Chapter 19: Superiority
The Ninja school rules have changed a lot.
This exam after some years will divide the ranks according to the age of the students.
But this is not the case now, the system is not that perfect.
Of course, Hatake Kakashi was one of those who passed this exam and came at the top that’s why he was able to graduate early at the age of six years old.
Because in this exam as long as you end up at the top ranking you can choose to apply for an early graduation.
That’s why every kid in the ninja school basically attend to enter this exam.
But Hatake Kakashi was a genius, after all, he’s a minority, most people can’t achieve what he did they need to learn step by step through the years.
But even so, the actual number of the participants gets more and more every year.
Due to the large numbers of the participants, They divided them into five groups.
All the students draw the first fight, after the first round, the winners will fight the winners and the losers against the losers.
And then they will keep this way until they make an overall ranking.
The winners of the five group will enter the final stage of the exam.
And of course, all of those fights will be watched by the Hokage himself.
That shows just how much the Sandaime was concerned about the new generations.
The opening of the exam was of course made by the Sandaime himself.
All of the students cheered when they saw him, the most respected person in the whole village.
a very warm atmosphere.
In Konoha, a Hokage is undoubtedly the highest status a person can achieve, the most respected existence.
although the Sandaime appearance wasn’t that scary, all the eyes feared him, everyone respected him!
Because he’s the Hokage of the village, he’s now the strongest man on this land!
Looking at the ninja school children in front of him, they were happy, smiling at him because they admired him.
he raised his hand, and everyone quiet in a moment.
“The legacy of Konoha is the will of fire.”
“The future of the village is in your hands!”
“The will of fire will be inherited to the green leaves, so the kids need to work hard for the prosperity of the village and for the transmission of that legacy.”
Sarutobi said a few words, wish completely lift the atmosphere.
The crowd, including Minato, almost all the students were driven by the passionate words.
Naito stood in the crowd, thinking what a generous words he said.
The kids of this village including Minato respect and admire the Sandaime.
Naito respected him, after all, he knew that even Naruto wanted to be a Hokage because he also admired him.
But deep down in his heart, Naito knew that someday he will need to deal with some powerful people.
The kind of Uchiha Madara and Kaguya Ōtsutsuki!
Those were the hidden targets of Naito.
Maybe it’s still far away but he needs to be prepared.
And the first step will be winning this competition.
Naito clinched his fists, his eyes were full of confidence and determination.
He will not give up!
After the Sandime completed his word.
The first round began.
The kids were taken to four separated fields.
The Sandaime wasn’t very concerned about the divisional battles, of course, he was waiting for the winner of the sub-fields.
Only the winner who can reach the top of the ranks can have the attention of the third Hokage.
Naito was assigned to the third field.
Kushina was in the same field as Naito, but she didn’t care about her own assessment, she was only concerned about Naito getting good results
She was very worried.
Her heart was racing, watching Naito silently.
“We must be at the top.”
In fact, it’s a sub-field, an open playground, with two examiners, and four Anbu to control any kind of situation.
Naito first opponent is a student from his class.
That kid expression was terrified when he drew Naito as his opponent.
the most unwanted opponents, without a doubt, is Minato and Naito.
Well, most people feared Minato more.
The war Naito declared on Uchiha Samui made every student fear him, his opponent was trembling in front of him.
“I … I surrender!”
That’s all he was thinking of, he wanted to say it, but when he saw the White halo surrounding the fist of Naito he knew it was too late so he clenched his fist and dashed toward him.
But Naito Knocked him down with one punch to the chest.
The examiner was slightly surprised, then he shook his head, and announced the first win of Naito.
Naito didn’t think about him, he didn’t even try to make him surrender, he reminded himself that they were still kids.
There isn’t a lot of kids who are like him and Minato.
After this, almost all the fights end directly by surrendering, or by ending it with one move.
Naito didn’t need to use too much power, all the fights were too easy.
This also made everyone surprise.
“Yes, awakening his Kekkei Genkai made him very strong.”
Many students who once looked down on him, now they admire and respect him.
Looking at him hoping that someday they will awake there own Bloodlines.
However, the bloodline isn’t very easy to get.
So they can only look at him.
Even the examiner and the Anbu were looking at him as if they were praising him.
Kushina was very happy watching this scene.
Naito started his fourth fight.
Still with no accident.
Although the fourth opponent was a little bit stronger but compared to Uchiha Samui he was nothing.
A moment later, the examiner passed to the audience with a great voice the name of the winner.
“Yuu Naito, Fourth victory!”
This sentence made the audience quiet for a moment.
But a treacherous voice comes from the third sub-field.
Kushina couldn’t help but cheer him as soon as she heard the announcement with a face filled with joy.
Because, winning four streak games, makes you a winner!
It qualifies you to enter the last round!
It was very easy very fast.
the entire third sub-field looked at Naito with a very envious expression.
