This gloomy atmosphere didn’t have an effect on Naito. He directly entered the building and came to Orochimaru’s Lab.
However, before he reaches the door, he saw a girl who was a few years younger carrying some things, coming out from the room.
The moment she saw him, she panicked, then she instantly recognized his identity, and couldn’t help but exclaim.
“Yuu… Yuu Naito!”
Everyone in Konoha respected and admired Naito, and this girl wasn’t any different.
Seeing Naito so suddenly in front of her, made her heartbeats raise quickly, and out of her shock, the things that she was carrying fell off.
This happened so sudden, yet she quickly wanted to catch those things, but the more she was panic, the more the chaos, this time she didn’t only exclaim weirdly, but she also was about to break some bottles and cans on the ground.
Noticing these bottles and jars in the air made Naito’s brows raise, then he flashed several times and put back all of these lab materials back on the plat that the girl was holding.
Originally, the girl was looking at the ground with a pale face waiting for the bottles to hit the ground, but she got more surprised when she found out that they got back on the plate.
“Thank you… Thank you, Yuu Naito…”
The girl didn’t expect Naito to help her, and she was somewhat flattered by that. She greeted him with a lovely blush on her cheeks.
Naito looked at her strangely. From the first moment he saw her coming out of the lab, he felt that she was somehow familiar, so he asked casually.
“You’re Mitarashi Anko, right?”
Hearing Naito saying her name made her really surprised. She never expected a high ranked Shinobi like Naito to know her name. That would let her heart pounce and jump even by the thought of it. Which made her unable to respond.
She was Orochimaru’s disciple, and also his assistant. And the most admired person in her heart, after her master, Orochimaru, was Yuu Naito.
Looking at her reaction, made Naito look surprised. He just guessed, he didn’t expect it to be true.
Speaking of it, Kakashi, Kurenai Yuhi, Gai, and Anko, this generation has all grown up.
The most talented ninja, in this generation, Hatake Kakashi, seems that he had just become a Jonin a little time ago.
Perhaps because Sakumo didn’t die like in the Original, Kakashi had his father’s guidance, and Minato as his teacher, which improved his strength even faster than the original, and at the age of eleven, he became a Jonin.
However, Gai is not far away from opening the Fifth Gate. When he does, he won’t be inferior to Kakashi. And once he opens the Sixth, he will reach the Kage-Level.
“I didn’t expect Yuu Naito to know my disciple. This should be a great honor for her.”
Orochimaru came out of the lab and looked surprised to see Naito and Anko together.
During this period, Anko admired and respected Orochimaru as her master and mentor, which made her somehow embarrassed that she made Orochimaru stop his work and leave his lab.
“Nothing is broken, you can go.”
Orochimaru waved with his hand at Anko, then looked at Naito and said: “Because I needed an assistant, I’ve picked her. However, this new generation is really a lost cause.”
Naito shook his head, then walked into the lab.
Anko nodded respectfully, then she carried those things to the next room, her expression looked calm, but her heart was about to explode.
She didn’t know why Naito knew her name.
Although she always watched him from the crowd, Naito has never paid her any attention, she didn’t complain, she has just graduated from the Ninjas school, and he was at the peak of this world!
The rank gap was big, so big that she could only admire him from a distance, she wasn’t qualified even to get close to him.
But now, she discovered that Naito knew her, which made her can’t help but think that his expectations from her are too high.
The Yonbi’s Jinchuriki and the Gobi’s Jinchuriki were bound by some strong seals. They were surging some Chakra from time to time, but they couldn’t break the seal.
“It seems that my research wasn’t a big of a help to you.”
Orochimaru seemed to have a general idea of the reasons behind Naito’s visit.
Naito nodded slightly. He wasn’t asking for a new scroll, but since he got Orochimaru some new experimental materials, the Yonbi, and the Gobi, he came to make sure that Orochimaru is working hard on the subject.
“You needed help, and I got you some, now you need to do your best to study the Soul Art.”
Orochimaru replied with a stare on his face: “Since you, Yuu Naito, handed over these two Jinchuriki to me. Now that I have a bit of features, I will naturally study them with good care.”
“The Bijuu are indeed a perfect experimental material. I only got them a few days ago, and I already found out a lot of answers… In fact, and as a good gesture, I can give these results to you.”
Orochimaru’s only request is to deal with this matter without daring to have the slightest sloppiness. Moreover, his own research on the Edo Tensei also involves the Soul, in fact, it is the core of his technique.
Hearing how Orochimaru was dealing with matter carefully, made Naito admire his talent even more.
Compared to the three Sannin, he had the most exceptional talent and a bigger thirst for researches than Tsunade.
Naito replied calmly, then he turned and left, he wasn’t in a hurry to know what Orochimaru had cracked in these few days.
Things that have been discovered in just a few days are definitely not perfect. This subject can’t have the slightest sloppiness or carelessness. Naito’s attitude was as serious as Orochimaru.
“There will be results soon.”
Orochimaru said with an evil smile on his face as he watched Naito leaving.
