn't Ai be considered first girl?
So who do you guys want to tutor Takeshi during the time skip?
Ice girl Best girl
>>2814313Personally I'd enjoy Naruto, but Sasuke would probably work better for us.>>2814318Oh yeah, I could see her being viable if she didn't live in a far away nation.
>>2814313Both fit Different parts of TakeshiSasuke fits his favoring of agility, misdirection, weapon use and being a ruthless bastard exploiting any advantage to win.Naruto fits him boosting his friends, using summons well, our approach to setting up the kill with a fucking huge hammer blow technique, and setting the pace of the battle on our own terms. Also making new techniques.
>>2814313Tsunade probably isn't doing anything important
>>2814334Plus sasuke would be able to teach us way more jutsu while naruto would be able to help us further along to unlocking sage mode than on our own.
>>2814334I don't think the making of new techniques is strictly a Naruto thing, remember Takeshi is already the first soap jutsu user.
It's a shame around the time this quest started the anime hadn't aired yet so Mini didn't have the canon class to draw from beyond what little was shown in the Movie after they already graduated, else I would be saying we go after Class Prez, because from what little I'm seeing of the anime right now, she's nice, plus the other girls in class have nice designs like the ponytail girl, goth loli, cat girl and twintails...Anyway, I'm for Sarada, I just really dig her overall design from the Movie Don't fucking know why the editor let the mangaka get away with redesigning her to dress like some ladyboy from Thailand, she's also less cunty than Sakura was and is more on the prim and proper side so when she relaxes and cuts loose it's some prime gap moe shit, plus, in quest we've trained together, got into a friendly rivalry and it's fun to pester her, reading Sakura's reactions to our presence around her daughter was also entertaining as fuck since day one too, and I still long for more of it.The OC girls just can't compete in my opinion.
>>2814370>The OC girls just can't compete in my opinion.Your opinion is trash then, because Sarada is low tier. I do wish Mini had the canon class though.Explosion girl, doll girl, hawawa.
>>2814370I just really our interactions with her and I agree messing with her is fun. Plus if does get romantic I see it being really funny down the line. I'm all for Sarada, but no hard feelings against marifags.
>>2814385She's not low tier, though she isn't the choice I'd go for if we did have the canon class, like I said, I'd have tried for Class Prez, or "Awawa" as you put it.Also I really wanna see Sasuke's reaction to us dating her daughter, will he enlist us for training from hell to see if we are worthy? Will he unlock a new, never before known version of the sharingan from the trauma, or will he just say "hn" and roll with it?Will Sakura try to keep it together because her daughter's living her youth reminds her of the reality that her man's barely ever home harder?
>>2814156I'll post it the next time I run. It's in the last couple threads somewhere. >>2814031Hard to say, honestly. I thought THIS wasn't going to take all that long. (and it wouldn't have if I were actually writing the entire time) So, in short, we'll find out together. >>2814293I think Mari is more of a first girl than Ai, because when you met Ai she was damn near robotic. Now she emotes all the time. You were HER first girl all along.
>>2814442>You were HER first girl all along.That's beautiful mini
>>2814442Just don't have it run for 3 fucking years please, by god I want to see the ending of this quest more than I want to see a boxing one
Thinking about, since we have the owls for good genjustsu and would still be in the village and thus be able to get extra tutoring from someone like kakashi or shika nart might be the best choice
>>2814489I'll try to make it short, I promise. I intend for it to be short and sweet, so that I can come back to it again later on.
>>2814433>She's not low tieYes she is. She's half Sakura and half Uchiha. Not that Uchiha waifus are inherently bad, Izumi was a qt, but Sarada is meh at best.
>>2814494That's actually a pretty good point. On the flipside, traveling with Sasuke would make us more well traveled and an experienced elite ninja, as we would be with him as he does his work for the village. Just more things to consider when the vote comes.
>>2814598>She's half Sakura and half Uchiha.>implying that isn't a good combo: the design of Sakura mixed with the ambition and ability to actually be useful from an UchihaIt's good, add to that the fact she's less of a bitch than Sakura ever was, she's the one that cooks which is halfway to wife material already all while being a tad more on the serious but enabling side and you've got someone that isn't "low tier"
>>2814683>Short Qipao with bike shorts>not good
Waifus are irrelevant, training is all that matters.
>>2815063Waifus can help us train.
>>2815063Waifus aid or training and can help us improve with spars.
>>2815311 >>2815321>Waifus help us train.You do realize if that's the case, Sadara is our best pick, right?As our hard counter, she would help us patch up our weakness.If the tricks we develop work on her, they should work on anyone.
>>2815379That looks like fanart of the manga. Disgusting. Mari would work just fine too.
By the way mini, are gonna keep screwing us over in the future? I mean I know we aren't that special but look at the shit you pulled in the earlier threads and by god you are a major cunt when it come to it.
>>2815452I like having to struggle.
>>2815458Yeah but he was a major cunt to us and literally no one else. Have some other people have to deal with hardships for once.
>>2815391Mari can't even see through our genjustu, which is one of our main methods of attack.Now you can say that Mari would make a good punching bag to practice moves on, but anyone could do that.Sparing with Sarada is the best way to find ways to cover our weaknesses, and she knows a number of genjustu and medical skills to help us expand our particular skill list.You don't have to like Sarada, but if we are picking a waifu to help us become better ninja, Sarada is the clear pick.
>>2815707>Mari can't even see through our genjustuThats straight up wrongThe byakugan isn't immune like the sharingan but it can notice genjustu immediatlyMari is for making stronger harder to get out of genjustsu, sarada is for practicing with out genjustu
>>2815775>Mari is for making stronger harderYou could have just stopped there anon, I agree.
>>2815707To add to this anon, Sarada will also give us better standing to squeeze out some extra skills and/or techniques from Sasuke and Sakura, because sure, they might not mind training some random kid with potential a few things here and there, but they have their own stuff to do and their own daughter to train, but if it's a prospective son-in-law however, it might open up their schedule.I'll be honest, I want Sakura to teach us her taijutsu technique. It can be really useful beyond just being able to punch people into a fine red mist: we could punch the battlefield into an uneven mess then apply genjutsu to hide some of it so enemies trip and doubt each step they take, making them easier for our team to take out, or apply it to our legs for explosive bursts of speed and power, or letting us give any team we are on a demolitions expert without a need for explosives or extra gear, just punch the target to rubble. The possibilities, and all without the danger that comes from opening the Gates
>>2815775You might be Right, I'm just thinking back to the fight with Mari where we were able to get her pretty easily get her caught.Either way I feel like that still means Sarada is the better training partner out of the two, assuming we have more access to their time if they are our waifu.Takeshi has genjutsu animal buddies that can help him develop stronger genjutsu. What we need is to develop tricks that are still useful without them.Sarada's knowledge also would help a lot, considering she's a top student as well as a prodigy ninja.
>>2815837Mari is also a top tier ninja and a prodigyMari would also be able push us to the heights of our taijustu dut to her fighting styleMari also gets us access to more weaponsNothing is stopping us from developing non-genjustu related tricks
>>2815837>>2815863Aside from our squad, who isn't a top tier ninja and a prodigy? Also isn't Sarada still mildly shadow running about our abilities?
>>2815863Sure Mari is pretty talented, but let's be real here, Sarada is the superior ninja.So while nothing is stopping us from making new tricks, trying them on Sarada would be the best option due to her eyes and superior skill level (even if it us only by a little bit).And as far as taijustu goes, just like we have the owls to teach is genjustu, we have our brother to teach us our family's Iron Fist style.Weapons also aren't our thing. We have our special jet blade, but that's it. We are about to start training with Sauske anyway on top of that.>>2815899>Also isn't Sarada still mildly shadow running about our abilities?She has been, and that's just another reason to have her as a sparring waifu.Not only is she already our natural counter, she has already put time into finding even more ways to counter us.She is the last fight before time skip for a reason folks.
Start the spar with Sarada off with Hidden Mist jutsu.those fucking orbs of anger and hatred can't see through it
>>2815863Sarada's still the best choice for a blend of waifu and training.>Mari would also be able push us to the heights of our taijustu dut to her fighting styleNo she wouldn't, Mari's style is a blend of Tenten and Neji, so Sarada'd make a better sparring partner to improve ourselves overall simply because she can see our moves before we throw them and counter rather than be able to either gentle fist our ass or spam her arsenal from afar, plus we can work on our medical jutsu with her between spars.>Mari also gets us access to more weaponsThat isn't a plus, especially considering the reason she even has access to those: she helps around her parent's shop, meaning less time she has for us. More weapons means we need to spread ourselves over even more things than we already have, rather than waste time trying to be somewhat proficient in many weapons, it's better to just focus on our sword and Sausage can help with that, we already have poisons, Kunai and potentially Chakra Scalpel once we get more proficient in it as backup weapons.
>>2815921I don't think we should train with sauceHe may fight like us but he can't really teach us a lotNaruto can help us out in two of our budding trchniques while getting us closer to dage modeSauske doesn't really offer much in what we can learnAlso going with sauske stops us from learning from the mega nin in the village
>>2815969We learn sage mode from summons and not people bruh, and it varies from contract to contract, Naruto can't help us when we have a contract with owls, not toads.We get more experience traveling with Sauce than staying in the village with Nardo, plus Nardo's Hokage, most of the time we'd be getting a clone for sure.Sauce has the Sharigan, dude can teach just about any jutsu he's seen a couple of times, heck, he's the one that teaches Boruto the Rasengan in the movie.Since this would be for a timeskip, it really doesn't matter much if we stay in the village or not, unless QM intends to also inject some social link choices into it if we do stay.A tough choice.
>>2815921I more meant that she wouldn't want to train with is since she won't trust us and any attempt made to get closer would have her push back for the same reason.I would like to point out that there is also the chance of people just not liking is that way regardless of what we do, but let's be real, this a quest so you can somehow win over anyone you try for no matter what.
Hey anyone remember that plant quest line we never bothered with?
>>2815969From Mini himself (Thread 65)>Sasuke just knows way more Ninjutsu, taijutsu techniques, genjutsu, he's just more skilled in almost every way. Skill vs Power.So naturally, as a ninja who's whole gimmick is being a skillful ninja rather than an overpowered wizard, Sauce makes the most since. Also if you are worried about Sage Mode(Thread 65)>You will NOT come out of timeskip with sage mode already learned in any case, though. Just have a better understanding of it.And also >Since Naruto is a Sage, you would learn considerably more about it with him. But with Sasuke, you'd still be able to visit the Owls, and they can teach you about the same thing. Just not at the same rate. So either way we will be able to gain access to Sage Mode.>>2816036>I more meant that she wouldn't want to train with is since she won't trust usShe has been warming up to us slowly. Sarada didn't want to waste her time getting to know us in case we are just a fluke or another guy trying to get in her pants, but she still recognized us as a potential threat so she has put time into combating us in case she ever needed to fight us due to her studious nature.As we have trained with her, she has been forced to see us more as a person, and our standing with her has slowly started to rise.As of now, she really can’t figure us out. We have gone from fluke to potential hurdle, and this next fight will determine if we quality as a proper rival and officially worth knowing. I would also like to remind everyone that Mari saw us the same way at the start, but we proved her misconceptions about us wrong pretty early in the quest giving her more time to warm up to us.This is our first time proving ourselves to Sarada, and there are no reasons not to expect things to go similarly.>I would like to point out that there is also the chance of people just not liking is that way regardless of what we doVery True.
>>2816191>Owl Sage modeWould the eyes be like that one girl in the Sand Chunin Exams filler?
>>2816205Fuck if I know.From what I remember Mini has been pretty vague with what our sage mode would do.Part of the fun.
>>2815999>We learn sage mode from summons and not people bruh, and it varies from contract to contract, Naruto can't help us when we have a contract with owls, not toads.No mini said he could, we wouldn't have it unlocked post time skip but we'd be much further along and have a much better understanding of what sage mode is, means, and how to aquire it. It was one of the pluses listed if we chose him.
>>2816253>>2816205I think we might get wings, so that'd be pretty sweet if true.
Honestly, I'm fine with either Mari or Sarada,(leaning Mari though) but as long as we don't waifu Ai I'm good.Weird incesty vibes are just too strong, and she needs friendship more.
>>2817044Himawari is also better than Salad.
>>2817077>HimawariI'm not...against it perseI just feel weird about it, I know the age gap was reduced in quest but she still feels way to young for me to even think about, even if we are playing a tween. Maybe if we interact more post timeskip.
>>2817108Interaction's way too limited honestly.
>>2817219Yeah but that's perfectly understandable. We're a young ninja still training up and getting stronger, all of the people our age have their careers to think about and need to build themselves up early. This was never really meant to be a game that focused all that much on social/casual interaction and I am fine with that. Besides, we might have more interactions post timeskip since teammates on missions will be a lot more fluid, so I'm cool with that.
>>2815921>>2815938>Not waifuing best girl Shikadai>>2817044We will be a proper oniichan.I want to bully Ai's future boyfriend.
I forget does our boil release have a type of mist?
>>2817954Kinda? That's the neutralizing technique.If we want a obscuring one we'd need to modify hidden mist jutsu.
>>2817990Okay, yo see what I want to do in the fight is use a obscuring mist that also irritates the eyes, we get that and a lot of magic eye users are gonna have a bad day.
>>2818013That's not a bad idea, just regular soapy mist would work for that. Just enough to get into the eyes of anyone not wearing goggles or something
>>2817954Yes and no? Boil Release is more chemicals and shit, but we can use a specif form of white base, while crazyface could use boil release to create a green acidic chemical for his jutsu. So yes we're locked on a specific unnamed base we can use due to boild release, but we might be able to learn how to make something else in the future. Even if not though, our white base is already a pretty solid foundation for some terrifying jutsu.
>>2818023Yay, I thought of a good idea, just need to make sure I am here for next session to propose it.
>>2818055Shooting out a bunch of the normal looking mist in the area is a pretty good idea. Sarada shouldn't know about our boik release so she'll assume we're just trying to obscure the area. Then boom, her eyes start hurting like hell. Hard to use a sensory based jutsu if your eyes hurt way too much to even open. Use that initial opportunity to take her down in a definitive strike while she's distracted and we could potentially win a minute. Of course that's if it went perfectly
>>2818222The stringing is just a bonus too. The hidden mist technique on the sharingan is like putting a spotlight on someone with NVGs.
>>2818222>Sarada shouldn't know about our boik release so she'll assume we're just trying to obscure the area.I wouldn't count on it, Takeshi bragged to basically everyone he could that he developed Boil release.
how far off is Takeshi from Special Jounin?
>>2818403Maybe I'm remembering wrong but didn't he only tell naruto and kakashi?>>2818836Between the advanced release and his much better than average genjutsu, I would say so possibly. If he learned more advanced jutsu for either than I'd say definitely.
>>2819177And Ai and the one dude in the science lab who helped test how effective our mist was. Those are just the ones of the top of my head though.
>>2819188Yeah, and since this is a *ninja* village we can extend that to "Basically everybody."Especially Salad Shadowrunner over here.Still doesn't mean it's not a good trick to use against her. After all, if there's a counter to it, I'd rather figure out against her than against someone who *really* wants us dead.Also, if we can anticipate that she's *going* to counter it, we can predict her actions. Let's use her shadowruns against her. Problem is, we haven't been shadowrunning her back, so we don't know how much of her shadowrunning is genuine or memetic.Either way, we should think of some obvious/effective counters to our own technique.Wind jutsu could blow it away.Fire jutsu could evaporate it. Fire jutsu could also set the playing field on fire, thus limiting our movement options. Even if she can't see us, she'll know we can't be inside the fire--unless we *can* because we're motherfucking Takeshi, and we use that tactic a lot too.Then there's that one Earth jutsu that lets you burrow. Burrowing is such a good skill, we should try learning it someday.
>>2819216Its Erf though, we put all our skill points into water and fire for Boil release.
>>2819216Never said we shouldn't try it, just that we shouldn't expect her to not know about our Soap-no-jutsu..
Maybe trick her by using the mist jutsu and when she is in it switch to using the soap one? Then again that relies on her staying inside the mist which I doubt she will do unless we back her into a corner.
>>2811197YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOLY FUCKING SHIT MINI RIDES AGAIN.
By the way mini we better still have chakra suppression after you retconed the seal.
>>2819471She probably won't be able to tell the difference between the two until her eyes begin to sting. But if Mist costs less than Soap, then we can fake her out with it and conserve Chakra. Trick her into closing her eyes during mist jutsu or opening them during a soap jutsu. Crossup.
Is anyone gonna archive this thread?
>>2821197We're only on page 2. We've still got like a week of life.
>>2821408Yeah but mini for all his semi decent writing is a fucking idiot and tends to go by sessions not by how much a thread can hold.
>>2821429Like he ill do like 3 session at most in one thread even if there plenty left, heck thread 69 is the worst offender.
>>2821560Look at how much that thread is just anons talking vs actual quest post by him.
>>2819849retcon? Chakra suppression? not sure what you mean
>>2821959Chakra suppression seal. It lowers chakra to nil but any chakra usage breaks it. We did learn it but ya said no becuase you don’t update the pastebin and leave it to anons
>>2821960I think I remember talking about this at some point. At the time I didn't have any memory of it either, but it sounds like something I could see happeningAlso not entirely true, people did that for the first few but I started doing it myself after it got long (because things were getting dropped off, maybe that's what happened) If you can find the posts where you learn it, I'll give you the tech as you deserve it.The only reason I don't just give it to you is because a similar thing happened where someone thought we learned something and it got forgotten, but it turned out that we totally just talked about it and ended up picking something else.
>>2821970Right. Well time to archive binge for it then.
>>2821972If you have any idea when/where it might be I'll take a look too. I just have 0 idea
>>2821973Think it was after making chuunin and we were studying sealing? But I don’t recall exactly
>>2821976where the archive at?
Boruto Quest 41 is where the Chakra Suppression is from
>>2822126Seals should actually be usable against the sharingan right? A combination of the suppresion seal, boil release white mist jutsu, and a quick strike with our sheath blade could prove for a winning combo. She wouldn't be able to see us, sense us, have all of her sense irritated, her skin likely in pain, and boom she's out.
>>2822155>Although you're not physically exhausted, you get the sensation that if you attempted to do a jutsu like this, nothing would happen. However, you know from the book that any amount of chakra moving rapidly through the body will disrupt the sealDepends on the order we do it in, I suppose? Don't discount her entirely if we *somehow* manage to bypass a Sharingan, anywayAlso, since I've only just caught up with the Quest and also don't keep up with the manga, Sarada a best.
>>2822159Well unless mini has it differently, her sharingan shouldn't be all that powerful just yet, and if we use the mist and then the seal she might not even be able to see us at all.
>>2822155>>2822159Chakra suppression is less sealing an enemy’s chakra and more our own to avoid detection.
Don;t forget we mastered Chakra scalpel and diagnosis palm I believe
>>2822188Yeah I know, that's why I suggested using it after covering the area in corrosive mist.
>>2822524We have a mildly irritating mist at best.
>>2822739Not even that, yet. Your only Boil-Release move is for neutralizing acids>>2822126I see it, I'll add it to the pastebin when I post it.>>2822237This is also true, I'll update that>>2822155Just keep in mind that if you use a Jutsu after Chakra Suppression it breaks it.
>>2822922A substance that .neutralizes acids still sounds like it would mess with your eyes if it got in them.
>>2822953Also do we have smoke bombs?
>>2822953Well, it's not, because chakra. This was decided when the move was made. It hasn't ever done it before, it won't start doing it now.
>>2822966Then could we make a jutsu that makes acid that only dissolves specific things?
>>2822988Sure, in the future.
>>2822994One step closer to project Yo-Yo Ma.
Here's something fun I wanted to share with you guys. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNdVw_TEo0oA look into the history of ninjas in popular culture. Spoiler: It's always been massive amounts of bullshit at best
https://youtu.be/Lw9YNl-B5wkNaruto grins. "Great! Then let's get this underway!"Boruto burps, and speaks between mouthfuls of barbecue chips. "This is gonna be sick!"Sasuke and Naruto both look down at him. Boruto keeps chewing his food, and waves at Sasuke. "Hi Sasuke. Big fan."Sasuke stares expressionless. "He's sure grown a lot." Boruto waves at both you and Sarada, but Naruto spins him towards him. "How the hell did you get here!?" The blonde shinobi drops his chip as he's shaken. "I followed you as you left the house! Also I might have told everyone that this was happening!" At once, dozens of faces start to peek out from the foliage surrounding you. All of your classmates and more tentatively whisper."Look, it's really Sasuke!" "Are they gonna fight?" "I can't believe Boruto was telling the truth.." Kichiro and Ai step into visibility from the edge as well. Kichiro cups both hands to his mouth and shouts. "Let's go, Takeshi! Take this bitch down!!! Avenge my and Ai's loss in the tournament! Show her....Show her..." Tears well up at the corners of his eyes. "Show her what it really means to be a shinobi! Like you've shown us all this time!!" He coughs up blood from yelling so hard, and nearly falls down before Ai catches him. He's still significantly injured from using the gates, but she holds him up. Ai doesn't say anything, simply shooting out a hand and giving you a thumbs up. You respond in kind, and the small crowd explodes. All of your friends and enemies can be heard, cheering and jeering your name. The same can be said for Sarada. Through all of this, your opponent hasn't taken her eyes off of you once. She slowly folds her glasses and tosses them into the grass near the memorial stone, at her Dad's feet. "I have something to show someone, too." says the Uchiha. Sasuke turns. "They're really popular, huh?" Naruto nods. "I think this is something everyone's been wanting to see for a long time now.." Cont.

Now I'm getting motivated
>>2823220Wait, do we still have the weight on and can we remove them for that temp boost in speed?
>>2823231Then maybe we can use that as a surprise. frankly i don;t know how we are gonna beat this girl in this fight as she hard counters us.
Sarada slowly takes a fighting stance, and you do the same. She widens her stance and hunkers down, slowly drawing her fists into place. You hop lightly in place, warming your legs up and throwing a couple of jabs through the air. At a glance, one could see that your stance is more relaxed and speed centric. Her stance is for throwing the hardest shots possible, while still remaining fundamentally sound. Naruto sighs. "This wasn't at all how I expected this to go, but I guess it's fine. Ready, set, go!" Neither you or Sarada opt to move from your positions. You bob in place lightly. You notice that she hasn't activated her Sharingan yet. Perhaps she doesn't see you as a reasonable threat, yet?What do you want to do? >A. Use Roof Tile Shuriken to throw rocks from the pond behind you at her. >B. Use Shunshin, and attack head on. Focus on dodging her first attack and countering.>C. Cast the Hidden Mist Jutsu>D. Write-in
>>2823238>>C. Cast the Hidden Mist Jutsu
>>2823238>B. Use Shunshin, and attack head on. Focus on dodging her first attack and countering. Based on her stance i think she is expecting us to go defensive. Catcher off gaurd and see if we can catch her on the backfoot.
>>2823238>D. Start shooting Senbon at her, get her to start reacting first and see what she does.I can't remember her build besides her having some genjutus and some medical.
>>2823261Here's her statsTaijutsu: 2.0Ninjutsu: 4.0Genjutsu: 2.5Strength. 2.5 (+1.5 from Chakra Strength.)Speed: 3.0Intelligence: 3.5Chakra Control: 4.0Stamina: 3.0She has stage 2 Sharingan, Lightning and Fire elements, and many types of medical jutsu
>>2823238>B. Use Shunshin, and attack head on. Focus on dodging her first attack and countering.
>>2823286So she has 3 maxed cap stats, crap dont; see a way to win this. What does int effect anyways? like how fast one can learn?
>>2823238>B. Use Shunshin, and attack head on. Focus on dodging her first attack and countering.Once she breaks out the Sharingan, then we use the hidden mist.
>>2823286Just a general representation of "Smartness", doesn't have a lot of direct applications. More like a flavor stat.The stat cap is actually 5.0, as well. Still, she's damn good at them.
>>2823310>>2823303Woops, meant to quote you here anon

We have an element advantage at least but i don;t think we have the capacity to spam water jutsu like crazy yet. The more i read into this tho the more I wonder why anons wanted to get their ass kicked. Also maybe we should look into learning some physical enhancing jutsu later on.
>>2823253>>2823289>>2823308B wins, update incoming
>>2823320We probably shouldn't spam some of our more powerful jutsu as well, since she could spit it right back at us.
>>2823320>>2823320You have like, no faith in our abilities.She can have all the strength in the world but if she can't hit us it doesn't matter.We don't need to spam anything, but if we do we have a water source right behind us to make our water skills more efficient.We might not have our bread and butter genjustu, but we have other effective moves and a summon.It's not gonna be easy, but this is a fight we can win.
As you stand there and bob up and down, you lightly twitch your hands and body as to potentially distract her. You know these types of feints won't help once she activates her Sharingan, so it's best to use them now. As you do so, she doesn't react at all. Bobbing up slightly higher than normal, you let your center of gravity drop into the ground as you bend your knees slightly. The chakra swirls through your system and expels from the soles of your feet, rocketing you forward at high speed. You close the distance instantly, landing in front of her just outside her range. She fires off a chakra enhanced punch as you close in, but you pivot your feet slightly and slip the attack. Landing just to the right of her, you let loose a jab that strikes her on the cheek bone. She goes down and does a sweeping kick, but you hop over it and strike downwards with your right hand as she comes up. She catches the punch with one hand, and shoots an uppercut as she rises. You catch the punch as well, however a surge of chakra racing through her fist causes you to be shot high into the air. Your hand is numb, for a moment. You spin wildly out of control while in the air, almost sick. Twisting like a cat, you regain your balance and flip once more to land on your feet. Sarada uses Shunshin herself, and closes the distance. She holds her right hand far back, and is about to let a right straight fly..Blocking this would probably be a bad idea. What do you do?>A. Use Shunshin combined with a jab, to counter her attack at high speed. >B. Throw down a smoke bomb, and then cast the Haze Clone Jutsu as she's blinded.>C. Back step and throw a poison senbon. >D. Write-in
>>2823351>A. Use Shunshin combined with a jab, to counter her attack at high speedI also wanna add that we should be in her blind spot as much as possible while we have an advantage
>>2823351>C. Back step and throw a poison senbonUse that shadow shuriken technique and throw a regular senbon with the poison one behind it.
>>2823351>A. Use Shunshin combined with a jab, to counter her attack at high speed
>>2823385I don't think we can do that.
>>2823351>A. Use Shunshin combined with a jab, to counter her attack at high speed. I really want to hit her with some kind of Genjutsu while the Sharingan is still down.
>>2823351>A. Use Shunshin combined with a jab, to counter her attack at high speed.>>2823394isn't that a basic technique taught in the academy? if a skilled genjutsu user like Takeshi doesn't even know that then the leaf academy is officially a shithole.
>>2823406It's not a basic taught as part of an exam like transform or clones. But you do know it
>>2823406We know it, all of out skills and jutsu's are in the pastebin.
>>2823406No I mean because senbon wouldn't leave a massive shadow for another one to hide under. We could pull something Saksue did once tho using our two shuriken if we destroy them.
>>2823351>>A. Use Shunshin combined with a jab, to counter her attack at high speed.Hope that our speed will outmatch her, and it leads to us going back to neutral ground. We will lose a full offensive if even her glancing blows send us flying.
>>2823425oh, no it should work fine. should we add a bit of chakra to make the first senbon explode as a distraction?
>>2823432> should we add a bit of chakra to make the first senbon explode as a distraction?Can't do that, not a jutsu/jutsu you know
>>2823441Could we do this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SylfeQa8_Qo
>>2823441>Heated Steel Jutsuoh right it melts it or breaks it from heat right? still seems like a good distraction.
>>2823446With set up beforehand, sure. But not at the moment. Your Fuuma Shuriken aren't rigged like thatAlso, A wins, update incoming
>>2823446We should totally have a a couple fuuma shuriken set up with wire later though
>>2823446We didn't prepare anything like that.I mean we have wire and 2 funa shuriken but they aren't rigged.I'd think we'd also need time and space to set up our wire, we fast but not that fast.
The only thing would have added to the punch is to add some senbon between our fingers but not too sure if that would have done anything.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNSf_w0Er70Just as she enters your range, you use a Shunshin of your own to dart directly into danger. As you shoot forward, you see her eyes go wide with surprise. She certainly didn't anticipate you rushing in like this. As she fires her right straight, you duck down under it and bring your left hand over top, the momentum crashing together and flipping Sarada's feet out from under her. Her back and head slam into the ground.A crisp, clean counter. The small crowd around you erupts. Boruto yells. "Get up, Sarada, your dad's watching! Stop messing around!" Looking down, you see blood leaking from the corner of her mouth. She spits it out, and opens her eyes, revealing the Sharingan. Though you don't notice, Sasuke smiles. What do you want to do? >A. Throw down a flash bomb and get your distance>B. Activate the Chakra Scalpel Jutsu and attack her>C. Take a step back and prepare to attack with your quick-draw sheath>D. Write-in
>>2823492If they were poisoned it would give us some time.She'd be able to heal it, but that's time we have to try to attack or make our next move.Since we have gone pretty offensive, i think a good idea is to poison some senbon, and prepare a smoke bomb. We go for another head on strike, but instead of attacking directly, we drop the bomb and go past her, throwing the poison senbon behind us.With the smoke up and her hopefully trying to get rid of the poison, we can set up Hidden mist, and plan from there
>>2823531>D. Hidden mist jutsu
>>2823531How far away from her are we right now?
>>2823531>A. Throw down a flash bomb and get your distanceAvoid close combat against any sort of eye niggers
>>2823548You're standing right over her. You essentially clotheslined her with your fist. It hurt a lot.
>>2823531>D. Write-inThrow down a flash bomb, get your distance, then Hidden Mist.
>>2823555Could we use a flash bomb and a explosive tag?or would we not have enough tine to prep both to go off?
>>2823531>B. Activate the Chakra Scalpel Jutsu and attack her
>>2823561backin this one
>>2823562 What I want to do is flash bomb and then as we get way throw an explosive tag,
>>2823531>>D. Throw a flash bomb as a decoy and then throw an explosive tag at her at a distance,
>>2823531>>A. Throw down a flash bomb and get your distance
>>2823555Looking at the description of Roof Tile Shuriken, it says that we can "remotely control, levitate and hurl spinning tiles in a nearby area". I'm pretty sure we can use this on more than just tiles right?Could we utilize this on Saradas own kunai/shuriken if we're close enough to her? I assume they're visible on her person, or at least where she keeps them is something we know. Maybe even the zippers or buttons on her shit or whatever.This isn't an immediate action I'm suggesting I'm supporting this>>2823561But I would like to know if its possible.
>>2823593Yes, you can use it on more than just tiles. Anything that's physically restricted can't be moved though, only loose objects.
>>2823543>>2823552>>2823561>>2823589These win, update incoming
>>2823593>>2823603In other words, we can do it after she's thrown them. And the same with the ones we've already thrown.
>>2823603How quickly can we perform the jutsu?
>>2823632That has some real potential
>>2823632It also says that the objects can be reinforced with chakra.
You throw down a flash bomb and leap back, wisely so. You narrowly avoid what would have been a devastating, spinning kick as she jumps onto her feet. Sarada is momentarily blinded just long enough for you to complete the Hidden Mist Jutsu. Holding your hands up in it's classic sign, a deep fog covers the field. You wait and listen silently for a few moments. You know that she won't be able to see through this mist as it's produced by chakra, so you should have a few minutes to think a bit more. You could use Chakra Suppression and your Jet Sheath to try and finish her in one attack. Or you could go for your poison and wear her down over a longer period. Something alarming happens, however.You hear the sound of someone using Shunshin, and something in the air above flutters against the light of the sun. It's Sarada. She flips over once, and slowly starts to turn as she rockets towards the ground. You hear her yell with all of her might, and she vanishes into the mist as she falls. An explosion blasts you off of your feet, and the mist all around you is blasted back from the shockwave. You tumble and roll in the field, completely disoriented. As quickly as possible, you jump to your feet to defend. Sarada appears in front of you suddenly, and you duck under a huge hooking punch. She anticipates your movement with her Sharingan, however, and you're caught by a side kick. Despite putting up your block, the force completely overpowers you and sends you flying. Your back smacks a tree, cracking the bark. You can barely breath, and pain is shooting through your entire body.In the distance, you can see Sarada staring you down with her red eyes. She shoots forward with Shunshin again, moving in short, sharp bursts. What are you going to do?>A. Use everything can to get your distance, and use the Summoning Jutsu to bring Danpei in. >B. Create Haze Clones. They mimic your chakra network, so she shouldn't be able to tell the difference. Plus you can reform them if they're destroyed. >C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speed>D.

How solid are the haze clones? Can they hold something if we give it to them or will it just fall through?
>>2823673>B. Create Haze Clones. They mimic your chakra network, so she shouldn't be able to tell the difference. Plus you can reform them if they're destroyed. >C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speed

Drop your weights for 3 posts of speedI think our biggest chance at winning this is suprising her with a this speed burst and summoning a big fuck off owl or somethingOwls are the strongest technique we have right now

>>2823673>C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speed>B. Create Haze Clones. They mimic your chakra network, so she shouldn't be able to tell the difference. Plus you can reform them if they're destroyed. How fast can we perform jutsu in general I guess? Like, 2 seconds?
>>2823703We don't have the chakra for "Big fuck off" anything bro.
>>2823673>>C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speed>>B. Create Haze Clones. They mimic your chakra network, so she shouldn't be able to tell the difference. Plus you can reform them if they're destroyed.
>>2823673...oh, right. She's half Sakura too...I wanna summon Danpei, but I don't think we can buy enough distance/time to do so against her, so that's out.Haze Clones sound good on paper, but I don't think it's a good idea here. The Chakra network might be the same, but she's also learned quite a few medic-nin skills, and that Sharingan can see tiny differences between us and our clones that only a medic would know to look for. For example, would our clones move like we do when we're wounded, or something.Therefore,>C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speed.Sharingan didn't help the Sauce Boss much against Lee when they fought. We need to press this advantage for everything it's worth.
>>2823688Only shadow clones have actual weight and grappling ability, every other clone is just (that material) in a human shape.
>>2823673>C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speedRaw stats can help
I'll bet money that the haze clones will be useless, just like every other time they've been used. She'll have some fuckoff aoe she'll spam and drain our chakra until we disband them.
>>2823698Even without the "boost" Takeshi at his base is .5 ahead of her speed wise. We only become 4/0 to her 3.0 for 3 turns, but we remain at 3.5 after those turns. This is the move we make if we're thinking about it in terms of endurance, I'd prefer the big boost now with a slightly diminished(but still better) speed than what we have now which is only on par with Sarada.We're still faster than her for the rest of the fight, we need every advantage we can get and I'd prefer the passive buff over the overcharge at our lowest.
>>2823720Actually yeah good point>>2823673Changing >>2823703 to just >C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speed
>>2823709Yeah change from that to just>C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speedWe don't even have a game plan for what to do with them, we should at least wait until we know what to do with them before just wasting the chakra.
>>2823673changing my vote>>2823684to just >C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speed
>>2823673>>C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speed>>D. Write-inPull out poison senbon and hold them in our fists, this should mitigate her sharingan since even if she can anticipate and counter our movement, doing so might have her stab herself on the tips when we move to block, poisoning herself
>>2823775We have to manually poison the senbon, not enough time.
>>2823775GuysIf you hold needles in your hand and punch someone, they're going to pierce you too.
>>2823708>>C. Drop your weights for 3 posts of speedChanging to this, although does she know about our weights?
We're going with C, drop your speed. Update incoming.
>>2823783Not if we WEAR THICK GLOVES
Sasuke gets a flashback to Lee kicking his ass as genin
>>2823783Not saying we punch her, just hold them in the palms of our closed hands so the points stick out, worst case it just slides deeper, but a firm grip would still break her skin and prick her, which is all the poison needs.Take a page from hedghogs. It's the only way to cripple the sharingan's crazy taijutsu capabilities.
>>2823794Oh. Well. She hasn't been shadowrunning as good as I thought.I feel like this is going to fuck with her.
>>2823805Wonder how Lee will feel about us copying him like this.
>>2823783>>2823809If we grip them like this (Though the senbon will be wrapped around our closed palms for obvious reasons) we can still punch while being able to make use of them in defending by just having them pointed in her direction when she throws a punch or a kick.Being able to predict won't do shit if she's gonna hurt herself when she capitulates on that.
>>2823794>2823794Mini Would make an incision near Sarada's eyes fuck with the chakra flow?I remember that and blood loss being a weakness for the byakugan.Or do we need to just make a cut over her eyes and have her blood block her sight?
As she rushes you down, you throw another flash bomb in front of her. Using this pause in the action, you dart back into the center of the field as quickly as possible. You fumble and fall on your back from the slight panic, but quickly stand up and start to strip off your weights.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaeXN-MByjUSarada looks over. "What's he doing..?" Naruto and Sasuke look at each other blankly. Naruto slowly starts to smile. You hold up your weights. "I know what Naruto wanted to show you, today, Sasuke!" You let go of the weights, and they start to fall to the ground. "Everyone, listen to me! These are the results of hard work!" The weights hit the ground, making an explosion of dust around you. Sarada shields her eyes from the dust, confused. "Training weights!? Do you really think that's going to-" You appear in front of her nigh instantaneously. "You know-" She punches at you, but you slide your head over to the side and cleanly dodge it. "You're probably-" She kicks at you from the other side, and you take a small step back and narrowly avoid being broken in half. "Not used to something like-" Sarada lets a flurry of punches loose, each one intending to obliterate you. But you weave your head between each one, easily seeing them coming yourself. Frankly, compared to Shozuku's punches, they're not intimidating at all.You slip to the left. "This-" You slip a punch to the right. "Am-" Duck under a hook. "I-" You pop in front of her, with a smile on your face. "Right?" You fire off a short, sharp hook. She raises her guard up, using the Sharingan to anticipate your movement. But it was only a feint. You stop the punch and come in with a right hook instead, sending her reeling. Sarada stumbles back and starts to go through handsigns, panicked. You look at her calmly with your plain brown eyes.

>Have sword and quickdraw sheath>Have perfect set up.>Anons prefer hand to hand to a dime store Lee because we'll never be the Green Beast himself instead of going full Jetstream Sam. Well then
>>2823950Soon my friend.
>>2823950Taking out nerves with something like chakra scaple can be important in a spar like thisIf it was a actual fight i would be dead set on the mutalation train
>>2823950Now that the Chakra Scalpel is in the vote it's fine.Basic punches and kicks is just showing off, we disable her with Chakra Scalpel the finish it with Jet Blade.
>>2823950We don't want to kill her. This is just a friendly spar after all.
>>2823950Tagging her a ton of times while completely cutting tendons and leaving her unable to move seems a lot easier honestly, and a cleaner win. Hell it would have worked on us if takeshi wasn't a turbo will power autist
>>2823966Who has heals, AND painkillers.
It also stops her from just healing herself. She can't do the jutsu if she can't move right? She isn't Kabuto.
>>2823966Plus even is she continues to fight she is gonna be have to either try and heal or keep fighting and lose blood. I doubt she will keep up sharigan and whilst healing because that seems like it would require way to much focus and Chakra to dodge us, heal and use special eye powers.
>>2823865>B. Jetsheath.I wanted to do A, since we have time to do either that or Danpei.C would let us know what she has in her arsenal and probably wouldn't get us hit.>>2823950I'm afraid of cutting her in half, though. You remember how we almost did that to Mari, right?
>>2823971Cool, try healing yourself with your immovable limbs. Unless you meant takeshi in which case well said friend.
>>2823961>>2823964Who said anything about mutilation and killing? The ones voting for severing nerves and cutting tendons are the ones that want to mutilate.We can swing our sword not to sever limb or kill, and still embody Sam if we're cheeky about it. This is a spar after all.
>>2823983>I'm afraid of cutting her in half, though. You remember how we almost did that to Mari, right?Ha, good times
>>2823985Yes I meant Takeshi. He is stupid crazy prepared.
>>2823985Try healing yourself when your opponent's on your ass and has speed on his side.Even if she could still do the jutsu, she wouldn't be able to heal herself mid combat.
>>2823995Then well said friend
I went the Scalpel route because I want to wear her down and cripple her movement before committing with the Sheath.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daPo6q4FXDwYou slowly start to walk forward, and closely examine her as you do. Her face is starting to swell from the blows that you've already landed. She finishes her jutsu, and holds up a kunai that starts to crackle with electricity. She's channeling lightning chakra through it, something capable of cutting through ordinary steel. You'll have to do your best to avoid and attack her at the same time. Thankfully, that's explicitly what your training is all about. You twitch and feint constantly, keeping her guessing on which angle you're going to attack from. She holds her stance, unsure of what to do. With this, you gain insight. Sarada's nature is to want to win. Boruto's nature is to want to win. So many opponents in your short career have all deeply wanted to win battle after battle, and chase after each victory with full force. They crush when they see the chance, and are cautious when they know they should be. It's fundamentally sound shinobi tactics.Staring into her eyes, you bear down with all of the pressure that you can muster. There's only a glimpse of fear in her red eyes, but it's enough for you to exploit.Shozuku wasn't afraid until the very end. He always came at you with everything he had.You go through handsigns. "Remember, Sarada, this is the difference-" You hold out your hands, glowing blue, and take a fighting pose. "Of those of us who wish to win-" In a flash, you appear behind her, and shout. "And those of us who wish to be the greatest!!" You slap her back thigh, and her leg goes somewhat limp. She spins around to try to punch you, but you easily duck under it, and slap her shoulder.Her arm goes limp, and with your other hand you slap the tricep. Then the bicep, then the calf, and then several spots on her back. In a flurry of light slaps, Sarada is totally disabled.You calmly step away, turning down and looking at her. "You know, if you weren't so cocky not using your Sharingan earlier, you probably would have beaten me. Good spar, though!" She's shaking as she stands, and gritting her teeth. "No! It's- It's not over!!" Sarada steps forward, trying to throw a punch. But she simply falls to the ground, face first. She keeps twitching from her attempts to move, but she's in way too much pain. Naruto steps forward, and throws a hand up. "The winner is Takeshi!!" All of your classmates rush into the field, and storm you. Kichiro and Ai lift you up from the bottom, as well as Shikadai and his squad. Even as they cheer your name and toss you into the air, however, you feel a small hint of sadness. You only won today because of your experience with Shozuku.Today you understood, that eyes without hunger, are no threat to you.
Maybe we could pull a fake out with our Jet Sheath at some point. like throw up a unlit bomb because everyone's first reaction would be to react to is only for them to not notice our hands already activating the mechanism for our blade.
>>2824011Sasuke and Naruto both look at each other once more, and Sasuke sighs and hands him a handfull of bills. You grin, and pump your fist to Naruto. Your friends all let you down, and you go over to Sarada. Is there anything you want to say to everyone present?>Write-in
>>2824016"Thanks for teaching me chakra scalpul Sarada! Really came in handy."
>>2824016Can we heal her? If so we should do that
>>2824016>start healing her as best you can"It *was* a weird request. But it was fun, too! Thank you."
>>2824016>Heal her>Great match, if I had messed up even a bit you would've won. Still, I got you this time didn't I?
Oh wow we did it....hmmmGood Moral though.>>2824016We kinda already said everything we needed to.Offer Sarada help if she'll take it.
>>2824035>>2824037I kind of want to use both of these.
Damn, just caught up.
>>2824016If we heal her we might as well use that Palm Bark Extract. We could just pick more up on the way home.
>>2824016"This is what Naruto wanted you to see. That sometimes playing it safe, be cautious, going through the motions without ambition or hunger, because the foe is beneath you, or that you've already hit your goals is not enough. The most dangerous dog in the fight is not the biggest, the strongest, the fastest, or even the smartest, Sage knows I a m easily beaten by you in one or more categories. The most dangerous is the one that's hungriest, the one willing to throw their body and heart into the fight just to go a half step farther to their goals."
>>2824016>Sasuke and Naruto both look at each other once more, and Sasuke sighs and hands him a handfull of bills. You grin, and pump your fist to Naruto......you know what I'm all for Sensei Naruto, I don't think there's ever been a point where he hasn't believed in us. Even taught a jutsu or two already.
>>2824069Just because Naruto bet on us winning? I mean, yeah it's nice, but what did you expect Sausage to do? Bet against his own daughter?
>>2824016>heal herI really want naruto to be our timeskip senseiDitching ghe village feels wrong and naruto has always supported us
>>2824016I dunno, I've got nothing. Maybe something along the lines of>You guys better catch up and beat me before I start getting a big head over all of this.How does that sound, does that sound stupid? I think it sounds kinda stupid.>>2824037This sounds unintentionally condescending. Which is totally in character for Takeshi. I'm pretty sure Mari's had a talk with him about it or something. Maybe add in>Oh, shoot. I'm doing it again, aren't I?>>2824035I like this one. I'll back it.>>2824029Ouch. I can feel that burn from all the way over here. I'd totally forgotten about that. If I'd remembered, I'd have voted for it too.If we say that to her, we'll get her as a rival for sure. Question is, who do we want as our rival, Mari or Sarada? This is just as important a question as which one we want as our waifu. If we wanna rival the Salad, this would work.
>>2824091I always support Sarada waifu
>>2824108I thought you hated Naruto.
>>2824091Eh Takeshi already has rivals, in the form of Ai and Kichiro. Sure it was nice to win against both Naruto and Sasuke's kids but they will probably grow up to be stronger than us naturally. I prefer rivals that are within our own bracket over the kind that are gonna be so much stronger than us.
>>2824091>implying they both aren't our rivals>implying our rivals have to be as autistically edgy as sauceKichibro is our main rival, but everyone wants to surpass us right nowWe're the rookie king and everyone knows it as fact now
>>2824087I mean, I'm not gonna say yes but I'm not gonna say no either...>>2824090Plus we'd have a bunch of teachers by extention. We could learn more from shizune, with sakura and sarada, get some tips from lee on improving our weight training. I think I prefer staying in the village over traveling.
>>2824115Mini's writing is good enough for me to ignore my dislike of the source material
>>2824117>they will probably grow up to be stronger than us naturallyThats loser talk
>>2824108Where you been nigga?
>>2824095Honestly, I can kinda see him do that, he's still that big of an asshole, at least canonically but how much did he know of us before this fight? If he was about as in the dark as Salad, I can see him betting on Sarada over us.
>>2824129He's retarded or something, he admitted it last thread.
>>2824091Sadara.She's gonna come back from this with a vengeance.It's gonna be great maybe she'll actually use some of her ninjustu next time
>>2824119We would be spending most of our time in Toad land but I suppose we will see the benefits although mini did want us to go with Naruto.>>2824127Unless you are willing to take super drugs or in the strangest of circumstances we get some how end up with something like super cells from the first I doubt we will be actually stronger than them. More tricky sure but not stronger.
>>2824130He probably knew jack shit other than us being a promising up and comerWas he watching the chunin exams or was he doing spy shit instead?
>>2824029>>2824034>>2824035>>2824037>>2824039>>2824054>>2824051Everyone step back as you kneel down. You roll Sarada onto her back, and she starts to shudder in pain again. Tears are streaming down her eyes, though you know it's not from being injured. "Would you like me to heal you?" She looks up at you, her sharingan still engaged. "Oh my..god. Shut. Up." You start to heal her, as well as rub a bit of the palm bark extract on her most damaged areas. She sighs deeply, the relief flowing through her. Sarada shuts her eyes for a few seconds, and opens them slowly. You grin. "Great match. If I'd have slipped up at all you'd have taken it. Still, got you, huh?"She smiles. "You're the worst. I hate you." You cock your head, confused. "Huh?? I don't get you sometimes." "You're telling me." she groans. "Do you know why you lost?" you ask?"Stop gloating already!" she yells. "You were only aiming to beat me." You turn over your shoulder and look to Naruto and Sasuke."What I'm aiming for is...different." After a few more moments of healing you help Sarada up to her feet. -----That's all for tonight folks. The last thread will be next week, on Monday night! Thanks for joining. I'll be around for some questions.
>>2824137She used her dad's lightning blade thing.Just we kinda are specced into dodging shit and were having a nice speed boost too. She picked the exact wrong technique to use. In her place I'd have flash bombed and set up clones to stall us and set up other moves.>>2824146He had to have the manuscripts of the matches minimum.
>>2824121Thanks som, much appreciated
>>2824148Thanks for running.
>>2824150He knew Sarada had lost her first and won the second, but that's all he asked about. Not even how.
Oh wait, I forgot something! One more small post coming guys
>>2824163…….. I miss when Sausuke actively prepared for things instead of just going lol sharinnegan!
>>2824150People don't abuse shadow-clones nearly as much as they should desu
>>2824177…. ANY type of clone woulda helped.Unlike her we don't have hax eyes so they actually work on us.
>>2824177It's meant for jounin and no one can use it like naruto. A handful at most if you're really good, a couple at most if you're decent.
>"Do you know why you lost?">"Stop gloating already!" >Continues to try to lecture the crying girl who he embarrassed in front of her estranged father about bullshit that doesn't even apply to her.Damn Takeshi never change.
As you help her over to her dad, you chuckle with a thought. "You know, I wouldn't have had a chance here if you didn't teach me how to use Chakra Scalpel. So thanks I guess!" Sarada's face goes white, and she falls completely limp to the ground. "AhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHH"She pounds her fists into the dirt once, and sighs, before sitting up. Sasuke nods. "This is why I'm never nice. This happens."
Can we get some thought for people who saw us win the fight?
God damn it, Takeshi
>>2824196>Sasuke tears out Sarada's eyes>Then tears out ours>We are his son now
>>2824197On top of this a battle analysis.The fight went WAY smoother than expected, did we pretty much preform the optimal strategy?
>>2824150Definitely, on the other hand anons did really well in going with taijutsu, using our speed advantage, and direct attacks over relying on genjutsu, it's a good thing we got more training in our physical skills after the exams all those threads back.
>>2824204Of course it went smooth we knew we couldn't fight with our normal strategies, and that's what she knew we could do
>>2824197Except for the people who already knew, most are simply shocked that you were capable of moving that fast. Many don't understand the strategic implications of it. >>2824199HahNOW YOU ARE SALAD>>2824204Yes, actually. Picking other options at other points would have led to something much messier>>2824205This is really what won you the fight.
You think Lee is gonna be ecstatic I once he learn we have been using weight to help us train and such?>>2824217I wanted ninja bullshit but not like this Mini, not lie this. Also I hope the hiatus won;t be too long because I really wanna see the gains we get from the time skip.
>>2824205>Expects squishy mezzer and poison specialist>Get smacked in the face by Melee dps dodge tank with AP and overcharge
>>2824236All the way back in thread 1 Takeshi wanted to be the best ninja around, and that means THE BEST.
>>2824096>I always support Sarada waifuMy nigga.Mini's return made me want to subject myself to Boruto anime to see just how things are now and damn Sarada's pretty good. She didn't even inherit Sakura's cuntiness, the amount of times she raises her voice are earned and the times she gets physical are zero, she's pretty chill actually, shame she dresses herself so badly.Just finished her parentage arc and I've gotta say, despite the "Who's her real mom" plot being clearly forced to span multiple episodes rather than five minutes of Sakura just telling her everything Sakura's still fucking terrible holy shit, from the moment she appeared in episode one of the original show right to the end of Shippuden, even in Boruto she's still unsalvageable, Sarada became quite endearing by the end and got some growth out of it, she's the best character right now, specially above the titular main character, plus she started wearing her top tier outfit.That fat Akimichi bitch tho, jesus, she's insufferably annoying in every scene she's in.
>>2824217>Expect Melee dps dodge tank with AP and overcharge>Get smacked in the face by a Boil jutsu specialist with heavy area denial, Armor ignore, and massive jutsu combos.I honestly expect us to get a nickname like "Chimera Ninja" or something stupid like that because of how radically quickly our style changes and mutates.
>>2824247Yup, over the course of part 1 you ground your way up to being damn near great if not just competent at everything. Congratulations
>>2824254Sakura's novel makes her even worse. She entrapped Sasuke like a true trailer trash child-support chaser. ChoCho wasn't so bad until she got a whole arc to herself. I guess they thought it would work for her like it worked for Hawawa.
>>2824256There is still grinding to be done, although I do worry about what will happen when we reach the peak of what we can do on our own through just training.
>>2824256Thanks, I couldn't have done it without weaponized anon autism, salt, and love for my waifu
>>2824273Puppets.Not even joking. We reach peak stats, we grind skills. ALL OF THEM.
>>2824254To be fair being better than a what basically amounts to a Xianxia protagonist in a shounen setting is not hard, at all.I was honestly hoping he'd say something shitty and we just give him the "Bring it, buttercup I got enough in the tank to do you to" look.>>2824256I expect us to get a lot more missions than other chunins due to skillset and Versatility. Got a spare slot on mission and not sure who to use or what you need, use TAkeshi he's decent damn near anywhere!About the only thing we are missing is Sensor abilities.>>2824272Rich spoiled Chuuni girl with delusions or competence is kinda bad, yeah.>>2824273Ask the owls, or get invasive on our self.I do wonder, given pedosnake is watching us, how much is he liking what he is seeing? We took down his super special eyes he lusted after in a hot Leaf minute.
>>2824293MAX ALL OF THE STATS< MASTER ALL OF THE JUSTSUSWE ARE THE UTILITARIAN
>>2824273We must grind training others so we can get better at training ourselves
>>2824272>Sakura's novel makes her even worse. She entrapped Sasuke like a true trailer trash child-support chaser.>mfw>ChoCho wasn't so badShe was painfully unfunny as the comic relief to be the lightheartedness to balance the serious topics Sarada's arc tackles or mentions, her entire reasoning and shtick is beyond shallow, she was the worst part of the arc, that's pretty bad.>until she got a whole arc to herselfOooh boy, what have I gotten myself into.
>>2824299>About the only thing we are missing is Sensor abilities.>One of the few things are big brother specializes inEVERYTHING'S COMING UP TAKESHI>>2824301Fuck stat-capping and min-maxing, utilitarian best mind-set.
>>2824293Puppets are shit. I haven't seen a puppetfag in a long, long time. Forever wouldn't be long enough though.>>2824299I don't remember her really grating on me, but I didn't even watch through all of Boruto. >>2824308The punchline to it all with thin Choji got a bit of a chuckle from me.
>>2824273That's why we're getting a sensei and we have a village of owl ninjas to learn from
>>2824299He really doesn't have a interest in us outside of us looking like someone else and being a clever dick sometimes, he is still way more interested in bloodline shit then us. Also I the owls thing, whilst they will be helpful don't expect anything tpo powerful unless we get int eh graces of the owl who knows forbidden jutsus.
>>2824313Fuck, I forgot Bro can hook us up with that sweet sweet sensor skills too. >>2824321We already met him., the owls all like us. Also keep in mind they are a either 40-60 or 60-40 mix of So good it was banned or forgotten due to secrecy/ old outdated shit jutsus.They don't HAVE Forbidden ones, too old for that.
>>2824321Is Orochimaru's still up to his old tricks in this quest, I don't remember, it's funny that out of both Naruto and Sasuke, Orochimaru turned out to be the better parent>He uses ara~ in his speech tooJust terrific.
>>2824340We literally got shanghai'd by him one night
>>2824340He's still horribly evil in quest.
Orochimaru would be best teacher for Takeshi.
>>2824359Except he'd use Takeshi as a lab rat, and our little ordinary boy is not fly on that.
Is this thread over now?
>>2824380Yes, we'll begin finishing things up next week.
>>2824383>All of your friends and enemies can be heard, cheering and jeering your name.We have enemies?Who?I thought most people were at most, neutral towards us.
>>2824315Not a puppetfag, just trying to make a point. That point being that there will always be something to grind. ALWAYS.
>>2824383So should we archive this or?
>>2824388Rivals would have been a better word.THOUGH MAYBE- nah no enemies are present lol
>>2824388Bort. Maybe Yasu.Loads and loads of rivals.>>2824389Get good at Sensor shit then. Clone spam can actually fuck us up if we don't poison and genjutsu them first.
>>2824393At least we don;t have anyone who has a crush on Takeshi here, not sure how the anons would react to that.
>>2824393Hey minmin what happens when we reach 5.0 in speed? Would taking the weights off bump us to 6.0 for three posts then drop to 5.5 or what?
>>2824403Ignore Bitches, get gainz and puberty.
>>2824395I think he means when we have done that as well, what do we do when we trained up sensory and such. What can we do once we have got as good as we possibly can at something but move onto and train something else.
>>2824403H-hah, yeah, no one has a crush on him>>2824408I'm going to be rejiggering the stats actually. Part of the idea with them is that they're meant to represent the abilities of your peer group. Genins and Chunin in this case.When the next quest starts, you'll be much stronger, but your stats will "reset" in a sense, because of your peers also getting stronger.
C'mon Mini. Give us the charops we want!!! srsly tho, no need, but I would like to know what specific characters (Naruto, Boruto, Sasuke, Ai, etc.) actually felt.
>>2824395I'd rather have sensor shit *before* we max our stats, Mrs. The Point.>>2824413Yeah that.
>>2824415>H-hah, yeah, no one has a crush on himWith that pic it's either Kichiro, Bort, AI, Mari or Sarada. >>2824413In that case do what Most greats do, make it completely impossible to what we have mastered and then somehow do it again.
>>2824415Mini no, no crushes on the most oblivious guy in the village. Although it would be funny to find out there was someone who has had a crush and stalked us and we never noticed cause we were to busy getting gud.
>>2824394>>2824395>>2824396Yeah I was thinking Yasu, but like I said I just remember her more as a neutral party. Bort was of course cheering for Sarada like a good teammate, and Mistu or whatever the snake boys name was.Other than those three I can't think of anyone else that would actively cheer against us.Unless they were betting against us like SauskeOne would think they'd know better by now.
>>2824420Watch it be one of the OCs know one remembers and we have barley talked to.
>>2824429Most of them we've met a few times and I've not gotten that vibe from them.
>>2824429Could be worse, could be one of the powerful ones like the snow princess.
>>2824416Naruto was pumped as hell. He was kind of worried when you got hit, but you relieved that right away by using your speed to it's fullest. Then he was practically screaming as you disabled her.Boruto was thinking that Sarada had it in the bag, but then you took off your training weights. Sasuke was curious what you were going to whip out that caused Naruto to put so much faith in you. He's still curious though, as he thinks that speed alone isn't what caused you to garner interest. You've impressed him and left him wondering what you're actually likeAi just smiled and watched. She imagined what she would be doing in Sarada's place, and is unsure if she could beat you
>>2824447As always Ai best girl.
>>2824453Too bad people want to put Autism-chan in the friendzone.
>>2824447What was Shikadai’s take? He’d be one of the few thinking deeper on this.I assume Kichiro was just cheering like a madman because we were going full punch until the end?
>>2824403>>2824415>>2824420>>2824421>>2824429We might not have had girls crushing on us before, but we probably do now after we beat the prodigy Uchiha child, if not from the Uchiha herself.>Sarada acts tsun.>Says she "hates" us, but doesn't mind our presence or our help.>This fight and display only cements ourselves in Salad's mind, on top of everything else we've done with her.>Flip into maximum "shadowrun">months of this with the excuse that she's gotta show us up, but never thinking on the why.>One day during dinner Sakura playfully jokes about how it's cute she's working so hard to get her crush to notice her.>Thoughts of how cool we are working hard to get gud flood her mind>Heart goes dokidoki when she recalls our spar and how we showed our softer side healing her.>Gets angry remembering we also touched her when applying that sweet soothing salve... T-The perv!>Sarada's face when it all clicks in place
>>2824458Correct on Kichiro.Shikadai was thinking about how far you had really come. He feels like he wouldn't stand a chance against you now, despite coming to a draw with him originally in your spar. He understood how far strategically you've come, as well. Not only are you excellent at evading, but you've also got a full arsenal of offensive techniques to compliment it. Plus the mobility and Taijutsu to set things up/defend yourself as necessary. All of it backed by a seemingly unbreakable will.Shikadai wonders where the hell you get all of your motivation from
>>2824453I'd prefer her as a friend.>>2824457There are good reasons for that and you know it.>>2824390Still wondering about this.Also fuck you captcha, stop giving me the slow fadeaway ones
>>2824470>There are good reasons for that and you know itYeah. But what if Autism-chan is crushing on us?
>>2824470I'll get to archiving it if no one else does. I only have one request.Name the thread "Tossing Salad"
>>2824463Run Takeshi, run like the fucking wind.>>2824468Through pure autism.
>>2824468… Were Kakashi and Gai watching from the shadows?How Much did Nart win off sauce?
>>2824468What did Mari think?Is she the one who has the crush?
>>2824482It's Autism-chan anon.
>>2824474I mean I can not into archive.>>2824463Seriously tho if that does happen, even tho I don;t particularly care for sald I would still find it fun.
>>2824484So Mari?Honestly, I'm mainly thinking its her because of the date she and Takeshi went on and her reaction to it.
>>2824489Fuck, I wish it were Mari. But it's probably Ai.
The pic mini posted could be one of two people, the whole "nemesis" thing points to either Salad or Mari, they're the only ones who see us as maybe more than just a rival. We full on embarrassed Mari back in thread 1 and we just fullstopped Salad even though she's supposed to be our hard counter
>>2824463>Says she "hates" us, but doesn't mind our presence or our help.I mean what was she supposed to do, lay there in pain?And it's not like we got any points for lecturing her after kicking her ass.She's defiantly speaking hyperbolically, but I don't think there is any dere in her tone.We are rivals now that's for damn sure, we'll see if it develops into anything else later.
>>2824480Kakashi was watching, Gai was busy doing his daily 500 lap circuit around the village with his wheelchairFor Kakashi, things went pretty much just how he expected. He knew that the differences in your mentality would make or break the fight, and in the end it did. If not for your constant training, the speed boost would have never been possible.>>2824482She felt somewhat surprised, but also inspired. She feels like she's got to take her game to a whole new level if these are the kinds of developments that you've been making.Sasuke now has to buy Naruto ramen whenever he asks for it. If you had lost, Naruto would have had to pay for Sarada's birthday gifts until she's 18.
>>2824463>People throughout the whole village can hear someone screaming>Sarada faints into her soup>Sakura: "Aw, I remember my first crush.....well it was my only crush but you get the idea.>Sarada: *blurrp*>Sakura: "Don't play with your food sweetie">Takeshi, while on a mission, feels a chill down his spine for some reason
>>2824489What thread was that again by the way?
>>2824473Ai: I think I loveTakeshi: I see you more as a sister >violeny rampage ensues
>>2824499That's not what I'm referring to.That's not the only instance she's told us she hates us anon and we've helped her improve her medical jutsu just as she's helped us.Every time before this fight we've been with her she talks like we're a pain in her ass, yet she does more than just tolerant our presence, if that isn't tsun, don't know what is.
>>2824513I doubt she will confess, also it;s not necessarily wrong to reject a confession even if you have a good relationship already with the person.
>>2824503>Gai was busy doing his daily 500 lap circuit around the village with his wheelchairThat honestly seems more like fun than training. Still exhausting, so not surprised.Now for the real question, what does [spoiler[Orochimaru[/spoiler] think?>>2824510Started in 53(Not 52 which was falsly archived as 53) and I think it ran into 54.
>>2824499Nah anon is right, it's not the first time she's like this. I don't think it's a crush or romantic, just more she likes hanging out with takeshi even if she doesn't want to admit it, plus she can't help but be interested in him, what with being an anomaly. If he wasn't rival status before though, he definitely is now that's for sure.>>2824503>Gai didn't see the fightWhy even bother
Ai, Mari, and Sarada are the only realistic options in the running for the Takeshib owl.pick a side anons
>>2824519It's just meant to make me chuckle anon, take it with a grain of salt
>>2824527Mari. Sorry Autism-chan.
>>2824503>Sasuke now has to buy Naruto ramen whenever he asks for it.Welp Sauce is going to be broke.>If you had lost, Naruto would have had to pay for Sarada's birthday gifts until she's 18.Pretty sure the fact she's getting a birthday present from her "dad" at all would be a tip off someone else is doing it.how happy will Shizune be that we used what she taught us to body Sarada?>>2824527I am of the "Wait until the Mc's balls drop before thinking about it" viewpoint.
>>2824527>AiShikidai has a better chance
so who are we going with during the time skip?sasuke has Boruto, Ai, and Sarada going with himNaruto has Mari, Himawari, and Kichirowhoever we go with, snake boy goes with the otherI think Sasuke is more in line with our abilities honesty and I dont want Sarada and Ai to be alone with Bort
>>2824539I thought Sarada was going with Naruto
>>2824539I thought Sarada was going with Naruto?
>>2824539Pretty sure Sarada is going with NarutoAlso I KNOW yasu is going with sauce.MINi who's going with whom again?
>>2824539Whilst it does look like that we shall see the exact benefits once we get to the choice. Right now I am leaning towards Sasuke but you never know what is gonna come up.
>>2824539I thought Sarada was going with Naruto?anyway, Sauce is probably the best choice. Naruto's style probably has big chakra costs.>>2824537>>2824533She's a distant 3rd but she's got a lot better chance than Yasu and those other girls I can't remember the name of.
>>2824503>Sasuke now has to buy Naruto ramen whenever he asks for it. If you had lost, Naruto would have had to pay for Sarada's birthday gifts until she's 18.Yo bro.These are some high risk bets.Legendary ninja don't fuck around.>>2824518>>2824525Hm. Hope for the best I guess.>>2824527SaradaI'm also hoping for Dark Horse OC to come in and steal the show though. We'll see.>>2824539Sasuke is the best option for us.Skill over PowerWorld Exploration over Staying around the VillageDirect contact with the Owls over Getting taught Sage Mode by Naruto
>>2824547>>2824547>>2824548>>2824550Oh, I'm switching up who goes where because I realized I made some dumb decisions the previous time I did that. It's like this nowNaruto: Mari, Himawari, KichiroSasuke: Ai, Sarada, Borutoand Mitsuki will go in the place of whoever you don't go with
>>2824557Darn no Sarada learning from Naruto. That would have been good.
>>2824503>Gai was busy doing his daily 500 lap circuit around the village with his wheelchairhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJ0xBCwkg3E
>>2824557Surprised Mari is going with Naruto given she's a weapon master and fist technician, and Naruto is mostly about spamming shit.Also that could make One teacher have an entire team +1
>>2824556We do however get the opportunity to learn from all the other masters in Konoha if we can convince them.Honestly, I wish there was an option where we can double down on Boil release. I feel like we could get the most research and testing done on that in a static location.
>>2824566Entire team +1? what do you mean?
>>2824570One would think the toads would give us a bonus to that.
>>2824572I think he's talking about how if we go with Nalt than Snekboy goes with Sause, and Ai is the hangar on for Team 7's globe-trotting adventures.
>>2824572Assuming we do not pick SauceSauce gets all of team seven with AI being the hanger on.
>>2824580Ah I see, that's true
>>2824556>SaradaMy negro>skill over powerNot necessarily, Naruto showed pretty creative thinking before the show went full shonen fight spam later on. I see it as more Sasuke being able to teach us more jutsu, while Naruto won't have as many to teach but will be better for improving what we have further, including our progress into sage mode. So yeah power, just not in the sense most people think.
>>2824572I think he meant teams are usually 1 mentor 3 students, but this set up will be 1 mentor 4 students. So a conventional team +1
>>2824565That picture is a 10
>>2824594Shame I couldn't find a bigger resolution of it
>>2824597You couldn't find it because your hatred was strong enough
>>2824570I'm sure we will be able to put time into Boil Release no matter who we pick.Although, given that Sauce is overall more Skilled at jutsu in general i'd think he'd be able to help us out more. >>2824587>Not necessarilyMini literally said so himself, but I see where you're coming from.In my head the more jutsu we have, the greater amount of trick we'll be able to pull off. Sure we could make 50 water clones instead of two, but why do that when we have a new trick better fit for the situation.
>>2824604That's just a rescale bruh, between having a cleaner looking picture and an extra 100x100, i'd rather keep the one I got
I would say why we don't pick Kakashi as our sensei. But then i remember how well he trained his students...
>>2824632Plus he just wants to chill. He's retired as shit. The only person he spars anymore is Gai
>>2824639Sounds like someone he would have a leg up on.
>>2824642You haven't lived until you've seen a wheelchair bound man capoeira kick someone in the head
>>2824639Has Gai ever considered getting a prosthetic leg? The technology is readily available IIRC
>>2824659Probably not. As much as he trains I doubt he ever actually fights anyone anymore.What's he gonna do with it, run missions? Naw, he probably sees the wheelchair as just another self-inflicted challenge or something.
>>2824659It's certainly possible
>>2824659I mean isn't naruto's arm a vat grown one, then again it probably isn't just his legs, releasing all eight gates probably fucked up his body in more ways then we can count.
>>2824672>I mean isn't naruto's arm a vat grown oneInitially it was, but he had the Leaf's scientists make him a new mechanical prosthesis that could absorb jutsus after the fight with Momoshiki
>>2824659>Healing Jutsu is practically magic>Vat grown humans exist. Jutsu to switch bodies with people exist, which is how Orochimaru manages to live and survive so much shit.>Hashirama cells, the cure all for most plotholes that don't involve Kakashi>Nardo loses an arm. Nah it's okay senpai let's get Tsunade on that shit, you'll be fine next episode.>Nardo also reaches Jesus status with amazing ability to heal eyes in people.>But oh no Gai can't feel his legs. Tough shit, wheelchair bound for the rest of his life
>>2823531>As she fires her right straight, you duck down under it and bring your left hand over top, the momentum crashing together and flipping Sarada's feet out from under her. Her back and head slam into the ground.I see what we did there, Mini.Give that bitch a Jolt Counter. Bitches hate the Jolt Counter.>>2824196>This is why I'm never nice. This happens.Was that...?Did Sasuke just make a joke?When did he grow a sense of humor?>>2824421>implying Mari doesn't have an adorably awkward as yet unrecognized crush on Takeshi>>2824495Could be a joke about Bort having a big gay mancrush on us like Nalt had on Sausage when they were kids.>>2824503>Gai was busy doing his daily 500 lap circuit around the village with his wheelchairY'know now I can't help but picture Gai setting up some sort of support system for other Ninja who've been permanently disabled in the line of duty. Help them figure out things they can still do to feel useful, not just sit around drinking and feeling sorry for themselves.>>2824527Mari a best.She, more than any other girl, made Takeshi the ninja he is today. She made him stop dicking around, and lit the fire under his ass to be something more.Salad taught us some neat tricks, but that first spar with Mari completely changed our world view.>>2824642>implying Gai isn't spending all his time developing an entire wheelchair martial art>implying he won't completely slap some wannabe villain's shit with it after the timeskipThis is a man who kicked MADARA's ass, only to be robbed of his victory by bullshit. He SURVIVED opening all Eight Gates. You think not having full use of his legs will in any way stop him from kicking ass? I give it a single generation after his eventual death (which will happen in his sleep because Death doesn't want to risk the ass kicking) before he becomes a memetic god. Like, the ninja equivalent of Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee combined.
>>2824681>When did he grow a sense of humor?Had to do something to compensate for that stump he's got
>>2824681Almost, anon! Miyata's jolt counter is done with a right hand though. You ducked to the right and countered with a left straight
>>2824680I think you're underestimating the amount of radical damage the Eight Gates Released Formation does to someone's body. >>2824681It's a pun you dip.
>>2824684How far off is Takeshi from making Special Jonin or Jonin?
>>2824689Special Jounin is a weird case because it's more reserved for people who are super good at ONE area. You're not that at all. It'd be easier for you to shoot for Jonin than special. Even still, a number of years. You have an advantage in having the proper mindset, however.In terms of mentality you're already there.
>>2824690They don't really do early promotions anymore do they?
>>2824690What about when we near the end of the quest and Takeshi is a master at nearly everything a normal ninja can be at?
>>2824692Nah>>2824693That's a difficult question to answer.Circumstances might delay something like that
>>2824688I think you underestimate Tsunade's medical prowess.There really isn't any reason why, out of all the people that got put through the wringer, Gai was the only one with lasting disability.The only reason why he's in a wheelchair is by choice, and by Kishimoto shenanigans like what happened to Neji
>>2824688I got the pun, I just seriously doubt Gai would be able to resist developing a wheelchair martial art, even if only as a form of exercise initially. A way to keep from going soggy 'round the midsection.
>>2824703No, you really don't get the ramifications of the Eight Gates. Burning out all of the chakra in your body, then ramming your legs into something with such force that space itself is rent by your power, it's going to destroy any sort of internal infrastructure which carries or accepts chakra. He would probably have to cripple himself even more to regain use of his leg in any meaningful way.
>>2824697I mean we know something is gonna happen, but the biggest clue you've give us was that random drug trip about the times of day that never really went anywhere in the past arc.
>>2824711Ohh some of that stuff has already played out. Plus some of it got cut off.That wasn't about part 2. Everything that's going to happen in part 2 has been foreshadowed to an extent, and it's funny because people still seem to have no idea. Although it's everywhere.
>>2824727War starting up again.The Mist ahs to go to war to keep from falling apart, the stone being petty close minded fucksticks go to war because other nations are more prosperous, Nyoko's Home goes to war because it's now an industrial super power in the north and need to expand to grow and keep up with food. The Instability Shizoku brought up plus the fact some of the old baddies still persist put together with the fact everyone's is burning through resources like no tomorrow means someone who doesn't have all the great shit is going to start a new world war, and everyone else will take advantage of it.
>>2824727Care to explain it then? I mean we are pretty much done with part 1 so it would be nice to know the fuck was going on there. As for part 2, it;s not gonna suddenly start by everything getting fuck over is it?
>>2824735Something like that, yeah. There's more to it than that, but I can't expect you to know the exact circumstances. There's more meaningful hints everywhere, though.>>2824739That was essentially going to be a large plotline meant to be reminiscent of the forest of death in tone. A full 24 hours of fighting, a few bosses, ect. But then I realized "shit this thing is already long as FUCK" Part 2 won't start that way, no.
>>2824735Yeah I really don't like our odds of survival even with all the training we are gonna get. Need something else like some new tech or something.
>>2824752You mean Boil Release?The technique that essentially gives us the power of chemistry.Seriously, a few threads back someone compiled a shit ton of ideas for techniques, most being soap related.I'm not exaggerating when I say that that has the most potential for further development.
>>2824710>internal infrastructure which carries or accepts chakraDude, that's absolute rubbish, this is a world where you can be split in half head to toe and be fine.I understand the eight gate squeezes every last drop of chakra out of you and pushes every part of your body and organs beyond the limit and into the realm of insanity such that people are supposed to be literally cooked from the inside out when using and the only reason Gai even survived what was a literal suicide technique was because of Naruto's Jesus powers.But this infrastructure thing is beyond ridiculous conjecture.I understand bone being broken and fragmented throughout the legs to such an extent that even "Ninja Art Creation Rebirth Strength of a Hundred" wouldn't be able to fix properly, but that's why there's vat grown limbs.If Naruto can lose an arm and have another one grafted onto him without having the lost arm's destroyed "infrastructure which carries or accepts chakra" prevent him from using it, why can't they replace Gai's legs or even entire lower body.The answer can only be that Gai doesn't want to
>>2824752You're very nervous anon. You made it this far though, I'm sure you can make it to the end of part 2!Granted, it won't be easy. But if it was it wouldn't be fun.>>2824760>That's rubbishThis made me laugh, because it's totally true. Chakra is magic. Kishi really, really, really try to play it off like it isn't but it totes is.
>>2824764I am nervous because our over all potential isn't that high, I mean once we hit sage mode that;s it for us in terms of overall strength. Skill is one thing but when there are guys spamming fireballs bigger than a mountain what exactly are we suppose to do.
>>2824764>Chakra is magicOf course it is, Naruto started off as story about wizards or some shit and the author just switched to ninjas later. Chakra and jutsu are literally just mana and spells with a fresh coat of paint, you just don't initially realize this because early naruto at least tries to stick creative, sneaky uses of jutsu before just giving up and going full explosion battle death matches.
>>2824708>realizes it's a joke yet takes it seriously anywayWell that just makes you an even bigger dip, ya dip
>>2824778Early Naruto is essentially sneaky Jojo with kids and no standsBecause people generally have one schtick that they work with and use really good, at that stage.
>>2824784Which was generally how ninjas work. Having a varied loadout is fine, but it seems likely having a small, mastered set of skills is what will see you through. I think most would agree start to the end of chunin exams is jojo, while shippuden and up feels much closer to something like DBZ
>>2824774Not to mention everyone else it gonna have a power up. Imagine having to fight snow princess with a sage mode of her own, how do we even win that sort of fight.
>>2824789Naruto got killed by a bad case of shonen powercreep cancer.I'd even go as far as say it started going bad during the tail end of the chunin exams, when Naruto started gaining control of the nine tails chakra and learned summoning that culminated in a fucking Kaiju battle between a sand monster and a giant toad, at that point the powerlevel that had been built in the Zabuza arc and cemented all the way to before Sasuke's fight with Gaara was completely shattered.At that point shit had to escalate to keep being a threat and it was all downhill from there, Shippuden was the natural progression of that tumor
>>2824802I've been aiming to rectify this somewhat by keeping things super dangerous regardless of what is happening. In reality most of these dudes don't have any armor or anything, so a well set up senbon can be just as deadly as a fuck off nuke. Even the Jinchuriki can be stopped if you get them before they can access their abilities. However, I know it's going to be difficult to avoid the mass amounts of nonsense that's about to start happening, simply from the elevation in powerlevels in general. >>2824796This anon makes a good point. EVERYONE go up
>>2824802>I'd even go as far as say it started going bad during the tail end of the chunin exams,That seems to be the general consensus actually>when Naruto started gaining control of the nine tails chakra and learned summoning that culminated in a fucking Kaiju battle between a sand monster and a giant toad, at that point the powerlevel that had been built in the Zabuza arc and cemented all the way to before Sasuke's fight with Gaara was completely shattered.See I think it would've been okay if that fight had been a preview of what top tier was, but it just kept getting higher and more broken as it progressed.
>>2824796By getting better, simple as that. So we don't have chock full or chakra to spam with, so what? creativity, willpower, and tactics will beat out raw power any day. Not to mention that some of the strongest ninja in the setting didn't have bloodline bullshit. The 4th, Jiraya, Kakashi even without gis sharingan was insanely strong, Dai and Gai, fucking Hanzo who fought the three seinen to a fucking standstill and epitomized what it meant to be a ninja. It'll be tough but a defeatist attitude helps no one.
>>2824813I assume you meant give up, my point is that you story is gonna start reeking of bullshit at points ( not that it's hasn't already). Tell me oh great qm why this normal as fuck guy who knows some fancy tricks manged to beat up the guy who could level a mountains with about as much effort he as when sneezes. There is no way you can justify it without plot armour.
>>2824829I actually did mean go up. As in powerlevels rising. As for the second part, you'll just have to wait and see. I have some ideas for how things could work out. So far I'd say the most bullshit thing that's happened has been your sudden acquisition of Boil release and also being pretty good at Fire. Normally those things are way harder, granted it's more common now what with all the super geniuses around.
>>2824829>Tell me oh great qm why this normal as fuck guy who knows some fancy tricks manged to beat up the guy who could level a mountains with about as much effort he as when sneezes. There is no way you can justify it without plot armour.You do realize Takeshi will get stronger too right? Just because he doesn't have bloodline techniques doesn't mean he can't reach bullshit levels of power. The third and fourth both did.
>>2824814>See I think it would've been okay if that fight had been a preview of what top tier wasProblem with that was that the two characters displaying this top tier were genin, one of which was the underdog dead last main character, and it was still too early in the manga.That should have been end game shit. The highest point of the manga as far as displays of absolute raw power went but it was done around chapter 130 of a 700 chapter manga.All things considered, despite the powercreep, a lot of fights in shippuden are some of the best: the motion, style and choreography and focus on hand to hand while mixing displays of power is leagues beyond Dragon Ball, it also carries onto Boruto.
>>2824843Those guys aren;t in teh brotuo time period are they? Most of these kids will be more bullshit then them, it's not a matter of just being strong, it's being strong enough for our victories to make any sense. I like a under dog story but eventually there has to come a point where the under dog stops being the underdog for his wins to make sense. As much as it makes my insides churn to compliment the fucker, even that fuck on SB thudnerscourge mange to acknowledge this with his stupid digimon quest.
>>2824855There's a significant amount of bullshit in any fiction, really. It's all about the illusion of keeping it behind the veil, out of your train of thought. It's the kansas city hustle that makes it work
>>2824849>leagues beyond Dragon BallUnpopular opinion time, that's not a high bar.Dragon Ball was at its best when it was a comedy manga with a martial arts theme.But then you get to Z and every single conflict comes down to characters making their number arbitrarily bigger, even though the feats we actually see them accomplishing aren't any more impressive than Roshi blowing up the moon way back in the very first tournament arc.Dragon Ball gets an undeserved free pass for a lot of bullshit due to it having a place in the collective childhoods of the average anime fan. But in reality, it is patient zero for a LOT of the bullshit that shonen series suffer from.
>>2824863But there becomes a certain amount of bullshit before people call it out and refuse to read. Sure we can get strong and plan to beat these guys but when they are strong enough that you have no real way of saying why they can;t get out of our trap or even fell into it first place. I expect some of these kids to reach Madara levels at some point and I can not think of a single justifiable way that our genjutsu,taijutsu and ninjutsu will gonna work on them.
>>2824867I only mentioned Dragon Ball because it was mentioned here >>2824789 the post I started responding to.Point is, despite the fact the powerlevels reached some dragon ball tier spamming of earth shattering jutsus and abilities in Naruto, it still displays some pretty good, more down to earth (As much down to earth you can get fighting on water or walls) martial arts and there isn't a bunch of shots of characters repeating flurries of kicks and punches in mid air that can barely be seen followed by the old "teleports behind you" shtick everywhere.Posting the rest of the fight because why not, though this is when shit starts getting jank with the powers.
>>2824879I like out the fight ended with Sakura doing the old paper bomb twist.
>>2824873Which Madara do you mean? Because I can certifiably say no one is going to get stronger than Naruto or Sasuke as they are right nowand Naruto and Sasuke back then was actually their prime, power wise, and it took both of them to beat Madara. So it won't be QUITE that insane
>>2824873When we first started, Bort and Salad were completely capable of obliterating us off the face of the Earth. Yet here we are, with us having beat Bort to become a Chunin, and now we just defeated Salad, who was basically as hard of a counter as we were gonna get.If your saying that we should just give up now since we'll never beat them, than this quest should have ended on the first thread.
>>2824884First time reanimated Madara, the version where he was still putting up a good fight against the 5 Kage.
>>2824889Meh, sounds doable
>>2824894Not fucking really, all those five fucks had some bullshit about them. Even the weaker ones like the water one had some think like two combination releases and absurd amount of fucking Chakra you wouldn't find in someone like Takeshi.
>>2824902She actually had Boil release, which you have. At 13Her other thing was Lava I believe?
>>2824880>>2824879>>2824849>Sakura actually got to do somethingWHY IS SHE FUCKING SHACKLED TO SASUKE HOLY SHIT
>>2824911It also took Gara, the black lighting guy,Tsunade who is part senju, and the old guy with laser and they still fucking lost. I don't see Takeshi on his own or even with two teammates fighting anything like that and living.
>>2824918Quit being such a negative nelly, everything'll come up takeshi
>>2824918Hold it right there mister, this is Naruto: Sakura can't take the spotlight for long before the Kishimoto curse pulls her back to useless status. That was just the part of the fight were she gets to shine before jobbing and needing to be saved.And better question would be "why are Sasuke and Sakura a thing?" they have absolutely no chemistry or act remotely like a couple, Sasuke doesn't even give her the kiss she clearly wanted before leaving back to his months long job of being a vagrant, Sakura might as well have switched places with Karin
>>2824939Sakura's life goal was to ride Sasuke's baloney pony.after FINALLY chilling out, Sasuke needed to get crackin' on the clan revival and Sakura was probably the girl he knew best.
>>2824943>after FINALLY chilling out, Sasuke needed to get crackin' on the clan revivalHow can having a single girl be called even an attempt at a clan revival? At least if he had a boy that boy could go on to impregnate a bunch of women years later and produce multiple uchiha in a single year, a girl can only normally get 2 kids at best and then have to rest.Sauce had another perfectly submissive cutie ready to jump his bones too, an Uzumaki to boot
I think Sausage might be gay.His "relationship" with Sakura and the child he produced are nothing but a front to hide his uncontrollable homolust.I mean, no wonder Sarada thought Sakura wasn't her real mom when the guy acts like this.How Chichi manage to get Goku to reproduce is a mystery for the obvious reason that Goku's a dense retard that was dropped on his head as a baby and lusts only for battle, but Sasuke and Sakura are something else entirely.
>>2824953>Implying that ogre of a woman would let her trophy hubbie look at another girl.I'd be an absent Dad too if I was married to herChichi probably tricked Goku into thinking sex was some kind of squatting exercise.
>>2824969>Goku's a dense retard that was dropped on his head as a baby and lusts only for battleWhy the fuck does everybody forget the first few episodes of Z as well as the 4 years inbetween DB and Z that Goku was a stay-at-dad?Goku only ended up being a complete and total autist around the Buu Saga, and even then he was happy to be around his family when he could be.Super Goku is prime autist tho, fuck Toyotaro and Toei
I just realized, a pretty simple upgrade with be steel toed boots with maybe some little spikes for penetration, and maybr some steel elbow and knee pads. They would definitely add some extra damage in a melee.
>>2825194I'm still waiting on porcupine senbon myself.
I just realized why caltrops are so strong. For some reason, everyone wears sandals in this universe.
>>2825248It's purely because the author liked drawing their feet, you can't make this shit up.
>>2824937AND WHILE I'M BITCHING ABOUT DRAGON BALL, let's talk about Krillin and 18. I like the idea of them as a couple, and Super's one redeeming feature in my eyes is giving them some actual interactions and chemistry. But originally? They just kinda get together offscreen.And why in the blue hell, of she just wants a normal life, does she still go by A FUCKING NUMBER?! Much less the number designation given to her by the crazy sonuvabitch that wanted to turn her into a mindless killing machine?!>>2824976>Chichi probably tricked Goku into thinking sex was some kind of squatting exercise.And then there's this shit right here.In early Dragon Ball, when it was still a comedy, Goku was just a bumpkin. He wasn't STUPID, he was NAIVE.But then he just gets dumber, and dumber, and then Super goes and makes him LITERALLY FUCKING RETARDED and declares that he has NEVER KISSED HIS WIFE.>>2825268Welp, guess we need Tarantino to direct the shitty hollywood movie version.
>>2825274>In early Dragon Ball, when it was still a comedy, Goku was just a bumpkin. He wasn't STUPID, he was NAIVE.>But then he just gets dumber, and dumber, and then Super goes and makes him LITERALLY FUCKING RETARDED and declares that he has NEVER KISSED HIS WIFE.That's actually one thing I like about the super manga over the anime, well I prefer tge manga over the anime in general but that's a whole other thing, Goku is less retarded and a bit snarky. In the anime he talks about how he's never kissed his wife, in the manga he and vegeta talk about how they actually kind of like how aggressive their wives are. It's just the little differences that make the different versions of goku feel completely different. One is a complete retard, the other comes off as naive but more aware of things then people realize, like when he clearly disapproves of gohan giving uo his training to focus on his studies but doesn't outright say it.
>>2825274>>2825289he was always stupid (he thought marriage was a kind of food) Super they just dialed it up to 11 and tore the knob off.
>>2825760>he thought marriage was a kind of foodHe was NINE at the time, and grew up in the woods with his grandpa.That's NAIVE, not stupid.By the time they actually got married, he was well aware that it wasn't food.
>>2825820Wasn't he 12 when the original Dragon Ball happened?He was retarded, high functioning, but still retarded, canonically dropped on the head as a baby which put his IQ squarely on room temperature level.I can agree that living alone on the mountains didn't do him any favors since he didn't even know how to count properly until his first tournament, but having to pat down people's crotches to see if they were a man or woman isn't very bright at all, and rather than asking what the word marriage means he chose instead to equate it with food immediately.That boy just ain't right.>By the time they actually got married, he was well aware that it wasn't food.>pic relatedThis isn't being naive it's being stupid
Does anyone know what thread it was that had all the potential weapons in it? If I recall there was a good few ideas in there that we could still use.
>>2825274>>2825289Maybe he never had to kiss Chichi because she always kissed him first? I think there might be a distinction there where "I never kissed her" /= "we've never kissed."But then I haven't seen super yet.

>Takeshi's theme musichttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Z1rFzxPIz8
>>2826976>>2826997>>2827038Honestly I always liked the song that played at the end of the chunin exams as Takeshi's theme.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTbB703XZFM
>>2826976>>2826997>>2827038I think something that starts out smoother, quieter, and less in your face that slowly builds up into something loud and strong, something you can't ignore would work
>>2827523>>2827523That's an incrediably strange way of describing a song but I've still got you senpaihttps://youtu.be/IJwlN6Rai2U
>>2827523>>2827523>I think something that starts out smoother, quieter, and less in your face that slowly builds up into something loud and strongI gotchu senpai.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8gmbWKXY_MAlso, stumbled upon this so I'mma post it too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxs6xcmdpdUGotta keep that Japanese flavor to fit the source, even though Shippuden and Boruto mostly did away with the blend of modern mixed with traditional Japanese style like the original show.
>>2827625I mean if we want a blend of traditional and modern instrumentation, there's always the best version of Best Girl's theme.https://youtu.be/sBUWLMbuTgoRokumon is good, but Momentary Life is the superior iteration of Baiken's theme.
>>2828736Archived since no one else would do it.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/2811197/
>>2826976https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OvpzForHyUI still remember the moment when this played in quest, and It stuck with me hard.
>>2824415>nemesisThat random mecha midget he de-eyed at some point
>>2829500Nah she was cool about it later. Robot eye and all that jazz
Hey, just read this quest from the archives. And holy fuck, those half-year breaks are really something. What are the chances QM sticks around for good this time?
>>2830405He'll be good, but thing is the first half of the quest will end in another thread, then he'll do a short quest in between. So it'll be a while till we get to boruto shippuden era
>>2830534>a whileMother fucker try being a fan of his Devil May Cry Quest.Luckily I'm also a fan of Berserk, Devil May Cry, Full Metal Panic, and Guilty Gear.I have the patience of an Ent.
Reminder of who best girl really is cakes are always best
>>2831215I mean, by the end of timeskip she's gonna be what, 40? No thanks, man.
>>2831215>>2831258She was 31 in part 2 of the original, there's -at least- 15 years on top of that from Shippuden's progression, The Last and the "Blank" period. Now add how much years QM's timeskip will have.I'd say even as a cake, she's beyond passed her expiration date
Ignore subpar options, aquire qt
>>2825760>he thought marriage was a kind of foodhttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=McAeQiLmEYUOh look it's this old lie.The Japanese term that Chi-Chi used to refer to engagement, "konn'yaku", sounds very similar to the name of a type of edible tuber, Konjac.Goku didn't think marriage was food, he just misheard her.
