After he appeared, Masahiko kept observing everyone’s expressions.
Orochimaru was slightly surprised at first, and then looked calm again, and Masahiko couldn’t tell what he was thinking about after that.
There was an “I knew it” expression on Tobirama’s face since he had never believed the news of Masahiko’s death.
Hashirama and Sakumo were surprised at first, and then even more surprised later.
On the other hand, Hiruzen’s expression was more complicated. First, he was surprised, then both surprised and excited, and finally slightly worried.
“Hmm, no guilty? It seems that Minato’s affairs have little to do with him, so Danzo did it… or is he good at acting?”
The various thoughts in Masahiko’s heart turned around, and it only took a moment.
The next thing he thought about is punching someone who was very dear to him!
Shaking his arm, Masahiko was speechless for a while, looking at Madara, who took a few steps backward.
“I’m not dead. Are you so excited? Madara.”
Madara stabilized his figure and calmed down.
The impulse just now was just because… he caught him off guard.
He just heard the good news and was hit suddenly.
This wasn’t his original body, and his power wasn’t even half of his heyday, and he might be incapable of facing Masahiko.
“Huh, old man! You mean you’re not dead yet!”
Masahiko smiled and then greeted the other two, “Hashirama and Tobirama, long time no see.”
“For us, it hasn’t been a long time since the last thing we remember is seeing you, Second Grandpa,” Tobirama spoke lightly, making Masahiko’s expression stiff.
“That’s right, they seem to see me every time they open their eyes… this is a bit embarrassing.”
“Second Grandpa, it’s been a long time indeed.” Hashirama tried to save him.
“Elder Masahiko! How are you…” Hiruzen couldn’t say anything.
“I just wanted to see what will happen to this world without me, so I decided to die once, don’t worry about it.” Masahiko tried to act cool. He wouldn’t say there was a problem with his training.
“Elder, it’s great that you’re not dead, please persuade Orochimaru!” Jiraiya shouted.
Masahiko ignored him, and turned to Madara, then asked, “Who took your eyes back then?”
“Do you really expect me to tell you, old man?”
Masahiko smiled, made a fist with his right hand, and sighed, “Have you ever seen stars in the light of day, Madara? Orochimaru, don’t you dare lift the Edo Tensei technique!”
“As you wish, Elder.”
Masahiko instantly flashed in front of Madara, “Right UpperuuCutuuuu!”
Madara parried with his left hand, but Masahiko shook him with his left.
“Damn you, old man!” Madara yelled, and the blue Susanoo gradually started to take form around his floating figure.
Masahiko retracted his right arm back, and the Chakra started condensing to the palm of his hand, “Susanoo, huh? Why don’t you try eating my Eighty Gods Vacuum Attack!”
Countess powerful shadow fists burst out of the air, and the Susanoo that has just condensed around Madara shattered instantly, leaving nothing!
Even Madara has disappeared in this barrage of Shadow Fists!
“Huh, it was too much. I forget that Madara has less than half of his power now…” Masahiko cursed secretly, “I’ll wait for him to recover after a while.”
Scratching his head, Masahiko turned his head in anguish and found that the rear has turned into a forest.
It seems that Hashirama has blocked the aftermath from reaching Hiruzen.
“Oh man, I forgot that I’m this strong now. It’s really troublesome.” Masahiko said that, but in fact, he was smiling.
“Elder, you’ve become stronger,” Orochimaru spoke slowly.
Masahiko glanced at him and smiled, “Have you received an invitation from the Akatsuki? Are you interested in becoming my spy?”
Masahiko became dedicated to finding another spy since Ringo has probably become unreliable after the news of his death. Moreover, the Fourth Shinobi World War broke out, and the Land of Rain became one of the battlefields. God knows where she is right now.
“An invitation from the Akatsuki? I didn’t receive one.”
Masahiko was startled, “Then why did you defect?”
“More importantly, where did you get Madara’s cells?”
As he spoke, the trees that had just emerged from the ground burrowed back again, and Tobirama, Hashirama, and Hiruzen appeared after a few moments.
“Second Grandpa, you’re getting stronger and stronger.”
Masahiko took a deep breath, glanced at the silent Orochimaru, and then at Hashirama, Tobirama, and Hiruzen… then felt like they should talk about the past first.
“Of course, I’m getting stronger. I’m not Hiruzen.”
Hiruzen smiled bitterly, and Hashirama scratched his head, “That’s alright, Hiruzen is getting older. He’s not you.”
Tobirama could tell that something was wrong with Masahiko’s tone and said, “What happened? Second Grandpa?”
Masahiko paused and sighed, “You’re all dead. There’s no need to burden you with living problems.”
“Elder Masahiko…” Hiruzen hesitated to speak.
“Elder, you should persuade Orochimaru first.” Jiraiya also came back.
“Elder Masahiko, things are not what you imagining,” Sakumo said, trying to ease things up between him and Hiruzen.
“I hope so,” Masahiko said lightly.
Afterward, Masahiko turned to Hashirama and Tobirama, “It’s Konoha’s 53rd year. It won’t take long. After 11 or 12 years, I will definitely be able to bring you back to life.”
Hashirama smiled bitterly, “You haven’t given up yet?”
“How can I give up…”
“Damn you, old man!”
On the other side, Madara finally fully recovered.
“Oh, you’re back, Madara.” Masahiko turned his head with a smile, “So did you like it?”
“What do you mean, you old fart?”
“The stars,” Masahiko said, smirking.
Madara’s face darkened, “Damn you, old man!”
“Hey, you’re called Orochimaru, right? Lift the restrictions on my power. Otherwise, you won’t escape alive from this old man!”
Masahiko said with a smile, “Give up, Madara, Orochimaru is on my side. The only possible way for this to end is to let me kick your ass and die in peace.”
Hearing him say this, Orochimaru actually nodded, making Madara speechless for a while.
“Damn you, old man…” Madara said this today more than he did in his entire life.
Masahiko smiled and said, “Orochimaru, you’re very promising. Don’t defect, how about coming to the Land of Whirlpools? I will figure out a way for things to work out. You only need to summon out Madara to relieve my boredom every few hours.”
“Old man! Madara’s face flushed, and he immediately looked at Tobirama, “This is all because of your damn Ninjutsu!”
Masahiko smiled, “How about it, Madara, are you gonna tell me?”
There was a bit of “can’t watch this” expression on Hashirama’s face, and he tried to change the topic, “Second Grandpa, you said Madara’s eyes were taken away?”
“Ah, yes, there’s a nasty organization going by the name, the Akatsuki. I have been tracking down the identity of their leader.”
Madara breathed a sigh of relief, “It looks like that guy has done a good job in causing you troubles, old man.”
Masahiko turned his head and said, “It’s no problem, just curiosity. Madara, no one in the world can beat me. Didn’t you feel how powerful my punch just now?”
“No one can beat you? Ridiculous, Madara burst into laughter.
Masahiko paused and sighed, “Is it that funny? Madara.”
Masahiko clenched his right hand, slowly moved it in front of him, and sighed, “It seems that you want to see more stars!”
