    Spoiler: Databook 3 - Umino Iruka
    Main text

    As a teacher at the ninjas' school, Iruka holds his classes daily. Before anything else, he teaches the value of friendship, and the history of Konoha's great ancestors. What must one protect in this ruthless shinobi world?... For Iruka, the answer is: the pupils left in his care. Even the Naruto who learns advanced jutsu and becomes steadily stronger, he feels entitled to protect.

    Captions

    -He is proud of all his pupils. He carries along the Will of Fire, lit and burning.

    -You've become pretty strong, am I right?

    Picture comment

    -Sometimes strict, sometimes gentle. He looks at his students with seriousness.
    Iruka: No... Because... he is no longer the weak shinobi I used to worry about... And the same goes for Sakura...

    A strong-willed, red haired Kunoichi who sees her dream for the future through the life she carries.

    Main text: A former Kunoichi from the Uzu no kuni, she's the woman who gave birth to Naruto. In the gruesome girlhood's upheavals of wars Kushina went through, she was looking for one thing, a daily "peace" that appease the heart. Kushina'd had a child with her lifelong companion, she got what should had been her peace. However, that was too weak and it crumbled away before Kyuubi. Kushina entrusted her dream to Naruto, her baby to be born... To get peace for himself. And, the resolve to never it give up.

    Upper picture's side text: A strong-willed spirit and that kind of ninjutsu skillfulness, even the sannin had heard of her, she won fame... Tsunade: "Yeah?his personality and ninjutsu are just like Kushina's."

    Uzumaki Naruto, the origin of the name

    Main text: "Naruto" - Strangely, Jiraiya who later became his master, gave his approval to use this name from his almost autobiographic novel's main character. A hero with a "heart which never gives up", just like Jiraiya, deeply impressed Minato and Kushina. As a common wish, they decided to give that name to their child to be born.

    Right picture's side text: His godfather is Jiraiya. Did Naruto's love for ramen also come from the origin of his name? Jiraiya: "Ha ha... my? you say you'll make me his godfather?"

    Left picture's side text: With Naruto's name, he was put into the nindou he will later follow. Minato: "Once the child is born, it will be nice if he grew to become a shinobi like the main character."

    Mission history: 7 D-rank, 1 C-rank, 2 B-rank, 6 A-rank, 0 S-rank

    With the burning will of Fire in his heart, he runs towards his dreams and his bonds!!

    Over 2 years have passed, and Naruto is back to Konoha. His growth definitely deserves to be taken a look at. "I never take back my words...". He didn't lie when he said those words to Sakura. His severe training with Jiraiya earned him a new jutsu, plus he also learned how to counter genjutsu and became more skilled with shurikenjutsu and the likes, strengthening the basis of his abilities as a shinobi. Naruto is no longer a reckless ninja who fights blindly against the enemy. With his inborn "unlikeliness" and "willpower", and with the "strength" he gained from training, he will charge through his nindou (=ninja way/ethics/values, ndt) like a hurricane!!

    (balloons: "I'm going to become Hokage too one day! The Kazekage will have to return me this favor.")
    The self-confidence reflected in his eyes stems from his endless training. He won't stop pursuing his dreams!!

    (balloons: "I'll definitely steal Sasuke back from him!"
    If that's what is needed to save his comrades and friends, Naruto can become stronger than anyone else.

    Surprise attack! He can still be unlikely.

    (balloons: "That jutsu is nothing special, Konohamaru! Now look! I'll show you my brand-new and improved erotic ninjutsu!! Here we gooo!!")
    The erotic ninjutsu praised by Jiraiya is powered up (!?) too. His teacher's influence is evident even outside of training.

    {page 026-027}
    The sorrow of the ones who harbor a "bijuu" inside of their body....

    [Jinchuuriki]
    "Jinchuuriki" is the name given to the ones who have a "bijuu" sealed inside their body. The way people treat them is not very different from village to village. In his childhood Naruto was treated as a "menace" to the village and experienced an unbearable loneliness, that is why he can understand very well Gaara's suffering. The Leaf or the Sand makes no difference to him: he wishes nothing but to save Gaara from the darkness and share his happiness with him. Just like his teacher Iruka saved him in the past.

    (balloons: "The spirit of the Kyuubi is sealed inside my body.")
    When he finds out the reason why Akatsuki is after them, he's consumed with rage!!

    The fate of a "jinchuuriki" and the "bijuu" sealed inside of him is to confront each other for eternity...!!

    [The same suffering]
    When Naruto discovered that Gaara had become Kazekage, he rejoiced with all his heart. When he had to face his death, he shed bitter tears as if it was his own demise. Only "jinchuuriki" can truly understand other "jinchuuriki". Only people who have spent their life carrying such a heavy burden can share their sorrows and joys with each other.

    (balloons: "Shut up!!!")
    Gaara's death feels as painful as if it were his own.

    Friendship that knows no bounds can open the doors to a new future.

    [Miraculous power]
    Naruto ran to save Gaara, and before long, many other comrades ran to his side, both from the Leaf and the Sand. Naruto's "miraculous power" bonds people together. He can become friends with anyone, even the ones that used to be fierce enemies. His unprejudiced friendship goes beyond national borders and spreads out large, deep, bringing hope to people. Naruto has known "loneliness", thus he can understand the importance of "bonds" more than anyone else: that is why he can move other people's hearts.

    (balloons: "You gave us quite a trouble...!")
    The warmth coming from Naruto reminds more of a family's than a friend's. His selfless kindness soaks into one's heart.

    [Entrusted future]
    "Shinobi World War", then the "Crush of the Leaf"... The "Leaf" and the "Sand" have repeatedly fought each other. But now both parties can be liberated from their hostile ties and head towards a new future. As long as Naruto's "miraculous power" lights up the path they will have to walk.

    (balloons: "Yes... Now I can clearly understand baachan's feelings!")
    Chiyo's earnest wish will be granted, as long as Naruto and Gaara live...!!

    {page 028-029}
    He will put everything on the line to protect his bonds!!

    [Team Kakashi]
    The "new team Kakashi" is formed, but Naruto rejects their new teammate Sai because he firmly believes Sasuke to be the only possible third member. "Teamwork is important". Yes, he knows that. But still, he cannot possibly accept as a member of "team Kakashi" someone like Sai, who slights teammates and insults Sasuke...!!

    The success of a mission depends on teamwork. They must dismiss their hesitations and just look at what's in front of them...!!

    (balloons: "I will do anything to save that friend.")
    "For my friend". This wholehearted intent brings Naruto to cooperate with Sai.

    [Impatience]
    He is restless. He is cornered. Just a little more time and Orochimaru would complete his reincarnation. His friend is so close that he can almost touch him. Naruto reaches for the Kyuubi's power...

    (balloons: "Sasuke...")
    His "power" still isn't enough to save Sasuke! This thought makes him impatient...!!

    (balloons: "I'll definitely bring Sasuke back! It's my promise of a lifetime!!")
    He made a "promise" 3 years ago, and he isn't going to break it!!

    [Forbidden power]
    In his training with Jiraiya Naruto has learned to control the Kyuubi's strength. But such a power is too huge to be so easily dominated...

    His self collapses and he destroys anyone he sees.

    At this stage he transcends shinobi boundaries. With a super high-density chakra cannon he turns to ashes anything that's in front of his eyes.

    [Real strength]
    The power of the Kyuubi's fourth tail is a double-edged sword that even hurts his own body and the people he is supposed to protect. After hearing the truth from Yamato, Naruto decides that he won't use that power anymore. To protect the ones he cares for, he will believe in his own chakra, that is in fact as resilient as to be able to endure the Kyuubi's.

    (balloons: "Get lost...!")
    The Kyuubi tries to break the seal again, but Naruto stops it of his own will.

    {page 030-031}
    Unbreakable "feelings" burn in his heart....

    [A voice that cannot reach]
    Sasuke, whom he longed to meet again, is there in front of his eyes...!! But his heart is distant, even more than it was until now. Yet Naruto believes that somewhere deep in his heart Sasuke still cares for his friends; that he, the one who left him alive in the Valley of the End, still hasn't severed his "bond" with them. Nevertheless, Sasuke cold-heartedly points his sword at Naruto. Is it too late...!? He shakes off the resignation flitting through his mind and summons his fighting spirit. He cannot give up. He has to fulfill the promise!!

    As if to highlight the distance between them, Sasuke stands far off.

    Sasuke's eyes are even colder than before. His blade attacks Naruto without hesitation!!

    "I will never give up".... A "possibility" born from his indomitable nindou.

    [Hope]
    Sasuke's rescue was a failure. Naruto was shown the difference in their abilities, plus his longstanding feelings were completely rejected. But thanks to the words of his teammates he stands up again. The power gap can be filled. If his voice doesn't reach, he can just step closer. Most importantly, he has friends ready to join forces with him. His fighting spirit burning, Naruto once again runs with his teammates!! Because he believes that "not giving up" is the only means to save Sasuke....

    (balloons: "I'm here too! I'll become strong with you!!")
    Naruto is able to stand up over and over again because he has friends that run with him.

    (balloons: "Well, just watch him and see yourself. He's completely different than before!")
    His eyes look straight ahead, unwavering!!

    {page 032}
    A portion of the "legend" is visible on his back....

    [Training]
    The "Kagebunshin training method" devised by Kakashi perfectly suits Naruto's huge amount of chakra. He manages to achieve "property modification" in only two days, while it normally requires years of practice.

    Naruto trains to master a new jutsu that even Yondaime couldn't bring to completion!!

    [Sasuke]
    The presence of a good rival can become a driving force to accelerate one's growth. The existence of Sasuke, the genius boy always in front of Naruto, adds "zeal" to his training! And it eventually makes his talent bloom...!!

    (balloons: "I gotta catch up with that Sasuke!!")
    It's because Sasuke exists that Naruto can become stronger.

    [A shinobi that can surpass the Fourth Hokage]
    "Fuuton - Rasenshuriken", the still incomplete ultimate ninjutsu that nobody has ever used. Not even Yondaime Hokage could complete this jutsu, but Naruto was able to polish it up and use it in an actual fight...!! The Academy's loser is about to evolve into a shinobi that will become the main force of the next era!!

    "Kagebunshin no Jutsu", which can store a person's experience data, is put to practical use right away.

    (balloons: "Take this!")
    The "spiral" (rasen, ndt) created by the Fourth is passed on to his son and now swirls like a storm!!

    Main text

    During her time at the Academy, Ino's results put her in the top tier among kunoichi. She entertained a fine rivalry with her fellow classmate, Sakura. But once she'd placed herself under Tsunade's tutelage, Sakura underwent a rapid evolution. This became a great source of motivation for Ino. However, she feels no need to hurry. She never skips her daily training, and she spends day after day working hard. Ino knows even the largest, most glorious flower needs to earnestly reach towards the sun to expand, and grows little by little every day... The industrious flower will patiently withstand the winter until the end, and without fail, it will soon yield some magnificent results...!!

    Spoiler: Databook 3 - Yamato
    Main text

    Page 1

    In order to deal with Hatake Kakashi's absences from duty, Godaime Hokage, Tsunade, considered the formation of a New Team Kakashi. Yamato was picked among the best of the best the Hokage had under her immediate control. At that, sole wielder since Shodai Hokage, of the unique vegetation-creating hijutsu, Yamato was an outstandingly skilled member of the ANBU. He'd made a name for himself, as Tenzou of the Mokuton. His grave destiny is written in his genes. While bearing this burden, Yamato makes use of his power, as he needs to fight alongside his new subordinates.

    Page 2

    [The School of Prudence]
    Ever since Sandaime Hokage was in office, Yamato was commended for his mastery*; his efficiency apparent even in his data. D-rank, S-rank. In all the missions he was involved in, the survival rate of the team members under his command would be well off the scales. He is excessively cautious**. His overly careful disposition serves as a way to help out his precious subordinates, a walking stick preventing them from falling over.

    [Captaincy]
    All due respect notwithstanding, Captain Yamato does not share Kakashi's conception of leadership. Even the inexperienced among his people he will exhort, unhesitatingly and honestly. Disregarding higher, middle, or lower ranks, he acknowledges each subordinate of his as a shinobi. The success of the mission is tied to this as well as to the way the squad is led, and he knows it.

    [Shodai's Genome]
    Yamato's Mokuton Hijutsu originates from Shodai Hokage's genes implanted into him. His person is the outcome of Orochimaru's laboratory experiments. Even though normally, one should loathe such a traumatic past, Yamato copes with it.
    Because now, Mokuton Ninjutsu is Yamato's pride, and the greatest weapon he has to protect his fellows.

    [The Training's Cornerstone]
    Thanks to his faculty, he becomes Uzumaki Naruto's power. That is the foremost purpose of his selection as a team captain. For his hijutsu is the one and only means to keep the Kyuubi inside of Naruto under control. Before long, the man born as a lab experiment found himself fueling Naruto's drive to bring forward his new power...!!

    Captions

    -It's not about how much or how little you can do...

    -Perfectly calm and reserved underneath his mask, he hosts the peerless Mokuton Hijutsu!!

    -His honed, keen intuition senses someone dangerous...!! He bravely steps in to rescue his subordinates!!

    -One word is all Kakashi needs to have him at his beck and call. It has to do with the sense of admiration-turned-into-"worship" Yamato has for him.

    Page 2

    -Before a mission, Yamato won't fail to run a drill to secure the team's coordination.

    -To Yamato, bashing a door open is pure nonsense...!!

    -In order to lead his party, he won't shy away from occasionally ruling though fear.

    -Yamato's style is not about standing at the top, but to withdraw there.

    -Orochimaru's foul human experiments... Among sixty people, Yamato is the sole survivor.

    - A deed only one who wields Mokuton can carry out!! Silencing even a bijuu!!

    -Kyuubi's chakra suppressed, his subordinate's training accomplished, he is quite confident in the future he sees in him!!

    Spoiler: Databook 3 - Zetsu
    Main text

    A shell like that of an insectivorous plant. Two conversing individuals with their characteristic personalities. Even amidst the odd abilities boasted by Akatsuki in general, Zetsu comes off as particularly unsettling (tn: no one is creepier than Orochimaru! Know your place, Aloe-Vera!!). He's watched the important battles of the ninja world, and burnt them into his memory. After encountering Madara, the Akatsuki's chessmaster, Zetsu endorses the responsibility to record battles. While closely inquiring about Madara's true motives, he still proceeds onto battlefields: merely a way to satisfy his curiosity? Or something else...?

    Captions

    -Ah-hah... Things have become pretty interesting, right? Yeah...

    -Mandibles are covering his odd features. Concealed into the ground, he records everything!!

    Picture comments

    -He has the power to extend his vigilance over vast areas. Whether it's ninjutsu or an inherent ability of Zetsu's is unknown.

    -Perfectly concealing the signs of his presence, he observes battles carefully. That technique lets him practically pop out of nowhere!!

    -Zetsu is always in charge of disposing of the dead*. That shell of his gets rid of all evidence.

    -He surely is enthusiastic about his curiosity. Minutely analyzing battles is nothing but fun to him.

    Red Secret Technique: Performance* of a Hundred Puppets (赤秘技・百機の操演, Akahigi: Hyakki no Souen)
    Ninjutsu, S-rank, Offensive, Defensive, All ranges
    User: Sasori

    The black-blooded sea of puppets that destroyed a country!!

    One can tell the true power of a puppet user by the amount of puppets they can handle. "A puppet per finger," in short ten puppets, was the highest peak achieved so far, but this technique overthrows common sense. By directly connecting the puppets to the "core" inside the body, using one's fingers becomes unnecessary. The user can make the puppets move with their will. Even a hundred puppets can be successfully manipulated, as if using one's limbs.

    [picture of the puppets attacking]
    ↑↓Because the puppets are directly connected to the core, there is no time lag between the user's will and the puppets' movement. Such war potential is powerful enough to even make a country fall.

    [picture of all the puppets just after Sasori summoned them]

    *Souen (操演) literally means "manipulating performance". This obviously refers to puppets being manipulated in a show. I translated this into simply "puppet performance" which, together with "hyakki" ("a hundred puppets"), became "performance of a hundred puppets".

    Chidori* Sharp Spear (千鳥鋭槍, Chidori Eisou)
    Ninjutsu, A-rank, Offensive, Short to mid-range (0-10m)
    User: Uchiha Sasuke

    A piercing spear of lightning, composing a song of death!!

    The original "Chidori" gained its power by shaping it into a form sufficient for an electrical discharge and using it together with one's own "thrust". This technique uses "shape transformation" to form the original "Chidori" into a spear-shape, adapting it for mid-range attacks.
    Although it's less powerful than the "Chidori," it's increased range means there is less of a risk to the user. It also has the advantage of being able to be used for surprise attacks and capturings.

    [picture of Sasuke piercing Itach with this technique]

    With the "Chidori" shaped into a spear, the enemy's body is pierced. Furthermore, by using "shape transformation" to turn it into a radiating shape, a final blow can be dealt.

    *Chidori (千鳥) means "a thousand birds". It's from a story about a sixteenth-century military commander named Tachibana Dousetsu, who owned a sword named the Chidori. One day, he was struck by lightning while sitting under a tree. Acting quickly, he drew his sword and cut the Thunder God riding the lightning. This saved his life and after this incident, he changed the name of his sword from Chidori to Raikiri (雷切, "Lightning Cutter").

    User: Uchiha Sasuke

    A Chidori flapping its wings into every direction
    A profusion of purple lightning, giving both offence and defence at the same time!!

    [picture of Sasuke repelling team Kakashi with the Chidori Current]
    →The body of the person touched by the "Chidori" will misinterpret the Lightning nature as "electrical signals from the nerves," making its muscles contract. This causes the body to involuntarily go stiff, while at the same time receiving damage.

    The one who approaches this body will be attacked all over!!

    This ninjutsu makes practical use of the "Chidori" by extending its attack range, in order to make use of the Lightning nature's special characteristic of "temporarily making the muscles of the touched person go stiff," and attempt to enfold multiple enemies. By releasing the "Chidori" in every direction, an electrical discharge flows from one's entire body. This allows one to attack everyone within a specific range. Also, when using this attack on a great number of enemies at once, it also effectively doubles as an instant defence.

    User: Uchiha Sasuke

    Assaulting the enemy with a "Chidori," shaped into flock of thousands of needles!!

    This is also a variety of "Chidori" "shape transformation". The same technique as the pinnacle of Lightning nature, it is specialised in more speed, by being transformed into countless sharp "senbon," all aimed and fired at the enemy. As this flock of dazzling needles soars, the chakra gives off a sound like "chichichi," really making it seem like a thousand birds! It can become even more effective by using it together with the "Sharingan," allowing one to precisely shoot for the enemy's vitals.

    [picture of Sasuke shooting out his Chidori Senbon]
    ↑By increasing the amount of chakra used, the number of "senbon" also increases!

The weight and power of the hands are greatly increased because of the larger size, the muscles are activated with concentrated chakra, and the thickness has also increased. This gives this attack the power to even cave in the earth.

    User: Sai

    Imitating life, the beasts move to the will put into the brush!!

    The moment the brush, through which chakra is flown, is removed, the drawn images will leap from the paper and act according to the user's will!! There are few techniques in existence that have so many different uses. During the many special missions given out by "Root," there are many situations where one must take spontaneous or independent action. This technique, characteristic to Sai, which allows one to adapt to the circumstances of any confrontation, must be a lifeline.

    [picture of one of Sai's lion drawings]
    ↑The figures are filled with the feeling of life, even though the source of the drawings has no emotions.

    [picture of Sai opening his drawing scroll]
    ↑He doesn't panic, even in emergencies, and quickly finishes his drawing!

    [picture of Sai opening the ink compartment of his drawing scroll]
    ↑The shaft of the scroll is prepared with ink and a small brush. Perfectly equipped to use this technique at all times.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    [picture of Sai flying on the back of his bird drawing]
    →Riding the drawn "bird" through the sky has many uses from reconnaissance to high-speed travel.

    The greatest feature of the ninja art "Super Beast Imitating Drawing" is that depending on the beast drawn, various effects can be obtained. If it's necessary to do reconnaissance from the sky, a bird can be drawn. For attacking from a distance, one can draw beasts of prey. Furthermore, if one draws a countless number of mice, it even becomes possible to perform an unworkable number of searches~~ Depending on the user's ingenuity, this technique certainly is an all-purpose power.

    On occasion flying through the sky or lurking in the darkness~~
    Changing freely to the circumstances of the mission!!

    [Picture of Sai drawing a row of lions]
    →↓By drawing several pictures, the number of embodied beasts is also increased.
    [picture of the lion drawings attacking Naruto]

    [picture of Sai's mouse drawings scurrying away]
    ←By not taking roads to travel, the "mice" are inconspicuous, making them the most suitable, not just for searches, but also for delivering information obtained from enemy camps to Konoha.

    [pictures of Sai's snake drawings and of those snake drawings capturing Naruto and Yamato]
    →After being drawn quickly, the "snakes" can be used as ropes to restrain someone. With the ability to soundlessly enter through even the smallest crevice, they can also be used for assassination purposes.

    *The name of this technique comes from a famous set of picture scrolls called the "Wildlife Caricatures" (鳥獣戯画, Choujuu Giga). Consisting of four parts, it features anthropomorphic animals and is considered one of the national treasures of Japan. It is sometimes called the oldest work of manga.

"Sage Mode" Jiraiya adds natural energy to this, rapidly increasing the size to gigantic proportions!! The created ball of light is a raging storm, coiling like a whirlpool. If it explodes, it can easily hollow out an entire mountain...!!

    A technique that transforms the earth surrounding the user into a fluid. Closing in on the enemy with high speed by swimming underground. The underground is a blind spot, so the target has no warning, allowing the user to launch a surprise attack. Kisame lets the "Samehada" protrude from the ground. By using this technique in conjunction with a weapon, it also gains a high assault ability.

    ↑The "Samehada" draws near like a shark's dorsal fin!!

    *Dochuu means "underground". Senkou means "submarine voyage". The kanji for Senkou separately mean "submerge" and "navigate/voyage". So together they mean "A voyage while 'submerged' under the earth". Or in better English "Subterranean Voyage".

    With the chakra flowing through all parts of one's body, the skin is hardened, increasing its defence power to its utmost limits. Furthermore, the destructive power of human bullet attacks** is increased, making this a great all-purpose technique. The amount of techniques that can break through the areas hardened by the "Earth Spear" are close to zero, not including its undeniable weak point: "Lightning Release Ninjutsu".

    ↑By invoking this technique the instant an attack hits, one gains an immortal body.

    *The names of Kakuzu's techniques don't make much sense at first sight. This is because Kishimoto took the names from the legendary mecha anime "Mobile Suit Gundam" (機動戦士ガンダム, Kidou Senshi Gandamu), slightly altered them in some cases, and thought of kanji for them. Domu comes from the MS-09 Dom (ドム).

    Tearing the earth apart by flowing concentrated chakra from the palm of one's hand into the "Dragon Veins" flowing underground. Manipulating these Dragon Veins requires fine chakra control, but if one has such skill, they can divide the space between the enemy and their own team in two, destroy destroy enemy camps or defences, and even use it as an attack.

    *If I'm not mistaken, dragon veins are a concept from Feng Shui. They are similar to the concept of ley lines, I think.

    ←By sensing the magnetic force, the user can pinpoint where they are, despite being underground.

    Thus technique changes earth into fine sand by flowing chakra through it, allowing the user to dig through it like a mole. While underground, one can sense what is happening on the surface and use that information to launch a surprise attack on the enemy. One can also hide deep in the ground, escaping to a depth where the enemy can't reach.

    *The kanji of "mogura" literally mean "earth dragon". Yes, the Japanese decided to call their moles earth dragons**. I love this language more with every minute.
    **It probably comes from the verb moguru (潜る, "to dive," "to get in," "to go underground"), though, but why let etymology stand in the way of a bad-ass name?

    ↑→Its huge mouth opens and crucifies the target against the surface of a wall, while at the same time, the sealing formula develops!!

    Chakra is completely blocked!!

    This technique draws a "sealing formula" on, for instance, the ground or a wall and completely blocks the target's chakra. In the centre of the sealing formula is the "閉" ("close," "shut") symbol. Furthermore, the tenketsu of the person caught in the centre are all closed. However, getting the target exactly inside the sealing formula is difficult. Therefore, one can make use of various measures, like preparing a puppet or ninja tool with the sealing formula.

    *Kannon is the bodhisattva of compassion. She is also widely known under her Chinese name, Guan Yin.

    An inexhaustible vortex, absorbing all techniques!!

    By spinning the chakra flow within one's body in the opposite direction, all of the opponent's techniques aimed at oneself will be absorbed. The absorbed chakra is dispersed within the body. Like a bottomless swamp, the power is swallowed.

    [picture of Pain's Preta Realm absorbing Jiraiya's Super-Big Ball Rasengan]
    ↑All techniques are absorbed and made ineffective, regardless of the nature of the chakra.

    *In my opinion, the way this name is written, with the kanji for "technique absorption" placed between the two kanji used to write "seal," emphasises the blocking and stopping aspect of the seal. Technically, it could also have been translated as "Sealing Technique Absorption Seal," but that felt a bit redundant.

    The "Wind" sharpens the "spiral," turning it into a blade who's one hit means certain death!!

    "Extreme"~~ Certainly, that's the most appropriate word for this technique. Adding "Wind" "nature manipulation" to the Rasengan, already boasting tremendous destructive power by having raised "shape transformation" to its utmost limits...!! With this sharp blade of wind, the killing power is drastically increased...!! Its weak point is that one needs to get close to and a hit. On the other hand, there is no-one who can withstand a direct hit. Even so, currently it's only 50% completed. The destructive power it will have once completed is unimaginable!!

    The technique left behind by a great hero is brought to a new height~~!!

    As the name suggest, its shape resembles that of a giant shuriken. However, it is actually composed of microscopic blades. The wind chakra whirling around the "spiral" is changed into countless blades, all striking the target at once......!!

    When he presses his hands together, a violent wind sets out faster then the speed of sound!!

    This technique transforms chakra and creates wind. When one's hands are clapped together, this wind is compressed and evolved into a fierce gale. The "Gale Palm" as just a isolated attack has the power to easily knock over a human.
    However, it's true value comes from using it in an attack together with projectile weapons like shuriken or kunai. The speed with which they fly through the air, the power with which they hit, and their ability to wound or even kill are all increased several times!!

    The "Akatsuki" members sit down and send out "though waves," converted into chakra. These thought waves are then picked up by Pain, acting as a kind of control tower. This technique amplifies the thought waves and broadcasts them to a specific location through illusionary bodies. The illusionary bodies differ from being mere reflections. While Pain is relaying the members' thoughts, they can still use various techniques.

Furthermore, if a Fire Release technique is thrown at the target after this technique is used, they will be enveloped in flames in an instant.

    *The Japanese for this sentence is 「油断大敵粘着弾」 ("Yudan Taiteki Nenchakudan"). Nenchakudan means "sticky bullet". "Yudan Taiteki" is a Japanese proverb, meaning "unpreparedness is one's greatest enemy". There's a pun involved here: Yudan (油断, unpreparedness, negligence) is written with the kanji for "oil" and "failure" and is pronounced the same as "oil bullet".

    This combination ninjutsu uses the wild rotation of the "Rasengan" to swallow up the water current created by the "Water Release: Tearing Torrent"*, creating a large quantity of water vapour. Once invoked, a strong wind whirls around inside the highly concentrated mist, turning it into a solid barrier, repelling techniques, attacks, and such. The mist created by the violent rotating of the "Rasengan" also has the effect of taking away the enemy's field of vision. Of course, the mist can be used as a smokescreen when escaping, but the confusion it creates can also be used , for instance, to launch a surprise attack. It can be said that this technique has exceedingly many practical uses.

    *The Eight Trigrams (Bāgu? in Chinese) come from Taoist cosmology and are closely related to the concept of Yin-Yang.

    There is a Chinese martial art based on this concept: Bāgu?zhǎng (八卦掌, Hakkeshou in Japanese), literally meaning "Eight Trigram Palm". It's an "internal" (n?ijiā, 內家) martial art, like T?ij?qu?n.

    The Hyuuga-style taijutsu is obviously based on this martial art. Not only is this evident from the names of their techniques, but also from the symbolism surrounding them. E.g. when Neji does the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms, a Bāgu? diagram appears beneath him.

    The Mysterious Destruction Insects* spread out!!
    Swarming towards chakra, they become a sphere!!

    This technique covers the enemy's entire body with the "Mysterious Destruction Insects" living inside the user's body. The chakra sensing "Mysterious Destruction Insects" spread over a wide range. The moment they locate the enemy, the insects, following the user's orders, gather at once. They restrain the enemy and start eating away at his chakra bit by bit. Before long, death will arrive...

    [picture of Shino being surrounded by his bugs]
    [picture of Tobi being covered in Shinos' bugs]
    ↑→The person inside the "Insect Sphere" will taste the fear of having their chakra eaten while they are still alive!!

    *The kanji for Kikaichuu (奇壊蟲), the name of Shino's insects, literally mean "Strange Destruction Insects". Both the first and last kanji of "kikai" appear in words also pronounced a kikai. When written as 奇怪, kikai means "strange," or "mysterious". When written as 毀壊, kikai means "demolish," "destroy".
    I used "mysterious" instead of "strange" because I found it more fitting for the Aburame.

    Users: Yamato, Shodai Hokage

    ↓What appears on the palm is the order from the user facing the Bijuu.
    [picture of Yamato holding out his hand with the kanji for "seat" (座, za)** on it]

    A technique that uses the power of the "Wood Release Technique" and forcibly suppresses a Bijuu's chakra. To invoke this technique, it is necessary for the Bijuu or Jinchuuriki to be in the possession of the "Crystal Gem" (結晶石, Kesshouseki) that responds to the Shodai Hokage's chakra. Touching the Bijuu's chakra with their hand, the user then suppresses the chakra inside an area lined with ten pillars.

    *This name requires a lot of explanation. First of all, I'll explain the "jijun" part. This is the Japanese term for a man's sixtieth to sixty-ninth age. It comes from a saying by Confucius: 六十而耳顺 (li?sh? ?r ěr sh?n). It has a variety of interpretations, but the most popular one is that of master Nan Huai-Chin: "At sixty I was able to listen to everything without feeling unhappy". The reasoning behind this is that at sixty, one is able to know clearly the difference between good and bad, allowing one's mind to become calm and thus allowing one to be able to listen to everything without feeling unhappy.
    However it can also be interpreted as "at sixty, my ear was an obedient organ for the reception of truth," and "at sixty, I heard them with docile ears," which might be a bit more relevant to this technique.

    Next is the last part of the name: "Kakuan Nitten Suishu". "Nitten Suishu" comes from comes from a famous series of short poems and accompanying images, called the Ten Bull Pictures (十牛図, Jūgyū-zu; Chinese: Sh?ni?-t?). The pictures and poems are intended to illustrate the stages of Zen discipline. They were drawn by a twelfth-century Chinese Zen master called Ku?ān (廓庵, Kakuan in Japanese). The tenth poem talks about how the fully-enlightened herdsman returns to the city to help others reach enlightenment. This poem is called R?ch?n Chu?shǒu (入鄽垂手, "Nitten Suishu" in Japanese), which can be translated as "entering society with bliss-bringing hands" (i.e. hands that teach how to reach enlightenment).

    **This kanji is probably short for the term "osuwari" (お座り), meaning "sit down". This is the order given to dogs when they are told to sit in Japanese.

    From one's sleeves come two big snakes, capturing the spellbound target!

    Two big summoned snakes crawl out from one's cuffs, and coil around the enemy before one's eyes, capturing them. This technique is great for capturing someone alive, great for inflicting damage by constriction, and if the situation calls for it, it's even great for having the snakes bite the victim with their poison fangs...!! With the summons specified beforehand, the procedure can be shortened by using blood on a summoning "contract seal" (結印, ketsuin), making it possible to invoke the technique immediately

    The person captured~~
    Their fate is in the hands of the user...

    [picture of Sasuke stopping Suigetsu and Juugo]
    [picture of Orochimaru appearing next to Kabuto]
    ↑→Compared to normal summons, these summoned snakes are on a whole other level with intelligence and strength. It is said that even shinobi with great skill are unable to escape from this restraint!

    *Jubaku is really just a Japanese word for "spell," or "curse". However, the kanji literally mean "spell/curse bind". Since this is a restraining technique, I decided to emphasize the "bind" part of the word. The "glare' part of the name also has the additional mean of "keeping someone down with fear".

    This technique makes a Shadow Clone take in "Explosive Clay" and causes it to explode, creating a diversion that can be used to escape. With a "Suicide Bombing Announcement" the enemy's wariness is heightened and this opportunity is used to switch places with a Shadow Clone. A technique that requires one to be adept at verbal tricks; with this foundation of using many "arts" to trifle with the enemy, it certainly fulfils its purpose.

    [picture of Deidara's Suicide Bombing Clone expanding]
    ←"Behold the ultimate art"!! With these words, this ominously squirming body draws the enemy's attention

    *Katsu (喝, "scold") is a shout used in Zen Buddhism to express one's own enlightened state and to induce another person to move beyong rationality and logic and possibly even achieve an initial enlightenment experience.

    Interweaving one's life with the battlefront
    Squirming jet black tentacles!!

    Using chakra to manipulate black tentacles produced from inside the body itself, this grotesque technique allows for remote attacks. This allows Kakuzu to use a strategy without having to wait for the right oppertunity. Also, by using the tentacles to steal the hearts of other people, one takes in their respective chakra natures, allowing the use of techniques requiring any of the basic five elemental natures. This also gives the user semi-permanent longevity.

    ↓Tentacles with sharp pointed ends can also be used as sutures...

    *The names of Kakuzu's techniques don't make much sense at first sight. This is because Kishimoto took the names from the legendary mecha anime "Mobile Suit Gundam" (機動戦士ガンダム, Kidou Senshi Gandamu), slightly altered them in some cases, and thought of kanji for them. Jiongu comes from the MSN-02 Zeong (ジオング, Jiongu), a mecha that can detach its arms for ranged attacks. The arms remains attached to the main body with wires.

    ↑The second step is stepping into a circle drawn with the user's own blood. If one is to leave the circle, the effect disappears.

    [picture of Asuma receiving the damage Hidan inflicted on his own leg]
    ↑When wounded while inside the circle, the target receives the same wound~~!!

    *Jujutsu is usually translated as "sorcery," or "incantation". The kanji separately mean "curse technique," or "spell technique". I chose the more literal translation of "curse technique" as it is more fitting.

    **This comes from the Japanese proverb 「人を呪わば穴二つ」(Hito o onowaba ana futatsu), meaning "he who curses someone else will see two graves"; the Japanese equivalent of the English proverb "curses like chickens come home to roost". It basically means that if you do something bad to someone else, it will come back at you.

    A combination of a ninjutsu specific to the Nara clan with a ninja tool, this ninja technique is one only Shikamaru's ingeniosity could have produced. He lets the chakra knives absorb his own chakra beforehand, granting more effectiveness to the shadow jutsu. By throwing those weapons, pinning them into the opponent's shadow, the caster can activate Kage Mane no jutsu and compel said opponent to mimic their movements. This ninjutsu also makes up for the added difficulty of efficiency loss should the enemy notice it.

    Main text

    A secret technique of the Nara clan, as well as the one among their shadow-employing ninjutsu, with a secondary, offensive purpose that makes use of how the shadows are turned into physical substance. Changing one's shadow into a multitude of razor-sharp spikes, and managing each one of them individually...!! In addition to attacking multiple targets simultaneously, the shadow threads are embroidered into them (tn: ouch!), robbing them of their mobility. Since it's a physical attack, just like Kage Mane no jutsu (Shadow Imitation technique), one cannot manage to apprehend someone without harming them. But conversely, its fast activation and sustaining period make it excellent for emergency capture.

    Caption

    The shadows turned into razor-sharp spikes pierce through multiple enemies!!

    -Initially, the jutsu's made to pin down its target, but depending on the opponent, it is also possible to kill them off in one blow. A particularity that proves most useful for logistical support.

    This infiltration technique is characteristic of Zetsu. It allows him to merge his body with the ground and flora and travel at high speed.
    His insectivorous plant-like shell has the ability to merge with the ground, because it is tinged with his chakra. Then, using the underground network of organic matter, consisting of things like plant roots and water veins, he can travel everywhere with high speed. While using this technique, his presence is completely concealed. No person would be able to perceive Zetsu's existence.

    *Mayflies are insects, well-known for having a very short lifespan. Adult mayflies only life for half an hour to a day, depending on the species.

    Kagerou may also be short for "usubakagerou" (薄羽蜉蝣), the Japanese name for the adult antlion (these adults have no wide-spread name in English). The larv? of this insect, the antlions proper, are well-known for burrowing sand pits in which they trap ants and such. These larv? (and the pits they dig) are called arijigoku (蟻地獄, "ant hell") in Japanese.

    Main text

    In comparison to Kage Nui, a jutsu in the same vein of utilization of materialized shadows, the emphasis is put on subtlety in the shadows' movements. Basically, one turns their shadow into countless, slender tendrils and extends them, so they can be pulled, converging towards the hand. Additionally, it is also possible to use the hand's dexterity to pick up and throw a weapon such as a kunai with the tendril-like shadows. The different ways it can be used would fill a book.

    -The squirming, elaborate shadow tendrils move at the caster's demand!!

    -From numbers and length to orientation, the extending tendrils are at one's beck and call!

    -Used in synergy with ninja tools, the jutsu displays maximal efficiency! Its management is minute enough to allow accurate insertion into a small aperture.

    Changing the dimension in one's field of vision.
    A lavish, unparalleled dimensional doujutsu!!

    Kakashi's original doujutsu, released from the "Mangekyou Sharingan". It allows one to transfer anything to another dimension. If one spends a lot of time and trains one's chakra over and over again, this technique can be invoked. The target is enveloped with a barrier space, and the user concentrates their mind to what they gaze at... The target can struggle helplessly, but against this technique no defence is possible. No matter what, the space will distort and draw the target in.

    [picture of Kakashi's Mangekyou Sharingan]
    →One glare with the "Mangekyou Sharingan". The barrier's location and size can be specified at will.

    [picture of Deidara's elbow being hit by Kamui]

    [picture sequence of Deidara's elbow disappearing]
    ↑When the technique is invoked, the space at the centre of the barrier is distorted and the target inside the barrier is drawn in completely... There is no technique that can compete against this one. It's a dreadful technique that, with skilled use, can even pull an entire human being into another dimension.

    The scenery becomes twisted. And after that~~~!!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The trap created by great power

    The "Mangekyou Sharingan" is a doujutsu that, with continuous usage, burdens the user with the loss of their eyesight. Since this is the source of "Kamui," using it in rapid succession puts Kakashi's body at risk as well.

    [picture of Kakashi holding his hand over his eye]
    ↑Kakashi obtained his "Sharingan" though a transplant. The strain his body suffers may be far more severe than the a member of the "Uchiha clan" would suffer.

    *Kamui refers to the power, might, and authority of the Gods. That which makes the Gods gods. "Kamu" (神) comes from "kami," meaning "god" or "gods". "I" (威) is a kanji with a complex meaning. The dictionary I use describes it as 「人をおそれ従わせる力。」 ("the power to compel people to do one's bidding through fear"). It also describes it as 「威厳があってしかも荒々しくない。君子の理想的な人柄をいう。」 ("dignity without roughness. The ideal personality of a man of virtue").
    I believe it would be best translated as "authority," "majesty," or "might".

    An wide scope barrier tactic that detects all those who enter it!!

    This technique creates a spherical detection barrier with the user at the centre. At the user's command, the detection barrier can expand, grasping everything in the room. The user is able to detect anyone who moves inside the barrier space with their own "sense"

    ↑→Jiraiya's detection barrier easily envelops even Gamaken's big frame. He can fill any space required for the battle...!!

    *Hou means "law," "method," or "ritual". Jin means "formation," or "encampment". Houjin is the word used for, for instance, the circle diagrams used in alchemy.

    Spoiler: Databook 3 - Kibaku Nendo
    Explosive Clay (起爆粘土, Kibaku Nendo)
    Ninjutsu, Hiden, Offensive, Defensive, Supplementary, All ranges
    User: Deidara

    By sculpting and blowing up, the enemy is destroyed!
    Ultimate art, interweaving destruction with plastic beauty!!

    Art~~ That is, an object with a certain form that, in an instant, is bereaved of that shape and sublimates... in other words, an "explosion"!
    Deidara's characteristic technique takes that sort of definite view of art and puts it to practical use by uniting it with ninjutsu... That is "Exploding Clay". The clay is endowed with explosive properties by biting into it with one of the several mouth found across Deidara's body and mixing it with chakra. In a flash, the clay, moulded into various forms, gives rise to a giant explosion with a yell of "Katsu"*. Because the statues can be remotely controlled at will with chakra, it is possible to launch an attack from anywhere, be it land sea, or air. Also, by varying the chakra mixed in with the clay, one can create a great variety of "Explosive Clay," all with different effects and scope.

    [picture of Deidara consuming clay with the mouth on his hand]
    ←He can easily use the "mouths" in either of his hands, but he uses the left one the most.

    [picture of Deidara saying his infamous quote "art is a bang"**]
    ↑The user can make the clay explode at any time.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Depending on the of chakra kneaded through, there are different methods of "Exploding Clay"!!

    ●C1●
    This small-sized "Exploding Clay", its explosive power restrained to the utmost, is mainly used for covert actions, surprise attacks, and the like. The design of the bombs often takes the shape of deformed beetles.

    ●C2●
    While the user is riding on the back of this giant dragon***-shaped "Exploding Clay," the target is pursued by the guided missiles spit from its mouth! It is utilised to its greatest effect when combined with landmines, placed beforehand.

    ●C3●
    [picture of Deidara detonating his C3 bomb above Sunagakure]
    ↑Deidara himself calls this his "pride". The explosive power is especially great, capable of even destroying a village!

    It's a simple type, dropped down from the sky, but when only considering explosive power, it boasts the highest level. The explosion's scale and beauty, and the humanoid design of the "Explosive Clay," doing away with any and all excess lines, are something to be proud of.

    ●C4●
    When this gigantic puppet, modelled after Deidara himself, ruptures, extremely small bombs are released and scattered across a wide range. When these nano-sized bombs, impossible to be seen with ordinary human eyes, are inhaled, they will set themselves everywhere inside the body. The countless small explosions occurring throughout the body will destroy the target's body from within at the cellular level. The person themselves will be dead before they notice the attack!!

    [picture of Deidara's C4 about to explode]
    ←Using the blast of the figure's explosion, the tiny bombs are scattered across a vast range!!

    *Katsu (喝, "scold") is a shout used in Zen Buddhism to express one's own enlightened state and to induce another person to move beyond rationality and logic and possibly even achieve an initial enlightenment experience.
    **"Art is a bang" (芸術は爆発だ, "Geijutsu wa bakuhatsu da") is actually a quote of the famous Japanese artist Okamoto Tarou (岡本太郎). A lot of Deidara's character and artstyle is based on Okamoto and his works.
    ***The dragon meant here is the Western-style dragon (ドラゴン, doragon), not the Japanese (or more generally Asian) dragon (龍, Ryuu).
