Reborn in Konoha as the Anbu Torturer - Chapter 188
Aoba walked out of Eaton’s office. While talking to Eaton, he had already completed the purchase of the blank paper tags and the sale of the explosive tags.
Now, he had another 50 blank paper tags in his hand.
This time, he only bought 50, not 100, mainly because he was afraid of causing a big commotion.
Apart from that.
There was another reason.
That was, he intended to draw these 50 blank paper tags into mutually multiplying explosive tags.
A mutually multiplying explosive tag required more Chakra than an ordinary explosive tag.
If he made too many at once.
It was very easy to achieve a situation where the success rate was too low.
Because of this.
Aoba only bought 50 blank paper tags first and then made these blank paper tags into mutually multiplying explosive tags.
“It seems that I need to find an opportunity to expand the purchase channel!”
Aoba had now discovered the huge profit margin that could be produced after making the blank paper tags into the explosive tags.
This profit was enough to support him in making more explosive tags.
One had to know…
Konan’s 600 billion explosive tags had taken in all the money that she had earned in her lifetime.
And the money Kakuzu made from the bounties he hunted.
From a certain perspective.
It was not as profitable as the explosive tag she made!
Wanting to make an explosive tag like Aoba.
Not just anyone could do it.
They must have Sage Body like Aoba, which possesses terrifying chakra and tyrannical recovery ability.
It would take more than half a month for them just to make one explosive tag.
Sage Body and Tajū Kage Bunshin no Jutsu(Multiple Shadow Clone Technique) were simply cheats in the cheat and the most potent cheating device in the ninja world.
Such a cheat also gave Naruto great benefits, which could be used from the beginning to the end.
Aoba did not directly walk toward the Konohagakure Intelligence Division compartment. Instead, he walked out of Konohagakure Intelligence Division to meet his shadow clone.
At this moment.
One of his two shadow clones had already been canceled after his talk with Eaton.
With the cancellation of that shadow clone.
He had just informed Aoba to come over to meet the other shadow clone.
Aoba met the shadow clone walking over from the forest.
The shadow clone was still maintaining the appearance of Tomoki.
The shadow clone raised his hand and handed a bag to Aoba.
The shadow clone turned to smoke and disappeared.
Aoba lowered his head and looked at the bag.
After the shadow clone was canceled, he knew that the bag contained 50 blank papers tags and 75,000 Ryo.
Aoba turned around and walked directly into the forest.
He walked all the way to a very deep place.
Then, he immediately began to form seals with his hands.
“Tajū Kage Bunshin no Jutsu(Multiple Shadow Clone Technique)!”
Aoba immediately used Tajū Kage Bunshin no Jutsu(Multiple Shadow Clone Technique) and a thousand shadow clones appeared beside him.
During this period of time.
Aoba had never summoned so many shadow clones.
It had always been a small number of shadow clones.
They were either reading or drawing paper tags.
This time, he summoned 1,000 shadow clones. In an instant, a sea of people appeared in front of him.
Aoba nodded at these shadow clones, then turned around and left.
The moment he turned around.
Pieces of paper flew up behind him.
He disguised this place through Kami no Shisha no Jutsu(Paper Person of God Technique).
Aoba did not continue to draw explosive tags.
This thing could only be drawn once in a while.
Even though he wouldn’t feel tired from the shadow clone drawing it, the experience brought by the shadow clone would still shock his mind.
In addition, after reading the books that Minato had sent over, he hadn’t had the time to digest them properly. He felt that he needed to use these shadow clones to seriously think about the sealing techniques, and also study the method to make seal symbols.
After Aoba finished arranging these shadow clones, he immediately returned to Konohagakure Intelligence Division.
“I haven’t been to Ramen Ichiraku for a while.”
“I don’t know if Minato has sent a new book over.”
“I suddenly feel like I don’t have enough time!”
“I’m gradually getting busy…”
Aoba smiled slightly. His smile was very satisfied. He was a person who liked a quiet life. He also liked the feeling of being busy and fulfilling. This kind of feeling would make him feel at ease.
It was pretty good now.
Other than his own work and these studies, he did not consider anything else.
He studied little by little.
He was slowly developing.
He was accumulating his own strength.
Aoba would not use all his strength to draw explosive tags every day. He did not want to wait until a few years later to look back at the past and continue to make explosive tags.
However, he would not stop doing it.
Every once in a while, he would concentrate on making a batch of explosive tags and then store them away.
When he encountered danger in the future.
He had another trump card in his hand!
When Aoba returned to Konohagakure Intelligence Division again, it was already late. There were already people moving inside Konohagakure Intelligence Division.
Although everyone was wearing masks.
However, it still gave him a very depressing feeling.
Something was wrong!
The current atmosphere was a little strange!
Aoba faintly felt something was wrong, but he did not carefully feel it. These things were not important to him, and he was too lazy to care about other people’s affairs.
He went directly to the Konohagakure Intelligence Division compartment.
Time slowly passed.
His compartment was very quiet inside.
There was not a single person.
This was somewhat different from the past.
In the past, more or less at this time, there would always be a few waiting prisoners sent over.
But today, there was not a single one.
After a while.
Aoba could hear the whispers outside.
The people who spoke were all interrogator ninjas.
“What’s going on? Why is there no one today?”
“I don’t know! There is indeed no one! There is no one in prison!”
“Konoha Military Police Force didn’t work today?”
“It’s good! It’s rare to have a day of leisure!”
“I just think it’s strange!”
The voices of the interrogator ninjas were clearly transmitted into Aoba’s ears, which immediately attracted Aoba’s attention.
Could it be…
They won’t send prisoners to the compartment today?
This thought came to Aoba’s mind, and then he stopped thinking about it.
“Since there is no one…”
Aoba turned his head and immediately took out a book from his ninja bag.
The book was the book signed by Fugaku.
The back cover of the book was very interesting.
“Let’s use this book!”
Aoba picked up Konohagakure Intelligence Division’s pen. Taking advantage of the faint candlelight in the compartment, he sat on the chair and began to write word by word.
This was a story for Eaton to see.
A story combined with what he had read in the modern world in his previous life, coupled with the experience he had read in the Ninja World, and the local customs he had learned. He began to design a story about Bai Jie, a female teacher at the Ninja School.
Aoba wrote down the stories he had read in the past one by one in the book that Fugaku had given him.
A whole day passed.
It was time to get off work again.
Aoba had already written almost one-third of the entire story, and the essential part had already been written.
“I’ll write it next time.”
Aoba put away the notebook and walked out of Konohagakure Intelligence Division’s compartment. He did not ask the others curiously but returned to the dormitory to change into a casual outfit.
“Let’s go to Ramen Ichiraku to take a look.”
Aoba walked out of the Anbu dormitory and walked in the direction of Ramen Ichiraku.
He felt that there was something strange today.
He inferred from the days.
He vaguely guessed something.
He planned to go to Ramen Ichiraku to take a look. There was nothing that Ramen Ichiraku’s store could not know.
Aoba strolled along Konohagakure’s bustling streets.
There weren’t many people along the way.
The entire street was filled with a bleak feeling.
This feeling was very abnormal.
“Could it be that Kumogakure is here?”
Aoba had already silently made a judgment in his heart. Everything that was happening in the village now was too abnormal. This was not something that should appear at all.
Aoba quickened his pace.
He quickly turned a few intersections and entered Ramen Ichiraku.
Aoba lifted the curtain.
He directly entered Ramen Ichiraku Noodle House.
At this time.
It was time for dinner.
However, there were only two people eating inside the Noodle House.
Without thinking, Aoba walked directly toward one of the uncles and patted his head from behind.
“Hey, so you’re here too!”
Aoba greeted the uncle, a smile on his face as if he was an acquaintance. He gently patted his hand and immediately retracted it.
“Ding Dong! Memory Reading Succesful! Obtained: Chakra Increase!”
A clear electronic prompt sounded in Aoba’s mind.
“Do we know each other?”
The uncle who Aoba patted stared at Aoba in surprise. His mouth still had a noodle that had not been completely sucked in, and his face was full of confusion.
“Sorry, I got the wrong person!”
Aoba immediately bowed to the uncle, then quickly hid in a corner and looked at Teuchi.
At this moment.
Teuchi was also staring at Aoba. His slightly narrowed eyes seemed to be puzzled by Aoba’s behavior.
“Brother Teuchi, give me a bowl of ramen!”
Aoba waved at Teuchi. Then, he held his chin with both hands and closed his eyes, showing an exhausted expression.
“I am so tired today!”
“I am so tired that my eyes are blurred…”
“It is really…”
Aoba said to himself with his eyes closed. His words seemed to be for himself, but it was for Teuchi and the uncle he had patted.
Teuchi took a deep look at Aoba and did not say anything else. He directly began to cook ramen for Aoba.
After witnessing Aoba’s tired look, the uncle who Aoba had patted just now did not continue to pursue this matter and continued to eat the ramen in his bowl.
Aoba maintained his posture. He had already begun to read the memories of this uncle.
He didn’t need to spend too much time.
All he needed to know was what had recently happened.
In just a few seconds.
Aoba understood what had happened.
Kumogakure was here!
They had arrived at Konohagakure this morning!
They should be negotiating in the Hokage’s office now!
It was for this reason.
Konoha Military Police Force had already informed the village residents to return home to hide for the time being.
No one knew if there would be a sudden war!
After reading that uncle’s memories, Aoba immediately understood the general course of events.
Konohagakure has reached a critical time point!
Aoba silently stayed where he was. He did not say anything, but he knew that Third Hokage Hiruzen’s choice would affect the subsequent course of history.
Whether it was according to the method he suggested to Minato to unite with Iwagakure or to give Kumogakure benefits, he wondered if the talk with the Kumogakure people would lead to the early occurrence of the Third Ninja World War.
This will affect the subsequent development of things!
Aoba felt that.
If the Third Hokage chose to compromise.
That would not be a good idea at all.
If you seek peace through struggle, peace will go on; if you seek peace through compromise, peace will be gone!
If Konohagakure were willing to tolerate it, it would only make more people in the ninja world think that Konohagakure was easy to bully!
In Aoba’s opinion.
The third Ninja World War was already an inevitable trend, and it was simply unavoidable!
The Five Great Ninja Village forces were already seriously out of balance.
This war was inevitable.
It was necessary to have a war and then reshuffle the cards to obtain the subsequent peace.
According to the historical trajectory he knows.
After the Third Ninja World War.
The Ninja World would enter a very long period of peace.
There would be some friction between the various Great Ninja Villages, but it would not rise to the height of the war.
It was the so-called unbreakable.
It might not be a bad thing for this war that was bound to happen to end quickly.
Thinking of this.
Aoba’s heart began to shift a bit.
If war will definitely happen!
Then why not let it come earlier!
He only hoped so much and would not take the initiative to do anything that would add fuel to the fire.
There was no need to do it!
You must believe in the Third Hokage!
As long as the Third Hokage performed usually, the war would come as soon as possible!
“The ramen is ready!”
At this time, Teuchi held a bowl of hot ramen and placed it in front of Aoba.
“Thank you, Brother Teuchi!”
Aoba looked at the steaming hot ramen in front of him. He picked up his chopsticks and began to eat. In an instant, the rich soup made his mood improve.
“Right, Aoba, I almost forgot!”
Just as Teuchi was about to turn back to continue cooking ramen, he immediately stopped. With a serious face, he narrowed his eyes and stared at Aoba.
“Minato sent you another big box. It has been left here for several days. Remember to take it later.” Teuchi said slowly.
Aoba immediately nodded. After knowing that it was a book from Minato, a trace of warmth arose in his heart.
It had to be said.
Minato was really a good friend!
Half an hour later.
When Aoba finished eating the ramen, there was no one else in Ramen Ichiraku.
He picked up the box that Teuchi had taken out for him.
He added Chōkeijūgan no Jutsu(Ultralight-Weight Rock Technique) to the box, causing the weight of the box to disappear. Then, he used the Transformation Jutsu and Kami no Shisha no Jutsu(Paper Person of God Technique) to change the box into the appearance of an umbrella.
After all of this was done.
Aoba walked over to the forest behind Konoha’s Prison with the umbrella.
No one paid attention to him during the whole process.
Now a moment of crisis has come in Konohagakure.
Almost everyone in the village focused their attention on the direction of the Hokage Office, waiting for the result that might be brought back.
Aoba did not rush and maintained his cautious state.
When he walked toward the forest behind Konoha’s prison, he had already opened all his perceptions. A terrifying perception range instantly spread out with Aoba as the center.
Aoba’s perception range came from Sage Body.
The perception range was extremely wide!
All of a sudden.
In the forest in the south of Konoha’s Prison, Aoba sensed the aura of several people.
Aoba was stunned for a moment. He never thought that there would be an unexpected discovery at this time.
Aoba retracted his perception that was spreading out in all directions.
He concentrated all of his mental strength to control his perception and investigate the south.
“Twelve of them.”
Aoba felt the chakra of twelve people, and each person’s chakra was not a chakra of a Konohagakure ninja.
Based on this point, he could judge.
They were all intruders!
The corners of Aoba’s mouth curled up slightly. He used his perception to lock onto these intruders as he quickly walked towards the area where his shadow clone was.
Ten minutes later.
These intruders started to enter the forest, and their speed dropped. They seemed to be avoiding the possible attention and sneaking in as secretly as possible.
Aoba also arrived at the place where his shadow clone was located.
Aoba softly spat out this word, and instantly, the surroundings erupted with a series of explosions.
These shadow clones carried the information about sealing technique training and poured into Aoba’s head.
Aoba suddenly felt his head tremble.
After Aoba withdrew his shadow clone, his whole body returned to its normal state after a while, and the consumed chakra was recovering at an extremely fast speed.
It was at this time.
Aoba’s attention perceived the direction the twelve intruders were moving in.
They were shuttling through the forest not far from him.
According to the direction of their path.
Aoba accurately determined the final destination of these intruders.
The Hyuga clan place!
“They are actually staring at the Hyuga clan Byakugan!”
A hint of coldness flashed in Aoba’s eyes, whether after he came to the Ninja World or when he watched Naruto Anime in the past.
He had never had any good feelings for Kumogakure!
These people had repeatedly tried to steal Byakugan.
This kind of behavior…
Aoba couldn’t bear to see it!
“I don’t like to meddle in other people’s business, but I don’t like to see you, Kumogakure Ninjas, steal Byakugan under my nose!”
“If I didn’t see it, then forget it!”
“Now that I see it…”
“Let me send you guys on your way!”
As Aoba spoke, his figure flashed, and he quickly rushed in the direction of the twelve Kumogakure Ninjas.
This operation had nothing to do with the village, and it had nothing to do with the Hyuga clan.
He just couldn’t stand Kumogakure’s behavior!
No matter what was said.
There was bound to be a war between Kumogakure and Konohagakure.
Then let’s kill a few first to fill our stomachs!
Aoba was not willing to go to the battlefield. Even if there were a war between the two villages, he would not go to the front line. However, the other party had already sneaked under his nose. He could not pretend that he did not see it.
