T.S.H Chapter 423: Orochimaru’s Plan

Black Zetsu sighed helplessly. It would be impossible for him or for any of his clones to get closer to Naito, and even if he dared to do so, he wouldn’t leave him the chance to escape.

At the same time, although Zetsu’s heart was sinking every day in hatred, he couldn’t help but sneer, he never expected that Naito would fight with the descendants of Hamura, and completely destroy the moon.

“In any case, his action has speeded up the process. Mother will be liberated, and she will have then to slowly recovering, and when she gathers enough Chakra and strength, she will be fully resurrected…”

To resurrect Kaguya, it’s necessary to project the Rinne Sharingan to the moon and release the Infinite Tsukuyomi. On the one hand, it’s to trap the world under this Genjutsu and gather their Chakra, and more importantly, to free Kaguya’s will.

The moon itself is not a necessary condition for the release of the Infinite Tsukuyomi. This moon was created by Hamura and Hagoromo; however, before Kaguya was sealed, and before the moon even existed, she used the Infinite Tsukuyomi.

This is a contradiction in itself.

White Zetsu is actually a human being, who got converted by the Infinite Tsukuyomi. He was made this way to be one of the so-called Kaguya’s Army. Black Zetsu is different from White Zetsu; in fact, he was also manipulated by him.

Uchiha Madara thought that he had planned and calculated everything, but it was all Black Zetsu’s plan.

“So, what are you gonna do next, do we wait for Indra’s reincarnate to grow?” White asked Black, and at the same touch of fear revealed on his face, saying: “I feel that Naito is getting stronger every day, is it wise to wait?”

Black, who was listening to White’s words, suddenly pondered.

He kept quiet for a long time, then he finally spoke: “No, we can’t wait any longer, it’s hard to continue as we planned before…”

“So, do we start the preparations now?”

“Yes, get ready.”

White nodded, with a cold stare in his eyes.


The dark clouds were filling the sky, and the rain was falling down, making the ground muddy, and splashing water everywhere.

In the Land of the Rain, in a remote empty place.

Suddenly, a figure stepped on this muddy ground, and walked over, step by step, looking at the Rain Village in the distance, with his eyes flashing slightly.

“It has been a long time since I came to the Rain Village. Although I’ve heard the news and read the intelligence but seeing it with my own eyes, I can’t help but feel amazed. Although the sky is kind of depressing, the feeling inside there is quite the opposite.”

“Compared to Konoha now, this village is full of life…”

Looking at the Rain Village, which is much larger than the Sound Village he built, Orochimaru’s eyes flashed with an inexplicable feeling, especially when he mentioned Konoha the look in his eyes felt even eviler.

After shaking his head, Orochimaru didn’t even move forward but waited quietly in his place.

The rain continued to fall, and after a while, a figure appeared in the rain.

Naito walked slowly in the rain, he didn’t expect Orochimaru to come here, but he could roughly guess the purpose of his visit.

In recent years, apart from occasionally helping Hinata with her practice, Naito rarely went to Konoha, he didn’t even meet with Kakashi or Gai.

Naito’s name seemed to have gradually faded from everyone’s mind and has become more like a legend beyond everyone’s reach. Only the people close to him, or people such as Orochimaru knew that he has always been here.

Looking at Orochimaru, Naito gazed at him profoundly, saying: “You’ve done a great job with Karin.”

Naito has never been in the Sound Village after that time when he gave Orochimaru some of Karin’s blood samples. The research results were always delivered by his underlings.

“You’re welcome.”

Orochimaru nodded, by his tone sounded unnatural.

Naito’s gazes made Orochimaru feel that Naito has seen through him, which made him hesitate.

Naito looked at Orochimaru deeply, then said: “I’m guessing that you’ve come all this way to the Rain Village because you have something to tell me.”

“Yes, I wanted to know what you think about Konoha’s current situation.” Orochimaru raised his head, then said with a deep voice, his tone seemed to have a deep meaning behind.

“Orochimaru, you better speak your mind.”

Although Naito knew Orochimaru’s original intention, he wanted him to speak directly and stop turning around in circles.

Orochimaru smiled, although Naito’s tone has suddenly become cold, he already prepared for that, so he said with a devilish tone: “Hear me out, I have a plan… So what do you think, Yuu Naito?”

Nothing unexpected to Naito. After listening to Orcohimaru’s plan, his expression remained as calm as ever.

Orochimaru’s plan was… to destroy Konoha!

Orochimaru knew that Naito didn’t care much about Konoha, and he even had a very bad relationship with them, just like him, but Naito sill had people who he cared about there. Thus, he came clean to Naito and told him straight away about his plan.

Even though this was a very deadly act.

Naito cared about Kakashi, Gai, Anko, Hinata, and other people related to him; although it sounds like he cares about a lot of them, compared to the entire village, it’s still quite a few.

“This plan sounds a bit interesting. If you want to play… then just have fun.

Naito smirked, his tone and expression had inexplicable meaning. Naito didn’t wait to see Orochimaru’s reaction, he turned away, then disappeared into the rain.

Hearing these words, Orochimaru also smirked, but it felt eviler than ever.

Orochimaru already guessed that Naito will not stop him from destroying Konoha. After all, the two had a bad relationship.

The only reason he would stop him would be for the sake of Kakashi, Gai, and Anko, but it seems now that this possibility won’t occur.

Standing in the rain, Orochimaru once again looked at the prosperous Rain Village with a trace of inexplicable sigh flashing in his eyes. He withdrew his gazes then, and thought of Konoha while sneering, and turned away.

Add title

The Rain Village, Main Building.

Tsunade didn’t look older, she was sitting behind the Kage’s desk, while Konoha was working on some documents beside her, and she also didn’t change much.

Naito was sitting there relaxed on a chair in front of the desk, holding a cup of tea.

“So, Konoha invite us to participate in the Chunin Joint Exam they’re holding? It’s kind of interesting.”

An arrogant grin smug appeared on Naito’s face. This sentence made Tsunade and Konan fall into a bit of strange silence. Why would a Chunin Joint Exam held by Konoha be interesting to Naito?

Not a lot of things interests Naito; even the selection of a new Hokage won’t make him particularly concerned.

“It’s set to be held after two months, then are we participating?”

Tsunade rested her arms on the table, held her hands together, and then gently looked at Naito, and asked.

This kind of thing should be her decision, but Naito suddenly came to her office, so she would naturally ask for his opinion.

“What do you mean?”

With a chuckle that no one could understand, Naito looked at Tsunade and asked her this question.

Tsunade pondered for a while, then she said with a stern expression: “If we’re going to participate, then we shouldn’t do just do it for the sake of participating, we should win the tournament. Over the years, you have gradually faded out of the picture. Our Village is no longer considered as strongest, even the number of tasks that were entrusted to us has been reduced a lot.”

“Missions are the backbone of a village, the Rain Village needs to be known for its strong elite Shinobis. It’s bad for us to make you do all the work…”

Tsunade carefully analyzed the situation, and although she mentioned Naito several times, she actually threw him out of the equation.

Because adding him to anything will actually solve the equation. With a word from Naito, everything can be solved.

“I agree with what Tsunade-Sama has just said.”

Silently standing aside, Naito nodded gently, even though he was the God of Shinobi, who would dare to ask him to do tasks?

Strong Jonin ninjas are the backbone of a village.

“Then, let’s participate.”

Naito took a sip out of his tea and said with a smile on his face: “We will let Kimimaro, Haku, and Karin join.”


Tsunade, who was just taking a sip out of her water, spitted it all on the documents in front of her the moment she heard Naito’s words.

He’s gonna make Kimimaro, Haku, and Karin join the Chunin Exam?!

Tsunade widened her eyes and sat there, while Konan next to her was stunned.

It was clear that the strength of this trio is beyond the level of any Chunin, and Naito actually wants them to form a team?!

If this trio joins the Exam, no one else will walk alive out of it!

“What’s the problem? As long as I remember, Haku and Kimimaro were never promoted to the Chunin Rank, and Karin didn’t even become a Genin.”

Naito took another sip and said faintly.

“This guy…”

Tsunade was speechless. If he didn’t seem serious to her, she would have thought that he was joking. So she couldn’t help but consider it.

Tsunade took a deep breath, then nodded, “Alright, they will be a big surprise to the world, but… who’s gonna lead the team?”

Speaking of which, Tsunade seemed a little bit hesitant.

To participate in the Exam, a team leader is required. In this case, who will lead the trio’s team?!

At present, the only person who can lead this team is Tsunade, Konan, Kushina, and Naito. Others are simply not qualified to lead while Kimimaro is in a team.

“It’s okay, just let me do it.”

Naito took another sip, then said casually.

Upon hearing this, Konan, who was going to pour one more tea for Naito, suddenly froze.

Naito will personally lead the team?!

A team that Kimimaro, Haku, and Karin in?!

Are they gonna take the Chunin Exam, or are they planning to wipe out Konoha?!

Although Kimimaro and Haku are only Genin, Karin isn’t even a Genin, but these are only their ranks on the papers. In reality, they were the Anbu forces of the Rain Village, who directly serves under Tsunade!

After their strength stepped into the Kage Level, Naito specially added this rank in the Rain Village. But so far, only Haku, Kimimaro, and Karin have been selected for this position.

And when more Rain Shinobi join in, they will be… Anbu Commanders!

The Rain Village has canceled the Anbu department, but they were qualified to be in that position with their strength. Only those tasks that are particularly difficult to handle will be taken by the trios to deal with.

If those three join the Chunin Exam with Naito as the team leader, it will be a little too exaggerated. Even Tsunade felt stunned hearing this.

“Naito… Are you sure about this?”

“It just doesn’t matter. But I will also get the chance to see Hinata’s recent progress, it seems that she will also take this Exam, so isn’t this convenient enough?”

Naito stood up, shrugged, then turned away.

Feeling stunned for a while, Tsunade shook her head helplessly and said, “Forget it, it will be fine…”


Shinobi World, in an unknown location.

It was a hilly desolated area, and among these hills, there was a huge cave.

Inside the cave, Black Zetsu, who was attached to unknown Shinobi, stood there, with a cold flashing light in his eyes.

At this time, White Zetsu rose out of the ground and said: “Indra’s successors are always easy to manipulate, but Ashura’s always seem to be the issue.”

White Zetsu’s face showed a helpless expression, he spread his hands and said: “Ashura’s reincarnate, Uzumaki Naruto, is kind of an idiot, it will be difficult to manipulate him for now.”

“What happened to Uchiha Itachi?” Black Zetsu said with a somber expression.

White Zetsu shook his head, “You were clear about his situation, we will use him to get our hands on Sasuke, for now, everything seems fine.”


Black Zetsu nodded, then suddenly clenched his teeth, and said, “Damn this, we shouldn’t have exposed the Rinnegan. That guy, Naito, we couldn’t manipulate him into collecting the Bijuu after getting the Rinnegan… He obviously didn’t become the Juubi’s Jinchuriki, but he actually possesses the power of the Six Paths…”

Speaking of which, Black Zetsu’s eyes flashed with a deep sense of fear, he actually didn’t have any idea how Naito has actually possessed the power of the Six Paths.
