Shinobi Quest #47This quest takes place within the lands of the Five Great Shinobi Nations (aka Narutoverse) starting roughly around the beginning of the original series. The world of this quest remains similar to the original, with slight but notable differences in certain areas, based upon the passage of time from a single slightly altered event. (It’s a goddamn Naruto Quest, you bastards. Have fun, participate, and write in when you feel inclined. Most of the outcomes of this quest will be determined by you, the players. Critiques and questions are always welcome, as my knowledge of the weeby shit is not all encompassing.)http://pastebin.com/WiPdCqLHPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Shinobi%20QuestLast thread, Tsuki Norihime and her party defended the Norihime family manor to the best of their ability, utilizing the traps and mechanisms within to deter the Akatsuki, dealing as much damage as possible while minimizing their own losses. With the Takigakure Genin Kegon sacrificing himself to hold the Akatsuki off initially, the inevitable conflict followed the party all the way to the roof of the Norihime household. Once there, however, Yoru revealed he had another surprise up his sleeve….
>>725776Time for Yoru's moment in the limelight.Shame that Wargle's heavily implied it will crash and burn
Wew lads, did anyone else see those debates?Fuckin' hell, i just want to see them get into a straight up fistfight on live tv at this point.
>>725791I'm surprised there hasn't been more fighting or any assassination attempts at all considering the level of vitriol and anger throughout the country.Glad people aren't getting hurt, but it's just a little surprising.
>>725791Unless your talking about Pain's debate with Minato over which beloved character is going to die tragically off screen I don't fuckin care.
>>725802I'm expecting election day to be a fucking bloodbath.
>>725806I'm both excited and afraid.
>>725791I could not feel less for the state of our politics.
>>725804Good for you, faggot.
>>725810Politics get out.
>>725776Yes I caught a live thread! Hype thrusters engage!
>>725802>Any assassination attempts at allYou do remember that time a random neoliberal tried to rush the stage and attack Trump?He failed hard though, so it's not surprising if you forgot or missed it.
>>725776Forgot the new "official" image? Don't worry I got your back!
So I have no Idea where I found this but it seems pretty appropriate for this thread
>>725810Dude this thread's about ninjas, go to fuckin /pol/ if you want to make a politcal deadpool. This thread is for people to watch child solider ninjas murder each other.
>>725827I prefer this one
>>725791when are they going to reveal the real candidates?the joke isn't funny anymore
>>725837Dude I am saving the fuck out of that gif.
This massive mechanical weapon- the Automated Strategic Artillery. The bipedal machine is easily three or four times your height, and the roof sighs under it’s height.You smile, despite everything going on around you-He named it after Mother.Deidara seems aggravated by this development, though Sasori is unfazed, per the norm.“Industrial art is hideous!” The blonde boy howls. “Art is beautiful, but simple- dynamic in its complexities, but never staying around to be fully appreciated by the unwashed masses! Yoru Norihime! Art- Art is an explosion! I’ll prove that to you here and now!”Yoru, in response, fires up the guns on the ASA. There is a loud whining as the barrels begin to spin- and after a few moments, senbon are raining on the two Akatsuki members, who dodge to the sides to avoid the onslaught.All the while, even more puppets begin to rise along the outside perimeter of the roof- it seems escape is… unlikely.“My dear daughter, I suggest you and your friends come up with a plan of attack- I’m not sure if this unfinished weapon will hold them off for long!” Yoru’s voice calls from inside the mechanical juggernaut. He’s right- you need to make a stand.
>>725853I was never big into Jojo so maybe someone else can do it
>>725865You thought it was the Automated Strategic Artillery but it was I, DIO!
Everyone is here with you- you simply need to make a choice.1. Order everyone to attack separately!2. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!3. Order everyone to protect the ASA!
>>725909>3. Order everyone to protect the ASA!
>>725853Better kill deidara in one shot before he has a chance to set off C0 or some crazy shit and kills us all.Sasori is bad, but in the end it's just puppets and poison.Deidara is the real threat, and he's on his last legs.
>>725909>>2. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!
Goodbye dad. It was nice knowing you. Don't worry in your place Tsuki will build that airship and with it she'll rule za warudo.
>>725909>2. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!
>>725909>2. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!I don't think attrition would go our way.
>>7259092. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!
>>725909>4. EVERYONE TAKE OUT DEIDARA BEFORE HE CAN BOMB USinb4 meta, in which case>2. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!
>>725916You better hope Sasori doesn't bring out the third anon
>>725909>2. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!Set up a trap. Make an opening where it looks like they can just grab Fuu and run, when really you're just waiting to blast whoever makes them attempt.
>>725909>2. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!I swear, if best dad dies here because of that mech idea...
>>725939We're not the only ones here, and while he might hard-counter stellar, we still have plain fire and lightning release.
>>7259092. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!Activate Afterflow
>>725909>2. Order everyone to pair off and focus on different targets!Shikamaru, ino and Fu guard ASA, everyone else engage hostiles.Aim to shadow possess deidera and then kill him. Or plan B. Shadow lock sasori and nuke him
>>725949Even then Iron sand is a bitch to deal with and we don't have anyone who can stop it
So it doesn't fire senbon and kunai at supersonic speed? I call BS!
>>725941I don't think either of them is in much of a mood to flee right now, anon. If we do that, it should be after we've beaten most of the fight out of them and they're just looking to get out without a failure.
Alright, we're pairing off.But who are we pairing off with?1. Fuu2. Shikamaru3. Sai4. Choji5. Yoro
So what's the over-under on Tsuki becoming an orphan here?Cause if anything was going to do it, this would be the situation.
>>7259771. FuuShika and Choji work together. Sai can handle puppets with Yoro.
>>725977>1. FuuShe's their target. We have to prevent her capture/death.
>>725977>1. FuuMight as well defend their target while we're at it.
>>725977>1. FuuWe need to keep her from getting snatched away.
>>725977>1. Fuudelicious brown dream team
>>725965I don't think we need to stop it, since there is a whole crowd of people, i don't think he can handle all of us at once with nobody (probably us) getting to his body.That said, he has to actually bring the third out to hard counter stellar, which he probably knows little to nothing about, and even if he did, doesn't necessarily know that magnetism hard counters it, or even if he knew that too, would be able to switch up his (not actually his) techniques to counter it on the fly.If we can wreck his shit before he has a chance to do any of that, we'll be in good shape.What i wouldn't give for shino or some other aburame to be here right now, though.
>>726008It isn't magnetism, its ice since Wargle said it was pokemon rules and thats the combination of water and wind
>>726016Plasma is magnetic.Ice might also work, but so does magnetism.
>>726025We hard counter gaara, who uses magnetism. End of story. Naruto is weird my friend
>>726025My money is on Ice.
>>726031Gaara was using sand, not magnetism.Shukaku uses magnetism.
>>726025>>726031Our weakness is Ice.
>>726038.....After wargle specifically said it was Ice, and Haku specifically you're still gonna argue? only on 4chan
>>726045I'm arguing that magnet release can fuck us too, by it's very properties and the laws of physics, yes.
>>726048>Laws of Physics>Naruto
>>726048I doubt it.
>>726048It doesn't Pokemon properly though, sorry.
>>726048It doesn't work that way
Time to buddy up to Fuu.Who are you planning on targeting? The other will decide what to do based on this.1. Deidara.2. Sasori.3. Just play keep away with Fuu, trying to keep her safe.
>>726049>magnetism exists>gravity exists>ectYes, physics are a thing in naruto too.To what degree, who the fuck knows, but plasma's still magnetic.
>>726059>3. Just play keep away with Fuu, trying to keep her safe.
>>726059>1. DeidaraHe is the only one we could probably kill
>>726059>1. Deidara.>>726061Just stop anon
>>726059>1. Deidara.Squishiest and most urgent to fuck up.
>>726059>1. Deidara.As is, the others can handle crowd control.Deidara, however, can do a metric bitch-ton of damage in a relatively short amount of time.
>>726059>1. Deidara.destroy all art students!
>>726059>1. DeidaraHe was delirious and barely standing at the end of the last thread, and we hard counter his jutsu. If we're able to take down any of them, it will be him.
>>726074"No"Because it's true, and you're going to regret it if and when it happens and you chose to ignore it :^)

“Fuu, with me! Let’s take out this prattling art student!” You call out.Turning to you, she smiles and nods.The puppets try to close in- but the constant firing of the ASA is keeping them at bay, shredding any who get too close.As you and Fuu run at Deidara, your four other companions run at Sasori, intent on taking him down.The blonde Shinobi gives you a wide-eyed smile.“Oh, now you want to fight, little girls? I’ll prove my art is superior!” He growls.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Kd4mOSrTh8Jumping backwards, he expels several clay bats- which you are easily able to disable using Lightning Strike. Taking advantage of this, Fuu sprays another blast of the black, biting flies- but another short range explosion burns them away. When the smoke clears, there are several of Deidara grinning at you- clones?He’ll need to do better than that. As they advance upon you, both Fuu and yourself several kunai while dodging the clones taijutsu, in an attempt find the real Deidara- but as they are struck, they begin to swell- bombs!Fuu takes to the skies while you use the shunshin to escape the sudden blasts. Were they just a distraction….?Weapons at the ready, you prepare for an attack- but one never comes. Instead, you hear Fuu cry out- barely audible over the firing of the ASA.Eyes shooting upward, you see Deidara has taken to the sky, riding what looks to be a large white bird. It doesn’t seem quite as fast as Fuu, though, and the Jiinchuriki is able to dodge his attacks whilst mid-air. Thinking quickly, you prepare another Lightning Strike- if you hit, you should be able to neutralize his bird, as long as it’s made of the same material. You fire off the attack- but instead of dodging, Deidara fires off several large globs of clay to take the brunt of the attack, then follow up by releasing another swarm of clay birds. The birds, however, don’t attack Fuu or even yourself- they fly straight towards the ASA.Again trying for a Lightning Strike, you’re just a little too late- only clipping a few of the birds before the swarm crashes into the machine.You cry out as explosions rattle the ASA- the machine is just heavy enough to not topple over.The joint on the machine’s right leg sparks, and seems to not be entirely functioning- and one of the guns seems to have taken a few too many hits, and has been rendered inoperable. Your internal sigh of relief, however, is halted by the sickening sound of crunching bone and a grunt of pain. Looking behind you, the other Takigakure genin, Yoro, has been impaled by Sasori’s bladed tail. The other three look on in horror- Fuu hasn’t seemed to notice it, yet. This is going badly. Deidara is in the sky, and is thus harder to hit, while the team taking on Sasori seems to be making no headway- and may have just taken a casualty. You….1. Continue attacking Deidara.2. Attack Sasori.3. Engage Afterglow, and attack Sasori.
>>726400>3. Engage Afterglow, and attack Sasori.shit is hitting the fan
>>726400>1. Continue attacking Deidara.
>>726400>1. Continue attacking Deidara.We need to take out the one we know we can as fast as we can.
>>7264004. Engage afterglow and attack Deidara
>>726400>3. Engage Afterglow, and attack Sasori.We can't fly, so this looks like all we can do.
>>726400>3. Engage Afterglow, and attack Sasori.
>>726400>1.Gotta save Fuu, guys should have picked 3 if you wanted to pair up with the VIP. Should have paired up with best boy Shikamaru
>>726400Shiiiiiiit.>1. continue attacking DeidaraWe do not want him to get rolling.
>>726425Kinda favoring this, purely on the grounds that while the other group needs help, leaving Fuu high and dry out of nowhere, especially when she may be caught off guard by her killed comrade...that's worse.Ugh. If someone has a good plan of attack for dealing with Sasori I'm game, but my gut says don't leave Fuu without support. At very least we can try to neuter his explosions.1. Continue attacking Deidara.
>>726400>1. Continue attacking Deidara.>2. Attack Sasori.We have shadow clones. Therefore Por Que no los dos?
>>7264003. Engage Afterglow, and attack Sasori.Use a stellar clone have it Afterglow into his face and either 1 get stabbed and ruin the tail or 2 start channeling in swords and carve up his body. Real us Afterglow with a second shadow clone and launch ourselves at deidera with fu's help and explode on him
>>726427Can always go full palpatine on his clay bird.If he gets away with fuu right now, she's going to die.Just so you all remember.They murder her.
>>726400Engaging Sasori with afterglow would've been a pretty good option if Deidara wasn't gunning down Fuu1. Continue attacking Deidara.
>>726453Kinda what I'm hoping to do; use lightning to try and knock his ride our from under him and leave him playing catch-up, trying to regain mobility while Fuu continues her aerial assault.Much as I'm favoring Kaguya for interesting story, phoenix wings would definitely be nice right now.
>>726453We'll save her, and then be best friends
Continuing the Deidara assault train.Hell, you can even throw some shadow clones at Sasori.Roll 'em.

Looks like I arrived just in time for the bloodshed
>>726521We should know better than anybody that the dice gods are whimsical and capricious beings.We can only make our offerings and hope for the best.
>>726488good things were never meant to happenit's ebisu all over againwhy must the ones we love perish so horribly
>>726533That is correct.>>726538Don't lose hope anon. We just need to find out what the dice gods want picture wise and do our best to appease them.
>>726532My mentality at this point exactly
>>726544Dice gods, if you let us prevail in an awesome manner, I swear to vote for Tsuki to fall in lesbians with Fuu!
>>726544keep believing, anon.
>>726549I don't care if they're in lesbians. I'd just like Fuu not to be dead.She's a sweet girl and really didn't deserve that.
>>726558I roll shit most of the time. But I won't give up.
>>726549Anon please at least give it to Nori
>>726561This.Plus she totally looks like us, we didn't even plan for that.

>>726609Well actually I want Tsuki to be with Lee, Itachi, Neji if he got better, Sasuke, Shikamaru or Shino in no particular order
>>726641I still dont know what you guys have against Sasuke in this timeline.Guysuke is one of the best things in this quest.
>>726641>LeeAh, so your taste is /still/ terrible.
Itachi is a terrible husbando choice, he's just Tsuki's first crush
>>726649He's pretty fucking great. Him, Neji, Itachi and moon boy are a eugenicists dream
>>726609Then we might as well go for the gold and seduce Kaguya.Just imagine the faces of the Sage and his sons as they realize they have a second mama/grandma.
>>726565>>726641>>726649You know, we should probably wait for the death toll before we start discussing ships again.
>>726661we are twelve.
>>726649Yeah but Sakura already has a bad run in canon. Let her be happy.
>>726669Not after the timeskip.
No, you need to trust in the others to get it done- and focus on your target. They might need some assistance, however, so you create a single shadow clone to help- it’s really all you can spare.You’ll need to find a good vantage point to attack Deidara- with him flying, it’s become really difficult to get a bead on him. It would be better to fire something that strikes over a wide area.You run over to the ASA, and leap atop it, attempting to keep your balance while the remaining gun tries to keep the puppets at bay.You consider your options- Lighting Strike would be best, but it’s too precise, and hard to aim at this distance, and the Phoenix Flowers won’t have enough of an effect….Star Fall is your only attack can over a wide enough area to hit him, hopefully.You take a deep breath, and begin to charge up the stellar attack, trying to keep an eye on Deidara. It’s difficult- Fuu is barely keeping ahead of the Akatsuki member, only just managing to avoid his attacks. After a moment, it’s ready- though Deidara seems to have noticed your absence. Seeing you charging up…. Something, he scowls, and fires off several waves of clay birds, which be line to your location.You hope this works…..!“Stellar Release: Star Fall!” You cry out, expelling the blast of energy.You wait a few heartbeats, just before it would meet the first bird- then detonate the attack, causing a widespread blast of energy.Deidara tries to glide out of the way, but his bird simply isn’t fast enough- many of the stellar projectiles punch right through his bird, causing it to plummet.Thankfully, the birds were evaporated by the attack- but it seems the puppets are now closing in; the ASA’s single gun is only just able to hold them off. The second group is making little headway- both Choji and Shikamaru are relying on conventional ninja tools- while Sai’s relying entirely on his ink beasts. It seems none of the boys are willing to engage Sasori in melee range- while your clone is using fire techniques to little effect. You…1. Go in for the kill on Deidara2. Do as above, but with Afterglow.3. Go help with Sasori, leaving Deidara to Fuu.4. Do as above, but with Afterglow.
>>726695>2. Do as above, but with Afterglow.
>>726695>1. Go in for the kill on DeidaraFINISH HIM
>>7266952. Do as above, but with AfterglowDecapitate him, on blow give him no chance too sub out.
>>726695>1. Go in for the kill on Deidara
>>726695>2. Do as above, but with Afterglow.No fucking around, we need the boost.
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>726695If we go afterglow, can our clone do it too?
>>726695>1. Go in for the kill on DeidaraWe still gotta handle Sasori so I think we need to conserve SOME chakra.Granted, Deidara may be a lot less spiteful in death if he dies to something glorious like our Stellar release, but I wouldn't bet on it.With Afterglow we'd have to essentially kill/KO Deidara, and then immediately move onto Sasori.
>>726695>2. Do as above but with, afterglow
>>726695>2. Do as above, with AfterglowAs hard as it is to leave the others in that situation, we can't let Fuu face Deidara alone.
>>726726We can turn Afterglow off
>>726724Wait until he calls for rolls. It's how he's done it since the beginning.
>>726695>1.Let's save after glow for now, we are already using a shadow clone we don't want to burn through our Chakra too quickly
>>726695>2Goodnight sweet prince
>>726695>2. Do as above, but with Afterglow.2. Do as above, but with Afterglow.
Hmm. Though, as long as we definitely kill Deidara, Fuu probably still has enough in the tank to keep fighting Sasori. So even if we're tapped out (again) the original group should get some back-up.
>>7266951. Go in for the kill on Deidara
Going in for the kill~Roll'em, boys.
>>726735Left it on by accident. >>726695>2. Do as above, but with Afterglow.Lets hope we can prevent him from blowing himself up, or at least blowing us up.

So that is one ninja on the reincarnate list for later.
>>726838He was always on it.We have to worry about the ones that weren't. Or murder the hell out of Kabuto for being an entitled little shitstain.
>>726841I say we kill him because he's a turn coat spy and a traitor too root.
He’s on the back foot- you have to press your advantage!You steady your breathing- and enter Afterglow.You immediately feel the drain on your chakra- you won’t have very long.Utilizing the shunshin, you dash towards where the bird landed- though several puppets are blocking your path. Drawing your katanas, you dance by the slower constructs, slicing through them in a fluid motion. With your path clear, you see him- Deidara is trying to cannibalize his bird for some other large attack- but not on your watch!As you speed towards him, he seems surprised- again, surprise seems to be your best tactic. He opens his palms, two large clay snakes springing forth to attack- but he’s just too slow.Sliding underneath the attack, you decapitate both snakes, then spring into a run, bisecting the clay creatures as you do so. Deidara’s eyes widen, and he expels the rest his clay forward- you simply cut through it.He tries utilizing this moment to bear down on you with Taijutsu- and you have to admit, he isn’t bad. But he just isn’t fast enough to keep up with you- and he’s desperate.You parry an overhead strike, then spin to the left and bring down your blades in a single motion. Your blades meet flesh- and cut through his right arm at the elbow.He shrieks, grabbing the bloody stump of his arm, and falls over- he’s scooting away from you, trying to mend the wound with his clay.You…1. Kill Deidara.2. Attempt to capture Deidara.
>>726862>1. Kill Deidara.
>>726862>1. Kill Deidara.Yeah, no, absolutely not letting him live.
>>726862>1. Kill Deidara.I really like Deidara but keeping him alive is stupid, he's a threat to the village
>>726862...This is a tough choice. If we were gonna successfully flip any member of Akatsuki, it'd probably be Deidara.
>>726862>1. Kill Deidara.1. Kill Deidara.1. Kill Deidara.1. Kill Deidara.1. Kill Deidara.1. Kill Deidara.FOR FUUSASORI CAN'T MAKE IT OUT OF KONOHA WITH HER

>>726862>2. Attempt to capture Deidara.
>>726862>1. Kill Deidara.Shouldn't have been a psychopathic murderer. Maybe next time bucko.Also I'm guessing he's like 2 seconds away from suiciding and destroying everything in a half mile radius, so we should probably stop that. Good thing we have reasons to kill him other than meta knowledge.
All we can hope for is cute moments in the AkaTsuki alternate universe Wargle will totally do at some point
>>726862>2 In so so sorry sweet prince I wanted too recruit you but I'm afraid times up. Truly I'm sorry to cut down an artist before he can explode onto the scene
>>726862"Art's meant to be short lived right?">1.I really want to do 2, as he was the only one Tsuki liked, but at least let him go out with some piece.Make it flashy, its what he would have wanted.
I mostly want to capture Deidara because it's our best shot at intel on Akatsuki right now. Or any other plans they had for this Invasion.Deidara MIGHT spill the beans to us.
>>726862>1. Kill DeidaraAs much as I wish we could recruit him, that boat sailed back during the Home Alone section. He hates us for our business connections, hates how we still have artistic skill despite it, and hates us for forcing him to go through that deathtrap of a house, and somehow I don't feel like gambling that a bit of mercy will reverse his opinion of us, or keep him from blowing his way out of captivity.
>>726902>>726862>2 and seconding this
Art is an explosion~Writing.
>>7268621. Kill DeidaraFILLET THE BITCH
Maybe we can nail him to the ground unable too do anything and get him for inochi to mind rape
>>726862>1. Kill DeidaraAs much as I would love to keep him alive, He's way too dangerous.>>726894Of course, he gave us his word after all, and since when has anyone ever lied on the internet?
>>726917Did you know the Yamanaka can read the minds of the recently dead as long as their heads are intact? Very convenient.
>>726913>voting to spare himSupporting killing himYou alright there, boss?
>>726894Once we got the full list confirmed we can also just write fag it ourselves.I'd assume that AkaTsuki is a alt timeline where Tsuki is born BEFORE Orochimaru gets caught, forced to flee Orochimaru takes his greatest accomplishment, with the tactic aid of Yoru, who unfortunately knows exactly what would happen to Tsuki if it was known her existence is owed in part to a war criminal.Hint, the answer involves killing her in case she turns out to be a sleeper agent. At its nicest.So mean old Daddy Orochi lets us play with all his friends. Hooray!
>>726915>>726913SHIT WAIT, I meant>1
>>726915Fuck. Did going for the kill actually push him to use his suicide bomb?
>>726924At the very least, Kakuzu would approve of her parentage.
>>726929Nah we got a 90 we'll be fine.
>>726924I was thinking more Yoru was born in the Rain and got in good with the Akatsuki because he's Yoru and he would bring Tsuki with him all of the time and she would be baby sat by any of the members when they weren't doing anything. And at that point they just decided to train her to be a super weapon
where were you when we protected that smile
>>726955It's not over until the puppeteer is slain, driven off, or escaped.
>>726955in my room laughing at wikihow pics
>>7268621. Kill Deidara.His candle burns at both endsIt will not last the nightBut ah my friends and oh my foesit gives a lovely light.
>>726967>>726915Bit late there anon. Nice poem though.
>>726937i will accept nothing less that decapitation.vertical bifurcation would be best.>>726961尾張ダ
>>726979You realize we are just going to explode him, we dont have a sword.
>>726981>Drawing your katanasreading posts helps when voting
>>726981we literally cut up his clay and removed his arm using a katana
>>726981>You parry an overhead strike, then spin to the left and bring down your blades in a single motion. Your blades meet flesh- and cut through his right arm at the elbow.
>>726981>what does he think we cut his arm off with, what we sliced his clay apart withAnyways, even if sasori kills the shit out of us all, fuu can still fly away to safety.in retrospect this was probably really dumb, and now we're in trouble.worth it.
>>726979Or we could go full BRUTAL and put or fist through his skull.
>>726999Trips commands it
>>726986>>726987>>726993>>726997We don't have the good swords.Also i dont think letting the exploding guys body lying around is a good idea.
>>726997She couldn't really fly away to safety if Deidara could follow her.
>>726999Ooh, trips. Does kek will it?
>>727004>we dont have a sword.>we don't have the GOOD swords.>i was just pretending to be retarded
>>727004A sword that's able to slice through flesh is a good enough sword in this case and we've just proven that we can with what we've got. Not everything has to be done with super op ninja weaponry, my guy
>>727006that's why we're ending his life right now.and sasori, who can't fly, is left.
>>727021Ah, i thought you were saying "this was really dumb" as in the whole fight was pointless in the first place.
>>727004Body can't explode if we shove some lightning into it
So, what are the odds these are corpse clones like Itachi and Kisame were?
>>727028We were forced to fight either way.Pushing ourselves so hard just to save fuu when we could have let him fly off with her and saved ourselves an opponent was dumb from the "i don't want myself, my family and all of my friends to die right now" standpoint.Now we have a difficult battle with a probably not very, if at all injured sasori.
>>727032Don't think that would work with puppet man. Unless there is some kind of SUPER long range way to control puppets he's discovered. Meanwhile bomber man probably would rather be able to see his art in person.The real reason they wouldn't be using those corpse clones is that the clones only have a fraction of the originals power and akatsuki can't afford to pull it's punches when dealing with konoha and the yellow fucking flash
>>727039Well the entire reason this fight even happened was because they wanted to capture Fuu, meaning that the entire thing would have been completely pointless and even dumber had we let them get away with her.
>>727054If we gave her to them in the first place, they probably would have just left.This whole fight was to defend her. All of it.
>>727066Also i should mention both of her escorts are dead.She has no-one left.So unless she goes back to her village on her own, we have a pet fuu.
>>727066oh hey the sociopath is back
I hope Tsuki remembers to collect Deidara's bounty. Its gotta be YUUUUUUUUUGE.And her kekkei genkai. Unique. One of a kind Did you see that laser she blasted? She would have won if not for the liberal ninja academia confusing her. We're handcuffing our child soldiers' potential. You think the Kazekage is worried about other countries' kid? He put a demon in his son and it is paying dividends for them. We need to fight monsters not coddle them.Tsuki is a terrific kunoichi. Just terrific. Beautiful, intelligent, respected , and she understands business. Konoha needs more shinobi like Tsuki, especially with low energy lightweights like Minato flushing the leaf village down the toilet. He's a disaster of a hokage. A total disaster.Minato invites enemies into our homes, Tsuki kills them. She just wiped one of them out! We need more ninja like Tsuki if we want to destroy Akatsuki and make Konoha great again.
>>727066>just giving the villains what they want is better than fighting themAnon are you fucking stupid?
Take deidera out of konaha so he can still explode and become his art we shadow clone side by his side as he does it. Good bye Mr artist, goodbye mis corporate. They smile he explodes, a love that never came to be is lost.
>>727074A reasonable person might do that when facing two S-Class missing ninja who just want one person.You know, because most people would die protecting her.And people don't want to die.
>>727066We must protect that smile!
>>727081Anyone who doesn't want to die doesn't become a ninja in the first place.
>>727081But we're not most people. And they're brutal criminals.Use that noggin.
>>727088We did, with gusto.That's what friends are for
>>727081Well Tsuki shouldn't have even become a ninja in the first place then.
>>727081>>727090Oh, and they clearly didn't JUST want Fuu because they're part of a huge attack on Konoha that isn't ONLY focusing on Fuu. For all Tsuki knows their next objective is "Go hunt down and murder all of the academy students" and every moment merely spent DELAYING them is vital for the future strength of Konoha.
>>727091We're a twelve year old girl who's a little overconfident.Dad did most of the work be detonating the mansion.We did it either way, i'm just saying it wasn't a good idea from the perspective of most people.Would it have felt good to just turn her over? No, of course not.But most people, ninjas included, still would have done it rather than face two S-Class.
Okay, so Deidara is dead, and Fuu is safe. But how many other people are still alive? I think Yoru is probably still safe in his mech, but InoShikaCho and Sai are fighting the guy who killed and stuffed a kage and specializes in area of effect attacks, multiple opponents, and poison! I would expect at least one of them to be dead or dying by now, possibly more than one or even all of them.Which means we might have to start considering which we prioritize saving if shit gets real bad. I don't think we'll be beating Sasori without serious backup, and I don't know if we'll have enough time to both help our friends retreat AND pry Yoru out of a battle-damaged mechwarrior.
You look down on the fleeing Deidara.“Art is supposed to be fleeting, right?”You swing downwards- your arms, however, are caught by a blast of clay.All it takes is a burst of stellar energy, though- and the clay is rendered inert.Deidara continues to crawl away- but his expression as has changed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShrahZAk4agTears stream down his face, but he’s smiling.“So you understand? I can’t help but laugh of the symbolism of it- the greatest artist of this generation, taken down by some corporate witch! I- I won’t allow it!”He stands, ripping off the tattered remainder of his uniform. A strange seal is around his heart, sewn shut with a black thread. He shuts his eyes, clenches his teeth, and wrenches out the string- causing another mouth to open, with strange teeth and a large tongue.He lodges a glob of clay into the mouth, just as you manage to free your arms from the clay.“This! This is my final art! My C0! I will show you all just how wonderful my creations are!”You rush towards him, blades extended- he doesn’t even try to resist as your blade catches him in the neck.Deidara gurgles- but he’s still smiling.In the faintest of whispers, you hear him say-“Art.. is an explosion!”Wrenching free your sword, you swing around a second time- separating his head full from his shoulders.His body falls to it’s knees- and begins to swell grotesquely.You’ve seen something like this before….!As you turn to run, however, Afterglow dissipates, your chakra reserves simply too low to support it. Still, you run- and see Fuu, flying towards you.“Up!” You scream- “We need to get far away, he’s going to-”Seeing the swelling body behind you, Fuu takes action. Flying over to you, she lifts you- struggling at first.She sprouts a 3rd wing- then a fourth- eventually all the way to seven.“Chomei- please…” you hear her whisper-Before, suddenly, Fuu’s presence changes- exuding a power not unlike you saw in Nori, and felt in Gaara.Her weakness and hesitation is gone- and she takes off, you barely holding on.As you pass overhead, you see the other team, back near the ASA- surrounded by puppets, with Sasori approaching.At the top of your lungs, you yell-“Everyone, get down!”Before Fuu clears the mansion entirely.Not even a full minute later, there is a huge explosion- one the decimates the eastern half of the manor, and causes it to collapse upon itself.Shikamaru, Choji, Sai, the ASA, and even Sasori fall into it’s crumbling depths….
>>727116They're collecting jinchuuriki, you dolt.They're after fuu, gaara, nori, naruto and kushina, most likely.
>>727124Well.That could have gone better.
>>727125I know that, and Tsuki can guess at that, but she doesn't KNOW that's their entire mission and nothing else.
>>727124Holy shit, they're not dead!We're already doing better than I feared.
>>727124How did the C0 not blow up everything? Isn't doesn't it have a range of a mile or something like that?
>>727117>But most people, ninjas included, still would have done it rather than face two S-Class.You're projecting your sociopathic tendencies again.
>>727117Right, but Tsuki isn't a little bitch.
I wonder what Itachi is up to?
I hope Hinata is daijobu.
>>727139The only thing i can think of is that perhaps we cut it short when we severed his head.He didn't have time to gather all the chakra he needed for the full effect.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4btAVRePOY>727143>people in the face of overwhelming threats are never willing to put aside their morals for the sake of their survival or that of their loved ones>this is not something that ever happens, only a sociopath would do that
>>727139This is before the timeskip where he was training his ass off trying to get revenge on Itachi. This was just baby!Deidara, he didn't even have C3 or C4 developed yet!
>>727139Deidara is 3 years younger and less experienced than in canon- if you noticed, he was only using half of his abilities here.Also, it takes a while to charge up fully- and you "killed" him before It could charge a whole hell of a lot.Even at only about 20% strength, it easy did a lot of damage to the surrounding area.
Well, let's hope that nobody we care about has been crushed by rubble
>>727159and Tsuki is a hard counter to like most of shit
>>727159Alright, but still this is going to have HUGE implications for Tsuki. We killed an S-Rank ninja, our bingo book entry is going to be very interesting.
>>727159It's sad because I know they are just going to hire a more experienced jinchuri after that.>>727167If we live.
>>727170*more experienced missing nin sorry its lat, im tired. I wanna go home.
Well, on the plus side Sasori just got dropped into a shadow-rich environment with a Nara. That is not going to be fun for him.And if he's extremely unlucky and Yoru was extremely prepared, the floor underneath them just had more weapons and traps for Yoru to spring.
>>727167She didn't kill him by herself- far from it. He was significantly weakened from the traps, and Tsuki basically rendered most of his skills worthless.It's definitely an achievement- and when you report his death, you can embellish how it went down, if you want- but that might have other drawbacks you don't want.
>>727201Like other missing nin suddenly thinking they can fuck with us on their level.Or any friends he might have had taking umbrage with our murdering him.
>>727201Fuck that, i'm in for "Yeah that fuu girl did it all singlehandedly, i was basically dead weight. I guess akatsuki sure better not send anyone after her until she regains their strength!"
>>727201>We did it all by ourselves while completely drained of chakra the only reason we let Sasori get away was because he cried like a little baby and pegged us to spare himTsuki, Embellish? Never
As you fly with Fuu high over the rubble of the manor, you’re given a overhead view of Konoha- or what’s left of it.Shukaku is… gone? As is the large frog…. Most of it’s battle site is in ruins, though- it’s impossible to tell what just happened.There still seems to be some fighting going in the town below, though it seems mostly contained to a few areas. Did we win? Are they retreating? Or did they accomplish their goals?Smoke from the explosion pours off the manor, along with dust ejected from its collapse- between the debris and the setting sun, it is quite difficult to make anything out in the manor below.Before you urge Fuu to close in, however, you see someone exiting the smoke-A red-headed man in an Akatsuki uniform.Who the hell is this supposed to be? Where was he the whole fight?Is this… the real Sasori?You…1. Close in to investigate!2. Hide within the smoke and debris from the explosion until the man leaves!
>>727222>2. Hide within the smoke and debris from the explosion until the man leaves!We're running on fumes. We are /not/ going to be able to kill him right now.
>>727222>1. Close in to investigate!
>>727222>1. Close in to investigate!"Man are we lucky to have gotten team prettyboy, amirite?"
>>727201As long as we walk out of this friends with Fuu, I'll be happy.Not inclined to embellish on our feats, would rather we give it to people straight, at least when we're delivering a report. Gossip and spreading tales.>>727222Oh...balls. We're in no condition to keep fighting, but I'm not convinced we can actually hide from him.
>>727222how is Tsuki's chakra reserves?
>>727222>2. Hide within the smoke and debris from the explosion until the man leaves!let's not fuck with that
>>727222>2. Hide within the smoke and debris from the explosion until the man leaves!
>>727222> 2. Hide within the smoke and debris from the explosion until the man leaves!We are pretty much out of chakra and in no position to fuck with him. Also, nice trips
>>727222>Avoid him and look for our friends and familyI doubt we'll be able to put up much of a fight
>>727231Very poor. Under 20%, and you're only that high because the collapse crushed your Shadow Clone.
>>727191On the minus side Yoru just fell into a deep pit in a damaged robot with barely enough structural integrity to support itself. Hope he designed that thing to be drop safe. Also, darkness + massive amounts of obstructing rubble + Sasori = INVISIBLE S-CLASS NINJA WITH CLOUDS OF DEADLY POISON GAS! >>727222>2. Hide within the smoke and debris from the explosion until the man leaves!We are not up for a fight with Sasori. Even at our prime we're not up for that! UNAVOIDABLE INCURABLE POISON!
>>727154>trained soldiers should always surrender instead of holding out against grim odds, even if they have a number of advantages over their oppositionThink of every time in military history that a smaller, entrenched force successfully held out against a far superior one. Realize that those smaller forces would have just given up if they had your mindset. You coward.>>727222>2. Hide within the smoke and debris from the explosion until the man leaves!This is clearly a third Akatsuki member here to check on Sasori and Deidara, and we aren't in any condition to take on another one.
>>727222We should tell fuu to drop us off so we can call in reinforcements while she goes back to help them.We can't fight anymore, but we can bring help.I'm sure itachi and danzo saw, felt and heard that explosion, along with a bunch of other ninja nearby.With most of the fighting over, people should start converging on this hot zone.

>>727269If we weren't obsessed with protecting that smile, yes, we should have handed her over.But you know how it is, you gotta protect that smile.
>>727277The people attacking Konoha want her.Attacking konoha makes them our enemies.Denying our enemies their objective is a worthy goal all on its own.
>>727280In this specific case, the enemy of our enemy happens to be our friend.
>>727277That is one of the best examples of psychopathic thinking I have ever seen. "Kill this person to make my life easier" is basically what you're saying.
>>727259God, why are the Akatsuki so damn HOT? Are they a mercenary organization or a modeling agency? And Tsuki is even fighting the most bishonen of them all!
>>727298Xe looks a tomgirl.
>>727277>not wanting someone brutally murdered for the benefit of our village's enemies is waifufaggotryno.not even.>>727298anime
>>727288No, it's "probably kill this person to save my life and the lives of everyone here," you autistic fuck.What about this is difficult to comprehend.One's own life is generally more valuable than that of another when you have time to think about it, and even then we still have to consider that NOT TURNING HER OVER WILL PROBABLY KILL EVERYONE ELSE AND THEN HER TOO WHEN THEY'RE DONE WITH US
Soooooo, anyone else up for donation towards the reconstruction of the village in order to raise our standing with the Leaf after all this bullshit?
>>727310Aye.[spoilerThe people will love the Norihime and phase one of the plan is nearing completion.[/spoiler]
>>727310make konoha a company village!
>>727304the psychopathic bad guys are not /not/ going to kill people just because they got what they came for, you fucking wackjob
>>727304>What about this is difficult to comprehend.Nothing. You're the one who's missing the entire point.
By the by, our story for how this went down should basically be "Our high quality Norihime Home Security System did the vast majority of the work taking down the two S-Rank missing nins who are wanted across the Shinobi Nations. By the end of it, even our haphazard collection of genin were able to take one of them down! Please direct all purchase inquiries to our office in..."The best part is it's completely true
>>727304Except we had a mansion the size of the Biltmore Hosue full of traps to put between us and them, we outnumbered them heavily, we knew the terrain much better, one was 16 and inexperienced, and we had a good reason not to turn her over. We were reasonable in assuming that we could pull through in a fight with them, if only barely. And we did.Everything you say is making me more and more convinced you are a psychopath. Or just barely not one.
>>727324WE CAN REBUILD KONOHA! EVEN BETTER THAN BEFORE! We could get the rebuilding contract from the Daimyo and turn Konoha into a technological marvel, with top of the line automated security, mechanized transportation of materials, and excellent restaurants!
>>727321What?I'm arguing that giving her to them probably would have ended with them just leaving.>>727323You seem to be arguing that sacrificing a single person for the sake of everyone else is a psychopathic action, while i'm arguing that it's not. If i'm so fucking blind, feel free to explain it.>>727328>a mansion full of trapsAgainst legendary ninja.>outnumbered them heavilyPrimarily tired and wounded children that were just in the hospital.>knew the terrain betteronly us, the rest had never been in the mansion.>one was 16and still an s-class ninja.>we had a good reason not to turn her overWhich was?

>>727344They. Evil. The moment we give them what they want, they're going to laugh at us for being stupid and instead proceed to fucking slaughter us.Instead, we said no, fought them, killed one, and only suffered, like, two casualties the entire time (hopefully).We're a goddamn soldier, not some brainless ostrich sticking its head in the sand and hoping it will all be better.There are people who betrayed their villages and have killed a great number of people. Why the FUCK do you think they'd have anything resembling honor or mercy?
>>727354*They're*Thesemuh englishgoddamn these tired hands of mine
>>727124YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!So glad people voted to kill him.Fuckin' hype.
>>727354Their only goal was to capture the girl and get the fuck out.They were not angry or frustrated or in any way unhappy with us.They had no reason to slaughter a room full of genin and maidservants.I know that we're a soldier, and i know that the decision we made is always the one tsuki would have made, because she's a fictional character controlled by fat autistic weaboos that don't have to worry about dying from stupid decisions.From the start, i've been saying that this is just a really fucking dumb idea from the standpoint of any reasonable person with any sort of sense of self preservation.
>>727344Do you not see the contradiction in insisting the 16yo is a legendary warrior to be feared while simultaneously insisting that our side is just child soldiers?>>727343The kicker is that, in the end we ended up profiting off Deidara's art anyway.
>>727371I give up.You're either too stubborn or too stupid to listen.

>>727344Dude, what else would I think from "one's own life is more important than another's?" That's a perfect example of psychopathic thinking. And not having empathy for someone else? What else do am I supposed to think. Everything you've said is completely devoid of empathy. And before you say "it's a fake character" you're not talking about the character.

Factor in an entire house of deathtraps that we can traverse freely but our opposition cannot, and there was ample reason to suspect that we could Vietnam our way to a victory.And that's exactly what ended up happening, you salty bitch.
I wonder how Tsunade and 3rd best girl will be introduced into the quest?
You instruct Fuu to fly into the smoke and dust to hide yourselves-You don’t know if this is Sasori, or another entirely different Akatsuki member- and you’re in no shape to fight him. Besides, you need to try and save those who fell- and you can’t do that if you’re trying to fight someone.You hover in the clouds of smoke for what seems like hours- even though it was likely only a few minutes. After a few more, Fuu flies above the smokescreen to see if the man is gone- and indeed, there’s no trace of him.You can’t guarantee he isn’t still lurking around, but you aren’t going to be able to help father and the others just by waiting. Instructing Fuu to land as stealthily as possible, she gently glides down, finding an area that seems somewhat stable. The manor seems to have collapsed upon itself- though only a few areas seem to have punctured down into the basement- or even the subbasement, where those unable to fight were hiding.You’ll need to clear the rubble to free them, but-Wait, you see something!Rubble shifts, then gives way- a large inflated Choji seems to be holding up a particularly heavy piece.You don’t think you’ve ever been quite so happy to see the chubby shinobi- you make a mental note to feed him Maru’s cooking again sometime soon. He certainly does look worse for wear- as do Shikamaru and Sai, who are with him.You sneak over to them, speaking in a low whisper.“Guys, you’re alive!”“Barely.” Choji grunts. “If it wasn’t for my body expansion technique, I think we’d all be dead.”“Nice save, as always, Choji.” Shikamaru says, patting his friend on the back. “Is anyone still about?” Sai inquires.“We saw a man with red hair leave a little while ago- but nobody else.” Fuu whispers, having joined your side.“Alright, Team, we need to figure out what we’re doing from here. We need more-” Shikamaru starts.“I need to find my Dad.” You interject.He’s a bit taken aback, but eventually Shikamaru just nods.“He wasn’t that far from us, but it’s hard to sat where the machine may have landed…”Your team of five spreads out, and before too long, Choji calls you over.“I think this is the entry hatch, anyway. It’s locked from the inside, though.” He explains.“Could you pry it open, Choji?” You ask. “When this is all over, I’m sure Maru will reward you with a buffet.”A new light in his eyes, he nods emphatically.He performs some hand seals, then quickly expanded to nearly triple his size. Along with the others, you help clear away some debris, as Choji begins to heave.A vein becomes visible on his head as his struggles- finally, you hear a hinge pop- then another- and finally the door is ripped free.Inside is your father- unmoving.
>>727410Quest to find Tsunade, the new and top Hokage candidate, I bet.
>>727412looks like my question >>727410 just got answered
>>727381You're the one who doesn't understand how humans think if you honestly believe the average person is willing to intentionally throw away not just their own life, but a room full of people's just to protect one person.>reputation doesn't always mean everythingYes, i'm sure they just hand out s-class status like fucking hotcakes, nevermind we know for a fact he's the real deal.>fuu and her guys were fineOne of the few. Both of her guards died instantly anyways, and fuu herself could hardly keep up with a heavily injured and weakened deidara.>we were guiding them, does that not count?Not in the middle of combat with a room full of people, no. What are you going to do, explain to each of them the layout of the building as you fight for your lives?>they attacked the village to get to her, therefore we shouldn't let them have herExcept they would immediately stop attacking the village having completed their mission, reducing damage to the village and saving lives.You literally just admitted you only wanted to do this out of spite, not for a logical reason like actually protecting the village. She wasn't one of us, she's from another village.>explain how it's not reasonableGee, how about all this shit i've been saying this whole time>No, he's leavingTrue, my mistake.>>727402Except we're dead in the water after that and had we not passed the sneak check, we'd be up against another one right now.Unless we just flew away, but anons would never let that happen.
>>727412>Inside is your father- unmoving.Oh no
>>727412>Inside is your father- unmoving.Oh.
>>727420Oh I hope that's it.Would hate for him to be dead.
Holy salt, guys. Calm down.Have a rare Tsuki
>>727412Please just be unconscious...
>>727432Wargle, you're throwing around a lot of conflicting messages with that picture and that last post
>>727422>>727426>>727430I would imagine he got knocked the fuck out from the fall.Being inside a mech doesn't actually protect against gravity.He's probably fine.
>>727432I am. It's just that people being silly really gets under my skin. Like I said, I'm not doing it anymore. It's stupid and not worth it. I'm just wasting my time.
>>727421Fuu can fly off now that deidara's dead and we can in an emergency fuck off to the moon. If we had failed the sneak check we would've been fine.
>>727432Do you just have a stack of secret lewds you plan to drip feed us whenever we get rowdy?Im not complaining but hot damn
>>727432how deep does the Tsuki pic hole go Wargle?you are holding out on us!
>>727454Sasori can fill the sky with puppets so...mayhaps not.
>>727455>Do you just have a stack of secret lewds you plan to drip feed us whenever we get rowdy?That's what i like to call a perverse incentive.
>>727454Kaguya said she used her only freebie last time.
>>727454That was not the situation when we chose to pick this fight.Besides, even if we and fuu leave mid-battle, that still leaves everyone else behind.
>>727454>emergency fuck off to the moonFuck that.
>>727410Shizune need to be larger
I can agree we should go too the moon for the war orphan but that's it. While tbere let's the bunnies make their case but no promises
>>727470I'd rather just ignore it all forever, personally.
>>727470Why run away? Tsuki isn't a coward.
>>727474I didn't mean now, meant later
>>727476Even then. It's a terrible idea.
Oh come on is no one going to comment on my "perverse incentive" bit? That was solid gold!
>>727480Ok well done anon well done.
>>727461Didn't Wargle say at the beginning of the home invasion that fucking off to the moon was a possible option? (Albeit one that would have abandoned everyone else)
>>727493I think,but that would mean we owed Kaguya. Which is not worth it.
>>727503Not at all worth it.
>>727503I'll have to go back over the archives where we met her, I guess.
Oh. Oh no.No no no no.Immediately you push past Choji into the cramped cockpit of the machine.Crying, you shake Yoru Norihime.You aren’t ready for this- you can’t be. You hug his body tightly-Only for a hand to weakly pat you on the head.You look at your father- one eye open, but smiling.“Sorry sweetheart- did I scare you? I didn’t mean to.”His voice is faint- but he seems to be alright- until he tries to move.“Agh- Tsuki dear, I think my leg is stuck.” He groans.You look down- and just like that, the lump in your throat rises again.His left leg is pinned under the crumpled metal of the machine- bloodstains visible on his pantleg.“Father, your leg is…” You mumble.“Pinned, is it?” He sighs.“I should’ve been more careful. I never intended it to be used in this state- and I didn’t put nearly enough attention into the safety precautions.”He groans again- seems his adrenaline might be wearing off.“Leave me here, Tsuki. Go, and check on the village. Find Danzo. I can only hope we got at least one of those bastards.”“...we did. The blonde bomber- Deidara- is dead. I think the other one is still alive, but he’s gone.” You report.He gives you a faint smile.“Danzo would be proud. Stay out of trouble, Tsuki- just find Danzo. He’ll know what needs to be done.”1. Alright, you’ll hunt down Danzo.2. No- you need to stay here to protect him, and the others below.
>>727493Yup and that was a coward's option.
>>727513>1. Alright, you’ll hunt down Danzo.
>>727513>1. Alright, you’ll hunt down Danzo.Daddy's girl
>>7275131. Alright, you’ll hunt down Danzo.Tell everyone else too stay here, he dies, you die.
>>7275132. No- you need to stay here to protect him, and the others below.This is giving me some serious "don't see me die" vibe.
>>727513fuck dude, pry the metal up and bind his leg.we can find danzo after that.i'm sure a bunch of ninja can manage to bend or cut through some metal.
Get a medic from the people hiding below?
ask Choji if he can giant man the beam off of Yoru?
>>727513I have a distinct feeling that if we don't save him here, he's not going to make it.>Other: Fetch a medic from down below and try to extract him from the mech
>>727528We did just come from the hospital, there be one or two medics if not medical ninja still with us, right?I don't want to have to worry about him bleeding out while we're gone.
>>727527The rest of the ASA is entirely covered in rubble- Choji just found the cockpit door. You could feasible do it, but it would take a lot of time. You'd also need to get the people from below, or take Yoru there.
>>727537I don't see a reason not to.The fighting has died down in the village, and we're not in danger here anymore.I think we can take a little time to make sure our father doesn't die.
>>727513Ok so we are voting to leave the others here and the staff take care of him maybe slice him out the rubble first before leaving him too medics.We go find dadzo
>>727541The fighting has died down in MOST of the village, yes. There is an option for staying.
>>727537>but it would take a lot of time.>>727541>we can take a little time>a little time
>>727546Well, we don't need to personally oversee it.Just grabbing some people to help him out before taking off shouldn't take too long, right?>>727549I realize that, anon.I mean any amount of time seems fairly insignificant considering the issue at hand.
>>727544I'll clarify my vote to this.We fetch the people from below to save Yoru, then we go out to search for Danzo.
>>727513>1. Alright, you’ll hunt down Danzo.The others can get our dad to help, we have to go find our other dad and witness his death scene find out what's going on!
Ok, finding Danzo still wins- You can still1. Tell everyone else to stay behind with Yoru, and tell them where the door to the subbasement is.2. Bring a person or two with you to seach for Danzo, leave the rest here.3. Bring everyone, leave Yoru here alone.
>>727559>1. Tell everyone else to stay behind with Yoru, and tell them where the door to the subbasement is.Fuu needs to maintain a low profile and the civies need protectionone person can move quicker and easier
>>727559>2. Bring a person or two with you to seach for Danzo, leave the rest here.>Fuu
>>727559>1. Tell everyone else to stay behind with Yoru, and tell them where the door to the subbasement is.
>>727559>1. Tell everyone else to stay behind with Yoru, and tell them where the door to the subbasement is.Yoru and the civilians need protection.
>>727559>2Fuu. Somebody else moderately fast.Would say Shikamaru but they need a tactician here.Check the sub basement before full speed to grab a doctor or a Danzo
>>727559>1. Tell everyone else to stay behind with Yoru, and tell them where the door to the subbasement is.Only Fuu is really in shape to do anything, but I don't think we want that kind of attention again. Hopefully Sasori doesn't come back and she can hide out here.
>>727559>2. Bring a person or two with you to seach for Danzo, leave the rest here.>1. Tell everyone else to stay behind with Yoru, and tell them where the door to the subbasement is.We're fucking spent, we need at least a little backup. Fuu should come with us, since jinchuuriki stronk.
>>727559>2. Bring a person or two with you to seach for Danzo, leave the rest here.
>>7275591. Tell everyone else to stay behind with Yoru, and tell them where the door to the subbasement is.
>>727579Even if Tsuki stayed, she couldn't put up much of a fight.
>>727559>Tell everyone else to stay behind with Yoru, and tell them where the door to the subbasement is.
>>727559>2. Bring a person or two with you to seach for Danzo, leave the rest here.OROCHIMARU IS STILL OUT THERE, GUYS.
>>727584Yeah, hopefully we can just sneak around and not get noticed. Though Sai might be able to help out with the searching...
>>727589And if you bring Fuu, he'll get two for the price of one.
Everybody stays, Tsuki leaves.Writing.
>>727589I hear the moon is nice this time of year.
>>727595make it clear to everyone that we're spent as a mug from killing deidara and already on our second soldier pill, and any volunteers to come along would be nice.
>>727605Nope. It's dark half of the year.
>>727608so is the planet :^)
>>727614Nope. There's no light on the other side of the moon. It's pitch black. The only reason why the moon glows is because the sun. ;)
Bring Ino and Sai....I have my reasons.
>>727615I think you missed the point entirely.Both the planet and moon are (almost, ignoring eclipses) always only lit on one half.The moon is just tidally locked, always facing the planet.
>>727618Where is Ino any ways?
>>727618>>727607The vote already happened.
“Shikamaru, You still have that remote my dad gave you?” You call out.“Hm? Yeah, I’ve still got it.” He responds, holding up the remote.“Great. Listen- I need you guys to use that to open the door to the sub-basement- that’s where Ino and the others are. Once you do that, I need you to help them free my dad, and patch him up. Ok?” You instruct.He raises an eyebrow at you.“And what will you be doing?”“I need to find Danzo- and figure out what’s going on in the village.” You respond. “...Alone?”“You guys need to stay here to protect the civilians, and those who cannot fight. Fuu needs to stay here too- if they’re after her, bringing her right back into the village is probably a bad idea. Once you get him inside, you guys can re-engage the defenses.” You explain.Shikamaru shrugs, then gives a deep sigh.“Don’t get yourself killed, Tsuki. Not after all we’ve done. Alright?”You smile.“Who do you take me for, Shika? Besides, you owe me a rematch in Shogi.” You tease.He frowns“Since when? Ah, whatever. Just be careful.” He says, walking off towards where the sub-basement entrance is supposed to be.You say goodbye to the others- Fuu is especially worried about you.“Hey now, Tsuki! You shouldn’t go alone! We work great as a team- even Chomei says so!” She chides.“We do- but those people are after you. Your other friends gave so much to make sure they didn’t get you- and I don’t plan on letting their sacrifices be in vain.” you respond.She frowns, looking aside at the rubble.“Both of them were always keeping me safe. I guess I should be more responsible, huh? Alright, I’ll stay- but promise me you’ll be careful! Promise me!” She begs.“Promise, Fuu.” You say, flashing her a Norihime smile.With that, you leave the rubble of your destroyed home- to head towards the village. ----------------------
>>727632CUTE!FUU IS CUTE!
>>727632Maybe we should keep her, say she is MIA...we'd have snuck a tailed beast and a friend.
>>727632FUU IS PURE! TOO PURE!THE WORLD DOESN'T DESERVE HER!
>>727636I doubt they'd believe that. Or that we could keep her under wraps.
>>727641>>727637>>727636It was well worth all the salt and sacrifice.
>>727636>>727639It's a terrible plan. 1. There are other witnesses that saw her. 2. The Village wouldn't give up on her so easily. 3. She has a freaking demon in her4. So many things can go wrong
>>727644Does Taki have any alliances with any of the great villages?
>>727636I want to keep her too but Jinchuuriki's are big responsibility and Waterfall already called dibs.she's totes a pen pal though
>>727645Probably not but Fuu is the vessel of a powerful demon. It will be a concern to everyone.
>>727644chomei likes us, and she's not a rampaging, human-hating walking disaster like most tailed beasts.
>>727645They would the moment konoha nabbed their jinchuri, and that would be with "everyone that's not konoha"
----------------------CHARACTER CHANGE!You are now playing as [NORI UZUMAKI]Prepare yourselves!-----------------------------Today might just be the worst day of your life- and since becoming a shinobi, you’ve had quite a few crummy days.First, Tsuki decided to decided to mess with Ichiraku’s and try to force you into quitting the exams- then on top of that, she beat you, after you lost in the arena!Man, that girl- she’s something else. There’s a heart down there, for sure, but it’s buried under a pile of ryo bills. Or something.Then, you make up, and somebody’s attacking the village! Seriously, the hell is with today?Whatever, at least you found Grandpa Jiraiya- without him and his toads, you really aren’t sure if those Uchiha guys would’ve been able to deal with the One-Tails- speaking of which, damn, the One-Tails is Gaara! You weren’t expecting that, though the kid was definitely creepy enough.“Nori, keep up. We need to find your Dad- I’ve got a bad feeling.” Jiraiya says, walking a few paces ahead of you.“Yeah, I’m here. Don’t worry about me- I couldn’t lose your sleazy toadface even if I wanted to!” You quip.Normally that would make the old man laugh- but he doesn’t. Ever since that winged woman showed up and took Gaara away, he’s been different- more serious. He won’t tell you what’s going on, either- he just keeps saying that you need to find your dad. Which, you guess is important- he’s the Hokage, after all- but seriously, he’s probably fine. Nobody would mess with the Yellow Flash- right?The again, you can feel it too- something is very wrong. Why would Suna betray you? You and your team were just there- you even saw the Kazekage! They didn’t seem unfriendly, or anything…It puzzles you. You’ll be the first to admit that most of the political stuff Dad talks about is beyond you- but he seemed so sure it was a good idea when you had talked to him about it. You suppose even your Dad is capable of making mistakes- not that Naruto would ever believe it.Speaking of your brother- you hope he’s alright. Knowing him he’d get in over his head trying to prove himself- but you’d hope he’s smarter than that.You sigh.Today’s been such a drag, you’re ready for bed. Instead of complaining any more though, you pick up the pace to stand beside Grandpa Jiraiya- better not make the old guy worry any more than he already is. His hair is already all white as it is!The two of you continue down the road towards your Dad’s offices- and when the sounds of battle reach you, both of you take off in a run.----------------------------
>>727632Honestly, I really want to learn more about Chomei. He's a tailed beast who doesn't bear a grudge against humanity, and talking with him might help reveal to Tsuki a lot of the history behind the tailed beasts. Seeing as so much of the shit in the past was caused by people seeing the tailed beasts as crazed, mindless animals instead of intelligent beings, he might even be grateful to just speak with another being who's not his jinchuuriki, even if he keeps mum about anything interesting.>>727645I imagine they'll be warmer to the idea of one with Konoha when Fuu tells Shibuki [s]how their genin chose to face down the Akatsuki rather than forsake her[/s] how many friends she made there, and how everyone who wasn't invading was really nice.
>>727670Looks like we'll end up having to save Gaara eventually I'm down with it
>>727672If we don't get "wait your mom ALSO died in childbirth because your parents wanted a superweapon?" I'm never going to forgive Wargle.
And that's all, folks.Both this thread and the previous will be archived or are already archived, because I'm a lazy indecisive guy-But expect more Shinobi Quest in the days to come! We're finally approaching the climax of the Crush, and the consequences will never be the same!/rimshotBut really-@WargleQM for Rare TsukisNext thread will be in the future! Stay tuned.~POST THREAD SQUAD~
>>727677Thanks for running, Wargle!
>>727677thanks for running
>>727677Thanks for running!Also, post thread hype.anyone else eager to see how our cool factor ramps up once the rest of our team learns how we wasted Deidara?
>>727677Thank you for running, Wargle.
>>727677Thanks for running Wargle.
>>727677Are you suggesting you have more rare Tsuki's? Is this change of character taking place at the time we left tsuki or is it just after thereof fell
>>727684Somewhat concurrent. If you remember, Shukaku was defeated while you were fighting Deidara and Sasori, so there isn't a huge time difference.
>>727677It was a great session, thanks for running.>>727680>how we wasted Deidara>not using our victory to shill the Norihime Home Security System for maximum capitalismWe need to save the Hokage too though, otherwise they'll be too busy with that "grieving" thing to notice our pitch.
>>727684Rare Tsukis are issued on a strict "Need to know basis"
>>727688sling bikini Tsuki?you don't to post it, just tell me it exists
>>727690It does not.Yet
>>727692all I can do is hope for a better tomorrow
>>727694That's all any of us can do anon. Unless Wargle supplies the Rare Tsukis. Then there is a better tomorrow.
>>727695I got my rare Tsuki.All you gotta do is just ask.
Careful what special Tsuki's you ask for I mean seriously ain't you playing with fire doing that
>>727701Business suit Tsuki
>>727677Hey wargle you know, theses new hours actually aren't that bad for yurop.Starts when I'm still sleeping but I continues during the morning before my boss gets his ass to work.Not only can I follow it on imageless 4chan, I may be able sneakily post sometimes.
The casualty list on this is gonna be fuck huge
>>727701>>727696 Tsukis with a whole family.
>>727709I got a very rare tsuki.I doodled it on my notepad.It's only got three colours, it's just chibi.But it's the rarest.Because I'm not scanning it and I'm even less posting it.
I scrounged together some dank fuus.There's very little out there.https://imgur.com/a/DxOQL
I wake up and he thread is barely over!>>727712I have a feeling we might need this one soon.
>>727298Because he's like 14. Didn't grow up much before he turned himself into a puppetlich, a pupich, if you will.
>>727671Yet another facet of the world that's tragically underdeveloped. Fuck, I'd have actually watched some of the endless shippuden flashback fillers if they'd been about the other jinchuuriki/bijuu.
So anons, which major (konoha) characters do you think are going to die? In order of likelihood I think:>Jiraiya>Minato>Hiruzen>Kushina>Danzo>Naruto>Itachi>Sasuke>Nori>HinataI'm probably expecting 2 out of the top 5. Maybe 1 out of the bottom 5 if Wargle wants to shock us.
>>728125>Jiraiya>DanzoAnd on the cripple list>Minato
>>728125I don't want anyone to die
>>728185Nobody wants someone to die, even if Minato is shit. This is what we think will happen.
>>728125The only ones I'm reasonably confident will survive are>Naruto>Sasuke>Nori>HinataAnd Tsuki, I guess.If this incident with Minato goes as I'm guessing, then it's going to be Nori helping fight against whoever's attacking Minato, with Minato and Jiraiya as the expendable crutch characters. If something goes wrong in the fight, it's going to be Minato or Jiraiya that die first.Also, though it's sheer and blatant metagaming, I'd bet that Minato and Kushina are more likely to die than the rest because they already died in the real timeline, and their deaths would just be bringing the tragedy quotient up to par with the main timeline's, so to speak.As for everyone else, I can easily see any of them turning up dead.
Tsuki will find danzo just as he is about to use his reverse yin seal to take several enemy shinobi with him. She'll lose it and go full bloodrage, kill several assholes, pass out\ get knocked out by sensei and as a result attain 3.5 - 4/5 stellar by the time shge wakes up a week later. Nori will watch her wreck shit with shock and concern.
>>728125>Danzo>Yoru>NoriMaybe Hinata if she proves annoying enough or they just want to piss off the Hyuuga.Rogue Tsuki Quest soon.
Yooooo, i just remembered.Tsuki's getting paid a FAT stack for the bounty of an s-class missing ninja.ROOT restoration here we come.And we need ROOT now more than ever.
>>728323Don't forget half of our house.
>>728333That's for dad to worry about.We have more important things to do than rebuilding our mansion, like making sure this doesn't happen again.ROOT here we come.
>>728335Or if things go the way i think they will we name it after our lost DanzO-nly No Uchiha Allowed
>>728323You uh, realize that's a drop in the bucket. Our allowance is probably more than that.
>>728995The next time you feel the urge to spew verbal diarrhea from your cocksocket, don't.
>>729004Okey dokey dosh anon, I just have to remember you're unhinged and any attempt to say something relevant is immediately met with resistance and vitriol. tl;dr stop being a faggot
>>729071See, there you go again.
>>729078To be fair you are obviously the retard out of the 2 of you
>>729096>our allowance is probably more than the bounty of an s-class missing ninja>i'm the retardI'll see you both in special ed then, i guess.
SooooooHow did do you think danzo is?On a scale of sneked to complete fucking disintegration
>>729108Danzo is probably fine.I'm moderately worried about itachi and minato.
>>729105No your the retard because your response was full autismo, whether you're right or not is irrelevant.
>>729122You're just as bad as him.Keep that cocksocket shut, friendo.
>>729108More importantly, how many Akatsuki do you think died here?
>>729108He's probably fine, Minato, not so much
>>729127Let's see...>DeidaraFucking rekt>HidanHas killed someone. If his combatant doesn't know about his ritual, they probably die. Will probably be neutralised in revenge.>KakazuProbably alive. Unless his hearts are taken out in one hit, he'll most likely retreat when he gets low.>KisameLikely alive. Too goddamn strong.>KonanAlive.>OrochimaruAlive for now. Can only be killed here by Jiraiya, Minato or Hiruzen and may take his opponent down with him.>SasoriAlive.>PainAlive but possibly not for long.>Tobi>ZetsuDear god I hope they're not here.
>>729173Minato probably got ganged up on and overwhelmed if not the backlash from his carelessness may just fuck everything up for himFor danzo it all depends on what he did If he tried to help Minato he got fucking curbstomped If he went for garaa than he's probably fine
>>729193I don't think Minato's dead yet, the dude is fast and definitely not easy to pin down. If he does die he'll bring down the biggest threat/s with him. He has shadow clones, teleportation, and death seal. Not hard to see how those fit together.
>>729202But he also had to fight the kazekage,pain,and some other akatsuki members If he does manage to survive all it would take is one good "why the FUCK did you let this happen?" speech when everyone is still shocked by the events and he may be over thrown
>>729218If Danzo or Yoru ends up biting it and Minato makes it through, she's going to go completely black ops and make sure Minato gets overthrown
I'm so glad my players get along
>>729244Oh good, you're not busy, i guess you'll be running tonight :^)
>>729230>Yoru ends up biting itHe's fine.>Already planning a post-invasion coup in the middle of the invasionAre you this disloyal in real life too?
>>729251I'm plenty loyal to people who don't fuck up and cause people I care about to die
>>729262Well, this is the sort of situation where you roll with it - recriminations can wait. We don't know what the Hokage knew, what his plan was, what he was advised to do, etc. If he was clearly at fault and has to go, he'll leave willingly or get pushed out by the village high ups. Not by some jumped up genin.
>>729230>Danzo is either fine or dead>yoru may have been crippled >if someone actually says anything about Minato doing nothing shit might get real in the leafWe should probably hold off on our shadow war/coup plan until we get all the details of the invasion finalized
>>729244Also by the way, it's been forty threads.When are we getting our kiba?
>>729284The guidelines for aquiring the Kiba were set when you turned them in.Why not go ask Minato about it?:^D
>>729293Oh god he's dead
>>729293Because we're nori, because he might be dead, because who the fuck knows where he is.But the exams are over, and i think we've proven ourselves capable of wielding them at this point.The only issue i see arising is minato being a fag and withholding them because secret ninja politics.
>>729308The exams ended near the end of the third round were pain came out and talked trashMinato had literally no time to give us the swords because he was dealing with both pain and the kazekage
>>729328The swords weren't even a thought in anyone's head at that time, what are you even talking about.
>>729337That may have been my reading comprehension going into the shit leaguesI thought you wanted the kiba now
>>729352I do.I want to get them as soon as possible, preferably right after finding danzo, who's probably by the hokage's office anyways.Nobody was talking about trying to get them during the exam, which minato forbade, or immediately once we were under attack.
>>729365>Implying the swords aren't just about to be reclaimed by Kisame
>>729365As I said my reading comprehension going to the shitter
>>729230Ugh, you can't get any more edgy? Tsuki is loyal to the village even if the leader isn't exactly the type she wants. A good soldier protects his/her leader even if they disagree with them. If you do that then you will have to fight Noir.
>>729390Okay lets just follow the man in charge forever even if he is unfit for the job. And if thats the case then better take back that money we put into Root since Root goes directly against what Minato wants.
>>729396You're autistic as fuck aren't you
>>729396Here's a novel idea: let's not betray the leader of our village just because he's an idealistic fool.Revolutions are seldom simple and painless, and anyone planning a revolt against the village leader during a conflict is at least as much of a danger to the village as the S-class nins who are currently tearing it apart. If you don't like it, convince him to retire instead of damaging the unity that Konoha needs to survive the conflict.
>>729434He fucked up pretty hard desu.A lot of people died today.
>>729451>implying that's not the fault of the people who tried to kill everyone.
>>729456Of course, you can never blame a leader for being so unprepared and complacent as to allow this to happen, especially on such a massive scale in the first place.I'm not saying lynch him, i'm saying call his ability as a leader into question.
>>729451>It was his fault that a crazy kid flipped out and cause a demon to rampagedlol
>>729451I'm gonna say again, wait and see. We're not in the inner circle of the village leadership and don't know what went down. For now and a while after the attack, we should think of nothing but protecting Konoha. It's not the time to start divisions.
>>729466So do you hate Tsunade and Hiruzen too?
>>729467>he didn't stop it when gaara did it, he didn't stop it when his own daughter did it, and in fact he stopped other people from stopping it>>729472They didn't do a very good job of preventing these things either. Just saying.
>>729466>implying it's his fault for not being autistic and planning for every possibility in existence.
>>729466Nobody could prepare for this shitHalf the people invading are Kage tier and some surpass thatWithout being on red alert at all times and simply being much stronger as a village in general theres not really anything you can do
>>729485What the fuck are they suppose to do about the crush?
Instead of plotting against Minato, it's more productive to plot against his replacements. If he dies, who's currently in the running, and who do we NOT want in office? Obviously Danzo, while optimal for us, isn't in the runningWe need to watch out for the Uchiha trying to edge their way inJiraiya isn't the worst choice, but he really won't want itThere's Tsunade, if weird shit didn't go down with herHiruzen is way too old, but might get forced back in anywayKakashi could do the job if no one else is left Who else is in the running? Who else do we WANT in the running?
>>729490Conceivably, he made a mistake by letting the sound (more importantly, Orochimaru) in. My guess is he was trying to use the opportunity to remove snek. The vast majority of the force though was random Akatsuki attack. Nobody could have prevented that, those fuckers can slip in anywhere undetected.
>>729496Somehow know everything that would happen and everyone involved and plan against it all, of course.What else would they do?/s
>>729490>>729496It should have been stopped before it began.Before these people were able to run wild for years and years, then team up and plan the destruction of konoha.They should have been hunted down one by one and slaughtered."But it's haaaaaaard" -Hokage
>>729498Itachi is probably in the running but it would be better he didn't get it considering he shared Minato's beliefs for the most part. We would probably want someone who slides closer to Danzo like Tenzo or maybe Shikaku
>>729498Danzo would be great for us, but it'd be suspicious. Kakashi is Minato's right hand man, I'm not comfortable with their leadership tbqh. Tsunade is a good middle ground, we'd have to find her and convince her though.
>>729490the mistakes that led to this are years in the past. letting Akatsuki get this powerful in the first place by failing to keep track of and control known S-class factors, like allowing Orochimaru relatively free reign or leaving creatures like Hidan and Kakuzu unchecked. what is leaf's intelligence department even doing, if not keeping track of the army killers?
Man you guys are just eating up that bait.
>>729451They died because he was an idealist who didn't expect the people attending to betray him, and with regards to the Sound (who he knew were enemies) he couldn't have refused them without insulting the Kazekage who invited them along, which would have not only started the same conflict with the Sand that he was hoping to avoid, but would have gotten him labeled as the one who started it in the eyes of the world.It's easy to judge the actions of leaders when you aren't the one making the decisions; he probably realized that the joint exam was a mistake back when the Sound appeared with the Sand, but was in too far to back out without enormous political backlash, and not just from the Sand and Sound.That said, let me ask you this question:Do you think he will make the same mistake again?
>>729529here's your (You)
>>729501Yeah Akatsuki would fuck with any kage in any countryThe Orochi stuff I feel is honestly just something thats lasted because canon>>729515The Mist is recruited for most missing nin and each village deals with it's own missing nin unless they fuck with them, like now the leafs gonna be going for akatsuki because now they have done something against us. How many Akatsuki members are defects from the leaf? One Sannin who is pretty much impossible to kill compared to everyone else it doesnt seem all that bad
>>729542Clearly not shit gets done like that, so such a policy should have long since been changed.Missing nin are a problem for every country, not just the ones they came from.
Enough about gobbies and missing nin. Let's talk the real important stuff. How will Tsuki rebuild the ramen shop to attract more consumers? Free meals? Half off? Introducing a new food?
>>729571Well thats the way the world works cant blame a Kage for the way everything is.The mist gets payed to hunt down peoples missing nin, if the Leaf decided to hunt everybody else's missing nin on some kind of crusade they risk many lives as well as distributing man power so that if other villages want to they can invade/kidnap villagers for jutsu etcToo risky to waste resources on other peoples issues, after this however most villages will go on a hunt because of the danger but after that it'll just go back to normal
>>729515>But it's haaaaaard>Not weakening the village's military strength by diverting sizable resources into conducting operations in foreign territories against a shadow organization consisting of some of the strongest ninja in the world who aren't even messing with your country>This is somehow an unreasonable course of action, even though the village has finite resources and manpower.This is exactly what I mean when I say some people don't understand what it means to be a leader. It's easy to assume that he's just playing drunken darts to decide things when you have no concept of statecraft or political influences and consequences.
>>729591the one millionth customer gets to have sex with Ayame
>>729594I'm saying that every country should not only hunt down everyone's missing nin, but that they should assist each other in doing so, providing publicly their last known location, general abilities and so on.When you just leave shit like this, it festers until something like this happens.Everyone in narutoverse is retarded, i think.
When is wargle coming back?
>>729591All you need is advertisement.We covered that pretty well in the arena.Don't want it being too popular anyways, otherwise it'd be full all the time.>>729609never
>>729597And leaving them alone so that can go and drop-kick the whole village in the dick is better, sure.Nobody can just hold joint operations to take care of them, everyone has to be fucking retarded and aggressive about everything.Politicians, i swear to christ.
>>729609never ever never
>>729609When ur mum cums!For reals, though, at the weekend.
>>729620Guess what happens when you start a large multinational manhunt for missing nin?They fucking hide.
>>729606Not retarded just highly strungToo many big Shinobi Wars have happened, everybody's tense and scared of anybody getting a one up on them. It's like nuclear warfare but some nukes go loose and you gotta waste nukes to stop them. Have a junchuuriki die or a kage die and your in for tons of invasions and kidnappings. Neji's fathers death was a glimpse into this.You kill what you have to so that your village is protected anything else is insanity. The Akatsuki is a bizarre mesh of them banding together which nobody expected and I assume has never happened before. I'm sure it will change somewhat post war but even then we know shit goes south in Boruto so maybe nothing changes. It's all a cycle in Naruto after all.
>>yfw you realize that Deidara blew himself up.>> yfw you realize that we get no bounty from killing Deidara.>>tfw we can't get Iwa to pay for village repairs.
>>729639They hide anyways, they're fucking ninjas.We have ninjas too. More of them, with freedom to operate and the support of entire countries and their intelligence agencies.>>729654That's what i don't get more than anything.It's not like there are huge resource wars or anything, there are no giant smoke-clogged industrial cities churning out cheap plastic crap for the masses, it's barely steampunk-tier.Why bother warring? land? taxes? Just form a united nations and split it.
>>729662We decapitated him before he blew up.Regardless, us and our father are responsible for his death.It's not as if nobody gets paid if they decide to slit their wrists mid-battle.That's dumb. You're dumb.
>>729667>Why bother warring? land? taxes? Just form a united nations and split it.Same reason it doesn't happen irl
>>729667One of the wars was purely resource based but it doesnt specify much else on that.And some parts of Naruto has televisions, modern day cookers and other random crap. They have all kinds of monitors and advanced cloning technology, it's honestly pretty all over the place. All the cool shit goes towards war fronts for the most part but you never really see much of it.
>>729667How many S class ninjas do we have? The sort who, upon finding an Akatsuki member, won't just immediately die? Yes, we have a lot of ninjas, but hunting for Akatsuki is a bit like fighting a guerilla war against ten super-rambos.
>>729680But there's no reason to fight over resources, which are abundant.There is no overpopulation, even konoha, which is huge for this world, isn't very big.Most of the land anyone would fight over is completely empty because there's no reason to have anything there, not for farmland or anything, because there aren't lots of people.
>>729694Yeah, they flip-flop around on tech like crazy.They have VCRs but the main mode of transportation is still horse and carriage or just walking.It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but it's essentially very low tech.You know, except for when it's convenient.
>>729705I still don't understand why ninjas don't just move about the place by summoning each other, like the mage's guild.
>>729675>>His body blew up.>>Tsuki didn't grab the head when she was bailed out by Fu.>>Thinking head is still intact when its next to ground zero.You're a special kind of retard, aren't ya?
>>729713And thus norihime corp invented teleportation.>>729717We don't need the body, everyone saw.It's not exactly hard to believe that one of them died attacking the village.
Let's shift the conversation off of ninja politics What is ninja wrestling like?What type of programs do ninjas watch on t.v.?What are ninja movies like?Who is the Indiana jones of ninjas?
>>729732>Who is the Indiana jones of ninjas?Haven't we already met him?
>>729732We know about Ninja movies, the leader of the snow is a movie star
>>729732Ninjas don't watch tv.They sit alone in their room and be angsty.
Keep in mind I'm pretty sure this sort of Chuunin exams betrayal is PRETTY unprecedented. There have been a shitload of Chuunin exams.
>>729620Its not just politics, its also a military matter. Resources that Iwa is wasting hunting down Deidara are resources they're not spending on trying to snipe missions out from under Konoha. Until you have good evidence Deidara is inclined to fuck with Konoha its in Konoha's interests to just let him fucking be.
>>729804That's the attitude that got us where we are today.
>>729811You don't want to solve your enemy's problems for them, because they aren't going to turn around and solve your problems for you, they're going to cause you more problems. Sounds to me like the real idealist here... is you.
>>729861Yes, it would be ideal if we could just stop being retarded and work together as nations to take care of problems like these before they become significant instead of going HURR WHAT IF YOU BACKSTAB ME FOR SOME REASON.How about you just DON'T backstab at all.That would probably work.
>>729701>But there's no reason to fight over resources, which are abundantI think I'm starting to see why you have trouble discerning the reasons behind the behavior of the village leaders.Most nations, even in the real world, do not trust each other unconditionally. As any and all weakness can and usually will be capitalized upon by outsiders (even trusted allies), the only things that nations can truly rely on are themselves and their own resources. This gives birth to a zero-sum philosophy among world leaders with regard to international politics, balanced between their own nation and everyone else. A nation that suddenly developed powerful and advanced weaponry would thus be feared by (and likely subsequently subjected to sabotage by) other nations, even if the nation in question was trusted or allied with all the other nations. The same would be true of a nation that somehow obtained an unprecedented source of economic wealth, or one that somehow developed a means to superpower their agriculture.Nations are fearful of other nations accumulating power, because there is always the risk of that power being turned against them. The new weapons could be used against their soldiers, the strong economy could be used to manipulate international affairs, and even the bountiful agriculture could be used to develop a hegemony of economic reliance upon their favor. That is why nations are always reluctant to cheer the successes of other nations, even the ones they are allied with.Ironically, Minato himself was the one trying to overcome this innate distrust between nations, and he ended up suffering what the other nations naturally feared would happen: being brutally backstabbed by those you received in good faith.
>>729875Uh dude, I don't know if you noticed but we don't have any control over the other nations or their reactions to us. So yes, when dealing with international politics in a fucking ninja world you have to factor backstabbing into your considerations.
>>729875We're not even getting into backstabs. This is still frontstab territory.
>>729986>>730000Off yourselves. I'm above skub. I'm #4nub.
>>730017Fucking fence sitterKill yourself or chose a side
Really there were two options for Minato.go the isolationist route and build more defenses like the rain, strive for higher standarts among soldiers and make konoah a crapsack village. Won't make assets like tsunade come back like this.orrealpolitik this shit like he did. The village is gonna survive but it's gonna have to be rebuilt (wich is equivalent to improving the defenses considering the work to be done). And it's gonna be rebuilt better since in this universe we got the norihime family.The martyr complex of the population boosts the ninja recruitment drive. All potential allies rush back to the village and we get bragging rights at the impending ninja ONU.
>>731575The second thing is how we are gonna do this. Reconstruction arc go!
>>729193>>729218>carelessness> Implying that Minato's plan was any worse than Hiruzen's canon "Let these chumps attacks us so we can show off how awesome we are by kicking them in the dick when they try to backstab us."Seriously, I do not understand this attitude.The reason the plans go haywire is Orochimaru trapping Hiruzen in the barrier in canon/the Akatsuki turning up in quest.Neither of these things could have been predicted and without them happening the plan would have been fine and Sand/Sound would have gotten their faces kicked in when they walked into the trap the Leaf had lain out for them.And before someone tries to bring up the absurd notion that he's too idealistic consider that in the 3rd war his response to a battle going poorly was "Personally Kill Everyone That I Can See".And hell let's go back to this invasion;He knows it's coming and he deliberately lets them come, turning their own trap against them. Knowing full well that a bunch of low rankers and civilians are gonna get it, Minato accepted that as acceptable losses to lure in the best of Sands forces where the Leaf can swarm and overwhelm them while also taking the chance to crush the upstart Sound village.See this is what happens when you don't even try to look underneath the underneath. You take the smiling face and kind words presented and accept that as the whole of the man, letting yourselves forget that Minato is a Ninja Dictator running a village full of superhuman assassins, who has personally spilt enough blood and viscera to drown the entirety of us questors in gore. He is a nice person only by virtue of being a human blender strong enough to be merciful in a world of remorseless killers.Step it up, you're supposed to be Shinobi and Kunoichi of the Leaf and not screaming Academy dropouts.
>>731649THEY'RE NINJAS THEIR JOB IS SPYING ON PEOPLE.Getting caught by suprise is failing their one real job.
When we rebuild Ichiraku's we need to protect our investment by incorporating a security system that can turn it into an armored bunker with automatic turrets. For bonus points, don't tell Ichiraku about it, just put a big red button on the wall with a fancy safety cover that reads "In case of village assault".
>>732026If we get the contract to rebuild the village we can do that EVERYWHERE, it'll be great
>>731969Right so not knowing about the beyond secret organisation that Konoha's Master Spymaster spent years uncovering scraps about is somehow a failure.You've badly underestimated how well hidden the Akatsuki was/is. 10 ninja of Living Legend status deliberately hiding from the world just ain't gonna be found.Frankly in canon the only reason anyone knew anything of the slightest substance is that Itachi was sending out what little info he could.We don't have a spy this time.It was actually impossible to see them coming.
>>734241What it'd be is Switzerland.
>>736399Akatsuki is not THAT secret. They openly walk around the place and go shopping. AND THEY ALL WEAR UNIFORMS.Stop saying impossible like you know what it means.
>>736460>They are physically incapable of removing their uniforms for appropriate operationsPerhaps you need to reconsider what you just said.
>>736460Uniforms? What uniforms?You see a guy walking down the street wearing a nice cloak with some red clouds on it and you think 'Man what a nice looking cloak.' And then you forget about it because it's just some clothes.Literally no one is going to look at an artsy traveling cloak and think to themselves 'Yeah that's clearly the uniform of some organisation.'This is basic ninja shit. You get ignored because you're wearing cloths.
