“Isn’t it too much to draw that kind of thing in public…?”
“Isn’t that Hokage-sama’s student!?”
“What a shame…”
Seeing the third Hokage appeared, the onlookers immediately made all kinds of noises in the distance.
“What’s wrong with drawing this? This is art!”
Jiraiya blushed, followed by incomprehensible words such as “natural beauty” and “human art.”
“Jiraiya, take your training now!”
Facing Hiruzen, Jiraiya can only put away his tools in disappointment.
“It’s a good thing to have passion and determination, but you must place it in the right place…”
Hiruzen Sarutobi scolded patiently.
“I’m sorry, Sensei…”
Jiraiya also frowned with regret.
“If you don’t start your training now, you will be left behind by Tsunade and Orochimaru.”
“I want to be as strong as Orochimaru!”
Jiraiya heard it, then exploded and said unconvinced, “I will be going to Mount Myoboku later to train.”
“Oh? Isn’t it will be a Chuunin exam in the next ten days? If you can keep up this confidence, you surely can prove yourself on the exam.”
Hiruzen Sarutobi said with a smile.
“I will surpass Orochimaru!”
Jiraiya was heavily motivated all of a sudden. Then he immediately left the store.
“What a simple-minded..”
Akabane sighed silently.
Hiruzen also knew that, and just because of his little motivational speech, Jiraiya took it wholeheartedly.
“He has the same character as Naruto, isn’t he?”
Hiruzen smiled softly as he was smoking from his pipe, then looked at Akabane’s 4th volume.
He hasn’t read it that far, but Uchiha didn’t make any trouble anymore yesterday. Hiruzen doesn’t know what happened behind it, but he could see that they’ve reached some agreement and compromise.
So he picked up the comic and just looked at what inside.
Although I saw some through my telescope, I couldn’t read it up close.
“Well… after only used a few ninjutsu, Kakashi fainted.. isn’t he embarrassing the Hatake clan?”
Hiruzen suddenly jumped out of such a question.
“That’s the price he paid.”
“Hahaha, I just said it out of nowhere, don’t mind me.”
Hiruzen continued to read and then paused on a certain page. Akabane glanced at the place where Haku appeared.
Oh, its Zabuza and Haku…
Hiruzen could feel Akabane’s gaze and took a look at his pocket.
Hiruzen looked stiff.
“Sarutobi-sensei… if you don’t bring any money, I can give this comic for free.”
Akabane smiled lightly.
“Well… I forgot to bring some, but it still needs to be paid for. I will send someone a hundred taels when I o back.”
Hiruzen’s face blushed.
Because I’m a shadow clone, I didn’t bring any money with me when I went out. I just habitually touched my pockets before I remembered about this.
Afterward, he pulled out his pipe as he was leaving.
“Sensei, Be careful on your way.”
Akabane bowed, and when the Third Hokage had left, several people came out of the store.
They looked back at Hiruzen’s figure and then said in amazement: “Even Hokage-sama likes reading comics. Unbelievable!”
“Of course, I have to give my comic to Hokage as a review.”
Akabane proudly said it.
But these people reminded him that the next time he makes a slogan, it should be added-
“Comics that even Hokage loves.”
“I want to buy ten comics…”
At this time, there was a sudden voice came from outside, and everyone immediately turned their heads and looked over.
He looked arrogant, with a fan symbol on his back.
Akabane glanced at him, and he always looked familiar, and he seemed to have played against each other, but he thought about everything. Akabane can’t remember a single name.
The other person glanced at him, then moved his eyes nervously, pretending that he didn’t see it.
“Ryuu Uchiha, okay, these are your ten comics.”
Kasumi enthusiastically took ten copies from the bookshelf, stacked them in, and then handed it to Ryuu.
As soon as he heard the name, Akabane remembered.
Ryuu Uchiha was his classmate who caused trouble on an opening day.
Sure enough… Ryuu was charmed by the comic and now bought up to ten comics at once!
“And I also want some of the 3rd volumes as well, please…”
Ryuu said it with a little bit rushed and turned his body sideways, for fear of getting caught by Akabane.
Akabane is no stranger to this expression.
Most otakus met their acquaintances on the street, probably with this expression, including Akabane from his previous life…
“Okay, right away!”
Ryuu then threw four thousand taels on the table.
Kasumi chuckled happily, and his movements were a lot more awkward-he bought ten copies of the 4th volume in one go. Uchiha clan is really rich!
But Ryuu’s outfit looked so familiar…
Akabane took a closer look.
Black hair, blue shirt, white short pants ……
It’s almost identical to Sasuke! Except for being left behind, resulting in, he got no protective gear.
Is he cosplaying!?
Akabane was shocked as he inspected Ryuu throughout.
“These are your comics.”
Kasumi folded the rest, wrapped it in cloth, and rolled up a large pile.
There’s so much of it!?
Ryuu stayed for a while, then gritted his teeth and picked it up, and casually walked to the Uchiha’s residence.
“Kasumi, does he come here often?”
Akabane asked curiously.
“Yes, he has come here. Every new volume has been released.”
“When did he start dressing up like that?”
“Oh, did you talk about his outfit? It seems like this happened a few days ago.”
Kasumi said after a moment of recollection.
“A few days ago, huh…”
“Without a doubt, he was cosplaying!”
Akabane was startled.
If more people in Konoha love comics the way Ryuu did, maybe a comic exhibition can be held.
“Akabane-sama, what is cosplay?”
Kasumi asked curiously.
“It’s a kind of people who dress up like the character from the comics.”
Akabane explained roughly, thinking secretly in his heart.
The more I think about this, the more I think it is feasible, Ninja could transform themselves using ninjutsu, and it won’t hurt if they are using it as cosplay.
“When I’m done with the business on the Land of Waves, I should arrange this kind of activity.”
Akabane was excited just to think about all the fun, but it could be troublesome for him.
As the organizer, there are too many things to do. The most important thing is that there are still a lot of stories from the Land of Wave’s ark.
“Forget it… Kasumi, I’m going back. Take care from here. Once you’re free, count the commission for the printing.
Akabane waved his hand.
After doing missions back to back, I finally managed to rush out the 5th volume, so I had to take a break once in a while.
“Please leave it to me,” Kasumi replied as he sorted out the money he had just collected.
To be honest, Akabane doesn’t know how much the store earns every day, but he did not doubt Kasumi.
Fortunately, Kasumi was in charge of some of the accounting in the clan before, and by that, he could save Akabane a lot of problems.
Otherwise, it would cause him headaches day and night.
