On Konoha’s Memorial Stone, Masahiko engraved Mito’s name stroke by stroke.
Many names were engraved on the Memorial Stone even though there were differences in status. Ranging from as high as the First Hokage, Hashirama, to as low as Genin, who died in the war, as long as you’ve given your life to this village, your name will be engraved here forever. And this, of course, includes Mito too.
Masahiko asked Mito a few days ago whether she wanted to leave Konoha and go back to her roots. Mito just smiled and said to him, “Konoha is my root.”
In the end, Mito was buried in Konoha’s cemetery, next to Hashirama.
“There is one more person to be resurrected.” Masahiko sighed. Mito will be more troublesome than Hashirama and Tobirama.
The Edo Tensei resurrect people in the same state before dying, Hashirama and Tobirama should be alright since they were still young when they died, and they only passed away because of the injuries they suffered, but Mito is different. She will probably be resurrected in the same state she was before her death.
“In the original, Madara was resurrected in his young version. There must be an answer to this…” Masahiko murmured. He wasn’t in a hurry. All of this can be discovered slowly.
“If Mito isn’t resurrected, Hashirama will probably be sad…”
Masahiko was also sad after Mito’s death… he even shed tears again at her funeral because, for so many years, Mito was the only person who “understood” him.
But he had long anticipated the arrival of this day, and after engraving her name on Memorial Stone with heartache, he finally felt relieved.
Most of Konoha’s villagers came to see Mito off, even the shops were closed for today, even little kids came to attend the funeral. Among them, Masahiko also spotted the Senju clansmen that he nodded at them with a solemn expression. After that, Masahiko took a deep breath, turned around, and left, then Sara followed him.
Several people from the Uzumaki Clan were at the forefront of the line, and after offering a white flower to Mito, they left quietly under the leadership of Masahiko.
It was the most suitable time to seal the Kyuubi taking advantage of the fact that there were no people in the village.
When a Jinchuriki dies, the Bijuu sealed inside his body will die at the same time. Because of Masahiko, the Kyuubi was sacrificed for the second time in the process.
After the Bijuu dies, he will turn into pure Chakra and will not be resurrected until one or two years later. Although Masahiko sealed Mito’s entire house, he still doesn’t know how long that seal will sustain it, so it’s better to finish the work as soon as possible.
“Kushina, are you really ready?” It wasn’t Masahiko who asked, but Nanako.
As the Nibi’s Jinchuriki, Nanako had no prejudice against the Bijuu, but they will always stay dangerous. Moreover, becoming a Jinchuriki will change Kushina’s life.
“If you’re worried about her safety, then don’t. This old man can even seal the Juubi successfully, let alone half a Kyuubi.” Masahiko bragged.
“What is the Juubi?”
Masahiko’s face stiffened, then tried to cover it up, “Come on, when I say something like this, you should say, Sensei, you’re so amazing, where are your morals?!”
“Sensei, you’re amazing!” Nanako smiled bitterly, while Kenichiro took it immediately.
Masahiko glanced at him, helplessly. After living for so many years, Masahiko learned one thing, just ignore it when you’re being praised by Hashirama, Kenichiro, and Dai. It will only make things worse.
“Grandma, I’m ready!” Kushina finally said solemnly.
Masahiko nodded and looked at his three disciples, “Kenichiro, Yuriko, you two go and guard the gate of the Senju, don’t let anyone in. Nanako, you stay outside to prevent any Chakra from leaking out.”
“Kushina, follow me into the house.”
Everything was arranged, and Masahiko took Kushina into the room.
Pointing to the rays of Chakra flowing inside the room, Masahiko smiled and said, “This is the Kyuubi’s Chakra. Since he died, the only thing that left is this unconscious Chakra. It will take more than a year for him to resurrect.”
“No one has tried to seal a dead Bijuu before because the Chakra is uncontrollable. However, I used a seal to trap it inside this room.”
“So you don’t need to be nervous. At least you have more than a year to familiarize yourself with it and learn how to control the Kyuubi’s Chakra. Since he’s unconscious, it shouldn’t be difficult for you.”
“As for the little fox that you’ve always wanted to see, you will probably have to wait for another year to see it. It will be like giving birth to the little fox. He will grow inside of you…”
Speaking of this, Masahiko was taken aback suddenly, then smirked.
“You and Minato should take good care of him. Most importantly, if you ever had the chance, you should also trim his nails.”
Kushina looked really nervous at the beginning. But when she heard this, she had a dumbfounded expression, “Grandpa, so there will be really a little fox? Do it now!”
She couldn’t wait.
Masahiko nodded, then hesitated, “Probably, but if it happened, don’t forget about the nails part. I will only use the Four Symbols Seal at the beginning. So you try to control the Kyuubi’s Chakra, alright? First, get in touch with it. It will make controlling it easier for you later. Then I will reinforce the seal for you.”
Kushina nodded solemnly.
“Four Symbols Seal!” The Four symbols seal is already considered a simple seal for Masahiko, which he can perform just by raising his hand.
However, the amount of this Chakra is tremendous, and to help Kushina adapt to it, he had to slowly input it inside of her. After ten minutes, he finally closed the seal.
“Mind’s Eye of Kagura!” After closing the seal, Masahiko turned on his perception ability to its limit to be sure that there weren’t any remnants of the Kyuubi’s Chakra left.
Two seconds later, Masahiko nodded in satisfaction.
With a wave of his hand, the entire sealing barrier on the room was removed, and Nanako immediately walked in.
“Sensei, how is she?”
Masahiko nodded, but Nanaki was still anxious and run to Kushina.
Kushina has been standing still since Masahiko started the sealing process.
Using only the Four Symbols Seal is obviously not enough to seal the Kyuubi’s massive amount of Chakra, so she was desperately suppressing it inside of her.
Nanako gradually understood the situation and stood next to her with a solemn expression.
After about ten minutes, Kushina showed a slightly discomforted expression, and Masahiko immediately shouted, “Four Symbol Seal-Inverse!”
Nanako quickly started transforming the positive and negative four symbols seals into the Eight Trigrams Seal, completely sealing the Kyuubi.
After the seal was over, Kushina opened her eyes to find Nanako and Masahiko in front of her.
“It feels a bit weird.”
Masahiko shook his head, helplessly, “That’s okay. You still have more than a year to adapt.”
Kushina smiled too, “Yeah, I was almost at my limit just now.”
Masahiko nodded, “Nanako, did you hear the good news? You’re getting a great-grandson soon!”
Kushina smiled bitterly while Nanako looked dazed.
“Uzumaki Kurama, not bad, not bad…”
At the same time, Masahiko smiled, thinking, “Naruto, I made you a big brother…”
