Read the sig and give me what I want! Seriously! :ossu :tossu

Thank you everybody! Keep an eye out for the Asian Jesus scan, as they've agreed to use only my translations from now on. Other freelance scanlators are still welcome to use my translations as well. In fact, I encourage you to use them! Every week! Forever!

Page 1:
Title: The King! (the King from Shouji, "Gyoku")

Side: The best view is always from the high ground! It's great! It's the best! Step by step, let's all climb the stairs!

Toad Kanji: Step

Page 2:
SFX: Step step
Pakkun: There you are!
SFX: Tap tap

Shikamaru: You guys're my backup, huh?
You're a few minutes too late.

Sakura: We are?? Shikamaru...
don't tell me you took out an Akatsuki all by yourself?

Sai: You must be much more capable than I was told.

Sfx: tik

Page 3:
Shikamaru: This was one of those things I had to do, no matter what...

Sakura: Yeah, huh...

Shikamaru: What about the others?
Sakura: We split off from them to come help you...
Sai: We should get back to them.

Page 4:
Ino: I can't believe you used your real body to distract him...

Chouji: Hehe...you're not quite at Shikamaru's level,
but you're pretty smart too, Naruto!

Naruto: Heh...don't compare me with him, that's not fair...

Yamato: I'm impressed that you managed to use the new jutsu three times...
You could barely get to two during our last training session.

Page 5:
Kakashi: He came up with a new strategy to ensure the jutsu would hit after the first attempt failed, and he did it so fast.

Naruto's gotten so strong...
He's... surpassed me.

Taking a jutsu that even the Fourth couldn't complete farther than I could ever hope to.
It's almost time for his generation to take charge of our world...

Can you sense it?

Page 6:
You're always there, right in front of his eyes.

He's getting stronger,


Yamato: We should return to the village, Senpai.
Kakashi: Mmhmm...

Page 7:
Yamato: We're heading back to the Leaf village, everyone.
Ino: Where's Kakashi-sensei going?

Yamato: To finish him off...

Kakuzu: Ungh...
How could...a bunch of...kids...beat...

Page 8:
Kakashi: Oh, I'm sure we look like kids
to someone who fought the First Hokage.

And to us, you look like a washed-up, decrepit old man.

That's why it's time for you to die.


The next generation will always surpass the previous one.
It's one of the never-ending cycles in life.



Page 9:
Sign: FIRE
Tsunade: Excellent work, everyone.

Don't get complacent, though.
There are still Akatsuki to deal with.

For now, though, you can all take a break.
You've earned it.

Page 10:
Grave: Sarutobi Asuma

Shikamaru: Should you be out walking around?

Page 11:
Kurenai: You don't have anyone to play Shougi with now, huh?
You were Asuma's favorite student...
You'll be a bit lonely now, I imagine...

Shikamaru: He taught me a lot of stuff...some of it was really profund, and some of it was completely retarded.

Shougi was only one thing.

I could say I'm not sad, but I'd be lying.
The problem is, I'm too old to be acting like a kid,
so I can't lie around crying about it, either.

Page 12:
Shikamaru: When I was a kid, I'd always brush my responsibilities off as "troublesome".
That's why I messed up so often...
And Asuma would have to protect me.

He made for a weird teacher that I could never quite figure out...
But I always thought he was the coolest adult I knew.

And now it's my turn.

[Note the wedding ring on Kurenai's hand.]

Page 13:
Shikamaru: I'll have to protect your kid once its born...
So I've gotta grow up to be a cool adult, too!

Kurenai: Thank you...

Page 14:
Board [tl-br]: Rook
Pawn, Silver

Shikamaru: Damn, Dad. You're a lot better than Asuma.

Board: Silver, Pawn

Shikaku: The "Climbing Silver", huh...

Shikamaru: It's the best way to protect the King from a powerful enemy
without making any sacrifices.

Board: Gold, Silver
Pawn, Pawn
Knight, Pawn

Shikaku: And when you try to escape,
here comes the Knight.

Shikaku: No matter where your Gold goes, the Bishop gets taken out.
Freakin' Knight...

Page 15:
Shikamaru: If you think of the Leaf Shinobi as Shougi pieces,
That'd be me.

Shikaku: Whaa?
Shikamaru: That's what Asuma said.

Shikaku: Haha...he knew you pretty well..
Shikaku: Good ol' Asuma...

Piece: King

Shikaku: So who's the king? [THIS IS IT!]

Page 16:
Shikamaru: The unborn children who'll grow up to be the next generation of Leaf Ninja.
They're the king.

Shikaku: Looks like you understand...

Shikamaru: WHAT?

Shikaku: You're not strong enough to protect the king yet, boy!
You need to focus harder!

Shikamaru: Bullshit!!

Page 17:
Sasuke: Is that all of them?
Ninja: Ugh...

Page 18:
Ninja: A..uh...

Orochimaru: You didn't kill any of them.
You're still too soft.

Sasuke: They aren't the ones I want to kill.
