Is done! Free to use for scanslations as long as you put my name somewhere. Page 1: Text: Shimakaru comes up with the "best move". What is his plan? Hidan: Hrrrrgh... Kakuzu: So that shadow jutsu forces you to mimic the user's movements... Page 2: Text: Shikamaru presses on! Title: There is no "after"! Hidan: Damnit...he knows... Izumo: What're you doing?? Shikamaru: I've gotta pull him out of that circle... If I can...his jutsu... and his curse...will be dispelled... Page 3: Izumo: Are you sure? Shikamaru: That huge scythe... there's a reason for the three blades. From what I can tell, he only needs to hit one attack, but he uses them to increase his range and chances of connecting. It doesn't matter if it's a serious wound or a minor one - their only purpose is to draw blood. Basically, as long as he lands one attack... he can use that jutsu to kill his opponent. Izumo: You mean the "curse"? But how does one small wound turn into that? Shikamaru: The blood. To curse his enemies and create that link between their two bodies, he needs to drink their blood. Izumo: I noticed him lick it off the blade... I get it now...he just needs to open a wound, get a little blood on his scythe, and then use it to "curse" them. Asuma: I see... Page 5: Shikamaru: Well, anyone would've noticed that his body changed after licking off the blood, but there's another requirement for that curse...though it's pretty obvious, too. Kotetsu: There's more? Kakuzu: This kid's pretty good. Shikamaru: He didn't just stand around and get hit by Asuma's fire jutsu. As soon as it started, he booked it back to that circle. Then he started shouting, "It's time to start the ceremony" and , "Everything's ready!" I'm thinking that he can only begin the curse jutsu after he steps inside the circle. Page 6: Hidan: Fuck...you... Shikamaru: Shut up. You talk too much. Kotetsu: He's unbelievable... Page 7: Hidan: FUCK YOU, YOU LITTLE SHIT! AFTER I GET FREE, I'M GONNA RIP YOU TO SHREDS! THEN BURN YOU TO ASH!! THEN GRIND YOU TO DUST!!! Shikamaru: There is no "after" for you! Hidan: Argh! Shikamaru: He's out! Asuma: Right! Let's see if the "curse" has been lifted! Page 8: Shikamaru: YES! Page 9: Hidan: Ungh! God damn you... I'm trapped... Page 10: Shikamaru: I'm wiped out... I don't think I can hold him much longer. Asuma: It'll be enough...good work, Shikamaru. Page 11: Hidan: Kakuzu! Help me out! HURRY THE FUCK UP! Kakuzu: I told you - if you're careless, you'll die. Page 12/13: HOLY FUCKING SHIT Page 14: Shikamaru: Whew... Izumo: We got him! Page 15: Asuma: Finally... Izumo: One down, one to go... Kakuzu: If you needed a hand, you should've asked me earlier. Page 16: Hidan: Fuck you and your slow ass! You LET that happen! Kakuzu: You said "Back the fuck off", you asshole. You're a goddamned HEAD and you're yelling at ME?? Hidan: Heheh...yeah, that's true, huh... But either way, I don't feel like sitting around while you make fun of me. Page 17: Hidan: Kakuzu... could you get me my body, pleeeease? Hidan: KAKUZU! Bring my body HERE, damnit! Kakuzu: Your head's lighter. FIN OMFG I can't get enough of these guys. Forza Kakuzu!
