Naruto 342

Naruto Chp. 342

+ posted by lee-nus as translation on Feb 16, 2007 15:18 | Go to Naruto

-> RTS Page for Naruto 342

It took me a little while, but here it is! It will be improved as soon as I can make time for it, and I'll add SFX and page numbers as well. Just wanted to have something to post for now! Look forward to the final version! ^^

Oh, and this translation is for JapFlap only so please dont use it for any other scans...! :amuse


COVER/Page 1

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!


Page 2

SFX: ザッ
Stepping on grass

SFX: スタスタ
Shaking cigarette pac

Pakkun: Here you are!

SFX: ザッ ザッ

Shikamaru: Reinforcements? You’re a little late though, aren’t you?

Sakura: What? …Shikamaru, you did an ”Akatsuki” in by yourself?

Sai: He’s more impressive than I thought…

SFX: ズッ
Puts back into purse

Page 3

Shikamaru: This time I really had to do it, so yeah…

Sakura: …
Yeah, I guess…

Shikamaru: What’s going on over at the others?

Sakura: We left them to go and help you, so…
Sai: Let’s go back to them.

Page 4

Ino: I’d never have thought you used your real body for that distraction…

SFX: ブウウン
Medical chakra booming

Chouji: Hehe… You’re no Shikamaru, but… You’re pretty smart too, aren’t you, Naruto?

Naruto: Heh… Comparing me with Shikamaru, huh…

Yamato: However… Using that new jutsu three times is rather impressive. During training, you could barely use it twice.

Page 5

Kakashi: …
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 it’s already time for this new generation to take over now. I wonder if he’s already surpassed me…

Can you feel it…?

Page 6

You, who have always been there in front of his eyes…
Naruto is steadily getting stronger…
Right, Sasuke…?

Yamato: It’s time to go, senpai.

Kakashi: Yeah…

Page 7

Yamato: Allright everyone, let’s go back to Konoha village, shall we?

Ino: What about Kakashi sensei?

Yamato: He’ll deal the final blow.

SFX: ザッ

Kakuzu: Guh…
For me… to be beaten… by kids like you…

Page 8

Kakashi: Well, to someone who fought the 1st Hokage…
I guess we do look like kids…
However, from our point of view, you’re nothing but a crazy old man.
Thus, here you lie in the dirt, and now your time to die has come.

SFX: バチチチチチ
Chidori chirping noise

From one generation to the next… The following one will continue to surpass the previous.

SFX: ガッ

Page 9

Tsundade: Great work, everyone.
However, Akatsuki is still out there… So, don’t let your guard down just yet.
For now though, you can all take a well deserved break.

Page 10

Grave: Sarutobi Asuma.

Shikamaru: Should you really be walking around like this?

Kurenai: !

Page 11

Kurenai: Your shougi partner isn’t 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 I’m not lonely would be lying, but I belong to a generation needing to grow up now, so I can’t just lie down crying forever.

Kurenai: …

Page 12

Shikamaru: I… 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, it’s my turn.

SFX: スッ
Turns head

Page 13

Shikamaru: Because I’ll protect that child when it’s born.
Until then, I have to become a cool adult too!

Kurenai: …Thank you.

Page 14

Shikamaru: As expected, Asuma was nothing compared to you, old man.

シカク 「棒銀か」
Shikaku: A “bougin” (climbing silver), huh?

Shikamaru: To protect your “king” against more powerful opponents, it’s sometimes necessary to make sacrifices.
And when you try to make your escape, there’s the “knight”.

Shikaku: No matter where the “gold” goes, the “bishop” will be taken out.
Heh, damn that knight…

Page 15

Shikamaru: If the shinobi of Konoha were shougi pieces, I’d be that knight.

Shikaku: What’s that supposed to mean?

Shikamaru: That’s what Asuma told me.

Shikaku: Heh… He really did get your personality. That Asuma… Well then, who would the ”king” of Konoha be then?

Page 16

Shikamaru: .....
The children who will one day carry Konoha on their shoulders… They are the ”king”.

Shikaku: You get it pretty well, huh? Hehe…checkmate.

Shikamaru: Aa!

Shikaku: You still don’t have the strenght to protect the king, do you? Keep at it, will ya!

Shikamaru: Daaaaamn!

SFX: ガッ
Drives sword into ground

Page 17-18

Sasuke: Is that all there is?

SFX いてエー

It… hurts…

Orochimaru: You still haven’t finished them off. Still too soft…

Sasuke: There are other people I want to kill.

Next: Orochimaru makes his move…!
