Bakuto The Raikage
Location: The Battle at the Outskirts of Kumogakure
Interactions with: @Savato The General
Bakuto found himself in this predicament of fighting someone who is a master at the art of war unfazed by the earthquake Bakuto created. The general was up to something and due to his own movements and dealing with the clones Bakuto barely heard what Gozubura was doing. Not knowing what Bakuto had to keep on his guard the general is known in the cloud for devastating jutsus and being dangerously cunning.
The winds were strong and lightning ninjutsu was out of play or at least lightning jutsu that had to go through the air.
Bakuto had little time to prepare as Gozubura's next attack was on him. Bakuto notice something was off not that he could see them but he could hear from their movements something wasnt right. One was trying to grab him the other with the sword drawn. Nothing seemed off but that was puzzling Bakuto. Bakuto didn't have much time to weave hand seals to use his jutsu that required it. All he could do is dodge or block, picking the former over the latter.
"My crown as Raikage as you put it wont brushed aside so easily General. Being a war veteran as yourself what it means for someone to be a kage."
Bakuto weaved seals quickly as he slowed down, Tiger, Boar, Ox, Dog, Snake the simple body replacement technique or Substitution jutsu. Letting the thing grab him as he casts the jutsu looking to switch places with one of his four lightning clones that were still watching or rather listening. The clone used in the substitution would activate as the lightning clone would discharging at contact with the other with a violent shock of lightning
Talking out from one of the now four corners Bakuto speaks rather amused by the battle, "It is like fighting my sensei. Just like the third Raikage careful thinking out everything down to every movement. If one of us don't do something this fight isn't going to end anytime soon. So..." Bakuto draws his sword the uniquely shaped duel prong and bladed tuning fork sword. The other three now remaining clones draw their swords. Bakuto then finally resumes speaking, "Let's drop all pretense General. You came to the village to kill me the Raikage for your organization ,and I must kill you to protect the people of my village. Cannot keep those waiting for us to kill the other, It is time for us to end this."
Channeling his chakra into his sword using his chakra to cause the sword to vibrate and ring out. The three clones do the same. The four corners of the area surrounded by the original Bakuto, and three corners four swords ringing out as it gets enhanced with chakra. "Sound Release: Slicing Sound Wave" Bakuto followed up slicing towards Gozubura from the north end of the battlefield sending a slicing wave a sound moving at a speed as an arrow fired from a bow. The clones do the same while their attack will only be a fraction to the strength of the attack it still has cutting power behind it. Looking to attack the General with a barrage of sound chakra slicing waves. Bakuto was only trying to get Gozubura from easily attacking the way he has been with his clones.
The resentment from the Hyuga was rather amusing but also irritating to Tashiro he grabs his own radio and spoke to Kai, "Alright we have a general idea of where we are to be going should the intel by the Amekage prove correct. Kurin gave us orders, We are to go to the place that was given to use and if we are to spot the enemies we are not to confront them but to just keep an eye on him. So when we get to the area Kai you and Nousagi use your guys eyes and scope out the area. Keep an eye out as we approach we dont know if they left any surprises or are expecting us, so be ready for anything. You can meet up with us or follow from a distance the choice is yours, assuming you are still watching from your spot."
Tashiro cuts the radio off and then hears the other joining the group a rain shinobi. At least finally there is someone somewhat pleasant since arriving to this village. Tashiro then greets the new shinobi, "We would appreciate your help. You have nothing to worry about we don't have any intentions to start anything with your village. If you havent heard we are going out to get some eyes on the rogue shinobi that just fled from here. Feel free to pitch in as you want just remember we are going after powerful criminals that can kill a kage."
Tashiro then stops and gets in Nousagi's face, "As for you, I don't like being in charge as much as you hate it, our squad leader put me in charge. That was Kurin's choice not mine but we have to deal with it as a shinobi must. We follow orders so cut it out and fall in line. I don't care if you are from one of the village's noble clan, you call me dirt boy again and I will see to it that you eat dirt. Do I make myself clear?" Not waiting for an answer Tashiro turns to Kaito, "Let's get going we have ground to make up. If we dont catch up before our targets leave we might not catch them. Rain dude if you have any insight of those we are going after you can fill us in on our way to the their location that Lady Amekage provided for us. So let's go." Heading out wanting to get to where the Amekage said they should go.
