Reborn in Konoha as the Anbu Torturer - Chapter 172
When Minato saw Aoba, he immediately smiled and walked toward him.
Aoba also saw Minato and witnessed the dramatic scene between Minato and Obito.
If there were no accidents.
It was precisely because of this matter.
Minato must have chosen Obito in his team!
“Minato, I have something to ask of you,” Aoba said in a deep voice. His eyes had always been fixed on Minato’s eyes. It had to be said that those blue eyes bring an indescribable power.
“What is it?” Minato asked curiously.
“I want to learn some sealing techniques, but I don’t know who knows them, and I don’t know where there are books that can be read. Do you know anything about them?” Aoba didn’t directly talk about Kushina. He thought of Kushina when he thought of the sealing technique, but he couldn’t really go to Kushina and touch her head in front of Minato.
“Sealing technique?” Minato stared at Aoba in surprise and asked in confusion, “Why do you suddenly want to learn sealing technique?”
“You also know that my body has become much better after Tsunade-sensei’s treatment. Right now, all I have mastered are the secret arts of the Yamanaka clan. I want to learn some sealing techniques to increase my strength!” Aoba said seriously. When he came to find Minato, he had already thought of what kind of reasons and excuses to use.
“Aoba, are you planning to go to the battlefield?” The smile on Minato’s face suddenly disappeared, and his expression became serious.
“No…” Aoba shook his head repeatedly. He did not want to bring such a misunderstanding to Minato. He was the one who wanted to stay in Konohagakure Intelligence Division. The battlefield had nothing to do with him at all.
Minato pursed his lips and carefully sized up Aoba’s expression. His eyes flickered with suspicion as he wanted to use Aoba’s expression to determine if Aoba really thought this way.
“How should I put it…”
“I do know a bit about sealing techniques.”
“And I can also find a channel to provide you with the opportunity to learn.”
“Sealing techniques are not that easy to learn. You need to have talent in this aspect.”
“Moreover, the stronger the sealing technique, the greater the price you have to pay.”
“I don’t know if you can really learn sealing techniques or if it is a good thing or a bad thing for you to learn sealing techniques.”
“You learn ninjutsu from me!”
“I will teach you some simple and practical ninjutsu. Those are more useful than sealing techniques at critical times.”
Minato immediately gave Aoba some suggestions that he felt were very pertinent.
He still had some understanding of sealing techniques. Kushina was a member of the Uzumaki Clan, and he had read the Uzumaki Clan record that Kushina had brought over.
The sealing technique power was very powerful!
But the price that needed to be paid was also very high!
For example, the Shiki Fūjin(Dead Demon Consuming Seal).
It could directly seal other people’s souls, but it would also cost one’s life and be sealed with the target souls.
“I still want to learn some sealing techniques. The main thing is to understand it even if I may not be able to learn it, so I am interested in these things; do you have any ideas?” Aoba insisted. He didn’t feel much about ordinary ninjutsu anymore.
“Alright.” Minato looked deeply at Aoba, then nodded and said, “I’ll get you a few books to take a look at first. If you can’t learn them or feel that the price is too high, then don’t learn them so easily, understand?”
“Understood! Understood! Also, please get me a few more books about sealing techniques! The more, the better! I want to read them all!” Aoba immediately said.
“Sigh… alright!” Minato originally wanted to tell Aoba that he couldn’t bite off more than he could chew, but when he saw Aoba’s eyes that were filled with curiosity, he suddenly understood a truth.
That was, Aoba had always been in poor health.
He hasn’t practiced much, so he doesn’t know the specific situation of his own body.
So Aoba wanted books to read.
Also, Aoba might not even be able to learn some of his ninjutsu.
In fact, it didn’t matter!
As a person about to become an instructor, Minato gradually understood a principle, which was not to hit people’s enthusiasm easily.
“I’ll go home and get it for you later.”
Minato thought and added, “I will send these books to Ramen Ichiraku tonight and give them to Brother Teuchi for safekeeping. You can ask him for them directly.”
Aoba smiled. He knew that he could find Minato to solve this kind of problem, and his heart suddenly felt more comfortable.
During this period of time, if he had nothing to do, he would use his shadow clone to read those books.
He would absorb all of this theoretical knowledge.
Aoba felt that he was now like a sponge, able to contain a large amount of nutrients and needed to continuously absorb them.
Aoba suddenly realized what Minato had just said. He didn’t know if he was overthinking it, but he felt that it was better to ask.
“You just asked me if I were going to the battlefield?”
“Could it be…”
“Has something happened recently?”
Aoba asked doubtfully. During this period of time in the Konohagakure Intelligence Division, all the memories he had read were the memories of ordinary people, and most of them were some small-time thieves or something.
Some of them were familiar faces.
The thieves that he had interrogated before had already been released, but they had committed another crime and were caught then sent over.
For these kinds of thieves.
Aoba very carefully conducted clinical medicine experiments on them.
After ensuring that they had experienced this kind of experience, they no longer wanted to come to Konohagakure Intelligence Division.
Who knows when it starts.
Konohagakure’s crime rate has been reduced because of this terrifying Konohagakure Intelligence Division interrogator.
“Something did happen.”
Minato nodded. He had nothing to hide, especially since the other party was Aoba, who he had a good relationship with.
“According to the time, Kumogakure’s Ninja Group will be coming in about a week,” Minato said in a deep voice.
“Kumogakure is coming here again?” Aoba’s eyebrows jumped. He felt that this Kumogakure was like a ghost that refused to leave.
“This time, it is for the last incident. However, the people who will be coming here are not good. The group leader is Hari, who invaded Konohagakure last time and escaped. They have a high probability of making trouble for our village.” Minato’s face became serious. He had a strong sense of belonging to Konohagakure. Whether it was the matter of Kumogakure’s ninja invasion or the other party’s strong performance in the follow-up negotiations, they all made him feel extremely dissatisfied.
“Minato, you mean…” Aoba stared at Minato and asked.
“For this matter, I think Kumogakure will demand compensation that Konohagakure can not accept. If we can’t reach an agreement, the two sides may have to fight.” Minato said in a deep voice. From his tone, he could feel the hate for war and also the expectation for war. This was a very complicated emotion.
Aoba could understand Minato’s emotions.
This might be the emotion that many Konohagakure Ninjas would have at the moment.
If they maintained peace, it would mean that they would compromise, and this peace would make people feel very aggrieved.
But if they did not compromise, both sides might start a war. Although they could vent their dissatisfaction, it would definitely cause countless casualties.
“Minato, don’t worry. Believe in the Hokage-sama, if we can solve the problem with compensation; a war might not happen, right?” Aoba lightly comforted.
