Chapter 123: The Sensory Ninja, Being Kurama Tonan

“This ninja was not a chunin mentioned in the information, and judging from the chakra fluctuation, he must be special jonin. Since he was able to react before I got close, he must be a sensory ninja.”

“But the most important thing is that he’s actually blind. His eyeballs are dull and unfocused. They are obviously fake.”

“This is great. I’m chasing three enemies this time, and two of them are already so weird.”

The three tomoe in Uchiha Tonan’s eyes spun. Through the Byakugan’s perceptive vision, he saw that the ninja in front of him was continuously emitting weak chakra from his feet, connecting to the earth.

It seemed he relied on the earth to sense movements.

“But I jumped from the pole and he was able to sense even that. It seems his perception ability is very strong.”

“You four have observed me from the dark for so long. Are you finally willing to come out?”

The corners of the ninja’s mouth rose as he shouted. Then he frowned and paused for a moment, “Is there one more now?”

Tonan raised his eyebrows, his expression a little strange. From the man’s comment, Tonan realized he hadn’t sensed him but rather sensed…

At this moment, Namikaze Minato and Hatake Kakashi arrived one after another and formed a triangle with Tonan, surrounding the man.

Minato took out a kunai and solemnly asked, “Tonan, what’s going on?”

Tonan replied, “He’s an enemy spy who has stolen the village’s secrets. I’m chasing him.”

This was a bit troublesome. If there was no one around, Tonan would’ve simply killed the enemy together with the hostage. But in this situation, if he ignored the hostage’s safety, it would leave a bad impression on Minato and Obito.

From this aspect, the opponent this time had an advantage. By now Uchiha Obito and Nohara Rin arrived as well.

Obito pointed at the enemy and said, “Release that woman, you damned spy.”

Minato anxiously said, “Obito, Rin, don’t come here. Leave now.”

Rin was stunned for a moment but she soon pulled Obito’s sleeve and said, “Obito, let’s go back.”

The situation was critical and beyond their ability.

Obito pulled Rin behind him and said, “Rin, you are a future medical ninja. You should stay away from this.”

Rin hesitated for a moment and glanced at the enemy ninja in the distance. She then nodded and retreated.

Tonan stared at the ninja and said, “We are all ninjas. It’s just that our standing is different. Please don’t hurt ordinary people. They are innocent.”

A sinister smile appeared on the man’s face, and he said in a cold voice, “I’ll not hurt her, but you’ve to let me go.”

His hands, however, held the woman tighter, as if to threaten Tonan. Tonan shook his head and said, “No, you have stolen Konoha’s secrets. If I let you go, it would be a dereliction of my duty.”

“Stop blabbering rubbish. If you don’t want her to die, let me go now.”

The man moved his kunai closer to the woman’s smooth neck. His tone was more agitated as if he was about to kill her the next second. The woman was so frightened that she was almost unable to stand up> She stuttered while trembling, “Ninja… -sama…”

Tonan took a deep breath and chuckled, “Do you think I’m negotiating with you? I’m just going through the standard procedure before beginning the fight. When it comes to the interests of the village and country, small sacrifices are permitted.”

Obito looked at Tonan in disbelief, “Tonan, you bastard, what’re you saying?”

He couldn’t understand how Tonan was able to say such cold-blooded and cruel words. That was a human life!

Minato was a little angry and yelled, “Shut up, Obito.”

A sinister smile appeared on the enemy ninja’s face, “Don’t act cruel here. If you truly don’t care about her life or death, why haven’t you made a move yet?”

Tonan’s expression became cold and indifferent. He asked in a calm tone, “Who said I haven’t made a move? You’ve fallen into my genjutsu from the very beginning. Didn’t you notice how I appeared suddenly?”

The enemy ninja thought about it. He truly hadn’t noticed when Tonan appeared  and he had a bad premonition in his heart.

At this moment, Tonan’s lips moved slightly, and using the voice transmission effect of Wind Communication, he spoke in the enemy ninja’s ears, “Let me introduce myself, I’m Konoha’s five sensory genjutsu special jonin, Kurama Tonan.”

What!

The enemy ninja had heard of the Konoha’s Kurama clan. He became alert. He felt the voice unexpectedly coming from the left, right, and in front of him at the same time. In particular, the voice from the front was coming from the hostage in his hands.

“I already have your information. You are a sensory ninja that relies on earth. It’s a pity I can manipulate your five senses. Speaking of which, why are you holding my shadow clone?”

Swish~

Tonan immediately jumped up, breaking away from the enemy’s earth perception. At the same time, he used vocal mimicry to imitate sharp blades flying through the air.

The ninja instinctively retreated to where there was no sound. He circulated chakra to break the genjutsu.

However… this was not genjutsu!

Minato took advantage of this time window to use Flying Thunder God and save the woman.

“Tonan, well done.”

Tonan hadn’t expected this pleasant surprise. He was making such moves because he wanted to stimulate the enemy ninja and make him kill the woman quickly so as to avoid wasting time. He reached out to grab the chakra tanto on his back, but he stopped.

Crackle, crackle, crackle~

The White Fang Blade covered in lightning slashed toward the enemy ninja’s arm. He paused and made hand seals.

“Earth Style – Rock Gate Technique.”

Instantly, a hard stone slab rose from the ground in front of Kakashi. But under the restraining chakra attribute, Kakashi’s White Fang Blade smoothly cut the stone slab in half and chopped off the opponent’s arm all in one go.

Blood gushed out from the wound and the severe pain drenched the ninja’s body in a cold sweat. He staggered a few steps back and soon after, turned around and ran in Obito’s direction.

“Even if I die, I’ll drag down some Leaf ninjas with me.”

Obito was so petrified by the enemy’s murderous intent aggressively rushing at him that his legs trembled, and he was unable to move a step.

“Move! Run!” He kept shouting in his heart but the result was that he stumbled and fell on his butt.

At that moment, a sharp blade pierced through the man’s heart from the back. Blood splattered on Obito’s face, and he was completely scared out of his wits.

In front of him, the enemy ninja’s face was still full of ferociousness, like a demon from hell. But a bloody blade tip was protruding out from his heart with blood still flowing out from it.

At that instant, Obito’s eyes turned scarlet and one tomoe slowly spun in it.
