|[Hatake Ken, 14 year-old]
Ken: He… uses Earth Release. He’s very strong and fast… No physical weakness. Then, I…
Boy: Hey! When will you stop dodging? You have nothing to amuse me, do you? Such a loser.
|Ken: Don’t underestimate your rival. I’m just waiting for you to do the hard work for me.
Boy: Work for you?!
|Let me show you my poison techniques, which are my specialty.|
|-P…poison?!! (What’s he going to do!?)|
|Ken: Don’t look around!
Boy: (He used that nylon thread to besiege me?!)
|-Eh? What’s he doing?
–Is he using poison?
|W…what the hell are you trying to do!!?|
|Hey! Be careful! Don’t get hurt by the nylon thread, whenever the poison gets to your heart…I’m afraid you won’t be saved in time.|
|Ken: C’mon! Let’s continue our game!
|-Don’t be overconfident!
|Jezz! That was a close call!!|
|Poor fool! You just dug your own grave. I’ll beat you with your own poison.|
|Ken: You did great, I didn’t expect you could escape so quickly. I almost got you.
Boy: The only skill you have is taijutsu (Melee Techniques)?
|(It’s hard to move like before because I have to beware of the threads. Damn it! It distracts me!)|
|Boy: Whatever! I’m gonna cut this shit!
Ken: Hey! Hold on, don’t do that. Time-out.
|Why? Is it your last chance to survive?|
|Ok. Go ahead.|
|-W…what… don’t tell that if the nylon is being cut, the poison will go in the air?
|(Wait! Shall I cut it? It’s difficult to fight If I have to cover my nose all the time… But if I don’t cut it, it’s also hard to move.)|
|Because you were only concerned about my thread… Well, it was just a high flexible nylon thread… nothing poisonous.(Importantly, I’m not a poison expert though.)|
|– [The winner is Hatake Ken!]
Kakashi: Haha! The cunning boy.
|Mina: Excellent, Ken-chan!
Kurenai: He’s very smart.
|Naruto: Way to go! Baka! Haha!!
Boruto: Ken-nii chan is very cool!
|Ken: You saw it, dad? I won! I did great, right!?
Kakashi: More than great!
|The elders are really impressed. You will pass the chunin exam for sure.|
|Ken: Wait a sec, dad! I only used one taijutsu and didn’t even use ninjutsu. His skills are better than me. How come I pass the exam!?
Kakashi: Well, it’s true that win or lose the match isn’t a factor to pass the exam. However, you were cleverer and more ingenious than him. And that’s enough to let you pass the chunin exam.
|Ken: No, I don’t need it. Because of things like this people judged me because of my father’s connection. And you still let me pass the chunin exam!? C’mon!
Kakashi: You usually don’t care about anyone’s words, do you? You don’t want to pass the test because you don’t want to have more responsibilities, right?
|However, a chunin is a chunin. I’d rather tell your mother to prepare the celebration dinner tonight. Haha!
Ken: Didn’t you heard me when I said I refused?
Tsukune: Awesome! Ken.
