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.

I do not see a Difficulty Setting listed. Please choose one from here.
Please list the actual techniques and weapons from the indexes, if you want to save space, place them in spoilers. This is really half-assed, it's easier for people to see everything in your bio than having to search the indexes for them due to laziness.
Are you not going to choose any Secondary Weapons or Accessories? You get up to 2 Main Weapons, 3 Packs of Secondary Weapons, and 3 Accessories, all must be C-Rank and below. I'd advise you choose something now -- it will save you ryo later on.

"EVERYONE! MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE! THE 27TH ANNUAL CELEBRATION OF LIFE IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!!!"
Abruptly, the once untamed crowds halted in their place, the lack of modern technology in the humble town causing me to raise an eyebrow, due to the resonant voice effortlessly reaching every corner of the village without normal means. "Celebration of Life?... Fuck it, might as well...", I remarked, carelessly scarfing the mixed peanuts down my throat. The chaotic nature of the entire festival had suddenly shifted gears, the stupendous numbers that I had become meshed into obediently hastening toward the announcer's destination, and without hesitation, I decided to move with the flow unquestionably. While the anticipation of the multiple faces -- young and old -- advised that my prediction was becoming more reasonable than I thought, I couldn't help but completely despise the ignorance that I harbored of the town's culture and people. The information about this village, or rather entire country for that matter, was nothing but hieroglyphics to me... I was practically a mouse in a maze.
Once several minutes of pure agitated movement had passed, the village people, fellow travelers, and myself ceased before a field of a thousand cherry-blossom petals, every step kicking the leaves into a drifting fluster. The scenery was enthralling; a mixture of scattered trees and nature's complexions screamed the definition of "peace" louder than any other location the village provided. Investigating the area, I noted the feeble wooden fence that stretched around a perimeter, maintaining the crowd at bay, while confining the open, square epicenter that extended at least sixty meters from fence-to-fence. Breathlessly, the attendees bickered amongst themselves in hallow whispers, surrounding what appeared to be a stage or arena... could we have possibly come to this location to witness an exotic ritual, perhaps? Mischievous images spawned in my mind, fantasizing half-naked, nature-themed beauts swaying provocatively for my attention, and the thought alone began to stain my face with a crimson blush...

the town of endless spring and new beginnings; hidden in the youth of nature. H A R U S A K I - G A I K U cherry blossoms dance in a halycon breeze; a festival of enlightenment beckons.
The entire village of HARUSAKI TOWN had been thrown into a loud, rhapsodic parade in the midst of the evening, festive designs and the aroma of mouthwatering treats mesmerizing the simple-minded townsfolk into slaves of a rave. Although the mirage felt like decades since I had last been engulfed in such a celebratory event, the bitter-half of me absolutely resented the scene with disgust. The region of the Fire Country was expansive, and the optimal routes literally had no end, but I hadn't journeyed this extensively into the foreign land without a passionate reason to guide me; there was myths about a power source that once rampaged through the verdant country, and upon hearing about it's dreaded, forbidden nature, the source itself instantly became one treasure that would be invaluable in my collection. I silently became frustrated, being unable to hear my own thoughts with the intense chatter that surrounded me. However, I came equipped with a loose, amber cloak and a bag of mixed peanuts to snack on, maneuvering through the huge crowds almost nonchalantly, while utilizing this convenient event to recuperate before the time came to revive the search. There was no person of interest or destination, I was simply killing time; but even such pacifistic merrymaking couldn't disguise the strange aura in the vicinity, and it was bound to get more than interesting quite soon, especially with Sunagakure's Human Sandstorm waiting impatiently amongst the excitement...

1. Mind Diving Destruction - This technique needs to be pushed to 2x High to activate, and personally a lot more handseals than just one. The lowest I would be able to tolerate is 6 handseals, considering this a more deadly option than Mind Derangement, a cousin Yamanaka technique. Lastly, what exactly does "Target(s) can escape the effects prematurely by creating a surge of chakra in their body" mean? I don't understand how someone would be able to notice this without being affected and deciding to escape the pain. Please elaborate or remove this part, and just add that the user can escape the pain through the same "breaking" rules as Shintenshin.
2. Mind Diving Corruption - I really... don't understand the usefulness of this technique in this state, because the effects you have now can honestly already be achieved with the previous technique -- a severe headache would cause a decent enough pain to hinder senses, whether it's chakra-improved or not. My suggestion? For a S-Rank technique, if you change the requirement to you having to touch them, I could see it completely knocking them unconscious, retraining enabling a longer period of the "mental shutdown". This affliction isn't really achievable in Yamanaka, and for a technique of this caliber, it personally feels like a better grab than what you are trying to achieve now.
3. Mind Delve Gallery - "Is able to gain in-character the knowledge of a targets out-of-character background." <-- wat? I don't understand what this means in the slightest; you should only be capable of retrieving information that happened in-character. Please elaborate or remove this.
4. RDS: Opening/Closing- Please remove the "(Per Event)" part from the Chakra section -- it is no longer necessary. I'm also extremely iffy about these allowing a false memory/memory erase to be permanently implanted in a target's mind... I'll see what you/other staff have to say about this.
