Chapter 24: The Last One
Suddenly she hugged Naito.
After doing this Kushina felt a little bit embarrassed even if she’s usually a little bit careless.
A large crowd.
Noticing those strange eyes looking behind her, Kushina who was embarrassed, become angry, she clenched her fist and stared at them:
“Mind your damn business!!”
Everyone was speechless, most of them were afraid of Kushina, quickly they turned their heads like they didn’t see anything in the first place.
From far away, even Danzo was a little bit surprised.
Kushina being the next Jinchûriki It was a classified information, even Jiraiya didn’t know that.
Of course, anyone who is too close to her will know eventually.
Looking to this scene he couldn’t help but ask: “That Naito boy, is he too close to Kushina?”
Sarutobi slightly looked at him, then he shooked his head: ” don’t joke about a thing like this.”
“Well! As long she doesn’t leave the village, we can control it!”
“Well, it’s your call.” Danzo stops speaking, his face was more and more gloomy.
While Sarutobi looked very calm, his heart was overwhelming with a strange feeling.
He thought that Naito is a good kid, with such caliber he believed that with this kind of relationship with Kushina he will be the man who protects her.
Naito is an outsider, but he has grown up in Konoha, Sarutobi knew and believed that this village has its own charm.
Identity actually isn’t a problem.
But the only problem to consider is that stupid dual between Naito and Samui.
It gonna be a little bit difficult to deal with.
The rule forbids him as a Hokage from interfering in a life and death dual.
But rules are just words written in a waste piece of paper.
But negotiating with the Uchiha can abruptly make it a lot worse.
Sarutobi spaced out for a moment, but he didn’t leave his eyes from the field.
After drawing again, it was Minato who automatically went to the final.
This time, it’s Naito turn to fight against Gen.
However, everyone got surprised when the Aburame kid forfeits from the match, he didn’t even try he directly announced his loose!
This sudden event made countless of people shocked.
Even Naito was slightly surprised, he didn’t think that one of the top three will forfeit from his match.
“You power, the power of the earthquake can make a great damage to my insects, my bugs told me that your power is very dangerous, this kind of power is just unique… …”
Naito looking at Gen very quietly, made the last one continue his explanation: ” I calculated every possibility every move, whatever the method I am gonna use it will be my defeat, your power is just too great and anti-insect Jutsu.”
“Correct me if am wrong, I think you can create shocks from your legs too am not naive to say your only weapon is your fists, that’s why my insects will never come near you.”
Gen explanation made everyone come to their senses.
Most of the students couldn’t help but feel the unease even one of the top three couldn’t even stand against him, the power he gained is just too great.
However, others saw more than that, the surprising thing wasn’t Naito, it was Gen even some of the Junin admired him.
“An extraordinary mind, the battle was decided in his mind before it even began.”
“Indeed, the power of the shocks gives Naito the upper hand, it creates vibrations that make it impossible for the bugs to even come near him.”
“If Gen fought Minato instead maybe we would have seen an incredible fight.”
Those were some Junin respective reviews.
Of course, some of them respected his knowledge his strategic mind, others felt that he lacked motivation.
Even if you knew you’re gonna lose, you try and play your cards.
In short, it was mixed reviews.
At this point, the field only has Naito and Minato.
And the field can only contain one of them.
Kushina didn’t expect Naito to come this far, she hoped for him to only come in the top three, but she didn’t expect him to reach the finals.
She couldn’t help but shout
Although she feels that Naito chances of winning are very poor against Minato, she still hopes for him to get first, and be the genius of Konoha.
“Since I didn’t fight this one, there no need for the rest, let’s just start right away.”
Even Sarutobi couldn’t turn his eyes from the field, he hoped to see a fantastic battle, he wanted to see the true color of Minato.
He fought several of times now but the most incredible thing about his fight until now that he didn’t get hurt.
From the beginning to the end, Minato dealt with every battle like it was nothing!
“Haha, he finally made it to the finals, Minato is certainly number one.”
Jiraiya made it very clear that Minato was number one before the battle even began.
“This is not necessarily the case because… …” Tsunade said that but the second sentence was immediately interrupted by her own doubt: “Jiraya, come on give me a break.”
In front of everyone, Tsunade felt a little bit embarrassed.
Seeing how Tsunade was a little bit angry Jiraiya laughed then he whispered: “That little devil Naito is strong with his bloodline Jutsu, but it’s nothing that Minato can’t deal with I guarantee.”
She looked at him and whispered back: ” is it?!”
“Believe me, that little devil can do nothing… …”
But the next moment he felts chills coming from there backs.
Tsunade was laughing while she saw how Orochimaru come near Jiraya ear and said: “so you think Yuu Naito, can’t do anything to Minato?!”
Instantly cold sweat come out from Jiraya forehead.
He couldn’t help but smile while saying: “KeKe, in short words, I like Yuu Naito, and you like Minato, let’s just wait and see the final outcome.”
Tsunade snorted, and Jiraiya was too lazy to answer his provocation.
“The battle of genius, there will be always a result, let just wait and see.”
Orochimaru smiled, his eyes showed that he was interesting.
One side is the most talented kid in all-time Minato, and the other side is the awaker of the special bloodline the earthquake.
Both of them are interesting, both of them are strong, that’s what he thought.
