Oreo then brought her to Neverland, where she served him, but only as a means to get closer to Sasuke. No mention of what she did to Sasuke that one time that Suigetsu talked about.
Quote:
Ten Ten-
"Since the other members of Team Gai are freakishly strong, Tenten is an indisposable part of the team, as she guides everyone with her cool disposition." Blah blah blah rehash of book 2 about her weapons use, nothing new/special.

Usually a calm person, though one time he became so angry that he devoured an entire village, earning him the fearsome nickname Tenbin. Cursing his existence, he took to secluding himself in caves, until Kimimaro came to him. Following Kimimaro, Juugo went to one of Oreo's human experimentation labs, and that's how the curse seal came to be. Both Kimimaro and Orochimaru died as time passed, and he went back into seclusion. The light that beckoned him forth again was Sasuke, the person Kimimaro entrusted his life to.

--------------

UPDATE:


From - Nihongaeri...

Quote:
Hidan

Hidan hails from Yugakure (the Village Hidden Amongst Hot Springs), the village purported to have forgotten war.
Even as the Great Wars disappeared from the world and the Hidden Villages were scaled back as military powers, those with an abundance of nature and tourist resources gained positive position in the new times. Hidan, who had lived as a shinobi constantly starved for strife, grew frustrated and discontent with this new pacifism, eventually directing his feelings at the village itself.
It was inevitable that the newly found religion of Jashin would set its eyes on him.
Thou shalt massacre thy neighboor.
The religion's teachings would prove be abundant with elements that affirmed Hidan's own desires.

Height - 177.1 cm
Weight - 58.8 kg

Hidan was 22.
Quote:
Kakuzu -

Kakuzu was given the mission to assassinate the Hokage, but was defeated by the Mokuton jutsu. The next sentence says something like he returned to his village barely alive. Apparently the forbidden jutsu Kakuzu used to get the hearts or whatever is called "Jiongu". The kanji split up mean something like "Earth Hatred Fear"

All that awaited him (when he returned from his mission to kill the Hokage) was the dishonor of failing his mission and heavy punishment. Feeling intense hatred for village's cruel deeds after he risked his life for it (or something along those lines), he broke out of prison.

After that is where he learns the forbidden jutsu and kills the village leaders. jutsu and kills the village leaders.

Age 91
Kishimoto - Why the Kyuubi's seal is weakening, why Naruto can only go up to 4 tails in his transformation, what Karin did to Sasuke in the past, whether Kushina is still alive or not, and how Kakashi gained the Mangekyou Sharingan will all be revealed in the manga itself.

Quote:
Yamato

Graduated Academy age 6
Promoted to Chuunin age 6

C. Chiyo was 73 years old.

D. Kakuzu was 91 years old, which makes him the oldest with perhaps the exception of Madara, who's age is not revealed.

E. Madara's brother was named Izuna, and he died in battle, after he'd given up his eyes. Why they'd send a blind man into battle is beyond me.

F.The "three great doujutsu" are confirmed to be "Sharingan", "Byakugan" and "Rinnegan." The only confirmed power of Rinnegan is to allow a person to use all five elements.

G. Kishimoto answers the question of what would happen if a Hyuuga and an Uchiha had a kid in a humorous tone: one of the kid's eye's would be Sharingan, the other Byakugan.

H. Deidara was 19 years old. Heh! Pretty young.

I. Kakashi's Mangekyou Jutsu is called "Kamui" (Power of the Gods).

J. Design wise, Pain's beads are meant to evoque "self infliction" of pain.

K. Konan's wearing a pretty sexy gettup under that Akatsuki cloak. It's kinda like Karin's outfit, except strapless, and partially reveals her outter bossom. She's got a pierced belly buttom.

L. Gaara's lost Shukaku, but not his use of sand and his trademark eyes.

This is the info we know so far , and if this is left open ill keep checking over there and adding to this post so its all in one place, so we dont have to go shuffling through posts in a 50 page thread.

A small funny story about Kakashi:

Kakashi's face is finally unveiled (Title page) on the right the dogs are arguing over what he looks like, because Naruto is curious, then they all agree on the one on the left, which shows Kakashi smiling with his teeth gleaming like Guy.....



Title: Sha no Sho: ~Kakashi's face is finally unveiled

"Special original manga by Kishimoto-sensei!!"

Pakkun: What's the matter, Naruto?

*look look*

Naruto: Shhhh!

Naruto: Don't speak so loud!

Naruto: Listen... Today I secretly came here to ask you something.

Pakkun: What?

Naruto: I'm tired of waiting, I wanna know how Kakashi-sensei's face looks like!

Pakkun: Uh, you've never seen it?

Naruto: So you have??

*excited*

Pakkun: Of course. We are his ninken after all.

Naruto: Do you have.. uhm, photos?

Pakkun: Nope.. No photos exist.

Pakkun: He doesn't like them.

Naruto: Uuhmm...

Naruto: Well, then tell me about it, about how it's like!

Guruko: I'll explain it to you, just look at my thoughts.

Guruko: Ok! This is Kakashi's face.

*EXCITED*

Bisuke: No, it's like this.

Akino: ...That's right.

Guruko: I-it's this, this!

Uuhei: Yeah... It's this one.

Bisuke: Oh yeah, it was like that!

Naruto: S-so it was like this...!

Naruto: Yesss! I must tell Sakura-chan~~!

Kakashi: What's all this noise while I'm eating?

Re: Databook 3

::secret character creation sketches:::

I took some (crappy) photos of the sketches Kishimoto did to create the grown-up versions of his characters. I'll also roughly translate (aka "the meaning is fine, just ignore the horrible English adaptation") what he says about them... Click the names to see the pictures. Note: the "LOLs" are actually in there, it's not my comment (though sometimes I do agree 8D).

Naruto Uzumaki, Sakura Haruno, Sasuke Uchiha

-Naruto: "The forehead protector is slightly wider"
"Actually, the main characteristic of Naruto's clothes is his forehead protector. In the earlier version the line used to show the "thickness" of the metal and the line of the cloth part were very close, and that made it kind of difficult to draw the eyebrows that were right under that. For this reason, I made the cloth wider. This made both the metal's and the cloth's thickness visible, plus the eyebrows are a lot easier to draw. Besides that I also removed the rolled up part of Naruto's pants and changed his shoes from sandals to high-cut boots. Showing too much the ankle looked childish, so I tried to fix that."
-Sakura: "Sakura changed from China-style dress to karate suit..."
"I changed Sakura's clothes from the previous China-style ones to a more lively karate suite style. I gave her boots and gloves. The upper part, though, still has a Chinaesque feeling to it, so as to make her more feminine."
-Sasuke: "I thought I had to make him look cool!"
"I changed my mind a lot of times in my quest to make him look cool. I tried to put a "shimenawa" (the rope, ndt) around him to preserve Orochimaru's style.. I tried a turtleneck to show cleanliness.. I tried a military uniform.. In the end I just chose Japanese-style clothes and left his chest naked (LOL)."

Sai, Shikamaru Naara, Chouji Akmimichi, Shino Aburame

-Sai: "I tried to make him look interesting to a certain extent by showing his belly (LOL)"
"Since he's Sasuke's successor, I thought that he had to somehow look cool and interesting...The result is his exposed belly (LOL). I also made him look unbalanced on purpose by making the gloves different in length."
-Shikamaru: "The focal point is the forehead protector on his arm"
"I wanted him to be unique despite wearing a normal chuunin vest. That's why I decided to put his forehead protector on his arm, so that it wouldn't hide his peculiar hair line."
-Chouji/Kiba: "One similar to his dad and a ninken rider"
"As for Chouji, in the past I've drawn his father Chouza, so I thought he might just follow his style. Kiba rides Akamaru, so he has sweat-proof clothes. Like those of a ninken rider (LOL)."
-Shino: "Even Shino's bag is stuffed with bugs"
"I eventually decided that Shino must be dressed in layers (LOL). I decided not to show much his face and other parts of his body to make him look eerie. He's also a bug user, so even his backpack is full of bugs."

Tenten, Ino Yamanaka, Akamaru, Hinata Hyuuga

-Tenten: "Her design is my favorite"
"Tenten wears a comfortable three-quarter China dress. I tried to think about the ease of movement when I drew it. This Tenten is my favorite design."
-Akamaru: "Akamaru..... well, I just made him bigger"
"I just made Akamaru bigger (LOL). His face is the same as before. I never decided a specific breed for him. I just thought of him as a dog that gets bigger and bigger and that would be able to carry Kiba around."
-Ino: "She was full of bandages, so I removed them"
"The previous Ino was covered in bandages, so I first removed those. Then I thought about the ease of movement, and since she's a girl I tried to leave some parts of her body exposed."
-Hinata: "Hinata is cute-but-uncool (LOL)"
"Hinata has to look simple, so I tried to cover all of her body and to give her a "provincial" feel. She's not interested in fashion... so I do want her to look cute, but in an unfashionable way. ...Cute-but-uncool (LOL)"

Pain, Konan, Zetsu, Hidan

-Pain: "I wanted coolness and danger"
"He's Akatsuki's leader, so he has to look cool at least to a certain extent, but I also wanted him to look dangerous. Since his name is "Pain", I decided to put some piercings on his body. Kind of like a person who gives pain to himself".
-Hidan: "Bones and a scythe remind of a shinigami"
"Hidan uses curses and such, so I wanted him to look similar to a shinigami. That's why he carries a scythe and bones. I originally planned the scythe to have a lot of tricks, but I didn't have time to show all of them... (LOL)."
-Konan: "Yeah, she's obscene... but she wears clothes (LOL)"
"I'd thought since the beginning to have Konan as the only woman in Akatsuki, so I tried to make her somewhat obscene, but...... In truth, she wears the Akatsuki mantle above that (LOL). And then, she transforms into paper right away..."
-Zetsu: "I originally wanted to make Akatsuki into a group of monsters"
"Zetsu is modeled after an insectivorous plant. I originally wanted Akatsuki to be a group of individuals with close to no human characteristics. I decided to make Zetsu half black and half white to better show his double personality."

I forgot to take photos of the page with the Nibi and Sanbi, but anyway...
-Nibi: "If it was just a cat it would be too cute..."
"There's actually a youkai (Japanese folklore monster, ndt) called "Nekomata", so the Nibi was easy to imagine. With two tails.. But if it was just a cat it would look too cute, so I tried to make him more beastlike, sort of similar to a tiger or lion, to make him look more powerful."
-Sanbi: "I've always liked monsters (LOL)"
"I've always liked monsters, youkai and huge creatures. With Sanbi I tried to mix many kinds of those. Its body recalls a turtle, and its tails are modeled after shrimps."
Konan looks hawt. Get that Akatsuki robe off goddamn it.

Quote:
I'll translate the very short Q&A session to which Kishimoto answered. It's 4am, ignore my horrible English.

--------------------
**About the sensei**

Q. How do you choose the characters' names?
A. I think about Japanese nouns and decide which ones might be good as names.

Q. What character would you like as your girlfriend?
A. No one. It's characters I create, after all...

Q. If you were a girl, who would you like as your boyfriend?
A. Shikamaru. He's smart and looks like he might be successful in life.
--------------------
--------------------
**About the characters**

Q. Do members of Akatsuki pairs sleep somewhere at night?
A. They get two single rooms.

Q. Now that Gaara doesn't have the Ichibi anymore he's unable to use the sand, right?
A. Both the sand and the rings around his eyes are there for good, they can't be taken away.

Q. If a Hyuuga and an Uchiha had a child together, what eyes would s/he get?
A. His right eye would be a Sharingan. Meaning that the left one would be a Byakugan! (LOL)

Q. If I drank Suigetsu would I get diarrhea?
A. He would just come out from your bottom.

Q. Why is Naruto able to summon Gamakichi if he signed the contract with Gamabunta?
A. Because signing a contract with Gamabunta means that he's able to summon not only him but any toad.

Q. What is Naruto's "new erotic ninjutsu"...?
A. I'd like to draw it one day. I can do it anytime, I just need the editor's approval.
--------------------
--------------------
**About the mysteries**

Q. Why did the Kyuubi's seal gradually fade?
Q. Why was Naruto able to grow up to four tails?
Q. What did Karin do to Sasuke in the past?
Q. Is Kushina alive?
Q. How did Kakashi awaken his Mangekyou Sharingan?

A. It's a secret!! Just keep on reading the manga!

Answering the question "Is there anything interesting in Itachi's profile, for example about his illness?"

About Itachi, let's see.. I browsed the entry (it's a bit long, I didn't read it fully, but I think my overview was decently thorough XD) and most of it just says what we already know, that is Itachi's past, what he did for the village, Sasuke etc. It doesn't say anything about his illness, his blindness or such :/ It doesn't even say anything about how he obtained his Mangekyou in detail or about Shisui, which I would've actually liked to know.. I still hope we will find out one day...

The only thing that might be interesting to know, or well, that might be useful to explain what happened in the manga, is what it says under "Naruto" and "Mangekyou Sharingan".
Under "Naruto" it says that Itachi saw Naruto as the one person able to save Sasuke and the village, that's why he told him what he did and "he put his hopes in him". And I guess also why he gave him some of his strength, though that isn't mentioned. This piece of info doesn't surprise me, but maybe some people were wondering...
Under "Mangekyou Sharingan" it says "He sacrificed himself and by having his younger brother witness his death he left him the 'Mangekyou Sharingan'. 'I will always exist, with you'... Itachi decided to continue to protect Sasuke even after his death." Judging by how it's written, it looks like the point (to get the Mangekyou, I mean) is not Sasuke killing Itachi, but Sasuke seeing Itachi die.
Sorry, that had to be asked =)

Quote:
Nothing special about Nagato. It talks about how the Second Ninja War totally ruined his life. He lost both his parents. But at that time he miraculously gained one of the 3 Great Doujutsu, the Rinnegan, when he was trying to save his friend. (at least confirms that he wasn't born with it . He activated it while saving Yahiko)

Rikudou Sennin - nothing new. All as stated in the manga.

He is the ancestor of shinobi. He created all the jutsu. He can bring peace or destruction to the world. I can't read the last sentence though.


Rinnegan
Held by Rikudou Sennin, ancestor of shinobi. Noted by its ripple shape. One of the 3 Great Doujutsu along with Sharingan and Byakugan (so, confirmed the third one is Byakugan). Known as the noblest eye. Holder can learn all the ninjutsu and all 5 elemental recompositions (yes, only 5). It's said that he will either be the God of Creation that brings peace to the world or the Destroyer that ruins the world.

One-hit-kill duet
The legendary secret technique of Myobokuzan. A harmony sung by 2 or more toads. Listener's mind will be bound in the genjutsu world. It requires long years of training in order to learn it.

The sennins couple having been living together for hundreds of years.

Its weakness is that the location of the user can be found.

The song can only be done with toad's vocal range. It's impossible for humans to sing it.

There is omitted info.

The reason why Susano-o is boasted to be flawless in both offense and defence is due to the "spiritual equipments" held in both hands.

Be it physical or spiritual, ninjutsu or physical attacks, all these become futile in front of such godly effects.

Small caption of the gourd:
The sake that spills from the gourd forms the shape of a sword and the Totsukano Tsurugi appears! Also, spirits absorbed by the sword gets sealed back into the gourd.

Small caption of Totsukano Tsurugi:
In the same line as Kusanagi no Tsurugi, this sword has the power to eternally seal the person it stabs in a hypnotic world. The sword itself possesses "Fuuinjutsu" (sealing technique).

Small caption of Yatano Kagami:
A spiritual shield that does not possess a physical form. It has all the "Seishitsu Henka" (Element modifying ability) capabilities and can nullify all jutsu by changing its own elemental nature accordingly.
Holy shit!

Quote:
As for Shouten no Jutsu, it says this:
"Pain gives to a subject a part of an Akatsuki member's chakra to create a sophisticated 'copy' that is used to fight in their place. The ability of the copy is proportional to the chakra that was given to it, and it's also possible to use the original's abilities. However, when the chakra is over the jutsu ends and the subject dies. It's a merciless jutsu that uses up even the subject's own chakra."

The captions say:
-"Pain is the one who decides the chakra quantity and performs the jutsu."
-"With Shouten no Jutsu the copy is also able to use the same weapons and ninja tools as the original." (like for example Kisame's Samehada, ndt)
-"After Shouten no Jutsu is used, the copy looks exactly the same as the original."
-"Of course the copy can use the same ninjutsu as the original. Even the Uchiha clan's peculiar 'Katon - Goukakyuu no Jutsu' is perfectly recreated."

EDIT: Oh I forgot, the jutsu has no difficulty rank, so I guess it's unique to Pain. I reckon it's a Rinnegan thing, although there's no "kekkei genkai" written on it.

The whole process takes days to be performed by Akatsuki-level shinobi; average ninja wouldn't even be able to summon the statue."

Re: Databook 3

UPDATE:

Quote:
Okay, Kakuzu's skills, as given in the Databook. (Too lazy to scan and clean up)

Katon - Sukkoku 火遁・頭刻苦 (B ranked)
Drops a small fireball on the ground and it will cause a widespread of fire to the surroundings. If boosted by wind chakra, it can cause massive destruction to the terrain with its explosive burning capabilities.

Ji-on-gu 地怨虞 (B ranked)
A grotesque jutsu that controls chakra in the form of black tentacles emerging from the body that is capable of long distance combat. Using this, Kakuzu can choose to fight close-up or faraway. Also, the tentacles can be used to grab the opponents' hearts and exploits the use of the various elements of chakra obtained, this is how he could use all the basic five types of element-based jutsus and also live as a semi-immortal with his prolonged lifespan.

Doton - Domu 土遁・土矛 (B ranked)
A highly generic/all-purpose jutsu that makes use of the chakra flowing all over the body to harden the skin in order to maximise defence and increase damage in physical offense. While its weakness is that the hardened parts of the body could not move, with the exception of Raiton (Lightning attacks), Domu is a technique that is unbreakable by everything else.

Fuuton - Atsugai 風遁。圧害 (B ranked)
One of Kakuzu's hearts releases a tremendous "Fuuton Ninjutsu" (Wind type ninjutsu). Once the high density and pressured tornado hits its target, the wind pressure can blow everything away. A person who masters the Seishitsu Henka of the Wind element can cause a massive whirlwind that smashes up the surroundings, causing massive damage and casualties.

Raiton - Gi-an 雷遁・偽暗 (B ranked)
Kakuzu has a grotesque form in his body that holds the Raiton jutsu. It releases lightning that takes on a shape of a very sharp spear and pierces through the enemies. It is so sharp that it can even pierce through rocks and is an ability that deals out excruciatingly heavy damage.
Quote:
I'm too lazy to decipher them in the past and even now, but I've finally read it today.

First of all, Seishitsu Henka 性質変化 (manipulation of (chakra) elements)
Seishitsu Henka is when chakra is added to elements like fire or wind to create a more powerful effect. Though individual talent is needed to master this, most people are able to master one such element easily. Among the jounins, many are able to master at least two elements.

Fire: Burns everything it touches, a high temperature chakra that is like fire. Can burn objects and like the wind element, it is a specialised offensive type of chakra.

Wind: A chakra that cuts through everything like a blade. When used on special ninja weapons or deployed in jutsu, it is best for short to middle distance offensive attacks.

Lightning: Easy to spread out and suitable for jutsu that are middle to long distance in offense. When used with metal based weapons, the effects get multiplied!

Earth: Has the ability to change the hardness and composition of all objects. A person who masters this element can make an object to be as solid as metal or soft as clay in his jutsu.

Water: It is very compatible the diverse "Form Modification". Whether it is in the form of a fog for masking your form or to trap someone in a tsunami, its auxilliary capability is very high.

Keitai Henka (形態変化) (manipulation of shape/form)
Keitai Henka manipulates the chakra form itself to create the "shape" of the ninjutsu and controls the power and area effect of the chakra. While Seishitsu Henka emphasizes and brings out the form of the chakra's elements, this particular technique is largely dependent on the user's conceptualizations, the skill's system, method of mastering it, etc. Many of the skills now are the results of the achievements of the earlier users.
Quote:
Fat Pain's absorption ability is classified as a sealing technique that is not ranked. It's something like reversing the chakra flow from one's body and absorbing the chakra thrown by the opponent. In this way, the chakra is neutralised in a bottomless pit in his body and digested. And this regardless of the opponent's chakra element type. All gone, period.

Hanzou: Rode on his summoned salamander to battle, peerless ninja. Bestowed the title of Sannin to Oro, Jiraiya and Tsunade, making them well-known across the countries. Wore a special mask that aided him to move freely in water. His movement is unsurpassable in water.
Quote:
Oh yeah, information on Suigetsu...

"Village of the Bloody Mist" refers to the Hidden Village of Mist, feared for its extreme customary practice. 16 years ago, a child prodigy was born in this village. This is the younger of the Houzuki brothers - Suigetsu. Having the powers unique to his clan and reputed to be the "reincarnation of the Kijin" (refers to Zabuza), Suigetsu, together with his brother Mangetsu, dreamt to inherit the title of Shinobi Gatana (ninja swords) and this acted as their motivation to finish cruel missions day by day... Then this dream shattered with the death of his brother, and Suigetsu changed his ambition to "collecting all the swords". With the humiliation of being captured by Orochimaru, his ambition could not be fulfilled. Now that he is freed from his water prison, Suigetsu can once again walk towards his goal.
There will be more, but I will be off for a day or two. I will continue posting when I am able.

Re: Databook 3

Ok, I am back.
New info:

Quote:
Alright, the smiley Pain.

He can modify his body to make his wrist detachable and shot out like a missile. Chakra is focused at the joint to create a small explosion that propels the wrist/hand in a straight line towards the target. Its destructive power is strong enough to destroy a rock plate(?) easily. Chakra will protect the hand from getting hurt. Chakra at the joint can act like a magnet to attract and re-attach the hand.
More about Pain:

Quote:
Pain Page 2

Text Lead:
Countless mysteries maintain the "undefeated" status of this god...

Entry 1:
Rinnegan

Text Body:
The "Rinnegan", the doujutsu (eye technique) said to have been the origin of ninjutsu. Presently, not even a portion of the abilities generated through this most supreme of doujutsu, possesed by Pain, is certain. What is obvious, however, is that the Rinnegan serves as a great hint in identifying who or what Pain truly is. In the past, one of the Sannin, Jiraiya, raised and mentored a young boy named Nagato; the reason being that this boy too was in possession of the Rinnegan. Currently, it is not reasonable to assume that he and Pain are indeed one in the same. Still, judging from Pain's conversation with Jiraiya, and given that Konan is by Pain's side, at the absolute least it is certain that there is some form of connection between Nagato and Pain.

Caption Pointing Nagato:
Nagato is reported to have wielded all five basic [chakra] elements. Is this the power of the Rinnegan...?

Nagato Pane Text:
Gifted with the capacity to become versed in all major ninjutsu... at only ten years of age he mastered countless jutsu of all kinds

Caption Pointing Pain:
One of the animals summoned by Pain. A common feature is to be noted between the eyes of Pain and his summons. Specifically, all of their eyes exhibit the same pattern of concentric circles.

Entry 2:
Pain Rikudou (The Sex Paths of Pain)

Text Body:
That which was summoned by Pain was Pain Rikudou, five additional shinobi, each with their own Rinnegan. Not only do the six of them possess unique and fearsome abilities such as "jutsu negation" and "body alteration*", but they also all share eyesight with one another. It is unclear whether or not this awesome power is the product of the Rinnegan.

(*based on the scans of the abilities available - more specifically, based on their text - it looks like this is the Pain "rocket punch", or as its known in the databook, "kaiwan no hiya", lit. "strong-arm flaming arrow")

Pain Page 3

Entry 3:
Immortality

Text Body:
Make use of what jutsu you may, a god cannot be killed. "Immortal", and thus "undefeated"... The lone Pain that was dragged into [Jiraiya's] barrier space did cease to be active, but whether this means he "died" or not remains uncertain.

Caption Jiraiya Surprise:
Jiraiya was absolutely certain he had ended their lives... yet Pain Rikudou came back to life, attacking him from behind.

Pane Text:
If I remember right, it was you who taught me not to let my guard down... Jiraiya-sensei.

Entry 4:
Previous Identities

Text Body:
One of the answers Jiraiya arrived at was the revelation that, beginning with Yahiko, a previous pupil of his own, all six bodies of Pain Rikudou held a resemblance to shinobi he had previously encountered. Through what twist of fate did they become Pain Rikudou... And why do they all have the Rinnegan.

Caption Shinobi Faces:
The previous identities of Pain Rikudou, as identified by Jiraiya. Among them is the face of Fuuma Ichizoku clan member, matching the rumors of the Amagakure shinobi.

Entry 5:
Weapons

Text:
Shared among Pain Rikudou are long black strips, serving as swords. The chakra of any individual pierced by this weapon is disrupted, a property not seen in any of the vast number of ninja weapons known to exist.

Caption Blade:
Extending from the arm of this cloak is Pain's weapon.

Caption Jiraiya:
Jiraiya after having been pierced by the weapon!! Along with a deep chill, he feels the presence of the Rinnegan gaze in his mind, and reels in fear!!
Quote:
Parts of Minato's profile as translated by Nehanshouja

Wants to Fight: Jiraiya.

Favorite Food: Kushina's Cooking.

Least Favorite Food: Nothing in particular.

Favorite Saying: I can't make out the kanji after the "no" in the sentence, but I'm assuming that the whole thing is "will of fire" (hi no blank) and it's something like "The village shines with the will of fire." (hi no blank wa sato wo terasu.)

Hobby: The kanji's blurry, but I'm pretty sure it says "Reading" and in parentheses: "Jiraiya's novels are his especial favorite."

Re: Databook 3

about Kabuto,some interesting things,translation by Nehanshouja:


Kabuto's profile page has the same problem most of them have in regards to translation: the kanji is too small and/or blurry to make out the radicals correctly, but I can tell you that his profile data is exactly the same from the first two books, except for two small things: he's gotten slightly taller and his "Wants to Fight" section is no longer "Uchiha Sasuke and Uzumaki Naruto"--it's now Orochimaru and Uzumaki Naruto.

Also, the top sentence reads: "Serving the wicked, forcibly possesed by the snake (interesting note: the verb conjugation used for "possess" is the one used when describing something you were forced to do or made to do, something you would have rather not done, emphasis mine. Make of that what you will) he's the manipulative shadow!!
It also says that Fat Pain can absorb ANYTHING:

"By reversing the chakra circulation in his body Pain is able to absorb the jutsu that are sent towards him. He then disperses the chakra he absorbed and swallows his power like a bottomless swamp."
The caption says that it's possible to absorb any jutsu, regardless of its element.

Quote:
Q3. Are there any further information about Elements, Kekkei Genkai, Light/Dark and such?

No further info about Kekkei Genkai and Light/Dark (I don't really know what is meant by Light/Dark though...). There are 4 pages about chakra's seishitsu henka (element/quality modification) and keitai henka (shape modification), but I'm kind of tired to translate them now.. If somebody feels like doing the work, then I'll gladly pass. Otherwise, I might try my hands at that when I'm less sleepy...


Q4. Info on the specific puppets used by Sasori other than Sandaime Kazekage.

Hmm no actually it doesn't say much. Sasori's page has info about Hiruko, Sandaime Kazekage and the "mother and father" puppets, but it has no specific info on other puppets of his or names.


Q5. Info about the people seen during Gaara's revival or the giant kitty appearing in the same panel.

I don't remember the giant Kitty and there's no info about him XD;;;
The guide contains information for 3 people who rejoiced during Gaara's revival.
The first is a 16 years old genin called Ittetsu. His profile says: "A gening of the Sand village who admires the Kazekage from the depth of his heart. When the latter came back to life he was relieved and cried tears of joy."
The second one is a 15 years old genin called Sari. "A kunoichi of the Sand village. She loves the Kazekage more than anyone else, admires him and is ready to risk her life to save him."
The third one is a 17 years old genin called Matsuri. "A kunoichi of the Sand village who is friends with Sari. She loves élites and admires the Kazekage; she would take into consideration no other man."


Q6. Info about Susanoo.

It's two pages long, but I'll make the effort of translating it for you..

""Amaterasu", representing "the material world and light" and "Tsukuyomi", symbolizing "the spiritual world and darkness", are two jutsu that can only be used by the ones who awakened the "Mangekyou Sharingan", the almighty eyes that can see through anything. The power of the violent god resides in the ones who are able control both jutsu: that is Susanoo. The chakra becomes tangible and takes the shape of the great, strong belligerent god. His fighting spirit doesn't abate until he has destroyed all the enemies before him.
Susanoo possesses a flawless offense and defense thanks to the "incorporeal tools" he holds in both of his hands. The "Sword of Totsuka" in his right hand cuts down any opponent, while the "Mirror of Yata" in his left hand rejects any attack. Material, incorporeal, ninjutsu, physical attacks: all these have no meaning in front of the god."

Captions:
"The Mangekyou Sharingan is feared as the strongest doujutsu, but only some of its possessors can reach this further godlike state. This jutsu works both as the user's guardian deity and as something that consumes his life." (Hmm, just reading the manga it wasn't clear that Susanoo also ate at the user's health.. This makes even more evident why Itachi died soon after using it, I guess; ndt)
"The sake coming out of the gourd takes the shape of a sword, the Sword of Totsuka. The spirits absorbed by the sword also get sealed inside of the gourd."
"Totsuka no Tsurugi (Sword of Totsuka) - It's like a Sword of Kusanagi enhanced with the power to send the people it stabs to a world of illusions similar to the dream of a drunken person and seal them for eternity. It has a built-in sealing jutsu."
"Yata no Kagami (Sword of Yata) - An incorporeal shield. It possesses all the chakra qualities (elements) and is able to render any attack vain by changing its own quality accordingly."


Q7. Info about Kabuto and Kakuzu.

For time and tiredness purposes, I won't be entering into details. I haven't seen their translated profiles around, so I'll just translate those. I think someone posted some info about Kakuzu's life, but I'm not sure.. Anyway, too many pages XD;;;

Q2. Does the databook confirm Madara's story about the clan? I mean that Sasuke 's father was planning a coup?
Hmm well.. in Itachi's page it doesn't say anything about a "coup d'etat", it only says that the upper levels of Konoha suspected the Uchiha to have caused the Kyuubi's attack, and eventually years later Itachi was sent to exterminate them. The "Uchiha clan" page says that Itachi informed the upper levels of the Uchiha clan's planned coup d'etat. Anyway, from tidbits here and there it *does* look like Madara's story is correct, but I guess we should translate everything and only trust what's actually written.. You never know.. XD; *tends to distrust Madara*

Q3. Shipping stuff - Sakura and Hinata's feelings towards Naruto, and Sakura's towards Sasuke

First of all, there is a relationship chart in which Karin and Sakura's arrows towards Sasuke say "in love with" (好き), Hinata's arrow towards Naruto says "admires/thinks of him as a role model" (憧れ) and Sakura's arrow towards Naruto says "is worried about him" (身を案じる). Naruto and Sasuke have no arrows towards them, so that's unknown.
However, I wouldn't take those arrows too literally. If Hinata's blushing and all is "admiration", then Sakura's "is worried about him" might be something more too. It doesn't really look to me like she's still in love with Sasuke, but anyway, there are no actual proof of their love for anybody, so that cannot be deemed as certain yet.

Anyway... I read Sakura's entry. It has no "Sasuke" sections, but it does have a "Naruto" section. Which I'll translate for your pleasure XD

From Sakura's chara page, "Naruto" section:
"Since when she was a child Sakura had always felt admiration and a feeling similar to love for Sasuke. Naruto was just an "annoying" boy who stood in the middle between Sakura and Sasuke and disturbed their relationship. But after completing many missions together with him, she looked back at the past and finally realized: when she was in trouble, when she was ready to give up on her life, the one who was always there, protecting her and encouraging her, was in fact that "annoying" boy, Naruto. What are her current feelings for Naruto...? Sakura still hasn't found an answer."

Welllllll..... XD;; I don't know, I kind of appreciate the pairing so I might be biased, but I think this is pretty obvious... (and YES, I assure you the translation is correct and unbiased ).

By the way, as for Sasuke and Sakura, there's only a "Promise" section that talks about her resolve to bring back Sasuke, to prevent her friends to be hurt again and such. Hmm yeah, there's not really much about Sasuke in her profile, despite the "suki" in the relationship chart XD;; I think the relationship chart kind of, uhm, only shows the characters' conscious feelings towards each other..

Hinata only has one page so it has no sections. It says about Naruto that he was the one who was able to change her and encourage her, that she admires him very much and it's thanks to him if she's the girl we now know. There's a panel of the scene when she sees Naruto for the first time after three years and the caption says "Ironically, right before Naruto, the one who changed her, Hinata's timidity still peaks." This is the only thing I can do for you NaruHina fans out there XD;;;

Q4. Hidan and Orochimaru's "deaths".

As for Hidan, it does seem from the info written in the book that his immortality depends on him continuing to kill people.. So uhm, I guess he might be actually dead?

As for Orochimaru, it says that he was sealed by the Sword of Totsuka and now what is left of him is a faint presence inside of Kabuto. The caption leaves us wondering whether Kabuto will succeed in overpowering Orochimaru's cells inside of him or not. So yeah, I wouldn't consider Orochimaru "dead".. His attachment to life is really really strong, I don't think Kabuto's willpower will be able to overpower him...

Hiruzen is the name of a volcano and a plateau in the Okayama prefecture in Japan. Since Kishimoto is from Okayama, I guess it might be connected XD
I'll take care of the details later, I am in a hurry!

The genius of Hyuuga leaps ahead, with neither cloud nor mist obscuring his keen eyes!


- His easy use of the Byakugan clearly stems from his excellent analysis and judgement skills.
- The basis of his strength lies in his ability to see precise chakra flow and his unrivalled tenketsu-hitting taijutsu.
- Through hard work and study along with his natural gifts, nothing can elude Neji's vision!
- The calm, rational Neji. The hot-blooded, zealous Lee. Could there be a more well-known team?


Even among the Hyuuga, the clan styling themselves as the "strongest clan in Konoha", Neji's ability surpasses all other Hyuuga. He believed himself to be cursed as a member of the branch family, and held a great loathing for the main family and the village in general. However, his peers in his family and village have melted his heart of ice, and now he fights for his village and his friends. He now stands as a true Konoha ninja, and rose rapidly to the rank of jounin. He has now even surpassed his clan and with his prodigious ability, he is now highly respected among the youth of Konoha.

She dances a deadly dance with innumerable blades flying through the air around her!

- Her speciality is a two-stage attack using exploding tags. She now uses more weapons than ever before.
- She uses her weapons to hold off her enemies, then works in perfect sychronisation with Lee and Neji to corner them.
- One of her most important roles in the team is to keep Gai and Lee focused, because who knows where they'd end up if they're not concentrating.

She polishes and sharpens her weapons every day to be as sharp and deadly as possible, and it shows. Even Akatsuki were caught off-guard by the variety of weapons that Tenten brought into battle! But that's not all Tenten does. Her calm demeanour and focus guide the team through their missions, and when it's battle time, her long-range attacks allow her team to take the initiative. If Tenten weren't there, none of her other team members would be able to use their own ability to the fullest. For Team Gai, where each individual member is already extremely strong, Tenten is the vital element that cements them together.

The great green beast gallops to great heights, with a heart and fists inherited from his master!

- Team Gai is definitely a taijutsu team. With carefully-controlled breathing, they work together flawlessly to deliver a range of attacks, cornering Kisame.
- Lee tries to learn all of Gai's techniques. Even while on missions, his training never ends.
- He works towards reaching and possibly surpassing his master. But when it comes to vigour and eagerness, he even surpasses Gai! When the two of them are together, the word "impossible" just doesn't exist any more!

For someone like Lee, who was dismissed as utterly talentless, taijutsu was his one ray of light. He has always and will always respect Gai as the main who showed him the light at the end of the tunnel and guided him along his path, and maintains his insatiable urge to keep working at improving himself. The spirit of hard work he inheried from his master is a part of him forever, which was demonstrated splendidly in the surprise attack against Hoshigaki Kisame. He has been though terrible training, experienced fierce setbacks, and is now at the stage where he could be considerd a master, however Lee's training will never end. He remains stoic in his never-ending drive to train himself and develop himself!

With hot-blooded zeal pulsing through his veins, his fists are like swallows taking flight!

- He dodges like a flash, then wields his body like a weapon to smash against his opponent!
- A master of hand-to-hand combat, Gai is also highly proficient with weapons. But he prefers to use bladeless weapons.
- Gai looks nowhere but forwards. Since he never looks back, maybe his memory's been slightly affected...

A body tempered like steel, and taijutsu that can shatter boulders... But neither of those are the true source of Gai's strength. Rather, it is his constant eye forward, his unending desire to work to reach new heights. This is what made him a taijutsu user able to stand toe to toe with an Akatsuki member. Gai focuses everything on improving himself, and will willingly put his life on the line. Gai's way of life has been passed on to his students, who don't just think of their own needs, but of the needs of their entire team. Becoming highly proficient on their own, then using teamwork to reach even greater heights... Gai's teachings of the vigour of youth now show brilliant results!

Sidebar, 1st page: Serving the wicked, forcibly manipulated by the snake, he's the manipulative shadow!

Knowing neither family nor country, he spent his childhood in the role of a spy...because of this, for Kabuto, the concept of good and evil has no particular meaning. Serving power or possibly opposing power...The scent of darkness and death clings to his journey as he searches for "himself", only to confront overwhelming power.

Sidebar, 2nd page: At the end of his wanderings, he drifts---that is humanity opposing the way of the snake.

"Double Spy" (Probably "double agent" would be a better translation, but the katakana literally reads "spy", so you could go either way)

For all that Kabuto was known as Orochimaru's faithful subordinate, he was originally sent in by Sasori of "Akatsuki" for the purpose of sounding out Orochimaru's movements. However, as his self had been erased from crossing over the world, in the eternal life-seeking Orochimaru he finds a wicked light...!! And when that light was born shining, he saw his own shadow: Kabuto also found his own existance. In that moment, for the first time, Kabuto recognized himself.

Caption: He has a purpose from when he decided to serve Orochimaru. Something about him has changed.

"Orochimaru"

In serving Orochimaru, he obtained confidence by having "someone" defined for him. For Kabuto, Orochimaru's defeat meant that his self disappeared as well. Because of this, Kabuto took Orochimaru, the "symbol of rebirth", into his own body. The wicked surge that pushed up from within, along with the corporal stimulus that accompanied it, gave the real "true feelings of life" to Kabuto...!!

Itachi Uchiha
- (no rank, ndt)

How much can you see with your Sharingan?

Ninja registration number: 012110
Birthday: 6/9 (21 years old, Gemini)
Height: 178.0cm - Weight: 58.0kg - Blood type: AB
Personality: cares for his brother, self-sacrificing
Favorite food: omusubi (konbu) (edible kelp, ndt), cabbage
Food he dislikes: steak
Person he would like to fight: Sasuke Uchiha
Favorite word: peace
Hobby: visiting shops where you can eat sweets

Graduated from Academy at: 7 years old
Became chuunin at: 10 years old
Mission history: 53 D-rank, 152 C-rank, 134 B-rank, 0 A-rank, 1 S-rank

He sees everything with his scarlet eyes, and hiding his true dream he acts in a play in which truth and lies are mixed together....

"As expected from my son"—His father, head of the military police unit of the village, was always proud of his son. "You're so distant..."—His younger brother loved him and admired him, though at the same time he couldn't repress the jealousy welling up in him. Everybody was envious of his outstanding genius, yet that talent actually proved to be a very cruel burden.... Because of his skills, he was chosen by both the village and his clan to work as a spy. He was also extremely intelligent, so he could take a broader view of the situation, and this eventually brought him to drench his hands in blood to the point of committing a most terrible sin, thus marking the end of the clan's history. He is undoubtedly a hero, yet he never achieved fame and renown. He was too gentle to be a shinobi, and it is indeed an irony that his gentleness was the reason why he had to live his life as a ninja.

He awakened the Sharingan when he was 8 years old. It is hard to conceive how much grief has been reflected in those eyes...

In addition to the obvious doujutsu and genjutsu powered by the Sharingan, he is also very skilled in taijutsu and ninjutsu.

(balloons: "...All people live relying on their knowledge and understanding, and so are bound to them. They call it "reality".")
His view of life and death comes from the long and harsh path he had to walk.

{page 036-037}
Everything he did was for the village and his brother... The truth about that tragic event is revealed.

A thorny path amidst the strife
The origin of Itachi's suffering dates back to the time when Konoha was founded. More precisely, to the dispute between the "Senju clan", which produced the Shodai Hokage, and the "Uchiha clan" led by Madara. Not even the unification of the village could mend the crack between the two sides. The village, afraid that the Uchiha might raise a rebellion, ordered Itachi to secretly investigate the clan. Meanwhile, the Uchiha sensed the government's suspicions and had Itachi spy on them. The two parties' views on justice and pride were completely incompatible, and the heart of a young shinobi was torn between them...

(balloons: "But that... was actually the opposite. Itachi leaked information about the Uchiha to the village. He was what one would commonly call a "double agent".")
Village and clan. Reason and emotion. To work for a greater cause or to save one's honor. Itachi was tormented by many contradicting beliefs...

Suspicion leads to the Uchiha's rebellion
At the beginning it was just a feeling of dislike. But then, be it casual or inevitable, a "natural calamity" called "Kyuubi" attacked the village. Many of the inhabitants believed that it was actually a "man-made disaster" provoked by the Uchiha, and eventually their suspicions turned into reality...

(balloons: "The Uchiha clan schemed a coup d'état to take over the village...")
The Uchiha conspired against the village that had doubted and persecuted them: they schemed to take over sovereignty. Fugaku, Itachi and Sasuke's father, led the coup.

A nightmare born from love....
The village or his blood ties—Itachi, who desired peace more than anyone else, was confronted with the worst of choices....!! To bring peace to the village—no, to the world, Itachi carried out the slaughter of his clan. The only person he could not bring himself to kill was his little brother. In fact, not only he let Sasuke live, he also made him believe that he himself was the traitor. He took both the hidden ambition of his clan and the groundless distrust held by the village and carved them into his forehead protector, forming the shape of the "nukenin" mark; then he left the village, alone. It was all for the sake of keeping their sins and evil away from Sasuke's eyes. He shouldered "reality" alone and left the fictitious image of a noble clan behind for his brother to see...

(balloons: "Live a shameful life...... Run... Run... And cling to life.")
(balloons: "...he avenged the slaughter of the Uchiha clan. And he made you a hero in the eyes of Konoha.")
He induced Sasuke to hate him to make him into a hero.

Even in the dark society he still felt nostalgia
Itachi entered Akatsuki, which posed a threat to Konoha, because by doing so he could watch it from inside. Even when he was wrapped in a jet-black cloak and despised as the embodiment of evil, his heart was still filled with thoughts of the village and his brother.

(balloons: "The reason is that he wanted to warn Danzou and the rest of the government that he was still alive.")
He investigated the situation of the village as an "enemy", and despite being hated he still prayed for its stability more than anything else.

{page 038-039}
Hiding the truth about the fight behind his back, he breathes his last as a nukenin.

I'm sorry, Sasuke...
...There won't be a next time.

[As "Akatsuki"]
To keep the act he put on for Sasuke believable, Itachi had to leave the village and to play the part of the villain by targeting Naruto, thus he complies with Akatsuki's missions. That is his present reality....

(balloons: "It's been a long time... Kakashi-san, Naruto-kun.")
He deceives Akatsuki by persistently chasing after Naruto and at the same time he keeps an eye on the attitude of the village.

[The pledge of the brothers]
What to Sasuke is the abruptly arrived "day of revenge", to Itachi is the promised day he had foretold on that tragic night. That night he lost his dreams and his future... Now Itachi has entrusted everything to Sasuke and is able to bid farewell to him with a smile on his face.

(balloons: "You are my spare!!")
Itachi provokes Sasuke with genjutsu. But even that is an illusion.

(balloons: "*pant pant*")
His fingers apparently reach out to gouge out Sasuke's eyes, but they actually tap him lightly between the eyebrows, like he used to do in the past.

Realizing his mission and feeling his death approaching, he leaves the light of his dreams to the next generation....

[Finishing touches]
Sasuke was so caught up in the darkness of revenge that he had resorted to a wicked power. Perhaps Itachi realized that his last mission is to free his brother from the evil that restrains him... He pushes him to his limits, so that he can dig out the snake and seal it eternally with the incorporeal "Sword of Totsuka". At last, he puts an end to Orochimaru's relentless obsession with the Uchiha's body.

(balloons: "...So you did have something else...")
(balloons: "Eh?")
Orochimaru is defeated by the sword he himself had looked for.

[Naruto]
While carrying out his task as a member of Akatsuki, Itachi became certain of one thing: Naruto would be able to save Sasuke, as well as the village. This is why he entrusts his feelings to him, together with a great hope...

(balloons: "...I'll say it one more time. I just want to talk with you.")
What kind of future could Itachi's eyes see in Naruto?

[Mangekyou Sharingan]
Itachi sacrificed himself, and by having his brother witness his death with his own eyes he left him the "Mangekyou Sharingan". "I will always exist with you"—Itachi arranged everything so that even after dying he could still protect Sasuke.

What future is reflected in the heavenly eyes Itachi left him? Hope? Or else...

Unstoppable power and fury! Juugo is the source of the cursed seal!

- Juugo's murderous attack. The black curse changing his very form is a darkness that even he himself fears.
- Juugo's sociopathic alter ego appears against his will, and with it comes the guilt of the deaths it has caused. This constantly beats against his conscience, isolating him from the world.
- The regular Juugo enjoys all the fruits of nature, which makes his alter ego's acts weigh on him all the more.

Juugo's personality is usually quiet and unassuming, but when angered, no human is safe from him... This has caused a fearful village to label him as the "Scales", where anything could tip the balance. Juugo saw himself as a cursed being, and shut himself away in a cave from everyone. The one who found him and saved him was Kimimaro, who was himself the last remnant of his own Kaguya clan. Following Kimimaro, Juugo allowed himself to be one of Orochimaru's test subjects. And so, the cursed seal was created. But as time passed, Kimimaro died, then Orochimaru followed him... Juugo shut himself away once more. But then a light appeared, the one that Kimimaro had given hs life for...Sasuke. Juugo then emerged from his cave to test Sasuke's power.

Continue reading, there is moar.

This prodigy fights coldly and fearlessly to inherit the legacy of the Seven Swordsmen.

- Suigetsu freely swings about his great sword. He used to always spar with Jugo, and when he meets him again, the old sparks soon fly!
- The sword that stood as the signet of the demon Zabuza is now carving out a new legend at the side of the prodigy, Suigetsu.
- Suigetsu detests being reined in under someone else's umbrella. His bold atitude shows his extreme arrogance.

The Hidden Mist Village is well-known and feared as the "Village of Bloody Mist:, due to its extremely violent teaching methods. And 16 years ago, that vilage produced a prodigy: the second son of the Hoozuki clan, Suigetsu. With abilities peculiar to his clan and his brother Mangetsu's cruel nature, Suigetsu was known as the "second coming of the demon".
Along with his brother, he dreamed of one day owning one of the great shinobi swords as they travelled together on dangerous missions. And then the day his brother died with his dream only half-realised, Suigetsu pledged to get his hands on *all* of the swords. And even after the humiliation of being captured by Orochimaru, that dream never ended. And now that Suigetsu is free, he is once again focused in the pursuit of that dream.

The dark side of Konoha, supporting the tree from deep within its roots!

- The leader of the Roots makes his appearance, coinciding with Naruto's return. There is considerable tension between him and the current Hokage, granddaughter of the First and keeper of the old ways.
- These shinobi represent the way of the Roots. They are the dark side of Konoha, and act as Danzou's concealed weapons.
- Seen as the "hawk" of Konoha. In his mind's eye he sees a future of his owndesign...

Long ago, Danzou opposed Sarutobi Hiruzen in the running for the position of Hokage. His idea of a ninja is "one who sacrifices his own will completely for the wishes of his country and his village". Due to that outlook, he lost his chance at the position. Following this, he created his own personal group within the Hokage-controlled Anbu, called the Roots. He raised shinobi to conform to his will, establishing a grip on the "darkness" of Konoha. Now that the Third Hokage has died, it remains to be seen what path the Roots will take.


*Danzou has to be awkward by choosing foods peculiar to Japan.
- Hijiki: A brown seaweed that only grows around Japan's end of the Pacific.
- Genmaicha: A tea made from blending Japanese green tea and roasted brown rice.
- Warabimochi: A sweet especially popular in the Kansai region. It is made with bracken and ends up translucent, cool and sprinkled with soybean flour. This is not real mochi, but is named as such because the consistency is very similar.

Deidara

Art is a bang!

Page 105:
Main title: The artist who strives to attain instances of flawless art.

Picture Caption: This genius was the one who invented a form of art that can fly.

Top block of text: Deidara – the artist who uses his [hands] to make clay models that can explode. To him, true beauty is the instance of an explosion; it is the [pinnacle of art] to strive for. Hailing from the Hidden Rock Village (Iwagakure), Deidara was often highly praised and greatly admired as a clay artist. Even so, Deidara had a great desire to take his art to even greater heights. Hence, he worked hard to hone his art by practicing and producing more artworks.

Middle block of text: Before long, Deidara had an immense thirst to learn a form of art which was prohibited in his village. It is a form of [Art that requires the kneading of chakra into clay].He broke the law and attained the means of creating that form of art. He then made an explosion with his “exploding clay”. At last, he can finally create the kind of [Art] that he had longed for. (Further explanation for clarity: Exploding clay is formed by infusing Chakra and clay together. In order to do that, Deidara needed to perform a forbidden jutsu on himself to get those additional mouths, which can infuse chakra together with clay. The jutsu probably gives him the ability to mix Chakra and clay together in his own mouth (the one on his face) too. So yeah, Deidara performed the forbidden jutsu on himself, and then attained the ability to create exploding clay, which made it possible for him to create explosions through his clay creations.)

Lowest block of text: This is Deidara’s own definition of [Art]. Also, ever since his early days as an artist, it is in Deidara’s nature to be impulsive; impulse governs his behavior. (i.e. he often acts on impulse, doesn’t usually plan ahead. E.g. He didn’t really plan out how he was going to fight Gaara. This also means that he often improvises on the spot.)

Title: The artist who lost his pride before Itachi
Picture caption: Itachi’s appearance, this surely is true art…
Text: “Exploding clay” user Deidara was forced to experience bitterness for the first time when he fought against…Uchiha Itachi. Up until that day, those who had witnessed his art were either afraid by it, awed by it, despaired by it, or cried at the sight of it. His art is suppose to be perfect…but the Sharingan came along and challenged it. The Sharingan manipulated Deidara’s mind and made him feel fascinated by another form of art, which is something he would never do under normal circumstances.

Picture caption on top: Those red eyes that can see through everything pierced through Deidara’s defeated mind.

Picture caption below: Seeing his flawless art getting beaten before his very own eyes, Deidara blew up in anger. (pun not intended)

Text on top: “Envy” and “humiliation”, feelings that Deidara had never felt before, were firmly planted in him after he experienced Itachi’s Sharingan. Soon after, these feelings turned into burning hatred, which greatly impacted Deidara’s way of thinking…

Text below: He vowed to break the curse of the Sharingan through his Art, with his trump card being his left eye, concealed under his eye-scope. Since then, Deidara has been waiting for a good opportunity to get his revenge.

Title: Analysis
Picture caption: (picture is from here) Deidara assesses the enemy right from the moment that they meet. He observes the enemy calmly and is very objective in his judgment.

Text: Carving, painting, molding…there are many ways to create art. Likewise, Deidara has several methods of creating his Art. At the start of every battle, Deidara immediately analyzes the surrounding environment and his opponent’s fighting style. This is crucial for Deidara in selecting the right method to attack. Deidara is tenaciously devoted to his Art. He likes tough and challenging battles, because they give him good opportunities show the beauty of his Art.

Title: Setsuteingu (I seriously don’t know what this is maybe it has something to do with ambushing)

Picture caption: Preparing the stage is his junior’s(i.e. Tobi’s) duty, while Deidara himself takes to the skies to show his Art!!

Text: When it comes to ambush attacks, a very delicate set up is required. If done right, it can take the beauty of art to a higher level. Deidara definitely spares no effort when it comes to ambushing. Sometimes he hides clay bombs underground, sometimes he takes to the skies, sometimes he cooperates with a partner…in all instances, he carries out thorough and careful Setsuteingu.

Bottom Text: Moreover, attacking from both the sky and the ground will corner the opponent little by little. This way, Deidara’s explosions will definitely lead him to a flawless victory.

Title: View on Art

Topmost Picture Caption: Deidara respects fellow artists. He thinks that collaborating with other artists will bring fresh impetus to his art. (i.e. He thinks that by cooperating with fellow artists, they can take art to greater heights)

Middle Picture Caption:The journey to attaining true art was a struggle for Deidara. Those who challenged Deidara’s definition of art were of no match for him. (My elaboration: Deidara had to go through a lot of trouble to be able to finally create exploding clay. As mentioned earlier, he broke several laws in Rock village by attaining and performing a forbidden jutsu to get his additional mouths. The picture above is Deidara, slightly before fighting Itachi. It means that prior to his fight with Itachi, all of Deidara’s previous opponents, mainly those who challenged his definition of art, were of no match to him.)

Bottom Picture Captioneidara has an unwavering determination with regard to his Art. Repeated repudiations of his art made him erupt with rage. (i.e. the fact that Sasuke overcame all of Deidara’s art made him so angry that he lost his sanity.)

Text: Deidara bases his actions on his view of art. Deidara believes that [one’s own work is the best]. He decided to stay in Akatsuki because the organization shares this mantra too. (My elaboration: Dei thinks that being in Akatsuki gives him more freedom than staying in Iwagakure. As in the organization wouldn’t force him to learn a new technique, or force him to discard an old one. The organization believes in giving its members the freedom to hone their own skills.)

Text: Each member of Akatsuki has their own unique talents. For Deidara, his unique talent is his flawless art. Furthermore, Akatsuki’s goal of collecting Bijuu gives Deidara more opportunities to fight strong opponents. The reward of gaining more battle experience also served as a great impetus for Deidara to stay in Akatsuki. Deidara is proud to be in the “artist group” of Akatsuki.

Title: Ultimate Art

Picture Caption: He bravely spread open both hands to show his [Ultimate Art]; true perfection.

Text: The “Sharingan”, which is unique to the “Uchiha” clan, disregarded Deidara’s art. Seeing his art being disregarded like that shattered Deidara’s heart to pieces. He felt that his reputation had just been dealt with a strong blow. Being the proud artist that he was, he would never admit defeat to the Sharingan. His final move was an act of impulse. He was determined to prove that his art was superior to the Sharingan. Now, having changed into the [Incarnation of Art], when Deidara looked back and evaluated the significance of his life, he realized that there was nothing. On the other hand, to be sublimed into a flash of light was like holding one’s own works in his arms, and being admired and praised by everyone. (Me: At least we know that he died somewhat happy…)

Text: That is because when everyone sees a tall tower of light against the sky, the horror that they feel will be forever be engraved in their minds.

Secret Ninjutsu: Exploding Clay
Rank not indicated
Type: all (offense, defence, complementary, short, mid and long range)
User: Deidara

Main title: The joy of destroying enemies by explosions! Perfect art is the interweaving of molding and destroying pretty clay models.

Top Picture caption: Deidara has a mouth on both his right and left hands. He usually uses his left hand mouth though. (Me: Does this mean that he is left handed??)

Bottom Picture Caption: Deidara can control when to set off the explosion.

Text: Art – is when an object gets sublimated in an instant…it is a “bang”! The combination of that view with Ninjutsu gives birth to “exploding clay”. Deidara has several mouths (the word used means several and plural. We know that he has 4 mouths from the manga) that chew and mix his chakra together with his clay to create exploding clay. Deidara uses the exploding clay to create a variety of models. He then yells “Katsu” to create a gigantic explosion from these clay objects. The clay models make attacking on land, sea and air possible because Deidara can direct them like a remote control by using his Chakra. The destructiveness of Deidara’s exploding clay is dependent on the level of chakra that was mixed into the clay. (C1 to C4 refer to the levels of chakra that Deidara uses to infuse with his clay)

Page 245
Main Title: Destructiveness of “exploding clay” varies in accordance to the level of Chakra used!!

C1
The explosive power of this type of exploding clay is small. Hence, it is chiefly used in covert actions such as surprise attacks. The design of the bombs tends to take the shape of a beetle. (Me: I always thought that they were spiders…)

C2
Deidara rides on the back of a huge dragon made from exploding clay. The target is pursued with guided missiles, which are vomited out from the dragon’s mouth. Cooperation with a partner, who will set up land mines beforehand, will allow this move to leave a maximum impact.

C3
Picture caption: Deidara boasted that the explosive power of the C3 was so formidable that he managed to annihilate his hometown by it. (里 means hometown and village. I am more inclined to believing that it refers to hometown here. I will check this out again once I get the Chinese databook. Or hopefully someone else who is better in Japanese can translate this bit for us).

Text: This move consists of a huge clay model falling from the sky onto the target. Although it looks simple, it boasts the largest explosive power. (Me: Largest in comparison to C1 to C4. CO definitely causes a bigger explosion that C3) This exploding clay model, which follows the design of a doll, takes the scale and the beauty of an explosion to its utmost limit, and eliminates all that is considered as useless.

C4
Picture caption: When the clay figure explodes, tiny bombs scatter and spread over a wide range.

Text: The exploding clay takes the form of Deidara’s own appearance. When the huge Deidara-like form explodes, ultra-small bombs are scattered over a wide range. These nano-sized bombs cannot be seen by an ordinary person’s eyes. Once inhaled in, the bombs will go to every passage in the target’s body. Countless tiny explosions occur at the cellular level inside the body, causing destruction from the inside. It is only at the point of death that the target realizes that he has been attacked.

Secret Ninjutsu: CO
Rank: Not given
Type of jutsu: Offense type.
Range: From short to long.
User: Deidara
Title: An amazing explosion at the cost of the user’s life!

First Picture caption: The chest mouth can mix a large amount of Chakra with clay because it is directly connected to the heart.

Second Picture caption: Deidara sacrificed his life to become a great explosion that pierced the heavens and carved a mark on earth.

Text: The “CO”. This ninjutsu boasts the highest level of destruction from Deidara’s “exploding clay”. It is his “Ultimate Art”, and also a demonstration of his self-worth. The art he creates with his chest mouth differs from the kind created by his hand mouths. In this jutsu, chakra is taken directly from the central part of Deidara’s chakra system and kneaded with clay in his chest mouth. This process continues without stopping until the moment of the explosion. (My elaboration: The chakra system consists of channels that connect to the vital points in one’s body. I think that after chakra was kneaded into clay to make it explosive, the resultant explosive clay was absorbed into Deidara’s chakra system. That’s why his veins, which I think are actually his chakra channels, started to show.) In short, the explosion happens from inside Deidara’s body. This ninjutsu showcases the brilliance of his life’s work, and it also sublimates his being along with the surroundings.
There is too many Deidara pages.
