Reborn in Konoha as the Anbu Torturer - Chapter 171
The Hokage position would become a private property passed down from generation to generation of the Sarutobi lineage.
This was like from a retired system to an heir system.
This ambition has been vividly displayed since the Third Hokage was in power.
If it were before he crossed over.
Aoba might not have such a deep understanding.
When he came to the Ninja World and lived in Konohagakure Intelligence Division, he got a lot of memories about this world, and he became more and more clear.
From a certain point of view.
The position of Hokage.
It was more like Konohagakure’s “throne”, which was not something anyone could sit on.
Those ninjas who held the illusion of becoming Hokage.
In the end, it was just a fantasy!
Aoba walked forward step by step. When he suddenly thought of this topic, he vaguely understood why Jiraya did not want to become a Hokage.
Jiraya had seen through his teacher’s thoughts.
He doesn’t want to get involved in that power struggle.
If it weren’t for the Third Ninja World War was too tragic.
Maybe there was no chance for Minato to become Hokage at all.
The Third Hokage could rely on his uncompromising attitude to personally pass the Hokage position to Asuma and then from Asuma to Konohamaru.
In the end.
Minato becoming Hokage was just an accident.
At that time, the reason why the Third Hokage strongly recommended Minato should also be because Minato did not have any background. He was not from a big clan, so it was easier to control.
If Orochimaru became the Fourth Hokage, then Danzo would become the advisor behind Orochimaru, and Konoha would definitely undergo a major reshuffle and enter a new era.
In that new era.
It would be tough for Hiruzen to restore the Sarutobi Clan’s rule over Konohagakure.
Hiruzen had personally witnessed how the remnants of the old era worked hard to overthrow him.
In the end, there was no way to overthrow his regime.
If he gave the Hokage position to Orochimaru.
Then his supporters and the Sarutobi Clan might be labeled as the remnants of the old era after he died.
This was something that the Third Hokage did not want to see!
Aoba walked towards the Ninja School step by step. After saying those extremely hurtful words to Obito, he did not bother him anymore.
But in Obito’s heart.
He had already regarded Aoba as one of those who looked down on him.
When Obito caught up with Aoba, he thought that Aoba was someone who could understand him.
When he heard Aoba talk about Kakashi, he was speechless.
He knew he was wrong.
Aoba was the same as most people in the village.
He doesn’t understand his great ambition at all!
Aoba walked into the Ninja School. He had read the memories of the ninja school in the memory of his predecessor, but those memories were very vague, and it was a long time ago.
Now he walked into the courtyard of the Ninja School.
He just felt that there was a sense of deja vu inside.
He seemed to have been here before.
It also seemed that he had never been here.
This feeling was very strange.
It was more like…
He was dreaming!
After Aoba walked into the Ninja School, he looked into the courtyard. Then, his gaze turned and landed on a tree in the corner.
The tree’s trunk was very wide, and it was unknown how many years it had been through.
On the extremely sturdy branches.
There were two thick hemp ropes tied around it, and below it was a board making it into a swing.
“Isn’t this the little swing that Naruto swung at that time!”
When Aoba saw this scene, he couldn’t help but feel a little emotional. The swing scene could be said to be his first impression of Naruto Anime.
All the plot started from this swing.
Aoba walked towards the swing.
He then stood by the tree.
His right palm gently touched the tree’s bark as if he was feeling the traces of time that this tree had experienced.
“Who are you looking for?”
At this time, a voice sounded and entered Aoba’s ears. Then a Ninja walked out of the Ninja School. He looked around twenty-four to twenty-five years old and gave off a calm feeling.
“I am looking for Namikaze Minato.” After being asked, Aoba did not panic at all. He did not recognize the person in front of him, but he could guess that this person was the Ninja School teacher, but not the teacher when he was in the Ninja School.
“Wait a moment.” The Ninja nodded, turned around, and walked inside.
Just as the Ninja turned around and went back.
Obito, who had just sneaked out, crept into the courtyard of the Ninja School and secretly followed behind the Ninja.
This scene completely fell into Aoba’s eyes. He suddenly felt a little funny.
At such a young age.
He had just entered the Ninja School.
He was not as strong as Kakashi.
Not only did he skip classes, but he also has puppy love.
Under Aoba’s gaze.
Obito silently followed behind the ninja, preparing to sneak back to his classroom.
When the ninja had just entered the building, he waved to a figure inside.
“Minato, someone is looking for you!” The ninja said.
Minato responded and then walked out of the building.
Just as Minato reached the building entrance.
He happened to run into Obito, who was preparing to sneak in.
Both of them stopped in place.
Minato looked down at Obito.
Obito raised his head to look at Minato.
Their gazes met through the goggles.
“I remember you. You are the child that Mikoto brought over that day. It’s class time now. Why did you walk over from outside?” Minato stared at Obito and asked.
“It’s none of your business.” Obito knew that Minato was not the school teacher, so he immediately ran over to Minato, wanting to get past him and enter the school building.
“Did you skip class?” Minato grabbed the collar behind Obito’s neck and pulled him back like a chicken. His expression was serious, but he didn’t look earnest.
“None of your business!” Obito said grumpily. He felt that the person in front of him was too nosy.
“Hahaha, you are a little interesting. Don’t skip classes in the future. Go back to class.” Minato looked at Obito. Not only did he not get angry, he even smiled. His smile was like a spring breeze, bringing great warmth to people.
After finished speaking.
Minato released his grip on Obito.
Obito looked at Minato in a daze, and without a word, he quickly ran into the school building.
Minato looked at Obito’s back and nodded silently.
Minato looked in the swing direction in the courtyard, and his eyes fell on Aoba.
“Aoba, how did you find this place?”
