Chapter 23: The Top 3
At the end of the first fight between Naito and Satsune, the examiner announced the start of the second fight.
It was the fight of Minato.
Although he didn’t fight the same way as Naito, he used a very effective solution too.
He used a C-class water Ninjutsu, it was an easy win too.
Minato has a great control on his chakra and a variety of Ninjutsu, it made Naito admire him.
Casting a C-class Ninjutsu was completely nothing to Minato due to his great chakra amount.
Maybe it’s not the same level as a Jonin but it’s not that far.
Although it’s true his talent is remarkable, but not as much as the Ninja copy Hatake Kakashi who was graduated at the age of six-years-old
The next few fight was easy wins too, one of them was a kid from the Aburame Clan who ended the fight easily by using the insects.
After that, it was a genius boy from the Senju Clan who beat his opponent easily.
Soon, the five winners were determined.
The battles of the main round and the battles at the sub-fields are different.
The divisional battle doesn’t only test the calibration of the student on combat only, but also it test his endurance and Stamina, and it test one of the most important things for the ninja, it’s his luck.
To maintain his Stamina and power for four consecutive wins is just not a simple task.
The main round is simply a showdown of talent and power.
So after the contestant has a fight, he can have a long rest, so he can return to his best condition.
In the case of an injured contestant, there is one of the best medical group ready for any kind of injuries even a broken bone wouldn’t be a problem.
After ending the first round.
Satsune and the rest of the defeated students, withdraw after they rested to the sub-field to end their fights.
The main field is only for winners.
It took about two hours for everyone to have a lunch break, after that the second round has started again.
Coincidentally, Because there are only five contestants, there will be an automatically qualified contestant, and it was Naito.
The four students, respectively were Namikazi Minato, a kid from the Aburame clan, Hira Kanō and Senju Hana.
The Senju Clan isn’t miserable like it was later having only Tsunade as one of the Sannin.
In the same age as Naito there’s a lot of good students with the name of Senju, in addition to Senju Hana there is also a particular familiar person, it’s Senju Nawaki.
It’s Tsunade brother.
He’s the classmate of Naito, but he didn’t get to know him because he was ignored before he got the power of the Gura Gura no Mi.
Namikazi Minato versus Senju Hana.
It wasn’t an easy fight, but Minato stuck to using Ninjutsu and he got the upper hand, finally, he ended the fight with a Shuriken Kage Bunshin no Jutsu technique.
It seems as if he was in control of the whole battle.
Because from the start to the end, Minato seems to have already seen through every move Hana has done before it even pulled out, Minato knows how to fight this one and how to win.
This fight made Sarutobi feel proud.
The more he saw Minato the more he becomes pleasing to the eye of Jiraya, he almost can’t wait for him to graduate, he wants him to become his disciple already.
This time, Danzo was interested in Minato too, suddenly while he was drinking his tea, he calmly said
“This child is very mature, very calm, he’s suitable for the Anbu missions, I am thinking of recruiting him to the root training.”
Jiraya hearing this sentence he almost jumped out of his place.
Sarutobi exclaimed: “Jiraya back off!”
Then he looked again to Danzo.
Sarutobi calmly said: “Minato shouldn’t train as an Assassin he should be trained to be a Hokage.
After Sarutobi sentence, the expression of everyone has changed.
The Hokage, there’s no doubt that this is the highest position in the village, and such position a lot of people want’s to claim it and Danzou is one of them.
This sentence made Danzo unable to calm down.
He put his cup on the table, then he said: ” Hump! Sarutobi, watch your words, are you saying that he’s gonna take Orochimaru place?”
Minato ha not grown up yet, the successor of the Hokage, there’s no doubt that Orochimaru is more qualified.
Orochimaru heard Danzo words, but it looked as if it was completely unrelated to him, no one understood what he was thinking.
“Orochi is very qualified to be a Hokage too, but I have not grown old and weak yet, this situation is not gonna be decided any soon.” Sarutobi didn’t say any salty word, but he tone revealed a hint of warning.
He’s the Hokage, but also he’s still young.
Danzo reveal your thoughts if u have any complaint just say it!
That’s what Sarutobi was trying to say.
Danzo understood the meaning behind Sarutobi words, his expression suddenly changed, but in the end, he didn’t say a thing.
Minato won against Senju Hana, Aburame kid won against Hira Kanō.
Naito was felt strange looking at the Aburame kid, it’s as if he saw him before if he remember correctly, this guy looked like one from the original story, is that Shino’s father? Gen?!
The pride of the Aburame?!
Considering the time zone, and the look it seems he’s right.
He’s now one of the top three, in addition to Minato and Naito.
Two hours of rest.
At this moment.
The battle of the four sub-field has all been completed, because of the short time of every fight, it’s only ten minutes.
Most students are too tired to leave.
Some of them who still have some power, used it to came to the main field.
Everyone who isn’t a contestant is banned from crossing the sidelines of the field.
Naito didn’t get harm, but Kushina at the end of the second round ran toward him.
As a member of the Uzumaki, her physical power is very good, even if she doesn’t have yet the power of the men, but she’s not afraid of the continuous fight, she will recover later.
Moreover, even if she’s tired, Kushina didn’t come here to fight, but she came he to see Naito’s battles, she can’t rest now.
“You’re one of the top three!! Ow, Am so happy!!”
Kushina’s small face suddenly revealed a very happy expression.
She didn’t even care about the people who are watching and she threw herself directly on Naito and gave him a hug.
A touch of feminine and passion filled the heart of Naito with rainbows.
