[side text: "Pain" such as only a god can bring... Pain invades Konoha!!!]
Deva!Pain: We will now split into two teems: the diversion, and the investigation team. // Providing the distraction: the Asura Path, // the Beast Path, // and the Preta Path. // Investigating, the Deva Path, // the Human Path, // and the Naraka Path.
[TN: Each named after one of the Buddhist six paths of suffering
, the six different possible rebirths. Naturally, their names are in Japanese, but I'm rendering them in their usual English forms (ie. mostly from the Sanskrit). A "deva" is a superhuman being, usually inhabiting a heaven-like realm. An "asura" is a kind of wrathful demigod. A "preta" is a kind of eternally-suffering ghost. And "Naraka" is the Buddhist equivalent of Hell. I think "Beast" and "Human" are fairly self-explanatory :p]
Deva!Pain: Konan, you're with the investigation team.
Deva!Pain: Konoha is surrounded by a great round barrier, encompassing both the air above and the earth below.
Konan: So anybody who enters without permission will be immediately detected...
Deva!Pain: As planned, we will hurl the Beast Path into the air above Konoha. // This will mislead them about our numbers and thus confuse them. // We will then stand by to be summoned by the Beast Path.
Konoha: Surely Itachi and Kisame entered the village undetected...?
Deva!Pain: Itachi was once a member of Konoha's ANBU. / He was aware of the proper methods of penetrating the barrier undetected. // I, however, will do things my own way.
SageGuy: ! // An intruder!
SageGuy: The intruder is alone. His location is I-B, by the west gate.
Deva!Pain: Move out!!
People: What...? // Guahh!
People: Aaghhhh!! // Wha - ?! // They're everywhere! / What's going on?! Wasn't the intruder supposed to be alone? // I'll use my Byakugan to assess the situation!! // Hurry! The barrier team alone aren't going to be enough! / Send word to the other teams and request immediate backup! // And send word to the Hokage-sama! Now!!
Human!Pain: No knowledge of the Kyuubi, huh...
[Message: To the Hokage-dono]
Raikage: I leave it to you!
Omoi: I knew it... I had a bad feeling about this. // ...Shit!
Karui: Oh, don't worry! There's no way Killer Bee-sama could screw up anyway. / This is all probably some kind of bad joke.
Omoi: How can you be so optimistic?! / He may be suffering even now, as we speak...!! Or worse, he may already be...
Karui: Shaddup!! I don't have time for your stupid pessimistic ideas! // This is our master we're talking about! This is Killer Bee-sama! / How could he get defeated?!!
Omoi: Are you not worried about Bee-sama, Karui?!
Karui: Bein' worried is no excuse for coming up with morbid delusions!
Raikage: Stop this, both of you...!
Raikage: You must save the Bee no matter what it takes!! / Understood?!!
Zetsu: This certainly takes a while with our numbers so depleted. // --SHUT UP. JUST CONCENTRATE ON THE TASK--
Kisame: Looks like... Sasuke made a little mistake...
Zetsu: Ahahahah! It's a tentacle! // --STOP LAUGHING!--
[no text just killerbee]
KillerBee: (Good... looks like no-one's about. // For an plan I thought up at the last minute, that was pretty good.)
Hachibi: ("Good", my ass! You sacrificed my legs for that plan!)
KillerBee: (Hey, hey, don't get so worked up. You've got eight of 'em. Them lil' footsies'll grow back. It was a good plan~!♪)
Hachibi: (Don't you start that terrible rapping in front of me! Talentless fool!!)
KillerBee: (Hey, hey, I know all that. I'm the one keepin' you inside of me, oh yeah~~!♪ // So from now on...)
Hachibi: (What? It had better not be something screwed-up again...)
KillerBee: I'm gonna sing Enkaaaaaaaaaaa~~ // ~~aaaaaaaaaaaahh!!
KillerBee: (Still, this turned out well... I'm not stuck under the gaze of that brother of mine any more. I can leave the village - I'm free! // After all, right now everyone thinks Akatsuki are holding me captive!)
Hachibi: (The Raikage will be going absolutely crazy about now... / Don't you mind?)
KillerBee: (...Hey, I've always been tied down as a village military asset thanks to being a Jinchuuriki, you know... // A guy needs a breather sometime!)
Hachibi: (So... what are you going to do?)
KillerBee: (If I'm doing Enka... it's gotta be Sab-chan-sensei!)
Hachibi: (...Who's that?)
KillerBee: (You should know that, dumbass! I'm talking about the chief of all Enka ninja!)
Hachibi: (You sure are carefree... Akatsuki aren't going to take this lightly, you know? // And after calling me out, you don't even have much strength left in you. / Hell, what was the point even calling me out like that when you were winning anyway?)
KillerBee: (Well, that Sharingan was one of the most powerful things I've ever seen, and that's saying something... // So I kinda got carried away.)
Hachibi: (......The times may be beginning to move...)
KillerBee: (Hm? You talkin' about my Enka?)
