Hokage Ryo's Path

Hokage Ryo’s Path Chapter 438


Everything that was related to Danzo’s name, Yamanaka Ryo felt a headache. This ninja sword summon scroll wasn’t something to be retrieved.

Yamanaka Inoichi also understood what kind of person Danzo was. So, he could only sigh and didn’t hold much hope.

The Third Hokage was a little embarrassed when he saw this. After all, he was the one who kept the ninja sword summon scroll in the first place. Now, he was also responsible for losing it, and Danzo was already dead.

The Third Hokage said thoughtfully, “Ryo, Inoichi, don’t worry. I will let my direct Anbu and Sarutobi Clan help find it. I promise to do my best to help you get back ninja sword summon scrolls.”

Yamanaka Inoichi shook his head, “Sandaime, you don’t have to. The ninja sword summons scroll itself is a condition for her to marry me. She gave the scroll to the village, which means that it is already the village’s property. What I’m concerned about doesn’t matter.”

“As for the Kirigakure…” Yamanaka Inoichi turned his attention to Yamanaka Ryo.

Ryo laughed and said, “I will go to Kirigakure and explain to them personally.”

After Third Hokage heard this, he smiled and did not say anything more.

Just after the two left, he directly gathered all the members of Anbu that he could command to search for the ninja sword summon scroll secretly.


After returning to Yamanaka Clan, Yamanaka Ryo and Yamanaka Inoichi went straight to the room where Ao was imprisoned.

Yamanaka Inoichi wanted to search Ao’s memory and try his luck. However, he was stopped by Yamanaka Ryo, “Brother Inoichi, leave it to me!”

Yamanaka Inoichi frowned asked, “Ryo, what do you want to do?”

“Just now at the Third Hokage’s place, I said I would personally go to Kirigakure. I want to take him with me.” Yamanaka Ryo pointed to Ao as he said.

Yamanaka Inoichi had some hesitation. Going to Kirigakure wasn’t a trivial matter. He initially thought that Yamanaka Ryo would go to Kirigakure in the name of post-war negotiations. However, he didn’t expect Yamanaka Ryo to sneak in now and bring a high level of Kirigakure with him.

Knowing the concerns of Yamanaka Inoichi, Yamanaka Ryo smiled and said, “Brother Inoichi, don’t forget that I will be a hydro teleport and a time-space barrier. I will go, and no one could stop me. Besides, I can only be trifling Kirigakure, and it won’t hurt me.”

Ao ignored Yamanaka Ryo, but his shaking hands betrayed his inner emotions.

During the Third Shinobi World War, the scene of Yamanaka Ryo fighting the entire Kirigakure alone was still vividly remembered.

Now, Kirigakure had lost a Sanbi Jinchuriki and many Kekkei Genkai Ninja. It was not as strong as Kirigakure from the Third Shinobi World War.

Moreover, Yamanaka Ryo’s progress in strength over the years was too great. Ao knew that Yamanaka Ryo spoke the truth about the fact was that Kirigakure had no way to deal with him. He really had the strength to destroy Kirigakure.

With this thought, Ao couldn’t help but was caught for so many days and started to talk for the first time and said, “Yamanaka Ryo, what do you want?”

“Don’t be nervous! I just want to go to Kirigakure to ask your Mizukage to explain the situation. She and I have known each other too. She shouldn’t refuse me, right?”

Once again, Ao was silent.

After a long time, he sighed and said, “It looks like we don’t have any other choice.”

Yamanaka Ryo laughed and said to Yamanaka Inoichi, “Brother Inoichi, Ao has agreed, he will be responsible for my safety, so rest assured.”

Yamanaka Inoichi was still very uneasy, but he knew that he couldn’t stop Yamanaka Ryo. Fortunately, he didn’t bother to talk and let Yamanaka Ryo unlock Ao’s seal.

What wasn’t expected was that after Yamanaka Ryo unlocked Ao’s seal, Ao showed no signs of trying to escape or resist.

“Not bad! You’re pretty good. I hope you can be that good when we go to Kirigakure.”

After speaking, Yamanaka Ryo’s hand was placed on Ao’s shoulder.

The silhouette of the two disappeared in front of Yamanaka Inoichi.


At Kirigakure, Mizukage’s office. Terumi Mei recently received the information about the Chunin exam.

The information said: Konoha had been buried with a large number of Explosive Tags by Stone Ninja. Halfway through the Chunin exam, Onoki detonated the Explosive Tag, and most of Konoha was destroyed.

[[Author’s note: other people didn’t know who put the Explosive Tag was. The default was Iwagakure]]

However, the thin dead camel was bigger than the horse. Konoha’s masters caught all the Stone Ninja and Mist Ninja in Konoha.

Terumi Mei looked at this information over and over again.

She always felt that something was wrong, but she couldn’t think of it for a while. When she was puzzled, two people in the Mizukage office suddenly appeared in front of her.

Terumi Mei was stunned by the sudden appearance of the two. Yamanaka Ryo laughed and said, “Why don’t you recognize an old friend? It’s unfortunate.”

Upon hearing this, Terumi Mei took a deep breath and calmed herself. After a while, Terumi Mei asked seriously. “Yamanaka Ryo, what are you doing at Kirigakure?”

“I came to send this guy home and talk to you.”

Terumi Mei glanced at Ao and found that he was not hurt. She then relaxed and said, “Go ahead. What do you want to talk to me about?”

“There are two things I want to say. First, during the Chunin exam, your Ninja and Jinchuriki in Kirigakure caused great damage to our territory in Konoha, and I hope that Kirigakure will take the initiative to bear part of the cost of the repairs.”

“Second, the ninja sword summon scroll is no longer in the hands of my sister-in-law, nor in Konoha. She used the ninja sword summon scroll as a condition to marry my clan brother back then, so you should not waste your time on my sister-in-law.”

After listening to Yamanaka Ryo’s words, Terumi Mei smiled and said with a little sarcasm, “Yamanaka Ryo, wouldn’t you be confused? Konoha has suffered heavy injuries now. Commoner and ninja have suffered numerous injuries. Why do you still threaten me?”

Yamanaka Ryo also laughed, “Who said that Konoha suffered a heavy blow? If you don’t believe me, ask this guy.”

“Mizukage-sama, Yamanaka Ryo was right. At first, I also felt that Konoha was finished under such a big explosion.”

“…However, after I was captured, I found that Tsunade had summoned many people on the way to the Yamanaka Clan. Beast Katsuyu is there. With Katsuyu’s protection and treatment, the loss of Konoha commoner and ninja should not be too great.” Ao was afraid that Terumi Mei would offend Yamanaka Ryo, and said quickly.

Terumi Mei believed in Ao’s words, but her expression was a little hesitant.

“Mizukage-sama, there is one more thing! Konoha has a new Mokuton Ninja, and the strength is mighty. It easily subdued all the ninjas we sent to Konoha this time, including Lord Yugao.”

After hearing this, Terumi Mei’s face changed greatly, completely unable to sit still.

Mokuton is the most terrifying Kekkei Genkai. In Terumī Mei’s view, were all mass destruction Ninjutsu.

With Mokuton Ninja, Konoha should have been destroyed?

However, according to what Ao said just now, Konoha’s loss was not as great as she thought.
