Chapter 43

Chapter 43: Concurrent Graduation

In the Yamanaka household, Ryo and Inoichi discussed the Healing Stone . Inoichi, being the head of his family, he should be dumb to not realize the great benefit that this idea could bring .

Among the 3 clans of the Ino-Shika-Cho alliance, the Nara’s are in charge of maintaining the normal operation of Konoha’s Pharmaceutical System . This means that they are mainly in charge of providing medical herbs inside Konoha .

The income that they get from that is enormous . In the Manga, that’s why they use their pills as they like .

The Akimichi’s secret pills are the origin of soldier food pills . Therefore, all soldier food pill sales contribute to the Akimichi’s income .

Only the Yamanaka’s have no specialty business and no share in income of any supplies . Most of the clan’s expenses are covered by the rewards that its members get for mission .

This Stone that Ryo came up with made Inoichi see a bright opportunity for the tribe to improve their living conditions . He approved Ryo’s idea and encouraged him to carry on .

A few days later, Ryo and Inoichi were summoned by the 3rd .

In his office, the Hokage and Jiraya were waiting for the two to arrive . The latter delivered a report to the 3rd the previous day mentioning Ryo’s experiments with the healing stones .

The Hokage understood well the value of such a stone to the village . This will actually give Konoha a huge edge in the upcoming war, and increase its Ninja’s survival rates greatly .

The two Yamanaka’s, Ryo and Inoichi arrived at the office . The 3rd went straight to the point and asked: “Ryo, could these stones be mass-produced?”

Ryo shook his head . Even though he didn’t even give himself time to sleep, he couldn’t make many stones . So the 3rd asked him:

“Then, how many can we make per day?”

“A maximum of 30 a day . ” Ryo answered him after giving it some thought .

The 3rd nodded and Jiraya said that his own estimate was not so different . Judging from Jiraya’s report, the Sand has internal problems currently and they shouldn’t be able to go to war anytime soon .

With the pace of 30 stones a day, there will be plenty of reserves for Konoha before the war starts . This made the 3rd very satistfied .

“Inoichi, I think you also understand that this kind of stone should have a great significance to the village and to the Yamanaka’s . As the head of your clan, tell us how you think things should go?”

“Hokage sama, the village is responsible of helping our clan in buying jade . And out of each sale of a Healing Stone, 30% of the revenue should go to the village . ” Selling the stones should be under the Yamanaka’s control, Inoichi knew that well .

After that, the two went on for quite some bargaining . Finally, they settled on making the village buy the Jade, and on giving it 40% of the income in return .

The two sides were very satisfied with this result; and Ryo’s mission in the hospital was put to a halt: Making the stones was his new mission, one that’s considered B-Rank .

A bit more than a month later, Ryo was making the stones in the 3rdtraining ground when Yugao entered through the door under Kakashi’s guidance .

Yugao’s performance in Kenjutsu wasn’t comparable to that of the super talented Kakashi, but it was still great compared to most people .

However, Kakashi discovered a lot of her basic flaws after spending over a month teaching her . Sakumo pointed out before that his son never puts his heart into anything unless he sees how serious the problem is . Now, Kakashi was no longer so repellent to teaching Yugao .

Ryo asked him: “Kakashi, do you want to go to the academy today?”

“The academy? Why?” Kakashi asked Ryo .

“Rin and Obito are graduating today, didn’t you know?”

Kakashi shook his head . Actually, even Ryo didn’t know about the graduation . But just a moment ago, while he was making a stone, Ryo perceived it with his Sage mode .

“Wanna go see them?” Kakashi asked .

“Okay!” Ryo hasn’t seen Obito and Rin for quite a long time .

“Yugao, we’re going to the academy to see our classmates’ graduation exams . Do you want to go?”

“No I can’t Ryo Nii-san, I want to practice harder . ”

After some hard work, Yugao was finally calling Ryo Nii-san instead of Ryo san . This made him really happy .

So he and Kakashi went to the Ninja academy and were there just in time to catch up with Kurenai taking the exam . Passing it was no problem for the girl from the prestigious Yuhi clan .

After that, it was Asuma’s role, whose exam went smoothly, as its subject was fire release .

“Next, Might Guy!”

Whenever Guy was tested before, students laughed . His Ninjutsu skills were bad, and he couldn’t perform Genjutsu . He was only good with Taijutsu .

The school’s graduation assessment is generally based on testing students with all 3 techniques . But now that there’s a war that’s about to break out, Konoha needed more Ninjas, more Cannon Fodder to enter the battlefield .

Guy was able to impress the 3rd, and the director put him in the elite class because of that .

Unlike other kids, children in the elite classes were the one that are expected to be the pillars of the future of Konoha . These kids usually end up with elite Jonins as instructors .

The drums of war were knocking . So the teacher was free to determine the subject for each student . For Gay, it was Taijutsu, so he excelled with ease .

(Translator note: Didn’t the 6 year old Kakashi beat Guy in the the Chunin exam? Now Kakashi is 8 so, shouldn’t Guy be a Genin already? Well, maybe this is all the butterfly effect or something . )

“Next, Obito Uchiha… Obito Uchiha… Are you there?!”

The examiner’s deliberate repetition made the students laugh out loud . Because he was an Uchiha, he was put in the elite class . But his performance was only slightly better than Guy’s, and he had this problem with punctuality . He was turning little by little into Konoha’s “King of Late” .

The subject of Obito’s exam was [Cloning Jutsu] . The Uchiha clan teaches this technique to their children at a very young age . So Obito had no problem with it .

Later on, it was Rin’s turn . Like Sakura, she had great Chakra control .

After the last student’s exam was completed, all of the members of the elite class had easy success . Afterwards, their teacher gave them a lengthy speech, after which he offered them their forehead protectors . With that, Obito and the others officially became Ninja .

“Rin, Obito, this way!”

“Kakashi Yaro, Ryo Kuzo, I graduated too!” Obito’s was being the usual Obito as he was yelling to the two .

“Kakashi, Ryo, what brought you here?” Rin asked .

“We were bored and we came to see your exam . ” Ryo answered her .

While the 4 were chatting, other student noticed the two familiar faces .

“Are those Kakashi and Ryo?”

Both of them have been established as examples for the students . Kakashi was the youngest graduate in the history of the academy, and the youngest Chunin ever . Ryo was a great medic with skills comparable to those of Tsunade .

“Kakashi, Obito, Rin, this sounds like trouble . I didn’t come to deal with all of these students, I just came by to see you and invite you on a barbecue to celebrate your graduation . See you guys in the barbecue shop next to the 3rdtraining ground . ” As Ryo finished his words, he activated his lightning Chakra mode and instantly left .

Kakashi also did the same thing, and left them there . Obito and Rin looked at each other and rushed out of the crowd towards the Barbecue shop .
