Hokage Ryo’s Path Chapter 379, Kakashi, and Team 7.
Like in the original manga, Kakashi’s lateness made Naruto’s team uneasy. Naruto had been sheltered by Yamanaka Ryo and Kushina since he was little and had no fear of anything. In the original manga, Naruto put a blackboard eraser on the door frame. This time, it was replaced with a large bucket of water.
A few moments later, Kakashi slowly walked into the classroom. He glanced at the water bucket above the door frame, laughed, and pushed open the door. Just before the water poured on Kakashi’s head, Raiton Chakra appeared on Kakashi’s body, and he teleported behind Naruto.
“That’s… Body Flicker Jutsu? How… is it… so fast?” Sakura was startled by Kakashi’s sudden movement.
“Idiot. That’s not an ordinary Body Flicker Jutsu. It’s an Instant Lightning Technique. It uses Raiton Chakra to stimulate cell activity to achieve the effect of high-speed movement. The speed is much faster than an ordinary Body Flicker Jutsu.” Sasuke explained with a serious expression.
“It’s not just an ordinary Instant Lightning body! How did you do that?” Naruto, who was close to Yamanaka Ryo, wasn’t clear about Ryo’s signature Body Flicker Jutsu. Also, Ryo taught him, so Naruto can recognize the difference.
“That’s right! I can recognize the difference.”
“Hmph! You haven’t told me who you are!”
“Me? I’m your sensei. Come along now, upstairs.” Kakashi’s silhouette disappeared.
The three kids glanced at each other. Both Sasuke and Naruto saw the determination in their eyes.
A few moments later, the team arrived upstairs.
“You’re so slow. It’s my first impression of you. Well, it’s normal, but the procedure should be conducted anyway. So, let me introduce myself first.” Kakashi said.
“Usually, the sensei introduced themselves first.” Sakura muttered.
“Alright, then I’ll be the first. My name is Hatake Kakashi. I like what I like, I don’t like what I don’t like, and I don’t want to tell you my ambitions… my interests are diverse…”
“You call that an introduction? We can only know your name!” Sakura complained again.
“Idiot. Just knowing his name is enough.” Sasuke glanced at Sakura as he spoke.
Sakura glanced with shock at her crush. Lowered her head and not daring to make another complaint.
“Hey! Do you have to be this rude?” Unlike in the original manga, Naruto didn’t like Sakura that much. But Sasuke was his rival, he would do everything to confront him.
“Are you an idiot? Don’t you feel something familiar when you hear his name?
“Familiar? What do you mean?”
“Hmph! You’re really an idiot. Hatake Kakashi is Hokage-sama’s son, the disciple, or Yondaime-sama. He graduated from the Ninja Academy at 5, Chunin at 6, Jounin at 12, entered the Anbu, and soon took over as the Anbu Captain a few years later. That’s our sensei.”
Sakura didn’t know what Anbu meant. But Sakura understood he’s amazing because he graduated as Jounin at 12. Whereas she, at 12, just graduated from the Ninja Academy.
Naruto was also surprised to hear Kakashi’s background. After he recovered from his shock, he boasted, “Huh? Is that something great? Well, I’ll work hard to surpass him!”
“Hey! You’re being rude!”
Sasuke ignored Naruto and introduced himself to Kakashi. “I’m Uchiha Sasuke. There’s nothing I like, there’s a lot of things I don’t like. My dream is to find someone.”
Kakashi nodded, his eyes stared in puzzlement. Looking at Sasuke, he was reminded of Sasuke’s genius big brother.
Seeing Sasuke finish with his introduction, Naruto continued, “I like instant noodles, but my favorite is Ichiraku Ramen. I hate waiting for instant ramen to cook. My interest is to taste and compare various instant noodles.”
Kakashi sweatdropped. He secretly thought, “Is this really sensei’s son?”
However, Kakashi smiled when he heard Naruto’s next sentence. “My dream is to become the Hokage. I want to make the whole village know who I am!”
“My turn! I’m Haruno Sakura. I like… no, the person I like is…” Sakura looked at Sasuke on her side.
“My interest is… my future dream is…” Sakura glanced at Sasuke as she introduced herself.
‘It’s all about love’ Kakashi thought, “What about something you hate?”
“Hate? Probably… it’s Ino!” Sakura pondered and later decisively answered the question.
“Alright, we’re done with the introduction. That’s all for today! See you tomorrow morning at the 3rd training stadium to accept your real graduation exam! Remember! Don’t eat anything!” Kakashi’s figure disappeared again, leaving the three kids puzzled.
Early in the morning, the team came to the 3rd training stadium. Yamanaka Ryo went to the stadium at 11 o’clock. He was interested in seeing the 3 kid’s test compared to the original manga. After watching the test, he will leave the village to deal with some things.
Now, he had evolved his Sharingan into Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. During the past 2 years, he had familiarized himself with Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan’s power. Now, it’s time to solve the seal in Obito’s brain.
There was also Yahiko’s matter. Now, he had been resurrected for 12 years. During those years, Ryo had asked Orochimaru to restrain Yahiko from leaving. Although feeling awkward, he stayed with Orochimaru with no complaint. Ryo didn’t let Yahiko return because he had his own ideas. After his return, Nagato’s heart would be moved. It will make a great impact on the plot.
Yamanaka Ryo wanted to fight Uchiha Madara and also wanted to meet Kaguya. So Yahiko cannot return now.
As for the reason why he wanted to lift the seal from Obito’s brain, Ryo felt Obito would understand him somehow, and cooperate.
Soon, he arrived at the third training stadium. It was already past 11 o’clock, and Kakashi hadn’t arrived yet. The kids’ stomach growling. Obviously, they were hungry. Ryo laughed silently but kept his presence hidden in a nearby tree.
After another 10 minutes, Kakashi finally arrived and smiled at the kids, “I’m sorry, I lost my way in life, so I was a bit late! But there’s still some time left, are you ready?”
