Title: Sai's picture book!
Side: Nowadays, his presence alone commands respect! Leave teaching at the academy to Iruka!
Text: What's inside the picture book?
Naruto: These are weird.
Yamato: Sai drew these, huh?
Orochimaru: Kabuto, take care of that after we get back.
Kabuto: Sorry, but if I don't get the blood off right away, it'll settle and dull the edges.
Oh, and Orochimaru-sama...
When we get back, can I have a male body with no wounds?
Orochimaru: Don't you have a decent stock already?
Kabuto: Of course,
but I just used a male around age 15-16...
And if I don't keep the scroll exactly in age order it bothers me... [Wow...Kabuto just went from badass to creepy mofo in about 2 pages.]
Orochimaru: Kabuto...you're an A-type, aren't you?
Kabuto: AB, actually.
for a quick synpopsis on how Japanese equate blood types to personality]
Sai: It's gone!
Orochimaru: What's wrong...uh...
Kabuto: Then let's get going. The hideout's just up ahead.
Sakura: This book...
The only weird pages are the two in the middle.
kinda creepy, to be honest.
Page 6: [THE WALLS HAVE TEETH!]
Sakura: All the other pictures are finished...
Yamato: But what do they represent?
If we can figure that out, maybe we can understand what Sai's thinking a little...
Sakura: It seems like whether you go from front to back, or back to front, it's the tale of a young man growing up...
Sakura: So starting from either cover and going towards the center, their stories play out.
There's not a word, or even a single letter.
Naruto: What kind of story is it?
Sakura: I dunno...
If you follow the black-haired boy's story...
SakurA: The right page always has that same boy,
and the left is a new one each time.
Go back a page!
See how with each page, the kid's clothes change a little?
He's wielding the same weapon as the guy on the left from the last page.
Yamato: So it's a story about the boy fighting enemies...
Sakura: And he takes the weapons and armor of the people he fights.
Yeah...it continues on like that.
Yamato: Fighting his enemies and growing up.
Sakura: And when you flip it, the white-haired boy goes through the same thing.
Naruto: Ya know,
the black-haired one looks like Sai.
He must've drew himself...
Naruto: Then who's the white-haired one?
Sai: It's not finished,
and I don't let anyone see it anyways.
It's my brother's.
Sakura: Sai's older brother...
Sai: My brother's dead.
Sakura: So when you reach the center...
Sai and his brother...
Yamato: Let's go.
My clone's made it to their hideout.
[Clone Yamato: nyuk nyuk nyuk!]
????: You're late.
Orochimaru...Didn't you said this afternoon you'd teach me a new jutsu?
Kabuto: Quit talking like that...
Orochimaru: Take it easy.
I picked you up a little present, instead.
He's originally from the Leaf Village, like you. I figured you two could reminisce about your old home.
Text: That man...is here!
???? : Hmph.
