I just wanna protect them
Title: I just wanna protect them
Text: These three want to stand on top of the world!
Yahiko: Nagato...you can't just stand around crying!
If you just bawl every time you're beaten down, nothing will change...
Just like the rain.
But I'm gonna transform this country!
Yahiko: And to do that we need more than talk, we need strength!
We'll learn ninjutsu!
Nagato: We started looking for surviving shinobi,
and we found three of them fighting Hanzou.
We found Jiraiya-sense...
Jiraiya: Who're YOU?!
Nagato: I couldn't get past the fact they were Leaf ninja.
I trust...you understand why.
Orochimaru: Why don't we just kill them and be done with it?
Orochimaru: All these kids orphaned by the war have nothing but pain and suffering waiting for them.
It'd be much more merciful to just kill them now.
Are you off your goddamned rocker, Orochimaru?
Look, you and Tsunade go on ahead, I'll take care of them for a while.
Jiraiya: Just until they can fend for themselves.
It's the least I can do to make up for all this...
Nagato: But Jiraiya-sensei seemed different from the rest.
And soon after the four of us began living together, there was...an incident.
Naruto: What happened?
Nagato: A wandering shinobi attacked us.
After Yahiko was nearly killed, I somehow ended up killing him.
Completely unaware of how I did it...
I discovered I had a unique gift.
The eyes called the "Rinnegan."
They are what changed Jiraiya-sensei's mind about teaching us ninjutsu.
He began training all three of us.
He claimed he was teaching us to defend ourselves,
but it felt like he was helping me gain control over the Rinnegan.
Nagato: I feared my powers.
My rage made me go berzerk.
I felt so guilty...I was sure I was in the wrong...
But sensei was there to console me.
Jiraiya: I don't know if what you did was right or wrong, either.
But Yahiko only survived because of you.
Protecting your friend, at least, was definitely the right thing to do.
No one would blame you.
Nagato: That's when I realized I had accepted sensei for who he was.
Nagato: He continued,
"Being hurt breeds hate for your attacker."
"Hurting others causes them to hate us AND makes us feel guilty."
But knowing what it feels like to be hurt is exactly why we try to be kind to others.
Learning what pain is helps us grow.
He told me I would have to figure out how to grow up on my own.
To learn what pain is, and figure out the right way to respond.
Jiraiya-sensei seemed to be explaining it to himself as well as me.
He didn't yet have an answer...
And neither did you.
Nagato: But I found mine right away.
I just wanna keep them safe.
No matter what kinda pain I have to go through.
Jiraiya: I see...
what are you always thinking about?
Jiraiya: How the world is full of strife...drowning in its own hatred.
Trying to figure out how to stop it...
Trying to figure out what "peace" really is.
Nagato: Three years later, we had grown up a bit, in mind and body.
But sensei's words were always in the back of my mind.
I knew he had left the task of finding the answer to me, and my Rinnegan.
Jiraiya: Long, long ago,
people were locked in endless war...
War far worse than anything you've ever seen.
As if from nowhere, a lone monk appeared...
That monk tried to bring peace to the world. He was the first to unravel the mysteries of chakra,
and traveled the world preaching a religion he named "Nin-Shuu." [H: I really wanted to go Nin-jism, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. But hey, jism. Haha.]
As time wore on, "Nin-shuu" became known as "Ninjutsu."
Not the weapon we know today, but teachings meant to lead the world into an era of peace.
Jiraiya: That monk was called "The Sage of the Six Paths."
He was called a savior, a messiah...and he had the Rinnegan, just like you.
He himself claimed "I come to bring peace and salvation,"
believing there would come a time when men would truly understand one another.
You may very well be the Sage himself, reborn into this world.
I feel like his mission lives on in you when I look into your eyes.
Nagato: I would bring peace...
with those words, sensei left us for good.
With Yahiko as our leader, the three of us began our work.
In no time, our group was quite famous.
Nagato: We rounded up others with the same ideals: peace through cooperation and compromise, not power and violence.
But war raged on between three of the Great Countries - the Stone, the Leaf, and the Sand.
Our group grew until the Hidden Rain's chief, Hanzou, could no longer ignore us.
He approached us personally,
offering to put us in charge of negotiating a truce between the three countries.
We were to use our strength and resources to end the war.
Obviously, it appeared to be a worthy cause, and we agreed.
Nagato: But we were still naive children...that move
resulted in disaster.
Nagato: Our foolishness got Yahiko killed.
Nagato: Hanzo tricked us.
He was getting nervous that our group would try to usurp him.
His...his STUPID greed killed Yahiko...
The next day, we gathered to begin negotiation,
but were surrounded by Hanzou's forces and the Leaf's ANBU.
Led by the Leaf ninja Danzou, they had come to assassinate us.
Danzou joined with Hanzou so he could sieze the title of Hokage.
Hanzou joined with Danzou to protect his power.
Hanzou: Your organization has become a problem.
Yahiko...as the leader, you will pay the ultimate price.
Fight back, and the girl dies.
Hanzou: You, with the red hair. Kill Yahiko immediately,
and I will let the girl do.
Konan: Don't do it, Nagato!
Forget me, save yourselves!
Nagato: I just wanna keep them safe.
No matter what kinda pain I have to go through.
Hanzou: NOW! Or do you WANT to see this girl die?!
And Konan...stay alive...
You're...the savior...of the world...
Nagato: That was the second suffering.
I had grown up, and I had changed nothing.
It was just like when my parents died...
I finally realized that my answer wasn't worth shit.
