Hokage Ryo’s Path Chapter 372 – Yin Kyuubi
“Ahem, Ryo-sama. It might be rude to say such things, but what I’ve heard from Principal-sama was that Kushina-san’s grade in Academy back then was also a mess. And Shikamaru and Shikaku behaved exactly the same.”
Hearing Iruka’s word, Ryo was even more flustered. “Well then, Iruka-sensei. I’ll be going now, Naruto’s punishment will continue tomorrow!” After saying this, Ryo fled from Iruka’s office. He teleported to the training ground and silently snatched Naruto, leaving Shikamaru running alone.
Kushina’s house was exceptionally lively today. Yin Kyuubi, Lain, Shisui, and other several people gathered together to celebrate Naruto’s birthday. Kushina cooked a tableful of a home-cooked meal. She also bought Ichiraku Ramen, Naruto’s favorite ramen. After Ryo brought Naruto back home, the birthday party officially started.
Today was Naruto’s birthday. Ryo was too lazy to punish him. Anyway, it’s his birthday! He should be enjoying things. Everyone had a good time, they chatted and ate. They left after finishing their food. Naruto also went out to play with his friends. Only Kushina, Yin Kyuubi, and Ryo were left at Kushina’s house.
Yin Kyuubi was rarely seen at Konoha. Most of the time, he was outside the village. Ryo had no idea what he was doing.
“Kurama, what have you been doing out there all these years?” Ryo casually asked.
Yin Kyuubi glanced to him, replied lightly, “Nothing, really. Just trying to improve my strength.”
“Improving your strength? Why? Because of what happened 10 years ago?”
Upon hearing the word 10 years ago, Yin Kyuubi’s emotion was agitated, “That masked bastard! Sooner or later, I’ll crush him to death!”
Yamanaka Ryo sighed helplessly. The masked man was Obito. Only he and Rin knew about this, but his identity could not be exposed now.
Now that Ryo had possessed the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, he’d figure out a way to lift the seal from Obito’s brain and help him regain his memory. After Obito’s memory recovered, he would explain to the villagers.
Thinking of this, Ryo laughed and deliberately changed the subject, “Kurama, I restricted Naruto from using your Chakra before. Now, after he’s older, Naruto’s Chakra amount is more than enough. I’m going to teach him how to use your power properly.”
Kurama furrowed at Ryo’s word. “Don’t you think it’s a bit too early? He’s only 10?”
“Not at all. Naruto will graduate from the Ninja Academy in just 1 year time. He will become a ninja, our path has never been easy. He needs this power.”
“Right, the Shinobi World seems peaceful now. But in reality, there is some turmoil hiding undercover. The big ninja villages all hoard their petty intentions, and that mysterious organization in Amegakure is planning something. I think it’s only right to prepare this brat on whatever comes in the future.”
Kurama’s words shocked Ryo, “Kurama, you heard about the Ame organization?”
“Yeah? What’s the big deal? That organization sent someone to contact me, of course, I turned it down.”
“What? They actually… what the hell is going on?” Ryo’s expression changed dramatically as he heard the news. He even pursued the question.
“It was about a year ago. At that time, Sasori and a man with a shark face came to me. They said they were a mercenary organization and wanted me to join them.”
‘A year ago? It seems like the main member of Akatsuki had already assembled. Their reason for inviting Kurama was probably because Orochimaru and I were too close. They felt threatened to let Orochimaru joined the group.’
Thinking of this, Yamanaka Ryu discovered a key problem. Kyuubi was a Bijuu. How could they not find out his identity with Black and White Zetsu’s sense of ability? Or had Black and White Zetsu already known, but pretended not to.
When Kurama saw Yamanaka’s furrowed brows, he asked strangely, “Kid, what you got in mind?”
“Kurama, as far as I know, there’s someone in the organization with extraordinary perceptive abilities who should have discovered that you’re a Biju. I was wondering why they still invited you in even though they know your identity.”
“Haha! Kid, you thought wrong this time. I can guarantee, no one in the Ninja World can find out that I’m a Bijuu. Boy, don’t you feel the difference between my body right now, and when I first got this body 10 years ago?”
“Difference?” Ryo gave off a puzzled look, then closed his eyes to sense the Kyuubi beside him. Ryo felt the Chakra coming from Kurama was a natural Chakra, not the original Kyuubi’s tremendous amount of Chakra.
“What?! How is that even possible? Kurama, how did you do it?!”
“Thanks to this body and your Bijuu. After I got this body 10 years ago, your Bijuu asked me to raise my Spiritual Strength. She said I could be a full Kyuubi. I did as she said and learned your family’s Secret Jutsu and exercised daily. And this body also changed as my Spiritual Strenght increased. As soon as I had this body, I found that the cells were similar to the First Hokage’s cells. I’m still limited by a part of his power. But with the growth of my Spiritual Strength, I found out that the cells of this body could communicate with the Natural Chakra outside. I tried to control the cells to absorb Natural Chakra. Gradually, this body became a status similar to Sage Mode. In this state, my original Chakra was covered with Natural Chakra. No matter how I perceived it, all I could sense was a cloud of Natural Chakra.”
Listening to Kurama’s explanation, Ryo came to a sudden realization and sighed at his good luck.
“Boy, I told you about my situation. But what about you? You must’ve gained so much power from the journey to the Moon!” Yin Kyuubi asked in return.
“You mean this?” Ryo laughed and opened his Sharingan.
Yin Kyuubi looked at the new pattern on Ryo’s eyes and looked like he was stunned. Kurama shook his head and snapped back into reality, “I never thought you’d actually get the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. Now you’re at the same level of Senju Hashirama and Uchiha Madara back then.”
Ryo laughed, “My strength now is only at the limit of what a human could achieve. I’m not at the level of a God yet.”
“God? You mean the Rikudou Sennin?” Kurama was startled by Ryo’s words.
“Well yeah! My goals have always been becoming the strongest person in the Ninja World. And Rikudou Sennin’s power is the most powerful force in the world.”
“Hahaha! I have no idea you set your goals at Rikudou Sennin. You really impressed me, kid!”
Ryo smiled and asked, “Kurama, do you think I can do it?”
Yin Kyuubi was stunned at the words. He solemnly said, “If it’s you, I think you can make it.”
