T.S.H Chapter 384: Qualitative Gap

Sasori’s puppet body broke apart, then he emerged out of it with his original body, the one that he converged into a puppet, he called this a perfect artwork, as it was his final form.

Immediately, he ripped off a piece of his chest, then threw out a scroll.


In the white moke, hundreds of shadows appeared in the sky, and from his chest, countless Chakra rays appeared accurately connecting him to each puppet out there.

What a shocking scene, this was his ultimate puppet technique!

Only Sasori, who successfully managed to turn his body into a puppet, could perform this technique. Up until this moment, the limit was ten puppets for each finger, the Shinobi who could control this much would be called a puppet master.

“Yuu Naito, the God of Shinobi…”

A smug grin appeared on Sasori’s face as he was looking at Naito; he seemed extremely confident.

Even the God of Shinobi wouldn’t make him afraid, because he was the strongest puppet master alive.

Controlling hundreds of puppets, Sasori attacked Naito violently.

Whoosh! Whoosh!!

With these overwhelming numbers, the puppets launched various attacks; poisonous needles, hidden weapons, sharp blades… A storm of threats fell head-on straight toward Naito.

Even Nagato, on the side, was slightly moved by this scene. Although he was confident that no weapon can mean him any harm if he counters it with his Shinra Tensei, still, the view was extremely terrifying.

At least, compared to other puppet masters, Sasori was on another different level; he could crush any opponent by ease using this technique.

However, this was his limit. For a ninja like him, who is classified as a Kage level Shinobi, it was impossible for him to compete with a Super Kage Shinobi level. No matter how strong he was, he was like an ant compared to them, not to mention Naito, who has already stepped into the Sixth Path Level!

Looking at this scene, Naito couldn’t help but remember the time when he fought against Chiyo a long time ago during the Second World Shinobi War.

“Sasori, you may have really reached the ultimate level for puppet master…”

Looking at the sky, Naito spoke for the first time, “Unfortunately, this is your limit.”

While talking, Naito raised his Kusanagi sword, then waved it at the sky.


A white halo light bust in the sky, all the attack, and the puppets got all fixed in mid-air at this moment as if time has stopped still!

This attack seemed as if it has shattered the emptiness of the void. All of a sudden, the sky looked as if it has turned into a large mirror, then started breaking and cracking, then collapsing under Naito’s sword attack.


In seconds, the weapon storm, and all of the puppets, under Naito’s Shock Force shattered.

The puppets didn’t only break apart but directly got shattered into small pieces, some even turned into a powder. There was no way to recover them again, they got utterly destroyed!

With that, all of the Chakra rays that were coming out of Sasori’s chest vanished.

Watching his own puppets destroyed by Naito’s sword attack, Sasori got extremely shocked. His attack was utterly vulnerable in front of Naito!

He knew that he wasn’t qualified to be Naito’s opponent, but he didn’t expect the gab to be this big, it’s as big as the distance between heaven and earth!

Even he, a puppet master that almost stands on the peak, could only feel his own smallness in front of Naito!

This is the power of the God!

With a shocked and complicated expression, he looked at Naito, then unconvincingly said: “Even if your strong today, your power will eventually turn into dust. Only true art is eternal…”

“You’re wrong.”

Naito looked at Sasori then said calmly: “You’re mistaking eternity for weakness. Without absolute power, even if the life is endless, it will not be eternal, you will never be called immortal, just like you’re case now, a weak mortal.”

“Look who’s power has turned into dust, this alone proves that the power your possessing is not absolute. True power cannot be eroded by time…”

Upon saying that, Naito swang his sword for the last time.

At the last second before his death, Sasori’s gazes got lowered slightly, as if he was asking himself.

“So, this is the true answer…?!”

Facing Naito’s visible Shock Wave, Sasori didn’t have the slightest intention to avoid, and a matter of seconds, his body turned into powder and completely disappeared.

Solely with two strikes, Naito finished Sasori, then his eyes directly fell on Nagato again.

Naito looked at him indifferently, Nagato was unable to raise any emotions inside Naito’s heart, because to him, Nagato was already a dead person.

“It seems that you, the man who has become the God of Shinobi, is no longer as cautious and calm as before. You have simply become arrogant.”

Nagato didn’t try to run from this confrontation, he stared directly at Naito, and from his Rinnegan eyes, a mighty aura burst out, making the ground tremble around.

This wasn’t the Shinra Tensei, it was merely his pure aura.

“Do you think people should be cautious when they encounter ants on the road?”

Naito could feel that aura coming out of the Rinnegan eyes, but his gazes were still very calm.

Naito didn’t attack right away, because he was still considering if he should keep those Rinnegan eyes.

With Naito’s current strength, he could clearly feel the power of the Rinnegan, which can also be considered as one of the forms of the Sixth Path’s forces.

In essence, this power was more reliable than what Naito has currently reached!

After all, even though Naito had a perfect Sage Mode, and also had the Reverse Hachimon Tonkou and the Soul Art combined together, they still couldn’t help him awaken his Sixth Path Mode.

Perhaps the power of the Shock Force alone is enough to defeat Nagato; however, Naito’s chakra and body were still not up to the standard to awaken the Sixth Path Mode.

Unfortunately, Nagato can not use the real power of his Rinnegan.

If it was Uchiha Madara in his heyday, he would have easily awakened the real power of his Rinnegan eyes, Limbo. Using this technique, no one lower than the Sixth Path Level would be able to stand against him because those who don’t possess the Sixth Path forces cannot detect his shadows at all!

This was the qualitative gap between the two. Even Hashirama, who has the perfect Sage Mode, will still be inferior because he wouldn’t have any way to resist the real power of the Sixth Path Force.

The Limbo alone will cause him a lot of troubles; it’s an invisible world that coexists with the physical realm, but that is ordinarily impossible to detect, not to mention the difficulty of fighting against Madara’s shadow attacks that coming from that dimension.
