Chapter 12: The Power of the White Fang


Early the next morning, Konoha’s council gathered in the Hokage’s office. The hokage and his advisors, all turned to Danzo Shimura.


“How do you explain the knowledge of the whole village of Sakumo’s mission details ?” The 3rd was really angry with Danzo.


While he trusts that Danzo works for the good of the village, and while he gives him with his Root group a lot of independence, it does not mean that he can tolerate harm to the people in the village. In his older days, he became softer and more lenient, but now, he is furious because of what happened to Sakumo


“Hiruzen, you’re too soft! The ninja is a tool. It’s unforgivable to fail because of his own feelings.”


“Let’s relax and not lose it now. Isn’t Sakumo alive? Why should we get angry!”one of the 2 advisers Koharu Utatane tried to calm Hiruzen down .


“I don’t think that Danzo san did anything wrong. Actually, I think Sakumo san was wrong to give up his mission. Danzo san has made this matter open to the villagers and they have done nothing wrong.” The words of the other advisor, Homura Mitokado were in the other direction.


“Does that me that he should die?” the 3rd was really pissed off by the trio’s attitude.


“You should not misunderstand me Hiruzen, I think that he should be responsible for his actions not die!” Homura’s words made the 3rd slow down a bit.


“Knock Knock!” the Knocking door interrupted the conversation.


“Come in!”


Sakumo Hatake went in through the door and saluted the council with the due respect!


“Sakumo? You recovered? Why don’t you take more rest?” the look on the faces of the Hokage and the rest of the council members was not too good due to their ongoing conversation.


“Hokage sama, do not worry. Ryo’s medical ninjutsu was really amazing and I have nothing serious.”


“Oh? It’s good to get your compliment. That little kid is really good!” The hokage was very pleased with the excellent new medical ninja.


“Hokage sama, I have something to ask you.”



As soon as he woke up last night, Sakumo was told by his wife that an Anbu was sent to his place.


With his wisdom and experience, Sakumo realized that this might have a relationship with Danzo. Danzo should know that Sakumo’s pride would make him unable to accept living with being turned on by everyone including his nakama, and it would drive him to kill himself. With an anbu in his house, his doubts grew larger.


“If you have anything to say, please say it!”


“Hokage sama, did you send an anbu to my home yesterday?”


The hokage silently glanced at danzo and said:


“No, yesterday, none of my Anbu were out yesterday.”


“What about Danzo sama?”


“Yes, I did send one, we were afraid you would hurt yourself because of the situation.” Danzo didn’t deny it and made it sound like it isn’t a big deal.


“You guys at root don’t understand how thing should go. Getting into my house at random, he was killed by me.”


“You insolent Sakumo! How did you dare kill an Anbu!” Danzo sent people to monitor Sakumo’s actions. But he never thought that Sakumo would kill one of them. Root members are konoha ninja after all.


“How about killing him?” Now that all the cards are out, Sakumo’s attitude towards the three with the Hokage is no longer relevant!


Without saying a word, Danzo rushed to sakumo with a direct punch.

At this time, Danzo didn’t have the stolen Sharingans, nor did he have Hashirama’s cells, but he was still at a level close to that of a Hokage…

But he missed.

In a flash, the white fang Sakumo hatake pulled out his Chakra white blade, with an indifferent look in his merciless dead eyes.

This was the 1st time he showed his strength in the village. Besides the 3rd, no one in the office could see the drawing of the swords. It was too fast and any attempt to stop it was too late, Danzo’s right hand was chopped right off by Sakumo.

His expression didn’t change in the slightest after that action. The people around were stunned. The two other council members were by no mean low level ninja. After all, back when they were younger, they were part of team tobirama. And then they had this dignified position of many years. They saw a lot of powerful feats in their life, and they were still shocked by Sakumo’s strength.


“Enough! Sakumo, Danzo. Do you just disregarde my presence completely!”

at 1st, the Hokage didn’t stop them, it was obvious that Danzo wouldn’t be able to hurt Sakumo, but what he didn’t put in account is that Sakumo would cut Danzo’s hand mercilessly.


“Hokage sama, you are my Hokage, NOT THEM! I am the white fang of Konoha, I am willing to tear through all obstacles before them. I can sacrifice on the battlefield, but I do not want to die in my own village. Now if you’d excuse me Sandaime.” Sakumo turned and left the office.


“Why didn’t you stop him?”


“Koharu, it’s not that I didn’t stop him, I couldn’t stop him! No one can expect such power from him. Even if I interfered I wouldn’t be able to change anything.” Hearing the words of the 3rd, the advisors stayed silent.


“Hatake Sakumo, Konoha’s white fang!” Danzo picked up his hand and left.


“Well, this is the end of the matter! You shouldn’t offend Sakumo afterwards. I believe he will always be the sharpest knife of Konoha!”


“Okay, we are gone, Hiru.”

The two advisors turned away and left side by side.


“Ah! Danzo is my comrade-in-arms. This is all I can do. Sorry Sakumo.” The 3rd sighed and smoked his pipe in front of the window.


With all of the events in the hokage’s office unknown to him, Ryo was still lying in the hospital bed of and did not wake up.


Yesterday, he saved the life of Sakumo Hatake, who was already “dead”. The Konoha Hospital saw that the little guy was no small deal. In that evening everyone from the head doctors to the janitors knew about the glorious deeds of Yamanaka Ryo.


Outside his room, people were gathering surrounding it. Everyone wanted to see this genius who was only five years old. But he spent a lot of Chakra yesterday, and along with situation he was gonna stay asleep for a good while.

  1. First!
    Thank you for the chapter, also it’s “Anbu” I would have ignored a typo but it’s too consistent to be one.

    1. Well actually, like the others novels it’s going to be 10 chapters a month. But I’m having some extra free time these days 😀

      1. aw only 10 chapters a month, that’s too little. WE NEED MORE THAN 10 CHAPTERS A MONTH, GIVE US LIKE 100 CHAPTERS A MONTH (nah just kidding but i’m serious about more than 10 chapters a month.) does this include the strongest hokage because I like that LN as well.

        1. Hhhh Well I’m learning “Kage Bunshin no Jutsu” so I could work on a 100 XD!
          Anyway 10 is a minimum. As you can see If I have extra free time, I will work on more!
          Also feel free to check out my patreon where you can find more chapters! I just posted chapter 19 there! Your support is much appreciated!

  2. Thx for the chapters I’m totally addicted and I Intend to join the patreon in the near future! On a side note I thought it was supposed to be Ninjutsu not Ninjatsu. Oh well keep up the good work!

    1. My pleasure! I’m really glad you’re enjoying it! and thank you for your kind words and for your support!
      Is is Ninjutsu indeed! But Microsoft Word auto corrects it to Ninjatsu and I keep forgetting to add the word to dictionary XD ! I’ll fix it now.

      1. Thx for the reply and your welcome! I also noticed that you wrote “printing seals” instead of “forming seals” in previous chapters once again not sure but thought I’d point it out.

        1. I actually asked my one of my fellow translators here about the correct term for it and printing was the word he suggested, we’re talking about hand seals here of course. If you can confirm to me that the use of printing is wrong I’ll get things fixed!

          1. By the way I’m no translator so the original author may have used printing but its just doesn’t make much sense or sound quite right in English. I only understand English so I have no idea what the raw says.

          2. No you’re right, I’ll fix this A.S.A.P. Thank you for giving me such feedback! It helps me improve and deliver a better translation.

    1. hopefully so, i feel sad whenever i think of toby’s reason about that war~

      at least he should save obito from madara’s clutch~
      then avoid rin’s death~

  3. how about you drop strongest hokage then focus with this until it reach raw then continue with strongest hokage~

    btw your translation is better within this novel than that strongest hokage~

    1. Hey, I’m really glad you’re enjoying it!
      I’m actually a new member in the team so the translation of this novel is independent from the rest! This novel will be my main focus! So rest assured, you can enjoy both novels and they will get equal attention by different people!

      1. thanks about that answer, so question from me : the release schedule of your translation is how many chapter per-week?

        1. Like the other two novels, the plan is to release 10 chapters a month. But I’m having some free time these days so I’m translating at a bit of a higher frequency. I’ll probably be announcing a fixed schedule that I’ll try to follow in May.
