    Anyone reading Shikamaru Shinden?
    Spoiler:
    It projected a side of Shikamaru we last seen during the immortal arc. So basically, the shinobi world is in the brink of a 5th shinobi war, no thanks to the Hidden stone intention to inflitrate and take over the village of the hidden flower. Naruto tries to reason with Kurotsuchi to stop with no avail, only for Shikamaru to encumber the entire Gokage with his shadow jutsu, and tell them right at their face, their bickering makes no sense. Then he tells Kurotsuchi and Chojuro (who happens to support her in her plan to infiltrate the hidden flower) that if a war happens, they won't be able to touch Konoha, not with Naruto and Sasuke having the strength to destroy the entire shinobi continent. Subsequently, he threatens to break her neck if she doesn't put an end to her plans.....much later, in other to avert the war, he bargains with Mirai to let Shojoji capture Tentou so his father, the fire Damiyo would be willing to ameliorate the issue by meeting with the earth damiyo.



    What I found fascinating about this; is Shikamaru willingness to go to the extreme to protect the world's peace, just as Danzo did. Is he justified..?

    I like that. From a "finally some change" angle. And what's going to come of that.

    whoa ten tou's stuff is Shikamaru's fault?

    holy moly stop the dude right now... lol Naruto being a bad Dad was partly Shika's fault too epsecially not even allowing clones to play with Boruto

    but threats, manipulation and allowing criminal acts for certain things is Danzou light

    I can't believe Shikamaru shinden had the most plot relevancy and most compelling storyline compare to other novel. Still all these shinden novels had more depth than how Kishi portrayed in his manga

    I've being saying this is easily the best Naruto novel storywise. It actually has something at stake that has a good chance of getting damaged.

    absolutely; the fact that they're even considering an act of war while 2 literal demi-gods walk the earth, speaks to how they shouldn't be allowed to procreate.

    The mindset of these kages is super retarded.

    I can understand them being wary of Sasuke considering his past, but what the hell has he done to make them afraid? He has a wife and a kid. He isn't going place himself in a situation to get them assassinated.

    Likewise to Naruto. He's done nothing but save everyone's ass since Shippuden and the Kage's are mad that Naruto/Sasuke could wipe out the continent? If they wanted to kill them, they would of done so a LONG time ago. Not when they are peak 30s trying to hold peace :skully

    I low key hope the war starts so I can see them being killed. Those Villages breed nothing but trash anyway.

    I have a feeling Kara, when they go public will try and say they want the shinobi system to be abolished and access to ninja stuff available to all people, ninjas and non ninjas

    that military cities have no need to exist

    if a war does ever happen then Kara could push those ideals heavily

    and if I'm not mistaken this is all due to a food shortage or some bullshit right?

    bruh, call ya boy Nardo; he got the Yamato-wood hook up. The guy will grow you a forest overnight.

    Wtf is wrong with these scrubkages? tbh sounds like they need a good old chibaku tensei :ippy

    Yeah Sasuke didn't do anything to Iwa or Kiri...heck he did Iwa a favor by killing Diedara. Only Konoha and Kumo should be hating on the Sauce.

    I suppose Iwa and Kiri feel odd men out since you know Naruto is actually personally close to Gaara and Killerbee not so much the rest of them. And I suppose the balance of power is out of wack if you Consider Naruto and Sasuke are gods and eh Kumo has moon destroying lasers.

    But it stills dumb when you know Aliens are incoming. And there should be enough jutsus that can grow crop.

    The next generation of both Kiri and Iwa are trash, so I'm all for both of them being wiped out in a war they wanted to start. Delicious irony.

    I haven't read the novels, but I heard in the novels Shikamaru does not have that lovefest with Naruto that he does in the anime... That he be hating.

    I heard he actually didnt like how Naruto/Sasuke were getting so much credit after the war, and that he didnt think Kakashi deserved to be hokage.

    Kurotsuchi was bitching about the mission she herself agreed to send Sasuke to

    it is that retarded

    what do you do when you are planning to go to war with Kumo, who has a perfect jin and a moon busting chakra canon, while you have neither?

    aggravate Konoha, which has two even more OP walking nukes, to ensure that they along with Suna will side against you

    and after Konoha took care of the new 7 foddermen situation as well

    indeed, the degeneration of the relationship between the villages and Kages because of Daimyo Ex Machina in the novel is ridiculous

    seriously - from smiling and posing on fotos together after bringing down a planet level threat, to frothing at the mouth and spewing nonsense just in a couple of days gotta be a record

    Hope these Shinden novels are mostly ignored, aside from the SoL parts being used for anime filler or something. The novels that adapt the early anime arcs, I take with a grain of salt while taking into consideration some things from them, as they expand on existing material. This Shikamaru one, though, makes no sense... :catpathy
