Hokage Ryo’s Path Chapter 369 – Flutter
According to Shisui’s instruction, Hyuga Toyota got up and said, “Tsunade-sama, what’s the meaning of this?!”
Tsunade twitched her lips but didn’t speak. Her case was unique. Every word she said, she didn’t only represent herself but also the entire Senju Clan. That’s why she didn’t know what to say.
Seeing this, Yamanaka Ryo immediately said, “I think every Hyuga Clan is a member of Konoha. Regardless of being the Main or Branch Family. Since you’re all family, the clan separation system doesn’t need to exist!”
Everyone from the Main Family clan member glared at Ryo. The second Elder immediately said, “This is Hyuga Clan’s business. You have no right to interfere!”
Hyuga Hizashi immediately responded after he realized Ryo and Tsunade were on their side. Hizashi said, “Hyuga Clan is a resident of Konoha, so Ryo-sama is naturally eligible to ask.”
Hyuga Toyota snorted coldly. “Qualified? On what basis? He’s not a village official or Elder. Why should he meddle in our clan’s business?”
“Right. I’m not the village official or Elder, but I’m powerful! Powerful people always had a place in the Ninja World. Who dares to challenge me?”
After finished talking, Ryo emanated a suppressing murderous aura. Everyone, except Tsunade, was stunned. Tsunade glanced at the shivering Hyuga clan members. “What makes you dare to offend this boy to your own death?”
But shortly after, Tsunade noticed trembling Hinata, who was hiding in the corner, protecting her younger sister. Tsunade frowned and said, “Boy, enough with that! There are two children over there!”
Ryo snapped back to reality. He remembered that Hyuga sisters were still here. His gaze shifted towards trembling Hinata in the corner. Seeing her pale face, he quickly dissipated his murderous aura. Everyone was relieved. A lot of people fell to the ground.
“Now, great Elder. Do you still think I’m not worthy?”
Hyuga Toyota was silent. He came here because Shisui controlled over him. Now he had served his purpose. Everything was to make the Branch Family clan members hate him. The other clan members thought the Great Elder silence as a tacit acknowledgment. After all, Yamanaka Ryo’s murderous aura just now was indeed terrifying. There was no shame in admitting it.
“Ryo-sama, we, the Hyuga Clan, have been practicing the clan separation system since ancient times. Yet you wanted us to abolish the system. Isn’t it a bit inappropriate?” The second Elder asked cautiously.
Ryo snorted at the words, “Oh, since the beginning of time? That means the Hyuga Clan has been wrong for the whole time? Yet you all thought you were doing the right thing.”
“We’ve been wrong the whole time? What does Ryo-sama mean?” The third Elder pursued the question.
Instead of explaining to them, Ryo changed the subject, “Does the Hyuga Clan even know who your ancestor was?”
The clan members were stunned. They glanced at each other and shook their head.
“If you really don’t know, then I’ll tell you something. The ancestor of the Hyuga Clan was a man named Otsutsuki Hamura, Rikudou Sennin’s brother.”
Yamanaka Ryo’s word was like a blasting bomb, stunning every Hyuga clan members present.
A few moments later, Hyuga Hizashi was the first to regain his senses. He asked, “Ryo-sama, isn’t the Rikudou Sennin just a legend?”
“Of course not. Rikudou Sennin’s real name was Otsutsuki Hagoromo. They were both the founders of the Art of Ninja. Senju, Uchiha, and Uzumaki were all descendants of Rikudou Sennin. The existence of these three clans was proof that the Rikudou Sennin wasn’t a legend.”
Tsunade, who was just observing, was also shocked by Ryo’s word. “Hey, kid! Are you telling me the truth?”
Ryo nodded. He secretly established a Spiritual link with Tsunade, “Tsunade-sama, there’s a stone tablet in the Uchiha Clan’s Nanga Shrine which was left by Rikudou Sennin. The content of the tablet can only be read with Mangekyou Sharingan. As my Mangekyou Sharingan evolves, it sees more and more things. My eyes are now Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. I read it all from this stone tablet.”
After listening to Ryo’s sound transmission, Tsunade recalled something the First Hokage said to her. He had mentioned that the Uchiha Clan had a stone tablet that had been passed down since ancient times. Thinking of this, Tsunade completely believed Ryo’s word. “All these years, Uchiha and Senju had been fighting for so many years, and to learn that we’re actually related. How ironic.”
“I was shocked, too, when I first learn about it,” Ryo said to Tsunade.
“Well, continue on what you’re about to do! I need to calm myself down.”
Yamanaka Ryo smiled and disconnected the Spiritual link. He continued speaking to the Hyuga Clan, “Your ancestor, Otsutsuki Hamura, migrated to the Moon with a part of his clan members for some reason. They also inherited Byakugan. But they didn’t have this so-called Main and Branch separation system, even this Caged Bird Jutsu was destroyed by them.”
Ryo’s half-true words didn’t convince the clan. He himself understood that words alone weren’t enough. “I know you don’t believe me. So don’t fight back, I’ll show you some of my memories.” Ryo opened Mangekyou Sharingan.
The second Elder was startled upon hearing this, he asked, “Memory? Ryo-sama, you mean you’ve been to the moon and saw the Hyuga clan there?”
“If I hadn’t gone to the moon and was entrusted by them, do you think I would waste my time meddling with the Hyuga Clan business? Well, I’m not going to bother explaining to you if it’s true or not. You should see it for yourselves.”
The Branch Family knew Yamanaka Ryo was helping them and didn’t resist. The Main Family clan members also wanted to verify what Ryo just said. They gave up resisting after some hesitation. They were soon hypnotized by the Mangekyou’s Genjutsu. With Otsutsuki Hana as his main focus, Ryo created a scene of the Hyuga clan members being joyful on the moon.
A moment later, the illusion was lifted. The clan members of the Branch Family were all silent. They didn’t expect that there really would be people on the moon who had the same Byakugan and got along well.
“Could it be that all these years, what we’ve been doing was wrong?” The second Elder began to falter a bit.
“But, this could also be an illusion from Yamanaka Ryo!” The third Elder was still skeptical, he whispered a reminder to his companion.
“But it doesn’t look fake. And from the building and the conversation, it looks like it’s really happened. With his strength, there’s no way Ryo-sama could do such illusion.”
The second Elder’s words left the third Elder speechless. Especially when he was reminded about Ryo’s strength. With his current power, it would be easy to kill everyone in the Hyuga Clan. Now that Hyuga Hiashi had possessed the secret Jutsu that could be passed down on the Branch Family. The Main Family was now practically useless, yet Yamanaka Ryo didn’t kill them.
Thinking of this, the third Elder looked at Ryo with a complicated expression.
