Bloodline Limit - Chapter 71
“Your greatest reliance should be the Eight Inner Gates, right? When the eight gates are fully opened, you will instantly erupt with power that surpasses that of the Hokage. You really can’t be underestimated.” Ryoha’s expression didn’t change. Lee didn’t even see Ryoha make any movements before disappearing into a pool of water. Then, he reappeared below the arena.
“The nature transformation of water!” Some of the Jonins looked at Ryoha in surprise. However, thinking that Ryoha could use Raikiri, applying the nature transformation of chakra should be easy for him.
It was just that they did not expect Ryoha to actually master two types of nature transformation. Moreover, Ryoha’s use of the water attribute was obviously better than his use of the lightning attribute.
“Guy, why don’t you just tell Rock Lee to give up? You should be able to see that Ryoha is not in a good mood right now, and Rock Lee is in the same group as Neji, isn’t it a bit…” Kakashi laughed as he walked over.
“No, Kakashi, you don’t seem to understand your student very well. Look at Ryoha, the way he looks at Rock Lee is different from looking at Neji. In fact, to Ryoha, no one is different.
“As long as you don’t hurt the people he cares about, he won’t bother with you. And Rock Lee didn’t do that. He won’t take his anger out on Rock Lee. Moreover, didn’t you see Ryoha looking at Rock Lee with a look of appreciation? He should know something about Rock Lee. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be like this.”
Guy said indifferently, ignoring Kakashi. Of course, he wanted to see his proud disciple’s breakout moments.
“Make your move, Lee.” Ryoha said calmly. His mind now had returned to its normal state, cunning as ever.
“Well, take this! Leaf Hurricane!.” Lee ran to Ryoha like a vigorous cheetah and then flew up on the way, kicking Ryoha with a whirlwind kick.
“It’s useless. It’s impossible to hurt Ryoha with such a move.” Sakura shook her head. During her time with Ryoha, she had fully understood how terrifying Ryoha was.
“This thick-browed brat is definitely going to lose.” Temari thought to himself.
Ryoha didn’t dodge or budge. He didn’t even block Lee’s kick. However, when Lee’s kick landed on Ryoha’s head, it was kicking thin air. Then, because he used too much force, Lee almost fell. Fortunately, his physical skills were superb and he was able to recover from such a difficult condition in time.
“How could this be?” Lee looked at his legs in disbelief. That feeling just now was as if he had kicked some water.
“That was.. some water.” Kakashi opened his Sharingan and looked at the water under Ryoha’s feet.
“So that’s how it is. This kid has reached a level that even many Jonins who are proficient in Water Release are unable to reach. The moment he was attacked, his body would transform into a pool of water due to his mastery of the water attribute. Normal physical attacks are very difficult to land.”
Orochimaru and the Third were really a master and disciple, thinking the same thing in their hearts.
“Lee, even if I don’t dodge or block this kind of attack, even you spend 30 minutes attacking me in place, you won’t do anything. If you only have this kind of strength, it is better to give up.”
The strongest among the three chakra nature changes Ryoha had mastered was not lightning or fire, but the water attribute. He is even comparable to Suigetsu from the Taka. as he could freely transform his body into the water.
“It seems that Rock Lee is in trouble. Although Ryoha’s defense is not that strong, it doesn’t matter if he can’t land any attacks on him.” Guy smiled while thinking about this.
“I understand. You can freely transform your body into the water. Although I can’t use Ninjutsu or Genjutsu, I can still attack you. Guy-sensei, please forgive me for letting you down earlier.” Rock Lee looked at Guy with a hopeful gaze.
“I approve it. Take him down, Lee! Let your youth burn!” Guy gave Lee his signature thumbs-up and smile.
“Thank you, Guy-sensei.” Rock Lee’s eyes immediately burned with flames and he immediately took off the weight. However, the others thought with disdain at this idea, thinking Lee’s actions would not affect anything. When the weights fell to the ground and exploded into two big pits, the spectators were covered in cold sweat.
“Guy, isn’t it a bit too much?” Kakashi said to Guy, as his forehead was covered in sweat.
“Come on!.” After Lee took off his weight, his movements became much more agile. In the eyes of others, his movements were like teleportation. In an instant, he arrived in front of Ryoha and threw a punch. Not only that, this punch was not ordinary at all, because the speed of this punch caused an indescribable friction sound to ring in the air, blowing some heatwave at the same time.
This time, Ryoha didn’t pull any water tricks. Instead, he used his fist to meet Lee’s attack. The two fists collided, and the floor around their feet immediately cracked, causing a deep pit to appear.
“Kakashi-sensei, why didn’t Ryoha turn into the water like before?” Sasuke asked. This kid might have suffered enough blows, he was actually very quiet.
“It’s very simple when Ryoha turned into water. Although he has all the characteristics of water, he also has a weakness. The amount of water he has turned into is too little. Therefore, the heat and friction from Lee’s high-speed punch would evaporate them.”
“If he land his punch, it was very likely that it would instantly evaporate the water around him. When Ryoha transformed into water, there was not much water in his body. Unless Ryoha was fighting on a river or a lake, he would never use that technique.”
Kakashi tried to explain it in a simpler way because he knew that Sasuke didn’t know about the nature transformation of chakra, let alone the shape transformation.
“His speed is indeed much faster.” Ryoha looked at Lee in surprise. He did not expect him to be so fast. If not for the fact that Gaara was Shukaku’s Jinchuuriki, the others, including Neji, would only be defeated by Rock Lee. Without opening the fourth gate, as long as he opened the first gate, he would be able to sweep through the entire audience.
It’s a pity that under Kishimoto’s arrangement, he could only be regarded as one of the side characters. However, it was different here. This was the reality. The survival of the fittest. There was no main character. If one really wanted to be the main character, then one should aim to be the strongest.
“Of course, I put everything into my Taijutsu. I will definitely not lose to anyone in Taijutsu. I am a hardworking genius. I believe that my efforts can surpass everyone. Today, I will let you experience my true strength.”
