Bloodline Limit - Chapter 81
“This kid looks very familiar. He has yellow hair and blue eyes. Hmm, could it be… the Fourth’s son?” Jiraiya looked at this silly guy. He was completely different from his father, but he also had this bright feeling. Jiraiya’s focus was swayed slightly after observing Naruto.
Ryoha also stopped because he knew that Jiraiya was also holding back. He knew that Jiraiya would face Itachi and Kisame later, like in the original work, only to let the two Akatsuki members retreat without a fight while saving Naruto from the two.
No matter what the reason was, if Jiraiya wasn’t strong enough to intimidate them, even if there were some big reasons, both of them could attack at the same time to take Naruto away. It was obvious that Itachi felt an immense threat coming from Jiraiya. He was hiding his true powers.
In addition, he had to preserve his body to help Sasuke later. He did not want to kill himself in the battle with Jiraiya, so Itachi could only retreat.
To fight Jiraiya, there were no other choices than to use the Susanoo. In other words, regardless of the results, even if they fought evenly, Itachi must use the Susanoo. From this, it could be seen how powerful Jiraiya was. To be precise, the trump card that Jiraiya had been hiding was terrifying.
Thus, when he saw that Jiraiya had canceled his genjutsu, Ryoha did the same. This was because Jiraiya had been holding back to test his strength. In terms of genjutsu, his opponent was at the Kage level, and his soul hadn’t been damaged, unlike Orochimaru. Ryoha’s strength was just a little bit better than Orochimaru, so he could only lose in a battle of genjutsu.
One had to know that Itachi had the strength to defeat Orochimaru by using a genjutsu on him. He could also use a genjutsu on Jiraiya, who was also one of the Legendary Sannin like Orochimaru, but he did not do so.
The only explanation was that Orochimaru’s soul was damaged, so his resistance to genjutsu was very weak, not to mention the level of genjutsu Itachi used is very high as he had the Mangekyo Sharingan with him.
This kind of genjutsu was a natural enemy for Orochimaru, whose soul was damaged at this time, but for Jiraiya, who had a clean soul and could use sage mode, which could be said to be very powerful, it was not effective against him.
“You don’t have to worry about me. I will just watch from the side.” Seeing that Jiraiya and Ryoha were looking at him, and because of the genjutsu that made him scared, Naruto hurriedly retreated thirty or forty meters and shook his head, indicating that they didn’t need to pay attention to him.
“Kid, tell me your name.” Although he already had a guess in his heart, he still had to ask and confirm it thoroughly.
“Did you ask me? I am the future Hokage, Uzumaki Naruto.” When Naruto heard Jiraiya, he took the initiative to respond and immediately rushed toward Jiraiya with an astonishing speed, striking a pose, and answering him with such confidence.
“Eh! This kid’s speed just now was a bit too exaggerated. Isn’t it just a name? Can he really live up to his words?” A drop of cold sweat appeared on the back of Jiraiya’s head. He looked at Naruto and thought.
Uzumaki Naruto… seems like my hunch was right. He is the son of the Fourth Hokage, but he seems to be a bit too weak. Forget it. We’ll talk about Naruto later. Let’s first test the strength of this kid in front of us. I heard that Orochimaru had approached Uchiha Sasuke, so Ryoha should have fought with Orochimaru in that group.”
“With Orochimaru’s personality, he would never fail to put a curse on Ryoha. According to the Third Hokage, the damage that occurred in the forest must be caused by at least an A-rank NInjutsu.”
“Moreover, it has to be used many times to create such damage. From the Genins of Konoha, they knew that it was Ryoha and Orochimaru who fought. To make Orochimaru fail in putting his curses, he should be really strong.
Jiraiya nodded to Naruto, indicating him to go to the side. In order to get Jiraiya to train him, the latter actually obediently went to the side. Obviously, Naruto knew that Jiraiya was different, so he didn’t look down on him at first like the original. It wasn’t until Jiraiya showed his hands that Naruto began to entangle him.”
“Has it started?” Ryoha’s eyes flashed with a fighting spirit. He quietly opened his Sharingan, and the Nine-tails chakra crazily flowed into them. For the first time, he used the Nine-tails chakra with his Sharingan. Ryoha felt his Sharingan was working as usual, even with the Nine-tails chakra poured into them.
The Sharingan had a kind of warm feeling as if it were soaked in warm water, which was very comfortable. At the same time, although Ryoha couldn’t see it, he was sure that the appearance of the Sharingan would definitely change when he used the Nine-tails chakra for the first time.
However, all of this was not important. In any case, Ryoha was sure that his Sharingan would become stronger after using the Nine-tails chakra. After this battle, he would see what it would become.
“Strange, what’s happening? This feeling is very nasty.” After Ryoha opened his Sharingan, although he couldn’t see the changes in his eyes due to the obstruction of the contact lens, the appearance of the Nine-Tailed Chakra, the activation of the Sharingan, and the power of the Sharingan and Nine-Tailed Chakra were all disturbing like some unknown existences.
However, the Nine-Tailed Chakra had an aura that could destroy everything. Although Ryoha’s Nine-Tails chakra had just been extracted, after swallowing all of Ryoha’s previous chakra, it had already grown a certain amount. However, it was not as obvious as the Nine-Tails Chakra the Kyubi possessed.
However, even if Jiraiya still vaguely sensed it, he felt there was a vague sense of familiarity, but he couldn’t remember what this feeling was because of the combination of the Sharingan, making the Nine-Tailed Chakra a little different from that of the Nine-Tailed Fox. In addition, the aura was not so obvious, and he didn’t pay it any mind for a while.
“Anytime.” Jiraiya was trying to test Ryoha’s strength, and since he was a senior and his opponent was a rookie of Konoha, at least for now, it was not good for him to make the first move.
Now, he was already a bit of a bully. If he made the first move, he would feel bad after all. Since both sides were not in a life-and-death situation, there was no need to be so ruthless and serious.
“Then come on.” Ryoha took out his weapon, quickly rushing to the left side of Jiraiya. The weapon in his hand flashed towards Jiraiya as if he was seriously going to kill him.
