Naruto: This Ninja is Obviously Not Strong But Really Hard To Kill - Chapter 100
【Hardening】, 【Poor Quality Self Healing Body】, and 【Hakuda】…
Choosing to upgrade one of these three abilities was undoubtedly the most cost-effective, and the effect could be immediate.
Among them, 【Hakuda】 mainly increased his attack power, 【Poor Quality Self Healing Body】 increased his recovery ability, and 【Hardening】 also increased his defense, survival ability, and part of his attack power.
With such a comparison, Aoba immediately made a decision in his heart!
Living was the foundation of everything!
Without a person, there was nothing!
Therefore, he immediately used two skills cards in succession to 【Hardening】 with a determined gaze!
Instantly, the level behind 【Hardening】 became an exciting level 7!
If the level 5 【Hardening】 could still be broken by the full-strength attack of Guy in a serious state, then after reaching level 7, if Guy wanted to break his defense, he could only open the Eight Inner Hidden Armor!
After all, the current Guy was only a Gennin, far from reaching the peak of the original work.
If he used all his strength to open level 7 【Hardening】, and then released the upgraded 【Busoshoku Haki】.
Aoba suddenly felt a sense of security!
‘I may not be strong, but I can annoy you to death!’
Aoba estimated that below Jonin, he should not be able to threaten his life unless he was exhausted or attacked.
As for what level of ninjutsu he could resist, he hadn’t personally tested it, so it was hard to say now.
But for C-grade ninjutsu like Grand Fireball, he could finally put on an act and say a few words, so his power was only so-so…
Of course, although he was excited, he had not lost his mind.
After all, his current weakness was also very obvious. First of all, his speed was not enough, and he could only rely on the explosive power of his body to approach his opponent.
However, he could make up for it by learning ninjutsu such as the instant movement technique, or he was looking forward to the dog system’s conscience.
Secondly, he did not have the ability to resist illusions.
There was no good way. If he could solve it, he could solve it. If he could not, he could only resist it. Perhaps in the future mission rewards, he could get the ability to resist illusions or props.
However, there was no need to worry too much at the moment. After all, there were not many ninjas who were proficient in illusions.
Moreover, he was not even a Genin now. Even if his face was black, he would not be so unlucky to meet Itachi.
So it was not particularly urgent.
Finally, it was his physical strength problem. So many abilities relied on his physical strength as the foundation to play their role.
Although he had squeezed himself as much as possible, time was a big problem. He needed enough time to grow.
Therefore, there was no other way.
Aoba immediately let go of his worries and returned to normal.
As for the remaining three beginner skill cards in his hands, he hesitated for a moment among 【Busoshoku Haki】 and 【Halo Thorns】, which were both LV0, and then chose to strengthen the latter.
Although increasing 【Busoshoku Haki】’s strength increased more, the former could increase his level through hard training, but the latter never found a way to upgrade.
Therefore, it was undoubtedly more cost-effective to use these three beginner skill cards on 【Halo Thorns】.
【Busoshoku Haki】 could slowly cultivate. Anyway, there was still half a year before he graduated.
After upgrading, 【Halo Thorns】’s level became Level 3. The effect was 19 of the enemy’s physical attack in close combat, causing backlash.
In other words, if Guy punched him with all his strength now, there would be close to a fifth of the force, and the additional backlash would be on Guy’s fist, causing damage.
Meanwhile, Aoba himself would still be able to withstand Guy’s full-strength attack.
It would not reduce the damage.
If it were for a weapon, then the rebound force would be the first to be used on the weapon. Then, through the conductivity of the weapon, it would be reflected to the area where the enemy was holding the weapon.
Although the anti-damage effect would be greatly weakened, if the weapon was not able to withstand it, it would be very easy to be directly damaged.
From the looks of it, 【Halo Thorns】 was actually a very powerful ability. However, the premise was that you could withstand the enemy’s attack head-on. Otherwise, if someone punched you, you would die, and you wouldn’t be able to retaliate!
In addition, the initial effect of LV0 was only 10 of the damage, so Aoba had not been in a hurry to upgrade this ability, treating it as chicken ribs.
However, it was different now. With the LV7 【Hardening】 and 【Busoshoku Haki】 who had not yet upgraded as trump cards, 【Halo Thorns】’s effect could be displayed to his heart’s content.
When he thought about how in the future, in the battle, the enemy would punch and kick him, and in the end, he would vomit blood and fall to the ground
Aoba almost laughed out loud!
‘A total of 9 points of counter damage increased. In other words, for every level up, the counter damage increased by 3. It doesn’t seem much, but it shouldn’t be underestimated after accumulating it!’
After checking the abilities and levels he currently possessed, Aoba couldn’t help but turn off his’ tombstone ‘interface in satisfaction.
‘What good weather. I wonder if Itachi will be dumbfounded when he sees that I haven’t come to school!!’
As he laughed happily, he couldn’t help but imagine the scene of Itachi facing the girls by himself with a headache.
It was really funny just thinking about it…
Aoba was having fun while he was bored. Suddenly, there was a knock on the door. Then, the door was opened. A guy who shouldn’t have appeared here at this time… appeared.
“Huh? How did you know I was here?”
Aoba looked at Itachi, who was standing at the door with two large bentos in his hands in surprise.
“Guy told me to eat first. You can solve the ‘trouble of’ you created yourself.”
As he spoke, Itachi handed the bentos in his hand to him.
Obviously, the trouble that Itachi was referring to was this
“You skipped school to ask Guy about my whereabouts just to give me this?” Aoba was stunned.
“You said that I can’t waste food. I can’t eat so much by myself. If I take it back like this, you won’t be able to eat my Horse food in the future.” Itachi said with a straight face.
Then, he opened his lunchbox. He had not eaten yet.
After hearing Itachi’s explanation, Aoba felt that it was reasonable. He immediately heaved a sigh of relief, took the lunchbox, and joked, “You scared me to death. I thought you were gay.”
“What is gay?” Itachi asked, puzzled.
“Well, gay is a man who doesn’t like women but likes the same-sex… You, shouldn’t be?”
Itachi was stunned for a moment, then shook his head and said, “I am not gay, but I also don’t like those girls. They talk all day, can’t hide, can’t avoid, and seriously delayed my usual practice time.”
