Tsukune: Hey…



Ken: H… Hey….


Tsukune: What “Hey”! Why are you avoiding us? Have you ever seen us as friends? At least, you should have thought of us who were in Team 7 together.

Ken: Hey…

Mibuna: Tsukune.. just relax!


Tsukune: Since that happened, you asked to leave Team 7 without telling us your reason and also left the village. You tried to hide from us for two years. What were you doing like that for?!

Mibuna: Tsukune, I said relax. We weren’t here to fight with Ken-kun!


Ken: Sorry…


Tsukune: I expected you to say sorry. Even though you didn’t do anything wrong, damn it. I know how much you tried to protect us that day…


Tsukune: Ken, you are looking careworn. We normally do B-rank missions, what are you excited about?

Mibuna: Yeah, I haven’t seen you paying attention to this much.


Ken: Well, every time there is a Naruto-sensei here. What should I worry about? But this time there are only us. It’s too dangerous.

Tsukune: Don’t worry. I’ll take care of this myself. I will deliver it safely to the client.

Mibuna: Yes!


Ken: I don’t care about it. You guys are more important to me.


Tsukune: Oh, I really hate your straightforward talk. Do you not know how embarrassed it is?!

Ken: Hmm, why?


Ken: What is this feeling? So awkward.



Ken: Tsukune uses your Cyclone Jutsu! Mibuna gets down!



Tsukune: What are these weapons ?!

Wow, what is this? You are conscious of it really quickly. Such a good sense.


– Don’t you say that you can even hear the sound when I use the Weapon Summon Scroll? You’re not an ordinary person at all.

– Whoa, they’re probably just lucky.




Ken: What do you want?

Guy:  You should already know. The secret scroll that you are delivering.


Tsukune: How do they know?

Ken: I’m not surprised.

Guy: Don’t even think about running away because you can’t escape from us. Just send it to us, we will let you guys go.


I could smell the blood from them. Dealing with these brutal shinobis, I can’t take Tsukune and Mibuna to take the risk. I have to take them to a safe place first, and then I will find a way to get the scroll back.


Ken: Just stay still. I’ll handle it. Don’t stir up their anger.

Tsukune: Do you have a plan?


– Good boy. Just send it to me easily like this. No one gets hurt. We are not so mean like that. 

– Haha, what a pity. You guys seems to be scared.


Oh, that Kunoichi is very cute.


Tsukune: Leave her alone!!

Guy: Come on, I just want to look her face closer. That’s it. 


Ken: Hey! Don’t touch her. You said that you will leave us, won’t you?

Guy: Well, why do you say like I’m bullying you guys? I don’t do any bad things.


Guy: So pathetic. Who is the team leader? 

Ken: It’s me.


Haha. It’s hilarious. A coward like you is the leader?  Shinobis Konoha doesn’t have a better person, don’t you?


Tsukune: YOU…

Mibuna: Tsukune… just calm down.

Guy: Anyway, he is handsome until it makes me feel annoying. Did you guys see him protect this girl?


I will let you go. But this handsome leader has to kneel at my feet first.

– !!


– !!

– Haha, he actually did it!

– He will kneel in front of a girl.


Tsukune: Ken! What the hell are you doing? Are you crazy ?! You were never like this. I won’t let you do it. Let’s fight with them!

Ken: Tsukune, I said stay still!!

Guy: Haha, look, that guy is more suitable to be the leader than you. You are brave.


By the way…


A guy like this should be eliminated early.



– Arkk!! – Tsukune!!


Mibuna: Hold on, don’t move!!

Haha, you are really cruel.

– It is helpless. He is offensive.

– Hey! That girl is a medical ninja. Let’s take her with us.


Guy: Hey, don’t be scared like this. I don’t kill you because you are priceless.



Guy: Then I take the girl … eh?



Hey, he is fighting!

Wow, haha!


– I thought to let him go alone…

– Eh?



– He comes from the above?!!

– When?!!




– !!

– You little brat!!


Ken: I will kill you all…


You brat!!





– You are in the range.

– What! a Shadow Clone?!!


Lightning mesh!!

– Ark!!


Raiton: Shiden


Who is this kid?! He just killed these 3 guys within the blink of an eye.!! And also…


It is a ruthless kill…


Mibuna: Ken-kun!!



Genki: Hey, Ken-chan!

Ken: Genki, Dane, I’m sorry I have no time to explain. Just protect and escort Mibuna and Tsukune back to Konoha. Don’t care for me. If there are any people come closer to them, you can kill them. Got it?

Dane: Eh? Got it, Ken-chan!


– Ken-chan!!

– Ken-kun!!


Mibuna… Rescue Tsukune no matter what happens to me, don’t stop it … This is my order … As the team leader…


Genki: Ken-Chan. Let’s me…

Ken: No! You have to escort them. You must not disobey my order this time, Genki!


I use too many chakras. It is hard to stand… But I have to kill them all. Otherwise, Genki and Dane will be risky. Just another… one…




Damn it, he is weakened too. Let get him down.




Mibuna: [Scream]!!



Mibuna: Naruto-sensei!!


Are you guys alright?!!


Ken: Sensei…


Naruto: Hey, Ken!!

Mibuna: Ken-kun!!


Naruto: Hang on!!



Kakashi: Ken!!

Mina: Ken-chan!!


Ken: Dad! mom! Here… How are Tsukune and Mibuna? Genki and Dane too?!!

Kakashi: You don’t have to be worried, everyone is safe. Naruto helped them just in time.

Mina: Ken-chan, just take a rest…


Ken: Huhh… What a relieve…

Kakashi: Just take a rest. Don’t be too overthinking.


Ken: Dad, I… want to withdraw from Team 7, I am not worthy of it…

Kakashi: Ken! It’s not your fault, you know right ?!

Mina: Ken-chan, calm down!!


I know it was my fault! because I didn’t even dare to think and order until making my teammates almost die. I can’t be a leader… I can’t stand with a state of pressure! No matter how good your teammates are, they may all be dead. If there is a bad leader like me…


Kakashi: Ken, just listen to me…

Ken: Please… Let me go on a mission where it is far away for a while…



Kakashi: Fine, but you must promise me that you will be back home at least once a month, ok?

Mina: Kakashi! Why did you let him go so far away?

Kakashi: You know your son,  If he has already thought and decided. No matter what, you cannot stop him.


Kakashi: So? If you leave the village and lose contact, I will send someone out to look for you immediately, do you understand?


Ken: I understand. I promise… Thank you… Dad.

Kakashi: Then just go to bed for now. Don’t think anything.



Tsukune: Oh, it hurts… How is that bastard now?

Mibuna: Just worry about yourself. Ken-kun used too many chakras. He has not awakened yet, but Rokudaime-sama and Mina-san are always watching him.



Naruto: Hey, are you awake? They are safe, no worry. Let’s go eat ramen, I’ll treat you myself!!




[Begin solo missions]


1-2-3 information told me that there were 4 people…


– Yes, 4 people! if you move, you will die. Who sent you?

– Eh!!


Aw, I was so shocked!!

– Hey! I said don’t move!!


Eh? Lightning clone?!!



Ark, just let me go!!



Hmm, Substitution Jutsu?!!


– Where is he?!!

– Let’s cut this rope.


Got it!



You are not careful. You cut indiscriminately and didn’t even notice the explosive circuit copper wire under the rope.

(*Ken applied it to the Explosive Tag to create a mechanism to function conditionally.)


I thought about 3-4 backup plans, but I never used them. It is terrible.


Police: The authority has followed them for a long time, finally, they have been caught. We have to thank Hatake-san a lot.

Ken: You’re welcome. Well, excuse me then.


-This is a wonderkid. A son of Hokage that has a rumor that is bad and uses his dad’s connection?

He caught four thieves alone, is the rumor true?


That day, I should be planning to find a solution for the team in various ways, as always. But why at that time my brain couldn’t think of anything. The only thing I can think that is to do everything to keep those two of them safe.


Tsukune: Because of the guilt about that time, you left the team and avoided us, right?

Mibuna: Ken-kun, we never thought it was your fault at all!


Ken: It’s not just that … I can’t be the team leader. I cannot see you guys get hurt, don’t you know?

Tsukune: I understand! I don’t want you to be my leader because I know that you always pressure yourself. I don’t want you to be like that!


Ken: Eh?

Mibuna: We just don’t want you to hide from us like this…


Tsukune: Even if we are not on the same team and not doing missions together, that’s fine. Just to be friends again. Can you just not hide from us again?


Mibuna: We… including Taishiro and Sansho, everyone misses you so much, Ken-kun.


Ken: Really… I see…. So…


I’m sorry for… everything…



Tsukune: Stop apologizing, you’re crazy. Come here, we have a lot to talk about. We need to see Sansho and Taishiro first.

Mibuna: Hey, when did Ken-kun come back?

Ken: It was a while before Naruto-sensei became Hokage.

(* Naruto is Hokage now) Because my dad wanted me to come back to help the missions.


Mibuna: Eh? A solo mission? What kind of it? Oh, you are taller than before!

Ken: Well, that’s so many stuff. Caught a thief or a spy and spying some information. You know my dad, he is bossy.

Tsukune: Wow, so jealous! I haven’t done any missions since you left. Plus, Naruto-sensei is not quite free. Even after he has been Hokage, his work also has been busy. We seldom meet with him.
