This is Boruto Quest, a quest set in the universe of Naruto. It is during the generation of Naruto's son, several years after I haven't kept up with the series beyond the end of the original one, so this one is intended to recapture the feel of that time of Naruto. I will not be incorporating the main show or the Boruto movie's plot into the quest, although some recognizable characters will be present. You play as Takeshi. A highly capable Chunin, who is returning from years of training with Sasuke Uchiha. A new journey is starting.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyIeL-KyO2A&index=16&list=PLF7A13C44809B5893It's early in the morning. You're walking down a secluded forest road, relaxing a little after a long journey. Sarada walks quietly beside you, her hand folded behind her back. It's been two and a half years since you left to train with Sasuke Uchiha, Sarada Uchiha, Boruto Uzumaki and your team-mate Ai. You're bouncing a little bit with each step. Hopping from foot to foot. Sarada glances over, mildly annoyed by all of your energy. You've grown considerably taller in the last couple of years. You're now about 5'11.You flick out a few punches and kicks, and start to move around her in a circle as you do so. "Heh. Hehehe." She sighs. "Okay, the jumping around I get. You're excited. Stop doing it around me though! And quit giggling like that!" You turn, pivoting on your heel and face her. You throw your hands up into the air, and yell. "BUT WE'RE ALMOST BACK TO THE LAND OF FIRE!!!" Your voice rings out through the misty forest. You're passing through the Land of Waves. Sarada's eye begins to twitch slightly, and you start to take a few step back. "Right. You're probably tired from the trip. I should calm down. Right" You turn back around, and continue marching along. It's difficult to contain your energy. >A. How do you think the village has changed since we've been gone? >B. I can't wait to show everyone all my new moves! >C. When we get back, do you wanna go get something to eat? >D. Write-in

>>3168174>A. How do you think the village has changed since we've been gone?
>>3168174>A. How do you think the village has changed since we've been gone? Good to see you back, Mini.

>>3168259Glad to have you back, Mini!
"How much do you think the village has changed since we've been gone?" Sarada shrugs. "Can't be too much. We're not exactly prospering right now, you know. It's probably about the same." You nod. "Yeah, I guess you're right." You inhale deeply. The cool air fills your lungs, and you breathe out slowly still trying to contain your excitement. Sarada pulls out a map to make sure that you're still heading in the correct direction. "We're coming up on the border, pretty soon. There's one town that we have to pass through before we get there.""Right." you say. "I guess we should stay alert then." The civil war in the land of waves has developed into an issue for the rest of the world. Refugees fleeing the torn nation, and criminal organizations flooding the empty spaces. Nearly every town that you pass through here has had some form of bandit or rogue shinobi attack you. It's part of why Sasuke instructed you to pair off and travel in smaller numbers. Shinobi aren't very welcome in this land, and looking out for yourself is difficult enough. A whole team would be too cumbersome.You keep walking, until you exit the misty forest. Things are beginning to transition into the more familiar Land of Fire foliage. The village in the clearing has a single road running through it, and seems destitute and abandoned. You and Sarada calmly walk through the center. She stops. "Do you want to?" Your skin crawls. Sasuke has prevented you from fighting opponents other than him and your partners for the entire duration of your training. To say that you were itching to fight, would be an understatement. Neither of you are wearing your headbands, to stay concealed. You're still wearing your Jet Sheath and wakizashi, however. Not to mention all your other gear. To an outsider, you might just seem like a particularly well equipped traveler. Movement flickers in the shadows of the alleyways, and in the windows of the ruined buildings. They're probably going to send out their front man, and then pull an ambush.>A. Yes. >B. I'll run, and you act scared. It'll be great.>C. Let's both take 'em! We'll do this quick, we've got places to be>D. Write-in
>>3168276>>3168296Thank you very much! I'm glad to be back
>>3168304>B. I'll run, and you act scared. It'll be great.
>>3168304>A. YesLet's see what Takeshi can do after all this time. Also, holy fuck, it's back! Welcome back Mini!
>>3168304>>A. Yes.Heh, Takeshi really represents my feelings on this quest right now.
>>3168304OH, EVEN BETTER IDEA!>D. You and Sarada utilize a number of genjutsu to terrify them into submission. Go full Horror Movie. Once they've surrendered, you can just execute them for being bandits and move on.
>>3168304>I could take it or leave it. What are you feeling?
>>3168323>>3168330>>3168331A wins, update incoming.
>>3168304>>A. Yes.Also why are we alone with Sarada? Where Boruto, Ai and Sasuke?Hmm...
>>3168372Do you read?
>>3168372End of the last thread, we wandered off with The Sauce and mini-Saucette to do some training. That was the Shippuden timeskip.
>>3168393Sarada takes a few steps back, as you take a few steps forward. People start to file out of the buildings all around you. Most of them are ragged looking, and carrying weapons. The largest of them stands in the center, well over six foot six and weighing in excess of four hundred pounds. You see someone like this out in the world every now and then. An athletic giant leading his small band of followers. You look all around you, appearing somewhat distracted. The huge man, and his squad of twenty or so allies, stand in front of you. He grins. "If you're looking for somewhere to run, don't bother. We'll shoot you in the back before you take a step. Just drop all your gear, and we'll let you pass. You're close to the border anyway." The man lays a massive hand on your shoulder. He leans in and grins. "Come on. Your friend is looking real scared. Don't be stupid." You look back. Sure enough, Sarada is putting on her best quivering act. You focus on him. "You guys don't have any ninja here? That's a little disappointing.." His grip tightens suddenly, and he yanks you forward, and slams a fist into your gut. It simply bounces off of your stomach. You look up at him, not amused.>A. Beat him with your Taijutsu>B.

People seem to have forgotten that this quest's combat can only beaten via write-ins.The last time a non write-in won takeshi got his ass handed to him.
>>3168434I wouldn't call this a combat more than a presentation of our new abilities. And your write-in isn't precisely all that specific or clever.
>>3168471I know I'm just reminding people and telling the new guysSince there might be new people with good ideas, I'm not really good with combat write-ins but i am proficient in solving puzzles and predicting what an opponent will do.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZ1_C80MPEQYou stare him down. "Hey. Look at this." Slowly, but surely, you lift up your finger slowly and point it at him. The very second he makes eye contact with the tip of your finger, he is under the effects of your genjutsu. Ephemeral. Sasuke Uchiha taught you this jutsu. In the illusion, you put a big diaper on him. The sun turns red, and the sky turns black as you grow in size, a devilish grin stretching from ear to ear. Your form morphs into a true horror, the flesh rotting off of the face and blood leaking from every orifice. The flesh cracks, warps, and bends to form some sort of undead monster. It pushes him over with the tip of it's nose, pus sticking to his chest. The bandit leader looks shocked, to say the least. He starts to scream as your illusory monster roars overtop of him. Back in reality, he's fallen onto his back and is simply screaming. This jutsu takes a heavy chunk out of your chakra, but it really is amazing to use. You've experienced first hand how terrifying it can really be. It's time to take out some of your frustrations. The other bandits all grip their weapons tightly. "W-what happened!? He didn't even do any handsigns! Was that a jutsu!?" You throw your jacket off. "Nope. No jutsu. I'm an unarmed, defenseless boy. Aren't you going to rob me?" You walk towards them with utter confidence. One of them stabs his spear forward at your gut, but you lower your elbow slightly and block the shot. Sparks fly off, from the impact. It glances away harmlessly. Now that your jacket is removed, many scars can be seen on your arms, elbows, and hands. You clench your fist, and they pop and crack loudly. What are you feeling? >A. "Let this be a lesson to you. You never know what someone's real potential is." >B. "I hate scum like you. Stealing food from refugees trying to enter the border? There may be no law in this land, but I am here to judge you">C. Grin at them. "I don't expect you to do very much, but, give it your best shot!">D. Write-in
>>3168492>D. "Wu-Tang Clan ain't nothin' to fuck with."
>>3168492>C. Grin at them. "I don't expect you to do very much, but, give it your best shot!"
>>3168492>D. Beat them up and try to make them crap their pants wedgie them and tie their pants together and stick them in compromising, embarrassing and homo-erotic positions and do some kind of jitsu to make them stick like that for a day "remember kids robbing innocent people is bad!"
>>3168492>>B. "I hate scum like you. Stealing food from refugees trying to enter the border? There may be no law in this land, but I am here to judge you"A little shonen protag ham from time to time never hurts.

>>3168531Don't forget to tie them up in compromising and homo-erotic positions when you're done beating them up, and don't forget to put them in front of the road where travelers can see them.

>>3168543To appeal to salad's inner fujoshi!!!
>>3168548You just keep digging deeper dontcha?
>>3168550I will dig to the button of the earth if I have to in order to appease queen salad's extreme fujoshi fetish!!!
>>3168559>>3168548>>3168539Submitting my vote to disregard this strange man
>>3168543If you think this was bad then clearly you have not been lurking QST long enough!!! Nice quest though , I've been following this quest since it got out, but was unable to participate due to real life.
>>3168559"I hate scum like you. Stealing food from refugees trying to enter the border? There may be no law in this land, but I am here to judge you." You reach out, and the man jumps back in fear. But you dash forward, accessing a small fraction of your blazing speed. Smoothly and easily, you chop your hand through the wood of his weapon. The tip snaps off travels in an arc upwards. You spin around, and roundhouse kick it. The spear tip flies directly through the center of his forehead. You have a general policy of returning lethal force with lethal force. Some of the others throw down their weapons, but a few more still feel bold. They rush you down, with swords, knives, maces and axes. Every time a weapon is swung at you, you merely need to deflect it's course with your forearms. Sparks fly as you rapidly dodge with your head, and parry with your arms when you feel it's necessary.The amazing thing is that you're not moving your feet. Each one rushes you down simultaneously, but the astounding speed of your arms and hands shuts down every offense.Someone swipes a sword at you, and you thrust your fist out and the blade shatters. Metal shrapnel is sprayed back into his face, and he falls screaming. From behind you, Sarada yells. "Duck!" Sure enough, a crossbow bolt from one of the windows fires off at an angle. You bend at the waist just as someone rushes at you from the front, and the bolt hits them square in the chest. The axe wielder comes from the side, swinging it at your midsection in a broad arc. Yet again, you simply drop your elbow into position. Sparks fly as the metal clangs with your toughened bone and skin. The truth is that you don't even have sensation anymore in most areas, save for your palms and fingertips. You thrust the other elbow up, and crunch his nose into his skull. He falls as well, gurgling blood.The whole time, the giant man is still crying like a baby. The others all give in. By now they've certainly realized what you're capable of, and flee the village. You grin, and look at Sarada. "Cool, huh?" She rolls her eyes. "Nice moves, but that thing you said at the start? Super dorky."
You shrug. "It's important to have fun. Well, let's go meet up with the others." The pair continues down the road, leaving the small village in an even worse state than when they found it. Some of the bandits run outside and drag their wounded back in. Again, you start to throw punches at the air, all too excited for your return, and a real challenge. An hour or so later you begin to approach the border wall that was recently built, to separate the ruined peninsula from the Land of Fire. Boruto and Ai are already there. Boruto grew to be the same height as you, roughly. Ai is perhaps another inch or so taller, but she carries herself in a much more confident, mature manner. The Hokage's son waves. "Ay! What took you guys so long? We thought Sasuke was actually going to get here first, for once!" You shrug. "Ahh, you know. Usual business." >A. Did you guys run into any trouble on your way? >B. This land has really gotten messed up over the years. I bet we'll have lots of missions here>C. Someone's gotta clean up the trash around here, am I right? >D. Write-in

>>3168639>>3168640>>3168647>>3168636>>3168629>>3168622"Did you guys run into any trouble on the way here?" Boruto shook his head. "Nope." Ai continued. "There was a small village, but we assumed that it would be full of bandits. We just went around it."Sarada smiled. "Yeah, same for us. I was thinking of telling Takeshi that, but I imagined that he'd want to fight no matter what." You grin. "That's right, I-" As suddenly as always, Sasuke is here now. He just warps around, so you never hear him arrive. Though he's not really all that much bigger, it feels like he towers over you as he speaks. He's calm and collected, but the years of brutal training force your spine to tingle regardless. "I told you guys to avoid trouble. That's why we split up in the first place." >A. I-Uh, yeah, well, we-Sarada was.. They were robbing refugees! >B. We took care of the bandits though! >C. Oh, yeah. I guess it is kind of a, political situation right now.. >D. Write-in
>>3168688I had to cancel it because I realized I wasn't going to be able to feasibly run that in a short amount of time like I wanted. I'm going to put it on the backburner until I finish Boruto Quest. Apologies for changing my plans so much.

>>3168756>Now if only Wargle could get some free time...Agreed
>>3168734Don't be rude to our future father-in-law
"Oh, yeah. I guess it is kind of a, political situation right now. ..." As usual, Sasuke doesn't say anything beyond that. He simply starts to walk towards the border. "Let's get a move on."Just a few more hours, and your small group has arrived once more at the gates of the Hidden Leaf Village. It's difficult to contain yourself. You've never been away from home for so long before. You remember feeling somewhat frustrated with your career for a time before you defeated Shozuku, but now it seems like the whole world is open to you. The guards let you through, and the five of you stand in a circle. Sasuke starts. "Well, I guess this is where we go our separate ways everyone. When I started this whole thing, I figured it'd be a huge pain in the ass. But you all exceeded my expectations." He smiles, genuinely. It's one of the very few times you've ever seen him do so, let alone such a genuine compliment. At once, the four of you bow. Three of you start to walk away, but Sarada embraces her father for a few short moments. As you walk away, you can hear them exchanging further goodbyes. As you're walking away to go to your brother, you notice that Ai is starting to head towards her own home.You pause. "Hey, where you going?" She turns. "Hm?" "Aren't we going to go see Kichiro together, before I go see my bro?" She grins. "Sure. Sounds great." The two of you head to his place, remarking on the small changes in the village. Overral, Sarada was right. It's more or less the same. You knock on Kichiro's door, and a few minutes later, a young Genin girl with bright red, fiery hair answers the door. She furrows her brow at first, looking annoyed, but then her eyes go wide. It's Kichiro's little sister, Asuka. "BIG BROOOOOOO!!!!!" she yells, at the top of her lungs.Ai looks at you, surprised with wide eyes. You also do the same to her. A deep rumbling starts up in the upper floor of their apartment, and seconds later, it sounds like a rhinoceros is crashing through the home. From behind Asuka, you see a massive figure land at the bottom of the steps, shaking the room. Asuka steps to the side, and Kichiro bursts through the door, picking you and Ai up in both arms.He's absolutely massive now. Well over six foot four, and probably weighing about two hundred and fifty pounds of sheer muscle. He's squeezing the life out of you. "You guys!!! You're finally back, I can't believe it!" >A. You're fucking huge >B. I thought I trained hard>C. Please stop killing Ai >D. Write-in
>>3168832>A. You're fucking huge >B. I thought I trained hardThe absolute size of this lad.

I wonder how well Mari's "character"developed?
>>3168932What about Himawari?
>>3168932....Band-aids are such a shit thing to use as an accesory
"You're fucking huge." you say, gasping between words. He lets you both go, and rubs the back of his head. "Heh. Sorry. I really don't know my own strength, I'm not used to having doubled in size yet." Ai looks at Asuka. They stare at each other for a few seconds. "Bullshit.." mutters Ai. This surprises you a great deal. "Huh?" "Bullshit." she says. She points at Asuka. "She's taller than I am too!" Sure enough, Asuka is in fact about 5'6 to Ai's 5'4. Asuka slyly brings her fingers up to her face, to partially hide a grin. "Ohh, how unfortunate." Ai's eyes narrow. "I thought I trained hard, man. You're huge. I'm not so sure I still wanna spar, anymore!" Kichiro nods. "I'm sure we'll get the chance to show off everything we've learned." The sound of footsteps can be heard behind you. You and Ai take a step back so Kichiro can see, and sure enough, your old Sensei Hanto is approaching. He gives a small wave. "Yo." His breath stinks of alcohol, as normal, and he stumbles slightly. He always catches himself, though. "Look at you two... I knew Kichiro changed a lot, but man. I really feel old right now. Before you get settled in and comfortable, how about.." He grins, and takes a single bell out of his pocket. "A free for all! Whoever gets this bell, has improved the most!!" He launches off into the sky, bouncing between the buildings before dashing off onto the roofs. You didn't even have a chance to say hello before he darted. The three of you all look at each other briefly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gcshz4lBJPQKichiro blasts off first, scorching his front door and knocking his sister over as she yelps. Ai also leaps off, opting to dart through the roads below instead. You look back at Asuka, who's tumbled all the way to the back of the room. She yells at you. "Go get the bell, dummy! Kichiro won't forgive you if you take it easy!!" You give her a thumbs up. "Right!" Using all of your speed, you jump high into the air and get a good look at the Hidden Leaf Village for the first time since you've returned. The skyline is the same as ever, the air fresh, and the people strong. This is your home, and you're finally back. Now it's time to do what you do best. ----That's all for tonight folks. I hope you've enjoyed this sort return. I'll be running again, Saturday night! I'll stick around for any questions
>>3168958Great thread man
>>3168958Sad I missed the votes but it's great seeing this come back. Can't wait for next session, but weren't you planning on doing a new quest before starting up the timeskip?
Welcome back and thanks for running
>>3168963Thanks anon.>>3168973I was, but as usual I was having trouble with work and stuff and I needed to focus on making money instead of any hobbies. However now I have like a month solid of free time. Instead of using that time to star The Fighting Quest, I figured I might as well begin Boruto Quest Part 2.I know some people were itching for it to continue, and The Fighting Quest was going to take considerably longer than I anticipated. I will return to it, maybe when I'm done with this, but for now this takes precedent to me. I still really want to do it, but I want to fulfill my obligations to the people reading this quest first. Apologies for my change in plans.
>>3168958Thanks for running, Mini!
>>3168988No problem, glad you liked it. It was a little barebones to just get back in the swing of things for me, but saturday I have a lot more ideas to work off of.
>>3168984Nothing to apologize for, I'm happy to see this back.
There aren't any good quests anymore, so I'm genuinely happy to see you return.
>>3169405Joker Quest is still running. Pokemon Urban is great and the QM just started running again following a holiday hiatus. No One Gets Left behind is good as well as Hikkimori Quest. Bloody Mist is another good Nart quest currently running.
>>3169462these, plus it's still only on three threads but the worm wendigo quest has been going well so far.
>>3169480>>3169462I gotta give Joker Quest OP props for STILL going, but his inconsistent runtimes really makes it hard to feel invested. New worm quest is interesting, hopefully the OP learns to proofread a little better though. I dunno friends, RIP Banished, Homeless Mutant, etc. Is Take to the Skies still going?
>>3169405Deep Red, Symbiote Quest.>>3169493RIP HMQ
>>3169405Thank you for your praise. I'm sure there are some other good ones though.
>>3169493Man I get the love for HMQ, I really do Bless Crusty, may he rest in peace but it's been years at this point. You just gotta move on and accept that most quests just aren't gonna stack up to it.
>>3169493In to the Skies is still going. Kinda stopped following but will binge after it is done. Most of Molochs' stuff has been good, IMHO.>>3169498>Deep RedAre you talking about the Avatar quest on Anonkun? Pretty boring plus degenerate yuri. There are a few good quests on that site but they are almost all inconsistent with when they run or are half-dead/on hiatus.
>>3169599>Are you talking about the Avatar quest on Anonkun? Pretty boring plus degenerate yuri.HahahaHAHAHAH. The things you are missing out.
>>3169599>pretty boringI quite disagree. Especially with the salt explosion in the recent thread.
>>3169603Deep Red has to be the most shilled Akun quest I've ever seen,
>>3169606It's pretty meh
>>3169017Surprised you skipped over The Fighting, but It makes sense. Glad to see you back Mini!
>>3169670Thanks anon, glad to be back
>>3169405Maverick lives again, so that’s good for once a month
Hell yes, i'm pumped that you're running again!
Mini's back! Really hype seeing this again.Second date with Mari when?

Oh, I forgot to mention at the end of last thread. Here is my twitter, pretty much the only way I stay in touch. https://twitter.com/Miniseries_Anon
You land, and survey the situation in front of you. Hanto is heading back towards the village gates, intending to take this to the training field most likely. You were kind of expecting something like this, but not so suddenly. He must have been watching eagerly for you to return. Kichiro is rocketing from rooftop to rooftop, using his Dragon Boxing to boost his speed. Hanto can be seen doing the same even further ahead. They're already pretty far way. Taking a deep breath, you crouch down, and take a runner's stance. Going full speed like this is always a pleasure. You slide your goggles onto your face. The ones that you'd gotten from your time with the Great Owls. From the previous Owl Sage. Keeps the wind out of your face.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kQWQiMypjcIf anyone was watching, there'd be no indication that you'd just taken off. Your afterimage fades out of the air, and in a few moments you're caught up with Kichiro. You're right on his heels, the flames pushing you back slightly. With a leap, you flip over the top of him and tap the top of his head. Landing in front, you dash even faster than before using Shunshin. Now you're like a human missile, tucking your arms against your side to prevent drag. Traveling in a huge arc over the village, you take another chance to survey your surroundings. Clicking a knob on the side of your goggles, you zoom in to the streets down below and see Ai navigating it expertly. She's cutting to the left, and intending to beat everyone to the training field and anticipate Hanto. Flipping around, you look at Kichiro once more. Your eyes go wide. He's blasting for you, and tackles you out of the air and throws you down and to the side, spinning wildly out of control.

IT IS TIME

>>3173742>>3173756>>3173772Update incoming.For those who aren't aware, if things are slow and people seem to agree, I'll often end the voting period a little bit early.
You focus, and go through a few handseals as you twist to right yourself. You launch a burst of chakra towards Kichiro, hoping to strike him with your Genjutsu. It's difficult to time, but you try to catch him before he goes out of range. The technique is successful thankfully, and you divert your attention back towards the ground. Bouncing between the walls of the old part of the village, you break your fall and land into a running sprint. Breaking out through an alleyway, you spot Ai darting towards the village wall. As fast as you are, she's every bit as fast. With her lead ahead of you, you're going to have to get creative. She's too far away to hit with any type of jutsu, at this point. Sprinting ahead, you plan while you move. She's going to have to climb up the wall, and as she changes angles you'll have a moment where you might be able to intercept her path. >A. Use Shunshin as she starts up the wall, and catch up with her. >B. Use Boil Release: Soap Style: Soap Spray to make the path ahead of her slick.>C. Use Water Style: Starch Syrup Capture Field to try and trap her>D. Take this moment to use Summoning Jutsu, and summon Danpei. Allow yourself to follow behind Ai, and have Danpei scout. >E. Write-in
>>3173715>no soap dragon jutsuI now have a goal this time around>that 4.0 speed thoughNice
>>3173808>>D. Take this moment to use Summoning Jutsu, and summon Danpei. Allow yourself to follow behind Ai, and have Danpei scoutRemember, the name of the game is grabbing that bell, don't get too caught up In the race if it leaves us easy to target.
>>3173808>C. Use Water Style: Starch Syrup Capture Field to try and trap herAny time spent getting unstuck is time she loses for getting the bell, and time we gain without having to worry about Ai. Also less chakra intensive than Boil release/Summoning I assume.
>>3173808>Soap Style>No Base StyleI'll let it slide, but it's a missed opportunity>D. Take this moment to use Summoning Jutsu, and summon Danpei. Allow yourself to follow behind Ai, and have Danpei scout.
>>3173833You're correct in that. Next thread I'm going to add a little more to your stats page. Add things like Chakra Cost to give you a rough idea how much each technique will take. They'll be ranked like thisE- Too small of a drain to matterD- small drainC- medium drainB- medium-large drainA- large drainS- massive drain
>>3173876You're god damn right.
>>3173808>D. Take this moment to use Summoning Jutsu, and summon Danpei. Allow yourself to follow behind Ai, and have Danpei scout. Long game baby.>>3173715Oh *hell* yes. I'm surprised our stats aren't a bit higher, but that could be because I'm just a greedy bastard.
>>3173912Well, your stats were actually "reset" in a sense. They're a reflection of how you compare to your peers, as opposed to a hard statistic. They've improved more than is immediately apparent. This means that your speed went up, pretty astronomically really.
>>3173715>https://pastebin.com/KBPZXD6k>Strength: 2.5> 2.5
>>3173929Nevermind, long live god-king Takeshi.
You bite your thumb to draw a little blood, and perform the Summoning Jutsu. Danpei appears in a puff of smoke. He's a rather large owl, capable of performing modest air support. He was kind of grumpy when you first met him, but over the years you've gotten to know each other quite well. At the moment he seems to be napping.Ruffling the feathers on the back of his neck, he wakes up and spins his head to look at you. Glancing up, Ai is making her way up the wall. Danpei's head spins all around. "Hey! You're back in the Leaf Village now." You nod. "Yup. My sensei Hanto is testing us. Can you do me a favor, and go ahead of me and track Ai? Report back to me if she stops, or starts to do anything suspicious. Ai flips over the wall at the top, and makes her way to the field. In the distance, where Kichiro and Hanto were, you hear a loud commotion. Some kind of explosion went off. You seriously doubt that Kichiro already caught up to him, especially with your Genjutsu, but it could be worth investigating. >A. Keep following Ai, and prepare to ambush her ambush on Hanto.>B. Go after Kichiro and investigate
>>3173962>>A. Keep following Ai, and prepare to ambush her ambush on Hanto.I heard you like ambushes so we put an ambush in an ambush
On paper Asuka and Takeshi can both have 2.5 STR, but in different classes of power.In truth we are almost a full 5 points stronger than she would theoretically be.
>>3173962>>A. Keep following Ai, and prepare to ambush her ambush on Hanto.
>>3173929so how would part 1 Takeshi compare to the MK II ?
>>3173962>B. Go after Kichiro and investigateWe already have eyes on Ai, let's keep tabs on the others now. Even If she manages to spot and eliminate Danpei, we should at least be aware of him being de-summoned through damage.
>>3173995Well, you know how when you took off your weights, and you were almost at the max speed stat at the time? You're *much* faster than that now, without ever having to take off your weights. For strength, you're not exceptional but not weak. Your punches do more damage because of the high speed they travel at, and having hard as steel knuckles. So while your strength hasn't actually gone up much (normal for a Chunin of your age), you could knock a normal human being's jaw off with no effort. Your Chakra Control is exceptional as well. Your healing capabilities are far more efficient than they were before. Your Genjutsu didn't go up that much in terms of raw capability, but you did manage to learn Ephemeral with severe training. Which is one of the strongest Genjutsu there is, simply because of how versatile and sneaky it is. So on and so forth. Your Ninjutsu skill has also gone up considerably, becoming more efficient at both fire and boil style techniques.
>>3174029but Mini? what about the soap?
>>3174043Boil release = Soap release, it's a sub branch of it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaRCMsM54aI&list=PLF7A13C44809B5893&index=45Deciding that it'd be best to play the long game instead of getting distracted, you keep after Ai. Traveling up the wall, you make it just in time to notice that she's created two different clones. They all take off in different directions. You instruct Danpei to follow the real Ai. For now, you'll just have to lag behind and watch. More commotion can be heard in the distance, but it's getting farther and farther away. Taking it slow, you try your best to track one of the clones as you head towards the training field. It's possible that it was merely intended to be a distraction in case you decided to follow her, but you can't take the risk that they're part of a longer game. The clone slows down and stops for a few seconds, and you throw a senbon right into it's neck. It explodes in a burst of electricity, scorching the earth around it. You wince. You've been hit by way too many of those things, coming from Ai, Sarada, and Sasuke. Now, you keep your pace as you approach the field. Danpei swoops down and perches on a branch above you. "She's hiding in the trees, along with her other clone. She noticed me in the air, of course. She's probably expecting you to do something. You nod. "Yeah. I knew that when I blew up her clone. I'm thinking I might pull out a classic. You just keep an eye on my backside, Danpei." He flies back into the air, and you make your way to the bushes of the training ground. Hanto lands, scraping against the dirt as he does so. Kichiro lands directly after him, and they exchange a series of thundering punches. Blue and red flames mix as they tangle, rumbling the ground underneath your feet. It seems like Kichiro's raw destructive power can tangle with your sensei's. What do you want to do?>A. Set up your Paralysis Bells, and wait for Ai to make a move. You might be able to swoop in and take the bell while they're frozen.>B. Send out Water Clones and Haze Clones, but remain hidden. >C. Use your speed and taijutsu, and go out there and try to take the bell directly. Your hardened limbs can deal with the fire from their attacks. >D. Write-in
>>3174114>B. Send out Water Clones and Haze Clones, but remain hidden.
>>3174114>B. Send out Water Clones and Haze Clones, but remain hidden.Force him out of the area to us
>>3174114>C. Use your speed and taijutsu, and go out there and try to take the bell directly. Your hardened limbs can deal with the fire from their attacks.
>>3174114>D. Get close enough to use Roof Tile Shuriken Jutsu to just take the bell while they're fighting.We basically have telekinesis for small objects, and I'm certain that a bell counts.
>>3174114>B. Send out Water Clones and Haze Clones, but remain hidden. Too early for the big guns.
Just spitballing some strategy here, but can you use water clones to fuel water-style jutsu? We could scatter a bunch of clones and use them to strategically or spontaneously place starch syrup capture fields.Unless of course, we can't utilze them that way from afar, that would be tragic.
Takeshi would take Australia if he played Risk
>>3174193Unfortunately not, Starch Syrup Capture Field comes from your mouth as a spray. Other Jutsu that don't have to originate from you, could be used that way though. For example, if you learned Water Shark Bomb Jutsu and had created enough clones to supply water for that, it would work.
>>3174126>>3174156>>3174170>>3174173Update incoming>>3174166I want to note that it is possible to move this bell with this jutsu, provided you got a bit closer
>>3174200Good to know, thanks Mini.>>3174197I suppose In the Naruto verse that means he would prefer the land of water.
>>3174231Land of Water or the Land of Waves?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQQ6QBmRAFA&index=6&list=PLF7A13C44809B5893You create five Water Clones, and about two dozen Haze Clones. They spread around the perimeter of the field on the ground, and wait for a gap in the action. At once, they all rush in. Kichiro and Hanto glance around them for a second, and grin. They return to their combat and simply let the flames surrounding them push your clones back, at first. However, one of the Water Clones charges in and jumps on Kichiro's back, briefly dousing the flames. A Haze Clone then rushes at him at from the front, and he punches directly through it with another burst of flame. It passes through and flies to Hanto, who jumps high into the air. At once, from behind him, Ai leaps from the trees. He senses her and spins around with a whipping kick, sending an arc of blue fire. She's struck, and the clone explodes in a harmless burst of electricity. From the other side, Ai dashes in again. This actually reminds you of the situation during your first test with Hanto. Almost identically, even. So far. Another one of your Water Clones rushes at Kichiro, and he punches the ground below him and creates a violent explosion. It destroys a couple of your clones, and knocks Hanto and Ai out of balance in the air. Ai throws a shuriken with wires around it, and it wraps around the ankle of your sensei. She pulls hard and yanks him over her head, intending to slam him down into the ground.Hanto flips, and lands with his palms on the ground. From this position he spin and hits the ground, break dancing so that blue whips of fire push both Ai and Kichiro back. All but one of your clones are destroyed, but the Haze Clones are still present on the field after they reform.It seems like your Sensei is still too fast, strong, and dangerous to approach directly. The last of your Water Clones has retreated and returned to you. What do you want to do?>A. Wait for a moment where he's distracted by Ai and Kichiro, and rush in with with the Roof Tile Shuriken Jutsu. Using your Haze Clones as additional distractions, you try to take the bell.>B. Set up your Paralysis Bells, and dash out and take it.>C. Surprise them. Have the Water Clone take an angle on the side using Water Bullets from cover, and have Danpei attack from the other end with Wind Bullets. Then use Boil Release: Soap Style: Bubble Bomb>D. Write-in
>>3174318>B. Set up your Paralysis Bells, and dash out and take it.Now that all the pieces are in play, we play a trump card. Even If it fails, the secondary effect will be very useful going forward.

>>3174340>>3174345https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTrhd5SBBpc&list=PLF7A13C44809B5893&index=23You nod to your clone, and as Danpei circles above, you make a series of hand motions to him. He understands that you intend for him to attack from behind, at an angle. He circles around slowly, and as the clone gets into position. Going through a number of handsigns, you perform one of your very own unique techniques. After much struggling, you invented this. No one else in the entire world can do what you're about to do. It's pretty much impossible for you to not grin with pride. A shiny bubble forms in the palm of your hand, and it grows in size until it's roughly equal to a soccer ball. You lob it back and forth between your hands, a rainbow sheen glistening on top of it. Ai and Kichiro stand off with your Sensei, in front of you. Crouching down, you get ready to use your full speed once more. From the left, your Water Clone fires off Water Bullets and pushes Ai back. Hanto looks behind him, and blasts it with a burst of blue fire.From the other end, Danpei swoops down and shoots several bullets of wind. Kichiro jumps into the air to avoid them, and launches several bursts of fire at the owl. He tucks his wings next to him and spins, narrowly avoiding the attack. Now, you take your chance. Leaping forward, you dash into the air above all of them in the center. You dunk the bubble straight down.Hanto turns back just in time to see it landing about ten feet away from him. He cocks an eyebrow, confused by the single bubble. It falls almost delicately, before touching a blade of grass. The violent concussive explosion sends them all flying, even going so far as to slam Hanto into a tree. Kichiro spins wildly out of control into the woods, and Ai falls into the pond. Now's your best chance! >A. Use your Jet Sheath to dash at your Sensei directly and grab the bell while he's stunned>B. Order Danpei to circle around and blast Hanto with Wind Bullets while you land, to keep him occupied. Use the Roof Tile Shuriken Jutsu to grab the bell, running past him.>C. Summon a few more Water Clones below you, using the water from earlier. Have one of them leap up and throw you at your Sensei, while the others engage him directly.

>>3174465>>A. Use your Jet Sheath to dash at your Sensei directly and grab the bell while he's stunnedwind feeds fire
>>3174539Normally, you would be correct. Your Sensei is rather unique though. It's essentially a non-elemental form of fire. Raw chakra that can burn stuff. He can also pick and choose what it does and doesn't burn. This comes from him absorbing some of Kaguya's chakra. His mother created a sword out of a meteorite, and always kept the sword on her person. While she was pregnant, Hanto absorbed the sword's moon chakra in the womb. Later in life this manifested as his unique abilities. Chakra and stamina that could match a Jinchuriki, and the various techniques he's developed from this unique Chakra.It's kind of similar to the abilities of that one village, who gained power from a meteorite as well.

>>3174465>>3174557>B. Order Danpei to circle around and blast Hanto with Wind Bullets while you land, to keep him occupied. Use the Roof Tile Shuriken Jutsu to grab the bell, running past him.
You make a circle motion with your finger, and Danpei loops around to slam Wind Bullets into Hanto. Your Sensei puts his arms up and blocks the attack, holding him in place. Landing, you take a brief glance around and notice Ai climbing out of the water and Kichiro rushing back in. It's now or never, more or less.Dashing forward at top speed, you throw a shuriken forward. Hanto knocks it aside, and then punches a blast of blue fire in your direction. Anticipating this, you slip to the side and form several handsigns. The Roof Tile Shuriken Jutsu. You kneel down, and launch yourself forward again. Dashing past Hanto, you hold out a single hand and telekinetically pull the bell off of Hanto's waist, and into your palm. Skidding to a stop, you turn around and start walking towards your allies. You've got a large grin on your face. Everyone else is panting, except for you. Even your Sensei, who probably worked himself rather hard against Kichiro. Kichiro frowns. "That was bullshit." >A.

Also, we need to work on a better method of delivery for the Bubble. Just creating it and only being able to lob it isn't the best, especially considering it's, ya know, a soap bubble. Those don't go very far when thrown.
>>3174753Danpei + Soap Bubble - Air support no jutsuSome petty water gun jutsu + soap bubble (Assuming that wouldn't be enough to burst it) - Grenade launcher no jutsuEngineer a bubble variant that emits a haze of chemical mist when popped and we've got ourselves a pocket warcrime.
on a completely unrelated note, Killer B is the man
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKCaqDZFJ7o&index=32&list=PLF7A13C44809B5893"Actually, Kichiro, that was Soap Style: Bubble Bomb Jutsu. Made it myself!" He rolls his eyes. "I figured that."You rub the back of your head. "Hehehe. Good game, guys." Hanto sits down, and takes a big swig of his flask. "Hell. Maybe I should have been sober for this one. Or more drunk, not sure. Either way, great job, everyone. Your fundamentals have come a long way." "Why didn't you go all out though, Ai?" you ask. She shrugs her shoulders. "Well, I didn't really have a chance to yet. I was waiting for an opportunity once you made your move, but it never came. Didn't think you'd use the environment like that to make your own opportunity.""What about you, Kichiro? How'd you get out of my Genjutsu?"He blinks. "Genjutsu? Eh?"Hanto chuckles. "I probably knocked him out of that one. Don't know if you heard it, but I gave him a nice axe kick on the way here. Probably went about four feet underground." Kichiro coughs. "Slowed me down for a couple of minutes." You grin. "I see."It's quiet for a few moments, as the wind moves through the trees. You look at the tiny bell in your hand, and squeeze it tightly. Hanto coughs. "Kichiro, Ai, I was thinking we could go grab a bite to eat. Takeshi, shouldn't you be heading home by now?" You look up. "Yeah. I'll see you guys around!" It's time to say hi to your big bro, and your folks too.---That's all for tonight, folks. Again, a little shorter than I would have liked but I started a bit late. The next thread will begin earlier so I don't get pooped. I'll stick around to answer some questions. I hope everyone enjoyed this brief contest.
>>3174783>It's time to say hi to your big bro, and your folks too.Huh? I thought we lived with bro because our parents are deeeeaad.And yes Mini, this was fun. Glad the roof-tile Jutsu was useful this fight. I was worried It wouldn't get the bell off the string.
>>3174783Thanks for running, Mini!
>>3174783I'd ask how the rest of the class has been doing, but I feel like that's gonna get answered next thread. Too tired to write up some impressions the characters we've met so far feel about Takeshi? Bort and Salad's must have changed dramatically due to knowing/interacting with us for so long.
>>3174812>"I still can't believe I lost to this goober"
>>3174799Your parents are dead, yes. I was referring to the shrine of them. Tell them all your adventures. >>3174812Yeah, we'll get to that soon. You did bond a lot with both Boruto and (I almost wrote Salad) Sarada. Sarada still thinks you're a little coocoo, but she also trusts you more completely now. You've got Boruto's total respect if you didn't have it before, and he's actually a pretty good friend. Much smarter and calmer, which he kind of got from you and Sasuke.
>>3174835Aw, as nice as upping that S-link is, I'll miss the tinfoilhat and shadowrunning she'd do when she didn't trust Takeshi.
>>3174862Now she understands that it's simply the way you are. What's even better is Ai and her talking about you and Boruto
>>3174835>Your parents are dead, yes. I was referring to the shrine of them. Tell them all your adventures.That's both sad and touching.Mini I do have two questions, actually.What does Soap style: Soften do?What does Soap style: Soap spray do? (Is it the jutsu we had pre-timeskip?)Now I was thinking, unless we get a mission right away how should we spend our time? I'd like to acquire shadow clones as soon as possible, but I don't think we're officially allowed to learn them until we hit Jonin, but we need to be completely prepared for before we go and attempt the test, since I believe we get one shot. I'd be up for learning some more water style jutsu, like Water Prison jutsu and the Hiding in Water technique.
>>3174878Soap Style: Soften essentially coats you and your clothing in a super slippery layer of soap. Physical attacks will have all of their force deflected somewhat. People's punches will slide right off of your face with no impact, provided you angle it slightly. You'll be getting a mission fairly soon, and you do need to hit Jounin before being allowed to learn Shadow Clones. Next thread I imagine will be spent seeing how everyone is doing. Once you return from your mission you'll have an opportunity to do whatever you want with your time. Soap Style: Soap Spray is similar to Starch Syrup Capture field. Except it sprays soapy foam on the ground to cause someone or something to slip.
>>3174878Personally, I kinda want to meet back up with our old buddies to see their post timeskip selves. Some downtime before big training you know?However, when we do get back into it, investing into more Boil release shit is my personal number 1. We haven't been able to break out of Soap style stuff yet, once we do the entire world of chemistry opens up to us which is insanely versatile.
Oh, I forgot to mention. Next thread is this Tuesday.
>>3174897How many Killer B albums does Takeshi own? How many of his songs are about the time he beat the shit out of Sasuke?
>>3174908Killer B's musical career begun and ended with his hit song, "Hit 'Em Up", in which he disses every single Uchiha in history and claims he fucked their wives too. After that he was never able to recapture the audience. This single is played on the radio near constantly
>>3174897Both of those Jutsu sound great, I can't wait to smugly use Soften against some jacked up taijutsu Nin.>>3174901Definitely, gotta see how everyone else did over the timeskip, maybe play a game of shogi for old times sake.>>3174902Nice, thanks Mini.>>3174908 Zero, because we've been traveling with Sausuke.
>>3174929what a hero>>3174940what a zero
>>3174959Hush anon. We all enjoy shitting on Uchiha in this boat. Watch this and learn. Sarada worst girl.
>>3174970Better than Ai at least.And uh... that sword girl. Yasu! Yeah it was Yasu.
>>3174970I disagree but support your right to have this opinion. Could I attend more threads while they’re active, I would fight hard for Sarada. Sadly, work beckons
>>3174970That's why we introduce better genes in their pool anon.
>>3175029it will take generations to get the Sasuke and Sakura genes out
>>3175031One dick at a time, Takeshi is the head the uchiha need.
>>3175040sharingan+autism=OP pls nerf
Hey mini, in the pastebin, why does the Great Fireball jutsu still need practice? I'd assume we'd have gotten the hang of it over the last few years.
>>3175048Oh woops, that's a mistake. You have in fact mastered it.
>>3175063it would be kind of funny if an elite ninja just can't do like one simple jutsu
>>3175072You are pretty elite. You've come a long way
Is Boruto worth watching and or reading?
>>3175155Don't know! I actually went out of my way to avoid Boruto related content, aside from inspiration for techniques or abilities.
Man, this damn quest is so good. Thanks for running!
>>3175205>>3175155Trust me you did yourself a favor. It's pretty shit
>>3174997It's been a hot minute, who was best girl again?Last I recall, we were trying to bro it up with sword girl, Ai was taking root in the sisteru category and Byakugan battle brawlers was at the head of the pack for the waifubowl with Salad Dressing catching up.
>>3175762Seemed pretty even between Mari and Salad, with a few turbo autists pushing for Ai. We've completely forgotten about sword girl, she's probably behind the fucking Inazuka at this point. To me though, Mari's got some good chemistry, and makes the most sense from a story perspective.If where you left off swordgirl was still relevant, then you probably missed a lot.
>>3175790No I read up til the end, I must've forgot some stuff is all. Thought our last mission with her was closer to the timeskip than it must've been.
>>3175762>who was best girl again?Mari.Mari is best girl.I'm looking forward to playing out Takeshi's jaw dropping when he sees how she's... developed.
>>3175790I was totally in Ai's camp until we turned out to be a doppleganger of her brother. That just made it all kinds of weird.
>>3176989Keep in mind. It’s a fifty fifty chance of Hinatatas or Itty Hanabitty Titty.
>>3176989I thought she was too, I thought I'd forgotten some major turnabout that put Salada ahead.
>>3177245It' less that you look exactly alike and more that you both have the appearance of "Non-descript japanese boy." The more the quest went on the more the consequences of your actions caused your appearances to diverge. He became sickly and unhinged, while you got stronger and more confident. It was all about your mindsets
>>3175762Salad. Not to say that Mari is bad, I just prefer the Salad.
>>3179663So, have we seen any of our contemporaries and friends over the years?
>>3179663Mini, you don't need to make excuses for your incest fetish, but we're not obligated to play along.
>>3179681Other than Sasuke, Sarada, Boruto, and Ai, not really. You would often go and visit the Owl village in order to train with them to some extent. Next thread you'll get to see a new owl summon that you're capable of. Aside from that, you stuck to the remote wilderness. Sasuke would often pit you against each other in Forest of Death esque competition, combating both each other and the wildlife. >>3179686I should have foreseen this.
>>3179692How'd the competitions normally go?
>>3179698In the start, you and Boruto were actually both ahead considerably. Your speed and the huge amount of variety in your strategy kept you going. Ai and Sarada developed new techniques though, and Sarada in particular unlocked the third stage of her Sharingan. once that happened, you were the one who fell behind. For a long time, until your training began to pay off. Boruto cracked down more on his fundamentals, and Ai improved upon many jutsu she already knew. This was the most difficult time for you, as you were breaking down your body to create the iron hard extremities, as well as being broken mentally as a subject of Sasuke's Genjutsu. But you toughed it out, and once your new skills and the new techniques you invented came into play, and your chakra pool and body got larger, you were able to keep up with all of them.In one on one competitions you would rarely, very rarely win. However, in a team battle, if someone had you on their side, you won almost all the time.
>>3179729Makes sense, frankly it always did feel like the top brass were grooming Takeshi a bit more for a leadership position as he gpt older. Hell Shikamaru outright wants and expectd him to eventually move up and join the intel and interrogation branch. I don't know about hokage or whatever but we're definitely in for a senior position in the future if we wanted it. Hell I could see Takeshi easily becoming the hokage's second in command as jounin commander and probably even part of the ruling council when he's an old man. Of course that's way far in the future, for now my short term goals are to build up our jutsu, create more soap jutsu (soap dragon jutsu is the dream baby), and make jounin quick.
>>3179824We need to break out of just Soap jutsu and figure out how to make other chemicals. That's when the real party starts.
>>3179857It'll be ironic if Takeshi ends up being called Agent Orange and not Naruto or Boruto.
>>3179824>not being in charge of the academy and raising the general standard of Leaf Genin
>>3174869>What's even better is Ai and her talking about you and BorutoAre we just going to ignore mini dropping this right there in the middle of the table?
>>3179866I don't get it.>>3179989Huh, I completely missed that. Oh well Takeshi will never know.And I doubt we will either.
If the 3rd Hokage learned 1,000 jutsu then I want Takeshi to learn 1,004
I was hoping to run at 6 PM today but I'm running a little late, so it'll be 7 again.
>>3180974I don't care, I'm just happy you're back.
>>3180974I'm just happy the quest is running.
After such a long day, you finally make it back home. Your apartment building is the same as ever. It really amazes you that the Leaf Village hasn't changed, considering the turbulent situation in the world outside of it's walls. Many of the small villages and towns that you've visited have become rather destitute, as of late. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2oql-D7euc&index=20&list=PLF7A13C44809B5893You exchanged a few letters with your brother while you were gone, but minimal contact was encouraged by Sasuke. Making your way through the building, you unlock the door to your home with anticipation building inside of you. It's been years since you've seen him. However, the room is quiet and dark. You turn on the light, and look around. Things are, again, more or less the same. Your brother doesn't seem to be home. He's probably at work, guarding the walls of the village as a sensory ninja. You sigh. It's a little disappointing, but you should have known better. He always works twelve hour shifts, so it's no surprise he's not here. Instead, you drop off your gear and get undressed. Slipping into some comfortable pajamas, you sink into the couch with a heavy sigh. The comforts of modern life never gripped you that tightly, but you have to admit that you're seriously going to enjoy having a shower available at all times. As well as a bed.Taking some time to yourself, and enjoying the peace and quiet, you prepare to go visit your parents. Treading lightly as always, as if afraid to wake someone who is sleeping, you unlock the door and slip into the room. Kneeling down, you look at their pictures and light a candle. You place your hands on your knees, and look down at the floor. Hot tears start to stream down your face, as all of the emotion that you've kept inside of you spills out. You're known for always keeping your cool, and having a level head. Keeping the mood light and being kind. But in here, in your most sacred of places, you can really express your truest feelings. "Mom...Dad. I wish you were here so you could see me. I know you're out there watching me somewhere, but, through these years..." You choke and stutter. Placing your palms on the floor, you bow. "I hope I can fulfill your expectations! I hope you know that.." You recall Sasuke's stories about the time spent with his own family, and how his clan was slaughtered. Similar to how Ai's family was taken from her, and subsequently causing the downward spiral of Shozuku. All of these people who have been hurt so much. >A. I wonder if you think I'm a good example for people like them to follow>B. I wonder if you think this really is the best path for me, or if my goal is misguided >C. I wonder if you think it's silly for me to try and carry this weight>D. Write-in
>>3181166YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO>B. I wonder if you think this really is the best path for me, or if my goal is misguided
>>3181166>B. I wonder if you think this really is the best path for me, or if my goal is misguided
>>3181166How old were we when Takeshi's parents died again?
>>3181177Too young to remember them. The only things you know about them are the things they left behind and stories from your brother.
>>3181166>>C. I wonder if you think it's silly for me to try and carry this weight
>>3181166>C. I wonder if you think it's silly for me to try and carry this weight
>>3181180So, Takeshi most likely has an idealized version of them in his mind, considering how he doesn't seem to resent them(that's usually how it is with Orphans, you either yearn for an ideal or you reject the very idea of ever needing them). His brother probably built them up a bit, even if he didn't intend to. I'm guessing he never really knew them as adults, considering his age. Never knew their flaws as people, which impacted his view of them, which in turn affected Takeshi's.With that in mind.>C. I wonder if you think it's silly for me to try and carry this weight
Wonder how shikadai is doing. We should catch up with best boy
Wiping the tears from your eyes, you look back up and smile. "I wonder if you think it's silly for me to try and carry this weight. When I first wanted to be a Shinobi, it was just for myself really. I wanted to surpass my classmates who were above me, and show that anyone can succeed with enough hard work. But after all that I've seen these past few years, I can't help but want to surpass even those expectations." Taking a few deep breaths and calming down, you start to share your experiences with them. Partly to express your hardships, and partly to organize your thoughts so that you can relay it to your brother. Hideki always accepted your excited rambling, but you want to show him that you've matured a bit.Before you know it, it's fairly late in the night. You head back into the living room and get yourself a snack, and accidentally fall asleep on the couch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tI55p41FYikThe sound of sizzling wakes you up. At first, your home is as dark as always. Neither you or your brother spend very much time here, so it's generally a bit messy without a woman's touch. Then the curtains are flung open, and you groan and sit up. Rubbing your eyes, you see your brother standing in the sunlight. "Hey, don't tell me you spent all that time with one of the greatest ninja of all time just to get lazy!" His cheery voice fills you with warmth. You rub your eyes, and smile. Suddenly jumping up, you pull Hideki into an embrace. The two of you hug each other tightly. "I missed you, bro." you say.He hugs you back. "Yeah. Same. Hey.. You're taller than me now, didja know that?" You pull back and grin. "Well, just a little bit." He glances down at your hands, and sees all the various scars along them. His smile is faint, at first. "You really did it, didn't you?" Holding up a fist, you chuckle. He sends a punch out, and your knuckles collide. Sparks fly between them, andboth of you break out in laughter. For the next few hours, you just sit and talk with your brother while sharing a meal. As always, he's fascinated by your adventures. After a while, the conversation lulls for just a moment. You look up. "Hey, bro? Do you think Mom and Dad would be proud of me?" Hideki stares at you with disbelief, a grin creeping on his face. "Takeshi. They are proud of you. How could they not be? The accomplishments you've made in spite of.. how this world is. I don't think they could be happier." Bro always does this. He hates referring to your parents as being gone. He's always told you that they live on in our hearts and memories. You smile. "Right." He prepares to go to work, and for the first time in a long time, you've got nothing but free time! What do you want to do today? >A. Go see if you can find Mari and her squad>B. Go see if you can find Shikadai and his squad>C. Go see if you can find Himawari and her squad>D. Write-in

>>3181276Hima is great but right now no one will consider her waifu material because she was so much younger pre-timeskip and she's able bort's sister and we're apparently Bros with him now

>>3181276>>3181285Fine but should we follow our temp. teacher shikamaru footsteps by marrying a sand waifu? You know the one
>>3181276Himawari is fine I guess. Leagues better than Sarada, but I'd rather see Mari and Shikadai first.
>>3181298Dude we've had no contact with people that like us from our own village let alone a completely different one. So in summation:Fuck No
>>3181298Dude, I don't think she's going to be receptive to the advances of the guy that turned her eyeball into a fucking kebab.
>>3181307Ah well, a man can dream but enough with waifu talks. What should we invest in Tenten's shop next? The senbon shooter?
>>3181311There are like, guns that shoot jutsu in the Boruto universe I think, which seem pretty handy.
>>3181317Yeah IIRC it's a wristband that you can load up with mini scrolls with Jutsu sealed in them, so even someone without Chakra can pull off the strongest jutsu.But you have to remember Mini doesn't follow Burrito's canon.
>>3181330Mini used that once before.
>>3181256>C. Go see if you can find Himawari and her squad
Sorry guys, kind of preoccupied. Update is incoming

>>3182998Nah, she knows ChoCho, she wouldn't mess with a guy from her mother's village.
>>3183032You underestimate the power of daddy issues, combined with the genetically ingrained preference for garbage men that she inherited from her mother.
yall mind if I post best girl?
>>3183077 Please continue comrade
The first thing on your mind is letting everyone know that you're back. You're hoping to go and find Shikadai and his squad, first of all.A great warmth fills you, while you stroll through the village. Inside the walls here, it's almost like time stands still. You intentionally take the long route, partly in order to give Shikadai some time to wake up, and partly to enjoy the scenery. Few people recognize you, but those who do greet you warmly and welcome you back to the village. You even get a free snack, passing by one of the food stalls on the main road. Just a little later, and you find yourself at the Nara residence. It's as peaceful as ever, and you notice a single trail of smoke coming from the porch. Shikamaru Nara is laying on his side, puffing a pipe and reading some sort of magazine. Temari is sweeping, on the other end. Shikamaru empties his pipe an ash tray, but misses slightly and spills it. You freeze your approach, and the two of them lock eyes for a brief moment. Temari swipes the broom in his direction, blasting a gust of wind. Shikamaru leaps up, moving much quicker than you ever thought possible for him. He melts into the shadows, vanishing. She shakes the broom at the ceiling, yelling. "I TOLD YOU THIS WOULD HAPPEN!! YOU DIDN'T LISTEN!!" You gulp. The best way to remain safe is to move into the eye of the storm. "Uh, Temari?" At first, she whip an angry gaze in your direction. But after a few moments she realizes who you are. "Takeshi! Look. At. You! You've gotten so big!" She switches into mom mode right away, and trots over with a grin. Frankly, the sudden switch is more frightening than anything."How'd your training go??" >A. Sasuke was a hard ass, but we all came a long way>B. Two Uchihas, an Uzumaki, and Ai. There was a lot of brooding. >C. It wasn't anything that special.

>>3183081>B. Two Uchihas, an Uzumaki, and Ai. There was a lot of brooding.>has Owl contract>went with Team Brooding for the training journeyHA!
"Two Uchihas, and Uzumaki, and Ai. There was a lot of brooding." Temari briefly thinks back to her younger days, and her eyes go wide for a second. She exhales with exasperation. "I can only imagine." You chuckle. "Well, it caused my sesne of humor to develop a bit more I think." She smiles. "Thank god. I guess you're looking for Shikadai, huh?" You nod. "Yeah, I was hoping to say hi now that I'm back. Is he around, or on a mission?"His mother puts a finger to her chin, and thinks for a moment. "Well, they said they were going to go training earlier this morning, and then go get some lunch. If I had to guess I'd say they're probably at the BBQ place by now. You might be able to catch them before they leave."You give her a thumbs up, as you turn and make haste. "Thanks! Don't be too hard on Mr. Nara!" She pouts as you run off. Rushing, you get there in record time. Sure enough, just as they're about to walk in, you call out. "Hey! What are you delinquents doing, going into a nice establishment like that!?" The three turn simultaneously, obviously annoyed at whoever this jokester is. All at once, three smiles creep onto the Ino-Shika-Cho formation's face. "Takeshi!" You leap down from the building, grinning. "Hey guys. I'm back." The first thing you notice is how different everyone looks, now that you've gone through your major growth spurts. Yeah. Lots of growth, it seems. You gulp. "How's everyone been?" Shikadai looks up at you. He's a few inches shorter than you. "You turned out pretty lanky, huh?" You look at all three of them. Yeah, you guys- Looking at chocho, you choke again. "You guys grew a lot too." >A. How's everyone's training going?>B. You gotta tell me what's been going on on the village these last couple years! >C. Which one of you wants to buy me BBQ for my return? I'll treat you later, if you do>D. Write-in

"You gotta tell me what's been going on in the village these last couple of years!" Inojin smiles. "We've been getting a lot of work. Mitsuki is a Jounin now, as well as Mari. The rest of us finally became Chunin, now that all the ridiculous competition is out of the game." Chocho crosses her arms. "I don't know how they expect us to compete with the likes of those genetics." Something is happening inside of you. "Y-Yeah, it's really unfair." Shikadai chuckles. "You still pulled it off though, huh?"You rub the back of your head. "Well, I have to thank Shino Aburame for that really. I probably would have gotten knocked out in the first round if he didn't give me that special neurotoxin." Shikadai shrugs. "Well, what happened happened, that's all that matters. How'd your training with the big man go?" You sigh. "Excruciating. But worth it. I'm looking forward to sparring everyone again, to see how we've all developed. Of course, we still have to settle the score in Shogi." Shikadai smirks. "Careful. I'm almost on par with my dad now. Or maybe he's just getting even lazier in his old age. Hard to say." "We'll find out." you say playfully. >A. Well, I just wanted to say hi and let you guys know I'm back. See ya later!>B. Can I join you guys for some lunch?>C. Write-in

>>3183251>A. Try to find Mari and her squadYes, we escaped spaget to encounter more spaghet.
You start to make your way towards the weapon shop, hoping to find Ten-Ten there. She'd probably be able to point you to Mari and her friends. You can't help but admit that her status as a Jounin has your interest piqued to a high degree. Thinking back, you never really saw her use her full potential since the match you had in the Chunin exams. Even that was pretty short. As you're walking, you bob up and down on the balls of your feet slightly. It's so exciting, being back. You have to contain yourself, but soon enough you'll be able to show everyone everything that you've learned. Now on the main road, you notice a green jumpsuit ahead of you. It's Ollie Chan and Roku. Roku is one of Mari's team mates, primarily a medical ninjutsu user. When you fought him in the preliminaries of the Chunin exams, he was essentially you but better in every way. It's impossible not to wonder how you stack up these days. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjjkHg5FOhkYou wave. "Yooo! Hey guys!" Ollie Chan is leaning on Roku, and limping slightly. Nonetheless, he waves with fierce enthusiasm. Roku grips him tightly. "H-Hey! Settle down, you're gonna knock us over!" Roku grins, smugly. He gives you a half wave. "You're back, huh?" You nod. "That's right. What happened here?" Ollie sighs. "Sparring with Mari. Sometimes she gets a bit too... into it. I'll be okay though, it's just a pulled muscle." "I see." you say. "So she's still at the training field?" Roku nods. "Yup. Her and Lee." You tighten your fists. "I see. Hey, I'll catch up with you guys later. I gotta go take care of something." Roku laughs. "Same as ever! Just be careful, dude.." You rush there, as fast as you can. It doesn't take much time, before you burst through the trees into the training field.
Sliding to a stop, you stand slowly. Across the field, wearing a white Kimono lined with red, is Mari. She's grown as well, equaling you in height. Rock Lee yells out. "TAKESHIII! You're back! You've still got the jumpsuit on too, huh??" Looking down, you are wearing it. You generally put a navy blue jumpsuit on under your clothes, and wear other stuff on top of it. It's so light that sometimes you forget it's there. You give him a thumbs up. "Of course. It's so functional." Lee rushes over, and shakes your hand gleefully. "Takeshi, since you've been gone.. well, My son was born! His name is Metal Lee! Please, you must come see him later today!" As usual, you're slightly overwhelmed by his positive energy. "Of course. I heard that Mari became a Jounin since I was gone." Rock Lee gets a bit of a worried look on his face. "Y-Yeah. She's been training with Naruto and, speaking of which, how was it training with Sasuke? He's so skilled, I bet he.." Rock Lee's voice trails off, as he notices you and Mari are looking at each other. The wind blows across the field, as she stands there silently. "Are we doing this?" you ask.She smiles, in a condescending way that you haven't seen in years. It reminds you of the very first time you sparred her, here on this very field. "You're ten years too early, Takeshi." Your eye twitches slightly, and you draw back into a fighting stance. Lee takes several steps away. "Jeez.. No introductions then.." What do you want to do? >A. Let her make the first move>B. Cast Ephemeral on her>C. Try to use your speed to overwhelm her>D. Write-in
>>3183328>B. Cast Ephemeral on herShe knows we're fast and likely expects us to react rather than make the first move. Hitting her with a strong genjutsu early will best take her off guard and make using her taijutsu harder for a bit.
>>3183328>>B. Cast Ephemeral on herWe are doing it, man. We are making this happen.

>>3183338Thinking it better, we should keep it as a trump card of sorts, let's wait for a good opening.>C. Try to use your speed to overwhelm her
>>3183346http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/EphemeralYou point at someone, and if their eyes meet your finger, the chakra connects to their brain and you cast them in a deep illusion that's custom tailored to your liking. The possibilities of the havoc you can wreak in someone's mind are endless
>>3183328>B. Cast Ephemeral on her>>3183354Ah, I see. I forgot, Hyuuga aren't genjutsu proof in this universe.
>>3183328>B. Cast Ephemeral on herCan we Jojo pose while doing it?
>all these people picking the trap option
>>3183365I mean, Mari is a trap, soooo....
>>3183365Please explain why and how it's a trap.
>>3183368I'll let mini take care of the how and why when the update comes
>>3183328>B. Cast Ephemeral on herTry to do It naturally, like making a declaration that we will win or something, so It doesn't come across as something she needs to dodge.Follow It up with poisoning her, of course.
>>3183373So, you're just making shit up.
>>3183365Mini doesn't do trap options That's Som
>picking the trap option
>>3183376I don't have an anime girl smug enough for this but take this one for now
>>3183373If you're referring to their magic eyes hyuga eyes aren't instant visual genjutsu breakers and the ephemeral hijacks the brain anyway.
>>3183385>"Haha, that's a shit option.">"Explain why.">"Nah, I'll just wait for the blowout.">"Oh so it's just nothing.">Smuganimegirl.bmpYeah, how convincing.
>>3183392I take no pleasure in this
>>3183392Oh no, it's probably a trap option, but noone knows how exactly. I mainly chose it because she hasn't seen it before, but I feel like speed would have worked as well.
"I gotta warn you, Mari. I'm going to win here. I know you've been training a lot with Naruto, but it's not going to matter.." You raise your finger up slowly, and point it at her. You cast Ephemeral. "I hope you're ready!" At once, she cracks a smile and laughs. "Pffff! What is that!? Did you forget..?" She steps to the side, avoiding the invisible stream of chakra that extends from your finger. Powerful visual Genjutsu need to have some sort of trigger or connection in order to take effect. For the majority of your Genjutsu, this involves molding your chakra and sending an invisible pulse into their brains to highjack it. Ephemeral is essentially no different, merely lacking handsigns.From Mari's perspective, before you even raise your finger, she can see you molding your chakra to cast the technique. She spins around, drawing a small hand fan and flicking it open. Spinning around once more, she yells. "Air Palm!" Flicking her wrist, the small fan releases a huge explosive bullet of wind. Your extreme reflexes aren't enough to dodge it cleanly, due to being caught off guard. You try to jump up and out of the way, but the wall of wind catches your foot and sends you spinning wildly out of control. While you're in the air, you try to right yourself and look down. She's releasing a storm of senbon in your direction. What do you do? >A. Cover up, and let your hardened limbs block them. >B.

we always have ol' faithful to fall back on if things go too far south
At once, you start to charge your Jet Sheath so that you can change directions. Not wanting to give away the secret of your hardened limbs, you opt to deflect several of the senbon with the sheath of your sword. Once it beeps, indicating the air pressure charge is complete, you release it. You sharply head back down towards the ground, and explode towards her. Slipping under several more senbon and kunai, you get as close to her as you can. She swipes at you with a knife, and you duck under it and stand straight up. You're face to face, only inches apart. From here, you let an uppercut loose to try and surprise her. She slaps your fist away with her palm, calmly deflecting it. Before she can assault you with her Gentle Fist Taijutsu, you pivot on your foot and spin around her back. As you try to swing a kunai at her neck, she spins around yet again to meet you and deflects it. You take a slight amount of distance, and draw your sword. She draws a kunai and uses it to parry every swing. Disengaging further, you ramp up your speed even higher and start to circle her. Constantly moving in and out, a whirlwind starts to develop in the training field as you exchange blows. Regardless of how fast your feet are, her hands are equally as fast. She's perfectly capable of keeping up with your speed. She parries your blade outward, and strikes your elbow with two sharp fingers. The inner part of your arms isn't hardened, so the sudden impact reflexively causes you to drop your weapon. She kicks it to the side, and rushes you down. What do you want to do? >A. Catch her off guard with your hardened limbs, and meet her in Taijutsu combat. >B. Jump into the air, and use Soap Style: Soap Spray. You're capable of walking on the slippery substance without slipping, but she won't be able to. >C. Use the Water Clone Jutsu to disengage and think of a different plan>D. Write-in

>>3183565It only robs impqct. Gentle Fist is that Fist of the North Star shit, works by pumping chakra into our body through their hands at strategic points to just plain shut us down. It doesn't need kinetic impact.
>>3183572Damn.Sounds like we need to get even heavier weights, then.
>>3183575Ah well... DO we still have poison though?
>>3183581I know we're ninja but I think anyone would be justified in calling bs if we start poisoning people in a sparring match
>>3183543>>3183545>>3183546>>3183551>>3183553Update incomingAlso yes, you do have all of your poison on you.>>3183588Nah, it wouldn't be an issue. Anything you poison her with you can also heal immediately after. Ninja spars are pretty rough, full contact with bladed weapons even.
Leaping back, you narrowly avoid her attacks. Going through a series of handsigns and molding your chakra in a unique fashion, you notice Mari's eyes widen with surprise briefly. She's clearly never seen a technique like this before. Mixing the fire nature and water nature elements inside of you, it bubbles up into a white foam that you funnel through your hands. Similar to breathing fire, the soapy, frothy spray coats the field below you. It even gets all over her. She jumps back in an effort to avoid the mysterious technique, but ends up slipping and falling. You land and rush towards her, unaffected. As you loom over her, you draw back your fist and prepare to drop the hammer. Her eyes are filled with fear. "No! Not again!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lij4v1EB2rY She spins around, and a burst of chakra explodes off her body as she starts to break dance. It blows the soap off of her, and she flips up to stand and begin a massive Rotation. You've seen this technique before, but what you weren't expecting was for it to keep expanding. The Rotation builds and builds, ripping apart the grass and dirt and tearing up a storm. You hold out your arms and legs, and the hardened flesh manages to absorb the impact. Your clothes are destroyed on the arms and legs, however. You get flung back into a tree. As your feet touch the ground, Mari is already upon you.What do you want to do? >A.

>>3183663How would she predict the technique we've never showed her?
Guys, a thought for future, another dirty trick for the arsenal.Get a suntetsu (japanese concealed stabby stick) made that has a poison reservoir. We load it up with poison in advance, then we fight as normal, woth the suntetsu in our off hand. But if we see an opening for it, we can jab them with the poison.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suntetsu
>>3183668The Scalpel I mean, Roku uses it all the time.
behold the ultimate ninja tool, the perfect trap
>>3183674Not even Takeshi would stoop so low. I bet you think Orichimaru did nothing wrong too.
>>3183674Anon, I know we are aiming to do war crimes with magic in the future but we need some boundaries here, alright?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZ1_C80MPEQAs she's rushing you down, your eyes meet. She has a confident grin on her face, and a deep hunger in her eyes. She's probably been visualizing the moment that she defeats you for years. Unfortunately, you can't let that happen just yet. You've never defeated a Jounin like her directly in one on one combat. You want to show that you can hang with the best of them, after all of your intense training. She might have her pride, but so do you. You barely have time to complete the numerous handsigns for Soap Style: Soften. At once, a slick, soapy substance coats your skin. Mari pauses briefly, as she notices the chakra coated liquid cover you. She decides to attack regardless, and thrusts forward with her fingers. You bring up your forearm, and the combination of your hardened flesh and the chakra-enhanced soap deflect her attack from your chakra points. It still aches, and you still suffer damage, but your points aren't completely shut down. They manage to dilute the effect of her technique just enough. She wasn't expecting this. Carrying the momentum of your deflection, you step in and thrust into her solar plexus with your elbow. You jab her once in the face to stun her further, making a narrow gash on her forehead. The breath is knocked out of her by the iron-like clubbing. You pivot around to her side, and prepare to chop the center of her back directly down. Her flexible upper body allows her to retain her balance, and she swings up with her arms and a burst of chakra to push your limbs upwards. Your goes up, and she brings her palm directly up into your chin. You're lifted into the air, and your mouth is cut up from the impact. The taste of blood fills your mouth.
>>3183686You were anticipating this much at the very least, however. As you fall back to your feet, you complete the handsigns for the Chakra Scalpel Jutsu. She rushes you once more, and strikes your right arm with two fingers. This time your chakra points are hit directly, and the arm goes limp. At the same time, you push out with your palm and it slams into her elbow. Her own right arm goes limp, but again, she was anticipating this. Carrying the momentum, she spins around and roundhouse kicks you in the head. You go flying back, and before you're even on the ground, she leaps on top of you and pins you to the ground with her bodyweight. She slams her palm directly down onto your heart, stunning you with a massive burst of chakra. All of your breath leaves your body. The two of you are panting. A droplet of blood travels down her forehead and nose, and onto your collarbone. You remain there, staring at each other for a while. She smiles. "I.. I did it." Your cheeks start to go red. Something strange is happening inside you again. "You did. You beat me!" She's about to cheer, but, then she remembers she outranks you. "W-Well of course I did! It's only natural!" Part of you wants to tell her to get off, but another wants this moment to last forever. Rock Lee, from the bushes, calls out. "Mari is the winner!" ---That's all for tonight folks, hope you've enjoyed. I'll be running again on Friday!
>>3183688Goddammit guys.Thanks for running!
>>3183688Thanks for running!
>>3183688thanks for runningits just a spar>Mari tsun AFaww>Your cheeks start to go red. Something strange is happening inside you again.doki doki?
>>3183691Hey man, look at the position Takeshi is in right now with Mari. I'd call that a personal victory.
>>3183688You know what, we went head to head with a Hyuga in Taijutsu and didn't get blown the fuck out, I consider this a victory.And I could get used to being under Mari
>>3183698As would I
>>3183688So Mini how did we do on this duel compared to your expectations?
>>3183688We could have won this, I think.Would you sate my curiosity and tell me how well C would have worked Mini?
>>3183688Quick Takeshi, while she's this close!GIVE HER THE KISS!
>>3183695I am happy for Mari but this was a terrible performance and I'm ashamed of ourselves. What happened to "Be the very best like no one ever was"?>3183698>3183699Look at this! This isn't the line of thinking of a winner. A man of taste? Yeah, but not a winner.
>>3183703pretty good, there were plenty of chances to get utterly btfo. But you made her work for it>>3183706It would have given you time to think about things more, a few more turns to possibly find a different angle. >>3183693doki doki
>>3183709We need to get back to our roots as the dirty tricks guy, the ninja among ninja.If we want to take down a hyuuga in close combat, we need every edge we can get to level that playing field.It's why I suggested >>3183670 as a future purchase.Or at least that we make a habit of keeping a poisoned senbon readied where we can get to it for opportunistic poison stabs.By the time the thought of a poisoned senbon hidden in the palm occured to me though, it was way too late in the fight to get distance and prep one.
>>3183714What would B have done?
>>3183720B was a hard loss. Get air palmed into the tree, and then obliterated by taijutsu
>>3183714Should have went with my gut. Shit. Well, It's a good loss at least, and a good comparison point for where our Taijutsu Is at.>>3183709Yeah. We need to get back Into the game of asking questions about the situation, looking at our skillsheet and being creative about things. That's how we've done so well up to this point. Call this getting the hubris or complacency smacked out of us, or the rust. Back to the drawing board guys, we need to give a shit about fighting again.
>>3183723would some thrown poison senbon in our hand to augment our punches have helped?
>>3183714>doki dokioh myASK HER OUT!
Little spars like this are good. Win, lose, or draw. we get a better handle of Takeshi's limits and our opponents' . And get to test out strats and combos.This isn't a battlefield, its a laboratory. Workshop it here so when it counts we have a better idea of what will get the job done.Takeshi's dream is to be the best, not undefeated.>>3183719none of his peers are going to underestimate takeshi nowadays. maybe more losses would change that though...
>>3183763Is this really that much of a loss? It's not like she won easily, and we had the upper hand a couple of times. Going toe to toe like that with one of the best Taijutsu specialists among our peers is pretty impressive.And by god anon, that Anko
>>3183739What DOES Mari look like now? You did not really describe her.Also I assume chocho's pic is accurate to how she looks now?
>>3183749We gotta win post-timeskip for that anon. You wanna date? Let's earn It.
>>3183779no, its her prize for winning
>>3183771I expected more salt over the loss desuI wish plague still did porn
>>3183793This is a jounin who nearly had us in the tourney, only losing because she sorely underestimated us. she did not give us that advantage this time.Us losing was kinda expected imo, doubly so with anons rusty from hiatus.
>>3183793I mean, I'm certainly upset at myself for not picking C or coming up with a viable write-in, but getting salty In the thread doesn't help anything.Gains. Gains and putting effort Into strategy In fights will help.
I really hope Mari doesn't get the feeling we were taking it easy or not putting our all into this fight because she'd be pissed and I'm sorta hoping we can ask her on a second date
that one anon was right. Boruto the anime is blah AF
>Mari wonJustice. >>3183809Yeah but it's not eye-bleeding like the manga. I think I have a picture of manga Himawari saved, would you like to see it? Too bad.
>>3183810what did they do to Hinata's boobs? Did Anko eat them?
>>3183812Oh no, Ikemoto just can't draw adult women.
>>3183772Seconding this, I'd like to know a description of what she looks like now.
>>3183815how did he get this job?
>>3183825He drew backgrounds for Kishimoto.
>>3183827and the sex must have been great
>>3183779Mate, the entirety of pre timeskip was that. Now is literally the time for starting stuff like this, considering the stakes haven't been raised quite yet.
>>3183772>>3183820I'm actually leaving this somewhat intentionally vague. Her kimono somewhat conceals her figure. The picture I posted of the smug looking Hyuuga is essentially her face, although her hair isn't quite as messy.
>>3183878Ok. I'm archiving, any preference for the description?
>>3183888Takeshi develops a femdom fetish
>>3183878You are such a tease Mini. I approve.
>>3183888"Takeshi returns" or something to that effect is good enough. Thanks, btw
>>3183888Include "Believe it" in it.
>>3183878Given she's pinned us we should have a general idea of her limbs and either chest and/or hips.
>>3183910Firm, but soft. She's certainly highly athletic.
>>3183912she must feel lil' takeshi too

>>3183921>dat descriptiongood man
>>3183688How romantic, kyaa
>>3183917Probably not so lil' right now.
Takeshi should learn Shadow clones. not for fighting but for studying
>>3184062Absolutely, but we have to be a Jonin to learn them. (Officially)
>>3183392He obviously knew something you didn't, and despite the shitposting by the dude, you guys didn't try and get some further clarification.Everyone's fault overall, but this quest is all about teamwork and heart. People argued in the original quest, but when it came down to it, our player agency, write-ins, and (overall) cohesion normally won us the day. We need to follow Takeshi's example in this Anons.Dattebayo
>>3183385And shame on you as well. You think Takeshi's parents would be proud of you holding out on us?
>>3184103Yeah, this Is a bit of a wake up call I think. We either get our head In the game or we're gonna fall behind the super-nin. Didn't we want to be best? We gotta care about every vote now, season 1 didn't pull It's punches and season 2 sure as hell won't.
>>3184103Except we totally did ask for clarification, noone gave it. He just said it was a trap option without providing any reasoning as to why. I'll go out on a limb and say it was instincts on his part so he couldn't, but he needed to be more clear than just posting a smug anime girl and calling it a day.
>>3184354To be fair, opening a fight with your strongest technique is never a good idea.
>>3184354I dunno, I barely know anything about Naruto but even I know that trying to cold start a genjutsu against someone with a byakugan is a bad idea.
>>3184432It's worked in the past, Mini's gone on record to say Sharingan's the anti genjutsu eye, while the Bakugan's anti taijutsu.Using a genjutsu on Mari is literally one of the main reasons we won in our tournament match, so there is a precedent of them working in the past.
>>3184505Oh shit yeah it's the sharingan that sees through Genjutsus. My bad.
>>3184507Yeah and even then they're not instant genjutsu breakers no matter what. It's just that the uchiha left after the massacre were the bullshit of bullshit.
Still though I'm fairly surprised, Salad had a strong showing at the end of boruto pre-timeskip but Mari has a strong support right out the gate. Personally I'm fine either way but I am interested in how that all goes.
You guys are right, we gotta keep the dialogue up like we did in part 1 if we want to keep winning.That other Anon earlier was sort of right, Mini doesn't do "trap" options, but there's usually only one or two right ways to approach a situation, so there are definitely wrong options.We either need short creative write ins or we need to pick the optimal choice for each situation out of the presented choices
I just want to clarify, is Takeshi looking like Aizen in part 2?If so girls should be blushing at this face
>>3185121Takeshi isn't the most perceptive when it comes to this. It could be happening already, for all you know
if they have magic eyeballs, just automatically assume genjutsu is useless and go to defcon 1
>>3184835There are good options, bad options, and blatantly silly ones. The only reason we hit Mari with a genjutsu last time was because we caught her off-guard. Set-ups and keikakus are our forte, so I think we should stick to that. That being said, we went at a taijutsu specialist a full rank ahead of us and still made her sweat for it with minimal trickery involved, so we didn't do too bad.Still, like >>3185224 says, maybe we shouldn't try to directly genjutsu someone who can see chakra. It's just a bad plan.
>>3185260Don't even bring up the magic eyes, if anyone see us doing handsings they can expect it to be either a ninjutsu or a genjutsu, and if they don't see a fireball or a clone coming out what are they going to think? Context guys, don't forget about the context.
>>3185121I'm picturing him with Glasses Aizen's hair, though. Still a VERY handsome man, but not quite with Slick Aizen's panty-soaking aura.
>>3185301I could see that until the fight starts then he has to slick it back to keep it out of his face.>>3185260I could see how some people might even tease Mari for it being this close>Hey everyone, I beat Takeshi!>Awesome! what dirty trick did he try to pull this time? Bells, poison?>no dirty tricks this time, I beat him in straight up taijutsu at the end>You fought him in taijutsu?>Yeah it was close but I managed to take him down>It was close? Are you saying he almost beat you? You're a Hyuga!>...>And you're a Jonin too!and that's how Mari hates Takeshi more in part 2 than in part 1, he didn't even win and people are still impressed with him
>>3185301>>3185318That pretty much means Mari, as of where we left off, is staring full on into a slicked back aizen face.
>>3185336Takeshi always did look better after a fight, now in more ways than one
takeshi better at least get to 1st base by the end of the next thread
>>3185296Mini has always rewarded us for playing it smart, and all of our victories feel earned as fuck. As long as we don't go full retard we should be fine.Even versus magic eye bullshit. Uchihas must be exterimnated.Sorry, Saladbois>>3185318>the one time Mari didn't get btfo'd by us and she still gets laughed at for not winning by a mile>Takeshi gets treated like the man for do as well as he didF o r e v e r T s u n d e r e

>>3185456Waifu war? waifu war never changes
>>3185456Mini tends to keep things focused better than most.
Where Mini at?>I'll be running again on Friday!
>>3185850nigger cool your jets it just turned friday on the east coast of america
I'd also like to take a moment to bring up the idea of Alcohol generation via boil. Why:- pure alcohol is chemically extremely simple, allowing mass production- ninjas are less likely to have ludicrous alcohol tolerance as opposed to standard poisons (with some exceptions)- alcohol dulls just about everything, and would render most (MOST) dexterity-based actions a ninja does (such as complex handsigns and aerial manoeuvres) extremely difficult - alcohol could be easily released as a gas- METHANOL as a lethal option and ETHANOL as a nonlethal option- alcohol is flammable- the above, but empathised - ethanol is often used in soapmaking (it is a good solvent,) and as a cleaning product in general, so it isn't far off what we already got I speak of pure alcohol, methanol especially. As opposed to standard poisons, which rely on small concentrated doses, this could be made in massive quantities. It's flammability is both a tool and a bane however, as depending on the opponent shitting alcohol everywhere may be stupid. The fact it can be used lethally (methanol) or nonlethally (ethanol) grants more utility. I brought up this idea before and it met some support.Don't use it against Lee, ok. >>3185855It's Friday afternoon in 'stralia, and I have no idea where Mini lives.
>>3185869East Coast of america
>>3185869There was an idea for a technique a while back, Alcoholic Mist. It's somewhere in one of the old threads with a whole list of other ideas. I'll look them up and repost them... eventually.
>>3185882I brought up the OG alcohol stuff. Tumors/overgrwowth were brought up by someone else, but were dismissed due to impracticality. I don't remember anything else.
>>3185885Though, now we're set on soap, it's a good idea to focus on that. Bases can turn fat into soap - which has scary implications. It's a process called 'saponification.' 'turn your opponents flesh into soap' no jutsu
>>3185869Personally I think our Boil Release is not the proper boil release, I think it's one of the weaker sub-classes of boil release like Rubber and Lava-Release, so either it needs to be stated that our boil release is a 'chemical' sub-class or it's soap and only soap and only ever will be soap, this is ultimately up to Mini though.
crystal meth release
>>3185899Sure. Let's see how it pans out.
>>3185899>>3185947That said, Takeshi doesn't have an inherent boil release. He learnt how to make his own boil release through study, and the prerequisites were knowing water and fire I believe? So there shouldn't be any inherent limitations besides what I can only assume to be talent(?). Details elude me since I haven't re-read the quest.
>>3185962That's not how kekkei genkai work, Boil release is as Bloodline related as Dojutsu or any other special elemental release, that means at one point someone in our family had boil release, maybe the full boil release or they also had soap release.
>>3185972It works differently in this quest. Ask mini.
>>3185974>>3185972Hey ho, decided to find it for you.

Next thread when?
>>3187615Monday heck his twatter
>>3185972Technically that isn't even true in canon either. Yes you do need to be born with the potential, and yes you would generally inherit from earlier ancestors if the release is properly cultivated, but you can be born with the potential without needing to inherit it through genetics. The two biggest examples of this in canon is how the second tsuchikage essentially created his own release, and the only kekkai tota in the world at that, from scratch, but found a student with the potential to learn it despite not bring related, which was onoki the third tsuchikage, and the third kazekage if the sand figured out how to usr magnetic release by studying the One Tail, not from inheriting it. It's rare but possible, after all those clans had to have started out with a founder at some point.In fact Takeshi might be able able to form his own minor clan now if he gets a wife in the future. Konoha is always down for more kekkai genkais being cultivated to a consistent extent.
>>3188157>Takeshi might be able able to form his own minor clan now if he gets a wife in the future.Sadly, Objective Best Girl likely precludes that option. I doubt the Hyuuga want some upstart Clan having the Byakugan in its bloodline.
>>3189214You know, I just realized. What happens if you combine our bro's water hardening technique with Gentle Fist?
>>3189292If we could hit someone's chakra point with a burst of chakra and an Iron fist? It would probably explode their pressure point If we could manage to strike it. Hmm.How the gentle fist works In short Is using the incredible detail processing ability and ability to see chakra points to then produce chakra from ones own fingers to either seal or otherwise damage a persons tenketsu. Everyone has chakra points, If struck by a precise needle of chakra from any kind of jutsu a similar effect would be possible. One of the seven swordsmen even devised a technique to explode chakra points or something with chakra needles, though based on my limited knowledge I'm under the impression he simply used them In quantity to ensure a point was struck.If we want to start sniping chakra points though, we would need two things.1. Any kind of non-elemental jutsu that can form chakra Into a point. We could coat our hands or senbon In It, for example. In theory we may not need a jutsu at all for this, as both tsunade's strength technique and the contact part of the gentle fist style both use jutsu-less chakra shaping.2. We would need a jutsu to give ourselves precise chakra sight to reliably target the tenketsu. While this might seem Impossible and certainly would be an ordeal, both sensory ninjutsu and dojutsu creation exist In setting. Kakashi Hatake was able to engineer Ai's dojutsu, which he created to compensate for no longer having a sharingan. If she would let us, the best place to start Is learning both some sensory ninjutsu and Ai's dojutsu If she would let us, possibly through a jutsu trade, and then using what we learned from both In pursuit of what we're looking for. Unlike the vast effects of the Byakugan and Sharingan we would only need chakra sight, so It seems doable the more I think about It.Tl;dr It's probably not worth It In the short term, but It would be rather amazing If we pulled It off down the line.Here's my own taijutsu combo though. Eight gates + Tsunade's strength technique + sage mode + Iron Fist style.
>>3189214is it Hinata Uzumaki or Naruto Hyuga?
>>3191304I’d bet the former.
>>3191304Nalt got special exception due to basically being Ninja Jesus.Plus the Uzumaki being a rather old Clan, means their only recourse would be forbidding Hinata from marrying the idiot. And that probably wouldn't have worked.But Takeshi? He's just a (particularly talented) rando chunin (future jounin).So while they'll likely let Objective Best Girl Mari and him get married, they'll likely use their political clout to block the starting of a new Clan by the two of them.
>>3191453I think Naruto just changed them, like he said he would in that pre chunin exam beatdown he gave Neji
>>3191464The funny thing?Canonically, Neji was right.Nalt wasn't some nobody, he was BORN to greatness. He's the grandest of hypocrites in that he is walking, talking proof of exactly what Neji was saying.Because of the mechanics of canon Nalt as a setting, some people are just plain born special, and others are born to be B-Listers.
>>3191477>Neji was right Of course.
>>3191453Fuck, we don't even have a last name. We never decided concretely on one. Can't really start a clan without even knowing the name.
>>3191477everybody knows Naruto betrays its core themes
>>3191453Except building relations with a budding clan with the only downside being that clan having byakugan for a couple generations before dying off from being diluted seens like a pretty good deal, especially if that new founder has enoigh promise that the hokage, shadow second, and the jounin commander all took an interest in his training AND have an opening for him planned in intel, which is pretty impressive. Over all, as long as it's a branch member and the new clan respects the Hyuga by not trying to dissect their own kid's eye, they would be fine with it.
>>3191564To add to this, trying to actively hinder the founding and cultivation of a clan with a consistent access to a unique release would not look good on any clan whatsoever. That would basically be hindering new assests to the village, I defy anyone to try to argue against that.
>>3191584Mate with all due respect, fuck of with that. Building a clan's just a dumb idea honestly, you want to turn this quest into just a politics simulator?
>>3191701I agree anon, that's why Sarada is the absolute wrong choice as well.
>Not just having a comfy not!dead shinobi familyLads.
>>3191701....That's not the point at all dude, I'm not saying we should start focusing on building up a clan or anythimg of the sort. I'm saying that far later in life if Takeshi did choose to start up a clan he wouldn't be impeded because that would be gimping village assests. How would you even turn this into a clan simulator if the quest is focused entirely on one person anyway? That's retarded
>>3191477He also died for the main branch,Him wanting to didnt change it
>>3194724Neji died so his ship could live.
Is next thread delayed to tomorrow?
Mini never came back with the milk.
For those who haven't seen on twitter, I've delayed things until thursday again. Sorry guys, went on a trip and that kind of fussed things up this week. Should be regular now for a while
>>3198346Thanks for the updates. It was a pain in the ass back then when it was always up in the air.
