Chapter 342: King
Side: The view is always better from high ground! It's awesome! It's the best! Let's climb the stairs together, step by step!
Stepping on grass
Shaking cigarette pac
Pakkun: Here you are!
SFX:　ザッ　ザッ
Shikamaru: Reinforcements? Youre a little late though, arent you?
Shikamaru, you did an Akatsuki in by yourself?
Sai: Hes more impressive than I thought
Puts back into purse
Shikamaru: This time I really had to do it, so yeah
Yeah, I guess
Shikamaru: Whats going on over at the others?
Sakura: We left them to go and help you, so
Sai: Lets go back to them.
Ino: Id never have thought you used your real body for that distraction
Medical chakra booming
Youre no Shikamaru, but
Youre pretty smart too, arent you, Naruto?
Comparing me with Shikamaru, huh
Using that new jutsu three times is rather impressive. During training, you could barely use it twice.
To come up with a new strategy so fast after failing in his first attempt
He believes strongly in himself.
Naruto has truly become strong. Taking a jutsu that even the 4th could complete to this level
Perhaps its already time for this new generation to take over now. I wonder if hes already surpassed me
Can you feel it
You, who have always been there in front of his eyes
Naruto is steadily getting stronger
Yamato: Its time to go, senpai.
Yamato: Allright everyone, lets go back to Konoha village, shall we?
Ino: What about Kakashi sensei?
Yamato: Hell deal the final blow.
to be beaten
by kids like you
Kakashi: Well, to someone who fought the 1st Hokage
I guess we do look like kids
However, from our point of view, youre nothing but a crazy old man.
Thus, here you lie in the dirt, and now your time to die has come.
Chidori chirping noise
From one generation to the next
The following one will continue to surpass the previous.
Tsundade: Great work, everyone.
However, Akatsuki is still out there
So, dont let your guard down just yet.
For now though, you can all take a well deserved break.
Grave: Sarutobi Asuma.
Shikamaru: Should you really be walking around like this?
Kurenai: Your shougi partner isnt around anymore
You were his favourite student
You must get lonely, no?
Shikamaru: He taught me both very important things and complete rubbish. Shougi was only one of those things.
Saying Im not lonely would be lying, but I belong to a generation needing to grow up now, so I cant just lie down crying forever.
was always complaing, taking no responsibilities.
Because of that childish behaviour, I often messed up
and Asuma would have to watch my back
He was a strange teacher who I could never quite grasp
But to me, he was the coolest adult there was.
Shikamaru: From here on, its my turn.
Shikamaru: Because Ill protect that child when its born.
Until then, I have to become a cool adult too!
Shikamaru: As expected, Asuma was nothing compared to you, old man.
Shikaku: A bougin (climbing silver), huh?
Shikamaru: To protect your king against more powerful opponents, its sometimes necessary to make sacrifices.
And when you try to make your escape, theres the knight.
Shikaku: No matter where the gold goes, the bishop will be taken out.
Heh, damn that knight
Shikamaru: If the shinobi of Konoha were shougi pieces, Id be that knight.
Shikaku: Whats that supposed to mean?
Shikamaru: Thats what Asuma told me.
He really did get your personality. That Asuma
Well then, who would the king of Konoha be then?
The children who will one day carry Konoha on their shoulders
They are the king.
Shikaku: You get it pretty well, huh? Hehe
Shikaku: You still dont have the strenght to protect the king, do you? Keep at it, will ya!
Drives sword into ground
Sasuke: Is that all there is?
Orochimaru: You still havent finished them off. Still too soft
Sasuke: There are other people I want to kill.
Next: Orochimaru makes his move
