The Five Kages
#454: The Five Kages
[Insert text: The five Kages depart for the summit!!]
People: Kurotsuchi, Akatsuchi, we're counting on you!
[TN: Names literally mean "Black Earth" and "Red Earth"]
People: Tsuchikage-sama! Show those other chiefs what you've got~~~~!!
Tsuchikage: It's a little tough going to this conference at my age...
Tsuchikage: It's all right for you young 'uns... you don't know how it feels having an old back that could give out on you at any moment!
Kurotsuchi: Why don't you get around to retiring then, old man? / You can't hold the position forever, you know!
Akatsuchi: Ahahahah! I'll hold your luggage for you, Tsuchikage-sama!
Tsuchikage: Hands off, Akatsuchi! // I can handle it perfectly well myself!!
Tsuchikage: Nguaaaaahhhh!!! My back~~~!!!
Kurotsuchi: Dear me. You sure you don't want to send someone else instead?
Tsuchikage: L... Little whelp! Who do you think I am?! // I'm the Tsuchikage!! Once feared as the great Oonoki of the Two Pillars of the Rock Village!!
[TN: Not sure if Oonoki is an actual name or just a title, but it's safe to assume that the other "Pillar" was known as "Konoki"; "Oonoki" and "Konoki" are two types of eaves in Japanese architecture that always form a pair. Literally "big eave" and "little eave". The fact that he's the "big" one seems a little... off =p]
Tsuchikage: Hah! I can carry my own damned luggage!!
Kurotsuchi: Ugh... stubborn old man!
Akatsuchi: There we go. Now you can carry your own luggage. / Shall we go?
People: Well, we leave the Mizukage-sama in your care. / Make sure you don't force our chief to go to any excessive trouble!
Ao: We know.
Mizukage: Thank you very much...
Mizukage: Chief Elder... // I swear on my name as Mizukage that I will carry out this task splendidly.
Shinobi: As one of the Seven Swordsmen, it is your duty to do a fine job of protecting the Mizukage-sama.
Choujuurou: Y... Yes... I think I should... be okay... / ...probably...
[TN: Do all the Seven Swordsmen have pointed teeth? Zabuza did... Kisame does... Suigetsu, who aspires to be one of them, does... and now this guy >< They're just sharks, the lot of 'em...]
Mizukage: Have a little more confidence in yourself. / You are strong, you know. // Why else would I have chosen you as part of my personal guard on the journey to the summit? / Isn't that right, Choujuurou?
Choujuurou: Ah...... yes... / I think I should be able to do my best... / ......probably... // (Such a wonderfully kind woman...!)
Ao: A simple "yes" would suffice! Do you have to sound so unsure of yourself?! / Honestly, young people recently... they never used to be like this in the old days...
Shinobi: Ao... enough of the lecture. You don't want to be late to the summit... there's not a single moment to waste!
Mizukage: ("Old"... and "single"?!!)
Ao: I am giving practical advice! Why, when I was a boy -
Mizukage: Silence, or you die.
Mizukage: Well then, Choujuurou, Ao... shall we be off?!
Choujuurou: (I have to protect the lovely Mizukage-sama's smile! ...If I can.
Raikage: Is there still no word from Samui's unit?
Shinobi: No... but I daresay we will be receiving word from them soon. // Besides which, Samui was informed in advance of the route you would be taking. / Either way, either they will meet you on the road or they will send word with a messenger bird.
Raikage: Very well, then! I will set out at once!
Raikage: We're leaving!! Shii! Darui!!
[TN: In keeping with the theme naming of Samui's team, Darui's name too is an adjective describing his personality. "Darui" means "sluggish" or "lazy". No idea what's up with Shii's name, though.]
Shii: Yes, sir!
Raikage: Follow me!!!
Shinobi: *sigh*~~~~~~~ Not again...!
Shii: Come along, Darui.
Darui: No... I think I'll just go down and use the door... I'll catch up, so go on ahead...
Karui: This place should do. // Now then... / Let's hear what you have to say about Sasuke...
Karui: Tell us everything you know! / Don't leave out a thing! // What's the problem?! Spit it out!
Naruto: Sorry, I just can't... // Selling out Sasuke just isn't something I can do...
Karui: Don't screw with me! // You little... after all that, you think you can just back out now?!!
Flashback!Shikamaru: However...... // Sasuke is a shinobi of Konoha; he's one of us! // So we'll save him whatever it takes... that's the Konoha way.
Flashback!Sakura: Naruto... This is... the greatest request I'll ever make... // Please, bring... bring Sasuke-kun back...
Karui: What's the problem?! / Say something!
Flashback!Minato: To be a shinobi is to battle with hatred. / That battle is something that every shinobi is going through.
Flashback!Pain: Yet if one is to call "revenge" by the name of "justice", then that "justice" will only bring with it further revenge... // ...and thus the chain of hatred is forged.
Naruto: ......... // I know I'm being selfish here... // But I can't sell Sasuke out.
Karui: You dirty little...!
Naruto: I understand how you feel... how much you want to take revenge! // But if you just act on that hatred and end up killing him, then it might be my friends trying to kill you next! // A life for a life for a life! / Once it's started, there's no end to it! // The friends that we all want to protect will just keep taking each other's lives!
Karui: Well, it's that Sasuke of yours who went and started it!! // You think I give a crap?!! / I'm gonna kill the bastard!!
Omoi: What, then... would you suggest we do with the hatred we feel? // How are you going to take responsibility?!
Naruto: ......... // .........Beat me up... // ...as much as you feel you have to. // That's the only thing I can......
Karui: Don't give me that pathetic crap!! // If you think a stupid thing like that's gonna be enough to satisfy us, then let's see if you're right, huh?!!
Root: We have talented trackers Dajim and Tera keeping watch over Anko. // ...Should she be disposed of?
Danzou: This is a crucial period... / ...I would rather avoid making any rash moves that could worsen my position. // Set more people to work. / Capturing Kabuto takes priority over Anko. // (That boy... may be aware of the connection between myself and Orochimaru...) // Kabuto possesses valuable data on Orochimaru's human experiments... / We must retrieve them at all costs. // They could be very useful for my right eye and right arm.
