    Main text

    Four fingers standing up from tightly clasped hands, one uses a full-body jump to shove them between the opponent's buttocks! Not lethal, but highly distressing (tn: the actual word is illegible), and those hit by this technique will - ahem - taste agonizing pain for the thousand of years to come...!!

    Caption

    -An shocking, unexpected four-finger thrust for a millenium of agony?! Sure!

    Picture comment

    -Naruto's leap is a testament to this terrible* technique!!
    The original text uses punctuation to make it clear you're not supposed to take any of this seriously. This is kinda hard to convey in English, so I made a couple of minor additions instead.
    *This is blatant sarcasm, so you're free to give whichever meaning you see fit to the word "terrible".

    Shuriken from All Directions? (四方八方手裏剣, Shihou Happou Shuriken)
    Ninjutsu, A-rank, Offensive, Short to mid-range (0-10m)
    User: Uzumaki Naruto

    With these here flowers, the enemy is stricken with confusion!!

    From all directions - with no restraints
    On the shinobi stage blows a storm of shuriken!!

    Perfectly besieging the hated enemy from all directions with one's own "shadow," the Naruto Ninja Arts Book? is now unsealed! All at once, the "Shadow Clones?" throw, shoot, and release shuriken!! Avoiding all of the assailing rain of shuriken would prove difficult, even for the most agile of people... The enemy cannot help but focus their senses on the soaring shuriken. The next move is to drive one's hands into the blind spot that is inevitably created. At first glance, it seems to be a desperate move, but it's an intelligent attack with a hidden plot to drive the enemy into a predicament, giving a sense of Naruto's mastery over the Shadow Clone killing method.

    [picture of dozens of Naruto's clones throwing dozens of shuriken at Gaara]
    ↑"Surprising the enemy and trifling with them," an abundance of ingenuity and unexpectedness!! This is the true meaning of the Naruto Ninja Arts Book?, for sure!!

    ? The name literally translates to "four directions eight directions shuriken". "Four directions, eight directions" is an idiom meaning "from everywhere," "in all directions". The four directions are the cardinal directions: North, East, South, and West. The eight directions are these four and their halfway points: North-East, South-East, South-West, and North-West.

    Pouring down from every direction
    A hailstorm of two thousand fists!!

    Using "Multiple Shadow Clones?," Naruto releases a wild dance of punches!

    To start with, the opponent is kicked high into the air, while yelling "U-ZU-MA-KI"...!
    Then come the incessant certain hits of a thousand bodies x the left and right fists = two thousand punches...!!
    Finally, it's finished with a simultaneous blow from both a left and right hand!!

    →↓The initial movements are identical to those of the normal "Naruto Combo?," but the second half moves the combo into a different league entirely!

    User: Aburame Shino
    Supplementary; Rank: none.

    Main text

    A secret technique exclusive to the Aburame clan, where thousands, even myriads of insects are gathered in one place and pattern themselves after the caster's silhouette...! Seeing as it's elaborate enough to be mistaken for the original, it may be used as a decoy, or as part of a diversionary tactic. Furthermore, since one can put the insects in standby someplace beforehand, then have them assume the form of the clone, this jutsu is arguably even more effective than Kage Bunshin, depending on the task.

    Main text

    A jutsu only a Toad can use, by employing its characteristic bodily features. Its strong hips and legs give birth to an uncommonly precise leap, with which it slices at its target! Since the interval is covered in the blink of an eye, the opponent can't even try to escape. This is an ultra-fast taijutsu attack that goes well beyond the impossible.

    -He commits his heart and soul in the cleaving assault brought forth by his leaping strength!!

    -Even from a remote location, he immediately engages in close combat. He can even attack the opponent effectively, catching them off guard!

    -Thanks to his miraculous leaping strength, he can split anyone apart. He lopped off Shukaku's right arm when he fought against him!!

    Main text

    A technique developed by Shodai Hokage, founder of the Hidden Leaf village, and a surrealist Mokuton ninjutsu so excessively difficult no one besides the man himself has ever acquired it. By generating chakra, he maneuvers it as he sees fit for attack and defense; and furthermore, this omnipotent jutsu even allows him to capture the enemy at the same time. Even stating the Hidden Leaf village wouldn't have been established without this jutsu wouldn't be an exaggeration.

    Main text

    There are multiple categories of ninjutsu, such as Suiton and Doton, but essentially, whether those techniques may or may not be activated is influenced by the terrain, and using Suiton someplace where there is no water is nearly impossible. Only shinobi with Hokage-class levels of mastery may free themselves from this law of Nature.

    -This hijutsu is a legend among legends. There's no one in Konoha who doesn't know about it.
    *Written normally, "Jukai"="broad expanse of dense woodland". The spelling was altered to add the "realm" meaning. "Koutan" means "Nativity", or refers to birth in a royal lineage.

    Main text

    A kind of Fuuinjutsu (Sealing jutsu) that involves sealing a jutsu's effects within a specific location. As it is tailored for Katon jutsu, it requires a caster well-versed in the exacting art of "Sealing Formulas", as well as in ninjutsu.
    Once the sealing is performed, the jutsu's effects cannot be released anew as long as a Kaiinjutsu (Unsealing jutsu) is not applied. An effective jutsu to circumvent any secondary damage a dangerous technique might cause.

    Main text

    Capturing her is impossible already! Because she is a boneless mollusk, she has a fantastical ability to transform at will, that of deciding to divide her whole body or to reunite it. All physical attacks are nullified before this technique. No matter how violent the strike, it won't amount to more than a fruitless attempt. The enemy will just exhaust themselves accordingly and eventually fall to the ground.

    Caption

    -Her mollusk's body, which has no part that can be grasped, brings forth a full-body division!

    -She avoids the attacks by dividing her whole body. And she did so with ease, even against Manda, Orochimaru's summoned Great Snake's firm and tight grip.

    -It exists for the sake of blooming to a blood-red flower!

    Main text

    -One pulls out a bone sword from bone pulse(refer to Gottheim's trans of Shikotsumyaku ), then stabs chaotically continuously which causes the eyes to lag behind! The speed resembles afterimages, the hand with the sword is again and again visibly projected. And yet movement is irregular which makes it difficult to predict.

    -Yet one can have great reflexes and moving ability, it is next to impossible to keep dodging the fierce attack until it stops. Thus if one showed an opening in an instant, a finishing blow will be dealt by one stab, what follows is the fate to sacrifice blood when ones dies.


    Picture comments

    -To be capable of harmony with the five dances is relatively simple, only if you are Kimimaro!!

    -With each thrust the sword's track is very capable of changing! The attack comes from unexpected angles ,causing to catch a person's delicate defense reaction off guard...!

    Naturally if the flesh or skin gets a direct hit, it gets shaved to the bone, seems like it is something that completely gouges. The jutsu becomes the corner stone of Kimimaro's long range attacks.

    Main text

    -How the battlefield looks like when Kimimaro changes into stage 2(TN: Curse seal), a supreme fine art of massacre jutsu. Dance of the Clematis invokes death with certainty, it is assuredly a dance of death.

    -To bend the spinal column as if it were similar to a whip, it is a vine that attacks. It is comparable to judo techniques where one needs to be hold on to survive, of course what awaits is that despair grows for the victim.

    Picture comments

    -Kimimaro's stage 2 suddenly changes his appearance. The spinal cord acts like a tail of an animal, it covers a dreadfully long distance.

    -Betweens the bones in the gaps there is cartilage that allows flexibility, which makes it possible to bend it as if it were a whip. With average estimation skills along with the impossible range it stretches, dodging is difficult.

    -A weapon that can boast of its absolute solidity whose destructive power is given by the god of battle.

    Main text

    -All the power of Morbid Bone Pulse(TN: refer to Gottheim's trans of Shikotsumyaku ) concentrated in one point. To obtain the strongest-absolute hardest weapon considerable amount of chakra is needed.

    The clan's main specialty was slaughter, the crystallization of the gift is by blood. The ultimate destructive power has no meaning if the blow does not connect with the opponent.

    Therefore, one seals an opponent at least with a "vine", to kill for sure with the "flower" being held...in fact one could even say that this is a two stage preparation move!!


    Picture comments

    -Thrusting out are bones, in order to form the weapon.

    -Enhanced to the highest degree-maximum solidity due to the dense compression, the bone weapon is exceedingly large. If one is in stage 2, it can be handled no matter how impossible it is.

    This jutsu is a good example of how even simple taijutsu can become a pre-eminently destructive, lethal technique. The move here is a simple rear spinning low kick, but Lee's speed and power, make it mighty enough to send a large adult flying as if they weighed nothing. The goal is to throw the enemy off balance, and deal damage to the lower half of their body.

    Main text

    A taijutsu where one pulls off irregular attacks and moves in ways unknown even to themselves, courtesy of being stiff drunk. The enemy is completely outwitted by those movements they can't read in advance, and they are thrown into confusion. Prone to drunken frenzies, Lee is a natural master of the Drunken Fist.

    -His tottering steps play a disorderly tempo! His next move he can't even read himself, so ask the booze, why dun'tcha?!

    -This can't be the same guy!! (lit: Way too much of a change in personalities)

    Picture comment

    -Lee's knack for Taijutsu coupled with his unforeseeable movements let him strike at the enemy off-guard, attacking and defending with unexpected motions.

    -Just what's with those drunken frenzies even Guy can't handle?! The usually well-spoken Lee charges with the destructive power of an explosion!!
    The meaning is 100% intact but I took some liberties with the vocabulary and tone, for humor's sake.

    Spoiler: Databook 3 - Sai
    Main text

    Page 1

    Letting go of one's feelings and just carrying out the given assignment, faithfully. For Sai, whose family war had torn apart, Sai who'd been brought up by ROOT, this took priority over anything else. Naruto is the one who smashed those values to pieces. Though he was perplexed by his roused feelings, he was gradually attracted by them for no reason other than the fact that in truth, he'd never rid himself of his heart at all. Sai had lost the one and only friend he ever had in his older brother Shin, and there is no doubt that in his eyes, the new camaraderie he'd built up during his time with Naruto and his group was radiating with a blinding light.

    Page 2

    [Choujuu Giga*]
    Should he draw a bird, he'll be able to fly. If he draws mice, he can increase the number of helping hands in an investigation: ANBU missions require adaptability, the kind that can cope with any situation. Sai provides for this need with only one jutsu.

    [The Greatest Priorities]
    For Sai, who'd grown up in ROOT, any word outside of "completing one's mission" were devoid of meaning. Even when he worked in a team, his allies were hardly more than people there to carry out the assignment smoothly, and other forms of interaction with them was unnecessary. At least, until his encounter with Naruto...

    [Top Secret Mission]
    As Sai was incorporated into Team Kakashi, Danzou spoke to him, giving him another mission. To carry it out, he deceives enemies and allies alike and silently makes his move. He would track down Sasuke's footsteps for a reason: not to rescue him, but to assassinate him...

    [Bonds]
    The older brother Sai speaks of is a young boy who like him, grew up in ROOT. The friendship they shared was the last thing reminding him what it was to be involved with others. Upon Shin's death, Sai discarded his own heart and every bond he ever shared with other people. But when he came in contact with Naruto, who bore a likeness with his faint memories of Shin, his craving for friendship intensified and surfaced once again... And Sai set out in a quest for it as an end to the agitation.

    [Picture Book]
    Sai has drawn a picture book he always carries with him, as a testament to his friendship with Shin. But with his heart gone, Sai was unable to draw the last scene. The moment he filled in the last page was significant: it meant he'd found himself bonded by friendship once again.

    [Friends]
    He'd held Naruto in higher regard than the mission he'd been given. Which also meant that his bonds with Team Kakashi's members were genuinely engraved into him. And this is proof that he'd understood the signification of the word "friend".

    -Sai has made friends, and now he learns about human relations. But the results end up upsetting Sakura, and things get ugly...

    -Though he does know the word, its meaning is foreign to him...

    -He parts from Team Kakashi and approaches Orochimaru by himself. But even these negotiations are a ploy for the sake of his true mission.

    -He renounces the mission he's betrayed his allies to carry out.

    -Disregarding the fact that he's in the middle of an infiltration, Sai revolts against Kabuto.

    -The illustration that fills in the blank page is probably an expression of a wish Sai had entertained.

    -The two of them have just been clouted by Sakura. Her expression differed from the last time, so they're somewhat on friendly terms, now...? Oh, well**.

    Main text

    Page 1

    A Jounin of Konoha, he possesses the rare Wind basic Nature Alteration, and boasts the foremost skill in close combat. Very few are those who know about his past, however. Asuma's relationship with his father Hiruzen has always been marked by his antagonism and feelings of admiration... "The most important thing to the village is not its Hokage". Seeking to understand what his father really meant, Asuma would lead his daily life holding little concern for the village. Ironically, his father's death and the coming forth of a new life would put an end to this. And light the fire of an unshakable will in Asuma.

    Page 2

    [Bougin*]
    Operation "Destroy Konoha" took place three years ago. Given his position as Hokage, his father Hiruzen stood in the frontmost line of battle, and laid down his life. Contemplating what Hiruzen's stance pertaining to existence had been like, Asuma discovered a small beam of light within himself. The truly important thing is neither Hokage, nor country... When he became a father himself, the "beam of light" he'd discovered three years ago became the clear and bright Will that gave him the answer.

    [Team 10]
    Nara Shikamaru, Akimichi Chouji, Yamanaka Ino. Konoha's Team 10 is the first pupils he was given when he came back from his wanderings. The shinobi who would shoulder the next generation. The moment he met them was also the second when, for the first time, he'd found people to "entrust with his will".

    [The Will of Fire]
    As a Konoha shinobi and as a master... Asuma chose death of his own accord, a fact deeply etched into the eyes of his disciple... Even though his body was struck down, his will would become a fire that would keep on illuminating the village. And his soul would be inherited by the King, the ones who had the future in their charge. This is what he believed.

    -He offers a bunch flowers to the one whom he loves. His pupil points it out, much to the awkward man's discomfort...

    Page 2

    -To this day, the proof that he was among the Twelve Shinobi Guardians has never left him. Together with Chiriku and others, he was one of the Daimyou's protectors.

    -The vanguard is to charge the enemy's position. Trusting its allies in the rear, they boldly throw themselves on the frontmost lines.

    -The master's aura is warm with reliable promise and kindness. Asuma's Will is unfailibly passed along to the next generation, and those to come...!!

    TAIJUTSU; Shishi Rendan (Lion's Combo)
    User: Uchiha Sasuke
    Offensive; Close range; Rank: C

    Main text

    Exclusive to Sasuke, proud recipient of the Uchiha blood, this ultra-fast combo attack requires an advanced physical condition and a certain knack for it. The opponent is tossed into the air and shadowed with Kage Buyou*. Upon inflicting a blow, one takes advantage of said opponent's counterattack to spin around and rise again for further assaults. Since the fall is increased in velocity with each blow, the damage when one is eventually struck to the ground is unconceivable.

    -The lion's roar calls upon a storm. A furious, unrelenting attack in the blink of an eye.

    -The lion's fangs//leap and dance//splitting and tearing apart!!

    Picture comments

    -The first blow is parried. But the lion bares his fangs, one after another...! (tn: the sentence is incomplete because some Kanji were illegible).

    -The strength from the assaults generate a high-speed fall, that strikes together with the final blow!!
    *See DB 1: Kage Buyou

    Main text

    One of the genjutsu that have been passed along since ancient times in Konoha. One is completely robbed of their mobility as they see the mirage of a tree coiling itself around them! Given that the subject remains conscious, this jutsu proves extremely efficient for information-gathering.

    Caption

    -Ensnared and captured. Such is the nefarious influence of the dire tree!!

    Picture comments

    -The illusory tree entwines itself around the subject!!

    -Attacking once the target is immobile, stripping away their life is but another way in which Jubaku Satsu may be used.
    *"Jubaku" means "spell" or "curse" when written with the proper Kanji. I tried to reflect that with "woodbound", crafted after the word "spellbound

    Supplementary; Rank: C

    Main text

    A ninjutsu where one suddenly appears to the ground's surface. Its efficiency will increase drastically if used in conjunction with a jutsu such as an Oboro Bunshin (Mist Clone) to draw the enemy's attention. Furthermore, it's even more efficient when employed in a crowded area that, if the target notices something, can be overrun by the nearby masses... A likely resort. Used quite often for things such as personality assassination.

    -Striking and sneaking silently, like a fish underwater.

    -The army approaches stealthily, without a noise... Such is the ultimate strategy for a guerrilla.

    A lump of ground like the Earth, created with herculean strength!!

    With chakra work and superhuman strength, he lifts up the very surface of the Earth and throws it! The lump of earth he is holding is gigantic enough to make Naruto go "that's ridiculous!!" in surprise! Of course, the destructive power is obvious, but even just the visual impact can be enough to make enemies lose their fighting spirits and run away, really making this a very exiting technique!!

    [pictures of Jiroubou slamming his hand on the ground and lifting up a gigantic clump of earth]
    →↓With the mass of earth jiroubou lifted, he covers the entire area in shadow!!

    ? The name of this technique may be taken from the Japanese art of Dorodango (泥だんご, Mud Dumplings), in which hard, polished spheres are made using nothing but earth, water, and one's hands.

    Main text

    A Summoning jutsu the siblings Sakon and Ukon performed simultaneously. The door's tightly shut entrance totally forbids intrusion, and boasts a solidity that completely intercepts the enemy's physical attacks! This jutsu was initially something Orochimaru used for self-defense. He would call upon it at a moment's notice, which also enabled him to retaliate in accordance with his foe's offensive!!

    Caption

    -The imposing, most powerful defensive Gate!!

    Picture comment

    -The demonic features on the battlefield stop the enemy in their tracks! This bloodthirsty appearance begets an implacable tenacity: no one shall pass.
    *The name of a gate in ancient Kyoto. Also a movie by Akira Kurosawa.
    **修羅 ("shura") means "scene of battle". But the text makes it clear this should be interpreted as a reference to Ashura (a war demon) as well.

    Rising from the ground, the prison barrier is a dome composed of earth!!

    Stretched out is a large amount of chakra within the walls, as a result it is possible to repair instantly some damage. However the true horror of the jutsu is, that the jutsu user is able from one point suck the chakra out of the people that are inside the walls. People who get captured lose their strength ,to oppose it is nothing but beyond one's power.

    Imprisoning the victims in a mud wall, Jiroubu devours their chakra! In that manner, it is as if he digests food in his stomach, a method of absorbing nutrients.

    Gaara forces himself to sleep and fuses his chakra with that of Shukaku at the same time, the result of this jutsu is the unity of mind and body!! Freed from its spiritual medium's control, Shukaku draws upon his naturally massive [amounts of] chakra so it can rampage as its destructive instinct dictates!!

    -picture comment

    This jutsu, in regards to the spirit medium demands their resolution to surrender their personality to the Shukaku! The moment it's activated, the cheerful tanuki monster is released, and proceeds to show its face.

    The spirit medium has to suffer insomnia

    -main text
    Exhausted by the Shukaku, with the fear that it will consume the personality, it's an easy way to fall into insomnia. If the life of insomnia continues, it is bound to weaken the mind of the spirit medium itself, it will become instable. Such is the reason for Gaara's eye markings and psychotic behavior.

    -picture comments

    Gaara has been a spirit medium since birth, being tormented by insomnia since infancy, causing him to grow increasingly unbalanced.

    Main text

    This is the jutsu Kakashi used when he sealed away the Cursed Seal that Orochimaru had bestowed upon Sasuke. Seeing as the Cursed Seal itself is an advanced technique in the first place, the jutsu for containing it can only be employed by the elite among shinobi. That said, this sealing jutsu may suppress the Cursed Seal's power, but even it cannot get rid of it completely.

    -Using the caster's blood as a medium... to contain the wicked spell!!

    -Carrying out this technique requires a staggering amount of preparations.

    -As the jutsu activates, the letters of blood congregate around the Cursed Seal, becoming the chains preventing the spread of its malignant power.

    The third hokage's comrade in arms, the monkey king enma's transformation jutsu Characterized by the hardness of diamond and its at-will extensibility, Kongou Nyoi-Bou is Sandaime's"weapon of choice", so to speak and with it in hand he's made it through a world of war for an extended period of time.

    Also, when Enma is transformed into Diamond Shifting Staff, it is also possible that he can attack out of his own free will, his claws and fangs add an element of surprise and irregularity. Forged in the fire of battle, its at-will transformation-based attack and defense go beyond the scope of proficiency, to attain the realm of Shinobi "godhood".

    -picture comments

    -The main method of attack consists in strikes and thrusts that take advantage of its extensibility. The hardness of diamond translates into destructive power.

    -Enma's fangs assault the enemy!

    A threatening taijutsu trick that converts Chouji's obese... er, chubby frame into a destructive weapon. Its effective use of weight and the force of rotation make for an even great lethality than appearances would let on, enough to pulverize someone's hand with but a mere touch. Among the countless taijutsu moves in existence, this showy display of raw power is assuredly one of a kind.

    Would you look at that. He can also use the topography to propel himself sky-high!

    Supplementary; Rank: none

    Swelling his limb for the strike, felling the enemy at lightning speed!!

    A practical application of the technique that lets one expand their own body, Baika no jutsu.
    The point of swelling a single part of the body is to use the weight to increase the power of one's physical attacks. Any bodily part may be augmented this way, but for ease of use the arms and legs tend to be chosen quite frequently. Like the majority of the Akimichi clan's techniques, this one requires a considerable amount of chakra.

    The expansion is exceedingly sudden, and its high speed makes it extremely difficult to avoid.

    Main text

    A specialty from Gaara of the Desert, a jutsu where he makes the land a stage for his representation. Sabaku Taisou is identical to Sabaku Kyuu (Desert's Binding Sand Coffin**) in that the stream [of sand] captures and grinds. But as far as scale goes, this is a totally different league. Kimimaro held his own against a single attack, but multiple obliterations are where this technique shines.

    -The prey is swallowed by a cascading stream and squeezed to death by the sandy landscape!!!!

    -Completely trapped he is by Ryuusa Bakuryuu's tidal wave. Deprived of all means of escaping, he is crushed...!!

    *"Taisou"="imperial funeral". And naturally, since things are never that simple with Kishi, the spelling of the word "sabaku" has been fiddled with (cf. DB 2: Ryuusa Bakuryuu).
    **I trust I don't need to explain what happened...
