Chapter 5 Carelessnes is Your Worst Enemy & Chapter 6 Not Sasuke-kun!  
Fwee, Saturday!



Summary

Kakashi is left standing alone in a field remarking that hiding yourself well is a basic ninja trait. Apparently, Naruto missed the memo as he challenges Kakashi head on, stopping just short of an attack when Kakashi appears to be drawing a weapon. In fact, he’s pulling out Icha Icha Paradise, saying it won’t make a difference when fighting against the three genin. This of course, insults Naruto, who begins attempting to beat Kakashi to a pulp. He fails and Sasuke and Sakura watch in horror as Kakashi unleashes a, “super powerful ass poke” he calls 1,000 Years of Pain.

From the river he landed in, Naruto continues his onslaught with shiruken and flashes back to being acknowledged by Iruka, and vows to make Kakashi do the same, spurring him to attack with Kage Bunshin. Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi all seem pretty impressed by this, Kakashi being taken by surprise as the clones grab him. Sasuke and Sakura (who still haven’t done a damn thing this entire chapter) secretly praise Naruto’s quick thinking as the real Naruto goes in for the kill—only to punch one of his clones.

Things The Characters Learn

-Stealth isn’t Naruto’s specialty.

-Kakashi reads dirty books.

-Kakashi plays kancho, apparently.

-Dieting before a ninja mission is a bad idea (poor, poor Sakura).

-Sasuke and Sakura learn Naruto can use Kage Bunshin and thinks pretty quick in a fix.

Things The Reader Learns

-Kakashi is a porn-reading, ass-poking freak.

-We’re introduced to the term Taijutsu and it’s meaning.

-Kage Bunshin are not illusionary clones, but real, and apparently pretty high level at that. Seems they take a lot of ability to maintain, considering Kakashi says Naruto’s can only last a minute.

-We’re introduced vaguely to the concept of handseals.

Foreshadowing

-Naruto uses a similar Kage Bunshin trick on Kakashi, that he’ll use on Zabuza later.

Discussion

-Before we knew about Sharingan, before we learned Kakashi never takes off his mask, why did you think he was covered up like that?

-The bell test. Was Sandaime the only teacher to pass this test down to his students, or do all prospective genin have to endure it?

Mmm, flashbacky goodness.





Summary

Naruto reels from Kakashi’s quick escape, his clones getting in a fight as he deduces Kakashi must’ve used a henge to disappear. However, when he releases the jutsu, it’s revealed that only Naruto and his clones are there. Sasuke correctly identifies and introduces the reader to Kawarimi no jutsu, noting that Kakashi traded places with one of Naruto’s clones and is hiding elsewhere. Meanwhile, Naruto has spotted a bell that’s been dropped and gets caught in a trap Kakashi set up and Sasuke notes the Jounin hasn’t left an opening yet.

As Kakashi admonishes Naruto, Sasuke attacks with a barrage of projectile weapons, which seemingly do some major damage. Until Kakashi turns into a log, that is. Kakashi deliberately left an opening to find out Sasuke’s position and saved himself some trouble using Kawarimi. Elsewhere, Sakura is beginning to search for Sasuke, worrying that something might have happened to him, and finds Kakashi. Just as she remarks relief that he didn’t notice her, Kakashi pops up behind her.

Naruto cuts himself from the trap, only to be caught in another, as Kakashi pulls a genjutsu on Sakura. Sakura comes upon an illusion of Sasuke as a rather grotesque pin-cushion and promptly passes out. Kakashi remarks that he may have gone too far. Sasuke hears Sakura scream and seems to worry over her a teensy-weensy bit, but is quickly distracted by Kakashi, who implies Sakura fell for his genjutsu. Sasuke laughs a little and remarks in his thoughts that Sakura would fall for something like that, then tells Kakashi he’s not like the others. Kakashi tells him to save it until after Sasuke’s gotten a bell.

Things The Characters Learn

-Everything learned in this chapter can be boiled down to one lesson: Kakashi is a sadist. Do not trust him.

Things The Reader Learns

-We learn about the replacement technique, Kawarimi no jutsu.

-Kage Bunshin transfer damage they take to their source.

-Sasuke thinks in pictures of tiny, confused ninja.

-Naruto falls for traps easily.

-Kakashi is a *sadist*.

-We’re introduced to genjutsu.

Foreshadowing

-Naruto is standing on a frog on the cover page, both of them doing the Tiger handseal. I believe this type of thing’s been pointed out enough that you all know what it means.

-Kakashi uses the “underneath the underneath” line for the very first time, as well as teaching Naruto to think before he uses a jutsu. These are lessons Naruto will pass on to others.

-This is the first time Sakura sees anyone injured and it’s Sasuke. She freaks out. This will happen again with Zabuza.

Discussion

-Silly question, but, the only techniques in Naruto’s arsenal he hasn’t used is Sexy/Harem jutsu. Do you think either of these would work on Kakashi at all?

-At this point we haven’t seen Sasuke fight. What did you think his fighting style would be like?

Awesome sum-up.

Picturing that I just had to laugh for a minute. But I imagine it would either not affect Kakashi at all, as he's massively desensitized through all his reading, or he would react in a similar was to Iruka and, later, Jairaya.

And that picture of Sasuke *shudders* the right hand (his left) and that backwards twisted foot always get me. Gah.

^^ Thanks.

I've always sort of wondered what Kakashi's reaction would be to Sexy jutsu, because it's a real toss up. He's a really controlled guy, and yet, he reads the dirty books so you have to wonder. Maybe he'd nose-bleed a bit and pretend nothing was wrong?

Holy cow! I never even noticed Sasuke's left arm is missing in that picture! *shudders* Damn, Kakashi, are you trying to mentally scar your students? *joins the shuddering*

My first thought about that picture was "what has he seen, to make it so he can realistically depict something that gruesome?"

A nosebleed by Kakashi would be concealed behind his mask, I'm guessing. Though an Iruka sized one might force it away. Then we'd get to see his face ^_^

"what has he seen, to make it so he can realistically depict something that gruesome?"

Eesh. That question goes for a lot of Konhona's best. I can imagine the horrific after-effects leave a lasting impression.

That's just the thing. Kakashi nosebleeds (and his face) are things we will never see all because of that mask. Curses...

Dang, Naruto should have tried that when they were trying to get Kakashi to show his face during the special chapter.

It does make you wonder why Naruto's never used Sexy no Jutsu against Kakashi. Maybe he's growing up a little bit? But probably not.

Show of hands. Anyone else think that Kakashi's just a few knocks to the head short of going mad and joining Itachi in the Akatsuki?

Apparently, Naruto missed the memo

*snicker* So cute, but so stupid.

I wonder about the bell test. It does seem like a good general test for prospective genin, but then again, each teacher passes on different values to their students. The teamwork aspect emphasized in the bell test is something that Kakashi feels strongly about. Gai, on the other hand, was probably pushing that 'springtime of youth' thing from the very beginning, and I can't really see Kurenai or Asuma as sadistic enough to pull it off. It's possible that all the Jounin sensei use some variation of 'you have to get the bells from me by noon', but I doubt they all follow Kakashi's test exactly.

*raises hand* Kakashi's a few shiruken shy of a full set.

Poor Naruto. At least he learns better...eventually.

Fabulous point. I hadn't thought about the fact that beyond the Academy, the schooling to become a ninja probably isn't very formal and the teachers have their own way of going about things.
