On another note, (and no, I'm not asking for links as that's clearly against policy) is there a different translation out there? It seems like there's one that gets posted to every site. And it's awful. The past few chapters have been terribly awkward, and now we get the great line from Itachi of: "You've learnt a lot... Dr. Snakes."
Actually, the whole exchange is awful.
Seriously, What the fuck. It sounds more like Naruto Abridged.
Edit: Followed by Snakes moving around making "Snaking" noises.
And then Killer Bee brandishes his swords dramatically and goes "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! I HAVE HAD IT WITH THESE MOTHERFUCKING SNAKES ON THIS MOTHERFUCKING PLANE!"
Sounds like Naruto abridged indeed.
So far, I have rarely found time travel fics, and any fics with the Uzumaki clan regularly stink of wank. Are there any fics at all that try to play up the Canon Uzumaki clan?
@Noxturne - making the Uzumaki rather powerful can't be helped; the Uzumaki clan were, after all, the source of much of the top-rank fuinjutsu Konoha has (aside from the Fourth, but he did get his inspiration from the Uzumaki, too).
On the bright side Snakedragon-Sage Kabutomaru plays nicely with the Nartuo/MTG fic I'm almost surely never going to actually write.
MTG? How does that even works?
Thematically? Quite easily. Natural Chakra is mana. And then I have a bunch of mechanics made up for how it'll work, and a bunch of plot points. If I were to write it, it'd be one of the "People vote on which option to follow" type fics.
So, a CYOA?
Not quite. Most of the fic's planned out already, the CYOA aspects only apply as far as spell selection, side quests, and 'cultivating' (for lack of a better term) other characters. Think more Mass Effect and less "This can go wherever the readers vote".
Uzumaki tend toward the LOLHAX side of the spectrum. I mean, jinchuuriki, lifespans longer than most hidden villages, and crazy-ass sealing methods are one thing, but the Rinnegan? Gimme a break. It's like the entire clan mainlines uber and hax.
Honestly, I kind of think it's a response to the earlier Super Uchiha.
Isn't the Rinnegan an anomaly by itself? It is different from the one Edo Madara have, at least in functionality.
He still keeps all his sharingan powers while using the rinnegan, so there must be something else then.
Tobidara implied earlier that the Rinnen'gan is something that can be given, and that the Rinnen'gan has a few "One time use" abilities too. It seems like it's possible Rinnen'gan is similar to Izanagi, in that you get it once and can either use it to upgrade your own eyes (EdoMadara) or someone else (Tobidara used it on Nagato).
It's possible you get a Rinnen'gan if you use a specific form of Izanagi or something.
Also gotta keep in mind that Uzumaki are the 'parent' clan, so to speak, of both the Uchiha and the Senju, iirc.
Are they? I thought the Uzumaki were an offshoot of the Senju.
Pretty sure the original Rikudo Sennin was stated, or possibly implied, to be Uzumaki. Which in turn, assuming the 'brothers' legend is true, makes the Uzumaki the parent clan of both.
It was explicitly stated the Uzumaki clan had blood relations with the Senju, which in turn makes them sort of cousins of the Uchiha, but nothing on who is parent of who.
At best, it appears the Senju is the parent of Uzumaki if you go by Tobi's rants.
I believe Kushina said that the Senju and Uzumaki shared a "common ancestor".
Anyone reading Five Kingdoms For The Dead by Evil is a Relative Term?Because it just updated.
Excellent fic,with Sakura as a very good shinobi with multiple personality disorder and a skillset optimized for assassination.
Give it a try,if you haven't already.
There is a "Better Translation" Thread on the Naruto forum but it's only part of the chapter.
There was a complete translation posted in one of the other threads but I can't find it now that there are so many threads there.
Sasuke was supposed to be called an expert on snakes though. Not Dr Snakes (what were they thinking?)
The whole conversation made a lot more sense when it wasn't translated by incompetents.
Sigh. Why did Manga Stream have to be taken down? They had such high quality translations.
I'm guessing he was being called 'Snake Sensei' in Japanese, which sounds a LOT less retarded than 'Dr Snakes'.
No, in this case he would call him Hebi Hakase~博士, something like Dr. Snakes.
Back in the day the term Hakase was used when someone had way too much knowledge about a certain topic, before being replaced by otaku.
Yeah, it's pretty good. While she is by no means a powerhouse and will likely lose in straight fights, Sakura is a very dangerous ninja, who will engineer the conditions for her to win.
One of the other "better" translations called him professor snakes or something like that.
Separate names with a comma.
