The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.
Aki felt tension in her gut but her body was loose as she stood waiting. She was in the open field of her own free will and had no desire to back out. It was simply strange to know that what was about to happen would go beyond the safety boundaries of school and training. She’d grown up in an environment meant to teach and while injury occurred it was never an intentional result and rarely severe.
Moving her feet a comfortable distance apart she placed her fist against her open hand in front of her heart and focused on her breathing. It would be different and to a certain extent shocking but she’d been trained well and by the time her opponent appeared she was standing ready, posture alert but relaxed.
Hands moved rather quickly as the male performed handseals, around twenty meters away from his opponent. The grassy field that separated them would be soon filed with death and decay. In a mater of a couple of seconds, an electrically energized being appeared by the side of Kaname, mirroring his appearance. The shocking clone rapidly charged towards his opponent, the battle had officially begun. Meanwhile, Kaname stayed ready for any sudden attack. He wouldn't be caught surprised any time soon. Sword at waist, he'd be ready to parry any strike sent towards him.
Denkou Bunshin no Jutsu (Shocking Clone Technique)[1X] Rank:C Type:Offensive / Raiton Ninjutsu Range:See special! Special:Clone speed matches that of the user, and can go anywhere the user can. Up to one clone can be made at a time, plus one more each time retrained. Explosion range covers 5 meters. Description:With this technique, the Raiton user is able to call upon aid from a perfect copy of themselves. Comprised purely of lightning, this clone retains the user movement speed and can share linked mental judgement. Best of all, due to its flowing essence, many solid attacks pass through the clone, shocking instead whatever was used to strike them. Finally, when defeated, the clone explodes into a storm of lightning that aims to take over the nearest opponent available, taking over their body whole as it is shocked. Domain:Raiton.
Aki didn't have as many options as she might have to deal with a clone but bypassing her tonfa's she flicked the clasp on her on her senbon holster as she crouched low. Rather then engage the clone she waited until the last moment and dodged to the right at the right of its line of charge. Hands moving dexterously in the forms she’d learned to the point where they were practically a part of her. Five of her senbon levitated up from her holster as she continued to move in order to try and put distance between her and the clone as the senbon streaked toward the stationary caster.
[spoilers]Soushuuha (Manipulate Advancing Blades) Rank: C Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: 0 – 10 meters Special: When first learned, the user can control up to 5 projectiles/secondary weapons, and send it flying up to 5 meters. However, each time re-trained, their control number goes up by 5, and their travel distance increases by 5 more meters. Description: Soushuuha is a ninjutsu technique used in order to give aerial projectiles a slight edge in combat. After the needed handseals, this technique allows the user to hover multiple projectiles, like kunai, in the air while they approach a target. With only a single handseal, they can then unleash a torrent of projectiles much faster than if each was thrown individually.[/spoilers]
Ah! But a clone wasn't stupid at all. He couldn't only move in one straight line. He could change his destination at a moments notice. That wasn't necessary, moving at the last possible moment wasn't smart. Close proximity was all the clone needed and considering he moved when there was but a meter left before them gave Kaname enough time to make his favorite handseal and cause the clone to explode in an electrical wave and likely critically injure the opponent who had yet to even leave the five meter radius furthermore, the electricity would likely disable the handseals Ito had intended on doing.
"That should be all."
He spoke arrogantly, of course, this was only if all went according to plan.
'FUCK!' Would have been an accurate summery of Aki's thoughts as the clone to her left detonated. Clones were a tricky thing to deal with when you had no idea what variety they were and there were more types then drunks in a bar. Physical, illusionary, couldn't forget explosive either. Some were dumber than a bag of hammers and others as smart as their creator, a fact which didn't rule out bag of hammers level intelligence in all cases.
Seemingly thrown hard by the concussive force the illusion only remained for a moment before being torn apart, the chunk of sod hastily cast up as she sprang forward like a startled cat bursting apart on impact. It was not the most elegant of maneuvers, far from it but Aki was in one piece though her ears were ringing and her whole frame shaking with the nearness of the miss. If she'd been closer she'd have been caught for sure.
It mattered little though as training took over. The she didn't know if the clone had any physical substance but it was certainly energy based given how it had nearly ignited the clump of grass and soil. Possibly dual attributed, likely only summoned one at a time given how much of a cock her opponent was behaving like. He'd have probably summoned all of them he could at once just to crush her.
Thoughts moving faster then form could ever hope to she bolted, tonfa's drawn, toward the summoner to try and lock him up before he could complete a second clone or offensive jutsu. Alone and without proper information she didn't have any option but to move in stages as she felt him out and pray she could do so fast enough to stay in the fight.
[spoilers]Kawarimi no Jutsu (Body Replacement Technique) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Special: Switch is near-instantaneous. Can be used once per thread, plus once more each time retrained (+2) Description: This jutsu lets the user quickly switch places with another nearby object, such as a plant (normally a section of a log), an animal, or even another person within reach, the moment an attack hits. This creates an optical illusion, making the enemy think the attack was successful. The user can then use this confusion to escape or launch a counter-attack - i.e. exploding tags can be attached to the replacement for an added surprise. Domain: Academy Student Ninjutsu.[/spoilers]

He spoke as he witnessed the opponent evade the maneuver at the very last second. However, he had already begun new hand seals and it only took him a bit of time before another clone would be summoned, one second later and he'd have been caught by the opponents choice of weaponry. The clone appeared before Kaname as the original hopped back a few steps making another series of handseals, this time that of another clone. How would this opponent be able to defeat three of these formidable opponents he wondered. Only time would tell. The Hokage would now have been five meters from his original spot with two clones separating both he and his opponent. One clone had been located directly side by side with the village leader while the first clone stood before the opponent, but one meter away.
