Thanks for the translation help my friend steviekins96





Man: Damn, I accidentally fell down here.. What is this place? It’s full of fog. I can’t see anything around here…


Unknown: Come this way…

Man: Who’s that over there!? Help me!


Man: Eh!? That’s me! What the hell is this!!?


Unknown: Yes, I am you. I know everything about you. I know your pain. I’m the only one who understands how you feel. If you come here by my side, you won’t have to suffer anymore.

Man: What the hell are you talking about!?


Unknown: Her death was really your fault. She must have survived a lot, right? No matter what anyone says, the truth is it really is your fault.


Man: I..I… yes, it’s really my fault.

Unknown: You’re stuck with the pain of losing her and that guilt you’re carrying in your heart. It’s very painful, isn’t it?


Unknown: Give me your hand. If you stay here with me, you will have peace and feel no pain.





[The 6th Hokage’s home]


Kakashi: Ken, are you done yet? Your mom is waiting with your breakfast downstairs. You have to eat something before you go on your mission.

Ken: I’m almost done and going down.


Ken: By the way, dad. Can you look over the information of “Valley of Lonely”? I have to go to find the missing person here. I couldn’t really find much about that place.

Kakashi: Sure.


Ken: Apart from the almost hundred-year-old legend from the locals, I know almost nothing about it.

Kakashi: I see. It’s a forbidden place so no one is allowed to enter. The reason for this is because a lot of people have disappeared in there.


Kakashi: According to your notes, it says that everyone who comes across that place will get summoned by a mysterious voice. The farther they followed the voice, the more difficult it was to find their way out. It’s because inside is a valley that is covered with fog all the time. There is a theory that those who walk into that fog will never find their way out. Combined with the fear, it made a lost person lose control.

Ken: Does it sound like a siren?


Kakashi: You’ve got a lot of information. You should be careful about getting lost due to that fog and from possible Genjutsu. There may be a lot of unexpected things inside. Are you sure you want to do this mission? Should I send another team to help?

Ken: You worry too much. This mission looks very exciting. Nobody from my team is worried.


Kakashi: You’re not worried because you’re sure this mission isn’t related to ghosts, am I right?


Ken: Thinking about it makes me so frustrated! On my previous mission you just intended to tease me right? ‘Cause you know I’m scared of it. You should tell me first if there are ghosts involved!

Kakashi: Yes, yes. Let’s go eat. I’m hungry now.


Ken: Then give me a piggyback ride.

Kakashi: Hey, you’re heavy. Are you a child?

Ken: Yes, I am.


Kakashi: Sigh, when you’re in front of girls, you tend to act cool, but when you’re at home you act like a kid.. Why are you so heavy?

Ken: You’re so fussy, old man.


Naruto: We have arrived, Valley of Lonely.

Tsukune: Awesome!

Mibuna: So beautiful!

Naruto: There seems to be no way to go downstairs. We’ll have to walk down the cliff.


Ken: I’ll tie a rope here. If anyone gets lost, just follow this rope back to the starting point. Keep an eye on the symbols we made along the way and don’t walk too far from each other. Everyone understand?

– Yes!


– Oh, the deeper we go down, the more we can’t see anything. No wonder so many people got lost here.


Tsukune: Oh!


Naruto: Eh, what is this?

Tsukune: A clay statue? It looks like a human. So cool.

Mibuna: Why is there such a thing at this place? It’s creepy.


Ken: Don’t touch anything. We don’t know anything about this place, so be careful.

Tsukune: I..I know. You’re being very careful.



Tsukune: Ugh!


Naruto: Tsukune!? What happened?


Tsukune: Haha, it’s nothing, I stumbled on something.

Mibuna: You’re really clumsy!

Ken: I just told you not to walk too far away from the group.


– Eh?



– What the hell is this!!? Why are there two Tsukune!?

Tsukune: Who are you!?

Tsukune: What!? I’m the one who should ask who the hell you are!!?


Ken: I’m sorry. I have to tie you up until we find out who the real one is.

Tsukune: It’s okay, I need to find out who this guy really is. How dare you pretend to be me?

Tsukune: That’s my line you bastard! You watch out!


Naruto: So how do we prove who the real Tsukune is?

Ken: We’ll have to ask them personal questions only he can answer. Then we can let them use Tsukune’s jutsu one by one.

Mibuna: That’s a good plan. I’ll ask them some questions about our childhood. There’s no way the fake one can answer those questions.



Naruto: Unbelievable. Both of them can use Tsukune’s jutsu and they also answer all of our questions correctly.

Ken: How is it possible for the copy to have memories of the real one? What exactly is this place?


Mibuna: You’re not joking around with us by using your shadow clone to tease us, are you?

Tsukune: What?! Why would I do that?!


Naruto: A shadow clone!? I’ve figured out a good way.

Mibuna: Eh, really? Great! Naruto-sensei!


Tsukune: Eh?


Tsukune: W..Wait Naruto-sensei!!



– AHH!!


Naruto: Eh, that’s weird. Why didn’t the shadow clone disappear?

Mibuna: I forgot that Naruto-sensei uses his powers more than his brains…


Naruto: Maybe I didn’t hit hard enough..?

Tsukune: Stop! Naruto-sensei. Are you going to kill me!? The two of you, please stop him. I can’t run away from him right now!

Ken: S.. Sorry.


Mibuna: So how do we know who the real one is when their personalities and actions are all the same?

Ken: Now I know who the fake one is.


Mibuna: Eh, really? Ken-kun will…


Naruto: Hey, wait! Are you going to use Purple Electricity? Isn’t it too dangerous?
