[Title] Chapter 493: Dark Naruto!!
[Sidebar] The indelible darkness engraved into Naruto's history
 And yet, up 'til now, everyone in the village has treated us like outcasts.
 He looks just like me... / ......Who are you!?
[3 inset] Another Naruto emerges from the Falls of Truth...!?
 Can't you tell by lookin'......? I'm you. / Huh? / I don't remember making a Kagebunshin!
 I'm the real you / The true self that lies at the bottom of your heart
 ...What the hell're you talking about!? / I don't know you! / Enough nonsense!
 They called this the Falls of Truth or something, right? / SUTSU* / To think it could bring me to the surface like this... / Pretty good place!
 ......Basically, I'm the truth inside you / I'm the real you
 ......The real me...?
 Yeah... I'm the hatred you hold dear / I'm your darkness!
 If I've made one mistake
 it's letting myself recklessly catch the eye of that Kyuubi guy
 The Kyuubi's will is a mass of hatred... / No matter how hard ya try ta fight it, it'll join with the hatred that's hidin' in some corner of yer heart and hijack it
 All this time... this guy and the Kyuubi... / KITSU*
 That's right... / I'm the real you / You can't get rid of me, impostor!
 So that's how it is...
 You're the impostor!!
 Y'all islanders step to me, ya gonna take a fall / I blow suckas down like a motherfuckin' squall
 Yer still too soft, Kintoki-chan / Grawr
 Hey, Bee. Since you're just playing around anyway, wouldn't it have been a good idea to take a look at that Kyuubi kid?
 He's a Jinchuuriki, same as you... we should cooperate more... / I don't like that Kyuubi either, but... that kid's got potential
 I was pretty wild back in the day too, but... I've changed since I met you... / And somehow, compared to back in then, you...
 Like they say in rap- Shut up!! / I won't give props to anyone who makes a fool of rap
 Besides, that guy...
 Huff / huff / huff / huff / huff
 Shit! / SUTSU* / ...He really is just as strong as me... If we keep fighting, this'll go on forever...
 You can't take me down... / it's impossible! / SUTSU*
[4 inset] Kagebunshin no Jutsu!!!
 BOBBOBON* / Then I'll fight with numbers!
 BOBOBON* / Kagebunshin no Jutsu!!
 What the hell is up with this!!? / Don't tell me even the number of Kagebunshins is the same!!?
 You catch on quick!
 What's going on?
 DODODODODO* / By sitting in front of the waterfall and concentrating, it's possible to enter the inner world of the mind / and then this waterfall becomes a mirror which reflects your true self... It's a mysterious place
 ...Right now, Naruto's fighting another version of himself
 Kahh!! / Huff / Huff
 Naruto, you okay!? / What happened!? / Another guy just like me appeared...! He was...... / Huff / Huff / ZATSU* / Was what?
 ...the darkness inside me / Huff / Huff / Huff
 I was under pressure... We were an even match, with exactly the same power... / He had all my skills... techniques, tactics, everything was the same... / ...The match just wouldn't end! / Huff / Huff
 If you don't beat him, you won't be able to use the tailed beast's power / DODODODODO*
 How am I supposed to win against a guy like that!? / I don't know... Your guess is as good as mine...
 That octopus guy trained here too, didn't he!? / If I just ask him...
 No...... Judging from his attitude, I don't think he'll teach me...
 Probably not...
 I wonder if the octopus guy had darkness in him too...
 ...Mr. Motoi... Can you tell me the whole story behind the octopus guy...? / Like stuff about how he was growing up or his character... Maybe I can find some kind of hint there...!
 I might figure out how octo-guy and I are different!
 If you're a Jinchuuriki too... You can guess the sort of path through life that existence entails! / Yeah, I can! And that guy should be able to guess how it's been for me, too! So why isn't he helping me, even though he sees me struggling...!?
 I'm not fond of prattling on about other people, but...
 Naruto, since you're a Jinchuuriki, just like Bee-san... / and since stabilizing the Kyuubi is crucial to world peace... Alright
 Thanks, man!!
 ...I said to you earlier... / that since you're a Jinchuuriki as well, you should be able to guess the sort of life that Bee-san had...
 And it's just as you might guess... / Great power gave birth to unease and ill will
 All the villagers hated and avoided Bee-san...
 But Bee-san didn't get depressed or complain / He was always cheerful and determined, and gave off an aura of calm / More than that, perhaps because he was ashamed to be a Jinchuuriki, he was always striving to attract and appeal to people
 The way I see it, it seemed like his way of expressing his pride
[5 inset] Yo-
 As to the question of why a Jinchuuriki had so much pride... / That's probably because...
 Of his big brother... The Raikage
 In order to ensure that the Jinchuuriki wouldn't turn traitor / it's been common since long ago for them to be chosen from among the spouses and siblings of the Five Kages, or others who are close blood relatives / The strength of the Jinchuuriki served to protect the Kage, the head of the village, as well as serving as a display of the Kage's power
 Bee-san probably wanted to become a great Jinchuuriki for Raikage-sama's sake
 It seems he even completed his training at these Falls of Truth in the blink of an eye
 I respect Bee-san from the bottom of my heart / I see him as a hero of Kumogakure
 To think a Jinchuuriki could be so beloved... Bee-san's a great guy, isn't he? / And you... to be able to empathize so well with a Jinchuuriki... / It's no wonder they made you manager of this place...
 That's it!! / Mr. Motoi, you can ask the octopus guy in my place! / About the trick to this training!!
 I... Can't do that... / Why not!?
 I'm not qualified to do that
 I tried to kill Bee-san
 ......What...!? / Didn't you just say you respected the octopus guy!?
 Seems there must be some special circumstances
 So what the heck are they!?
 So this is my confessional...
 I suppose I can tell you, a Jinchuuriki like Bee-san, / about that incident... / That incident...?
 ......It was 30 years ago...
[6 inset] Next chapter, revealing the Hachibi's blood-smeared past!
